Lakes Country is our home and we dedicate our passion and knowledge to one thing: Lake Life. When Jack Chivers came to Detroit Lakes in 1966, he fell in love with the beauty of this area and never left again. We believe that living at the lake is more than just establishing a homestead. The gift of nature with all its beauty is driving us every day to share this special lifestyle with our clients. We want you to get connected with the outdoors in your everyday life. Get out and explore! We live lake life year-around and are very passionate about sharing our lifestyle with you.
Jack Chivers, our founder, grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and wanted to see the world. After joining the Navy and sailing all seven seas, his path led him to Minnesota, where he immediately became enamored with Lake Life. He made Detroit Lakes his home and began working as a full-time commercial real estate agent for a Minneapolis based firm on April 1st, 1966. Jack worked in that role for 13 years before he found his niche as a local lakes expert and opened his own agency on June 2, 1980.
Today, Jack Chivers Realty has become an anchor in the local real estate marketplace and is known far beyond local borders, with locations in Detroit Lakes, Perham, Vergas, and downtown Fargo. Jack has retired from our agency in 2018 and we are proud to continue his legacy in promoting Lakes Country and lake life. We love lake life and we know a place for you!
At Jack Chivers Realty you will find a staff of locally experienced and highly productive agents all poised to serve any and all of your real estate needs. When it comes to premier Minnesota real estate, if it’s not listed with Jack Chivers Realty... is it really for sale?
