The Chivers are a group of local realtors who dedicate their passion and knowledge to

one thing: Lakes Country. 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. This gift from nature drives us to

share our passion with our clients. Get connected with the outdoors in your every day

life. Get out and explore! Lake life is a lifestyle which we love. It’s a lifestyle we know

and like to share. We love lake life and we know a place for you.
