The first day of the new millennium, January 1, 2000 was on of the most keenly anticipated events in recent memory. It was a particularly special day for Chris Docksteader. That was the day Chris arrived in Lake Country for good. He'd visited the area as a child growing up in Vancouver, but when a job promotion meant relocating here, he viewed the move as an amazing gift and opportunity. At the time, he and his wife had a young daughter and another baby on the way. Chris quickly found himself captivated by the incredible lifestyle that Lake Country offers. He couldn't imagine a better place to live and raise a family.
AN OUTDOORS ENTHUSIAST'S PLAYGROUND
Fast forward to the present day and Chris' passion for the area has never wavered. In fact, there are few things that give him more pleasure than watching someone experience Lake Country for the first time. From natural hiking trails to snow skiing in the champagne powder of Big White or Silver Star to wakeboarding atop the glassy, torquoise waters of Wood Lake, Kalamalka Lake or Okanagan Lake to world class golf at Predator Ridge, Lake Country offers something for everyone in one of the most beautiful settings on earth. Chris and his family live the lifestyle to the fullest, playing hockey on the frozen lakes in winter, exploring the mountains and soaking up warm summer nights, relaxing by a bonfire.
Despite being surrounded by a world of fast-paced activity at every turn, Chris' favorite Lake Country pastime might just be the simple pleasure of floating on Kalamalka Lake with his wife and two daughters on their boat. Looking over the tranquil water to the evergreen-covered mountains that line the Okanagan Valley, Chris can't help but smile. "It's breathtaking," he says. "Life doesn't get much better than this."
Chris' passion for the Lake Country area and lifestyle is also at the core of his success in the real estate business. Not long after arriving in Lake Country, he realized that his love for Lake Country living begged for a role in which he could help others achieve the same high quality of life he experiences daily. He found it in real estate. As one of Lake Country's premier real estate professionals and a true local expert, nothing gives Chris a greater thrill than helping others make the most of their real estate opportunities in order to live the lifestyle to the fullest. He is intimately knowledgeable of the unique characteristics and features of each of Lake Country's four principal neighborhoods: Winfield, Okanagan Centre, Carrs Landing & Oyama.
Chris doesn't view his role as that of a salesperson. Instead, he considers himself a consultant who conducts all the research in order to provide his clients with the information they need to make the best decisions for their individual Lake Country real estate goals. He starts by listening carefully to people's goals and then devises a strategic plan to help achieve them. Blending his network of local contacts with strong negotiating skills, it's no wonder he's built an impeccable track record and a reputation as Lake Country's best real estate resource.
