Michigan Real Estate agent lake specialist

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One 6501304423

Are you looking for a Michigan realtor that is a lake specialist?  A real estate agent that really knows the local lakes and can tell you which lakes to look at?  Sometimes a lake has different sections with different homes on it.  A good real estate agent that specializes in lake homes and have a big knowledge of SE Michigan Lakes.

Russ Ravary Top lake real estate agent A good real estate agent that knows about the local lakes in Oakland, Livingston, Wayne, Genessee, and Washtenaw Counties is worth their weight in gold.  You have come to the right place if you need information about the lake.  I have three indepth lake websites that explain all about the lakes and the waterfront homes on them.  The three lake websites are http://www.michiganlakerealestatehomes.com and http://www.oaklandcountylakefronthomesmi.com and http://www.oaklandcountylakesmi.com.  There are over 230 lakes in southeast Michigan on these websites.  You have photos, videos, and so much more lake information at your finger tips now.  Thousands of lake home buyers and sellers visit these websites each month.  I really know the lakes.

Even appraisers and other realtors have made my websites their "go to place" on Southeastern Michigan lakes and lake homes.  It always makes me feel good to be able to help real estate appraisers understand about the different lakes and how they compare.  I have learned so much about the lakes that I have probably become the most knowledgeable real estate agent on SE Michigan lakes.

How did I start down this road?  I was working with a Ford engineer that wanted a lake house.  He wanted indepth information on the lakes we were looking at.  He wanted to know sizes, depths, and source of water.  When I went to look for that information....it was really hard to find.  I had to search books, and 20 pages on google for different search terms on the lake.  I would put in "size of the lake", the "lake depth", and "maps".  Many times I could not find the information.

Marianne RavaryI just did not decide to be a lake specialist on Oakland County lakes in the beginning.  Here is how I came about to be a realtor that specializes in Oakland County Lakes.  In 2010 I lost my wife to breast cancer.  It tore me apart to lose Marianne.  I was lost and could not handle the loss.  I decided that I would start to learn about the lakes and put together an information website on our local lakes.  I started to go around to the lakes taking pictures and talking to the lake residents.  I did this for two to three months.  It was my way of dealing with a loss.  Out of a bad situation came good.  Marianne would have liked this.

I put together the first website over the winter.  Over the years I have added the other two websites.  I have tried to put together webpages that correspond to different search terms you would use on google.  Even this page is being added because a lake home buyer said she put in the search term on google "real estate agent that specializes in lake homes" and nothing came up.  I specialize in helping buyers find the right lake and right lake home.  I save Metro Detroit home buyers time and energy when they are looking at lake homes.  I can point out other lakes that fit them.  My indepth lake and lake home knowledge saves them from making a mistake.  For sellers I can feature their home on the website.  I know their lake and market their home the way only a lake realtor can.  Being an Oakland County realtor that specializes in lake homes and local lakes makes me different from real estate agents that barely have a knowledge of a lake.

These websites help so many people.  It's my way of doing good each day.  Not every lake home buyer will use me, but if they make a smarter lake home buying decision then I have done a good thing.  I live on a lake so I understand all about lake living.  I understand that every lake home buyer has different reasons on why they want to live on a lake, and that they have different needs and wants.  Some lakes just will not fit them.  That is where my knowledge comes in to make your move smoother and less stressful.

Marketing as a Lake Specialist is a great move up there. We are at the end of a week, ready for a long Holiday weekend.  Go ahead and eat that second piece of pie.  Happy Thanksgiving all!  bill

Good morning, Russ... what a wonderful post... and I'm so glad that the loss of your beautiful wife spurred you on to something that you love so much. She was certainly watching over you. We have two large man-made lakes in the Charlotte area and I sell an occasional house on them... but I also realize that this is a niche that requires a depth of knowledge that I probably will never have.
