God made the earth and our bodies primarily water...I am convinced that is why I have such a ‘soul' connection to blue water! My love for the water and enjoyment of working with people makes selling real estate on our great Lake Wawasee a perfect fit. I have lived around Lake Wawasee all my life, the energy in our community when all our lake owners are ‘home' and buzzing around during the summer is most exhilarating. I love living on Lake Wawasee in Syracuse Indiana! What many buyers have experienced with my help is the realization of extremely good investment opportunities in dirt, always more enjoyable than buying and trading paper! If you haven't spent time on our lakes in the summertime, you need to visit on a clear Indiana blue sky day, water lapping the docks, jet skis having a great time running around, the sand bar with families/friends playing volleyball or Frisbee, enjoying snacks & beverages, or just hanging off swim platforms chatting with ‘neighbors' in the water...long and lazy days with sunsets second to none. Our prices rival coastal properties in our country, but without the extreme appreciations/depreciations, just a nice steady solid annual appreciation. For years we enjoyed an appreciation of 14-16% annual appreciation average for channel front homes, and around 7% for lakefront. I have sold over $50 million in real estate in the last four years. I am a full time Real Estate Broker, I believe I have very strong negotiating skills; critically necessary, especially in this market, to obtain the best scenario for you in your search for the ‘best deal'. We have seen some decline in appreciation in 2008; I my opinion primarily due to overall national economic conditions and exorbitant amounts of negative media as they spin all the pessimistic news on our national economy they can possibly spit out. This creates hesitation and reserve even in areas that are still healthy. Real estate is very specific to local demographics. Our county is home to some very very healthy global industry, and secondly the resort/recreational lakes real estate market.
Whether you are looking for a humble abode or a mansion, a big yard or maintenance-free condo living, a first time homebuyer or an experienced investor, I can help you find that place 'just right' for you!
