Russ Ravary your Lakes area specialist


When you are buying or selling a home in southeastern Michigan you may wonder if you are getting a good realtor.  I work all of Metro Detroit, but I am a lakes area specialist.  I know Oakland County lakes well.  The homes, the lake sizes, where the water source is, whether the lake is public or private.  I have been working the lakes area for years and I made a point of putting together two websites that give in depth information about Oakland County Lakes & lake homes  and  Lake houses & Lake property listings in Oakland County

Sometimes the best lake homes sell in less than a week.  Click the button below to get the newest lake listings so you do not miss out on the great deals.

I always us Angie’s list for a lot of my contractors and I have testimonials from clients that are angies’ list member.  But Zillow and Trulia has many of my clients referrals on them too.

Here are a few of my latest testimonials

We had known Russ Ravary for several years before we had him list our home. When my husband accepted a position out of state we wanted to sell our home quickly and for full market value. We called Russ and he agreed to list our home. Russ walked through our home and was very detailed on useful insights for pre-listing renovations/staging and effective showings. We followed all of his advice. Our home received two full-priced offers simultaneously within two weeks of the listing. Each offer had different contingencies and Russ walked us through each offer to explain the best offer for us. Russ was a proactive facilitator during the sale negotiations/due diligence. Russ went above and beyond the duties of a realtor: he stopped by to calm emotions and help find required paperwork; he was in contact with our title agencies for the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home and saw all tasks to perfect completion. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace. Russ has that perfect balance of knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done.

I am the fourth person in my family to use Russ. My sister bought a house through Russ, my grandmother sold her house with Russ, my mom and dad sold their house in Livonia and bought their new lake house in Brighton through Russ. His expertise has helped my family find solid homes that are not money pits. Homes that are going to appreciate in years to come. I love my new home and it is a perfect fit for me and my dog. I am sure my family will be using him again when we move and your family will be in good hands when you use Russ.


We were relocating from Iowa and we contacted Russ several years ago to help us find a home. He provided the information we needed to help make the decision on where to live. Russ took us all around the metro Detroit area before we decided to buy a home in Canton. Now we are headed back to Iowa and Russ helped us sell our home in under a week. His experience helped us pick a home that increased in value so we could sell without being underwater. He made buying and selling a breeze! He was a positive experience in our Michigan life. We would recommend Russ to any relocation buyer or anybody that needs to sell their home.
