Many people want to live on a all sports lake in Oakland County Michigan. If you do not know the difference between an all sports lake and a non all sports lake let me give you an explanation. An Oakland County all sports lake basically means that jet skis, power boats, sail boats, pontoon, and ski boats are allowed on the lake. Non all sports lakes are basically non gas motor lakes. Some non all sports lakes limit the size of electric motors or do not allow motors at all. So no jet skis, no power boats, and even little fishing boats with a gas motor are not allowed. Oakland County does have many non all sports lakes to chose from.
Some of the all sports lakes in Oakland County MI are public and some are private. I myself do not believe it makes much of a difference whether it is a private lake or public. Most local lakes are busy on the weekend and quite during the weekdays. Everybody loves to enjoy our Michigan weekends.
One mistake many Michigan lake home buyers make is that an all sports lake means big. That is not true at all. There are many small lakes 30-40 acres that are all sports lakes. They allow jet skis and motor boats on them, but they are really not for the avid water sports enthusiast. They are ok for the occasional water skier or tubing with the kids. But to spend a lot of time tubing, or wakeboarding you are going to want a bigger lake. Otherwise you are going to be going around the small all sports lake in a small circle. That would get boring after a while.

Russ was kind and helpful. We had not bought a house in over 40 years so we had no idea what was in store for us.
After reading the testimonials on Russ's website, we gave him a call. We'd had a bad experience with a previous realtor, so we were cautious. But it turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made.
He answered all our questions and even worked around our schedules to show us houses. As busy as Russ can be, he always returned our calls.
Even when we decided to put the search on hold for almost a year, Russ waited patiently for us to be ready. He told us that when we were ready again, he'd be ready to help.
Bottom line, Russ is a very good realtor who goes above and beyond what you expect. Thank you Russ for everything! We and our dogs love our new home!
