Are you looking for a Clarkston lake home?  Clarkston Lakes are near to the I-75 corridor and make an easy ride to work whether you are going to downtown Detroit or to Auburn Hills or Troy.  What you have to understand is that many people consider Independence Township Lakes and Springfield Township Lakes are sometimes spoken as "Clarkston".  They may not be in Clarkston proper but their mailing address may be Clarkston or people may just refer to the area as Clarkston.

Clarkston Lakes

Here are 19 of the lakes that are in and around Clarkston MI.  Below I have labeled whether the lakes are a public lake or a private lake.  If they are a public lake it means there is a DNR Launch or launch that the public can use.  There are a couple of County and community parks run by the townships on a couple of the lakes.  I also labeled the lakes on whether they are an all sports lake or not.

When buying a lakefront home in Clarkston Michigan you will find you have a wide range of choices of homes.  You will still find small older cottages on many of Clarkston's Lakes.  You will also find big colonial, ranch, and contemporary homes that have been built in the last ten years.  So there are Clarkston Lake homes that will have all the latest amenities like master suites with walk in closets, great rooms, and gourmet style kitchens.  The newer homes will have open layouts, large lake view windows, and rooms that face the lake.

The older homes change hands over the years and many of them are remodeled, updated, and added onto over the years.  Many lakes are always in a state of change because of the additions.  Sometimes old lake homes are torn down and new lake homes built.

If you are looking to buy or sell a Clarkston lake home give me a call.  I get lots of buyers from this lake website looking to buy a lake home so if you are selling that helps you.  I also know how to market your lake home because I deal with lake home buyers all the time and I live on a lake.  I understand the lake lifestyle and it helps to sell homes.

If you are a lake home buyer I know hundreds of local lakes that you may not know of.  I can save you time and energy by ruling out lakes that do not fit you and your family and point out other lakes that may fit you.  So call me today at 248-310-6239 to get started on your next move.


Here are a few of my past client's reviews.

The service provided to us by our realtor Russ Ravary was simply outstanding.  Not only did Russ help us find our dream home for a great price, but he also sold our house for top dollar in less than three days!  The professionalism, flexibility, & overall quality of service provided by Russ far exceeded every expectation we had.  If you want a realtor that truly cares about the customer, operates with integrity, & will work diligently to ensure all of your needs are meant then we strongly recommend you contact Russ.  After closing he even gave us a kayak to use on our new lake!  Thank you for making our dream come true!

Found the perfect home in Highland but needed to sell our house in Livonia to get it.. Russ came through with both the purchasing of my new house and the selling of my Livonia house!!! His knowledge of both areas was a tremendous advantage in our transactions!!  Time to enjoy lake living now!!!

Russ is a true professional with the experience and expertise needed to sell my home. Would work with him anytime I needed to buy or sell a home. His insight is how to present the home for sale proved to be spot on.
