 Let me serve you as your personal real estate agent here in the Southeastern Michigan area.  Our motto “The Right Agent Makes All the Difference!” Customer satisfaction is our number one goal.

 Let’s talk about Darb Lake in West Bloomfield Michigan.  Most of our local lakes in Michigan are clean.  It is rare that any lake is shut down for swimming because of high bacteria levels.  Usually you hear of a Metro Beach being shut down, but is usually after a rain when a city releases sewage into a river.  We don’t have sewage plants on our lakes in Oakland County.   

 Welcome to one of Oakland County’s top lakefront realtors Russ Ravary’s website.  Last year we helped lake buyers and sellers sell over 17 million dollars of homes.  My goal is to aid you in finding the right waterfront home and the right Oakland County Lake that fits you and your family’s water activities. What is great about lake living is the scenery.  Here are just a few of the beautiful sights you are going to see:

 1.)     Full Moon over the lake

 2.)    New Born Ducks scrambling into the water

 3.)    Snow falling on the lake


Save thousands and thousands of dollars when selling your home.  I have some of the lowest home selling commissions.  Why pay full commission to a real estate agent and give away your hard earned money.  Are you willing  to over pay for selling your home?  Give me a text or call today 248-310-6239 to see how much your home is worth and how much you can keep in your pocket. 

Lakefront properties vary widely from lake to lake and even from one side of the lake.  Having a good lake realtor can save you valuable time, but also will be able to help you save money.  It doesn’t matter whether are selling your waterfront home or looking to fulfill your dream of living on the lake we can help you.

Darb Lakefront homes are different as night and day from one side of the lake to the other.  On one side of the lake the real estate is older smaller homes.   The typical small lake cottages that have been updated over the years.

Whereas the homes in Mission Spring at Darb Lake subdivision were built between 1988 -1995.  The homes ranged in size from 2700 square feet to 3300 square feet.  They are brick homes with walkout basements.  They have 3+ bedrooms, 2 1/2+ bathrooms, and 2 car garages.  They are colonials that are found in the new subdivisions of West Bloomfield. 

It is like night and day on the two different sides of Darb Lake. Children that live on the lake attend West Bloomfield Schools.

So what is the lake life style?  Over all the lake life style is a little different than subdivision.  Most lake home owners know their neighbors or other people on the lake from seeing them out on the lake.  I would say the lake life style is more social.  Though there are many lake home owners that keep to themselves.  So lake home owners may not even own a boat.  To me that is on a lake and not own a boat????

There are always people like that on a lake.  Some have gotten older and no longer want to maintain a boat, some are just happy looking at the lake and the birds, ducks, swans on the lake.  I have had many clients that do not have boats and are so happy on the lake.  They are just more relaxed because of the lake.

Most lakes will have a gathering spot.  What I mean by that is a place where boats and people tend to hang out together.  They may not know each other too well, but they may talk a little when anchored close by.  If it is a mucky lake they may anchor in a deep spot to swim.  If there are islands on the lake they may park on the shallow end of the island.  Some lakes has shallow areas or sunken islands that lake home owners anchor at.  Some stay to themselves with their family and kids.  Other lake home owners mingle and chat with the other people on the boats.

Here  is what a previous client had to say about me!




"I first started looking at real estate listings online nearly a year ago, but at first I thought I´d never really buy one. I hadn´t been paying attention and thought I still couldn´t afford to buy a place. I also had no experience in buying a home and I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I bought. For most questions I would search online, the topic had been discussed on Russ´ blog.  Not only that, he was local. Over the summer, I finally decided to start physically looking at houses and Russ was the only choice.


My preferred method of contact was email and he always responded in a timely fashion. He was patient with this first-time home buyer, and worked with me through my initial bid process. I was surprised when they accepted the bid! The transaction went smoothly, with Russ patiently answering any questions and concerns I had. From the first time we looked at houses to the closing was exactly one month. I´ve been here five months now and people still marvel at what I got for the price I paid. When I requested a plumber, he was able to provide one was lived close by and was economical."


Thanks for everything, Russ.
