For nearly 15 years, Russ Ravary and his team have been focused on the sale of waterfront property on our area's lakes. Licensed in Michigan, I cover all counties in Metro Detroit.
Which lake do you like best? What about lake Sherwood in Milford? One of the questions I hear is that public lakes are busier than private lakes. Basically that is true. First I have to tell you that all metro Detroit lakes are busy on holiday weekends. Many of them are busy on the weekend too. Usually during the week the lakes in Oakland County or Livingston County are quiet. Sometimes there is nobody even on the lake during the week. So if you have a lakefront home in the metro Detroit area you will most likely have a quiet lake during the week.
Some dreams are meant to come true. Let’s try to make your dream of living on a lake real. Are you with me? Take the steps to make your dream come true. The lake lifestyle is amazing and once have a home on a lake you will be saying why didn’t you do this years before. It is something about the tranquility of water that makes it so special. You will have magical days of watching lake sunsets and watching the wildlife on the lake. Days of enjoyment on the lake with family and friends. It is special to see the mist rise off the lake on the cool fall days.
There are so many special times to come in your life when you live on a lake. You will hate to leave it when it is a bright sunny day. You will find you will miss some events on purpose because you would rather be at home on the lake.
There are so many wonderful Oakland County lakes to choose from. And if you cannot find an Oakland County lake to fit you then there is Livingston County, Washtenaw County, and Genessee County were there are many other alternatives. So many different lakes within an hours of Detroit. There are Oakland County lakefront homes of every size, shape, and age. It boils down to what you want in a home and what you are going to do on the lake Search Livingston and Oakland County waterfront homes by map. Zoom in on the lake or area to find your next lake house.

Lake Sherwood History
The lake was man made during the 1950's. James Cole and Lewis Easlick were 2 men that brought Lake Sherwood from a dream into reality. At one point they had a dream of connecting all the lakes they had made together. The other lakes they dug and developed are Cedar Island Lake, Neva Lake, and Brendal Lake. Lot prices in 1960 were $8,900 but they were not selling. They raised the price to $10,150 and then the lots started selling. Lake Sherwood hosted the State salom championship in 1958 - 59.
The dam is 1600 ft long and the lake outlet flows into the Huron River via Ann Arbor into Lake Erie. During the fall they lower the level of the lake.

Here is what a previous client said about me!
It´s been 2 months since we moved into our new Canton condo and we
are very happy with it. In the beginning we didn´t even
know what we needed but with your help, guidance and
patience we chose the best condo in the area with the best
price according to our needs. We were looking all over. We looked in Novi, Warrren, Canton, Farmington Hills. But we finally found our Canton condo. We appreciate everything you
have done for us. We would recommend you without hesitation
to everyone we know who wants to buy or sell a house. "
