Runyan Lake TyroneTwp    Livingston County MI

    Runyan Lakefront properties 

Public or private may be one of the questions you are asking yourself when considering whether to buy on       lake in          .  I would have to agree that public lakes are busier.  One of the alternatives is if you like a home on a public lake is buy a home on a bay or canal of the lake.  Stay away from the lake property on the point or in the major traffic pattern.  Being on a small bay or in a corner of the lake will probably have you out of the major water sports traffic pattern.  Some of the fun on the lake is seeing the good wakeboarders and skiers go by.

Welcome to Southeastern Michigan’s premier resource for all lake and real estate information and services in the area. I hope you enjoy your visit and explore everything my realty website has to offer, including links to the latest waterfront property searches.

 Runyan Lake Tyrone Twp

There are so many great benefits of living on a lake.  One benefit is all the sights and sounds of nature that you will get to enjoy when you have Southeastern Michigan lake home.  Imagine yourself in front of the fireplace when the snow is falling on the lake, or in the fall with all the beautiful fall colors.  Or maybe enjoying the sun bouncing off the waves while sitting on your deck with family and friends.  So much to take in when on the lake.

If you have previously registered with us, you may have noticed that we have a new, improved website with an updated version of our MLS Search tool and more information on Oakland County lakes and lake homes.   Looking for a new lake home?

None of us know when it will be the last day on this earth.  We all make plans of doing something, but many times it never gets done because we are too busy.  Life flies by.  I am sure you have many examples of what you wish you had done from years past.  We all have those little regrets.  Life is so short.  I myself can speak from experience.  I lost my lovely wife Marianne after a 22 year battle with cancer.  She was a great lady and I felt we lived life to the fullest.  But I still have a few regrets that we didn't do a few things.

Waterfront homes on Runyan Lake Tyrone MI

One thing I have never heard an old person say is "that they wished they worked more".  Most people have regrets about what they did not do.  Regrets about little things or choices that they should have made.  Life is short.  I believe we should live life to the fullest.  After my wife died I made the decision that I would live life a little more.  I loved the water.  I decided that I wanted a boat again.  I had always loved the water.  I now live on a lake in White Lake.   I am living life.

The question is are you?  What are your dreams?  What do you really want to do?  Do you want to live on a lake?  Do you want to wake up to the sun rising on the water?  Do you want to see the mist rising off the lake in the early fall?  Do you want your kids to grow up on the lake?  Do you want family gatherings on the lake?

If you want to live on a lake then now may be the time to do it.   If you want to explore the options of lake living give me a call or email me.  My email is and my cell phone is (248) 310-6239.  Life is if you really want to live on a lake give me a call!
