Williams Lake homes and real estate Oakland County MI

Is the water calming to you?  If you are like me there is something magical about water!  I don’t know if it reminds me of great vacations, or good times with family from years gone by.  There is just something about water that I love.  Nothing like seeing the sun shine on the water.  If you have feelings like I do I would say you are a water person.   You dream of living on a lake is very possible and attainable.   Southeastern Michigan lakes still have many affordable homes that have reasonable drives into Metro Detroit. Yes lake homes are more expensive than a normal house.  However the lake lifestyle is worth it.  It is an amazing lifestyle.  Would you like to come home at the end of a crazy, hard day to get on the pontoon and have a relaxing ride with your partner with a cold drink in your hand?  That is so possible.  Read about our local lakes.   Here is some great info on waterfront homes on Williams  lake in Waterford twp. Michigan.  Search Oakland County lake homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your next lake home.

Williams Lake real estate is like many of Waterford's Lakes. It varies greatly from small to large on lots that range from 47' wide to about a 100' wide. Most of them though are between 40 and 70 foot wide.

There are 800 square foot ranches and bungalows that were built in the 1920's. There is even what I would call a doll house a 660 square foot ranch on Williams Lake. But on the other extreme there is a 3300 and 5300 square foot ranch home.

Of course there are quite a few colonials in the 2000 square foot range. So if you aren't pretentious and don't have to live on a upper end lake where the homes are all large and newer then you might want to check out William Lake properties.

        Here is what one of my previous clients had to say about working with me!
"It was so good to meet a nice and honest Realtor.  It was like he was part of the family.  I was recovering from an illness and we needed to move to a home that was all on one floor.  We had already found a renter for our home so we had to put together the deal quickly.  Russ took care of it all and made whatever trips to our home that were necessary to get everything done.  I had no worries at all.  All I had to do was make it to the closing to sign my name.  We were out of our old house and into the new  in plenty of time so the new renter could move in.  

We even lost our closing package  during the move and he was nice enough to make a new one and drop it buy.  Though I tell him I gained five pounds on the cake that he brought to us.   I would recommend him to anybody that needs a Realtor or mortgage person."
