This area boasts prosperous lake real estate markets, with Lake Michigan offering more than $1 billion in property for sale.

“As a brokerage, we are able to better serve our lake real estate buyers, sellers and our own agents with each state we add to our service area,” said Lake Homes Realty CEO Glenn S. Phillips.

“As we look forward into 2018, I’m proud of our team’s efforts to grow this company and the success we’ve seen this year. The new year is sure to be just as exciting as we work toward opening operations in several more states.”

Lake Homes Realty already has licensed agents in Michigan and is currently in discussions with prospective agents across the state.

“We are looking for agents who understand the power of the platform and who are dedicated to providing top-level customer service to our clients,” Phillips said.

“The power of people combined with the power of the web is critical for success as a real estate brokerage.”

The company also shared that growth in existing markets is continuing across the southeast and southwest U.S.

About Lake Homes Realty

Lake Homes Realty is one of the nation’s fastest growing real estate companies and is a full-service, lake-focused real estate brokerage currently operating in 17 states. The company’s unique operations model is built around the concept of a one-stop website for lake homes and land, while coupling this with the brokerage’s own licensed local market expert real estate agents.

Lake Homes Realty was named #927 on the 2017 Inc 5,000 and has been recently featured by Realtor® Magazine.

The company has also been named by the Birmingham Business Journal as one of the 30 fastest growing businesses in Birmingham each of the past three years.
