"We recently completed our fourth transaction with Rick and his team. Over the years we purchased and sold condominiums at Landmark on the Lake and most recently purchased a new home in Fox Point. Throughout the process we found Rick and the team to be knowledgeable and trustworthy."
- Eben Slaunwhite, Eastside Milwaukee
Welcome to Eastside
Just north of downtown Milwaukee, the bluffs of stunning Lake Michigan to the west, and the winding Milwaukee River to the east, real estate in this vibrant neighborhood is highly coveted. Eastside Milwaukee features elegant homes in both classic and contemporary styles, numerous green spaces and well-known parks, a variety of dining establishments and entertainment venues, fashionable boutiques, and proximity to major health and educational facilities. Milwaukee’s only Whole Foods Market is also located in this trendy community.
This dynamic region has always had a reputation of being a cultural nucleus. From the late 1800s to 1920s, the city’s affluent population built historical mansions that have been beautifully preserved on shores of Lake Michigan. While newer built condos, lofts, single family homes, and high rise apartment complexes are also located on tree-lined streets making this neighborhood a wonderful melting pot of residents.
Highly walkable, you will find a plethora of social, cultural, and recreational activities as soon as you step out your front door. Investing in eastside Milwaukee’s real estate is a wise venture for every buyer, regardless of what phase of life they are in.
