"Katie helped us identify, negotiate the purchase a property in Lake Country. The team was attentive and made the process painless."

Welcome to Lake Country
The northwestern corner of Waukesha County, referred to as Lake Country by its residents, is home to magnificent landscapes and a multitude of pristine lakes carved by glaciars thousands of years ago.
A short 30-45 minute commute from Milwaukee, Lake Country offers tranquil, natural surroundings to escape the bustle of the city. It is an idyllic place to raise your children with schools offering intimate learning environments and known for their academic excellence as well as numerous family recreational opportunities. These include golfing, fishing, camping, horseback riding, biking, hiking, rock climbing, and a plethora of water-based activities. Lake Country also offers thousands of acres of park area and miles of walking and jogging trails which are converted into cross-county ski trails in the winter including the portions of the 1,200 mile Ice Age Trail.
Your New Neighbors
With a population of approximately 70,000 over a multitude of lakefront properties, your new neighbors will be mostly families, many of them inter-generational.
What You Will Love
In the summer, you will love living on the lake with all your water toys: boats, jet skis, stand-up paddleboarding, sailing, waterskiing, etc. while winter activities include skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledding, and iceskating.
With 30 miles of hiking trails, the Kettle Moraine Forest has one for you, whether you are a newbit or seasoned hiker.
