About Michael Lescher
Serving satisfied clients for 30+ years in the Fox Lake area, I’m a RE/MAX Hall of Fame realtor who knows the Chain O’ Lakes region well and shares my expertise after learning your home buying or selling needs.
I help you from start to finish. From lakefront to commercial deals – short sales or investment properties, it’s my job as your realtor to:
- Bring you market information and interpret it.
- Listen to your goals and time frame.
- Market your property and give you feedback.
- Negotiate for you.
- Follow through until closing the deal.
I’ll provide you personal attention, eagerly out-working other agents. I meet with you in person and communicate regularly about the analytics of similar nearby homes and action on your property.
I guide you, but you ultimately make the final decisions – because after all – it’s your house.
Professional awards and responsibilities include:
- Illinois Association of Realtors Diamond Club lifetime member ($10 million in sales annually)
- Served 8 years on the Lake County Association of Realtors Board of Directors, once as president

I’ve lived in suburban Chicago all my life, choosing to settle in Fox Lake to raise my family in 1986 because I loved the area and lifestyle. I work from my home office in Fox Lake.
With deep roots in my community, I’ve been an active leader over the years in the following ways:
- Director and Vice President of the Fox Lake Chamber of Commerce
- President of the Fox Lake Elementary School Board
- President of the Fox Lake Economic Development Corporation
- Lake County Affordable Housing and Fair Housing Task Force member
- Fox Waterway Agency Flood Task Force appointee
- Fox Lake Planning Commission member
- Lake County Tax Board of Review alternate member
My wife Maxime and I have been married since 1976. We have 2 children, Xander and Geneva. I enjoy playing piano and singing professionally, appearing at local clubs and charity functions and spend my leisure time boating on the Chain O’ Lakes.
