  • 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:

    1. Bring you market information and interpret it.
    2. Listen to your goals and time frame.
    3. Market your property and give you feedback.
    4. Negotiate for you.
    5. 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.
