Lakes & Country was founded in 1985 by Carol Page. She focused on selling local lakefront property, land, and serviced the under served “country” areas. She opened the flagship office in Bloomingdale, MI, which is still in operation today at 110 E Spring Street.

In 2014, Janis Havice purchased the company, rebranded, and the company has grown significantly. We still continue to serve the same areas and also expanded our territory. The Paw Paw office at 200 S Kalamazoo was opened in 2016, and is now the main office with agents ready to serve you.

Our approach is different than other real estate agencies. Our agents are truly partners with their clients in the home buying and selling process. We are not just selling homes, we are guiding our clients the process and navigating the pitfalls that may arise. We value our relationships with our clients and hope to continue working with them for life!

We service all of Southwest Michigan. Our area of expertise is within 3 hours of Chicago and is a popular area for out of state buyers looking for vacation homes.
