What do I know about Chippewa Lake? I actually grew up in Chippewa Lake! We lived in a house right at the peak of Heather Hedge, Lake St & First Street until I was in the 1st grade (this home is no longer there).

We then moved to the house at 10 Parkway Drive (also no longer there). I LOVED THAT HOUSE! My fondest childhood memories were made in that house. We lived there until I was in the 6th grade. My parents then bought a home in Lafayette Township on Lafayette Rd where they lived another 22 years.

I learned to ride my bike on First Street. I learned to swim in Chippewa Lake. I remember swimming out to the dock and under the dock… playing in the sand at the beach.

My mom and I would walk down to the docks and fish and she wouldn't catch a thing. I'd toss my line in and catch a fish right away (sorry mom).

I remember riding the bus to the Chippewa Lake Baptist Church all by myself as a child.

I remember that you could hear the ice cream truck for EVER. I would have my money ready when I first heard the music from the ice cream truck and I'd wait and wait and wait for them. I think the music from the ice cream truck could be heard from Briarwood Beach all the way to the tennis courts on the circle.

When I would get my allowance I would ride my bike up to Don & Jean's and buy candy and little trinkets for my mom in their "gift shop".

I remember Don Casper from the Oaks, Ellie from the Village, Billy Leohr from Leohr's Automotive and Bill from the Sunoco station.

My parents were members of the Chippewa Lake CB Radio Club and as a child, I knew the CB handles to every member.

I've maybe missed three 4th of July Parades in my life.

Most people who grew up in Chippewa Lake have memories of the Amusement Park. I was very young when it closed. I have faint memories of the park but I do have memories there.

When I got my real estate license, I knew I wanted to promote Chippewa Lake. I am so passionate about the Village of Chippewa Lake and my goal as an agent is to help the owners there increase their property values. I have helped educate appraisers on the value in the community. On all my listings I promote the activities and events in the community.

Years ago I connected with Donna at the Medina County Parks District and developed a relationship with them so I could better educate buyers and sellers on how lake rights work.

I am on a first name basis with the Chippewa Lake Zoning Inspector. We communicate on listings I have and listings I have coming on the market. If he can't reach my sellers on a concern, he calls me to communicate with them.

In the summer of 2019, my husband and I bought a home on Bungalow Bay Blvd. As I type this blog I have closed on over 45 properties in Chippewa Lake.

If you are considering buying or selling a home in Chippewa Lake, call me today. I'd love to work with you.
