Welcome Home

Mike Avis entered the real estate and construction industry immediately upon graduation from Vanderbilt University in 1987. His instant passion for building and selling homes captured his attention, and detoured his plans for business school.  He has developed, built, and rehabbed more than 200 homes along the North Shore.  

“I have had the best of both worlds.  I could build homes during the week, and on the weekends, I did my own sales.”  To this day, Mike insists on being hands-on from the initial “consultation” to the “sale” to the “closing” and well beyond.  There is a special connection and bond that develops when working closely with Mike and his clients use his services repeatedly.

Mike brings to KoenigRubloff over 27 years of success as a homebuilder, developer and real estate broker.  Yet, Mike believes the most important thing he has ever built is his reputation.  His belief in seeding long term relationships through integrity, knowledge, experience and devotion are absolutely paramount to his real estate profession.

“I will take extraordinary time and patience to understand your needs, wishes, ideas and your thoughts.  Right up front, you will receive candid analysis and suggestions that will always have your best interests at heart.  My philosophy when it concerns my clientele is simple.   My pledge for hard work and open communication are the principles on which I base my business."

Mike grew up in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.  In his spare time, Mike likes to ride his mountain bike and powerboat on Lake Michigan in his vintage 1972 Cigarette.

Areas of expertise range along the North Shore: Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Lincolnshire, Libertyville, Highland Park, Deerfield, Green Oaks, Vernon Hills, Mettawa, Gurnee, Wadsworth, Riverwoods.  Out of area buyer representation is also welcomed!

When considering a Realtor for your next home purchase or sale, look to the agent that can give you the attention you deserve. Please contact Mike via phone or email, and he will respond promptly to your inquiry.
