Moving to Highland Michigan!

Moving to Highland Michigan!







Are you thinking of relocating to Highland Michigan?  Let’s talk more about the city, so you know exactly what you could be moving into!

Highland Township has so much to offer home buyers looking for lake property, homes with a little land, or homes near Milford.  Highland Township was established on March 17, 1835.  So the community has been around for a while.   It was named, because of its elevated position, containing some of the highest land in the then-settled part of the state. Like so many of the early settlements, it had a general store, a black smith shop, a grist mill, and a grain warehouse.  This historic area formerly included a depot, post office, grain elevator, pickle works, and wind-powered planing mill, in addition to the Victorian-era churches, homes and businesses which survive to this day. As of 2016 the population of Highland was 19,810, and counting! This is an area people are quite fond of with all the community event happening year round and the easy commutes to and from multiple cities, living here is truly fulfilling.

If you are looking for a community that is subdivision after subdivision, or a community that is full of similar homes, or a community of pristine homes  I would say Highland is not that type of community.  You will find homes with space, little horse farms, lake homes, and smaller homes off the lakes, historic older homes, new homes in subs, and little small subs from the 1950’s to 1980’s.  This is a community made up of a mix of old and new, small and large, and homes of various condition.  A little community just north of Milford that is worth checking out if you are moving to Oakland County and southeastern Michigan.










Not only will you find a diverse range of architectural styles of homes but also a diverse group of lakes. There are more than 25 lakes in Highland Township in Oakland County MI. Here are some of the lakes you will find in highland Twp, ranging in size, privacy, sport style, and more!

Where ever in highland you choose to buy your children will more than likely end up in the Huron Valley Schools district.  It is a good school system with teachers that strive to make sure the children are prepared for college.  The community also has continuing education classes too.  Highland Township is what I would call on the outskirts of Metro Detroit.  It would be a long drive to get to the airport or downtown Detroit if you had to do it often.  If you are considering relocating to Highland then you may be working in Brighton, Pontiac, or in the northwestern part of Metro Detroit. All Manageable commutes, but could be potentially longer than what some may be used to.

Here is a video of a popular lake in Highland Twp.












“Russ was kind and helpful. We had not bought a house in over 40 years so we had no idea what was in store for us.

After reading the testimonials on Russ’s website, we gave him a call.  We’d had a bad experience with a previous realtor, so we were cautious.  But it turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made.

He answered all our questions and even worked around our schedules to show us houses.  As busy as Russ can be, he always returned our calls.

Even when we decided to put the search on hold for almost a year, Russ waited patiently for us to be ready. He told us that when we were ready again, he’d be ready to help.

Bottom line, Russ is a very good realtor who goes above and beyond what you expect. Thank you Russ for everything! We and our dogs love our new home!”
