"Blake made our new home purchase in a city we were unfamiliar with a breeze! He was thoughtful in scheduling homes to see during the limited time that we had, and he successfully helped us find a home that met all of our criteria! Blake was very responsive in getting back to us when we reached  out, and patient with us while we made our big decisions. I would recommend Blake Bernard to anyone buying or selling a home!"

We have known Blake Bernard for years through work, life, and friendship. With our family growing, my wife and I knew we needed a new home that would fit our family's needs for the future.

We reached out to Blake for some guidance at first, just thinking he could assist with suggestions and advice.  I knew Blake was good, but the outpour of attention and drive he had right off the bat was exciting, let alone his willingness to travel to meet for walk through, home inspection, closing etc. It turned from asking a friend for some advice over the phone to the best phone call I ever made in searching for a new home. Blake immediately in 5 minutes was sending comp info, and walking me through the offer process.

From attention to detail, to attention to our needs, Blake went above and beyond in every step of the buying process. His knowledge and guidance made the search, purchase, and the closing on our new home as simple as possible. My wife and I could not be happier with what Blake brought to the table for our family. Thank you Blake for all that you did, and for helping our family find our home.

"We had a great experience working with Blake in purchasing our condominium in Sutton’s Bay. 

From our initial call “just to ask some questions” through him handing over the keys, Blake demonstrated a high level of communication, service and professionalism.  In fact, on a number of occasions, Blake went above and beyond the call of duty for us as we worked through the process several hours from the property. 

In the end, we honestly couldn’t have asked for a better person to partner with us!"

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Blake for over 25 years, as we attended primary school together. Since then, we’ve worked together on several projects, both business and personal, and they’ve always been an enjoyable experience. 

For as long as I can remember, Blake has been a “people person,” possessing an endearing, kind-hearted, positive character that attracts others to him and allows him to build relationships instantly. Blake seems to know everyone and he has a way of making each person feel like an old friend. 

His charisma and approachability are innate and omnipresent, but have also been cultivated over the years with his educational and business experiences. Blake is ambitious and has excelled at numerous ventures, from collegiate sports and coaching, to managing his family’s international textile business. These involvements have instilled Blake with leadership skills and the ability to collaborate and communicate well with others. 

Whatever Blake has wanted to do, he has not only been proficient, but exceptional at it, and I have no doubt that Blake will make an outstanding realtor."

"We recently purchased our new home through Blake Bernard and Homewaters Recreational Real Estate. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Blake and the Homewaters team.

Blake is VERY responsive on the telephone/e-mail…..and believe me, I called him ALOT!  He always has a smile on his face and went out of his way to make our dream a reality!  

I met Chad and his lovely wife Mandy in the Homewaters office and was also impressed to hear about how Homewaters is different from other real estate brokers, and that message comes through loud and clear with their staff. Everyone we have met and worked with at Homewaters has been wonderful! They are all super professional and I truly believe they love what they do!  Blake is a great guy and a great real estate agent!

We liked them so much, we even listed our old house with Homewaters too! Great Job Team Homewaters!"

"Blake has helped us now on a number of real estate transactions, some of which were quite complex with a number of moving parts, such as easement issues, difficult tenants, etc. Blake is very dependable, resourceful and knowledgeable and has helped us successfully navigate various issues to close on our real estate transactions. I would definitely recommend Blake to anyone that is looking to buy or sell real estate in our area."
