Watch the sun rise as you gaze upon miles of water and sip your morning cup of coffee from your own, private deck-this dream is reality at Lake Sam Rayburn. As the local authorities on this majestic body of water, Buchanan Realty is thrilled to be your premiere liaison to the largest lake entirely within Texas. As the only Realtors who cover all of the areas surrounding the lake--5 counties, no one knows Lake Sam Rayburn better. Buchanan Realty's lake office is centrally located in the mid-lake area in Zavalla. Belonging to the Lufkin MLS, Jasper MLS, Houston MLS, Texas Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors, Buchanan Realty is able to represent you no matter what type of property you desire. Properties here range from luxurious waterfront homes to lake area camps. You'll also find beautiful properties with lots of acreage surrounded by pines trees and rolling hills, all close enough to the lake to make fishing a daily part of your life. These properties also make great investments for those wanting to rent their homes to eager vacationers who flock to the lake year round, as well as the fishermen who participate in the more than 300 tournaments that take place on Rayburn each year. The lake market covers so much area and many of the neighborhoods are so remote that it can be a struggle for buyers to locate these lakeside gems. Many of these properties do not even show up on GPS. Buchanan Realty's lake office is staffed with realtors who specialize in these areas, and can help you find these hidden treasures. Call Buchanan Realty at 936-897-1099 today so you can start enjoying your slice of this peaceful, affordable paradise!
