Renee Amey Team helps homeowners

enjoy lake life all year around at Raintree Lake

Balancing a home and job in the city with weekends at the lake can be rewarding but also hectic. Homeowners at Raintree Lake and other lake communities in Lee’s Summit find that enjoying life on the water is as simple as stepping out their back door.

“Raintree Lake is a fabulous community, offering all the lake activity that lake enthusiasts might want,” says Renee Amey, who leads the Renee Amey Team at RE/MAX Elite in Lee’s Summit. “For those who desire a little more adventure and activity, you will love options of skiing, wakeboarding, sailing or swimming at the community pool or lake. Should a little slower pace be desired, pontoons and fishing boats provide the perfect getaway. 

“No matter your option of activity, there is nothing like the breath of fresh air you experience as you return home and take in the lake and your environment. It’s that feeling you get on vacation when you get to your destination and just truly relax.”

The Lee’s Summit native has helped countless residents find their dream homes since she first entered the real estate business in 2003. Her expertise has earned her recognition as a five-star agent for being one of the top 5 percent of real estate agents in the Kansas City area.

Amey’s passion is finding the perfect home for every client.

“Every property has something unique about it that makes it a perfect fit for someone else, and it’s our job to bring those two parties together,” she says. “I will not give up on any home or any client. My persistence to get the job done is one of my top assets to my clients.”

Raintree Lake is one of the hottest communities in eastern Jackson County, and no one knows it like the Renee Amey team.

“My team has had the pleasure of selling lake properties at Raintree Lake the past 16 years, and it does continue to be our top-selling lake community,” she says. “There is something for everybody here and a great variety of homes. We enjoy being an information source about the community, the activities and amenities, as well as helping clients find the right home for them. We truly feel we are not just selling a home but are selling a lifestyle.”

New Raintree residents are immediately welcomed as part of a community, with year-round activities such golfing at the nearby Shamrock Golf Course. Several businesses serve Raintree residents, including the new Wally’s Grill & Drafthouse, which features happy hours and wine tastings.

Missouri is the Show-Me state, of course, and the best way to get a feel for lake life is to experience it firsthand. The Renee Amey Team invites everyone to enjoy snacks and beverages and see what the lake has to offer from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on April 4 at 4541 Gulf Point in Lee’s Summit.

“If you want your kids’ home to be the place to go, then you found it at Raintree Lake,” Amey says. “There is nothing like having friends and family here to enjoy all the activities outside. It’s such a healthy environment that is a great escape from all the demands on our time.”
