"The Falk Ruvin Team did a wonderful job generating demand for our home. We had an offer right away, and their team stayed highly involved through closing."

Welcome to Shorewood
Shorewood is a diverse and vibrant pedestrian and bike-friendly village along the shores of Lake Michigan, the first suburb north of Milwaukee. Incorporated in 1900, the name of the Village was changed to Shorewood in 1917.
Shorewood real estate is essentially a 1.5 square mile village. Here you will find tree-lined residential streets in a safe, semi-urban, and active community which is close to everything: the lake, a major university, open green spaces, and its own mini-downtown with eclectic shopping opportunities. In addition, downtown Milwaukee is an easy, short commute for those that want to access the city’s nightlife and activities.

With a population of 14,000, residents of Shorewood include families, young professionals, and empty nesters – all with a strong sense of community.
