Geneva Lakefront Realty is a full service real estate brokerage serving the Lake Geneva real estate market. That’s the only market we strive to serve. If you’re keen on transforming your weekends by way of a Lake Geneva vacation home, then we would be honored to help you pursue your real estate goals. Founded by Broker Craig Curry in 1977 as a part time business, the model sought to sell Lake Geneva vacation homes, and Lake Geneva vacation homes only. That passion to serve just one narrow market segment has yielded remarkable results.
David C. Curry grew up in a modest lakefront home in Williams Bay; a brown Dutch Colonial house at the end of Upper Loch Vista Drive. In 1996, he joined Geneva Lakefront Realty. It was around that time that Herb, of Herb’s Gas Station, offered up an unsolicited prediction: David wouldn’t have much success because he was too young. After plodding through the market for the decade that followed, David committed to refocus the efforts of his business on the market that it was originally founded to serve: The lakefront and lake access market on Geneva Lake.
Since the start of 2010, David has closed more than $660,000,000 in sales, nearly every one of those transactions involving Lake Geneva vacation homes. He has been the top producing agent in Walworth County for seven years in a row. He’s been the top producing agent in the State of Wisconsin, most recently for 2021 (per Real Trends + Tom Ferry). He has written and printed Summer Homes For City People for the past thirteen consecutive years, and writes his widely read Lake Geneva real estate blog. His ability to articulate market trends has added much needed transparency to the real estate valuation process.
David lives with his wife Michele and their two children, Thomas and May, on their Walworth Township farm. It’s not really a farm, of course, but there are some dogs, a gravel drive (Update: it has been paved), a few chickens (Update: the neighborhood fox has eaten them all), and at least one large tractor (there are now two tractors), so it’s sort of a farm. David enjoys boating, tennis, sailing and fly fishing. He used to serve on the board of the Geneva Lake Conservancy but discovered he was allergic to summer Saturday meetings. He can be found most summer days somewhere around the lake, or perhaps in it, and in the winter you’ll find him playing tennis at the Grand Geneva. He is a dominant ping pong player, routinely beating his 19 year old son. But most of all, he’d like to be your next agent.
To schedule a meeting with David about either buy or sell side representation, please email him.
Jessica Genrich is originally from Racine, WI where a childhood with Lake Michigan as her backyard created a love for lake adventures, windsurfing and sailing. She and her husband Adam moved to Lake Geneva when their three children were small and have loved the area ever since. They enjoy the lifestyle Lake Geneva promotes and spend free time boating in summer, skiing in winter and tennis in any season.
Jessica started in real estate in 2005 in Racine County with opportunities to sell a variety of properties including horse farms and Lake Michigan beachfront homes. When her family relocated, she was eager to learn everything about the Geneva Lake area and has been intrigued by the uniqueness of the second home market continually thriving in the associations around the lake.
Jessica also has experience as a loan originator where she gained knowledge of the mortgage loan process that has proved to be invaluable. With experience in many aspects of real estate, the diversity of the business fuels her passion and excitement.
Karen Rappaport grew up in Glenview, Illinois with real estate in her blood—her family founded Koenig & Strey Realty there in 1961. Her ties to Lake Geneva also date back generations. Her dad enjoyed dancing to the big bands at the Riviera as a young man and started teaching her how to drive a boat on the lake before she could reach the steering wheel.
Karen received a degree in Education from University of Illinois in Champaign and a Master’s Degree from National Louis University. She taught 6th grade in Glenview, but eventually returned to the family business of real estate. Soon she was an award-winning Realtor on Chicago’s North Shore.
Her love for Lake Geneva never left, so she brought her family and real estate skills here. She is so passionate about Lake Geneva she started the Loving Lake Geneva podcast, interviewing people who make the area so special. (It’s available wherever you get your podcasts!)
Karen lives in Country Club Estates in Fontana with her husband and dogs, where she is grateful to have a stunning view and exceptionally friendly neighbors. In the summer, when she’s not selling real estate, you’ll find her on her boat, trying to teach her husband how to dock. Sometimes successfully.
