Welcome to a place of unrivaled beauty and plentiful recreational attractions to enjoy during all four seasons – Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula. Whether you have come to experience the miles of Lake Huron shoreline that distinguish our landscape, or the extensive trails and wilderness adventures throughout our majestic hardwood forests, there are limitless opportunities to explore the natural wonders of this area.

When you consider all of the outdoor activities that are unique to this region, it’s easy to see why vacation seekers and year-round homeowners have invested in the communities of Mackinac and Chippewa County. As a 20-year resident of the East U.P., I have been fortunate to gain first-hand knowledge of the customs and traditions that have been providing enrichment to the people of this area for so many generations.

It is my sincere belief that the experience and relationships I have forged over the years, provide a vital resource for effectively guiding my clients regarding their real estate needs. I strive to utilize my contacts among lenders, builders, skilled labor and multiple townships to implement a client-focused brand of service. My goals are not met simply by directing a purchaser or seller through a transaction, but rather by addressing their needs honesty and constructively throughout our interactions.

If you're curious about the real estate market in this amazing place to call home, I am happy to advise any client looking for a local, home sales expert in the Wild and Wonderful East U.P.!
