Buying and Selling Homes in Northern Michiganmsartha-blank-sign.fw_

Thank you for visiting my website. If you’re interested in buying property in Northern Michigan, chances are you’ve already looked at a number of websites. I’m pleased that you found mine and I encourage you to spend a few minutes looking around. Purchasing a home is the biggest investment most families will ever make. It can be stressful. Selling a home can be even more stressful. There’s always that temptation to “do it yourself” and put more money in your pocket. However, statistics show that most individuals who attempt to market their own home eventually end up turning the job over to a real estate agent. Of course, choosing a real estate agent in itself can be stressful. You may have a number of friends who are agents and maybe even a relative…all those different personalities…how to choose! (?) I’m pleased you came to my website. I hope it is a reflection of my personality and professionalism. Please take a few minutes to look around and then, let’s talk.

Walloon Lake

Walloon Lake is Lake Charlevoix’s pretty little sister. This enclosed lake is a bit quieter than Lake Charlevoix, but just as majestic in her own right. Walloon has 37 miles of mostly sandy shoreline and over 4000 acres. The lake was formed by glaciers, is spring fed, and is a true gem of the Up-North landscape.

The tightly knit community of Walloon Lake waterfront owners adds to the allure of ownership. Once there you will see why. The numerous protected bays provide great places to waterski or just hang out, the fishing is exceptional, and the water quality is excellent. Is Walloon Lake right for you?
