PERSONAL BACKGROUND

I grew up in small town America, Ypsilanti, Michigan. We spent much of our time between Ypsi. and Ann Arbor.  Ypsilanti has Eastern Michigan University and Ann Arbor has University of Michigan. My parents owned a small chain of jewelry stores called Moray's Jewelry. They were very active in our town's Chamber of Commerce, Eastern Michigan, cultural activities and religious organizations.  Mom and Dad worked at their stores and were the best husband and wife team I have ever seen.  Before Mom married Dad she was a milliner who made and designed hats. She sold hats at Milgrim's in the Fisher Building to all the Ford, Chrysler and Fisher families. I learned my best business practices from them. Be on time, be honest, have integrity and listen to people. My sister, Dr. Stephanie Kutzen who is a Doctor of Psychology and an author has agreed that our best skills we learned from Mom and Dad.

My husband, Sheldon Levin RPH and I have been married 35 years and have 4 children and 5 grands. We are proud of all of them. We have traveled all over the world...visited 50 countries on every continent except Antarctica. Gourmet cooking has been my hobby since I was very young. I also am an avid reader and I like biography and auto- biographies the best.

What Clients and Customers Say About Judy Levin

We could have sold our Lake Leelanau cottage on our own. We could have come up with a marketing strategy. We could have done print and internet ads. We could have spent many hours talking and showing. We could have waded through all the papers. We would have however, lost money. Because of Judy Levin's expertise, experience and drive, we ended up making more money than if we had done it ourselves. Judy Levin sells Lake Leelanau property. You can take that to the bank.

We feel we got a lot of house and a beautiful location for the money. thanks for your help, and we will recommend you without reservation.

Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with finding us a nice lot near the water. We know you didn't get rich off our sale, yet you still gave us great, full professional service. Thanks again! We'll see you in the future.
