M-22 Region Lake Property & Luxury Home Specialist


Thank you for this opportunity to introduce myself as your Benzie County based real estate professional.    

My life-long passion for this region is rooted in 100-years of family history that began with a grandfather’s “up north” fishing trip.   He discovered Big Platte Lake where, in 1924, work began on a 2-story log house that still stands on the north shore.    Spending summers with grandparents as a child, returning with my own children to vacation at my parent’s lake house, I now have the good fortune to live lakeside near the original homestead.     

Joining Coldwell Banker – Schmidt Realtors, the premier real estate company in northern Michigan, is a unique opportunity to share my enthusiasm for and extensive knowledge of the region to help others find a their own piece of this special place.   This is also a natural extension of a  30+ year real estate career that includes hotel construction project management, redevelopment and sales, all  defined by delivering optimum results for employers and clients.      

If you are a buyer in search of a lakeside vacation getaway, a cabin off the beaten path, undeveloped land for hunting or future construction, or to settle into a year round home in and around Benzie, Leelanau and Grand Traverse counties, I will guide you to all available properties.   If you are an owner and would like a market analysis to help with decisions regarding the future of your property, I look forward to providing this free service.    This will include any recommendations for value-added maintenance and repairs that, in my experience, attract the most interest among prospective buyers.     When you are ready to sell your property, my efforts will be directed toward insuring that your goals are met from listing through closing.   

Communication is essential to successful partnerships.  To facilitate mutual understanding, you will be asked to share such key background information as recreational interests, preferred locations, price range and other priorities that will guide us to your ideal venue.   As we move forward, you can expect information updates including new listings for a buyer to consider and market changes that could impact both buyers and sellers.    You can reach out to me at any time for any reason and be assured of a timely response.   And, when a closing date for your purchase or sale is on the horizon, I will make sure you receive all information necessary to be fully prepared for this exciting new beginning.

I look forward to meeting and working with you soon.
