Welcome to my Website


Gale Fox, a native Michigander, fell in love with Leelanau County the first time he saw its rolling hills, orchards and blue Lake Michigan waters.  Gale says "Leelanau tugged at my heartstrings and I knew I wanted to live there someday."


Gale's successful career in sales management with a top Fortune 100 company took him to many cities throughout the U.S. but every summer he and his wife Gail, returned to Leelanau for vacation with their family.


"Our dream was to return one day, so we bought property on the Lake Michigan shoreline and built our house for vacations."  After more corporate moves, the Fox's decided to listen to "the tugs of their hearts" and moved to Leelanau.

Gale decided he would continue his career in real estate and joined Coldwell Banker Schmidt in 1987.  He loved the challenges of helping people sell and buy property and the interactions with the clients during the process.  Gale had found his dream.  By 1990 he was a leading agent in the Suttons Bay office and is consistently a top producer year after year.  In 2005 Gale was the leading sales volume agent for Coldwell Banker Leelanau County, sold 7 of 14 total residential listings on Lake Michigan and was inducted by Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors into the "International President's Circle."

Gale's service to every buyer and seller includes his years of experience and knowledge about the specialized Leelanau market, 1031 exchanges, trends and metrics.  With over $100 million dollars in sales, Gale has the experience to represent buyers and sellers successfully.

Gale invites you to allow him to help fulfill your dream in Leelanau.
