Professional Background

 

Hello, my name is John Solomon and I am a licensed realtor in beautiful Northern Michigan.  I have vacationed, boated, fished, hunted, golfed, and lived in this are since I was five years old.  My first memories of the area began on Glen Lake, Lake Leelanau, and Lake Michigan where my grandparents rented various cottages as they were winter residents of the Florida Keys.  My grandparents later purchased a home on Skegemog Point on Elk Lake in Grand Traverse County, and built a second home next door so our huge family could gather during their vacations.  My summers as a child were spent navigating the chain of lakes and finding some of the best fishing holes.  When not on the lake we would spend time at local places like Fish Town, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor and the National Cherry Festival.

  After graduating High School from a small town in downstate Michigan, I knew Up North was where I wanted to be.  I began working at the Grand Traverse Resort at which time I started in the Golf Course industry.  Due to the fact I loved working out of doors and golfing, I obtained my Associate Degree from Northwestern Michigan College and Michigan State University in Turfgrass Mgt.  I was fortunate to work on, and play on some of the best and most beautiful golf courses in the state.  I worked in the golf course industry for another eight years before starting a local lawn and landscape company.  My company maintained many up-scale properties in the area.  During this time I was able to work with a great number of clients, who later became great friends.  After twelve years of owning the business, I sold it due to economic changes and once again I started another career.  I obtained my Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice from Lake Superior State University.  I worked in the non-profit, corrections and human services fields for another seven years.  During this time I was able to help individuals and families involved in the Criminal Justice system improve their situations and also promote to the overall safety and security of society.  

Now finally the reason you are on my website, Real Estate!  With the combination of my love for the area, knowledge of the area, my education, sales and marketing experience, and various other work experiences, I would be honored and excited to help you with relocation, selling, or finding your next home, lakefront, acreage, vacation, recreational or commercial properties.  I look forward in gaining the privilege to assist you and your family with making Northern Michigan the place you live, work, and play!
