   With more than 30 years experience in Leelanau County, Traverse City and surrounding areas, I understand the beauty of this area is incomparable!  This understanding motivates my commitment to helping others achieve their own Up North dreams.  Originally from Cincinnati, my wife and I have been homeowners in Leelanau County since 1991.  I know the area, the market and, as an independent businessman since 1980, what it takes to work hard for my clients to ensure success.

   I have been in personal real estate investment and management since 1986 and have invested in and sold both residential and commercial properties.  An entrepreneur at heart, I have successfully launched, owned, operated and sold several of my own businesses, and managed staffs of up to 35 employees.

    Whether your needs are buying or selling residential property, investing in waterfront or commercial real estate, my goal is to assist you with professionalism, business acumen and with the state-of-the-art technology that Coldwell Banker Schmidt has put at my disposal.
