I moved to the Boyne area in 1986 from Ohio after considering several communities in the northwestern section of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Among the many reasons for my choice are the beautiful hills, crystal clear streams and lakes as well as the proximity to Boyne Mountain Resort, Lake Charlevoix and Walloon Lake and Lake Michigan – all of which are well known for recreational activities year round. Since my arrival, I have experienced the amenities of the area and its many offerings. I now believe that this is among the finest areas in the world in which to live, work and play. I am active in local community events, the Chamber of Commerce, Boyne Thunder, and the local association of Realtors as well as being Associate Broker at North Harbor Real Estate in Boyne City, Michigan. Having over 30 years in the business, I have met many of our local inhabitants and have made many friends along the way. Statistics show that past customers and clients are my best source of referrals and revenue. It pays to make people happy. I enjoy the opportunity to help my clients meet or exceed their real estate needs, with the added bonus of becoming their friend in the process. In 2008 I received the designation of Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist to better help my clients evaluate and market their waterfront, vacation and residential properties. My focus is on all sports lakes including Lake Charlevoix, Walloon Lake, Deer Lake and Six Mile Lake, Lake Michigan and Thumb Lake.
