"We have moved several times, working with numerous agents.  Stefan is the only agent we would recommend!  He is prompt, responsive, a great negotiator, and a great communicator.  Stefan offered the most thorough competitive analysis we have ever seen and pushed for the last dollar.  His legal expertise helped the closing when there could have been a snag.  We have never had an agent work this hard for us and we would work with Stefan again."
​"We looked for a house on our own for over a year, contacting selling agents when we saw a house we were interested in.  Our first contact with Stefan was to ask advice on an offer we had already made.  He went out of his way to assist us with that situation.  That sale did not materialize, but Stefan helped us find our new home.  He showed us a house we had seen in the listings, but had never bothered to look at.  We've bought and sold 6 homes (one is on the market now); built two and sold them.  We've worked with many realtors we've been very happy with, but working with our first Buyer's Broker was a transforming experience!"

A WORD FROM RAY...“I  graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Business Administration, having majored in marketing, and spent 20 years with the Automotive Industry as a Purchasing Manager and Senior Seal Representative.  However, a fascination with Real Estate and a desire to live in Northern Michigan prompted me to earn my license and move to the Petoskey/Harbor Springs area in 1981.

I am also a member of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, and  am a graduate of the Real Estate Institute - University of Michigan and received both the Certified Residential Specialist and Certified Residential Broker designations for the National Association of REALTORS ® All of the proof of my commitment to excellence, continuing education and professional service.

Paddleboarding - Northern Michigan Style

Paddleboarding on Little Traverse Bay
With temperatures expected to soar into the 80’s this week, local paddleboarding enthusiasts aren’t about to let a little bit of ice on Little Traverse Bay get in the way of their favorite pastime. This group took advantage of the East wind, which pushed the ice toward Harbor Springs, to launch their crafts at the Petoskey State Park. There will be plenty of water to enjoy this summer, with Lake Michigan-Huron water levels up about a foot from last year.

"Hurricane" Like Damage on Little Traverse Bay

Little Traverse Bay, along with the rest of Northern Lower Michigan, was hammered by strong thunderstorms last night, which caused extensive damage in the area of Wequetonsing, just East of Harbor Springs.  As can be seen in these photos, almost no docks were spared, and numerous boats ended up on shore.  While we are used to seeing images like this from areas ravaged by hurricanes, it is not very often that we have storm damage such as this Up North.  The NOAA weather buoy in Little Traverse Bay registered peak wind gusts of 38.9 knots out of the SSW at 10:00 p.m. and 10:10 p.m., with peak wave height of 6.2 feet measured at 10:50 p.m.
