Broker Owner

People often ask me why I chose to be a Realtor and Broker, and the answer is quite simple: love of this community.  I’ve spent my entire life here in Northern Michigan, and there is no other place where my husband and I would rather live and raise our six beautiful children.  While we do love the many beaches, family-friendly activities, and never-ending stream of summer festivals, our passion for this region goes deeper than that—we love this place because it is HOME, and I can tell you with absolute certainty that this is truly where my heart is.
