Thank you for finding me here at First Weber. Please let me help you make knowledgeable decisions with your real estate needs. I am licensed through the State of Michigan as a REALTOR. I am a listing and or a buyer agent representative since 2009. I am a member of (Nar) National Association of REALTORS, (Mar) Michigan Association of REALTORS and (UPAR) Upper Peninsula of REALTORS. I was born in Wakefield, Mi and grew up here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I am married, Bonnie, and have 2 grown children and 4 grand children. I currently live on Lake Gogebic, a +13,000 acre fresh water lake in the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I have been in the Lake Gogebic area hunting and fishing here since 1962. I know this area well. I am a Northern Michigan University (NMU) graduate-1974. I majored in Business Administration/Accounting and Finance. I owned and operated The Chalet Party and Convenience Store, Inc in Wakefield for +24 years, had a 31 year career with the USPS and worked for the USPS in Wakefield, Bessemer, Ironwood, Marenisco in Michigan and also in Crivitz, Wi. While attending college I worked part time at Indianhead Mtn. Ski Corp and Connors Forest Industries in Wakefield, Mi.. My past civic organization offices held were Gogebic County Economic Developement Corporation (EDC) board member, past President of the Wakefield Chamber of Commerce, Co Chairman of the Wakefield National Stock Outboard Racing Committee, Director of Big Snow Country, Inc. presently known as the (WUPCVB) Western Upper Peninsula Convention and Visitors Bureau.
With my growing up on the western end of the U P, living, working and investing in this area, I have seen many real estate market swings. I am well aware of the area housing market and work possibilities.
While living full time on Lake Gogebic my wife and I leased and operated a resort, Whitetail Lodging, am currently property managing 6 short term rental properties- casadalago.com and have enjoyed the good life on this lake while being a land owner in the Upper Peninsula.
You may ask "Why real estate" for me later in life. Why not do something you are very knowledgeable and familiar with. I really enjoy the people whom I have met and hope to meet, helping them make reasonable decisions on investing their time and resources with their local real estate needs. My First Weber employment gives me the opportunity and leads me back to my roots of helping and servicing people interesting in coming to our area, as I have done most of my life.
Thank you again for finding me here and I hope to help YOU in the future to make good area real estate decisions.
