I specialize in lakefront property, and for the past 21 years I have studied and become knowledgeable regarding lakefront real estate. I continually track and keep close tabs on lakefront values, the supply of lakefront homes available for consumer purchase and data regarding the preferences of lakefront buyers. I have personally listed and sold some of the most expensive homes reported to our local MLS. I possess the prestigious Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist designation which is held by fewer than 15 brokers or agents in Michigan. The designation, awarded by the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing of Dallas,Texas, is issued to practitioners who have completed stringent educational requirements and successfully demonstrated their expertise in the luxury home and estate market by meeting the demanding performance requirements of working in the $500,000 and over market segment.Certifications and Recognitions

The e-Buyer Certification
I made a career of Mortgage Banking from 1985 until 1995. I then completed a 120 hour course study (Graduate Realtor Institute) and used the related relevant experience gained as a Mortgage Banker to obtain my Real Estate Brokers License in 1995, my first year as a real estate salesperson. I maintained the highest production of any broker/agent at a family owned Cadillac Realty company from 1996 until 2003.
I joined RE/MAX Central in 2003. In 2010, I achieved RE/MAX HALL OF FAME Membership. I earned the RE/MAX Platinum Award for my sales production in 2011 and achieved the highest sales volume of any single acting broker or agent member of the entire Paul Bunyan Board of Realtors® membership. From the time I joined RE/MAX Central, I have earned the RE/MAX 100% Club Award for my sales production each and every year to present. I am proud to maintain my position as one of the top agents in the area (see Sales Statistics under the Profile tab).
