My Story

Michigan Fly Fishing Properties

I founded Homewaters, L.L.C. late in 2006 as the next step necessary to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving profession of Real Estate.  That was the beginning of a trend of brokerages moving toward an internet based profession and away from the increasingly ineffective bricks and mortar office.  We've found that we can be much more effective for our clients by focusing our resources towards marketing and away from the large overhead associated with a physical office.  Our continued success and growth since that time, in a market that saw nearly every other Michigan brokerage suffer, is proof that our business model is effecitve. 

In recent times, the growth of our business has allowed me to refocus my efforts toward servicing buyer and seller clients on The Au Sable and Manistee Rivers where my passion truly is.  I've been fortunate to have sold most of the finest properties on these two famous rivers as well as dozens of charming fishing cottages where anglers can hone their craft.  This depth of experience provides me a level of insight into the Grayling riverfront market that is a great resource for my buyer and seller clients.  Finding the right water is usually more important than the curtains in a cottage and that's not lost in my mind's eye.  

My wife, Mandy, and I are both licensed REALTORS and we work together to ensure that our clients receive the highest level of professional services available in today’s real estate market. With three daughters ranging in age from 6 to 14, there's never a dull moment.  Our girls have quickly gained a passion for spending time on the water, whether it's boating on The Bay or Elk and Torch Lakes or splashing around in one of northern Michigan's famous rivers.  It's with this background in mind that I share my personal experiences and passion for the region to help our seller and buyer clients acheive their goals.

We look forward to helping find your Home Waters in Northern Michigan.  Please contact us at your convenience if we can offer any assistance.
