“We had a great experience working with Mary when we purchased our first vacation home on Bear Lake last year and recently leveraged her to purchase our second property in Kalkaska County. Mary’s wealth of knowledge in the northern Michigan market made both purchases very easy.  If you are in the market for a home in Kalkaska or Antrim county, we highly recommend Mary - Brian and Nicolette Bower”

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for helping us purchase our Cub Lake cottage property.

What we appreciate most in your endeavors for our behalf is the exceptional professionalism you upheld in making sure we were looked after.  We knew every effort you made, whether working with the seller’s agent, visiting and revisiting the property, sifting through county records, and talking to our lending bank, was made with our direct interest and benefit in mind.  Your suggestions and guidance via phone call, email communiqué, or text made the entire process an accommodating one.  Having you on our side simplified everything.

Mary fulfilled all her promises.  She listed the property at the high end of going rates and marketed it in creative ways.  The property sold for a higher price than some other Realtors had been willing to list it at.  It sold in 2-1/2 months due, in my opinion, to her excellent marketing.

Mary kept an eye on the property and kept me well informed, which was especially important as I am a long distance seller.  She responded promptly to my questions and patiently led me through the process.

I recommend Mary Janik and Homewaters Recreational Real Estate.

Awesome is no longer just a word after working with you to purchase our new Starvation Lake home!!  Your professionalism, integrity, quick response and candor was so important to us as we worked to purchase a home that will be the nucleus of our family experience on beautiful, peaceful and FUN Starvation Lake.  I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent that truly cares about the customer from all angles!  Thanks so much, Mary!
