About Us

Northern Great Lakes Property Management started years ago with a young kid and an idea. He wanted to own his own property. His original experience with rental property management began at the age of 18. Having had the desire to own real estate since a very young age, he sold his primary source of transportation to invest in his first property which was a small cabin on Houghton Lake.

This was in a simpler time in real estate when many property owners would sell on a land contract which eliminated any need for the involvement of a bank. It was a simple agreement between the property owner and prospective buyer. Since he was 18 and just out of high school, the availability of land contract terms was pivotal in his move into real estate ownership and management. He moved forward from that point and continued to purchase properties over the years. He also learned some valuable lessons that are still used to this day on property maintenance and management. Residential, commercial and vacation were all part of the learning curve which helped him moved forward with his development as a successful real estate investor and manager.

His experiences have contributed to his solid understanding of real estate and property management.¬†As the years went by, he ventured into managing properties for family, friends and clients then to later to flipping properties, however, the crash changed that as the previously available “handyman specials” were hard to find. Sensing a need for property managers, the shift was made to concentrate more on the management aspect.

Today, the NGLPM team of property management professionals manages properties, primarily for clients, typically vacation property owners as well as investors with many properties. Any sized property, in Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse and Leelanau.
