#1 in the Upper Peninsula!

Hi, I’m Josh Stein and I welcome you to my website.  Please take your time and check out the many interesting features on this site.  In 2014, I was the #1 selling agent in the Keweenaw MLS!  I currently cover Keweenaw, Houghton, Baraga, and Ontonagon counties.  I own the Houghton Branch of Northern Michigan Land Brokers, where we are very effective at selling land and homes all over the Western Upper Peninsula.  I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree from Michigan Tech in Forestry, and also own Northwoods Forest Management where I manage forests for private landowners. 

With my combined knowledge of our natural resources, extensive sales training, and an aggressive work ethic, I have enjoyed a rewarding career so far in my 11 years in the real estate business.  Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, waterfront, vacant land, or some fantastic upper peninsula hunting and fishing property, call me for a refreshing new experience in real estate.

Check out the new “Alaska Live Bear Cam“.  Really neat cam of bears catching salmon in the river.  You can click the link in the previous sentence, or always find it on the left side of the homepage under “Cams”.   Have a great weekend everybody!  Happy Independence Day!

Pretty nice day in the Keweenaw.  It also sounds like we are in for some pretty nice weather for the holiday weekend.  This morning I went up to Keweenaw County to photograph a new 116 acre listing.  Later in the day I looked at a nice house in Houghton that I’ll be listing, and then eventually had a third showing on a home that I should be writing an offer on tomorrow.  We also ended up getting a deal together on a 40 acre parcel in Houghton County today as well.  I saw the bear again last night, and it sounds like there was a buck on cam this morning as well.

July is here!  The Keweenaw seems to be getting busy with people coming into the area for the holiday weekend.  We had a lot of ‘walk-in’s’ today with people inquiring about properties.  Yesterday I listed a large chunk of land and waterfront out at Keystone Bay in Keweenaw County.  I’m trying to wrap up a couple of deals in time to go meet some friends for dinner up at Fitzgerald’s in Eagle River tonight.  Also, I saw the bear on cam again last night.  I’m sure he’ll be there again tonight to keep working on the remaining corn.  Someday I will outsmart this bear, someday.

Lots of showings today.  A house in Trimountain, as well as several nice homes in Houghton.  We’re negotiating a handful of deals right now that are still going back and forth.  Here is nice 100 acre parcel with the Otter River running through it that we just listed near Tapiola.  Nice price on that one.  Tonight has been another fairly late one at the office, as it seems like we are continually doing training.  Lastly, the bear has been on webcam every night, usually between 10 pm and 12 am EST.  Check it out!

Are you ready for July?  Saturday was busy, I showed and wrote an offer on a house down in Silver City near the Porcupine Mountains.  Later on, I ended up also writing an offer on my new vacant land listing on Harma Road in Stanton Township.  Today we closed on our trailer and 20 acres on Beck Road in Ontonagon.  So, you may notice a bunch of corn on the webcam.  Bear proof feeder 2.0 has failed.  The overall frame is fine, the bear just managed to climb high enough to get ahold of the plastic barrel, and rip it to the ground.  Check ‘pic of the day’ on Tuesday if you’d like to see the culprit.  I’m now formulating a plan for Bear Proof Feeder 3.0.  It shouldn’t take long, I just need to make some modifications.  If you want to see the bear, lately he has been feeding on there sometime between 10 pm and midnight.
