#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 2013, I was the top closing agent in the entire Upper Peninsula of Michigan!  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 experienced great success in real estate and forestry. 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.

Labor Day Weekend

September 1, 2014

September is here!  One month away from my favorite month of the year.  I hope that everybody had a nice Labor Day Weekend.  We had friends staying with us, and had a good time showing them around the Keweenaw.  I tried to minimize my work time, but I did end up receiving a couple of offers, and one is already accepted.  I’m sure tomorrow will be hectic.  FYI: tomorrow is Landon’s first day of preschool!  Yikes!  Many of you have been following this journal long enough to remember when he was born.  Time flies.

This is shaping up to be a busy weekend for everybody in our office here at Northern Michigan Land Brokers.  Lots of showings, lots of offers.  This morning I’m meeting with some buyers to write an another offer on a new listing up near Calumet.  Yesterday my friends Pat and Niki arrived to visit us, and we made it up to Copper Harbor last night for some fishing out on Lake Superior.  We ended up catching a couple of nice Lake Trout, and more importantly, took in all of the beauty of the Keweenaw Peninsula from the perspective of the lake.  Afterward we had a great dinner at the Harbor Haus to cap off a great night.  I really need to get out fishing more!

I love these cool sunny days!  This morning I got my deal together on my Baraga County house, and also a deal accepted on a house on Ingot Street in Hancock.  In there afternoon I listed a nice commercial building just outside of Houghton.  If the weather cooperates tomorrow afternoon, I’m hoping to go fishing!  I never thought I’d see the day where my first U.P. fishing trip of the year would be at the end of August, and will likely be my only day of fishing this year.  Enjoy summer while it is still here!

Just another 13 hour day!  This morning I went and looked at a waterfront home that I’m listing near Bootjack, and then made my way over to Franklin Township to list a house on Highway Location Road.  After that I went back to the office and wrote an offer on one of the Hancock houses that I had shown yesterday.  I also ended up getting a deal together on my W. Douglass house, and also got an offer on my Lincoln School Road listing.   Then I had to run back up to Cedar Bay to list a waterfront home there.  Late night here entering in three new listings.  Tonight I also ended up writing an offer on another one of my new listings in Baraga County, and it sounds like it will be coming together first thing tomorrow morning.  Anyhow, if that sounds like a lot to keep track of, it is, and you are only getting the short version of everything.  This is a crazy time of year!

As you may have noticed, things look different on the webcam.  The food plot has been planted to Rye, and the corn feeder is fully functional.  It will take about 10 days for the rye to green up, and deer should start showing up anytime.  Today I had a bunch of showings in Houghton/Hancock, and then some more showings tonight down in L’Anse.  It sounds like I’ll be writing a couple different offers as a result of today’s showings.  We also closed on a 10 acre parcel down near Trout Creek, so that was nice to wrap that up.  At dusk tonight I headed out to Hancock Township to take some pictures of a beautiful waterfront property on the Canal, and was happy to have been able to take in such a nice sunset.  Lastly, here is a newer home with acreage just outside of Calumet that I listed last Friday.  Have a great day!
