#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.

Hopefully our last cold day for awhile!  Today I had a second showing on a house down in Chassell that seemed to go well.  I also listed a 38 acre parcel up in the middle of nowhere in Keweenaw County.  Our office manager Emily is graduating and will be moving out of the area, so today we started training Tessa, who will be our new office manager.  Anyhow, time to get back to training.  Have a great day!

Some wintry weather today, but it sounds like we’re in for some fairly warm weather coming soon!  Still negotiating a couple of deals here in the office, and getting more and more calls about new listings.  We lowered the price on this really nice home with a huge garage in Lake Linden.  Tonight both the Men and Women Michigan Tech Huskies are hosting playoff basketball games here at the SDC in Houghton, so we’ll be there to support them.  Have a great day!

It is snowing!  Another busy day here at NMLB Houghton.  We received an offer on one of my listings in Chassell, so hopefully that will come together.  Also working on listing a 42 acre parcel down by Jacobsville.  We’ve got a lot of good things happening right now, so I expect quite a few new deals to come together over the next week or so.  Pretty soon I’ll be heading out to go look at a potential new listing in Ripley.  Stay safe on the roads out there!

Today was busy!  I ended up getting a deal together on my Montreal River acreage, so that was a good way to start the morning.  Other than that, the phones were ringing like crazy today!  Lots of buyer inquiries today.  I’m not sure if it is the sunshine or what, but today was hectic in a good way.  I also closed on a fairly big chunk of waterfront out in Stanton Township, and now I have to go show a house in Houghton.  Gotta run, hope your Monday was great!

A sunny Friday in the Keweenaw!  Today I closed on the Northern Orthotics building north of Hancock, so that was great to get that one wrapped up.  Today I met with some nice people who own several parcels across Houghton county that we should be listing soon.  It was a very productive meeting.  Now I’m off to go show my Creamery Road listing in Chassell, and then off to the NRA Banquet after that tonight.  Have a great weekend!   March is almost here!
