#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.

I need there to be more hours in a day.  Lots of hours lately, and really trying hard to stay ahead of everything.  I had a good appointment today to list a few different waterfront parcels.  Tonight I had some showings on some higher end homes near Houghton, and one of them went really well, so we’ll see what happens with that.  Lots of price reductions lately by the way.  It is getting to be that time of year where it seems like people get more and more flexible on their prices.  Lastly, a big thank you to those of you who sent in some great pics for ‘pic of the day’.  Always appreciated.  Have a wonderful day!

Lots of miles today.  In the morning I drove down to L’Anse to check out a waterfront property that I may be listing.  After that I headed out to the Bootjack area and had a great showing on this waterfront lot on Blue Water Way.  After a quick catch up in the office I ended up going back down to L’Anse for a short notice showing on a nice home down there.  I wish I could have covered both of those appointments in one trip, but sometimes that is the way it goes.  By the way, I’m foreseeing a shortage of pictures for ‘Pic of the Day’ over the next few days, so I’m hoping that a few of you can help me out and send some of your nice pics to me at  If you’ve sent one previously and it never got posted, don’t hesitate to send it again, as sometimes they can get buried in my inbox pretty fast.  I always enjoy seeing all of your scenic pics, and so do the thousands of visitors on this site each day.  Thank you and have a great day!

Busy Monday

July 28, 2014

I think my phone set a record today for the most calls in one day.  Starting about a week ago, things have really turned on with buyer inquiries, and today was the busiest day yet.  Other than fielding phone calls, I had a good showing down in Baraga Township most of the day, and then another lengthy showing near Chassell tonight.  Now I’m here in the office trying to get caught back up from all of that.  Anyhow, I think I’m as caught up as I’m going to get tonight, and I’m ready to get home and get some sleep.  Have a nice day!

July is already winding down.  Quite a bit of work this weekend, lots of phone calls and e-mails.  We’ve had quite a surge of buyer activity over the last week.  Saturday I checked out a house near Calumet that I should be listing soon.  Sunday I ended up getting a deal together on 77 acres in Ontonagon County, so that was nice to end the weekend with a new sale.  Tomorrow I’ve already got a few different showings scheduled, and the rest of the week is filling up fast.  This summer will be over before you know it.  Have a great Monday everyone!

Getting a little rain today, which never hurts.  Today I worked towards getting a couple new deals together, and also had a closing up in Calumet.  The buyers indicated how pleased they were that our agents went above and beyond to help them make the deal happen, so it is always feels great to hear that.  Word of mouth is really what has built our business, and I thank all of you that have helped with that.  Time to get home and have some dinner, and then back to work tomorrow.  Enjoy the summer weekend, it will be gone before you know it!
