#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.

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!

Today we re-listed the Riutta business on M-26 near Atlantic Mine.  That is a good price for a large newer building in a good location.  We’re getting really good buyer activity these last couple of weeks, so I have a feeling we’re in for a busy spring.  Tonight Michigan Tech has a big rivalry basketball game with Northern Michigan over in Marquette, so good luck to the Huskies!

Another cold and beautiful day in the Keweenaw!  Today was mostly an office day.  I’ve got three more closings this week that we’re trying to get wrapped up.  Please keep those ‘Pics of the Day’ coming, they never fail to impress.  Have a great day!

Today was a little snowier than expected.  We closed on an 80 acre parcel near Bear Lake, so that was good to get that deal wrapped up.  I also relisted the LeBlanc Motel (and house) for a greatly reduced price.  We’ve had a fair amount of inquiries on this place, so maybe this new price will make it happen.  If you’ve been watching the webcam, you probably haven’t seen any deer lately.  If you have seen one, shoot me an e-mail and let me know, as I haven’t seen any for awhile.  I think that with this last cold blast, they have all migrated out of the area looking for more thermal cover.  I do seem to have a group of turkeys that are still visiting though.  Have a great day!

Here we go with another week of real estate in the U.P.!  This morning we closed on a 40 acre parcel near Trout Creek, so congrats to the buyers and sellers on a very smooth transaction.  I spent most of the day at an appointment where I listed a beautiful Koski Log Home just outside of Houghton/Hancock.  We should have it loaded into the MLS tomorrow morning.  Tonight I met with some of my sellers, and they accepted an offer we just wrote on their house up in Calumet.  So, a pretty solid start to the week!  Hopefully these temps will warm up a bit soon!
