#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.

Hello!  The highlight of the weekend was a successful hunting trip for me on Saturday afternoon.  Check out ‘The Hunting Journal’ if you’d like to see more about that.  On Sunday we had family over for dinner, and also enjoyed watching the Lions and Packers win.  I also ended up writing a purchase agreement on a Houghton County farm.  Back to the grind tomorrow!

Rainy day today.  We closed on a waterfront cottage down past Dreamland, so congrats to the sellers and buyers on that sale.  I’ve been busy working on a couple of new listings, and also did a price reduction on this beautiful home in Lake Linden, as well as this welcoming home in Hubbell.  We’ve got plenty of showings scheduled this weekend, so no sign on an Autumn slowdown just yet.  Tonight we’re off to the Mine Shaft for some dinner and bowling with friends.  Have a great weekend!

Beautiful fall day!  Today I looked at some potential new listings, and had four or five showings in the Hancock area.  Many of you have been e-mailing and asking about the lack of deer activity on the webcam.  The simple answer is a lack of deer.  I have 11 trail cameras out this year, and I can tell you that the last two winters have taken their toll on our deer herd.  They are still out there, but it is slim.  I still plan to see some more deer start frequenting the feeder on the webcam as we approach November.  Have a great day!

First day back was busy busy.  Wrapped up closing paperwork for Lakeshore Drive in Houghton, 21 acres on Louis Point Road, a house in Greenland, and 80 acres on Brockway Mountain.  Also had a lot of inquiries from sellers for potential new listings. Today I wrote an offer on my new Superior Road listing, and tonight it is already accepted, so that was nice to get that property sold so quickly.  I’m all set for showings with a couple of different buyers tomorrow.  Have a nice day!

Last weekend I made a last minute trip down to Mt. Pleasant to do some hunting with my friend Pat.  We ended up filming a successful hunt, so check out the ‘Hunting Journal’ link on the left if you’d like to watch that.  Now I’m back and ready for work.  Lots to do tomorrow!
