#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 2014, I was the #1 selling agent in the Keweenaw MLS!  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 enjoyed a rewarding career so far in my 11 years in the real estate business.  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.

Lots of showings today.  A house in Trimountain, as well as several nice homes in Houghton.  We’re negotiating a handful of deals right now that are still going back and forth.  Here is nice 100 acre parcel with the Otter River running through it that we just listed near Tapiola.  Nice price on that one.  Tonight has been another fairly late one at the office, as it seems like we are continually doing training.  Lastly, the bear has been on webcam every night, usually between 10 pm and 12 am EST.  Check it out!

Are you ready for July?  Saturday was busy, I showed and wrote an offer on a house down in Silver City near the Porcupine Mountains.  Later on, I ended up also writing an offer on my new vacant land listing on Harma Road in Stanton Township.  Today we closed on our trailer and 20 acres on Beck Road in Ontonagon.  So, you may notice a bunch of corn on the webcam.  Bear proof feeder 2.0 has failed.  The overall frame is fine, the bear just managed to climb high enough to get ahold of the plastic barrel, and rip it to the ground.  Check ‘pic of the day’ on Tuesday if you’d like to see the culprit.  I’m now formulating a plan for Bear Proof Feeder 3.0.  It shouldn’t take long, I just need to make some modifications.  If you want to see the bear, lately he has been feeding on there sometime between 10 pm and midnight.

These weeks go by way too fast, which means that summer will likely also go by too fast.  This morning I had a showing up in Keweenaw County, and then later in the morning I listed 100 acres with the Otter River running through down by Tapiola.  Later on I ended up getting one deal together on the Post Road 40 acres, and then also got a deal together on a beautiful waterfront home near Chassell.  Now it’s time to get paperwork ready for tomorrow’s showings.  As far as the bug report, deer flies were out, but no ticks today.  The warm weather is nice!

Today’s nice weather brought out the buyers!  I ended up writing four offers today, two on some higher end homes, and two on vacant land.  I’m optimistic that we’ll get all of them together.  Here is an incredible property that I listed this week on Lake Superior up in Allouez Township.  That is a lot of incredible waterfront and timberland.  Anyhow, today’s offers kept me very busy, and now it is time to get ready for some early appointments tomorrow.  I hope the weather stays nice like this!

It rained much more than expected today.  I’m not sure if Landon’s T-Ball game will still be on tonight or not.  It was a good day to stay in the office and enter listings.  I also set up quite a few showings over the next few days.  This afternoon we closed on a sizable piece of waterfront on the Houghton Canal, so it was nice to seal that deal.  Off to an appointment now….
