#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 warm, beautiful day in the U.P.! We’re off and running on another busy week. I’m working on another new listing in Hancock, one in Ontonagon, and also trying to wrap up a couple new deals. There is a new poll question for you to vote on. Have a great week!

Good Friday

Hello all!  Today is Landon’s 4th birthday, so we’re looking forward to having a party for him over the weekend.  He is also having a friend over tonight for some Ambassador Pizza, so that should be fun.  We’re going to have a little Easter egg hunt for the kids.  Here is the very nice home on Lake Ave. in Hancock that I just listed yesterday.  Very welcoming home that will be sure to please the next owner.  Also, we’re having an open house on this beautiful home on Eight Street in Houghton from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturday, so come on by!  Have a great Easter weekend!

Well, the big snowstorm was the talk of the town.  16 inches of snow or more were dumped over the Keweenaw Peninsula over the last 24 hours.  We were still open for business today, and it was productive.  We got a deal accepted on 4,857 acres in Baraga County, so that is very exciting.  I also listed a real nice home in Hancock later this afternoon.  Anyhow, it sounds like this recent snow should be melting up fairly quickly over the next few days, as we should be back into milder weather.  Have a great Friday!

No big excitement here today, just typing up some new listings, and getting ready for another snow storm.  It is supposed to start snowing heavy this afternoon, through the evening, and into tomorrow.  Gotta love the Keweenaw!

Today I measured a house that I’ll be listing in Hancock, and also checked out a house north of L’Anse that I’ll be listing later this spring as well.  Tonight I sent out a purchase agreement on some vacant land out by Bootjack, so hopefully we can reach an agreement on that one as well.  By the way, some people asked me why I ran the snowfall contest all the way until the month of May.   They are calling for up to 10 more inches tonight, so now you know why we are waiting until May to announce the winner.   :)
