#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.

Very chilly day.  Melissa played in a golf tournament today, so I’m sure she had a cold but fun day.  Today we set up some upcoming showings over the next few days.  Lately all of our deals and closings are coming together smoothly, which is a good thing.  Some people think that a Realtor’s job is done once you get an offer accepted, but in reality, the work is just beginning.  Working with appraisers and lenders is getting more complicated all the time, and the rules are always changing.  Our job is to stay ahead of everything, to make everything smooth and painless for our clients.  Lastly, we just dropped the price on this nice Ripley home with three beautiful lots.  Hope everyone had a great day!

September is half over!  I spent the morning in the woods, and then in the office all afternoon.  We dropped the price on this spacious ranch home on Chassell Painesdale Road, and also on this updated home in Calumet.  You’ll see a lot of price reductions this time of year, this is actually a great time to year to be a buyer.  Also, check out ‘Pic of the Day’ for a really neat bear pic.  Take care!

Fairly laid back day, which is nice once in awhile.  Mostly working on all of the details for a few upcoming closings.  We’re also still negotiating on a couple of recent offers.  This afternoon I spent some time working in the woods in some of my old stomping grounds.  It was neat visiting some forest that I haven’t been to in quite a few years.  You can tell that Autumn is coming, as the ferns are dying, leaves are turning just a bit, and the days are certainly getting shorter.  It is a great time of year!

Nice mid-September weekend in the Upper Peninsula.  We had a handful of showings this weekend, and some of them sound like they might end up being productive.  Other than that, I spent a lot of time in the woods, which felt great.  Time to sell some more real estate this week!

It was below freezing this morning!  Today I received an offer on my Arvidson Road Log Cabin near Baraga.  Later today we closed on a 40 acre parcel on Fox Road, so that was a good way to end the day.  Hoping to get a lot of work done in the woods this weekend.  Take care out there!
