#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.

Beautiful Autumn day!  We’ve lost a lot of leaf cover over the past couple of days.  Today I was able to get out in the woods, and also check out a potential waterfront listing on Huron Bay in Baraga County.  I know that many of you noticed some action on the webcam lately.  There was a nice buck on the cam last night, and other deer action as of late.  It is getting to be that time of year!

Back in action today.  Mostly a paperwork day, as we have a bunch of closings coming up over the next week or so.  I looked at a couple of potential listings today.  We’re getting a lot of questions about whether or not this is a good time of year to list.  It all depends on the type of property.  Some categories are certainly more active during times of the year, but still, we sell land/homes nearly every week of the year.  I do have some recreational properties in some areas that I’ll hold off on listing until Spring, but I still like to at least talk with sellers about what they have, as often times I may find a buyer for it before it even hits the market.  So, if you are trying to decide about whether or not to list, get in touch with us, and we can help you make an educated decision.  Have a great week!

Weekend

October 19, 2014

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!
