#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.

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.   :)

Snow is in the air!  We really can’t complain as it sounds like the eastern U.P. got hit much harder than us.  Today we got all of the wheels in motion for all of the new deals recently put together.  I also entered in a new listing for a beautiful 17 acre parcel down by Bootjack.  Other than that, just enjoying the joys of tax time.  Have a great day!

How was your weekend?  Busy here, since I last checked in I got a deal accepted on a parcel out in Stanton Township, a house in Iron River, and our Rockland Street house in Calumet.  I met with a seller about listing a waterfront lot in Torch Lake Township.  We closed on the 10 acre parcel at the corner of Tapiola Road and Donken Road, so congrats to the sellers and buyers on that.  Here is one of the beautiful lots that we just listed up in Bresnan Estates.  Time for another week of action!
