Buyer representation When buying a house or land in Southeast Michigan you should contact and interview multiple agents and find out how each represents his or her client. Your relationship with your buyer's agent is like a marriage. We have fiduciary duties that include obedience, loyalty, disclosure , confidentiality, accountability, reasonable care & due diligence- not exactly til death do us part but close enough! And when you find an agent you like you should stay loyal. We work hard for our clients and take our representation of you seriously. There are several pages on this site, as well as on our buyer blog about how we represent our buyers, the nuts and bolts of buying a home and strategies for buying, including everything involved in buying a foreclosure home, short sale listings as well as regular listings.
Seller representation We have proven systems in place to sell your Southeast Michigan home or vacant land. I am the listing agent for all our team listings and pride myself on giving top of the line service. I am very careful and thorough when preparing a market evaluation for your house. I have an excellent and proven marketing plan. And I am available. I return calls, emails and texts. I answer the phone when it rings- when I am able. I don't tend to answer the phone while with other clients; there are exceptions when I'm expecting a call or text about something urgent and can't wait, but that is rare.
Oakland County Michigan Oakland County MI is located just north of Detroit. The Clarkston area, which is where our office is located, is no more than an hour from downtown Detroit. During what I like to call the good times Oakland County grew like a weed. A lot of industry and tech jobs moved to Auburn Hills, the economy in general was rolling along and houses were being built. Starter homes to luxury homes and everything in between. Along with the homes and the jobs came the area amenities that have come to be expected in middle in upscale lifestyles. County and township parks and nature areas were enlarged, managed and created. Soccer fields, walking/bike paths, fitness centers, restaurants, shopping... all sprung up and are still here and still relatively new.
Oakland County MI has more than 1468 lakes, approximately 89,000 acres of public recreation land, entertainment venues such as DTE and Meadowbrook outdoor theaters, The Detroit Zoo, shopping centers like Great Lakes Crossing, countless restaurants and housing opportunities unlike any we've ever seen. Prices and interest rates are low and neither will probably get any lower than they are now.
Clarkston Michigan Clarkston MI is located in North Oakland County and boasts a quaint downtown. In fact when I took a photo a few years ago of downtown Clarkston and compared it to a photo from 1908 the only real differences were no street light and horse and buggy replaced SUV's. Downtown is also graced with Mill Pond and Depot Park. The townships of Independence and Springfield boast both starter and luxury homes. Newer subs with estate sized yards and lakefront homes ranging from cottages to mansions. Homes on acreage or hobby farms can be found in the outlying areas of these townships. Prices have stabilized and seem to actually be inching up again.
Lake Orion Michigan Lake Orion MI can be accessed from exit 81 off I-75 at M-24. Oakland County. Take M-24 north past the Palace of Auburn Hills and you will hit the Village of Lake Orion. Both the Village of Lake Orion and Orion Township enjoyed the same growth that Clarkston and the rest of Oakland County experienced. Lake Orion features over 4600 acres of state land in the form of Bald Mountain Recreation Area, township and county parks, public and private lakes, shopping, restaurants and easy access to both I-75 and I-69. Home prices are on the rise and both interest rates and inventory are low.
Oxford Michigan Oxford MI is just north of Lake Orion MI and boasts more than 50 lakes, 4 local parks, and both public and private golf courses. The downtown offers an array of unique shops, restaurants, a 6 screen movie theatre, and business services. Many village homes have historical character, which contributes to the overall quaint character of this community. The township features starter homes as well as more upscale homes, lakefront homes, golf course communities and in the more outlying areas you can still find homes on acreage, horse farms and working farms.
