Pure Michigan, the Great Lake State, is all about water. Fresh water. Crystal clear, reflect-the-sky in cobalt, aquamarine and indigo blue water, trimmed in sugar sand. Land that borders water, or presents long views over it, has been my lifelong personal and professional obsession. Sail, paddle, fish, or lie on a beach and enjoy it here, in the Grand Traverse Area. This website aims to help you get your share of some of the best waterfront real estate in the world.

My waterfront listings are immediately below, and you can browse listings on the region's stellar lakes and bays by clicking any of the boxes.
