Whether you are looking for Lake Michigan waterfront or a quiet place to build your dream home, I can help. I've been working in real estate in the Manistique/Schoolcraft County area for over 20 years, let my experience and knowledge work for you in your attempt to find the perfect home, vacation home, camp or just that get-a-way spot you have always dreamed of!
Born and raised in Manistique, I am a yooper at heart. My interest in real estate runs deep in my blood and was present at a young age. Growing up, some of my fondest memories were made building with my dad. As an entrepreneur himself, my dad built cabins, homes, and small businesses and was involved every step of the way. Throughout the process, I was right by his side helping him demo, going over blueprints, listening in on his meetings with inspectors, and watching his dreams become realities. I believe my love for real estate coupled with my hard work ethic and superb communication skills will prove to serve me well in this industry. While purchasing land and homes can undoubtedly be overwhelming and intimidating, it is also rewarding and worthwhile! I will work tirelessly to find a property that best fits you, on a schedule that accommodates you. I am truly proud to be a part of the team at Grover and welcome you to give myself or any of our agents a call for a personable buying or selling experience!
Born and raised in Manistique, I have plenty of local knowledge to help assist you through your home or land purchase.

I have worked with clients to sell city homes, rural homes, waterfront property, vacant land, and I also have expertise in foreclosures.

The city life now behind me; My roots are firmly established here, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to help others in our great community.
My career in real estate started when I joined Grover Real Estate in May of 2000. First as a Real Estate Agent and then obtaining my Associate Broker License just 3 years later.

My broad real estate experience and knowledge of the market is what I will use to help guide you through the process.

Jim started with Grover Real Estate in 1999! As a former employee of the US Fish & Wildlife Service Jim brings vast knowledge of everything and anything outdoors. He has lived in Manistique since 1979 and has been a top agent at our office since he started his real estate career with over $100 million in sales in the past 21 years. Jim enjoys hunting and fishing and while he is mostly still “old school” he stays up to date on all the new listings in the area and is ready to see that you have all the information you need to feel comfortable buying or selling real estate.
Being born and raised in Manistique, the Upper Peninsula holds a special place in my life. I graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2019 with my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. Following college, I worked in retirement planning for over a year before deciding to move to the city down in Iowa. After only 5 months, I realized the U.P. is where I'm meant to be. I have local insight that will help guide you with your home buying/selling needs. I'm excited to represent Grover Real Estate in helping members of my community thrive.
As a 6th generation "Yooper", you can say I have a great love and appreciation for Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I was born in Manistique and grew up in Germfask. I know the area well and whether you're buying or selling, I'm dedicated to matching dreams to homes. With so many great properties, give me a call and let's get looking!
