About Me

Owner/Broker of Coldwell Banker Fairbairn Realty. I specialize in the Inland Waterway (Crooked, Pickerel, Burt, & Mullett Lakes), Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Indian River,and the surrounding communities of Northern Michigan. Second and vacation homes are a large part of my market. I am committed to providing the best possible service to both buyers and sellers that is possible in the real estate industry. As we have all heard for generations, Honesty is the Best Policy . That is my commitment to all of my customers. The Fairbairn family has been in Northern Michigan and in the plumbing, heating, and hardware business for over 118 years. Thus I have my plumbing, building, and engineering licenses, which come in very handy in the real estate business. At Coldwell Banker Fairbairn Realty we strive to give our buyers and sellers honest, trustworthy, and timely information regarding the local markets.
