WELCOME!

–FROM MICHIGAN LIFESTYLE PROPERTIES! More people these days are searching for an ideal place to relocate for reasons of lifestyle. Whether their search is for a primary home, a vacation property, or a place for future retirement, they’re looking for a slower pace and a close knit community, not too far from where they currently live, that offers an appealing mix of recreational and cultural activities. For anyone on such a search, an ideal place to call home is West Michigan, which offers an appealing lifestyle and tremendous natural resources. David S. Kreager, CFP©, ABR Broker/Owner 269-352-1381 dkreager@uclaketolake.com

We are proud to present our inventory of real estate for sale on the following pages. You’ll find lake homes and cottages, Great Lakes properties, country and log homes, equine and historic properties, and many others. For buyers of these or any other lifestyle property type, be sure to visit MichiganLifestyleProperties.com, the only suite of websites of its kind that enables buyers to easily search by property type. If you’re on such a search, no doubt you’ll appreciate this valuable resource.

If you’re selling, keep in mind that the buyer of your special property may quite possibly come from out-of-town, and may not even be looking in the area where your property is located. So it’s important to choose a company to sell your property that advertises nationally, and makes it easy for your property to be found. Remember, it takes more than a sign in the yard and a local MLS listing to sell a property. With offices in South Haven, in Van Buren County, Richland (near Gull Lake), in Kalamazoo County, and agents in Canadian Lakes and Zeeland, we are ready to serve the needs of buyers and sellers of any type of real estate. Thank you for picking up our catalog and please call if we can help in your next real estate transaction!
