Making Cottage Memories
Pat Leavy has been helping Southeast Michigan families create memories in beautiful Northern Michigan for over 14 years. With boundless energy, perseverance, humor, dogged persistence, and a great staff, Pat works harder than any other agent to achieve his client’s goals.  He has sold over $120 million of estate quality homes in just the last three years.

Pat believes buying a home in northwest Michigan is more than square footage and a floor plan. With its blue lakes, miles of shoreline, fresh air, rolling hills, undisturbed woods, vibrant towns, and friendly people, it’s an extraordinary opportunity to experience and share a real treasure. Clearly, it is Pat’s enthusiasm for the area’s lifestyle that translates into results for you, whether you are a buyer or a seller.

As your Buyer's Representative, Pat can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. He can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. He'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.  Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then he'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms.

Pat would consider it a privilege to work with you.  Call him today to begin your search for your vacation home or vacation rental.

The Petoskey Area is a Michigan Treasure
Ready for a vacation with more to do than hit the beach? Then come visit what has been called a Michigan treasure: the Petoskey area of northern Michigan.

Whether you like strolling the soft sand looking for Petoskey stones, diving into crystal-clear Lake Charlevoix, or catching a million-dollar sunset over the lake, this is the place to be. But what makes the Petoskey Area even more special is all there is to do when the beach towel has been put away. Our resort communities of Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Bay Harbor, Boyne City, Alanson, and Walloon Lake offer a whole vacation full of things to do.

Awesome Shopping and Dining
Charming shops and restaurants help visitors remember why vacation is so much fun. You’ll find dozens of unique stores to browse, and there are dining options to satisfy most any foodie.

Victorian Charm 
The Bay View Association, with its nearly 500 Victorian structures, has earned the designation of National Historic Landmark. A summer lineup of concerts, lectures, and classes adds to its appeal. 

Hiking and Biking
The Petoskey area is home to some of the most beautiful hiking and biking trails imaginable, some of which hug the shoreline and offer incredible views.

World-Class Golf
Take your pick from more than a dozen courses, from nationally rated layouts to economical options. Their beauty and quality is often written about in the likes of Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. 

The Petoskey area’s wineries may be small, but they have a lot of heart and personality. Ten locations combine to create the Bay View Wine Trail. Sip, sample, and maybe take in a Wine & Paint session amongst the beautiful scenery.

Stay Awhile
Choose from quaint country inns, luxurious condominiums, and modern full-service hotels. For more information or lodging help, call our Visitors Bureau at 800-845-2828, or visit PetoskeyArea.com.
