As a listing agent in the Northern Michigan area’s of Bay Harbor, Charlevoix, Boyne City, Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Torch Lake, my extensive knowledge of the area and negotiating skills gives Sellers the opportunity to get the maximum value for their property. For Buyers, I will search until I find the perfect home and then negotiate the best possible deal.

A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there. It is about your life and dreams.

I have a love and appreciation for our Troops and Veterans. Being a supporter to organizations such as Toys for Tots and Tunnels2towers. Patriotism, national pride, and love of her country are some examples of her devotions. A lover of all things Michigan, I live in Downtown Charlevoix, with my husband Tavis, our Chihuahua’s Bear, Copper and Dachshund who wishes to remain anonymous (Minnie).

If you want to take care of your yard this summer, you need the right tools. But what, exactly, are those tools?

recent article from realtor.com outlined the key maintenance tools you’ll want to have on hand to keep your yard in tip-top shape this summer, including:

  • Pruning shears. Pruning shears are essentially yard scissors; they allow you to trim your plants and keep them healthy. If you want to meticulously maintain your yard, they’re an absolute must.
  • Dibber. If you’re planning on doing any planting this summer, a dibber — which creates holes in the ground, allowing you to more easily plant seeds or bulbs — is a tool you’ll definitely want to add to your collection.
  • Self-watering planter. In a perfect world, you’d be able to be home to water all your plants at the appropriate time of day. But if you’re busy, you may not be able to get outside and give your plants the water they need, which could lead to your plants dying. The good news is, you can avoid this issue by using self-watering planters, which will give your plants the water they need to thrive, even when you’re too busy to water them.
