Welcome to our web site. We are Chuck Smith and Sue Smith and have a total combined 23 years of experience selling real estate in Manistee County and the surrounding counties of Mason, Benzie, Wexford, Lake, Grand Traverse, and Oceana.    

Why are we active in Manistee real estate? Because we want to help guide people through the buying and selling process, avoiding pitfalls.   Our experience is more than being just REALTORS.  During our previous profession, we were relocated numerous times due to job transfers.  Having worked with many REALTORS, we gained an appreciation for how agents should conduct their business and we have applied that experience to dealing with our clients.  Key words are communication, honesty, integrity, knowledge of the market and no surprises!

Prices of property in the beautiful Victorian Port City of Manistee and the surrounding area are still very reasonable.  Manistee County offers sandy Lake Michigan beaches, numerous inland lakes and the Manistee River channel where you can watch huge freighters coming through. You can enjoy the many restaurants with outdoor dining overlooking the river and afterwards, walk the Riverwalk all the way to Lake Michigan and watch the spectacular sunsets over the lake. 

For outdoor enthusiasts, there is kayaking along the numerous rivers (Manistee River, Little Manistee River, Pine River and Bear Creek), plus boating (US Coast Guard Station located in Manistee), fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, golfing the many beautiful courses including renowned Arcadia Bluffs and skiing (Crystal Mountain Resort) are also among the many things to do near the Manistee National Forest.

We would love to help you find the perfect Manistee home or property in the surrounding area. 

Personal information:

Chuck graduated from Michigan Technological University as a Chemical Engineer and worked in the pulp and paper industry throughout the Midwest.  Sue owned and operated two retail businesses throughout the years.  A job brought us to Manistee but the friendliest people we have ever met and the beautiful area, convinced us to remain here.

I contacted Sue online for assistance finding me a cabin. She was fantastic to work with all the way through the process. No details were left uncovered. Sue clearly understands the buying process and protected me from potential pitfalls and helped me navigate a complicated lending experience. Sue comes highly recommended by me. Brian Coon


We had another broker that didn't work well for us and Sue sold our neighbor's property and was highly recommended by her.  When we met with Sue it was obvious she wanted to work with us and was a great fit in selling our property. Very happy we found her, just wish we would have found her first...thanks again to Sue and Chuck! We could talk, text or email them anytime we had a question, very helpful. She kept us informed about what was going on all the time and that was great since we were out of state most of the time. Sue worked very hard to get the best deal for us, several offers and counter offers, ended very well for both parties...great to work with, very easy to talk to and she really knows her stuff!!  Pete and Linda
