What clients say about Bay North Realty

We can honestly say that we've never met an individual like David in the Real Estate Business. He is Genuine. More than a Realtor/Broker, he was for us a highly talented and knowledgeable counselor of the area and inventory of homes for sale. David's persistent watch (like a hawk) was the reason for us finding the right home, and he found it before it went on the market. His ambition isn't turn a sale, it is to truly help someone find what they're looking for. Thank you David for being part of making our dreams come true. We look forward to working with you again in the future

Paul and Daphne Thompson

When we moved to Petoskey a year ago, colleagues recommended that we call David Shuman. What a great piece advice! He was always accommodating, more than willing to take us back multiple times to the same property, and we never felt pressured. David provided us with up to date data to help us make informed decisions, and ultimately purchase our perfect home in downtown Petoskey. We highly recommend working with David Shuman!

Brad & Dana Green

David's love for the area is obvious, and his connections put him in the know with every property. David was incredibly patient as we slowly narrowed in on the type of home and location we wanted. He is truly invested in his customers! When we settled on a property, the process was seamless and we joke that it felt like a breakup come closing day. Luckily, David and his wife Sarah have become friends and we recommend them in a heartbeat

Drs. Brian & Kathryn Hoyner

We worked with David for several months to find our new home in harbor springs. Once we found out the perfect property, David did the research so that we could make realistic offer that made sense for us. I appreciate true professionalism when I see it. David Shuman is genuinely one of the good guy in his field, he knows his business and makes things happen. Thank you, David, for a job well done.

Bob & Lisa Seitz

Our experience was seamless from listing through closing. David's integrity, honesty, and patience make him the best choice in choosing a realtor. We would highly recommend David to anyone in need of an excellent realtor!

Dr. John & Dina Panos

We worked with David for two-years while searching for our "dream cottage." David was so patient with our decision-making process - it was obvious his priority was to find the right place for us. David provided superior guidance on fair market value and was trustworthy and honest. We could not be happier with our home and highly recommend David to all!

Rich & Mary Ann Grosfield

David went above and beyond to sell our home. With his in-depth knowledge of the downtown market, he provided thoughtful guidance from pricing to preparing our house to sell. We had a strong offer within a week of listing! From beginning to end, David helped us make our dreams a reality.

Daniel & Megan Dewindt

We have bought and sold three homes with David. We are impressed with his extensive knowledge of the local area and the current real estate trends. David listens to our needs and develops a tailor-made plan for our family. His personal approach is the main reason we have and will continue turn to him for our real estate needs. We highly recommend David!

Dr. Joshua & Elsa Martin

I understand that in listing my home I was presenting David and Sarah with a unique challenge. I had already purchased a new property and as the Director of Charlevoix Circle of Arts I had limited time to focus on the sale of the home but letting go of the design process is not something I relish. When David and Sarah swept in, they came prepared with a strategy, staged and presented my home to maximize the effects of space and had a clear marketing plan. Their magic was evident as I was presented with two offers soon after the home was listed which allowed me to move into my forever home happily. They are grace, sophistication, and talent under pressure.

Gail Demeyere

our family recently relocated to Petoskey from California to be closer to family. Given we lived 3,000 miles away, we were looking at homes online and asking David lots and lots of questions. David was very accommodating. He shared local knowledge about homes, neighborhoods, family activities, and more. With David's help we found the perfect house for our family and we are excited for our new life here in Petoskey.
