This is the second time we used David for a real estate transaction. David and his staff were very professional. David was there to help us make decisions by clearly explaining our options with sound advice. He made the whole process personal. We highly recommend Bay North Realty.
We have utilized Stephanie for our last three home purchases. She is diligent, responsive and
knowledgeable. If you are looking for a realtor that works hard, knows the market and the
area, and makes the experience smooth and simple, she is the one to choose.
Mark & Sarah LaBlance
Stephanie is knowledgeable, professional, enjoyable to work with, and a pleasure to be
around. Her knowledge of the area is impressive. She responded quickly to any questions and
was on top of things at all times. In this market, we couldn't have asked for a better person
to find a home that was perfect for us and do everything possible to make it happen. We
would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in northern Michigan!
Dave & Ann Marie Tingleff
David helped my husband and me with our house hunt remotely and helped us find a great place. He was always quick to respond to emails and texts and schedule virtual showings. In a hectic real estate market with low inventory, he made the process as stress free as possible!
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.
Mike & Lauren Scriven
Stephanie was wonderful! She was in constant communication with us and really got to know
our preferences. She was very honest with her opinions and assessments of properties as well.
We ended up with a beautiful home and she made it all so easy.

Having known Dave for 30 years I can attest to his leadership and personal drive. Dave is a native to the Petoskey area when my wife and I decided to buy a second home in Harbor Springs, we knew there was only one person to reach out to assist us.
Dave sent us the property the day it hit the market and got us in to see the property on the same day. We took Dave’s advice on the offer we should submit and it was accepted on the spot. The process of working with Dave and his team could not have been smoother. If you are looking for real estate in the North Bay Area, I strongly recommend you reach out to Dave and take advantage of his lifelong local knowledge of the area and the real estate market.
Kim expertise is knowing the area homes and the market pricing. She is a good marketer and outstanding listener. She helped us in selling a large and unique property which required a very special type of buyer. She was patient through a very lengthy and difficult negotiation process. The resultant sale met our expectations. I would use her expertise again.
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

Kimberly as a realtor and community member is so knowledgeable and has her finger on the pulse of our community. She is an invaluable resource, and I would encourage anyone who is looking to buy, sell or relocate to his area to talk to Kim about your residential or commercial property interests. Her knowledge of everything from local bank and credit union financing opportunities and interest rate on mortgages to good local schools with an intricate knowledge of what to do and what to see in our summer resort area of Northern Michigan. I can't say enough about how knowledgeable, friendly, and resourceful Kim Kihnke is.
