Top 5 Questions Your Michigan Luxury Lakefront Realtor Should Ask

Are you seeking more than just an amazing lakefront home? For instance do you want to be near the bike trails, or ski hills, or have a permanent dock for your yacht on Lake Charlevoix? The lifestyle is part of what you are buying when you purchase a lakefront home. Is your Northern Michigan real estate broker asking you these questions? Or are they just showing you the most expensive homes without asking about what YOU WANT?

An interview with your broker in which they are interested and ask about your wants, needs, and lifestyle should be a part of your initial meeting. A big part of my job as a luxury lake real estate broker is to discern what my client needs.

Here are the Top 5 Questions your Luxury Realtor should ask:

  1. What is your favorite indoor hobby?

  2. What is your favorite outdoor hobby?

  3. How often will you be in your Michigan cottage?

  4. What is your favorite local restaurant?

  5. Do you host many guests?

If your realtor isn’t asking you these questions they have no idea what it is you are looking for or need. I will always interview my clients so that I have a clear picture of what their wants and expectations are. Please, consider what your goals are with me and we can key in on only properties that fit your needs.
