There are certain qualities you need to look for in a real estate agent, especially if you want to buy a real estate property in Glen Arbor. Interviewing your prospects is usually a good idea, but finding the right real estate agent is easier said than done.

In order to choose the best agent for your real estate needs, you need to consider factors like how long they have been licensed and how many deals they have closed.

Experience matters, especially when it comes to real estate. You want a buyer’s agent who is familiar with the ins and outs of the industry, so they can give you proper advice throughout the process. Whether you are buying or selling a property in Glen Arbor, they can walk you through it and help you handle any problem that you may encounter along the way.

When it comes to real estate properties in Glen Arbor, it pays to have a real estate agent who is really familiar with the area. Your agent should know the area well enough to give you the answers for some of your most important questions. They need to know about nearby school districts, universities, shopping centers, hospitals, etc. This could make a big difference in your decision-making process as you look for a property to buy. The more information you can get, the better.

Ideally, you want a real estate agent who is active in the industry. Ask them about how many transactions they have done so far within the year. Although the actual number doesn’t matter, you can get an idea of how well they are doing at keeping their business consistent.

Finally, you need a real estate agent who is available when you need them. Agents need to be available during business hours to manage the logistics of your real estate transaction. Real estate is a tough business when it comes to the hours. Most of the time, agents also have to be available after work hours to meet with clients. A good agent will make sure they are available when you need them so they can handle problems that may arise during the transaction.

Don’t just take your agent’s word for it. You can easily find testimonials online from clients they have worked with in the past. This is one of your most reliable sources of information when it comes to real estate agents.

Public Beaches:


Esch Road beach

AKA Otter Creek Beach, this beach is located near the mouth of Otter Creek, which slowly flows into Lake Michigan. The shallow water of the river is great for children who like to splash and great for little adventurers who decide to dive over the river into the bowels of the forest. Find enough sand to park the cooler and beach chairs. From the Empire, take the M-22 south and turn right onto Esch Road. Unpaved parking lot, basic civic amenities. The road to Esche will be closed for a time this summer, although the construction is expected to be ready for the “peak of summer”. Beach residents are advised to look for alternative beaches during construction.

Esch Rd


Peterson Road Beach

Peterson Road Beach, separating Esch Road and Flat River Point, offers plenty of sand, a beach grass deck and plenty of poor space. Just east of Platte River Campground, turn off the M-22 onto the unpaved (and narrow) Peterson Road and follow it to Lake Michigan. Uncrowded parking, basic equipment, a short walk to the beach.

Peterson Rd


Platte River Point Beach

Discover this beauty on the way from Platte River Campground to the Platte Estuary. This destination line for tubers and rowers Flat River means a busy parking lot, but you are close to swimming in a shallow river or swimming in Lake Michigan. Ideal for kids and watching Empire Bluffs is definitely not painful. Take Lake Michigan Road from the M-22 to Platte Lake; goes straight to Lake Michigan. Guarded parking, picnic tables, basic equipment.

Platte River Point


Tiesma Road beach

If you are looking for yourself, follow Tiesma. The coast lies along the same coast as Platte River Point and Peterson Road, but is unmarked and under radar. From Platte River Campground, head north on Lake Michigan Road, turn right onto Isle View Drive, and drive until the trail ends. A short walk to the beach through the soft sand. No civic amenities, dirty parking on the street.
