"Brook has an advantage in Northern Michigan real estate, he knows a lot of home owners with high end properties, as well as mid range properties. With his wife Rachel, they own and operate a very successful property rental business, of which I was a customer. When I was ready to sell, Brook found a buyer and sold my property at asking price, because he knew who to call. That's his advantage, knowing the area, networking, and knowing other owners, and those who rent looking to own. If you are looking to buy or sell, you will do well with Brook" - Howard Ice

Deer Lake is a moderately sized kettle lake located in south-central Charlevoix County. High hills stand between the lake and Boyne City to the north, Boyne Falls to the east, and East Jordan to the west. Deer Lake sits at the headwaters of Deer Creek, which is a major tributary of the Jordan River.
