Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Boyne City, MI.
A honest,hard working Real Estate Professional. Have had a number of real estate transactions with him;always hard working and helpful. Gary also handled all closing duties with the title company associated with a Condo I purchased and all elements of the proceedings ran smoothly. Would highly recommend utilizing Gary in any real estate activity as he can be fully trusted to represent you. with the highest level of trust and confidence. Gary has also been in the real estate business here in Boyne City for many years(I think over twenty) and is involved with a number of local charities and fund raising activities. This I believe ,further attests to his honest work ethic and desire to contribute to his local comminity....and make a difference in the lives of local residents with financial issues. Any future real estate purchase I may become involved in would be handled by Gary based on all my past experiences with him
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Charlevoix, MI.
Gary put up with more craziness, hiccups, and insanity than anyone should ever have been expected to deal with and he did it with a smile and with unsurpassed professionalism.
In the end, I found I had a new friend.
We started looking for property August 2012 and, had to postpone for a few months due to time constraints as the Christmas season approached.
Right before Christmas, one of our clients decided they wanted to reduce our services to the point that we had to have our property pretty much right now, so the "emergency search" began. We looked at DOZENS of properties but just couldn't seem to find anything that was going to work for our needs.
Finally, in March, we found a piece and made an offer that was accepted. After the home inspection came back with black mold, we offered a lower price for obvious reasons at which point, the listing agent essentially pushed us out of the game altogether after much correspondence and deadlines not being met on the listing agent's end.
We made an offer on another piece of property and within a few weeks, were informed by family there was another, more suitable property not listed. After speaking with the landowner, we determined to drop our second offer and put one in on this latest piece.
Gary helped us put the contract together and I am now a proud owner of a 20 acre farm closer to work and family.
There was a whole lot of hiccups at the bank as well and it was generally speaking, a nightmare to deal with. It was 12 months before we had our new farm and I could not have done it without Gary's help.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Byron Center, MI.
Gary's caring and professional manner was much appreciated during the process of selling our home and relocation. He took excellent care of our property and provided us with helpful information to enhance showings for perspective buyers. An inherently stressful process was made much more comfortable during the selling and closing stages because of Gary's knowledge and expertise. I highly recommend Gary Deters to anyone who desires a positive outcome on the sale of their home. He is an exceptional realtor.
Gary Deters embraces professionalism but also a warm and personal approach to his clients. He was prompt with responses to questions, paper work, and the art of closing the deal. His knowledge of the Boyne City, Michigan area, including most of northern lower Michigan, is extensive. He is an active member of both the business community and the social aspect of his home city. We were so lucky to have engaged him to find us a lake property, and he came through with flying colors! Thanks, Gary and all the staff!
Highly recommend Gary!
We will continue to use him for any of our real estate needs, plus refer him to friends. Excellent excellent responsiveness, and very knowledgeable about the local market. We actually have a lot and home listed with him. Lot sold within 3 months. Gary perseveres and will exceed your expectations ..... definitely worth your time to contact him.
Gary Deters was my selling and listing agent for our purchase and sale of our Boyne City house and the purchase of our house in Charlevoix. He truly took the time to match us to the right house! He was honest, informed and professional. He helped us to understand the entire process and helped us to get the best price both in purchasing and selling.
