Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

I have been a real estate investor for 20 years and a Realtor® as well, providing buyers and sellers with premier waterfront homes, cottages, vacant-land and commercial properties primarily in Leelanau County.  

I tend to go against the mainstream where grabbing as many listings as possible is the goal—I prefer to represent only a select number of client's each year—offering you, the client, an immeasurable amount of attention and knowledge to help you achieve your real estate goal most efficiently.

I personally back up every deal with decades of real estate experience in sales, investment, development & management to serve my client's (Buyer, or Seller) better. When you work with me, you actually get me. So, whether you will be starting your Leelanau legacy or selling real estate in this most spectacular area, I know how to place myself in your shoes and make things happen to your advantage—consider me your personal rainmaker!

Please remember; I abide by a code of ethics as a Realtor and that is very important to me. So whether I am representing a Buyer or a Seller, I will uphold my fiduciary responsibility to you, from our introduction right through to the closing & beyond. I will cover this aspect in detail with you.

I hope you will allow me the honor of becoming your Realtor. I will make certain that you achieve your real estate goals and receive the personal attention you deserve along the way. Let's talk soon.

Ratings & Reviews

Working with Tom Alflen on finding and purchasing a vacation property on Lake Leelanau was nothing short of exceptional! We reside out of state (Illinois) and there is a tremendous trust factor in place when deciding on such a major investment. Working with someone who knows your interests well and can give sound advice in the decision making process certainly lessens the stress. Tom did such an awesome job from the property search to the closing. He made himself available to meet with contractors or inspectors and had solid recommendations as to who to contact locally for various services. We were so fortunate to be referred to Tom and we are confident that anyone he works with will have the same great experience that we did!

Tom is a true professional. A great communicator. He made our home buying experience less cumbersome. As a buyers agent, he worked really hard to get the best deal for his client. Very highly recommended

Above and beyond his primary job responsibilities. Cared that we made the right decision. Honest, straightforward and trustworthy. Continued to help well after papers signed, sealed and delivered. Great guy in the know and to know.
