Tom Wiltse is a longtime resident of the Elk Rapids area, having moved to the area with his wife Susan in 1969. Both are graduates of Albion College. Tom taught science at Elk Rapids Schools for 30 years, retiring in 1999. Susan is also retired from teaching, after a 30 year career in early grades at Lakeland Elementary in Elk Rapids. She is currently operating the family self storage business, Pad Lock Storage, with 3 locations in Elk Rapids. The family also owns and operates a small manufacturing business in Elk Rapids, Paddlebuoy, manufacturing and selling paddleboards, since 1974.
Tom Wiltse has been an active Realtor since 2000, and has worked extensively with banks and asset management companies with bank-owned listings and sales since 2005. In addition to this specialized area of real estate, Tom and his team are quite active in the listing and sales of "fair market" residential, lakefront, and second home properties. With the able support of his competent staff, Tom is able to cover a wide range of the real estate market in the north. Although the office is in Elk Rapids, the team handles listings and sales in at least seven counties, including Antrim, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Wexford, Charlevoix, and Kalkaska counties. Tom does not warehouse his listings. Pricing is an art that experience has helped to perfect. He has one of the shortest "Days on Market" averages in the region, and has sold more of his listings in the last 4 years than any other Antrim county agent. Properties listed at the right price make both buyers and sellers happy. Call Tom Wiltse.

I have had the pleasure of living in the Grand Traverse area my entire
life. Once a summer destination, now I call it home. Prior to real estate, I had the opportunity to work in the field of sports recreation. This position combined several of my favorite things; community, people and making an impact. Whether I am enjoying a game of golf on one of our pristine courses, sampling the cuisine of locale fare or driving along the lakeshore, immersing myself in Northern Michigan culture is my inspiration.
One of the things I enjoy most about being a REALTOR, is helping people on
their journey to find their perfect home, tranquil vacation retreat or business
venture. In my eyes, these are all key to creating a vibrant community. I have an extensive background in marketing and social media, which allows me to give your listing the personal attention and more importantly, the exposure it needs to stand out and find the right buyer. I look forward to helping you find the right house, that you can make your HOME!

Originally from Elk Rapids, I moved 'home' from Chicago in 2011 after 12 years in the Windy City. My current career in real estate sales stemmed from my career in property management while in Chicago. My experience managing condo and apartment buildings helped me realized how much I enjoyed finding people the right home for them. I find it extremely rewarding to help people find the right fit for their next home.
