About Us


About Pat O’Brien and Associates

Relax—you’re with friends.

When we imagine northern Michigan, we picture calm sunsets on the horizon across Lake Charlevoix. We can hear the canon sounding when the Ramblers score a touchdown on a brisk Friday night. We see snow blanketing Boyne Mountain for fresh skiing right up to the cabin doorstep. We imagine your future hometown.

Our experienced and talented team of Realtors know and take pride in this town. Just this last year, the team at Pat O'Brien and Associates were able to spend some time with a few sweet pups at the Charlevoix County Humane Society and acknowledge the remarkable volunteers at the Good Neighbors Food Pantry (two of the many very deserving organizations our agents have enthusiastically supported throughout the years).

We have a great love for Michigan's major cities—Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Traverse City— but we know that the cities and villages of Charlevoix County also have a great deal to offer. Our historic landmarks such as the Dilworth Hotel and Boyne River Inn in Boyne City, rich resources like East Jordan’s Jordan Valley, with 18,000 square miles of public land, Charlevoix’s famous Venetian Festival, Ironton’s Ironton Ferry, Boyne Falls’ sprawling year-round resort, the glorious Boyne Mountain—a big city can't compete with these iconic areas. So grab an ice cream cone and walk down these local streets to Lake Charlevoix and to watch the boats and famous northern Michigan sunsets. They’re all here waiting for you to enjoy! 

We do real estate, and we are very lucky to do it here in northern Michigan. We will work tirelessly to add your listing to our extensive Realtor network, as well as a plethora of popular sites including Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com. Our Realtors will work diligently to help you find your new home or Lake Charlevoix land. We also offer listings on several other northern Michigan bodies of water that hold a special place in the hearts of many locals and visitors alike, including Walloon Lake, Boyne River, and more. Pat O’Brien and Associates understand the real estate industry and can answer all the real estate questions you may have, whether you're looking for lakefront properties for sale on Lake Charlevoix or any other waterfront properties. We know how important and life-changing the act of selling or buying a home can be, and we don't take that for granted.
