Meet the Team
Mike - Mike Street began his real estate career in 1975, right here in beautiful Traverse City. During the past 40 years, Mike has represented well over 4,000 real estate transactions totaling more than $400 million in sales volume. He obtained his Associate Broker's License in 1980. In January 2006, Mike merged his own real estate brokerage, Mike Street & Company, with the #1 real estate company in northern Michigan, Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors.
"Street's Sugar Shack", Mike's farming property, is located about 2 miles east of Kingsley. Every early spring when the temperature starts to rise into the low 40's, he taps 225 trees to make delicious pure maple syrup. During the warm summer and fall months, Mike also maintains several hives of bees which produce raw wildflower honey. He enjoys farming his property as well, often planting grain crops. Mike enjoys being outdoors in various activities. He loves kayaking and canoeing, both in Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. During the winter months, he enjoys 'skijoring' (a cross between snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and dog-sledding) with his Siberian Husky, Cody. Along with Cody, Mike also enjoys taking hikes with his Weimereiner, Hank. As a homeowner on beautiful Long Lake, Mike also enjoys lakeside living and fun with his family. His wife, Jo, enjoys many activities including knitting and sewing. His two eldest sons, Chris and Justin, both enjoy playing hockey, hunting and traveling. Chris lives in Traverse City and co-owns Dave Harvey’s Athletic Supply (and maintains his real estate license); Justin lives in Traverse City as well and works banking.
