Lee Aldrich

About Me:  I live near Alma with my wife of nearly forty years Janah who is an employee of the Alma Public Schools and is an organist at Zion Lutheran Church in Mt Pleasant.  As empty nesters, we share our home with our canine family Dottie who seems to think that she actually owns the place. We look forward to visits with our children who reside in Wyoming and California..

I am a licensed  Associate Broker and  have held a Residential Builders license  for about twenty years.  As a landlord, I fully understand the pro’s and con’s of real estate investing.

I have a wide variety of interests but never seem to find time to enjoy all of them.  I love the outdoors and fall is unquestionably my favorite time of year.  My undergrad degree is in Business Management and I still hold a Residential Builders License.  Community work as Chair on a local Board of Review  provides me with additional training and experience that can assist my clients with tax appeals.

Let me demonstrate for you the advantages of having a skillful and experienced Broker representing your real estate interests.
