Nathan Helms Your Up North Realtor

Nathan Helms - Our Hunting and Fishing Realtor

Nathan is originally from Chicago.  Before Nathan and his wife Lindsay—a Glen Arbor Native—moved to Benzie County, he spent 10 years out West.  During this time, he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Ecology, with a minor in Chemistry.  Upon graduation, he immediately began managing complex projects in the field of natural resources.  He is an Ecologist by trade, but a real estate professional by choice!  

An immediately recognizable characteristic of Nathan’s is that he is exceptionally industrious; and in addition to real estate, Nathan is also our lead Botanist at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.  Since his arrival, he has proven to be a vital resource to our local communities!  Please do not hesitate to contact him.  Nathan is very articulate, and a brilliant negotiator.  He is especially detail-oriented, and excels at educating his clients throughout the entire process.  He will not promise unrealistic goals, and it is always his objective to provide you with the best experience. 

In Nathan’s free time, he enjoys all outdoor activities—especially hunting and fishing.  He is a talented fisherman, and is very knowledgeable about our local lakes.  Furthermore, he is a very passionate white-tail hunter.  If you’ve chosen Nathan as your agent, or happen to run into him at one of our local establishments, you’ll have the opportunity to exponentially increase your knowledge of the area’s fishing and hunting opportunities.  Call him today! Your endless vacation starts here.
