For as long as she can remember, Kathy Wittbrodt has been in love with northern Michigan.  In 1998, this successful downstate Realtor and her family packed their household and moved north to Elk Rapids, excited and eager to live the life we all dream of.

Kathy M. Wittbrodt Realtor

Immersing herself in the region’s culture and activities, Kathy soon made a name for herself as a champion of all things Elk Rapids.  When she opened her office downtown, her natural enthusiasm for the community, creative visions for living, and tireless dedication to matching clients with just the right place made her a favorite area real estate specialist.

Kathy has been a full time realtor since obtaining her license in 1989, as well as her Broker’s license when she opened her Elk Rapids office in 1998.  Kathy has also expanded her knowledge base with continued educational curriculum, earning designations such as the GRI (Graduate Real Estate Institute, GRI, II, and III), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and RSPS (Resort and Second Home Property Specaialist).  Additionally, she was one of the first in the state of Michigan to earn her GREEN National Association of Realtors Designation, traveling to both Chicago and Sarasota for completion.

With extensive networking in the Realtor community, she is highly respected by her peers for her knowledge, experience, and cooperation.  Kathy always conducts herself and her business with the utmost in professional ethics, standards, and practices. In 2011, she was elected by her fellow Realtors to the Traverse Area Association of Realtors (TAAR) Board of Directors for the five-county area, and re-elected for a second term in 2014. In 2014 she was voted the Best Realtor in Antrim County in the Northern Express Reader's Choice.

A top sales producer beginning with her very first year in business, she repeatedly places in the top 20 out of a field of 700 Realtors!  Her geographic sales area encompasses almost as much water as actual land, and it is therefore only natural that she has become a recognized leader in waterfront property sales – both as a premier listing agent, as well as a sought after agent for buyers.  Buyers and sellers benefit greatly not only from Kathy's extensive knowledge of the market, but also her outstanding reputation!
