Northern Properties has been doing business for 28 years! The business was started by Joe & Sue Viilo and was originally called Drummond Island Rentals. Joe & Sue ran the business out of their home until 2000, at which time they moved to Wazz's Plaza and changed the name to Northern Properties. In 2003 it was sold to Mike & Amy Bailey, who purchased the building on m-134 which is our current location. Mike and Amy hired me (Nicole Ellis) in 2011 to manage NP for them, and my husband Andy and I bought the business from them in 2016. During the time I was managing it I knew It was something I wanted to continue doing, so when it was offered to us there was no question that we wanted it. We love to see people happy, and it is our priority to make sure that happens! We have not only developed close relationships with our homeowners, but our guests as well, and we look forward to seeing them every year! We like to think of our homeowners & our guests as our NP family!
