In 1971, my folks (John & Lucie Detrick) decided to move to Duluth, where they started Detrick Realty.  Eventually their love of the north shore drew them to relocate to Grand Marais.  For my brother Dean and I, Grand Marais was a great place to live.  We were raised in the business and we learned a lot about the value of honesty and integrity in Real Estate and life.  Good lessons! 

After high school, I joined the MN National Guard and went to St. Cloud State University because they had the only accredited Real Estate program in the state.  In 1991, Dad got sick and it was time for me to move back north and take over the business.  It was a little scary!!!  My husband and I have been lucky to raise our two beautiful daughters in a very supportive, child friendly community.  

In the past 25 years, we have seen a lot of changes in the real estate market, both good and bad, but the one constant has been that we have been blessed to work with many wonderful buyers and sellers.  Our customers have been supportive and enabled us to consistently be one of the top producing companies in Cook County - we are forever grateful.  Whether you are looking to buy or sell, give us a call and we are happy to make your dreams a reality.  THANK YOU!

Bob Carter entered the real estate business in Cook County shortly after he moved here in December of 1998 and has consistently been one of the top agents in the county ever since.  The reason for this, his clients say, is his attention to detail and his low key approach.  Bob has been very active in community affairs over the years as evidenced by his volunteering for WTIP-FM, the Cook County Booster Club, and the Grand Marais Congregational-United Church of Christ, as well as many other community organizations.  Bob and his wife Helen enjoy biking, golf, hiking and travel as well as their blended family of two daughters, two sons and eleven grandchildren.

Born in Chicago Illinois, Harry enjoyed family summer vacations in northern Minnesota before moving to the North Shore in 1956. The family then moved to the Iron Range where he graduated in Aurora before going to the University of Minnesota, main campus. Following graduation, he taught high school English in addition to being a ski and drama coach. During the same decade plus of time, Harry also worked for a number of Boy Scout Councils on the program staff, as Camp Director, and developer of leadership, aquatics, and conservation training programs.

Combined, these experiences led Harry to form Pigeon River Expeditions, the first outfitter-guide to operate under a Special Use Permit in the Boundary Waters. From this, Harry drew material and inspiration for a series of books on wilderness recreation, the first of these being The Spirit of Canoe Camping. He has also authored a book on log cabins and some local history. Harry knows and loves northern Minnesota. As a Certified Home Inspector he also knows and understands houses, adding to his value serving the needs of real estate clients.
