Welcome to the newest member of the Mackinac Properties Team!

Chris Ritchie brings 22 years of professional experience in many facets of business.  In 2006 Chris earned his Arizona real estate license and worked alongside Robert Joffe of the Joffe Group, Launch Real Estate.  Chris was mentored by Robert, who was recognized by the Wall Street Journal as one of the leading Realtors in the nation for nine years.  What Chris learned from working as Robert’s lead agent was invaluable to this day.  

 After ten years of selling real estate full time, Chris seized an opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream of learning how to build and restore wooden boats.  Chris and his dog Gracie moved to Cedarville Michigan to enroll at the Great Lakes Boat Building School. During his time in Cedarville, Chris fell in love with the area and the people of the Les Cheneaux Islands – determining to make Les Cheneaux his new home.   

Upon graduating from the Great Lakes Boat Building School, Chris earned his Captain’s License and started a wooden boat touring company called Whiskey Plank Tours.  During his cruises throughout the islands, the discussion of real estate would always come up and naturally, in the spring of 2019, Chris successfully earned his Michigan real estate license.  

Chris lives in Cedarville full time and will focus his efforts on supporting the Les Cheneaux Islands area home buyers and sellers.  He is devoted to helping homeowners buy and sell their homes as well as promoting the Les Cheneaux lifestyle. Chris’s previous realtor experience in Arizona taught him how to identify and create new opportunities, regardless of market conditions.  His buying and selling strategies have been tested and proven through his success as an investor, an individual agent and team leader.
