Steve Bruggeman -
Broker, Realtor®, CRS, GRI
Steve, owner/broker of Oak Realty, joined his father in the family business in 1986. In 2000, he took over the company and today is the backbone of what he says is the “best team of Realtors® around.” He says Oak separates itself from others by an unmatched strength in niche marketing. “We have a limited number of agents that are specialists in an area they truly love, many have spent most or all of their lives living in Annandale.”
He is proud of Oak’s strong philosophy of quality customer service, and the focus the company maintains on accurately understanding client needs and working together as a team. Paying attention to detail and getting the right information is the key to building successful personal relationships with clients and finding them the right property, he says. Steve moved to Annandale at the age of 11, and grew up on Pleasant Lake where he resides today with his wife Kelly. He is a motorcycle enthusiast and enjoys traveling with his family and skipping rocks on the shore.
He is a past president of the Lions Club and Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the Pleasant Lake Association. Like Don, his favorite time of year in Annandale is the 4th of July. He says the best parts of his job have been taking over the family business, showing others the area and lakes, and enjoying the atmosphere created by the people who work at Oak.
Steve specializes in investment properties and high-end vacation homes, and says he is a big believer in Annandale, “It’s a great place to invest in.”
