Rick has been a lifelong enthusiast of New Buffalo and Harbor Country. After working 20+ years in the service industry in Chicago, he’s returned to his roots and is ready to show others why this is THE place to be. Rick was raised here, left to pursue and achieve a BA in Business Administration from Ferris State University, went to work in Chicago – then he and wife, Julie, saw the benefit of returning to the area to raise their young daughter in his hometown.
Rick’s love of boating on Lake Michigan has made him a knowledgeable resource along the shoreline from
Harbor Country, through Indiana and into Chicago. As an avid golfer, Rick can share all the golfing opportunities based on his experiences.
As Rick can attest - It doesn’t take long to feel the tug of Lake Michigan beckoning your return. Whether you want to spend a weekend or a lifetime – let Rick help you find your perfect retreat.

Testimonials "Over the last two years, we have had the privilege of working with Traci on three projects. From looking at dozens of properties to concentrating on site-specific projects, Traci's work ethic is a true example of what the bar should be set at. Living out of state and coming in on weekdays for just a few hours, or on weekends, Traci has always been flexible to our schedule. And no matter what information is needed for the deal to close, Traci has always volunteered to seek it out. In addition, Traci's vast network inand around Harbor Country has allowed us to establish good relationships with various local service providers. Thank you, Traci!"

"I want to let everyone know what an awesome experience I had working with Traci Lauricella. Over the past three years I have bought a house, sold that house and bought another all with the help of Traci. Traci is an extremely knowledgeable, hard-working agent who I would recommend to everyone- even my own family members! She is very efficient! She patiently and quickly answered all of my questions along the way. Working with Traci made the very stressful process of buying and selling my home(s) a wonderful experience." Sincerely, Carol Grandholm
As an agent who's an expert in Southwest Michigan, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information.
I have had a long career in Real Estate starting with success property development and Real Estate career in Atlanta where, I met my wonderful husband for 25+ years Chris. He grew up in Stevensville and spent his summers at Grand mere State Park. After deciding to make the move back to Michigan, we settled into Southwest Michigan Community Saint Joseph.
I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
