Joe Blachy has always had a PASSION for Condominium Design and Sales. Joe's expertise in Condos goes back to his career as Owner and General Manager of PUFF'S OF PETOSKEY which was a "Quality Design-Driven Store" offering everything for the interiors of homes and condos.

During a recent interview, Joe stated:

"For many years our primary business at PUFF'S OF PETOSKEY consisted of working with condominium developers and buyers of condos throughout Northern Michigan, and beyond, with a wide variety of services."

Joe has a proven success record in this business...
  • During a recent 13 month period, Joe produced 23% of all condominium sales by generating 12 transaction sides from the 52 total condo sales in the popular price point range of $15,000 to $600,000 in the Petoskey Schools area.

  • Over 250 other Realtors had the same opportunity to sell those condos in this area.

The following are some of the highlights of Joe's experience with condo design...
  1. Analyzed blue prints created by architectural firms, and structured suggested improvements in Floor plans, Kitchens, and Baths.

  2. At one point PUFF'S had 13 condo models in developments in Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, Crystal Mountain, Traverse City, Homestead of Glen Arbor, Shanty Creek, Harborage of Boyne City, Breakers East, Windward, Harbor Cove, Sunset Shores, Grand Traverse Resort, and many others throughout Northern Michigan.

  3. Provided complete interior furnishing packages, including furniture, kitchen, appliances, kitchen utensils, and linen packages.

  4. At one time PUFF'S furnished 96 units at the Grand Traverse Resort...all at one time!

  5. The first house ever completed in BAY HARBOR was developed, financed, designed and built...as a model-spec...by Joe Blachy.

As a Realtor, Joe Blachy has had much involvement with condos, including:
  1. Created the "Condo Development Concepts" for the beautiful Harbor Watch Condominium Project, which overlooks the bay in beautiful Petoskey. Joe arranged for the land-contract sale of the land and guided the developer with "critical key design elements" which were incorporated into the design of Harbor Watch which is, in our opinion, the best designed condo community in the Petoskey area.

  2. Developed an unused space in Harbor Watch into a residential condo.

  3. Created a business condo from a vacant (and unproductive for the owner) commercial office space and sold it to an end-user for $350,000!

  4. Listed, marketed, and sold many condos.
