About

The story

The vision of The Difference Real Estate started 14 years ago when a young man named Rick Matley set out on a long journey from an aspiring Engineer in Traverse City Michigan to a Real Estate Broker today. The trip included multiple stops in Northwestern Michigan manufacturing economy and then the shrinkage of Engineering positions, as a result of the Manufacturing bust!

There is a difference in the world and The Difference Real Estate quietly makes the difference in many lives every year.

Clients love us

This is the second home that Rick has sold for me. He is honest, quick to respond, makes things easy to understand and gets the job done! He is highly recommended. If I ever need a realtor again I know who I’m calling. Thank you Rick for making the entire process so easy and walking us through every step.
