About JP!

JP Gerster

JP Gerster's family first moved to Walloon Lake more than 30 years ago.  His father, Jon, fell in love with northern Michigan and passed that passion on to JP at an early age. Over the years his family moved throughout the Midwest but always found their way back to Walloon Lake in the summers.  

After graduating from Western Michigan with a BS in business, JP started an 18-year career in Retained Executive Search, doing business from Chicago to San Francisco, and finally Ann Arbor. His ability to find top executive talent was highly sought after by Fortune 500 companies throughout the country. Corporate clients valued his understanding of the market and ability to deliver the hard-to-find talent.  

JP has since transitioned that hard-charging approach to real estate. Finding the right buyer and the right house is a proactive, outbound process he is dedicated to delivering. Taking the time to really understand his clients needs and then meeting those needs is his number one priority.

JP's wife Mallory is a Boyne City native and was extremely excited to get back to this incredible place. JP and Mallory have three young children – 6 and under! – and are so glad to be raising them here in northern Michigan. Their family enjoys the wonders of this area, especially spending time on Walloon Lake and Lake Charlevoix. JP's great passion, outside his family, is spending time on the trout streams throughout northern Michigan. He says that fly-fishing amongst the great cedar forests revitalizes the mind and body.  In the winter he and Mallory enjoy skiing at Boyne Mountain, and look forward to seeing their children zip by them on the slopes someday.
