    Nestled into the southwest corner of Michigan, hugging the shores of the greatest of the Great Lakes (Lake Michigan, naturally!) you will find one of the finest stretches of land in all the nation. We call it Michigan's Great Southwest...with the emphasis on Great.

    Saint Joseph North Pier lighthouse

    Sitting astride I-94 (affectionately and aptly nicknamed Main Street USA) our communities have almost anything you could ask for, from urban chic to country casual. Residents and visitors alike have a broad selection of housing from tree lined streets with back fence conversations to vast acreages with room to "grow your own." There are right on the beach options and quiet cul-de-sac opportunities alike.

    Boy playing trombone‚ÄčFrom Public Art Displays in St. Joseph to the Benton Harbor Arts District...from our Symphony Orchestra to our world-renowned beaches, piers and lighthouses...Michigan's Great Southwest truly has something for everybody.

    Award winning schools, community colleges, major universities, and industries that run from manufacturing to tourism, from agricultural to service-based...we've got your corner of Michigan ready to go.
