Big Lake Real Estate

Big Lake Real Estate is a new Upper Peninsula of Michigan company with some familiar faces. Jan Carol Ogden and Nicole Darrow have a combined 27 years of real estate experience in Michigan's beautiful upper peninsula. Both lovingly call Grand Marais "home"

Jan Carol Ogden

Jan Carol has been assisting clients with buying and selling real estate in Grand Marais for 25 years. What started out as a "job" turned into a career and a true desire to help people find the property that fits them best. "People have to love where they live. I want to provide that experience to all of my clients."

Nicole Darrow

Nicole Darrow is an associate broker who got the real estate bug while working as a vacation rental manager in Grand Marais. "I started and still operate a vacation rental management company and adding the real estate to my resume was a natural progression. My rental guests are often looking for Upper Peninsula real estate while they're here on vacation; now I can help them with both."
