Shine a Spotlight on Your Community Icons

There are a couple of days each year that the sun rises right through the middle of the Ore Dock

Promoting unusual or iconic features of your community is a great way to make your Agent Insight pages fuller and more interesting. Whether you choose something historical or a recent area addition, you can make a great little article with some fine photos to draw the eyes of potential clients.

Sindy Jensen

Sindy Jensen, an agent with RE/MAX 1st Realty in Marquette, MI, has created an excellent photo study of one of her town’s iconic landmarks, the ore docks on Lake Superior. Located near downtown Marquette, the Lower Harbor Ore Dock is a huge concrete and steel structure built in the late 1800’s. It is a remnant from the city’s past as one of the largest iron ore shipping docks in the country. Another dock, located a little further down the shoreline, is still in use today and loads about 9.5 to 10 million tons of ore annually.

Sindy focused on the docks for her Agent Insight Marquette page because they are such unique features of her town. She says many people are drawn to them because they are so unusual.

“I love taking pictures of the docks which are part of our town’s heritage,” Sindy said.  “I’ve gotten several client leads from Agent Insight. I love photography and it is such a great place post my pictures”

Sindy has been contributing to Agent Insight since she joined her office nearly nine years ago. She currently has almost 250 posts covering a wide range of subjects including the natural beauty of the area, holidays, wildlife, artwork, historical homes, seasons, restaurants,  and more.  The ore dock photos here are just three of several she has posted showing them from different angles, seasons, and times of day.

Several of Sindy’s photos have been featured on Insight Insider as well. Take inspiration from her and showcase pictures and articles about the wonderful icons from your community.

Woods Chapel Price Chopper Has Great Customer Service


he Price Chopper at Woods Chapel and 291 Hwy are not only convenient for anyone close to Lakewood or Northeast Lee’s Summit, but the customer service is always outstanding.
Each employee, whether in produce, cashier, meat department, manager, or even the Pharmacy, has always gone above and beyond for me and other customers. The pharmacist, Bobette, made sure to get my prescription transferred quickly and was able to assist me with much care, as she knew I was not feeling well. The manager has always assisted me with what I need and even ordered items that they did not carry, that I desired. I highly recommend this Price Chopper over any other grocery shopping experience for the convenience, friendliness and care that they provide their customers every day.

Spring Is Springing – Finally!


am not sure how to picture this for you, so I will use my words. Winter wasn’t awful this year as far as cold and blizzards. It was dark and hard for the skiers to find enough snow. The cloudy days seemed to hang around without producing anything to “play” in. That is why these recent sunny days have been amazing! That is what a photo cannot quite capture. Our famous sunsets are glorious. The blue sky is amazing and reflecting on the open waters of the Little Traverse Bay. Soon we will be identifying wild flowers and seeking the elusive morel mushrooms. (Boyne City National Morel Mushroom Festival, May 16-19, 2024: make your reservations today!) All in all, Springtime in the Petoskey area is lovely. Seriously! No mosquitoes yet, so hiking and camping can begin. The chilly nights are great for campfires, marshmallows and storytime. I am watching the trees outside of my window put on their first, fragile buds. Time for a walk! The Little Traverse Wheelway, down at the Petoskey waterfront park is a perfect place. I hope you enjoy all that the Petoskey area has to offer, regardless of the season.
