Coldwell Banker Fairbairn Realty was founded in the summer of 2008 by Paul Fairbairn Broker/Owner. Within the first year of operation, Fairbairn Realty received the Coldwell Banker Premier Office award, the highest honor given to a Coldwell Banker office.

Coldwell Banker Fairbairn Realty is centrally located in downtown Alanson, in the heart of the Inland Waterway. The Fairbairn name is no stranger to Northern Michigan. The Fairbairn family has been in business and volunteerism in the Northern Michigan communities since the 1880's. We are proud to be "A Trusted Name in Northern Michigan."

Fairbairn Realty's focus is on clients. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, our local knowledge of the market is vital to our client's success. We are proud to say that we are one of the only offices with memberships in both the Northern Michigan MLS (serving Emmet, Charlevoix and Antrim counties) and Water Wonderland MLS (serving Cheboygan, Crawford, Mackinac, Montmorency, Oscoda, Otsego, & Presque Isle counties). Association memberships give our clients greater exposure in the marketplace.
