Wally Hartwig 7/13/1927-12/31/2014
Wally Hartwig, Father of Ben, was in real estate since before Ben was up on two feet. Wally sold real estate all over the state of Michigan, and he's lived all over the mitten as well. Ben lived in over 12 different homes before graduating high school. From West Branch to Gun Lake, and back to Shelby Township where Wally hung up his broker's license for good. He's made a stop at just about every one of the most popular brokerages, and ran his own over his tenured career as well, like Realty World
Wally could turn a smile from just about anyone, one of our favorite stories of Wally is... "I knocked on the front door and a woman opened the door and slammed it right back in my face... so I went to the side door and knocked again, the woman said "What do you want"... I said, I tried the front door, but an angry woman slammed the door in face, so I thought I'd try the side door." Wally, you will be missed, but the many real estate lessons learned will live on through The Hartwig Team.
