• "John & Matt,
    The last few weeks have been a delight getting to know you. We are very appreciative & thankful our paths crossed. You have taken our lifetime of dreams and made them reality. After just a few days we knew you were the right guys for us. Your work is meticulously done, as though you were working on your own home. You were constantly aware and sensitive to our needs and concerns, while thoughtfully offering ideas to make things work better and easier. Simply put, we love the finished product and the hassle free chemistry we enjoyed with you. Plus, we greatly admire your business and work ethic. You gave us tremendous value! Wishing you only the best in life,"

Cabin care picture

Lake Land Property Services was founded by brothers John and Matt Hackbarth. We grew up in northern Indiana and since childhood, we have enjoyed summer trips “Up North” to a family getaway in the Upper Peninsula. We loved northern Michigan so much we eventually moved our families to the Traverse City area. (Couldn’t talk the wives into living in the U.P.)

Our cabin in the north continues to provide great memories with friends and family. It requires a lot of upkeep as well, but we found we enjoyed the work and were good at it. Over the years, friends and neighbors began calling on us to help service and repair their homes and facilities - and you guessed it, an idea was born.
