Meet the Cadillac Five Star Real Estate Team

Rich Herweyer

Originally from Grand Rapids, Rich thought he loved the city until his family moved to McBain, a small farming town in Northern Michigan. A place where ‘heavy traffic’ consists of farming tractors and Amish buggies competing for roadway. Rich graduated from McBain High School and went on to earn his Bachelors in Civil Engineering and Construction Management from Ferris State University. Going from an engineering background to real estate was a huge change with a sharp learning curve, but Rich jumped into it with both feet and is passionate about his work. He is dedicated to helping his clients find their dream home, and ensuring sellers receive top dollar for their homes. Rich and his wife Ashley reside in McBain today, and are proud to raise their son in such a great community.

“I would like to be your realtor for life! My partner and I will always go above and beyond. Our hard work, passion, and creative thinking will help you reach your goals.”
