About Molly

Armed with the experience in the human resource, sales, and construction areas, Molly Buttleman specializes in the Traverse City and the surrounding residential areas buying and selling with an emphasis on investment and vacation properties with the MB Collection and Coldwell Banker Schmidt Family of Companies. Her knowledge of the many local communities, combined with her deep network of contacts have made her a go-to agent for those seeking the "up-North" lifestyle and all of the amenities that complement it.

Married to a Traverse City native and a lover of local real estate himself has served her well and helped to expand her brand into Northern Michigan's Antrim, Leelanau, and Benzie Counties along the way.  Molly offers valuable insight into the investing, construction, and remodeling process. She herself has been a client of Coldwell Banker Schmidt, buying and selling several personal homes over the years. “I’ve been on the other side of the business,” says Molly. As a result, she serves her clients with empathy and a high level of care: “I treat every client the same, whether they’re buying a $250,000 condo or $3 million single-family home. Everyone gets the same level of my service and my time. I’m not focused on the money or the numbers.” She is known for listening and problem-solving, often putting her own real-life buying, selling, and renovating experience to use for her clients. Her construction industry connections also give her clients an extra sense of trust, especially if they are looking to add value to a property with a remodel. 

Molly is a native of Michigan and enjoys the many things this beautiful state offers. She previously worked over 30 years in Human Resources and credits that experience to much of her success in dealing with people that she comes across in her Real Estate career.  In addition to building spec homes, personal homes and remodeling rentals with her husband her Real Estate career keeps her busy full time. 

Always looking for her next project or talking to someone about the Real Estate Market is what keeps Molly motivated and going 7 days a week. 


I am a Michigan native and have called the Grand Traverse or Leelanau County region home for more than 25 years. Understanding the demands of today's buyers and sellers has allowed me to be a top producing agent year after year.
