TRADITION of DEDICATION to
BUSINESS and the COMMUNITY:
Great Lakes Commercial Real Estate evolved as
a means of enhancing the ability of its parent company - Dagenais Enterprises
- to continue to provide leadership in the sale, leasing, and development of commercial properties throughout Delta County,
and other major communities in northern Michigan.
The path which led to the outstanding growth
of Dagenais Enterprises began back in 1966 when Robert Dagenais purchased his
first auto dealership - Riveside Auto Sales in Escanaba, Michigan; and expanded his business, along with the help of his wife
Jeanine and their sons. Now the Riverside Auto Group consists of seven dealerships serving three communities in northern
Michigan and one in Wisconsin. The expansion and success of the Riverside organization paved the way for a diversity
of other business interests to emerge over the years.
Today, the Dagenais sons are carrying on the tradition and
continue to operate the auto dealerships, as well as leading banking institutions based in Escanaba, a shopping center
in Marquette, MI., three manufactured housing communities and a residential subdivision development in Escanaba; in addition
to numerous commercial real estate holdings. To share in the rewards from their dedication to these business entities,
the Dagenais Foundation was formed in 1994 to provide grants to various community organizations.
Dagenais Enterprises for many years has been a well recognized name throughout most of the
central northern Michigan region - both in terms of its business operations, and for its sense of vision into the
economic future of these markets.
Part of this vision resulted in the formation of Great
Lakes Commercial Real Estate; offering the type of commercial brokerage
service that was previously not available in this region.
The investment in key commercial real estate locations has
earned Dagenais Enterprises the reputation of being a top resource for new business
site selection and development in this area. The company, for instance, has provided an entry into its home market for
such noted retailers as Wal-Mart and numerous others.
