After moving North, Cori decided to stay home to raise her children. The Courtemanche family owns The Nightmare and The Dream Golf Courses located in West Branch.

For many years Cori has helped family and friends with their housing needs and decided to get back into real estate in 2019. The idea of teaming up with another women with a similar work ethic and honest approach was appealing. She joined 31 Realty and never looked back.

Penni Marsa



Penni is originally from the greater Flint area. Penni and her husband Carl loved getting away up North and eventually bought a place in Gladwin.

Once settled, Penni dabbled in many jobs and settled in real estate. Real estate is a good fit because Penni likes seeing the interior of homes and finding the right home for each person. Showing homes to prospective buyers is a large part of a realtor's job. Penni realized that she was good at listening to what people needed and then finding homes that fit their criteria. Liking what you do for a living makes working seem easy.

Penni currently lives in Sugar Springs and is very familiar with Gladwin, West Branch, Houghton Lake and St. Helen.

She joined 31 Realty in 2020 liking the honest, straight forward approach she saw at 31 Realty. Penni can help you find your place to call home.

Todd Johnson



Todd grew up hunting and fishing with his father, family, and friends, enjoying the outdoors in every way at an early age. His love for the outdoors quickly evolved into more than just a hobby. After High School, he headed off to East Lansing and earned his degree in Professional Forestry from MSU.

Todd's professional career began by working for a logging company on the west side of the state and from there moved onto a large forest products manufacturer. He held positions from a Field Forester to Mill Manager until he finally was able to make his life-long dream come true of owning his own business.

T D Johnson Forestry formed in 2021 so he could focus on his true passion of improving wildlife habitat and forest health on private lands across Northern Michigan. Being able to guide his clients through the process of selling and purchasing more land was a natural fit in his land management company and the driving force in obtaining his real estate license. He is excited and honored to join Gail and the team at 31Realty!
