My wife and I hired Wally to help us find our home on Walloon Lake. Having lived in Northern Michigan for many years, Wally is an expert on Walloon Lake properties. He shared extensive knowledge of the history and geographic highlights of the properties we were shown. Wally helped connect us with our new neighbors as well, friendly with many people in the community. He is dedicated to finding his clients the right home - listening to our family’s needs, getting answers to our questions, and leading us to the perfect match. Wally is supported by a team of professionals who also exhibit his positive attributes - knowledgeable, courteous, and committed to clients. We would highly recommend Wally and his team to anyone seeking an agent to assist in purchasing a Northern Michigan property”


Originally from Baltimore Maryland, Wally Kidd attended Johns Hopkins University where he studied Behavioral Sciences and played lacrosse. He moved to Petoskey Michigan in 1991 with his wife Margy and began work in sales as a Design Manager for Town & Country Cedar Homes. After four years as the company’s top salesperson, he took a job as a Sales Associate working for David V. Johnson at Bay Harbor Properties. After joining the sales staff at Bay Harbor in 1995, he quickly became a top-producing agent and soon took on the position of Director of Sales and Marketing, and was later promoted to President of Bay Harbor Properties. Wally moved on to become President of Victor Properties (the developer's parent company) based in Auburn Hills, and in 2003 Wally Kidd formed Kidd & Leavy Real Estate. His love for this region is deep. The Kidd Family has called Walloon Lake Home for over 100 years and seven generations. His lifetime on Walloon Lake has helped him develop a crystal clear understanding of what someone is looking for in Northern Michigan real estate. After all, whether it’s Walloon Lake, Bay Harbor, Lake Charlevoix, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Burt Lake or Torch Lake, the one element that remains consistent is an undying love for this area that is rich in history and traditions.

Wally, his wife Margy, and their children Tommy and Katie are proud to call Walloon Lake home.
