Virginia Pelton


Gini Pelton has been a member of the member of the Century 21 Team since 2006. She holds a bachelor’s degree, began her career working for the Federal Government in Social Security, was a car salesperson, served with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority for over 13 years, worked for West Shore Community College, and finally found her way to CENTURY 21 Boardwalk, a career that she says came very naturally.

Seeking to grow her personal business, she found that she shared Suzanne’s business philosophy and saw the benefit in being part of an internationally respected company. She thrives working as part of the CENTURY 21 Boardwalk Team, a group of agents that work together to have the best possible impact on the Manistee community and those we serve.

She went above and beyond her duties to make sure I was happy.I was anxious about purchasing my first home on my own, but Gini was understanding, considerate, and patient with me throughout the entire process.

Virginia is Ready

Let Her Help You Get Started


After pursuing her education at Michigan State University, Suzanne became a resident of Manistee County in 1991. Soon after, she pursued her real estate licenses and her true love for real estate was ignited. She has been delivering personalized service in successful real estate transactions ever since.

After working with Coldwell Banker for 10 years as a Realtor/Broker she was seeking a new challenge and decided to open her own office. She wanted a global name to instill confidence and looked to CENTURY 21. With national brand recognition and a reputation for delivering the highest quality service, she knew she found her match.

In 2001, she became the Owner and Broker of CENTURY 21 Boardwalk in Manistee and soon after opened a second office in Onekama to better serve the region. During the real estate downturn of 2009, she devised a creative solution to help the owners of the homes that weren’t selling offset financial concerns and created CENTURY 21 Boardwalk Vacation Rentals. A growing business that serves many of the Boardwalk clients with vacation rental management.
