D. Gene Merillat


A resident of Lenawee County for over 50 years, Gene Merillat is a loving family man and devoted church member, who is passionate about helping people improve all aspects of their lives. After a successful career as a CPA/CMA, Gene became interested in real estate when he saw first-hand the challenges his family faced selling his parent’s home. At the encouragement of Joe Wagley, he decided to become a Realtor to assist clients as they navigate what for many is a complex web of legal documents, financial concerns and obscure fees.  Gene is in the real estate business to make sure that noone has to go through the challenges he faced selling his parent’s home.

Whether you are moving for a new job, expanding your family, or grieving the loss of a loved one and struggling to figure out what to do with your estate, Gene wants to be there to help you and your family achieve your real estate goals. As a local resident who has lived in Lenawee County his entire life, he is not only intimately familiar with the local real estate, but passionate about giving back to the community that has done so much for him.

A loving father to a daughter and two sons, and active member, Trustee and Board member at his church, Gene’s love for the outdoors is only surpassed by his desire to support his community. Gene is quick to respond to calls, decisive in important decisions, knowledgeable and more importantly, connected with a wide network of contractors, home inspectors, brokers and banks to help you and your family make timely, stress-free decisions that allow you more time to focus on what matters – finding a home that meets your unique needs and within your budget.

For those needing to sell, Gene is equally perceptive. His knowledge of the housing market and ability to accurately evaluate a house help him to quickly get your home ready and on the market, at the right time, to secure the best price at minimal cost and stress to you. Gene and his family have been in your shoes, he knows how overwhelming selling a home can be, and his goal in life is to remove that burden from your shoulders. His joy and passion is to serve, why else would he give up endless days of fishing, hunting and his newest hobby, Cowboy Action Shooting?
