Kathy Pecar Lightbody, Licensed Realtor

Kathy Pecar Lightbody is a 1984 graduate of Mancelona High School, and has returned to Northern Michigan after 35 years in metro Detroit.

Kathy has 35+ years of sales, marketing and event-planning experience at Pecar Electronics, Crain Communications’ Automotive News, and as chairman of the non-profit EyesOn Design Automotive Design Exhibition.

Kathy’s passion for real estate has grown through the ownership and management of numerous multi-family homes in Grosse Pointe, a 28-unit apartment building in midtown Detroit, and vacation rental property at Shanty Creek Resort.

Kathy and her husband Andrew, an EMT and veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and Coast Guard, live full-time in Mancelona. Their son Connor is studying automotive repair at Universal Technical Institute in Orlando, Florida.

Kathy is thrilled to be reconnecting with friends and classmates from her early years in Mancelona. She is on the board of the Meadow Brook Foundation, and an avid volunteer at the Mancelona Buck Pole. She is a nature-enthusiast, animal-lover and is in the process of restoring a 1966 vintage camper for future outings.

Kathy and Andrew are eager to build their next chapter in Northern Michigan, and look forward to showing the beauty of “up north” to the many friends and connections made during their time downstate.
