As a licensed 'Associate Broker', I have been serving the needs of clients and customers in the West Michigan area since 1990. Additionally, as a licensed 'State Certified Residential Appraiser' and designated Certified Valuation Consultant, I can assist my seller clients by helping them correctly price their property for the listing market. The appraisal license and knowledge of the local market also helps my home buyer clients make an informed offer to purchase.
I'm a member of, and follow the strict code of ethics of the National and Michigan Association of Realtors, the West Central Association of Realtors, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, and the National and Michigan Association of Real Estate Appraisers.
My successful transactions have included residential properties, income & investment properties, HUD homes, short sale & foreclosure properties, commercial properties, vacant land, hunting parcels, and waterfront & recreational properties.
I assist buyers and sellers through the entire process- From the pricing, marketing, negotiations, contracts & paperwork, financing, title search, appraisal, inspections, escrows, and through the closing.
I am a Past President of the West Central Association of Realtors, and I consistently attend real estate and appraisal classes & seminars to keep myself informed about updates, changes, and new ideas in our business to better serve my clients and customers.
Whether you plan on selling, purchasing, relocating (locally or nationwide), or just have questions about any of our West Michigan communities, contact me anytime for a free, no-obligation consultation. Call or e-mail me anytime at email@example.com.
I have obtained many designations and certifications over the years to better serve and communicate with my clients. Some of these include the e-PRO Internet Marketing Professional certification, AHWD At Home With Diversity certification, SHS Senior Housing Specialist certification, SFR Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource certification, RSPS Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist certification, CREA Certified Real Estate Appraiser designation, and CVC Certified Valuation Consultant designation. I have also served many years as a Director, and as the 2009 President of the West Central Assocation of Realtors. I have served on the Michigan Association of Realtors Public Policy Committee, and the WCAR Political Involvement Committee and Global Business Council. I was also awarded the 2010 Realtor Active In Politics award from my peers, being actively involved in Michigan legislation and public policy which affects private property owners and renters.
I have attended a variety of educational classes and seminars, both real estate and appraisal. I have also taken many college and extension classes from Holloway's Real Estate Institute, Muskegon Community College and Northern Michigan University to name a few.
I currently specialize in residential, vacant & recreational, and commercial & investment real estate sales, as well as residential real estate appraisals.
I am a lifelong resident of the West Michigan area. I enjoy the seasons and everything that Michigan has to offer. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, researching local & state history, cooking, networking with others in the business, and spending time with my family.
I am a Past President of the local Lions Club, Chamber of Commerce member, and local food bank donor.
