Your Real Estate in Real Life Context

A home is the central hub of a family's life. Typically, it's also a family's largest asset. That's why having the right professional to guide you through the process of selling your home or purchasing a new one is so critical. I understand that a successful real estate transaction is one that balances the emotional aspects that are naturally inherent with the science of interpreting the latest data, creating an action plan and implementing it.

Community Involvement

I am so fortunate to call West Michgan my home. The community provides its residents with a quality of life that is hard to beat. Blessed with so many giving spirits, the Grand Rapids metro area is second to only Salt Lake City as the most philanthropic region in the US. This generosity has benefitted our community in countless ways. So many of our institutions can be described as world class: Van Andel Institute, Frederick Meijer Gardens, Grand Rapids Art Museum, the "Medical Mile" (MSU College of Medicine, Helen Devos Children's Hospital, Meijer Heart Center and more), several colleges and universities, and a thriving downtown entertainment district.

It is my hope that I leave a legacy that furthers our pursuit of creating a community of uncommon greatness. That's why I am proud to be a part of organizations striving for just that:
