Now Is A Great Time To Invest In West Michigan Real Estate.
With the market coming back now is a good time to invest in real estate in the West Michigan Area. The market is quite active and interest rates are still very good!
Now is the best time to list if you are considering selling. The inventory is down and buyers are looking! Once interest rates go up buyers will not qualify as much and could slow the market down a bit.
Give me a call!
Know Someone In Trouble?
You need an expreienced agent whether you are buying or selling a property.
Getting the property properly marketed, or finding the right home is only part of the battle. The real test of a good agent is when it comes time to negotiate. You need someone to help you get the best price and the best terms. You need someone who will help you with a good strategy to accomplish your goals.
I have worked the residential and commercial building industry since 1973. I feel that knowledge of how that home or commercial building was built is an advantage to you, as a Buyer. I see things that a lot of people miss. I am also used to long hours of hard work and sometimes that is what it takes to get your home SOLD! Or to get you into your New Home!
I proud to be a 3rd generation Realtor as I am following in my father and grand father's footstep selling real estate here in West Michigan. I am looking forward to working for you.

My Favorite LINKs
Cindy & I have been married for more than 40 years. We have 3 Children and 2 Grandchildren and a Great Granddaughter. I grew up in the Muskegon area and know it very well. In my free time, I enjoy raising horses and mules as well as gardening and canoeing with my family and friends in this beautiful area that we live in.
In 2000 my great uncle gave me a copy of his life story just before he passed away. In it he referred to his grandpa as Grandpa Long. He also talked about crossing Kansas in a covered wagon and seeing Indians and Buffaloe herds. I was intriged. I had a few friends interested in Genealogy so I asked for a little help and got hooked. Since Cindy and I have tracked down our Great Great Grandparents on both sides of our family and several generations beyond with some lines.
I have been involved with Pathfinders, which is our church youth group, for over 15 years. I enjoy teaching, camping, and working with the youth.
I volunteer with Habitat For Humanity when I can and have volunteered some time helping build a church in Rockford Michigan.
