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 at record low!

Now is the best time to list if you are considering selling. The inventory is down and buyers are looking!

Know Someone In Trouble?

Do you know someone who is having a tough time making their payments? Is the bank threatening foreclosure? I am sure there are a lot of questions and no where to turn.

I may be able to help. As a Trained Loss Mitigation Consultant, I have the training and experience to help in many situations. There are several options and I would be happy to help determine which option is best in each particular case. ALL cases are strictly confidential and there is no fee up front.

Confused with all of the terms?

  • Short Sale
  • Foreclosure
  • Sheriff Sale
  • Deed In-Lieu
  • Cash For Keys
  • Loan Modification
  • Loss Mitigation
  • Home Retention Consultant
  • Work-out Department
  • Redemption

Give me a call or an email. I will do what I can to answer all questions, and once again, everything is strictly confidential. 

I am here to help.

Professional Background

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. 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.

Personal Interests

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.

Community Involvement

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.
