My Family and I Love West Michigan

My wife Liza and I live in Park Township and we have four grown children.  We love living along the lakeshore here in West Michigan.  It's a great lifestyle watching sunsets on Lake Michigan or riding along tree lined bike paths that cross the Holland area.  We're blessed with a vibrant downtown, great schools, and a diverse economy that make this a great place to call home.  If you're new to the area I'll be happy to show you around!
