Real Estate still a great investment !!!!!!!!!!!

Professional Background

Then mixed in 10 yrs. in management with Wolohan Lumber in MI. and Ohio and 15 yrs. as owner / operator of Splinters Woodworking in Holland,MI.  

I became a Licensed Builder /Remodeler in 1994 and have hundreds of successful projects completed over the years.

Owning rental property and house "flipping" has been part of my life  since 1975.


Community Involvement

  I believe we can all have a direct impact on the quality of life in our communities.

  That belief has led me to volunteer my time and money over the years to such things as:

       " The Angel Tree " program which provides Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children. 

       " The Heart Association " auction to raise funds for research and to assist heart patients. 

       " Hope for the Single Again" program offering support to newly divoriced people.

        Also: Cub Scout leader,  church auctions,  food drives,  etc.



Personal Interests

  • Family time and church activities
  • Woodworking - Building and repairing all things wooden
  • Boating - Who could live in Holland and not enjoy a peaceful evening boat ride?


Personal Background

  I am married to the best sixth grade school teacher you will ever meet. We have three children, one still at home but she is going to GVSU, so we are nearly empty nesters.

 We are natives of the east side of the state with many job transfers and moves along the way before settling here in 1988.  We discovered that the Holland area is a great place to raise children, make lifetime friendships and enjoy the fantastic lakes and parks as well all that downtown Holland has to offer.

 I have been involved in countless real estate transactions as the sales agent, the buyer and the seller.  My "hands on" experience has given me the knowledge to guide you every step of the way, get you the best value for your investment, the true value for your property and assure you are treated with the honesty and respect you deserve.
