About Me

About Me

I am so glad you have decided to visit! I have lived in the Greater Grand Rapids area nearly all my life, and I love practicing real estate and the fact that I get to work in such a positive and thriving community. I work hard to give my clients the best service that can be provided and I'm not afraid to roll up my sleeves and dig in to get the job done.

Why Work With Me?

While my practice has always been able to be summed up with the word service, I started my business with three words in mind: Prompt, Thorough and Professional.

Prompt

As you get to know me, you will see that I live this out daily. Besides showing up for all appointments on time, if you need to reach me, I guarantee you that all means of communication are answered as soon as possible. Usually within an hour.

Thorough

I don’t leave anything to chance and approach each transaction with great detail and am careful that all documentation is complete and precise.

Professional

I never forget that this is a business and needs to be treated as such.  I don’t allow for emotional actions and will always carefully assess a situation before making decisions about a transaction.

Family Values

Many of my past clients refer to me as a family guy because of my commitment to family values and my strong dedication to my convictions.

I've been married to Judy since 1996. She has been in health professions since 1995 and is currently a Nurse Educator at Spectrum Health.

I have 3 wonderful children. Silas is 20 and is a college freshman this fall. Koby is 19 and is attending college this fall as a sophomore. Abbie is 15 and is involved in dance, singing and theater.

I love fishing, gardening, yard games, family time and watching the Detroit Tigers in my spare time.

Serving in The Community...And The World

I love serving my clients, but my serving nature stretches into other areas of my life as well.

Youth leader, usher and past trustee at my church

Traveled on mission trips to all parts of the world

Support group & men's ministry leader

Volunteered at kitchens serving those struggling

I am humbled that I have these opportunities, and I always walk away with the feeling that I received more than I was able to give.

I affiliate my business with Five Star Real Estate because they have proven themselves to be the company that allows me to be the best agent possible. Five Star has a long history of professionalism and ethics, and I am proud to be on their team. They keep me on the cutting edge of technology and they continually provide their agents with learning opportunities, so that I can be on the front lines of the latest regulations, techniques and processes.
