Looking for a new home? Buying or Selling a home can be very stressful. Most of us lead busy, active lives...and don't need another "stressor". Whether you are a first time buyer, or an experienced investor, a real estate transaction can be a paperwork maze of unending details. This is why you need a REAL ESTATE EXPERT...someone who is honest & trustworthy, knowledgeable & experienced, and detail oriented. In addition to product knowledge about the inventory of homes, it is mandatory that your REALTOR be a "people person" with effective communication skills. And, finally, it never hurts to have a sense of humor!
For years my motto has been "I Don't Sell Swampland". I'm honest, trustworthy, and dependable...I'm not a high pressure, fast talking sales person. I won't sell you something you don't want....I won't sell you Swampland in Florida. I've been licensed as a REALTOR and selling homes in the Greater Grand Rapids area for over 28 years. I have hundreds of happy, satisfied clients that I have helped move two, three, or four times... as their families grew and their needs changed. I have specialized for years in the "First Time Home Buyers' Market" and am well acquainted with all the government loans (FHA, VA, MSHDA, Grand Rapids Home Buyer's Assistance Program), as well as with the traditional loans (Conventional, FreddieMac, FannieMae), and also the specialty loans (Private Mortgages, Land Contracts). I have access to many lending institutions and a variety of loan options...and will help you with a loan tailor made for your personal needs.
It has always been my pleasure to serve my clients professionally and ethically, and to educate both my buyers and sellers as to the market trends and finance options.
I am convinced that to be an expert in any profession, you must be willing to devote extra time and effort to training, continuing education, and self-analysis. I have built my reputation on honesty and integrity. My goal has been to serve my clients as a professional and a friend. I welcome the chance to assist you in your real estate needs.
