I firmly believe we as agents should be reviewed about our service to the public we serve. There are times we may NOT receive the review we would like to hear but frankly some of the things that may be said coula possibly help us to be better. One of my quotes I’ve been using lately is”if we wan...
We all know and are aware of the shortage of inventory here in the West Michigan area. Now is the time to work on getting your home(s) ready for sale and for the upcoming spring market. In my opinion I believe we will have a great market but the home(s) that will be coming out will have to be pri...
Prices of homes (new and resale) are still going up with no end in sight. I’m aware of the change in season here in Michigan but it is still a great time to buy and a great time to sell real estate. I have had some of my clients tell me they want to wait until spring when the snow is gone. Waitin...

  After being in the business for over 31 years theses 2 things (on many occasions) I have run into from buyers so many times. In fast paced markets (which we have in this area) buyer’s NEED to be preapproved alongside their offer to make themselves competitive. I encourage them to get 2 estimate...
  As you think about selling your home a few things should come to mind as you make the decision to move forward. The area where your home is located is one of the most important in my opinion. People shop area and school(s) more than anything else. They want/need to get into the right schools fo...
There are things that more likely than not will sway you to make the decision to buy OR to renovate/remodel your existing home.
