I am a native of West Michigan, born and raised here. My family has roots in West Michigan going back to the early 1800's. I went to high school in Jension, college at Michigan State (BA Journalism) and have lived in the greater Grand Rapids area ever since. I would never leave West Michigan, unless I were to move further north.
For the last 17 years, my husband daughter and I have lived in Rockford. The school system is wonderful; our daughter thrived here and my husband and I were able to volunteer with many of her extra-curricular activities. Once she went on to college, my down-time activities have become more personal; I spend summer weekends on a sailboat in Holland, non-working evenings in my garden (I'm a memeber of the Rockford Garden Club) and I still try to get in my every other day run.
I am a licensed Realtor who got into the business because I like to look at houses. I like all kinds of houses and can imagine living in lots of different neighborhoods in the greater Grand Rapids area. But I specialize in helping my clients purchase and/or sell their homes. My goal is to be the agent with the most satisfied clients not the agent with the most transactions. I truly love this area and pride myself on my knowledge of current transactions, school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance and inspection information.
As a Realtor, I am dedicated to providing exceptional service. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I'd love to help you.
