Real Estate Agent
- 12330 James Street Suite H100
Holland, MI 49424
Born and raised GR girl. I was born at "Butterworth" and lived in the Grand Rapids area/Jenison until joining the USMC after High School. After honorable discharge I came back "home" to be close to family and raise kids. My blended family of 6 kids and 2 dogs currently live in Caledonia. I have lived overseas and have a passion for travel and experiencing diverse cultures.
As a business owner, landlord and professor I work hard to crunch the numbers and evaluate decisions for strategic planning and creative problem solving. I believe these skills and experiences bring a lot to the real estate table when negotiating a sale for my buyers or setting a selling price for my sellers.
As a landlord, I have helped to rehabilitate properties to increase their profitability in terms of sales and rental income. As a business owner, I have negotiated and secured contracts to insure the best possible results for the company, led the development of pricing strategies, sought out and implemented conflict resolution and remained very organized. As a professor, I have educated on business trends, ethics, legal issues, finance, problem solving, decsion making and planning.
I believe these experiences and the first hand knowledge gained throughout transfer easily to being a REALTOR and working for my clients as an advocate and assitant in their home sale or search. I would be honored to have the opportunity to put all I have learned and continue to learn to work for you.
