    Office Manager and Transaction Coordinator

    I have been living in Grand Rapids since 2002 when I attended college at Grand Valley State University. I graduated with a BA in Economics, Political Science & Business and I obtained my Real Estate License in 2010. I enjoy working "behind the scenes" with both buyer's and sellers on all of the intricate details of a Real Estate transaction! I will guide you through the process of getting a home to the closing table once you've gotten an accepted offer! I also enjoy mentoring our team, leading meetings and assisting Mark. In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling and experiencing everything our GREAT city has to offer.

    Buyer's Agent

    I am proud to say that I have lived most of my life in the Grand Rapids Area.   I have developed an extreme fondness for the area’s beauty, culture and people.  I always knew that I wanted to help others experience the privilege of home ownership. After obtaining my Bachelors Degree in finance at Grand Valley State University, I pursued a career in mortgage lending where I learned valuable skills that apply on a daily basis to my job as a Realtor.  I excel in negotiation, financing, communication and market knowledge.

    I work closely with Mark Brace, at the prestigious BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HomeServices — Michigan Real Estate, who is one of the country's top agents. Mark is a highly respected Realtor within the community. Working as a buyer specialist on his team, I am able to exercise my superior market knowledge and negotiating skills while completing every property transaction with honesty and efficiency. My goal is to work diligently and professionally to always exceed my clients expectations.

    I am married to my wonderful wife Jamie and have a baby daughter on the way.  I enjoy many outdoor activities which include hunting, fishing,boating, ATV's, bonfires, and a wide array of sports.
    You can reach me anytime at 616-889-1097 or [email protected].

    I love discussing all things real estate with people, plain and simple.  After selling real estate in Chicago for years I moved back home to Michigan and work with buyers and sellers in the greater Grand Rapids area.  Prior to selling real estate full time I started off as a director of sales & marketing for a residential real estate development company.  I have a vast array of real estate experience dealing with leasing, sales, property management, acquisition and development.  I have closed million dollar deals for sellers and investors but my true passion is assisting first time home buyers with one of the most important investment decisions that they will make.  Working with one of the top producing teams in the country, Brace Homes, allows me to provide the best technology, service, and knowledge for all of my clients.


    In my spare time I enjoy running, spending time on Beaver Island, working on my "mediocre" golf game, and Jet's Pizza (why I need to run).  I currently reside with my wife in East Grand Rapids.

    Born and raised in West Michigan, I started working at the early age of 12 as a paperboy. I've always been a self-motivated person, driven to be the best at whatever I set out to do. I believe in working just as hard for my clients and I'm driven to exceed their expectations. I get great gratification in helping people and I love a challenge.

    My amazing wife, Sabina, and I have a beautiful daughter Aibree as well as our sweet boy Adrian. They light up my heart with every smile and I couldn't boast about them enough! I also love golfing, exercising, water sports and spending time with my family most!

    Buying or selling a home can be one of the most stressful events in a family's life. My commitment to my clients is to always give my all, and I will work diligently to ease their stress and worry. My goal is to build clients for life! The greatest compliment I could receive is for them to refer me to their friends, family or co-workers and to have your repeat business when you look to buy and sell again in the future. I look forward to working with you and for you. 

    Please, don't hesitate to call, email, or text me anytime. I'm happy to serve you, your friends or your family as if they were my own :-)
