Mark Brace - Grand Rapids Realtor


Born & raised in Forest Hills, my passion for Grand Rapids started long before I began my career in Real Estate. I am deeply involved in our local community & love meeting new people on a daily basis!   I am extremely tech savvy and consistently change my marketing strategy to stay ahead of the ever-changing real estate market & also the competition. I have 2 business degrees from Western Michigan University (Go Broncos!), one in Finance with an emphasis in Real Estate, and the other in Computer Information Systems. As any successful Realtor, I have current market knowledge and excellent negotiating skills. I'm a full service Realtor and my goal is to exceed your expectations & serve all of my clients to a level that they want to refer me to all of their friends and family. 

Kara, my wife, partnered with me in 2010 to really start growing the Brace Homes brand & team. She has lived in Grand Rapids since 2002, attended GVSU (Go Lakers!) and graduated with a B.S. in Economics & Business. We're consistently a Top 3 team locally and rank in the Top 20 nationally for all Berkshire Hathaway Realtors. As a team, we always have someone available to help with your real estate needs and we've  helped over 1400 West Michigan families move! 

In our free time, we enjoy skiing, traveling & spending time with family & our Golden-Doodle, Roxy.
