Partnering with Families and Older Adults to Love where they live. I grew up in western Michigan just a few miles from where I live today. With 25 years of combined sales experience, I chose to take the plunge into Real Estate back in 2015. By providing personalized, professional service that exceeded client expectations, my Real Estate business grew quickly. After working with my mom, who is in her 80’s, to access her changing housing needs, I came to realize the unique challenges faced by older adults. This inspired me to become a Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP) and I am currently the only one in Michigan. While I still love working with families and individuals, this unique training allows me to serve seniors at a higher level. As a single agent, I enjoy handling all aspects of every deal and am skilled in working on either side of a transaction. When working with clients who require additional services, I am happy to serve as the "hub" who can bring together and coordinate the various professionals required in a move. This is especially true with Seniors who often require assistance with organization, downsizing, legal matters, financial matters, and more. To assist seniors in learning their options, I created the “Grand Rapids Savvy Senior Learning Series”, a series of live monthly educational events at Meijer Gardens. While currently on hold for COVID-19, I am working to develop online resources until it is safe to hold in-person events. In the meantime, I am helping my clients navigate today's fast-paced and competitive real estate market. Not just a move- it's Downsizing Made Easy.
