I was recently named a Finalist for the prestigious national award of being named a top 30 Realtor in the country under the age of 30 for the year 2012.
Next week I will find out if I made the top 30.
If I make the top 30 I will be featured in the National Real Estate Magazine.

Here is some information that is currently on the website: Most agents look for that secret idea for success, but sticking with the basics is the real answer. The basics include consistent prospecting, lead generation, and lead conversion. I believe in having multiple lead generation sources so if one area slows, my business can still move forward. I generate leads from my own personal Web site, social media networks, Zillow, Trulia, Craigslist, and call-capture marketing among other methods. My core business strategy has not changed much over time, but the way I get business has. Luke Bouman

There is currently a tax credit available for first time home buyers to receive a $3,000 grant. I just had a buyer of mine get this when they closed on their home a couple weeks ago. When the grant $ is out this offer will not be available. Give me a call and I can give you more information about it.
Even those who have millions of dollars of savings in their banks do not consider the option of purchasing property without the help of a mortgage loan. Going in for a loan to purchase property is a simple and elegant solution that will help you safeguard your savings and build assets without any difficulty. If you are not comfortable with the idea of going in for loans, then you have no option but to learn more about mortgage loans so that you can convert your dream of purchasing property into a reality. Using borrowed money and trying to enhance your savings by investing it in high return assets is the smartest option to finance the purchase of your property.
Hows The Market? The question I get asked almost everywhere I go. The truth is...it has really improved. We are busy even in January. There are still buyers in the market. Interest rates remain at record lows and inventory is down.
Four years after the housing markets bubble burst, recession-weary consumers no longer need to be wary about the prospects of home ownership.
There has never been a better time to buy a home, despite the doom and gloom media headlines that still linger in the recessions wake and otherwise cloud an upbeat housing market.
Beyond the grim headlines, there are plenty of positive signs that the current housing market is on the rebound: competitive home prices, record low interest rates, and lots of inventory.
Lower home prices and interest rates combine to provide prospective buyers with substantial savings both in monthly payments and over the life of a loan.
What is the VALUE of Your Home? Let me provide you with a comparative market Analysis. A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is an evaluation of similar homes in an area also known as comparables to determine the current market value of a home. Real estate agents, on behalf of buyers and sellers, perform a CMA to determine your home's value. You may be thinking you are ready to sell your home and that you should wait until spring (because that is the best time to sell right?) The fact is you have a better chance of getting the best price while there are fewer homes on the market. The buyers looking this time of year are serious and they are finding that there is not much to look at. If you have plans of selling in the coming year, I encourage you not to wait.
The best part of my job is the satisfaction I get from assisting my clients in the purchase and sale of real estate.
Managing all the details and removing the stress from the process is truly rewarding work. I am passionate about my work and look forward to every opportunity that presents itself.
If you have any friends or family that may be considering buying or selling a home, please invite them to contact me. I would be happy to provide any assistance I can.
Holland Michigan Homes For Sale
I am now looking to take listings for my "Pre-Spring Listing Blitz."
Most home sellers wait until the spring to list their home. Many sellers I work with want to beat that rush of inventory and get on the market before everyone else does. Could you miss the buyer if you wait until the Spring? Yes!!! There are several buyers right now waiting for the next new listing and you could be it. Give me a call and we can discuss my Listing Blitz in more depth.
This year I have a good chance of being named a top 30 Realtor in the country under the age of 30. Take a look at my application video and let me know what you think.
Thank you for making 2012 such a great year!
I was fortunate enough to help 70 families buy and sell Real Estate all across West Michigan.
Some of these buyers moved on the Lake, a few sellers I worked with moved away from the lake, while many of the buyers I worked with were taking advantage of the low interest rates. From First time home buyers to relocation sellers I really enjoyed working with all of you.
During the year I was able to make 100+ referral recommendations to local businesses, and have a goal to reach over 150 in 2013. Thank you also for your confidence in my business as I received over 40 referrals from friends, family and past clients.
In February I plan to add a buyer agent to continue growth and to provide even better service to my clients in Holland, Zeeland, West Olive, Grand Haven, Hamilton, Hudsonville and surrounding West Michigan Cities!
Thanks again and Happy New Year!
Maintaining your property in good condition can be an expensive affair. Painting your property regularly, taking care of the exteriors, repairing seepage and leakages inside, redesigning the interiors, and improving the aesthetics of the property can cost you a lot of money. But if you keep up on the projects you will avoid having even larger expenses when you have to re-do the whole thing. Of course, you have the option of staggering all these expenses over a period of time but you cannot avoid them. Keep this fact in mind when you are purchasing property. The fact that you can purchase your own property will create expectations. Be prepared to spend more money towards maintenance once you become the owner of your own home or apartment. If you are selling your home I often say, You will either pay for the repairs when you are living in the home, or when you sell. A buyer is going to come in with a lower offer with a home needing updating and repairs, and may even ask for a credit on top of the lower offer. Zeeland Michigan Real Estate
