Welcome to my Website

My passion is helping you transition from your current home to your new one! I am both relentless and loyal. Furthermore, I am committed to ensuring that your move goes without a hitch.  Let me help you with yours!

Professional Background

After over 14 years as a practicing corporate and transactions attorney, I merged my people skills and legal transaction skills with my passion for West Michigan. My legal background allows me to handle even the most complex transactions. Focused specifically on the greater Grand Rapids area, I offer myself as a resource for anyone looking to make a move here.

I am a conscientious and enthusiastic real estate salesperson, committed to identifying and fulfilling your needs and wants when it comes to your next home.
