This is one of my favorite Christmas carols.  Can you imagine what it would be like if we could really have Joy for the whole world?  I pray that you and yours have an amazing finish to 2018.

May you have a safe, loving, and prosperous Holiday Season.

It is hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close.  The older I get the faster the months slip away.  Each day when I awake, I thank the Lord for the new day, and a lot of other blessings as well.

Now that I have experienced my first year back in the real estate business, I thank God several times a day.  I thank him for the strength I need to do what is necessary for my clients and customers.

Marketing a home is not an easy process regardless of what you may hear from some news media.  There are so many steps from the first consultation to the closing.  It had been shared with me, when I first got back into this business, that technology and dot loop were the latest tools of the trade.  I was happy to discover that, even those tools work with precision, the fact remains that people still like to be nurtured along the way from the purchase or a sale to the closing.

Today’s mortgage world is full of amazing new grants and programs to help the first time home purchasers get started. Call me for details 269 342 2618.  They also have low-interest rate mortgages for those who are buying their second home, a cottage at the lake, or retirement condo.

I have a Web Page that allows for easy browsing of the properties that are for sale in all South and West Michigan.  The address is  No need to sign up or commit to anything, browsing is encouraged.

Who knows you just may see something that meets your housing needs.

May the Joy of the Season surround you.

Blessings now and in the new year,
