“It was truly a pleasure to work with Chad on the purchase of our Lake Michigan home. After experiencing several other local brokers, I can definitively say that no one else offered the same level of market knowledge, insight and professionalism. Chad has a genuine passion for the Michigan lakefront home market and a substantial depth of transactions that is invaluable to potential buyers. Without any hesitation, Chad will be our first call should we decide to sell our Lake Michigan beachfront property or buy another – I am fully confident in his ability to once again exceed all of our real estate expectations.”

"Josi was a fantastic realtor who we recommend highly. We've bought a lot of properties over the years, both residential and commercial and she is the best agent we have ever dealt with. She was very knowledgeable, detail oriented, quick to respond to our questions and helpful. She made the process extremely easy and smooth for us, plus she is just a very friendly, lovely person. Josi really understands the local market and was especially knowledgeable on lake front homes. Unlike a lot of agents her help did not end after we closed, we are not from the Holland area so she was also great at making recommendations of places to go, where to get things we need and local merchants she recommends, etc. If you want an excellent buying experience from start to finish, Josi is the agent for you.”

“Our home sold in two days. Fourteen showings and three offers. Wendy Ryder was very professional and was the primary reason the house sold in such a short time.”
-Bob

“Wendy has been our Realtor for several homes we have sold and bought. She is excellent in her knowledge of the housing market. Wendy goes above and beyond helping you. She makes the whole buying and selling experience an enjoyable and friendly journey!”
-Bruce

“Wendy has been an excellent agent. We live in Chicago but looked for a place in Saugatuck so we needed an agent that was very responsive and could show us many properties in a short period of time. Wendy was able to take us around to many different properties in one day and explain the market and give her expertise on the area. Once we found our place she was invaluable in coordinating between the property management company, the agent and different vendors. We cannot say enough good things about Wendy. If you’re looking for an outstanding real estate agent she is the ONE!”
-Lindsey

“We were searching from out of state, and Wendy’s best asset was her knowledge of the area. We eventually bought a home in an area we didn’t know at all, but that has proven to be just right for us.”
-Jane

“We were out of state buyers and Wendy kept us informed on new properties coming onto the market for many months. When we found the condo we were interested in Wendy helped us through the process from beginning to end. Wendy was always available and always very helpful. She went the extra mile when we had a concern that the sellers did not address which was much appreciated. I highly recommend working with Wendy.”
-Laurie

“Wendy was extremely attentive, responsive and knowledgeable. She helped us find the home we liked in the area we liked and quickly negotiated a price we could afford. Though, we later decided to wait a little longer before buying, when we are ready we will be calling Wendy. We recommend her highly!”
-Cathy

“Wendy is the hardest working Realtor and really cares and wants to sell your property. We are so thankful for her perseverance in getting our property sold.”
-Susan

“Wendy walked us through the process from beginning to end and was always available when needed and always very helpful. She displayed a lot of local knowledge that made the process easy. She always went the extra mile when she didn’t really need to, which was much appreciated. I could not recommend someone more highly.”

“Josh Breuker is knowledgeable in the field and has a great team to back him up. His background allows him to look honestly at a home and give his customers his expert opinion. It’s quite clear he is very passionate about his job.”
-Alex Baumann

“Josh is very knowledgeable in regards to helping look to purchase a home. He was very thorough helping us find what we wanted on the market. His attention to detail when walking through a home was on point. He had great advice to help sell our home with small improvements that were within a reasonable budget. His responsiveness to questions was very timely and I wouldn’t have felt more trusting with anyone else.”
-Jeremy & Lindsey Green

“We are in the process of moving out of the country for an extended period of time but didn’t want to sell our home or rental property. We were looking for someone who was knowledgeable of the process, able to read people well, capable of managing a variety of situations, and trustworthy. Josh has met those expectations and many more! Whether we are away for just a few years or for decades, my family and I feel more than confident that our properties will be cared for in the same manner that they would be if we were doing it ourselves. We have been very pleased with the services that Josh has provided during the planning phase and have no doubt about his ability to carry out the various aspects of managing the properties when we are gone.”
