Thank you again for all of your help and support through this process Marilyn. You were a dream to work with and I will be recommending you to any and all friends and family that ever need an agent to help buy or list a home. You are fabulous! As a courtesy to my still-husband Jason, if you could not post the picture of the cute cake and me and Jeff and Facebook, it would be appreciated…just in case someone would see it and pass it along to him. It has been a hard thing for both of us to come to terms with and I’d rather not have him see a picture with me and someone else. I’m sure you can understand. Anyway, I’m so excited to be in my new home and you will have to stop in sometime when I have it painted and decorated. Mojito on the porch!

I am sorry that I missed the closing last Friday but wanted to thank both of you for the superb job, once again, in helping us move another bank property. The results were beyond my expectations and certainly couldn’t have been much quicker. From what Joel shared with me it was the staging that made the property standout to Mrs. Dixon.
While all of the details involving the Chemical merger are still being formulated, it appears very likely that following the merger my role with residential property will be limited to commercial related relationships and perhaps upper end properties that fall under the commercial workout or “special assets” area under Chemical’s structure. We still may have some opportunity to work together on these limited circumstances. I will of course highly recommend both of you to those individuals responsible for REO residential properties in the area, if in fact that responsibility ultimately moves elsewhere.

Wow!!! You’re awesome…. We don’t have a Tom at the Holland office but we do have Thom Houseman in the Hamilton office. It’s priced right so it’s just a matter of time. We’ve been getting calls and showings; the house is getting winterized soon, newly painted basement, what more could you ask?
I’ve attached the data sheet for 15756 Margaret Ave in Spring Lake for your review. I went to high school with my clients and they’ve been doing work to the house lately. They need to move on and I’m sure would love to sell. I think it’s priced well with what you get. The house will need a roof probably but will show great if you want. They live there so I’ll have to make arrangements for you. Let me know.
I really appreciate you getting the bank to take care of me so soon! Are you an angel? Have a great day and be safe driving!


You’re a treasure!
Thank you for trying! We know that the market/economy is terrible…just hoping that someone would fall in love with the place! Thank you for your continued efforts!
You rock! ☺

Hurray!!!This may finally come to a close for you. Your hardwork may actually get to payoff!! Thank you for keeping on fighting for this. I was telling someone the other day that when the market turns around and is normal again, which I think it will be, that you as a realtor, will really take off because you have really learned how to sell houses. It’s like the loan officers during the refi boom – all they had to do is show up for work and take apps and when the refi’s went away so did most of those loan officers because they didn’t know how to do mortgages. Be very proud of yourself! Thanks for the feedback. I have not found a job as yet but hopefully will very soon. Can’t go on like this forever.

We s-o-o appreciated you chauffeuring us around the last two days so we could get familiar with the Grand Rapids area. It really helped us decide our location.
Ron has all his little arrows on his map! Ha-Ha!
When our house does sell we can look at the same area for Condo’s that are for sale with you.
You made it enjoyable and fun during this transition in our life. We think that you were the right person at the right time for us. Hey does that sound like a Real Estate Ad or what? Ha-Ha!
Do let us know if any Condo pops up in the Rockford area. We are still curious about that.
We will stay in touch!



You two have been wonderful. I certainly dragged you guys all over town trying to find a house. I think I have a bit of STICKER SHOCK at the moment. I will bring in the check for $2000 tomorrow.


Hi Marilyn,
Well it’s been a week that the movers came to Dearborn to pack us up to move to Ada. Who would have thought that when we first met that we would be in Ada. We really like it here and our daughter does too.
She has asked us to watch Sydney for her this week-end and next week. We just adore that little one!
I have to say that the Closing was professional and personalized a great combo! The Condo was clean and sparkling when we moved in. Tracy stopped by today to give us some mail that came while they were here. He said that they are closing on Thursday that was great news.
Well the welcome mat is rolled out and we hope that you will stop by to see us.
We want to thank you for all your help and calm in the whole process. Even though I know that you were stressed at times. You did a great job and so did John with our mortgage.
I have done really good navigating around in our area and haven’t had to send out the SOS so far to Ron.
Talk to you soon!

Sincerely, Brenda
