Our Team

Kevin Yoder
CEO / Lead Agent
Kevin founded Yoder Real Estate, formally known as The Yoder Team, in 2001. Kevin graduated from GVSU in 1995 with a Bachelor’s of Art’s degree. Before starting in real estate in 2002, Kevin worked in various sales and sales management roles in telecommunication and home security. Kevin openly admits that he owes much of his success to standing on the shoulders of giants (his mentors and coaches) and humble implementation and pig-headed discipline. While Kevin loves the real estate business and serving his clients, his true inspiration is his family; he and his wife, Jenni, have 3 children, Lucy, Lilah and Henry.

Deanna Holman
Closing Manager
Deanna is a veteran, alongside Chuck Norris. Not that she actually met him, but they were both Air Force Security Forces members. After separating from the military, Deanna was allured by her handsome husband, Bryce, to move up north to his neck of the woods (far from her roots in Northeast Tennessee). While growing accustomed to the climate change, Deanna graduated from GVSU with a Bachelors in Business Administration. She then went on to obtain another Bachelors in Project Management. Then, Kevin hired Deanna on April Fools Day (no joke!), and the rest is history. When Deanna isn't busy bringing our clients to closing, she enjoys quality time with her husband (still handsome), her son Eli, and her two dogs: Pelee & Izzy. She also enjoys mastering her roux for gumbo.
