Kevin Yoder Radio Interviews



Buying Or Selling A Grand Rapids Home?

Brandy – “After my previous experience with my other Realtor, I liked that I could do away with the contract and just work day to day. Kevin always followed up and he always let us know what was happening with the house. He actually does what he says he’ll do and the communication was wonderful. I would highly recommend him and we would definitely use him again!”

Angel – “We had a pretty awesome experience. The stager came out and told us what to do to the house from putting an extra coat of paint on to suggesting we store some of our stuff offsite to make it look presentable. I think that really helped out a lot especially since the first day it was on the market, someone came through the house.”

Deb – “They were responsive and on top of things throughout the entire process. They are an extremely professional organization, and we were very pleased in working with them.”
