Who is Steve Volkers?

I have been writing posts on this blog for a little over five months now and realized that I have never formally introduced myself.

My name is Steve Volkers and I work with Keller Williams Realty to help individuals buy and sell homes in Grand Rapids, Michigan and the surrounding area.

I strongly believe that knowledge is power. As a Realtor, my number one goal is to help counsel and teach my clients about the process of selling and buying a home in the Grand Rapids area kw_stack_color.jpg

With unique internet marketing tools, I am able to get homes in front of more people in Grand Rapids than the average Realtor.

It’s no longer the age or a market that we can put a home on the Grand Rapids Association of Realtors (GRAR) Multiple Listings Service (MLS) and pray that it will sell.

So thank you for reading my blog and starting the learning process with me. I hope that the articles that you will read on this blog will enrich your life and give you the knowledge and power to buy or sell your next home.

Also see my Facebook Profile to learn more about me and keep up with what is going on in my life.

How to Search for Homes in Grand Rapids!

There are many different resources today that will help you find the home of your dreams before even talking to an agent.

First resource is Grrealestate.net that can point you in the right direction. Click on the Search Kent County Homes Page and pick any of the links to go to the Multiple Listing Service Provided by the Grand Rapids Association of Realtors.

From this search page you will be able to find home in the school district or area of town you want to live in and you can also look up homes in different categories like Price Bedrooms, Baths and many other things.

The second and more in-depth resource to search listings on line is called the Home Buyers Scouting Report. Very few agents are able to offer this produce to the public. But I have been able to secure this resource for any one that is search for a home in the next 6 months. This recourse is free and does everything the MLS does but it does so much more then that. It offers Google maps, search create that you can change and update at any time, email up dates on home you are looking at, it also offers something that the MLS doesn’t to new buyers and that is how much home sold for in your search area before you even sign up with using an agent.

  So if you would like to use these free recourses just give me a call or send me an email so I can get you started in this free service. All I ask from you is that you give me the first chance to show you all that I can offer when you are ready to buy a home.
