Cheryl Grant helped us buy the perfect home and then helped us sell that perfect home when we had to relocate. She was patient, professional and most of all, made the process stress-free. She works with a team of nice, professional service providers. We have experience buying and selling a home in another state and with another realtor...Cheryl provided by far the best experience. I wish we could take Cheryl with us as we search for our next home!

    About

    We provide the better way to buy and sell real estate. What makes us better? Note: If you are serious about selling your home, please take the time to learn about what makes us different from other real estate companies in Grand Rapids. 1 - More Choices to Sell Your Home in Grand Rapids We provide more plans, more choices, and better options! You are selling your home and deserve to have better options that fit your goals and budget. Keep more of the money you have invested in your home over the years. Click here to see all our plans to sell your home. 2 - Way Better Marketing (Yes, we said "way better") Other companies rely on their sales professionals to market your home. Well, we thought it would be better to have a real estate marketing arm to handle that. So, the only thing our agents do is handle the other hundreds of things that go on with selling your home. Oh, don't worry. We don't outsource this marketing. We are local, and we can even stop by to say hello. Oh, and when you are working with us, you are working with an agent that actually lives in the area where you are buying or selling your home. Other companies don't even care if you are assigned an agent that lives 30 minutes away! Be seen on thousands of real estate websites! 3. Way Better Service (Yeah. We said it again.) The little things matter. I remember once when my car broke down and needed a tow. I called a towing company; they came out, did their thing, and all was good. But later, they not only called to make sure things were going o.k., if I needed any additional contacts for a mechanic. But I also received a thank you card in the mail as well. You know what? I kept that card and told a ton of people about their service! So yeah, we like to not only go above and beyond for our clients, but we love to do all those little things that really count too! 4 - Saving You Money We have plans to fit any budget. It's your home. Why not sell it how you want to and save money at the same time? Take a look at all of our plans and find one that you love. Have questions or want to change something? Let us know. We are here for you.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a real estate agent do?

    Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

    • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
    • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
    • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
    • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
    • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
    • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
    • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
    • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
    • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
    • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

    What should you look for in a real estate agent?

    When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

    Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

    What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

    Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

    If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

    What do real estate agents charge?

    Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

    • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
    • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
    • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
    • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
