Hello and Happy 2019!

Since we are sequestered for a snow day in Holland, the kids are quiet and I’m feeling daring, I thought I would make my first blog entry and see how this goes:-)  Please send me a message, doesn’t have to be long, just so i know if anyone is reading this!

Thought I would start my just introducing myself.  I’m Wendy.  I’m a wife, mom, daughter, sister, and I’m also a Realtor in Holland, Michigan.  Because I like helping people, real estate became a good fit for me.  It has allowed me flexibility while we’ve raised our five kids (currently 24, 22, 20, 18 and 13) so that I could make it to their volleyball, soccer, baseball, football, lacrosse and basketball games, their choir concerts, band concerts, school assemblies, class trips and college visits.  Being a mom has taught me many things that I apply every day to my career:  listening matters, being present and asking about dreams is important, never giving up even when things seem dire, always looking up, finding the good in everyone and treating others the way I’d like them to treat me.  (Plus always clean up after yourself and put down the toilet lid!) I love being a Realtor, matching people, who start as clients and end as friends, with properties that they can call home.  I’m good at what I do because I listen and remember.  Sometimes it takes some patience to find just the right place, but I’ve got that:-)

So, that’s just a little about me and why I decided to become a Realtor many moons ago and why I’m still doing it today!  Would love to help you, or anyone you know, with buying or selling real estate.  Pass along my name and I will gratefully help to find their dream home.
