My Story

As a real estate professional in the Grand Rapids area, I have had the opportunity to serve all kinds of people from all walks of life. I find great joy and satisfaction in helping people. I believe the way I do business reflects how much I love my work and care about the people I serve.

I have two awesome kids ( my daughter is 15 and my son is 19 ). I have been married to a general contractor for 25 years. My husband Mike Prins owns MPi Concept Homes ( www.mpihomes.com ). Having been associated with new construction and remodeling, I have a unique expertise in home systems and construction. This has been a quality that my buyers find very helpful and my sellers appreciate when it comes to preparing their home for a listing.

I have a background in marketing, photography, and sales.

My zest for life has allowed me many opportunities to grow and learn from others. Beyond real estate, I enjoy fly fishing, canoeing, biking, hanging with the family, and investing in the lives of our next generation. I have been a youth leader for over 12 years, where I am also a worship leader. Great fun stuff!!!

Certifications

 I provide a multitude of exceptional services to my clients, both buyers and sellers. I have a passion for doing things well in order to help my clients achieve their real estate goals. This service begins with a thorough understanding of those goals. Along with that, I have an understanding of who my clients are as everyday people and how I can serve them to my best ability.With a background in marketing and sales I have developed a system that has brought success to my clients. I believe in the "above and beyond" type of service approach to help my clients attain their real estate goals. These exceptioanl services include:A Team Approach Buying and selling a home involves time, energy and "on the ball" momentum.  It is our job to make sure all the pieces fall into place and that marketing stays consistent and up to date. Therefore, I have a trained team of professionals to assist in the sale and to help ensure a smooth and successful transaction.Free Home Market Analysis And Advisory MeetingThe analysis is prepared in a way to help sellers understand clearly what they might expect to net from the sale of their home, including all closing costs and expenses. We will also discuss goals and market conditions which will help the seller to decide if it is in his or her best interest to sell. Free Staging AppointmentThis is designed to assist clients in setting the stage for successful showings of their home. This is a huge help to sellers. Prospective buyers want to be able to dream and imagine what their furniture will look like in the homes they are viewing. Staging is a way to showcase the home in such a way.Quality Photography With Every ListingThere is nothing worse than a home featured on the Multi- Listing Service with poor photography. It is a turn off to buyers. With a background in photography, I understand the value of excellent and quality pictures to capture the attention of any prospective buyer. The photographs that we take of our listings are digitally captured. We do all of our own photo shots and editing to ensure the best quality.A Multitude Of Internet ExposureI have recognized the importance of internet/ web marketing in this rapidly changing world of technology. Most people today are choosing the internet as a means to shop for anything from jewelry to homes. This is why we make sure that every one of our listings is seen on numerous web sites to maximize exposure to produce a sale. In fact, please visit one of my websites at www.sueprins.com. Explore my listings and gain valuable information from this site in regard to purchasing or selling a home.Negotiating SkillsThis is probably of more value to both buyers and sellers than isrealized. Good negotiating skills makes all the difference in any transaction. I enjoy negotiating and feel it is one of my strengths. My non-combative approach and ability to ease tension and emotion help secure my clients best interest.Consistant CommunicationNo one likes a "secret agent" when it comes to selling their home. Sellers need to know what is happening with their listing. We have made it our goal to have consistent communication with our clients. When showings have been scheduled and executed, our clients are aware of the outcome.  We also ibelieve it's important to communicate our marketing strategies to our clients so they understand what's going on with their listing.Experience With Relocation Services It is important to chose an agent who has experience in the process of working with relocation companies. I have closed a number of relocation deals on both sides (buying and selling) and am very confident in these types of transactions. My experience will prove to be benificial to ensuring a smooth transaction.Foreclosure And Short SalesIt is no surprise that this market has been steadily increasing. Whether buying or selling a home that falls in the category of short sale or foreclosure, you want to be sure to choose an agent who has knowledge and experience in these types of sales. There are many important issues that need to be considered (for both buyers and sellers) that can make all the difference in a transaction of this nature. Though I have experience in these types of sales, it is also an area I have commited to staying educated in as the market continues to change. Proven ExperienceI have a strong sales record in the Greater Grand Rapids area.  I am recognized as one of the top agents in my company. I have developed good standing and rapport with fellow agents, as well as with both of the boards that I am associated with.
