Groot Realty Agents
I grew up in West Michigan where my immigrant father Jacob Groot was a homebuilder and real estate broker.
Jake built a reputation through the years of honesty, integrity and building and selling the highest quality homes in our area.
He was an out-of-the-box thinker, a high ethics and no-nonsense guy and lived to take care of the client.
As a youth I worked for my builder-dad doing everything from surveying lots to framing homes to planting landscape and although I did not recognize it at the time, those years serve me well today in my role of real estate agent.
Or rather it serves my current clients well!
After college and a few years of employment in the auto industry, I followed my father’s footsteps and started my own business. Being an entrepreneur is in my blood and I love being a self-starter, learning all I can about something and then applying it through serving others well. After owning my business for over 20 years I was approached by a large local company interested in buying it. What started as a conversation with them ended with me selling my company, starting a path into real estate and soon after joining in the family business.
Today, I continue the family tradition of serving clients in real estate. The years spent with my father learning about real estate and home building, the years owning and operating my own business and the values that guide me all work together in serving my clients.
