Know Me


Grew up in Caledonia Michigan on Green Lake. I’m a life long Grand Rapidian.

Married my best friend in 1995.

I have 2 girls and 1 son, Gresham Olson, who is an amazing asset as a Buyer’s Agent.

I graduated from Cornerstone University and have done several years of Masters level work at a Seminary.

I love to meet interesting people and ask them a million questions. I’m a reader, writer, avid movie goer.

If we shared a cup of coffee you would learn:
I’m calm and easy to talk with, which has been by biggest asset in real estate sales. I am a clear thinker, low pressure, and know my stuff. But by the 2nd cup of coffee you might learn parts of my life resemble a Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.
