National Award Winning!!! "High Tech Real Estate Agent"
I'm your next generation internet savvy Realtor. I've been in Real Estate for 10 Years, and know how to position your property effectively on the internet. This is important to you, because 90%+ of buyers are looking for homes on the internet now. If you're reading this you're probably in that 90%. I have 2 business degrees from Western Michigan University, one in Finance with an emphasis in Real Estate, and the other in Computer Information Systems. As any successful Realtor I have current market knowledge and excellent negotiating skills. I'm a full service Realtor and my goal is to exceed your expectations, I plan to serve all of my clients to a level that they want to refer me to all of their friends and family. I also serve on the REThink Council, which is a national real estate council for the entire Berkshire Hathaway network. Only 10 professionals from around the world were chosen to serve on this prestigious board.

On a personal note, I am happily married to Kara, my beautiful wife. She also works with me in the Real Estate Industry & together we make a pretty great team (personally & professionally). I coached Rockford High School ski-racing for 6 years and am still an avid ski-racer.

Team reviews

We worked with Mark Brace to buy a home when relocating from Seattle to Grand Rapids. In every interaction, Mark was professional, knowledgeable, honest and quick to respond. Even after our offer was accepted, Mark worked to address any issues that arose and benefit us. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the GR area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Grand Rapids, MI.

Mark did a fantastic job for us. We were looking to find a home in the very tough Forest Hills Northern District. He was was very knowledgeable and knew the process well. We were able to find a home and couldn't be happier. I would recommend Mark to anyone who wants someone who grew up in the area and knows the market well.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Lowell, MI.

Mark was a great resource for us. He was very knowledgeable about school districts and pointed out any potential resale issues he saw when looking at houses. He was very flexible and accommodated our schedule needs. Would definitely recommend Mark!
