National Award Winning!!! "High Tech Real Estate Agent"
I'm your next generation internet savvy Realtor. I've been in Real Estate for 12 Years, and know how to position your property effectively on the internet. This is important to you, because 93%+ of buyers are looking for homes on the internet now. If you're reading this you're probably in that 93%. 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 have now used Mark Brace as our real estate rep in three real estate transactions and have recommended him to a friend who also used his services. In all of these transactions with Mark, we were most pleasantly impressed with his knowledge, friendliness, and attention to detail. He replied to all of our concerns with extreme promptness, helpfulness, and friendliness. We were also impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of his entire staff. We will continue to recommend Mark and his entire staff. Mark has caused us to "re-think real estate" Ruth Kurth and Rachel Palmer

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Grand Rapids, MI.

Mark was relentless in his pursuit to find us a home. With the narrow window we gave him concerning location, price, and time, he nailed it. Our daughter and her family are relocating back to Grand Rapids from Wisconsin and with Mark's efforts he was able to not only find the perfect house, but was able to make it all work in a time frame that accommodated all parties. Great job Mark!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Creston, Grand Rapids, MI.

Just purchased our first home with Mark, and he was great. His knowledge of the area and the current market are fantastic, and we're incredibly pleased with all aspects of his work. He walked us through every step in the process without ever seeming condescending, was realistic and honest with us about our goals, and all-in-all made our first purchase simple. We would gladly recommend him to anyone and everyone!!  More Less
