Team reviews

Mark Brace did an excellent job. He told us the items that needed updating in order to sell our home. Once those updates were made we listed the home and accepted an offer within 24 hours. He knows his business and is very honest about what needs to be done.

WANT TO SELL YOUR HOUSE FAST?! MARK BRACE & TEAM TAKE SELLING YOUR HOME TO A NEW LEVEL!! My husband received a job offer that required us to pack up our house and move to Boston in under 2 weeks... The first phone call we made was to Mark, knowing he would be able to get the job done quickly! He came over on a Tuesday, reviewed all documents, made sure we were pricing our house competitively and gave us some detailed advice on how to get our house "show ready." By the following Wednesday, he had his photographer at our house (who by the way, takes AMAZING pictures... our house looked like something out of a catalog!) And, by Thursday our house was live! Despite the fact that it was Valentine's weekend with inclement weather, our house had several showing's. Just 3 days after listing we had a great offer in hand! Mark & his team did an excellent job negotiating and got the asking price we needed. From that point, the inspection, appraisal and legalities were all smooth sailing. We were able to close in 1 month with not a single hang-up. We truly believe that Mark Brace's Team is the ONLY way to go when selling in the Grand Rapids area. If you are looking for a team that will handle your buying/selling experience with professionalism & care... look no further!

Bought a home in 2015.

Mark has a deep understanding of the home buying process. Much more important to us was Mark's willingness to collaborate with us regarding our long list of needs and wants,;and to support us in evaluating our new home, to provide a list of qualified home inspectors, and to suggest contractors who have served his customers well.

Bought a home in 2015 in Lowell, Lowell Township, MI 49331.

Mark was incredible to work with from start to finish. We had a difficult move ahead of us with a lot of moving parts, but Mark helped us every step of the way. I was very impressed with his knowledge of homes and attention to detail. He was quick to point out minor flaws or potentially major issues that I would have never noticed on my own. I never felt like he was trying to sell me on any particular home or feature, he just showed me the ones I was interested in and pointed out pros and cons that he noticed. Mark knows the area very well and the home buying process in and out. He was attentive and easy to reach when needed. Great experience all around, this is the fourth home I have purchased and Mark was by far the best agent to work with. I highly recommend him!

Sold a home in 2015 in Lowell, Lowell Township, MI 49331.

Mark has been an excellent realtor for us. We worked with him to find our home and then sell it 3 1/2 years later. Both times he had to work with my employer's relocation company. He did a great job dealing with them. When we started the process of selling our home he clearly demonstrated that he knew how to market a home in this day and age through online media. We were very pleased with the online presentation of our home. Bottom line we sold our home in 10 days in the middle of January in Michigan.

Showed home in 2014 in Ada, Forest Hills, MI 49301.

We were the third family member to use Mark's expertise in the real estate field. He was very patient with our situation and was always ready to show us any house we inquired about. He shared his knowledge of the areas and properties we were unfamiliar with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Rockford, MI.
Primary point of contact: Krista Bashford

I worked with Krista Bashford and she was excellent. Very responsive, good overall advice in how to approach things, and always double checked listings to make sure it was worth everyone's time to see (driving distance to work, and to my preferences).

Bought a home in 2014 in Wyoming, MI 49519.

We could not have been more impressed with Mark and his responsiveness. With houses flying off the market in the spring of 2014, Mark got us a great deal and it was done in a timely manner. As first time home buyers, we never felt like we didn't know what we were doing as Mr. Brace was extremely informative with every part of the home buying process. He was never pushy, he spoke to us in a very friendly way; we actually had many inside jokes by the time this process was complete. A few weeks after we moved in, (7 months ago now) we even received a Christmas ornament made to look just like our house - nice touch! We have already recommended him multiple times to friends.

Side note - he looks just like Matt Damon; and I mean the cool Matt Damon from "Good Will Hunting" not that lame duck from "We bought a Zoo".

Thanks Mark!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Ada, MI.

Mark has helped us buy and sell our homes multiple times and we have never been disappointed in his level of knowledge or quality of service. Mark and his entire team worked hard on our behalf to provide our family with the highest level of service during an out-of-state move and then back to Michigan again. We recommend Mark to all of our friends and family!
