About twenty-four years ago, in 1991, Alix moved to West Michigan for a job transfer and has never looked back. Grand Rapids became her new home and she loves it here.
Alix learned some things when she bought her house in Forest Hills in 2001. First of all, she learned that treating her home buyers and sellers as she would like to be treated would be the underpinning of her work as a real estate agent. Alix added to this her 20+ years of business-to-business industrial sales experience and developed a philosophy for working with clients that allows her to help them move smoothly through the negotiations of the buying and selling process.
Her goal is premium customer service for her clients. This includes providing them with well researched Informed Buyer’s and Seller’s Information Packages to assist them in making the decisions that are right for them.
To assure that she is always up to the minute on current trends and practices in real estate, Alix continually seeks out sources of information and credentials. Consequently, she is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) and has earned the Graduate Realtor ® Institute’s GRI designation. The latter required 90+ credit hours of education. In January 2014, Alix earned her Associate Broker license.
On the personal side, she has experience as a volunteer police officer, and enjoys beading jewelry for herself and as gifts for friends and relatives. Her idea of relaxing is to take a walk or curl up with a cat and a good book.
When you are ready to buy or sell a property, “Ask for Alix” and get ready for a great real estate experience!
