Born and raised in beautiful West Michigan. Surrounded by real estate growing up, my mother was the first female Realtor on the Lakeshore and my first job was working for her. Later I married into the industry, my wife Jodi Holland is a seasoned professional full time Realtor in Michigan. Together we are Holland & Holland with 616 Realty LLC. We use the latest technology including Dotloop, Showingtime, RPR and Supra Ekey to name a few. We advertise our listings on over 400 websites.
My professional history consists of 38 years in the restaurant hospitality business. Working for Greek immigrants in the restaurant field taught me to dedicate myself to long hours and do a detailed job successfully. In the mid ’90s I opened Avalon Floral an upscale florist in Spring Lake, MI. which was awarded business of the year, The People Choice award 8 years in a row and Michigan Floral Associations best designers 2 years in a row.
My hobbies include restoring classic homes in the west Michigan area, bass fishing and volunteering for non profit organizations.
My civic activities have included being a Village Councilman, the Food and Beverage Director for the American Cancer Society and the BPOE Drug and Alcohol Awareness state chairman.
My life experiences have fostered in me the ability to interact with many different types of people and personalities on many different levels. My customer service background reminds me to always put my clients first. If this is the type of person you’d like working for you give me a call!
