Gerald is very efficient and knowledgable. He has impeccable marketing skills that make him stand out from the vast number of realtors in the area. As the realtor for the builder of our new home we saw no reason to not use Gerald for our side as well. Also, He sold our other in home in 5 days! Gerald's team deserves acknowledgment too, outstanding assistant, best photographer etc!

My wife and I couldn't recommend Gerald more highly for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We were initially unsure whether we wanted to build a new home or buy an existing home. Gerald patiently explained the new construction process and set up multiple meetings with reputable builders to explore our options. In the end, the perfect existing home came on the market. We contacted Gerald with our interest in the home on a Friday at 6pm. Within an hour, he had set up a showing for the following day. We found ourselves in competition with other buyers, but it was Gerald who was able to utilize his talents to position our offer at the top. From inital consultation to closing, our journey lasted six months. During that time, we walked through numerous homes and met with multiple builders. Throughout the process, it was absolutely clear that our happiness was Gerald's number one priority. Furthermore, you can expect all communication to be direct, thoughtful and honest. In closing, I'd like to add that working with Gerald Feenstra means something. In casual conversation at open houses with other realtors, it was apparent that Gerald was well-connected with a sterling reputation. Our lending process was also made considerably easier as Gerald's credibility gave the lender peace of mind that a) our purchase price would be in line with the appraisal, and b) that the purchase agreement would go through without a hitch.

Our search for a home was very stressful until we found the right agent to work with. Gerald Feenstra made everything seem easy when it came to finding a home. He was able to explain the whole process in terms that we could understand. We will definitely be using his Team when we are ready to move again.

We called Gerald after he was recommended to us from a previous buyer that worked with him. We were trying to move quickly on a home for sale by owner that had a lot of activity and was potentially receiving another offer. We had another agent at the time but was very slow to act and would take his time getting back to us which was causing problems in the current market. Gerald met with us within a couple hours of our initial contact and closed the deal for us that night. He and Amy worked so hard for us in the month it took to close. My husband and I appreciated the constant contact we received from them and the way they worked with our mortgage lender to push the deal through to closing in the fastest manner possible. We were so happy to say that we could get into our new home 3 weeks before the arrival of our new baby! Thank you Gerald and Amy! Less ... More

As a first time home-buyer, my husband and I had to depend on someone who would walk us through al the steps and lead us in the right direction. Gerald was very clear, had our best interests in mind and was available throughout the entire process for whatever we needed. They say buying a home can be very stressful, but to be honest, the process has been quite enjoyable because of the work that Gerald put in with us. If you are a first-time home buyer, contact him. If you're not, then you should still contact him! He's fantastic! Less ... More

Gerald was very responsive once my house went on the market: he let me know the same day it went on the market and was able to schedule a tour of the house the very next day. Gerald knew the market well enough to provide suggestions on forming a competitive bid on the house. The process of buying the house and working through paperwork was very smooth and not at all stressful. I was pleased with Gerald's work and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realitor to buy a house.

Gerald was great as our buyer's agent! This house was our first house and he was extremely helpful in explaining the process and working with us to make it as smooth and easy as possible. His knowledge of the area and negotiating skills helped us secure a great deal in a good neighborhood. I can say that if/when we decide to sell this house, Gerald will be at the top of our list to call to be our listing agent. Thanks Gerald!

Gerald Feenstra is the GO TO real estate agent in the area! I could not have been more pleased with my experience listing with him. He worked diligently from the start, showing my home to a multitude of perspective buyers. Because of his hard work, my house was on and off the market in a very short period of time. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Feenstra was always professional and so very personable. As a first-time home seller, I most appreciated that he kept me well-informed and was always responding promptly to my questions. I will definitely do business with him again, and I highly encourage anyone listing a home or looking to purchase a home in the Grand Rapids area to do the same! Less ... More

Gerald Feenstra helped my wife and I find the house we wanted within our budget. We had to have bugged him at all hours of the day and night. He would respond with a quick and informative response. We looked online at over 100 houses he found in our budget in the region we asked. He also went with us to over 20 houses. Some homes were over 20 minutes away, and that never bothered him. He was always there with a smile. We highly recommend Gerald Feenstra for your real estate needs. We will definitely use him in the future! Less ... More

Purchased my first home with Gerald and it was a lot easier than I expected. Gerald was very helpful and quick to respond. I've attempted to purchase a home before with another realtor and it was very difficult to get a response or even a sense of seriousness. Gerald was knowledgeable and looked out for what I wanted. It was a pleasure purchasing a home with him and I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon him in the first place. Definitely recommend his services.

My wife and I couldn't have been more pleased to have had Gerald as our agent for the purchase of our first home. Gerald was always quick to respond and had all of the answers when it came to local knowledge. He took into account everything that was important to us and had only our best interest in mind in all of his recommendations. He was willing to work around our hectic schedule and was able to get us in to see our home virtually first before other buyers had the chance. His negotiating was able to get us the price we wanted for the home we wanted and 3-4 weeks later we are now moved in. Thank you Gerald for all your hard work and guidance through the process!

We met Gerald at a home that was not quite right for us but immediately had a list of other homes to see. After going through all the homes in the area, we decided to wait for the right one. We then found a "for sale by owner" home that was perfect for us. Gerald communicated with them and represented us perfectly as we navigated through the home buying experience and even dealt with an appraisal issue. It all came together and we are super happy. Make sure to call Gerald!

Gerald was very quick to respond when my wife and I contacted him about buying a home. His reference came from family friends so we knew that we could trust his reputation. Within a mater of days we had our list of houses and we were scheduled to tour all 5 houses in one fell swoop. We toured our new home on a Wednesday evening made our offer on Thursday morning and accepted a counter offer by Friday evening. To say that Gerald was on the spot would be understating the fact. He had to contact us while we were out of town to discuss the counter-offer and was instrumental in getting us into our new home. I have told several friends about his services and how he was on the spot with everything and I hope when they are in a position to buy again they will utilize his talents for their benefit. Less ...

I was very happy with Gerald's expertise and help as my fiance and I bought our first house. He was very honest in his opinion of the house whether he thought it was a decent house or whether he thought there was a better one out there for us. Gerald responded right away with us with getting in houses to look at and also when ever I had a question he answered it by end of day. I would recommend him to any first time buyers or a buyer who has bought many houses.

Gerald did an awesome job helping us find the right home. When we started out, we really didn?t know what we wanted in a house. Gerald worked extremely hard to set up all of our requested showings, and be available whenever we needed him to be. On top of that, he was very personable and genuinely fun to hang out with. As this was our first home buying experience, Gerald took the time to walk us through what a mortgage would really cost and to answer all of our questions. His guidance helped us narrow our search and led us to find our perfect house. We had a great, enjoyable experience and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home.
