My Town: How to find and hire the “get it done" agent

My Town: How to find and hire the “get it done" agent

If you are considering selling your home, finding the right real estate agent is critical.

You want to find the “get it done” agent in your area – the type of agent that lives and breathes real estate and has an intimate knowledge not just of your neighborhood but also with the surrounding community.  This agent will leverage his or her knowledge and expertise to maximize the sales price and educate prospective buyers on why your home and community is the right place for them. 

Finding the "get it done" agent takes a little investment on your part,  but the payoff is huge.  You deserve a high level of service, investment and communication from the agent representing your most valuable asset – your home.  When you hire an agent they become a unique contractual extension of you, so you need to make sure the fit is right.

Classic cars fill 28th Street for Metro Cruise


KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM)—This weekend, 28th Street is the place to be to see a lot of vintage wheels.

This is the 10th year for the 28th Street Metro Cruise, which brings classic cars and auto lovers to the busy corridor each summer. The celebration featuring music, displays and vendors stretches from Grandville to Cascade Township. It officially kicked off at Rogers Plaza in Wyoming at 4 p.m. Friday and runs through Saturday.

Some attendees this year are Leon and Bryce. There's an age difference between them -- Leon is 70, and Bryce is 22 -- but they're members of a car collector group and share a passion for automobiles. Their group is shrinking, and they say some members have aged out, while the younger generation seems less interested in cars.

"People are just looking at cars as just another thing that you have," Bryce said. He says it's key to foster an appreciation of car culture.
