"I want to start this review off by saying what you may have heard about real estate agents being pushy and out to make a quick sale are true, with few exceptions. The exception my wife and I found was with our agent, Doren. It was apparent during our first meeting with Doren that she was different from the typical agent horror story. Through the whole process which lasted longer than anticipated (Months of searching) she was never pushy, never complained, always encouraging and willing to look at as many houses as it took. The unique thing about Doren is that she actually cares if you find the right house and was willing to point out concerns that we missed, even if it meant going longer without a sale. The genuineness and compassion from her is a blessing when you’re making such a momentous decision such as buying your home. I can say with a strong conviction that Doren really enjoys her job and has a passion for it. I can honestly say that I would recommend her to anyone and if we are ever looking to sell/buy again I will only consider using her, as I want someone who is in it for me and not just making money. If you want someone who is only looking out for their checkbook, then Doren isn’t the right agent for you. However if you want someone who is caring, passionate, and great at what they do, then Doren is who you want on your side"

"Choosing Doren was the smartest choice we made in the whole crazy home buying process! She talked us though the whole thing- made it very easy for us to understand. Doren was even able to get us our dream house for less then asking price, with cash back at closing in one of the worse markets for buyers in years! I cannot say enough good things about her!"
- Wallace, Grand Rapids, MI
"What do you say about the person who made all your dreams come true? She listened not only to what we wanted, but our dreams for the future.

Super professional and personable, an extremely hard worker."

"Doren is one sharp realtor. She knows a lot about real estate and is not afraid to get advice or counsel in areas of new experiences. She is determined and maintains a pleasant, encouraging and helpful attitude and support no matter the ups and downs of the process. She will not disappoint!"
- Cegelis, Grand Rapids, MI
"Doren was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Not only that, but she took the time to get to know me and my wants in a house. She was patient as I was selective and together we looked at 20+ houses. Never did I feel pressure from her to pick a specific house. Once I found my house, she walked me through the process from making the offer to close. I would highly recommend her to anyone (and already have)"
- Worth, Grand Rapids, MI
"Doren was very willing to go the extra mile for us. She even showed properties to our daughter and family in our absence. We were from out of town and Doren's phone calls, emails and updates kept us in the loop and very connected though out the entire process! She is an up and coming professional and we would recommend her to anyone in the area, she will make it happen!!"
- Allen, Walker, MI
"If you are looking for a professional, courteous, helpful, knowledgeable Realtor, Doren is the right fit for you! We had a home that we tried 6 different times to sell and had on the market for a total of over 2 years and Doren had it sold and closed within 2 months! She has amazing people skills, a wonderful personality, is two steps ahead on every part of the process and gives solid advice. She is friendly, cares about her clients and is passionate about the home buying & selling process. I highly recommend her!"
- Bowerman, Grand Rapids, MI
"Doren was a pleasure to work with. The whole process was extremely fast. She fostered and facilitated great communication with all parties involved including the lenders. She spent time on a holiday to drive to Lansing and arranged with the owners a viewing of the house so that my wife could see the property who was not living in the state at the time. She was great in setting up timely inspections after the offer was accepted. I would immediately hire Doren with any other needs I had."
- Colley, Lansing, MI
"We loved working with Doren! She was super nice, professional, and personal. She really understood what we wanted and we could tell that she worked really hard to find us our home. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a house in Grand Rapids. We had a really enjoyable time throughout the entire process thanks to Doren!!"
