FSBO converted to a new listing! Entering my 40th year of real estate and still going strong!! I thoroughly enjoy this business. Thank you to all my friends and clients for placing your confidence and trust in me.

Jason & Tina Freese Decker

CEO of Spectrum

   We were impressed with John's vast knowledge of the Grand Rapids real estate market. His extensive experience and close attention to detail made our home purchase a pleasant one. John's sound guidance through the entire process confirmed that we made the right choice in working with him.   

Richard & Jennifer Keyes

President of Meijer

   John was wonderful to work with. He was knowledgeable about the real estate market and very professional. He and his staff kept us updated every step of the way and made purchasing a home easy. Working with John was a pleasure.   

Steve Donker

   I really appreciated John's positive approach. He was confident and reassuring we could list and sell for a price I was comfortable with. It sold, thanks again John.   

Brian Cole

President - Sightline Display

   We have worked with John Postma both when we were selling and buying our home. He worked diligently to get the best price for the home we sold. His experience definitely made a difference as we worked through the details of the sale. His knowledge of building, construction and developments benefited us greatly in our purchase of our new construction. He was right there beside us as unexpected situations arose and he handled everything in the most professional manner. I would highly recommend John for any of your real estate needs.   

Marjorie & Charles VandenBerg

PGA Thousand Oaks Golf Club

   After six months with another company and no offers (although we dropped the price), we hired John Postma to sell our home. We dropped the price again on John's recommendation and within nine days, we had a full-price offer from the first people who looked at it. We were more than impressed with John's pro-activeness during the selling process and equally impressed with how smoothly we experienced the closing process. I would hire John again without any reservations...thank you, John!

Brian & Nancy Rhodes

General Manager- Purgatory Golf Club

   We needed to get our home sold quickly as we were moving out of state. John was exactly the kind of agent we were looking for to get the job done. With his extensive knowledge of the area and his professionalism, I am more than willing to recommend his services to anyone looking for a Realtor with experience and results. I was totally taken aback with John's quick responses to all of my inquiries.   

Mark Saur

President Old Orchard Brands, LLC

   We have done several transactions with John over the last 10 years. He has worked with us during the selling and purchasing of several homes. As the transactions proceeded, he worked side by side with us, advising us and explaining the difficult real estate world. He is always willing to go the extra mile for his clients. We have found him to be well educated on values and giving a number that will move the property. He and his staff tend to all the details that arise to get the deal done. His knowledge of the Grand Rapids area is superb and his understanding of home building is priceless. He is relentless in getting the sale closed!   

Bob Boverhof

Manager Arbor Gage & Tooling

   I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your most excellent service and work in negotiating and completing the purchase of the property at 2714 Middleboro. Your assistant also was most helpful in expediting everything very smoothly. From the evening we first looked at the home with you, to the closing last Friday, this was by far the most professionally handled real estate transaction I have ever been involved with. It is not a surprise that you are amongst the top-producing agents around. Additionally, your recommendation of Jerry Kamerman to handle the mortgage application process proved to be advice well taken. The professionalism and attention to detail of Jerry and his assistant Carol was likewise - without equal. I couldn't have been more satisfied and we look forward to moving to our new residence.

Jurgen Luders

Neurosurgeon Spectrum Health

   I have worked with John Postma in the purchase and selling of 3 homes. The questions and concerns we had were always immediately addressed. My schedule as a surgeon made it very difficult. His incredible availability and thorough knowledge and understanding of the Grand Rapids Real Estate market are unsurpassed. His negotiations skills are phenomenal and he uses those skills in order to bring the sale to a closure. His follow up and detail were unsurpassed in bringing the sale to successful and smooth close. No details were left undone. I would highly recommend him to any of my peers and/or friends.   

Mark G. Campbell - MD, MHA

President - Cancer & Hematology Centers of West Michigan

   John Postma has helped me buy and sell our personal home and has also helped me with our various corporate employee relocations. In selecting a real estate professional I desired: 1) an agent with the best knowledge of the product and market, 2) an agent with people and negotiating skills to represent me fully in the process, 3) an agent that would provide total honesty through the transaction and in his communications, 4) an agent with a sense of urgency and true focus on my listing, 5) an agent with organizational skills and John was the most organized person I knew in the business, 6)an agent that gets results! John is a true leader within his profession.

Jim Angell

CPA VanderPloeg, Bergakker, & Associates

   I have seen a good many "sold" signs around town with John Postma's name on them. As a result, I decided to contact John regarding the sale of my home. John was incredibly responsive and he had my home listed immediately. John suggested a couple of maintenance items that helped display my home in the best possible light. My home was listed on a Thursday and it was sold the following Tuesday for a price consistent with the subsequent appraisal. Clearly, John is respected in the industry and I believe this resulted in a quick and smooth transaction. The closing occurred without a hitch in 30 days. I would feel extremely confident in doing business with John in the future.   

Jerry Kamerman

Current: Dart Bank; Previous: Old National Bank

   With over 30 years of experience in mortgage lending, and having worked with literally hundreds of realtors in that time, I can unequivocally state that John Postma is one of the most capable realtors with whom I have had the privilege of doing business. His experience, professionalism, integrity, client focused attitude and ability to get things done are the attributes that make him a top agent to choose if you want to buy or sell a home. John's attention to detail, follow up, follow through and ability to think outside the box have allowed him to not only be one of the top agents in West Michigan, but in the entire nation for the last several years. When he says he'll "get it done" it's not just a phrase, it's a promise you can count on.   

Mike & Paula Koenes

Koenes Auto Body, Inc.

   John answered our questions quickly with expertise during the time we had property listed with him. He took care of details and provided frequent reports to us about activity on the property for sale. The sale went smoothly and was handled professionally.   


Lisa Stewart

   John is a true professional. He helped us navigate a tricky home sale in difficult circumstances and got the asking price for us. He was very fair and honest with all parties. He also helped me with the purchase of my new home and went above and beyond to help me get it. He is a realtor with a heart. I can't thank him enough for his kindness.
