Keller Williams Opens Downtown Office
Keller Williams Realty has opened a new sales office in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids.
Located at 15 Ionia Ave. NW, southeast of Van Andel Arena, the office is open on a walk-in and appointment basis. Agents offer in-depth knowledge of urban living options for buyers, as well as sales and marketing expertise for sellers.
“Exciting changes have been occurring in the downtown residential market the past couple years, and we’re seeing an increased demand for information,” said Jon Jackson, Keller Williams Realty president.
“Our downtown office will have it all: information about all the condo projects currently in the works, all the upcoming projects and their timelines, expert knowledge of urban neighborhoods such as Heritage and Cherry Hill, Eastown, Fairmount Square, East Hills, Belknap Lookout, West Grand, Alger Heights, and more.”
Diane Griffin, a top-producing sales agent with Keller Williams and the listing agent for Second Story Properties’ luxury condominiums, The Fitzgerald, spearheaded the idea for the downtown office and was the first to make the move.
“Working with Keller Williams and Sam Cummings, principal of Second Story Properties, to establish a location for the urban-focused sales that Grand Rapids is craving is thrilling for all of us,” Griffin said. “When grand visions and excellent reputations join forces, great things happen.”
Downtown-focused and experienced agents Amy Bernhard and Melissa Allen were next to follow.
“Keller Williams shared my vision of creating a downtown presence early on,” Bernhard said. “Today’s urban living buyers want to build relationships with agents who can help them sift through all the options to find the one that’s right for them. And sellers want relationships with the agents who have the buyers. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
Keller Williams Realty has offices in Cascade Township and Grand Haven, with a total of 160 agents and approximately $300 million in annual sales volume.
