Residential real estate firm opens new HQ
A local residential real estate firm has a new 8,000-square-foot headquarters.
Keller Williams Grand Rapids North, a franchise of the international firm Keller Williams Realty, said this week it opened the space in Grand Rapids, at 3237 Platinum St. NE. The firm was previously based at 4949 Plainfield Ave. NE.
The new facility consists of offices, three conference rooms, a café, a training room and an outdoor entertaining deck.
The $1.8-million building is owned by an investor group and being leased by the firm.
KW Grand Rapids North will host a grand-opening for the new office at 4 p.m. on May 10.
Diane Griffin, operating principal, and Lisa Costanza, team leader, jointly own the franchise, which has 137 agents and seven support staff employees.
Griffin said she’s excited about the new office and proud of what Keller Williams Grand Rapids North has achieved so far.
Costanza is also proud of the growth and synergy that has developed within the office.
“We have a desirable culture and model for real estate agents that want to grow their businesses,” Costanza said.
The project broke ground a year ago.
Grand Rapids-based Paradigm Design designed the building.
Grand Rapids-based A.J. Veneklasen was the project’s contractor.
