Integrity, honesty, and precision are part of his everyday carry. Whether building new relationships, providing tailored advice, or negotiating optimal outcomes, Travis’ warm personality and sharp work ethic continually exceed expectations.
Travis realized his passion for people after several years behind the wheel of a tow truck and considerable time building customer care departments for various companies. His West Coast employers were significantly refined by importing Travis’ Midwestern standards of hospitality and courtesy. His devotion to real estate was kindled after witnessing several harmonious transactions closed by his mother-in-law and, more importantly, ignited by the constructive conversations between the two as Travis experienced the intricacies of home sales. These behind-the-scenes experiences showed Travis a career with which his dedication to education, communication, and progress could be employed for the community.
With his future-facing ideas and his partners’ keen eye, Travis markets for tomorrow. Together they provide an unparalleled level of service and detail. Their connections to local contractors, inspectors, and lenders ensure an efficient, educational, and coordinated process.
Travis was raised in Rockford, but is no stranger to the moving process. Having spent two years in Seattle and two years in the San Francisco Bay Area, Travis can make your transitions—near or far—effortless and logical. His time spent throughout the country have built a robust, nationwide network of contacts and mentors.
From a young age, Travis’ mother raised a beachgoer. Their shared love for Michigan’s sandy shores has made Travis a Lakeshore aficionado. His father’s admiration for a quiet forest was also handed down to Travis. In his spare time, you can expect to find him slowly foraging the dense forests between Allegan and Saugatuck, or in Pentwater, soaking up the sun and perusing the crammed shelves of one of many antique stores.
You may also encounter Travis moseying around the sidewalks with Rhys, his little golden chihuahua. Though Rhys is a bit of a homebody, he springs into action at the sound of a jingling leash. Travis’ affection for four-legged friends began when his father surprised him with the adoption of a Golden Retriever, Max. It wasn’t long before Travis and his mother took home the family’s first cat, Oreo. Since then, Travis has advocated for and contributed to various shelters and rescues, including Crash’s Landing & Big Sid’s Sanctuary and the Animal Rescue Coalition of Mecosta County.
If there’s any one thing which Travis’ Dutch roots have taught him, it’s to never turn down a good deal, even if that deal needs a bit of fabrication! He lives for garage sale season, and always brakes for bargains spotted from the roadside. You might also spot him wandering every aisle of your local TJ Maxx or Homegoods, hunting hidden treasures and fabulous finds. If there is a Goodwill or other thrift store between him and home, you can bet Travis will take the long way. Instinctive and artful negotiation skills are key to his strongly-written contracts.
As a Realtor®, Travis’ first priority is to make his clients happy. He listens to clients’ wants and needs to achieve the best outcome in every transaction, and he strives to ensure that the buying or selling process is fun, easy, and stress-free. His clients can count on him any time of day, no matter the question or concern. Whether you’re wondering where to find the best Hefeweizen in West Michigan, where to head “Up North” this summer, or how to improve your quality of life in this Winter Wonderland, you will receive Travis’ undivided attention.
