Looking for a House? Before You Do Anything Else, You Need to Find a Good Realtor

The first time my husband and I began looking for a house in Michigan, we were living out of state. I was pregnant and working full time, and, in what I look back on as a true test of our marriage, I sent my husband to house-hunt on his own. This was just before FaceTime, so I took a lot on faith.

The truth is that I had no idea what to tell him to look for. I didn’t really know what I wanted in a house. That’s when I learned the most important rule of house-buying: find a good realtor.

Romanowski Realtors Know West Michigan

Janet, Katie, and Tom make up the hard-working Romanowski team. They live and work in the heart of West Michigan because, well, it’s their favorite place to be!

These agents take great joy in taking the stress out of the home buying and selling experience. They pride themselves on working tirelessly for their clients; and clients have nothing but great things to say about Romanowski Homes.

“My family and I needed a home in a hurry. [Janet Romanowski] was fantastic! She cares about putting people in the right home where they will be happy…. she is genuine and a pleasure to be around,” says one client. 

Even if you are going in completely blind (remember, I know what that’s like!), the Realtors at Romanowski Homes will take the time to get to know you. You will quickly learn that they always have your best interests at heart.

From the best schools to the hottest restaurants and the trendiest farmer’s markets, Janet, Katie, and Tom know how to find the perfect location for you.
