I'm a Portage native having been born and raised in the local area. My youth was filled with extra-curricular activities and organizations centered around school, family and athletics (mainly soccer).

During the summer breaks of high school & the first few years of college, I worked as a closing agent at Metropolitan Title Company. The last few years of college I worked as a Real Estate Assistant.

– Corey & Megan Scott, Portage, MI
“Wayne sold my parents their home that they’ve lived in for over 16 years, and was so helpful when I started looking at homes. Being a first time buyer, Wayne and Wendy were very patient as I searched for the right home, and very insightful for what to look out for. They referred me to an excellent loan officer, and am so grateful they were my REALTORS®!”
– Stephanie Andrews, Vicksburg, MI
