    Pros

    Focused on relocating back to Michigan, concentrating on Grand Rapids. Home has been listed, and have organized to move in a reasonable time frame.

    Cons

    House has not sold yet since it's only been two days on the market. House is priced within range, just have no control over this aspect.

    Advice to Management

    I am very versatile, and have an extensive background in business complimented with an extensive educational background. I am an instructor at heart, prefer to assist in the education of target subjects, and have a passion for helping all who cross my path.
