Jared recommends Nanette Mosby

Nanette did a great job providing feedback and comps to help us list our home appropriately and advocated on our behalf throughout negotiations. It was a smooth process and felt we were in great hands throughout. I would certainly recommend Nanette if you are looking for a great realtor.

During the difficult time of the passing of my sister, she was a harbinger that made the process of selling my sister's house as simple as possible.

Call Nanette today! You wont regret it.

Corey A recommends Laura Kelso

Laura helped me purchase my second home. She took the time to get to know me and my preferences to help me in the search. Her attention to detail and thoroughness made all the difference - With Laura's guidance, I was able to find the perfect home! She is exactly the type of realtor I wish I had as a first-time buyer, and I'm so grateful to have had her help this time around.

Caleb Allen recommends Austin Weir


Austin did a fantastic job with helping me get a house! He and I have been friends for a while, so I already had faith in him. It was really random honestly; I was just on MLS at 8 in the morning then I wrote him a message asking what I should offer on this particular house. The rest is history. Thank you Austin, for all of your genuinely hard work! Thank you for installing the hand-rail, and for fixing up the garage. Thank you for being available either call or text.

Nanette is extremely knowledgeable and professional! She truly cares about you and wants to find the best home that meets your needs. I can't say enough about how responsive she was, and how we felt supported every step of the way. It was a pleasure finding our forever home with her.

Pete LaBelle recommends Tom Smolinski

Real Estate client

Tom helped us thru the process of finding a new home with some unique specifications, then to sell our current house in record time. He was very business like thru the whole transaction, and took a lot of his time showing properties around Michigan. When it came to the reams of paperwork required to buy & sell a house, instead of a face-to-face meeting, where many things would get forgotten about after we walked out the door, he elects to do a video presentation describing all of these form and e-mail it to us. Initially, I thought it kinda weird, but later, realized that I could go back to that presentation and listen to it several times to reinforce what he was talking about. Pretty cool use of technology.

When it came time to sell our current house, an aggressive plan was formulated and the house was sold in record time, at more than we imagined we could get from the sale.

I highly recommend Tom to anyone considering the buying/selling home adventure !

Dental Assistant

I have worked with Laura to sell our first home , and purchase our second, such a great Realtor and person. Closing on our second house came with plenty of roadblocks , all handled exceptionally well. A tough deal to close , all out of a buyer and realtors control and Laura made it happen. We are now months into a perfect for us house !

Cheri Reynhout McKay recommends Laura Kelso


Laura was proactive in helping to get my home ready for sale. She was hands on, helping physically with our list of things to do.

Laura was aggressive in the sell of our home. I received more than I planned on getting for our home. We left for Florida soon after we entered the market and Laura kept us informed daily until we sold. Any thing that I couldn’t physically do from so many miles away, she took care of, making the sale easy, even when we were not around!

I am eager to give a high recommendation for Laura and would go with Laura again if the need arises

Tom was knowledgeable and helped us in every step along the way of our home purchase. In this crazy and unpredictable real estate market, it was wonderful to have someone we trusted to represent us, especially when we are new to the area. In addition to being a great real estate agent, Tom is just a wonderful human being and it was a pleasure to work with him. Thanks so much, Tom!

David DeBoer recommends Laura Kelso

We have worked with Laura through both the sale and purchase of multiple properties and we have been thrilled with Laura's expertise along the way. I am always amazed with the amount of effort she puts into each of her listings. Even though she is encredibly busy, you would never know it based on how much time she devotes to each of her clients throughout the selling/buying process. Laura takes the time to make sure each house she sells is presented very well, she does an amazing job helping with the staging process, and the photographs always turn out beautifully.

On top of all that, she communicates very well. Whether through a call, text, or email, she is always available to answer any questions and offer input/suggestions along the way.

We can't recommend Laura enough, and we hope you will consider working with her the next time you are in need of a great real estate agent!

Rick Bennett recommends Laura Kelso


When we decided to sell our home of 25 years, there were so many things to consider. The mental and physical details were numerous but so were the emotional bits and pieces. We knew we needed someone who would be 100% invested with us and Laura was that agent. She put as much effort into the process as we did including helping to paint our kitchen! Her professionalism was a continuous source of peace for us in the process and we were greatly blessed with her skillset and determination. You will be thrilled with Laura at your side as you move with confidence.

Paul Henneberry recommends Laura Kelso

A true “senior specialist”. Great positive energy and personality. She took our hand on day one and helped us through the entire process from decluddering our 40 year home to finding our beautiful new condo. She got our home “show ready” with her insight and connections with contractors. Not only is Laura a great realator, but a great person, and best yet, she sold our home for well over asking price??

Cheryl McKay recommends Laura Kelso

Laura was a partner with us in the selling of our home from day one! She came to our home and walked through with a positive attitude. Laura gave us some recommendations (mostly painting) in order to have our home turn-key ready for a buyer.

Laura had many suggestions for how to sell with a pro-active approach. We felt ahead of the game from the get-go!

Once we put the home on the market, we moved to Florida. Laura kept us updated, almost day-to-day, and we felt comfortable about being hundreds of miles away throughout the process.

The entire selling process, from putting the house on market to signing the final closing papers, took 2 was quick and easy because we had Laura on our team! We signed at our table in Florida and received our profit 2 days later!

I would highly recommend Laura as a realtor! We received more than we expected in the sell of our home and walked away with smiles!

Sarah Sutliffe recommends Laura Kelso

Laura is an amazing realtor. She worked hard to find me the right house. Laura spent extra time with me and was patient with my indecisiveness. She helped me see how a good structure was the most important as the cosmetic can be changed.

Kathy Wenzel recommends Laura Kelso

I recently moved from Northern MI to the Grand Rapids area. With a hot housing market, I needed short-term housing until I found a home. Laura was able to provide a solution for my short-term needs, and she kept at it until we found a great home in my desired neighborhood.

Overall a great experience.

IT Educational Specialist

Whether you are selling or buying a home, I would highly recommend Laura. She is knowledgeable of the West Michigan area, takes time to research, offers many options, and she genuinely listens to her clients. I have never seen anyone hustle the way she does. Laura will go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable with every decision. She made the process so easy, and dealing with sellers, builders, banks, and suppliers is not easy. Do yourself a huge favor and hire Laura Kelso. You will not be sorry.

The level of professionalism and personal consideration that Laura provides is simply stellar. The sale of our home could not have been placed in better hands. Laura's ability to leave you in complete peace about your move is a welcome respite in a world where customer service is not always a main priority. If you are considering the selling of your home, you will be delighted that you chose Laura Kelso.

Kevin Stein recommends Tom Smolinski

I used Tom and NexHome Champions to sell a commercial property in Holland, Michigan. Tom's expertise made the process incredibly simple for me. I chose Tom because of his honesty, kindness, and overall great character. It also helped that he has a tremendous track record of success. I had no problem trusting Tom's recommendations and I knew he always had my best interest in mind. Tom marketed my property very well. He put together a 3D virtual walkthrough of the property which showed it in its best light. He coordinated with buying agents in a timely manner and kept me updated on all showings along with the feedback. Tom's thoroughness and excellence in marketing my property resulted in an acceptable offer in less than a month. The deal was closed very soon after. I highly recommend Tom and NextHome Champions for anyone looking to buy and/or sell a residence, land, or commercial property.

We are so happy we went with Laura when we decided it was time to move to a condominium. She has had much experience in the selling of condos, and proved it with us in a big way when she found the perfect one for us, in the location and price range we had hoped for.

Laura is a tireless, honorable, and straightforward professional, with a great personality, who is willing to put in as many hours necessary to enable her clients to find the perfect home they’re looking for.

We could not be happier with the work Laura did for us, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home of any kind!
