    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    I love living in beautiful Fremont, Michigan, and for over 25 years I've been helping friends find their perfect home in the Newaygo County area. May I help you too? I especially enjoy helping First Time Buyers make the dream of owning their own home a reality.
    My husband, Barry and I have six grown children and fourteen grandchildren. We are active in our church and community through the Chamber of Commerce, art and health organizations.

    For the past 5 years we have had exchange students live with us during the school year, and we've been privileged to have young menstudents from China, Thailand, Mexico, Ecuador, Taiwan, and Vietnam join our family. We enjoy kayaking the beautiful lakes and rivers in our area. We also work together on building and remodeling projects and gardening.

    Jean was very prompt in getting back with us on listing our house. Whenever there were updates or changes, she notified us right away. We would definitely recommend her to anyone for buying or selling a home.

    Jean was amazing to work with. She listened to my concerns/dislikes of some houses we initially looked and and took that in to consideration as we when showing me future houses. She worked with my schedule to ensure I could see homes and quickly let me know about new homes I should see.

    Jean is a great realtor. We were buying our home while living in another state Jean provided a video walk through of the house as we found it online could not be there. We could only make one quick trip to see the home. Jean helped us at every step. she helped us coordinate schedules so that our inspector could be at the house when I was there. She arranged for the landscaper who had been caring for the property for many years to met with me while I was there and I was able to review home warranty options with her. After the inspection was done we needed estimates for two issues that had been identified. We asked if she could provide local contractors that we could contact. Jean used her local knowledge to assist us and was able to provide the contractors we selected with access for the estimates, gained seller approval to make the repairs and ultimately provided access for the contractors to perform the repairs. She helped us with good advice as we debated our offer and the follow up offer relating to the repairs needed for the property. There were so many challenges with the loan relating to the appraisal and getting information from the sellers. We were very frustrated as the issues seemed to be out of our control. Jean stayed amazingly calm and helped review the appraisal and confirmed errors. She guided us as we requested corrections to the appraisal which came very slowly. She worked with the selling agent to get the documentation from the sellers requested by the loan underwriters. We would have given up without her help. Even after we closed we were not able to be at the house and needed to provide access for home maintenance, Jean offered to continue to assist until we could get to the house. We cannot thank her enough for all she did to get us our dream retirement home. We strongly recommend Jean, she knows her business, the area and how to work through the process.

    Lindsay And Vonda gave Jean 5 stars out of 5
    We really enjoyed working with Jean! Her knowledge of the local area and expertise of the general real estate market helped us make informed decisions. One of the things I really appreciated about Jean was her laid back, but proactive approach to finding us that perfect property. She was sensitive to our approach in looking for real estate. We did not feel pushed into a ' better act now' mentality that one can feel with other agents or even other sales oriented services. When times of discouraged and losing hope of finding what we were looking for would arise, Jean's positive perspective and quiet confidence helped us persevere in finding just the right property! Thank you Jean!

    Jean is a top knotch realtor! She provided us with superb guidance, loyal service, and timely assistance. She made us feel confident and secure both as our property manager, and "buyer's agent".

    Jean was VERY helpful and attentive to our needs and wants as we looked for our lake front cottage. We loved her knowledge of the local lakes and always putting our needs in front of "making a commission" on a sale. She spent many hours and days showing us many homes and cottages over the past year. Never giving us any indication that we were bothering her or that she was spending too much time showing us these homes and cottages without purchasing anything. We were feeling guilty, but she always said she loved showing us these places. Because she lives on a lake her know knowledge was very important to find the PERFECT lake house for us! If you want someone to help you find your perfect place, we would highly recommend Jean.

    Jean Palmerton was a great agent to work with. She was very knowledgable of the property she showed us, and very patient about explaining aspects of the property, as well as the home buying process.
    Ray and Sandy gave Jean 5 stars out of 5
    Jean was efficient, easy to work with and knows how to get a deal done. As a business person I really appreciate the fact that she values my time.
    Ed gave Jean 5 stars out of 5
    Jean Palmerton and the staff at Coldwell were outstanding. I sold and purchased a home in 30 days. Unprepared for such a speedy transition, Jean walked me through every step from home prep to move out and utilities. Thank you for everything you do. Sincerely, Ed Haven

    Had a very good experience with Jean. We had a potentially difficult situation where she listed my house and was the buyers agent for the individuals who purchased the house. She was very professional and honest about the situation. She closed the deal , I think both sides were satisfied with the result.
    Alex and Jennifer gave Jean 5 stars out of 5
    Really enjoyed working with Jean never used a buying agent in the purchasing process but feel like it was a wise decision to use Jean.
    Nancy gave Jean 5 stars out of 5
    Jean is a great realtor! She took a lot of time to make sure she knew what was important to us so we could find that perfect home! Jean also took the time to follow up and made sure we were settling in after we moved in...awesome touch! We feel very comfortable in the community and in our home thanks to Jean and her dedication to helping people!
    Austin and Christine gave Jean 5 stars out of 5
    We recommend Jean to everyone we know! We bought and sold our first house through her and she was amazing to work with. She is so knowledgeable of the area as well as the entire home buying and selling process. She has gone above and beyond for us on multiple occasions and we really cannot say enough good things about her!
