    Rich & Louise gave Mitch 5 stars out of 5
    This was our third house transaction with Mitch and Lynne. Each time their advice and knowledge have been spot on. Mitch is comfortably confident in the entire process, which is not only a sign of experience, but good results.

    Mitch and Lynn have helped us sell and move twice (once from California). They are very knowledgeable and kept us informed every step of the way. We enjoy working with them, and look forward to future opportunities.

    Mitch and Lynne are absolutely the BEST. My husband and I first met them when we rented a home from them when we first moved to Grand Rapids. Subsequently, they helped us purchase our dream home. Most recently, they helped us sell that home, as we were moving across the state for work. They are honest, trustworthy, and treated us like family. We felt supported throughout the whole process of selling our home, and they clearly communicated everything we needed to do and what to expect. They listened to our needs and concerns and addressed all of them so that we felt completely comfortable with the whole process. They have an unparalleled knowledge of the Grand Rapids area and real estate, and provided us with great advice on the pricing of our home, and gave us good insights into the market and how to understand and accept an offer. They spent time with us, walked around our home, and helped us stage the house in an optimal fashion for photos and showings. After we sold our home, they also went above and beyond- really anything we needed to ensure a smooth transition of our home to the new buyers. This was even more appreciated because we were splitting time between our new home across the state and Grand Rapids. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mitch and Lynne, and truly think you could not find anyone more kind, honest, trustworthy and skilled. We have worked with them as renters, as buyers, and now as sellers, and every experience has been exceptional. We are truly grateful to have met them and worked with them and think that they are the absolute best choice for all of your real estate needs in Grand Rapids!

    Mitch and Lynne were fantastic throughout the whole house buying process! As a first time home buyer in the current market it can be a little daunting however Mitch made the process extremely simple and put us at ease during our whole experience. We are very fortunate to have been able to work with Mitch and could not recommend him more! For anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy realtor, look no further than Mitch!

    We closed our home with Mitch and then closed on our new house THE SAME DAY and everything went smooth as silk! No stress! We could not be pleased more with the results of how everything turned out! Thank you for making our dream come true! 5 stars!

    Fred & Shawn gave Mitch 5 stars out of 5
    Mitch and Lynne provided great service for us, especially selling our home during the virus stay at home order. Mitch embraced the opportunity to sell our home virtually, listing our home on a number of websites as his office has the latest technology to broadcast listings. Of several interested buyers, one from out of state actually made an offer on the home after a Zoom video walkthrough that Mitch set up and we conducted. Unfortunately, an over zealous home inspector scared off the buyers. Always make certain to have a home inspector that is a member of The American Society of Home Inspectors:https://www.homeinspector.org. Mitch assured us that our home would sell and the day the stay at home order was lifted, we had interested buyers walk through our home. Two days later we had an offer. Mitch and his team were there for us during one of the worst periods to sell a home and they came through for us. He will do that for you as well.

    Times were difficult when we listed the house for sale. It was during the holidays which can be hard enough but Mitch and his wife Lynne were great to work with. Meet us at the house, knowing that I was going to meet up with another realtor as well that week before making a determination which way to go. They advised us of something's we should do as well as what wasn't needed plus they left the paperwork with me knowing a determination was pending. At any rate - working with them went well. They listened as well as advised through the process. The market was tough but we held out , stayed focused and had great results with the sale being completed. Very happy with my decision to list with Mitch.

    We deeply appreciated having Mitch as our landlord. He is very responsive to any needs. He is also very personable. When the pandemic occurred, he was quick to phone us and allow us to leave the rental. This demonstration of generosity will not be forgotten. We also appreciated the home we rented. After looking at many houses, we walked into his rental and immediately knew it was the one! Go with Mitch as your realtor! You won't be disappointed!

    Mitch helped us buy a condo in 10 days! His negotiating skills truly impressed us and saved us a significant sum. He was readily available and patient with our questions and particularly our concerns over a wire transfer of funds from another state. We highly recommend him.

    I can't recommend Mitch enough, from the prompt communications to the spot on knowledge of the market in the area to the above and beyond the sale relationship. Quite often help and advice on matters outside real estate made his input incredibly valuable. Do your family a favor, trust the experience and knowledge he has to offer. One of the smartest decisions I've ever made.

    I'd only been in my home for a year when an opportunity with work prompted a move out of state. Mitch and Lynne met with me and really made me feel comfortable with the process. They did a great job of marketing the home and also in offering suggestions to help get it sold as fast as possible. The communication throughout the process was great and they were very responsive to any of my questions or concerns. I'd definitely recommend Mitch to anyone that needs a great realtor.

    Thank you Mitch, for everything you did for our family when we relocated from Oregon to West Michigan. We expected significant challenges and a lot of stress when trying to find a house as winter approached, especially in an area that was completely foreign to us. But none of that became reality while working with you. You made the entire process easy, and ensured that we knew everything we needed to about each house that we stepped into. And when it came time to make the offer on our home (which was for-sale-by-owner), you were able to get us a better deal than we expected. Now that we have abruptly relocated to Wisconsin to be closer to family as we raise a family of our own, we knew right away that we wanted your guidance and opinion for what Realtor we should work with as we begin our search for a home in Green Bay. Thank you for your diligence and patience with us back in 2014, your persistence with our lender and title company to get the deal done quickly, making us feel a part of the Cripe family (we love your cards and newsletters), and for your continued guidance and support 5 years later as we move out of state.

    Working with Mitch and his wife was a great experience. Our household was growing on top of having to relocate and he had tremendous patience with us. He didn't rush us knowing our situation and told us that he was ready when we were. He kept us informed on the current market which ultimately paid off for us as we got several offers over asking price. We did a walk-thru prior to putting the home up for sale and he gave us his opinion on what we should work on. We ended up investing additional cash into the home but it again paid off thanks to his expertise. My wife used Mitch to purchase the same home that he sold for us 6+ years later. I would consider Mitch our realtor for life. We appreciate all your efforts in making the selling of our home and acquiring our vacant lot to build a great experience.

    From taking my first phone call during the holidays, showing me multiple houses on New Year's Day, researching homes and prices of improvements I would need to make, and giving tips/hints along the way -- Mitch was a pleasure to work with and exceeded every expectation I had of a realtor.

    We were extremely pleased to work with both Mitch & Lynne Cripe when purchasing our Condo. They both exhibit a high level of Real Estate knowledge & enthusiasm. They responded to our questions or concerns very quickly and never pressured us with sales pitches. Mitch always did his homework on what was a good offer, he never tried to get us to over pay. This made us very comfortable working with them, especially when the market was booming. We always felt Mitch & Lynne was working with us not just for us. We wished Mitch & Lynne would have listed our house that we sold. Thanks Mitch & Lynne.

    Mitch Cripe and his wife Lynne were awesome to work with in helping my son find his first home. We appreciated his honesty, time spent with us, knowledge of homes, and his guidance in keeping everything moving quickly with the bank, homeowner and the buyer (my son). Excellent communication skills. Kept my son on top of what was happening from the beginning to end of sale. I definitely would recommend Mitch and his wife Lynne when looking for a new home.

    Mitch and Lynne did a fabulous job in helping us transition from the east side of Michigan. When you hire Mitch you also get Lynne - a bonus - and they both help you figure out your need and location. Once done, then they are great at scouring the area for opportunities while also sharing with you information about that area and great places to go and visit once you move in. They also have access to those with financing options. We highly recommend them!

    My husband and I went through Mitch when we purchased our condo in Caledonia. We thought his service and knowledge was outstanding. He always made himself available for us. I would recommend him to my friends and family if they ever need a good outstanding realtor.

    Bryce gave Mitch 5 stars out of 5
    Mitch was so helpful and insightful along the process of finding and purchasing my first home. He listened to my needs and found several options in the various target areas I provided him. Mitch educated me on what to look out for when touring homes and also provided insights relating to the utilities/features of various homes we toured before I found my ideal fit. As a first time buyer there were many things I didn't know to look for in each home and Mitch made sure to educate me on what to lookout for when touring homes. Mitch is very honest and upfront and treats you like you are family. I would highly recommend working with Mitch and look forward to working with him again when the time comes.

    Mitch is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and trends. He has an extensive contact list of experts ranging from finance/loans to home maintenance and repair/construction. I have used his services on several transactions on both the sale and purchase side and have been completely satisfied with the results. He gives good advice and has an excellent sense of current market conditions. I trust him completely to put my interests first in any real estate transaction.

    Amanda gave Mitch 5 stars out of 5
    Mitch represented me and my husband throughout our first home purchase. At the time, we lived in Chicago with plans of relocating to Grand Rapids, and houses were selling faster than they were listed. He was incredibly helpful and responsive, even meeting us at a home last minute on a Sunday when we tried to act quickly on what looked like a good buy. Ultimately, we ended up building a home and Mitch guided us every step of the way, checking in on the progress and sending photos, as well as helping us with the final walk throughs and touch ups. We are so thankful for his expertise and guidance throughout our first home building/buying process and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for their next home!

    We had the pleasure of working with Mitch to buy and sell our first home and also to build our new home. He was so knowledgeable which was super helpful when we were young newlyweds and had no idea how to buy a house. He is amazing at negotiating and always gets you the best price. Im pretty picky and he showed us a ton of houses until we found the one! I would (and do) reccomend him to everyone I know. He's the absolute best!

    Mitch is probably the hardest working realtor I have ever met. He is extremely loyal and treats you like family. He covers every detail from beginning to end and goes above and beyond to make sure you are 100% satisfied. We have used Mitch several times in the last few years to buy or sell and would definitely recommend him to all of our friends.

    My husband and I worked with Mitch to purchase 2 different homes and really can't say enough good things about him. He is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). He answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Mitch made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend him. Plus you will gain a great friend in the process!

    Mitch and Lynne Cripe have worked as a dynamic team for as long as we've known them. They know the Greater Grand Rapids area like the back of their hand and so when it was time for us to select a realtor whom we trusted to sell our family home, we called Mitch. Mitch and Lynne put together an awesome brochure of our home which included professional photos and video to help advertise as well as using several websites to get our home out there to prospective buyers, no detail was left behind. The Cripe's made a point of being in touch to give us feedback on every openhouse they had and whenever there was a showing. We would not hesitate to hire them again...top notch realtors and wonderful people and a dynamic team!

    If you choose Mitch as your realtor, you have made the best choice in the process of either selling or buying your home. Mitch's knowledge of the market is what sets him apart from the others. I trust Mitch because he will market my home (selling) at a price that gives me a better chance of multiple offers and in the end, a higher price. Through the whole process , whether selling or buying, you will always have the latest information. Your first best step step in maximizing your real estate investment s choosing Mitch as your realtor.

    We interviewed several realtors before meeting Mitch. Between buying and selling homes, we're going on our 4th home utilizing him. We wouldn't go with anyone else! He's the only realtor we've found that truly pays attention to our home needs for our family. He's so responsive to our calls, texts and emails. We're very choosy homebuyers and we will never work with anyone but him. . We just purchased a lake house that he found for us! He knew what our price range was and sent us houses everyday for us to look at (like I said, we're very choosy and have looked at a great deal of properties). He made us feel like we were his only clients- and that is key for us! And he found us our new home! We're so excited and so thankful we found Mitch!
