I have a two part mission as a Realtor to serve you. First, is to provide you with information for all your West Michigan Real Estate needs so you can make the best informed decisions to buy or sell.
Get to know Bob DeRose
I am originally from Hoffman Estates, IL, a northwest suburb of Chicago, IL. I moved to Michigan in 1991 to attend Western Michigan University where I earned a BS from the College of Engineering. I hace lived and worked across West Michigan working as a manufacturing/project engineer for the automotive and furniture industries.
In 2001, I began rehabbing homes and became a rental property owner forming several LLC's with and without partners. I am a member of the Kent County Rental Property Owners Association.
I have lived in Kalamazoo, Holland, Battle Creek, Grand Rapids and now in Muskegon. I am very familiar with West Michigan, which has helped me sell and list properties throughout the region. I now live with my loving wife, Kelly and daughter, in the Muskegon area.
As Michigan’s manufacturing base changed, I took the opportunity to earn his Michigan State Real Estate License, and I am now a Realtor ® with Greenridge Realty in Muskegon. As a Realtor ®, I have continued my real estate education with the following classes Residential Relocation, Landlord-Tenant Law, EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting, Rehab and Flipping for Profit, and earned a e-Pro Certification from the National Association of Realtors. I am currently working on a MBA with GVSU and a ABR cert with REBAC.
I enjoy working with investors and first time home buyers.
