The Mark Deering Team

Super amazing team. Went well above and beyond our expectations with the selling of our home. Provided an interior decorator to help with staging our home and a professional photographer. Thought his video walk throughs they do were a nice touch and enjoyed sharing them with friends and family. Stay in touch and helped us through the entire process. 5 stars for sure. Highly recommended. ~Nick

Even in this tough market, we had an awesome experience with Remax, the Deering Team, and especially our agent, Mike Bursley. As first time homebuyers, we really didn’t know too much starting out, but now we feel so prepared and knowledgeable, plus we have a house that we love - all thanks to Mike & the Deering team. They had our backs every step of the way and we couldn’t recommend them more! ~Chelsea

I bought my house with Mark’s team (worked with Kevin) in 2017. They were extremely helpful as a first time homebuyer. They did such a great job that I wanted to work with them when I decided to sell. Can’t recommend them highly enough. Professional, responsive, and good folks. ~Alex

Mark Deering has become a family friend through both buying property and selling a home. Mark has traveled with me for years looking for just the right place and giving me sound advice. I never felt pressured to make a hasty decision. His knowledge of the market proved valuable when selling our home. I had many questions and he answered each and every one. His team provided help throughout the sale of our home from staging to closing. I would recommend Mark and the Deering Team for their expertise in both buying and selling a home. ~Ausma

They helped us find our first and forever home! As first time home buyers, we were lead in the right direction with knowledgeable, professional people who had our best interest in mind. We looked at several properties, even the ones he knew we wouldn't like but we wanted to see. Helped us put in our best offer, in a timely manner. He even drove a hour north of Grand Rapids to show us homes in our area. If we were to decide to sell our house and look for another, we would 100% list and search with the Mark Deering team at RE/MAX of Grand Rapids! ~Brandi
