Below are a few words from some of our recent clients. Please read on to get a feel for how you will receive the knowledge, honesty, and respect you deserve with the John Rice Real Estate Team:

 

My family and I were referred to John by my sister. ... I am not sure what we would have done without his help and guidance through both the selling and buying process...John is extremely professional, and you can tell that he loves his job and takes it very seriously. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

M&J Helms

John is an excellent realtor! He was very kind, honest, professional and thorough throughout the entire process. My house sold within 24 hours. I highly recommend John Rice if you are considering selling your home!

Rebecca P

We chose John as our realtor...(h)e came to the listing appointment incredibly well prepared, had some great suggestions on better staging the home and followed through on every commitment. Even more important, we had a full price offer the first day on the market and ended up selling the house for about $10k above list price. I know it's easy to be pleased with and recommend a realtor when you sell above list, but John was thorough, professional, accessible and generally pleasant to be around. I would highly recommend John and his team to anyone with real estate needs.

D&M Grimes

John is a very professional and thoughtful realtor! He has quickly become our family realtor and we have done several transactions with him. As a industry professional he always brings his "A" game whether it's helping me with showings, consulting on potential projects, or the phenomenal value he brings as a listing agent. I strongly recommend John Rice and his team.

Eric and Sarah C

We have worked with John in the past to sell a home and recently to purchase a new home. John is extremely professional, knowledgable and willing to answer any question you have during the buying or selling process. He is a great advocate on your behalf and John has exceeded our expectations both times we've worked with him. I would recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Jenna & Adam D

John guided us through the process of buying a new home. He took us on our first outing and it was immediately clear that he was very knowledgeable about the area and the business. He was courteous and patient and took notes on our preferences throughout. On the second outing it was obvious his time to get know our preferences paid off: he showed us several houses that fit exactly what we were looking for and that we would have been happy to purchase. We ended up getting a house that surpassed our expectations and fit within the budget we had given. We were very impressed with John and would highly recommend his services.

B&B Beard

"John really went to work for me. He SOLD my old home in 2 weeks and was patient with me as we looked for a new home. He really seems to understand the market and how to execute the whole deal. I would list with John in a heartbeat. If your considering buying or selling, John will make you very happy."

Jack & Stacey N

"When John Rice came to us our house had already been on the market for 2 years. We had almost given up hope of selling our house. Within 3 months John brought us two offers and our house was sold. He also helped us find our new house as well. We highly recommend John, whether your house is worth a little or a lot, John Rice will give you great personal and friendly service with the utmost professionalism."

Skip & Sara Coryell

It has been a GREAT experience working with the “Rice Team” while my wife and I were both selling our home and purchasing a new one. Great, because when working with them, they made us feel as though we were their most important clients. They were readily available when we had questions, which there were plenty, and they were very patient with us through the entire complex process of selling/purchasing our home, taking extra time to explain and making sure that we understood all of our options.

The Henry’s

The Rice team covered every angle to assure that the sale of our home took place in a timely and efficient manner, making this a pleasant experience.They were easily accessible and able to answer any questions that arose throughout the entire process. It was a great pleasure working with them and we will work with them again.

Justin & Jaime Beckstrom

Dear John, I wanted to take a moment and thank you both for the professional way that you handled our listing. As you know our house had been on the market for a considerable length of time with a different realtor. Once we made the decision to switch realtors, Jason and I had told ourselves that we were going to interview many different realtors so we got the one that would be right for us. You were our first and only interview that we did. Your professionalism and amazing presentation blew us away and as you know we signed with you two on the spot. At the time of the listing it was early December and we all fully agreed that we needed to hang with this listing through the tough winter months and would really look forward to something positive happening in March. Within 5 days of signing with you, we had an offer and 3 weeks later, we were sitting at a closing table....Thank you again for helping us. Please know we will be referring you to anyone that is looking for a Realtor. Sincerely,

Jason & Christine

During the sale of our old farmhouse and purchase of a new property, John Rice was a skillful professional. His positive attitude was infectious and inspiring. He possesses a knowledge of the local market and industry trends that is encyclopedic. As a young physician, my schedule is very hectic. I am amazed at how quickly John was able to respond to my phone calls and correspondences at all times. He consistently answered any questions we had within a few hours (most often within minutes). He always made my wife and I feel like we were his only clients as he focused his attention on our sale. Of course, there are many Realtors who may share some of those aforementioned qualities. However, the thing that sets John Rice apart is his tangible desire to share in our vision and help us realize our family’s dream. My wife and I always had the sense that from the first day we met him, John understood us and really desired to help us achieve those life-long goals. Needless to say, I now enthusiastically refer him to all of my friends and family. To any physicians or health-care professionals who are interested in moving their practice to our blossoming medical community in West Michigan, I urge you to contact John Rice and make him your ally too! Sincerely,

Joshua D. Vander Lugt, MD

John was a pleasure to work with. We were only in town for a long weekend to find a home and he was extremely accommodating of out tight schedule. We finally found our new home on the last day of our visit. John was very helpful through the entire negotiation process and helped us get our dream house and keep it within our budget.

Nick A

John was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate business. All of our questions were answered that arose during our buying experience and he kept us well informed of the next steps in the process. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family as the realtor to use for any real estate transaction whether it is buying, selling or even renting a home.

Vera & Jeremy D

I can’t thank you enough for helping me over the last 5 years. I began Grand Rapids with you and ended it with you. Seems fitting!... I will continue to send anyone I know to get the great service I received. I certainly am not your only promoter in Grand Rapids! Best,

Andrew B, M.D.

John helped make the experience of buying my home, both painless and actually a pleasure. I don't know how many clients can say that about their real estate agent. I would definitely give John a call if you are thinking of buying or selling.

Andy K

"John recently helped us buy our home. I strongly recommend his expertise to any looking to buy or sell. He is always professional and exemplified a strong work ethic. He is candid with his knowledge and advice. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him and have already recommended him to our friends."

John, I was extremely pleased with your help as our realtor in buying my first (my husband’s second) home. You were knowledgable, efficient and made sure all of our questions were answered. As we had a somewhat limited amount of time to go house hunting, you did a great job working with us by setting up full days of appointments with little advance warning from us. We really appreciated all of your time and effort. Thanks!

Allison Long MD

John is awesome, he takes the time to help you with everything and answer all your questions. He made the process of finding a home enjoyable
