Brad Van Oostenbrugge Real Estate Agent

If you are thinking about buying or selling a home, put me to work for you! Having been through the buying process a number of times myself, I completely understand the pressure and nerves involved in the buying and selling process. I work hard to relieve those pressures by providing excellent communication and being readily available to answer any questions that arise along the way. Buying or selling a home should be an exciting process and I enjoy sharing that excitement with all my clients. Shortly after receiving a bachelor’s degree from Grand Valley State, I worked as a business manager for a division of a large company in Grand Rapids. Working in both sales and purchasing, I learned how to be an effective negotiator. Aside from negotiating great deals for my clients, the most important part of real estate for me is communicating effectively. I take pride in making time for my clients and striving to answer the phone to help them through the process!
On a personal level, I am happily married to my wife Katelyn of 10 years and we have two beautiful young children named Brynlee and Sawyer. When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy playing golf, softball, basketball, and getting together with friends. I look forward to working with you and giving you the time an effort necessary to have an excellent experience in your next real estate transaction!

Frequently Asked Questions

Once you have a pre-approval letter from a reputable lender, the process begins with touring homes and finding you likes and dislikes for you next home. In the current competitive market, you have to be available for showings on short notice and be ready to make a decision without sleeping on it. This is where a good agent will help inform you to make the right decisions.

With the current sellers market in Grand Rapids, selling your home for top dollar is all about marketing it properly. From professional photography to social media, the home needs to be showcased to as many people as possible. Staging and preparing the home before listing is also a very important factor.

I have worked with first time home buyers, investors, those looking to upgrade, those looking to downsize, and everywhere in between.

I recently helped a young couple find a house in the Jenison area. We had offered on a few houses without success and through networking with a few other agents, I was able to find them a house before it hit the market.

I worked in business to business sales for several years and a cousin of mine asked if I would make the transition and help him in he real estate business. The partnership grew, and now we are in the top 3 of all agents in Grand Rapids.

Before real estate, I worked in the construction industry and have learned many of the trades that are required to build a house. This expertise helps my clients make informed decisions about their home sale/purchase.
