CEO | Owner | REALTOR®, ABR, GRI
As a Realtor and owner of SVG Real Estate Firm in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I live by the mantra "Knowledge is Power" and believe in service through sharing the resources that are given to us to better the lives of our clients, which, in turn, betters the life of the West Michigan community at large.
I grew up on Blaine Avenue in Alger Heights and became licensed as a Realtor in 2007 before starting SVG – then Steve Volkers Group – the same year. Since Day One, my top priority as a Realtor has been to counsel each and every one of my clients about the process of selling or buying home while providing comprehensive and up-to-date information about West Michigan's many neighborhoods and local real estate market conditions.
Having barely graduated from high school due to difficulties associated with dyslexia, I never dreamed that I would one day be the head of my own brokerage, leading a team of some of the most amazing and dynamic agents in Grand Rapids real estate. The people I work with and the clients I meet inspire me every day. I get to do what I love for a living, and for that I feel incredibly blessed.
I owe much to my amazing wife, who tolerates my day-to-day craziness so well, and my spunky twin boys. We live in the Creston Heights neighborhood of Grand Rapids and enjoy spending summers together on Grant Lake.
