This is not our first time using the Wortman Group, and that is what should tell others about their effectiveness and advocacy for their clients. Mark, Mary and Doug are excellent at giving timely advice and keeping their clients informed and involved in the process. I simply cannot say enough good things about Mark's assistance he gave to us in selling our home. There are certainly good real estate agents in SW Michigan, but if you want the very best, use the Wortman Group, you will not be disappointed with them. They are simply the best at what they do."
"Just today we closed on a breathtaking multiple parcel real estate transaction. From the initial offer to closing, Doug was our advocate. He was very responsive and returned calls quickly. This was a pretty complicated endeavor; it involved four buyers, the two sellers and their listing agent. We would definitely recommend Doug as a trustworthy, reliable and very nice young man to handle even the most complex real estate transactions."
