Martin Bouma's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Martin Bouma

    • We had a fantastic experience with Scott from the Bouma Agency during the initial buying process. Once we negotiated the deal Becki Gersh was absolutely amazing to work with up to and throughout the closing process. Thanks for everything you did for us in finding our new Forever Home.

      - Bruce Genthe
    • Professional friendly and attentive Heidi was always available and gave great advice. Martin also consulted and the team was very helpful. Highly recommend them!

      - Buyer in Ann Arbor
    • The Bouma Group worked with me even as my ideas changed about the type of home I was looking for. Martin suggested an agent for me that matched our needs in a home with an area we liked. Our agent was able to clarify when the decision looked muddy and we ultimately purchased the first home we looked at. The team worked tremendously to finalize the close and get us everything we needed along the way. Their process is unique and it works. Each person on the team is matched to their unique strengths. I couldn't have asked for a better result. We are so happy with our home purchase and the ease of our sale. Thank you!

    • One of the best decisions Martin Bouma made was to bring Lisa Gray on board. Lisa Gray is the expert on condos in my book. Lisa Gray is the perfect professional combination of SuperWoman and angel. Lisa Gray gathered an A-List of craftspeople who updated our condo and turned it into a gorgeous property people were fighting to own. Oh, and did I mention that Lisa and I have never met? We talked daily. I was in the loop. But I was also in my home in Savannah, Georgia the entire time -- which took less than two months BTW! Lisa Gray earned the sale, and handed the ball over to Ginger Votaw for closing. An amazing process from my point of view from beginning to happy ending

      - Rosen3941
    • Heidi, Christina, and Becki were wonderful to work with! Christina knows so much about the area, which was very helpful for us, as we had just moved. She was always on call, is extremely knowledgable, and provided honest and helpful advice at every stage, on matters large and small. We had a rough negotiation, and Becki worked tirelessly to find out as much information as possible to help us out. We always felt like we were in competent hands, which was so important as first-time home buyers in a unique market.

      - Savithryn
    • We used Bouma to buy our house (w. Scott), and to sell it 4 years later (w. Martin). They were great on both sides of the table - consistently went above and beyond for us, and made the process seamless. I was traveling extensively for work during both closes, and they facilitated the process throughout - including hiring contractors prior to both closes to do work on the house. Cannot recommend highly enough!

      - Buyer in Ann Arbor
    • It was a pleasure to work with Lisa, Brandie and Becky. We live in AR and they were a great help in selling our house in MI. They handled everything we couldn't do being so far away. We highly recommend this group's help in selling or buying a new home.

      - Margaret Seese
    • Martin and his team were professional, responsive and fun to work with. Best of all they sold my house in two weeks. They were very helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process, and made it as easy and painless as possible. If I were buying or selling a house in Ann Arbor, I would look no further. Five stars all the way!!!

      - Condo Seller in Ann Arbor
    • My fianc and I had a wonderful experience working with Christina and the Bouma Group. From beginning to end the staff was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable in what can be a very stressful time. I knew my every question would be answered and each person we worked with was genuinely happy to help.

      - September Ranae
    • The Bouma Group was excellent right from the moment they put us in touch with our agent Brandee until we were sitting down to close with closing manager Ginger (and beyond!). In the end, we sold for well over asking, and this was a home that needed a lot of work and I was afraid no one might want. They also provided a few free perks that made things so much easier: A consultation with a stager / decorator; professional photography for the listing; and access to a moving truck. Will definitely be using them for my next move.

      - Seller in Ann Arbor
    • It was a pleasure working with Darlene and the team at The Bouma Group. Darlene was extremely helpful navigating the real estate market during such a competitive time for buying a home. She was knowledgeable and went the extra mile to ensure we found the perfect home. I highly recommend Darlene and team at The Bouma Group. Thank you for everything!

      - K Young
    • I used the Bouma Group to buy my first house 17 years ago, and came back to buy my second, as I had such a good experience the first time around. Martin and his team were always available, and quick to answer my questions, whether it was through phone calls, emails or texts. Gregg and Becki helped me through the process with a perfect mix of humor and professionalism. I highly recommend using Bouma Group!

      - Buyer in Saline
    • The agent went out of the way to find listings specific to my needs and as my criteria changed was right on top every step of the way. He answered every inquiry on was on call all the time. I highly recommend the Bouma Group for their knowledge, expertise and work ethic.

      - Kevin Karath
    • The team here has the process worked out to a T at every detail. They were very patient and explained each step of the selling process whenever I asked. You go through different team members for each step, but whoever you call - because it's hard to keep track of who's who - they will work to find your answers and help. Cannot express enough how helpful this entire team was. I wish we could sell another house just to work with them again!

      - Sold Condo in Ann Arbor
    • We had a wonderful experience using the Bouma Group, and would recommend them to everyone. We would definitely use them again in the future, if the need arises. They are a very professional, knowledgeable, and organized team that will look out for your best interests every step of the way. As first-time home-buyers, they were exactly what we needed and wanted in a real estate team. Our buyer's agent, Scott Guyor, and showing assistant, Vicki Larmee, were at all times honest and attentive, and willing to work with our schedule. Once we found the perfect home, they, along with their closing team, Becki Gersh and Maureen Guinta, successfully helped negotiate the best terms for the sale, and we were able to beat out a competing offer in a "highest and best offer" situation. They did extra legwork to help us close out of state and meet all deadlines in a timely manner. They also worked hand in hand with our mortgage loan officer to make sure he had the paperwork he needed, and helped us line up all the necessary inspections so we didn't have to stress about it. It was nice to know we could trust them to take care of things and look out for us at such an important and busy time in our lives. Everything went smoothly, and we are now settled happily into our new home. Thanks, Bouma Group!

      - Josh Aksich
    • We sold our house just above asking price and quickly. The process was very smooth, and Martin and his team were always responsive. We'd recommend him to anyone.

      - Ben And Lan
    • I would not use anyone other than the team at Martin Bouma. Darlene Dresch helped us find and secure a condo. Becki, the closing agent was first class as well. Very easy to talk to and work with, and always prompt in getting back with us.

      - Christian Razz
    • We used the Bouma Group for both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home. Every step of the way on both the buying and selling they delivered. We needed to sell our existing home quickly to purchase our "dream home" and we let Martin and his team take over. We had multiple offers and a pending sale on our property in less than a week and above asking price. From a buying standpoint, the team of Heidi and Michelle always had our best interests in mind and made themselves available whenever we needed them and on short notice. The Bouma Group managed to schedule both of our closings an hour apart at the same title company as well. They made buying and selling a home as convenient and efficient as possible. We highly recommend this team of professionals to anyone looking to do either in the Ann Arbor area!

      - Mierkowicz Family
    • I could not have asked for a better experience buying my first home under the expert guidance of the Bouma Group! The decision regarding which realtor to work with in buying a home is important in all markets, but especially in a sellers market where you often need to make quick, strategic decisions to craft a winning offer. In doing so, you place a great deal of trust in your realtors market knowledge and experience, reputation in the local real estate community, and ability to understand your wants and needs in a home. From my first meeting with Scott Guyor and his excellent team (Vicki Larmee), I knew I would be in good hands. They took the time to really understand what I was looking for and educate me about the process and the realities of the current market. Most importantly, I felt I could trust the advice he was giving me, which turned out to be critical in having the confidence to act quickly in making a strong offer on a fabulous house new to the market that fortunately allowed me to avoid a bidding war! Once the contract was signed, Becki Gersh and the fantastic closing team kept me up to date on various contingency deadlines, walked me through the home inspection and negotiation process, and kept me informed as my financing was approved and we proceeded to closing. Scott accompanied me to the closing, which was much appreciated as well. My sincerest thanks to Scott, Vickie, Becki and all involved in helping me to find a wonderful first home here in Ann Arbor in a challenging market. I give the Bouma Group my highest recommendation and would not hesitate to use them again in the future. This is an honest, highly competent, hard-working group of realtors!

      - M Geni
    • Awesome team! Brandee and Ginger were great. Extremely responsive and went way above and beyond what I was expecting. I had a bad experience with another agent and switched to Bouma. Polar opposites. Bouma is fantastic. Cheers, Bouma Team! Keep up the amazing work!

      - Seller in Ann Arbor
    • Gregg Costanzo was an excellent agent. He quickly understood our needs and helped us focus our search until we found the perfect condo. He was very responsive to our requests and was excellent at getting answers to our questions. Becky and Maureeen on the closing team also did an excellent job answering questions, managing the documents and process, and meeting our needs. The Bouma group was very professional and I would definitely work with them again.

      - Buyer in Ann Arbor
    • From the very first meeting we had with Scott it was very evident that he was thorough, incredibly knowledgeable and amazingly dedicated to making sure we, as first time home buyers, were not only satisfied but immensely happy, informed home owners. His dedication to teaching us along the way while ALWAYS putting us and our needs first is simply unparalleled. In an incredibly competitive market he managed to carry us through every single step with deliberate, thoughtful care while never letting us give up hope (even when we wanted to!). All around the most incredible experience we could ask for. We have already sent so many people his way and will continue to do so.

      - Kiyanna Williams
    • I assisted my son in purchasing a condo in the Ann Arbor area. I contacted Gregg Costanzo and he responded within hours. He was friendly, knowledgeable about the area, ( we are from the East Coast), Very responsive to our questions and helped us make the purchase sight unseen. He set up the home inspection and stayed throughout. Most of all, he was honest, which was refreshing. I wouldn't hesitate to use this group again and especially Gregg Costanzo.

      - Annette Lofft
    • I contacted Scott Guyor based on a recommendation from my brother. As a first time home buyer, it was a bit overwhelming considering how murky the financial and home purchasing process can be when you walk into it for the first time. When I contacted Scott, he was able to meet me on a Saturday and provide a consultation on what I can expect as far as process and breakdown of closing costs. Throughout the house search, my real estate agent Vicki Larmee was able to anticipate the type of houses I would like and get us in to try and see it as early as possible. During the closing process, I was handed off to work with their closing department. We were able to change the closing date from about 45 days to 30 days, which I was very happy about. The whole experience was pretty seamless and I am happy with the service I received.

      - Buyer in Canton
    • Martin Bouma and the Bouma Group team exceeded our expectations at every step of the way in the sale of our home (Martin Bouma) and the purchase of our new home (Heidi Elder). The Bouma team, and they truly work as a team, were professional, personable and proficient throughout the process. They listened carefully to our needs and expectations and responded thoughtfully using real-time market data to guide us in our decision making. From listing to staging to closing, our experience was just fantastic. I recommend the Bouma Group to everyone I can. They are the VERY BEST group of realtors in Ann Arbor.

      - Seller in Ann Arbor
    • We needed to sell our parents' well-maintained but dated home and neither of us live in Michigan. The Bouma Group did a spectacular job and the house was sold and closed to a cash buyer in seven weeks, which helped make my parents' transition to assisted living much less stressful.

      - Seller in Ann Arbor
    • The Bouma Group are true professionals. They know the market and give seasoned, expert advice. My home was positioned in the upper end of its market and they got the job done. They receive my highest rating.

      - Kevin Michaels
    • Darlene made the home buying process very easy. She was very easy to communicate with and worked hard to find me a great place that was under budget. The Bouma Group is extremely efficient.

      - Swanson Family
    • Team Bouma... First off, i dont tend to give recommendations but for this, i feel justified to do so. Martin and his team helped us find our home in 2007, and we continued our relationship with them for our next move. They knew our short term goals and they knew our long term dreams. When it was time to sell our first house in June (2016) in order to obtain our our next home, we knew who to call. Martin and his team walked us through the journey and made dreams possible from the first home (starter) in 2007 to preparing us to sell starter in order to leverage our dream property in Dexter. Martin, Scott, Logan, Corinne, Becki and the entire team made this journey happen and our family is very grateful for this.thanks again team Bouma for being patient and building trust with us. Bottom line, you helped close a very complex deal and at the end, made dreams come true.

    • I first had the privilege of working with Martin himself 15+ Years ago when I purchased my first condo. I was left with a great experience as he provided personal advice, service, expertise, and advocacy. So when it came time to sell my condo and purchase a new home, I didn't hesitate to call upon his expertise again. Although I didn't get to work with him directly this time, his amazing team (kudos to Scott, Brandee, Corinne, Becki, & Brittany!) are exceptional and nothing short of professionals! There is a reason why Martin Bouma has grown and continued great success over the Years. Here are some of my experiences that set them apart: - They KNOW the local market intimately like no other realtors in town (condos to multi-million dollar listings) and have gained the respect of the local communities, including lenders, builders, craftsman, assessors, realtors, etc. - You become part of their family and are in good hands with a dedicated staff that responds to your needs and concerns. - The entire buying and selling process was smooth and effortless. It really made the experience less stressful. - The free use of their moving truck as needed really came in handy! - I've always enjoyed getting unexpected special treats during the holidays and birthdays (i.e. Achatz pie for Thanksgiving) I would recommend The Bouma Group without hesitation to my closest friends and family! Martin and his team is one of a kind. I look forward to working with them again!

    • I recently sold my home with the Bouma Group. What a fantastic experience. Martin and his team are the best realtors I have ever worked with. Friendly, experienced, and professional. They were able to sell my home quickly and negotiated an offer above my asking price. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home.

      - Jon
    • I contacted The Bouma group based off of the excellent reviews I read online and they certainly delivered. Brandee, Corine, Martin and Becki offer excellence service. They went out of there way to assist me when I was out of town and another realtor left my door open during a visit. Friendly, Professional and straight forward. If you appreciate a team effort and people that will really give their all to sell your home, this is your group. They will negotiate and work with you. My house had a full offer on it within two months and the closing was clean and simple. Highly recommended.

      - L McGhee
    • I was helping my mother sell her condo as she moved into independent living. When I called I talked to Brandee Wiseman and she was very quick to look at my mother's condo. She came back quickly with information on what she thought, what the market was, and a couple items that needed to be taken care of. The neighbor who helped with the selling of my mother's condo was also impressed with Brandee compared to the others. She came with a plan to sell the condo and what to expect. We got the first offer within a couple hours of the condo being listed, it was above asking, and had a offer we accepted in less than a day. Every one was very helpful and I would highly recommend The Bouma Group.

      - Seller in Ann Arbor
    • Bouma group helped us finding new home in Ann Arbor area!. It was great experience working with Bouma team. My home buying was very smooth starting from house searching to closing. Every step was smooth. Employee are so prompt and proactive. Communication response time is very fast.

      - Nikhil Vishwakarma
    • Martin Bouma was great to work with and helped us sell our home quickly. Scott Guyor was our buyer's agent and he was very knowledgeable of the market and home values. I really appreciated his honesty and hard work to get us the house we wanted. The rest of the team was very responsive and it was great to have several people working on our behalf.

      - Seller in Ypsilanti
    • The Bouma Group was excellent in helping me buy my home. Everyone involved was easy to work with, accessible, and flexible. I would recommend them to any and everyone!

      - Javan Thompson
    • Martin has a very professional team. Martin understands the Ann Arbor market very well and had a cohesive plan on how to obtain the best price in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Martin for anybody looking to sell property in the Ann Arbor area.

      - Seller in Northfield Twp
    • I highly recommend the Bouma group. I worked directly with Lauren Astles who was a great pleasure to work with. She was very kind, punctual, available, and really became a friend to us. My wife and I appreciated her genuine care for our family and patience while we waited for that "perfect" house! The team behind her was great as well while working through all the details.

      - Buyer in Saline
    • Martin and his staff are incredibly well-prepared, knowledgeable, and responsive. Their expertise in all aspects of real estate, along with deep connections to the local marketplace, allowed us to feel incredibly comfortable at every stage. We would recommend Martin and his team to our family and friends.

      - Seller in Ann Arbor
    • Was very pleased with the group. Came into the process thinking this would be similarly nightmarish like buying my previous home, but Lauren and Becki kept very much on top of things and made sure everything got done on time. Again, very happy with how easy they made it.

      - Buyer in Ypsilanti
    • Heidi, Christina, and Becki were wonderful to work with! Christina knows so much about the area, which was very helpful for us, as we had just moved. She was always on call, is extremely knowledgable, and provided honest and helpful advice at every stage, on matters large and small. We had a rough negotiation, and Becki worked tirelessly to find out as much information as possible to help us out. We always felt like we were in competent hands, which was so important as first-time home buyers in a unique market.

    • We worked with the Bouma Group on the sale of our home and the purchase of a new home. The services this group provides is outstanding! Everyone on the team works together and is very responsive and helpful every step of the way. Imagine our surprise when our house sold the day it was put on the market! I would highly recommend using the Bouma Group for your real estate needs.

      - Seller in Ypsilanti
    • We have been worked with Bouma Group for our home property purchase in Ann Arbor. It was a very pleasant experience. The team is very professional, and dedicate to customer's needs. Bouma has buyer agents, and "closing manager", they focus on different phases of transaction, but co-ordinate closely to get the job done seamlessly. When we were in doubt, Bouma Group team always provide analyzed data as basis for us to think and make decision. That made us being much confident during initial offering, and later negotiations. Also the Bouma Group's "pre-closing" reminder is really helpful - from inspectors selection, to utility transferring, and cleaning services, ... the whole chain of services in a list to choose from. Another important benefit as Bouma Group's customer is to receive monthly, quarterly market updates, tips on sell/buy/upgrade house, re-finance mortgages. The last, but not least important, is Bouma Group's office - decorated nicely, and offered for customer closing meeting. Our purchase was closed at Bouma Group's meeting room, many other customers did so. We're very thankful to the high quality from Bouma Group's services.

      - Grace
    • Bought our first home in a competitive market and everything went so smoothly from a realtor's perspective, they were even helpful when I had questions about financing. The free moving truck was also helpful as we were moving ourselves and thus didn't have to rent a truck. Worked with Scott, Brittany and Becki. They were always flexible in meeting my needs. Thanks!

      - Buyer in Dexter
    • Our experience with the Bouma Group was excellent. They guided us as first time home buyers through the process and made it feel easy. They were always available to answer our questions and helped us find our first home, which was so exciting! Thank you, Bouma Group!

      - edymm0687
    • We chose the Bouma Group based upon the value proposition they provided from a marketing perspective & the way the group is optimizing on the changing real estate market dynamics. From start to finish the team was supportive, proactive, and responsive. To start, our agent presented a data driven listing price recommendation and they then provided the support to achieve that price plus more. From listing to close the team was responsive and clear on next steps. The Bouma Group operates as a well oiled machine to the benefit of their clients.

      - User384137
    • Great experience from start to finish. Having teams dedicated to selling and closing felt like a real advantage. This was my first time selling, and they helped explain things so I felt good about the decisions I was making. Responsive and professional. I was selling my condo from out of town, and they really listened to my needs and priorities for wanting a quick and painless sale. Highly recommend for those who wants to trust a team to take care of all the details and guide you from start to finish.

      - AofAA
    • I was buying and selling property and worked with Brandee and Trevor, who were both terrific. This was my first experience with Bouma, and I found them to be very well organized and specialized as well as super prompt and responsive, and timely communication is so important when buying or selling. They gave me great referrals when I needed vendors, etc. and the transactions came together perfectly. Courtney, my closing agent, managed all of the details and was amazingly responsive.

      - dtreid5
    • Both times we sold our home in Ann Arbor we utilised The Bouma Group, great experience both times! The Group is organised and collaborate well from listing through closing! I highly recommend Martin Bouma and his colleagues to coordinate all of your real estate needs in the Washtenaw County Area.
