Santiago Gomez
Santiago Properties, LLC
About Santiago

Listening to client needs and good old fashioned hard work, coupled with cutting edge technology and some of the best real estate marketing in Grand Rapids- that’s how Santiago Gomez conducts his real estate business. Getting to the heart of what a client really wants out of the sale of their home and/or what the client is looking for in a new home, and achieving it, is what drives Santiago as an agent. Santiago came to the real estate business through a long-time interest in the Grand Rapids real estate market, and the positive experience of purchasing his own home through a knowledgeable Realtor. A natural at customer service, business savvy, and marketing minded, Santiago is a huge asset to his clients. Before real estate, a long successful career in sales and as an entrepreneur taught Santiago that asking the right questions is the key to obtaining optimal results. A hard worker with a quest for knowledge he believes that his integrity, attention to detail, and persistence are what define him as an agent. Born in the Dominican Republic, Santiago emigrated to the U.S. when he was three with his family. After 12 years in Miami, his family chose Grand Rapids as their new home and they have now remained here for over 25 years. The promise of a quality of life that West Michiganders have come to appreciate is what has drawn and kept Santiago here. Since then he has immersed himself in the rich culture that West Michigan has to offer. He enjoys exploring restaurants, neighborhoods and the unique diversity that has become a part of the city’s fabric. This enthusiasm is evident in how he serves his clientele.

During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Kent County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
