Ross Bacon

Ross Bacon got his initial taste of real estate when he purchased his first single family home while a student at Western Michigan University. Ross moved to Grand Rapids and began working as Marketing Director, for Josh May, a local Realtor®. Before long, Ross was buying local homes and condos as rental properties around the downtown area… and he knew this is what he wanted to do full time. With Josh’s and his own experience with rental properties, Ross knew he would not regret his decision to become a real estate agent.

Professionally Ross is known for his marketing abilities and his experience with single family homes, condos and investment properties. Ross markets homes with a modern flair. He uses social media, exquisite photography and professionally produced videos to ensure that his listings stand out, and sell for top dollar.

Personally Ross is passionate about music, the outdoors and real estate of course. Ross loves adding his own creativity to anything he comes across in life. In fact, when he takes a client through a home he is just as interested in seeing the property and its unique features as they are! Ross loves visualizing what a home “could be” and helping his clients see the true potential in every property.

    Bought a Multi Family home in 2019 for approximately $250K in Midtown, Grand Rapids, MI.
    What separates Ross from other realtors I have worked with in the past is the services he provides. He doesn’t just go away after close - he has been there every step of the way, connecting us w/ contacts to renovate, offering his opinion on pricing for various services, and making sure we are keeping our head above water.

    In terms of realtor responsibilities, he is extremely responsive and knows about properties as soon as they hit the market. He has been around the block before and knows almost every realtor on the other side. He understood our sellers needs and motivation and was able to use that to get us the best deal possible.

    He also has a wealth of knowledge about the Grand Rapids market. I am a first time real estate investor, and Ross walked me through the different areas of GR and his business model. He also took a great deal of time to make sure we were learning what to look for as we walked through various properties.

    Whether you are buying a residential property or looking for a rental property - Ross is going to to provide the best service in town. And it doesn’t end at closing! Would highly recommend.

    Bought a home in 2019 in NE.
    Ross was absolutely wonderful to work with! He was also able to recommend some builders that he knew of to build a deck on the back of our new house and went the extra mile every time we asked him for something. We would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a house in the GR area. Thank you!
    Response from Ross on 5/30/2019
    You two were great to work with. I hope you enjoy your new home. Can't wait to see the new deck and renovations you end up doing. Thank you for trusting me to help you through the process.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $200K in Midtown, Grand Rapids, MI.
    Ross was very knowledgeable and helpful in making the housing search a painless process. A very friendly guy who was responsive and timely to any questions. Him and the rest of the team were easy to work with and I could not have had a better experience.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $200K in North East, Grand Rapids, MI.
    We are so glad we found Ross to help us with our home purchase! It was a multiple offer negotiation and he advised us how to present ourselves in the most advantageous light. Being new to the Grand Rapids area, we valued his knowledge of this market. Ross effectively communicated the character of the city's many neighborhoods and helped us narrow down our search. He knows the construction of older houses and what to look out for. We found Ross to be caring, trustworthy, and responsive. We could tell he loves what he does.
    Response from Ross on 2/14/2019
    Thank you so much for the kind words, Gina and Steve. I am sad the search is over but very happy for you both and your new home. I really enjoyed working with you both and thank you for the opportunity to be your agent. Welcome to Michigan!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $175K in South West Area, Grand Rapids, MI.
    I cannot say enough good things about Ross. I was very nervous to start the home-buying process, and he totally put my mind at ease right from the beginning. He was very conscious of my budget, and never made me feel pressured to spend outside of my limits. He helped me find several amazing houses, and make competitive offers. Even when an offer was accepted and hiccups came up, I totally felt like he had my back, and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible. I never had an issue getting in touch with him, even on weekends for miscellaneous questions. He went above and beyond for me, and exceeded my expectations repeatedly. He was organized, dependable, and has a sharp eye for details that can easily get overlooked. 5 Stars hardly does him justice!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $225K in Heritage Hill, Grand Rapids, MI.
    I chose Ross based on on-line recommendations and I was extraordinarily happy with the work he did for me. He asked what I wanted from the selling experience; I told him that I was primarily interested in a hassle-free sale and that's exactly what I got. After the inspection he arranged for the repairs we agreed to and even followed up with workmen when he was concerned the repairs weren't happening quickly enough. He was also great at keeping me informed. I would definitely call him again for future real estate transactions.

    Ross was amazing to work with!
    My husband and I just bought our first home, and Ross was our realtor. He was incredibly responsive, and did a great job keeping his eye out for properties that fit our wants and needs.
    When we found a house we liked, Ross was very on top of taking the next steps!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $250K in Grand Rapids, MI.
    Ross helped us relocate back to the GR area from the east side. Very professional and after viewing one round of house picked up on our needs and openness to find a fixer-upper. He understood our vision and provided great advice on each of the properties. Very easy to work with, negotiated to the best possible price, highly recommended!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $175K in Garfield Park, Grand Rapids, MI.
    Ross is a great realtor! His extensive knowledge of the Grand Rapids housing market enabled us to see our house very quickly. He was very communicative and responsive throughout the process, including calling us during his vacation. He kept us up to date on things throughout, and was a great resource for a variety of recommendations. He was patient throughout, and never pressured us, only provided thoughtful opinion and advice. It was truly a pleasure to work with Ross, and I would highly recommend him to others who are looking to sell or buy a house. Thanks for everything, Ross!
