Steve Volkers - Broker & Agent

Fifteen years ago, Steve put his flag in the ground and began his real estate career. Through an economic recession, the rise of blogging, and the discovery and launch of niche marketing, Steve ‘cut his teeth’ on the beginning of 21st century real estate. Today, he brings together his early lessons learned in with his ‘on the job’ experiences. With his passion for negotiating and his love for connection Steve is a unique find in the real estate industry.

While only in his early 40's, Steve has mentored several Realtors, many of whom are top producing agents, committee members of the GRAR Board of Directors and well respected Realtors in our community. As a real estate broker, investor and developer, Steve has his hand in every aspect of our real estate community.

In regards to our crew, Steve looks to encourage people to succeed not only in sales, but also through involvement in our GRAR association and local community. In his words, "We are a group of individuals for themselves, but as a crew we grow together." Steve finds value in helping people see things they may not see themselves, or look at things from a unique and different angle. He has chosen to forego recruiting hundreds of agents; instead focusing on developing a small crew of Realtors that become highly successful agents, producing more units than the average agent.

Maria Kauffman - Agent, Trainer & Mentor

  • Masters in Business Administration from Loyola University, Chicago
  • Nominated as Young Professional of the Year by GRAR two years in a row

Hello! I'm Maria Kauffman. I've been a Realtor in Grand Rapids for the last 4+ years. It's been an incredible journey and I wouldn't have it any other way! Honestly, I've never been happier at any point in my professional career. I understand firsthand what it means to take the leap into this exciting industry. Over the past few years, I have built many meaningful relationships and I care wholeheartedly about the members of our entire crew, new agents, and sharing in their success.

Prior to real estate, my career was heavily focused on brand management and digital sales. From a media agency in Chicago, to a start-up in Seattle, to a Proctor & Gamble affiliate in New England and then on to MLive Media Group in Grand Rapids, I've been involved in a lot of really great ventures and had the opportunity to market international brands, be a part of major sales and digital marketing campaigns, and manage and mentor some amazing people.

I was really fortunate to start my career having Steve Volkers and a few other industry greats as mentors. I still have mentors! Learning never ends. I truly believe I wouldn't have been successful without their support or the opportunities they provided me. In my new role, your success means everything. I am here to walk along beside you, and our team will have a vested interest in your success (whatever you envision that to be). We're a really fun and involved crew! Shoot us a note. We're always up for getting to know you, especially over coffee!
