There is something about the ambiance of a small town that draws me in. It is the quaintly simple, genuinely friendly atmosphere that makes me believe it was the right decision for me. The people in the Ionia area are great! That is why I joined the LiveLocal company. I feel the comraderie. I feel they care about Ionia and the areas around us. They grew up here (not everyone is so lucky) and they give back to the area in the form of donations from every office listing sold. Their combined experience balances nicely and it makes for a great place to be. I am proud to be a member of this company. I have been in the Ionia area now for 4 years. It would be an honor and a privilege to help you make your next move. Feel free to contact Kim anytime at kim@livelocal-realty.com or at 517.862.3434.
