Raynetta sold our condo in less than a week at a perfect price. Her research and knowledge of the area as well as the market made this a very stress free experience. I appreciated her quick responses to any questions and her thoughtful suggestions. Thank you Raynetta!

Raynetta made the process of buying a condo go so smoothly. We were under a tight timeline and she went above and beyond to make it happen. We highly recommend Raynetta and loved working with her!

One of the best in the Holland area. Raynetta listens to her clients and is "on top" of the transaction every step of the way. We highly recommend her and would seek her help again...5 Stars!

Jerry & Jill
testimonial quote

"As first time homebuyers entering the pandemic market, to say we were feeling apprehensive is an understatement. Despite the difficult market, Raynetta made the process enjoyable! She listened to what we hoped for, encouraged us, took the time to help us learn in each step, was a warming presence, honest, positive, and knowledgeable. There were numerous occasions where she went out of her way for me and my fiance; she was flexible with our weird work schedules when it came to home showings, and did all the background work so all we had to do was show up. We can't recommend Raynetta enough! If you're looking for someone to help you navigate the ever-changing market, Raynetta's the one you want!!"

testimonial quote

We absolutely love Raynetta! We met Raynetta 6 years ago when we purchased a home close to Hope College in Holland, Michigan. Raynetta was knowledgeable, truthful, professional and had our best interest at heart. This past year, we were in search of another home. We contacted Raynetta. It was at this time when we learned so much more about her. She put aside everything to meet our needs and desires. She showed us what true giving was about. We were forever changed from her actions and kindness! This past month we called Raynetta to sell our home. Just like we thought, she went above and beyond our expectations. Our home had a contract within 24 hours! All because of Raynetta Praest, purchasing and selling a home in Holland Michigan was a wonderful experience. She is truly the best! We feel blessed to have had such a wonderful realtor!

We have worked with many realtors in our lives, but Raynetta is, without a doubt, the best. She was extremely helpful at every step of the process of selling our cottage. She carefully explained our options, guided us in our decisions, and always listened to our needs and preferences. She efficiently and diligently carried out every step of the process, constantly keeping us informed. She was always easy to contact and provided us with every piece of information that we needed. In addition, she did all of this in a friendly and caring manner. We give her our highest recommendation.

We came to Raynetta after a negative experience with a different realtor. Her professionalism and attentiveness to our wishes were beyond reproach. She returned phone calls promptly, sought out answers to our questions quickly and was in contact with us faithfully throughout the process.

Lindy & David

Raynetta did a pre-listing walk-through and gave us suggestions that helped maximize our curb appeal, as well as tips on interior upgrades to reflect today's styles and colors. She walked us through a myriad of documents required for the sale. We had a buyer within 12 hours of publishing the listing. Her attention to detail is impeccable and she constantly kept us updated with progress reports. Raynetta is a superb real estate salesperson!

Raynetta did a fantastic job in selling our condo. She was always very professional with quick thinking answers and explanations to our many questions, and returned phone calls and emails quickly.

Tim
testimonial quote

Raynetta is great. She showed us around 30 houses. When it seemed like nothing was good enough for us, she assured us that the right house was out there. When a house sold and was off the market before we even had a chance to see it, she still had a positive attitude. Raynetta worked really hard for us, never pushed us to make a decision, and ended up feeling like a real friend.

Arne & Debi

testimonial quote

We met Raynetta of Five Star Real Estate a year ago, when first looking for a home. She stuck it out with us all the way. This year even through the pandemic, she and her team made sure our home buying experience was as smooth and safe for all involved. We loved this. They all had great communication with us and each other, through email, and Zoom, making sure every I was dotted and T was crossed until our final stage of the home buying process. We highly recommend Raynetta and Five Star for your home buying process. You won't meet a more reliable and caring person to work with. Thanks Raynetta and Five Star, for helping us achieve our home buying dream!

Mary & Ronnie
testimonial quote

Wow! AMAZING! Raynetta Praest made buying a house such a breeze! We were presented with an opportunity we couldn’t pass up and had to get our house on the market in just a week. Raynetta gave us a very descriptive list of what should be done before selling. We got our house on the market and listed for way more than I thought our house was worth, little did I know she saw so much potential in our home and we had it sold in a week without having to counteroffer on price. I never would have imagined selling a house would be so easy. We are so glad we went with a realtor and especially Raynetta. We were very pleased with how professional, personal and honest she was with us. I would recommend her to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a house, she will NOT disappoint you in anyway.

She truly made this first experience wonderful. I will always come to her for direction and to lead any real estate business I or our family have to handle. Thank you for being our blessing.

Raynetta has sold two different properties for me. One a house which sold within only a couple days.

I am very appreciative of Raynetta Praest as my realtor. Raynetta is professional and personal approach. I had rare and stressful circumstances in selling and buying my homes.

Raynetta did an absolute wonderful job, finding my wife and I exactly what we were looking for. Knows Holland and surrounding areas very well. Also made everything extremely painless and easy. Could not have asked for a better first experience.

Chris & Jackie
testimonial quote

Raynetta was wonderful to work with! There can be many terms and procedures that might not be familiar to everyone buying or selling a home yet she explained everything in a very clear way so that we knew exactly what was happening at each step. She is very client focused and dedicated to doing everything possible in order to provide a positive experience. She made the time for us to have an additional walk-through the house before we put in an offer and then was willing to come to our house after a long day in order to help us write up the offer. It was a huge pleasure working with Raynetta and I'd highly recommend her for either buying or selling a home.

Cody
testimonial quote

Our experience with Raynetta was Phenomenal. We were looking for a home in a very specific location near the area many generations of my family grew up and still live today. This area is in high demand and has had little available. When our home went on the market Raynetta contacted us immediately. She found a section of my great grandparent's original estate where several generations of my family called home. There were several offers on the home already. She discussed buying strategies and helped us make an acceptable offer. After our offer was accepted she guided us through the entire process and took all of the stress out of buying a home. I would highly recommend Raynetta Praest to anyone looking for their dream home.

Jeff & Kim

Andrew & Maggie

Raynetta is not just a realtor, she in the match making business. She does not want to just sell you a house; She wants to help you find your home. Through out the whole process she was friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to reach. She was always able to quickly and accurately answer our questions, and as first time home buyers we had a lot of them. We couldn't have asked for someone better to help us through this experience.

Mitch & Marie

Raynetta helped us buy our first home and we couldn't be happier with her expertise!

She priced it right (multiple offers in two days). She is easy to deal with and kept us informed through out the process. Very professional. Provided helpful advice on staging.

Jim & Marty
testimonial quote

Raynetta far exceeded our expectations for a realtor. My husband and I began working with her in 2015, but didn't buy a house until November 2017. Even though we had her showing us houses off an on for 2 years we never once felt rushed to make a decision or purchase a home - she was always patient and understanding and it was clear her only goal was for us to be happy and have peace of mind. Immediately upon meeting her she made us feel comfortable and showed us that she really cared for us as more than just clients. I would highly, highly recommend working with her... it will be the best and smoothest experience ever!

Jared & Anna

Raynetta was very helpful in selling my condo, found a buyer just hours after I listed with her. Had a little hiccup with closing but Raynetta stayed on top of it and kept me informed at all times, she is a woman full of honesty and integrity and works very hard for her clients. If you are looking for a realtor to help you buy or sell I strongly recommend Raynetta.
