Client Testimonials

“Kurt’s talent and experience were critical to our success in acquiring the site we wanted in a very short time frame. Multiple sellers, each with differing needs and motivations, can result in a extremely complicated negotiations in transactions such as this. Kurt was able to listen and relate to each of the sellers and advise us on how to meet their individual needs so that we were able to meet our own objectives. I look forward to working with Kurt again in the future, as I am confident that he will bring the same level of professionalism that I have experienced to all transactions that he undertakes.”
- Art C. Johnson, Chairman & CEO • United Bank

“In the past few years, the market for our Lakeshore area building has changed significantly. In an attempt to understand the market and fill some of our space, we hired Kurt Kunst and his team at NAI Wisinski of West Michigan to represent us. In the past 18 months, they have worked with us and we have achieved getting occupancy to 100%. Having a team like Kurt’s on our side that can analyze market conditions, draw parallels to our goals, and guide us to make decisions that compliment both was important to our success.”
- Jim Shields, Property Manager • Centerpoint Properties

You made the entire process go very smooth and we always felt at ease with your leadership and expertise. I am not sure I would have moved forward with such a major decision without your support! I am looking forward to not only requesting your services for future real estate investments, but I will highly recommend you to my colleagues and friends.”
