Leda Vander Laan
Realtor in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Leda Vander Laan’s success in real estate is a direct result of her ingenuity. Leda knows that no one transaction is ever the same, that every client has a different set of wants, needs, and motivators and it’s with this understanding that Leda’s brilliance as an agent shines through.
Leda got her first taste of real estate when she was a newlywed. She and her husband Brian (who was in the building supply business) embarked on an adventure together and teamed up to build three spec homes. Brian acted as lead contractor/builder, while Leda was architect and designer. She utilized her keen eye for detail and design to make their three homes a reality. Leda also listed the homes herself, a job she grew to love. It wasn’t until the sale of their third home that she met Tom Rich, with Remax. This introduction would take a hobby and turn it into a full time career.
Leda loves what she does and it’s evident from her dedication, follow through and results driven work ethic. Customer service and communication are the cornerstones of her business and the reason she became an instant success within the real estate industry. Her years of building homes makes her an asset to clients from talking through paint colors, to redesigning kitchens and even removing walls! Leda takes great pride in turning houses into homes for her clients.
Leda grew up in Stevensville with Lake Michigan in her back yard. She spent some time in Holland and Grand Rapids before meeting her husband Brian, who then moved her to Rockford. She loves the sense of community in Rockford and is proud to call it home. Leda and her family are passionate about giving back and are actively involved in two organizations that are close to their hearts, MI Blood and Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.
Leda and her husband are admittedly workaholics, so their one true escape is boating. On the rare occasion they take a day off you will find Leda on the sun bed of her boat on the water surrounded by friends and family.
