About Renewed Homes

West Michigan Real Estate Investment Company

 

Our Story

 

Renewed Homes is a real estate investing company committed to buying distressed homes at fair prices. We got our start back in 2015, when we realized we could use our own personal passions for building and renovating homes to better our West Michigan community. Since then, we’ve purchased and renovated a number of homes throughout Muskegon, Ottawa, Kent, Allegan, Van Buren, Barry, and Montcalm counties, constantly working to help community members in tense situations move on from troublesome houses, and turning those tough projects into beautiful investments for the next owner. 

Our local business is dedicated to helping you move on from financial worry. Whether you’d like to sell your home quickly for cash, are interested in repairing it to sell for top dollar, or would like to stay in your home and pay off debt, we are here to find the best solution for you. Know that purchasing and restoring houses isn’t just a hobby for us. Our employees are dedicated to Renewed Homes full time, and as a small, community-oriented company, we’re all invested in the mutual success of your home.

Renewed Homes was founded on the core values of honesty, integrity, and trust; values that we still hold at the heart of our business today. When you work with Renewed Homes, you won’t be dealing with a large corporation, or salesmen who don’t understand the community or your situation. We’re a local West Michigan company, and we’re here to help our fellow community members, not trick or cheat them. We’ve lived here our entire lives, and we’re a part of the community too.

Megan Sharp

Megan Sharp

Realtor, Five Star Real Esate, Design, Project Management

I like being a real estate agent, but I love helping improve lives and homes. I graduated from Calvin College and went straight into Planning, Zoning, and Building, for a municipality in the Grand Rapids metro area. After that I moved on to a law firm in downtown Grand Rapids. “Off the clock” I was an avid home renovator for over a decade while I also grew my experience in business and marketing. For the past 4 years I have worked in real estate full-time specializing in market valuation, sales, and renovation design/management. My greatest goal is to provide value to every person in every transaction – that both sellers and buyers are improving themselves, the market, and the community.

Jessica started designing spaces the day she realized she was old enough to move furniture around in her bedroom. From painting rooms to staging houses and designing kitchens to buying small decor, no project is too big or too small for her to fill her passion. She received her B.A. degree (with a minor in Business) from Central Michigan University in 2010 and since then has had her “foot-in-the-door” in as many places as she could to get the best experience as possible.

He then left the field to pursue his passion for security. Still working construction on and off through the years it led him back to what he loves the most which is building something from scratch and turning something distressed into something beautiful.
