As a Realtor with Keller Williams Realty Grand Rapids, I can tell you that it is a great company to work for. As far as doing work in both areas, that could be tough, especially starting out. It is hard enough to generate referrals in one area, and you would have to get your real estate license in both states. That's not to say that it can't be done (I have seen people operate in multiple) states, but it would probably make life more difficult. If you would like to sit down and discuss what it would take to become a Realtor (or even talk on the phone), let me know. I was a new agent a few years ago, so I know how much it can help to talk to other agents. I'd be glad to talk to you about it. Thanks!
