REALTOR®, Big Rapids Realty, Inc

As a lifelong resident of the area, a graduate of Ferris State University & Central Michigan University, retired teacher and administrator, I guess it’s no surprise that I decided to continue my career in a people oriented occupation as a REALTOR®!  Working with familiar faces and meeting new folks everyday makes being a REALTOR® the perfect place for me!  The opportunity to help others make the best Real Estate decisions that fit their own individual needs, is a very satisfying and rewarding feeling.

As my voicemail message will tell you, “I’m also the guy lucky enough to be married to Stacey!” She’s an outstanding wife and mother who also teaches Second Grade for Morley Stanwood Community Schools.  I have been blessed with four wonderful children and a beautiful granddaughter!  We attend Trinity Evangelical Free Church here in Big Rapids as well as Northland United Methodist Church in Stanwood.  I currently serve as a member of the Board of Education for the Morley Stanwood Community School District and previously served on the Mecosta Osceola Intermediate District School Board as well as the Board of Directors at Kelsey Memorial Hospital in Lakeview.  For over twenty years, I’ve served as the chairperson of the Mecosta County Chapter of Whitetails Unlimited.  This involvement with Whitetails Unlimited allows me the volunteer opportunity to work to help provide disabled children and veterans’ with memorable deer hunting experiences.

Randy LaPrezeHaving been blessed with a large and active family, I enjoy attending my children’s school and athletic events!  Whether it be basketball or volleyball games or plays, I cherish the opportunity to see my children in action!  I’m also an avid outdoorsman and appreciate every opportunity I have to be outside in our great Michigan outdoors.  Also, for a number of years now, my wife and I have traveled the country as we attended various concerts, especially Tim McGraw and Faith Hill events.  We were blessed many years ago in meeting Tim and Faith through mutual friends and have enjoyed seeing them around the country on a regular basis every year!  

Please feel free to call, email or text me anytime if I can be of assistance to you in the buying or selling of your home or property!  Whatever your Real Estate needs might be, I look forward helping you every step of the way with prompt, courteous, personalized and knowledgeable service to meet your needs!

I am excited about the opportunity of assisting both buyers and sellers in all areas of their real estate needs. It is my goal to be the best representative and ally I can be for my clients.
