John Postma developed a hard work ethic from a young age, paying his way through school by working on a hog and dairy farm. In college, he was challenged by a professor to find a career that played to his strengths and motivated him.
For Postma, that was real estate. Early on, he learned the importance of being honest, professional, efficient, and attentive to details. Today, Postma constantly evaluates where his energy and time are focused. He says he quickly learned that you must take control of your business, or it will control you and your personal life.
Entering his 43rd year in real estate, Postma has been the recipient of numerous awards. Last year, he exceeded $1 billion in personal sales — thanks to hard work, persistence, and never losing sight of the big picture.
Postma also enjoys giving back to the community, and serves on many nonprofit boards.
