Blackout Tuesday


The shocking, senseless death of George Floyd is tragic. Our deepest sympathies are with the Floyd family and other families who understand and feel this pain and grief. Our neighbors in the communities where we work and live across America should feel safe and free from discrimination. As longtime champions of fair housing, equality and inclusion are among a REALTOR’s most cherished values, and certainly those of Grand River Realty.

Today we have initiated a $500 donation to ACLU Michigan‘s Smart Justice campaign. Please join us today in recognizing the need for justice in the United States of America for black lives, the need to be anti-racist in America, and the calling to make active, positive contributions on the subject with our time and resources.
