Michael L. Bass

Dear Fellow Realtor®,


My name is Michael Bass and I am asking for your support and vote for me as Director of the Michigan Realtors®. I am seeking the position representing the 3rd Congressional District. Starting September 2nd, you will have the opportunity to vote for your representative. There are three individuals asking for your consideration, but I am hoping to receive your vote.


I have worked hard for the past 32 years as a Realtor®, 29 of those years as a broker. I have been a member in good standing with the Grand Rapids Association of REALTORS® (GRAR) for all of those years. In addition to serving on most of our local Association’s committees, I have served on the GRAR Board of Directors, and am a Past President of GRAR. I have served on the Michigan Realtors® Board of Directors as well, and have been honored as local GRAR Realtor®-of-the-Year.  I hold the CRB and GRI designations, as well as other local designations.


During my career, I have not only been active as a sales agent, I have owned my own real estate company, and currently serve as Vice President of Sales and Associate Broker for Greenridge Realty, Inc. Greenridge Realty is one of West Michigan's largest, independently-owned firms.


I recognize the value of strong Realtor® Associations, both at the local and state levels.  I see many benefits to the collaboration of those Associations on regional issues and projects.  For instance, I am a member of the West Michigan Regional Forms Committee, which has afforded me the opportunity to work alongside Realtors® from the Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Mason Oceana Manistee, Montcalm, West Central, and West Michigan Lakeshore Association to develop consistent and sound real estate forms and contracts. 


I feel these experiences and more make me qualified to represent you on the Michigan Realtors® Board. With your support and vote, I will work hard to protect our private property rights, support and maintain the high professional standards of our industry, and preserve the integrity of the Realtor® name and the values we provide.


I want to be your advocate and representative. I need your support and most importantly your vote.


Thanks in advance,


Michael L. Bass
