About Steve



I was born and raised in the Alger Heights community of Grand Rapids. When I started my career, I was goal-oriented from the start. On top of being CEO for Steve Volkers Group, I play the role of Strategic Innovation Consultant for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. My business has grown and shaped organically over the years. I love to meet the needs and requests of my clients by creating honest, friendly relationships within the communities I serve. That, and a bit of elbow grease.


At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, I work with an amazing group of Real Estate professionals, helping to develop the goals of success at a level that fits them; consulting on team development and principles that allow for brokerage and agent growth. No two teams, clients or agents are built the same and neither is a brokerage that supports independent contractors looking to grow their business. It is my pleasure, and privilege, to partner with the top teams helping them grow and build big businesses under the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices umbrella.


When I got my license in 2007 and started Steve Volkers Group that same year, my priority was providing counsel about the process of buying or selling a home to, not only my clients but, also, my team. My mantra, "Knowledge is Power", motivates in to learn and implement the most unique, cutting-edge strategies in the industry. Whether it be listing, buying, marketing or consulting - I make it a point to always keep growing and learning.


Taking on roles like owning a small business or strategic consultation, isn't about telling people what to do. To me, it's about following the lead and guiding those around you. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to do a line of work that grants me so much satisfaction and joy.  I love supporting people and building a culture that inspires my clients, agents and the greater community.


Of all the priorities in my professional life the main one is maintaining work-life balance. I'm a husband and a father and, when I have time to take a breath or two, we take our four kids out to our cottage on the lake. Being a father of four, two adopted and a set of twins, keeps my head spinning but there is no greater reward than the approval and support of my family. They are why I do what I do and motivate me to work my hardest and do my best every single day.
