I highly recommend Pete Bruinsma. I worked with him as an out-of-state investor from California, and I found the exact type of place that I was looking for. He took video of the property, offered honest advice, negotiated a good purchase price, and I even found a tenant through his property management company Life Cycle Property Management. Would absolutely work with him again in the future.
Pete was ready and able to help in our fixer upper house hunting process which stopped and started over a period of a few years. He was always willing to assist in the hunt and the bidding process on houses which required knowledge of the foreclosure business and hud house bidding. His response was immediate in providing area comparables and giving us helpful tips. He helped negotiate and research city lien issues as well as bank/lawyer/and more bank issues. He certainly earned his modest commission on the great house we ended up with.
Kory, I just wanted to take some time and thank you for all you have done for us in not only managing our properties at Carrier Creek but also all the work you do in the community to enhance and make it a nicer place for everyone!!
Twenty some years ago my wife and I bought our first rental property, a duplex. After a few months with all the headaches, I sold it and never wanted another rental property again. About four years ago, I met you who helped us have a different vision of what rental property ownership could be. We bought those 2-4 unit buildings on Carrier Creek and you have done an excellent job of not only managing those rentals for us but also contributing to the over all well being of the neighborhood. Your community interest and pride runs much deeper than just managing rentals. You are very involved wit the neighborhood association and encourage others to do the same.
You showed us by your personal example of how to operate a rental property and how we could benefit from “raising the bar”. We have benefited greatly from this vision and practice as we have had excellent tenants which leads to a much more enjoyable property owner experience. Thanks again, keep up the good work and as always!
Life Cycle Property Management is a great Management company. I have two properties with them, and I am very pleased with their service. They are very professional and on point with their work. I have used other management companies before but never had great service like Life Cycle Property Management provided. Pete is a great leader of the company and knowledge that he brings is awesome, since he knows the areas so well. I would never change my management company going forward. I wish all management companies worked like Life Cycle. Thanks Pete and his staff for all the hard work.

I’ve worked with Pete to find investment property in the past. He has often had great insight as well as timely leads. The kind of leads that can help you get into a property that has yet to hit the open market or a sale that has. As an investor himself he has also been a great sounding board for pricing and neighborhood dynamics. If you are looking to make wise choices in the tough business of real estate investment, be sure to include Pete in your plans.
Pete was very helpful advising me what I had to do to sell a rental property in the bottom of the real estate market. He responded to my questions promptly and managed all the details of the process. I highly recommend him.
Pete listed my rental property for me and then I left the country. Within a short period of time he had a buyer and guided me through the sell even though I was not here. I am sure it was a bit challenging for Pete at times, with me being out of the country but he excelled in doing the best professional job that he could for me. I would recommend Pete Bruinsma to anyone selling or buying a property.
Pete’s been with us through several transactions and has always looked out for us. He’s an excellent scout for investment property, and has all of the connections to see a deal through from start to finish.

Pete has helped our business with a number of investment properties. We have worked with Pete on multi-units, duplexes, and single family homes, going through listings, short sales, auctions, and foreclosures. Pete’s market awareness, his understanding of the deal, and his communication with us through every step has helped our business succeed. Pete is outgoing and professional; he knows his craft and it shows. We count him as a friend, a colleague, and a partner.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done for us during the past year. Not only were you able to negotiate the price we offered but before our closing meeting, you were able to provide information to the Board of Directors for our condo association regarding an irregularity in their rules. Your knowledge and application of The Elliott-Larson Civil Rights Act as well as providing a copy of the law went a long way at our meeting with the board to aid us in allowing our son to live there. The president of the Board seemed grateful to have your assistance especially since they were going to be meeting with their lawyer soon about their contract with the condo owners. Again, we cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us.

I have had the pleasure of working with Pete on numerous real estate purchase transactions over the past year. It quickly became clear that Pete is not your typical real estate professional. His dedication, professionalism, and integrity far exceed the standard for the industry. I recommend Pete without reservation.
Pete did a great job, he really worked hard for us. We will trust him for years to come to buy and sell our investment properties.
