Sara Bos

United Bank

Hi, I’m Sara! I’m a Residential Mortgage Lender helping people with home loans at United Bank.  I'm a GVSU alum, was born and raised in Holland, Michigan and I continue to call this beautiful place home.

Financially empowering and educating people in my community is one of the main reasons I became a Mortgage Lender. I enjoy guiding my clients through the home buying process while providing excellent communication, creative financial solutions, and amazing service to people in all walks of life. I would love the opportunity to be part of your team, working alongside you and your Realtor or Builder to bring you home!

When I’m not working, you can find me enjoying the outdoors in any season with my husband, two kids and our lab, having a dance party in the kitchen, hanging downtown Holland with friends, petting a dog or out for a run.

Let's connect! I'd love to learn more about you.

Shannon Dykstra

Attorney Adam Zuwerink - West Michigan Law, P.C.

As Director of Client Services at West Michigan Law, it is my pleasure to help draft legal documents, manage client workflows and estate plan signings, and collaborate with other professionals. It is my privilege to ensure attention to detail in all of it - because our work will affect your future, and the future of others. 

I studied Political Science and Religion as a Hay Scholar at Carthage College. Focusing specifically on Public Law and Judicial Politics, these studies fueled my love for justice and excellence as a part of the every day. I graduated summa cum laude with an award for “Outstanding Senior in Political Science.” 

I am an Ambassador with the West Coast Chamber of Commerce, a member of Inforum, and I formerly served on the board of directors for the Noon Rotary Club of Holland. Networking and continuing education enhance my ability to serve people and promote growth in all areas of our community.

I currently reside in Holland, Michigan with my wonderful husband Lucas, a fellow Carthage College alum. We currently have four children. (Ask me why we need more foster parents in Michigan!) I love learning ballet as an adult and going for hikes with my Doberman-Lab mix, Dublin. 

Rachel Karhoff

State Farm Insurance - Karhoff

Rachel is a Michigan Native and lives in Byron Center with her husband and high school sweetheart with their 2, soon to be 3 children. A graduate of Michigan State University, GO GREEN! She has been serving the entire state of Michigan as an insurance professional for 15 years, and has been the owner of the Zeeland State Farm agency since 2018. Rachel is passionate about building relationships and being a resource in her community for insurance and financial services. She loves being able to help others by getting them coverage that fits what their needs are and works in their budget. In her free time Rachel enjoys spending time with family and friends, checking out a local coffee shop, trying out a new restaurant, traveling, and spending time outdoors. 

Aris Knitter-Lee

Five Star Real Estate Lakeshore, L.L.C.

Professional. Dedicated. Neighbor.

I love my job because I get to spend my time working with clients to help them achieve their home ownership goals. Those goals can look very different from client to client. And even very different for the same client at different stages of life. I am honored when I am asked to walk along side my clients for what is usually one of the largest investment decisions one makes in life.

Each person or family brings a unique situation to the home buying and selling process. And that is just how I treat each one. I strive to meet the individual needs of each of my clients.

Being a life long resident of Western Michigan, I understand why people want to move to or remain living in the area. I've helped many families relocate to the area and its such a wonderful thing to share that experience with them, to see my home town area through their eyes. It makes me love where I live and love what I do even more.

Eric Krupiarz

Northwestern Mutual - Staat

"My Impact Will Always Be Remembered" 

The WHY statement above is the relentless motivator everyday to impact my client relationships, community members, and most of all my family. I enjoy being a connector within the community and use my platform to elevate people and businesses personally, professionally, and financially. 

My work locally on the Lakeshore is to bring value through creative solutions to everyday "what ifs". These "what if's" traditionally come in the form of planning financially for the future of families and closely held businesses. Instead of just focusing on the numbers, my desire is to understand what money means to you and build an effective plan that allows for clarity, and true financial independence. 

Specialties Include: 

Wealth and Investment Management

Employee Retention Strategies 

Business Succession and Buy-Sell Funding

Education Funding

Retirement Distribution Planning

Life, Disability, and Long Term Care Insurance Planning 

You would also find me facilitating the local Ottawa County Guys Who Give Chapter - a local philanthropic organization designed as a catalyst to give to those in need within the community. 

When I am not face to face with clients, or out in the community my passions are playing hockey and golf and above all to make memories traveling with my beautiful wife Ashley, and sons Smith and Brooks.
