Monroe North Fitness’s goal is to help you gain strength and give you easy steps to maintaining this new level of fitness.  Whether working with an individual trainer or being part of a Les Mills group fitness class, joining Monroe North Fitness will make and keep you healthier.


To schedule a time to start your training, contact the Monroe North Fitness team at 616-913-9123.


Jon Rooks Boardwalk Condominiums has one more condo, before they are completely sold out.  There is still a chance for you, but don’t delay in contacting Rooks team to schedule a showing of this condo.


Boardwalk is not only filled to the brim with residents, but it is overflowing with more amenities than any other downtown Grand Rapids condo project.  Private pool, onsite restaurant, coffee house, fitness club, parking garage, and 24 hour security are just a few of the amenities that you will enjoy while living at Boardwalk.


The summer is coming to a close and so is the opportunity to own a condo at Boardwalk.  To schedule a time to see all that Boardwalk has to offer, contact Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466 or by email him at


Jon Rooks asks, “With all the advertising telling us about the kids going ‘back to school’, why don’t you do the same?”  In fact he has some extraordinary incentives to get you back to school, or should we say back to an old school.  Jon Rooks and Brad Gruizinga turned the former Union High School into the “New Cool” of downtown Grand Rapids condo living a few years ago.  Since then, they have been accepting applications for “school living”, and they want you to be a part of it.


If you have been thinking about condo living, you should do yourself a favor and head back to school by checking out what Union Square has to offer.  Downtown Grand Rapids has so much to offer by being close to work and play.


There are only 4 available slots left for you to be part of this year’s class of “New Cool”.


Contact Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466 to be part of the great class of 2012.


Rooks and his team at Parkland Properties have been busy this summer selling like crazy.  Now that the kids are on their way back to school, Jon is back to selling more downtown condos.


“Housing affordability is just amazing right now”, Jon Rooks said.  Mortgage rates are close to all time lows and with pricing starting to stabilize, this is an incredible time to look at purchasing a downtown Grand Rapids condo.


Parkland has a deal for you on one of their remaining condos at either Union Square or Boardwalk.  There is special financing that allows you to become part of downtown living with only 3.5% down.  Plus, Union Square has discounted property taxes until 2019 because it is located in a Neighborhood Enterprise Zone (NEZ).


Contact Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466 to see your downtown condo today.


Have you been contemplating living downtown Grand Rapids?  Do you enjoy spending time in downtown with all the many activities and nightlife?  Rooks asks, “Why not just live down here?”


Yes, Grand Rapids is Beer City USA 2012.  You could have a condo close to all the local microbreweries.


Yes, Grand Rapids is home to ArtPrize.  All the preparations are getting put into place for another artistic celebration.  You could have a condo close to the entire buzz.


Yes, Grand Rapids is home to Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.  You could have a condo close to this wonderful medical college and the adjacent award winning Spectrum Hospital.


By owning a Jon Rooks condo at either Boardwalk or Union Square you will be close to all that downtown Grand Rapids has to offer.


And you can do it with only a 3.5% down payment.   That is right, 3.5% down can get you close to all the activities. If that sounds exciting, you better call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466.  He only has 5 remaining condos.  Don’t delay in starting to “live downtown.”


As we come to the end of another summer season here in West Michigan, and get the kids back into school, how about weekend getaway?


Just think about it.  You make arrangements with your parents to watch the kids, and you and your significant make a quick trip over to Shoreline Inn to enjoy their magnificent views of the sun setting over Muskegon Lake.  You take in a romantic dinner at the Lake House Waterfront Grille. After dinner take a stroll together to enjoy the downtown Muskegon nightlife.  Then spend the evening enjoying the company of each other in one of their spacious Penthouse rooms.


Wake up to a new morning refreshed and take a walk on any of the nearby trails that Muskegon County has to offer. Or take a morning swim in either of Shoreline’s outdoor or indoor pools.


There you go. Short trip. Great views. Memory creation. Shoreline Inn!


To reserve your getaway, call 866-727-8483

Before they announce “Gone”, you better contact Boardwalk Condominiums to grab the very last condo they have available.


Jon Rooks and his Parkland team have seen their inventory at Boardwalk reduced to the very last unit.  That is correct.  Boardwalk Condos has one more unit and they will be 100% sold.  You still have a chance, but the announcer is getting ready to declare that the last one is “Gone!”


What are you going to miss out on?


How about an onsite restaurant and bar?  JD Reardon’s is in Boardwalk to give each of its residents a top notch dining experience within the same building.


How about an onsite pool and patio area to cool off or grab a bite from JD Reardon’s?


How about covered parking at no additional cost?  We are in the midst of summer, but….there is this thing around here called winter.  Sure would be nice to not have to clean off your vehicle from the white stuff.


To see all that Boardwalk has to offer with its last available unit.  Call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466.


Jon Rooks of Parkland Properties has low money down for your purchase of a downtown Grand Rapids condo.  Whether it is a move into the “new cool” at the old school house at Union Square or grabbing the last available unit at Boardwalk Condos, Jon has great financing options for you.  The work of his team has been able to gain access to FHA financing options.  You can now purchase a downtown Grand Rapids condo with only 3.5% down.

In a recent CNN Money article by Les Christie, Grand Rapids Michigan was listed on their “Most Affordable” places to live.  Jon Rooks of Parkland Properties would definitely have to agree.  Rooks said, “Over the last couple of months we have seen a large increase in the interest of our downtown condo projects.”  Brad Veneklase, Associate Broker for Parkland, stated that they are down to 1 available unit at Boardwalk Condos and 4 units at Union Square (out of 420 units total).


They both attribute the increase to the tremendous values that Grand Rapids has to offer along the incredible financing opportunities.


Kara Wood, Grand Rapids director of economic development, was quoted, “the city’s economic base, which once relied heavily on the furniture-making industry, has become more diversified. Health care is now a driving force in the local economy.”


Parkland, with their two-redevelopment condo projects, has been a benefactor of the desire to live downtown as buyers are looking to be close to work and the increased restaurant, entertainment and nightlife choices.
