Owner/broker Jake Hogeboom and his father, former NFL quarterback and "Survivor Guatemala" contestant Gary Hogeboom, scanned the field and decided to execute their own vision of what a real estate company could be.

The father-son team recently opened @HomeRealty at 510 Miller Drive in Grand Haven with all local agents. They have a second location in Holland.

“I wanted to create and build something from scratch,” said Jake, 29. “Being a 100 percent local company was a big deal to me. Being a smaller town like Grand Haven, being local means a lot to our clients.”

The Hogebooms partnered with the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation to fund the “@Home Foundation.” The goal is to donate $50,000 per year to local individuals and nonprofit organizations in need.

“It's 100 percent funded by our agents, staff and ownership group,” Jake said. “We've been extremely blessed with a lot of success because of the community we live in. We want to give back to what's made us successful – that's local families and local businesses.”

The Hogebooms have a different game plan when it comes to shopping for a home or land. Their 8,500-square-foot office, the former home of Earth's Edge, also houses Lighthouse Title and North Pointe Bank.
