RE/MAX of Grand Rapids​

About Darren



If you could pick two words that summarize every
aspect of Amber Wagner’s life, both personally and
professionally those two words would be “Helping
Others.” Amber Wagner, an agent with RE/MAX of
Grand Rapids truly adopts the care giver mentality
to every aspect of her life. By trade she is a veteran
real estate professional with over 15 years of experience.

She puts her experience to use through
her role on the Grand Allure Home Group’s team
where she helps buyers & sellers through every
stage of the home buying process. Many agents
have knowledge about houses, but Amber takes
it to the next level by offering her clients a wealth
of knowledge on the title, and lending side of the
business as well.

In the same way that Amber strives to help clients
find homes that are a perfect fit for them, a career
in real estate is the perfect fit for her. It allows her
to continue to care for her four amazing children,
her mother-in-law, and their two cats (Taco & Bob).

Amber’s clients and friends most appreciate her
commitment & communication. The answer should
never be no, but rather when. As Amber often tells
her clients in real estate, “Just like life, you never
give up, you just work harder,” and she handles
every client and situation with that attitude.

Adam Sims has always loved working closely with people; from management, to teaching and coaching, he has been helping people his whole professional career. Adam also has a lot of interest in the architectural design and construction of different houses. He loves having the opportunity to help his customers sell their unique homes or find just the right home to buy.

Adam is very customer focused and works diligently to satisfy his customer’s needs. Accordingly, his customers value his determination, honesty and communication throughout the entire buying / selling process.

Outside of real estate, Adam’s other passions include his faith, his family, volunteering, and sports like soccer and golf. When he is not working, you may find Adam somewhere on the water relaxing or at home spending time with his family.

At work, Adam is most passionate about finding the perfect home, “the dream home,” for his customers. He thinks one of the most exciting things about his career is being able to watch first hand, how Grand Rapids continues to grow. Having the opportunity to be a part of this great city’s growth, while meeting great customers and families along the way, is an added bonus for him. Adam plans to continue to build a legacy of honesty and hard work, making his mark in the real estate industry. 

In his free time, Darren's energy has always been centered on friends and family. He enjoys fishing, camping, boating and tubing, golfing, breweries, and sporting events.


We are a blended family of 6. Husband Sam and 4 children, Hannah, Hitch, Cooper and Samantha. We love Adventure and are always having fun. During the school year you will find us running our children to dance, football, basketball, cheer and attempting to help with homework :) Summertime we are conquering an amusement park, attending family camp, swimming and soaking up our free time. Family is not an important thing it is our everything! Much love from the Wagner's and Prince's. 


Personally, Brandon loves spending time with his wife and daughter. It is considered a double win if he can watch sports with them—Go Blue, Go Tigers! 

About Adam

Each Office Independently Owned and Operated

I am 27 years old and grew up in Kentwood, MI. I graduated from East Kentwood High School in 2007, and I played soccer and football during my time there. I have been happily married for three years, to my lovely wife Lindsey. We have two daughters; Alexis, who is eight and Emerson, who is two. You will find me with my family most days if I am not working. I have a few hobbies I enjoy doing in my down time. My hobbies include golfing, playing soccer, spending time on the water, playing games, and drawing. The most important thing in my life is Lindsey, my wife. I could not do it all without her.

As a licensed Realtor and Entrepreneur/Investor, Darren has always looked at real estate as more than just selling and buying homes. There truly is a bigger picture that gets over looked. It’s the houses, parks, local businesses, and schools that make up the community. It’s the community you’re buying into and investing in, the location and everything that surrounds it. Darren wants to help you find that house to call home, but also wants to help enrich the community you live in.

Darren is a driven and dedicated individual pursuing his own personal goals and aspirations, but also focused on making an impact in the community and real estate field. Start to finish, Darren is there for you and is willing to put in the time and hard work to make your house-hunting experience enjoyable.

Before pursuing a career in Real Estate, Darren worked six years as a Plastics Engineer & Production Manager for an Injection Molding Company. He has always had a passion and interest in real estate, architecture, and development.

There’s no better place to live than Grand Rapids. With its vibrant downtown, top-performing schools, and a short drive to Lake Michigan, it’s a beautiful, growing area. And it is the place for you.
