Our History

In 1970, the developers of the Parkview Hills residential community partnered with an exceptional team of Realtors to handle all aspects of the marketing and management of their new premiere condominiums. They found the right candidates in Margaret Oudsema and Marian Greene – both successful local Realtors – who founded Greenleaf Realty.

While Marian focused on management, Margaret Oudsema built a very successful marketing presence for these upscale condominiums, which included community education about the ins and outs of the condominium concept in Parkview Hills. Greenleaf Realty handled each sale in Parkview Hills individually, insuring accurate, personal service and a smooth transaction for the excited buyers. Eventually, Margaret’s daughter, Carol Oudsema, joined this select team of agents specializing in Kalamazoo area condominium developments.

Today, Carol Oudsema enjoys a prestigious market share in condominium and upscale housing throughout the Kalamazoo County area. The company has remained small; committed to personal, hands-on attention and a high level of professionalism and service.

With the use of the latest technology and excellent support and business partnerships, Carol focuses on spending time with her clients. An excellent support staff ensures that the Realtors can focus on spending time with their clients: listening, evaluating, and finding a suitable buyer or seller to complete a desired move. At Greenleaf Realty, each client is the most important person and we seek to meet our client’s shared goals daily.
