BVW Property Management was founded in 2005 to bring the appeal of this special place to the rest of the world. From its start as a one-man operation, the Holland, Michigan-based company has grown steadily.

It now employs 18 people and manages more than 1,500 properties, both vacation homes and year-round rentals. BVW's experienced staff manages every aspect of the properties the company represents, from marketing to maintenance, and provides customer service with the neighborly hospitality for which West Michigan is known.
