Bob De Rose is originally from Hoffman Estates, IL, a northwest suburb of Chicago, IL. De Rose moved to Michigan in 1991 to attend Western Michigan University where he earned a BS from the College of Engineering. He has lived and worked across West Michigan working as a manufacturing engineer for Michigan Automotive Compressors, Herman Miller, Behr, and Dana/Mahle.
In 2001, De Rose began rehabbing homes and became a rental property owner forming Dnal & Emoh Real Estate Solutions, LLC. In 2006, De Rose and other partners formed Derby Real Estate Solutions, LLC. Both companies properties are located in Grand Rapids. De Rose is a member of the Kent County Rental Property Owners Association.
As Michigan’s manufacturing base changed, De Rose took the opportunity to earn his Michigan State Real Estate License, and is now a Realtor ® with Greenridge Realty in Muskegon. As a Realtor ®, De Rose has continued his real estate education with the following classes Residential Relocation, Landlord-Tenant Law, EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting, Rehab and Flipping for Profit, and earned a e-Pro Certification from the National Association of Realtors.
De Rose has lived in Kalamazoo, Holland, Battle Creek, Grand Rapids and now in Muskegon. He is very familiar with West Michigan, which has helped him sell and list properties throughout the region. De Rose now lives with his loving wife, Kelly, in the Muskegon area.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Mona Shores Orchestra Parent Association’s general fund to support our orchestra students. If we reach our goal, no additional fundraisers for the general fund will be held this school year.

A week ago today the Mona Shores Fiddlers performed at the 2018 Michigan Irish Music Fest. Once again it was a privilege and honor to perform at such an amazing fest with so many talented musicians and a fest that does so much for our community. Thank you to all the volunteers that make the MIMF a reality and all the MSO parents that make the Fiddle program possible.
We are looking forward to our own 17th Annual Fiddle Fest on November 10th, 2018. Special guests include Grand Haven High School Orchestra’s Gotak, North Muskegon Orchestra’s Fiddle players, and very special guests Uneven Ground!
