Meet the Team

Lyndsey Schirle - Sales Associate

A creative, detail-driven real estate professional with a passion for leadership and event planning — Lyndsey’s solid background in business administration is the perfect complement to her genuine, magnetic personality. But those are just small parts of what you’ll love about buying or selling a home with Lyndsey.

With an interest in real estate that blossomed at a young age — while watching her parents transform their first starter house into a warm and welcoming family home — Lyndsey’s deep-rooted love for this industry shines in every single interaction with her clients.

Her favorite part of the process? Helping buyers find an imperfect house they can polish into a forever home, just like her parents did. Helping sellers part with a home they’ve always loved, but simply outgrown. Full circle, and every delicate and life-changing step in-between. 

When Lyndsey’s not busy assisting her buyers and sellers, continuing her education and experience with Rachael Veldkamp & Team, or joining them in volunteer efforts within our local community, you’ll find her here: sipping a comforting cup of coffee outside at Rosa Parks Circle, hitting the links, unwinding on a beach day with friends, or enjoying a competitive game of spoons after Sunday dinner with her family.



Dana Waddell - Sales Associate

A kind and caring soul fueled by her passion for uplifting others, Dana brings a sense of lightness and ease to the life-changing real estate process. With her formal education in psychology and years of meaningful experience providing therapy to children and adults on the autism spectrum, Dana deeply understands how to support her clients along the emotional journey of buying or selling a home.

Energized by her love of people and driven to see her clients thrive as they make one of life’s most pivotal decisions, Dana radiates patience and kindness at every step of the process. Her favorite part of helping buyers and sellers? Being the one they can count on to minimize stress and make the real estate experience enjoyable.

When she’s not busy expertly guiding her clients, Dana stays focused on and fueled by investing in her personal health & wellness. Whether that’s hitting a new favorite hiking trail or heading to the beach with her friends and her pup in tow — Dana loves staying active while exploring the best of Grand Rapids.
