Before the Internet, before cell phones, before HGTV’s “ Love It or List It” – there was Huggler, Bashore & Brooks.  Born out of long-standing friendships, the dedicated real estate professionals, Brian Huggler, Martha Bashore and Nancy Brooks continue to guide clients through the real estate world with experience, knowledge and enjoyment.  Over the years they have listened to what their clients’ tell them matters most.  The result is reflected in Huggler, Bashore & Brooks' on-going success, their involvement in the community, and their total commitment to their clients’ satisfaction.  Most importantly, all three of them truly love what they do.  To be so successful for so long, they really have to.


Betsy DeRose, Licensed AssistantBetsy DeRose, Office Manager/Licensed Assistant

Betsy is a lifelong Lansing resident – She is #3 out of her four siblings (middle child…explains a lot, doesn’t it.) She lives an exciting life of baking bread, spending time with her niece and nephews and going to bed at a reasonable hour. Her passions include: playing with her dog, buying things for her dog and…taking pictures of her dog. Before she joined Huggler, Bashore & Brooks she was an Account Specialist at the Michigan Athletic Club for many years. Having lived in Lansing her entire life, she knew Huggler, Bashore & Brooks well and jumped at the chance to join the team and work in the challenging, fast-paced world of real estate.


Ethan Bashore, Licensed AssistantEthan Bashore, Licensed Assistant

Ethan is also a lifelong Okemos / East Lansing / Lansing resident.  He is Martha’s son, which brings with it a fair share of hilarious situations. Currently he lives in East Lansing and that keeps his spirit young, trying to keep up with all the kids. Ethan enjoys a good stir fry, sushi, NFL football and long walks on the beach. A former sandwich artist at Jersey Giant in Okemos, he decided to leave the world of food service and enter the real estate cosmos. He is new to the game, but with the help of Huggler, Bashore & Brooks he’s hoping to take the real estate world by storm.
