30 years of building, design

Thirty years in business for any company is a significant milestone, but in local real estate, it’s monumental. In 1991, Steve Ramaekers, the CEO and president of MainStreet Design Build, 555 S. Old Woodward, Birmingham, never could have imagined the legacy he and his wife, company vice president Christine Ramaekers, created. “It was always my vision to uphold our promise to deliver innovative designs and quality construction while walking people through the entire design and construction process. By doing our job right, we would earn our clients trust and develop long-lasting friendships,” Steve said. MainStreet Design Build is a full service, luxury design build firm that caters to homeowners in Oakland County who value a high level of comfort and trust in knowing that their home remodeling project will be done well while fitting their budget, lifestyle, comfort level and the architectural detail of their home. The residential design and building firm takes clients right from concept through architectural designs to interior design all the way through construction. “We’ve worked hard to make sure all our departments are well-run and we have the best people in them,” said Christine, whose background and specialty is design, spaces and selections while Steve oversees operations and is the creative director of architecture and sales. “We are very happy we have cultivated the very best people.” Since 2013, MainStreet has grown to a staff of 22, plus their trade partners. “It’s always been very important to not lose our culture – that’s the number one thing for our company and our customers,” Christine said. Steve concurred, “We have always operated under the ‘clients for life’ motto.”
