BIRMINGHAM, MI (November 4, 2020) — MainStreet Design Build, the ideal choice for homeowners seeking a luxury design-build residential remodel, announced today the expansion of its sales team coverage in Southeast Oakland County with the hiring of new Sales and Design Manager, Doug Klee. The addition of Mr. Klee to MainStreet’s management team is a “major coup”, according to President and Founder, Steven Ramaekers.

Everyone at MainStreet welcomes Doug as a valuable addition to our team,” says Ramaekers.
Doug grew up in Jackson, MI, and moved to Chicago after obtaining his B.S. from Michigan State University. While honing his skills in the residential remodeling industry, he completed his M.S. from Northeastern University in Adult Learning Theory. His education, plus extensive industry experience, leads Doug to bring a new intensity and high-level of expertise to MainStreet.
“I look forward to providing expanded remodeling services to residents of Birmingham, Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, Pleasant Ridge, Troy, Royal Oak and the Grosse Pointes,” said Doug Klee. “I take pride in my ability to bring unique, efficient and cost conscious results. I’m really excited to lead this team and explore creative solutions for MainStreet’s discerning client.”

He also serves on the advisory board and has earned several distinguished design awards, including Qualified Remodeler Master Designer Award, Build Magazine Best Residential Remodeler, Housing Zone Best Historic Renovation Project, and the Crystal President’s Award: Best of the Midwest.
One of MainStreet’s core values is Pride: We take pride in the level of craftsmanship, attention to detail, and accuracy of our home design and remodeling projects; and in contributing to the preservation of our local community. Doug gives MainStreet clients another level of assurance that they will receive an exemplary home remodeling experience. It is the continuous investment of people and process improvement that reinforces MainStreet’s reliability and financial stability as an industry leader.
Just a note to commend you on a job well done. We now have our dream kitchen! Your crew was great to work with. They were professional, trustworthy and hard working.
Thank you to the entire team for making our home ‘fit’ us! From the first consultation, you understood this wasn’t about trying to make a small house huge. We needed it to suit our lives better, and that is what you gave us.
MainStreet was honest and upfront about the cost of our addition. There were no surprises – they did not low ball up front to add on at the end. The quality and professionalism of the entire team was outstanding. You truly get what you pay for with MainStreet.
We love our kitchen, and MainStreet made that happen! With the help of Steve, Christine and their talented staff, we were able to add a lot more creativity and attractiveness to the design of our kitchen.
Our experience was very positive, we found MainStreet to be very professional, and considerate of our ideas. The job finished very close to the time estimated, which can be rare in that business!
MainStreet’s quality of work was excellent and its employees were very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional.
We love where we live – but we needed to add more space for our growing family. We were impressed with Steve’s design suggestions for better use of space and enhancements to our plans. They really do focus on quality and integrity in every aspect of their work.
They did an excellent job of design. Some very creative design features. They did a great job.
We love our new Kitchen and Mudroom. We appreciate the effort, commitment and quality provided by the entire team at Main Street. Thank you! Kyle and Main Street Team were a pleasure to work with through the build process. The timeline including trades was on target. Co-Construct was an effective way to manage communication and any changes that were delivered throughout the project. The design and deliverables were as expected.
I can’t think of a way that they fell short. I was satisfied with the assistance that I received with regards to picking out the various pieces.
