Birmingham, MI, May 15, 2018—Steve Ramaekers of MainStreet Design Build recently returned from a Mentors Meeting of Remodelers Advantage Roundtables, an industry think-tank for top remodelers. Eleven executives from across the United States and Canada met in Key West, Florida to provide each other with input on an array of performance metrics that they each submitted, comparing their companies’ performance to those of their peers. Members of this group were from Ohio, Michigan, New York, Virginia, Missouri, and Lakefield, Ontario.
The three-day industry conference focused on best practices in the remodeling industry and provided practical business management solutions to improve and strengthen the results that they reported on. Individual sessions included managing remodeling projects, sales and marketing strategies, and new design trends. Daily programs included strategic focus groups and roundtable discussions.
Achieving Mentor Group status is no easy task either. Remodeler’s Advantage Mentors like MainStreet Design Build need to have been in business a minimum of 10 years, show retained earnings as a positive number on the balance sheet, reach a Total Owners Compensation of 4% of revenue as a three-year average, and much more. As a new Mentor Group member last year, Ramaekers won the Idea Factory cash award for bringing the most innovative idea to the group.
“This is one of the most powerful influences on my business,” said Steve Ramaekers. “With the help of an amazing network of peers I am able to continuously hone all areas of my business, from sales and marketing to design and construction. Ultimately, this means we can continuously improve the home remodeling experience for our clients in Southeast Oakland County.”

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.
