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.”

This company is first-rate. Each member of the team is respectful, attentive, knowledgeable, and kind. The experience thus far has been enormously positive.
“I just wanted to let you know that even though summer is almost over we still get compliments on the work you did on our front porch. We are sitting on the porch now and we always have people walking by on their way to the beach…..we are constantly told how beautiful our house looks. Thank you for everything and please pass this along to Kyle and everyone else.”
Christopher provided the vision and helped execute the plan. He was so helpful guiding me in all selections and making sure we stuck to our plan. My kitchen refresh is everything and more. My kitchen now looks like it belongs in my home and really is a “wow” feature. I just love, love, love the way it came out!
My husband and I give our absolute highest recommendation for MainStreet Design Build! They’ve worked on many projects big and small for us over the past few years — from a total home office design/build to conquering a longstanding drainage issue outside the home. They’ve introduced us to stellar people in the industry — their handyman Marq, painters, plumbers, carpenters. Everybody is first class. MainStreet project manager Dwain is on my speed dial list as he’s helped us out so many times with projects or problems at our home. He is knowledgeable, dependable and just always has a great attitude. Will hope to have some photos of our beautiful MainStreet home office posted soon. Thanks Steve and Christine!
Main Street did our complete home remodel in 2020-2021. They were perfect professionals, and we never had any of the problems that we ran into with EVERY.OTHER.CONTRACTOR.IN.EXISTENCE. I cannot recommend them enough!
The design team was very helpful. The bathroom turned out beautiful in the end. Very courteous and professional staff. Very detail oriented. They have a team that has many excellent design ideas. The workmanship also was excellent.
“We hired Main Street Design Build for our laundry room and kitchen remodel. Like most people, we were nervous to take on such a large project, but after our first meeting with Steve, our nerves were put to rest. The entire staff exceeded our expectations at every stage of our project. The attention to detail, beautiful design options and finishes and level of communication that they offer is unique. It was an A+ experience from the office staff/designers/skilled trades and of course, our amazing project manager who made everything run smooth, on schedule, and on budget. We now have a beautiful kitchen and laundry room that we love to show off – and everyone who has seen it is equally impressed (and a little jealous). We can’t wait for our next project.”
Main Street has been terrific throughout our project so far. We are pleased with the level of service we have received.
I was most satisfied with how MainStreet stepped up to the plate on several material defects and immediately replaced and/or fixed the issue with no questions asked.
Mainstreet is top notch!! They make your visions come to life and have such great ideas to help make it that much more!! The people at Mainstreet are the best!! I was very comfortable and trusted all who came into our home, some started to feel like friends/ family. When they finished our kitchen I actually missed seeing them!! Highly recommend Mainstreet!!
