Birmingham, MI – September 2021 – MainStreet Design Build, a local leader in luxury design-build residential remodeling, is celebrating its 30-year anniversary. In 1991, Steve Ramaekers, the CEO and president of MainStreet Design Build, set out with a vision to bring design and construction excellence to homeowners who valued remodels delivered with a craftsman’s eye for details; frequent, reliable communication; and a fixed price construction budget. Over the course of the last thirty years, MainStreet’s vision has become a reality. The company has grown from a small niche remodeling firm to a sought-after, innovative residential design and construction pioneer. This $2.5 Million company in 2013 grew to $7.5 Million in 2021—just 8 short years. It also grew 120% (from 10 staff in 2013 to 22 in 2021), and is still hiring.
In 2021, MainStreet moved to a larger office, which expanded their center for excellence to accommodate the growing number of clients and office and field staff.
Powerful testimonials from MainStreet clients dating back to 1999 share their stories working with this family-owned company.
Company founder and CEO, Steve Ramaekers remarked, “This is an incredible milestone for any company. 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. Thankfully, we have achieved this success with the hard work, passion, and dedication of our entire team—the designers, carpenters, project managers, management, sales, and office support. In October, we will be celebrating this achievement together, looking back at where we started, what we have achieved, and what our plans are for the future.”
“To this day, MainStreet is driven by the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder, which has enabled us to push new boundaries and expand our service offerings, said Christine Ramaekers, Vice President, who co-founded the company 30 years ago. “Our strategy of working closely with clients to preserve their dreams and see their remodel or interior design through completion has enabled us to foster a culture of innovation and process efficiency. I’m proud to say that our team today is as strong as it has ever been.”
“I think what is important to Christine and I as we move forward,” Steve remarks, “is the continued legacy of this company to see the fruits of our labor carry on, however that looks like.”

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.
