What our clients say.

Purchased a home in Clawson - 2015
"Mike  was looking out for my best interests right from the start. He didn't just show houses to me, he really looked into the houses and offered his opinions, making sure I knew the positives and negatives of each one. He was quick to respond to me and I felt he always put me first. It was a pleasure to work with Mike.

Mike always made sure I understood what was going on, I trusted him fully."

Purchased a home in Beverly Hills - 2015

Even though finding our home took 1 year, Mike never gave up and helped us find the perfect opportunity. During every step, Mike insured we knew what was happening and what needed to happen. He went beyond normal service knowing that our travel schedule made things complicated. I have no doubts recommending Mike and his wife Dawne.

"Mike was excellent."­ We had a few issues with scheduling closing and availability but we worked through it and

everything went well . He was paiteint, professional and knowledgeable. ­" Mike was fantastic."


Sold Home in Farmington Hills - 2015

"I met Dawne when she was offered as a contact when I was looking to buy my first home. It was such a good experience that I asked her to help me sell that home four years later. When buying, we went out and viewed houses only twice. The first day, she showed me some decent places. When we went out the second day, she had really grasped precisely what I was looking for and just hit a home run finding me exactly the right place. As a first-time buyer, she really took the time to walk me through what is a very scary process. She went out of her way to help me over all the hurdles. She was personable and worked aggressively to help me find a home. I knew choosing her to help me sell the house was the right decision.


Sold a Royal Oak Home - 2015

"Mike Ripinski was our primary agent and Dawne was a pleasure to work with as well. He was knowledgeable about the market in terms of pricing the home. We loved the professional pictures that were taken for the website. He always returned phone calls and emails quickly. He also was integral in helping us purchase our new house. He guided us through the process but also took care of the things he could. The girls from their office who would call to inform us of the showings were always professional and friendly. We have recommended him and Dawne to several people already.

Heidi & Tom

Sold a Royal Oak Condominium - 2015.­ It was a comfort to work with friends. It's never easy to sell a parent's home after their death. I'm glad we were working with you two!

Cindy­& Doug

Purchased a home in Oak Park - 2015

­We already had chosen an agent but she was not responding to us quickly enough. Mike was recommended by our mortgage lender so we decided to contact him. Since the first day he was always very responsive and accomdating to our busy work schedules."

Danielle & Bryan

Sold a home in Royal Oak - 2015

"Dawne Ripinski is a very professional agent who I would call an expert in her field. And yes, I would most certainly recommend­Team Ripinski­to friends/family/co-workers, anyone looking for that perfect home buying/selling experience!"

Nancy - Royal Oak­

Purchased a home in Ferndale - 2014

Being new to the area, I found Dawne through Zillow on a Friday evening and heard from her less than 24 hours later - and she apologized for her delayed response. I knew we'd get along! Dawne and her husband work as a great team to ensure they can show you a home in a hot area as soon as it comes on the market and attend to all needs of their other clients. She's knowledgeable about the area, was incredibly professional, yet kind, understanding and patient with me as a buyer. She then fought for me to ensure I received not a penny less than fair - and even met several contractors at a property when my work schedule wouldn't allow me to do so. I would recommend­Team Ripinski­to anyone - a refreshing alternative to Chicago agents I previously dealt with that treated me like their least-important priority because of my budget. I love my new home and owe all the credit to Dawne!


Sold single family home in Clawson Mi.

Team Ripinski sold our home very quickly! They are a real pleasure to work with - helpful, friendly, and professional. They also did a great job communicating with us during each step of the selling process. I highly recommend them!


Sold a Single Family home in Clawson, MI.

I found Mike on Zillow and selected him after our first conversation. He knows what he is doing and made the process very easy. He told us what we needed to do to sell the house and after following his instructions our house had an offer within just a couple of weeks. He is excellent at keeping you up to date and answering your emails, texts, and phone calls. This was important for us because we were no longer living in the area so we couldn't check up on the house. We couldn't have been happier with the whole process.....Andrew

Bought a single family home in Royal Oak MI.

These two are awesome! They helped us find our first home earlier this year and we are still faliing in love with it every day. Team Ripinski was there to show us properties on the day the came available to make sure we had a shot at them. They were very patient during our search and when it came down to finalizing on our home, the process was incredibly smooth. We felt taken care of throughout our entire home buying process. These two know the area very well and hone in on what you are looking for. We have recommended them to all our friends and family.......Christine and Scott.
