What our clients say.

Dawne truly guided me through the process step by step. This was my first time selling. We started working together 3 months before I was ready to market. The guidence she provided in those 3 months helped tremendously with preparing the house for the listing, increasing value and insuring the inspection / closing moved smoothly. I could not have asked for a better experience from start to finish.
Mike sold us our first home ( 2012 ) which went really well. So when we thought about moving we already knew we would have him sell our home and help us move into our new home. Mike was always patient with us and did not try to forcr us into a purchase we did not want. Even when looking at tons of homes he didn't seem to get frustrated. We highly recommend Mike and Team Ripinski.
John & Terran

I seriously cannot say enough good things about Mike and Dawne. You guys are the best ! Thanks you for making a very stressfulexperience smooth, seamless and easy, and for being so available to answer my questions and to put up with my insanity as times:). It's been a pleasure and I will recommend you both to anyone and everyone I can. A + for Team Ripinski "

"It was a great experience to work with Mike again. He was very patient with us during our search of over 40 homes until we finally found the right one. He was always very responsive to all of our emails, calls and texts. He made sure we understood each step of the process and that we were comfortable with everything that was happening. We look forward to working to Mike again in the future. "

Mike and Dawne helped us find the perfect house for our family. They were always paitent and had our best interest at heart at all times.
Jay and Shawna
Dawne was there for us every step of the way, which was achalllenge due to the fact we were exchanging investment properties. Even after closing she continued working with local building and zoning officials to make sure we got proper licensing. Thank you so Much

SOLD home in Clawson - 2015
"She helped guide the sale and tolerated our lack of knowledge with how to sell a house. Dawne was very patient and we are very happy with the result. "

"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.

"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.

­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."
