our clients say

Today my wife and I closed on our home and we have Brick & Mortar Team to thank for everything! This is my second go around with Jeremy and the team after we bought our condo a couple years ago. With my wife now expecting our first child in April we knew we needed more space and we knew just who to call- Brick & Mortar Team. Jeremy went above and beyond to meet our realtor needs. Not only was he very professional, informative, and quick to act on our behalf but he is also someone that I could be vulnerable with. I could ask questions and share concerns with him and he was always willing to provide advice and input on my personal situation. After sharing countless conversations on the phone and in person I now see Jeremy as more than just my realtor, he’s practically family.

Thank you Brick & Mortar Team!

We bought our first home 3 years ago with the help of this awesome team. We were in a time crunch, as the lease on our apartment was almost up. Our first day out, we looked at three properties, and we ended up buying the first house we saw! And to top it off – there were 7 other offers on the house but WE GOT IT ! These guys helped us find the perfect first home in the perfect area to start our little family. Fast forward 3 years, 2 dogs, and 2 kids later – and we are just about ready to have the Brick & Mortar Team help us find our next home! Can’t wait to work with you again!

Being in the mortgage industry for 4 years, specifically as a Purchase Loan Originator, I know how important it is to have great realtors to work with in order to ensure your client is getting the best service possible during one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make in your life. I work with the Brick and Mortar Team on a regular basis to ensure that my clients are getting the highest level of service possible. Anyone I know who is buying or selling a home in the Metro Detroit area is immediately referred to the Brick and Mortar team. They have assisted in buying and selling homes for me, my immediate family, closest friends and multiple co-workers here at Quicken Loans! It takes a lot to earn the trust to be referred to family members or close friends because you are putting your reputation on the line. Knowing this, I wouldn’t feel comfortable letting my family and friends work with anyone else. Working with this team has shown me that it is possible to have a high level realtor who genuinely cares about their clients.

There’s no way I wouldn’t recommend this team. Michael was efficient, knowledgeable, and responded to all my texts and calls in an incredibly prompt manner. He helped me every step of the way, and ultimately helped us purchase our dream home. The whole team was exceptional, and if I had to go through this process again, I would definitely use them a second time. Thanks for everything! Highly recommend!!

We could not have asked for a better buying and selling experience from Jeremy and his team. They sold our condo in 24 hours! Jeremy was very helpful and understanding throughout the buying process, and helped to make sure we got our perfect home in a tough seller’s market. Jeremy has great integrity and will be completely honest and open with you. He spent plenty of time on the phone with us answering questions and always made sure he had our best interest in mind. Thank you Brick & Mortar Team!

Mike has been in the Real Estate Industry since 2009 and has been loving it ever since. He is truly passionate about helping people from all walks of life purchase their dream home and his patience and drive for a good deal shines through in each transaction. He never encourages clients to purchase a home in order to make a sale because he hopes to have a continued relationship with them after the papers are signed at the closing table! This same mentality is taken when it comes to listing a client’s home as well. He is honest about home values and all his past clients are appreciative of that honesty. We sell them quickly, but also for top dollar!

Personally, Mike enjoys traveling with his wife, Andrea, of 2 and half years and has been fortunate enough to see much of Europe! But he still has the itch to see more! Mike loves gathering around a dinner table and experiencing food and culture with friends and family. It is at the dinner table, that he believes true community is developed! He can often be found on the weekends checking out a new restaurant in the metro Detroit area and would love to offer tips to you! As a hobby, Mike is an amateur wood worker!

Mike and his wife are actively involved at their church, Kensington, and love to volunteer their spare time at the info desk, hosting a small group in their home for young marrieds and other various events held through the church!

Kevin’s passion, accountability and honesty in dealing with each of his clients makes him a perfect fit for the Brick & Mortar Team. In his career, Kevin has been involved in all types of transactions, from complex estates to single family residences. His experience has provided him the knowledge that empowers buyers and educates sellers when navigating through the modern Metro Detroit real estate market. Kevin goes the extra mile to ensure his clients are treated like family and not like just another sales transaction. Kevin is a top producer, helping to drive his team towards the receiving of honors from Real Estate One and Hour Media in 2016! He prides himself in delivering top-notch service and is always striving to make his client’s experience flawless.


In his personal time Kevin enjoys spending time with his growing family as he and his wife Kate just welcomed their first child into the world! Kevin and his wife love checking out new restaurants and traveling. He is also a solid golfer and can often be found on the course on the weekend with his grandpa or some good buddies.

Jeremy’s incredible work ethic and passion for his clients make him a perfect fit for the Brick and Mortar Team. He has almost 15 years of sales experience! This experience helps him negotiate optimal deals for all of his clients. Jeremy’s knowledge and expertise in the “new construction” sector of real estate is invaluable for those clients looking to build a fully custom dream home. He can help you find the perfect lot and provide protection and insight throughout each building phase. Since Jeremy was a teenager he has had a passion for real estate and the long term wealth it can provide through strategic investments. He currently manages his own personal portfolio of rental homes and would love to assist those looking to start their own rental home portfolio so they too can experience long term financial freedom.

In his personal time, Jeremy loves laughing and hanging out with close friends. Most importantly, his favorite thing to do is take his wife Chelsea and their four kids up north to their family cottage. In the winter, they take vacations down in Florida to get away from the cold!

Milad is one of the newest additions to our Brick & Mortar team. His combined experience in real estate and home financing dates back to 2014. One of Milad’s most noticeable traits is his passion for perfecting the client experience and going above and beyond to make sure all of his clients are happy and satisfied.

Responding with a sense of urgency and allowing no exceptions to get in the way of helping clients every time is the core foundation of his business model. Milad is also bilingual. He speaks Arabic fluently which allows him to better communicate with our Arabic speaking community and help them achieve exactly what they are looking for.

Personally, He loves to travel and get to know different cultures around the world. He’s been to Germany, Poland, France, Jordan, Lebanon and Greece and wouldn’t mind spending most of his retirement traveling and getting to know people of different cultures. Milad also loves soccer and would argue he was one of the best soccer players back when he was able to run without having to stop every 5 minutes to take a break.

Dave is NOT your typical realtor. Heard that before? Well here is his quick bio. After high school he attended the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and graduated near the top of his class with a degree in Systems Engineering. Following that he attended Naval Nuclear Power School enroute to his first duty station in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, as a commissioned officer aboard a fast attack submarine. Following three years of subsurface life ( there was some fun in the sun sprinkled in there), he had the distinct privilege to stay in Hawaii and work with the Navy SEALs as an Operations Officer for three more years.

Having met his wife in Hawaii (a native Michigander!), it was time to get out of the military and start a family. They moved to Chicago and two years of arduous schooling later, he earned his Senior Reactor Operator’s License from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to operate and lead watch teams in the commercial nuclear power sector. After five years of worked holidays, missed weddings, and watching his son grow up without him, he decided to change gears in life, move to Michigan to be close to family, and get his Real Estate license, one of his lifelong passions.

Dave wants everyone that reads this to understand that he brings to the table a superior work ethic, and as you have read, he’s done this for his whole life. Nothing has come easy to him, everything has been earned. One of his main Core Values his lives by centers entirely around Service to Others; the more he give and helps, the more fulfilled he becomes
