Creating Real Estate Happiness

The best real estate experience you’ve ever had. Guaranteed.

Welcome to our world: the west and northwest suburbs of metro Detroit. We live here, we play here, we sell real estate here and we love it here! From the western edge of our territory, Ann Arbor–the home of the “Harvard of the West,” the University of Michigan–to thriving and prosperous suburbs of Detroit–like Canton, Plymouth, Northville, Novi, Livonia and Farmington Hills–all the way around to the class, culture and sophistication of Birmingham on the northeastern edge of our market, our base is full of great places to live, work and call “home.” And that’s what we do: help people find home.

Professional One Real Estate was built to serve. We are a boutique professional services consultancy specializing in the stellar representation of real estate buyers and sellers. Nationally, we’ve been named one of the Most Creative Brands of the Decade and a Beta Brokerage of the Future. And in an industry infamous for its lack of standards, we also have the highest barrier to entry in the all of real estate. We’re small on purpose, because we refuse to lower our standards. But that’s not what matters. What does matter is that we provide each and every client with expert representation developed from decades of serving buyers and sellers at a consistent level of excellence. We advocate for our clients aggressively, ethically and expertly. Our focus is on SERVICE. The only metric that truly matters to us is client satisfaction. We aren’t trying to be the biggest firm. We are committed to being THE BEST. OUR STORY >>

How We’re Different

All real estate companies are the same, right? Wrong. We’re different. No, we REALLY are. How? Here are five things–five important things–we do differently from almost every one of our competitors:

No Transaction Fees


Most of our competitors charge their clients “administrative” or “document retention” fees. These fees can be as high as $595! We won’t charge you any fees of this kind, ever. We will never add in extra fees. It costs you less to work with us. 100% of the time.

Save Money

No Dual Agency


It’s impossible to fully represent a buyer and seller in the same transaction. And yet agents do it all the time. Why? Because it’s legal and because they make more money that way. We’ll never reduce our commitment to you. End of story.

Be Represented

You’ll Work with Us


A dirty little secret of real estate: most “big” agents have large teams, and you’ll quickly understand that it’s someone else you’ll actually work with, not the superstar you thought you hired. When you work with us, you’ll work WITH US.

Work with Experts

We Prioritize YOU


Many agents are entirely self-focused. Their #1 priority is maximizing their personal income. We’ve built our business the old-fashioned way: by being great fiduciaries and always doing what is in YOUR best interest, period. Every time.

Be Prioritized

Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed

We guarantee your satisfaction. There are no catches, and there is no fine print. Prior to the signing of a purchase agreement, any Professional One client can rescind any contractual relationship with Professional One at any time for any reason. This makes working with us literally risk free and it puts pressure on us to deliver and to honor every promise that we make to each and every one of our clients – and we do! This is very simple, actually: your satisfaction is our highest priority. If you aren’t happy with the level of the professional service that we provided to you, we don’t want to profit from our efforts. Finally, consider this: why doesn’t every other company in the industry provide this same guarantee?
