About Us


The RE/MAX Platinum™ office was created in the fall of 2008 when the Michigan Group Realtors and RE/MAX Platinum™ merged. The consolidation of the services of the community’s two largest realty companies created a real estate powerhouse that increased the services it could offer its customers and agents. Four RE/MAX Platinum offices located in Livingston, Genesee, Oakland and Washtenaw counties serve all of Southeast Michigan.

At the time of the merger, the Michigan Group, owned by Joe DeKroub, was the largest single-site real estate company in the state. It merged with the RE/MAX Platinum™ office, owned by Dan Callan and Will Steinmetz, the other major real estate player in the area, with offices in Hartland, Fenton, downtown Brighton and downtown Howell. Consolidating the services of the community’s two largest realty companies created a real estate powerhouse with the ability to increase services to customers at a time when other firms were cutting theirs.

Upon the merger, DeKroub became the Managing Partner and CEO of RE/MAX Platinum. The Michigan Group name was changed and the new RE/MAX Platinum office emerged with more than 150 licensed sales associates and domination of the local market. After the merger, RE/MAX Platinum opened another office in Ann Arbor.

Headquartered in Brighton (pictured below), we have given over [monetary amount] back to our communities, received [number] Peoples Choice awards, and have been nationally recognized year after year as leading Re/Max company with hundreds of awards for sales records, innovation and customer service.

Our Realtors are ready to make your dreams a reality today. Choose the best, choose Re/Max Platinum™.
