Real Estate One's History
Continuing the family tradition, Dick’s sons, Stuart and Dan, are now the third-generation owners of Real Estate One Family of Companies. Stuart and Dan focus on innovative and efficient ways to serve our customers. They also took part in acquiring two additional real estate brokerage brands. In 1995, Real Estate One gained Johnstone and Johnstone Realtors, a well-respected Grosse Pointe firm that was established in 1919. Seven years later, the family grew larger with the addition of Max Broock Realtors. Established in 1895, Max Broock first showed desirable farm property in Detroit. That subdivision later became part of what is known now as Virginia Park, a historic Detroit neighborhood. Between 1937 and 1960, Max Broock Realtors developed many of the luxury residential communities in the greater Birmingham and Bloomfield area into what they are today. In 2013, the family company grew from a total of seven to eight companies with the acquisition of The Charles Reinhart Company. Reinhart was founded in 1971 by Charles Reinhart. With the largest market share in the greater Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County area, Reinhart has a solid history of being an area sales leader.
The Real Estate One Academy was created in 1929 to assist people who wanted to start a real estate career as well as offer a variety of courses designed to build experienced sales associates’ careers. Educating our sales associates with quality classes reflects in their performance.
Real Estate One Family of Companies not only serves the community, but also betters it. In 2004, the Real Estate One Charitable Foundation was established in celebration of the company’s 75th Anniversary. Since its creation, the foundation has raised over 1.7 million for various local and national organizations. The charitable foundation works closely with Special Olympics Michigan, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Alzheimer’s Association, and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Forgotten Harvest and Child & Family Services.
