Experienced buying or selling a home is a complex process. You need someone to represent you who knows the market, the area, the people. Real Estate One is based in Michigan and has been in business since 1929. Through every kind of market, we have prospered. We are the largest broker in Michigan, and one of the largest brokers in the country. Michigan is more than our market. It's our home. Established in 1929 by Staunton Elsea, the company has long been known as an innovator. Many of the marketing tools common throughout the country started here. Real Estate One was the first company to have multiple offices, to create homes books, to create a computerized MLS, and to host Open Houses. Today's generation: Staunton's grandsons and Dick's sons, Stuart and Dan, now Co-Presidents, still focus on innovative and efficient ways to serve our customers. Last year we were involved in over 17,000 home sales in Michigan.
