Living in Southeast Michigan

Southeast Michigan gives you the best of both worlds: all the comforts of urban living and the beauty of the outdoors, all within minutes of each other. There’s so much to offer you’ll never run out of fun things to do.

For the urban minded, the reemergence of downtown Detroit is something worth seeing. Mainstays of the city include the historic Eastern Market, which was popular long before neighborhood farmers’ markets became trendy, and Greektown, Corktown, and Midtown, where interesting restaurants and cultural attractions like the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, and other museums and points of interest, abound. But Detroit has more to offer than ever, with city business leaders committed to revitalizing the area with attractions like Campus Martius – with its noon concert series and food trucks in the warmer weather and its ice rink in the winter – and the new Little Caesars Arena – which welcomes Red Wings and Pistons fans, and concertgoers alike. Detroit is welcoming more visitors than ever. Add to that the beauty of the river walk, where you can look along the Detroit River to Ontario, and all that Belle Isle has to offer, like the Nature Center, Aquarium, and Conservatory, as well as the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, among other attractions, Detroit has something to offer for everyone.

Adding to Detroit’s little-big city feel is all that the Metro Detroit area has to offer. As part of its Motor City heritage, Southeast Michigan is home to The Henry Ford, the National Historic Landmark complex that houses the world renowned Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation and Greenfield Village in Dearborn. As you head north, enjoy the Woodward Dream Cruise, the annual premier summer classic car festival. Within 30 minutes, you can enjoy a concert or play at Meadowbrook Theater or the DTE Energy Music Theatre, or ski at one of the area ski resorts like Pine Knob, Alpine Valley or Mount Holly. In between, you’ll find Oakland County, one of the most sought-after places to live in Metro Detroit, and home to some of the area’s most beautiful inland lake properties. At Vanderhoef Properties, we know this area best. Ask us about real estate in Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Birmingham, Royal Oak, and Troy.

What do they say?

Matt was always available to show us homes when we searched-- we must have looked at over 20 before settling on a place, and not once did he let us down when it came to arranging for us to see a place. When we did land on a place, Matt's knowledge of the market helped us to negotiate a fair price that was under asking. Not only did he help save us money-- the price he suggested came back almost spot on with the amount that the home later appraised for during the processing of our loan. If you are planning to buy (or sell) a home in the near future, do yourself a favor and give Matt a call!

Although most people look back on their home buying experience and are grateful it is over, I had a wonderful experience buying my first home and it was all because of Matt Vanderhoef. I was extremely nervous when it came time to start looking at houses, however, I was quickly put at ease after meeting Matt. His knowledge of the current market and the area I was looking at made the home buying experience a positive one. Not only is he knowledgeable, he is also very responsive. If I had a question, I was always able to get ahold of him. I would recommend Matt to anyone looking to buy a house, especially first-time home buyers!

We had a great experience with Matt in late Spring/summer of 2016. We had moved to the greater Detroit area from Texas and were pretty sure we knew which city we wanted to be in but were largely unaware of the value in some nearby cities. Matt was very responsive in all communication and set up all the showings we were interested in. We weren't having much luck with our budget and desired location, but Matt listened to our wants and needs and made some recommendations of some nearby neighborhoods in bordering cities. We found a house pretty quickly after that! We are in a perfect location for our growing family and our needs. We happily recommend Matt to anyone searching for a home in the Detroit metro area.

I worked with Matt to sell my family home of more than 20 years and cannot say enough good things about working with him. Matt was always professional, knowledgeable, helpful and without exception - available to answer any of my questions (whether by phone, email or text). My house sold very quickly, and the entire process was great due to Matt's hard work and follow through. I would definitely recommend Matt!
