Our founder

When Mai completed her MBA at Central Michigan University, she had two job offers: one in an industry she had worked in and one in affordable housing. On the advice of a professor, she chose the latter – and that set her on the path to a rewarding career assisting individuals and families find high-quality affordable housing.

As the founder and Manager of Brookstone Realty Management, Mai brings a strong background in marketing to her role. Mai believes “great housing start with great design,” which is why all Live Downtown Grand Rapids properties are built and maintained to the highest multifamily industry standards of quality. The portfolio offers a mix of renovated and re-envisioned adaptive reuse buildings with new construction aimed to complement the neighborhoods in which they are built.

Preserving downtown Grand Rapids’ historical buildings is important to Mai and her team. From their 140-year-old leasing office at 101 S. Division Ave., the team manages 10 apartment buildings, fully half of them in historic buildings.

Mai credits her property management team with the success of Brookstone Realty Management, noting that their hard work, dedication and passion for serving residents underscores every aspect of the business. “Our work is only possible because of the great team we have,” Mai notes. “Bringing in people from different backgrounds gives us tremendous diversity of ideas and allows us to fulfill our mission of providing affordable housing that is indistinguishable from high-end market-rate housing developed around communities.”
