Midland, MI 48640
Uniquely Badger….Uniquely Ayre/Rhinehart Bay
Ayre/Rhinehart Bay started with a phone call in early January 2011 when a large group of agents were leaving their current broker, searching for something different. As a result, on April 29 2011, Ayre/Rhinehart Bay opened its innovative storefront. They were a band of risk takers being led by a guy most had heard of but didn’t know well. The company is now run by the collective team and the two managing partners, Melissa Beckrow and Jim Diedrich. Badger is involved for support, guidance and leadership at all levels. His experience as a partner at Ayre/Rhinehart Realtors in Midland since 2001, as well as one of Mid-Michigan’s top real estate agents, has brought unique insights to Ayre/Rhinehart Bay. Badger wanted to create a state of the art environment for privacy and collaboration, technology and mindset, and unparalleled agent training collectively with transparent, consistent, and open support. “We developed this for the agents in order for them to provide a better experience for our clients and affiliate relationships.” Both our agents and their clients are special and we focus on both.
