Our Clients Say Nice Things...

“Place + Main Advisors has assisted a number of communities participating in the Redevelopment Ready Communities Program at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. He has also supported communities that were selected for Project Rising Tide, an initiative of the Governor Snyder administration, focused on supporting distressed communities in building a strong planning and economic development foundation. Communities participating in RRC have been drawn to select Place + Main to provide services focused on economic development and he has delivered strategies tailored to each community time and time again. The economic development strategies are heavily focused on implementation, which is a cornerstone for Redevelopment Ready Communities. The strong focus on implementation allows communities to quickly begin to accomplish tasks and prevents plans from sitting on a shelf. Joe also empowers communities to leverage local partnerships and recognizes that success cannot be achieved without collaboration.”

“We worked with Place + Main Advisors as they created an Economic Development and Community Marketing Strategy for Branch County, which included the City of Coldwater, the county, three other municipalities, the Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau. Their work helped clarify our assets and helped us prioritize where we should be putting our resources and efforts to be even more successful in the years to come.” 

Keith Baker

City Manager, City of Coldwater, Michigan

“Place + Main Advisors and Arnett Muldrow & Associates did a great job creating and presenting our Economic Development Strategy as well as the Community Branding & Marketing Strategy. We received very positive feedback from attendees of their presentation. It is evident they put a lot of effort into learning about our community and the residents and took time to capture excellent / meaningful photos of our assets to include in the reports.”

Dave Schaffer

(Former) Township Supervisor, Oscoda Township, Michigan

“Joe Borgstrom (Place + Main Advisors) is a ROCK STAR!  Joe made a trip to Conway, Arkansas in the fall of 2018 to provide the keynote for our Conway Downtown Partnership Annual Meeting, while here he provided needed expertise in the way of Real Estate Transformation Strategies that has led to direct reinvestment in some of our underutilized buildings in our downtown core. I have witnessed him take on several different types of property/development issues and turn them into WINS for the developer. He provided a path forward for a couple of our downtown property owners that had properties that had become stagnate following the retirement of a couple of our longtime retail businesses. He was able to identify some reuses and funding mechanisms for the underused properties and offer transformation strategies that have created real economic change for those owners.”
