What's The Diff?

The things Quicken Loans team members care about and want to share with the world

Who Will Call Detroit Their New Home After 5 O’clock?

Quicken Loans new home was once again featured in the Detroit Free Press today! This time the main focus wasn’t the move into the Compuware Building downtown, but rather, the employees themselves and how they will acclimate to the transition from Livonia.

Home_img01As everyone is preparing for the big move, some will even choose to pick up their lives and move downtown with the company.” Go big or go home,” right!? Some Quicken Loans employees have recently toured downtown lofts and apartments to possibly make their new home. With the development of fresh, innovative real estate buildings downtown, there many options to choose from.

What do I think about this?

I love it! I think living in a unique loft downtown Detroit would be awesome, especially when work is right around the corner. Living in the city puts you at the heart of everything and the possibilities are endless in Detroit. People who aren’t from around here may call me or anyone else crazy for even considering this, but Detroit seems to hold a bright future in its hands. As a recent college graduate, the career and life decisions I make right now will affect my life forever. I see the decision to move downtown Detroit as an exciting opportunity to take advantage of taking part in its re-birth. It may be taking a chance, yes, but you will never know what might have been unless you take these chances.

Mayor Bing has set an appealing future for Detroit that makes people want to have faith and believe in the city. Just that alone is a huge step forward. The attitude of the city is changing, people are positive and businesses are striving to be best. School systems are turning around and urban blight is being transformed into urban gardens, one of the most efficient “green living” ideas. The movie industry is currently booming in Detroit and surrounding cities also, so a lot of different things are happening right now.

Living downtown Detroit will create many business, networking and social opportunities. I don’t think anyone can reach their full-potential (professional and personally) without these three things. So, all the more reason to make the move! People really have love for Detroit and it shows. Why not be a part of all the action and embrace Quicken Loans new home!?

  1. I believe this to be very true. Detroit is actually a nice area to live in and with the movie industry booming, many opportunities may arise. Not to mention with the areas professional sports teams making a move toward the top, it makes for better and greater buisness opportunities.
