As a native of Baltimore, Maryland, Steve's interest in real estate started at a young age while attending Sunday open houses with his parents. His dream of living in sunshine and warm weather began a journey west that led him to the University of Arizona. Upon graduation, Los Angeles presented itself organically as the next step. Steve traded the desert and saguaros for the ocean and palm trees of Venice Beach. After establishing himself as a Venice local, he later purchased a home in Silver Lake which peaked his interest in the Los Angeles luxury real estate market. From that point forward he found himself tracking each home sale and each new business opening within his neighborhood, thus realizing that this newfound obsession may be put to good use as a business venture.
Steve joins Compass after working for over a decade in talent representation. As a talent agent, Steve has represented thousands of artists in his career for all aspects of entertainment & music. His clients have traveled the world with artists like Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, P!nk, Snoop Dogg, and Katy Perry. His clients have appeared on stages from Broadway to Las Vegas as well as many feature films, commercials, and television programs. Steve's success in entertainment stemmed from his unwavering commitment to his clients and his ability to act as an extension of the person he represents. His life passion is to work on behalf of others to help see their dreams come to fruition thus making a seamless transition from entertainment to real estate.
Steve currently resides in Silver Lake with his husband and 4 dogs. He loves brunch in the neighborhood, activism within his community, a morning run around the Silver Lake reservoir, Saturday morning yoga, and dancing to live music.
