"Stephen did a masterful job in helping us both sell and purchase a home. The sale got us top dollar and full asking price within a week. He was very professional and guided us through every step of the process. This was our first time to sell a house and he made it easy. We also used him to purchase a new house and were glad we did. He was able to negotiate several things with the builder that I didn't even know was possible. Would highly recommend Stephen and would use him again if buying or selling a house!"

"Love this guy! He has sold two homes on my behalf and helped me purchase two homes. I would not use anyone else. Hopefully, I am now in my forever home. But if things change, he's my guy!"

"Stephen is a diligent, professional and fun agent to work with. He’s responsive and very good at finding homes that are just perfect for picky clients like us! We bought and sold our homes through him and he was awesome!! Highly recommend Stephen and his team!!"

"Stephen is a consummate professional. He sold our home within a reasonable time. He is honest, trustworthy, and he has integrity. He communicates often and expertly. He returns calls and text messages. He delivers what he say he can do. If you are looking for a person to sell or buy your home and is family oriented and results oriented, Stephen is your person." - Sherri

"Stephen helped me through the process of my buying my first house. Thanks to him, my experience was pleasant and with minimal stress. Because he took the time to really understand what I was looking for, he was most helpful during home viewings where he was able to identify things he thought I might not like or have trouble with in the future. I really appreciated that he wasn't just trying to sell me a house; he took the time to sell me the right house and now I own the house of my dreams."

"Stephen played a crucial role to achieving our goal of selling our home and purchasing our dream house. To be honest, I didn't think it would be possible. With Stephen's help, we sold our home (which wasn't the most polished) and bought a new home that I didn't think we had a shot at. It was outside our budget, but Stephen was able to strategically negotiate with the sales person to figure out a way to meet our budget. I also really appreciated his communication with us. He was in constant communication, brutally honest, which allowed for realistic next steps. Normally this is where reviews typically end. However, in my experience with Stephen, he has been more of a friend/realtor/go-to-guy for anything house related. Because he went the extra mile (and continues to check-in on us), I would highly recommend his services to help with any real estate needs"

"Stephen is a diligent, professional and fun agent to work with. He’s responsive and very good at finding homes that are just perfect for picky clients like us! We bought and sold our homes through him and he was awesome!! Highly recommend Stephen and his team!!"

"Absolutely loved working with Stephen! I relocated from out of town and he was totally accommodating to my needs and schedule. He listened to what I wanted and advocated for me to make sure we closed timely despite many (unrelated) issues with my unorganized lender. Highly recommend!!" - Shannon

"Stephen Pivach helped me find the home I wanted for a great price and in the middle of a market surge of buyers during the covid pandemic. If you had asked me if this was possible before actually getting the house, I would have said no. This is in a time when the average time on market for the house type and price point I wanted could be measured in hours, not days, and with multiple offers. Stephen's even keel when negotiating with the seller, and his strategic structuring of my offer put us at an advantage against other offers and helped me land the house at the right price." - Matt

"Stephen is the quintessential real estate agent. He was highly recommended, and we leveraged his help and experience to help us relocate from another state to the Austin metro area. He has a process all of his own, with a comprehensive questionnaire that helped him hone quickly and effectively on what home would be the best fit for my family and me. He is not only very responsive and very knowledgeable of the area and the fluctuations of the local real estate market, but he and his entire team also relocated to the Austin area, which gives him an edge on being able to anticipate the particular requirements and needs of someone who is relocating. I was able to purchase our new home sight unseen, even though I had never been to the Austin area, nor did I visit any of the homes in person, which was crucial to do during the pandemic while living out of state. Without question, I'll seek Stephen out for any of my future real estate transactions." - Thompson
