"We have used Steve as our agent for three properties in the past several years. I would personally never consider using another agent. Steve is extremely responsive and timely in his communication, he is a highly knowledgeable professional, with the experience to represent you in any real estate transaction. Steve is honest and trustworthy. His work ethic is impeccable and he does it all in a very friendly manner. His negotiation skills are second to none and we felt thoroughly represented at every stage of the process. We have encountered some strange situations in our real estate transactions where Steve has proven to be highly resourceful and thorough in his counsel. We trust Steve in without question with our most valuable financial asset. He is also extremely thoughtful and considerate through out the typically stressful close process. Thank you Steve for all you have done for us." - Keith W
"I've worked with Steve on several purchases here in Austin and he has always exceeded my expectations. There are no shortage of Realtors in Austin but I would highly recommend Steve and Realty Pros. He'll go above and beyond and he even helped find an off market property well below current value. Give Steve a call, he's straight shooter and just a good guy." - Ryan H
"As a first time homebuyer, my wife and I were so fortunate to have Steve as our realtor. The process was initially quite daunting for us because it was territory we had never previously experienced. Steve was able to break down each step in an understandable way and he made us feel MUCH more comfortable. As we perused different builders and houses, his knowledge and perspective really allowed us to make informed decisions and he was always keeping our best interest in mind. He was always available for our questions regardless of the time and/or day and did most of the communicating with the seller, builder and title company for us. We definitely feel like we have perfectly blended quality, size and location all within our allotted budget and with all of our "must-haves." We will undoubtedly work with him for all of our future purchases and highly recommend him to anybody seeking a personable yet extremely knowledgeable realtor. A++" - Michael O
"My husband and I chose Steve Johnson to represent us in the sale of our home when we decided to list our Lakeway home (103 Mango Court). We could not have been more pleased with our decision to work with Mr. Johnson. Steve is the ultimate professional – highly experienced in his field, incredibly knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market and very trustworthy. He met with us in late October, knowing our deadline to sell our home and move was in mid-December. He thoughtfully and accurately assessed the condition of our home, suggested intelligent repair recommendations that ended up allowing us to sell our home for an added twenty-five thousand dollars! With Steve’s tenacity and diligence, he secured the perfect buyer and skillfully negotiated the smooth sale of our home in less than two months’ time. While Steve is friendly and easy to work with, he is also a man of integrity and delivers on what he says. We cannot praise his superior skills as an Austin real estate agent enough!" - Leigh A
Steve’s path in real estate has continued to accelerate since starting in the Austin, Texas market in 2005. From real estate agent to sales manager, top producer, and licensed broker, he has achieved great success while helping countless clients reach their personal real estate goals.
In 2009, Steve founded his own thriving boutique brokerage and property management firm. He and his wife/partner Jill Johnson later decided to make the move to Compass, to leverage their deep connections in the Austin area, capitalize on incomparable resources, and raise the bar on providing superior service in the community they love, live in, and serve.
Having sold everything from small condos to large multiunit complexes, Steve is an experienced Austin market expert as well as a master at marketing, negotiations, and investment analysis. Most vital is his ability to listen and speak to a client’s unique needs. With a background in selling both apartment buildings and luxury real estate, he can see things from a financial perspective, yet understands the emotional side of buying or selling a home.
Steve transitioned to real estate after an illustrious career in the world of film and television in California, working with some of the most talented advertising agencies, directors, photographers, and artists. He moved to Austin in 2005 with his family in tow, and focused on the campus market when getting his feet wet in real estate. Steve has since acquired impressive knowledge of all neighborhoods and facets of the industry, building solid relationships along the way. He understands that no two people, homes or investments are the same, and gives each transaction the attention and thoughtful approach it deserves.
Married to Jill for 17 years and blessed with three awesome children, Steve resides in Lakeway (Lake Travis) where he specializes. The entire family is active in their community, from Austin Ridge Bible Church to Lake Travis Youth Association. Steve loves living on the green belt where he enjoys jogging and mountain biking, and is an active member of The Hills of Lakeway Golf and Tennis Club.
