“Steve absolutely blew us away. We had no idea what to expect with the home buying process, and have heard horror stories for months about how hard it is to get your offer accepted on a home, and how far above asking people were going. The things we appreciated the most about Steve was that he wouldn't let our emotions run away from us, he was always looking at the numbers, looking at what offer made sense for the property, and what we could do to be competitive without throwing an excessive and unneeded amount of money at the sellers. He was always ready to tour homes with us, pointing out potential red flags we didn't even notice, and truly understood what we were looking for in a home and property. At no point did we feel stressed or uninformed about what was going on with the process, he anticipated in advance what we wanted to know before we even asked! We are astounded with what we purchased, a single family home, with over half an acre of land and a great view- better than we imagined we would find. Our home appreciated for 15k over what we bought it for- which is amazing considering how overpriced homes are right now. Thank you Steve for your determination in helping us find our home, we brag all the time about how smooth and fun the process was. We appreciate you!" - Chris & Lauren Turori

“We came into this as first time home buyers, had no idea what really to do or how to handle this whole thing. Steve was there calmly guiding us through the process, setting up and viewing the houses, getting us through escrow, and just answering any questions we had as we went. We did not feel pressured to accept a house we did not want to take and Steve was in fact more than willing to point out flaws in homes that we either didn't see or that would not work with what he saw we wanted. Overall, Steve is a friendly, positive and productive agent and we would be honored to work with him again." -Florian

★★★★★
“Steve and his team marketed our home expertly, garnering 10 offers in just 3 days - and nearly all above our asking price. Then, when we experienced flood damage during escrow, Steve guided us through the process with a steady hand, communicating with the buyers professionally and consistently and ensuring we made it to closing. We highly recommend Steve and his team." - Rich M

★★★★★
“Steve helped us buy our home in 2008 and sell the same home in 2018; both were absolutely wonderful experiences. Steve was there day and night to answer any questions and provide honest advice. Would highly recommend Steve and his team to anyone without hesitation” - Ellie S.

★★★★★
“Steve was really helpful with my selection and purchase processes, and I am very happy that I landed his property. Even after closing the deal, Steve helped me to clear some document issues that dragged on months after the purchase. I would see Steve and Brianna as knowledgeable and helpful professionals and would definitely recommend to other people.” - Ray W.

★★★★★
“Moving is a very emotional process, and you need a realtor that you can really trust. What impressed us about Steve was his professionalism, punctuality, honesty, and integrity - but most of all, that we could trust him to always have our best interests in mind. He never pushed us into a decision; he was an amazing listener and spent many, many evenings with us on the or over a cup of coffee just letting us vent. He helped us find a beautiful home and we sincerely recommend him to anyone looking the utmost in quality service. He's simply the best." - Cheryl S.
