I have been floating around the America’s most desirable metropolises for the last decade looking for a place to call home. So when I fell in love with music city and decided to settle, I didn’t take the decision lightly. My father, who spent 20 years as one of the top real estate agents for the little corner in New England from which I hail, took it even more seriously. He set out on a search without my knowledge looking an agent worthy of family. After calling nearly half a dozen of the top rated agents on these sites and conversing with them he chose Steven. I can’t tell you happy I am that he did. I saw the same quality in him that drove my father to success. His tenacity and dedication can only come from a man who truly enjoys his professional duties. This isn’t just a living for Steven it is a calling. I told him up front that I lacked a stomach for high pressure sales and as comfortable waiting for the perfect house. One year later I found it. Did I mention he is very patient? Lol. In that time Nashville’s Market has shifted and changed at least half a dozen times. I have a tendency of liking a neighborhood about 3 months before it takes off, as well as a shopping list that require waiting a couple months for the right combination to come up. Steven maintained his pose and kept me up to date with all economic shifts. His knowledge of how to work VA deals is the only reason I closed on my home; which is far bigger, nicer, and a much better neighborhood than I expected when I started the search. Because he’s available at least 16 hours a day, polite, patient, professional and driven I felt compelled for their sake to give his card to 2 close friends looking to purchase homes in the near future. Give him a call, give him a chance, I promise you will NOT be disappointed.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Nashville, TN.

I was purchasing a condo from 3 hours away. Steven made the communication as smooth as possible between me and the seller. He assisted in recommendations for local repairs, water, electric and even an appraiser. He was very diligent and accommodating to our three week purchasing and moving time frame. In the Nashville market you have to work quickly and he did just that for us! He was awesome to work with and highly recommend him and would work with him again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Nashville, TN.

Steve is knowledgeable, down to earth and a great guy to work with; he is trustworthy, hardworking and professional. He is also extremely responsive. He called me within 5 minutes of showing interest on Zillow, which was convincing enough for me! He even responded immediately to late night text messages and emails. This responsiveness was essential for our out-of-state home buying experience. He even made himself available on a holiday weekend to accommodate our schedules. Realtors can sometimes seem like "used car salesmen," but I felt Steve was always on our side and looking out for our best interests. He offered to be present on our behalf for the initial home inspection and walked us through every step of the buying/closing process for a new build. I couldn't have been happier with our choice for a realtor! I absolutely recommend him!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Goodlettsville, TN.

Steven did an excellent job! I was a first time home buyer and had no idea how the process worked. I called Steven on a Sunday morning expecting to leave a voice mail and hearing back from him on the following Monday. Instead, he answered his phone and spent the next 40 minutes answering all my questions. He was always quick to return a call when he could not answer. He made the first time home buying experience an easy one. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Hermitage, Nashville, TN 37138

I contacted this agent and he responded back quickly. For his knowledge of the condo I had questions about he knew nothing. He was very rude with the more questions I asked the more he was rude. I would not call or recommend him.

It is unfortunate that I fell short of assisting this Buyer during our initial conversation. Although I have considerable general knowledge of many parts of Nashville & the surrounding areas, I will not always be able to answer questions immediately without further research. In this case, it appears as though my communication of such was deemed less than acceptable. I strive to give the best customer service that I am able to the folks who contact me & I am grateful for all those who continue to validate my efforts through the reviews they post.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Hendersonville, TN.

Sine our fist e-mail and phone conversation Steve was so kind,informative and honest. We were in the Boston are trying to buy a house in the Nashville area. He always was prompt in answering all our questions. With our first face to face interaction ,he was personable and honest. We continued our communication via e-mails and phone conversation. On our next visit to Nashville he set up a multitude of houses to go to. That day ended in success. He was our best advocate and we could not have done it without him. He was by our side til our closing on July 16th! I have no hesitation to recommend Steve to everyone!

Showed home in 2015 in Shackle Island, Hendersonville, TN 37075.

Steven made the time we spent looking at houses a wonderful experience. Being new to the area we relied on his expertise when it came to the different styles of houses he showed us and his knowledge of the surrounding areas was very helpful in making a decision. Also the energy he brought to the experience was addictive. We feel very fortunate to have found Steven and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who asked.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Hendersonville, TN.

Steven was a great realtor for a first time home buyer. My wife and I were apprehensive about the whole buying process initially but after talking with Steven he assisted in providing us peace of mind. Steven coordinated with me a crossed two states to ensure our home buying process went smoothly. Steven will go above and beyond to provide quality service. Steven was able to assist my wife and I in obtaining the home we really wanted in the fast paced Nashville area market. Steven is not afraid to get his hands dirty either. He literally helped me dig through mud to turn the water onto my house. I would recommend Steven to anyone that is in the pursuit of purchasing a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in La Vergne, TN.

Steven goes above and beyond for his clients. We recently used him to sell our home and it sold within days at full price. Selling a home is stressful enough but with Steven responding so fast and answering all my questions it made everything go really well. He always calls you back and gets the info you need and I am using him to buy my next home and will recommend him to anyone I know. Thoroughly impressed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Woodland Point, Nashville, TN.

Steven did a great job! He knows Nashville well and really knows the market. Outstanding service, we were able to quickly negotiate a great contract. He was also able to provide me guidance for the mortgage and inspection, both of which I couldn't have been happier with. Steven was always readily available if I needed anything. Everything went very smooth and I could not be happier with the house.
