Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Richmond, CA.

Stephen Beard was our realtor when we bought our first home in December 2014. The property was a short sale and it took 4 1/2 months from when we submitted our offer until we closed, so we got to know Stephen really well. Throughout this process, we experienced many challenges and roadblocks given all of the parties and lenders involved, but Stephen was incredibly patient, honest, and trustworthy, and helped guide us every step of the way. As first time homebuyers, we had tons of questions and Stephen was diligent about answering our questions and always keeping our best interests in mind. And even after escrow closed, Stephen was available to give us referrals for contractors and to help us wrap up the process. It was a pleasure working with Stephen to buy our first home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in San Leandro, CA.

Stephen helped me buy my house, but months before I was ready to do that he spent hours educating me on the process and my options. He is energetic, positive, and responsive.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Union City, CA.

He worked with us to find a house that would meet a difficult combination of factors for our son's special needs. He was very helpful throughout the process, patient with our requirements and hesitations, and informative about the real estate steps. We highly recommend him.

Stephen is a great Real Estate Agent! He did a great job finding a "home" for us! Stephen was very patient with my wife and me.... Showing us multiple listings, setting up home visits, escorting us to home visits, and being there for us every step of the way! Kudos to Stephen on a job well done!

Bought a home in 2010.

It was a pleasure working with Stephen. As a first-time home owner, he was especially good at explaining the process and insuring all the details were addressed, from finding a good home all the way to closing and moving in.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Antioch, CA.

We came across Stephen after having looked for months. Naturally, we have previous buyer agent experience, even though we came to Stephen as first time home buyers. After meeting Stephen and seeing his professionalism, drive, and approachability, we did not hesitate to partner with him. After meeting him, we looked for around 1 month and found our dream home. Throughout the process one of the things we really thought was excellent was his response rate. At a time when the market had slim pickings and was competitive, every second counted. Not only was Stephen always quick to answer calls and e-mails, but he was always up for meeting in person. Another thing that stood out to us about Stephen was the way he explained absolutely every part of the process and paperwork to us. Being first-time home buyers--that was gold. He really has a way of explaining complex matters in a way that everyone can understand. Stephen was extremely organized, and this is coming from a person whom others call a "clean freak." His knowledge of the market was apparent, and he always had great advice. He never pressured us into anything, and gave us all options that we had available. Lastly, he has connects in the bay area and can recommend people for different aspects of the entire process, such as: home inspection companies, loan agents, etc... He was great at following up with our loan agent and had immense knowledge on the various moving parts of our funding. He did not scare and run away when we told him we were looking into funding aid in order to buy a bigger home. Stephen is eons above the rest in our opinion, and would undoubtedly recommend him to anyone who needs a buyer's agent. His honesty, confidence, and presence is very reassuring throughout the whole process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Richmond, CA.

I am in a wheelchair, and that was one of the basic drivers of my house-hunting. Stephen knows what that means. He can look at a place and have a solid idea of whether or not I can live in a space, and how that space might have to be adapted to me. It took a year of searching, but I love my house. Roomy and charming. I am grateful to Stephen's patience and expertise.
