To keep it as short and to the point as possible, if you're looking for a Realtor who will go above and beyond to find your perfect home while being most respectful of your budget, you must look towards Stephen.
As first time home buyers, my fiance and I were more than pleased with how easy Stephen made the process. From the beginning he answered our very many questions about buying a house—the offer, the inspection, the contingencies, the works—all the while making it much more clear than any book we had read. Apart from his professional expertise, his personal knowledge of the area we were focused on proved beyond impressive and incredibly helpful.
Even when it seemed like we were leading Stephen on a wild goose chase, his willingness to show us any and all properties that were of interest was nonstop. He never pressured us into going above our budget, even though at times it seemed helpless competing against offers well above asking price. Ultimately, it was Stephen's efforts that put our feet in the door and negotiated an accepted offer within our budget, all before the open house.
We ended up in the home of our dreams with all of our must-haves and some, all thanks to Stephen.
