Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Cedarhurst, Richmond, VA.
My dream house came true and it was only possible due to the patience, diligence, knowledge, trustworthiness, prudence, and professionalism of Stephen Carroll. He handled everything with absolute skill and grace. He knew how to quell my anxiety.He was able to walk into every house we looked at and dissect its issues and advantages spot-on! I was simply amazed by his construction/mechanical knowledge base. He did not pressure me WHATSOEVER....ON THE CONTRARY! He did not hesitate to pick up on a draft coming through a hairline crack in a window frame OR a heating/AC unit in need of complete replacement. And in the end, I felt like a celebrity being taken care of by my agent. I didn't have to worry about the ins-and-outs/ups-and-downs of home ownership....he did it for me. Stephen Carroll looked out for me like a parent would...and I thank him a million times over for making my dreams come true.
Unbelievable!!! Stephen helped us find our home, stay within our budget, and win over in the bidding.. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and indispensable throughout the entire mortgage process, including securing the loan and afterwards. He is a great realtor and person. Stephen likes his job and it shows. He understand buyers and their needs. I would recommend him in a heart beat.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $400K in The Fan, Richmond, VA.
Having bought and sold multiple properties over the years, I have had lots of experience with realtors, and I have hit the whole spectrum, from wanting to pull my hair out before my contract ran out, to great satisfaction! Stephen Carroll is definitely top end--possibly the very best realtor with whom I have ever worked. I chose him by looking online and in the newspaper for a company that listed a lot of properties in my zone. Then I perused their websites, searching for someone with experience and a good record in selling commercial properties, as I was selling a triplex. From the moment I first contacted Stephen, his professionalism, knowledge and enthusiasm for his work was apparent. The really good thing about Stephen is that this continued throughout the life of the transaction, and I was never once disappointed in his performance. A couple of times, tricky contractual situations arose, and Stephen’s knowledge of real estate law and attention to detail proved invaluable. I was amazed at how many potential buyers he brought for showings, and within one month I had a lucrative contract! I feel I ought to present something less than positive, to give balance to this review, yet I honestly can think of nothing bad to say about Stephen Carroll!
