Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in North Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.
Steve is great and he helped us find our first house! He was extremely knowledgeable about the different Seattle neighborhoods we looked at including potential issues with certain neighborhoods (like ones known to have rat problems) as well as being generally very knowledgeable about houses themselves. He helped us note potential house issues, things to avoid as well as suggestions on easy fixes versus other problems. He is very relaxed and isn't a high-pressure-sales kind of person; he wants you to find the right house for you, on your timeline, rather than just to make a sale. Steve was incredibly open and honest regarding potential conflicts of interest like when we were interested in the same house a client of his partner's was also interested in and he recommended another agent to work with in case we were serious about making a bid on the same house to avoid conflicts. We also really loved how he was part of the whole process from start to finish and wasn't afraid to help us out however he could. We were really happy to work with him.
Selling a home can be a crazy ride. I am so thankful that I had the best of the best. Steve Foss was just that the best of the best. He walked me through all the steps. I had the best experience and would do it again on the next round. Cheers to Steve Foss.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA.
Steve helped us with our most recent purchase. There were 19 competing bids in the first week of the listing and Steve succesfully negotiated the back and forth with the listing agent to put our offer in first position. He's a great agent!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $700K in Arbor Heights, Seattle, WA.
We were so lucky to be introduced to Steve. We were overwhelmed by the prospect of finding a new home in a new city. Steve was an awesome guide, as a native of the area, helping us explore many different neighborhoods and homes. Throughout our search he was diligent, responsive, and completely professional. And when we finally found the right house, he was very strategic in crafting an offer that would be the one the sellers accepted. It was a pleasure working with Steve and we will surely call on him again when we are ready to make another move.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Roxhill, Seattle, WA.
I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy a home. He is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and found me a great property that suits both what I needed in a home (safe location, close to work, within my budget) and what I wanted (move-in ready, near amenities, in Seattle).
As a first-time home buyer, I knew I was working with someone who wanted me to find the best property for me, not just make a quick sale. Not only did he scope out multiple locations to tour, he helped me through the somewhat overwhelming process of escrow, finding a mortgage lender, home inspection, price negotiations, and everything else associated with purchasing a home. I cannot thank Steve enough for everything he did to help me, and I would happily recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a property.
Steve was a great champion for multiple sales and purchases of homes. Steve is always responsive, professional, and knowledgable about the market trends and the region's inventory. I would highly recommend Steve to any one of my friends, colleagues or family members!
Sold a Condo home in 2012 in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA.
I've worked with Steve and his reality partner, Shane Ristine, for about 8 years now. I've bought 2 condos and am in the process of selling one with them. They are professional, knowledgeable, patient and very responsive. I've been extremely impressed by their work and I've recommended them to my family members and many friends.
Steve worked effortlessly with my partner and I to sell our house. Months prior to the sale he helped us strategize what upgrades and renovations might bring the most value to the sale of our house. He successfully marketed our house with open houses, gorgeous printed materials, and a strong web presence. I highly recommend Steve as a great real estate agent and look forward to working with him again.
