I am a full time Realtor servicing the St. Louis Metro East in Illinois. I am with Strano & Associates serving O'Fallon, Scott Air Force Base, Belleville, Shiloh, Swansea, Fairview Heights, Troy, Collinsville, Mascoutah and the Greater Metro East Area. .

At Strano & Associates Real Estate we have been helping people buy and sell homes for over 25 years.  Strano first opened in 1981 later affiliated with Better Homes and Garden.  Then in 2000 the GMAC Real Estate network welcomed Strano to be its exclusive representative.  In 2008 Dede Strano, the original owner, decided to make Strano & Associates Real Estate an independent real estate company.  We continue to provide our clients exceptional service.
 
As a professional Realtor, I have built a reputation throughout the community as a Realtor to count on for results with a personal touch.  I believe real estate is a business that requires clear communication.  I will tell you the truth even when it may not be what you want to hear. For example, staging your home is critical to one's success since first impressions are often the most lasting.  Yet surprisingly, staging is often not properly addressed by some agents.  Realize buying and selling a home is not only a big financial commitment, but also an emotional one.  It's critical that the real estate professional you choose is both skilled and a good fit with your personality.  If you appreciate straight talk and honest communication chances are we will get along great.
 
I believe in the Golden Rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
 
My Core Values
• Live by the "Get by Giving" philosophy.
• Make my client's #1 goal, my #1 goal.
• Live up to my standards despite temptations to lower them.
• Be willing to work for a common good.
• Do what I say I am going to do, sometimes more, just never less.
 
I am a Relocation Specialist helping both military and non-military families. I am a trained and certified Cartus Mobility Affinity Specialist CMAS, (formerly Cendant Mobility) Movers Advantage/USAA "A Team".  My systematic approach to relocation which includes my Buyer's Profile System and Buyer's Report Card eliminates a lot of the hassle and heartache involved in relocating.  Request Steve Sexauer be your assigned agent when talking to your relocation benefits coordinator.
 
I am experienced in both buying and selling residential properties as well as investment properties.  I help clients make educated decisions so they can realize their real estate dreams.  You will like my customer service, marketing, staging, negotiations, market knowledge and communication style.  It's my goal to continue to improve and educate myself in these important areas.
 
I have been married since 1994 and have a young daughter and son.  As a family man my personal time is spent with playtime, little league sports, Six Flags, going to the park etc.  We are members of the First Baptist Church of O'Fallon.  I graduated from William Jewel College where I played small college football in the glory days.  Now I am just a fan and enjoy the St. Louis Rams, St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues.  I also spend time volunteering because I am a firm believer in giving back to the community in which I live and work.

Bought a home in 2014.

Steve was our realtor for a new build in Belleville Illinois. My family and I met with Steve for two weeks before heading back overseas during the entire build. Steve was truly a lifesaver during this entire process. Some people have asked whether or not it is worth it having a realtor for a newly constructed home, and I would say yes if the realtor is in any way as good as Steve was for our family. We needed many mobility modifications for our home and Steve was our eyes and ears while we were overseas. He worked out a flooring allowance which allowed us to have the proper flooring we needed throughout the entire home. He was present during our final walk through and caught numerous small and a few large modifications that were needed. By the time we came to the States for closing and the final walk through, Steve made sure the builder corrected nearly everything and made them well aware of anything that needed corrections ( which were minor at that point). The lender we were going to use was extremely flaky, so Steve recommended a few lenders. We went with Ryan Luechtefeld, who was one of Steve's recommendations. Ryan was awesome as well and responded within minutes every time we had a question. Steve frequently updated us with photos of our home's construction, which my wife truly appreciated. He was also present during our closing and truly guided us through the entire process of buying a home for the first time. Steve went from realtor to family friend and someone we plan to keep in touch with throughout the future. I'd highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a realtor in the area. My entire family lives in the Shiloh, Belleville, and O'Fallon area and have purchased multiple homes. When I tell them of how above and beyond Steve went, they were all extremely impressed as they hadn't had this sort of luck with a realtor in all their years in the area.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in O Fallon, IL.

We came into the "home buying world" with little to no knowledge as to what we were doing. We met Steve in the process of randomly looking at houses and realized that we needed an agent to represent us. We chose Steve because he was genuine and clear with advice. Throughout the searching and buying process, Steve was extremely thorough with his end of things. We kept in constant contact with us, listened to what we wanted, and helped us know what the next step would be every step of the way. We put an offer in on a house that was over-priced. Steve caught the fact that it was over-priced and advised us not to go over a certain price point. This was very impressive because other agents would have pushed for more money. We found a different house a couple of weeks later, and were able to move on it quickly because Steve was willing to write the offer at his office the same night we saw the house.Steve is a very likable and trustworthy, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to help us with our first home purchase.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Fairview Heights, IL.

I’ll start off by mentioning that Steve helped me buy the house I just sold when I moved to the St Louis area; I was so impressed with his performance helping me buy the house that I didn’t even consider going to another realtor when it came time to sell the house.

Steve did a great job making sure everything was taken care of from start to finish. He brings a deep reservoir of knowledge, experience and professionalism to his trade. He was prompt about keeping me informed as developments unfolded and provided solid advice on how to proceed through negotiations while still giving me room to make my own decisions.

I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the St Louis area. Together, Steve and I successfully over came several unique obstacles in selling my house faster and for more money than I expected.
