Ratings & Reviews

Steve Torres assisted my wife and I in our search for a home in North San Diego County last November. We told Steve exactly what we were looking for in a home. With his experience and knowledge of the area, Steve was able to select properties that met our criteria so as not to waste our time. Once we decided on a home, Steve assisted us in preparing the initial offer and several counter offers as we negotiated the final deal. Steve is very knowledgeable and was responsive to our requests through the process. I would recommend his services to anyone either looking to purchase or wanting to sell a home. Robert Foss

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Oceanside, CA.

We had the pleasure of working with Steven on the purchase of our new home. Steven is a true professional and most importantly has a wealth of knowledge about the Oceanside area. He was able to give suggestions about neighborhoods, current market trends, and was able to answer all our questions about the home buying process in California. He is extremely flexible and willing to meet you on your time. He returns your calls quickly and goes above and beyond to be there to help you no matter what. His advice was invaluable and after we talked, he always made us feel better about whatever decision we were about to make. The home we wanted to purchase had a few hurdles to overcome, but with Steven's help it was much less stressful than expected and the deal was closed on time. Steven is exactly what we were looking for in a real estate agent: very approachable, HONEST, and knowledjust an all around great guy. I highly recommend Steven to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Oceanside, CA.

Steven represented us (the seller) on the sale of our father's house. His knowledge and expertise of the area led to listing it at the correct price and finding the right buyer quickly. He was professional, knowledgeable and very thorough in all aspects of the transaction. I had a lot of questions throughout the process and he was always available to answer them and assist in any way. This was a "long distance" transaction and I can't thank him enough for all his hard work. If I were buying or selling in the area in the future, I would definitely work with Steven again!!!

Bought a home in 2012 in La Mesa, CA 91942.

One of Steven's great assets is his patience and his resolve to find that elusive "perfect" house for his clients. We began using Steven since our initial plan was to reside in North County; but after a few months we switched gears and began looking in the city of San Diego (we ended up in La Mesa). To make matters more difficult, the vast majority of our house hunting was done from out of town using real estate web sites to find and qualify homes. Some weeks we had Steven running all over the place! And even though I'm sure we tested his patience at times, he never batted an eye. As ones who were new to the market, Steven was also a valuable resource on all sorts of real estate and neighborhood information. Steven comes highly recommended from us!

Bought a home in 2014 in Rancho Calevero Mobile Home Park, Oceanside, CA 92056.

Buying a home today is a very stressful experience. It is stressful mostly because of the unnecessary and unrealistic demands and requests made by sellers, loan agents, selling agents, everyone involved with selling a home. I have bought many houses over the years with none as bad as this one. So, to buy a house today you need an agent that can help you weed through all of the confusion and get the job done. For me, Steven was able to help me get over all the hurdles and get the job done.

Thus, I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Vista, CA.

I am extremely happy with the experience Steven made buying a home for myself and my wife. I had originally contacted Steven on a Friday morning to see his earliest availability and he catered to MY schedule every single time. He was available that same day and at the time I was free.

Due to my wifes schedule we needed to meet on a weekend at one point and Steven was more than happy to accomodate us and walk us through the home. Steven is a very punctual individual and not once was I ever waiting on him. Customer service to me goes beyond a smile and a hand shake, Steven does an excellent job and goes above and beyond what most agents would do and with my wife and I we always felt like he put us first.

When all was said and done we closed with a 30 day escrow and absolutely zero issues. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate Steven a 10, which encompasses his knowledge, sincerity, and customer service. I would highly recommend using Steven when purchasing a home and will definitely be using him again if The occasion should ever arise.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Vista, CA.

When we decided to begin a search for a starter home/condominium for our daughter, the posted referrals on local real estate agents made Steven Torres of Elite Premier Properties an obvious stand out. From our first meeting, and throughout our search together, Steven demonstrated a care for our housing needs and a parent's mutual concern for our daughter's comfort and safety.

We were able to identify an ideal refurbished unit that met our needs fairly quickly, which allowed Steven to go to work implementing a short escrow (our request), and begin driving the usual flood of paperwork and signatures along quickly and efficiently.

Working with Steven is like having a favorite (young) uncle in the real estate business. His command of the process and friendly approach to what can sometimes be a draining process was a breath of fresh air for us, not having been in the house-hunting business for many, many years. Steven's motto is “if you like my work. referring me to your friends is the best compliment you can give me”. We heartily recommend the services of Steven Torres to you as you start your search for a new home.

Bought a home in 2013.

Steve helped us get a short sale in Carlsbad. Steve knew exactly what to do and was able to get us a response from the bank in under a month. Steve was always available for any of our (multiple) questions and concerns. We were able to close on the short sale in just about 2 months. If you are looking to sell or buy in Carlsbad I would completely trust Steve with the deal.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Oceanside, CA.

Steven was recommended to me by a friend who had just completed a short-sale of her home with him. Since we were also interested in doing a short sale, we contacted him. He was extremely knowledgeable about short sales, and working with Bank of America, in particular. He was very effective in finding potential buyers and shepherded us through the short sale process with the banks as fast as was humanly possible. He was always responsive to my calls, texts and emails and was usually able find answers for me same-day.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Oceanside, CA.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Steve! He was reliable, always avaliable, and very accommodating to our very busy schedule. We just closed on our new home, and it was in a very competitive market. Just when we were about to give up hope Steve found us the PERFECT home! Not only was the home below budget, but it had more features then we were even expecting to get. If you are looking for a prefessional, responsive, and reliable real estate agent that cares about the needs/ expectations of his clients, then Steve is the real estate agent for you! I would highly reccommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
