Hi there,

Thanks for checking out my profile.

I know there are many agents to choose from but where i excel is in my excellence in working with First Time Buyers (and previous home-owners). I spend as much time as each client wishes to discuss the Real Estate purchasing process. One of the unique things i offer is to review a previously closed Escrow so the Buyer is comfortable with the process and has seen what the documents look like ahead of time so the they have a better idea of what is going to happen next in the transaction. I do my best to educate and protect my Buyers every step of the way so the whole experience is as stress-free as possible.

When searching or looking for homes, we will see as many places as necessary, NOT just 3 homes, like on HGTV shows.

I put out a weekly email newsletter for all my clients, which includes information on the current interest rates, articles about the current market and also the advanced list of Open Houses so you can track the market or plan your weekend.

Lastly, I am a member of the Professional Standards and Ethics Committee for the Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles Board of Realtors.   I have many, many happy clients and would be happy to supply referrals to vet my work ethic.

Thank you.

Ratings & Reviews

Steve is a fantastic realtor. Even though I knew he had multiple clients, I felt as if I was the only one, as he returned every call and every email promptly in the two months we worked together. Within those two months, we listed my home, sold it, purchased a new home, and closed on both. I had no idea everything would happen so quickly and smoothly. Steve is also a very fair realtor. He is always has your best interest in mind when making suggestions, as if he were providing a service that he would expect for himself. We were very happy with our experience with Steve and would recommend him for anyone looking to purchase or sell their home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $600K in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, CA.

Steven Rood is the best agent I've ever worked with. He returns calls immediately and works hard for as long as it takes to find the right deal. He knows the market and the legalities of home buying intimately and is a great coach during negotiations, without being heavy-handed. So many agents are just chasing quick commissions; Steven focuses on what's best for clients.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $625K in Leimert Park, Los Angeles, CA.

We, my wife and I, are first time home buyers and Steve diligently and thoroughly walked us through every step of the process - he's fantastic!!

Besides being knowledgeable, gracious, responsive and generous with his time (meeting with us late at night to review disclosures and docs, responding early in the morning to texts that were sent even earlier in the morning) - he put us first and always made us feel as though we were his highest priority, which is an amazing way to feel as a home buyer.

To be specific, another real estate agent was pressuring us to look at two different homes within a day and make a quick offer to avoid missing out, as the homes were about to be snatched up fast - so much so, that they wanted to show us the two homes at night, which was the only time in the following 24 hours that we had available.

Well, as luck would have it, we inquired about a property on Zillow and Steve was among several agents that reached out in response.

The difference was, Steve was very prompt - and better than that, he said looking at a house at night was a mistake, since the evening can hide concerns or issues that might only be visible or apparent during the day. I look back now and realize what a rookie mistake we were about to make!!

But, I loved that Steve's concern was more focused on finding us the right home than hurriedly showing us something late at night, so we could plunk down an offer and get embroiled in what ultimately might have been a disaster!

As a result of that initial conversation, Steve called me the next day, just to check in and touch base, and we talked for half an hour about what I do for a living, what my wife does for a living, where we work, to really assess what areas might be the best for us to consider. Steve even suggested some areas we didn't know that well and when I hedged, he offered to tour the areas with us, to show us the kind of neighborhood and community he thought we might be interested in. This personal level of detail, of finding a home that fit our needs, was what sold me on Steve!

And that's what's great about Steve - he looked all over the city for us - he sends a weekly newsletter with current home buying information, such as new interest rate info - and never once did he send us a potential listing that failed to match our evolving criteria for the kind of home we were deciding to buy.

So in the end, we found a great house in Leimert Park and, as my wife said a few weeks ago, it's a dream come true!!

I know there are a lot of Real Estate Agents out there, but Steve works his tail off and I can't imagine getting the kind of service, guidance and insight from anyone else that we got from Steve!

If you're looking to buy a home, I highly, highly recommend you use Steve Rood - he's the BEST!
