Look no further than Steve! I am very comfortable buying and selling real estate but to have that extra professional help has been critical to my past transactions. Not only is he VERY knowledgeable but here is a Realtor that actually wants to help. Well done sir.

Steve Capen went out of his way and well beyond what one might expect of an estate agent. Steve was with me from the initial listing to the closing, and it wasn't always smooth. He negotiated terms with the buyer and each of two lenders, secured a lien discharge and coordinated the timing of all of these elements to come together for the closing. I could not have asked for better representation.

Steve was our short sale broker on an incredibly complicated transaction that involved a messy divorce, tax issues, and an uncooperative party. He deserves a gold medal for the work that he did to get us to the finish line that resolved the entire matter as quickly as possible. I highly recommend him for his competence, diligence, attention to detail, and ability to get everyone to the finish line. He's simply the best short sale realtor in Pinellas County.

My wife and I contacted Steve after searching for someone who specializes in short sales. Steve interviewed us, inspected our home, and quickly got us started on preparing to do the short sale. It was a somewhat long and baffling process that I am not sure my wife and I would have navigated without the help we received from Steve and his staff. Steve was always available to us to answer questions and provide advice on how to deal with the cascade of contradictory letters and information we received from the bank that owned our mortgage. Steve's efforts resulted in a full release from our mortgage by the bank. In short, he proved to be invaluable to us.

I had my townhouse on the market with another real estate agent for a few months, but there were no offers. I met with Steve Capen and explained my concerns and I was very impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. Within a week I had a contract on the house and I was relieved to finally sell it! Steve took care of everything and just told me when and where to show up for the closing. It was the easiest real estate transaction I have ever had.
If you need to sell your property, call Steve! I highly recommend his services.

Steve Capen is the best real estate agent we ever met! He is honest, experienced, professional and great to deal with, took all the stress and pressure out of selling our house.
Steve kept us well informed throughout the sale process.
He negotiated on our behalf with bank and buyer's agents. All the documents were completed within the necessary time frame.
Overall Steve saved us money as well as helping us manage a very stressful situation. We just wanted to let people know how easy it was working with Steve Capen!
It's the first time we met the agent that was working for us and not for himself only.
He is very highly recommended and we will definitely do business with Steve again.

Steve is very persistent, and exhausts every possible scenario until your home is sold. He also has a complete understanding of the market, including short sales and foreclosures. His negotiation skills with buyers and banks is top notch. I would highly recommend his expertise.
Briefly, Steve will represent you with the idea of "how can I best serve these folks" at the top of his agenda. He knows that it's not about the commission, but about establishing relationships. I highly recommend Steve. Dave Coke, Clearwater
