Ratings & Reviews

Steve knows the Seattle area and responded immediately to our home buying needs. He was careful to listen to us and to understand our personal requirements for a new home. I liked his direct and business approach; we did not waste time looking at homes that did not meet our needs. We looked at over 30 homes in a 48 hour period and Steve was constantly updating the home availability. We left Seattle after our house hunting trip satisfied and relieved to know that we buying the home that we wanted and one that was of the highest quality.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.125M in West Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.

To buy a house in Seattle at the moment is difficult enough due to stiff competition with other buyers. To find a dream home and purchase it within 3 weeks of arriving in Seattle is only possible with the help of a great buyers agent. Steve made the process of buying a home in a new city simple and enjoyable. He not only has an extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, but also knows how to negotiate to get his clients the best possible deal. He will make you feel like he is only working with you and is quick to respond to any questions or queries you may have, whether it be a weekday, weekend or after hours. Totally first class.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Grass Lawn, Redmond, WA.

Steve was the third real estate agent we worked with. After having two unpleasant experiences with other real estate agents, working with Steve was refreshing. He is extremely professional, always responsive (even in unconventional hours), and most importantly he knows how to get a house! He escorted us throughout the entire process, and gave us the feeling that things are always under control. For us, new time home buyers that made the difference. I highly recommend Steve to anyone, and will refer my friends to him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.9M in Sammamish, WA.

Steve went above and beyond for us! From the first few showings when he had drinks and snacks for the kids, to after we moved into our great home... he was responsive and positive.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Sammamish, WA.

Steve was excellent! His knowledge of both East coast and West coast markets cultures really came in handy in looking for and ultimately purchasing a home. We also really felt like his listen to what we wanted and help guide (not push) us to finding the right fit. I would recommend him in a heart beat!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Issaquah, WA.

Steve helped me buy my home when I moved into the Seattle area. I was new to the area and he was instrumental in helping navigate the neighborhoods. I felt he quickly understood what we were looking for and that the homes we saw were right on target. Over the years, I would occasionally call Steve and ask his advise on investments I should make to improve my home and what the market would support. He was always willing to help and proved very knowledgeable about the area. Several years later when I needed to sell the home, I went straight to Steve. He guided my family and I through the selling process like a pro! He knew exactly where to price the house and how to show it. Its a pleasure dealing with professionals such as Steve and I will always highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling the the Seattle area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Redmond, WA.

After working with another agent for months that did not understand us or the market, we contacted Steve to help us get things on track. After almost 5 months of little to no activity on the house with the prior agent, Steve helped us get the house re-listed and sold within 2 months of taking over as our realtor with a great offer and terrific buyer who really appreciated the house and the features it offered.

He knows the area, the market and how to best present your home to the right buyers. And while present you with all offers, he is great at guiding you through the numbers and issues that surround them, helping to protect you from those that are not really serious.

If I need a realtor in the future, I WILL call Steve first.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Finn Hill, Kirkland, WA.

Steve recently assisted me in a move from NYC to the Seattle area for a new job. the 5 stars I gave him in each category are even somewhat of an understatement, if there were 6 I would have given them to him. His local knowledge was superb, having been here a few months now, everything he described about the area I ended up in has been spot on. As far as the process, he was not only an expert but walked me through the whole thing (this was my first home purchase as well) and ensured that I understood every detail, was patient with my questions, and generally made me incredibly comfortable every step of the way. His responsiveness coudl not improve much as it was immediate - I would write long emails with tons of quesitons at 10PM at night expecting to hear back sometime the following morning and 20 minutes later I would get a thoughtful and detailed response with an offer to talk on the phone if needed, right then. Lastly, despite buying a new home where I have read negotiation is not as necessary, he still landed us extras from the builder that my wife and I are loving right now. While this may have been my first foray into the real estate market, Steve is the type of person that I would want working with me in any business area. There may be others just as good (though I doubt it) but it would be nearly impossible to beat him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $525K in North Bend, WA.

Steve was a pleasure to work with and he handled several things that were above the call of duty. He gave us good advice and helped quickly narrow down the options we had to the final choice. I would pick Steve again if given the choice.
