A real estate agent for 30+ years, as well as the owner & broker of Sunset Realty for 25 years, Steve still gets the same satisfaction and enjoyment from helping his clients get great results whether selling or buying. Steve not only helps his clients with their real estate needs, he is a very active real estate investor. His vast experience and knowledge in home renovations, foreclosures, and experience as a landlord benefit his clients and agents as well. Those skills give Steve a sharp eye in pointing out potential problems when showing properties to his buyers, so that they can make better decisions.

Conversely, when a seller needs help with preparing their home to sell, Steve offers cost effective tips for showing including staging and freshening up items that can make a big difference to the seller's bottom-line results.

Much of Steve's success comes from his enjoyment of the real estate business which motivates him to strive to constantly improve and learn to stay on the cutting edge of the local market and industry changes. As a very young new agent, Steve won many sales awards with the largest real estate firm in Minnesota before starting his own Company. The best award was when the local community named Sunset Realty as the best Real Estate Company in a Newspaper survey.

Building strong relationships with his clients and his clients' satisfaction has resulted in a strong referral business, a huge part of Steve's business. Surrounding himself with a great support system and taking pride in having an excellent reputation within the real estate industry are keys to his long time success in his business.

His passions besides real estate are fishing and boating at the family cabin, taking trips, reading, listening to music, and of course watching his favorite sports with his family and friends! Whether you are interested in selling your home, learning more about real estate investment, or buying your dream home, Steve takes great pride in his up to date knowledge of the Twin Cities Metro Area market. It's a great area to live and work in.

Team reviews

Steve was always available to help us find homes even though we were on the other side of the metro. He did a great job helping us find our home. He also made us aware up front of any potential resale issues (our home did not have a basement).

Sold a home in 2009.

I have worked with Steve for about 15 yrs. During that time my partner and I were doing rehabbing and buying Hud homes. Steve helped us through several buildings in getting them ready for resale and helping us find other properties. Steve is especially knowledgeable in his area. Have enjoyed doing business with him and will continue to do so.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Scandia, MN.

I'm super happy with the help Steve gave us in finding a home. He showed us many places on a Saturday. This helped us decide just what we wanted, since we were so undecided at first. He was available to quickly show us a home that had been reduced in price, so we could close a deal on a great place. Steve is very experienced and knowledgeable in real estate and was a pleasure to work with...easy going, fun, and friendly. I highly recommend him.  More Less
