Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $850K in Agoura Hills, CA.
We used Steve to sell our house and also locate our next home. We wanted to stay in the same general area, but wanted a home a little smaller with less land, and in a gated community. Steve listened to our needs and not only found a home that exactly fit our wish list while at the same negotiated a deal on the sale of our existing home that allowed for a smooth transition. He is open and honest with his thoughts and strategies and offers more than competitive commission rates. He is reachable at all times to answer questions and resolve problems, he kept us up to date on the closing processes, he is a true professional and we highly recommend him and if we decide to move again, Steve will be the first agent we would contact. Excellent experience.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Oak Park, CA.
Steve Young is the best Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with , I have been involved in three prior house sales . Steve priced my house right for the current market , Steve listed my house on Monday and It was sold on Friday the same week . I am so impressed with Steve Young 's network , marketing , and expertise in Real Estate , I would highly recommend Steve as your agent , and start packing when you do.
Some may retain Steve Young as a broker, because of the favorable commission rates he offers. However, once you begin to really work with Steve, you realize you're getting so much more from him than you ever thought possible. First and foremost, Steve makes the process of purchasing or selling a home less stressful than it needs to be. He does this by being proactive with the client, understanding their needs and trying to fulfill their expectations before they are even requested of him. He is also not a "one trick pony". In other words, he doesn't get you to sign on the dotted line and then run off into the sunset without guiding you through whatever concerns you may have. He's there from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend Steve Young for his expertise, as well as the friendship that he imparts to each of his clients.

Steve Young is an excellent realtor and extremely knowledgeable of residential real estate in the Conejo Valley. I have used Steve recently and also over 25 years ago. I continue to use him because of hard work and connections in the industry. He has successfully guided me not only on pricing but timing of when to buy and sell. One other point certainly worth mentioning is that he has the fairest rates of anyone I've ever known in the business. I look forward to using him again in the future.

There is so many realtors to choose from and we made the right choice. Steve kept us focused on our search, assisted us with the tremendous amount of paperwork, and always reassured us things would be timed perfectly. If I were a realtor, I would want to be just like him.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Thousand Oaks, CA.
Steve was paramount in my purchase of a condo in Thousand Oaks. He was extremely responsive, helpful and acted masterfully between myself and the previous owner. The condo is located in a minimum age community and I was missing the minimum requirement by 6 months. He discussed the issue with the condo manager and found an acceptable solution to everyone happiness.
Impressive to me was the fact that Steve maintained contacts with me even after escrow closure to ensure everything was perfect.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Valencia, CA.
I have used agents in the past, but my three most recent transactions were handled by Steve Young. There is no substitute for his experience and knowledge. He always makes sure that nothing is overlooked. The last listing he handled for me was a rental home. Not only did he negotiate a great price, he dealt with the tenant in the most masterfully diplomatic and helpful way, making all parties involved happy from beginning to end. From Steve I got the best service, complete peace of mind and on top of everything paid a lower commission than with other agents. I would never use anyone else in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Encino, Encino, CA.
Steve Young has sold several homes for me. He has handled these sales in a very professional manner and I was very happy with his performance in these transactions. He was always available and was very detail oriented. He answered any and all questions I had regarding the sale
Over the past 20+ years Steve Young has listed and sold numerous properties for me. Last year he sold my home for considerably more than I was expecting. The escrow could not have gone more smoothly.
Steve's negotiating skills, depth of knowledge, attention to detail, sound advice, thoroughness, responsiveness, clarity of communication and honesty are without equal. He also has an exceptional ability to bring level-headed calm to the negotiating process.
Steve is a consummate professional of the highest integrity. I recommend him with unqualified enthusiasm.
