Steve provided very professional and friendly service throughout our home buying process. He provided valuable insight into the homes we looked at. He made sure we always knew what the next step was and provided us with all the information we would need. Other parties involved (lenders, lawyers, etc.) commented frequently on how reliable and on-top-of-the-game Steve is. He sent them required documentation without them having to hound him for it. Steve responds very quickly to emails and gets things done fast.
We are first-time home buyers, and during our months of searching, we were also managing having a husband who was working out of town and a wife with a very complicated pregnancy, so there were a lot of added stressors. We decided to go with Steve after meeting with several realtors because we were impressed by his high level of experience, great previous reviews, and intimate knowledge of the local real estate market—and he wasn’t afraid to dig in with us and our challenging situation! We are so glad we did. He viewed probably 25 homes with us without a single complaint or sign of impatience, pointing out good and bad things at each home (very often things that we would have overlooked on our own). He was quick to respond to our inquiries, paid attention to our specific interests, and tailored our searches based on them. When we finally found the home for us, Steve walked us through the loan and closing processes step by step. He advocated for us time and time again as we encountered issues beyond our control (a bidding war, home repairs that had not been completed by the sellers to Steve’s high standards, and the resultant down-to-the-wire closing). It was stressful, but we felt confident in Steve’s ability to navigate the thornier parts of home purchasing. He also repeatedly followed up with us even after our home was purchased to make sure we were settling in ok (and giving us great guidance and resources when we had questions, even after our purchase). In every manner possible, Steve has shown us he was invested in our happiness with our new home, far beyond our expectations. We are so impressed with him, not only as a realtor, but as a genuinely great person. Steve has definitely earned our full respect, trust, and appreciation. We’ve already asked him how he feels about being our realtor when we’re ready to sell this home (in another 30 years or so)!
Excellent! True professional with vast knowledge of his industry. Steve was very attentive to our needs and a pleasure to deal with.
We met Steve in 2014 when we moved to Roanoke from Tampa. I randomly chose a Realtor from the internet. I have said since that my choice was divine insider, because our relationship with Steve has been nothing but positive and productive. He helped us buy our house and then guided us in our recent sale. The house sold in two days and we got full price. Not saying it was all Steve in that kind of a sale, but he provided expert advice in the process. He is unflappable, thorough and I consider him a friend. He even helped us sell our pool table. What more do you want in a Realtor?
Steve is a great realtor. We read reviews before we hired Steve. Everyone was right. He did his research and came up with a value for our home. Has a professional stager/photographer to assist you before listing. Our photos were high quality and believe they helped sell our house. We are extremely satisfied with Steve and would highly recommend him if you are looking for an agent. If we were still in the area we would hire Steve again for any real estate needs we might have.
