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.
10 stars! Steve is wonderful to work with! He patiently worked with my husband and I for over two years until we found the right home. We were very particular about the type of home and land we needed for our family. Steve was never pushy about buying any of the homes we saw and always gave us his honest opinion. We closed on our new home last month and we would gladly work with Steve again.
Steve Caldwell is top of the line. He is a professional, knowledgeable and highly skilled realtor. He is always calm, friendly and explanatory. He put a plan together and brought it to pass. Steve sold our home in less than six days! Actually, the first client to see our home, the day after the sale sign went up, purchased our home! We highly recommend Steve Caldwell. Whether you’re buying or selling, call Steve…he’ll get it done!
Two generations of my family have now found/purchased their homes in Roanoke through Steve Caldwell – my parents around 17 years ago, and now my husband and I this past September (just a few blocks away from my parents in Old Southwest)! Steve cares about relationships and understands that buying a home is a major decision influenced by the physical characteristics of the home and neighborhood and the Buyer’s emotions/intuition. He is respectful of the process and comes from a place of moral integrity.
We began working with Steve during the summer of 2016 to become familiar with the Roanoke market/neighborhoods in preparation for our future relocation to the area. Steve met with us over many weekends and consistently maintained contact with us. We knew we had Steve’s undivided attention and that he had our interests in mind from our first meeting to sitting together around the Closing table. Steve continues to support our transition to Roanoke by recommending contractors for various projects and services we are considering in our new home. Thank you!
Steve is wonderful to work with to sell your home. He is thorough and prompt with his help and evaluations. Steve communicates promptly and kept us up to date on any activity on our house and made sure we had access to comments made by realtors and potential buyers. He was there to help with closing. In addition to his business skills, Steve has a most pleasant personality making him a pleasure to work with. I recommend him completely and without any reservations.
Steve Caldwell helped my wife and I purchase the right home in Roanoke. We were moving from Tennessee and wanted to get into a home right away and not put our furniture in storage. Steve, reviewed our criteria and helped us come to the conclusion that we were preparing to settle on a home that only met part of our needs due to our desire not to move into an apartment. While living in the apartment Steve worked with us to find a home that met almost all of our criteria and we are very happy that we waited. Thank you Steve for listening to us and understanding that settling on the first home would have been a mistake. Happy customers Rob and Elizabeth Q.
We couldn’t have had a better experience working with Steve Caldwell. My wife and I needed to move from Boston to central Virginia for work in a three month time period, and from the beginning, Steve did a great job taking as much anxiety out of the home buying process as possible. We found Steve through a Yelp! review, and we are extremely happy we selected him. From the moment my wife spoke to him on the phone, he was ready to go. He asked targeted questions to help narrow down the options for our visit, and then he frequently followed up with listings and questions. Having Steve with us when we toured houses was invaluable. He was able to point out aspects of the house that would have been difficult to assess on our own, such as the quality of construction, the condition of appliances, and the general layout of the house. His advice and unique insight helped us make informed decisions. However, he also knew when to give my wife and I a bit of space to collect our thoughts and talk them through. After a handful of houses, he had a great sense of what we were looking for, and could even predict what houses we would like and not like before we saw them. Steve was also very helpful during the negotiation process. He gave us his thoughts on our offer, and then communicated our feelings to the buying agent. Whenever we received a counteroffer, he would talk through the options with us. After we successfully had an offer accepted, Steve was able to recommend people for inspections and a survey, contacted the people needed on our behalf, and went to oversee the home inspection as our representative (since we were back in Boston at that point). Even after we moved into our new home Steve continued to assist us. He frequently checked in to make sure that the remaining repairs were completed as specified in our contract. He even made phone calls himself when he felt that repairs were not being done quick enough or to his satisfaction. He also just checked in to see how we were settling in and offered general suggestions for restaurants and entertainment in the Roanoke area. We cannot recommend Steve highly enough. He was always available day and night, and is as honest and open as you can get. We hope you have as great an experience as we did!
