Steve is a rock star. We relocated to Virginia from California last summer, and initially moved into a rental to ease the logistics of an already-complicated move. Our first contact with him was well over a year before we were actually ready to buy. Once we were ready, he worked tirelessly, to get us into the house we wanted. I have no hesitation recommending Steve to anyone looking for a home, and if we should ever decide to move, Steve will be the first person we call.
Steve recently helped my wife and I find and purchase a new home for our family. His expertise and experience was invaluable throughout the process. Steve is a seasoned professional, highly recommended by his clients and respected by his peers and other related professionals. He is a great listener, patient, nicely tenacious, detail oriented, thorough, available and responsive. Steve is also probably the most resourceful person I have ever met. When we ran into some trouble related to issues found by our home inspector Steve was quickly able to engage an engineer and contractor to help resolve the situation. In fact no matter what we needed Steve always knew someone we could call who would deliver the same level of service we received from him. To top it all off Steve is a great guy to know and I’m happy to have met him and now count him as a friend.
Steve was involved in every step of the purchase of our new home- from suggesting it to us in the first place all the way to last minute changes at closing. We had several problems come up as a result of concerns found by the home inspector. Steve walked us through these, advising us in our interactions with the sellers, calling in structural engineers and even last minute contractors when needed. Without his involvement I am not sure that we would have followed through on this house that we now call home.
Our house sold within six weeks. He was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the process. He is a true professional and you can see he cares about the quality of service he is giving you. I would definitely go to him again for my real estate needs.
Steve spent 2yrs helping me to find my house. He didn’t waiver once, he kept me updated on everything that was being marketed in the area of my search. With each house I toured his experience came to the forefront, from window to flooring he knew the material and installation. Steve worked for me throughout the whole process and even after I closed he made sure I was happy with the house. I plan to have Steve list my old house when it goes on the market. Thank you Steve.
Steve facilitated the purchase of my home. He provided excellent service in a professional, but personal manner. He took the time to understand what requirements I had for my new home, and presented houses that fit my needs/wants. He went out of his way to respond to my requests to view homes in a timely manner, even showing me a house at the last moment one evening when I wanted to see it for the second time before making an offer. He gave excellent advice on localities and individual homes. For instance, he knew that as a single woman, I did not want a “fixer upper”, and refrained from showing me any homes that needed a lot of work, even suggesting we take one off the list after seeing that it required more care than how it appeared on the surface, i.e., it had been given a cheap “face lift” but the core problems still remained unaddressed. When it was time to close on my new home, he took care of all the details, making it a simple, smooth event. I am very happy that a friend suggested I contact him when I first mentioned house hunting, and would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Tammy M. Angies List
Steve provided realtor services to us when we moved to his service area from out of state and bought a home. Steve provided excellent service to us as we looked for a house to buy in his service area, first while we were living out-of-state, and then later after we had moved to the area. He is knowledgeable, experienced, listens well and provides insights that are helpful in decision making. He pointed out things in the various houses which we looked at that helped us consider future expense, were we to buy that house. He has an approachable, professional style of interacting and is straight-forward in discussing the pros and cons of the many things a house buyer must consider. He was not pushy and was very patient. He responded to emails quickly (usually the same day) and has a very user friendly web portal in which you can customize your search, keep track of your favorite houses and see status changes on those houses in real time. The portal was a huge help to us as well. I highly recommend Steve to you.
Steve helped us find a home in Roanoke, VA. We are from out of state and were referred to Steve by another realtor.
All I can say is working with Steve has been fun and a pure pleasure. He drove us around Roanoke showing us everything we wanted to look at. We had no idea where we wanted to live or what we wanted to live in, but Steve hung in there and kept showing us listings. He provided us with daily emails that showed us what was new on the market. He showed up every morning to pick us up at our door to take us out looking. He responded to every email and every phone call quickly.
Steve was there through the buying process to make sure everybody was doing what they were supposed to do when they were supposed to do it. He kept an eye on everything and we closed when we were supposed to.
Here is an example of how Steve goes above and beyond, before we closed we had to have a home inspection. We are from out of state and were not in VA when the inspection was going to happen, who do you think arranged the inspection and was there for the whole thing? Yes it was Steve. These days it’s very hard to get anybody to do what they say they will do, I can’t imaging making the largest purchase in my life with a realtor I couldn’t depend on. Fortunately for us, Steve is a fantastic realtor and a wonderful person! I know for a fact he works for his clients from 6:00 am to late into the evening to make sure their experience is as good as it can be. I know I’m going on and on, but you would be lucky to have Steve Caldwell as your agent.
I selected Steve as my listing/selling agent based on his well prepared and well-presented proposal for marketing my house. I received an offer fairly quickly but then ran into some problems related to the home inspection. (My house was over 50 years old). This is where Steve really came through for me. He has extensive knowledge of service/repair people in the Roanoke Valley and was able to arrange visits and estimates quickly. And he showed up when the service people were there to walk thru things with me. The issues were resolved and my sale moved to completion. Do not be misled by Steve’s easy-going style. He has an intense focus on serving the client. He had my interests at heart and went the extra mile to help me when issues arose. I would highly recommend him. Despite the difficulties described, my house sold within two months of listing.
Steve has helped my wife and I buy and sell two houses in the Roanoke, VA area. He is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and I highly recommend him. Not only is he prompt, knowledgeable, and highly professional, he’s a terrific person, too! The total experience with Steve is easy and smooth. He takes the time and goes into detail to make sure my wife and I are kept up to date with everything.
