Steve was a consummate professional and guided us expertly through the home buying process from initial contact to closing. We are very grateful to have worked with him, especially as first-time buyers in a new area. He always made us feel comfortable, never pressured us, and catered his service to our needs and preferences. We never felt like he had his own agenda but instead felt that he was always focused on our interests and desires. Steve had an acute ability to listen and respond to what we were looking for, ultimately helping us to find the place that made us happiest. He assisted us in thinking of things we hadn't considered, knew when to offer opinions and advice at the right times, and gave us the space to discuss things privately when we wanted to. Steve was exactly what we were looking for in a realtor; someone to guide us through our shopping, be a sounding board when we had questions, and an ally for us as the buyer. Steve was the one who found the home we ultimately ended up buying and recommended we go see it. We couldn't have done it without him, and we couldn't be happier.
