Steve exceeded our expectations every step of the way. He sold our condo with competing offers in less than a week and then focused on finding us the house of our dreams. Without a doubt we would not be home owners right now if it weren't for Steve's expertise, guidance and commitment to getting us exactly what we wanted.

We sat down with Steve and were shocked with the knowledge and statistics he had which really helped us understand the market we were in. His presentation was very professional. Our previous agent just kept pushing for a price reduction, but we didn’t understand why. Steve was able to present to us a strategy for selling our home in a tough market.
He followed up with us consistently and we really liked his detail oriented approach with all the aspects of our sale. We felt our previous agent just put a sign on the property and hoped for the best. Our experience with Steve couldn’t have been farther from that. We were continually discussing our progress and things we could do to help with buyers first impressions when they viewed our home. He had us watching comparable homes so that we understood how competitive we were in the market place. He showed up early to all showings to make sure the lights were on, toilet seats down, fireplace was on, etc. He even bought a picture and a lamp since one of our bedrooms was quite dark.
We were also disappointed with our previous agent’s knowledge of online search engines. We are big craigslist users and are always looking on mls.ca. Steve posted our listing on craigslist and even added our open houses separately each week. Our open houses were always updated on mls.ca and his webpage. His pictures were taken by a professional and they looked great. Each room was bright and welcoming. Our last agent took his own photos and they were so dark you couldn’t even tell which room you were looking at.
Steve got us a sale in tough market and then helped us negotiate a great deal on our new home. We may not have sold for as much as we could have 6 months ago, but once we got a great deal on our purchase we felt great about the whole thing. Steve kept us positive, but also realistic with what was happening in the market. We’re so happy and grateful we have been able to make our move in this difficult market.

Once we determined a price, Steve took pictures and measurements and our home was listed the next day. Steve held three open houses for us, and was coming back 2 – 3 times a week to show other agents and their clients our home. When listening to him talk to potential clients, he sounded like he would if he were trying to sell his own home. This was great.
Steve also helped us buy our first home. He was very helpful in asking the home owners the right questions. Questions we might not think to ask because we’ve never owned a home. He even met us when the home inspector came to inspect our new home.
Steve was able to sell our condo in three weeks, and we got exactly what we were asking for (the other condo’s for sale in our building took much longer to sell)
I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone…in fact, I already have.

He was the first realtor who treated us as potential buyers even though it was abundantly clear we wouldn't be buying his million dollar listing. Not only did he treat us with respect, he did not throw his business cards at us once he found out we were looking to list. Steve was extremely knowledgeable about properties and banking information. He always came prepared, acted professional and presented our listing as if each person coming to look could be our buyer. We appreciated his input and advice regarding our situation and didn't feel pressured into making decisions.
After selling our listing, Steve helped negotiate a deal on our wonderful new home. Without his care and 'know-how', we may not have been so lucky.
The thing that most impressed us was not only was he a constant support but after the sale closed he still helped us with issues regarding our new house and contractors. It was wonderful having Steve as our realtor and he made the process very smooth. We have already recommended him to family and friends and we know he will do an outstanding job for anyone.
