"I've worked with a number of agents and Steve is by far the best. His skills as an agent far exceeded those of the agents I've worked with in the past. He is professional, reliable, honest, knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Steve is an example of going above and beyond. He helped me steer clear of a couple problematic properties and advocated on my behalf every step of the process. Since I left town soon after I saw the property, the entire process from offering to closing was done while I was remote. Steve promptly resolved issues that came up. This included figuring out a loan issue, taking multiple trips to thoroughly inspect the property, and repairing an item that the seller failed to disclose. I'm grateful to have had Steve as my agent and definitely want to work with him again in the future."
