Clients are saying:
"Steve was perfect in all elements. This was a difficult deal, and pre and post transaction he was extremely supportive, ethical, and advised us in the best way. His professionalism is unparalleled. I would recommend Steve to my closest friends and family, in fact I already have. People don't realize the difference it makes when you have an excellent real estate professional in your corner, it is incredible value. Steve is of the highest character and we really enjoyed working with him."
"Steve was very knowledgeable of the Arlington Heights area. We knew very little of the area, and Steve gave us great information on the local amenities, parks and schools. He was very willing to take us on as many showings as we requested and accommodated several last minute requests. As this was our first home purchase, Steve was very thorough on explaining the purchase and negotiation process."
"Steve worked with my wife and I for seven months (seven!) to ensure that we found the perfect home. Steve was always available and went above and beyond to ensure our happiness. We would highly recommend working with Steve and @Properties to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home."
"Steve was a tremendous help in finding the perfect property for our family!! After finding the home, him and his team were made the process incredibly smooth and easy!"
"I found Steve through a mutual connection at Church and Steve was more than accommodating and responsive to meeting around our schedule. He showed up for our first meeting at our house on a Saturday in a suit to discuss his philosophy and what he could provide for us. One of those skills was his ability to do appraisals, he ended up encouraging us to list our home 10% above what we hoped at best to sell it for. Within two weeks of listing it we had 9 private showings and 2 dozen people come through our open house. Our home sold within 4% of asking price. Finally, he helped us find our forever home that we could only be able to afford because of his ability to sell our home well above what we though we could. Bottom line, If you're shopping for a realtor Steve is well worth your time to pick up the phone and spend 5 minutes to hear how he can best support you!"
