Why buy with us?
Everyone dreams of owning their own home. When buying your first home, it can be a very exciting, yet anxiety filled experience. However, if you know what to expect during the home buying process you will be more relaxed and comfortable knowing that we will be by your side every step of the way guiding you through it and looking out for your best interests. Below are some of the things we will be helping you with along the way!Start your Home Search Here
Setting a Budget
Before the house hunting process begins, it is important to know how much you can afford. Expenses to consider include the down payment, monthly expenses, property taxes and any home insurance costs. These will all have to be considered before the home buying process begins as they are typically included in your new monthly payment. Since a person’s credit score determines their interest rate, knowing your score ahead of time can help you decide if now is a good time to buy or not. An individual’s debt-to-income ratio must also fall within acceptable limits of the home’s cost. Once you have determined these things, and if you feel that your budget has enough room to afford a new home, then its time to begin the home buying process!
When looking for a loan, be sure to get more than one loan quote to get the best interest rate and loan terms for your mortgage. Different banks and companies will offer different loan origination fees and by shopping around you can often times save yourself a lot of money. Be sure to also check your loan officers website for testimonials and information. A good loan officer will offer you many online resources and tools. Before you lock in your rate, be sure to check the daily rate with the rate your loan officer gives you to ensure you are getting the lowest rate possible. Interest rates will determine how much a mortgage will cost each month and come in fixed or adjustable terms. Mortgage lengths can range from 15 years to 30 years with some loan providers now offering 40 year mortgages as well. The longer the repayment term, the lower the payments will be. However, the interest accrued will also be higher on a longer loan.
Making an Offer & Negotiations
There is an art to making an offer on a home. Typically, sellers place their home’s value a little higher than their desired price. A buyer will send in a lower bid, in a reasonable range, and the seller will counter with an offer somewhere in the middle. We will be watching for signs of problems in the home and will make suggestions to you regarding the offer. Listen closely and be sure to ask questions, as your offer is an important part of buying a home. You want to make sure all of your bases are covered. That’s where having us as your Buyer’s Agent is most valuable so your rights and interests are protected. With our experience on your side, we will be able to help you negotiate a lower price that sometimes includes concessions or closing costs and avoid homes that have problems. Our job is to protect YOU in the contract.
Escrow and Closing Costs
Before the home is legally transferred to you, the closing process must occur. During this phase, you will sign all of the mortgage documents, pay closing costs, and sign various other legal documents. We will be there to help you through it all. Once all of the papers are signed and monies are transferred, the keys to your new home are yours! The only thing left to do is move into your humble abode. This may occur immediately after the closing or at the date set in the closing documents.
Better Home Search

In fact, it’s even better than Zillow, Trulia and the many other real estate websites out there because our site is directly connected to the local MLS! What does that mean for you?

The My Account feature has a ton of great tools designed to cater directly to you and provide you with a home-buying experience. And it’s Mobile friendly!
Lenders normally require that you insure your home. Home Insurance Policies cover the costs to fix any damages that might occur to the home. The price of this insurance is dependent on a home’s age, location and value and the insurance company you choose. Be sure to call around and get several quotes or ask us for a list of vendors we work with. Insurance agents will oftentimes be able to take your information over the phone and get back to you the same day with a quote. Once you choose a company to insure your new home, the cost of that policy is normally added into your closing costs and sent into an escrow account to be paid to the insurance company directly the first year.
Getting a home inspection is a vital part of the home buying process. These inspections ensure that the home’s foundation, ceiling, heating, electrical system, walls, plumbing and entryways are up to certain standards. Sometimes the bank will require a home inspection however; many times they leave it to the buyer to purchase their own. It is extremely important to protect yourself by getting a home inspection right away. You typically have 10 days from an accepted offer to get the home inspected. Many buyers have been saved from disaster by taking the time to spend the extra $200 – $400 to get a home inspection only to find out the house has major problems allowing them to back out of the contract before it is too late. If you need help finding a Home Inspector, ask us! We can give you recommendations for many service providers that we work with all the time!

Very detailed and honest
Very detailed and honest and was able to show the houses requested on time.Right guy for the job and was able to explain the pros and cons of buying a house .He doesn’t push us to buy the houses he shows.We can trust him and at least 15 of my friends had bought houses through him and everyone has the same feedback.
First time buyers will be very pleased
Steve knows this area, different vendors, lenders and builders better than anyone. He was very quick to respond to phone calls and emails and very prompt in getting paperwork together. He introduced us to a great local lender, Home Inspection team and also did all back and forth emails, discussions between Seller, Lender and Title company. He was great and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. First time buyers, such as myself, will be very pleased with the knowledge and professionalism of Steve!
He’s the best
Steve is the best agent in Northwest Arkansas. We’ve been calling on Steve to help us buy/sell for over 13 years. I wouldn’t have anyone else work in my corner. Trust, expertise, negotiating, knowledge of the market. He’s the best.
I strongly suggest considering Steven Atwell
In preparation for a move to Northwest Arkansas there were many details that had to be dealt with. My own experience as a successful Real Estate Broker for eighteem years (retired) said to hire the best RE Broker that I could find. After evaluating several candidates, Steven Atwell included, it became an easy decision. Steven was very impressive from the start. His knowledge of the market is outstanding. We were seven hundred miles apart ……Responsiveness was critical and he did an incredible job! Outstanding negotiation skills are a very strong suit for Steven!
I strongly suggest considering Steven Atwell, Real Estate Professional if you are thinking of moving to Northwest Arkansas!
He has our highest recommendation
We moved to Arkansas from out-of-state. We worked with Steven for 3 years to find our current home. His many years of expertise in building homes and his contacts in home maintenance helped us identify homes to stay away from even if it meant he didn’t get a sale. He’s very patient and was always willing to go above and beyond to help us during our search and that willingness made our interstate move easier. He also maintains contact with reliable house maintenance services like plumbers and handymen. Steven really knows the local market, neighborhoods, and builders; he didn’t just help us find the right house, he helped us find the right home. He even provided very valuable advice on how to work with the local city government after we arrived in Bentonville. We’ve worked with other local real estate agents before meeting Steven and he is absolutely our real estate agent of choice. He has our highest recommendation.
He was the most helpful reliable realtor
Steve was the calm most reliable resource in the process of purchasing a home in Bella Vista. I wish that he could be cloned because he was the most helpful reliable realtor that I’ve had the pleasure to work with.
We really appreciate the work he put in to us
Steve was great with our search for a house. He helped us tailor what we liked about houses we saw until we found the house that was what we wanted. Steve spoke his mind freely about both the good an bad about the houses we saw, and he was patient with us as we toured a wide range of homes. We really appreciate the work he put in to us.
He greatly surpassed any other realtor we’ve worked with
Steve is a fantastic realtor. He greatly surpassed any other realtor we’ve worked with as buyers. He really went the extra mile for us. At times we were out of town and he went and checked out every house we asked him about and reported on them or toured it with us on Skype. He is extremely knowledgeable about construction, and looked into every small detail of each home’s construction and let us know where there were problems and whether they were easily fixable or not. He even did things like climb up into the attic of a home to find out if there was sufficient insulation. He never tried to “sell” us on a house but was very honest about whether he thought a house was good or not – if a house had drawbacks, he was clear about pointing them out. He also is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was helpful in answering all our questions related to living here and caring for a home, such as pest control, utilities, appliances, amenities, building a dock, etc. When we found the home we wanted to buy, he was a great advocate in the inspection, making sure no stone was left unturned. He is also very skillful in negotiating on your behalf. I highly recommend him!
A GREAT realtor!
We feel very fortunate to have found Steve! He stuck with us through over a year of indecision in our home search in Bella Vista, really tuning in to our changing desires. He never tried to “sell” us on anything, and he brought a wealth of practical knowledge to the process.And when we found the home our hearts knew was the “one,” he shepherded us through to the closing with superb skill.
Steve is a down to earth guy with an easy, unpretentious way about him, and a GREAT realtor!
I highly recommend his service to anyone!
Steve really helped us with a cross country move! He helped my husband find a home that was perfect even though I was unable to be there to pick it out! Process went smoothly. Answered all my questions quickly! I highly recommend his service to anyone!
Best Agent you will ever find
Best Agent you will ever find for all your real estate needs. Very accommodating and knowledgeable personality, Thanks for your services Steven. You are the best!
Would love to work with Steve again
Steve Atwell was kind, knowledgable and a wonderful person to work with on buying our first home. Any questions we had were immediately answered and followed up with specific recommendations. He went above and beyond in our closing to make sure we felt like we had a good deal. Would love to work with Steve again in the future!
Steven was absolutely the best!
Steven was absolutely the best! He took great care of us and went above and beyond our expectations. He expertly guided us through the entire process and made everything so easy for us. We would highly recommend Steven to anyone that is looking for a stress-free home buying experience. Thanks Steven!
Because of him, I was able to purchase my first home
Steven Atwell guided me through each step of finding a home. Because of him, I was able to purchase my first home. The day the seller put the home – which I bought – on the market, Steven contacted me about it. He helped me negotiate on the price that evening.
He is the only truly great realtor I have ever known
He is the only truly great realtor I have ever known. I just can’t say enough about how well this man does his job. He is above all a negotiator. As buyers, we paid 15K less than what we told him we were willing to pay. That PROVES that he puts his client first since paying what we were willing to pay would have just meant more commission for him. He made a good argument to the sellers about why he felt our offer was fair based on the market and they agreed. Next, he knows homes. He did construction. He pointed out a small crack in the ceiling at a property we looked at and told us why that showed poor construction and that we needed to walk away from a house that looked high-end to my untrained eyes. Also, he is the first agent we’ve used that found the property for us that we ended up buying. We liked his pick better than our internet finds! He was prompt to resolve concerns and ran the transaction so smoothly that we never felt a bump. He also advocated for us for things we didn’t know we needed. When our AC broke two weeks after moving in, we were happy to realize that it was fully covered under the protection plan he negotiated and he had even talked the sellers into paying extra so we would have a very small deductible on the plan. We didn’t even ask him to do that! He was respectful to the sellers and kept them happy too as far as I know. I’m dealing with an unscrupulous agent now in another state and miss Steven so much! He may seem a bit abrupt at first but this man does not use flowery language or tell you what you want to hear. There is no BS from this guy. We chose him based on his reviews here on Zillow, and all these positive reviews don’t lie. If you have a chance to work with Steven, say yes! He is one of the good ones!
Saved me from paying additional money
Steve is an experienced person in this field. He helped us a lot in complete processing. He guided us right from the negotiation until closing of the loan.
One good instance is, I first initiated loan with one online lender and it happened to be that the final closing cost seems to be way more than expected. As I was not aware of this loan process, I reached Steve and he spoke to the lender and saved me from paying additional money from my pocket.
He is reachable at any time on all days. I am glad that I did business with him and surely will recommend Steve to my friends and everyone.
We were so lucky to find Steven
We were so lucky to find Steven who knows the NWA area so well! We had very limited time to find “the one” home and Steven helped us do just that! He was professional, helpful in every turn and handled details (we were out of state) that made buying our dream home seamless. I think anyone would benefit from Steven’s expertise in Real Estate. We are certainly glad he was here for us!
We felt he always had our best interests in mind
Very helpful and proficient with both the buying and selling process. Very quick to set up showings for us and to find answers to our questions about the different properties. Had a good feel for realistic selling and buying prices on the various homes we looked at and had suggestions to make the offers acceptable.
Steven was never pushy and always was straightforward and honest when answering our questions. We felt he always had our best interests in mind.
I highly recommend Steven for both buyer and seller!
I happened by chance upon Steven through a property inquiry on Zillow. I am/was most pleased with his services and felt it important to write a review so others would feel confident to use him too. Steven knows NW Arkansas really well. He’s not afraid to drive anywhere to show property. He’s an experienced builder which helped when looking at the “bones of a home”. And, he knows what to offer, the starting point for negotiating. He has numerous contacts, i.e., service professionals, to assist in most everything needed when buying and having bought a home. I also suggested to my 83 yr old mom she use Steven to sell her house in Bella Vista and he had an offer for her within a week and got very close to full price. He was patient with her too as she filled out the necessary paperwork mostly by hand rather than computer which she was adverse to doing. He’s therefore helpful and savvy as both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s. My mom and I trusted him 100%. We never questioned him having our best interests at heart. He was responsive to all my requests, my rather quirky criteria, which he never questioned but made sure I was happy with what I purchased. He showed me places within 24 hrs if he could get us in since I was often on a time crunch. The only advise I’d give a buyer is you have to be proactive too, searching on Zillow and utilizing the customized portal Steven sends you which can feel overwhelming, but just use your gut feeling in “saving” and “eliminating” properties. It’s basically a team effort and though it may feel like trying to find a “needle in a haystack”, with Steven’s help you WILL find what you are looking for. I highly recommend Steven for both buyer and seller! He’s a really good guy to boot and well respected among other realtors in the area which I think says a lot about Steven!
We had a great experience when buying our home
Steven knows the area and builders better than anyone and gives his honest opinion. We had a great experience when buying our home. Would definitely recommend for anyone buying or selling a home in the area.
Keeps your best interest in mind
Very knowledgeable. Good coach. Keeps your best interest in mind. Made himself available when he could. Went way out his way to show us property out in the country.
Steve was extremely helpful and patient
Steve was extremely helpful and patient. It took us a while to find our house and we looked and looked and looked and he worked with this carefully and insured we were taking care of the entire time. Once we found our home and made the offer he was quick prompt and was willing to help anyway he could turn sure we were satisfied with the process. I would recommend him!!
Great guy with extensive knowledge
Great guy with extensive knowledge about the buildings. He is very quick to point about the quality of the materials used in the house.
Provides details and as much as feedback needed on the house and let us make the decision.
Responds quickly to calls and messages and tries to help in person for small errands instead of waiting for the builder to turn up.
We had a very pleasant home buying experience
Steve is a through professional and the love for his job is evident from the service he renders to customers. We had a very pleasant home buying experience just because of Steve. He went above and beyond his responsibilities to ensure that we had a smooth transaction all the way through. He is very courteous and knowledgeable on the customer needs and the locality. I would highly recommend Steve.
His years of experience shows
Steven did a great job showing us houses in Bella Vista. His years of experience shows. He was very helpful and we enjoyed getting to know him as well.
GREAT REALTOR, GREAT GUY
Steven is an excellent realtor. He was our realtor for our bentonville home purchase. Diligent preparation for all open houses suiting to our needs. Quick to call out the pros and cons BUT never quick to push a sale.
What i liked most is that through the course of this process has become a good friend. I have called him numerous times, after the purchase, on trivial matters and he as always guided me well. I have also recommended him to some of my friends who have seeked guidance on property related matters. Client or not, he has always extended help.
GREAT REALTOR, GREAT GUY…
We could NOT have done it without him
Steve Atwell was our realtor when we moved from Arizona to Bentonville Arkansas. We were building a house in Bentonville but living in a different state. Steve was our eyes and ears through the entire process. He was always looking out for our best interest. Simply put, we could NOT have done it without him. I would highly recommend Steve for your next move in the NW Arkansas area.
Steven was very professional & helpful!
Steven was very professional & helpful! I would highly recommend to anyone! He helped us with the process of buying our first home and was there any time we needed him. He was honest and wanted to help us find the perfect house and he did! I am so thankful that he was our agent & will use him in the future.
Steven Atwell was very professional
Steven Atwell was very professional and worked with us for months to find the right home. Would highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking to buy a home in Northwest Ar.
Thanks Steve for your hard work
What is special about Steve is that he is not just in the business of selling. He really wants to get the right house for his customers. Steve pointed out things about homes we would have bought on our own, and that were more expensive than the one we ended up with. His advice was clear, logical, and consistent with what you would expect with someone having 35 years in the business. Thanks Steve for your hard work and helping me grow through 3 homes in this area. 🙂
Steve is an outstanding realtor
Steve is an outstanding realtor according to my standards. He is professional but in a personal way. He listened to what I wanted and helped me find just that place exactly, rather than trying to convince me I should want what he was selling. I am an out-of-state buyer and had two days to do a concentrated search. We emailed and talked back and forth and I narrowed the search to about 12 properties before coming to Arkansas. Steve suggested that some of the homes I had picked didn’t really fit the criteria I had chosen, but when I said I still wanted to see them, he willingly lined up viewings anyway. He was right! They weren’t at all what I wanted but learning what I didn’t want was an important part of the decision-making process for me. He gave me the freedom to figure that out even though it meant a lot more work for him. Steve was well-informed which was essential for me because I was not familiar with the area. And if he didn’t know the answer to a question, he said so and found out for me. He gave me good advice about negotiating a price when I asked for it, and took care of lining up the inspection and overseeing repairs since I live in another state. And one of the best things was that throughout the process he responded to my texts, emails and calls in a timely fashion. It was a pleasure working with Steve and if I am in the market for property in northwest Arkansas again, I’ll immediately call Steve.
He was very informative, aggressive, and honest
Moving from southwest Missouri we really didn’t know much about the area and Steven informed us of pros and cons of every community. He was very informative, aggressive, and honest throughout the whole process of finding out home.
He is the best
He is the best in Northwest Arkansas. I will use him all the time. He is friendly and knows what he is doing. You can ask him anything you want to know whether you are a first time home owner or looking for investment property. He knows about local builders and their reputations. Steve has always been available too! Great guy!
I would definitely recommend
Steven was a pleasure to work with. He was very accommodating to our schedule, and was always responsive and timely in his communication. Always had our best interests in mind throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend.
Steve is best realtor
Steve is best realtor we’ve ever worked with. He’s smart, thorough, and above all honest. We routinely rely on him for honest assessments, analysis and recommendation and have never been disappointed. He has a nose for a property and is not afraid to put in the time and effort to get a complicated deal done. I strongly recommend him and will certainly work with him again in the future!
He will always look for customer satisfaction
Steve is really very nice person. The most important part about him is his patience. He can show you how many houses you without any hesitation and he will always look for customer satisfaction rather than making money. I would strongly recommend him.
I refuse to work with any other realtor
Mr.Steve is too good that i refuse to work with any other realtor. He helped me buy three houses in Rogers / Bentonville, AR area at awesome prices and walked with me to setup my rental property business. Which realtor would go that extent ? He has all the contacts, connection and business expertise. Many houses that i liked and wanted to buy right away, he showed me the problems in the house and why i shouldn’t buy it etc. Today all my friends consult me to buy a house, but everything i know about housing was infused into me by Mr.Steve. In less than two years, all the three houses have appraised more than 40K each. Steve – you are a rock star realtor!!
Absolute pleasure to have
I was very thorough in choosing my buyer’s agent. After interviewing four different agents, Steve was the only one who had the “right” answers for my peace of mind. Steve was great to work with as a first-time home-buyer. He was straightforward, honest, and relaxed. Absolute pleasure to have as my buyer’s agent and am recommending him to anyone who asks how my closing went so smooth. We’re very happy in our new home!
HE LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED
MR. ATWELL IS THE BEST REALTOR WE HAVE EVER WORKED WITH. HE IS NOT PUSHY, BUT HE LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED AND NOTHING TO CHANCE. HE IS VERY DETAILED AND HAS A LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS-BANKERS, INSURANCE AGENTS AND REPAIRMEN THAT CAN BE TRUSTED. WE WERE SELLING PROP. IN MO. TO CLOSE THE DEAL IN AR. AND HE GLADLY GAVE US ADVICE TO PROTECT US IN THE SALE. HE WENT OVER AND ABOVE FOR US AND HE WILL FOR YOU. HIRE HIM, AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. HIS WEBSITE IS USER FRIENDLY AND ACCURATE.. WE WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL HE FOUND US OUR DREAM RETIREMENT HOME. TWZ AND NKZ
Steven did an outstanding job
Steven did an outstanding job from beginning to end. From meeting us at the property, describing features and taking photos, too going the extra mile with last minute changes and after hours phone calls. Steven is professional yet personable. He advised us on many levels of the buying process. Showed us common items to look for before accepting the final offer and made every effort to work out the details between us and the builder. I would recommend Steven for any style home. Knowledgeable and prompt.
Easy to work with
Easy to work with. Was interested in making a sale and returned emails/calls in a timely manner and was great to deal with. I’d recommend to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
Steve has very good experience in construction field
The property we were buying started with selecting lot, customizing the plan and going with construction. Steve has very good experience in construction field and his expertise helped in taking right decision and helpful in identifying the quality of work done. Apart from this, he is extremely patient, helps with good suggestions, and gives you enough support and time when looking for properties.
We gladly recommend him to all prospective home buyers
He is very knowledgeable in every aspect of home buying and building. We got our home built and we couldn’t have been happier. Steve was there for us for the entire time, till we moved in. He is very patient and punctual, at the same time good with dealing with our contractor who after one point became very difficult to work with. We are glad that Steve was there to guide and support us throughout the process.
We gladly recommend him to all prospective home buyers and wish you all a happy house hunting!
I highly recommend calling Steve
Within less than a month of meeting him, he found a property that was perfect for us, a property that already had received an offer from the second day of listing. Steve suggested to make an offer more attractable to the seller. The seller accepted our offer right a way, that is a professional approach he demonstrated, he was right and we got the house, that says a lot about the kind of person he is. He is about the right fit for the buyer not just making a sell and moving on.
He is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry.
I highly recommend calling Steve if you are looking for someone to help you guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in the very competitive housing market.
Steven exceeded every expectation
Steven exceeded every expectation we had for a realtor. His knowledge of the area, the housing market, and what to look for in a home were invaluable. He was also ready at a moments notice and got us into 16 homes over the course of 4 days. He also helped us through everything that comes after making the offer, like home inspections and working with mortgage brokers. Even though we knew he had other clients he was working with at the time, he always made us feel like we were his only priority.
I was amazed
I would recommend Steven highly. We live out of state, therefore our time was limited to view properties. We met Steven on a Saturday at 9:00 a.m. and he showed us properties until 5:00 p.m. He was organized even when we threw in 3 more houses to look at. He did not flinch. Steven did not rush or pressure us at any time. He was very knowledgeable about the structures of the homes and surroundings. We learned a lot from him. When we found the perfect house — he immediately negotiated and walked us thru the process so smoothly. I was amazed. We would recommend Steven to our closest friends and he would be the first we would go to again.
If we ever move again we hope Steve is still in this area!
We have used Steve twice…to buy our first home and then to sell that home and buy our new home. He is very knowledgeable about everything from making a good offer and ballpark estimate of what to bring to closing to finding a good handyman even after we are in our new home. He helped us find the best deals for our mortgage lender and even gave us real estate advice before we had even pUT our home on the market. He is trustworthy and works to get the best deal for his clients. If we ever move again we hope Steve is still in this area! 100% recommend him for anyone.
Steven is very dedicated
Steven is very dedicated in finding the right home for you. We never felt any impatience from him when our search seemed to go on and on. He is so knowledgable. We trusted his judgement on all our questions. We felt very fortunate to have found him.
If we ever are needing a realtor again it will be Steven
We were “just looking” for a vacation home and had a wide range of ideas. We also lived almost 3 hours away. Steven was accommodating and very organized. He had our homes scheduled for our visit and was most patient with us–spending a full Saturday with us and worked to get us in properties we added on at the last minute.. He didn’t try to sell us– he tried to help us find what we would be happy with. We found the perfect house and he arranged for us to do all the paper work online. He also arranged for a contactor to meet with us on the weekend and after closing took his time to drive back to the lake to leave a key for us. Small things that made a big difference. He advised us, was honest with us and didn’t mind giving us contrary opinions or thoughts to consider.
If we ever are needing a realtor again it will be Steven
He is absolutely wonderful!
He is absolutely wonderful! He has gone a mile and a half to take care of us in our home buying process. He is a buyer’s agent but he will save you money by giving free advice (no agent fee for him at closing) should you choose to sell your home by owner. He also buys a home warranty for your new home out of his agent fee from who you buy your home from. He used to be a contractor and his expertise in home construction was fantastic to have since we were looking at older homes to get more house for our dollar. And he has a network of people to fix just about anything. We had a ton of repairs to do in our home (sellers refused to fix) we just bought. So he made an addendum to the closing statement, having the sellers buy the warranty instead of him and HE paid his guy to get most of it fixed for the price of the home warranty. He also had a cracked window fixed and billed the sellers through closing costs. He has be so helpful and patient with us. He works around our schedule. Sometimes he seemed more invested than we were. He would extensively research any property we wanted to make an offer on to find any grounds for offering a lower price. Because we were so particular about our criteria, he let me look for the ones we wanted to see and periodically made suggestions if he found one he thought we might like. He has the second highest selling rate on Zillow but 1st place is a team of 5 agents and their per agent rate is lower than his. Also, he’s very down to earth and he’s a country gent. Very personable. I have absolutely no complaint which says something for me because my history with real estate agents.
Absolutely ‘The Best’ Buyer’s Agent
Absolutely ‘The Best’ Buyer’s Agent in NWA! He is highly knowledgeable in all aspects of buying/building a home right from selection of location and construction to handling difficult builders. He truly looks out for the buyer’s best interest, which is extremely important when choosing an agent. The best thing we like about Steve is that, he is always punctual on his appointments(usually he is present at the location 5 minutes before the said time). With his guidance at every step of our house construction process, we have finally moved into our ‘Dream Home’. We highly recommend Steve to all prospective buyers! If there was an option to rate him with 10 stars, we would gladly give him 10 stars:)
He gave great advice
Steve was recommended, and I can understand why. We were buying from another state, and Steve always kept in touch via text and e-mail. We received automated listing notifications that fit the description we gave Steve, and then when it was time to narrow it down and spend a day looking at houses, he was on time and we were never delayed while going from house to house.
He always had “a guy” he knew if we needed an A/C expert, or a pest control person, and his own knowledge of a wide variety of homeownership-related topics impressed us again and again.
When it came time to make an offer, Steve was right on top of everything. He gave great advice, which we definitely needed, and was patient but honest.
Steve is great at his job — period.
I will be a return customer
Steven has to be the most honest, helpful, and resourceful real estate agent in the business. He is a straight shooter and gets the job done. I am new to the Fayetteville area and to Arkansas in general. He provided me with excellent advice on logistics of the city and was able to find the property that fit my budget. Besides his extensive knowledge of real estate he is a great resource on home improvements and is very familiar with all the contractors in the NWA area. He made the contract and closing process painless. Steven has a way to make you feel like his only client. I highly recommend Steven for all of your real estate needs. I will be a return customer.
Steve will go out of his way
Steve will go out of his way to help you!!! He was the best realator I’ve ever delt with. I was out of state and he kept me in the loop on any houses that were in my price range. If you’re serious about buying a property Steve is the best in NWA.
Steve was a wonderful agent
Steve was a wonderful agent. He made the process go so smooth and so quickly. He knew a lot about the area and knew what to look for in our home that we wouldn’t have thought about especially being first time home buyer’s. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I would recommend him to anyone
Steve helped me find and close on a house in a very tight time frame, while also negotiating heavily for the best deal. He is incredibly knowledgeable about construction, and caught many things I never would have dreamed of look for! I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a realtor looking out for their best interests.
Steven was great to work with
Steven was great to work with. He was able to get us into the home on several occasions to look at it and helped schedule the inspection as well. He was very patient in answering questions, showing us around, prepping to set up utilities, and so forth. I would highly recommend him as a real estate agent.
With Steve in charge, you will not overpay
Steve was VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE as to the local market as well an expert in quality construction. Not afraid of negotiation and calls it like he sees it. Will ensure you are paying a fair price based on current market value. With Steve in charge, you will not overpay.
Steve is awesome
Steve is awesome. Would highly recommend him. He doesn’t pressure you or make you feel like you are inconveniencing him. He knows who is who in the area, he can connect you with a banker, repairmen, and services.
He is very impressive
Steven spent 3 months to find a home i am interested in. He is very impressive and didn’t force or try to convince me to close the deal. He is very dependable agent. If i am in market again, he will be my Realtor.
Steve was very helpful, patient and highly responsive
Steve was very helpful, patient and highly responsive. We signed a contract for a house when it was under construction. And Steve helped us in negotiating many things that we wouldn’t have got it done without him. He also used to keep checking on the house at each stage just to make sure it is according to our specifications. He got many things right during construction that we and the builder overlooked. Steve can go out of his way to help us get the house we want. He was very flexible with his timings and was always there on time. I highly recommend him to anyone.
Would highly recommend him to everyone
Mr.Atwell was very patient with us thru the sale of our old home to the purchase of our new home. He helped us with ever aspect and became a dear friend in the process. He really does go out of his way to help in any way he can. He worked around my husband and my career schedules to show us as many homes as he could when our schedules would allow, even if it was early or late in the day. He looks our for your best interest and he will let you know if something is not right. Would highly recommend him to everyone.
If you want a realtor that cares about you as a buyer, call Steve
Steve was so patient with us during our almost two and a half year search for the perfect lake house in Bella Vista! He was very knowledgeable of the area and got to know us personally and what we were looking for. Walking into the house we finally purchased, we knew it was the one immediately. If you want a realtor that cares about you as a buyer, call Steve.
We kinda miss spending time with our new friend
My husband and I were wanting to find an agent that specialized in buying in Bella Vista and we were so blessed to have found Steve for just that. I have a background in Real estate in Missouri, so I knew the qualities we were looking for in an agent.
We were moving from the Little Rock area and Steve took all the stress out of traveling a long distance to look at houses. We trusted him and his opinion, and it did not take him long to pick up on what was most important to us, and he exceeded our expectations.
My mother is a widow and will be moving soon from central Missouri to Bella Vista and I would not trust her with anyone else. I know she will be in good and caring hands.
Steve continues to be an asset for us helping us find reliable resources for any improvements we need to make, putting up fence, adding stone work.
If you are looking for an agent that works as hard as you do to find the home that fits your wants as well as your needs Steven Atwell is the agent you should contact. We are so happy that ws are just settled into our new home, but it is bittersweet because we kinda miss spending time with our new friend.
Mr. Atwell was a blessing
Mr. Atwell was a blessing. As a first time buyer he made the experience easy for me and my family. His level of expertise was evident as we looked through different houses and he pointed out many things I wouldn’t have noticed. He quickly put me in contact with the services I needed (inspector, etc.) to ensure we met our closing date. After going through several realtors, I felt lucky to have Mr. Atwell looking after my affairs. I felt completely confident and secure with my purchase.
I would definitely recommend Steven
I actually found Steven on the Zillow reviews. There were so many great reviews about him that I knew I needed him to help us find our first home and I was not not let down by any means. He always responded to any of my questions within the hour. He also changed his plans around on the weekend to be there during our house inspection after we were in contract. I would definitely recommend Steven to be your Buyer’s agent when looking for a new home.
Easy to work with
Easy to work with. He helped me to buy a house 3 years ago. Now I tried to sell / rent the house. So, he listed my house for free. If he would have sold he asked me only the buying agent free and not the listing fee. Easy to work and has work ethics. Has very good negotiaiton power.
It was a pleasure working with someone that was on our side
Great! It was a pleasure working with someone that was on our side. Steve is also a very fun person to work with. We couldn’t be more pleased. He went the extra mile, to make sure we got to see everything that we wanted to look at, plus his input and advise was more than helpful. Thank You very much.
Steve has performed above and beyond our expectations
Steve has performed above and beyond our expectations to help us locate the right home satisfying every small requirement of ours. We highly recommend Steve if you are looking for a reliable , honest , practical housing expert.
Steve was an excellent agent
Steve was an excellent agent. He provided the critical services that I needed to get the property that I wanted. He did this by being available and listening closely to my concerns. The process took a few months, but he didn’t lose focus. I will use him again when I am ready to purchase my next property.
My wife and I felt blessed
Steve showed us the Home we called about on a two hour notice, met us on site and showed us two more homes that evening and began a search for the type of home we were after. This is the first time I have used a buyers agent and I will never buy again with out. Steve represented us negotiating the purchase, recommending inspectors and contractors and made our home buying experience easy. We are from another state and Steve went way above and beyond to make us comfortable buying our vacation home. My wife and I felt blessed to have a true professional on our team.
Steve will be the first person we call
I contacted Steve about being our buyer’s agent because of a recommendation from the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents. They said he was no longer a member of the association, but other buyers reported having good experiences working with him.
My wife and I had seen a property that required an appointment to view and I ask if Steve could arrange this for us. Two days later we were looking at the property and in another two days we had made an offer. All thought the experience from seeing the house and property until the closing Steve was there to help us and to give us sound advice. While I could tell Steve made sure to let me and my wife make our own decisions, he would give advice, never minding to answer or find the answer to our questions. The whole process moved at a speed my wife and I was comfortable with and Steve was always available to answer and e-mail or a phone call.
It will be quite awhile before my wife and I need another house, but when or if we do, Steve will be the first person we call.
My wife’s mother is planing to move to this location and I have already told her it would be a mistake to not use Steve’s services.
I highly recommend him as a buyer’s agent!
Steve helped us with the process of purchase. He “assumed” the role of buyer and accomplished things we were unaware of. We were out of town for addressing the inspection issues, Steve acted on our behalf and finished this follow up sompletely and perfectly. He is serious and thoughtful and pointed out potential problems that we had overlooked. I highly recommend him as a buyer’s agent!!
Steve is your man
If you want a “no nonsense” type realtor, Steve is your man. He was extremely patient with us while we looked around in the area for just the right house we wanted. We really felt like he was concerned for our long-term happiness too because he would point out things that only inspectors would find. His construction contractor background is very beneficial when asking questions on just about anything regarding how the home was built… like materials, durability, defects, etc. Although he may be busy, it may seem like he is cutting you off short on phone calls, but he’s not. He will always take time for you. He just has to be direct and to the point. I found that he would ‘chit chat’ with me some, but then he had to get on to other things. So, if he happens to be short on the phone, don’t take it personal. He is very fair and honest. I highly recommend!
Very good with understanding the needs and providing guidance
Very good with understanding the needs and providing guidance. Steven is highly responsive and helped us through understanding whole buying processes. Can help more with negotiations though.
Steve is a great pleasure to work with
Steve is a great pleasure to work with and the excellent agent with more information! As we are first time Home Buyer we feel lucky that we found Steve to represent us. We started search from last March 2012 and got our first house this April. He is always patient and happy. We wanted to have house with high ceiling living room within our price range. When started we were not able to find any house in our price range.So Steve found a lot/builder made sure that all our wish where satisfied in our First house. He was always for us if there are any defects in a house. He is more quick on his emails/text/Calls. He negotiated pretty well with the builder. Our house was constructed from scratch and he helped us in all aspects. Steve was only Realtor we worked with we were 200% satisfied with him and his services. We are Happy that we found the right person for our First home. We would definitely recommend Steve if you are looking for a house sure you will find a good deal. We are very satisfied and will also recommend him to our friends.
He’ll even make the call for you!
My husband and I are retired and tired of the Midwest dreary winters. After much research we decided on Northwest Arkansas – primarily the Bella Vista area. We found Steve Atwell’s website and started our search. Steve’s customer service skills are superior. He responds quickly to e-mails, returns telephone calls promptly and his knowledge of the area and real estate market is superior. He is like the Yellow Pages….if you need something done he can provide the name and he’ll even make the call for you! With his help and expertise we found a beautiful home in a great neighborhood and will be moving in a just a few weeks. Thank you Steve for all of your help and patience.
Steve was really great at getting back with us
Steve was really great at getting back with us and keeping us up to date throughout the process. We contacted several agents and Steve responded to us, recommended a mortgage lender and gave us the links to look at more houses before we even heard back from the others.
He is always patient and happy
Steve is a great pleasure to work with! We started from last November and got our first house this March. He is always patient and happy to look at houses with us even on weekends. We want to say he is an excellent agent. I am glad we worked with Steve from the beginning so we didn’t waste too much time. Steve is an expert! He knows a lot about lender information, builder reputation, construction materials and local knowledge. We are very satisfied and will also recommend him to our friends.
Steve was easy to work with and made the process less stressful
I wasn’t sure if we needed an agent since we had already found the house we wanted, but I thought it would be helpful to have someone help us through the process. I contacted Steve solely based on the good reviews on Zillow. I was glad we did. Steve was easy to work with and made the process less stressful. The property we purchased was a foreclosure and there were 3 offers in the mix. Steve advised us on the offer price that would give us the best chance to secure our dream home, and I’m happy to say we got it. Steve also helped point out things related to the construction of the home based on his past experience. Perhaps the thing that impressed me most was Steve’s integrity and following through on any promises.
We are very thankful to Steve for finding us the best house
We are very thankful to Steve for finding us the best house. It took around 1year for us to find the house. Steve was so patient in showing us the houses we were interested in. He was always for us if there are any defects in a house. He negotiated pretty well with the builder. Our house was constructed from scratch and he helped us in all aspects. I would definitely recommend Steve if you are looking for a house.
Steve Atwell is a buyer’s agent in every sense of the word
Steve Atwell is a buyer’s agent in every sense of the word. As we went about our search, Steve pointed out both positive and negative aspects of each property. He truly worked on our behalf through every single step of the process, including finding the perfect home for us. The catch was that this home was not for sale. Steve contacted the homeowners, and indeed, the time was right for them to sell. As a result of Steve’s positive, proactive actions, we are in the perfect home for us. Steve is currently selling our former home, and he’s spared no expense in marketing this home thoughtfully and meticulously. He has shepherded us through an incredible milestone in our lives, and we will be forever grateful to him.
I’ve been doing business with Steve since 2009
I’ve been doing business with Steve since 2009. I’ve purchased 6 investment properties, and just yesterday, a personal residence through Steve. He has successfully navigated me through the foreclosure market and the market at large in NWA. His expertise has made me a wealthy man.
We would definitely recommend him to others!
Steve was very helpful in the initial phase of looking for a house…very responsive and patient, and he had a good knowledge of various areas in northwest Arkansas.
But he was wonderful after we committed to a house. He answered every question, checked on things for us (we were hundreds of miles away), and found all the information we needed in a very timely way. We would definitely recommend him to others!
With his help, we bought our very first house
Steven is very professional and he has a very good knowledge base of NWA real estate. With his help, we bought our very first house. We are very happy working with him and we love the house.
I rarely give five stars to anyone
I rarely give five stars to anyone but Steven Atwell deserves each one. I recently retired and decided to move to NW Arkansas from California. I had bought other homes over the years with less than satisfying experiences by relying on the listing agents. This time around I told myself I would buy a home with the help of a buyer’s agent, someone who had my best interest in mind, not the sellers. After some online research, I selected Steven Atwell to be my agent and it was one of the best decision I ever made. Steve was responsive, helpful, tireless, and just a real nice guy. With his help and guidance I closed escrow on my retirement home in two weeks and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. If you are looking to purchase a home, I recommend Steven Atwell, hands down.
I can’t imagine going through this home buying process without someone like Steven on my side
We already had a home picked out. We asked Steven to show it to us. He was very knowledgeable about the area.
His contractor experience helped us get an idea of things that would need to be repaired in the home we chose.
He has a great business network for everything from lenders to home inspectors.
He was able to negotiate with the seller on our behalf to get all kinds of things repaired and replaced in the house we ended up buying.
I would highly recommend Steven to anyone looking to buy a home in NWA.
I had no prior experience with purchasing real estate so I had never had the chance to work with a buyer’s agent. I can’t imagine going through this home buying process without someone like Steven on my side.
He always stayed in touch
Steve helped us find a great house, he always stayed in touch. He knows the area very well and always had the awsers to our questions.
Steven is an excellent agent
Steven is an excellent agent. We’ve always used a buyer’s agent when purchasing a home in the past and will definitely use Steve for any future home purchases. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and responsive to all requests. He also definitely looks out for your best interests as the buyer, points out things about a property to be aware of, and does not pressure you in any way.
Steven was able to give me the information and tools that I needed
Steven was able to give me the information and tools that I needed to help me get my first house exactly how I wanted. I didn’t know anything about what I was doing and he gave me contacts that I needed to make the process smooth.
He was very patient
Steve is an excellent realtor. We called him based on reviews on zillow and it turned out to be a very positive experience for us. He showed us many..many houses for almost a year before we found the one we bought (in Bentonville for around 350000). He was very patient, is available on the weekends which was very convenient. He would for the most part make himself available at any time that would suit our schedule. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Steve and he would definitely be our realtor for any future real estate dealings.
We would recommend Steve and would use him in the future
Being new to the area, Steve was very knowledgeable of the area, patient with us, and answered any questions or concerns we had. We would recommend Steve and would use him in the future.
Purchasing a home was made easy with the help of Steve
We found Steve to always have the buyer’s interest first and responded immediately to our needs. Purchasing a home was made easy with the help of Steve. He also took the time to find out the type of home that would best meet our interest and current and future living needs. I would highly recommend Steve as a person who is ethical, honest, and puts your interests in front of his own.
I know you will be as pleased with the process as I am
I was trying to purchase a house in NW Arkansas from a distance of 9 hours away. I didn’t know any local real estate agents so I chose Steven because he already had extremely high recommendations from his clients. I now understand why. Steven knows his stuff! He will give you the information you need in a timely manner and follow through with anything he starts. Steven is not pushy. He will gently steer you in the right direction to avoid declining areas and help you find the best house for you. Steven also lined me up with a good local bank to get my mortgage. I highly recommend using Steven Atwell in your home purchasing process. I know you will be as pleased with the process as I am. Thank you, Steven!
Steve Atwell was such a terrific help
Steve Atwell was such a terrific help to me in buying my first home. I am truly a first-time homebuyer — not just the federal government’s definition of a first-timer, which is anyone who’s not bought in the previous three years — and though I’d taken a class in what to do it is still a very confusing process. Knowing which steps to take and in what order was not easy. To complicate matters, I was on a very tight timeline to buy and there were some issues that came up during the inspection that complicated the transaction somewhat. He still helped me make my deadline with a few days to spare and is still checking in with me to see if he can be of help. Initially, I had decided I wanted to hire a true buyer’s agent, not just rely on the seller’s agent or have a dual-agency situation, and the national association for these type of exclusive buyer’s agents said there were no exclusive buyer’s agents in northwest Arkansas, but had 2 names of agents who did mostly (or some) buyer’s work. The other guy never called or e-mailed me after this association contacted both of them for me, but Steve contacted me right away and I knew then he’d be responsive. He always has been quick to return phone calls or e-mails, and has a traveling office in his car with a laptop to make things go quicker. Steve has a team of lenders, inspectors and others he works with to make things happen, and I was able to lock in a 3.5 percent loan, It’s too bad more Arkansans don’t know about or have access to buyer’s agents, or know that in the majority of cases they split the same commission with the seller’s agent/listing agent that the latter normally gets alone, so the buyer would rarely have to pay the buyer’s agent unless it’s an unusual situation, which would be known in advance, and he advised me on what those cases would be and how to avoid them if I wished. I sure wish Steve had some apprentices so there could be more buyer’s representatives in the market. He also set me up on his website’s database, which gave me my own personalized MLS listings set to my criteria that I could prioritize, and it automatically e-mailed me new listings when they came on the market.
Steve would be our choice if we needed to buy again
We can’t say enough about what a great job Steve did in finding our home in Bella Vista. We started working with Steve last summer when we were here to look for a home. He spent the next several months looking for the perfect home for us. Because we had several requirements, Steve patiently worked with us to find a home that met our needs. His contractor knowledge was so helpful as we evaluated each house. He was very open and pointed out things about each home that might be an issue.
Steve has an excellent knowledge of Bella Vista which helped us decide on the location. He was able to answer our questions about local regulations or get us immediate answers if he didn’t know. He was very prompt at all responses and often worked late into the night to get us answers.
We would definitely recommend Steve to anyone who is buying a home. We plan to stay in this home for a long time, but Steve would be our choice if we needed to buy again.
Hands down the best realtor
Hands down the best realtor we have ever done business with by a large margin. The guy is downright amazing. He earned every cent of his commission and then some. I would highly recommend him to any prospective home buyer.
Steve made the the relocation go better than we thought possible
We moved to Arkansas from Ohio and Steve made the the relocation go better than we thought possible. After he helped us find a beautiful home we went back to Ohio and Steve took care of everything else. What a huge relief to have someone who would take care of everything when you are not there. All we had to do was close on our house and pack up and move down. He answered every question promptly and clearly. He helped us with get utilities in our name, find a bank, and an insurance agent. Steve represented us very well in finding, buying and moving into our new home.
We have never seen anyone provide the level of service that Steve did
We are from Dallas and have dealt with realtors in the past and we have never seen anyone provide the level of service that Steve did.
1) Extremely prompt for all responses
3) Took personal time to make sure all repairs were completed
4) Push loan and title company to stay on schedule.
I would recommend Steve for any line of work because his dedication is 100%.
If someone in NW Arkansas needs a realtor, this is the MAN!!
We know that Steve is just a call away
Steve represents the height of patience , for every little specifictaion that we had ..he patiently noted down things and ensured that we landed up in the perfect house that had everything little spec we required. He made sure that we are not hurrying up with any decisions and strived hard to get us into the place that would make us happy with no compromises made. At various instances where the builder went wrong, He made sure that it was corrected back to what was specified. Steve in course of time became such a good friend to rely on. He even extended hand to help after we closed on the house for any house related work, he spent time to get them completed as he understood our hectic schedule. One wonderful thing that i enjoy thoroughly in the house in the big sink that was a result of Steve ensuring that we got the right one put in though the builders did not initially install them..He got us a very good deal on the house , specifying various additional things that we enjoy now and those that are an add on to the house. I would definitely recommend Stve to all my friends and I already am… Steve sepnt so much of time to help us locate the right place and guided us throughout, patiently. We finally have a lovely home for which we thank Steve for all the negotiations and hard work. Steve is more a friend now .. and we are glad in all ways. We know that Steve is just a call away if we have any questions or help regarding the house …
He has a great attention for detail
Steve made our experience looking for a home enjoyable. He is very responsive, knowledgeable and patient! He has a great attention for detail and insures that the process goes as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone. My daughters and wife loved him as well.
Steve was very quick to respond to phone calls and emails
Steve was very quick to respond to phone calls and emails, and very prompt in getting paperwork together. He helped us understand the homebuying process, was helpful in pointing out a variety of things about our home (good and bad…things that would or might not pass inspection and the like). I really felt like he wanted the best for us as homebuyers and was not just out to make some money. We met with him to propose an offer on a house and were closing on the house within 29 days!!! He was great and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
This guy is a Master of Real Estate!!!
We tried so many real estate agents for over a year trying to get help buying a home. We were always dissappointed. We were about to give up on our dream home!
In contrast, we were immediately impressed with the responsiveness, knowledge and skills with Steven Atwell.
He always returned our calls, emails, and text. One night, we exchanged texts until midnight. He knew everything about the area such as topography, untilities, taxes, time to commute and even the size of fish in each area of the lake. When we finally found the a house, it had many “negotiation and administrative” complications. Thanks to his experience and skills, he worked through everything for us, and now we are living in the home of our dreams!!!!!
This guy is a Master of REal Estate!!!
Listened to what we were looking for
Listened to what we were looking for and streamlined the search for the best use of our limited time. Assisted us in finding a lender that was also great to work with.
We love our new home!
Steve was an excellent agent. He went above and beyond all expectations to help me find the perfect home for me and my daughter. He was very honest and was always very upfront with me on everything from explanation on the financial details, home buying process, and the paperwork leading up to the closing process. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is thinking of buying or selling a property. First time buyers, such as myself, will be very pleased with the knowledge and professionalism of Steve!
Thanks again Steve!
We love our new home!
Steven is an exceptional agent
Steven is an exceptional agent. He knows the area very well, he understands the business aspects about buying a home, and he is always available. We were highly impressed with his professionalism and willingness to help us with our needs.
I would and do tell everyone to call him for all of their needs in real estate
steven was friendly and helpful and kept me informed through the hole process. I would and do tell everyone to call him for all of their needs in real estate. thanks steven
Steve is an honest, straightforward guy
Updated from previous reviews/experiences with Steve in 2006 and 2011…
We now have five great experiences with Steve Atwell.
In early 2013, Steve expertly negotiated the sale of a rental property for us for a healthy return on profit. He then found two fantastic replacement properties in Bentonville for us.
How much faith and trust do we have in Steve? We’ve now bought four properties, and sold one, without setting foot in the state of Arkansas. He has handled it all.
He worked hard for us. Like I mentioned before, he’s honest, straightforward, is results-driven, and has a steady pulse on the NW Arkansas market. Regarding banks/inspections/etc…I just ask him who to talk to, and I get the best rate.
I will continue to do business with Steve Atwell.
Second experience with Steve Atwell. Bought house in 2006 and 2011 with his expert guidance. He is top-notch in all areas.
Has great knowledge of NW Arkansas. He made sure that all processes went smoothly and quickly. Provided expert referrals for inspections, repair, etc.
Extremely responsive to my emails. Don’t know if the guy ever sleeps! Negotiation skills were very smooth.
Last, but not least, Steve is an honest, straightforward guy. He tells you like it is.
Steven was very informative and helpful
Having recently relocated to the area, Steven was very informative and helpful as we searched for our new home. He really listened to what I was looking for, answered any and all questions I had and most importantly was willing to work around my schedule as a mom of 3. Steven was very knowledgable about the area and was able to add insight about things we may not of thought to ask about. Within a week of looking, we found the perfect home for our family. As a buyers agent, Steven was extremely helpful during the neogations. He looked out for our best interest. I would definately recommend Steven to anyone who is looking to buy a new house.
He is always there to try to help
Steve helped us buy our first new house. He is very professional, hard working, and more important he knows this area very well. If you are not sure what is out there, like we started, he is definitely the one you want to work with.
Our house is new house. He basically started from the floor plan to the final closing day, anytime you want to ask him, he is always there to try to help. I would highly recommend working with him and get your dreaming house!
Thanks again, Steve, for all that you do
In relocating from a small rural Texas community to the larger NW Arkansas area, we were uncertain of how to select a Realtor. After stumbling across the “Buyer’s First Realty” web page and contacting Steve, the wheels were in motion. Using Steve as our Buyer’s Agent was the best decision that we made in finding our new home. He was always available, very patient, knowledgeable of the area, skilled in providing all property information electronically, well-equipped for rapid e-filing of paperwork and a pleasure to spend time with. He even went the “extra mile” one evening, attending a town planning commission meeting to make sure an issue with our property was handled properly. Thanks again, Steve, for all that you do to help folks in their quest for a new home!
Steve is different
I’ve purchased two properties with Steve as my buyers agent. I could not be happier with Steve. I’ve dealt with several real estate agents in my life, and aside from Steve, they all had similar traits. They didn’t return my phone calls, they told me what I wanted to hear to get a sale locked up as soon as possible, and they never had “time” to do their job to my satisfaction.
Steve is different. Steve ALWAYS returns my phone calls in the same day. He knows the market and gives intelligent, truthful and factual information on the properties we have viewed. He never pressures me into making a decision, and he always has time to walk me through the decision making process.
Finding a good real estate agent is hard to come by. This is a good one…
Steve was amazing
Steve was amazing in his efforts to assist us in finding the perect home. He used his excellent knowledge of the area and his knowledge of home construction to advise us wisely on houses and areas to avoid as well as areas of best opportunity. He was extraordinarily responsive. My parents moved here recently and I recommended they also use Steve; I would not have done this without total confidence in him. Just excellent customer service like you rarely see any more!
Steven is a fabulous agent
Steven is a fabulous agent. I was new to the area and had no idea where I wanted to live. He took what little information I was able to give him about the type of place I wanted and he found me the perfect house!! He even met me me one day after it snowed and it was really cold! That was the day I found my house!! He walked me through the financing process. He sent to a wonderful loan officer who left no stone unturned to get me the perfect loan at a great rate!!! Steven even met the inspector in my absence, spent 3 hours with him, and then called and gave me a detailed report!! I never doubted that he had MY best interest at heart. Not his, not the sellers, but MINE! Steven made it all about me! I have recommended him to family and friends and will do so as long as he sells houses!!
