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.
