Stephen Quickly Identified Our Needs and Found Us the PERFECT House!

We were nervous as we embarked on the journey to purchase our first home, but Stephen informatively guided us through the process.  Stephen maintained constant communication ensuring there were no surprises.  He quickly identified our needs and found us the perfect first place!  Stephen was candid and open as our home buying guide and most importantly, we could tell he was on our side as some intense negotiations played out with the sellers.  We look forward to working with him again in the future when we’re ready for home #2!

He was Awesome to Work with and Did an Awesome Job!

I’ve known Stephen for 20+ years and watched a number of my friends purchase homes with him. When it came time for us to purchase, Stephen was the first call I made. Bottom line, he was awesome to work with and did an awesome job. He explained the purchase process and everything involved and answered our many questions. He was easily reachable via txt, email or phone, night or day, weekday or weekend. When it came time to put in an offer, he was calm, laid out all the facts, and went over all the details with us. Negotiations, counteroffers, and final closing were no different, he handled them all like the pro that he is. We’re extremely happy with our purchase and even happier that we chose Stephen.

His Vast Experience was Evident from Our First Conversation.

I’ve worked with Stephen on three separate transactions over the past three years, as both a buyer and seller. His vast experience was evident from our first conversation. He is responsive, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable of the Puget Sound market. I have recommended Stephen to multiple friends and colleagues looking to get into the market, and will continue to do so.

Give this guy a call, I promise you won’t regret it!
