  • Steve’s method of selling houses works exceedingly well. Our house sold in less than three hours on the market at above asking price, After moving to Florida and having physically visited almost 20 houses and looked at least 40 odd more on the internet, I cannot stress enough the importance of Steve’s insistence on staging, good painting, using a professional photographer and improving the tiniest detail of one’s home. It will in my opinion guarantee excellent results. We saw too many homes which did not meet those standards and we duly passed them over.

  • It is clear how much Steve cares about his clients and his profession. He was always available and went out of his way to perform with excellence. He has attention to detail and explains everything well.”

    - Katherine T, Alexandria, VA

  • Steve had a masterful approach of researching the market, determining the right position, creating the perfect feel (key!), designing a critical marketing plan, and seamlessly negotiating on our behalf. All of this made us stand out in the market, which made all the difference. The word that comes to mind is excellent and we would definitely recommend Steve.

    - Andy and Kim, Ashburn, VA

  • He really works tirelessly and consistently with his clients to meet their needs. Without him, my condo would probably still be sitting on the market.

    - Sarita J, Falls Church, VA

  • Accessible, action oriented, got things done. Focused on meeting my needs and getting the house sold. I always knew you were looking out for my best interests.
