I am a Licensed Residential REALTOR with RE/MAX Results focused on helping people purchase or sell homes. Even though my primary focus is specializing in older, character homes in Minneapolis and St. Paul, I can help you with your real estate needs around the Twin Cities metro area.
My background in technology makes me unique in helping you find your home. Technology can be a great tool in the home search process, whether it's electronic signatures, or online map search, or the latest in mobile searching, or web technology.
I am passionate about homeownership and especially love to help first time home buyers. Just seeing how excited they get when they view homes is highly rewarding. Negotiating is one of my strong suits. My father had a nickname of "Cut them in half Hong" and I think I got many of my negotiation skills from him.
I also value honesty and integrity and a transparant process, and I know many people will say that, but you can hear it from my past clients. View the testimonials on trulia.com or other websites and you'll see that they believe in me.
I also feel the strong need to give back to the community. I have given countless hours of volunteer time to many organizations over the years, whether it's 15 years with Habitat for Humanity, 13 years with the Twin Cities Community Gospel Choir, or the after-school technology club for inner-city kids. I currently am the President of the Board for the TCC Gospel Choir as well. In addition to all this, I support Children's Miracle Network, donating a portion of every closing to this worthy cause.
I know that there are many agents out there, but you've already found one right here that cares about each client, can put high technology to work for you, is a strong negotiator, and has a strong company standing behind me.

|Steve is an exellent realtor. He knows areas, home quality, home value, and is very in touch with the market. He can give you pluses and minuses of a house, and has a good knowledge of basic home repair and remodeling ball park estimates or can connect you with some one who does. Most of all he is a realator that will help you find and buy your house with an informed decision, not a house he wants to sell you. He was very low pressure. Your interests come first. He was also helpful in multiplt offers. I won both offers, though the first time I wound up declining on the house after further review.
|We were very indecisive first time homebuyers who started out knowing very little about home buying, and even what we thought we had learned from the millions of pages of the internet were not always as helpful as Steven was. He is very honest, quick to respond (especially if you like working via e-mail and text, which is all I could do!), very accommodating (willing to meet on my timelines, for example I saw an open house pop up over a lunch hour and he was able to meet me!) and we never felt pressured or uncomfortable. He knows the MPLS/St. Louis Park area very well. He has purchased/renovated several houses in the Minneapolis area himself, so he is really knowledgeable when it comes to house potential and especially during the inspection process. I would for sure buy or sell a home with Steve in the future and would recommend him highly.
|I couldn't be happier with this experience. Steven made this transaction flawless, he had great advice for me being an first time home buyer and if i was rich i would be buying houses with his help monthly. I will 100% work him if i ever buy another house.
