ClientTestimonials

 

I have the same goals for every Client I work with:

I take great care to provide a Real Estate experience nothing short of exceptional. After completing a transaction together, I seek to have my Clients feel assured there is no need to work with another Real Estate advisor. As their personal Trusted Advisor and real estate information source, my Clients are confident they can count on me to not only deliver a professional level of service to them, but also to their family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors for many years to come.



It's time you had the Best Real Estate experience of your life.™ 

 

“We made a great connection with Steve and felt that he was going to be the perfect match for our needs. For our first time selling a home he did great making us feel comfy. We will be sure to tell anyone selling a home or buying a home to call him up! We received a postcard in the mail that stated Steve sold a condo in our complex for a really high price. We were in the market to sell as well so I called him up. Upon our first meeting we told him that we wanted TOP$ so he told us what we needed to do to make it for sell ready and a deadline. We did all that he suggested and after one day on the market had high interest. We received two offers and as we asked it was TOP$; the highest sold Condo in our complex ever. Thanks Steve for the Great Job!!”

--Danny & Amy Pardini, Fremont

 

“The service provided by Steven Anthony Realty was excellent - very professional and friendly at the same time. Real estate transactions can be very daunting. Steve make it less stressful with his detailed explanations, suggestions, attention to details, extra effort to troubleshoot when needed, regular mail and text updates, friendly nature and a great sense of humor. This is the second time working with Steve after getting an amazing service while buying our first home; he was the natural choice as a Realtor when I decided to sell the house. Once again, he guided me through the entire process like an expert profession and a great friend. He made sure that the house looks its best for showings (even did odd maintenance jobs to help under my difficult personal circumstances), put a lot of effort in solving a HOA issue that was interrupting the sale, stayed optimistic when things were not going our way, and finally got the house sold at a great price. Working with Steve is like having a fun, smart, and compassionate friend on your team. Thanks Steve!"

-- Purbasha Rajeesh, San Ramon  

 

“My overall experience was good. Steven was very prompt and transparent while communicating and fullfilling any of my needs throughout my house purchase process. Steve is a knowledgeable real estate professional. His prompt and readiness to work as per client need is truly appreciable. His real estate market understanding and professionalism was definitely a BIG plus point while buying my property. Steve always kept me informed and up to date though out my property transaction.”"

-- Kundan Krishna, Fremont

 

“Steve was a true professional and responsive to many foreseen & unforeseen challenges. For instance, when an offer was cancelled Steve was quick to reestablish a back-up buyer. His suggestions to be transparent with home disclosures paid off, which also speaks to the integrity he carries in his business. Steve is an amazing Realtor and truly went out of his way to ensure we could maximize our selling potential. He is highly knowledgeable about the Fremont area and has a good sense of determining value in a home. Steve also went above and beyond in assisting me in preparing my home for open house(s) to which I’m very grateful. Despite several obstacles Steve was consistent in his efforts to seek out the right buyer and offered his insights when began to have doubts. Steve is honest, open and a great communicator; all of which are traits I wanted in my Realtor. Thank you again Steve!”

-- Darren Batara, Fremont

 

“Our experience with Steve was fun and he made us feel like we were his close friends and shared everything about home buying. Steve was open minded, professional, looked into every house we showed interest in, and always returned with details. He always looked for what was best for us. Now, we wouldn’t be in a house today if it wasn’t for Steve’s hard and fast work. We had been searching since Jan (strong sellers’ market) and had created a custom search just for us and it found a property that was relisted. Steve called the Agent and found out the Sellers would accept the first offer to arrive. Steve then jumped into action preparing a complete offer we electronically signed and submitted late that night - we were the first to submit! That shows how fast Steve works with the use of modern technology and sacrifices part of his personal life to his clients regardless of day, night or weekends! We highly recommend Steve to anybody interested in real estate as a first time buyer or second; really does not matter; Steve has a very good knowledge of what’s happening out there.”

-- Mohammed & Naaheda Ishaque, Hayward

  

I definitely recommend my friends to contact Steven Anthony Realty if they need Real Estate assistance. This was my first purchase of a house (new builder home). I did not know any of the policies and details of buying. Steve was very patient and explained all the steps to me and I learned a lot during the transaction and process. I really thank Steve for the great help."

-- Andrew Wang, Livermore

 

 “Steven Anthony Realty was very professional ...will have every referral I can give ... went above and beyond the call of duty."

-- Joel Sylvia, San Lorenzo

 

“Steve tirelessly slugged through up to 16 houses in a day in our search for our first home. He is friendly, personal, and professional. He worked within our monetary limits, worked with us to find out what type of house we were looking for, and gave us realistic expectations. He is well informed and up to date on the home purchasing process. He was on top of things, especially during escrow, working late into the night to make sure the i’s were dotted and the t’s were crossed. He successfully completed our very long and drawn out short sale process. We worked with one of the brokers that he recommended. They worked together like a well-oiled machine to get the deal done. He provided us a timeline and patiently and clearly explained the steps involved. We always knew what to expect next. He kept us informed of how things were progressing during the entire process. When we had questions, he responded quickly and thoroughly with an email or a phone call, sometimes answering the same question more than once. And on the rare occasion that he didn’t know the answer he did the research to find it. In conclusion, we will be coming back to Steve for all our future Realtor needs.”

-- Chris & Colleen Canguragan, Hayward

  

“In my view Steven Anthony Realty embodies the description of a Realtor, it’s not about just closing a home for him but it’s about protecting his client in acquiring one of the most valuable assets – a home! I am ever so grateful. I am comfortable sending my family and friends to Steven because I know they are in trusted hands.”

-- Phillipa Sibanda & Brian Magodo, Tracy

 

“Steven is very details oriented. He found and fixed a small hole in our contract, which can cause big loss to us. He scrutinized every document we sign. He is always with us, protecting us and not afraid to fight for us. Steven is very knowledgeable with house. He teaches us lots of useful information. We feel that he treats us like he treats his own family. We would like to recommend Steven.”

-- Wei & Yewei, Fremont

 

“Steve is knowledgeable, confident, and trustworthy.”

-- Kiran & Bhavana Makarla/Canakapalli, Dublin 

 

“Steve, you’ve been a tremendous help with selling the house and with making our move a success. As you know, you generated so much interest in our house that we not only got market value despite low comps, but we sold the house well above market value in one week. Our selling situation required really smart positioning so we occasionally questioned your somewhat counterintuitive recommendations, but we ultimately trusted you and it paid off beyond our hopes! Most of all, you are a good man who takes care of his clients. We’re so grateful that we chose you to represent us in the sale of our house and we’re only sad we met you on our way out of the Bay Area. We used one of the top Realtors in Tucson, Arizona, in buying our new house, but we agreed that he didn’t come close to comparing with you on any front. You’re the best!”

-- Alex & Sandy Byron, Fremont 

 

“Outstanding! Excellent! Steve was there every step of the way. I always felt secure with the advice suggested. Steve's experience and knowledge made every decision that much easier to make.

 “Steve goes the extra mile to get the customer what he/she needs to make accurate decisions. Steve made sure all the details were focused on with importance. Our purchase was a long drawn-out process that Steve prepared us for right out of the gate.

-- Matthew & Michelle Terra, Escalon 

 

 “Absolutely incredible level of service. We were extremely lucky to have Steve as our Buyer’s Agent. The level of service is extraordinary. Steve is incredibly knowledgeable, always prepared for meetings, punctual and extremely responsive. We felt Steve was protecting our interests throughout the whole process. He absolutely spoiled us with his attention. We can go on and on about our perfect experience with Steve, but just wanted to say if you are looking for your Real Estate Agent LOOK NO FURTHER!”

-- Sergey & Kate Kashperskiy, San Ramon 

 

 “We will definitely recommend Steve to our friends and family. Steve is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the home buying process. He gave detailed explanations and valuable suggestions at every step, including the loan process and home inspection. We never felt rushed into doing things or pressured into buying any particular property. He was very patient and focused on finding the right house for us. Watching Steve go through the pros and cons of a house, it seemed like he was buying his own house....He is extremely organized and pays attention to every detail. He kept us updated and gave clear and precise explanations of all paperwork. We were also very impressed by his punctuality and friendly behavior with everyone. These qualities made the entire process pleasant for everyone involved in the transaction. When we chose Steve, we already had high expectations based on his extremely knowledgeable and detailed answers... While working with us, he exceeded our expectations. Thanks Steve!
