Highly likely to recommend

Like everyone else has mentioned, Steve is a great communicator. He showed us a house and you can tell he wants you to be happy, not just sell the house.

Wonderful experience with Steven and Maile!

Wonderful experience with Steven and Maile! They were very professional and knowledgeable. I was referred to them from a friend, and now I would most definitely recommend them to anyone. They are superb communicators, very experienced in San Diego real estate and loan procedures, and were able to negotiate everything I wanted. After speaking with many people, I can strongly say that my experience was made easier and smoother because Steven and Maile are very skilled at their jobs. I would undoubtedly use them again if needed. Thank you so much, Steven and Maile!!

Highly likely to recommend

Steven worked both sides of our selling and buying, also supported finance options for our purchase. He was helpful in us identifying a purchase of our new home and guided us through the sale of our prior home. Worked behind the scenes well with other agents and escrow to keep things moving forward.

Communication is flawless

Steven and his team were excellent to work with on both the real estate side and the mortgage side. Steven’s communication is flawless! He responds immediately, anytime of the day even on weekends, in all forms of communication. This was my first home purchase and Steven was able to help make it as smooth as possible. Every step of the way he made sure that we were on track with the timeline and having all the appropriate steps completed. He is fast yet thorough, and due to his experience and ability to explain things in simplified terms you feel confident nothing is incomplete or being overlooked. I feel so fortunate to have worked with Steven and his team because they were able to take all the bumps and hiccups (on my end) in stride and still manage to ride it through until the end. I now own the house that I cannot believe is really mine – a true gem!! I very highly recommend Steven and his team! Thanks, Steven and team!! I greatly appreciate everything!

Courteous and friendly

With the passing of my father, selling his house was the last thing I wanted to do. Steve was courteous and friendly and made it an smooth and easy process. With Steve’s help we sold the house for more then I anticipated and he got us more then the asking price. I would definitely recommend Steve to a friend.

Professional and Caring

Steven was professional and Caring for my concerns and answered all my questions. He also questioned me to learn my desires and concerns about the selling process. He was honest and truthful. Expedited the process quickly but without hastiness. Working Together we met all deadlines from the escrow company.

Quick and efficient!!

Thank you Steven, I wanted you to know that this is my 3rd refinance in 24 years and I have never experienced such great service like I have from you and your team. They are quick and efficient and made this process so easy I still can’t believe it. If I would have known it was going to be this painless I would have done this along time of ago but my previous experiences were not good. Thank you so much!!!!

I’ve told so many other people how impressed I’ve been with you

“Good morning, Steve:
I’m not sure if we’ve ever met, in person, but I have been the notary on quite a few of your loans. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how impressed I’ve been by your relationship with your clients. Loyalty is a rare commodity in our business and you have the most loyal clients I have ever met. Which tells me that you give excellent service, on a regular basis. Because of that, I have provided several people with your name, knowing that you would probably provide them with the same great service.
Anyway, that’s it. I’ve told so many other people how impressed I’ve been with you, I figured I should take a moment to tell you, too!”

I will always remember what you have done for me, thank you

I wanted to take this time to extend my heartfelt thanks for all the hard and miraculous work you did for me and my children! It is because of you that my home is safe and the home that my children have grown up in remains intact.After spending the last year trying to find a bank or lender to refinance my home loan for me was becoming increasingly futile and hopeless as I needed to get my ex-spouse off of title and the loan because of a court order. I thought I was going to lose my children’s birth home. I was at my wit’s end and very worried and distraught.

Fast forward to two weeks ago, I was researching mortgage brokers online and came across your website and liked what I saw, so I contacted you. You were very professional and responsive over the phone. When we met the second time (which was 24 hours after the first time), you found me in a state of despair as I needed to get a quick hard money loan thanks to my ex-spouse’s foreclosure on his property and traditional banks would not refinance with me for another six months when the foreclosure would drop off my credit history.

I had been crying of which you commented on and asked me to tell you why. I told you I would lose the house unless I refinanced it in 48 hours. I watched you leap into action calling forth a host of players to include a title rep, an escrow rep, a notary and others who all played an important part in completing this refinance in 24 hours. I understand that all of you worked overnight as well on it so that the next day which was a Friday, you had all the loan documents prepared and I was able to sign on that day.

Fast forward to the following Monday of my court hearing, you were so gracious, professional , and kind to show up to my court hearing and even field a barrage of questions from my ex-spouse’s attorney who was trying to sabotage all efforts of letting this refinance go through. It is because of all the work of you, my great attorney, Robin Montes, and your eloquent testimony that the Judge ruled in our favor and so I was able to keep my home.

Words cannot ever express how much gratitude I have for all of you and for your heroic efforts to perform a miracle that took a total of 24 hours! Even my attorney was new to the case and yet, all of you rallied together beautifully to help me and my children stay in our home. Amazingly, prior to that, we were all strangers to each other. All of you reinforce my belief in the human spirit and that there are wonderful people out there who will help a stranger in a time of need simply because they care. I will always remember what you have done for me, thank you.
Warm regards,
