We were introduced to Stephen by another client and mutual friend. As soon as we started working with him we understood why he has such a great reputation. We were first-time homebuyers: daunted by the process and unsure of where to start. Stephen got to know us personally, and worked with us to find common ground in our list(s) of priorities. He quickly narrowed our search to areas of the city and properties that fully met our requirements. Stephen never said never, but was realistic, candid, and optimistic about our prospects to find the right home –and he did! After showing us intriguing prospects, we circled back and bought the first condo he showed us. Stephen also referred a terrific team of people –our mortgage broker and lawyer– that exceeded our expectations while working swiftly and diligently to close on time, despite a relative lack of organization the other side of the table. Steve is a friend, a confidant, and a great business partner.
