Professional, Honest, Accessible, Prompt and Real. This is our perception of Steve Wilkins.
Since day one, Steve proved to us that he has in-depth knowledge of the local market, an ability to listen attentively to our expectations and concerns, and the integrity to admit that sometimes he could not answer all our questions right away. That was very honest of him (a very rare trait among agents), and that is one of the reasons we stayed with him for our next transaction. Steve first helped us sell a house, and then buy one. We know that we showered him with many questions. We were very impressed with how promptly he got back to us with the answers.
We found Steve to be very accessible. Sometimes we wondered if he ever slept. From early morning hours to late at night, we could count on Steve to get back to us promptly. He made us feel like we were his only clients. While in our presence, Steve never picked up his phone from his office or another client or even his wife. At that moment, 100% of his attention was on us.
There were long hours searching for a perfect house in a perfect location, numerous private viewings and open houses. On top of it all, was our ever-growing criteria list and Steve was by our side the whole time. This insanely hot real estate market quickly taught us that speed and decisiveness were key to grabbing a good property. Sometimes we felt like we were playing on the stock market and Steve was our stock broker: very quick to act and react.
Steve is not going to dazzle you with an expensive, shiny car or an Armani suit. He will not promise you whatever you want to hear. You certainly will not hear him brag about himself and what an amazing agent he is. Steve felt real to us. He earned his commission honestly by helping us go through the craze and headaches of selling and buying a property. That is the help that he promised us on day one, and that is exactly what he delivered.
As for the money we received from the sale and the price we paid when we bought, let's just say we are very pleased on both counts. Steve proved to be an excellent advisor and a very good negotiator. We came close to accepting some lower offers on our sale, but on Steve's advice we gave him more time to negotiate better offers. As nerve-wracking as it was, it paid off and we are glad we listened. His negotiating skills came to the fore when we bought our next house. This time, as the buying agent, he was instrumental in timing and presenting our offer.
We recommend Steve Wilkins very highly to anyone who is serious about selling or buying a property. We know, that when time comes, we will be contacting Steve again.
