Stephan proved to be a very professional yet an aggressive advocate for us in both the selling and buying process. After two failed attempts with other agents on the sale, Stephan generated qualified leads with his network of local contacts and extensive knowledge of the local market. When it came time to buy, Stephan helped us quickly focus on the right property, and formulated a negotiation strategy that worked well. The negotiation itself was smooth, yet we were able to secure a very reasonable price. This happened because Stephan came in with facts about the market, the area, the agent, and the property that started the negotiations off on the right path. The seller’s expectations were set and then we negotiated down from there. The result was dramatic – we walked into our new house with 10s of thousands of dollars of instant equity before factoring the down-payment, even in the worst economic environment in housing in generations. We were impressed that we ended up faring so well and buy with so much going against us.
After having dealt with other agents and interviewing countless dozens, Stephan’s professionalism and results are in a league of their own in this market.
Bought our first house with Stephen´s help last summer
Stephen did a great job helping us negotiate down to a price we could afford on our first home. He made a big effort to help us understand how everything worked and was very prompt about returning emails and phone calls. He was our trusted advisor. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.
My wife and I got to know Stephen as a well prepared and diligent Realtor, who had our best interest in mind. He was very detailed explaining the buying process and the benefits of several geographic areas that would make for a good investment and a safe home for my daughter. Stephen has shown great knowledge of the local market, and negotiated a price that gave us almost immediate equity. We felt that Stephen was working in our best interest at all times. He was in control of the entire process, communicated well, didn’t mind to go out of his way, and made the purchasing process enjoyable. I strongly recommend Stephen.
Olga and I want to give you our most heartfelt thanks for the services you gave in selling our home. The home, which had languished on the market for a year with another agent with little activity, sold in two months thanks to your thorough research and ability to properly position the home in today’s difficult housing market.
You certainly are the most effective, well prepared real estate professional I have used in 11 corporate relocations over my 29 year career.
We would certainly recommend your services to any and all who wish to sell or buy a home.
We are from out of town and needed some guidance. Stephan was great. He spent the time needed and was very knowledgeable.
I am an out-of-state investor. So finding a trustworthy local Realtor is crucial. When I first started looking into the Charlotte market, a friend of mine who has had a good experience with Stephan introduced him to me. It was not easy in the beginning to work together as we'd never met. But Stephan soon gained my trust through diligent communication and honest work and input. Stephan turned out to be very effective and resourceful when looking for properties for me. He ended up securing two properties for me, and arranged for financing and closing so that the process was painless for me. I then met Stephan in person twice after each purchase, and I was more than happy with what he had found me. Stephan also took the time showed me and my family around town when we visited. We were very happy to finally meet him, and liked his warm and fun personality a lot. I would highly recommend Stephan's service.
