“I don’t think I have ever worked with such a patient, knowledgeable and professional REALTOR®! Stephen showed me numerous properties before I decided on my forever home. Through the entire 7 month process, he helped me stay focused on finding ‘just the right house,’ helping me understand costs, moving expenses, potential improvements to infrastructure and the impact on assessed value that is influenced by the various neighborhoods around our city. Stephen was prompt in his responses to my questions and incredibly accommodating showing me properties, often times, as soon as houses were first listed on the market. I highly recommend Stephen for a residential, commercial or vacation property sale or purchase.”

“Stephen sold my primary home and rental property. He got me the price I wanted. He then helped with finding movers, storage, and a rental for myself. This agent was on time, dressed sharp, a total pro.”

“Stephen is a fantastic REALTOR®! I give him my highest recommendation. My husband and I spent over 8 months looking at a variety of houses all over the greater Rochester region. Stephen came to every appointment with us and gave us great advice along the way. One Sunday we went from Marion to Livonia to Canandaigua looking at different houses, and he had a smile on his face the whole time. When we decided none were the one for us, he offered encouragement that we would find ‘the one’ soon. He was very helpful, knowledgeable, patient, sincere, honest and hard-working through the whole process – not to mention a pleasure to work with. He really wanted us to find the perfect house for us and didn’t rush us into anything. When it came time to go through the buying process, I probably would’ve given up if it wasn’t for Stephen. He kept us aware of everything as it was happening, constantly followed up with all parties involved, and assured us it would all be worth it in the end. Because of Stephen, we are now living in the perfect house for us, and we couldn’t be happier with the house or him.”
