Testimonials

“In a crowded and competitive real estate agent market,Steve Adams sets himself apart with integrity, professionalism and results. Steve represented me on the sale of my previous residence and the purchase of my current home. He was able to locate and negotiate attractive terms on the house my wife and I were dreaming of, notwithstanding the current state of the residential market. He then found a buyer for my previous residence three days after launching the listing and marketing campaign. We closed approximately six weeks later. I attribute the solid results to Steve’ counsel and expertise. My wife and I are extremely satisfied with Steve’s performance, and we would highly recommend him to anyone without reservation.”

"Steve was beyond helpful! I recently moved from California to Texas and decided to invest in a home. Not having family near me or close friends to help me through the process, I was fortunate to have Steve as a recommendation. Due to my position, I had a limited amount of time to view homes. Steve did what was more than accommodating for me and did not rush the process. Steve did everything from connecting me with a great lender to assisting with utility recommendations. He's honesty while viewing homes made the experience that more exciting. I really felt as though I had a best friend coming along and giving me honest feedback."

Steve, It’s now a week after we closed on our home sale

We wish to express our heartfelt appreciation and thanks for the totally professional sales efforts by you. From the early pre-listing analysis to the final signing of the closing documents you have made it happen. The sales brochure you prepared was wonderful. It attracted interest and imparted knowledge.

The marketing was superb. The Realtors Preview was totally positive and successful. We asked for and got a top price for the home and your efforts helped greatly.

We can eagerly and heartily recommend you to anyone who needs a Realtor.  Thanks again for your help.

Very Truly Yours, Denise & Ray Quigley

Steve Adams is SPOT on when it comes to working and negotiating a real estate deal! I am a very ‘hands-on’ person but with Steve I was rest assured he was on the case! His responsiveness was also very impressive. If I was up at 10pm at night and sent him a question or anything along those lines I generally had a response within minutes! That went a LONG way with me!

If we ever work another deal, Steve Adams, will be the first person I call!

Steve & Jenny Broussard

Steve,
As we near the date for getting the keys to our new house I write to thank you for being so professional and helpful in leading us to the happy purchase. With many career related moves we have been through the house hunting process many times. You definitely rank among the best of realtors who guided us. You always listened, quickly sensed our preferences and only showed us houses with a potential fit. In our several visits to Austin for house hunting you ensured very productive time. We particularly appreciated your patience and comfortable working style. We never felt pressured but we always felt well informed and thankful for your consistent prompt follow-up on anything requiring clarification.

Thanks again for your guidance in making our search successful. We are looking forward to our new home in Austin.

Jim and Rita Williams

“I can’t recommend my realtor, Steve, enough. Not only did he assist me in selling a home in a “hard to sell” neighborhood (and quickly, I might add), but he assisted me in the purchase of a home that is just perfect for me. Steve is very professional yet very personable which made this tedious and sometimes stressful situation less so. He always remained calm which had a calming effect on me. A couple of things that I really appreciated about working with him were his responsiveness to my calls and patience with my questions. I hope I don’t go through this again for a very long time, but if I do, I will definitely call on Steve again.”

Monday Morning Coffee July 17

By Steve Adams | July 17, 2017

The summer of 2017 is living up to expectations. Despite, or maybe because of increases in mortgage rates, home buyers are looking at homes in record numbers.  Before statistics ever come out, real estate professionals can tell how strong home sales will be in a given time period by the activity in the market. Some examples include open house traffic, buyers looking at new model homes, and agents showing homes to buyers.  All of these activity based measurements are strong according to real estate agents and new homes agents in the market. The result will most certainly be positive statistics when they are available in 60-90 days. And Here’s Your Monday Morning Coffee… Dogs really are perfect soldiers. They are brave and smart; they can smell through walls, see in the dark, and eat Army rations without complaint. -Susan Orlean In 1966, a German Shepherd dog named Nemo and his handler, Airman Second Class Robert Thorneburg, both survived gunshot wounds while fighting in Vietnam.  A bullet hit Nemo in the muzzle, but the brave dog stayed strong and charged 4 gunmen, giving Thorneburg, who was shot in the shoulder, enough time to call for reinforcements.  Thorneburg and Nemo both survived, but Nemo’s right eye had to be removed.  Nemo was sent back to Lackland Air Force Base…

Monday Morning Coffee – July 10

By Steve Adams | July 10, 2017

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the JOLTS (job openings and labor turnover rates) report. Fed Chair Yellen has described this data as being very useful in evaluating current labor market conditions.  It revealed that job openings rose to a record high level and that the quits rate held steady at an elevated level of 2.1%. Both readings are viewed as signs of a strong labor market. A high quits rate is viewed as a signal of strength because workers are more likely to leave their jobs willingly when they are confident about their ability to get another one. This is of course good new for real estate… home owners and purchasers can both feel confident because the labor market is closely tied to the housing market. And Here’s Your Monday Morning Coffee… Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. ~ Peter Drucker John Maxwell is one of the most prolific authors regarding the subject of leadership. He says there are 3 characteristics necessary to be a good leader: 1.
