Simply put, we had an outstanding experience through the entire process from pre-listing through closing!
Steve is extremely attentive to the needs of his clients, but also realistic when he needs to be. His responsiveness was more than impressive, and when combined with his market knowledge and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty, you quickly conclude that you made the best choice possible.
On top of everything else, he’s a great guy, fun to work , and holds the highest standards of honesty and integrity you will find.
As a result, we had a contact on our home in eight days. Need I say more…
Thank you again Steve! You’re the best!!!

Steve did a truly great job for us in selling our home. It has been a real pleasure to work with a knowledgeable expert like Steve. Every single bit of advice he gave us along the way was spot-on. We will ask Steve to help us again in the future, should the need arise, and we’ll highly recommend him to others Steve rises above most realtors, in my opinion, because you feel confident that he represents you 110%. He is knowledgeable, communicative, and results driven. As buyers, Steve has warned us about precarious situations, like if a greenbelt behind a prospective house is likely to be developed in the future or If it will likely take awhile to resell due to a busy thoroughfare behind a backyard. In addition to representing us as buyers, he has given us his advice as sellers at the same time, such as enhancing the display of our home to make it look more attractive. He’s very accessible when you need him and responds within minutes when he is not reachable. One can wait all day and beyond for an informed answer to a question from other realtors but Steve confers with his peers and gets back to you quickly. He keeps abreast of the real estate market and mortgage rate trends along with costs for taxes, the social atmosphere of an area, and quality of schools. He informs you about an area such as proximity of conveniences, sends you daily emails for availability of homes per your parameters, points out features of homes such as an energy saving tech shield for attic roofs, and provides some handy tools to help you look at a home. He’ll prepare detailed brochures with photos of homes before touring them including some that would be on the market soon. He’ll give you pointers on how to beat out competition on homes that would be considering all offers. To sum up, my understanding is that Steve has been a realtor for many years, seems to have a passion for the business, has helped me find a great home in a short period of time, and would get my rating of 5 stars for customer service.

Selling our first house in not-so-friendly economy was a little nerve racking, but we were in it for the long haul with Steve . . . and it paid off! From the professional & friendly staging of our home, to the brochures that never ran out, to the quick follow up with prospective buyers realtors, we truly felt like we were in great hands with Steve. His knowledge and obvious research of the market, and genuine appreciation of his customers, is only a couple of many reasons why we highly recommend him to anyone trying to sell or buy a home! It’s nice to have someone who you truly feel has your best interest at heart!

My wife and I would like to pass along our compliments on and thanks for Steve Adams. Steve was exceptionally patient and helpful, always offering his time to not only assist us directly, but to also go above our expectations.
For example, when my business schedule didn’t allow me to be present, Steve took our input and stood-in for me with my wife during both the negotiation process and initial walk-through. He met on several occasions with the builder and ensured that all appropriate upgrades and drainage work was completed prior to closing. He researched pool contractors and gave us a list of recommended names to call upon. He made a trip to a local furniture store and gave them our names for move-in discounts. And these are only a few of the examples we could share.
Steve also brought his knowledge of the area, personal contacts and guidance during the financial and legal process of purchasing a home just as one would expect from a seasoned professional.
Over the years we have worked with a number of realtors. Until working with Steve, we have never had an experience where we were not only completely satisfied, but would enthusiastically recommend him or her to friends and family. With Steve we would, and I think that says it all.
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.

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.

It is with great appreciation and the best intentions that we write this brief summation of our experience with Steve Adams, a Realtor with your firm. Our experiences in the past have taught us to seek out and employ an individual whose values and commitment to service resembles ours. Steve Adams is one such person whose aid in our search for a home and transition to this beautiful state far exceeded our needs and expectations. We began our query for a home in Central Texas in April of 2009. Unfortunately, busy schedules and residency in South Florida hampered our efforts. After doing some preliminary research and outlining our home criteria, we conducted an internet search for a Realtor to work with. We held phone interviews and preliminary home searches with several other Realtors before finding Steve. We decided to employ him based on his professional presentation, friendly nature, and the relevancy the results he provided for our query.
Not only did Steve provide highly relevant results, he went out of his way to explain the demographics, purchase/ price histories, known problems, and future market value of each zone we were considering. In addition, Steve was very hospitable during our trips to view prospective homes. He provided dinner and lunch on more than one occasion. Once we found the ideal home, Steve went so far as to invite us to a social networking event near his home.
Contractual disagreements between the seller and us were difficult. Steve worked hard to negotiate the proper price as well as winning additional fixtures the seller planned to take. He stood in our absence for the home inspection, and completed a walk-through prior to close. Not once did we feel pressured by Steve. He always made sure we were comfortable with our purchase decision and put us in contact with professionals that valued our business and respected our time.
This person serves as a great example of professionalism and consistency. He exemplifies Keller-Williams’ reputation for quality service and will receive our business and referrals in the future.

In a crowded and competitive real estate agent market,Steve Adamssets 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.
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
I had the privilege of having Steve Adams as my realtor in the fall of 2009. The decision to sell my home in such a bad economy was a difficult one, but Steve welcomed the challenge with open arms. He came with an amazing recommendation from my parents, whom he had worked with a few times in previous years. This was my first experience selling a home, and Steve set realistic expectations for the property that were in line with my hopes for the sale price. I appreciate the time Steve spent educating me about the process as well as building our relationship. He truly is a rarity in the real estate community, ensuring honesty and respect from the day the home was listed to the day it sold. Steve’s years of experience were evident with his numerous listing sites online and tracking programs he utilized to bring my homes listing to the masses. Thanks to his dedication, attention to detail, and expert communication, a buyer was in contract with in a month and they purchased the home shortly after. I consider Steve to be a valuable asset to all that come into contact with him. More importantly, I consider Steve my dear friend that I will turn to him with all future real estate needs.

I want to iterate my deep appreciation for your tireless effort and work on the sale of my house on Trautwein Road. Your work was comprehensive and professional from our initial meeting and continued for the three months before the sale of this property. I found the information you provided to be thorough and informative and greatly helped me with my decisions on the marketing and sale of the house. This included your research on comparable listings in the area within the price range we had discussed for my property, a detailed plan for the sale of the property, and periodic assessments of the market conditions.
I found your regular updates and on-line access of the progress and realtors’ comments to be extremely useful. Your advice on how to price the property was based on solid information and knowledge of market conditions. Your understanding of the housing market in the Austin area was evident in all your advice and was based on facts rather than fancy.
You created a very presentable package, with professional pictures and sales materials, and was able to get good feedback from your fellow Realtors.
It was a pleasure to work with you, and I always felt I was getting an accurate and realistic assessment of what I could expect. I also appreciate your work with the title company on the settlement, done in my absence. I wish you continued success with your work, it was heartening to know that there are still honest Realtors out there.
I hope we will have to opportunity to meet again when you come to the greater DC area.

I have known Steve for more than thirty years and chose him to be our representative to help my wife and I sell and buy three homes in the most unstable economy and housing market we have ever witnessed for specific reasons. His personal work ethic, his background and knowledge of housing market trends, and his professional attitude. Steve’s knowledge and background proved to be invaluable to my wife and me in selling my home first, then selling her home, and then buying our first new home together. We were so concerned we would end up with two or more mortgages for an undetermined length of time or having to sell both of our homes below market value. The uncertain housing market and economy provided an almost insurmountable challenge and risk that my wife and I were not prepared for. I have a thirty year background in the construction industry as a plumbing contractor and have known and worked with Steve through different builders over the years. Steve’s knowledge and personal relationships with builders and developers has enabled him to have almost an insiders knowledge of land development, builders construction cost and relationships with contractors, how and why they design and build the way they do , property values and market trends. Steve came into our lives and helped us determine how much up dating would be needed to list at the high end of market value for both of our properties, how to coordinate logistics of selling two homes and finding a new one to buy without having to move to storage, then to a rental or month to month lease. Because of his expertise, my home sold in ten days at asking price, my wife’s home sold in four days at five thousand above asking price, and he negotiated twenty thousand off the listing price of our new home with our builder, and he did all of this in six months time. I just do not know how our experience of selling two homes and buying a new one could have been better in such a turbulent market with any other Realtor.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Austin, TX.
Steve represented us on two transactions, the sale of our previous house and the purchase of our current house. He was far more interested in serving us as a client to ensure we got what we wanted on both transactions than he was in simply making commissions. He was also focused on telling us the positive and the negative, not solely focused on what we wanted to hear (which was our previous experience using other real estate agents). My wife and I will engage Steve on all of our residential real estate transactions, and I would recommend you do the same.
Bought a home in 2009 in Bear Creek, TX.
Steve was very helpful and patient with us in our search for a home in a totally new location/city. His knowledge of the areas and help in narrowing down what might be best for us really made our project much easier. Once a house was selected he proved most capable of getting us through the tedious paperwork and all. And, this was all done in a very personable way. It is easy to recommend him.
Bought a home in 2011 in Hudson Bend, TX 78734.
Steve was a great resource as we purchased our first home. As first time buyers there were a number of questions we had along the way as we searched for and went through the purchase process. Steve was adept at quickly answering our questions our quickly getting back to us with an answer. Additionally he was able to find a house that fit our needs and the style we were looking for pretty quickly.
Bought a home in 2011.
Working with Steve to buy our first home was simply great.Steve took an incredibly overwhelming situation and guided us through the process with ease.My wife and I have recommended and will continue to recommend Steve.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Austin, TX.
I found myself in a situation where I had to rent a home in Austin TX within the next 30 days. Right from the start Steve asked the right questions and really listened to our preferences with regard to location and property characteristics. As a result of his professionalism, perseverance and knowledge of the market we were able to find the perfect house in the perfect location within a few short weeks. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone needing an outstanding real estate professional willing to go the extra mile!
Sold a home in 2009 in Bear Creek, TX.
Steve assisted us with both buying a home in the Austin, TX area, and then with selling the home when I relocated for a job out of state. When buying, Steve was a great asset for us with his knowledge of the Austin market, in the way he assessed our needs, and in making suggestions we hadn't considered to find just what we were looking for. When selling our home Steve really shined. My job took us away before the home sold, and Steve took great care of the property just as if it were his. He regularly checked on the home (even on days when it wasn't being shown!) to ensure it was in good shape, the lawn and landscaping was being maintained, arranged for the home to be dusted and swept, etc. He'd call just to let us know everything was OK as well as when something needed attention. It was as if we'd hired property manager as well as an agent in the process. By the time all was done, we had a family friend as well as an agent. How many people can honestly say that about anyone they've done business with? I couldn't recommend Steve more.
Bought a home in 2011.
Steve was so helpful in our search for a home in the Austin area. Being from CA and not knowing the area he pointed us in the right direction.. We looked at many lovely areas but once we found Georgetown we knew we would fine the perfert home and we did! He made the entire process painless! We are looking forward to our move and new freinds in TX.
Sold a home in 2011 in Austin, TX.
I would highly recommend Steve. He is knowledeable, responsive and patient. I felt like I had a guide all the way through the sale of my house and purchase of my new townhome. I hope that I will not have to buy another home anytime soon, but if I do, it will be Steve that I call.

We had Steve Adams as our Realtor in our recent sale of our home. Here is the personal comment I sent to Mr. Adams regarding that association.
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 & Jenny Broussard
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!
Sold a home in 2014 in The Hills, Bee Cave, TX.
Steve Adams is a truly wonderful Realtor. We have had the privilege of knowing Steve for 13 years. He has always been a kind, hard-working, and helpful person.
He has made the sale of our home at 838 Covered Bridge run very smoothly. This is our 4th time in which we've worked with Steve, selling two homes, a condo, and our daughter's home.
Steve listed our Driftwood home efficiently. We were treated with extreme respect, had prompt attention, had each document completely explained to us, and felt very comfortable putting the sale of our largest asset in the hands of Steve Adams. He is knowledgeable, kind, honest, and a great communicator. He has tremendous people skills.
He quietly and efficiently gets the job done. We felt that Steve was on our side, helping us make good decisions. We are very grateful for his level-headed way of doing business. He is calm under fire, not easily ruffled, and very supportive. He gave us excellent advice when negotiating our final contract and stayed with us through the last details with our buyer.He is truly a wonderful Realtor and a terrific person.
In conclusion, we feel nothing but gratitude for Steve Adams. He has been a tremendous help to us with our relocation. He will be a lifetime friend. We enthusiastically recommend him for the highest honors in the realty business. He is a top-notch Realtor and an outstanding human being. If he ever needs a recommendation, please don't hesitate to call us.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Austin, TX.
Exceptional representation and professionalism. Cannot recommend highly enough. Home sold before it went on the market. Steve not only negotiated an asking price higher than list but included some additional items that were above and beyond and which were also agreed to by Seller. Don't use anyone but this guy for all your realty needs!!!
Bought a home in 2014 in Bear Creek, TX.
Steve Adams makes one feel like you are his only priority. He is honest and upfront and helps you stay focused on what's most important for you and your family. By the time we found the right home we felt confident we had the right home, in the right subdivision for the best price. We have bought 9 houses over the years, and this was one of the smoothest purchases we have ever experienced. I felt like he had our best interest in mind as if we were family.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Leander, TX.
Steve is the most excellent real estate professional that anyone should need. From the beginning of the process through the closing he was very involved with the process of selling my property and was very available and gave outstanding advice which helped me sell it significantly above the initial asking price on the first day it was offered in the middle of the week in January. I have absolutely no hesitation in saying that Steve is the best choice as a real estate agent, I am also employing him in the process of another property and am just as happy with his work and dedication on my behalf.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Austin, TX.
Steve offered superb, unsurpassed service and we have purchased and sold many many homes. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Consummate professional, incredibly responsive and knowledgeable and an expert negotiator. Got us an amazing price, far above asking. You will make a huge mistake if you do not trust Steve to help you buy or sell your home!!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Austin, TX.
My wife and I recently worked with Steve to purchase our second home in Austin. It was a no-brainier on who to work with after he helped us with our first home purchase. Steve not only shows incredible guidance but knows what it takes to get a fair deal, and to make sure that you're well taken care of.Steve is a great guy and we're also proud to have him as a family friend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in West Oak Hill, Austin, TX.
Steve is a very professional and knowledgeable realtor. He helped us through all stages of selling our house - renovation advice, marketing strategy, and follow through on all details to ensure a smooth closing. He knows the market and stays on top of the latest data to ensure the house is optimally priced for the market. This is the 2nd house Steve has sold for us, and I would highly recommend his services as a realtor.
Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Lago Vista, TX.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Austin, TX.
The experience working with Steve on selling and buying our homes was great. He has gone above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and as planned. He not only sold our home in a timely manner but has been there to help throughout our new home buying process. He has even made sure our builder took care of any punch list items or warranty issues long after the sell. Steve impressed us with his knowledge in the housing market, his responsiveness to our needs, and his honesty. Hiring Steve was the best choice we could have made and if we ever move again he would definitely be our first and only choice to sell our home. Thanks again Steve, Dwayne and Deneice Griffin
Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Leander, TX.
This guy has to be among the very best in the business, not only did he pick us up at the house we were staying while looking for a home but he then drove us literally everywhere, he had to have put a 1000 miles on his vehicle. He drove us not once but twice from north of Austin to New Braunfels tx which is at least an hour drive. We looked at over 25 properties both in New Braunfels and in the Austin area both times that we flew in from Pennsylvania(he even picked us up at the airport which absolutely floored me I mean what agent is going to pick you up at an airport? well he did) Paid for our meals( yeah he did that too) never once did he pressure us on buying any one house and offered his honest opinion on what he thought about each property. Thanks to him my wife and I found our dream home in Leander Tx and made a new friend.
Sold a home in 2015 in Shearer Hills – Ridgeview, San Antonio, TX.
It was a pleasure working with Steve on the sale of our home, he was quick in getting us started and succeeded. You can trust he will get what he tells you done and within the timelines.
Sold a home in 2015 in Williston, ND.
Steve did a great job in selling our house, we price it at market and we sold it in 10 days, Steve listened to us and understood we need to close before the 1st of the year.
Moving from GA to TX was a stressful task, but Steve made the home buying experience the least stressful of all. Steve was extremely responsive and always offered solid advice during the entire process. We would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy realtor.
Bought a home in 2016 in Bear Creek, TX.
My wife and I were in the market to purchase our first home. Steve was recommended to us by several people my wife works with. When we first met with Steve I knew he would be a fun guy to work with in this process and that he was very knowledgeable about the Austin area. He would tell us about different school districts, taxes as well as other positives and negatives in areas we were looking. We were very excited to look at a house in South Austin in Circle C close to 45. Steve told us that he thinks the house is great, but that there were plans to expand 45 and this would create road noise that will make the property less desirable if we wanted to resale. As well as, not fun to live by. Steve also brought an article explaining the plans and time frames. Reasons like this is why I can highly recommend Steve to all my friends and family. Steve's main concern is to find the right house for you! Many people in this industry would have told us many houses we looked at were great and we should put in a bid. Not Steve, he was always honest with his perception of a house.
Michelle De Dios
My husband and I just bought our first house, a very exciting (but scary) life event. Steve Adams was recommended by my coworker, and I instantly felt that he had our best interests at heart. He comes with SO much experience and knowledge of Austin real estate, Austin growth/development and the entire home-buying process. He would answer every question with only the utmost honesty, which I appreciated. If a house or feature did not seem right, he would bring it up so that we did not make a poor decision. He challenged us to think about the future, which was helpful because of how focused we were on simply finding a home. He also assured us that the right "one" was out there, and he did everything in his power to help us eventually find it. Steve Adams is professional, knowledgeable, energetic and willing to help. I recommend him for all home purchases and hope to work with him again in the future!
Bought a home in 2016 in Three Points, Pflugerville, TX.
Steve has great knowledge of Austin and all the surrounding areas. Steve was very punctual and always available if I had any questions about the home-buying process. Steve has extensive knowledge of the various builders in the area and things to look for when purchasing a home. Steve was very honest, did not pressure me to buy, and was very focused on making sure I picked the right home. Steve was very patient throughout the entire process, even when I changed my mind on some houses. His main concern was making sure I was happy with the house. I would highly recommend using Steve as your realtor. He will find your dream house and make the entire process enjoyable and easy to understand.
