“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
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.”
"Steve helped my family deal with an estate sale of my fathers home and we simply could not be happier with the job he did. He was extremely knowledgeable and relentless in marketing our property. He was extremely professional throughout the entire process and updated us each time a development took place. He offered us sound advice and counsel and we would highly, highly recommend him to anyone needing professional real estate assistance - whether it be as a Buyer or Seller. Great job from start to finish."
In a CNBC article, self-made millionaire David Bach explained that “the single biggest mistake millennials are making” is not purchasing a home because buying real estate is “an escalator to wealth.” Bach went on to explain: “If millennials don’t buy a home, their chances of actually having any wealth in this country are little to none. The average homeowner to […]Read More
Do geopolitical events have an affect on your daily life? Absolutely … Tensions with North Korea were the primary influence on mortgage rates over the past few weeks. The reaction from investors to the increase in tensions with North Korea was to buy relatively safer assets such as U.S. mortgage-backed securities (MBS). The added demand for MBS caused mortgage rates to decline. And Here’s Your Monday Morning Coffee… A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. ~John Barrymore The founders of BitSight Technologies, Stephen Boyer and Nagarjuna Venna, believed they had a hot idea for a startup: a business that could assess and rate the cybersecurity of other businesses Today BitSight, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is in a sweet spot as companies look for ways to reduce the risks of being hacked. BitSight issues daily ratings that are akin to a credit score for security and help companies flag not only their own risks but also those of the companies they do business with: vendors, partners, acquisition targets. The risks from third parties burst into public consciousness after the 2013 attack on Target, when the credit-and debit-card data of 40 million customers was stolen through an HVAC vendor. While BitSight faces competition from newer entrants, it retains the advantage of…Read More

A recent article from a reputable news source was titled: Here’s why some homeowners still can’t sell. In the opening bullets of the article, the author claimed, “Negative equity is one of the main reasons why there are so few homes for sale.” The article then goes on to soften that stance but we want […]Read More
Six months ago, we reported that the mismatch between the type of inventory of homes for sale and the demand of buyers in the US was causing the formation of two markets. In the starter and trade-up home categories, there were significantly more buyers than there were homes for sale, causing a seller’s market. In […]Read More

In August, the Consumer Confidence index continued to post gains, to the second highest reading since December 2000. This index does not reflect actual economic activity, just consumer outlook, and as we have pointed out in the past… consumer outlook is a strong predictor of our economy! “Rings and jewels are not gifts, but apologies for gifts. The only gift is a portion of thyself. Thou must bleed for me.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson “This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States. When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries…Read More
