“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.”

Anyone with a pet has been through the accidents on the carpet. No matter how much we try to train our pets mistakes happen; and for some reason it always happens on the freshly clean carpets! As much as we try to clean them up the first time around, there are sometimes still stains and odors. There are some tricks to first find the areas and then get them out! Find the spot: It might be hard to find an area where your pet had an accident especially after it has dried. However, you can use your nose to sniff out areas. If you don’t want to have to sniff out the spots, you can use a black light instead. Here is how to use the black light successfully: -Turn out all of the lights. -Trace the black light over the entire carpeted surface. -Double check places like corners and behind furniture. -Outline new and old pet stains with chalk so you can see them when the lights are on.

The process of finding a new home can be long and stressful, but it’s what happens after you’ve found your new home and your offer has been accepted by the seller that matters. Prior to closing, your real estate agent will set up the final walk through of your new home. The final walk through is arguably one of the most important steps in the process. It helps you determine whether or not everything is how it is supposed to be, and that it hasn’t changed since your last visit. Here are four things to consider when you’re going through your final home walk through. Be Prepared Bring your contract or any paperwork you think you might need with you to the final walk through. If you need to refer to it on site for some reason you won’t need to go through the hassle of retrieving it, or worse – left guessing what it might say. Make a Checklist To ensure that you don’t forget anything in the final walk through, make a checklist of the things that absolutely need to be looked over. This could include, but is not limited to, turning on/off all light fixtures,…Read More
Are you going to be putting your home on the market soon? If this is your first time as a seller, or even if you’ve been through the process before, there are several factors and things to take into consideration in order to get the best return on your investment. You may have received tons of advice on the best things to do to sell from friends, family, the web or your real estate agent, but what about the things you should avoid? Below are the top seven mistakes most sellers make when putting their home on the market. Check them out and make sure you aren’t guilty of these errors. 1. Not inspecting your home. If you have an older home you should consider having a certified inspector go through your home to make you aware of any issues or problems. That way you can take care of any repairs or maintenance necessary before potential buyers become involved. 2. Skimping on prep. Think you can get away without freshening up your home’s interiors or staging for sale? Think again. You should at least give your home a deep, professional-level cleaning before showing it to potential buyers, and the…Read More
