“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.”

How To Stage Your Home To Sell – Getting ready to sell your home can be stressful. Follow some of these tips to make it easier on you, and get your home sold quickly! De-clutter: Getting rid of all the clutter in your house allows others to picture living there too! While we all love our knick-knacks and stacks of cozy blankets, it takes away from what your home can truly offer. Keep it Smelling Fresh: A fresh smelling home is inviting to visitors. Make Necessary Changes/Upgrades: Any upgrades that you need to make should be made before you stage your home, that way potential buyers will have no reason to deduct from your asking price. Consider Neutral Paint Colors: Colored walls are very trendy right now, the problem is that you may like colors that potential buyers do not! Go with neutral calming colors for a modern look. Clean Closets/Cabinets: Go through your closets and cabinets and donate or pack away what you don’t need.
