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 May 15

By Steve Adams | May 15, 2017

Despite the global uncertainties around the world, recently released data showed that U.S. consumer sentiment remained at the elevated levels seen since the election. The preliminary reading for the consumer sentiment index from the University of Michigan rose to 98, above the consensus of 97, and the second highest level in years.  Comments from President Trump also were positive for mortgage rates. The President said that the U.S. dollar is “getting too strong” and that he likes “a low-interest rate policy.” Since Trump appoints the Fed Chair, his support for looser monetary policy caused mortgage rates to decline. And Here’s Your Monday Morning Coffee… Education is the most weapon which you can use to change the world. ~ Nelson Mandela Standord Commencement Speech – Atul Gawande – 2012 We had a patient at my hospital this winter whose story has stuck with me. Mrs. C was eighty-seven years old, a Holocaust survivor from Germany, and she’d come to the emergency room because she’d suddenly lost the vision in her left eye. It tells you something about her that she was at work when it happened, in the finance department at Sears. She’d worked her entire life. When her family left Nazi Germany, they narrowly avoided the…

Monday Coffee May 8, 2017 – A wide range of news affects mortgage rates…

By Steve Adams | May 8, 2017

A wide range of news affects mortgage rates. One of the most common questions we receive is regarding international influences. The missile strike in Syria for example, caused investors to move to safer assets, like mortgage backed securities, which helped interest rates. Domestic issues also have an impact … far more jobs were added in February than March, thus negatively affecting mortgage rates. The Fed is remaining consistent in setting expectations for future increases in interest rates in each Fed meeting. And Here’s Your Monday Morning Coffee… Education then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of men, the balance-wheel of the social machinery. ~ Horace Mann Steve Jobs Commencement Speech – Stanford University 2005: I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal.
