STEVE McEWEN CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

StarStarStarStarStar

"This is our second condo we've bought with Steve, and again, it was an incredible experience. A testimonial for him should just be the fact that we sold our condo, bought and closed on our new one in just 5 weeks. He knew the best way to put our place on the market, the best way to deal with potential buyers of our property, and how to work with the sellers of the property we wanted to buy. One of the best things about dealing with Steve is that he gets down to business learning about his clients extremely fast. He knows their personalities, he knows how to find the right place for them based on that. I cannot possibly recommend him enough, and I have recommended him a lot." -Griffin & Allie Baron, Uptown Chicago

This is my second time purchasing and selling with Steve McEwen and I wouldn't go anywhere else. We had a few weird offers that fell through but each time that very weekend Steve would get us another offer. He was right on with the price and at no time did I feel pressured to lower the price or make property changes. He worked with us through the whole process and was very encouraging in everything. I would totally recommend Steve McEwen to my family, friends, and anyone about to enter the property market. -Paul Fowler, Lakeview Chicago

When you sell your home you want to get the best price and the largest network. Steve gave us the right price and the largest network." -Paul & Heather Fowler, Lakeview Chicago

When the first deal fell through Steve had an equal offer from a new buyer within a week, and we closed in 30 days. We cannot be happier. Steve McEwen is the best real estate agent we have ever met. Thank you!" -John Sostak, West Town, Chicago

"Steve McEwen did a terrific job selling my custom luxury home in Lake Forest. I had listed the property with other brokers for many years without receiving a satisfactory offer. Steve gave us maximum marketing exposure by sending out a press release to the local and national media to enhance the marketability and credibility of our critically acclaimed home by Architectural Digest. Our home was featured on NBC-TV’s “Open House” and Chicago Sun-Times Splash Magazine on the same day. The result, the next day, not only did we receive the highest offer for our property in over four years, we also became the highest luxury home sale in Lake Forest in 2012. Steve, a job well done!" -Ron Benach, Founder of Lexington Homes & Concord Homes | Chicago Association of REALTORS "Hall of Fame"

"I don’t spend the time to write testimonials, but I feel compelled to do so for Steve McEwen. Throughout my 30+ year career in new home construction I have been told that a great real estate agent can achieve a greater sales price for your home or property. I have been suspicious until meeting and working with Steve.Steve has a great deal of knowledge with architecture, floor plans and desirable features in the home. He listens and absorbs your knowledge to improve his presentation, is a great problem solver and obviously has an engaging personality. He knows his neighborhoods and the local housing market intimately, he returns voicemails and emails with lightning speed, he is up on and uses the latest technology and he has a great network. Last and most important, Steve represents the highest level of integrity, honesty, sincerity and trustworthiness.I highly recommend Steve McEwen for all your real estate needs." Best regards, Kevin Davis | President | Fairfield Custom Homes

"Steve was highly recommended to me by my cousin who is a mortgage broker and has worked with numerous realtors. I had high expectations and he did not disappoint. Steve helped me both sell and buy condos in the Bucktown area. Before I listed my condo he made a number of suggestions for small upgrades that I could make to add value without making a big investment. I truly believe without those changes I wouldn't have sold my unit or would have gotten significantly less. Throughout the process Steve managed to be a straight shooter and tell me the truth while remaining positive and making me feel positive and calm. During negotiations he was helpful and patient. When it came time to buy Steve very quickly got a sense of what I was looking for and the places he suggested I liked much better than what I picked! Steve was respectful of my budget but encouraged me to run different numbers to see what different prices looked like in terms of monthly payments. I couldn't be happier with the service I received from Steve and recommend him to everyone I know. I wouldn't even consider not using him the next time I am looking to buy or sell." -Jill Emerson, Bucktown, Chicago

"Steve was always very communicative and kept us informed about the progress of the sale of the house. The first time the house sold the deal fell apart at the day before it was to close. Steve let me know immediately and said I have kept the names of those who have showed interest and I will put the house back on the market immediately and call all those who have viewed the property. The house sold within 24 hours of the house going back on the market and we had three offers. Steve's immediate action was the main reason for the fast Sale. I am convinced of that." --Keith Foley, North Mayfair, Chicago

“I have been in sales for 10 years and I was more than impressed. Until I worked with Steve, I truly thought I would never work with an agent. Steve exceeded my expectations. Steve completely changed my stereotypes of real estate agents. He is a rare breed! I would strongly recommend to anyone and everyone! An exceptional listener and an even better communicator, Steve’s patience and expertise were instrumental in seeing our complicated transaction through till the end.” -Michael & Lizz Gallagher, Ukrainian Village, Chicago

"My husband and I were introduced to Steve as a referral but really enjoyed getting to know Steve and working with him. Steve made himself very available to us. He always communicated with us in a timely manner and has great follow up skills. He was conscience of our time frames especially when we had sold our home and needed to find another quick. Steve stayed very neutral and didn't try to sway our decision but instead helped us to narrow down what was the best house for our family. Since we were moving from the city to Elmhurst, Steve gave us lots of information about the town itself. It was good to work with someone who was familiar with the area. Steve did a great job negotiating for us and really did everything we asked of him." -James & Cheri Kasella, Elmhurst

Many thanks, Steve for a highly professional service.” -Renus & Colette Kelfkens, Corporation Relocation Clients

"We had some very unique challenges in trying to sell our condo in the Chicago suburbs. Rather than telling us what we wanted to hear, Steve immediately shared with us what we needed to know in order to best position our property in a very tough market. Steve was persistent and incredibly instrumental in getting our property sold within a few months for a price that was at the top of the market. From the very beginning, Steve's marketing presentation and professionalism impressed us while his his communication and attention to detail made us feel that we w
