“I could not recommend Steve highly enough. He is smart, knowledgeable and is always ahead of the curve. He leads you through the process (selling in my case) and keeps you informed of each step along the way. You can depend on his advice because it comes from years of experience. Above all he is totally honest. I would recommend him to anyone who either wants to buy or sell high end real-estate.”
- Robert W. Felton


“I have worked with Steve for nineteen years, on over a dozen transactions. Steve is a very savvy negotiator, has comprehensive knowledge of the San Francisco market, and demonstrates a relentless drive to succeed on behalf of his clients. He also has a fabulous team working for him, who are instrumental to his success. Every single one of my sales was record-setting thanks to his astute advice on how to best prepare and market my property, and due to his and his team’s hard work on my behalf. I would not dream of ever buying or selling without him in charge of the deal.”
- N.R. Investor/Owner


“In advance of choosing a real estate agent to assist me in choosing a home in San Francisco, I extensively interviewed several such agents and happily chose Steven M. and his team to work with me. The process of finding and selecting such a home was seriously challenged by virtue of my going through the dissolution of a long term marriage coupled by the complexities attendant to dealing with a co-op property whose legal documents were sorely out of date. Steven exhibited great patience as he shepherded me through the process of identifying the “right” home for me and his team literally worked into the early morning hours for several days dealing with the arcane complexities of co-op rules and regulations necessary to satisfy my lender as well as myself. My endorsement for him is unequivocal to anybody considering engaging his services including myself when and if I wished to undertake another residential real estate transaction.”
- Sy Kaufman, Founder of Crosslink Capital


“My family used Steven to purchase our first home over 10 years ago, and when it came time to move, we had no hesitation in calling him to find our new home - we would certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Steven is incredibly honest and patient; it is obvious that he cares more about finding the 'right' home for his clients than just making a sale. Steven's upbeat personality and sense of humor make working with him a pleasure, and his extensive knowledge of the market helps ensure you are making the right decision. Steven is very easy to reach, and if he is unavailable, he has a very competent and responsive team to take his place.”
- C.G., Homeowner


"This was without a doubt the best real estate purchase experience ever. Steve’s focus on the details, his responsiveness, his ability to understand our needs, his incredible negotiating skill and top notch service made this a very positive experience. Even though we were in a new city, Steve paved over the bumps in the road and made the transaction seamless. I have already recommended him to friends and would not hesitate to do so again."
- Kathy Taylor, former Mayor Tulsa, OK and Bill Lobeck, former CEO National/Alamo Car Rental


"It was a wonderful experience working with you, Steve. You are by far the best realtor in California!"
