Proven Track Record
To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to pass along our experience with Steve Sommer and The Sommer Group. First, Steve handled himself very professionally and incorporated a great deal of knowledge about the area and about the quality and value of the product in the marketplace.
Steve was recommended to us by a trusted friend. Our friend spent numerous days looking at property in the Scottsdale area and decided to have Steve build a custom home for him in Silverleaf. With Steve’s background as a custom home builder as well as his experience in real estate, we thought that combination was far superior to any other realtor in the area.
First, Steve asked us numerous questions about the type of home, property and environment that would fit our needs. Steve sent us a number of listings that he felt fit our requirements. We than selected 7 listings to view. Prior to our coming into town Steve had physically previewed all seven homes and when we met to begin our home tours he recommended we not look at 2 out of the 7 homes due to quality and condition of the homes.
We did find one of the homes that met our exact needs but was a short sale and we had never had experience bidding and or closing on a short sale home. Steve did a great job guiding us through the negotiating, contracts and waiting period. Steve also negotiated a hold back at closing to take care of a roof question – this is one of the areas his custom home building experience paid off, he was right on the money needed to repair the roof.
Because we were out of town buyers Steve handled the home inspections. Steve also met with, obtained bids and negotiated prices from quality reliable subcontractors for work that we wanted done to our new home.
Steve did everything he said he would do, we always felt he was on top of everything and we had confidence he was handling everything to our benefit.
We have bought and sold 9 different homes and this by far was the best experience we have had with regards to a real estate agent. Steve’s experience as a custom home builder, his knowledge of the market, and his professionalism as an agent is an unbeatable combination.
