It has been a distinct and unique pleasure working with Steve, both in selling and purchasing our next home. Steve is without a doubt: professional knowledgeable up to date in current market trends realistic honest personable fair cooperative precise helpful prompt Steve listened to our needs and requirements and then delivered and adjusted in his kind and mannerly way, as we modified and made changes. Steve clarified info for us in terms that were succinct and comprehensive. As seniors, we have worked with several agents over the years, so it speaks highly of Steve when we say HE IS TOPS! My husband has been in construction all his life and so, he was thoroughly impressed that Steve could talk the trade as well, unlike the many agents today that only show the surface and talk feelings. What good are feelings in your pocket book!? My Mom, an award winning agent in her time, would have been impressed by all his skills and talents...and friendly smile!!! Steve's use of technology (paperless) was somewhat new for us and he was patient to walk us through it all. Thank you for all your hard work and honesty, Steve! Good Luck - although you won't need it! Sincerely, Rita and Tom

Steve came recommended to us to buy a house as we were moving a couple of hours from our last house. Steve was professional, knowledgable, friendly and patient. I would recommend Steve to anyone who's buying, or selling a property.

Steve is a super knowledgeable and thorough agent. This was my first time listing with an agent and Steve really took the time to explain the logistics around selling my home, providing me advice on what I can do to help raise the value, and worked through the negotiations to get me the best offer. I was super nervous about selling my home in January especially because not a lot of homes sell around that time traditionally, but Steve put me at ease and we went through the process. From the time we put up the sign to accepting the offer it took 8 hours and I got over the asking price! I'd highly recommend Steve for your next sale or purchase, he has an incredible amount of patience and will put in the effort to make sure the sale or purchase of your home is a success!

I had a chance to meet Steve Schaefer when I had decided to sell my property located in Kitchener, Ontario. Steve showed genuine interest and concern from day one on. The whole experience of listing and showing the property as well as negotiating and closing the deal could have not gone any smoother. Steve has shown his thorough knowledge and expertise in a very professional manner. I have found him to be a very trustworthy and reliable person who is willing to go well beyond his "normal" everyday job requirements and duties. I would highly recommend his services and without any hesitation I will have him as my real estate agent again in the future when needed. Thank you very much Steve! - Marja Ikonen

Stephen Schaefer worked with us on our relocation from Markham to the Waterloo Region.  We were not familiar with the area and after many visits and conversations, we finally settled on Cambridge.  2018/2019 was a rapidly changing time in Real Estate and we were naive as to the price point required for the home we wanted.  The information and insight we received from Steve was key to our decision and finding our new home.  During the time we took to find a home, Steve worked with us every day - scheduling 3 to 4 appointments a day,  always on time and was especially good at listening to our comments and adjusting the listings we would be seeing the next day.  Don't know what we would have done without him and greatly appreciate his help in finding our new house in Cambridge.  Thanks Steve!

Dear Stephen,
Thank you so much for your expertise and good advice. When I first thought of moving and selling my house a few realtors called but nobody but you followed up.  I explained to all of the realtors that I really loved my present house and what I was looking for was very specific. It seems no one wanted my business. Too much work. But knowing all of this, you showed up and gave me an estimate of what my house was worth and we went on from there. 
The search took a long time, almost a year. And when a property I visited didn’t fit the bill I never felt pressured to put in an offer.  You worked hard for your commission but it always felt like you were really working for me, and my satisfaction was the goal to attain.
You have integrity which I believe is rare in this line of work. I would recommend your services to any of my friends without hesitation. 
Everything went without a glitch with the sale and the purchase and I couldn’t be happier with all the help you provided. 
Thank you for helping me find my new home, I didn’t think I would love it as much as my previous house but I do! It’s exactly what I needed! 
If I ever decide to move again, you will be the first person I call.

Hi Stephen,
I want to thank you for your help in finding THE house. Your patience and persistence is very much appreciated. You showed yourself patient even when I didn’t know what I wanted and that’s very special. I truly feel that you enjoy your work and not just for the monetary reward but because you genuinely want to help people find the right home. I never felt pressured but on the contrary I always felt you were on my side, looking for my best interests, no matter how long it took, and it did take a long time. Well, it was worth the search as I have found the perfect property for my needs. Your good judgement also save me a lot of money on my purchase, so thank you for your expertise, for all the good advices and your professionalism. 
Some realtors are in for the quick buck, but that’s not you, you really put in the work and always did so graciously.
So now that I bought, let’s sell...
Thanks again!

Steve was great to work with! Always quick to reply and answer any questions we had throughout the entire process.
Made making offers on houses very quick and easy. Very flexible and good at making things work around our schedule. Would definitely use him again as our realtor.

Steve Schaefer

As first time home buyers, we had no idea what to expect.  Stephen took the time to meet with us, discus our goals and listened to us to understand exactly what we were looking for.  Even during the hardest parts of the search, we always felt like he had our best interests in mind and knew he would see the big picture even when we didn't.  In this crazy market, we never felt rushed but always felt informed.  Stephen was patient and available to answer our questions whenever we had them.  And at crunch time, he made sure we were grounded and focused.  There is no way we would have found the home we did with anybody else.  We don't want to say you'd be crazy not to work with Stephen Schaefer...but you would be.

I have to admit that I have not had that much experience with real estate.  That's why having Steve Schaefer on my side has been so great.  He made up for my lack of experience.  I like to keep organized and always know the next steps in the process and Steve always knew.  On my cell phone, he quickly became the person to whom I sent the most messages while working through a real estate transaction.   His advice was invaluable and his insights into the process prevented this transaction from turning into a stressful mess.

Steve worked tirelessly during our 6 month hunt for our first house. We saw more than 40 houses and Steve stayed patient and willing to work with us! Steve kept us informed on each house and during each step of the buying process - we never questioned what was happening or what we had to do next because Steve was in constant communication with us. He has great recommendations for Home Inspectors and Lawyers to work with. He was the calm voice behind any disappointments we ran in to and the reassuring voice when we were feeling a little down. He was willing to work with our odd scheduling conflicts and sometimes took each of us to see a house separately (only making more work for himself - but completely willing to do so). We have nothing but amazing things to say about Steve and can not thank him enough for all that he did for us and our family over the last few months! We have already told many people about how much we love Steve and will continue to do so for years to come! We love our new house Steve and can't wait to move in! Thanks again for all that you did and continue to do! We will forever be grateful!! Emily, Adam and Aidan

As a first time home buyer I had no idea the amount of time involved with searching for houses and the process of buying a house. Stephen was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. He always made himself available and kept in constant communication about listings, offers, etc.  I never would have found my house without Stephen's assistance.  Even after the offer was accepted he was available for additional guidance, input and for additional viewings for contractors.  I have no hesitation in recommending Stephen to anyone.

We had a very positive experience with Stephen as our real estate agent. He was always very prompt in responding to emails and out texts messages. Stephen was always honest with his opinions on different houses we looked at, and would not hesitate to tell us about issues he knew about. Stephen was very good at understanding what we were looking for in a house and suggesting properties we should walk through. Stephen found us a house we were very happy with, and got the deal closed within hours of the first walk-through. We would recommend Stephen to anyone looking for a new house.
