I recently listed my house for sale and had flip flopped from realtor to realtor. Once I found Steven Durbahn at John Aaroe Group I was convinced he would sell my house immediately. He is a true professional who specializes in houses that don't sell. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their house quickly, at the highest possible price. This man is a rockstar, I can't tell you enough wonderful things about him. List with him and your home or condo will sell in a heartbeat -- I promise!!!

Dear Fran, I wanted to tell you of the wonderful service I received from Steven Durbahn. He listed my condo for sale/lease. I told him I was leaning toward leasing. He did bring me a buyer (over asking price) in 3 days of listing. I just did not feel it was time to sell. Steven was proactive in finding a renter and went over and above his responsibilities as a Realtor to assist in getting the condo ready to rent. He was a pleasure to work with. I will recommend him to anyone I know needing a Realtor. I just wanted to let you know what a hard working, wonderful man you have working for you.

Steven is definitely the agent you want to rep you on a real estate transaction. He was very on top of it and extremely thorough especially dealing with a difficult seller. My home buying situation couldn't have been more complicated, but Steven helped walk me through the uncharted waters. In the end, I got the house and thanks to Steven, a beautiful home.
- Mark C.
Steven was our agent and found us an amazing property! He was always was up front, honest and quick to respond. He made the entire process seamless and it was a pleasure to work with Steven and his team. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a home.
- Stacey B.
Thank you Steven for your kind help, knowledge and patience! I highly recommend using Steven to buy a house - he's great!

Steven is the best and only real estate agent you will ever need! Prompt, accurate, knowledgeable, organized, detail oriented and a real pleasure to work with. He goes well beyond what most agents offer by taking the time to know his clients requirements and working tirelessly to deliver the perfect solution. Steven is a go getter! He gets the job done in a professional manner and puts his clients needs above everything. He kept us in the loop throughout the whole process and was always quick to answer my phone calls, texts, and e-mails. He got us multiple offers at asking and above asking the day after our first open house. He sold our condo at a record breaking price for the building. I highly recommend him to anyone whether you are buying or selling. By far, the best experience we've ever had with a broker.
- Marco Fekrat
Steven was recommended to me through neighbors of mine who had a great experience with him selling their condo. After interviewing several real estate agents including Steven, I had no doubt he was who I wanted to work with. Steven is so professional, knowledgeable and very responsive- and also great with negotiations! He got my condo sold at the highest price in the building to date- and quickly too! Also, his whole team are top notch including his photographer, marketers and the escrow company he works with. I can’t say enough good things about Steven and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their property!
