Steve Laevastu's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Steve Laevastu

    • Steve Laevastu with Windermere Real Estate is not only a very smart and educated real estate agent, knowing the housing market inside and out, but very nice, polite, kept us informed along the way, and always available to answer our questions. We were amazed how from the start to the finish of the selling and closing of the house, it all went so fast, and sold way above the listing price. We feel so lucky to have gotten him and knew right after we met him that he is a competent professional with an upbeat and positive personality who would sell the house for the maximum price, and he did. Thanks so very much Steve, for making it all go so fast, smooth and easy you really know your stuff.

      - Bonnie Hutchings
    • Steve is an exceptional real estate professional. Our home was quite unique and we interviewed four different realtors due to the multiple considerations of the property. Steve captured every part of the home and the listing like no others. He does his homework, invests in his listings and gets the money! We never looked back or had even a moment of question about whether we chose the right person! He listed the house at a significantly higher price point than other agents recommended and we sold and closed within an exceptionally short time. We trusted him and his expertise from the very beginning and all the way to the closing! Thank you Steve!!!

      - Liz Sullivan
    • He is an exceptional real estate agent. His honesty, integrity, knowledge and passion are extraordinary. He will always tell you the truth and guide you with superb competence as he partners with you to sell your house. It will be one the best decision you make to choose Steve as your realtor .

      - Zona McKenzie
    • We contacted Steve when we were thinking about selling our house in the Ravenna area, largely because of his reputation and regularly distributed data about the house market and sales in our area. From start to end, he was amazingly knowledgeable, attentive, committed, experienced, professional, and helpful. He was like an artistic director in a complex play with many acts, walking us through the many steps of house preparation/repairs/staging, the process of display, and a host of complications related to the sale itself. I was stunned by the superb contractors whom he could summon on a moment's notice to deal with issues in our house (from ordinary repairs to painting to basement leaks and new sewer lines). We contacted him because of his high reputation, and he exceeded our expectations in every regard. Steve made a very complex, stressful process much more manageable; we ended up selling our house fairly quickly for a great price. We were very satisfied, and we extend our very, very highest recommendation to Steve!

      - Michael McCann
    • Steve Laevastu is the ultimate seller's agent in this competitive market. His experience shows through all of his advice and attentiveness. He goes beyond just selling your house. His advice of what to do to get ready was completely on mark. He had the house completely staged, even had the neighbor's property tidied up! Steve worked with us through the entire selling process. I can't say enough about his services. We were able to obtain an offer above our asking price. Thanks to Steve, he made life so much easier for our parents and ourselves!

      - Teri Kriegman
    • I can't say enough wonderful things about Steve as an agent. From beginning to end it was a great experience primarily due to Steve's hard work and expertise. I always received a prompt and personal response when I contacted him. He even managed home renovations to get the house ready for market since I live on the other side of the state. I can't recommend him enough. Steve should be YOUR agent and if he's not your shortchanging yourself.

      - Amber Wolfe
    • Our experience with Steve was great from beginning to end. He is extremely knowledgable and very dedicated to his profession and his clients. He helped us list our home at the right time and for the right price. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to others...in fact we already have!

      - Joey Reiter
    • Steve was fantastic to work with. His knowledge of the market is unmatched. He is an expert marketer he did a great write-up for the house, great photos, and a beautifully laid-out 4-page color brochure. He partners with a very savvy stager/designer who helped us decide targeted upgrades to make the house more appealing. Steve obtained very reasonable bids for painting, floor refinishing and other maintenance. He even project-managed the work to get it all done in less than 2 weeks. Hes a great listener and will always ask if you have any questions or concerns. There is no way we would have gotten what we did price-wise without his help.

      - Ed Hoffman
    • My husband and I interviewed numerous realtors to sell our Seattle home. We are truly thrilled that we went with Steve Laevastu. Not only was Steve hard-working and professional, he was able to take care of any potential concerns that we may have had with the house itself, BEFORE we were even capable of verbalizing them to him. He deftly navigated a variety of challenges that came up during the sales negotiations; we had extreme confidence in his experience and counsel every step of the way. If you want to work with a professional that is full of integrity, Steve is your agent. Steve was the only agent that we interviewed 3 years ago that told us that although he didn't know the future of the market and anything can happen, as we saw in 2008, if it was him and he was able he would hold on to the rental home for a couple of more years to maximize our investment. You will only be thrilled if you choose Steve Laevastu as your agent.

      - Keith Duffy
    • Steve and his team helped us to sell our home at the highest possible price while at the same time making the whole process practically seamless. Every concern my partner and I had was addressed immediately and satisfactorily. Our home had lots going for it and more than a few things that needed addressing before we listed. Steve was very knowledgeable about what was wise to do and what was not and took care of everything we didn't have time, energy or expertise to do on our own - quickly addressing lender punch list items, providing referrals or managing repairs, and giving us support all the way. We couldn't have been happier and most definitely recommend Steve Laevastu if you are considering selling your property.

      - Candace Gruber
    • Steve most recently represented us as a listing agent for our Seattle Ravenna bungalow. We did not live locally, and the house (which he helped us buy in 2007 as our primary residence) was now an income property. Steve helped coordinate everything to make the sale smooth - he got bids for the stagers and painters while the tenants were still living there, and he arranged to have a painter start just after the tenants moved out. From empty house to listing, just two weeks, then offers came within just a few weeks, with a closing thereafter. Steve is very organized and very easy to get a hold of by phone, e-mail, and/or text. I wish all professionals could have his level of professionalism/ease of communication.

      - Michael Linden
    • Helping my elder parent sell her home from a different state was a daunting task. We interviewed several real estate agents, and Steve stood out immediately. As soon as he walked around the property, he knew exactly what needed to be done to attract buyers, he knows what buyers are looking for. He recommend improvements on the home while staying within our budget. Steve took care of everything from the beginning to the end. He worked closely with a designer, who gave excellent recommendations. We didnt need to worry about scheduling the multiple contractors or the quality of their work, professional photos, and staging. He took care of everything! The remodeling finished quickly, the home was beautiful and it listed in 3 weeks. He updated us every step of the way and sent us weekly market reports so that we know the bigger picture. He was always responsive to the many questions we had, easily reachable by email or phone. He even watered the plants in the garden during the entire process as my mom moved out of the home already, even after his knee surgery! He was a strong negotiator. In the process of negotiating the deal, he listened to all the parties involved, guided us through the decision making process and communicated well with the buying agent and we were able to close well above the asking price! Steve is knowledgeable, patient, detail oriented, listens to your needs, and amazingly efficient! Steve is an awesome listing agent and we will use him again for our next sale!

    • Steve has a steady hand throughout the process of selling a home. He has so much experience that he is not caught by surprise. We made the correct decision to list with Steve.

      - Tim Tapping
    • Steve was great! I highly recommend him. All of his other reviews said that he was a great communicator and he was! He has a great knowledge of the market, and he and his team did an amazing job transforming my Mom's distressed house into an marketable asset. My family and I were able to get a lot more money from the house than we would have had we gone with a different agent. We were very happy with him, and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

      - Carrie Rawdon
    • We had bought our house with Steve 5 years ago, and when it came time for us to move, there was no question we would ask him to help us sell it- he was with us every step of the way, meeting with us in person, giving advice and making sure that things went smoothly- in the end we got far over our asking price! He is always available and very responsive, he is positive, and he knows this business

      - Carolyn Saylor
    • Steve was incredible from th get-go. Available for questions, great ideas on how and when to sell, shared useful stats to help my wife and I figure out what the market was like and calmed my nerves when things seemed up in the air. He also has a splendid crew of professionals that took great care in some minor upgrades before we put our home on the market. Even once we sold, he was able to reach out at each step and let us know what to expect. The clarity and care he takes in his work is very apparent and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and proven agent with a record for success. Thanks so much Steve for all of your work! We are grateful.

      - Ariana Cantu
    • Steve really knew what he was doing and is a very experienced local real estate agent. He had answers to all of our questions. He also had service people to meet every need that we had in getting our house ready for sale. The sale of our house was a very smooth process from listing to closing.

      - Debi Marble
    • Steve Laevastu gets my highest recommendation. I am an out of state seller and relied upon Steve for the full process. He was a great advocate for me. Steve truly enhanced value. The property was in an Estate and needed some work. Steve became the project manager and did all of the RIGHT THINGS to the home. Items that netted us well over a 100% rate of return. The before and after photos are amazing!Steve was very accessible during the whole process and did an outstanding job of communicating with me.Steve is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and a good guy to deal with.If you are thinking of selling your Seattle home you must call Steve Laevastu!

      - George Chelius
    • Steve's knowledge of our market is encyclopedic. He makes you feel like you have your finger on the pulse of the market, while also providing a historical context that is really amazing. There was never a moment when I felt like I wasn't in the most capable hands possible with Steve and I couldn't be more thankful for his assistance

      - Bryn Waibel
    • Steve is a real estate expert in every detail. From his initial consultation to the close at escrow, he and his team of professionals combined to make the home selling experience stress free and exciting. Landscape and interior updates with complimentary design and staging, made my home beautiful to prospective buyers. My home sold quickly, and above listing price. Steve's knowledge, experience, commitment, and personal service make him the realtor to team up with when selling a home.

      - Scott Anderson
