  • Steve listed and sold my home

      This review is based on a business transaction where Steve represented both buyers and sellers. Me being the seller have never in my life had to deal with someone as stubborn and unhelpful as Steve. I’ve worked at a Real Estate and a title company for 12 years awhile back so I understood how the process worked. We found Steve in the Korean directory and since he had so many ads about his extensive knowledge in E2 transactions and his many years of experience we decided to give him a call. After the initial meeting everything just went downhill from there. After we signed the agreement form we parted ways and was told they would contact me once the listing has been taken care of. I check the next day to make sure it was up (I advised them I was in a rush) and it was… as vague as can be. First off they had no pictures at all. Second the address was shown on there which we specifically told them we did not want to do. Whats the point of signing a NDA when you have the address listed? Then we get into a bit of an argument because supposingly SFARMLS.COM is not a website that SF realtors use for commercial listings. Why would they have over 50 SF commercial listings on that site if that were true? Any agent that lists a commercial listing will of course put it into MLS and after several emails back and forth he finally put it on. Oh, they didn’t even bother putting it up on Craigslist either until I had to ask them to do so. About a month and half goes by and we’ve had people that were interested come by and take a look at the place and not once did the agent ever come to answer any questions. To make my review short it just kept getting worse and worse. I asked him a number of times to show up when a potential buyer will arrive (even if the same buyer came back 2 even 3 times), but he always had an excuse why he could never show up. Both the buyers and I are located in San Francisco, but he chooses to pick an escrow company in San Jose for some odd reason and he wanted us to drive 45 minutes away to sign papers. Until this day I don’t have a clue why he would do that (maybe he gets a commission from his friend I don’t know). There are so many escrow companies located right here in the city and because he chooses one 45 minutes away from both parties our escrow gets delayed… again. My opinion about Steve is that he is all about money. He tells the buyers in the beginning before I met with them that if they were to finance the purchase price will be $20k more than what is advertised. I asked him about it and he advised that if they have any questions to just call him directly… strange right? I was thinking maybe he wanted to make some side money and that he would lend them the money and take the $20k in interest? Who knows… 3 months after signing the purchase contract with the buyers he encourages the buyers to do an inspection with the health department right before closing (by law they have to do it within 60 days per our contract). My real estate agent encourages the buyers to do a health inspection that can blow the deal a few days before escrow is ready to close. I asked him to at least please be at the health inspection because there will be a lot of things to go over and we needed help. Steve again made an excuse and said that he has never seen a business not sell due to a health inspection... ummm the buyers didn't buy a business before ours because the health inspector required too much in improvements so they backed out. I told him that as well, but he still insisted he didn't want to be there. Here is the funny part… they wait until the ABC license transferred to schedule for the health inspector to do their initial inspection! I had told my friend who is also an agent and he just plain out laughed. In my opinion as well as the buyers think that Steve has this personality and vibe that makes a person feel very uncomfortable. Definitely not what you want to feel when dealing with something as important as buying or selling a business or home. The buyers did not want to work with Steve just as much as I did not want to. We felt as if we were bothering him if we were to ask him a simple question so we just kept him out the loop and handled what we could between us directly. You can take this review however way you feel since he does have 3 other positive reviews. Both parties in this transaction were very shocked when we reread those reviews… do we have the right person? Throughout this whole transaction from when we first signed with him all the way through the close of escrow I’ve only seen him 1 time. To tell you the truth if I walked past him in the streets I wouldn’t even recognize him. He wasn’t even present to hand the keys over or to congratulate us in person when escrow closed. Shouldn’t you at least be there in person at the end when everything is done? Thank you Steve... I hope you really have a good time with the commission check you received and for the hard times you have put us through.

    • Steve helped me buy a home

        Buying a new home was a huge decision for us, and we truly started from square 1 without knowing what we wanted nor in which city. Steve patiently guided us through the whole process, never once rushing us and always taking the time to thoroughly answer our questions. We were impressed by how knowledgeable he is of the nuances of different cities, and most of all, by how he took the extra effort to make sure we found a home we could build happy memories in, that was right for us. We could not be happier with the care we received!
