Steven Spiro

    • Ilda and her husband Steve Spiro were very easy to work with. They were the broker for a home we recently purchased. They are honest, communicative and take the trouble to explain details when needed.

      - Gayathri Srinivasan - Aliso Viejo
    • Steve was my real estate agent who helped me make, and complete, a purchase of a home contingent on the sale of my old house. His knowledge and experience helped us easily navigate a confusing process. I appreciate his ability to game plan numerous outcomes, make recommendations on what paths to take, and make me feel empowered to make the final decision on what's best for my family

    • To Whom It May Concern,TONY MATERNA1228 14th Street, #201Santa Monica, California 90404tony_ materna@hotmail. com(818) 613-7600It is my great pleasure to recommend to you Steve Spiro.Steve recently led the transaction to successfully complete the short sale of my late mother'shouse. Despite the property's selling price being $60,000 less than all the debts on it, Stevemanaged to get three of the lienholders to take less than was obligated, and still have $10,500 leftover at the closing for the estate. It was a virtuoso performance. I am so thankful he introducedhimself to us and ever grateful for all the effort and hard work he applied to make it happen.Steve is everything everyone says about him. He is a consummate professional and a superbnegotiator. He is thoughtful, responsive and tenacious. He is supremely knowledgeable and wasalways in control of the sales process. He pays particular attention to the details. There wereseveral serious obstacles to overcome, yet Steve remained calm, confident and determined,knocking each one down in tum until there was nothing left to stop the sale from closing.I consider myself most fortunate to have had Steve as our real estate broker and anyone facing ashort sale situation, or even a routine real estate sale, will also be glad to have Steve on theirteam.Sincerely,

      - Tony Materna - Santa Monica, California
    • My wife and I recently moved to Arizona and needed to sell our condo in OC quickly, so we could getmoving on buying our home here in Phoenix. I like things to be clean, simple and direct, so when SteveSpiro was recommended to us because of his ability to get things done, I was thrilled by the opportunityto work with someone who knew what they were doing and could be trusted to take care of business.This was especially important since we were hundreds of miles away and had to trust that our agentwould be on top of things. Not only was Steve on top of things, but he was always available to answer allmy questions quickly and was always honest and to the point. We sold our home quickly I can't imagineanyone else having a easier and more positive experience selling their home than we did with Steve'shelp. I guarantee if someone asks me who they should contact to help them sell or buy a home inOrange County, I will tell them Steve Spiro is the man!

    • Steve was invaluable with his expertise, in helping us complete our sales transaction at the Coronado Cays. We highly recommend him as a very knowledgeable Broker.

      - Dr. and Mrs. Berge Dadourian - Coronado, California
    • To prospective clients,Who do you call when you have an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy a short sale house at 100K less than market value, but you want to sell your current property to avoid cashing investments in a bear market for the down payment?and all this must be completed in 30 days? You call Steve Spiro. Because Steves experience and methodical approach can give you the ?miracle? you need. He did it for us. We have worked with perhaps a dozen realtors over the years, but none approaches Steve in experience, tenacity and detailed, methodical planning. ?One step at a time,? he would calmly say, while closing the deal even before other buyers were aware of it. He pursued all aspects to make the sale-purchase? from finding a lender to ensuring there were always backups if a step failed. Steve gave us total commitment. If it sounds like we cant say enough good things about Steve its because we cant. He is honest, forthright, but tough if you happen to be on the opposite side of the negotiating table. Before he begins, he studies every aspect of the market, knows what the realistic numbers are, and puts things together.If you want a successful real estate sale or purchase, get Steve on your side. Theres no one better.

    • Dear Steve:We both want to thank you so much for your professionalism and courtesy in helping to make a dream come true. Ive had the opportunity to work with many realtors in the past and you hardly seem to be in the same class with most. I very much appreciate your knowledge, insights, negotiating skills, and kindness that you extended to us. It didnt take you long to narrow the market to the choices best suited to us. Its clear that your years of experience, keen sense of awareness, and people skills put you heads above most others in your profession. I felt at all times as if you were truly OUR advocates and wanted the best deal for US and felt very comfortable trusting you. Im also impressed with your timely responses to our phone calls/e-mails and how all of our questions were quickly and correctly answered. And thanks for helping to arrange better financing than I could have ever done on my own. I would recommend your services to anyone. We both wish you well and continued success. You are truly a unique individual in your profession. A heartfelt thank you for everything.Fondly:

    • Letter of RecommendationWe first met Steve Spiro from an open house for sale in Laguna Niguel (The Tesero Neighborhood) a few months ago and have become to get to know him much better as he represented us for the purchase of our home on Crown Royale. As such, we were working very closely throughout the negotiation process so as to finalize the sale price of the property. As was expected, Steve was highly dedicated to his profession, well-versed knowledge on details of property transactions, delivering excellent service throughout the beginning to the end of the purchase of our home in a timely manner. Steve is a man of personal integrity, highly ethical and trustworthy. Moreover, he always makes himself available whenever we need him and finally Steve is willing to provide us with all the community related information (such as club house and property maintenance services, etc) to facilitate our settlement with new environment as fast as possible. It is indeed our pleasure that we recommend Steve Spiro who is unquestionably one of the best realtors weve had ever known. We certainly look forward to a long personal relationships with Steve for years to come.

    • I HIGHLY recommend Steve, Ilda, and Maritime Properties team to buy or sell your home. Steve helped my husband and I short sale our home and purchase a new home. Through the process he was ALWAYS available by phone and email even late at night. Steve made sure to take care of my husband and I always looking out for our best interest. Steve has been up front and told us what to expect through the whole process making the experience smooth and not stressful. I also can appreciate how patient Steve and Ilda are and giving us their opinions and ideas. We love our new home. Thank you, Steve!

    • To Whom it may concern:It was my luckiest day when I ran into Steve while I was looking one of the open houses.He stopped me with big smile on his face as I was leaving the open house and asked me what are myconcerns and wondering if he could be the part of my home research. I asked him some randomquestions without much expectations and I came home. I was stunned when I saw his longcomforting answers to most of my questions within an hour. I was also impressed about hisinformative answers on every questions, prompt on delivery , patience and calmness. I didnthesitate to ask him to be my agent.I sincerely thank him the time he spent selecting houses with pros and cons after his delicate reviews.His idea was more than helpful and provided me a new perspective on available homes.He helped me to sell my house for better than the best price and to buy my current home for the lowestpossible price.I had to move alone at the time of moving day.

    • Dear Steve,Lyn and I are now fully settled in our magnificent new home and it is time to put on paper how we feel about our experience with you.We have been through three transactions together, over the last year and a half. You sold two properties for us and then helped us find and buy our present home. None of the transactions was easy and, frankly, I dont know where we would have been without you. You have been our guide and mentor and avid supporter and pillar of strength. My wifes therapist. The most patient person I have ever encountered.I dont know when you sleep. You were always there, on top of everything. No question or concern of ours was too trivial for your immediate attention. I am sure you have other clients I know you do yet it always felt like we were the only people in your life.It wasnt just business. You took us through emotional ups and downs. You helped us always to understand what was happening, or why it wasnt. You stuck with us through our stubbornness, but you were always clear and firm about what we should be doing at all times.After we sold our previous home of almost 30 years, and had to find a new house in a hurry to avoid moving twice, you showed us a few homes and judged our reactions. You learned in a matter of a day what we were really looking for. You showed us a specific house that we had actually seen before and not been impressed with. Lyn was not crazy about it. But you knew what we wanted. You almost had to force her to see it again the next day, but you managed to get us there again and this time Lyn fell in love with it. You helped us buy it, and thats where we are now, to our total delight.Even after each closing, you have stayed with us, helping us deal with the incredibly difficult buyers of our old home and the challenges of getting everything sorted out in our new home. With you, there is no such thing as closing the deal and moving on. You have been at our side until every little kink has been ironed out, providing your own time and effort and resources. Now we absolutely love our beautiful new home, and will enthusiastically recommend you to anyone we possibly can.Thank you so much!

    • I would like to give a hearty recommendation to Steve Spiro and his excellent Real Estate services. I havehad the pleasure of doing business with him on 2 occasions now, and on both occasions he has providedboth leasing services as well as listing and selling my properties. He is extremely thorough and takes careof everything, to the point that I can honestly say I trust him completely to have my best interest in mindthrough the entire process. He is a true professional and I will definitely use him again should the needarise. Not to mention, he is a very nice person and a pleasure to do business.Sincerely,

    • I am very grateful to have Steve Spiro as my real estate agent. I live in northern California and Stevehelped me buy a house in southern California. It is my first time buying a house. I am excited but alsonervous because I dont have a clue what to do. But Steve was there to guide me every step of the way.He explained every process to me and answered all my questions. He arranged the home inspectionand other things in a timely manner. He checks in with my lender for updates on the appraisal and myloan approval. He handled the coordination with the escrow officer and made sure they haveeverything they need. He gave me updates everyday so I know whats happening that day and what toexpect next. He made sure I understand all the documents before signing them. We did everythingelectronically (by e-mail, text or phone call). Being 400 miles away makes it a little difficult to meet inperson but everything went smoothly. I still cant believe that we got the house. We were selected outof more than 20 offers, some of which are cash offers. Steve did his magic. He obviously knows whathes doing. I highly recommend him.

    • Steve was truly remarkable. He was incredibly professional and went far beyond the call of duty. Steve has unbelievable negotiation skills and really makes sure that you, the client, get the best possible deal. You can reach Steve 24/7. Maritime Properties far exceeded any expectations we had. He made us feel that we were the only house that he was handling, which in fact we knew was not the case. I highly recommend Steve. We are currently using Maritime Properties to sell another property and to find us our new dream home. We have 100% faith he will get us the best possible deals both when selling our home but also when buying our new home.Ilda works with Steve and stages the home so you end up getting multiple offers. This is one team that is hard to beat.
