“As a military member being posted to London, I was given a week for my house hunting trip, during which time I was expected to find and purchase a home. If I didn’t manage this, I would have had to organize a separate trip to London which would have involved travelling cross country multiple times . With the expert assistance of Steve Baarda I found and purchased a home in a single day, allowing me to enjoy the rest of my week visiting friends and family and enjoying London. As a first time home buyer this was an extremely positive experience and I have recommended Steve as a realtor to everyone I know who is looking to buy a home. When the demands of military life inevitably force me to move again, I will definitely by contacting Steve Baarda regarding selling the house he helped me buy. 10/10  thank you, Steve.”


“I think you would be hard pressed to find an agent who cares more than Steve.  At a home viewing, he cleaned up dog poop from the floor as he wished to spare the home owner the later embarrassment of discovering this following our viewing.  Steve was patient through multiple days of viewings.  We finally found the best fit for us.”


“My wife and I are very satisfied with Steve’s punctuality, his negotiations skills and his timely response to all our questions related to Real Estate.  We will not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone else.”

“Steve was an absolutely terrific buyer agent. He embodies all the reasons why it is a good idea to employ a buyer agent when trying to get a house: He takes away tedious and difficult tasks, made house visits seamless, dealt with the difficult negotiations, did extensive background research and provided us, clients, with lots of detailed information on the properties of interest. But the real reason why were so happy with Steve were the bits beyond the traditional agent role: he answered our endless questions timely, was patient with the fact that we didn’t quite know what we wanted, showed us houses to give us more context (and therefore a better idea of what we wanted), adapted himself to our wishes, and at no point did we have the impression he was working more for himself than for us. He was pleasant to communicate with and also recommended the best kind of house inspector one could wish for. In short, I would recommend him anytime to anyone, especially to those people who are skeptical about Realtors and their roles in the buying process. Thanks for the great work!”
