It was the first home I've ever bought so it was really confusing. I had a VA loan I wanted to use. Amy made it all make sense. From getting the mortgage loan to applying it to the house we wanted, to gathering paperwork to be able to be considered for the loan and getting things like title insurance, a home warranty, etc. Her and her team, helped with everything. She not only helped us get into our dream home, she helped us get into our home we will be able to call "home". My wife and I consider ourselves very lucky to have found her as a real estate agent. She is truly much more than a real estate agent. She is also a person we like to call a friend. Thank you again for helping us find our new home!
Odds are we will not be buying a house again for a long while but we will give you a call if that day ever comes. We will definitely pass on your name if we have friends that want to build or buy. We had an overall great, positive experience.
She has extensive knowledge of available real estate, ways to position a customer for the best deal, and which financial institutions are the best to work with. I highly recommend her for real estate services.
Amy has been very professional about everything. Met her husband and her son even! She did really good work for us and we're happy that she's done everything she has and she deserves everything she gets: and I mean that in a good way! We appreciate all your time and finally we're there! Everything came out great in the end(house had to have a brand new roof during escrow). Amy did more than she was supposed to and we do appreciate you, thank you!
We would definitely recommend Amy. We didn't know much about the areas and so we decided to hire a Realtor. We discovered her in a video online and she seemed cool so... Her video was about a new homeowner discussing a fire and lightning incident and we figured she had experience with newer homes. She was with us at the design center and inspections and the last month once everything started picking up she was on top of things. Especially when we couldn't get a hold of someone (at the builder) and asked her to try to get a hold of them and to get all of the information. It was helpful when we were at work and we couldn't drop things to be able to do it, so we called her to help . And she would get back to us and that gave us the sense of ok, someone knows what's happening. And now we have to move!
! Not only were you so tremendously helpful in finding our current home, but you’re still working for us by entertaining our dreams and keeping us informed! Thank you for all that you do!!!
I can't say enough about her help in answering all of my questions in a timely fashion whether in a call or text. She represented me very well in discussing the transaction with the seller's agent and I really appreciate all of the work that she's done for me, and I can't wait to move into my new home. Thank you very much!
From the beginning she was professional and honest, telling me exactly what I needed to do and providing a timeline to follow until my house went on the market. Amy answered every voice mail, email and text I sent asking questions and getting guidance along the way, always with a cheerful demeanor. She brought in an expert photographer to take photos and pre posted my house on multiple social media outlets prior to going on the MLS. Day one, Amy and Cities Real Estate hosted an Open House in my home and BOOM! My house had 6 offers day one!! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I definitely chose the BEST and would highly recommend Amy Steele and her team to anyone in need of a realtor!
I have many pleasant memories of spending time there with my family. I thought it would be a good idea to share that experience with my grandchildren by acquiring a cabin for my family so they could enjoy spending time in the mountains like I did when I was young. I started by looking for a realtor for the Lake Arrowhead area on the internet. I picked the first one that looked knowledgeable and professional. I sent an email to the site hoping to hear something back. My experience with websites is that often you never hear back from the company/person you are trying to contact. To my surprise the next morning I had a response. Amy Steele responded with a short introduction of herself and questions regarding my requirements for the property we wanted. We spent the next two months emailing back and forth. She would send listings so we could see what was available and we would comment about the positives and negatives of each. She always responded promptly and did an excellent job of filtering out properties that did not meet our criteria. Finally we decided to view the properties that met our needs and made the two hour trip to meet her and get a tour. We spent the day looking at places that she picked for us and we thought we would be happy with any of them. However, she saved the best for last. At the end of the day she showed us a property that we instantly knew was the one. Four days later we were in escrow. It has been over a year since we became the proud owners of our mountain home and we still do not have any regrets. Amy did a great job for us and we would not hesitate to use her again.
Your kind and loving patience during the last two years is beyond measure. I believe you truly knew what we were looking for in a house, located on the right side the mountain, with a rustic yard, private neighborhood and phenomenal view! We prayed to God for this house; and do you know, you brought us straight to it, at exactly the right time. It could not have been more divinely chosen for us. Thank you again for your professionalism and persistence in helping us realize our dream!
She met with us well before we were ready to list our home and gave us solid advice and listened carefully to our goals. When it came time to list she even offered a hand and personally assisted with painting. She sold our home quickly while displaying the upmost integrity, concern and attention to detail for all parties involved. Amy was also our agent for the purchase of our dream home. She negotiated well and worked very closely with our lender to keep everyone on track for a smooth closing. We are so thankful for Amy and her expertise, dedication and care. We highly recommend her and wouldn't dream of working with another agent.
She worked with us through several offers and the loan process. She was a great go-between and helped us to make sure everything was done in a timely manner. She didn't put any pressure or given unsolicited advice, but gave us the confidence to make a good decision. Thanks for helping us get a home!
People that we knew that saw them even said the house looked fantastic. People in the neighborhood, from Wisconsin, from work loved them. I liked the park and drone pictures too letting them know about the park because it opens it up. I didn't even know our neighborhood looked that nice! I think that the tips you gave us and advice about our bathroom and other things to do and not to worry about saved us time getting the house prepared and ready to go. The advertising and promotion was a very good thing, we had 32 people come to the open house. I was so nervous to sell my house before you came over I was shaking but you walked in and made me feel so comfortable that right there is very important. It's been 22 years since we bought or sold a house and so it's new for us, and to feel comfortable and confident is a big part of it. We also appreciate you giving us the referral for the agent in Michigan. You took the time to match us with an agent that had our likes and dislikes and really took the time to get to know us. Thank you again!
We had this property listed with two other agents over the past few years, with literally no active potential buyers, until we hired Amy to represent us. Soon thereafter, our property closed successfully, and we owe Amy our gratitude for her aggressive management and creative thinking to close this sale within 30 days!
The market was great but the Realtor was better!! She really does put her clients first!! Thank you for making our 2nd home buying/selling experience a FABULOUS one!
They were super professional, went above & beyond and were very detailed. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!
