    Steve has been super helpful and friendly throughout the selling process! He made everything as easy as possible which I appreciate. As a first time home seller, Steve was there to answer any questions I had even though they may be very basic in context. I recommend Steve for your home buying or selling needs! Thank you Steve!

    Steve Black is the best real estate agent I had the pleasure to work with in my situation! As a first time home buyer, Steve made the process as easy as possible. He also assisted a family member of mine in the past who held him in high regard and I must say that I agree with their recommendation. Steve made the home buying process easy as possible and also answered any questions that I had which sometimes may seem as basic for someone who has not purchased a home before. 10 out 10 in my opinion for Steve! Highly recommended for my friends and family members!

    Steve has done it AGAIN! We told him what we were looking for and he found it. He negotiated so well that our offer beat all the others and we didn't overpay! If you are looking for a home, Steve will find it for you quickly and at the best price.

    Steve has been such a blessing to us. He has found us four income properties in the exact areas and price range we were asking for. He even used a technique in negotiating that caused us to outbid multiple offers without overpaying.

    Steve has been a pleasure to work with. He sold my home in Chandler quickly at a great price point. Steve has also helped us find investment properties and has a strategy that caused us to obtain 3 properties and beat multiple offers without overpaying. I highly recommend Steve to everyone who needs to purchase or sell a property in the Phoenix area. Steve knows the market well, he listens to his clients and only shows them properties that fit their requirements. He is always on time and one step ahead of the process.

    Shirley gave Steve 5 stars out of 5
    When you are ready to purchase your next home you should enlist the help of Steve Black to help get the job done! Steve knows his stuff, has a great laid back style, and quickly feels like a partner in the real estate process. He listened to our questions and provided answers in a timely fashion. He negotiated with the sellers to address all our concerns throughout the buying process. As we are moving to Arizona from out of state, our in person time was very limited so most of the business was conducted by email, phone calls, and text. Steve is very responsive and was available to us day and night. We are so glad our son and daughter in law recommended Steve and it is our pleasure to recommend Steve to you!

    Tom gave Steve 5 stars out of 5
    As a retired REALTOR, I have very high expectations when I hire a REALTOR to work for me. To put it plainly, Steve Black by far exceeded my expectations! I phoned and left messages for several agents. Steve Black called back promptly, while some never returned the call at all. Steve worked up and emailed me properties to look at as we chatted on the phone. Some took 5 days to do the same 5 minute job. Since we're buying a second home from 3 states away, Steve previewed a property of interest, snapped additional photos, and found answers to various questions. Based on his superior service, we were able to make an offer, get acceptance, and then travel to Apache Junction to see the home. Once there, we released our inspection contingency and moved forward with the purchase. Steve is a friendly, outgoing guy, offering exceptional service, and absolutely no pushy sales pitches. I highly recommend Steve Black whether you're buying or selling a home.

    Anita gave Steve 5 stars out of 5
    We live in Illinois and were recently looking to find a home in Arizona. Steve met with us and we described what we were looking for and that we only had a short time to find it since we were there for only a week. Steve wasted no time in finding a large list of homes for us to look at. He found houses exactly as we asked for and we found what we wanted the first day because of his attention to detail. Steve was wonderful and he helped us with every step of the process. I would recommend Steve to anyone that is looking to buy a house. Steve is the best!

    Cecilia gave Steve 5 stars out of 5
    Prior to the sale of my home, Steve set me up with automatic emails showing new listings with all the criteria I wanted in a new home. This was so helpful. Before we went house hunting, Steve drove by several properties to see if they were as shown in the photos. This saved a lot of time and trouble. He helped me by negotiating with the sellers' agent for a fair price. Steve worked hard to get the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home to close simultaneously without a glitch. I highly recommend and he has my loyalty!

    Cecilia gave Steve 5 stars out of 5
    I purchased an older home on a very busy street. I thought I would have a difficult time selling. Steve was not only able to sell the home within a couple of months, but it sold for more than I purchased it for. At the time I listed my home with Steve, he set me up with automatic updates of homes to purchase. This was absolutely wonderful. The sale of my property and the purchase of my new home went through without a glitch! I have bought and several homes in the past. Steve made this transaction the best experience I've ever had. I absolutely love my new home! I highly recommend Steve and Karon. My loyalty is with this team!

    I found Steve very professional. He made my house buying experience seamless and was very responsive to any questions in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to any of my family or friends who are or will be embarking on buying a home. He took the time to explain to me step by step how the process works in an easy to understand format. With this the process followed as Steve explained and now am the owner of a beautiful home

    Hi, I was very impressed all the way around with Steve Black. He had the right attitude, a perfect blend of warmth and friendliness coupled with dedication and staying on top of things. He answered all of my questions promptly, and was only a phone call away. It had been several years since my last home purchase. So much had changed! But I found Steve to be very open, easy to approach, and he guided us through the entire process. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who seeks a Realtor with experience and dedication. He has the old school work ethic, great customer service skills and "gets the job done". Thank you, Steve. We love our new home. Lynn Krusemark

    I rather leaped into using Steve after having purchased this and another home again. At first I felt a little foolish for not have researched other salesmen. I was pleasantly relieved when everything turned out so well. I would recommend Steve to any home seller.

    Steve has been most helpful in guiding us to homes that would suit our needs. Even though most of our relationship has been through email and on the phone, we were confident in Steve's choices of homes that would work for us, so when we did come to town, our time was well spent. He was gracious as he worked with our daughter-in-law, who acted as our proxy until we could get to Phoenix.

    You will be 100% happy if you choose Steve Black as your realtor. My husband and I live in Northern California but we knew we wanted to find a home in the Mesa/Fountain Hills/Scottsdale area, We didn't know any realtors in the area. We found Steve online and I sent him an email. He responded quickly, we talked and from that moment on until, and even after, our house closed Steve was absolutely fantastic. He and his wife Karon, who works with him, walked us through every conceivable step of buying a home. From showing us properties (and they never once tried to show us properties we couldn't afford or that didn't meet our needs), to negotiating a great deal, to helping us with financing and inspections and all the details involved in purchasing a home. We were kept informed and updated on every aspect. We completely trust Steve and can't thank him enough for his thorough professionalism, expertise, patience and willingness to go above and beyond for his clients.

    My brother and I recently lost our Mother. As you can imagine, it was a very stressful time for us. Fortunately however, when it came time to sell her house we met Steve Black. Not only was he very understanding of our situation, we found him to be a highly professional and very smart realtor. He knows his business. He kept us fully informed throughout the selling process even personally meeting with us several times. He made a difficult time for us so much easier. If you should ever need a realtor call the best....call Steve. You won't be disappointed.

    Steve was AMAZING to work with. He is very patient, I think my husband and I asked him the same questions 3 TIMES (only because we would forget) and every time he explained it without any problems. His Wife Karon is the BEST too, my husband and I were never surprised during the entire process because they explained everything that we should expect. I would recommend Steve to all of my friends and family members.

    This is the Realtor you want on your team. Steve is there helping at every milestone of the entire home buying process. He is loyal to the customer, listens to what you want, and will give you the feed back you need to make the best decision possible for your home. There is not a better realtor out there that I could, or would recommend based off my experience and prior experience with other realtors. I was lucky to enlist his team to be on my side and I hope that you find yourself fortunate to have him on your team!!

    Steve was an excellent agent leading us through the seemingly endless puzzle of paperwork. His suggestions on presentation to improve the customers view of the house were very helpful. His evaluation of the home, detailed online description with many pictures helped buyers to visualize our home prior to them stepping across the threshold. His market knowledge helped set the price accurately, he kept us updated in a timely manner on exactly what was happening with our house from the time he walked in our front door to turning over keys to the new owners. He looked out for our best interests with recommendations in preparation for listing, listing, negotiation details and then the sale of our home. I have no reservations in recommending Steve to anyone who is buying or selling property.

He worked together with the loan company to make sure all of the lenders requirements were met and I got the house I wanted. He kept me updated about what was going on all of the time. The entire home-buying process from viewing the property to receiving the keys went through without a hitch. I cannot recommend Steve and his team highly enough. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

    Steve is incredibly personable, highly responsive, pays attention to detail, and has excellent follow-up skills. We have been looking to downsize for more than a year and just "happened" upon Steve when he was the listing agent of a home in Desert Ridge. He, by far, exemplifies what we were looking for in a Realtor. No high pressure or unsolicited suggested listings, etc. In fact, we have been so pleased with his expertise that he is also the listing agent on our current home (just closed escrow on the new place) and will handle both the selling and purchasing efforts for our daughter and son-in-law.

    Steve and his wife, Karen, are an amazing team that helped us get our house sold and find a beautiful home to move into. They pay attention to detail and helped us negotiate some extras on our new home that make it just what we wanted. : )

    Words are not adequate to describe the level of confidence and professionalism we experienced with Steve. From the initial meeting to even following up with us once we were in the house. His attention to detail is exceptional and a real asset. We feel that Steve has restored our view (not so good) of realtors. So if you have a way to clone Mr. Black - I would highly recommend it. Please convey the Costlow's greatest appreciation to Steve.

    I would absolutely recommend Steve as an agent. His response time is great and his attention to detail is wonderful. He is not only extremely knowledgable in his field, but also very pleasant to work with. He went above and beyond for us in our home buying experience.

    Steve was GREAT to work with. His response time when I asked to see a home was almost immediate. Always researched the home prior to my viewing and gave me all the pros and cons based on what's he knew I wanted. He helped us get the home we wanted and negotiated an awesome deal for us! Will definitely use him again!

    Steve was very knowledgeable and extremely fast to respond to any and all questions I had. And although he may have just been being honest with me regarding the realities of the local market, I never felt that he was negotiating with the sellers on my behalf. Steve only had to show us one home, and there were times that I was left with the impression that he was more interested in closing the sale than getting me the best deal possible.

    Brett, I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my services. The reality of this market is that it is a sellers market right now due to our historically low inventory levels. This home had multiple offers on it (one of which was a cash backup offer) and the sellers were investors. They were not willing to negotiate on the price or repairs, as it was an "as is" sale. The "deal" is that in the end, you got the house that you wanted, which was the best one out there for the price, and ended up getting it for 5K less than contract due to the appraisal. The financing issues that were encountered during this transaction were very difficult as the sellers were charging a daily per diem charge for every day that we did not close on time and were unwilling at first to give us any extensions. It was through my negoitating with them on your behalf, that allowed the deal to close and you be living in a great home. Had they not granted us an extension when we failed to close on time, they could have issued a cure notice and cancelled the deal. At that point, you would have been out of pocket for the appraisal and the inspection fees with no recourse. I was able to avoid this on your behalf. I take great pride in helping all of my clients to not only negoitate the best deal, but most importanly, to obtain the home that they want even in this difficult market. I can understand how difficult it is to fully realize our market here and what is going on, especially when moving here from another state where the markets are much different. I hope you understand, and it was a pleasure working with you. Sincerely, Steve Black Zip Realty

    Steve is amazing. We've looked at many houses in different areas and knew so much about each location. He made himself available at all times and let us know that if we need anything or have a question don't hesitate to call him. He also was able to by reassure me through the home buying process everything was going great and that the house would be ours. He also put us in contact with great tradesman to help us with things around the house. In the future, I will have Steve be my realtor again and would recommend him to all my friends and family. Thank you Steve!!!!
