Representing and Respecting You and Your Home.  Built on a Tradition of Trust

I knew Steven personally and liked his way of interacting with people. I felt this would be a plus and it was. I also had neighbors land other local acquaintances who gave him high ratings as a broker.

Any “bump in the road” Steven handled it quickly and efficiently. He was on top of things from start to finish.

Would recommend Steven Girvin without any hesitation and would work with him again, if the situation presents itself.

Mary Ellen O’Brien, Loudonville (Seller)

Steven Girvin is a true professional who helped me through the process of purchasing my new property. I appreciated his guidance in helping me with my purchase. His advice about looking at comparable properties, submitting multiple offers on the property and drawing up a contract for the purchase of the property were right on. Steven’s communication skills were excellent, he was prompt with his responses and always found out the answers to my questions. He was there for me, even at the walk through and the closing. I have already mentioned to my family and friends that Steven did an outstanding job as my real estate agent and I would highly recommend him to them. Steven has become a friend who made my dream come true! Working with Steven Girvin was a pleasure and a lot of fun.

Joan Pebbles, Niskayuna (Buyer)

Steven Girvin has been there for us throughout the whole process, and even after closing. He is very knowledgeable and has guided us when we needed direction. He is a nice person and also very thorough and trustful in work. I admire his dedication.

I will highly recommend Steven for anyone who wants to find the right home for them.

Sukwon Hong (Buyer)

Steven made the entire process seamless. He made recommendations to assist him in the staging of an empty property, added door wreaths, an American flag to the front of the property. When showing the property made suggestions for updating the kitchen and enlarging baths and promoted the wooded property.

His enthusiasm for the profession is evident as is his professionalism, character and engaging personality. His dealings with prospective buyers was professional and knowledgeable. He guided us through the selling and closing process seamlessly.

I most certainly would recommend Steven to others!

Carol Criscione, 74 Cheshire Way, Loudonville (Seller)

Steven is the consummate professional and hardworking real estate agent. Of the agents we interviewed to sell our house, he was the only one that volunteered upfront to both stage our house with quite a lot of furnishings and run an open house (himself, not run by a rookie agent) the first week it was on the market. He gave great guidance on some repairs we could we could do to make our house more attractive to buyers, as well as taking it upon himself to do some of the simpler repairs that we weren’t in town to do ourselves. We wanted to make we had a contract to sell our house quickly (within a month) so Steven was more than happy to list the house at a competitive price we suggested, which was lower than his initial market analysis. All told, Steven’s thorough marketing, great suggestions, and beautiful staging brought us two offers within three weeks. In the end we wound up closing at a higher price than we thought we would! (As a side note – our final sales price was higher that what other agents wanted to initially list our property at - so Steven definitely wasn’t interested in making a quick sale at our expense.) Thanks Steven!

Steven listed and sold the home that my parents had lived in for 40+ years. He made great suggestions about how to stage the home, helped us set a price and managed expectations throughout the process. He worked closely with prospective buyers and their agents - and kept us informed throughout the negotiating process. Within less than six weeks we had accepted an offer that met expectations. Steven was incredibly helpful with the estate resolution process, referring consummate professionals to assist with preparing the home for the new owners. I would recommend Steven to anyone considering buying or selling a property.

We listed a "dated" 50 year old house with Steve in an upscale neighborhood. He established an asking price and made some low cost suggestions regarding how to prepare the house for sale. After hosting several open houses, he secured a legitimate offer within several months for exactly the amount we expected. Communications were always great and exceptionally professional. We were basically "hands-off" and left the negotiations up Steve. He handled all the details and fought for us when, given it's age, some of the expectations of the eventual buyers exceeded the condition of the house. His service was worth every penny and then some.
