If I could I would give Stephen 10-stars. Stephen waited patiently for over two years to get me into the perfect home. He facilitated my first home buying experience, and it was for purely personal reasons that I took so long for me to settle on a home. I was very particular about my first home, and Stephen was kind, patient, and more than generous with his time. He provided me with the tools, knowledge, and his expert advice which has been earned through years and years of working the Portland area, to help me make my own decision. Stephen would be available to me to show a home or meet with me at the drop of a hat- every single time. His customer service skill are fantastic.
Stephen is extremely knowledgeable about the Portland area real estate market. He has done research on, and carefully watches community changes in, all of the neighborhoods within the City. He made recommendations after listening to exactly what I was looking for.
When I knew I was ready and found what was right for me, Stephen not only acted professionally, quickly, and with ease, but advocated for me 100% of the time. He continuously kept me informed of all the details of the home-buying process. When things got rough with my purchase with some unforeseen complications, he stood up for me and told me his honest advice when I asked for it. He treated me not as a financial stepping-stone, but he treated me like a family member. I cannot say that I could ever had expected my real estate agent to spend 2+ hours on the phone with me on a Friday night walking me through each step of daunting paperwork.
I absolutely cannot say enough positive things about Mr. Sekora. I would recommend him to all my friends and family (and have been doing so already), and frequently rave about how lucky I was to come across him.
Without the assistance of him, I would certainly have either become overwhelmed and frustrated, and/or likely purchased the wrong home.
I working with Stephen, I know I have found a solid home, for a good price, and one that I will continue to have confidence in.
