He was great! We visited so many houses and he always was extremely informed of the conditions of the properties well in advance. He was available for us when we had any questions at all times. His experience and knowledge of homes is extensive and most valuable to us during our search. He is a great man.

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.

Steve is amazing. He is wonderful to work with, always available and doesn't treat being a real estate agent as a hobby, it is his full time job. He was in constant communication with us a we went thru the process of purchasing our home. No question was too small and he researched anything he didn't have an immediate answer to. Great laughs along the way ending with us getting a great home. Thanks, Steve.

Steve knows a lot more about how houses are built than most realtors. This was very helpful for my situation. He can walk through a house with you and tell you a ballpark of what would likely need to be done in the next five years. He is also very easy to get on the phone, and will treat you like your his only client. He is a principal broker and will do everything in his power to keep his client from getting into hot water.

Stephen Ssekora is an absolute professional in every aspect of The Real Estate profession. He is also a very kind, caring person. We could not be more pleased with his performance and knowledge. If Steve is your agent you can rest assured you are in the best of hands. We reside in California and he was so helpful with the purchase of our new home in Portland.

Steve was amazing. As first time buyers, we weren't quite sure what to expect. We learned a ton and I doubt anyone else would have been so dedicated. He was quick to respond when we had questions and did an excellent job coordinating home visits- we saw almost 50 homes. I was very picky and in the end, we found the perfect house. Perfect! We couldn't have done it without Steve!

Stephan is an exceptional real estate agent. Very knowledgeable, extremely detail orientated, ethical and professional. Stephen was our agent when we purchased our new home and we were so impressed we asked him to be the selling agent when we sold our previous home. Stephen is absolutely wonderful to work with. Kept us totally informed every step of the way in both of our transactions and was always available. If we had to leave a message, he always returned it very promptly. We would highly recommend Stephen to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.

Stephen was phenomenal! He went above and beyond what we expected a realtor to do. He helped us get all the inspections lined up which made it an easy process for us. He was in constant communication with us and the lender as we made it through an unexpectedly rough underwriting process. The sellers were also greatly impressed with Stephen and his care in making sure they were kept up to date on how thing were progressing as well. They even began referring any questions they had to Stephen rather than their own agent! His attention to detail combined with his knowledge of every step in the buying and selling process was very impressive. We are preparing our former home to put on the market soon and we will be asking Stephen to be our selling agent. We would highly recommend Stephen to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. 6 Stars!

We found Stephen to me a great match for us in both buying and selling our houses. We were so thankful to have connected with him and his help in working through both the buying and selling process was invaluable - it was refreshing to have a realtor in which we could place our complete trust to do his best for us. I will be passing his name to every one I know who is considering a realtor. He is the best!

I was a renter that was being priced out of the renters market. Stephen assisted me in my original search for a single family home however I was consistently being out bid. I ultimately changed my strategy to a condominium search and was able to find and purchase a perfect fit. Through this entire process Stephen was right there with me with his professionalism, diligence and patience in my search. He kept me informed through issues so that I could make informed decisions. I would recommend Stephen to anyone looking for real estate.

Steve was tireless in our search for the perfect house for us-and we found one! As first time house buyers we appreciated his overall knowledge in house maintenance, area, and potential issues good and bad that we might be facing in the future of a potential property. I really appreciated is ability and willingness to answer our many questions by phone or email day or night.

My husband and I have bought and sold 8 houses in our 30 years together. We've never had a realtor as detail-oriented and proactive as Stephen Sekora. I found him on the internet but chose him after a phone conversation where he showed himself to be amazingly knowledgeable and eager to show us any house that met our requirements. Our home purchase was complicated and Stephen never lost sight that we were his clients and put all his considerable negotiating skills to work in our favor. Secondly, he is extremely well-spoken, and I appreciated that he always kept me abreast of every detail of our transaction. When we buy our next house, I'll call Stephen Sekora!

Stephen was amazing to work with. His enthusiasm to get us into the perfect house matched our own. He went above and beyond what we expected. He thinks of every detail, many of which we never considered. We almost thought he was too good to be true, but he certainly proved he is that good. He was diligent in keeping us informed the minute any news came in. And in a few instances where we would have compromised, he didn't let us, and he made sure we got everything we wanted. He worked really well with the other players involved. And he's incredibly personable. We felt like we'd known him for years. Extremely knowledgeable. We highly recommend Stephen. We've had friends and family ask how we managed to have such a smooth house buying experience... Easy answer? We had the great fortune to have Steve on our side.

I moved to Portland without knowing where I am going to live. If not for Stephen's dedication to help me find my house I would still be residing in the hotel. From start to finish he was with me to close on the house. Stephen has a positive attitude which helps in stressful times when trying to negotiate the best deal. I would recommend him to anybody who is looking to purchase the house.

Stephen had the difficult task of locating a home for us that we would be using as a rental for our son. Our son's preferences kept evolving as well as our own, so Stephen's patience and perseverance was sorely tested. He passed the test with flying colors. He stuck with us and helped us negotiate the purchase of a nice home that suited our needs. I would highly recommend him to others and would look to him in the future as needed. Thanks, Stephen, for all of your hard work!

Stephen dedicated himself to find the perfect house for me that met my criteria for size, soundness, design and price...and he succeeded. I wanted to move before the end of my school's winter break. He guided me through the whole process; as a result, I closed 31 days after my offer was accepted. Stephen performed his job with integrity and expertise. He worked many more hours than I could have reasonably expected. By the time he met me to turn the house over, he had become more like a trusted friend than a business associate. I have already referred several friends to him and will continue to do so with absolute confidence.

Working with Steve was a delightful experience, beginning to end. We've bought and sold a lot of homes over the years and never before encountered an agent that "knew their stuff" and stayed on top of things at a level that even came close to what we experienced with Steve. And it sure didn't hurt that he's just a fun and entertaining guy to spend time with.

I was a first time homebuyer, and from the start, Mr. Sekora made me feel comfortable, and secure through this process. Mr. Sekora was professional, extremely knowledgeable, and a great teacher. As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions, not only did he answer my questions he made sure that I was a well informed consumer. From the start Mr. Sekora encouraged me to ask questions and play an active role in the home buying process. He was honest, and always displayed integrity in his work. Mr. Sekora paid attention to the details and would selflessly give me the information I needed to make the best decision for my family. Mr. Sekora is extremely dedicated to the home buying process and dedicated to his clients. It was an honor to have a well-rounded and knowledgeable realtor working with me!

It was a long hard road to purchase this Foreclosure property and I had a ton of problems with the bank dropping the ball, but I knew that I could always count on Stephen. Stephen always made sure that when it was needed I had the proper addendums and that they were worded properly so that there was little to no chance that I would loose my earnest money. At the end we both thought that I was going to loose the house and Stephen really stepped up and put the heat on the bank to get their act together to make the Fannie Mae deadlines. The only thing that Stephen needs to do is slow down a bit before he gives himself a heart attack. I really appreciated his dedication at all hours of the day and night. I have purchased two other homes in the past 12 years and by far he is the best Realtor I have had.

I would highly reccomend steve to anybody buying or selling a home in todays market.

What more can one ask as a Buyer. Integrity, attention to detail, trust, firm conceptual grasp on our interest. Steve Sekora consistently is sensitive, supportive of any arrangements - his direction of right choices for us. Is why we are using Zip Reality instead of Century21 or ReMax. We will pass it along to family and friends when his style is needed for them. We know - we have had 3 other agents. Impressive Agent ! Mark/Lyone Critser Beaverton, OR
