WHAT SOME OF MY CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY:
I first met Steve through our business networking group during a presentation he made about Real Estate and the current market environment. I knew he would be the person I would want helping us when we were ready to downsize from our larger Calabasas home (2 story) to a one story home. He was patient in the search for the right one story, which took about a year, and was on top of every detail including beautiful brochures (pictures by Wendy his wife - - top notch), Brokers Caravan, Open House, and our home was in escrow within one week of going on the market! He was even able to help us with a concurrent closing on our existing sales and the new one story we purchased in Agoura which we love! He also was the Realtor for the sale of my parents townhome and they are happily living 2 miles from us in a retirement community, Meadowbrook (Agoura), which they love! We highly recommend Steve who is really on top of every detail and was a pleasure to deal with. - LG, Calabasas, CA
He was so patient with us over a year as we tried to get a loan modification done and after that was done we rented our home for a year and at the end of that year we FINALLY chose to sell. He was right on top of everything. He and his talented wife took incredible pictures and staged our home to look amazing. Our home sold without a hitch and very quickly and I think it was due to Steve's expertise and help. If we lived in California we would be using again for sure! - SP, Moorpark, CA
From our first association, stemming from Steve's community involvement in little league baseball, through the sale of a house in Northridge, and the purchase of a house in Oak Park, I have developed a true appreciation for Steve's realty knowledge, complete honesty (ie., not a single "surprise"), dedication, and flat-out hard work that is second to none. In selling my house, Steve clearly established the most suitable selling price (using all available neighborhood transaction data from the prior year); the price exceeded my expectations, and then, after more than a month of searching and showing, working through his array of realty associates and contacts, found a buyer, who was totally pleased with his/her discovery. The deal closed smoothly, and I moved to an apartment in Oak Park - temporarily - to look for a new home. I provided Steve my locations, size, and price criteria, which - unfortunately - described a market where nothing was available in my preferred location, at any price. We eventually settled on a neighborhood of some three dozen homes, none of which were on the market, nor had been for quite some time. Steve researched and canvassed all the owners, with zero results. On the second round of contacts, a single point of interest was uncovered, which Steve nurtured and developed into an agreed-to sale, at a marvelous price. The closing was totally smooth, and now I am living in my new home, completely happy. Perhaps other realty agents could have performed these feats, but certainly not with the openness, continual dialogue, willingness to listen, and the warmth that Steve provided. Steve has evolved to a position of personal friend with me, and most recently connected me with a much-needed tax accountant, again using his wide range of friends, acquaintances, associates, and customers, to uncover a set of recommendations that turn out to be perfect. I am grateful for so many aspects of our relationship, such that I can recommend Steve without reservation: for his professional realty activities, but also for the personal association, and caring that he provides with all his dealings. - JR, Northridge, CA
I had an excellent experience with Steve Rifkin as my Realtor. Not only did he sell my Calabasas home in days, but he got the highest price for that model since 2007. Steve was professional every step of the way. His demeanor, knowledge of the area, and communication skills kept us informed through out, and made our transaction stress free. Yes... a real estate transaction stress free! After we sold our home, I used Steve to purchase a condo. I will use him again and again. - YP, Calabasas, CA
When my husband and I decided to move abroad, we had many doubts and disagreements on how to go about selling the house. Fortunately, we both agreed that Steve Rifkin was the right person to represent us. We have known Steve to be a responsible, sharp Realtor; but equally important to us was Steve's attitude, always reassuring, not pressuring us, as other agents are known to do. As a result of his efforts we had multiple offers immediately, and the house sold for over the asking price. The whole process moved smoothly and just about stress free because of Steve Rifkin's attentiveness and help. We highly recommend him! - NB, Agoura Hills, CA
