  • "Steven has all of the information about all of the things going on in the West Loop which helped us with our buying decision. The market was very competitive for buyers when we're buying. Steven hewr about a townhome that was going to be going on sale soon and when it did, we were able to see it and place an offer on day one. We couldn't be happier with his service for us. Thanks!" - Jim and Emily (Buyer)
  • "Steven meets all the demands of being a superstar agent. He is knowledgeable, thorough, responsive, strategic, and honest. Steven represented us in selling our condo and he was absolutely the glue that held the transaction together from start to finish. Steven concurrently assisted us in finding  a rental to move to, and did a great job of managing that process and negotiating the lease. I highly recommend Steven for any and all real estate needs."
  • "Steven worked with us to find a hard to find 3BR in the west loop with a borderline budget and a big wish list. He was professional and patient, working with us many weekends and often at a moment's notice to show us listings that could fit the bill. Along the way, he educated us about the market,  and he even pushed us away from a property with symptoms of structural issues even though it would have put money in his pocket. He ultimately found us a unit not yet on the market and negotiated on our behalf to make it We closed in 30 days, but Steven didn't stop there. He helped us find a contractor to do the renovations we wanted. Steven works fast and smart. He's professional but personal, and we'd recommend him in a heartbeat."
  • "I'm convinced that Steven Powers will be the best agent I've ever worked with. Prior to moving to California, Steven handled both the purchase and sale of my home. Throughout the process (which was more difficult than usual due to it being a foreclosure) Steven was a sage guide that got us through  the process and fought for us every step of the way. One of my favorite aspects of Steven's background is that the fact that he understands the construction business. It's wonderful to walk into a house and have an agent who can point things out and offer real perspective on pros/cons of a home in a very fundamental way. If you are in need of a real-estate agent, don't think twice about hiring Steven."
