All Realtor Websites Say About the Same Stuff

So why listen to me and what makes me different? Great question.

I’m not your typical real estate agent. Don’t get me wrong I love my fellow agents, let’s be honest there are some negatives in real estate, just like any industry. I’m different because I do exactly what I say I will do:
  • I am always available and reachable
  • I am responsive; I answer the phone, I return calls and emails quickly
  • I don’t take you for granted
  • I care about what you want and your agenda, with no judgement
  • I won’t force you to make a decision you aren’t comfortable with
  • I will show you as many houses as you wish to see
  • Because I know the area so well, I will share insights and expectations beyond the ordinary for buying or selling
  • I will listen to you completely

I highly recommend Stieg, and after having him help you find a home, you will highly recommend him as well.” – Greg Swenson
