Steven Johnson reviews


 

Client Testimonials

I had a great experience working with Steven. This was my first home purchase, and Steven has always made sure I felt comfortable and supported. He is extremely knowledgable and always made sure to point out both the attractions and potential pitfalls of a piece of real estate. He never rushed me toward a purchase but was happy to work with me until I found the place that was right for me. Steven worked long hours all through negotiations to make sure I got the best deal possible when purchasing my new home and has continued to offer his services even after closing. I've been extremely lucky to find such a conscientious and trustworthy professional. I could not recommend his services more highly. Jane E. - 12/17

Steven Johnson has been my buyer's agent for two homes in Corvallis. He is knowledgeable about the area, detail-oriented, and has extensive experience. He has good contacts with local contractors, inspectors, and lending institutions. He is prompt and keeps the whole process moving along. I highly recommend his services.
Debora T. - 10/17

We previously used Steven to buy this property and now again to sell it. Steven expertly guided us through the process of dealing with multiple offers and also through the repair negotiation phase. Because we were able to stay in the home beyond closing, he also worked with us beyond the normal time for most home sales. He was very helpful. Brad D. - 09/17

Steven is highly attentive to even the smallest of details from the initial search to final closing. Steven always did a great job of hearing and learning what we wanted and then working patiently to present various properties to us. We will most certainly use him again. Chad M. - 08/17

Steven helped me to buy the duplex property. He works with so much patience to gather all the necessary info for buyer. When I did not know something, he educated me and helped to get whats best for me. I would strongly recommend him to hire for realtor services. I have introduced him several of my friends and they are all very happy with his services. Suneel K. - 06/17

Steven represented us with three difficult real estate purchases. He is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, and local building and zoning requirements. I highly recommend him to buyers in this strong seller's market!!! Alexis R. - 06/17

Steve is very professional and thorough. He has great knowledge of the Corvallis home market and was instrumental in helping us sell our home. I would highly recommend Steve. Mark J. -  06/17

Steven took his time to show us around and helped us make the right choice. He is an excellent agent and no one will be disappointed with his service. Abi A.- 11/16

I have just bought a house with the support of Mr. Steven Johnson. This was my first experience in USA to buy a house, and there was a significant knowledge gap to address at my side. Moreover, as a tenure-track faculty, I have a very limited time to commit anything else apart from my research. Under these conditions, buying a house, can be an extremely challenging task. Thankfully, Mr. Steven Johnson extended his support, and significantly facilitated my home buying process by providing continuous help. Attila Y. - 10/16

Steven was very attentive and always worked with our hectic schedules. He readily communicated with the seller and various other involved persons. He did all he could to make the process less stressful.
Vanessa D - 06/16


Steve recently helped us purchase a home in Albany, Oregon. Steve guided us skillfullythrough the home purchase and was an excellent and effective advocate for us. His knowledge of local processes, experts, and resources was particularly valuable, since we were completing this purchase from out-of-state, and through part of the process, actually out of the country. His communications were always prompt, clear and helpful. After the closing, he has continued to assist with our property until we can get re-located into our new Oregon home. We would highly recommend Steve to anyone needing the help of a real estate professional.
Melinda M. - 05/17

Highly recommend Steven Johnson, he went above and beyond our expectations in selling our home. We relocated out of state and felt very comfortable leaving our home in his hands, we couldn't have gone with a better realtor. He is amazing! Lizbeth S. - 03/16

Steven did an incredible job working for us in finding and buying our new home! He always had our best interests in mind, and I would say I would not want anyone else in my corner! Bryan E. - 01/16

Steven was very patient and easy to work with. Our real estate transaction was probably more complex than many, but he painstakingly worked through each issue with us. He provided his opinion on the best way to go each step of the way, but was very open to our thoughts. We would recommend him to anyone we know, and would have him help us with any future home buying transaction. Luke D. - 09/15

Steven worked with us for a year and a half, as we prepared to retire and move from New York to Oregon. On our trips out here to look at homes and communities, he devoted days at a time almost exclusively to us. In addition to showing us properties, he also shared his comprehensive knowledge of local history, politics, architecture, climate, flora and fauna, restaurants (never steered us wrong on those!), etc. So when we finally came out here for good, we already had a good working knowledge of the area and were confident and at ease. He always was available to us and followed up immediately on any issues that came up. Most of all, he is a person of impeccable integrity. Never once did we hear him say anything bad or negative about another agent or seller (even though, in our opinion, there were some who deserved it). He is the example of professionalism that all in the business should strive to emulate. Pete G. - 08/15

Steven is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Always easy to communicate with, great knowledge of a broad spectrum of different properties. As a buyers agent he has a great list of home inspectors including well and septic that were very professional and timely. In the ten months it took us to find our perfect little farm, Steven was always in contact with potential homes and land possibilities. In the escrow process he negotiated with sellers to lower accepted offer and remove unnecessary expenses. Do they get better than Steven Johnson? I doubt it.
Craig G. - 08/15

Steven was wonderful to work with! He worked very hard to find us a property that fit all of our needs, in our price range, and then worked even harder to find us the best financing that could close in our timeframe! I have nothing but wonderful things to say for him, he advocates for his clients, and understands the market so well. I have recommended him to friends looking in the area, and we will definitely use him for our next purchase! Jaymee K. -  07/15                               


Steve was knowledgeable about the geographic area, farm country north of Corvallis. He was very helpful in getting necessary repairs done by local trades people at reasonable prices, and extremely patient and understanding in helping us determine a selling strategy and fair price. Additionally, he is an excellent communicator. We always knew where we stood in negotiations and at each point throughout the sale process. He respected our input and treated us very well. I have no reservations about recommending Steve as a buyer or a seller's agent for any sale in the Corvallis and Albany areas. David G. Atty at law - 12/14

With my property sale, Steven took on a complex sale with components that were not traditionally part of typical sale. He was very impressive in how he researched issues, logistics, city government groups and a range of other secondary or tertiary parties that needed to coordinate in order to pull it all off. He became an expert on all of the technical and process factors that would ultimately impact the sale. He pulled all of them together to bring the sale together on schedule. As well, was an excellent communicator along the way - engaging me in decision making along at the right times so that the end results were aligned exactly to my expectations. I appreciated his collaboration and communication and overall am very happy with how he showed up in my property sale. Mike L. - 8/14


We have used Steven to buy two homes and talk every now and again about selling and needs for the house. Steven is incredibly patient and responsive and truly tries to find the "best fit" for his customers. He learns as much as he can about your needs / wants and helps to filter out properties that won't fit your needs. He is very well versed in all the neighborhoods and regions and what the plusses and minuses are of each, which helps you to make the best decision for your family. An example of Steven's "over and above": We were moving from St. Louis to Corvallis and were having a horrible time selling our house in St. Louis in a down market with a realtor that was difficult to work with. Steven used his network and found - then INTERVIEWED realtors in the St. Louis area to find one that could get our house sold and would work with us. We used his recommendation, and that realtor sold our  He considers this type of action "part of the job", we called it amazing service.

Steven had the awesome task of guiding my husband and me through a home purchase in McMinnville, Oregon. This was about an hour drive from his home and office and it never stopped him from showing up when we needed him. Steven also assisted us with our home selling process in Klamath Falls, He lined up the title companies and bankers for our loan so all we had to do was ask questions and sign, sign, sign. The timing of the close of our home in Klamath Falls and the close of the home in McMinnville was critical and encroaching on Christmas. You can imagine the stress my husband and I were under. And no matter the level of our panic, Steven remained calm and always the voice of reason and comfort. It was a JOY to work with Steven and I recommend him with the HIGHEST regard.  Joyce & Ron R. - 1/14

Steven went above and beyond in helpfulness.  He was a wonderful person to work with, and we know we could call him even now and he would do what he could to help.  We enjoyed working with Steven.  Tracy M., Jay M. - 3/13

Steven Johnson is a consummate professional.  I was referred to him by a source I was not so confident in.  Thus, I was hesitant going into the relationship.  After just a day or two of working with Steven, I realized how truly dedicated, professional, communicative and helpful he was.  I would recommend him highly to anyone who asks and already have.  Thanks so much!  Tanya U. President of T. C. - 1/13

This was our 3rd transaction with your office and specifically with Steven.  His attention to detail was impeccable.  In addtion, we had a particularly challenging issue with an elevated Radon level that required remediation by the sellers.  Steven observed the lack of ventilation in the crawl space and suggested that we check the level.  He then did the research concerning remediation, kept in full communication with us and monitored the situation until everthing was satifactorily repaired. He was an incredible support concerning this issue, and we are very grateful.  Thank you Steven for all your help!   Isabel & Tom P. - 11/12

Steven was great to work with, he was informed, helpful and regularly went out of his way to accomodate our questions and concerns.  I will highly recommend him to our acquaintances.
Emily S, Keven H. - 5/12

From the first time that we met Steven Johnson, he was very professional and did his best to assist us with a wide variety of available homes.  We worked with Steven for about one and half years and he was always available to answer questions.  Cindy B., David P. -5/12

Steven went well above and beyond what we expected in the way of service.

Steven was exceptional.  Other realtors could learn from him.  Excellent to work with and always ready to go.  Was very impressed and seemed one step ahead all the time.  Thanks again Steve.  Getting ready to leave for Alaska, be calling you to come by and pick up some fish.  Willie & Tina D. -  08/09

We were just driving through Corvallis and stopped by to speak to a realtor. We met Steven, much to our delight.  He was terrific, very thoughtful, kind, honest and just made our experience of buying a house a pleasure.  He was very thorough and patient.  We appreciate his effort and his taking time to tour Albany with us, so we felt more at ease buying there. A great guy!  Sharon & Karl K. -  08/08

I can't speak highly enough of the work Steven did.  He was stalwart throughout the process.  I had only Steven and my sister who lives in Portland to rely on, since I lived out of town.  But I bought the home of my dreams.  Steven was so well prepared; he was a complete delight!  Barbara R. - 04/07

Steve was skillful in offer-writing to my benefit, allowing me sometimes multiple options, he was thorough in explanation, since I was a first-time buyer, and he was helpful in yard-advice and always responsive.  Rodger G. - 06/07

Mr Johnson always follows up and whenever I had questions or concerns he was there.  He was sincerely concerned about our welfare and sensitive to our needs. Very professional and a avaluable asset to your company.  Thank you for the excellent service!  Frank G. - 02/07
