My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Steven while looking for a home
for lease in Oakville. He was very professional, tenacious, and honest. 

He always followed up within a timely manner, and he was extremely hard working at
helping us find a home within our budget for our growing family. He was eminently
dedicated to his job; meeting with us after business hours, booking multiple showings
on short notice, and even getting the homeowner to lower the rental price for us!


His level of customer service and his professionalism exceeded our expectations,
and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking for a knowledgable
real estate agent. Steven will be the agent we turn to once we are ready to purchase
our first family home, as we know his expertise will make the home buying process a
smooth transition for us!


Thank you again for all of your help Steven,

Jessica Wright

Steve was a STAR!!!! Steve was extremely professional and of great assistance in
accommodating my need to find a suitable Rental home in Stouffville, working under a
VERY demanding and tight timeframe. Listings were sent out promptly.
Showings were booked in a convenient, timely manner. Steve arrived early at our meeting
location which was impressive with the extended distance he had to travel and the traffic on
the roads this day. An amazing rental was found however, other people were interested pursing it!
After completing a late evening application for the Owner to consider, Steve stayed in touch
communicating all requirements and status.
Steve was able to build a report with the listing agent and negotiated a lease and mid-month move
in date that the owners accepted. All within a 24 hour time frame!!

Hi Steve
I would like to thank you for all your efforts in helping me find a new home in such an unpredictable
housing market. Your knowledge and guidance in the Burlington and Oakville area certainly helped
me in securing my new home. You always acted in a very professional manner and demonstrated
a depth of listening, understanding and patience in showing me homes that suited my life style.
In general, you 
asked the right questions at each property to gain my insight without any pressure
to buy.
 
You were also very helpful in terms of drafting the offer to ensure that I was competitive amongst
the six offers presented. 
I would be more than happy to recommend you to my friends and
colleagues. A true professional realtor, and even more a genuine and authentic individual.
Thanks again!

"Outstanding Service"

If you are looking for the best agent in Oakville look no further you’ve found him!

Thank you, Steve for a job well done. You came on board in a situation that had us all behind the 8 ball
and completely turned the process around. You drew upon your many years of experience and
exceptional skills to bring the sale of my Condo back onto solid ground.

In just 11 days we were signing the sale documents to my full satisfaction. Impressive to say the least!
You will always be the agent I choose from here on out. I will gladly recommend you highly to family,
friends and colleagues.
I would wish you all future success but you won’t need it. You’re already there!

Steve made our first home buying experience run very smoothly. He asked what we wanted in a home, and pointed
out the pros and cons of new versus older homes. He inquired about our price range, and respectfully stayed within
those limits.

We’d heard horror stories of people searching for months with no luck, but on our first outing Steve showed us six
homes, and we ended up buying the first one he showed. He was always available when we had a question, or a
sudden panic attack. We’re very excited about our first home and we’ll definitely be calling Steve for our next
real estate transaction.

We had a great experience in working with Steven while looking for a home in Oakville. We worked with
him over a span of about nine months and realized how patient he was in trying to understand what we
were looking for in our next home. Once we even came to a point of making an 'emotional' decision
regarding one of the homes we saw but he made us see the practical side and why that house will not
fit our needs. That just shows he understood our needs better than we did ourselves.

Last month we finally found the house we were looking for and Steven really came through in negotiating
the best price for us with the owners and their agent. I would recommend Steven for his knowledge and
experience in the real estate area and on top of it he is excellent with tips on interior decoration of the
place as well..thats his hidden talent.

Thanks very much Steven. Much appreciated.

Buying and selling a home can be a stressful experience, but with Steven Burrows, we always felt confident
and assured. When we initially purchased our home a few years ago it was with the help of Steven. It went
so well that when it came time to sell there was no hesitation in our minds as to who we would have handle
our listing again.

Even in these times when the market has been so challenging, Steven was so patient and encouraging.
He displayed our property's very best features (in print and on the internet) and clearly had our interests
at heart throughout the entire negotiation process. The solid advice he gave us on presentation of the
property and listing price enabled us to attract buyers and get us the maximum price. In a short period
of time our property sold with multiple offers and at 99% of the listed price! It was nice to know that we
were among the highest price if not the highest price sold in our neighbourhood.
Steven’s enthusiasm, professionalism, and drive are just some of his great characteristics that helps get
the job done.

Thank you again Steven for taking the time to make us feel like we were your most important clients!

Kind regards,
Matt and Laureen

If you are even thinking about selling your home then trust me when I tell you, Steven Burrows is the agent
to go to. You can waste your time with other agencies and other agents, but if you really want to get the job
done, then go with Steve.
 
We were referred to him by two different relatives of ours who used his expertise to sell each of their
homes in the Oakville area. We had used the services of other agents and didn't see one offer come
through the door in almost 10 months of being listed. We interviewed a few potential replacements and
both agreed Steve was the most natural and had a great plan for selling our house.

Within a couple of months of being listed, he had our first offer. When things slowed down for us, he
re-marketed our place and within another couple of months we received our second offer. We knew we
had made the right choice for an agent for ourselves when we told him this offer was not the right one for
us. He listened and got back to the business of attracting potential buyers. But fate intervened and
economic times got tough. But that didn't slow him down. Despite this, he managed to sell our home
bringing in the best offer yet in the worst of times!!!

We sold and are thrilled that we went with an agent who knows his business and works with you to make
your sale a reality. If you aren't convinced by an agent who can sell your house even when economic times
are tough, I don't know what kind of agent you want.

He's effective, efficient, considerate and will always go that extra mile. Steve we can't thank you enough
for EVERYTHING you did all along the way to help us sell our primary investment and the place we called
our home. We will undoubtedly recommend him to anyone we know wanting to sell and will rely on his
professionalism and knowledge if we dare to venture into the market again.

This is the second time that I have worked with Steven on getting a leased property.
Steven is extremely professional in that he worked with me to find just the right properties to view
and finally acquire. He was also very diligent in getting all the paperwork done right the first time.
Thank you Steven and I will not only use your services for future dealings but recommend you to
anybody looking to purchase or lease a property.

We want to thank you for the great job you did on selling the townhouse.  When you sat down
with me for the first time I could tell that you would do your best to sell the house in a reasonable
time and provide us a high quality service.  The house only stay 1 month in the market and sold
for a good price.
 
One thing we really appreciate; working with you was the constant communication. 
You were always letting us know what was going on and what were the next steps to successfully
sell the house.
 
Thanks, and we really appreciated working with you.

Steven found us our dream home. He knew it was for us probably before we did. He has a keen sense
of working with people. He listens, is patient and works and works until you're happy. He made the whole
experience enjoyable and stress-free. Steven has been our only real estate agent over the last
12 years....and there's a reason for that. He's more than an agent...he's become a family friend.

Steven Burrows has listed and sold our homes twice and has done a remarkable job. 
His enthusiasm, professionalism, and drive are just some of his great characteristic that helps get the
job done.  We will continue to use Steve to represent us in the future and will always refer him to our
family and friends.

Thanks Steve for making our moves a seamless one.

    We sold our first home with Steven, and while the relationship was short and sweet (our home sold shortly after being
listed on MLS), the experience will not soon be forgotten. Steve motivated us, educated us, and even offered to help us
move furniture! His advice was always objective which provided a great balance to the emotions that came with selling
our first home. He was consistent and proactive in providing updates to us on a weekly basis - he was on top of the situation!
Steve - we appreciated your straight-forward manner and we are glad you were by our side during this process!

To Prospective Clients,

I have known Steven Burrows for some time, during which he has assisted me with selling and
buying two properties.

He is patient, listening to and even visualizing one’s requests and desires. As well, he knows the
market, and is on time for appointments. When things are serious, he lightens the situation with humour.
He keeps in touch at all times.

I would highly recommend Steven Burrows for Real Estate transactions.  

Sincerely,
D. Hood

We would like to thank Steven for his professional and attentive service in selling our property.
Steven marketed our home better than we ever imagined and his Real Estate Information Center kept us
informed with up-to-the-minute information regarding all activity pertaining to the sale of our home
.
We appreciated such quality services along with his clear and concise explanations and the space he
gave us to ask questions and make decisions.
Above all, his unassuming confidence and expert
negotiating skills put us at ease and sold our home for more than asking in under two weeks.

Thanks for a job well done,
Brian and Kristy Turgeon

We recently bought a new house and sold our old house with Steven and we are very happy with the end result
on both sides. The whole process from when we first met Steven, to finalizing both sale and purchase agreements
with matching closing dates, took less than two weeks!  

     From our past experience, we know how stressful and painful the process of selling a house can be.  
We were pleasantly surprised to see the opposite when Steven was on our side!

     Steven really listened to all our needs and professionally led us through the whole process with great care and
our best interests in mind. His expertise, confidence, energy and dedication to his clients make him to stand out
among the real estate agents. Steven even helped us to make the house more appealing to the potential buyers,
and he not only gave an advice, but also personally helped to move the furniture around! His marketing and
negotiation skills and his professional photos deserve additional comments.

     Thank you, Steven – we will definitely use your services again, and we will recommend your services to
anyone who is looking for a great Real Estate Agent.

My husband and I recently purchased our first home with Steven. As first time home buyers,
the process can become a little overwhelming. While working with Steven, he listened to all
our needs (and extended wish list) and was able to really focus in on our top priorities and
show us homes within that criteria. Steven was nothing but patient, informative and
accommedating. He worked around our crazy scheduals in order to be able to show us the
most homes as possible in the little time that we had. His personal dedication to making sure
that we found, not only a house, but a home that we would love was always apparent.
His knowledge and professionalism stood out, not only in our day to day transactions with him,
but also in our end result when we purchased our home at below the asking price within 6 days
of hiring him. Every weekend when we are enjoying a BBQ in our new backyard , we are
reminded how greatful we are that we worked with Steven in order to find a home that we love.
Whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Steven as an agent .

Renee Gratton-Veaudry

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven, we would like to thank you for your professionalism and expertise in selling our home.
We were thrilled when our home sold in 7 days at 100% of our asking price! Your great advice
and negotiating skills are to be commended in both the purchasing and selling of our homes.
We will highly recommend you to friends who are thinking of making a move in the future.

Sincere thanks,
Carol and Sean Curran

Steve,

Just a quick note to thank you for doing a phenomenal job selling our house. We were completely
at ease with your ability to negotiate on our behalf and you came through - not only did you get
us over 98% of our list price but you also delivered on the intangible needs we had including the
perfect closing date. To top things off you accomplished this within the first week  of our listing
hitting the market! You took all the stress out of the selling process. If we need any real estate
services in the future, you'll be the first  person we call. Additionally, we wouldn't hesitate to refer
you to our family and friends when they are looking for a professional and efficient real estate agent.
Thanks again Steve!

Gord, Liz, Maddie and of course your friend, Scotia.

"We would not hesitate to recommend Steve to any of our friends, family or associates.
His approach to both the sale and the purchase of a home is impressive. He quickly
grasped our needs and worked diligently to make sure that we were happy with the
process and most importantly the outcome. Steve continued to exceed our expectations
with his professionalism and client commitment."

“I would like to offer a sincere “Thanks” to Steven for the enthusiastic way he approached
the selling of our home in Oakville. When we first interviewed him, after a couple of others,
we were impressed with the way he seemed to take a personal interest in our house.
When we decided to go with him, he offered a number of great ideas so that our home
would “show” at its best. Not only did he have some ideas, he willingly came & helped us
physically move some things around. That's service!

Throughout the time that we worked with Steve, we always had the impression that, not
only did he care about the sale of our house, but also cared about us. It is difficult to ask
for more. We would highly recommend Steven, and his enthusiasm, to anyone interested
in selling or buying a home.

Thanks Steve

Diana & Robert White

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steven, we want to  thank you for your professionalism and patience. As first time home sellers,
we did not know what to expect but your understanding and advice really helped us get through it!
And your sense of humour really came in handy too! Given the amount of showings our home had,
we know you worked hard to get our home noticed. We will definitely call you for our next move!

“So often in life when we have an experience that is not exactly as we had hoped we are very quick
to call or write or tell others about how awful we truly felt it was. Not nearly enough however I feel
when we have positive experiences, do we take the time to tell others how happy we are that things
turned out the way they did. Perhaps incorrectly we assume that commitment, dedication and
understanding from others is something that we just simply deserve and therefore when we receive
we are not grateful, as we should be. I feel however it is not assumed that this kind of help is what
we will always receive and when we do, we need to be appreciative and grateful.
 
    Thus it was very important for me to write just a little note on what a warm, encouraging event finding
a new home was when supported by Steven Burrows. Steve was so kind to my husband, infant son and I.
He listened closely to what our needs were for a home, what was important to us and what we hoped to
find that we would be happy and settled with and financially comfortable in. He took us to many homes
and never made us feel that we were asking to much. Quite the contrary actually told us not to settle
and to give significance to the things that were so important and had worth to us. The time committed
to our search was exemplary and far and above the call of duty. My concern of not being able to find a
home I would love was truly lost when indeed were actually shown three homes by Steve that we would
of been thrilled to call our own. If during this process I ever had any concerns, and being one who worries
I had many, somehow I knew I could just call and Steve would settle my fears. Never was a question left
unanswered or concern left unheard. In the only four weeks that it took Steve to sell our home and find
us a new one, we would love, I felt that not only was this his career that he is so successful at performing,
but truly had my best interest at heart. We received nothing but personal care, respect and wonderful
kindness from Steve and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a special place to
call home.“

......Our family began to expand and we required larger living space. Hence,.... we decided that we
wanted to sell our home. We noticed many real estate signs up in our neighborhood bearing the
name “Steven Burrows“. We decided to contact Steve and in retrospect it was the best decision we made.
 
Steve, came to our residence with a “no pressure“ attitude. He was extremely professional in his
mannerism and provided answers to all our questions. We felt comfortable and at ease in our dealings
with Steve. We also observed a tremendous quality about Steve that has convinced us that we use his
services in future transactions. Steve has an unparalleled dedication and commitment to providing the
best service to all his clients. We say this with great acclamation, because in selling our first home,
Steve had to do this task on two (2) separate occasions.
 
Initially. we had received a conditional offer on our home ten (10) days after listing with Steve.
During the ten period, we had over forty showings and continually feedback from Steve....some five days
later...Steve informed us...the offer had fallen through...As anyone can imagine, we were upset, but we
found Steve to be very reassuring....less than twenty-four hours later we had another conditional offer.
The offer was firm two days later and we got the “asking price“ for our home.
 
During the fourteen days we had our home listed, Steve was tremendous. He eased our stress and
tension by keeping us updated on buyer feedback. Steve provided the attitude, “this is my home“ and
got the best possible deal for us. We found him to be dedicated  with a “no pressure“ approach, always
standing by whatever decision we made. For these reasons, if anyone is looking at selling their home,
we would sincerely recommend the qualities that Steve has to offer. Steve, we commend you on making
a very difficult job look easy. Thank you for your relentless devotion.

“Just a quick note to thank you for your continued service and support. I really appreciated you coming
to my new home yesterday, and especially the assistance with measurements and colours. I do enjoy
selecting paint and furnishings but I sometimes find the whole thing overwhelming. It is really helpful to
hear the opinion of people I like and respect. You provided food for thought and suggested options I may
not have otherwise considered. I look forward to seeing you for a glass of wine to celebrate after I get
moved in!“
 
Michelle
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
“Steve's team worked together well as a team, effectively answering all our questions and calming our nervousness
before and after we had listed. We had never sold a home before but they proved to us that we had chosen the right
people to sell our home
. They made us feel at ease and comfortable about the process from listing to completing the
sale in just ten days, at more than list price. What more could you ask?”
Bruce & Mary
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
“I hope you can appreciate the absolute depth of sincerity that accompanies this “thank you”.
Your compassion and understanding throughout this real estate transaction was only surpassed
by your incredible patience! Your professionalism, sprinkled with humour and zest will never be
forgotton and will be truly treasured by me for a long time to come! I will certainly recommend
you at every opportunity and would not hesitate to request your services for all future transactions!
Thank you so very much.“

“Since my wife and I moved to Oakville a little over 5 years ago, we have been through 5 real estate
transactions. Generally speaking, we found the service we received very poor and the concentration
of agents squarely fixed on their commissions more than anything else. Commissions are important
but should only be the outcome of a professional transaction. Pleasantly, we happened to cross paths
with Steven, professional and firmly concerned with our satisfaction as clients all the while providing
guidance and good advice. Truly professional service and advice is rare these days.”
 
John

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We were very impressed with your marketing strategies. The ads you placed in the Oakville Beaver were very attractive
and the Feature Sheets you designed were in excellent taste and the most attractive one we’d ever seen” The virtual tour
you provided on your website was also done in excellent taste. We felt that the wording and photography for the MLS 

Listing, which was one of the most important tools for selling the home, made both our house and your marketing experience
stand out above the competition”

Mr. & Mrs. Burnstein

We have both purchased a home and sold our home through Steven Burrows.

We would highly recommend his services.
