What People Have Said
Reviews from Previous Clients
Happy Seller 2016 - Happy Buyer 2017 -- His knowledge of the housing market was timely and relevant and his thorough research into the property’s covenants, planned road and project developments, as well as areas that would potentially yield a higher return on our investment was invaluable. Steven worked diligently to ensure that the sale of our home in Cary, as well as the purchase of our new home in Angier, went flawlessly! We cannot say enough how grateful we were to have had the opportunity to work with a professional agent like Steven. We have recommended Steven to several of our friends that have been looking for an agent to either list their current home or to purchase a new home. We also highly recommend Steven for those special clients that are looking for that one very specific home that has a long list of “must haves”. We are planning on purchasing several investment properties within the near future and the only real estate agent we plan to work with is Steven Kooistra. Thank you for having such a great agent working for you at Fonville Morisey!
Happy Buyer 2016 --- The experience my wife and I had while buying our home was fantastic -- in no small part because Steven Kooistra was our buyers` agent. Steven worked incredibly hard to learn our needs and to educate us about market conditions and neighborhood options. He responded to our questions with speed and skill. He had a good "ear to the ground," putting numerous wonderful opportunities in front of us as soon as they arose. We trusted him thoroughly to have our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. In fact, when I fell in love with a house that was "not quite right," he listened to me attentively. He heard me out. Then he counseled me with both tact and candor. Marshaling appropriate evidence, he made the case that if we went ahead with an offer on that house, we should be sure to avoid overpaying. So we wound up making an offer -- but a low one -- on this "not quite right" house. During the subsequent negotiation with the sellers, another house came on the market. The truly right house for us. We saw it that morning and made an offer that afternoon -- as we were driving many hours to visit my parents. Steven orchestrated all the moving pieces while my family was on the road, and he guided us as we put together the key elements of our offer. With 11 showings that day and several other offers, ours was the one accepted by the sellers. We sailed through the rest of the process, with Steven`s help all along the way, and closed without a hitch. I am so grateful to Steven for giving me such caring and effective counsel when I was temporarily in love with that other, "not quite right" house. I am so grateful to Steven for helping us find this house, our home, where we plan to be for a long time to come. And if and when we ever decide to move again, we will surely ask Steven to represent us again. I wholeheartedly recommend Steven Kooistra to you.
Happy Buyer 2016 – Happy Investor 2017 --- Steven was great. We`ve used him for the purchase of two properties: our main home and an investment property. In both cases he was caring, responsive, and thorough. We never feel rushed with him, and we know that he`s in our corner. When we were planning to move to the area, Steven met with us and showed us properties even though we weren`t ready to purchase, just to help us get a sense of what we were looking for. He later took us out to visit a lot of different places, and he was equally comfortable setting up appointments for properties we`d identified and showing us properties he`d researched that he thought we`d like. In both sales, Steven handled the negotiation well and was able to get a fair price and provide us with good advice throughout. Highly recommended.
Happy Seller 2016 --- Upon our initial meetings, Steven listened to my requests and needs and together we arrived at the best listing for my home. My home went on the market at the beginning of a long holiday weekend. As other prospective buyers realtors were away on vacation, Steven made himself available to meet the other agent’s potential buyers. I appreciated his flexibility and commitment as I had multiple offers within the first day. Selling your home can be stressful and Steven worked to make it as smooth and possible. I would recommend Steven as Realtor.
