First licensed as a real estate professional in 2002, Steve’s success in real estate comes from the way he cares about his clients as individuals. Having practiced plaintiff’s litigation in Denver for over 20 years, he developed a passionate caring for his clients’ interests – both personal and financial. He is an experienced and determined negotiator with a driven desire to find his clients the right home for the best price.
Additionally, Steve has built or restored some of the most prominent homes in Park Hill, Hilltop, Country Club and Cherry Hills. These experiences provide him with the ability to advise and or educate his clients on potential construction projects or issues related to a home. Although he is no longer active in home construction, Steve maintains a relationship with his former subcontractors and craftsman, and regularly refers his clients to qualified professional construction professionals.
When not working passionately on behalf of his clients, Steve heads out to the great Colorado outdoors. In his younger years, Steve enjoyed playing rugby for a number of competitive clubs – the last being the Denver Barbarians. During his “rugby years”, Steve traveled with his team to play international matches in New Zealand, Bermuda, and Spain. Now too old and slow to play contact sports, Steve enjoys free time playing golf, fly fishing and skiing – including volunteering as an instructor with adaptive ski programs at Winter Park and Beaver Creek.
