What my clients have to say

 The Sale of our Northgate home in 6 days with multiple offers was the result of Steve's exceptional expertise. He is a highly effective realtor who has contacts to a wide breadth of resources, in addition to his own keen insight of the housing market. We truly fully benefited from his decades of experience and wise advise. Steve steered us to the best tradespeople to update our house for a top-dollar sale. Steve stayed in frequent contact with us. He kept us informed on the progress of the sales process from afar, as we had already moved to our new home in another city. In addition, Steve was hands-on and hard working, making sure the contractors were on time to accomplish the projects on the house prior to sale. His approachable, extremely patient, and calm personality made us feel comfortable during the sale of the house. We feel confident that anyone using Steve will be extremely satisfied with his knowledge of the Walnut Creek area and his real estate business acumen. Steve proved to be a person of high integrity and follow-through. We were very fortunate to have met Steve when we needed his services.

 Having spent an exceptionally successful career in real estate in Hawaii, my realtor interviews and expectations in Walnut Creek were High. Steve gets the highest rating possible. He far exceeded our expectations and we will use him again and recommend him highly. A full time professional who is caring and compassionate while representing clients. My brother-In-law died of cancer and Steve and his suggestions on remodeling and marketing and sharing info on contractors/services was extremely beneficial. The stress level remained low. Thanks to his efforts in marketing, the house sold quickly and, again. Steve is our Realtor now and in the future.

 After working in real estate development for commercial and residential builders for over 40 years I have found Steve Hansen to be the absolute best, most knowledge, most reliable and most conscientious agent in the business. Have used him for 6 transactions locally and would not use anyone else.
Just a note to say, "Many Thanks for all the personalized service you have given in the sale of our home". Never once did we have the feeling you were too busy. You were always so prompt in returning calls & working at problems until they were resolved. We really appreciate all your hard work and we feel like we have a new friend besides! We both thank you!"

 Steve has been our agent in several transactions, both purchases and sales, of rental properties, and is our go-to guy. He is honest and trustworthy, and will always give you the straight scoop. He has long experience and knowledge in the real estate market, including successfully navigating pretty much every type of market condition that has existed, from boom to bust and back again. He has always given us sound advice in decision making and negotiations, and freely shared his understanding of the market. Early on in our relationship he made sure to learn our preferences and needs, and always had an eye out for the kind of deal we would want. Steve is also just a really nice guy to work with, which makes it all a lot more pleasurable. And on top of that, he will go the extra mile - when we sold with Steve and were away for a month, he even took on the job of overseeing the final property improvements, allowing us to get to market sooner than it would have been possible otherwise. After 8 very successful transactions with Steve, we happily recommend him!

Steve was agent for our Martinez house which we listed in November after a 90 day listing w/another realtor from whom we received no offers. My husband & I found Steve easy to talk to (he listens), easy-going, and very likeable and professional. He made suggestions w/out pressuring us to accept what he suggested. We trusted him to present our house at its best, including hiring a stager & a professional photographer. Our house was unique in that it was difficult to comp, was one of 6 custom homes on a private lane amidst upscale tract homes in Martinez. Maybe we were lucky to get an offer in the 1st week. But Steve was always responsive to our calls & questions, he knew the area and the local market and was not afraid to tell us what he did not know. Without question, we would have him represent us again if we were buying or selling another home.

Thank you for all your help & for doing such a great job selling the house! You put in so much time and energy. You made it so easy with your solution, oriented professionalism. I always felt comfortable knowing I had a pro in my corner and enjoyed working with you. You are simply the best!


"I never got a chance to really thank you for helping us find a house that turned out to be the best home for our family. You were very helpful and patient with us. We are very happy with our home and feel like it was the best move we ever made. I just wanted to thank you again. I want you to know that you will be the first that I will call for any future buy or sell needs. Good job, and keep up the good work."

“My sister said if you need a miracle worker, call Steve. She was right! You sold our home in 5 days after we sat on the market with another broker for 7 months! Thanks for all the great follow through. You made the process very smooth and comfortable.”

-Mike & Emily


 "We really appreciate all your help. If we were ever to move again we would call you in a second and we will definitely recommend you to everyone we know who needs help buying or selling their home, and my parents feel the same way. They have never been impressed with realtors they have hired in the past, but you surprised them. Have a great weekend and thanks again!"    

-Carol & Bob



"Can't thank you enough! It's party time! Due to your excellent service and diligence, we got the house of our dreams! You are all we could want in a real estate agent. We didn't want to get attached to the house since there were other offers, but your experience with foreclosures and short sales worked to our competitive advantage. We will insist everyone we know goes to you!”

-John & Victoria


 "Happy times! Thanks for your diligent service and the regular updates, I really appreciate the follow up you have been providing us. Let us know if you need any testimony as to your fine work and great service. We hope the rest of the year goes well with you."

-Ron & Rebecca


"Thanks for making it so easy! We are really impressed with your professionalism and attention to every detail! We will insist everyone we know hires you as their Realtor!"




 "Thanks for all your hard work! We couldn't be happier! You said you would get us sold at this price and you did! You were great to work with and we will miss talking to you."

-Jim & Helen


“Thanks for making our sale so smooth! After the nightmare of being on the market so long with the other company and then going into escrow with not one, but two bad buyers that backed out, I didn’t think we would ever be able to sell this house! I am so sorry we didn’t list with you in the first place. The night we signed with you, you said we didn’t need to worry about anything, but calling the movers and I was making that call the next week! Please have any future clients call us for a recommendation!”

-Barbara & Jerry 


"Once again, thanks for the great job you did in listing our Shell Oil transferee's home. From the Broker Price Opinion stage through closing, you were on top of everything going on with the file. You have my vote to work with incoming and outgoing transferees any time. Again, I appreciate your professionalism and ability to get homes sold and closed. Hopefully we will have a transferee coming to you or from your area soon. Take care."
