I met with another broker (RedFin) that told me I couldn't sell my house anywhere near the price I ended up selling it for (a 20% increase)! When you sell your home, you want to get the best price and the largest network. Steve gave us the right price and the largest network." - Paul & Heather Fowler
Steve McEwen sold our home twice. Both times the price was over list. When the first deal fell through Steve had an equal offer from a new buyer within a week, and we closed in 30 days. We cannot be happier. Steve McEwen is the best real estate agent we have ever met. Thank you!" - John Sostak
Throughout my 30+ year career in new home construction I have been told that a great real estate agent can achieve a greater sales price for your home or property. I have been suspicious until meeting and working with Steve. Steve has a great deal of knowledge with architecture, floor plans and desirable features in the home. He listens and absorbs your knowledge to improve his presentation, is a great problem solver and obviously has an engaging personality. He knows his neighborhoods and the local housing market intimately, he returns voicemails and emails with lightning speed, he is up on and uses the latest technology and he has a great network. Last and most important, Steve represents the highest level of integrity, honesty, sincerity, and trustworthiness. I highly recommend Steve McEwen for all your real estate needs." - Kevin Davis | President | Fairfield Homes
Steve, and his wife Robin, are a dynamic duo with a wealth of knowledge and experience that made the entire process of moving seamless. Their expertise helped us make the best decisions on both the buying and selling side. We were extremely impressed by their honestly, high standards and morals. Moving can be so stressful, but Steve and Robin were patient and so diligent. Their work ethic and positive attitude gave us confidence that we would successfully achieve our goal, and we did. When you talk, they listen. They are hardworking, great people who you can really trust, and we would highly recommend them.” - Ethan & Jodi Peterson
We had a lot of interest (many showings quickly and great turnout for the open house). Steve was definitely able to get word out and generate a buzz around the sale of our house.
We also thought that Steve brought a lot of experience and knowledge to the negotiation. We learned a lot working with Steve on the negotiation and were very pleased with the result. Steve also worked with the appraiser to make sure they had all the right comps to insure our appraisal came through with a fair price. The final result was a timely sale for more than our asking price. Steve also stepped up to help us through some issues that we had with the builder of our new house. Steve did not shy away from some difficult conversations. He was instrumental in helping us resolve some major issues with the builder. - Ryan & Amy Powers
My family and I had the pleasure of working with Steve on three real estate transactions this year, across a wide range of house values. From a smaller investment property sale to the sale of our existing home and the purchase of a new one, Steve provided excellent service that resulted in three closings. He is extremely responsive, and made us feel like we were his only client. He provided accurate ranges of values for the homes we were selling, giving us the best case and most likely outcomes so we were able to make informed decisions. On our home purchase, he helped us make an excellent decision by providing the right comparable sales and values, advice on interior and exterior work and the related costs, and insight into the neighborhood, schools, and projected values in the future.
Steve’s friendly and outgoing demeanor allowed him to work closely with the other agents to ensure we had our property priced correctly, getting quick feedback after open houses and showings. He also made sure everyone stayed on track for a smooth and successful closing. Lastly, he has an extensive network of contacts at other brokers to provide insight into values, as well as contacts you need for a sale or purchase, such as painters, handymen, inspectors, and lawyers. Importantly, Steve is supported by a very strong Coldwell Banker network of agents and agencies, and his ability to tap into that network led to our receiving two very strong offers on our home, which ultimately led to a successful sale of our existing home and the purchase of a new home quickly and smoothly. I highly recommend Steve McEwen and his team, McEwen Marketing Group. They definitely “make Chicago move”, and I would not hesitate to use him again. - Al & Oksana Yoshimura
He had been referred to me by my sister-in-law and, had I looked at the types of (larger, more expensive) properties he normally handles, I likely wouldn't have reached out to him for my small condominium. But, naively, I did, and Steve and his team treated me with an extraordinary level of service, attention and respect I didn't expect. My listing was priced right, and I had multiple offers within 12 hours. My condo was ultimately sold over listing price. Also, as I relied on him for referrals to a mortgage broker and an attorney, the people he recommended turned out to be the best partners for both my sale/purchase transactions, which turned out to be complicated. I couldn't have asked for a better team. Throughout this stressful time, Steve was constantly in touch and, even after close, he checked in to make sure I'd settled in all right. I feel extremely fortunate and grateful to have worked with Steve and his team during this stressful time in my life. They made the process immeasurably easier. - Kimberly S. Green
