    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $225K in Oakwood, East Lansing, MI.
    We've used Steve to buy and sell multiple times in the Lansing area over the past 10 years. He has very good judgement & is very quick to respond to questions/requests.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $275K in Dewitt, MI.
    Steve Osmar is professional, kind, and knowledgeable. His support staff is equally impressive. Steve and his staff were always available to us via phone or text, and we never had a question he couldn't answer immediately.

    When Steve walks you through the complex processes that underlie a real estate deal, you get the full story, and he makes it all understandable. Furthermore, it felt to us that we were always his first priority.

    Steve and his staff went above and beyond throughout the process of selling our old home and purchasing our new home. Initially, he helped us identify the most advantageous financing arrangement for our circumstances, and after the fact, he even prepared the paperwork to move our new property to our trust, when I mentioned I had neglected to see to it initially.

    If you wish to retain the very best real estate assistance, call Steve. It’s as simple as that.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Lansing, MI.
    I was in charge of selling my father's home after his death. I knew of Steve from previous work he did with my brother-in-law. Initially, he spent several hours with my brother and me. We had so many questions and he was so knowledgeable, that he immediately put us at ease. He listed the house and it sold within a week for $500 more than asking price! Whenever I had questions, and emailed or tested him - I got answers very quickly. He was there at the closing to support and advise me. I had never sold a house before and he made the whole process go smoothly for me. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

    Sold a home in 2017 in Forest Hills, Okemos, MI 48864.
    We first talked with Steve in the Fall of 2016. He gave us advice on what we should do to our Mason MI home to get it ready to put on the market. We met with Steve in May of 2017 and told him we were ready. Steve did a great job of searching for comparables for our vintage home. We agreed to an asking price and the house went on the market in late May. Steve and his staff did a great job of marketing our home to the niche of prospective buyers interested in buying a vintage home near downtown Mason. Within a week after the listing went on line we had three offers. Steve rated the strength of each offer and advised us carefully. We accepted the best offer and Steve handled everything from there. Our house was completely closed on and the new owners moved in by late July.

    Steve was extremely helpful to us through the entire process. He was thorough and responsive at every step of the way. He was low key and never put pressure on us. I would recommend Steve to any Lansing area home seller. Steve knows his stuff.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $125K in Colonial Village, Lansing, MI.
    With only 4 days on the market we had four offers. He gave very good recommendations of what to do to stage the house as well as setting the house at a price that would sell quickly.
    Also he was available at all hours of the day and night. We often texted first thing in the morning and sometimes up to 11pm if it was urgent. Since he has been serving the area for a while he also has very good recommendations for services around town (radon, wood floor refinishing, etc)

    I would highly recommend Steve and I often refer people to him!

    Thank you Gerad! You are great to work with and we wish you & Brittany all the best on your new adventure!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $300K in Dimondale, MI.
    Steve has helped us sell two houses. One we wound up taking off market but he helped us get a full-price offer on the third person through. He was kind when we notified him we were staying and removing the home from market.

    Most recently, Steve helped us through a complicated estate sale that included two escrows and dealing with an out-of-state buyer. He responded in a timely fashion via phone calls, emails and texts. He took the time to walk me through procedures and, when in the bidding process, was able to lobby for us gaining multiple above-asking price offers. He is familiar with rentals, country and urban properties and local regulations. If there was ever something he didn't know outright, he had the connections to get our questions answered. Steve was a piece of sanity during a lengthy, somewhat complicated sale.

    Steve is seasoned and connected. I would abosolutely use him again.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $75K in Westside, Lansing, MI.
    Steve has helped my husband and I several times in the past. He helped us find a renter for our house and when we were ready, Steve was very helpful in getting our house listed and sold. He was very professional and gave us as much time as we needed to ask questions and make a game plan. He advocated for us when negotiating with other realtors and always kept our best interests in mind. His assistant Julie also played a vital role in ensuring that communication was answered promptly. I would highly recommend him to friends and family when buying, selling, or renting.
