  • 6 month Sale!

    Mickie

    We really appreciated the fact that you outlined a definitive plan for the marketing of our property and stuck to it.  The fact that you were open to suggestions (as time wore on) regarding additional marketing efforts, also gave us a high level of comfort.  Best of all you sold our property within  6 months of your listing.  All in all, it was one of the more pleasurable real estate experiences we’ve had and we thank you for that.

  • Finding the right fit

    Don

    We worked with Steve for two years, waiting for the “right” property to become available.  He was thorough, professional and patient throughout the entire process.  We found Steve to be extremely responsive, immediately available or quick to respond to emails or phone calls.  He was extremely helpful in identifying  excellent mortgage arrangements, contractors and other new owner related issues.

    We are writing to express our appreciation for the excellent job you did for us on the purchase of our new home in Lake Placid.  We turned to you because of your reputation for knowing the market and working with your clients to get results.  To say that you lived up to your reputation hardly does you justice.  We particularly appreciated your professional approach to all matters; attention to detail from prospect to closing; ready responses to our questions; and staying connected through meetings, email and telephone.  Perhaps most of all, we appreciate the genuine concern you showed for us from the start to finish of our search for a home.  We could not have done any better than we did, both with the purchase of our new home and with you as our agent

  • A professional and a Gentleman

    Anonymous

    Steve Reynolds is a real estate professional in every sense of the word, but more importantly, he is a gentleman. My wife and I purchased a property roughly 300 miles from our permanent residence. Steve gave 110 percent to every request we made, starting with looking at approximately 12 properties in 2 days. He reassured us at every step in the process, he was working for us, offering advice and details when asked, not pushing any agenda but ours. Once my wife and I decided on a property, Steve, working with us, negotiated a deal that my wife and I were very pleased with. As I mentioned previously, we were 300 miles away, and had many questions and concerns. Steve returned every text or call within 15 minutes. We were very confident we were his top priority, and his attention to details was beyond reproach. Essentially, Steve was our eyes and ears in Jay, NY, and he worked diligently with us throughout the entire process. He has a unique ability to reduce the stress that comes purchasing a home, let alone the fact this one was a long way from our home in MA. As a result of Steve’s solid work ethic, and his ability to work exceeding well with the seller’s agent, my wife and I purchased a beautiful log home at a fair price. My wife and I did not know Steven Reynolds prior to requesting that he be our agent. We feel very fortunate that Steve worked for us.Once again, a true real estate professional in every sense of the industry, and just as importantly a gentleman.

  • First-time buyers

    Buying your first house is not always an enjoyable experience but with Steve we had knowledge, experience, and professionalism on our side. Steve was always available at the drop of a hat to look and re-look at homes of interest and in the end helped us find the perfect first home.

  • Every step of the way

    Anonymous

    Steve was there every step of the way to help me though my first property purchase. He was keenely aware of the type of property I was looking for, and his knowledge of the Adirondacks helped me narrow in and find the perfect location. During the negotiation and contract processe, he kept things moving forward and on track to close the deal. Couldn’t have done it with out him.

  • Negotiating the best price

    Anonymous

    My husband and I found a piece of property that we liked. Steve recommended that we look at other comparable properties to be sure it was the right piece of property for us; he provided us with details of other listings and toured several other properties with us. Steve was thorough in his search and honest in his assessment of the properties we looked at. Steve carefully negotiated with the seller’s agent to a price that was within our means, and persistently moved the process along.

  • 3 month sale

    Anonymous

    Steve is a very personable young man that excels at marketing residential real estate. Steve operates in a market that is popular with both primary residents and vacation property buyers. Steve listed our home during a relatively down time in the market but was able to generate several showing an ultimately a buyer. Listing to contract was about 3 months. We were pleasantly surprised by that. Steve has excellent communication skills. He kept us well informed throughout the process.

  • True professional

    Anonymous

    Both my husband and I were very impressed with Steve’s knowledge and understanding of the type of home we were looking for. His respone to our needs were immediate and with much kindness. Always kept us well informed, never had to ask. If you are looking to buy a new home or sell your present home, you will not be disappointed. Steve is truly a professional….. Thank you Steve for helping us find our dream vacation home.

  • Vacation Buyers

    Couldn’t ask for a better Broker! We were thrilled with the excellent service we received. Buying a vacation home six hours from where we live required lots of extra help from Steve, which he was happy to provide.

  • Finding the right house

    Anonymous

    Steve is a very professional real estate sales person. He helped us out of a bad situation with a house that was wrong for us. He then helped us get a really good deal on the house that was the right one. If we are ever to sell or buy a house in the future, Steve is the only person we would want to represent us!

  • 1031

    Anonymous

    Our real estate transaction was a bit more complex than usual as it was a 1031 like kind exchange. Steve was aware and knowledgeable of the challenges and complexities of 1031’s. I highly recommend Steve if you are looking to relocate your investment property.

  • Frist time property buyer

    Steve was a true professional in helping me purchase my first property. Whenever I had questions concerning the property Steve had an answer for me the same day. Everything ran smoothly and I was impressed with Steve’s knowledge of the real estate market in Lake Placid. I would highly recommend Steve Reynolds!

  • Proactive and Thorough

    Anonymous

    Steve quickly researched and understood the unique characteristics of the beautiful undeveloped property in the central Adirondacks which our family sold in 2011. He conducted excellent tours of the land and lakes to prospective buyers, and consistently communicated timely and helpful suggestions to improve our offer to sell. Steve also demonstrated a dogged willingness to work with both counsels of the transaction to ensure the legal details and questions from buyer and seller were addressed and answered. He is proactive and thorough.

  • Knowlegeable and understanding

    Anonymous

    Steve helped us purchase some property in Lake Placid. We found him to be knowledgeable about the area and understood what we were looking for. He also managed to maintain contact with us without being pushy (the seller wasn’t moving so it took a while). Should we ever decide to sell this place or buy again, we would certainly use Steve. Good guy to work with and recommend him without hesitation.

  • More than helpful

    Anonymous

    Steve was more than helpful. We never would have been able to make it through the home buying process without him. Steve was very helpful with finding new properties as well as helping us navigate the confusing decision making process.

  • Lakefront property

    Anonymous

    Steven did an excellent job selling my lakefront property. He quickly generated demand, helped to negotiate a great deal, and got the transaction closed. Steve is a true professional – he always provided fantastic advice, and always followed up. I highly recommend Steven.

  • Knowlegeable and thorough

    Anonymous

    Steve was an excellent resource for my husband and I in our search to find the appropriate home in Lake Placid. It was evident that he worked hard to find options that fit our needs and was very interested giving us multiple options along the way. He is extremely knowledgeable of current market trends in this region and was very thorough and honest throughout the process. As a first time home buyer, I would highly recommend him.

  • Professional to a tee

    Anonymous

    Steve Reynolds is a professional to a tee. His knowledge of the Adirondacks, both historical, current and particularly concerning the real estate is exhaustive and very impressive. Steve has connections from several angles to every corner of the park, which allows for a complete perspective on any transaction to give you all the information necessary to make informed decisions. He is a tireless advocate in the negotiation process. I have heard other realtors cringe when they have to go up against Steve because he is so thorough and straight forward. I have no doubt that after a 6 month negotiation process where we evolved through 3 or 4 deals, our final purchase agreement, negotiated by Steve Reynolds, was the best deal for just the right property for us. Without reservation, Steve Reynolds has my highest recommendation

  • 4 time client

    Anonymous

    Having done 4 separate transactions with Steve over the last 7 years, I can honestly say each one has been a pleasure. Being a lifelong resident of the area, his local knowledge is second to none. He is young enough to have the energy necessary to keep up with the most demanding clients yet has enough experience to negotiate the most complex transactions. Whether it is commercial or residential, I highly recommend Steve if you are considering a real estate investment in the Adirondacks. He will serve your interests well.

  • Fantastic resource

    Anonymous

    Steven and I looked at houses in the lake placid area over the course of several years while i was renting. He has a great understanding of the local market and was a patient and receptive agent who eventually found me exactly what i was looking for as soon as it hit the market. I would recomend working with him he has a great understanding of the process start to finish and is very receptive to his customers needs and goals.
