"Steve Hansen is as good as it gets!"
"Steve Hansen is as good as it gets! when it comes to the right combination of knowledge, follow-through, and honesty. I first met Steve over a year ago at one of his open houses. What immediately struck me was how I did not feel like I was talking with a salesman. He was approachable and knowledgeable without being pushy. When I was ready to sell my home in September, I took the opportunity to reacquaint myself with Steve. After a great discussion of his vision and marketing strategy for selling houses, I tasked him with addressing a few of my concerns specifically related to my home. His subsequent follow-up and thoughtfulness sealed the deal for me. Since this was my first time as a seller, I expected to be overwhelmed. Surprisingly, this experience became minimally stressful because of Steve. He was always accessible (and quickly responsive) and devoted quality time in answering my questions. When there was a need for some repair/inspection work, Steve had contacts readily available. I chatted with one of his go-to guys and he came across just as honest as Steve. If you are looking for someone who cares just as much about your selling/buying experience as, if not more than, the outcome, then Steve Hansen is your guy!"
"Steve accurately evaluated that contingency and kept tabs on the other escrow to avoid any adverse effect on my closing."
"Steve was a big help with the sale of my home in the Woodlands Subdivision in Walnut Creek in April-May 2018. Some of Steve's strengths are attention to detail (not lazy!), ability to overcome any complications that may arise, motivation and drive to get the job done, positive energy, a likeable personality, common sense, and a stable of useful services (staging, contractors, etc.) he brings with him. Starting with the staging, which was top-notch, Steve succeeded in efficiently selling my home in a shifting market, dealing effectively with any hiccups that occurred along the way. The transaction closed on time (30-day escrow), even with the complexity of the buyers first having to close escrow on their existing home. Steve accurately evaluated that contingency and kept tabs on the other escrow to avoid any adverse effect on my closing. Thanks for your help, Steve."
"Steve proved to be a person of high integrity and follow-through."
"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."

"His performance was outstanding ..."
"Steve represented us in our recent home sale in "Woodlands" area of Walnut Creek. His performance was outstanding, here's why: 1. Deep experience with market and prices. 2. Strong experience how to price a home for sale. 3. Excellent use of technology. 4. Proven roster of people for inspections, repairs, staging. 5. Outstanding negotiation skills. 6. Critically important attention to detail in the deal/docs. 7. We sold less than 10 days and over list price. He's earned our highest recommendation."

"I couldn't be more pleased with Steve and the results."
"I was faced with trying to sell the family home from 360 miles away. The house was in bad shape . Fortunately, I was lucky enough to find Steve and hire him as the broker. He introduced me to great contractors and provided direction to complete a major renovation project. The project was a huge success. The house sold the first week on the market at $50,000 over asking. Thanks to Steve, I was able to have a great experience selling the family home without having to get on a plane to orchestrate the process. I couldn't be more pleased with Steve and the results."
"We honestly couldn't have been more pleased with the process of buying a home, and with Steve himself."
"Steve recently helped us find our first home in the Bay Area and I had to take a moment to write up a review for him and his services. We honestly couldn't have been more pleased with the process of buying a home, and with Steve himself. He's truly a great, honest, caring, and thoughtful person and that comes across in dealing with him during the home buying process. Because buying a home is such a personal endeavor, you want someone who feels like they're on your side, have you covered, are patient with any questions you have, and can walk you through the process, whether it's the first time you're buying or the fiftieth! Steve's that person, he made our journey pleasant, knows the industry, the area, the trends, and so much more extremely well. He's just overall such and incredible realtor you should really consider him. We'll be referring all our friends and colleagues to Steve when they look out in the Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill/Concord area and would absolutely love the chance to work with him again. He's already been invited to our housewarming party! Thanks so much Steve!"
"Thanks for making our sale so smooth!"
"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!"

"From the first showing through to the final transaction, Steve was very professional, and his Real Estate expertise showed through during every facet of the deal."
"I would recommend Steve in a heartbeat. This home was not even on our radar when Steve brought it to our attention. Having known Steve for a few years through various Eichler / modern home showings, he knew the type of home we liked and he called me when this came on the market. From the first showing through to the final transaction, Steve was very professional, and his Real Estate expertise showed through during every facet of the deal. Perhaps most important - he put up with me during the whole ordeal... Thanks Steve!"
"Thanks for your diligent service and the regular updates, ..."
"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."

"Have used him for 6 transactions locally and would not use anyone else."
"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."
"We will insist everyone we know goes to you!"
"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 and Victoria
"We really appreciate all your help."
"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 and Bob
"You made the process very smooth and comfortable."
"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 and Emily
"...I will call for any future buy or sell needs."
"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."

"A full-time professional who is caring and compassionate while representing clients."
"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."
"Without question, we would have him represent us again if we were buying or selling another home."
"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."

"After 8 very successful transactions with Steve, we happily recommend him!"
"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!"
