April was our realtor. And she did an excellent job of selling my 91 year old father's house. She was there every time we needed her and she took care of things perfectly. She is very friendly, very thorough, very efficient, and knowledgeable. We are thrilled with our service.

Marci Johns was the realtor for myself, my sister and brother, to sale our family home. Can you imagine getting 3 people, not to mention the opinions of 3 spouses to all agree on the terms of a sale. She answered all calls, text and emails immediately. She was professional, patient, expedient and she aced it. Thanks Marci.

Autumn Stivers was a hero! She rescued my family & I from a downward spiraling house, to our dream home! She took more time than any other realtor that we have worked with. She won over the hearts of our children. She made sure we knew what was going on at all times & that it was the in the best interests of us! I have recommended her to two family members, and will continue to recommend her every chance I/we get!

It was my pleasure working with Isaiah Ullery this past summer! I was the representative of my mother's estate and he guided me through the whole process like a true professional! There were some unusual circumstances with my mother's property, but he was knowledgeable and did an outstanding job. He goes above and beyond and communicates well. If I were looking to buy or sell any real estate, this is definitely who I would contact!!

My husband and I just moved from out of state. We worked with Isaiah, and he was awesome!! This was our first home buying experience, and Isaiah made it stress free! I really recommend this lovely real estate group!

I truly enjoyed working with Isaiah. Not only is he a great guy to work with, he is very knowledgeable and always made time to talk and answer any questions that came up, even last minute. Isaiah was fun to work with also which added to the ease of the process of finding and buying a home. He took the time on a holiday weekend to change up his schedule to show me a home and took his time to go through the home with me instead of rush through. Isaiah's job doesn't end after the sale either. He has kept in touch to see how things are going. Isaiah is an all around great guy and would recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell a home Steve Lew's group should be proud to have someone like Isaiah on their team.

Steve helped us find our first home. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I didn't know much about buying a house but he helped so much and guided us through it. He was wonderful to work with and a great help in finding the perfect home for my family. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the future. Thanks Steve!!

We found ourselves in a ‘must sell’ with the loss of a loved one. We needed guidance and a quick sale with a good outcome. Redbeard worked FAST, great communicator, so much patience and above all else he went the extra mile for us when he didn’t have to. If you are looking for someone who listens to your needs? Look no further, Redbeard is your man!
