Helped me sell a home

Steve has helped me with three transactions over more than 10 years. In the latest transaction he helped me sell my unique custom home which is located in a rural area and was sold with a large amount of acreage included. His extensive contacts helped me through the process of preparing the property for sale and his expertise in marketing was evident throughout the process. Thanks Steve!  Roi Peers 02/22/2015

Steve is an excellent agent, especially his negotiation skills and process knowledge. He helped us to buy single-family house in 2015. The whole home buying has been completed very fast. We will definitely recommend Steve to our friends.  Al Kralin 02/17/2015

Helped me buy a home

Steve helped my husband and I buy our first home. We had a very good experience with him. Steve was highly accessible, we were able to reach him at very short notice whenever we needed him, and consistently checked-in with us throughout the closing process. Steve worked very hard to get us the property we fell in love with, even staying up late into the night with us to put together an offer. He also worked with our lenders to make sure the process ran smoothly. I would highly recommend him. Erin Becker 02/06/2015

Helped me buy a home

Steve was my realtor when I bought my first home in 2008 and his incessant effort in negotiating the best deal with seller at that time to help me maximize the return on investment made me a believer in his abilities and the value he provides to his clients. Since then, he has been my realtor for all of my real estate needs and with the help of his deep insights in the market, I could buy 2 investment properties also which have worked out very well. Recently, I approached Steve to help me to move up by selling my current home and buying a new home. When I did that my expectation was not much on getting a good deal on buying due to current 'seller' favorable market conditions but Steve surprised me in negotiating a deal below market value with builder for a home having all the upgrades. The differentiator in him compared to others is that he spends good amount of time with clients to understand their needs/demands and keeps an eye in the market to get the best match which can fulfill those requirements. The best quality I like in him is that he never forces his clients to do transaction to get his commission.  Narasimha Paila 02/02/2015

I was very pleased with the quality of Steve's service and expertise. This was the 1st home I sold and his patience and knowledge made the transaction go very smoothly. He explained every step of the transaction in a clear and precise matter that was easy for me to understand. He answered all my questions with patience and clarity. We were able to close the deal quickly and with all parties satisfied. I would highly recommend Steve and his partner Lloyd to anyone buying or selling their property.  Olga Degas 01/21/2015

Helped me sell a home

We have been working with Steve Mohseni for our real estate affairs since 2004, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking an honest, knowledgeable and intelligent Realtor, highly skilled to handle every twist and turn involved in a real estate transaction. Steve continued to exceed our high expectations, when we decided to sell our home for something larger. He walked us through the whole process of selling and buying a move-up home, while building our confidence that he could help us make it happen.

Since we were selling our home in a soft market, and competing against new home builders offering many incentives, we knew we had a challenge ahead of us. But Steve came through with flying colors! Not only did we close on the sale of our home in an incredible 9 days, but Steve helped us negotiate an amazing deal on a beautiful, larger home utilizing predominantly equity from the previous home. We were also able to take advantage of the currently low mortgage rates to keep our monthly payments on budget.

Thank you, Steve, for making this a fun and rewarding experience! It's been a blessing to work with you!  Anthony & Stacie Manuel 01/18/2015

Helped me sell a home

I have worked with Steve on multiple occasions buying and selling real estate. Steve has always provided me with great service and professional assistance. But more importantly, he has educated me about the Bay Area housing market over the years - from the height of the housing market, to the lows, short sales, lending environment, differences between condos and single family homes, essentially providing insights to make an informed decision. He is also a great strategist and an advocate on your behalf.  E.C. 11/20/2014

Helped me buy a home

Steve has done an outstanding job helping us buy our new home:

- Took time to understand our needs; patiently educated us on the nuances of the homebuying process.

- Demonstrated excellent knowledge of the Tri-valley market.

- Guided us through a range of options; helped us refine our vision and choose just the right property for us.

- Proved to be a master negotiator, with great insight into buyer's position; he went far beyond the purchase transaction itself, foresaw and advanced our interest every step of the way.

- Saved us a ton of cash on the down payment and closing costs, using his expert negotiating skills and deep knowledge of the process. This was especially valuable, as we were cash-constrained.

- Helped tailor financing to our exact needs; recommended a highly experienced mortgage broker.

- Great communication. Steve has been all business, yet extremely polite and courteous.

Helped us buy a home

“Steve recently helped our family sell our home here in Pleasanton and buy another one nearby. We put our trust in Steve to help us through this nerve-wracking process, and he never let us down. Steve’s recommendations helped us optimize the presentation of our home, which resulted in a quick sale for over our asking price. On the purchase of our new home, Steve’s strategic approach enabled us to quickly locate a new home in the perfect location, and in much better condition than we expected. Most importantly, Steve combines a very warm and genuine personality with excellent negotiation skills and business savvy. Steve is our new go-to guy for any future Real Estate transactions and we give him our highest recommendation.” – David G 10/28/2014

Steve is very professional and very easy to work with. We had absolutely positive experience.

Highly recommended.  adzerushau 07/29/2014

Helped me sell a home

I have sold 2 homes and purchased 1 home through Steve. He is an incredible agent who will not only do the best for you, but will also put you in contact with the best people in the business; mortgage brokers, 1031 exchange experts for investment properties, contractors, etc. Steve has been in the real estate business for over 15 years. I can't recommend his expertise enough.  gypsy 06/28/2014

Helped me sell a home

As someone who has had the pleasure of working with Steve Mohseni as both a buyer and a seller, I would like to take this opportunity to assure that you are in good hands.  I have known Steve since April 2000, when our family moved from Albany, NY to Pleasanton, CA. We were new to California and Steve immediately became an integral part of helping us to take those first steps to help us secure our first Californian home within weeks prior our arrival. He was easy going, forthright, knowledgeable, and most importantly, willing to actually talk to us about our needs and concerns. Therefore, my first thought when I planned to sell or buy any properties, was to contact Steve Mohseni. From the first meeting to the closing, every transaction was done in a professional and efficient manner. The whole experience from beginning to end was pleasant and professional.

Steve possesses high ethical standards and strong organizational skills, has a winning attitude that embraces all challenges and encourages collaboration. In the area of Real Estate, Steve is an effective negotiator and he clearly communicates expectation, has sound judgment and is incredibly reliable. All of these qualities are key in providing and accomplishing a positive outcome whether buying or selling a property.

We have had 2 recent experiences with Steve in the past few months (2014).

First he had listed my home for sale. Steve made practical, cost effective suggestions for things we could do to improve the appearance of the house. He has an unbelievable network, and was always able to help us find the best deal on renovations that needed to be done. Steve arranged the renovation works, coordinated them effectively to achieve the maximum impact. He helped in staging the house, counseled us on financial concerns, and repeatedly went well beyond his call of duty. In a matter of weeks, our house was under contract at a price 10% higher than our asking price.

Second, we were very happy to have Steve work with us to sell our investment property. Steve scheduled all meetings and interactions with tenants at their convenience after work and on weekends. He provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our property for sale. He provided a profile on the house for people touring. He promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. Our investment property was under contract in 10 days after listing. I am confident that the reason we were able to keep negotiations on track after an inspection revealed foundation problems was due to his expertise. We really appreciated Steve's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process.

Additionally, he spent many a long nights going over the offers and contracts with us and when we had questions about the negotiation process, he would step us through each of the possible outcomes. Steve was always there for us as clients and he made us feel like we were the only people he was working with. When our offer was accepted, he met with every single one of the inspectors and helped to calmly take us from accepted offer to close

Steve was the outstanding professional we were looking for and having him work with us made a nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success! Steve Mohseni is our Realtor for life. Thank you for all the assistance in helping us to achieve the American dream!

I absolutely recommend Steve to anybody looking to buy or sell a home   SillyAnh  05/08/2014

Helped me sell a home

I was referred to Steve Mohseni by a friend who had recently bought a house and was very satisfied with his services.

I had bought my home at the height of the housing boom in 2005 and had paid top dollar, so when the crisis hit – the value of my property suffered due to the down turn. As the economy got worse, I became unemployed and was eventually forced to sell - developing a deep distrust in the housing market and the economy in general. I was determined to try and sell my house on my own.

In the process though, I had met Steve and we discussed my situation. He was very helpful in advising me on what needed to be done and how I could go about doing that – without any pressure or expectation that he would be involved.

As it turned out – trying to sell a house on craigslist isn’t as easy as it sounds and when I eventually decided to have a realtor involved – Steve was my first choice.

And he was an excellent choice – not only does he have the experience and expertise, he also has the necessary network of home-repair technicians, handymen, photographers, and cleaning services that are required to put a house properly on the market in the best possible condition for sale – who all work for him at a reasonable cost – for less than you would pay if you tried to hire those services on the open market.

In the end, my house was sold about a week after it hit the market – and at a price only $3K below what I had paid for it. In today’s market – that is as close to a miracle as you can get.

Needless to say, I am very happy that I chose Steve as a realtor and I would highly recommend him to anyone, especially my closest friends. pointreyes 05/07/2014

Helped me sell a home

We have worked with Steve several times in the past and his recent help in selling our apartment building in Oakland is nothing short of master strokes. He guided the sale through all phases with care of details and knowledge: preparation, listing, open house, offer negotiation, and final closing.

It is not that this sale went without issues. We spent hours with Steve working on strategies and understanding the nuances of the real estate transaction and we got to see Steve in action. We are happy with Steve's work and we would recommend him to everybody.

Helped me sell a home

One year ago I put my house on market for $775000 with another realtor. After 3 weeks I had no offer, and I remove house from the market. This time I made decision to go with Steve Mohseni. I new that market did not move much for the last year. Therefore, I agreed with my realtor to list it with $769000. This was a very wise move. House generated a lot of interest and was sold for $823000 on multiple bids. Steve has employed a team of very high professional contractors, who bring every small detail in the house into perfect conditions. However, the budget I give to Steve was very affordable. The best think in Steve approach is very professional strategic thinking on every step of house sailing. Another very important feature of Steve service to client is a great charge of positive attitude in any circumstance. If I ever will need realtor in Bay Area, my choice will be Steve Mohseni. Yakov Blyakhman 05/03/2014

Helped me buy a home

Steve Mohseni is the greatest thing a newly relocated family could ask for. My advice simply put: TRUST STEVE MOHSENI, HE PUTS HIS CLIENTS BEST INTERESTS FIRST! There aren't enough characters allowed on this comments section to really explain how helpful he was in our home buying process. My wife, newborn daughter, and I recently moved from the east coast to the bay area. Steve was recommended to us by a 3rd party relocation consulting firm. We consider ourselves lucky and fortunate to have been linked up with Steve. The thing to me that differentiates Steve from the rest is his technical background, investment background and having the network, knowledge, and experience in the geographical area. Steve is transparent and honest throughout the entire process, he really treats the home buying process as if he was purchasing the home for myself. He goes to bat for his people no matter if it is Tuesday at 9am or Saturday night at 11pm.....if you need his services he will be there. The Bay Area Real Estate market is like no other market in the world, if you have Steve Mohseni in your corner you won't be disappointed when its over!  Joshua Stauffer 12/14/2013

Helped me sell a home

Simply put, Steve far exceeded my expectation in virtually all aspects, and is THE best realtor I've ever interacted with, and that's not an over-statement.

Like many people, I'm extremely busy with my working and family lives and yet I'm very hands-on and demand a lot.

I met Steve through a referral on 8/31 for the first time. He laid out honest opinions and unbiased pros and cons. He went above and beyond helping me with various things about my rental (I live 50 miles away so I had to rely on him big time) even before I decided to list with him on 9/6. The house was put on the market in 11 days on 9/17. I received a few offers and the house went into escrow on 9/27 and sold on 10/7, a total of 31 days from listing to sold while I had tenants (a young couple plus a 2-month-old baby) living in the house.

Everyone could sell in seller's market and yet it's Steve who forsaw things that may happen and methodologically, proactively took care of them from tenant management, property management, inspections, buyer's agent, and to maximizing property value, before I even got a chance to bring them up that made him THE best realtor in the area.  snim73 11/05/2013

Steve Mohseni assisted us as our agent with the purchase of a second investment house within 18 months in San Ramon. The first house purchased through Steve is in Livermore. We are glad we came back to him. Throughout the transaction Steve was very professional, knowledgeable and detail oriented. He has a network of home, roof, chimney and pest inspectors, and contractors, that are responsive and cost effective. He introduced us to a very reasonable loan consultant that we obtained our financing from for the second time, in a successful manner. Because he has a good personality, other professionals respond to him in a positive and timely manner. He has an in depth knowledge of the real estate market both as a selling and a buying agent and is very well versed with properties in most of the East Bay cities including San Ramon, Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, Danville, Castro Valley, etc. We have had experience with other real estate agents in the past, both a seller and as buyer. However, we are particularly impressed with Steve Mohseni for his outstanding service. Steve Mohseni and his team are highly recommended. homysika 05/25/2013

Helped me buy a home

Steve Mohseni is an outstanding agent and all around has been and remains a fantastic help to us as we moved into the Bay Area. He was very patient helping us find the right home, even recommending against us buying more expensive houses because he didn't think it was the right fit. He also recommended changes to a house that would meet our needs better and helped identify a reputable contractor to make those changes. He's the best and I highly recommend him!  sfinger99  04/07/2013

Helped me buy a home

We decided to purchase a home in the crazy real estate market of late 2012… low inventory, extremely high competition and appraisal issues were the most challenges we had to deal with. Thanks to Steve Mohseni’s creativity, we managed to make our offer the winning one and ended up buying a house we really liked. I have to say that the process of buying a house was like a journey with the best friend – Steve, who was rational enough to help us make the right business decisions, coached us on getting a loan that did not require mortgage insurance, while at the same time supportive and patient with the emotional part of the process. Steve also resolved several issues that we encountered during the escrow. Even though we had to agree to buy the property "AS IS" upfront, Steve was able to manage and negotiate $10,000 as closing cost credit from the seller to compensate for some of the repair expenses. I have to say that the process was not easy but we did it together and I can definitely say that we could not do it without Steve. Steve really knows what he is doing and even more he really likes real estate and helping his clients.  Pavel Matsienok 04/03/2013

Helped me buy a home

We are a family moving from NJ to CA on a company relo. We were introduced to Steve through another family friends who went through same process with him. We were very concerned about how to buy a property in Bay Area market which is RED HOT with multiple offers, cash buyouts etc.

Here we got Steve, who was very calm, patient to understand our requirements, felt like a family member looking after our interests. His approaches and strategies are top notch and you almost feel like you are guaranteed to end up in a deal. He never said no to any of my requests, either they could be seeing house multiple times, going over inspections or comparing home values to neighborhood sales etc. The whole process went so smooth, we never felt any sweat or stress. Steve is like a family member to us now.

We highly recommend Steve without any second thought.  Krishna 03/28/2013

Helped me buy a home

I consider our family lucky as we have worked with several high quality agents over the years of our real estate investment experience, but Steve Mohseni, our current agent, is several notches above them all. The strong impression he gave us is that "it is not all about money that he is going to make". He always put our interests at the highest priority. He gave us timely and sincere suggestions, preventing us from getting into irrational bidding war; he spent significant amount of effort in helping us search, identify and analyze the potential candidates, no matter how small the deal was. More importantly, he is very knowledgeable and capable of driving the right deal home. From the strategic level of finding properties that fit into our investment portfolio, approaching different types of listings with different strategies (short sale, fixed uppers, REOs, etc.), to the tactical level of setting up offer price and terms, timing the submission, and negotiating the counter offers, Steve handled everything so smoothly and efficiently. He also patiently elaborated his strategy to us so that we knew we are in good hands in this highly competitive seller’s market. During the whole process, we also got lots of pleasant surprise from Steve, such as saving money on insurance from an insurance agent he recommended, getting access to experts for second opinion, and helping us pricing the rental appropriately. We highly recommend Steve and look forward to working with him again.  Chelsea 03/15/2013

Steve helped my oversea family to buy a home in Pleasanton as well as short selling a home for us. He is very professional, persistant, calm, and alway put our interest first. He never take "No" as an answer and had created miracle in multiple occasions. One of the example is that he got our bank to agree to do a cooperative short sale so that we received relocation allowance when the house was sold. He kept us informed thoughout the process and alway let us know his plan B. As the result, we were able to buy a home less than the market value and also avoided foreclosure in short selling our home. Thank you so much Steve.  Rebecca 01/14/2013

Helped me buy a home

We recently relocated to the Bay Area from the East Coast and to our good luck we got referred to Steve Mohseni for helping us with our home search. Soon after we started out search It became pretty obvious to us that we had entered a housing market which was extremely competitive, driven by historically low levels of housing inventory and mortgage interest rates and a strong pent up housing demand. Right from the beginning and to the very end Steve was absolutely brilliant with his knowledge of the local market, great insight of market fundamentals and his ever optimistic attitude. Also, coming from a different market on the east coast and having to adjust our expectations, Steve was extremely patient with us and made serious efforts in understanding our preferences.

Steve’s negotiation skills and meticulous approach is just top notch and his honesty and dedication is impeccable. Most importantly Steve does not lead only with price; his understanding of buyers, sellers, and the market along with his creativity, presentation, and attention to details greatly enhance the chances of grabbing the right deal in a multiple offer situation (like it did for us). After meeting Steve we have developed a new sense of respect for the realtor profession and we are more than happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a property in the East Bay Area.

After I've done a business with Steve Mohseni I think I was lucky to get introduced to him. He was helping me to buy my first house. Steve is really professional and experienced agent.

I feel comfortable to do that and give highest recommendations to Steve. He deserves them.  Konstantin Kalin 01/04/2013

Steve is wonderful to do business with. His local knowledge in real estate property is unbelievable. Steve was amazing during my home buying process.

To put this review in proper context, I should mention a couple things about myself: I'm a very picky person and a former Realtor who has purchased many personal and investment properties in several markets.

Steve demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and skill representing us with our recent purchase. In today's competitive market, an agent like Steve is essential for buying or selling a property for the best price and terms; he understands the market and takes a proactive, intelligent approach to get deals done.

I would highly recommend him to anyone.  stever96107 12/19/2012

I can't speak highly enough about Steve. We have completed five transactions with Steve, both on the buy and sell side and have more than prospered on all deals. At imes when everyone said you couldn't sell at any price, Steve brought in record prices. His marketing skills are unsurpassed. No one shows a home like Steve. Before meeting Steve we had worked hith many agents over the years and I can honestly say Mohseni is truly peerless. I would never consider making a real estate move without him. I only wish I had known him sooner.  paintseller  10/04/2012

Steve is not just an agent who helps you buy or sell a house. He goes extra miles to truly work for the best of your interest and benefit.

Steve is the consummate professional and his knowledge and insight makes him a clear choice for any real estate needs. Steve cares about his clients and what he does. Throughout the years we have asked him for advice both financial and real estate related and he has always given us a fresh perspective on how to approach different situations. I am proud to call him a friend and look at him as a family member.Koorosh Khashayar 09/30/2012

Helped me sell a home

I have used Steve Mohseni with all of my home purchases and each time the service has been more than outstanding. His expertise starts with his local knowledge but extends to the overall home buying process and he even gives useful advice to buyers on how to formulate and set goals, both long and short-term, and ties it in to your overall financial goals. He even shares his personal goals as examples. His negotiation skills are excellent and he always includes the buyer on his strategy and includes a best alternative to the agreement in the event that the negotiation reaches a stalemate. I was so impressed that I've recommended him to all my friends and acquaintances that are interested in buying in the Tri-Valley area. Many have used him and have had the same experience. With my first house purchase I talked with many realtors; some seemed uninterested (one even seemed to blow me off due to my then lower buying range) and others were clearly not knowledgeable of the process, seeming to have just been able to pass the real estate exam. Steve is VERY experienced and downright brilliant--previous to this career he was an engineer in Silicon Valley. I will only recommend Steve for a property purchase.
