I recently worked with Steve to sell my condo and purchase another one. Both sales were complicated due to my personal time constraints and needs. However, both transactions were completed and they could have not gone better with anyone else! Steve went above and beyond several times through this process to make sure I felt comfortable and was taken care of. I felt as if I had a true friend on my side through the whole process. He was very knowledgeable and used logical strategies while remaining honest and clear with me all along. I was out of the country for two weeks while I had two transactions in escrow and Steve was available at any hour to talk. He helped me find a home I love and made sure I sold my old place for a good price. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him!

Steve is *AMAZING*!!!!

I selected Steve Ploetz as my realtor after reading the glowing reviews for him on Yelp. I couldn't be happier!

Steve is a great listener, attentive, friendly, calm, and genuinely cares about his clients! He also has great connections.

My family found a property through Zillow and an open house before we'd selected a realtor. When I wanted to make an offer, I contacted Steve to find out how to make it possible. He hooked me up with lender Dave Pennington of RPM Mortgage, who preapproved us in one day so we could make an offer the following day. Our loan was funded just 21 days later, allowing us to close quickly.

Steve was wonderful in the negotiating process with the seller, giving me insights on what the seller and his realtor might be thinking, making his recommendations and always deferring pleasantly to my preferences. He came up with original ideas in the final negotiation with the seller after the home inspection. He was downright amazing!

The seller ended up being a nightmare, failing to turn over garage door opener, mail, and HOA keys on closing (transferring only the front door key). Steve continued to spend great lengths of time on me after we closed. He resolved things at his own expense so I wouldn't have to wait as he continued pursuing with the seller, investing time after the sale had concluded to do everything he could to make me happy.

Choose Steve. He'll take good care of you and make you happy. He's an earnest, caring, innovative, professional, astounding realtor!

Steve Ploetz was recommended to us by our lender David Pennington at RPM Loans in Cardiff.

And that was the best recommendation we got.

We offered on a total of three homes, and were rejected on two, yet he helped us stay confident that we would find a home.

And we did find the perfect home in the La Costa/Carlsbad area, which was in our price range as well.

I am confident in saying that we would not have found our perfect home if not for Steve Ploetz's help in the process. I would recommend him to any of my friends who are buying a home, and that is the highest honor I can give to anyone.

Steve is professional, knowledgable, available, and patient. I am so thankful to have had his expertise and advice throughout our home buying experience. He negotiated on our behalf and if it weren't for his commitment to us, we probably would not have got the home in the end. He helped us navigate a difficult set of circumstances with the appraisal of the home and we are thankful for it. You will be very happy to have him represent you!

Steve is definitely on top of things! He always communicates and does it with a quickness! He goes the extra mile even if the property doesn't have a high selling value, he still treats you like you are purchasing or selling a million dollar home!

I just have my house be sold by Steve smoothly. No matter how good you think your house is, you must select the good listing agent in the beginning, otherwise, the good property will become hard-selling one when any sale mistake is made to it. Steve is the type of the high end agent. No matter from his top-notch staging to the every detail of email of his prompt responses, he shows his high professional, very experienced, smart and efficient skills. He is the great agent that everyone is looking for; I highly recommend him to anyone who needs to sell or buy properties.

Steve is a very friendly down to earth person. He was a big help to me and my wife through this very stressful process. We almost felt like we had known him for years. Also loved his sense of humor. Would recommend him to anyone we know that would be in need of a realtor.

Steve Ploetz was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and a very effective communicator. He answered all of our questions and responded to all of our calls/emails in a very prompt manner throughout the entire process of purchasing our home.

We are both busy professionals and were dealing with difficult sellers. Steve worked with us to make the entire process as easy as possible for us given our hectic schedules. Steve went above and beyond what would be expected of a realtor to make sure that we were satisfied and taken care of.

We would definitely recommend Steve as a realtor to anyone and will be in touch with him for any future home purchases or sales.

Steve Ploetz has every skill needed to sell a property, is kind and patient beyond his years and can be trusted with the most valuable asset we have to sell: our home. Having been a Realtor and later a Certified Appraiser myself for many years I feel lucky to have finally met someone so earnest and well qualified, detail minded and communicative as he is.

I have known & admired Steve since he was much shorter than he is today.

Therefore, I thought of him first and only.

I personally know that Steve is very caring and compassionate, and I wanted to help his real estate career along. (I didn't necessarily think he needed my help, but every commission helps!)

The circumstances of our selling were not ordinary, and Steve, I knew, would be the perfect person to help me through all the turmoil. He was patient and extremely kind when I was feeling overwhelmed. He took care of many details for mem and he was positive at all times.

The house originally sold in 2 1/2 weeks, but the buyers had problems selling their property, therefore we did need to hold on to the house longer and drop the price. However, I am happy with the results. Thank you, Steve, for all your hard work and all the help you gave me.
