It is a real pleasure to guide a first-time home buyer through the exciting process of purchasing a home and helping that customer with what schools, doctors, attorney, restaurants and everything else that he can do to help them get situated in a new community or helping a seller with getting the right people to do repairs, stage and prep the home prior to listing. Stephen loves to get referrals from past customers knowing that they have trust and confidence in him.

Steve helped me with purchasing a house for my son while he was in college. Not only did we get a great house, but Steve helped me buy right so I was able to sell it with Steve 5 years later at a large profit. During the time I had the house, Steve was helpful in finding me qualified service people whenever I had needs.

Steve was great to work with on finding the right property. He never tired of how often we would check out a property and then decide not to pursue a purchase. So, he and we kept looking and finally found the right property.

Charles R Hastings

We had our home listed with Steve our place sold for full price in record time all we can say is that we were treated like family and he did everything possible to sell our home just dont get better than that thanks Steve. Rich / Nancy

Rich / Nancy

If there is a rating higher than 5 stars then Stephen Gardner deserves it. He is professional, knowledgeable, and informative. My husband originally called Steve to tour a certain property which we were interested in. This first meeting started a journey where Steve was kind enough to meet and show us whatever home we wanted to tour. It was pure joy to have a broker who wasn't a car salesman. Steve has a easy way with clients, loads of patience and a great sense of humor. Steve has also aligned himself with different contractors, should you need one, which we found very helpful. We are now in our forever home thanks to Steve.

ALICE ANDRE

Steve is awesome

Cynthia Gambrell

Steve provided timely and professional real estate market services to us for more than 10 years. It started when we purchased our condo and continued all the way to selling the unit. We live in NC and found Steve always responsive when we need assistance such as contact information for managing the property as a rental unit. When we contemplated the sell, he gave us up- to-date assessments on the market and accurately advised us on the best time and price to sell. He listed our unit in July, had a buyer within a week, and closing followed promptly and effectively in early August.

Alvin and Maudie Powell

Best Realtor out in The Port Orange, Daytona area and beyond. Don't pass up a chance to work with a real professional who's honest, considerate, focused and motivated. All this contributes to a long term great realtionship with the community. This may be house 7? That we've worked with him.

Vivian Gail Kelly

Stephen Gardner is the Exceptional Realtor. He has been handling sells and purchases for 3 generations of our family. I couldn't possibly working with anyone else, he does his due diligence, move property as quickly as the market will allow and can find the best price for those who are looking to purchase. He knows his research, while being able to understand anyone's needs from the elderly to the first time home buyers. He's an all around good guy as well, confident and friendly, no arrogance here. He has no problems rolling up his sleeves to get the job done. We look forward to working with him again and again.

Gail Kelly

Thomas & Laura Corrado

Steve is awesome. He keeps me informed at each step I will always have Steve do my reality stuff buy or sell. I have spoke to Susan Adler and she was very pleasant. I have know Steve for several years he sold my Mom's home and my God fathers home over the last several years always outstanding professional, very fair easy deal with and gets the job done.

Cynthia Gambrell

Steve is AMAZING!!!! My partner and I were moving from the Northeast and were on a very tight schedule to find a home. Steve was very efficient in terms of selecting homes for that would meet our needs. His communication was excellent in person and also remotely. He walked us through the entire process and continued to be in touch even after we closed on our home. Thank you Steve for your exceptional work!

Margarita

Steve has done a great job helping us purchase several properties in the last 10 years. He gets answers to questions very quickly and is easy to get in touch with. I have worked with other realtors that do not return calls in a timely manner if at all, but not Steve.

Rob Horner

Steve helped get my mother's home sold quickly for a fair price. His deep knowledge of the local market made that possible: smart pricing, a great marketing plan, and a strategy that was right on the nose. He also turned me on to some skilled and reasonable local contractors who helped with the last-minute repairs. He'll be my first call when I'm ready to buy or sell again.

Maggie Karda

When it came time to sell the family home, in which I grew up, I wanted to find someone who would not only sell the house, but see the house with all it meant to my family and me. Steve was AMAZING! He really put his all into seeing my siblings and me through the process. Selling this old house had its problems, but Steve went above and beyond to meet with workers, check on the house in our absence (we all live out of town), get us through the red tape, and he treated the house and the work as if it were his own. His marketing skills sold the house quickly, when two other realtors did not even find the showings we needed. There is no question, that the next time I am in need of a realtor in Volusia County, Steve Gardner will be first choice!

Shelley

Steve was our closing agent for our home at 404 N. Willow Ave. Port Orange Fla. 32127. I wrote a testimonial when I was mailed a request after our closing. Please refer to that. Steve is an exceptional realtor and I would recommend him to anyone buying a home. He is a true professional, honest and dependable. From my experience over many years buying at least 5 houses and 7 pieces of land I can honestly say that most real estate agents these days could learn a lot from him on how to treat people. Steve R. Waters

Steve & Terri Waters

My Husband and I recently purchased a home and used Steve Gardner as our realtor. From day one we felt extremely comfortable with him and knew he had our best interests in mind. He knew exactly what we were looking for and helped us through the entire process from beginning to the very end. We would use Steve again in the future and without hesitation would recommend him to any of our friends and family members!
