I would highly recommend Steven Torres to anyone looking to purchase a home; especially first time home buyers. Purchasing a home is definitely an emotional roller coaster, but I had the added pressure of purchasing my very first home while my husband was overseas, after only having lived in Southern California for less than a year. I am so glad I found Steven! He is an honest, patient, and knowledgeable realtor. We hit our fair share of bumps along the road, as most people do, but Steven kept me informed every step of the way and helped me to feel comfortable making decisions that would be most beneficial for me. He really is a stand-up and personable guy who looks out for the best interest of his client, far before his interest of closing a sale. I am currently having some unforeseen issues with my home after closing, but Steven is still very much in the picture helping me settle these things with the sellers. He has been just as responsive and available to me after the sale, as he was throughout the purchasing process.  Trust me; you definitely want someone like Steven on your team when embarking on this journey!

Dennis & Kumiko

As we are spending our first full day in our new home, it is with great pleasure and satisfaction that we can recommend Steven Torres.  Looking back over our entire relationship with Steve, we could not have asked more of a Realtor.

Beginning with our early stages of “looking” at homes in the San Diego area, Steve prepared a search report focused on our desires, which showed us existing and new-listing homes within our criteria as they came on the market.  In this area, he did not inundate us with homes out of our price range or out of our desired area of San Diego County.  He regularly sent us these reports with houses just within our desired criteria.

As we got “more serious” about finding a home, Steven introduced us to a wonderful mortgage broker who helped us pre-qualify for the loan we needed for the price and location of home we desired.

With Steven’s home reports and other internet resources we found a number of homes we were interested in viewing.  Every time we contacted Steven, he was more than willing to show us these homes as well as others he felt we might wish to consider.

Even when he was on a family vacation, he arranged to have another Realtor show us a couple of homes we “really” wanted to see immediately. He also maintained email contact with us throughout his family vacation.

Once we found “our new home”, Steven negotiated on our behalf and provided us counseling to arrive at a mutually desirable purchase price for our new home.  Once this was established, he continued to support us through the entire “closing” process.

Small things liked always responding to emails quickly, never being too busy for our needs, and just taking the time to drive out to our new home so he could hand us the keys to our new home, are just some of the things that make Steven Torres a great Realtor.

Steven is a true professional with all the qualities a great Realtor should have.  We are very fortunate we found him.

Steven is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the entire home buying process. For this first time home buyer he was remarkably patient, teaching me the process, and showing me more houses than other realtors. He is invested in the community, honest, and forthright with his opinion of neighborhoods. Steven took the time to get to know me in order to help find homes that would appeal to me. I recommend him wholeheartedly and would utilize his services again.

I started working with Steven after the realtor I was working with previously wasn’t giving me the dedication I needed while searching for my first home. Steven was very proactive and did a great job of understanding what I wanted and finding places to show me. He has a great understanding of the market areas that he services and provided excellent information without ever pressuring me into any place. I would definitely recommend Steven if you are purchasing a home.

We had the pleasure of working with Steven on the purchase of our new home.  Steven is a true professional and most importantly has a wealth of knowledge about the Oceanside area.  He was able to give suggestions about neighborhoods, current market trends, and was able to answer all our questions about the home buying process in California.  He is extremely flexible and willing to meet you on your time.  He returns your calls quickly and goes above and beyond to be there to help you no matter what.  His advice was invaluable and after we talked, he always made us feel better about whatever decision we were about to make.   The home we wanted to purchase had a few hurdles to overcome, but with Steven’s help it was much less stressful than expected and the deal was closed on time.  Steven is exactly what I was looking for in a real estate agent: very approachable, HONEST, and just an all-around great guy.  I highly recommend Steven to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home.

Steven S. Client, Buyer

I am extremely happy with the experience Steven made buying a home for myself and my wife. I had originally contacted Steven on a Friday morning to see his earliest availability and he catered to MY schedule every single time. He was available that same day and at the time I was free.

Due to my wifes schedule we needed to meet on a weekend at one point and Steven was more than happy to accomodate us and walk us through the home. Steven is a very punctual individual and not once was I ever waiting on him. Customer service to me goes beyond a smile and a hand shake, Steven does an excellent job and goes above and beyond what most realtors would do and with my wife and I we always felt like he put us first.

When all was said and done we closed with a 30 day escrow and absolutely zero issues. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate Steven a 10, which encompasses his knowledge, sincerity, and customer service. I would highly recommend using Steven when purchasing a home and will definitely be using him again if the occasion should ever arise.

Amy Client, Buyer

My husband and I found Steve randomly from realtor dot com. We could have gone with a bunch of others because of course everyone has a realtor they think is the best. Within seconds of meeting Steve I knew he was an honest guy, and that’s so important! We ended up sticking with him for our home buying process, and we’re so glad we did. Steve gave us his honest opinion and helped us through this VERY stressful process.

If you’re looking for someone who will help you stay within your budget, educate you in this process, and not let you get in over your head, this is the Realtor for you.

Bill and Sue Kehoe, Oceanside, CA Client, Buyer

When we decided to begin a search for a starter home/condominium for our daughter, the posted referrals on local real estate agents made Steven Torres of Elite Premier Properties Realty an obvious stand out. From our first meeting, and throughout our search together, Steven demonstrated a care for our housing needs and a parent’s mutual concern for our daughter’s comfort and safety.

We were able to identify an ideal refurbished unit that met our needs fairly quickly, which allowed Steven to go to work implementing a short escrow (our request), and begin driving the usual flood of paperwork and signatures along quickly and efficiently.

Working with Steven is like having a favorite (young) uncle in the real estate business. His command of the process and friendly approach to what can sometimes be a draining process was a breath of fresh air for us, not having been in the house-hunting business for many, many years. Steven’s motto is “if you like my work. referring me to your friends is the best compliment you can give me”. We heartily recommend the services of Steven Torres to you as you start your search for a new home.

Kurt K. Client, Buyer

One of Steven’s great assets is his patience and his resolve to find that elusive “perfect” house for his clients. We began using Steven since our initial plan was to reside in North County; but after a few months we switched gears and began looking in the city of San Diego (we ended up in La Mesa). To make matters more difficult, the vast majority of our house hunting was done from out of town using real estate web sites to find and qualify homes. Some weeks we had Steven running all over the place! And even though I’m sure we tested his patience at times, he never batted an eye. As ones who were new to the market, Steven was also a valuable resource on all sorts of real estate and neighborhood information. Steven comes highly recommended from us!

Steven goes above and beyond for you. We had a great experience with him, we always wanted to move out of Orange County and buy a place in San Diego, but being so new to the area it was hard to find good neighborhoods with good schools, price etc… Until we met Steven in one of our house searches. He quickly did a search of all the houses in the area with all of our must haves and price that we can afford!… His quick, honest and loyal person. I will definitely recommend him, he found us our home and fought very hard !
I love my neighborhood and neighbors are great!, love my home 🙂

Hechesnut Client, Buyer

Steven worked with us throughout the process to keep everything on track. Steven’s expertise made it possible for us to expedite the purchase process. His guidance through the offer and counter-offer were key to our getting the property we wanted. Steven returned our calls in short order, and made it possible to get the signed documents back to the seller in time to close the deal.
Steven remained in contact after our offer was accepted and worked with us through the escrow process. His knowledge of the process and technical know-how proved to be extremely valuable to us as we completed the purchase. Steven’s understanding of the local real estate market and consistent follow-through made us feel confident that we were on track and that nothing had been overlooked.
We would highly recommend Steven to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Southern California.

Steven helped my husband and I choose a new home. We came from the East coast so we didn’t have much knowledge about the local real estate market. Steven is flexible with his schedule, hard working and knowledgeable. He did a good job of showing us all of our options. We are very happy with our home.
