I purchased a home in Florida with the excellent assistance from Steve Appel. As an out of towner, I had very limited knowledge of the area. Steve was outstanding! He listened to what I was looking for and provided listings for us to review that met our requirements.

He set up appointments so we could tour the properties we selected, and we found something that fit both our budget and the neighborhood we were looking for.

He made the process of purchasing a home seamless and made sure we were informed all the way through to closing and after.

Steve has his client’s best interest at heart. He is an outstanding realtor.

I am pleased to say that my husband and I are repeat clients of Steve’s! Two years ago Steve assisted us in finding our first home in Zephyrhills, Florida, and when we found ourselves looking again, we knew from experience that Steve was the only local realtor we would trust with our second purchase. Steve is not only a professional in the business, but he is personable and treats his clients like he would treat a family member. He is patient, respectful and mindful that every real estate situation is unique and personal to each of his clients. We would recommend Steve Appel whether you are a first-time buyer or relocating to Florida.

Steve Appel was instrumental in assisting us in selling our home. From prep, to listing, to closing, and also in a fast moving market, every step was smooth. Steve also assisted us in purchasing our new home, which also went smooth. We are extremely happy and would recommend Steve to anyone.

You can’t go wrong with Steve Appel as your realtor! He was patient and took time to explain things to me. I am a first time home buyer so I had lots of questions. Steve is very responsive to phone calls & texts & will work with your schedule. He also has a wealth of knowledge about real estate and the areas he specializes in. I got to see every listing I wanted to see. I ended up choosing new construction in Wesley Chapel and I’m so glad I did. I love my house! 🏡 Thanks so much Steve for your help!! 😊

The consummate Professional. Steve does not sell you he advises and informs your decision making. When you combine his Real Estate knowledge with his Financial background you have a powerful advocate. He is proactive and responsive. I felt comfortable through the entire process, and would highly recommend his services.

We are out of state and Steve took on the challenge of selling our home with enthusiasm. His advice, dedication, attention to the details and timing were on point. He kept us up to date on all activities, showings and comments. Steve also went the extra mile in helping us with a roof replacement and exterior paint job! The prompt personal attention was greatly appreciated and we could not have expected anything more. We highly recommend him.

Steve was great to work with. He was always available when we had questions or wanted to go see a home, even with very little advanced notice. He was very patient with us and we really appreciated his honesty when looking at prospective homes. Steve listened to what it was we were looking for in a home, and did a really great job at finding homes that met our most important criteria. Buying a home in today’s market proved to be a little frustrating and took some time, but we were very grateful that we had Steve as our realtor, and with his dedication and hard work, we found a new home in less time than we thought it might take. We will not hesitate to recommend Steve to others!

My wife and I have worked with Steve since 2012, and he has proven to be an exceptional realtor. Steve has been incredibly meticulous in every step of assisting us with buying and selling. He takes his time to ask all the right questions, communicate every part of the transaction in a timely fashion, and he is very down-to-earth, transparent, trustworthy, and personable to make even the most stressful parts of buying/selling a home as seamless as possible. For example, when we were prepping our home for sale, Steve came over to do a walkthrough and even took the time to pull out a few small weeds in our garden bed, driveway, and walkway, just as my own dad would. In my own most stressful moments, Steve always found ways to connect with me and chat about our mutual love for football, just to keep me in good spirits. Those little things go a long way and they reflect exceptional character in a hardworking agent. I consider Steve a close friend now, not just a business acquaintance. We recently sold our home through Steve, and now he is guiding us through the process of our new home-build. If you’re looking for a stress-free process of buying or selling a home, look no where else but to Steve Appel!

We recently closed on our new construction home. Steve was very attentive to every detail, asking all the right questions and working to ensure the builder worked to their highest standard. We purchased our first home 10 years ago with Steve, sold that home last year, and closed on our second home with him. We have other realtor friends, but trust is something that is hard to establish oftentimes. When you find a great realtor, stick to them. He’s our go-to man for all things real estate related. He knows the Tampa Bay area very well and will tailor his services specifically to your needs. Thanks again for everything Steve! Looking forward to watching tons of football with you at our new home!
