We met him and were immediately impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of local real estate values and available properties. He stuck with us over several months of trying to find the right home and making offers that didn't work out. Ultimately he got a listing on a town home that perfectly fit our needs and he helped us negotiate a contract and provided financing and insurance recommendations who were very knowledgeable about the purchase process in the beach environment. The transaction went very smoothly from start to closing. We couldn't have asked for a better broker to assist us through the purchase process. He went far beyond the normal call of duty and steered us to good local restaurants, house cleaning people, and other services one would need when moving to a new community. He did everything except help unpack our boxes! He's a fine gentleman who we would recommend to anyone.
When my brother died, the house in Fl. became my responsibility. MY first inclination was to rent the property for income. After reviewing with Steve what properties were selling for and getting a review of the condition of this property, I moved into the sales mode. We had good early prospects but for one reason or another they fell away. We ended up with a cash deal which was more than fair!!! Steve Busse is from my point of view, and many of the people I meet in that area, The very best Realtor up and down the Beach!!!!!
His knowledge of the market, insurance issues and current home values make him a top broker. I would highly recommend Steve if you are buying or selling a home in today's market! His entire team treats you like you are their only client. They are very accessible and always get back to you promptly. His marketing approach is state of the art too!
He sold our multi-million dollar waterfront home in Redington Beach in less time than expected. Steve is a naturally enthusiastic person who is motivated and very thorough. He explains all documents, decisions and recommendations in detail. He is patient and present-when you sign with Steve you deal with Steve. You NEVER have to deal with the uncertainty of him sending over one of his half a dozen"team members," who you've never met, to show you around. Steve Busse has a great grasp of the Tampa Bay market and an even better understanding of both the residential and commercial markets on the beach--properties at all price points. We would highly recommend Steve.
You got to work with him to find good deal.
I cannot say enough good things about the service we received from Steve Busse. He is the most knowledgeable realtor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. You will not find another realtor who will go the extra mile to make a deal work, he was professional and courteous and answered any and all concerns we had. If I had 10 more houses I would use Steve to sell every one of them. James Eskald
I listed my home with Steve and within one month it was under offer and sold.Selling a home can be stressful at the best of times,so this was a good job done by Steve.Simply an all round nice guy.
He was professional and helpful throughout the process. Kept me informed and negotiated with my best interests in mind. I had back to back closings with no problems and went quite smooth. His assistant, Jill, was always available and helpful during this time. Great team that I would utilize again in all my real estate deals. I can highly recommend Steve Busse.
I have personally used him as my realtor to buy and sell 4 different properties along the beaches of North Redington and in Dunedin over the last 15 years. He has always given me sound guidance when it came to listing and selling my homes. I have always been satisified with our transactions and have successfully recommeded him to friends. I would not dream of using another realtor!
We worked with a few other realtors who can't ever come close to Steve & Jill's local knowledge, responsiveness, expertise in the process. They hung with us for 5 years as we did not know if we wanted a home, condo, townhome, on the water, on an inlet, etc. They showed us so many possibilities but we love what we purchased and never who have thought that until they showed it to us. Loved working with them and having purchased 7 properties thus far, with this being the most expensive, Steve & Jill are the best. I would never go anywhere else but to them."
He located a home for us to buy. We were able to do both closing sat the same time. Steve made the process easy. He is a great mediator and helps to make the many small items that can delay a sale go away.
He helped us process both the sale and purchase all in one transaction which was a very complicated getting everything necessary together for both transactions
Petersburg FL area. He showed me only properties that fit my criteria and his knowledge of the area kept me from going in a wrong direction. His negotiation skills were instrumental in getting the deal closed with all parties being satisfied. I would recommend him to anyone
I used Zillow to seek a real estate agent and came across Steve Busse. Wow, am I glad I did. Not only was he responsive, but he is very knowledgeable when it comes to all the local information concerning flood regulations, wind mitigation, and other attributes about properties that drive higher insurance costs or impact value which I knew nothing about. Thanks to Steve I quickly became an informed buyer. Steve is also very well networked. I wanted a pool put on the property that I chose and he did all the leg work. He had a pool contractor come out and check to make sure the pool was a possibility. Within a two weeks I had 3D models of a pool design and a letter from the local utility company giving their approval. All that and I had not even closed on the property. Steve was able to get us the price we wanted to pay. If you want to sell or buy a home, do not do it without Steve.
As a result we had a quick sale very close to our original asking price. His efforts were impressive and provided very satisfactory results. His assistant, Jill, was likewise very helpful. We are VERY pleased with our experience with these real estate professionals.
