Steve, without a doubt you are the perfect Realtor anyone could ask for. After interviewing several realtors, you had impressed us the most and you certainly followed through upon selling my Mom's home in Walnut Creek. From the beginning (market analysis) through the middle (staging, property condition evaluation, & open house) to the end (review/prepare disclosures, ending documents) you were efficient & prepared, as well as patient & proactive. With the housing market as crazy as it is, you guided us through the process to a harmonious end for both buyer and seller. I can't say enough about your experience and responsiveness. It was a positive experience for us, and we would highly recommend your services. Thank you!
Steve, we don’t know how much we can thank you! The past 2 months feel like a very long, difficult journey filled with unknowns and unexpected incidents. Thank you for guiding us all the way through! Your high professional level, your knowledge, efficiency, and integrity are very impressive. We are pleased that we have chosen you as our agent and we will have no hesitation to recommend you to anyone who needs help buying and selling houses in the future! Our best regards.

Steve, you did everything we could possibly ask – helped us sell our house at a very good price and walked us through the process patiently and cogently, every step of the way. You’ll get our recommendation without hesitation.
From the first day we met with Steve I knew we had found the realtor that would be best for us. He immediately made us feel at ease and he was prepared with all of the information regarding all old, new and pending sales in our area and what we can expect regarding sales on our exact street in Concord.
My husband and I were thinking about waiting until the end of summer but Steve explained the benefits of selling early to late spring and he could not have been more correct. He didn't pressure us to move up our selling date by any means but what he said made so much sense. Moving up the date made us move a little faster getting our house ready but at every corner Steve had reliable, professional contractors and workers and their rates were more than fair in pricing.
Small bumps in the road happened at the end which happens at every sale when you are dealing with lenders and new home buyers but Steve was by our side for every time we needed someone to calm our doubts about the sale actually going through. The bottom line, our home sold for much more than my husband or I could have ever hoped for, faster than we even considered could happen and during all of this time Steve was awesome. He knows what he is doing and because of him we sold our home and left with enough equity to buy a home for us to retire in comfortably. I honestly can't say enough great things about him and without a doubt would recommend him to anyone that wants to sell their home as stress free as possible.

Hi Steve, Mark and I wanted to tell you what a pleasure it has been to work with you. I knew from the moment I contacted you, that I had made the right decision. I liked your no nonsense approach from beginning to end. Your thoroughness in the research you did was invaluable, as was how patiently you explained everything to us along the way!
Baseball analogies always work – I get it!! I loved that you were so calm, & never got rattled, which helped us stay calm & feel like we were being taken care of. You exude confidence, and for good reason! We would highly recommend you to all of our friends and family. Thanks again.

Steve, thank you so much for listing and selling our home and helping us find the right new home. It was such a pleasure to work with you, knowing you were handling things for us gave us peace of mind, and you made everything go smoothly. We especially appreciated all your long treks to look at homes and help us with our home purchase. Looking forward to having you over once we’re unpacked.

Steve was the perfect agent for us! He was extremely professional, organized, and always available to answer our questions and address any concerns. He sold our home in a methodical fashion, detailed all steps and followed a time line which resulted in the sale of our home for the best price.
When my husband and I moved to the Bay Area, we were in search of a great realtor who could represent us in this highly competitive market. I had originally reached out to a few other realtors, all who were not able to meet with us for a few days or even a week. When I came across Steve and Matt, they were quick to respond and were able to show us a property that same day. We spent almost four months searching for our home with them and they were extremely patient, knowledgable, and proactive about showing us properties and educating us about the process. We never felt pressured and at times, they would even would educate us on reasons why would we should reconsider certain properties. When we finally found "the house," Steve and Matt went out of their way to obtain answers from the seller about things we would have never thought about ourselves. We were so lucky to have such a professional and responsive team by our side to help us buy our first home in this market. I highly recommend Steve and Matt for your real estate needs!

Steve and Matt,
You did an amazing job selling my mother’s home in Concord! I was impressed from the start with the detailed market analysis you did on my mother’s home. You were always on top of things, kept me informed and returned my phone calls/emails immediately. You went above and beyond by repairing our greenhouse door when a big windstorm blew it off just before the first open house! And bottom line, you brought in multiple offers and sold the house above asking price. What more could I have asked for. You made this whole process such a pleasant experience for me. Thank you!
Steve & Matt went beyond any expectation that I would have in facilitating the sales process. They provided expert advice and guidance, had a team of professionals to repair and clean on hand and were constantly at the job site monitoring the process. Definitely a class from start to finish!!
Our experience with the Quanstrom Group as new home buyers and now happy owners was a great experience. They are patient, informative, and a partner that you feel is truly on your side to get the home that you desire. I would not hesitate to contact them again for any real estate needs we could have in the future...
Mike and Josephine
Liz and I just wanted to thank you again for providing us with such outstanding service! We were both surprised how smooth you both made the entire process flow into a quick sale – it couldn’t have worked out any better. We were also very impressed with how knowledgeable and prepared you both were, in addition to being very easy to work with.
We wish you both continued success.

I first met Matt while he was hosting an open house and my husband and I were starting to look around and see what our options were for buying our next home. Matt was friendly and relaxed, and I felt comfortable talking with him. I grabbed one of his business cards and called him to see if he could help us find some more homes to view. That was a great move! Matt & Steve made it their job to get to know us and tailored our home viewing wonderfully to our taste. A short while later we moved into a home we love and feel so fortunate to have found. My husband and I always felt Matt & Steve's main goal was to help us be happy, and we appreciate that!

What left an endearing mark on us were your talent, dedication, and professionalism of the marketing and selling of the house. We appreciate the diligence and effort you spent during all phases of the sale. Given that we initially had numerous differences with the buyers, compounded by the amount of the time we were shuttling between California and Florida, you always took the time, whether in person or by phone, to clearly and concisely keep us abreast of what was happening. You were flexible and accommodating to our difficult schedule and kept the focus on what was best for us – the top price, a timely close, and a smooth progression toward the close. We think it would be advantageous for other clients to tap into your considerable talent, dedication and professionalism.”
John & Roberta
“You returned our calls quickly, and explained everything in detail. You were always professional, courteous and kind. You shared what we could expect during the transaction, and we were never disappointed throughout the entire process. You also found a wonderful way to pull it all together, and make us as sellers happy as well as our buyers. We would highly recommend you to our friends and family, and in fact we have. We don’t think anyone else would even come close to giving such detailed, articulate service. Thank you!”
Richard & Julia
“Due to their hard work and thorough service, I feel we got the best possible price for our house. Not only did they competently maneuver the way through all the onerous tasks of selling a house, but also made my husband and I feel comfortable that there was no “stone unturned”. They made good suggestions and were forthcoming in their advice. They are conscientious, trustworthy and assiduous realtors. I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone who is lucky enough to be their client.”
“We felt your genuine desire to really understand what our needs were and even asked for our kid’s feedback. As we eventually came to decide that moving was a better option for us, you patiently walked us through the emotional highs and lows of the transaction from the numerous inspections and estimates on through to the various negotiations with the seller. We really felt you were on our side, advocating for us at every inch of the way.”
“They steered me through the process of getting my home of 25 plus years ready for sale. There were many moving parts such as painting, carpeting, paring down and a long checklist of things to be done leading up to the staging, broker tour and open houses. They were very supportive which meant so much to me as a single male empty nester. They bring to the table exceptional experience and competence. Often throughout the process I told them that they are 'The Gold Standard.'"
“They walked us through every aspect on both sides (buying and selling) and made the transition and paperwork seem easy. They were always looking out for our best interest and even talked us out of buying one particular house in the process; a very rare find in today’s world.”
Terry and Kristen
“We want to take the opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job you have done for us in the sale of our home. Your marketing plan was very effective and the attention to detail was unsurpassed. You understood the stress that selling a home brings and did a great job of managing the stressful situations.”
“When Marilyn and I decided to sell our home on Sobrante Ct in WC we interviewed three realtors in order to decide with whom to list our home. One of the best decisions we ever made was to select you and have you as a team to represent us in this transaction. I would strongly advise any WC resident who is contemplating selling their home to interview and then select you for this important event.”
