5 stars doesn't cover how good Stephen Merkle is. I only had a chance to work with him for a short while as I decided not to purchase a new home however for the time I did spend with him he was amazing! I couldn't get over how knowledgeable he was about everything dealing with the realtor business. He gave me such great tips I never would have thought of. He would never make you feel like you were wasting his time even if you simply just walked in a house for 5 minutes. He was super sweet and clearly very passionate about his work. I truly felt as though he had my best interests at heart and genuinely wanted to help me buy my perfect house, no matter how long or tiresome that road may be. He was my sister and brother-in-law's realtor and will be one of our good friends' as well. That's just how great he is! I would highly recommend Stephen Merkle if you are looking to buy any new dwelling.
Steve is incredibly knowledgeable and a consummate professional. We’ve moved several times and one of the qualities we’ve found in great realtors is communication. Good or bad, Steve always was in touch and communicative. He’s a pleasure to work with, a pro who knows his craft and the realtors in the area. He’s also personable and easy to get along with. Highly recommend!
I met Steve coincidently while looking at another house to purchase in which he was their realtor. I realized that house wasn’t for me, but after taking with him, I decided to have him represent me going forward in my house search. Steve is professional in manner, very knowledgeable, has a ton of experience, and was able to find a house perfect for my needs and wants. What typically would be a stressful situation considering my circumstances, turned out to be a very smooth process. He showed empathy and sincere honesty. I feel blessed beyond belief and would highly recommend him to anyone
I live in CA, but was named by my mother, who lived in Ohio, as executor of her estate. My cousin recommended Stephen, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. There were several remediations that had to be done before we could close on the sale. Living in another state I was fearful that things would go off the rails, but Stephen kept everything moving smoothly along. He was very professional, respectful, and pleasant to work with, and he walked with us every step of the way. We had multiple offers within 4 days of listing the home, and sold it for our full asking price. And lest you think that was accomplished by listing low, you would be wrong. I would highly recommend using Stephen Merkle.
Steve's experience and knowledge was evident at the first house he viewed with us. He was there for us every step of the way, answering our questions and checking to verify that everything was going smoothly. I would definitely recommend Steve and call on him again with any real estate needs.
My husband and I worked with Steve for both buying and selling. He guided us through the buying process with a vast knowledge of the Wadsworth area, prompt communication, and honest information. We listed our house for sale in October, and within 12 days we had multiple offers, including a full price offer. We are very pleased with Steve’s assistance throughout the process and highly recommend his services!
Steve Merkle was always available, professional and quick to answer any questions. As first time home buyers, he made our experience pleasant. He always went the extra mile, and brought up thoughts and issues that, as first time buyers, we might never have thought of on our own. We highly recommend him, and will definitely take advantage of his vast knowledge for any future real estate issues.
Steve Merkle is an outstanding realtor, and I would recommend him to anyone. My home sat on the market for over nine months with a different real estate company. I did not receive any offers and my home was not given the attention it needed to make a quick sale. When I switched to Steve, he suggested a few minor enhancements to improve the appearance of the interior and strategically worded the listing of my home to make it more attractive to buyers. With these suggestions combined with Steve's unique marketing strategy, I had an offer I was happy with in 29 days. I appreciated Steve's willingness to explain every aspect of the process and his immediate responses to my questions. Steve has the expertise to sell homes within any price range. If you list your home with Steve, you will not be disappointed!
