Steve is an outstanding real estate partner. He helped us make good decisions for the outcome we wanted, took care of our property while we were away and over all, he is one of the best real estate agents we have ever worked with. We highly recommend working with Steve.

Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process! He was highly recommended by a wonderful friend of mine and we were more than pleased. He was always upbeat and honest from start to finish. He did his research on homes we were interested in viewing and found crucial details that we would say yes or no to take the time to view. He showed us homes various times of the day and during the week since we had to act quickly in the current market if we liked a home. We highly recommend Steve and know you will not be disappointed if you choose him as your realtor. Dave and I appreciate you Steve! We look forward to moving into our new home. Especially, our dog Barney! He will have a yard!

Steve helped my wife and I through the entire home buying process. We hit some bumps with our lender, with some sellers, and with finding a property that was workable for our growing family. Steve handled all those issues calmly and professionally, keeping us informed at all stages of the process. He was fantastic to work with, and I would highly recommend him.

My husband John Busch and I decided to put our house on the market. Without properly vetting our Realtor, our house ended up being on the market for 6 months without any contracts (or even a for sale sign.) A friend suggested we contact Steve, who met us immediately at the house, and got straight to work. Within two weeks we had a contract on the house and the house was sold. His pictures of the house were amazing, his flyers pervasive and he had a sign out immediately (which is not always easy in deed restricted communities.) He was extremely knowledgeable about pricing and marketing as well as the communities and the models within. He maintained professional and prompt communication throughout the entire process and the sale went extremely smoothly. I highly recommend him and would absolutely use him in the future.

Steve was our realtor on our recent home purchase. Steve is thoroughy knowledgeable in the New Tampa/Wesley Chapel real estate market and local trends. We were impressed that he knew about every community and when viewing homes he pointed out every little detail. He was always available to us while we were searching for a home. He took his time and answered any questions we had. Steve was always available by phone, text and email. Not pushy and very friendly.

Steve was a great help to us 12 yrs ago when we chose to move to Florida from N.Y he found us the perfect house. Once again Steve helped us when we chose to move back to N.Y by finding us a buyer for the house he found for us. He is professional and is always looking out for your best interest. Thanks Steve, if we chose to be crazy and come back to Florida or know anyone intrested in move there we will definitely be in touch!

I wanted to take a moment to tell you all why I highly recommend Steve Appel as a realtor. My husband and I met Steve over 3 years ago when we were searching for a house to call our home. We were renting at the time and I was about 4 months pregnant with our first child, our daughter. We immediately liked Steve for his great personality and his willingness to work around our schedules. He made himself more available than any other realtor we communicated with. Steve listened to our needs. We were rather picky, so we looked at several homes and actually made offers on two but were outbid. We were discouraged but thanks to Steve’s consulting, advice, and overall empathy (remember, I was pregnant), we remained optimistic and finally found the right house. It was not an easy process but Steve made it so smooth and helped us to remain positive. He quickly became more than just our realtor, he became our friend. After we closed, Steve came by to check-in on us and essentially welcome us to the neighborhood, since we bought close to where he lives. We’ve continued to stay informed about the housing market, since we are a part of Steve’s monthly newsletter. He constantly brings value and well-informed insight to his clients. If you get the opportunity to work with Steve Appel, please consider yourself to be in the best hands. He’s a great realtor and an even better FRIEND!

"As a first-time homebuyer, there were a ton of things I never would've thought about during the entire process of finding a house to closing. Steve was incredibly helpful in proactively bringing things to my attention, answering questions, and providing guidance from day one, without ever being pushy. I can't recommend Steve enough!"

Mr. Appel is not only a very competent realtor, but also did a marvelous job pinpointing the perfect rental property for us. Beyond his professionalism, Steve continuously followed up with our progress during the rental application and ensured that everything goes by plan. He is very easy to talk to and Steve truly cared about our satisfaction.

I am writing to recommend Steve Appel’s work as a realtor in the general Tampa area. Earlier in 2015 I was referred to Steve as a local realtor in the Tampa area while I was doing my search for a home. I had a number of constraints such as, not being from the area, having limited knowledge of the area and the various developments. Steve was beyond excellent in his knowledge of Tampa and its environs, patience and help in me getting to better understand both the lending process and the various developers. He never once rush us through any point of the process and was always on top of every aspect of the process. My wife and I would without reservation recommend Steve to anyone out there seeking to buy in Florida and is seeking a knowledgeable and passionate Realtor.

Steve worked with my wife and me to locate a home when we first moved to Florida in 2008.
