"Steven has helped my family and I several times, with professionalism, great advice, patience, understanding, and a great personality! Contact him for real estate matters, you will be pleased!"
We were referred to Steven Wong when a developer proposed buying our
property. Never having worked with a developer, we knew we lacked the
expertise to navigate well for ourselves. We turned to a builder friend
for advice and he highly recommended Steven as someone who had a long
history of working with developers and could answer our many questions
as well as questions we didn't know to ask. Steven listened carefully to
our questions and concerns and thoughtfully directed us through each
phase of the process. He was quick to respond and readily available when
we had questions. He was careful to consider our needs as he defended
our position well with the developer and negotiated aspects unfamiliar
to us. We closed with an excellent outcome and believe that Steven
exceeded our expectations.
We feel fortunate to be able to consult with someone with Steven's level of experience evaluating many types of properties for investment value as well as physical characteristics. He is approachable and takes his work seriously. We have come to gratefully trust his judgement.
I can't thank Steve and Laura enough for both their professional work and their absolute determination to make all of our requests come true. We have bought and sold several homes over our 40 years of marriage. This team is by far the most professional and forward thinking real estate team we have worked with. Thank you for all your hard work in our less than 30 close request!
Steven Wong and Laura Johansen were not only the consummate professionals for and during my transaction, but truly went above and beyond in orchestrating and organizing other activities that needed to be handled to complete the terms of the sale. As I was unable to be there for some of these meetings, they're ability and willingness to handle these situations made all of the difference in the world. I cannot thank them enough for their efforts!!
"I had a very short time frame to find and close on a house. That, combined with a "difficult" seller, put a lot of stress on me but Steven and Laura handled both issues with ease and made everything seamless. I highly recommend them, not just for their abilities as real estate agents but also their commitment to costumer service. I felt like they were there for me night or day, during and after the sale."
Steven Wong has helped my family and me several times, so it was a no brainer to ask for his assistance again, this time to downsize. Again, it was a great experience working with Steven, from sharing his knowledge of the market, to prompt action when needed, to sound and honest advice. He works now with Laura Johansen, an agent with great personality, very prompt, knowledgeable, eager to help and find the best fit for us. There were many times when Laura communicated with us, clarifying or answering questions late at night. She is diligent, taking prompt action. Steven and Laura are an efficient team. We recommend them warmly. Simona and Cris Carmona
I highly recommend Steven & Laura. All my expectations were met and then some. Their combined knowledge and experience helped me to establish a level of trust I thought impossible.
Working with Steven and Laura could not have gone better. They gave us
solid advice on how to prep our house for sale and pricing. I was
initially doubtful on the price they wanted to list. I thought it was
too high and we’d sit on the market forever. But we did all the small
projects around our house they recommended, followed their advice and
less than 24 hours after listing we had two offers, one over the asking
price. Between the two of them, they are a wealth of knowledge. They
helped us navigate all the negotiations and made sure we understood all
the addendums and contracts we were signing.
After we found the house we wanted to buy, they proved again just how great they are at what they do. They were extremely thorough during the home inspection and walk through. Asking questions I would not have thought to ask. They were also extremely helpful with our financing, making sure we knew everything we were getting into.
We love our new home and cannot imagine selling anytime soon. But if we do, we’ll use Steven and Laura again.
I highly recommend Steven Wong and Laura Johansen for any real estate needs within the Portland Metroplex area. They both went above and beyond while preparing to list my home for sale, while it was for sale and during the closing process. I felt confident to have them in control as I live out of state. They coordinated repairs, maintenance with the previous management company and all of the items on the inspection addendum. I had the privilege to have them list my home and complete the transaction with zero issues. Highly recommend!
We gave Steven the worst possible scenario: retired folks on a ridiculously tiny budget but tough demands. And eventually settled on a HUD-owned place using a VA loan: TWO impossible government agencies to deal with. Steven worked his tail off for us for several months while we looked-at and rejected house-after-house, looking for and pointing out potential issues rather than just sweet-selling us to close a deal quickly. And when we finally chose the government-nightmare deal, he fought mightily on our behalf to make it all come together. Success! We are very happy with our new home, and very very VERY thankful we had Steven Wong on our side. Without his help, we'd either still be looking, or stuck with some joint that's not quite right.... THANK YOU STEVEN!!!
I was an out of town investor looking to purchase RE in the Portland
area. I was referred to Steven by his previous client. I had limited
knowledge of the area and first time purchasing RE for investment
purpose. On first day of meeting Steven and Laura already lined up 8
properties for showing and educated me on the Portland RE market from
the investor point of view. We saw over 50 properties during my
venture, Laura worked late into the night lining up properties for me to
see and Steven while vacationing with his family consistently follow-up
with me. They were friendly, professional, attentive, responsive, hard
working, efficient, high caliber and most important understood my
expectation and need.
I found a house within couple weeks and they were great throughout the process of negotiating, inspection and closing of the sale. They also have wonderful network partners of lenders, inspectors to make the rest of the process smooth and painless. I was very fortunate to have found such a great team. I highly recommend Steven and Laura for your RE needs.
Steven Wong & Laura Johansen make an awesome team. Selling my
home of 30 years & finding a new home was a daunting prospect .
Steven came highly recommended by a friend I trust and respect who had
dealt with him on a couple of real estate transactions and so I had a
sense of how good a job he might be. Since he & Laura work as a
team I felt I got a double benefit of 2 dedicated people who worked
tirelessly on my behalf.
Selling my older family home in a week and buying a smaller home 3 days later was good luck- it was in ironing out the details keeping things together when buyers had cash flow concerns & supporting me through all the nitty gritty details was where they really showed their love & dedication of their job and unconditional support of their clients - in this sale they represented both the buyer & seller and did so with fairness & integrity. They have so much expertise and professionalism and are very warm and friendly.
Selling and buying a home is quite an undertaking and doing it as a soon to be retired senior citizen was another story- since I hope that I only have to do this this one time I am so grateful that I chose Steven & Laura to represent me they were totally awesome in handling every aspect of the process and explaining things clearly. Steven is a full service Realtor in every sense of the word including being a godsend on moving day when friends who were committed to help weren't able to follow through. I highly recommend them - choosing a good Realtor is key to any real estate transaction and choosing this team is a decision you will not regret - they are quite simply the best.
I can't recommend or thank Steven and Laura enough for selling our home.
Once your property is sold and you are able to move on with your life,
it would be easy to say your experience was 'great' just based on the
outcome not the full experiance you went through. Anyone who has sold a
home knows that the experience is more like a rollercoaster rather than a
straight forward transaction. Through the ups and downs on our journey
of property selling not once did we ever question our realtors
knowledge, experience, motivation or most of all, trust. When you choose a
realtor, you do to an extent put your life in an others hands. We
could not have been in better hands. We did not pull Steven and Laura
out of the yellow pages. We were given the details of Steven and Laura
by a very experienced custom home contractor who we like very much. We
like that contractor even more now. We never could have found anyone
better without that recommendation. I whole heartedly recommend the
services of Steven and Laura and look back on our experience with only
Laura and Steven Wong both went above and beyond for us in regards to purchasing our new home and selling the old one. They made us feel better in a stressful situation and always replied quickly to our concerns and gave us great advice. We can not recommend them highly enough!
I would like everyone to know about the wonderful experience that I have had working with Steven Wong and Laura Johansen. They both came highly recommended and I surely understand why.
As soon as I met both Steven and Laura, I felt completely comfortable and confident that things would go well. They were always available at any time, always very professional, and so personable (which was very important to me. It wasn't about a sale for them as much as it was about which home would be best for me. Thank you both for making this event such a happy and stress-free occasion.
