He helped guide us through our home buying process. When we asked to look at properties he always responded timely and usually threw in one we had not considered. When we told him we wanted to avoid certain areas and then asked to see homes in that area he didn't bat an eye. When I apologized for not being clearer on what we were looking for he told me not to worry about it, it's part of the job. When I suggested that I might have to settle for less than I wanted he said I just needed to be patient and I would find the house that was right for me. I would definitely recommend Steven to prospective buyers
My wife and myself were very discouraged about the whole home buying process to the point we were going to give up. I finally got fed up and saw a listing and thought to myself I will do everything myself, well I called the listing agent and they returned my phone call with Steven Horner. At this point mind you I was already frustrated with the process and was up front with Steven and asked him outright if he would take the time and show us houses and he agreed. Not only did he show us houses pretty much to our schedule but the one and only time he couldn't make it he had one of his partners show us a listing in case it was a house we really wanted to make a offer on. Steven did his job to the T, and educated us (he is very knowledgeable in realty). It was clear that he was going to take the time, and actually wanted to make a sale at the same time. We were not just another customer to him. He NEVER once made us to feel we were beneath him like a lot of realtors can come off. He even followed up with us once we did find the house we loved. We know we didn't make a mistake on our home purchase because he allowed us to take the time to look. Steven helped us set up everything from the home inspection to even getting documents all settled from the bank, he pretty much almost did the banking for my bank Navy Federal who dragged their feet, but Steven was very persistent in all aspects of getting us closed and in our first home. First time home buyers, if your really serious about purchasing. Steven and his team the Aridas Group are the best ones to start with. When we decide to upgrade and/or move into another home my wife and I can safely say we will be looking to Steven and the Aridas Team.
Their persistence and faithfulness have won our deepest gratitude in completing this deal. After working for 5 1/2 years with Bank America (must we say more), a short sale for our property was finally agreed upon. Larry and Carmen Aridas of Remax Properties S W 11, Orlando, Fl. were our realtors. We had a daughter in Tulsa at the time and she called your radio show and was given their name. You said that "Larry" was a realtor on "steroids". He definitely was. We lost our home of 40 years due to a sad loss of business. Add to this that we are seniors and it was extremely traumatic. Larry was very sensitive to our roller coaster emotions and that we had so many hoops to jump through and the process was painfully slow. During this time we were very careful with our money and we were able to save enough to pay CASH for a small home and we are so happy to be completely debt free. We want to thank your organization for your help in putting this puzzle together and we want to recognize the efforts of Larry and Carmen Aridas. Thank you and God bless you. Sunny and Pat
