Customer Service Manager
We feel very fortunate to have had Steve assist us in the purchase of our first home. We really had no idea what we were getting into and Steve walked us through every step of the process, breaking it down so that we could understand:
1) what we needed to look for when house hunting
and once we were able to find a home we loved,
2) the complicated process of buying it quickly and efficiently
We happily recommend Steve for his outstanding expertise, diligence, kindness, and down to earth attitude. Not to mention, his availability! He was there for us every step of the way no matter what day of the week or time of day.

My wife and I loved using Steve to buy our first home! We had always rented and finally made the leap to buy. Steve was highly recommended to us by a family member who had used him a few times in the past. After my first conversation with Steve, I knew right away that he was a very sharp guy. He was always very communicative (even when on vacation), honest, punctual, and approachable. He made things so much more comfortable and assuring for us, at a time when we were super stressed out with such a large purchase. His wealth of knowledge and calm demeanor helped us find the perfect first home for our young family. Steve is truly a professional and I too highly recommend using him. Thanks again Steve!

Operations Manager
Steve was recommended to us by a friend of ours and we are very glad we took her recommendation. Steve was very helpful and knowledgeable from beginning to end. He listened to what our ideal home was and did a great job in recommending good areas to find what we were looking for. Any time we wanted to go see a home for sale he was always able to get us in to see it within 24-48 hours and sometimes even the same day. He would always return our many texts and phone calls whenever we had a question. Steve was never pushy and we truly felt that he wanted us to take our time and find the right house in the right neighborhood. He was very good at pointing out things on a home that would’ve needed repairing or fixing right away that we may have not otherwise noticed. In the end we found the perfect home for us and would recommend Steve Medendorp to anyone who is looking for a good honest realtor.

Retired
We moved to FL 10 years ago and spent the initial 4 years renting while we searched for our retirement home. After scouring multiple locations via various brokers, we finally found Steve. Long story short, Steve seemed to "get it". The search was totally on-target and the entire process & experience was virtually flawless. We ended up with our retirement home and have been enjoying it for the past 6 years. If we ever decide to pursue another move, be assured our first phone call will be to Steve.

My wife and I were very unaccustomed to the housing market in Florida and Steven was a consummate professional in helping us navigate through the landscape. He patiently worked with us for nearly 9 months in an effort to find a home we loved as n the multiple offers and competitive scenarios we found ourselves in. I couldn't think of anyone in this market I would recommend with greater confidence.

Steven Medendorp assisted me when I decided to begin renting my property. Being a first time landlord, I was a bit afraid of the process but Steve walked me through the paperwork and gave me a good run down of the Landlord/Tenant laws in Florida. There was no question or issue too small for Steve and I successfully rented my place for several years. He is a genuine professional who has the ideal background to help get you through your real estate issues.

Steve was an incredible asset when it came to negotiating the sale and purchase of my home during a difficult market. His legal background made him the best guy to navigate my tricky business lease and thus keep me free of any unforeseen issues down the road with my landlord. Hiring Steve not only gets you attentive and customized service, but his legal knowledge and experience are what set him apart. It's what real estate troubles I have avoided with Steve that have made him so valuable to me.

Steve helped us sell our house in Tampa and he did an amazing job with the listing and pictures and was not too pushy and was so flexible with our needs and wants making the process very smooth. We had several offers the first day over asking price and he gave us advice on the best choice. He was also very good at communicating with us through the entire process which made it very successful. He told us the things to look out for and broke down the fine print to help us better understand and I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

VP/Business Development
I moved from Michigan to Florida almost 3 years ago. Steve was very deligent in his search for what I was looking for and understood what I was really looking for. His communication was great as we continued to look for my dream house. It was not an easy task but Steve ended up finding me a hidden gem in a community that met all my needs and more. I love the house and neighborhood that I am in and I wouldn’t have been able to find something like this on my own. Steve and I have remained in touch over the past 3 years and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a home. He truly put in the time and effort to point me in the right direction of what I had really invisioned for living in Florida.

Steve has helped us several times with both the selling of our home and the purchase of another. We referred him to our daughter when she purchased her home and have just recommended him to out of state friends looking to move to St Pete. Steve is very professional, knows his inventory and is very detail oriented. We will definitely continue recommending him to friends.

Steve helped me both sell my house and buy a new one in the Westchase area. I felt I received top price for the sale and a competitive price on the purchase. Steve was easy to work with and I felt he represented my families best interest in both transactions. I would definitely use or recommend Steve for any future real estate needs.

Steve is a consummate professional - with a full range of knowledge across the entire spectrum of the Real Estate Transaction. He's an expert in Real Estate and Title and has a solid background in Mortgage Financing as well. Finally, Steve is an excellent communicator, and uses these skills to ensure a smooth transaction whether he is representing the seller or the buyer!

Steve helped us buy two homes, one in Sarasota and later one in Tampa. We like the way he works...he learns what type of home we are looking for, and the kind of neighborhood we want to live in, and then sends us homes that fill that criteria. The process is efficient and we don't waste time looking at places we would not be interested in. Because he is a practicing attorney he also helps with understanding the closing process and costs. If we decide to move again, or to buy investment property, we will use him again. And from our experience with his level of service, I would highly recommend him. If nothing else, give him a call and talk to him.

Steve is a great real estate broker. He will do everything he can to find the home of your dreams. He will research the zoning, school zone and permitting for the property. While touring homes he will help with pointing out potential problems and will advise you. I recommended Steve to many people and will continue to do so.

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Steve Medendorp as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.
We honestly do not know what we would have done without Steve’s guidance, experience and support during the process of buying our home. We were from out of state, and had a limited opportunity to find and make an offer on a home. To complicate matters, Steve was a last minute agent switch. I often refer to this moment as divine intervention. I was referred to him through a family co-worker. We were searching halfway across the country and we needed an expert. We identified a home in Sarasota and Steve being in Tampa, drove down and assessed the home same day and told us this home was well worth its asking price and probably more. After diligently following his advice we won the property solely based on his expertise, his intimate market knowledge and strategy he devised for us. This property was in high demand and was being bid on not just locally, not just nationally but had international interest due to it's proximity to the beaches on Siesta Key and it's wonderful downtown. It was an amazing moment when you find out you just won and beat out people from around the world.

It certainly helps that he's a real estate lawyer and is depth and breathe of real estate matters is beyond approach. He never made me feel out of sorts and was always comfortable knowing he was doing a great job for me and my family. We found Steve to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality.

Steve gets my highest recommendation. He is a true professional in every sense and I wouldn't hesitate one second recommending him to my closest friends, family and colleagues!

Working with Steve was an absolute pleasure! He spent months scouring listings, taking into account all of my “must haves”. He was very responsive to my questions. He found my house the first day it was listed on the MLS. He helped me choose an offer price and took most of the post-offer stress off my plate by walking me through the closing process step by step.
