Steven was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. If I didn't know something he was quick with an answer and if he didn't know something, he was quick to research and respond. A true professional!

I was a first time home buyer, so I needed a lot of help. Steve was there for me every step of the way, from arranging showings to negotiating on my purchase. You can tell that he is extremely knowledgeable and loves what he does. I highly recommend him if you are purchasing or selling a home.

Steve keeps you informed every step of the way. He responds to your concerns immediately. He represented me at the closing since I was closing out of state. Totally trusted him. Definitely recommend him!

I had an excellent experience working with Steve Merlo. After listening to my timeline requirements, he suggested a price range that seemed reasonable. I've worked with other realtors over the years who dazzled me with a high list price, only to persuade me weeks or a month later that "the market wasn't supporting that price," and urged me to lower the price. Steve offered me great advice for staging the house and I felt that he was with me every step of the way. Despite his busy schedule, he always made me feel like I was his first priority. Whether selling or buying, I would highly recommend Steve for your real estate needs.

Recalling the process of selling my house 18 years ago made me fearful of listing my house for sale. Steve was professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. He has a strong online presence; I was amazed to see my listing appear as an advertisement on one of my phone apps! Steve was with me every step of the way. In every regard, he went above and beyond his responsibilities as a sales agent. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Steve made the process of buying a home easy and stress-free. He carefully listened to my list of wants and only showed me properties that met my criteria. He was readily available and respectfully offered insight based on his vast knowledge and experience of the market. Finding a good realtor can be difficult and I am grateful for his tirelessness and professionalism.

I can't speak enough of our experience with Steven Merlo. First of all, excellent human being. As a first time home buyers, my family was little scared of the process of buying a home. After talking to Steven for the first time, I knew he was the right person to deal with. Throughout the process and all the transactions, he was highly professional and understood what we wanted. He was very responsive and easily reachable during and after working hours via email, phone and texting. Overall, we are pleased with our experience as a first time home buyer.

Steven Merlo represented my Wife and I as buyers during our transition from Queens, NYC to Union County, NJ from 2015-2017. Steve routinely arrived 15-minutes early to our weekend meetings and appeared to have researched the property before our meeting. Then, during the tour of the property he gave us his undivided attention and answered all our questions. We never felt rushed and had some worthwhile conversations while house hunting with Steve. When it was time to buy, Steve went at great lengths to make our offer stand out from the competition and devoted uncountable hours of his time to our happiness. One of the best benefits allowing Steve to represent us was he leverages technology with his services, making signing contracts and communicating simple. Through the ups and downs of house hunting Steve always dressed his best and kept us optimistic and positive regarding houses. I would recommend Steve's services for anyone interested in buying or selling a home because of these incredible attributes.
