As a long-time resident of Bluffton and the South Carolina low-country, Steve Wallace knows the low country and its neighborhoods well. He is genuinely interested in getting to know his buyers and learning what they’re looking for in their next home. Understanding the buyer’s needs is the first step in finding the perfect home. Relocation is something Steve is familiar with as well. He has moved many times in his career, so he is familiar with the frustration and fear of the unknown that goes along with moving to a new unfamiliar area.
Negotiation skills are Steve’s strong suite and he really enjoys this part of the job, ensuring that his clients receive the best deal possible. He works hard to get the best price for his buyer clients. The seller’s agent will bargain hard for their client, and so will Steve for his. Being well informed about the local real estate market gives Steve Wallace an advantage over the competition. He has extensive knowledge of the Greater Bluffton real estate market, and he is always keeping abreast of trends and sales in the area.
When you first meet Steve, he’s going to want to know your communication preferences. Some clients want to receive emailed reports about every potential property for sale while others would rather receive information about those that only pertain to their specific list of preferences. Steve can accommodate either way. He wants this to be not just a streamlined and financially advantageous experience for you, but also a pleasant one.
Steve Wallace always suggests home inspections be done. Inspections are important for both resale homes and also brand new construction homes. He can explain the home inspector’s report to you line by line and obtain estimates from tradespeople to fortify a request for a lower sales price.
Steve Wallace knows the best and most reputable mortgage professionals in the SC low country areas and can refer you to his network of knowledgeable specialists in financing.

Details must never be overlooked in the high stakes world of real estate transactions. After all, for most buyers this is the largest investment of their lifetime.

Steve is present for every step of this process and every meeting along the way. He will keep you updated about scheduling, too.
Remember, having the seller accept your offer is just the beginning of the process. Steve Wallace can help ease your mind about any complexities along the way.
Here is a sampling of what he can do for you:
The terms “realtor” and “real estate agent” are often used interchangeably, but there is a difference that consumers should be aware of. When you become a REALTOR®, you swear an oath to follow the National Association of Realtors® (NAR)’s Code of Ethics. These 17 articles of the Code of Ethics are taken seriously by members and are strictly enforced by real estate boards.
The most important article that Realtors subscribe to is honesty. A REALTOR must be fair to all parties and must always put their client’s interests above their own. Steve Wallace is a proud and longstanding member of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR).
Here is a list of certifications and memberships Steve holds:

So many agents overlook this important first step in the process of buying a home. If an agent doesn’t take the time to sit down with clients and learn what they truly need and want in a home, then the search for a home can be long and tiresome. It doesn’t have to be if the agent knows you and what you want ahead of time. Being proactive and communicative is key in being an outstanding buyer’s agent, and Steve takes pride in doing so.
Steve has a long history of being good to his clients and providing honest and reputable services to buyers throughout the Greater Bluffton area. Buyers feel at ease with sharing what they truly want in a home, so honesty goes both ways and is beneficial to the process.

Steve has held a position on a local Bluffton neighborhood board and has served as a property owners association board president. He can share these experiences with you and answer questions about what it’s like living in Bluffton neighborhoods.
Steve has access to all the gated neighborhoods and plantations. Some agents do not have access to some of the upscale and luxury neighborhoods. Oftentimes, they must go through a few hoops to get access. This can delay things and sometimes prevent you from getting an offer in on your dream home before others do.
