Negotiation

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.

Communication

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.

Home Inspections and Repairs

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.

Financing

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. We have favorites that previous clients used and loved. We have discovered that word-of-mouth recommendations are the most reliable.

Contracts and Escrow

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. Hiring a buyer's agent who knows the process well and has years of experience processing these deals can mean a world of difference financially and legally for a buyer. 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:

  • Make sure each relevant party receives accurate documentation. This would include, for example, mortgage lenders, other financial professionals, real estate attorneys, insurance companies, and more if needed.
  • Keep account for due diligence and earnest monies between parties.
  • Organize or facilitate bids and repairs from contractors.
  • Work with your mortgage lender to ensure timely financing.
  • Work with the home appraiser to make sure valid appraisal is completed.
  • Schedule and attend walk-throughs.
  • Make sure contingencies have been satisfied.
  • Help with transfer of utilities.
  • Coordinate closing schedule.

Certifications and Memberships

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:

  • MLS of Hilton Head Island Member
  • Member Realtor® with the National Association of Realtors® (NAR)
  • Member Realtor® with the Hilton Head Area Association of Realtors® (HHAAOR)
  • South Carolina Association of Realtors® Member (SCR)

Personal Concierge

Steve can introduce you to Bluffton and the surrounding areas and give you the perspective of what it’s like to live here as a local. Local knowledge about schools, neighborhood events and the local scene can help you decide what neighborhoods fit you best. Steve wants to welcome you as a neighbor as well as a client.

Getting to Know You

Steve feels that he’s not just a real estate agent, but also a “Lifestyle Agent.” He makes it his duty to find you a home that meets your needs and budget but also takes a step further and makes sure it’s the perfect combination of amenities, ideal location, and design that fits you and your family. Getting to know you and your standards is an important step in finding you the best home in the Greater Bluffton areas of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

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.

Honesty is Key

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.

He’s local

Steve has offices in Hilton Head, Bluffton, and Sun City Hilton Head (Okatie). He knows the SC Low Country well and can answer any questions you have about the area including: local businesses, job market, events, schools, shopping, dining, and much more. 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.

Full Access

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. Steve has access to every property in the Hilton Head and Greater Bluffton SC area.
