Steve, Thank you so much for being our realtor during the purchase of our home in Paseo. You were wonderful to work with and guided us in the right direction while answering all of our questions and concerns in determining which unit to purchase. Every step during the process was handled superbly by either you or your amazing staff.  What was most comforting was the rapid response (minutes, not hours or days!) to any questions along the way. We were given a list of all vendors used by the previous owner and any questions we had once living in our home were answered immediately. I would recommend Steve Zajas as being the best realtor we have ever worked with.  His dedication and passion for being the best realtor possible is unsurpassed.

Thank you!  
Walter & Susan Mauck

If you are looking for results in either buying or selling your home, look no further than Steve Zajas and his team.  Steve expertly guided us through the simultaneous sale of our twin villa and the purchase of our single family home, both in Paseo.  His level of knowledge, astute business sense and results-oriented focus were keys to making both transactions successful.  Steve realistically assesses Paseo market conditions and gives no nonsense advice, which for us proved to be spot-on.  His knowledge of Paseo properties, models, amenities and fee structures is extensive.  He is ultra responsive to concerns and questions, and is an all around REALLY NICE guy.  His team is superb - his photographer one of the best we've seen.  Contact Steve with confidence when you are needing a true professional - he can't help but exceed your expectations in every way.

Steve is extremely knowledgable, totally professional and made my afternoon of viewing homes incredibly enjoyable. He made our long-distance home purchase completely smooth and easy. He and his team went above and beyond to make our experience the best of any real estate transaction we have ever been a part of (and we have been a part of many). Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would absolutely entrust him to help us with any future real estate activities and would urgently recommend him to any friend or family member looking to purchase a home in Paseo. We cannot wait to spend time in our new South Florida home and we have Steve to thank for it. We cannot recommend Steve Zajas more highly.

​Steve Zajas is by far the most knowledgeable real estate agent regarding Paseo and its market conditions. He represented us in a recent sale of our single-family home, and we found him to be very professional. We highly recommend him.

To us, Steve Zajas is a great (and we do mean to use that word) real estate  broker-- who has earned our trust many times over, who has been there for us every step of the way-- and who has always "made it happen" (so we can live our dreams). He comes with our highest recommendations.

Steve Zajas and his team at Morris and Hunt provided invaluable service to us in acquiring our new Paseo Casita. Like a similar testimonial, we also viewed casita models but eventually
purchased one that we had not seen in person. Steve viewed the property, took pictures, and provided details for us to make our decision to buy. He also gladly suffered innumerable questions that we peppered him with over the course of a few weeks. When we took a Thanksgiving vacation to Captiva we thought we would just "scout out" the area for a potential Florida home. We fell in love with Paseo. Steve made the whole process so easy that we were able to have a settlement on our property by December 30, 2015. We saw our beautiful new home in January for the first time and love it. We can't wait to start enjoying it soon. Overall we are very pleased and happy with Steve and his staff!!!

My husband and I recently sold our Casita in Paseo, and we just want to express what a pleasure it was to work with Steve and his team at Morris & Hunt Realty. Steve is the kind of person who makes you feel comfortable from the word go. He is professional, friendly and knowledgable. He helped us list our home to sell, and sell it did! We felt so confident listing with him and our results speak for themselves,as our home had an offer within the first week! Steve knows Paseo and understands both buyers and sellers needs and takes the time to listen. Also, the flow of information was so easy and relevant, and the lines of communication were so open. We always knew that if we contacted Steve, he would reply in a timely manner, which is very reassuring when handling a real estate transaction. Buying or selling a home can be a stressful situation, and this stress was lessened because we had such a sense of being in good hands. My 3 and 5 year old daughters even adored Steve and had to hug him anytime they saw him! I hope you have the joy of working with Steve, too.

Steve Zajas was recommended to us by the sales team at Paseo as being the most successful realtor operating in Paseo. Never a truer phrase. Steve made his mark with my wife and I immediately with his no nonsense, honest and forthright approach. Steve made some recommendations for viewing and arrangements, took photos and we sat back. Viewings at first were disappointing showing the difficulty at the time of the market, but it was quality rather than quantity that Steve was dealing with. Within a few weeks Steve had found a buyer and the rest of the process of the sale was painless apart from leaving our beautiful Casita. I thoroughly commend and recommend Steve and Morris & Hunt for buyers and sellers alike. Thoroughly professional and effective.

Brian & Susan Jones

When asked to express my feelings concerning the listing, sale and closing of our property in Paseo, I was happy to oblige. Like the other comments on the testimonials page, our experience with Steve Zajas and his team were exceptional from start to finish. Our story has a slight twist to it. We planned a trip halfway around the world to Thailand to spend time with family. Fortunately and unfortunately we received a satisfactory offer on our home and started the paperwork process just before we left. Steve and his team along with Noble Title shepherded the process through, with the 12 hour time change and occasional communication glitches, seamlessly to the point that all the documents were handled in the west and our time with family in the east was never disturbed. To be on vacation and not have to worry about the details of the transaction was extremely satisfying to us.

Thank you Steve,

My husband and I came to Paseo because our daughter chose it as her wedding venue. After spending three days there, we fell in love. Being from Chicago, we felt it was time to have an escape from the cold and this was the perfect time and place. I am a teacher, and my husband was in a busy time of his building, so we didn't have the time to travel back and forth to Florida. Steve made the experience of buying in the Paseo community easier than if we were actually there. He was attentive, approachable and more than reliable in matching us in our dream vacation home. He made us so comfortable, that we purchased the home based on the pictures, his attention to descriptive detail and genuine investment in our satisfaction.

We are beyond happy with our home and have Steve to thank.

Steve Zajas is the best!
We have bought and sold several homes in the past but buying our Paseo property was a delightful experience. Steve has unique and rare qualities as a real estate agent - he is respectful, kind and professional. We very much valued his guidance and expertise.

Thank you Steve we are so grateful we found you!

Just wanted to personally thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job selling our home so fast and helping us make it a painless process! We were very impressed with your entire team and we appreciated your wealth of knowledge in terms of marketing a home the right way to prospective buyers. Nobody knows Paseo better than you! The next time we move, we will definitely work with you again!

I'd like to take a moment to express our appreciation to you for helping us sell our home in Paseo and purchase our new home. Steve, we have been married 47 years. We have bought and sold over 20 homes during those 47 years. We worked with realtors on ALL those transactions. Without question, you were the most professional agent we have ever worked with. Your first goal was to determine just what we were looking for in a new home. Then you went to work to help us find that. Your second goal was to sell our home at the best price in the shortest amount of time. It took all of 2 weeks to have an acceptable offer in your hand. You truly made the whole experience comfortable, as well as exciting. We would (and do) recommend you to anyone looking to make a real estate change.

Thank you for all your help!

Kelly and Marilyn Haley

I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to my realtor, Steve Zajas, with Sun Realty. From the moment that we met, he was just a fantastic person and Realtor.

Steve is so informative about each step of the real estate process. He sat down with my husband and I for hours and answered any question that we may have had regarding whether or not we should list our home here in Esperanza in Paseo.

Even before we could think of a question, Steve had already covered it for us. He is a thorough, dependable, knowledgeable, and an extremely motivated individual that is just a pleasure to know as a person and also to get to work with on a professional level.

Steve sold our home for us in 1 day! He was so organized and did not leave any room for any errors. He had every detail listed on our contract and was our voice during the entire real estate transaction of the sale of our home. He made selling our home just completely effortless for us and we had total confidence that everything that we were signing was completely legal and binding with no surprises.

I just would like to highly recommend Steve to anyone who even is contemplating of selling or buying a home. He will be glad to come over, sit with you, and answer all of your questions in the most calming, non-pushy manner. He is patient, kind, and very encouraging of any decision you may want to make.

I give Steve an A+++++ in his real estate ability. He is an excellent Realtor and now also our friend. It doesn't get much better than that. Someone that not only wants to help one sell their home but also becomes a friend after the sale of your home. The world needs more genuinely kind people like Steve.

If you are looking for a professional real estate agent, we highly recommend Steve Zajas. He is very devoted to his job and knows his job very well. Steve would respond to emails within minutes and was always willing to answer any questions we had… even if it was regarding decorating tips or shopping advice for our new home! 

We really felt his interest to make our experience the best. From our first meeting to closing, we appreciated Steve's enthusiasm, communication style, and expert advice when listing our home.

Steve's guidance on staging, photography, and listing details really showcased our property.

We would recommend him to anyone who wanted to purchase, or sell a home.

Thank you Steve.

Debby and Tony Mancuso

My wife Vilma and I would like to take the time to acknowledge what a tremendous job Steve Zajas has done for us in selling our Capistrano casita.

Steve went above-and-beyond to handle the entire transaction effortlessly and did a fantastic job of keeping us informed every step of the way! We were made well aware of everything that transpired during this sale, and everything was handled professionally, efficiently and with superior customer service.

If we or any of our family members should ever need another property sold, we will be sure to work with Steve again.

David and Vilma Magnante

Dear Steve,

Wow! From the time we contacted you to closing, you were unbelievable with your quick responses, guidance, expertise, kindness, patience, and professionalism.

Although the purchasing process can be arduous, you were the "constant" for us the whole time. Steve, we told you what we were looking for and some realtors might have balked, but you got us exactly what we wanted and quite frankly, much more!

Back in N.J. we kept telling friends that we feel confident in the process because of our realtor, as he is quite simply, the best.

If someone is reading this section for the first time in their pursuit of a house in Paseo, stop and look no further. Just call Steve Zajas and trust me, you will be glad you did. There isn't anyone better!

Thank you Steve for your guidance. Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for making our dream come true.

Kim & I would like to express our graditude to you for affording us the benefit of your real estate knowledge and experience in selling our condo in Paseo.

While it was bitter-sweet for us to sell, (but we WILL be back to you again in the future as Paseo buyers again), you helped us maximize our selling opportunities, and price.

We sold in less than 1 month! But more importantly, you guided us through the entire process, including assisting with inventories and walk-thru's while we were out of town. You also provided us with solid feedback and market "wisdom".

On top of that, because you sold our place and we closed so quickly, you have even helped us keep our Paseo vacation plans by finding us Paseo rentals... during peak season! Thank God we found you Steve...

Much appreciated,
Kim & Rick Brooks
Orchard Park, NY


Just a short note to thank you for a superior job on the recent sale of our Paseo home. Having experienced your great services on the original purchase of our home, we were rewarded with a glitch-free sale and very quick closing on our property. A SALE IN SIX DAYS was a great bonus. Kudos to all!

Hi Steve,

I wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much my wife and I appreciated the ease and efficiency at which you assisted us through the process of purchasing our Florida Home.

We were familiar with the Paseo complex in Ft. Myers and knew that this community was the place for us… the process of buying and closing on a home remotely from Indiana 
could not have been easier as a result of your skillful guidance.

Thank you for helping us secure our Paseo home, it is just what we were hoping for!

Mike & Diane Buechlein

Dear Steve,

We want to thank you for all you have done for us this year. From selling our town home quickly and professionally, to helping us purchase our new home in Esperanza- you have stood by us through the entire process.

You have a way of making people feel comfortable in any situation, and you were able to anticipate our needs. We appreciate the extra care you took with us, although I imagine that every one of your clients feels the same way!

We also thank you for our "welcome to your new home" goodie bag - we have been enjoying that very much!

You are a great representative of Paseo, and we are doubly fortunate to have you live here.

​Thank you once again for being so special, so real, and so caring.

Thank-you Steve for all the good advice (even when I wasn't so sure...). I know I'm a 'little' late in sending you a big thank-you, consider it your yearly "patience" test!!

From "listing contract-to-closing" in 120 days... WOW! I had my doubts for awhile, it seemed like everything was going against the sale, but you kept reassuring me. You kept me up-dated each step of the way and it made letting go of a place that I really loved, just a little bit easier!

Even when I balked at a couple of your suggestions... you took the time and exhibited great patience, until I eventually had to agree that you were right... and you were :o)

Thank-you for everything!

Hi Steve!

I wanted to drop you a note of thanks from Deb and I for all you and your team have done for us with our purchase in Paseo. From the very first phone call to the day we moved in, you were there for us! Your approach with your customers and your unmatched wisdom and understanding goes beyond Realtor and moves in to the ‘friend’ category. Thanks again for all you did for us. Without you we would still be on the outside looking in!!!

Thank you my friend!

Norma and I would like to thank you and your team for the great experience we have had in transitioning from our Paseo condo to our soon to be finished, standalone Casita.

In less than three months we bought and sold in Paseo. With your help and guidance we have fulfilled our goals. Your professionalism and knowledge made us feel very comfortable in both the buying and selling process.

When I nicknamed you the “Master Realtor” I wasn’t too far off, every issue and question that came up in the process was dealt with in extraordinary diligence and timing. You surround yourself with people that are experts in their fields and you don’t leave any stone unturned.

Thanks for a job well done! The Paseo family is what it is today because of people like you. We are very privileged to be part of this community.

It is with great pleasure and gratitude that we share our comments and give a ringing endorsement of Steve Zajas to all of you that read this note. We can't imagine what it would have been like to go through the process of buying our home in Paseo without you Steve, and your patience, guidance, and wisdom.

We have purchased and sold a number of homes here in Canada, but with the thought of purchasing a home in another Country, well... we knew we would need an exceptionally talented representative. Someone who was highly experienced and competent, who possessed great communication and listening skills, and with Steve Zajas we found all of that and more!

It was abundantly clear right from the start, that we were working with the best and smartest real estate professional around. Steve made each stage of the sale effortless for us and all was accomplished with his humility and grace.

"We are very fortunate to have met you Steve, and we gladly and enthusiastically recommend you to anyone and everyone. All levels of service imaginable were met, "Beyond our Expectations".

Joan & Ted Kummer

After getting off to a somewhat rocky start working directly with the Paseo sales center, a friend recommended that we contact Steve Zajas. Well, I can only say that I'm just SO glad that I did!

He was a pleasure to work with and was very quick to respond to any little question that we had. And because we were first-time homebuyers, believe me... we had a LOT of questions!

Since we chose to do “new-construction,” Steve also did a great job of making us feel at ease during what can be a very long and stressful process by constantly reassuring us that everything was going according to plan.

I cannot thank Steve (and his wonderful Team) enough for all of their hard work and efforts to get us the home of our dreams!

We first met Steve about 3 years ago when he was helping my brother purchase a condo in Paseo. Our first impression was of a friendly, enthusiastic, informed Realtor with a vast knowledge of Paseo. Since then, we have gotten to know Steve as a fellow resident of Paseo. He is honest, caring, and so much more than any other Realtor we have met. He is consistently thorough, conscientious, and optimistic! Steve sold our townhome for us and we are building a single family home in the Esperanza section of Paseo. We tend to be "fiscally conservative" (OK, OK- we are WORRIERS!)-but Steve kept us totally informed and relaxed through the whole process of selling. If you are thinking of buying or selling in Paseo- Steve is THE person to work with!

Ken and Linda Ripley
Fort Myers, FL

Working with Steve could not have been better! He helped us sell our casita in Paseo and then purchase a brand-new villa in Esperanza at Paseo -- and made the process virtually effortless for us. He gave us great advice, which led to us selling the casita in an amazing 8 days! Then, he ensured the purchase of our new home went smoothly -- he even attended our "walk-through". We would recommend Steve to anyone looking for a positive experience!!

Now that everything is signed, sealed, and delivered, I want to express to you how happy I (we) have been with you and your staff. I wish I had more money to invest because you make everything pain free  and were always on top of any issue or question that we had. Your advice was "right on the money" relative to dealing with the sellers agent and think that no one could have gotten a better deal! Overall, this was an easy transaction that could not have gone any smoother. A mere thank-you is not sufficient to express how happy we have been dealing with you on this purchase and will never consider using anyone else for our Florida property investing at Paseo (if there are any more). You are more than a SALESMAN, you are a professional in every manner and we thank you for your help and advice. You can give our name to anyone to confirm this.

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how instrumental you were in my recent purchase at Paseo. From our initial conversation you were totally upfront and honest, which is extremely refreshing in your profession! My numerous emails and phone calls were always answered immediately. I can't thank you enough for your handling of the sale, from your communications with me as well as with the other parties involved in the sale. Well done! I wouldn't hesitate referring you to anyone!

Thanks again.

THANK YOU! GRAZIE! DZIEKUJE! On a beautiful sunny November day in 2012 sitting at the Paseo Tiki bar, John and I were talking about how nice it would be to have a place in Paseo's new neighborhood... Esperanza. So as we were talking our good friend David came by and we started talking to him about it and all he said was "If you want things done, call Steve Zajas. Not only does he sell a lot in Paseo, he also lives here so he knows everything!"

So after thinking about it we gave Steve a call and he met up with us that afternoon. He come over to our condo, took a good look around, and then sat at our dining table for a couple of hours. First impressions? Honest, reliable, sincere and very knowledgeable! Steve explained to us what to look for when you're buying (especially coming from the cold, grey and gloomy northern winters).

He asked us why do we come here??? Of course we said the sunshine, warmth, lightness & brightness, etc. So we discussed things we hadn't even thought to consider before when looking for a home in a totally different climate than we are used to considering. He just opened our eyes to so many things that were never explained to us when we bought our first home here in Paseo... boy did we wish we knew him then!

So after our meeting we took a drive to look at lots in Esperanza, and by that evening we had made up our mind. The next morning we put our condo up for sale and drew up a contract for our new Twin Villa in Esperanza!

Steve has been so helpful to us from the minute we met him. He listed our condo and SOLD IT IN A WEEK! Then he helped us with all the information we needed for the new place. He gives his clients the utmost in service and attention. If you have questions you can ask him, and if he doesn't know he'll get the answers for you! We felt so good dealing with Steve that we would highly recommend him to everyone, especially other Canadians!

Steve, we just love all the weekly updates you send us on the process of our Twin Villa, it's so exciting because it feels like we are there ourselves. You have been a tremendous help to us, you have a passion for what you do and for your clients, your clients don't become "someone you sold a place to", we become friends and neighbors.

We've seen you in action how you'll be driving by and see someone you know and then stop or back-up to say hello or send a simple little email saying "Hey kiddo how's it going" which all means so much to everyone... because you really DO care!

Most realtors have databases of clients.... your database is composed of "Friends that are truly more like Family" and we are so happy to be a part of your database!

Steve, your are the best at what you do. We Thank You for everything you have done for us, and for always being there when we need you the most! We look forward to sharing more cocktails and dinners with you, because as we have said before, "You're not just a realtor.... you're a Good Friend too"

We recently closed on our new Paseo home and then spent a whirlwind week getting the home furnished. We are very happy with our new home, AND the Paseo Community! On the plane ride back to our primary residence in Minnesota, we spent time reflecting on all the events that occurred since we first started researching the Paseo Community up and until we completed the closing process. One of the key contributors throughout all of this was Steve Zajas. In simple terms, Steve is the "Real Deal"!

Our first interaction with Steve was through a long distance phone call to seek information about Paseo. Steve was very patient and polite as we peppered him with question after question. Not only was he able to answer all of our questions, but he also provided additional insights that helped us with our decision. Following this initial phone conversation, we proceeded to have numerous additional conversations on the phone and through email. Steve was always VERY prompt in his responses and we always felt like important clients.

We then took the next step to visit Paseo and look seriously at resale and new construction options (we had casually visited Paseo previously). Steve was able to coordinate all the arrangements with the Fly and Buy program for us so it could not have been any easier on our end!

When we arrived at Paseo, Steve was there to meet with us immediately and show us properties. As we visited each property, Steve was a wealth of knowledge about the floor plans, features, exposures, views, location, etc. Steve has insights that other Realtors quite simply do not since he actually lives in Paseo. The importance of this cannot be stressed enough for anyone looking for a Realtor!

After a long day of looking at properties and deciding we wanted to go with new construction, we returned to the Paseo model that we were staying in and put together a list of questions. We then contacted Steve and he graciously offered to come over and discuss our questions. This was more than we expected since it was about 8:00 PM! We decided to move forward with the purchase, and Steve then assisted us with all of the paperwork.

He also did our pre-closing walk through for us (which was much appreciated) as it saved us the cost of a flight to Fort Myers! After the closing, Steve was immediately in touch with us to ensure all went well and that any repair items on our "punch list" were being addressed. We were quite impressed with the care and service that Steve provides to his clients after the initial sale!

In summary, Steve has tremendous knowledge about the Paseo Community AND provides exemplary service to his clients. This is why Steve is the "Real Deal"!

Just wanted to give a quick thank-you for all your help with everything. From finding a place that totally fits us to answering numerous emails and phone calls. It was a pleasure to work with you from beginning to end. My wife and I are extremely excited about our recent purchase in Paseo. Look forward to seeing you around sometime!

We have enjoyed Paseo for the last 5 years while wintering in Southwest Florida. This year we decided to sell our condo and have a house built in a new section of Paseo. Steve Zajas helped us buy, and sell our residences. Within THREE days of listing our condo it was sold; while at the same time, he helped in the purchase of our new home. Steve is very professional, honest, and a good listener. He has contacts and knows Paseo, as he lives here. What a wonderful experience, and a big load off our minds with such important decisions. I know from examples that: You ARE the real estate agent who has “clients recommending their friends”.

All the best,

Dear Steve,

We can't thank you enough for your professionalism, expertise, and hard work in helping us find our new home in Paseo! We only moved in 2 weeks ago but already realize how much we love our brand new Casita, the neighborhood, and all the super nice people in this beautiful community!

You were instrumental in guiding us toward the ‘right’ purchase. When we thought we had the right home selected and were ready to proceed with offers… you advised to wait just a bit longer and assured us we could do “better”, and you’d be able to find us an even better fit. Well…you couldn’t have been more correct! And more than anything, we appreciated and valued your honesty and integrity in making us the happiest new home owners!

Your years of experience in this market are unmatched and you are a true professional… in a class by yourself! We will happily recommend you to all other prospective buyers (and sellers) looking for the ‘Best of the Best’ agent in SW Florida.

Thanks again and our best regards,

From the minute we met Steve we felt at home in his company. His cheery disposition, knowledgeable real estate information, and witty and great sense of humour made us feel comfortable and confident with our Paseo purchase. (Loved being chauffeured in his amazing red car too!)

We have good friends living in Paseo who recommended the area to us. That, along with Steve's professionalism, helped give us the confidence to make a quick purchase during a visit in March 2012. We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly we bought and have never looked back. Steve took us to different communities as part of our comparison shopping and remained unbiased as we explored the options of purchasing in other areas.

After spending our first Christmas in our new home we know we made the right decision! Steve's name came up positively during many conversations all the way from the gym to "lanai wine-and-cheese parties"! Steve's integrity and passion for living in Paseo were evident to us and to anyone we spoke to.

You're in the best of hands working with Steve!

My wife, Nancy and I, recently purchased a first floor condo in the Paseo Community in Fort Myers, FL. In purchasing the property, we dealt with Sun Realty and our Sales Associate was Mr. Steve Zajas. He found us the perfect property which fit our needs and matched what we were able to afford.

My wife is fully retired, but I am still working as a university professor. My discipline is Recreation, Sport and Tourism Management. One of my core courses that I teach has a focus on customer service, servant leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship. With regard to Steve's performance in these business criterion areas, he exceeded our expectations. We found Mr. Zajas to be highly knowledgeable, extremely professional, and "user" friendly. We built a trust relationship and his dedication to meeting our needs was outstanding. Steve maintains the highest levels of integrity, respect, compassion, and service to his clients. His standards of excellence are beyond compare. Above everything else, he is a great "people" person and possesses outstanding communication and human relationship skills. He loves what he does and it clearly shows in his day to day contact with clients. Most importantly, he says what he does, and he does what he says.

Both Nancy and I found Steve to be the "best of the best".

Hey Steve.

We have to say that it was an absolute pleasure working with you on the purchase of our home in Paseo. We have dealt with a few realtors over the years but not until now have we really appreciated what a realtor should offer - the bar has been raised! Your services will be highly recommended to all family and friends looking to transact in the Southwest Florida region. From our initial sit-down, through to the close of our home, you were very attentive to all of our needs. Your professionalism, integrity, honesty and diligence were always apparent. Thanks again for all your help Steve. You are a FABULOUS realtor! For the record, we don't use that word loosely!

whenever questions arose after we got back home. We truly want to thank you for the photo updates each week, as it was so much fun to follow the building process! Thanks also for doing the walk-through in our absence and finding things we may have overlooked. We are very appreciative of everything you have done for us to make this transition in our lives so exciting and enjoyable. You are a joy to work with!

Most sincerely,
Don and Patricia Baidinger

Thanks for your diligence and attention to details in our house sale. We are very glad we found you and your website. Week after week you brought qualified buyers to our property. You provided excellent advice on things to do in order for our house to be well presented in this difficult market. If we had another need for a realtor in the Fort Myers area, we would surely call YOU!

​It has been a pleasure working with you.

We can't thank you enough for all the help you've given us. We've used you twice before, and we didn't think you could possibly match the previous support... Well, you surpassed it! Any realtor can show you property and process paperwork, but the extra effort you put in to make sure everything goes perfectly is wonderful. Your communication skills are the best and you are always in a cheerful mood. It's no wonder your past clients are so loyal.

Keep up the great work!

The terms ethical, honest, sincere, reliable and knowledgeable are often tossed about in any business, but in my experience, few actually deserve such praise: Steve Zajas is one of the few people I have encountered who embody that praise.

Steve was introduced to us by a fellow Canadian who, like us, found a haven in Paseo. After describing our needs to Steve, he expertly guided us, showing us the finer points of southwest Florida and especially Paseo. You could see the enthusiasm in his explanations and the confidence in his years of experience.

In a few short days (and countless questions) we decided upon a townhouse that we purchased, but when we thought Steve's job was done, we were pleasantly surprised. Steve walked us through every step of the building process, the closing commitments and documentation, anticipating what we had not even begun to question. In short, the service was beyond exemplary or turnkey, it was a whole new class of professionalism.

I have since had Steve successfully represent us on two other Paseo closings and have always been amazed with his dedication to his profession. His knowledge and experience are a blessing to the uninitiated new Floridians like us, and his demeanor and enthusiasm make the hopes of finding the right home a reality.

Steve is at the top of his game and I won't hesitate to send any and all prospective buyers or sellers his way. Warmest regards and thanks Steve.

Dear Steve,

Just a thank-you for the wonderful job you did selling our condo.You went above & beyond the "call of duty" as a Realtor. You made our transition very smooth & pain-free. We felt good in putting our trust in you... and you surely did not let us down! You were professional, prompt, organized, and QUITE knowledgable! Thank you for keeping us WELL informed throughout the selling process. That put us at ease-especially since we are out of state most of the time. Again, Jeff & I really thought you were a joy to do business with! I love the new addition to your website! Every Sunday we look forward to checking out the construction status on our new twin villa that we also bought from you, (thanks to your new weekly progress photos). So happy to have met you, and now call you a friend.

Take care!

Hi Steve,

Just wanted to thank you again for all your help in getting us settled into our new place at Paseo. We truly appreciated all your help throughout the entire process. With your Paseo experience as well as your knowledge of the area and real estate, we felt your advice and assistance was invaluable from the contract negotiations stage right to the final walk through with Jason.

As you know, we have recommended you to both my brother and my good friend from Toronto who are looking to purchase a place in Florida. We will not hesitate to recommend you to 
anyone who is interested in a Florida property.

Thanks again!

As Canadians, we dream of Florida sunshine during the long winter months. But to make that dream a reality takes a little bit of courage and the help of a very knowledgeable and experienced sales agent.

We met Steve through very good friends of ours who have used his services for both the buying and selling of their first Paseo property, and then again for buying another (even larger) Paseo home.

They were so pleased with him that they recommended him to other family members and friends. When you are introduced to an agent by a close and trusted friend, you know you are in good hands!

Steve’s love of Paseo is evident as he takes you through the community and it’s wonderful amenities. He obviously has a great reputation with Paseo residents and past clients who greet him warmly upon seeing him.

He is very knowledgeable about Paseo and the Fort Myers area. Steve guided us through the buying and closing process and ALWAYS returned our phone calls and endless e-mails, no matter how trivial the questions. If he didn’t know, he found out or redirected us to someone who knew the answer.

He went above-and-beyond by taking pictures, doing our closing inspection for us, and even taking us furniture shopping to introduce us to the furniture stores Fort Myers has to offer!

Steve is a very ethical and honorable real estate agent and we would in turn recommend him to any and all family or friends who are dreaming of their own Florida getaway.

Colleen and Vince Chimienti

Steve is without a doubt one of the best agents we have ever worked with. He has gone above and beyond our expectations over the course of our recent home purchase in Florida and we have no hesitation to recommend his services. His attention to detail and continued follow-up has sincerely impressed us so much so, that we consider Steve our exclusive agent and friend. Thanks Steve for all of your hard work, integrity and dedication to doing an excellent job.

You helped us in our selection and buying process at Paseo in so many ways:
- Your knowledge of the community and help in choosing our lot
- Understanding current market values and incentives as we negotiated our purchase price
- You even were part of our walk-through at closing 
(your critical eye spotting several things we probably would have missed)

You are a true partner and advisor, and no one knows Paseo as well as you do! You know your business and you care that your clients have the best buying experience possible.  

Thank you for all your help.

Dear Steve,

We are so excited to have just closed on our second Paseo vacation home, and look forward to calling you "neighbour" again!

We were so fortunate to have you represent us in the sale of our first Paseo property, and just as fortunate to have you help us negotiate the purchase of our new townhome in Paseo.

Thank you for going above and beyond in every aspect of the deal. It is so evident that you love what you do, you love Paseo, and you truly care about your clients. You are more than just an excellent are a trusted friend.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!

The best thing Paseo has going for it is you - STEVE ZAJAS. You go above and beyond constantly to make your clients feel at home in this great community called Paseo. Your knowledge of Paseo and the surrounding area are unmatched. I loved spending time with you Steve, just to glean more information about the area and the "natives of Paseo."

I looked forward throughout the construction for your continued updates - both photos and the written words, and occasionally that smile at the other end of the phone with information. Thanks so much for that "extra mile" - and you calmed my fears when I wondered if I made the right decision on my home. You went that "extra mile" by doing the final walk-through when I couldn't make it. Thank you for the fact that I knew I could trust you to take the final look at my property and send me the results.

Your sense of humor is just what I needed when I was asking serious questions from miles away and knew that I have someone I can trust on the other end of the line. You answered questions I didn't even ask - but they were in my head - it's amazing. Thanks, Friend...

I have and will continue to "market" for you - my trip on the auto train coming down from Virginia was a marketing trip for Paseo and Steve Zajas. I am positive we have at least one future client!

I am glad that you live nearby in our great community of Paseo. I hope Stock Construction and Paseo know what a "gem" they have in a guy named, "Steve." You are "one of a kind" in the field of real estate. I'm thinking of writing a booklet titled: "What Every Realtor Should Learn from Steve Zajas."

​Thanks again, Steve - you are a lifetime friend.

What started as a simple inquiry on a Paseo property, escalated into the purchase and closing of a beautiful home... all within 8 weeks! Steve's knowledge of Fort Myers real estate, and more importantly the Paseo market, is unsurpassed! Hands down, Steve is the best realtor we have ever worked with. All along our 8 week journey, we know he had our best interest at heart, and can't thank him enough for our beautiful vacation home!

A quick note here to simply say thank-you for your tremendous efforts in pulling our closing together. We had a lot of moving pieces in our agreement to sell (and we knew that)... but your diligence, your patience, and simply your efforts, combined, moved us to the closing table, and for that, my partners and I thank you! We would absolutely recommend your services to anyone wanting to sell a property in Paseo!

So, again, thank you!

K Ayers

Well Steve...

we found you and Paseo on an internet search on April 22, 2012 and today is May 30th, and here we just left our brand-new home in the Paseo Community in Fort Myers and simply could NOT be happier!

From the minute we contacted you, we felt we had a Paseo expert on our side. You answered our many email questions promptly, arranged for us to receive an information packet and sent us many photos of available properties.

You listened to all our concerns and questions and always gave us clear answers. You arranged our trip using the Fly and Buy program and then spent the day exploring different properties with us. When we found the home for us, you walked us through the settlement process and we closed via mail.

You did the final walk through prior to settlement, sent us that report and we felt confident in your examination of our property. You made everything easy, painless and stress-free. (if buying a house can ever be stress free).

And since we have closed, (two weeks to the day after seeing this home), we have contacted you about many miscellaneous questions... stores, directions, and many how-to-do-this-and-that questions. You were STILL there for us!

You will forever be a big part of our decision to buy in Paseo. It is so appropriate that you also chose to live in this special community.

Thank you Steve.

Dear Steve,

Thanks for the time and special attention you provided during our recent purchase of a beautiful Paseo property. You photographed and described the home we ultimately purchased to the last detail over the phone and across the distance, and we appreciate your “going the extra mile” to assist. In addition, thank you for scheduling the viewing and closing at times that would suit our ability to travel to Ft. Myers. You truly are a Paseo expert, and we are grateful for your kindness, good service and attention to details.

We want to thank you for your assistance with the purchase of our new home in Paseo. We appreciate the time you spent from discussing and showing us floor plans, locations and options available to doing the walk-through to support our mail-in closing. We think back at going from "just looking" to "we want to buy", when our other unit sold sooner than expected. Your professionalism and knowledge of Paseo as well as your willingness to make time available in less than a day's notice made it possible for us to purchase our home. We were also very grateful for your suggesting and coordinating a local craftsman for additional upgrades. We moved into our new home in Paseo a few weeks after the closing. Everything is perfect, and we know we made the right decision to purchase in Paseo. We cannot thank you enough for going above and beyond what we would have expected from our Realtor. Should you ever need a reference or recommendation, please do not hesitate to give out our phone number or email addresses.

Hi Steve,

We wanted to let you know how happy we are with our new villa in Paseo! It is more beautiful than we imagined and we could not have done it without your help and insightful advice! You were always available to answer questions along the way (and we had many!!!). You were also very helpful at closing time when things were getting down to the wire. It was wonderful for us to be able to have our family stay with us for Easter break. Everyone loved Paseo and with all of the amenities, there is definitely something for everyone! It is truly a dream come true for us to own a home in such a beautiful community.

Thanks again and hope to see you around the neighborhood!

Buying a home in Florida was the easy part, but selling a home in Florida can be a lot more difficult... especially the way the economy has turned for the United States. But having an agent as professional, dedicated, & your attention to detail for our home, made the progression such an easy process. Jerry & I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we appreciate the warmth, honesty, & your exceptional skills as an agent. You are funny, charming & a no-nonsense kind of gentleman. We are honored to call you a new friend & as well to let you know that if there is anything we can do for you, we are just a phone call away. Oh by the way, I just wanted to say Thank-You so much for introducing me to Norman Love Chocolate….So Delicious…. :)

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

Thank you for selling us our vacation home. It was a wonderful experience! I was in the Real Estate, Insurance, and Property Management business for 43 years, so I had a lot of contacts with Realtors, having hired and trained many. You possess more of the best skills required of a Realtor than I have ever seen in one person. You know your product, you communicate well, you determine a person needs, and you handle all the details on time, just to name a few.

Thanks again for making our purchase such an enjoyable experience.

Just a short note to let you know how much I appreciate your help over the past few months. Today, I was able to get some decorating ideas as I viewed every inch of the Capistrano model. When my mother mentioned how pleasant, kind, and understanding you were over the phone, I said, "That's why success follows him!"

Like many potential homebuyers looking to purchase property in Florida, we were faced with navigating through a maze of questions and concerns related to appropriately evaluating properties that we would consider investing in. As an added complication was also the fact that much of our initial search was undertaken and had to be accomplished by utilizing the internet, e-mail and text messaging with a realtor who we had never met! We had come across the website of Steve Zajas and within a short period of less than two months we would go from house hunters to home owners. How we made this transition is directly related to the skills and professionalism of Steve Zajas.

Steve is a professional who made us feel like we were his only client. Regardless of how many e-mails we wrote and questions we asked, Steve always took the time to return our inquires and do it in a manner that was both detailed and prompt during our search and purchasing process. We never once during all of the communications with Steve felt like we did not get all of our concerns addressed, rather on the contrary Steve always provided such a detailed explanation and background information that we felt extremely comfortable with each initiative that was undertaken.

On several occasions during our search and purchasing process Steve would comment ”This is what I would do, if I was purchasing for myself or my family”. While many realtors or sales people utter those words on a constant basis without a thought to what they mean, Steve actually treated us like an extension of his family. Today we are often cynical of people’s actions and motives and we have come to expect less from people as we remain guarded in extending our trust. Steve is a throwback to the old days of when “your word was your bond” 
and you cared about others rather than just yourself.

We could comment on how we are really happy with the purchase of our home in Paseo (it’s beautiful) or about the amenities associated with living there (they are first class), but we would rather leave that up to Steve to undertake.

Anyone fortunate enough to pick up the phone or e-mail Steve to inquire about living at Paseo will also begin a journey of becoming what we are now... 

“Steve’s new neighbors”.

About two years ago I decided to make the move to Fort Myers. No, I don't have friends or family in the area. I paid a visit to the City of Palms on a two day business trip and fell in love with the west coast location. I immediately contacted the local Chamber of Commerce to have them send me a relocation packet. As I was flipping through one of the magazines they sent to me, I came across the advertisement for Paseo. At that moment, I recall pointing to that page and saying to myself, "Some day I am going to live there!" I did a search on Google and thank heavens I did that search. That is what led me to Steve.

I felt as though he and I made an instant connection. You have to understand that I am very decisive and know what I like (and what I don't). I can tell that Steve listened to my likes and dislikes as he showed me several properties that had potential for me. What I loved most about working with Steve is his genuine caring for me as a person. He took the time and effort to really understand what this home purchase meant to me and it showed. I, unfortunely, was unable to buy my dream home during that first visit with Steve two years ago. He could have dropped me like a hot potato (as I'm sure many other realtors would do just to move on to the next sure thing). Instead, he stayed with me through thick and thin until the timing became right. I just closed on my casita two weeks ago and could not be happier. I couldn't have done it without Steve!!

If you want to know, how I know, that Steve listens and pays attention to his clients. Just take a look at his blog posting about my closing from December 16th. I couldn't have expressed my experience better if I were writing it myself. All I can say is "thank you" to Steve and someone "pinch me" as I still cannot believe I am FINALLY here in my new home. And, yes, I now have at least one friend in the Fort Myers area.

We hired Steve to sell our home after finding him online and realizing he was an expert in real estate for Paseo properties. We were relocating across the country, so it was VERY important that we sold our home quickly-which in this economic environment is extremely difficult! Imagine our surprise when, within TWO days, Steve brought us a client of his who was looking to buy. Within a week we were under contract with a cash buyer to sell our home! We would VERY HIGHLY recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell, especially in the Paseo community. He knows his stuff and is very easy to work with. We truly believe our property would not have sold (albeit as quickly) without Steve as our real estate agent.

Jen & Carl Coccaro
Madison, WI​

We have been involved in several real estate transactions during the past year, both in Florida, New York and Missouri, which required interaction with a number of different Realtors. Without a doubt, Steve Zajas is absolutely the best by far; he is an exceptional agent! Steve represented us in the sale of our Paseo town home and the subsequent purchase of a new home to be constructed here in Paseo.  Throughout the sale process he kept us informed in a timely manner, provided valuable feedback from potential buyers and always made us feel like we were his only client. His knowledge of real estate and ethical actions made us proud to have him representing us. Without his network of potential buyers and active marketing strategies, we know we would not have sold our townhome as quickly as we did.

On the purchase side of the process Steve sincerely represented our interests. He assisted us every step of the way as we assessed the best lot available in the subdivision, pointing out features and future marketability issues should there be a time when we’d ever want to sell the home. His counsel was informed and on the mark.

If you are looking for an ethical, caring, exceptionally knowledgeable and enthusiastic agent you can do no better than Steve. He sets a high standard (a gold standard) for himself and his clients are the beneficiaries. We are very fortunate to have his expertise in Paseo and the surrounding areas!

Hi Steve, Anna and I wanted to send you a note to express our appreciation. This has been a very exciting and enjoyable experience for us. You absolutely took all the stress away that I would have expected in a real estate transaction from Minnesota to Florida! You are a true professional and someone that I would refer a friend or family member to in an instant!

Thank You so much for going above and beyond the call of duty for us. We look forward to many years of enjoying the good life in Paseo.

I was pretty sure two years ago that you were the right guy to have as an agent, when you patiently listened to my vague ideas about owning property at Paseo. Then there was last year 
when I stepped back from the edge again. This year you welcomed me back, like the neighbor I have since become. Thanks for everything! You covered it all in detail and we had a few laughs along the way! The is the fouth property I've purchased and the first in Florida. I cannot think of another agent who went to the lengths that you did, but I don't have to.

You're the best!

"Hi Steve...

Just a short note of thanks and appreciation for the outstanding service you rendered as our buyer's agent, at every step of the way in our purchase and deal-closing experience at Paseo. That service came with a smile and sense of humor, but with your strong professional ethics and deep and rich real estate experience always shining through. Your intimate knowledge of this beautiful community, being a Paseo resident yourself, was a huge asset to us in assessing the features and prices of the various home models and the particular units available for sale; in making a decision; and in negotiating with the builder's representative. And during the month between the signing of the contract and our closing date, your responsiveness; attention-to-detail; well-informed and candid advice; and always prompt follow-up and personal attention (including handling the final "walk through" for us and shepherding all aspects of our "mail away closing") exceeded our expectations. And all that says nothing of the value to us of your post-closing referrals to proven local trades people and value-for-money home furnishings retailers. What we experienced as "above-and-beyond-the-call-of-duty service" seems routine and "all in a day's work" to you. Your commitment to excellence and the highest ethical standards in carrying out your profession is inspiring. We look forward to enjoying our beautiful new home at Paseo for many years to come, buoyed by the reassuring knowledge that those sunny days will include an "annuity benefit": having you as a friend and trusted advisor in our community."

Hi Steve,

As you know, we closed on our new home yesterday and I just wanted to tell you how much we have appreciated all your help and guidance! I had been researching the Ft Myers / Bonita Springs market for almost a year when I stumbled upon your website. (Thank you for calling me back the same day, by the way). It was THE turning point in making our dream a reality. The entire Paseo staff has been great, but it's important to have personal representation. Your insider knowledge of Paseo and the specific differences in various properties allowed us to make an informed decision. Thanks for your willingness to continue the search until we determined the best fit for our family. We are grateful that your experience with so many property sales ensured we got the extra considerations available to us. Lastly, it has been extremely helpful to have you representing our interests, checking on building progress, and communicating with both the development and title companies on our behalf these past months. . . right down to our closing details! We are very busy back in Illinois and were only able to visit the site and design center a couple of times throughout the process. Not sure we would have taken this big leap to build out-of-state without the confidence that we had YOU in our corner! I know you are a true professional, but Tom & I and the girls really feel we've gained a wonderful friend! We are excited to start our move this weekend!

Thank you so much, Steve, and we look forward to seeing you around the neighborhood.

You have been a great Real Estate Agent for us... From being a Buyer's Agent when we were purchasing our Flat, to being our Seller's Agent when we decided to sell it! You helped us arrive at a price that was fair and made our place saleable. You kept us informed every step of the way, with comments from buyers and agents, to statistics on the number of showings, offers, etc. It was a great experience from start-to-finish, and now here we are as you once AGAIN help us as our Buyer's Agent to purchase an even bigger unit here in Paseo!!!

Dear Steve,

It has been such a pleasure working with you. Thank you for selling our place so quickly (13 days!!), for such a fair price, and for ensuring that the transaction went so smoothly! As out-of-towners, we felt so at ease just giving you our key, and knowing you would take care of everything. You always made yourself so available, and always kept in close contact despite the miles between us. It is clear to us that you love what you do! Above all, thank you for your honesty, integrity and excellent representation. The knowledge and perspective that you bring to the table as a Paseo resident makes you, in our opinion, THE Paseo realtor to have! Thank you for helping us to negotiate our NEW purchase in Paseo. We look forward to closing on our new Paseo home, and feel grateful that you are our "realtor for life" in Florida! 

Thank you again for everything.

"Hello Steve...quick thank-you note:

I'm just writing you this to thank-you once again for all your good work in helping us find our Florida vacation home in Paseo. Your help with our closing, as well as the final walk-through was fantastic, and it really helped to know that we had someone "on our side" throughout the entire process! That said, dealing with everyone with Stock was quite enjoyable as well, and it gives us a great feeling to know that we made the absolute right decision in dealing with you, and deciding on Paseo! As I said, we'll recommend you to anyone else who may be looking
for their dream home in the South, as well. Hope to get down there and see you again soon."

James & Robin Albrecht

"We were already vacation home owners in Paseo and initially ran into Steve walking his dogs in the neighbourhood. If you think about it, selling to clients who are going to become your neighbours puts an additional pressure on Steve to serve with integrity. I am a Blackberry and email guy, so Steve and I got along great... getting instant i-Phone text responses to my many unreasonable requests. Whether I was in the neighbourhood or back up north, the whole process was able to move forward seamlessly. If you like a great deal and/or want to consider "short sales" or bank-owned, Steve is the guy to present a balanced and insider view of the pros and cons of new construction vs pre-owned, without being in a conflict of interest situation. Our transaction was bank-owned and from offer-to-close was three weeks! All this to say we would not hesitate to recommend Steve as a real estate agent, especially if you are looking at Paseo. With the Canadian dollar at par or higher, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Canadians. 

See you at the Tiki Bar!"

​"We had run into Steve by a lucky coincidence while researching the Florida real estate market via the internet. We have worked with many real estate agents in the past, and for the most part, at the end of the transaction, we were wondering why we had an agent in the first place! The situation with Steve was a completely different one. While one could walk into the Paseo sales center and execute a purchase on his own, I would reccomend against this idea, especially if the buyer is out of state. Steve was the most helpful person that we have ever worked with in real estate. From the time we talked on the phone, to the final mail-in closing, the walk-through, and providing advise on stores in the area to move our house into turnkey operation, he was always giving 100% commitment and steering us in the right direction. We truly can say that we would not be able to achieve everything that we have done with this purchase without Steve. We are very grateful and would not hesitate to reccomend Steve to anybody who considers a purchase at Paseo or any part of Southwest Florida."

Nirana Holdings, LLC

"We found Steve through a google search of Paseo. Once we talked to him, it became a no-brainer to use his services. He is the 'resident expert' on Paseo. He concentrated his efforts on exactly what we were looking for. His knowledge of the market and values in Paseo helped us immensely in the decsion making process. And once we bought, the services (advice) did not end. We highly recommend him."

"As we sit here next to the luxurious pool, it is hard for us to express our gratitude for assisting us in purchasing a place at Paseo. As you know we had visited many times previously, but it is nothing like the feeling of owning a place here. We would like to thank you for your hard work in finding and securing this opportunity for us. Not only did you send us the opportunity of a lifetime, but you followed through in every aspect of the deal. Not many people would purchase a place without seeing it first. However thanks to your review of the property and the pictures provided, we felt secure enough to complete a large transaction on your word alone. Once the deal was closed you were there to assist with any issues and were able to secure us items that were removed and were not supposed to be, according to the accepted offer. Steve, we would gladly recommend your services to others (already have). Chantelle, Carson and I would like to thank you again for assisting us on the purchase of our dream vacation house at Paseo."

"You have surpassed all our expectations of a great real estate agent. Your knowledge of the Paseo market and honest assessment gave us much confidence in purchasing our vacation home. Our home was bought sight unseen, we trusted you to be "our eyes" and you did not dissappoint. You guided us through the house with detailed reports on every inch of the property. Our instinct was right on... you had our vision. Thank-you for making our purchase a smooth and wonderful experience. Please keep up the good work, we will highly recommend you to all our friends and associates."

"Steve had a great sense of what we were looking for and provided us with several options to get it done, and then proceeded showing properties to our local family on our behalf. He continued to work through all the details with us from a distance, informing us about the market, location, and sending lots of pictures via e-mail. We made our decision and he did an excellent job assisting us with our negotiations. We closed without ever having been there and upon arrival found our property to be all we expected, and more. We thank him for a great job and highly recommend Steve."

"We cannot thank you enough for all you did to help us with our purchase in Paseo. The closing on Friday went very smoothly without our presence. It is a pleasure to work with an agent who conducts himself with such honesty and integrity. You are an asset to the profession of real estate agents. We will share with you a very unpleasant experience that we had in December 2009 when we visited Fort Myers to look at properties available for sale. We met with an agent whose name was given to us by someone who rented in Fort Myers. He was a high pressure salesman and made us uncomfortable. He was very unprofessional and dishonest. Consequently we would never recommend him. Fortunately in January 2010 we saw your website when we were making plans to return to Ft. Myers. We found your site extremely informative and easy to navigate. Keep up the good work. We hope to see you when we return. 
Thanks once again."

" Having bought and sold many properties over the years, I can tell you that we have never had a better buying experience than we had with Steve Zajas. He helped us determine the exact type of property we should be looking for, and then went out and found the perfect home! Steve invested a great deal of time educating us on banks, foreclosures, and the Florida market. I don't believe that anyone knows Florida as well as Steve. Never once did he put his interests ahead of our own. We feel quite fortunate that we had him on our side during our purchase. We have given his name to many people telling them just how great it was to work with Steve Zajas."

"Peter and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for all of your hard work and effort in helping us find our Florida dream home. From our first contact with you several months ago, you have been very diligent in responding to our numerous e-mails. During our recent visit to Florida, you were very generous with your time, and we appreciated and felt reassured with your knowledge of Southwest Florida."

Louise and Peter Jeffery

"We wanted a real estate agent to quickly get back to us with our questions (STEVE WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR US). We wanted to feel confident that all the details and follow-up were always in place (STEVE IS THE BEST FOLLOW UP PERSON WE HAVE EVER MET). Most importantly and amazingly (because he "met" us on the phone and the internet), Steve had a great sense of who we were as a couple, and exactly what home we would be happiest in. We felt he really listened to us and cared about us as a couple. We are grateful for knowing this man-
he comes with our highest recommendations!"

"Jennifer and I truly, TRULY appreciate what you have done every step of the way during this process. We will definitely think of you every time us northerners talk about weather and real estate in Southwest Florida!! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving!"

"There comes a time when everyone needs a trusted and knowledgeable agent when purchasing a new home. Steve, you were very professional and took whatever time my wife and I needed to find our dream home. If we ever buy another home in Florida, or anything to do with real estate in Florida, you are our guy... that's the truth!"
