Experience and Background
Carol and Steve began their Real Estate career in Northern California - Red Bluff in Tehama County. Our first purchase was 55 acres of rolling, oak covered hills west of town. We subdivided the land into 4 parcels, selling three and building a 31 X 80 foot house on the remaining parcel. Three more subdivisions in the area and two children later we moved to Pleasant Hill in Conta Costa county near the East Bay.
There we purchased the oldest house in the county - built in 1867. While remodeling the home we found square nails. It had a view of Mount Diablo and the surrounding valley. Our third child was born in Concord.
We then moved to Lodi in San Joaquin county to be near both of our parents. We purchased several homes and opened a Realty World office and hired over 10 Realtors to work with us. We personally bought and sold many homes and developed a Real Estate Investment Club for landlords.
December 31, 2005 our daughter Erica was paralyzed in Lodi and spent almost 2 months in 2006 in hospitals and 10 months in physical therapy. After 3 one week trips to Carlsbad for specific Spinal Cord therapy we decided to move to Carlsbad and have loved living near the beach in a very comfortable climate! Erica has thrived in the San Diego area - participating in over 18 different sports, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa, ocean jet ski racing, and now wheelchair dancing. See her profile at http://www.HelpEricaWalk.com Also see the trailer to Erica's climb at http://ThroughTheRoofMovie.com
Of all the places in the United States we believe that the San Diego county coastal areas are the most wonderful places to live. Although we sell throughout the county we specialize in the coastal areas of Carlsbad, Leucadia, and Encinatis.
How We Serve You
Finding your dream home or selling your home has become a legal challenge. As a buyer you want to know everything about the property you are purchasing. As a seller you want the buyer to make an informed decision with all the available disclosures and reports necessary.
Carol is a tremendous Realtor who specializes in helping buyers find the right home for their lifestyle and budget. Carol has a phenomenal grasp of the homes that are available and the features of each home. Carol will show you as many homes as you need to view to make a comfortable decision. With Carol's skill in showing homes, your search will become very refined so that you do not make a career out of looking at homes for sale!
Steve handles the writing of the offer, the negotiations, and collecting and reviewing with you all the disclosures and reports that are necessary and important for your home buying decision. Steve has the skill and knowledge from years of experience as both a Realtor and Financial Planner to make sure that you know what you are buying.
As a Seller you want Steve on your side to make sure that every disclosure, report, and inspection is being done and made available for your buyer. 98% of all lawsuits in Real Estate are from dissatisfied buyers - people who did not have all the facts they needed to make an intelligent decision in their purchase. Steve makes sure that the people who buy your home are fully aware of all the facts about your home.
Marketing your home For Sale is also Steve's responsibility. From posting your home For Sale on many websites, to your home's own website, to quality flyers at your home for drive-by home hunters to take with them - we do it right. Over 80% of buyers look to the internet first - and we do a complete write up so that the buyer and the agents can get a total picture of your home and all the features.
Our fees are the same as most Realtors but our service is unsurpassed!
What Others Say about Us
Hi Steve, WOW!!!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!! I HOPE I GET THE OPPORTUNITY OF WORKING WITH YOU AGAIN IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. Cindy Ellis - Realtor
“As past real estate agents, we have dealt with a lot of agents over the years. Steve is absolutely the best we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He has the highest ethical standards, is very engaging, tolerant and patient. We would give him a six out of five rating on our recent purchase as he went above and beyond normal expectations!” Dollie & Roy Circle
Steve Davis came into my office one day approx. 17 years ago and we were able to help him with his family's needs. Little did I realize at that time he was going to help me down the road with some real estate challenges. The best thing that came from that first meeting was a friendship and trust I have for Steve that is unfortunately becoming hard to find anymore. He is very knowledgeable of what he does and one I trust without question with any real estate issues. I own an insurance agency and I am very impressed with the "liking" my staff has taken with Steve. Even if you just need a question answered Steve is always there.
Sincerely John B. Metz
Steve worries about the details so you don't have to. A Realtor who always puts the client first. Steve has a particularly strong understanding of the manufactured home industry. He keeps himself updated with local code requirements and brings a background as a builder/developer to the Real Estate transaction experience. We would hire him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as either a listing or buyer's agent. Jon Tronowsky
I've known Steve as a neighbor, agent and friend for over ten years. During that time, Steve has helped me buy and sell and refinance numerous properties, always with a high degree of competence, professionalism and integrity. I trust Steve completely and recommend him highly. Loren Stacy
Steve Davis helped me purchase this great property to use as a rental/investment property. His knowledge of the area and what I was looking for was great. We were able to find a great property, get a great price on it and it has been rented out successfully since then. I am very pleased with the service that Steve provided and I won't hesitate to use him again. Ryan D
