My Client Reviews
Steve was recommended to me by his broker and USAA. I was NOT disappointed! After getting the property ready to sell, I left the state, leaving all the details for Steve to take care of. All the items that needed to be taken care of prior to closing became his responsibility. He kept me informed through out the process and accomplished those items that needed to be taken care of. I have nothing but good things to say about Steve and would not hesitate to use his services again should I ever need them!

Steve did an outstanding job managing our property while we lived out of state and then listing and selling our property. He took care of all the details, making it the easiest sale we've had.
Steve was amazing to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the homes in our area and was quick to respond with any questions or concerns that we had. We really appreciate his hard work and the time he put in to help us find our new home.
I am happy with my new home and the final price we negotiated to. I was in the market for specific MUST HAVES for a home and they were all met and exceptionally exceeded. Steve also gave me incredible and useful resources to help in the 'First-Time Home Buyer Process.' Thanks Steve!
Steve was excellent to work with during the purchase of a second home for us! He is very knowledgeable of a wide variety of issues related to real estate transactions. He is also a great communicator. We never had a problem getting in touch with him which was extremely important as we were completing the real estate transaction from a distance. We highly recommend Steve and will use him again the next time we need to complete a real estate transaction.
Steve is a great person and prior military too. I recently worked with Steve to buy a house in the Anchorage area. As a first time home buyer, he was very helpful in guiding me through the entire process. He also knew when to step back and let me ponder the homes I was interested in. He never pressured me on making a decision which I greatly appreciated. Would/will use Steve's help again in the future and would recommend him to my own family for realty assistance.
Steve did an excellent job finding us the perfect home for being abroad. He was patient and willing to go above and beyond to send us video and information on each home. No matter how far the drive was he made it in an expedentious effort. I recommend Steve to anyone who wants to buy a home in Alaska.
We were looking to purchase on a very limited schedule with a slope work schedule. Steve was very accommodating and explained every step of the process. He made it extremely easy to do paperwork at a distance and went out of his way to accommodate our needs. When I was having issues with the mortgage company returning my phone calls, Steve also helped me to get in contact with them and was our advocate throughout the whole process.
Mr. Sharp was professional, patient, and helpful. He answered all of our questions and walked us through the process of buying our first home. Without him the task seamed daunting, he explained everything with the Veterans Affairs home loan and helped us go through the process taking his time and even on the weekend and off hours to ensure we had everything done with maintenance and paper work. Again I want to thank him and I will definitely be calling him again if I need to sell my home. Thank you James Friese

My Husband and I were searching for a home for weeks before we came upon this one we are in now. Steve was very quick to respond and we saw the house within 24 hours of it listing online and then were moved in by the next week. Steve was very helpful, kind , informative and professional. The whole process was very hassle free and easy. After we moved in to the house Steve continued to check in and make sure everything was going well. If an issue ever arises he is very prompt to respond and the problem is always resolved very quickly and efficiently. I have already recommended him to my neighbors moving this summer and will continue to recommend him
Moving to Anchorage from the lower 48 is stressful enough, put on top of it shopping for your first home. We were put in touch with Steve and Caldwell Banker via USAA Real Estate and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The level of professionalism and knowledge Steve gave to us far exceeded our expectations from the first time we met him. He listened to our needs and what we could afford and found listings to show us and was also happy to take us to listings we found and wanted to see. He showed us pros and cons of all the properties we looked at without any pushy salesman feel or urge to close a sale, a very big plus for us. He was quick to respond to any questions we had and was there for us anytime we wanted to meet up to look at homes or ask questions. We highly recommend Steve for all your real estate buying or selling.
Kudos to Steve for a job well done! Steve was listing agent for my property in AK, after I moved to the lower 48. He was great to work with providing professional service, excellent communications, regular status reports of recent sales in the area of my property, and guidance along the way. It was hard to be so far away from a property being sold, but knowing Steve was on top of everything was a great comfort. He even made frequent visits to the property (which was vacant) to check up on it. And when an offer was made with condition of a very short escrow, Steve again came through with making it all happen. I could not have been in better hands. Thank you, Steve!!
If you are looking for an amazing relator, Steve is your guy! He sets very clear expectations, knows his market, is dedicated and he always shows that he cares. When selling our home from the lower 48, Steve was helpful in finding experts to fulfill the buyers requests of repairs. He was a great liaison for us when we couldn't be there. We completely trusted that Steve was always doing what was in our best interest. Unlike other relators that we interviewed, he clearly showed his enthusiasm to have our business and to want to sell our home. We would use Steve again if we were to ever sell another home.
Steve was endlessly patient, friendly, and knowledgeable about the local market. He very quickly grasped what we were looking for in a home and made the whole house-hunting process go very smoothly.
I gave Steve a description of what I was looking for. I had a budget and a particular type of home and a amount of property I was looking for. Within a day he had several homes for me to look at. I was very picky on what I wanted since this was going to be our retirement home. We probably look at over 40 homes in a 60 day time period and even a second look at a few homes. There was never any pressure to hurry or change an offer that would not be in my best interest. When we would run into anything that would slow the closing with the home we eventually bought, Steve was on the problem to resolve it. Steve provided great references for the home inspections and followed up on the progress of anything that was associated with the offer, home inspection, conditions and closing. Steve was very knowledgeable and very good at explaining the whole home procedures from start to finish and what to expect and prepare for. The biggest attribute for me with Steve was his availability and fast response to setting up the showings. He never showed that he was frustrated or tired of me being so picky. I am not sure if I would of been so professional as he was. In the end I ended up with the home I was looking for with more property then I was looking for and most of all $40,000 less then what I set my budget at. In my past experiences in buying a home I never was able to purchase an upgrade of what I was looking for under budget. I was very happy with my experience with Steve and I would not hesitate to refer him as a agent to anyone.
I was completely new to moving to this area, and Steve did such an excellent job of making sure I was comfortable moving to such a new place. He is very personable, and he took the time out of his day to show me around the city while showing houses so I could get familiar with the roads. He is very knowledgeable about Anchorage and the surrounding areas and had plenty of tips for someone new to the area. He even offered to help me meet someone I was trying to buy a car from, which was completely above and beyond what was expected of him! He was patient with me as I took the time to see every home, and when I finally found exactly what I wanted he made sure every step of the process was explained well to a first-time home-buyer and he made sure we closed as soon as possible. Even sooner than expected! He is also prior military, and very professional. I would definitely recommend!
Steve was a consummate professional and guided us expertly through the home buying process from initial contact to closing. We are very grateful to have worked with him, especially as first-time buyers in a new area. He always made us feel comfortable, never pressured us, and catered his service to our needs and preferences. We never felt like he had his own agenda but instead felt that he was always focused on our interests and desires. Steve had an acute ability to listen and respond to what we were looking for, ultimately helping us to find the place that made us happiest. He assisted us in thinking of things we hadn't considered, knew when to offer opinions and advice at the right times, and gave us the space to discuss things privately when we wanted to. Steve was exactly what we were looking for in a realtor; someone to guide us through our shopping, be a sounding board when we had questions, and an ally for us as the buyer. Steve was the one who found the home we ultimately ended up buying and recommended we go see it. We couldn't have done it without him, and we couldn't be happier.
From the get-go Steve was very professional and extremely helpful in helping us find our house. We purchased our house in Alaska while still living in Alabama. Steve was invaluable in researching homes that fit our criteria and then updating us on all the pros and cons of every house that we looked at. Without his help I don't think we would have found and bought the house that we did. We actually talked to 3 different realtors before we found Steve and he was the most helpful and courteous realtor that we talked to. I would strongly suggest to anybody, especially somebody in the military, if you're looking for a realtor to go with Steve. His knowledge about VA loans and the local area was invaluable. Thanks again Steve for helping us find our forever Dream Home. You were great!
This was our first time buying a home and Mr Sharp was very helpful. Answered our million and one questions as we had very little idea as to how the entire process worked. When it came time to make an offer he worked hard to get us a good deal. When it came time for inspection he knew exactly what I should look for and what I should or shouldn't be worry about. In other words he knew what he was doing and was one step ahead of the game the whole time. And when you have a busy schedule like myself that makes it or breaks the deal. Thank you Major Sharp for all the help. We love our home and wouldn't have it without you. !
