    Steve was great to work with, in this competitive sellers market he made it quick and easy to find a house and get an accepted offer so I could be ready to move.

    Thanks for the great review. It is madness out there, and will be for quite some time. The seller's market will be strong for a long time to come, but I can help people navigate the rough waters ahead. I hope the home treats you well, and I will see you soon.

    Steve did an awesome job helping us sell our house and buy our new house. He's very informative and reliable. He helped make both selling and buying a low stress positive experience.

    Thanks for the great review Linda! It is always more stressful when trying to sell a home and buy, especially when you want to line everything up perfectly. I am glad we were able to smooth both ends out to make it a "best case" scenario when transitioning from one home to the next. I will be here when you need to upgrade to your next home too ¿¿

    We recently bought a house through Steve and had a great experience. He is extremely detail oriented, very knowledgeable, and super thorough. He explained everything in great detail, which was important and impressive to us. He never pressured us or made us feel like we needed to make a decision on a property, and we looked at about 40-50! His recommendations were top notch. We will refer family and friends to Steve, and if needed, will do business with him again in the future!
    Response from Steven
    10/21/20
    Thank you for the kind words. I personally looked at around 50 before I bought my own home back in 2006/2007. I don't think my Realtor was very happy at the time. However, you have to be happy with your purchase, so you do what it takes. I hope the home treats you well, and let me know if you need any help in the future. Thanks again ¿¿

    As first time buyers we weren?t very familiar with the process of purchasing a home but with his outstanding knowledge and professionalism the process was very simple and fast. We are very grateful to have worked with Steven. We could tell he put so much effort into helping us find our home and he?s very invested in what he does. I cannot recommend him enough

    Daniel gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    I was a first time home buyer, and as such, was very inexperienced, indecisive and quite picky. So picky that over a year went by. And in all that time Steven never stopped. Was vigilant in keeping me updated with every new property in my search range and preferences. A very well spoken and knowledgeable guy in the real estate arena, but others as well. But most of all, was patient with me and my first time buyer inexperience and gitters. Made me feel comfortable. One other thing I thought note worthy was that after all was said and done there was follow up and a small house warming gift. Tanks Red Beard

    Thanks for the review Daniel! As I have mentioned before, I looked at 50 houses over a decade ago before purchasing my home. Now, I prefer people to not having to see that many, but I do what it takes to get the job done in an efficient and smooth manner. ~ Steven Vertz - Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, "RedBeard," The Largest Beard in Real Estate

    Uriah gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    It was a pleasure working with Mr. Vertz. He did a great job of answering any questions we had. He was diligent on following up with, and seeking out potential buyers, which was apparent with the quick sale of our home. He wasn't just intersted in 'dumping the house' for a sale, instead, he worked to get us a reasonable offer. Mr. Vertz's work did not end at the offer, it continued well into the sale.

    Red Beard is a great realtor!!! When I decided to look into opening a new music venue in Appleton, he was there to answer all of my questions about building vs. leasing, zoning and more. He reached out to other realtors regarding their property for me and his knowledge and professionalism is second to none!! Red Beard is a strong and active supporter of the local music scene and was kind enough to sponsorship my concert called SAVAGEFEST. Thank you Steve. We have a great future ahead of us!!

    Thanks for the review Mila! It always helps to be personable. Communication and making sure clients understand the processes is very important. It also helps when all your clients like you as a person too.

    Steve was readily available for any questions we had. He made us feel comfortable with the process from our first meeting. He helped us find a home we loved in the price range we had stated, and answered any follow-up questions and addressed concerns we had once the sale was completed. Thanks, Steve

    Thank you Cameron! I feel it is important to stay in touch with clients well after the sale.

    Aaron gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    The beard of knowledge is an essential tool in today's market! We were probably one of Steve's more difficult clients. Our needs and desires were very specific, and next to impossible to find, especially given the low inventory, and highly desired school district. Steve was well aware of this, and helped us the whole way through. From financing options, all the way through closing, he made sure we had our bases covered, and we would be ready to address any issue instantly. Swiftness and reliability were paramount. Homes in our desired area were and still are selling within days, sometimes the same day! When "the one" finally came up, Steve got us in to see it before anyone else, and the rest is history. We now have are dream home, and honestly, it exceeds our expectations! We couldn't be happier! His speed, resources, knowledge, professionalism, reliability, and dedication gave us the edge we needed in that very difficult market! I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. There is excellence within "The Miracle Beard".

    Due to a job change, relocation became necessary and needed to happen super fast. I went online and reached out to a number of different agents.

    Sarah gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    We have been living in our house for a month now and I have to say that I love my house so much. Steve was exceptionally helpful in making a dream of mine into a reality. We started by wanting a fixer upper, that was in a lower price range. Under 100K with a large garage. We found one in our range and it was already remodeled, and has a large garage! I would count that as success! Steve is a very patient realtor that answered all of my first time homeowner questions and really helped us figure out what we were looking for. He showed us a lot of properties in a 3 month time span and was always willing to find the time to show us those or fill out offers. The houses were selling at an incredibly fast pace when we were looking. Steve was excellent at helping us get those offers in quickly, as well as making sure we were comfortable with the process. The day I saw the house on the internet I told Steve we wanted to look at it. He made an appointment right away so we could get in there and see it. It didn't even have a sign in the yard yet. We made an offer the next day and it was accepted in hours! He helped us understand the market and provided us with all the research and analyses he does and helped us write a reasonable offer that got us a house. I couldn't imaging living anywhere else. It has everything we were looking for. Thanks Steve!

    Hi Sarah. Thanks for the review! I realize my clients are busy and knowing that they took the time to voice their opinion and give me such high accolades validates every effort I make to go the extra mile. I am happy that my expertise was able to serve you well :-) It has been a crazy market out there. It is very important for buyers to get that preapproval letter right away, so they are ready to put in a serious offer when the time comes!

    Hey Jason, thank you for your review. I am always exploring new ways to benefit my clients through the use of the latest technology. We sometimes have to think outside the box, and make sure that we are trying to leverage various online sources (especially social media) to the best of our abilities. Putting a home on the MLS and putting a yard sign out front alone doesn't usually cut it. Getting a home in front of thousands ASAP is the best chance for selling success!

    Thanks for the review Ashley! I do my best to make sure people see me as their friend and real estate advisor, consultant, teacher, etc. I will never be that pushy salesman (I don't like pushy people either). :-) Communication is always important, so I am available virtually at any time.

    Steven conducts himself very professionally but he also realizes the stress that comes with buying and selling real estate and has a way of putting all involved at ease.

    Hey Sarah, thanks for your review! I can always see my client's stress and worries disappear after having a one on one consultation with me. I make sure that they do not leave confused. Home buyers and home sellers can feel overwhelmed with all the "what ifs" that are possible. I give them multiple scenarios so they don't run into anything that is too shocking!

    Response from Steven
    10/25/18
    Thank you for your kind words Krista, and I was happy to help you two find your new home. It is important to let a buyer see some homes to see what may fit them the best. I am not the one that has to live in it, so I would have no business pressuring someone to buy something that wasn't right for them. It makes it easier for a client when I adjust my schedule for them, and I am happy to do so! Thanks again! ~ Steven "RedBeard" Vertz - Largest Beard in Real Estate

    As a first time home seller, Steve's advice was invaluable. And despite knowing that I might try FSBO prior to listing with him, he still went out of his way to help me out. He truly is the realtor that teaches. Great guy, awesome beard. If you are looking to sell or buy, call Steve.

    Thanks for the review Thomas! I recognize people are busy and I am beyond thankful for their willingness to spend time giving me feedback. I wish you luck with all your future projects, and let me know when I can be of assistance. Most people run into a handful of people each year that mention buying or selling a home. Make sure to send them my way! Thanks again! ~ Steven "RedBeard" Vertz - Largest Beard in Real Estate

    Donald gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    I was retired just waiting for the wife to retire too so we could move down south. Redbeard made sure that everything went as smooth as possible with the showings, offer, home inspection, and title company stuff. I know I called him upset a couple times wondering why all these buyers wouldn't buy my home. He came over and calmly talked to me about what we could do to make sure we would sell faster. It was the same stuff he talked about before listing the home, so I guess we should have just done everything then. I was happy when he was able to sell the house right after we changed a couple things he talked about. If you plan on buying or selling a home in the Fox Valley area, I highly recommend Redbeard. Thanks Steven!
    Response from Steven
    10/29/18
    Thanks for the review Donald! I always tell my clients that I may say some things that they may not want to hear, but I would be doing everyone a disservice if I wasn't upfront and honest about a home. I was very happy when we came to the agreement about a couple needed changes, and how I was able to sell your home immediately after :-) Thanks again, and enjoy all your warmer months down south! ~ Steven Vertz - Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, Largest Beard in Real Estate

    Sue gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steven did a great job selling our home! We wanted to sell so we could move down to Florida after retiring. He came out to meet us at our home on several occasions to go over things. That was nice as we didn't want to run to Appleton each time we wanted to meet in person. He told us he could get us a bunch of showings, but it would take longer to sell if we didn't remove the carpet in the kitchen and dining room. There were a bunch of interested people that came through the door after we listed with him, but the home wasn't selling. A few of them also mentioned the carpeting in the kitchen. Steven once again came out and told us, "I know you like the carpet in your kitchen and dining rooms...but I am telling you right now that I can probably sell this home in 2 weeks or less if you just get rid of the carpet in the kitchen and dining area." He said most buyers that come to see the home will not like it at all. We decided that he was right, and we removed it. I believe it was about 3 or 4 days later, and we had an accepted offer! We had to move to Florida before closing, but Steven went to the house a few times to make sure everything was good so we didn't have to be in WI for anything. He even went and cleared the snow from the property a couple times for us! So I guess you could say that if you have a good Realtor like Steven, you will be taken care of. You might also want to pay attention to what your Realtor is trying to tell you! Thanks again Steven!!! Or should I say Redbeard :-)

    Hi Sue, thanks for the review! I prefer people to meet me at my office for some of the meetings, but will travel to a clients home, coffee shop, bar (but no signing at a bar :-) ), etc. if a client wishes. I was happy to take care of your property while you were out of the state. I do what I can to make sure every transaction goes as smooth as possible!

    Working with Steven has been an enjoyable experience. He made sure that we had an easy and smooth process looking for our first home in Northeast Wisconsin. When we entered the bidding and buying phase, he took care of explaining paperwork and setting up the home inspection. I would work with him again and highly recommend him. You won't regret it.

    Beard. Steven was very helpful, and informative throughout the whole process. He made everything smooth and comfortable and always kept his clients concerns and wants first. If I were able to but another house, I would definitely stay with Steven. Thanks again Steven. Beard.

    Sam gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steven helped my husband and I find our home in Oshkosh. He made the entire process easy and fun and helped reduce the stress of buying in a really competitive market. He was a great help in checking basements for damage and leaks - one of our biggest concerns. He tested electrical outlets for grounds and looked at things I would have overlooked as a first time buyer. He even crawled into a crawlspace to check everything out! Amazing realtor, and of course awesome beard!

    10/29/18
    Hello Sam, and thanks for the review! I enjoy breaking down the processes so clients enjoy the experience rather than stressing out about what might happen :-) Thanks for the beard compliment too! It does help buyers feel more comfortable in basements and crawl spaces when I go in first, because my beard plows through all the cobwebs first. Safety first...LOL!

    Leslie gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steve has helped a many of my friends with selling or buying a home, from what they have said with their experience he is very professional and listened to their needs and wants. I have not used Steve to sell or buy a home as of yet but, anytime I have had a question on real estate he has always been very knowledgeable and helpful. He goes above and beyond his role as a realtor.
    Response from Steven
    10/29/18
    Hey Leslie, thank you for the kind words! Don't worry, I am sure I will be helping you buy and/or sell a home sometime in the future :-) Many people come up to me in public and apologize saying that I probably don't like to talk about work all the time, but I always enjoy helping people. It doesn't feel like work when I am helping people or accomplishing great things on my many projects. Thank you again! ~ Steven Vertz - Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, Largest Beard in Real Estate

    Sarah gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steven was very easy to work with. From the pre-approval to closing day, he stayed on top of everything to make sure my first home-buying experience went as smoothly as possible. Anyone who's ever bought a house knows how important that is!! He also took time to explain the process to me, and has the knowledge and organization skills to get things done right. I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Steven, and I recommend him to anyone buying or selling.
    Response from Steven
    10/25/18
    Thanks for the review Sarah! It is important to meet all the deadlines to keep everything moving in the right direction. I am also on a never-ending journey to gain more knowledge in order to better myself, and like to share the best info with others. There's no point in keeping all the info in my head LOL! I am glad I was able to help you find a place you could call home! ~ Steven "RedBeard" Vertz - Largest Beard in Real Estate

    Michael gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steven Vertz has assisted us in buying our first house. He was attentive to our "must haves" for our first house and showed us to a variety of homes in our area. He always had time to talk when we had questions and was quick to be available when we wanted to look at a potential home. He genuinely helps you find the home that you're looking for.
    Response from Steven
    10/29/18
    Hey Michael, thanks for the review! Sometime buyers don't really know what they want until they see it. That is why I don't mind showing buyers some homes that may be close enough to what they describe as perfect! This market has also been pretty crazy, so many homes don't last very long. That makes it even more important to get that preapproval letter from a lender right away (as you did), so you can make a stronger offer on a home you like as soon as possible! Thanks again! ~ Steven Vertz - Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, Largest Beard in Real Estate

    Working with Steven has been a very enjoyable experience, I bought a home in Wisconsin while living in New York. As I was in another state, he made sure that everything from paperwork to the home inspection went smoothly during my absence. Would work with him again and highly recommend him. A++++

    Hi Michele, thank you for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your experience, and know it had to be a little stressful being far away from the transaction.

    Angie gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steve is honest, hardworking, and easy to work with. We had a lot of questions and he was patient in answering them. He's very knowledgeable! He looked over houses with us and pointed out things we wouldn't have thought about, which was useful being that we're first-time home buyers. We're grateful for all his hard work and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to someone looking to buy a home!

    Margaret gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    We loved working with Steven. Everything was fantastic. From start to finish. Our most recent purchase was an online auction and Steven was so helpful with that confusing process. We look forward to working with him again in the future!
    Response from Steven
    10/25/18
    Thanks for the review Maggie! The on-line auction foreclosures can definitely be tricky, especially when they are not through a local company. They can definitely be messy, and it doesn't help that there are different types either. I guess it is a good thing that I have been through most versions. I am glad that I was able to help you through the process and smooth things over. I was happy to be of service to you, and look forward to working with you two in the future! Thanks again! ~ Steven "RedBeard" Vertz - Largest Beard in Real Estate

    My husband and I just bought our first home with Steve's help. We didn't know anything about the process. Steve guided us through the entire way, from finding the right path to financing to finding the right home, and taught us so much about buying. We won't be moving for a long time; but if we ever do Steve will be the only realtor we use! Thank you so much! We love our home!"

    Cliff gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    Steven is very knowledgeable and knows how to leverage technology to help pinpoint the houses that meet your needs and wants. He wasn't pushy or tried rushing me to make a decision on purchasing. I felt very comfortable and confident when finally purchasing because I was informed and ready to purchase. If and when I have the need of another realtor I'll definitely be calling on Steven Vertz again, and I recommend him to anyone looking for these services.
    Response from Steven
    10/29/18
    Thank you Cliff! Understanding and utilizing the technology out there is a huge help in buying and selling homes. I never want anyone to feel pressured into making a decision. I am glad that you felt comfortable and confident after receiving all the information and scenarios I provided. Keep telling your friends, family, and even strangers that mention buying or selling a home.

    Cathy gave Steven 5 stars out of 5
    RedBeard is one of the most hardworking, knowledgeable Realtors I've meet. One thing I like the most is he's not your typical suite and tie kinda guy. He's down to earth, funny and not pushy like your typical salesman. He'll work to get the right house for you and then get the best price possible. He's not only helped me, but has helped many of my family and friends buy and sell their homes. Highly recommended!!
    Response from Steven
    10/25/18
    Thanks for the awesome review, Cathy! I don't like to wear suits very often, but they do make me look like I am in ZZ Top :-) I think it is important to make sure everyone is as close to stress free as possible, and what better way than to be a little funny! I don't like pushy salespeople either, so I make sure people see me more as a friend, consultant, teacher, etc. Make sure you keep telling your friends and family about me. Cheers! ~ Steven "RedBeard" Vertz - Largest Beard in Real Estate

    If it wasn't for him, we would have been overpaying for the house. His market analysis was spot on. He was available at all times and answered texts and phone calls right away! He went out of his way to meet us to go over paperwork! We highly recommend RedBeard!
    Response from Steven
    10/22/18
    Good morning Linda. Thanks for putting your trust in me. I like to provide my clients with a very thorough market analysis on a property that they wish to buy. This helps gauge what some other buyers might be willing to pay for the property, especially in this seller's market where a property often ends up in a bidding war! Timing becomes even more important when you are up against several offers. I was happy to help you win this bidding war (at your starting bid) with a carefully worded offer that sent you to the top of the list for the win. I look forward to working with you in the future too! :-)
