Steve grew up in northern Indiana and graduated from Indiana University on a Sunday in 1974. Following his dream, he moved to Arizona three days later. His love of the desert lifestyle led him to become a licensed Realtor in 1975.
Joining the sales team of a new home builder in 1975 Steve excelled at sales from the very beginning and received an award for top salesperson his first month on the job. As his first boss said, “He listens, cares about people and works very diligently to see that they are informed, and treated with professional care. I wish I had 5 more like him.”
In 1985 Steve was hired as Vice President of Sales for Universal Homes and led his team to record sales his first year and was nominated as Sales Manager of the Year for the MAME awards.
Ultimately, his first love of working with buyers won out, and he returned to sales earning countless awards for production and providing outstanding customer service.
After years of owning and operating his own Brokerage, he chose to join Ventana Fine Properties in 2019.
Steve likes to travel, and has explored Europe, the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand.
A dog lover his entire life, he is currently raising Susie Q, a sweet golden retriever he has had since she was 7 weeks old.
