To me, real estate is more than the obvious buying and selling of homes. It's about relationships.

My Philosophy

To me, real estate is about relationships. It’s about caring enough to discover what is truly important to a family, couple or individual, and using that knowledge to find the home that best embodies those particular values. I get a real sense of accomplishment from doing my homework, asking the right questions, and listening carefully to each client’s answers so that together, we can make the most well-informed, advantageous, and confident decisions.

My Principles

My principles are deeply rooted in a community that has given me so much. Above all else, I value persistence, enthusiasm, and integrity. These are principles that I infuse into my business practices not just through the transaction process, but in my role as a resource to clients long after they've moved in.

My Experience

Having negotiated everything from small contracts to million dollar deals, my portfolio speaks to the insights I’ve gained along the way. In addition to helping hundreds of families and individuals successfully buy or sell their Central Coast homes, I leverage my past experience on the Architectural Review Commission to give me an edge when faced with obscure details that can prolong or threaten a deal.

My Background

Prior to being a real estate broker, I worked for over 20 years in management, operations, and consulting. From earning my MBA and working in a large Atlanta medical center as the Director of Cardiopulmonary Services, to acting as the Senior Director of Business Development for a leading rehabilitation program in St. Louis – I’ve developed a broad skill set that helps me identify needs, find creative solutions, and negotiate complicated contracts.

…He listed the house on a Monday and had me in escrow by Friday with five offers at or above the asking price. He then provided strategic guidance through the negotiation process to truly yield a result that exceeded my goals. Steve's calm temperament, ability to listen to his clients, and superior customer service made what is typically a very stressful process so easy. Ermina Karim

I can't say enough. Steve went above and beyond what I would expect an agent to do for us. My husband and I have bought seven homes over the past 25 years so we are not new to this experience…His genuine enthusiasm and prompt response kept us motivated and uplifted through a bleak and grueling time in the housing market… Michelle Rizzi

…You just won't find a more committed person who puts his clients first. We got more than listing in 5 days and closed without a hitch. I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for top quality service and results. Erik Justesen

Easily the best, of many, many real estate agents we've worked with over 20 years. Steve Hopkins is perfect - he listens well, he thinks clearly, he advises gracefully and he works very, very hard. We loved how Steve quickly learned to see what we were looking for - then worked to find precisely that. Perhaps most impressive was his incredible work during escrow - really unmatched. Can't recommend Steve highly enough. David Buckingham
