Steve is a consummate professional and brings great knowledge, insight, expertise and strong customer service and communication skills to his clients! You won't regret hiring The Larets!
We listed our home with him last November. We lived in our home for almost 40 years. We had mixed emotions about selling and he calmed our fears. He was so compassionate, but very knowledgeable about what we needed to do. We had one person look at our home and he was the one who purchased it. There were some bumps in the road, but Steve said I got this and it is my job to make this happen! We made settlement in February and couldn't be happier! You won't be sorry to list with him...he is the consummate professional!
Awesome service, trusted advice, honest feedback and a great overall experience.
We’ve been renters, homeowners, and investors in the real estate market. The Laret Home Group is absolutely the best team to work with. They are the most knowledgeable, caring, and ethical team we’ve ever worked with! From the first minute of contact, Steve, Stephanie and Ken have been amazing to work with. They listened to every single detail of our wish list and promptly found us a dream property within our budget. We can’t thank them enough for working so diligently for our family! Sincerely, The Mendenhall Family
I would (and do) recommend Steve and Stephanie to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate. Highlights: - Immediate response to phone calls, texts, emails - Knowledge of home value markets/trends - Quality industry contacts (mortgage broker, inspection professionals, contractors, etc.) - Recommendations without expectations/pressure My husband and I worked with The Laret Home Group this summer to buy our first home in the West Chester area, and we couldn’t recommend them more. With limited inventory, it was struggle finding homes that met our search criteria, let alone getting a showing scheduled in time. Stephanie and Steve ensured that we would never be too late for a house by always answering our calls and scheduling showings at OUR earliest convenience. Often times we were the first to see a house. Steve advised us on real market values and cautioned us on overpriced properties, not bidding more than what properties were worth, and respecting our cost ceilings. Steve was very well informed of not only the real estate market, but of general housing issues and costs, and and was able to spot potential concerns and answered all our questions during showings. He even arranged for a contractor to go on two showings with us! Overpriced Home: During negotiations, Steve was our true advocate and went to bat for us. He advised and supported our decision to walk away from a home after several back and forth counter offers as owners were asking more than what we believed the home was worth. This was one of the first houses that we looked at during our 3+ month search and I felt very comfortable in knowing that our agent, Steve, was working with us and not towards an accepted offer. Out-of-Our Budget Home: As inventories were low, Steve was able to show us houses that were just out of our price range and, for one property, relay our top number to the seller’s agent. Steve appropriately cautioned us on this potential long-shot and ultimately when a higher offer was received we were prepared to walk away. The Right Home: When the right house finally came along, Steve was very realistic on what needed to be done to get the house, and we were under contract in less than 24 hours. Steve and Stephanie advised us of what needed to be addressed following home inspection. It was during escrow that The Laret Home Group’s professionalism and negotiation skills truly shined, ensuring everything was addressed and contract terms were met. The Laret Home Group offers buyers and sellers several preferred vendors they have personally worked with and vouch for, and we were not disappointed. We settled and were in our new home 38 days after our offer was accepted. The icing on the cake was a thoughtful closing gift for not only us, but our 1 year old daughter. The Laret Home Group is the only real estate group we would recommend, and the only realtors we would ever work with. Their professionalism and negotiation skills, coupled with personalized attention and easy to get along with personality make The Laret Home Group a no-brainer for all your real estate needs.

Steve Laret, as far as I am concerned, is the best negotiator in the business. He also jumps through hoops to make sure that his client is the first to see a home, which is SO important in this competitive market. In my experience he truly CARES about his clients! It is such a breath of fresh air to know an agent who does what is best for our (the client) bottom line!
..who left much to be desired. Happening upon Kelly at an open house, we immediately knew that we wanted to work with Steve’s group. And our gut instincts were right! Kelly is incredibly charismatic, kind, and communicative. And Steve has the kind of no-BS, transparent, go-getter attitude that buyers and sellers need in a hot market. Through The Laret Home Group, we’ve been communicated with so quickly and openly throughout our search. They’ve helped us to find THE home that truly feels like home for us, as well as steadily and swiftly navigate the waters of first-time home buying. Through Steve’s group, we’ve also been referred to an awesome lender and inspector, making the once seemingly Herculean task of buying a house much easier. We thank you so much Kelly and Steve! We couldn’t recommend The Laret Home Group enough!
Buying my new home with them at the helm was a wonderful and fun experience. I not only have a great real estate agent; I have a great friend in Steve Laret!
