Steve was amazing. Patient and professional with vast knowledge of the island and its real estate. Will most certainly be recommending him and Windermere to friends and family. Steve went above and beyond in coordinating various inspections to ensure that we were comfortable with the process and our purchase. He also delivered us a congratulatory case of wine with our names on it! Not to mention a sign for our drive. Class act all the way.

Steve's extensive knowledge of both real estate and Whidbey Island has served us well for two purchases (2009, 2014). Steve was the person who told us about the Homepath site, which is where we found our home. Steve has a clear passion for real estate and 'doing deals'. He took calls from us late at night and during his vacation. We will use Steve again.

Imagine...a real estate agent who actually looks out for your best interest rather than his/her interest. Steve Strehlau was an incredible gift in our search for property on Whidbey Island...he knows his territory better than any other agent. Not only is his knowledge about most properties exceptional but he also provided wise counsel regarding hidden problems with many that we looked at. Best yet, at negotiation time he really provided sound advice. It wasn't just a tactic of going in at the lowest price...but going in with the right price considering all factors. We worked with Steve for more than a year until the right property entered the market. In fact until we made an offer he continued to monitor the inventory and if anything that even approached our desired parcel entered the market he called right away and informed us about the new parcel. Deep knowledge of the inventory; deep knowledge of the disadvantages and advantages with various local property parcels; savvy negotiator; wise counsel who exercised common sense and a conservative approach to the entire purchase experience...these are the hallmarks of an exceptional realtor. You can be certain that if we ever list our property, Steve will have the listing. There is a reason he is an exceptional producer. He literally works 24/7 for his clients. Wow.

Steve did an excellent job in finding our new home on Whidbey Island! He really went out of his way to fully understand our real estates needs. Steve has a wealth of knowledge about real estate on the island. As my wife and I have busy schedules, Steve only showed us listings that matched our needs. When we eventually decided to purchase a home, Steve partnered with us during the entire transaction process. I highly recommend Steve as a real estate agent.

Gave advice on sale of our home in Sultan which was outside of his sale here on Whidbey. Also helped when our agreement date needed extending. Knowledge and care go a long way with us. Timely help for our family in a very difficult time. Thank you.
