Being a broker goes beyond being able to coordinate and find real estate; it means finding buyers who love the seller's home as much as they do.


Having come to Stribling with over 20 years of high-end retail sales and management experience, Steven fully understands the principles of achieving customer satisfaction in the most discriminating markets. In 1985, early in his career of selling Mercedes-Benz automobiles, his sales abilities were highlighted in a feature story and portrait on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. The article focused on Steven's ability to identify his customers' particular needs and, in turn, gain their trust. It is these qualities that have awarded him tremendous customer loyalty and referrals throughout his successful career.

Steven's passion for architecture and design, his eye for quality and his personal experience in construction and renovation create a unique perspective when searching for the perfect home.

Steven believes that each customer should be treated as if they are his only customer. He works very hard to live up to that ideal. If you are considering buying or selling New York City residential real estate, you can be sure that Steven will make this often stressful, seemingly complicated experience as pleasurable and satisfying as possible.

My Approach

"I identify my clients' needs and then provide strong attention to detail. "


“We interviewed 5 other agents from different firms and chose to work Steven and Lee Ann. They were very, very good through this whole process…which was actually not an easy process. A lot could have gone wrong and our relationship could have become a problem, but it didn’t. Quite the contrary. It is rare that anyone likes their brokers as much or more at the end of a transaction than at the beginning—but with the two of them that was the case. We will recommend them to our friends without reservations.” –Anonymous Seller
