Hi, I’m Steve Roose! My kids and I are island residents. I am a real estate broker and owner of “Luxury Real Estate”, a local business on the island. I also own balboaisland.com, which has 20,000-50,000 visitors a month and a massive social media following. I love using the website to support other island businesses, share our love for the island and feature my client’s properties. We love the island lifestyle and the friendly residents. There is no other place we would love to live, work and play.
When it comes to selling your property for top-dollar… No other realtor can get your home the exposure that we can. Our 20,000 monthly visitor traffic is DOUBLE the amount of monthly traffic Zillow.com gets for Balboa Island. Not to mention, your home will blend in with all the other listings on zillow, where we will FEATURE it on balboaisland.com to stand out from every other listing. On top of that, due to our massive social media following on facebook and instagram, we can make your New Listing Video go viral, reaching thousands of people in a short amount of time. This is exactly what you need to increase demand for your property. More exposure results in a higher sales price every time. Due to our explosive and strategic marketing plan, we have the best chance of locating the buyer as well, which results in you saving thousands due to a discounted fee we promise.
When it comes to buying or investing on the island, we are local pros that are extremely knowledgeable of the intricate details of island real estate. We have deep pockets… meaning many pocket listings which are off-market and pre-market opportunities that the public is not aware of. In this fast paced market with low inventory, homes are getting snapped up quickly. We have more for you to choose from without the public competition.
What are you waiting for! Give me a call. You won’t regret it. Check out my sales history and client success stories.
