"I had the distinct pleasure of working with Steve while purchasing a new home in Brunswick County NC and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the very start, his knowledge of the market and attention to detail stood out. He took the time to truly understand what I was looking for in a property and consistently provided options that matched my criteria perfectly. His communication was impeccable, always keeping me informed and guiding me through every step of the process. Not only did Read MoreRead Less
"Steve Adams answered an inquiry I made on Facebook as to the value of our home. My wife and I were considering selling and relocating. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate business and steered us through the entire process of preparing our property to show, listing it for sale, and getting us a good price. He stayed with us through the process of looking for another home. He would show us several houses in a day and never lost his good personality and humor. When we finally found Read MoreRead Less
"We approached Mr. Adams when we saw a house listed for sale - he ended up showing us multiple homes. He was so dedicated to our search - helpful, very knowledgeable, knew the local market extremely well, approachable, attentive to our every real estate need and request - this was just the best experience. Steve spent so much time helping us not only through the buying process but answered a host of questions about living in the area, finding vendors -- no question was left answered. We so appRead MoreRead Less
"Steve was amazing in helping with a fast sale of our home. Very easy to work with and always willing to go that extra mile! I give Steve my highest recommendation if you are buying or selling a home. I promise you will be happy with him as your realtor!"
"I have no experience with other Realtors at Coldwell Banker in NC except for Christina Campbell. So I can honestly state that any time I need Christina's expertise, she will be the one I call. Together we had a long journey to get to the end and she was beside me every step of the way."
"Christina goes above and beyond for her clients. She schedules showings and is always on time. We love her!!"
"Steve helped me search for a house for well over a year. This was during the crazy times of 2022-23. Together we must have walked through over 1,000 houses. He was always available and eager to show any house I wanted to see. He was helpful once I finally, finally found one. He’s very knowledgeable about all the neighborhoods and all the local builders. He’s a good guy and a hard worker.."
"Steve Adams is a honest realtor that will not lead you wrong. He is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure you are pleased. Very easy to work with. Keeps you updated on new listings and changes in previous listings. He is the best!!!"
"Steve was great! We were selling my Dad's house for his estate. Steve gave us great advice on what we needed to replace/repair before listing vs things that a new owner would prefer to make their own choices. We live a few hours away so Steve provided us with contacts for things such as lawn care while we were cleaning out the house & while it was listed. The property sold quickly with a deal that everyone was happy with! This was a very stress free transaction during a stressful time! Thanks StRead MoreRead Less
"Outstanding! From my very first phone call until after closing, Steve went above and beyond! He was transparent and honest, was great at keeping me informed, is clearly very experienced in real estate, knows so much about the area, and educated me on so many important things along the way. I truly felt like he had my back throughout the entire process to make sure he was doing right by me. He did an excellent job of making everything as easy and stress free as possible. Highly recommended!"
"Steve was awesome! He was always available for questions and even a spontaneous drive down on July 4th to view a home we ended up purchasing! Would highly recommend!"
"Buying a piece of property was as easy as 1,2,3 with Steve's help. He was always available to answer any of our questions."
"Christina was so nice and very professional. Being three hours away, she kept me informed on everything that I needed to know about the sale of my property. she did a great job, and was very attentive to the things that I needed. I highly recommend her!"

But enough of the rah-rah!

Working with a Realtor allows you complete access to the thousands of properties within our area that are for sale at any given time. Working with a Realtor means you share their network of lawyers, doctors, electricians, plumbers, builders, landscapers, surveyors, inspectors…there are a lot of components to a real estate transaction. A Realtor is specifically trained, licensed and provided with the ethical guidelines for providing you the most professional and effective representation for your real estate transaction.

The Steve Adams & Associates team members utilize their training and the tools we have available to guide you through the processes to buy or sell your home.

We LISTEN to you so we can understand what your interests are—what your concerns may be—to understand your vision of the future you want for you and your family.

We LEARN from each property that we show you a little more about how to focus our search even more effectively to finding the perfect home.

We RESPOND quickly, and honestly, to issues that may arise in the process of completing our service to you.

We take RESPONSIBILITY for our fiduciary and ethical duties to our clients in competently and confidently achieving the goals you have set

We MANAGE the process for you!

On a more practical basis—we can provide enormous amounts of information—and knowledge—based on our own experiences and the tools at our disposal. We love where we live and want to share our passion for the things that make living at the North Carolina coast a truly wonderful experience. 

One way that we do this is by utilizing the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that we subscribe to and that provides information on the properties that are available, and a history of those properties that add insight into the transaction. 

We have built our own system to allow us to identify important criteria for you—perhaps you want a garage—a fireplace—a single level home—a fenced backyard--granite countertops--whatever your interests or requirements may be…and search for those specific properties that meet those criteria.  Combined with our knowledge of where we live, we can offer guidance about those properties and how they may (or may not) match your criteria. You can conduct these “searches” – and change the criteria—from your own computer or smart phone!

We can share our understanding of investment objectives, of building modification possibilities, of zoning laws, of rental potential, of financing options…in short, we are your partner in the real estate transaction.

Let us help you achieve success in your real estate goal.

Buying a home?

First, let's clear up some MISCONCEPTIONS. You NEED REPRESENTATION in a real estate transaction.  You do not pay for an agent to represent you. 

A BUYER'S AGENT is paid a predetermined fee negotiated by the listing agent before a property is ever put on the market.  But a BUYER'S AGENT is legally bound, ethically bound, and as a fiduciary, is held accountable to protect the buyer's best interests. It costs you nothing for this.

 A LISTING AGENT, by law, represents the seller, who pays them. A BUILDERS AGENT represents the builder (seller) in a new home development. 

You NEED REPRESENTATION in a real estate transaction!

The PROCESS of buying a home can be complex. Selecting which home to buy will likely be the easiest part. Are you financing the mortgage? What type of mortgage? How long of a mortgage? What about the interest rate? Have you been PRE APPROVED

And about that house...Have you explored the neighborhood? Are you in a flood zone? Will a hurricane blow your house down? Which school district is the home in? Are the schools close by? Where is the closest grocery store...the nearest gas station...Is there a Walmart close by? Which internet service do you use...where are the restaurants...? 

This may be your FIRST time...but it isn't ours! We will guide you though all of this and make it as stress possible. If you have questions...we'll provide the answers...and if needed...the solutions.

 Let's get started!
