The Outer Banks is a very unique market. We primarily consist of second homes and vacation rental properties. Any purchase requires research, careful analysis, consideration, and thought. My sales and rental experience give me an edge that most agents do not possess. When purchasing a vacation rental home variables like location, the number of bedrooms, and amenities greatly influence not only sales price, but rental potential. From your initial search to the moment you get the keys to your new home, I will be there, guiding you through the process. I can even help connect you with mortgage professionals to get the best rates, inspectors, contractors, attorney's, surveyors, EVERYTHING. I'll be available to assist when every step before and after closing.
As an area expert, I can help educate you on the different neighborhoods, rental potential, and other local community amenities that suit your lifestyle. Don't want to take my word for it? Below are reviews from buyers who have used me for their purchase.
Earnhardt - Kill Devil Hills
"Steven was great to work with! Always responsive and very flexible to our weird schedules! As first time homebuyers, he kept us on track and explained things to us in "layman terms" so that we felt comfortable. He also provided great referrals and kept the process moving quickly. He's an Outer Banks local born and raised so he definitely knows the area better than most! Thankful for his guidance throughout the process!"
Pettitt - Kill Devil Hills
"Having bought and sold numerous houses and dealt with a plethora of agents, Steven is by far the most helpful and knowledgeable of any agent we've worked with. He has the highest commitment level and work ethic of anyone in this business and will answer any question you have. Hands down, you can't go wrong with Steven representing you!"
Tricia - Corolla
"Steven has been a wonderful agent. He negotiated for us on 2 different houses, and we decided on the first one after all. He was very attentive and helpful beyond measure. We would recommend him to anyone looking for property in OBX, He was also very knowledgeable about different services we needed such as an electrician, plumber, HVAC, maintenance, flooring. You name it and Steven had contacts for us for all our needs. He is a hard worker, and we foresee a great future for him in real estate or anything else he puts his mind to. Thanks Steven!"
Rob S. - Duck
"Steven just assisted us in purchasing our first vacation home, and we could not be more pleased with our experience. Steven was proactive and patient in showing us the many available homes and helping us weigh the pros and cons of each. He is local to the Outer Banks and has prior experience managing rental properties, so he had great insight into the area as well as the rental home market and what will maximize the rental value of a home. Once we selected the property we wanted to pursue, Steven was with us every step of the negotiation and closing process, providing solid advice and coordinating all the inspections, etc. involved in the closing and transfer of ownership. He was in constant contact and very responsive to our many questions. We would not hesitate to work with him again, and give him the highest recommendation."
Dorothy B. - Kill Devil Hills
"Our family can't thank Steven enough for his assistance with selling our house we owned, and purchasing our new water front home, in Kill Devil Hills. His knowledge of the area and the real estate business and it's workings was astonishing for such a young man. Throughout the process he was patient, knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and very attentive to details. He made what could have been a very stressful situation one that was actually pleasant. He gave us the confidence to live our day to day lives while he handled most of the stressful legwork. I would highly recommend him to any one looking to list or purchase a home in the outer banks."
Kat M. - Corolla
"Steven made everything go smoothly. Always helpful, available, and willing to figure out options for any situation. I would definitely suggest using him for your next buy or sell!"
Bob B. - Corolla
Spoke to Steven Gross in his office June 2017. He promptly showed my family a vacant lot in Corolla that we were interested in building on. Prior to us leaving Corolla for the weekend, Steven recommended a builder that we could trust and we met up with him the next day. We purchased the lot within the month and the new construction will be finished at the end of April 2018 as promised. Steven has since updated me with photo's of the new construction and provided these photo's to the rental agency that we are using to manage this property. We were very impressed with Steven's "can-do" attitude.
Miller Family- Corolla
We worked with Steve for over 2 years trying to find our permanent residence in Corolla. Being from out of state, he was very helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and the housing markets. After not finding what we wanted Steven showed us some building lots and put us in touch with a few builders. We purchased a lot in Dec 2017 and break ground on our dream home in May 2018. Steven was very responsive and went the extra mile to make sure we were informed on new listings and negotiated an excellent deal on the lot.
Morgan Family - Corolla
"Steve was an awesome realtor to work with. He was knowledgeable and was always available to answer questions. He kept our best interest ahead of his own. We would highly recommend him to future clients and have no hesitation contacting him I’m the future should the need arise."
Eric B. - Kill Devil Hills
"First time home buyer. Words cannot describe how well Steven took care of myself and my family during the entire home buying process. As a first timer, I had plenty of questions and Steven was right there with prompt answers and explanations every time. He gave his honest opinion about the pros and cons of certain pieces of land to look at or stay away from. His expertise of the market and the local region stretched well past the title of "real estate professional". With Steven, I was always in control. I discussed certain items I was looking for in a property, and Steven zeroed in on pieces of property within my price range that also satisfied my wants and wishes. He was always patient throughout. Steven's knowledge of real estate, negotiation skills, and his refreshing, undeniable drive to serve clients will surely make him a "go to" real estate professional for years to come."
Cooke - Corolla 4x4
"Steven was very attentive and had a thorough knowledge of the OBX real estate market. He made the process for negotiating quick and was always available when I had questions. I would have no problem doing another transaction with Steven Gross."
Leandras S. - Corolla
"Great service!!! Quick to respond, available 7 days a week. Very helpful, always on time, easy to deal with. I can confidently recommend Steven, who was extremely polite, professional, sympathetic and just downright bloody brilliant in everything he did to help me buy a condo. I am extremely pleased with the service provided and will be recommending him and the company to friends and family."
Fennimore - Corolla
The home buying process was a long and laborious one for me, but Steven was there every step of the way. It took us almost two years of looking around Corolla but we finally did it! Throughout this time Steven was there and ready to look when I wanted to and was very flexible when it came to meeting with me. He worked around my crazy school teacher working three extra jobs schedule to show me many different houses. He even took me to a house he had previously sold so I could get ideas for my own! While the process itself was a tough one Steven had my back through it all. I know I couldn't have found my perfect first home without him and I can't thank him enough!
Bouker - Kill Devil Hills
"Steven was absolutely INCREDIBLE! I will never use anyone else as my realtor, and my fiance and I cannot thank him enough for helping us purchase our first home. He will never steer you wrong. He gave us guidance, was always so calm (even when we were freaking out about buying out first house, ha!), and always had our backs. He knows literally everything about the area and sincerely cares about his clients. Now that we are in our new home, we say to ourselves all of the time how thankful we are for Steven and if we ever sell/buy another house, Steven will be our go to! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Steven! "
Scarborough - Kill Devil Hills
Steven was an enormous help during my home buying experience! He knows the area well and has great relationships with vendors that made the process smooth and successful. He gave great advice, and he also respected my decisions and advocated for me - when I decided I wanted something, Steven went to bat for me! I truly felt like he treated me like family and his primary goal was to do what was best for me. I love my new house and I wouldn't hesitate to call Steven again when it's time to search for the next one!
