Founder & Lead Real Estate Specialist
With professional experience spanning over 30 years in the investment real estate sector, holding a degree in Real Estate and Finance from “The” Ohio State University, and experience in business brokerage, urban redevelopment, new media, advertising and marketing, Steve offers his clients a robust set of skills that only comes from education, time and commitment.
Unfortunately, here in the U.S., we do not teach our children to be good negotiators. Why not? Largely due to how our business models are structured; when you walk into the local grocery, or WalMart, or to buy your gas, everything has a price sticker. You pay that price, or walk out empty-handed.
One generation after another, we have lost the skills to negotiate.
Steve learned the basics of negotiating by accompanying his father to local pawn shops…the same places where his father learned from his grandfather many years prior.
Yep…if you want to learn about negotiating, visit a pawn shop and show a little interest in an item, then shake your head and walk towards the door. They will almost chase you down the street to close the deal as they cut their price. Nothing wrong with this. This is business, and business has to be flexible.
