“Words cannot express how enjoyable the process was of selling and buying a home with the help of Westside Real Estate. If we ever decide to purchase a home again, we will definitely call them. The communication and service that we received demonstrated how professional, thorough and well respected they are in the community”

- Zeke and Rose

“Steven and the Westside team managed our rental property for years and were, quite simply, the best. Westside consistently delivered outstanding service, communication, and follow-through over the years and with multiple renters. When it came time to sell, Steven and team once again delivered with fantastic (and fast) results across the board. We’ve sold other properties with other services but Steven’s knowledge and experience with the market and his guidance and professionalism throughout the process were best in class. We highly recommend the Westside team for anyone looking to sell a property or anyone in need of fantastic property management!”

“We were very blessed to have selected Westside Real Estate Services, Steven Larson: Agent, Broker, Owner and Property Manager with the sale of our home in the Blossom Hill area of San Jose. We had received regular emails from Steven Larson for many, many years as he kept us appraised of the value of our home and the Real Estate Market in our area; the reports he provided were very professional, timely and reflected his heavy use of technology in support of his customers. I recommend contacting Steven Larson even if you are not selling your house but want to know the value of your home. Steven Larson is truly a ‘Real Estate Expert’ who got the results that we had hoped for in spite of a number of daunting challenges that he helped us overcome (with relative ease on our part). In October 2021, we had paid our November I, 2021 and February I , 2022 property taxes not realizing that we would sell our home and move to the East Coast where our grand-children and other family members beckoned us and where we found ourselves on Christmas Day leaving our home in the care of Steven and his team. We formally listed on January the I 0th with the escrow closing early on February the 9th and with remunerations in the bank on February 10th with our home having sold significantly above asking. Steven Larson was in constant contact with us and kept us appraised every step of the way; we recommend Steve Larson enthusiastically and we also extend our highest complements to his entire team.”

“What can I say about Westside Real Estate Services? First off Steve Larson and Ray Callison are the “Lewis and Martin” of real-estate. For you youngsters who don’t know who Lewis and Martin are look them up. But seriously, the are knowledgeable, friendly, tenacious and funny. My husband and I found the home of our dreams. The team from Westside Real Estate worked hard during a challenging market to sell our house. Getting a fair price in the time frame we needed to close on our dream house. Ray Callison worked open house after open house until he got not only one offer but 3 offers. He negotiated with prospective buyers to get us what we needed from the sale. Westside did not stop there. The office staff, Moriah Larson, was wonderful. She was so helpful with all of the paperwork and inspections needed to move things along. She also help us set up painters, handymen, landscapers and even cleaners to prepare for amazing photos to showcase our house. After seeing the photo’s we almost changed our minds about selling · One last layer to this already well oiled machine is the young Realtor Caleb Larson. He helped out with the open houses. It is clear to see he is learning from the best. Thank you all for making this stressful time so much more manageable, even fun. “

“Peter and I are still remembering what a wonder, outstanding Realtor Agent you were for us with the Johnson property. You are our STAR realtor and we will always be grateful.”

- Sheila and Peter C.

“I have known Steven Larson for over ten years. During that time, I have had the pleasure of working with him to successfully close three separate transactions. Each escrow came at a time a time in my career when I had many other demands on both my time and energy. Steven was a consummate professional and assisted me in every way possible. I appreciated his fund of knowledge, and the streamlined way he conducts his business. Whenever I had a question, Steven was very prompt in either replying or researching the point. As a professional in a service-oriented business, I recognize the difficulty inherent to meeting the needs of varying individuals. It is my experience that Steven is quite sensitive to the needs of his clients, and because of his dept and experience, he is able to satisfy even in the most difficult situations. I enthusiastically recommend Steven Larson for someone who is seeking the best. “

“How can we even begin to thank you for all that you did for us in the sale of our Los Gatos home? Before we even listed it, you gave us excellent advice and direction on preparing it for the market. After we listed, you made yourself available for our every question and handled the negotiations with our buyers with such professionalism and skill, getting us top price. Your assistance and handling of the many inspections and required work resulting from the inspections took a huge burden off us as we prepared for our move to a new home. We couldn’t have retained our sanity without your constant patience and level-headed attitude. Thank you again and please come see us in our new Aptos home.”

- Peg and Rick

“Cathy and l wanted to thank you for the excellent service you provided in helping us sell our home. We were pleased the home sold so quickly and we believe that we received a fair price. What you did that impressed me, Steven, is you did just what you said you were going to do. We appreciate that. I would call you a straight shooter which, to me, is a high compliment in business. It is no surprise to us that you have been successful. We will recommend you to people that may be in need of your services.”

- Tom and Cathy

“If you are in the process of choosing a qualified real estate agent, I would recommend Steven Larson. Steven was all we could hope for and more. His knowledge of the market and method of marketing the property helped us maximize the sales price for our property. Because we were also searching for a replacement property at the time that our property was being sold, we had many questions and concerns throughout the whole process. Steven was always very responsive whenever we contacted him. Most importantly, we got top dollar for our property and completed the transaction quickly. The home was sold after only two weeks on the market and escrow closed in three weeks. Again, I would not hesitate to recommend Steven for all your real estate needs.”

- Alan and Claudia

“Despite a “seller’s” market, we had difficulty selling our Cupertino home. As we needed a rapid sale, we decided to employ the help of Steven Larson, noting he had listed – and sold – several properties in our neighborhood. In his very reassuring manner, he convinced us that the problem was not our property, and swiftly relisted our house through the Multiple Listing Service. He suggested an asking price that would attract buyers, and after some intense interest over the initial week, we entertained and accepted a very clean offer. It is not a week and a half later, and we are under contract and signing escrow papers. Throughout the entire stressful selling experience, Mr. Larson provided expert guidance and reassurance. He clearly understood the intricacies of our local market and handled the contractual details smoothly and efficiently to assure a mutual beneficial closure. We highly recommend Mr. Larson. He has been prompt, professional and reassuring at each step and has minimized the difficulties along the way.”

- Thomas and Alison D., M.D.

“Steven sold my home in Cupertino after my husband had passed away and I was desperately trying to put the pieces of my life back together. When I called Steven to sell my house, he stepped in and helped me in more ways than he will ever know. He got an excellent price for the property, took over all the details and guided me through a very difficult time with ease. I cannot thank him enough for the support and comfort he gave me. Thank you again and God Bless You for the good that you do.”

- Judith

“Now that we are settled into our new home, I had to thank you again so very much for selling our home in Cupertino. We couldn’t have been more pleased with how you handled the sale. After living in my home for 28 years, it was difficult to leave, but with your help and knowledge of both the area and market, I was able to make the transition more easily than I expected. Thank you again, Steven, for all your help. Thank you also for your sense of humor through all the process!”

“I don’t write many reviews, but I am compelled to tell the Yelp world about our “trust real-estate expert’ as I think he calls himself – and he’s not kidding. Steven Larson delivers what he promises and does so with humor, compassion and a great human spirit. We have gotten to know Steven very well, with our first home purchase and sale through Steven over 30 years ago in Santa Clara to recently the sale of our home of 9 years here in Campbell. Steven is trustworthy and 100% a man of his word. He works tirelessly for his clients and is always forthright about details and he certainly knows this business – there is no doubt about that. I hope that anyone who has used Steven will come back to Yelp and let others know the results of your experience. We personally could not be happier with our Trusted Real Estate Expert – and friend – Steven Larson.”

“I’d like to send this letter to you in appreciate of your assistance in the sale of my mother’s house in Cupertino. After emptying the house of nearly six decades of memories and everything from furniture to old greeting cards, the sale was relatively easy. For that, you are owed tremendous thanks. Your knowledge, professionalism and efficiency took away all the stress. It was great top be able to trust in you and your experience. I truly appreciate the ease with which you guided me through each step, in forming and preparing me for what to expect, as we proceeded. My frequent times away and persistent questions were all treated with calm and positive feedback. I am very grateful for the smooth and successful transaction we have just completed. In closing, I shall have no problem recommending you in the future to anyone who should need your services. I am very satisfied, too, on a personal level that my parents can rest assured their hard work and care bore solid results. Thank you, again, Steven, for all you did. It is sincerely appreciated.”

Steven Larson was extremely professional in handling the appropriate work needed to sell our townhouse and locate a suitable home in the area was desired. Upon closer examination of the initial home inspection report, Steven had the insight to request a foundation inspection that turned up some fairly major work that was required to pass the inspection and code requirements. Thank you Steven to a job well done and we look forward to conducting business again in the future.

- Dave and Amy

“Steve … is very professional. I am very satisfied with him. I have done a lot of business with him. I highly recommend Steve; he is trustworthy and reliable. I have bought a house through them, they managed that house for 7 yeas and I sold my other house through them. I have only positive things to say about them. Steven Larson is a person I completely trust. He has managed transactions of multi-million dollars for me. His team is incredibly responsive. They are quick to take care of issues and always available to answer questions and for comments. They have managed the property for me while I was in India.”

“I came to learn about Westside after a friend recommended Steve Larson to help me with a real estate transaction (purchasing my home in Cambrian Park). My experience with Steve was positive, so I decided to continue with him (Westside) after I decided to hold my Mountain View townhouse as a rental property. I did not research or interview any other management companies. This is my first experience renting a property, and it has been about 18 months since I rented out my former home. The monthly fee is reasonable to me. I am satisfied with how they screen potential tenants, perform routine maintenance (preserve the value of my asset), and verify the way my tenant has maintained the property prior to renewing the lease. I avoided struggling through a learning curve because Westside handled all the details, especially the ones I hadn’t thought of. One way I gauge a referral is through the services and organizations they recommend. Since moving into my 60+ year old home, I’ve had need of a plumber, an electrician, a termite guy, a floor refinishing company, an exterminator and cleaning. The folks Steven’s team recommended were top notch. It is true that like attracts like.”
