United States Golf Association & The 2015 US Open
"Steve's support leading up to the 2015 U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay was extremely helpful to our organization. He was always eager to assist and provide options for folks attending, working, participating in, or volunteering for the championship." - United States Golf Association
Exceeded Expectations and Clear Communications
Steve exceeded our expectations throughout the negotiation process to buy our new home in Lakewood and sell our old home in University Place. We were impressed with the strong relationships he had developed with other agents which had a direct positive impact on both transactions. Throughout both deals, Steve clearly communicated with us and answered any and all questions. We would recommend using Steve as your real estate agent if you want a professional who works hard for you.

Moved Back to The Northwest From Out of the Country
"Steve helped us house hunt in the middle of the Covid Pandemic. He was professional & knowledgeable and had a good feel each step of the way. He helped us make a good offer and get our offer accepted against other competing offers. He helped guide us through two inspections, one that we withdrew an offer on because the siding needed to be replace ($35k+ project). We were happy to have avoided that disaster and then to get the home we ended up with. It was affordable, spacious, well-maintained and he knew the Seller's Agent as well.
His connections with mortgage brokers and contractors have come in handy as well.
My wife is not a US citizen, and he was patient as we both learned the housing market and how everything would go.
I highly recommend Steve Sloboda and would happily send anyone buying or selling in this area his way"
- The Schutt Family
"We have dealt with Steve on several previous transactions. His knowledge and expertise are unrivaled. He is responsive, extremely professional, and makes you feel like you are his priority client at all times.
Steve has been so patient with us as we have been undecided many times. He took the time to listen and understand what exactly we wanted, and delivered just that. I can't say enough good things about how Steve is the perfect fit for this profession.
Steve and his co-workers at Windermere Chambers Bay are classy and professional. It is seen through their in person interactions, as well as advertising and communications. All interactions with Windermere Chambers Bay were professional, speedy, and thorough.
This has been a smooth, stress-free transaction from beginning to end thanks to the knowledge and guidance of Steve Sloboda. We couldn't be more pleased."

Moved From Seattle to Tacoma
We loved working with Steve! He has great knowledge (both of Tacoma and houses in general) that we really trusted and valued. He was supportive and available on short notice during our search. When we found our dream home, he helped us craft an offer that beat five others, and made the inspections, negotiations and closing a breeze.
We seriously looked forward to the time we spent house-hunting with him and are so grateful for everything he did to get us into our home!
- Chase & Julia
Working With Steve Was A Dream!
Working with Steve was a dream. We started our home buying process in an uncertain market and without much knowledge of the nuances of a real estate purchase. Not only was Steve easy to get in touch with, he was also great at explaining the details and steps along the way. He knew all the important players in the market, and the suggestions and recommendations were spot on. In a multiple offer scenario he knew the perfect strategy to win the offer and land the perfect house for our family. In a challenging market it is great to have an expert like Steve on your team - He will make sure you have the absolute best experience possible and understand every step of the process. I can't imagine doing a real estate transaction without his guidance. If you need anything real-estate-related, call Steve Sloboda!

Steve's Knowledge Of The Area Is Unparalleled!
I worked with Steve on the purchase of my first home in 2018 after receiving a glowing recommendation from close friends. He exceeded even those expectations, so we did not hesitate to reach out to him this year when we began thinking about selling our home and finding a new one for our growing family. Steve's knowledge of the area is unparalleled, and he treats clients with a combination of professionalism and genuine care that is hard to find in any industry but especially in a crazy real estate market. It's clear he is well regarded in the community (by fellow brokers, lenders) and his reputation precedes him, for good reason. His relationships throughout the community and expertise set you up for success as both a seller and buyer. Steve made a somewhat hectic, fast-changing period of our life relatively easy and actually pretty fun.

Four Transactions and Counting...
Experience - Knowledge - Professionalism.
Steve hit a home run on all of these things. We've had Steve handle four property transactions for us in the last 12 months . Two investment properties, the sale of our primary home in May, and our new primary home in August. From offers to negotiations to closing, Steve handled all aspects with OUR best interest in mind. It wasn’t about his commission, it was about finding the right house for our family and maximizing our options.
I recommend Steve Sloboda to all my friends and family. In fact, our parents recently listed and successfully sold their home with Steve as well.

Excited New Homebuyers
What else can I say but "Thank You!" You came to us highly recommended but little did we know we were getting the most professional, hardworking, thoughtful, smart, and go-getter agent in Greater Tacoma. From start to finish you respected and valued us and our desires. When other agents would have rolled their eyes, you allowed us to "change the plan" many times and you never wrote us off. Without a doubt, you pulled off a miracle with our purchase and we couldn't have done it without you! - Holly Powers
Local Sports Team Executive Raves About Multiple Successful Transactions
Steve is the absolute best! This is our third time using him and wouldn't even think of using anyone else. He had our house sold in 5 days and that was over a holiday weekend! I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
- Corey B.
Sold Quick w/ Multiple Offers
Steve was not only very professional, but very friendly and very approachable. Since we live outside the US (just outside London, England) there was a lot of correspondence through email and the phone ~ Steve was very prompt with his answers and very helpful with emailing us documents for our review. Yes, we would definitely recommend Steve as an agent and, when we return to the US, if we move back to Washington, Steve will be the first person we contact when it comes time to find a new home. -Sharon Firn
Sold Their Long Time Family Residence and Downsized to a Lovely Condo
"He is the best broker in the area. He went out of his way to help us buy our downsized condo and sell our long time family home.
I would recommend Steve Sloboda to handle any real estate transactions.
We've had a long and good relationship with Steve. We consider him now to be a good friend as well."

Expert Advice & Service
We were very pleased with Steve as our agent in purchasing our new residence. He provided expert advice and services throughout the entire process including last minute checking to see that our sellers had lived up to their obligations and timing for us to move in. He also followed up the following day to be certain that our receiving the house went smoothly. We can't say enough about the professionalism that Steve provided us during our purchase process. We are now going to use him in the sale of our former home. We are certain he has all the necessary knowledge and skills to bring us a good sale.

Steve Sloboda is an excellent and experienced REALTOR. He goes above and beyond to help the client in any way possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wishes to sell or purchase a house. - Dr. Carl Agnello
Bought a Wonderful Home in Steilacoom, WA
We are very happy with the services we received from Steve Sloboda and we highly recommend him. When we decided we were going to purchase a new house we wanted to act quickly and Steve was really responsive. Steve was able to make everything go smoothly with our purchase. He had to have some awkward conversations with the sellers and was able to do that without any problems. Steve was always very open with us about what was going on with the process and what to expect next. He also helped us with the paperwork to help us rent our house. My husband and I refer all of our friends to Steve. - Michelle Pihlman
First Time Homebuyers
We had a great experience with Steve! We just bought our first home and we were a bit new to the whole house searching/shopping experience. Steve was not only tremendously patient with us, but he took more of an educational approach than a salesman approach. He took the time to inform us about the different neighborhoods (including history, style of houses in that neighborhood, etc.). Also, he made us aware of shortcomings in homes that we would have otherwise missed. An attribute that we greatly appreciated. Lastly, Steve was helpful through the end of the transaction and beyond. He helped negotiate not only the sale price, but also the repair work necessary after the home inspection, and has provided us novice homeowners with some useful tips about transitioning from renters to owners. - Eric Bean, Ph.D
Bought & Sold in a Tough Market
Steve was always ahead of us from start to finish as we bought a new house and sold another. In todays ever changing world (especially in the real estate field) we certainly appreciated Steve's knowledge of current practices and closing documents to expect. He was also very good at helping us to negotiate best pricing (on both ends) while taking into account our own needs. We knew when we were in a position of strength and when we weren't. The process of buying a new home can be very complicated & stressful but we put our faith and trust in Steve and never regretted it. It was almost like he became part of our family during this time frame and we enjoyed that because he is a very genuine individual. I recommend Steve to anyone about to embark on selling and/or buying a new property. - Wally Endicott
Bought & Sold in University Place Near Chambers Bay
I cannot even begin to describe how fantastic a real estate agent and excellent person Steve Sloboda is. His stellar and most incredible candor and perseverance is the reason we successfully executed both a purchasing and selling transaction with him. Steve displayed nothing but poise and diligence with superior professionalism all throughout our four years of working with him. He always fought hard for us and never turned away when faced with the monotony and trivial deterrents manifested by the banks and mortgage company. His follow-up was impeccable and always timely and he never allowed any one of my million texts, voicemails or emails go without prompt response. Steve is truly an esteemed individual both in real estate and in his community. It has been a great pleasure to work with him and call him a friend in the end. Anyone pursuing buying or selling a home would be so fortunate to have Steve Sloboda in their court!
