West Boylston MA Realtor – Steve Levine

When you’re thinking of buying or selling West Boylston MA real estate or relocating in or out of the West Boylston MA area, you’ll be faced with more choices than you might imagine. While trying to narrow down your choices, selected from among the many great West Boylston MA neighborhoods, you will often be faced with an overload of information, and opinions from just about everyone you meet. Who should you believe? It seems as though each person has a totally different opinion on West Boylston, MA, and is more than willing to share it with you, whether you want it or not! At times like this, facing what will be one of the largest financial decisions of your life, the person to turn to is a professional; someone who is able to leverage their experience in the West Boylston MA marketplace and can provide a truly non-biased overview and to advise you on every nuance that you should take into consideration.

Since beginning my real estate career nearly 30 years ago, I have had the privilege of working with literally thousands of buyers and sellers. Whether it was selling a gorgeous home in West Boylston MA on a 3 acre lot, a foreclosed $30k condo in Worcester MA, or any of the myriads of properties in between, I have always focused on a handful of core principles – creativity, honesty, respect, integrity, responsiveness, and attention to detail. Operating on those core principles have taken me through the good markets and bad, and with the most amazing clients one could ever ask for, I now look back on a career with pride in what I’ve done, and excitement at what is to come.

It always seems a bit odd listing one’s own accomplishments in a forum such as this. After all, it isn’t about me, it’s about you. I’m happy to do it, just so you have an idea who you are dealing with…but I’ll keep it ever so brief, as blowing my own horn isn’t really where I choose to spend my time.

Before moving to Central Massachusetts back in 1984 I grew up in New Jersey where I completed my undergraduate studies with a dual major in Microbiology and Psychology, and then my graduate degree in Molecular Biology. I came to Boston MA after graduate school to do oncology research at one of Boston’s most prestigious institutions. After a year of watching people die around me I heard an ad on the radio for a real estate class and have never looked back.

I’m not one to talk about awards, because honestly, I think most real estate awards are silly. Yes, I have won them all, including some that they came up with because a few professionals like me, far exceeded the levels of achievement they thought represented the “top” of the industry. I have been named the #1 RE/MAX Agent in New England many times, as well as one of the Top 100 agents in the world. I’ve been featured in Boston Magazine, the New York Times, and of course every local paper.

I was one of the early inductees into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, and recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award and Circle of Legends. With each came a lovely trophy, but between you and I, they all wound up in the trash. After all, I’m not a racecar driver, and don’t need a trophy room.

The awards I did keep were based not on real estate at all, but on helping others. I have devoted the better part of my adult life to reaching out and helping those in need, co-founding a charity for children, and sitting on the Board of Directors of two others. I’ve collected and donated nearly 50 tons of food, and worked in the trenches with those who struggle each day. Those awards I’ve kept, and will always treasure as a reminder of what it’s really all about. My goal in life is to not have a single person at my funeral talking about how many houses I have sold… but rather about how many people I have helped.

Wanting to share what I know with others in the real estate industry, I have taught many courses on creative real estate marketing, relocation, social media and customer service – both at the local and national level.

When I first started in the industry, in the mid-1980s, I set in place my “Mission Statement” which would guide me through the years. Ever so often, I update it to include even more aspirations, yet its core remains unchanged, and is just as valid today, so I have shared it with you below.

Whether your needs include information on the West Boylston MA real estate market, or homes and condominiums anywhere in the surrounding area, I am at your service and consider it a privilege to put my years of experience at your service.

Steve Levine Mission Statement

I will provide the best service possible for every client I represent.

To be the best realtor I can be, I am willing to give up a large portion of my personal life to ensure the highest level of service, integrity, and knowledge possible. To do this, I have committed to being reachable to all of my clients 24 hours a day – 365 days a year within 10 minutes or less. I do not do this because of my client’s expectations, but because of my commitment to serve them. I have been selling Massachusetts real estate since the 1980s, and begin and end each day with a commitment to always provide this high level of service at every opportunity.

I will never tell a client what they want to hear if it is not reality. I will never enter into a client relationship where I know what is expected of me cannot be done in good faith. I acknowledge that I may periodically lose business because I am truthful with my clients and sometimes my competitors will tell them what they want to hear to temporarily to get their business. In the long run, I know that my honesty will prevail.

I will always remember that to have a winning relationship with my clients, we must always have a mutual goal. I am neither slave – nor master, but a fellow member of a winning team. While I will bend over backwards day or night to help you meet your goals, I will not enter into a relationship with people who treat me with disrespect. I have worked too hard for too many years to put up with that.

I will never lose sight of the fact that my honesty, loyalty, understanding, work ethic and creativity are what make me so very different from the real estate masses. I will always promote the best interest of my clients, and I will always disclose to my clients all facts that might affect or influence their decisions. Many times, a client and I may disagree, but they will never be left wondering about a hidden agenda. Anything I have to say about a property is out in the open at all times. In the end, all decisions are the client’s to make, not mine, and I will always respect their decision.

I will freely give of my time and money to help my Massachusetts community and charities. I will never lose sight of how many people in the world are less fortunate than myself. I will also attempt to educate my fellow agents, and to raise the standard by which realtors are measured in the public eye.

I will never forget that I can easily go from being the top agent in New England to being a nobody, by losing sight of the fact that I owe to my clients everything that I am or might ever hope to be. They have placed me where I am today, at the pinnacle of my profession, and they can just as easily take it all away.

I respect your time, and value your business. I know you could go anywhere for your real estate needs, and appreciate having the opportunity to serve you the best way I can. My family completely owes its well being to your continued business, and my entire family is grateful for all you have made possible.
