After living in a few different areas of Australia & travelling overseas, Stephen feels very fortunate to call the Southern Highlands home. Amazing cafes, restaurants, scenery, lifestyle & possibilities - all within a short drive to Sydney CBD or the beautiful beach. It truly is an amazing place to live & Stephen is proud to work with clients buying & selling real estate here in the Southern Highlands.
Stephen was born & raised in Cowra, NSW, where he followed an enjoyable path with his love for physical fitness, enjoying long bike rides, lifting weights, golf & boxing - which lead him to MMA where he fought professionally for 3yrs, whilst also working in the AFP (Australian Federal Police) in Canberra. After winning an MMA title & training & travelling overseas Stephen’s life adventure lead him to running his own martial arts academy, helping adults & children enjoy sports including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which brought tremendous confidence & self-defence lessons to so many.
Stephen’s love for helping people & his people skills have lead him to a career he thought about since the age of 15 - real estate! He couldn't be more fortunate to work with the beautiful homes of the Southern Highlands, & truly believes some of the best properties in the world lie right here!
Stephen has a no-bull attitude & belief, providing clients with accurate advice & information about the market & their properties. Stephen doesn't spin the truth or facts to win business, he is honest & trust worthy & will be remembered by those who work with him as a reliable & honest agent. Stephen looks forward to every opportunity to speak with people interested in the real estate market here in the Highlands, looking to sell, buy or simply find out what's happening in the area.
When he isn’t helping people with property, Stephen enjoys a wonderful life with his wife & amazing son whilst making the most of the wonderful sights & sounds that can be found in the Highlands & its surrounds.

When we decided to sell our home, we were unsure how much it was worth & whether the market was strong for properties similar to ours. We wanted to move to Queensland but had a certain price we needed to sell for otherwise we would not be moving. We contacted Steve & had him around for an appraisal. Steve gave us his time & was happy to listen to what outcome we were hoping to achieve. He explained to us a strategy for achieving our goals & left us with realistic expectations on what can be achieved with a good strategy. After our second meeting with Steve we decided to place the property on the market in February. Once the campaign started we were impressed with Steve's communication & open & honest manner. He would contact us every second day to give us an update on the campaign & let us know about buyer feedback. After 3 weeks on the market we were really happy to have sold for $25,000 more then we wanted & the process was so smooth it felt surreal. Much better then several of our previous sales experiences. We now look forward to moving to Queensland & enjoying the next chapter of our life. Steve is a very savvy agent & anyone looking for a non pushy agent who really knows the details of a successful sale should really contact Steve
Steve made us feel very relaxed throughout the sale. We would recommend him to any of our friends who are thinking of selling
