Broker & Co-Owner
Stephen is a 20 year veteran of the real estate industry having obtained his first license in Hoboken NJ back in 1997. Now Broker and Co-Owner of Re/Max Premier in Old City Philadelphia, he has taken a long and at times winding road to get here. Stephen obtained his Bachelor of Science from the nearby and top ranked Villanova University School of Business and later his Juris Doctorate from New York's Hofstra University School of Law where he was a member of the Lambda Alfa real estate society. He elected to pursue a career in real estate full-time when he joined the then innovative new internet-based brokerage Your Home Direct which was later purchased by London-based Foxtons. During his relatively brief stint with Foxtons Stephen was nevertheless highly productive personally listing and selling over 200 homes in a roughly two year span. Stephen was later promoted to management where he oversaw the creation of all print and online collateral both written and visual both for their magazine and cutting-edge website. During this time Stephen obtained his New Jersey broker's license and later broker's licenses in both New York and Pennsylvania to go along with his admission to the New York and New Jersey Bars. After Foxtons Stephen moved on to urban new condominium construction projects where he managed some of the most high-profile developments in the city of Philadelphia including The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, The Residences at Two Liberty Place and K. Hovnanian's The National at Old City where Re/Max Premier currently resides. Stephen's largest commercial transaction just closed having brokered the sale of the former National Products development site in Old City Philadelphia to Wilmington, DE based developers Buccini Pollin Group. Stephen's passion is real estate, whether it's finding the right site for a developer, repositioning a struggling condominium project, helping a seller find the right buyer for their home or finding a buyer the perfect home for them. Stephen's experience, educational background and real estate acumen truly sets him apart from the rest making him the ideal Realtor for his clients and even more importantly the ideal mentor for his agents.
