I Am Your Full-Time:  

Trusted Advisor * Skilled Negotiator * Local Oak Park & River Forest Expert

People choose me because I am committed to serving their needs. My clients continually refer me to their family and friends because I brought them success in the first place!  My actions are timely. My advice is objective. My assistance is un-intimidating. My service is complete. My drive is to do nothing but help you!  

Are you looking to purchase in the Oak Park/River Forest area?  I am a 4th generation Oak Park/River Forester.  My wife, Julie, and I raise our own family here.  If you are relocating to this area I get it!!... There is more to your relocation than just finding a place to live.  Let me help you get your entire life started in OPRF. 

I take pride in being on top of this real estate market every day of the week. This is why buyers choose me. You don't need to worry about missing that perfect home because your agent was not familiar with local opportunities. And never be scared of contracts, negotiating, inspections, and critical transaction milestones with me at your side through every step. I have also successfully restored three vintage homes. When it comes to construction, I have lived through it all. Let my vast knowledge of local resources be your central connection for years to come.

Are you selling your Oak Park/River Forest area home?  It is a well-known fact that I utilize more technology-based marketing tools than any other area agent or firm! Professional digital photography, website advertising, paid-for optimal listing placement, search engine optimization, local and national print advertising, in-home marketing, area “new listing” mail announcements, personal & professional networking and 24-hour availability are key elements to getting a home sold in today’s market.  It is so important that your home is fully ready to be showcased the minute it goes live on the market.  Create the frenzy… the hype… the excitement!!... and the buyer will come.

Taking care of my customers’ needs is job #1 and leads to long work weeks. This is all I do, every day, seven days a week. Let me help you learn what to do and what NOT to do in order to get your home sold. If you are buying a home, your job is just as rigorous. I can help you with everything from home inspectors to mortgage brokers. Selling or buying? It is always about the details.  Let me, a local expert, help you get to that successful closing date.

"I happened to find Steve just through a web search and he turned out to be the best realtor in Oak Park! His knowledge of the town is extensive, and his knowledge about older homes is so valuable to know which homes to avoid, which are good and just need cosmetic updates. He was patient, thorough and made himself very available to us for questions, countless showings, and never pressured us to spend more than we wanted. Oh, and he was a great negotiator too! Highly recommend."

"Steve Scheuring delivered expert, quality, professional support to me during a complex move. I recently relocated to Boise, ID and had to sell my home in Oak Park, after I already moved. Long-distance, Steve provided expert counsel to me at every turn. He is very knowledgeable about Oak Park and how overall Chicagoland market is doing. I highly recommend Steve as a realtor."

"If we could give Steve more stars we would! We were first-time home buyers and new to Oak Park. Steve worked with us over the course of 6 months to find our perfect home. He took time to show us a variety of houses he knew we likely weren't going to buy simply to truly understand our likes and dislikes. Steve grew up in the neighborhood and is an expert on the different quadrants - he cleared up misconceptions we had in our heads and gave specific answers to all of our questions. He was extremely honest which we needed and appreciated. When we saw the house we were considering, we knew based on his guidance and reaction that we weren't going to find something comparable in our price range. I could not imagine if we hand't moved forward as there has not been a single home pop up since that we would have otherwise considered! Steve was right. Being a first time purchaser, we had a TON of questions and Steve was always available and happy to answer them via text, phone or email. He never passed us off to someone else in his office and the communication was streamlined and thorough. Steve also knows everyone in the home buying industry. He gave us several recommended contacts from mortgage companies, inspectors & lawyers leading up to the purchase and cleaners, electricians, painters, etc. for the post-purchase in addition to walking us through all of the neighborhood "dos and don'ts". While we will now try to stop bothering him, we know we can reach out to Steve at any time with additional questions. He'll be getting our Christmas cards now for sure!"

"Steve was everything we needed in a realtor! We found him by chance at an open house we didn't even plan on attending. He was clearly knowledgeable and passionate about Oak Park. Importantly, he wasn't pushy and smothering, like some other realtors. He let us experience the house at our pace and only stepped in when needed. Months later, when we decided to look for a realtor, we thought "who was that one realtor we met at that random open house?"

Once we chose Steve as our realtor, it was immediately clear we made the right decision. Steve never missed a beat from searching for houses to closing. He was extremely knowledgeable about Oak Park and River Forest. He walked us through every step of the house hunting process. He noticed every detail and was objective in his assessments of the houses. His accessibility was one of his most impressive traits, among many. He spent so much time with us that it was hard to believe he had other clients - but we knew that he had many other clients and treated all of them similarly.

We could not be happier with Steve. He helped us find our dream home!! We honestly cannot think of any suggestions for improvement. You will not be disappointed with Steve."
