Getting to know Steven in ten questions:
1. What made you decide to get into real estate?
Both my parents were in Real Estate. My late mother had an extremely successful career in the industry. As a young child, I remember being in her office and traveling with her on showings etc. I gained a great deal of knowledge from this first-hand experience, so when I eventually became licensed, I began to utilize all of that.
2. Where would we find you on a Friday night in Toronto?
Either with family, enjoying an evening with my children, or eating out at a nice restaurant.
3. Most embarrassing real-estate moment:
I was at a showing for a downtown new Condo. The showing instructions were simple: “condo unoccupied, lock box 1234, please leave card”. My client and I got to the condo, I got the key from the lock box, and opened the door.
We walked in, there was absolutely no furniture in the condo, but there were about 15 Chinese students, all on the floor, sleeping in sleeping bags. They all just sat up and looked at us…
4. Who stands out to you/do you most admire in the business world right now?
The most admirable person in my opinion is Elon Musk.
5. What is the career philosophy / mantra / inspirational quote that gets you through tougher days?
My favourite 3 quotes come from Albert Einstein.
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”
And my favourite quote when things are not going my way.
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
6. What is your theme song?
Simple, “New York, New York”! Also, you may want to check out my very own video on YouTube where I sing the famous “You Are Always On My Mind”: watch it here.
7. Describe your dream home in three words.
My dream home would be located in the beautiful Florida, ocean-side, and large enough to accommodate my family and friends to visit.
8. Where do you see yourself in five years?
In 5 years, I see myself still selling Real Estate! However, I would like to be in a financial position where I can take more winter vacations down to Miami.
9. When you’re not wheeling + dealing real estate, what can we find you doing?
I enjoy movies, dining out, shopping, and traveling. Love day trips, especially to Niagara on the Lake.
10. Highlight of 2019 so far:
