Steve Lautenbach is a great realtor. He has currently listed our house for sale and we cannot be more pleased with him. He is very professional, has a great personality, listens to your concerns, and is willing to help out. On the day that professional photos were going to be taken of our house for the listing and for the virtual tour, he even ran to the store to pick up quartz cleaner, stainless steel cleaner and paper towels because I had ran out of these items. He clearly explained the marketing plan for our house and has stuck to the marketing plan. He is early, well-organized and dependable. I highly recommend him.

"It takes an extraordinary real estate agent to find an extraordinary house. That is exactly what happened to us when we met Steve." 


Barbara Rosenberg

Barbara and I are delighted with the new home we purchased in Palm Springs using Steve Lautenbach as our Realtor. We had narrowed our retirement home location to the area, but were just beginning the search process. Serendipity played a definite role. Having met Steve at a local Open House, this kind, warm and most professional real estate agent proceeded to help us discover the possibilities. The essential factor in our relationship was his capacity to listen and to demonstrate the options. We never felt pressured or overwhelmed. In fact, it was a real joy to spend time with him.

Our personal reference was a location with a gorgeous mountain and desert panorama. His research to find our dream home was “love at first sight.” A significant stumbling block was our inability to move immediately. No problem. In short order, Steve had discovered a dream tenant for our property.

We returned East with 6 weeks to close the purchase and seal the deal with a 1 year lease with the tenant. In a seamless pattern of inspector, state forms, Title Company, funds transfer, and negotiations with the Seller, all was accomplished effortlessly, professionally, and with a strong sense of caring. We believe that only through the efforts of Steve Lautenbach would we be anxiously anticipating our future life in Palm Springs.

Moving away from our home community thousands of mile to the Inland Empire was a much anticipated step for us. However, the accomplishment of our dream would not have possible without the special knowledge and services he brought to task. In fact, among the happy prospects of our moving into this home in 2015 is the opportunity to continue our friendship with him. No detail, no explanation, no assistance was answered with anything less than total accommodation and fulfillment. In no small measure, this beautiful home with an incredible vista would truly not have been possible without Steve's insight and impeccable service.

For us, this fabulous adventure into our retirement has been so greatly enhanced and made possible through this special realtor. It comes as no surprise that we most highly recommend any purchaser to contact him. We firmly believe that your experience in purchasing a Palms Springs Home will be equal to ours. Steve Lautenbach is a true professional and a wonderful person.

Without Steve Lautenbach my husband and I would never have found our dream retirement home in Palm Springs.  It was more than his real estate acumen that led us there.  It was also his ability to listen to what we wanted, even when my husband and I differed, and to understand our values.  His sensitive communication with the sellers and their real estate agent also facilitated the entire process.  We realize now that to make this time of our lives extraordinary, we needed an extraordinary home.  That's exactly what Steve made possible. Although buying a house across the country can be incredibly difficult, we were able to successfully do so because of Steve's perseverance and dedication. Steve was always available to us, both day and night.  He even toured new listings on our behalf.  His knowledge, connections and determination were what ultimately helped us accomplish our dream of purchasing a beautiful Palm Springs vacation home!

Dear Steve,

We want to thank you for the pleasurable experience we encountered on the sale of our home in Palm Springs.  We faced a tough market, especially with the Canadian/US dollar.  With your perseverance and unwavering commitment, we enjoyed top market value at the time and your expertise on the tax situation for a Canadian homeowner in the US.  We realized a short turnaround for our IRS tax credit thanks to you. 

We would recommend Steve, for buying or selling of a home in Palm Springs to any of our friends or acquaintances.

Brent and Gail, Kelowna Ca

Our home search stretched over nearly two years, from "just curious" to "we're ready to buy." Steve was unfailingly courteous and considerate throughout that time, scaling back contact when we were not actively looking and picking up the pace when we were ready to commit. Once we began our search in earnest, he was patient and flexible. We pushed his local knowledge by wanting to compare homes in nearby areas outside his primary geographic focus. We even made our first offer on one such home, but Steve proved equal to gathering intelligence that reinforced our decision not to go forward with that purchase. We ultimately purchased a Palm Springs home that Steve had correctly spotted as being of likely interest to us. Despite several challenges, Steve helped us to close the deal in less than 30 days, and continued to help us when we had some post-transaction hiccups with the local internet provider. We started with a realtor and ended with a new friend. What more can we say?


Terry & David, CA.

For fifty years my husband and I have worked with dozens of Real Estate agents , and we can honestly say Steve is the best. While others have done a good job, Steve has been outstanding. Here's why: He advocates and cares about his clients; he is honest, fair, and forthright; he is a true professional in the manner with which he approaches each situation; he has wonderful communication skills whereby he sends you property updates at least once or twice a week; he puts in the time, effort, and energy to present your property for his entire listing period using brouchures and having weekly Open Houses; he immediately takes care of problems that may occur such as a leak in a pipe and a non working patio fountain .Steve is like no other Realtor because he really puts his clients first and because he operates fairly within the guidelines of the Real Estate community. We most certainly recommend Steve for any future Real Estate purchases and sales AND we would happily offer testimony to others about the quality of his work.
