Real estate brings new friends...
I've been fortunate to have been involved with the sale and purchase of a good many homes during more than a decade in real estate and I am proud of my reputation with both the sellers and the buyers of this property. I count all of my clients as friends.

"Steve is an exceptional realtor and the only one I would recommend for Sea Ranch transactions. He is extremely knowledgeable about SR Real Estate, an experienced realtor, and a very nice guy. He helped us find our dream house in a single day, and it turned out to be a property which was not even on the market. This was the easiest home purchase we have ever transacted."
Steve Carnes is unique in the real estate business in that he spends a great deal of time learning with great specificity his client's interests and desires and then he spends the necessary time to investigate all potential properties to find any and all property(ies) that meet those objectives. If there are none available at the time, he will tell his client(s) and keep them up-to-date of any future property(ies) that comes on the market meeting the client's objectives. And he has a great personality.

Steve Carnes worked gently with us during our search for a second home at The Sea Ranch. As well as holding our hand during the process, his care and concern continues after the closing from help on deliveries to information about services and important events. Now we are happy to call him a friend.

"My wife and I are extremely satisfied with our experience working with Steve Carnes on the purchase of our second home in Sea Ranch. Being busy professionals, we needed someone who could quickly understand our wishes, target the right properties, and make optimal use of our time.
As a Sea Ranch resident Steve is well prepared to answer a wide range of questions not only on the properties but on all aspects of living in the area. The combination of Steve chasing issues at his end and being readily available via phone and email made the process go smoothly."

Steve Carnes is certainly the best real estate agent we have ever encountered. His patience, understanding, competence and genuine good nature put us at ease and allowed us to make the right decision when it came to the purchase of our lot at The Sea Ranch. He took the extra time, and went the extra miles, to show us all of the properties that were available within our priorities, adding his own personal experience and knowledge along the way. He is comfortable to work with and very straight forward in all his communications. His positive and energetic personality and gentle solution oriented approach to any problems enabled him to work on our behalf when dealing with the complexities of our real estate transaction. Steve made the effort to explain every detail and answer all of our questions. We would, and do, most assuredly recommend him to anyone considering the purchase or sale of coastal property. We couldn't be happier.

We've known Steve Carnes since 1999 and have been doing business with him since. He's marshalled us through both purchase and sales of residential property at The Sea Ranch. We are the type of clients who like to "look at everything" and Steve has withstood our interests with good grace. He is thorough, kind and thoughtful. Steve has gone above and beyond what is expected of a normal realtor and we have really appreciated his being there for us. Both he and his wife Kristin are great assets to the community and good people to know.

"Please be advised I have been coming to the sea Ranch for rest and sanctuary for the better part of 11 years. In so doing, I have become familiar with many of the local folklore and legends including but not limited to the legend of Steve Carnes. Krisann and I first became acquainted with Steve approximately 6 months ago. It was a typical Sea Ranch late spring/early summer weekend, one filled with clear skies and beautiful weather......on this particular trip we had planned to go on a tour of homes for sale on the Ranch to simply gain a better understanding of the market values . Meeting Steve was a genuine pleasure. Steve is very outgoing and gregarious, an authentic people person. He planned a tour of five or six homes to provided a cross section of homes that spanned a wide range of styles and values from $800,000.00 to $3,000,000.00, but nothing really moved us. Steve kept his sense of humor intact, disarming us at all times, keeping it light.....and then there was that last house of the tour......we walked in, it felt like home and we knew intuitively that we couldn't live without it. And the next day that same exact feeling came flooding through......and the rest, as they say, is history. During the course of escrow Steve's real estate prowess, his consummate professionalism and his ability to vigorously represent his client were exceptional. He not only made the purchasing process a rare pleasure. In the aftermath, upon the close of escrow, Steve and Krissy, his lovely wife have become great neighbors and friends."
"Now that the dust of our Sea Ranch sale has settled I want to pass on our sincere thanks for all you did in representing us.
We have purchased or sold at least ten residences and our experience with you was the most professional, efficient and pleasant we have had. You took the time to understand our goals, staged and presented our home to meet our goals and then successfully reached them. We could not have asked for more.
Again, our thanks and we wish you well in the future. "
