We had an extremely difficult closing in NYC . Steve was the chosen one from around 5 other agents. Why you may ask ?
This guy is a gem.
His leavelheaded almost zen approach to everything made our deal and transition flawless.
Coming from NY City of skeptics , he was the shining light in all the darkness of what our buyers put us though. He knew. He worked with us offering practical solutions over all !
He will always be remembered as a friend , not Just like an agent , welcome in our new home and cherished as a future friend forever.
Steve Lorimer, you rock!
Grateful and happy we have chosen right.
Thank You, Steve.
When we moved here from outside the Washington, D.C. area, our intention was to rent a home for an extended period of time until we found the exact area to settle in permanently. With me being a North Carolinian and my husband a good old Northern boy, I wanted to ensure this situation was going to work out for him. It didn't take long before we realized that we missed being homeowners and began to ask around about Realtor recommendations. I even connected with a few to help us find a rental when we moved here and sensed this was not a top priority since neither of them followed up with me when they found out we were renting. Business must be that good if a Realtor can ignore the short-term client even if there is hope it will convert to a long-term client. We continued to make connections and they continued to not follow up. I personally felt like I was dating again! I then had the great chance to have a professional headshot made at Bazemore Studio and mentioned my predicament to the owner. He referred a Realtor to me that he guaranteed would be incredibly reliable and customer focused. Only half-believing him, I snatched his business card and vowed to call him. Surprisingly he answered his phone and actually had a conversation with me! Oh my, what just happened? Steve Lorimar quickly became the Realtor we would connect with and trust to help us find the perfect home somewhere in Charlotte. We have to applaud his patience because we went from location to location to location, then style, to style to style. At one point it was a potential scrape in Myers Park to a new reno in Plaza Midwood. Through it all, Steve was accommodating, patient, honest, and reliable. We changed our minds so many times that I do not know how he kept up. Then HE found the home that we bought by piecing together all of our likes, really likes and no-ways. He listened and asked questions for all the right reasons. I think he knew us better than we knew ourselves. When the time came to make a final decision, it was so easy and natural because we had ruled out all of the noise along the way. Debriefing after every tour with Steve prevented us from needing to go back and do all of the homework. We knew this was right and time to move forward. We were in great hands with Steve and time to bring it home, no pun intended. Steve Lorimer initiated and maintained the ultimate home-buying experience for us. During a stressful time, diminishing unnecessary distractions and chaos is essential and we are grateful to Steve for having done that for us from the initial meeting until after we closed. Without being pushy and aggressive, we always knew he was close by when we needed him. I wish we could clone him and distribute him everywhere we do business! Many thanks to Steve and all of the Allen Tate support team that helped us with a successful close on a home that we love very much.
This was our second time working with Steven Lorimer and we will continue to use him as our realtor! Not only did he make our first time home buying experience fantastic, but he made the second time even better. We are younger home buyers and Steven does a wonderful job at educating us about the home buying process. We feel comfortable and have trusted him with many of our home buying decisions. He makes the home buying process as stress free as possible. Even after the home buying process, Steven continues to keep up with us and always treats us as his customers. We are so thankful for the way he handles his work and would recommend him to anyone!

Steven was referred to my husband and I through a friend, and we couldn't have been more grateful for this recommendation! We worked with Steven on both the selling of a former residence as well as the purchase of our first home together and the experience was seamless. Steven was professional, friendly, available, hardworking and embodied everything we were looking for in this process. He went above and beyond to schedule inspections, obtain quotes and ensure things were handled when at times, we were too busy to do so ourselves. He proactively kept us updated on the deal status to ensure we were completely informed of where things stood. We would highly recommend him to anyone for the buying or selling of their next property

Steven had no idea what he was getting into with me as a client! I was very particular with exactly what I was looking for and he definitely delivered. We miraculously closed on a house in under 4 weeks, which has to be some kind of record. He was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and kept all parties involved on track to meet my tight deadline. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone house hunting in the area.
Steven is the kind of person that will go the extra mile to make you feel at ease with a home purchase. He was there for all home inspections/certifications, did a wonderful job of analyzing comparable listings in the area to make sure we weren't overpaying, and even went out of his way to make sure the carpets were cleaned before we moved in! If you are looking for a Realtor that will make this home buying process go as easy as possible, then Steven Lorimer is the agent for you. We are glad we hired him for our first purchase and look forward to working with him again for our next!
I can't say enough about Steven, he wasn't only our real estate agent he became an instant friend. He was very professional in his approach to our needs for a new home but even more than that he cared about the future of our family and the importance of finding exactly the right home for us. He was patient and more importantly he worked very hard at finding the exact home that we wanted. He took us to at least twenty different properties until we found the one that suited us perfectly. What a blessing to have found the home that we knew instantly was the right one. Steven saw to it that all of the necessary things were taken care of even though it was a new home. He found things that needed to be taken care of that we would have otherwise overlooked considering the fact that this was new construction. Steven is an awesome friend and realtor and we highly recommend him to any one looking for they're forever home.

Steven was extremely helpfull with our home search: very professional and patient. We didn't feel any pressure to make a decision. Eventually he found a home right for us and took care of all the details. I definetely recommend him to anyone looking for a property!
We were thinking about purchasing a condo in the Fort Mill Region. Our time was very limited and we meet Steven Lorimer on a very short notice. First time we meet Steven we thought he would be the right Agent for us to work with. His knew right away what we were looking for and he went out of his way to find the right place within our very short time frame. We could call Steven at any time if we had quetions etc. He helped us in every way possible to find what we were looking for. It took us about 2 weeks to put an offer in and closed within 7 days on beautiful condo Steven found for us. He is a very laid back person, he made us feel very special, we never felt rushed, he went out of his way to make the transaction and transition very easy for us. We don't know how we could have done this without him. We are very happy with Steven, he is a great guy and very easy to work with. After only days we felt we had known him all our live. We would buy or list a property with Steven Lorimer In a heartbeat Thank's Steven
Steven was thrown into our situation at the last possible moment, as the Realtor we had been working with for months backed out of helping us. This was two days before we flew to NC from CA to look at homes. We only had 3 days to see as many homes as possible and make our decision. Steven was patient with us when it came to showing properties. Often I gave him a list of 6 or more to view in one day. He scheduled as many as he could and then was willing to show us the same property more than once if we asked. We were confident in Steven's opinion after the first house he showed us, he exuded integrity. We made an offer the day we flew out of state and Steven really took control of the process from that point forward, knowing we couldn't be here to do it ourselves. He scheduled all of the inspections and then obtained quotes for all of the work recommended in the inspections, as well as for things we had mentioned we wanted to do to the house when we viewed it! At the end of the deal, I can absolutely recommend Steven as a Realtor. He had my family's best interests in mind in everything he did. I feel that he went above and beyond any and all expectations as a Realtor! I have a lot of experience with Realtors and, by far, Steven outshines any that I've met so far.
Working with Steve made my home buying experience pleasant and so easy! Every step of the way, he advised accurately and there wasn't anything he wasn't willing to do! I would recommend Steve to any buyer or seller. No one has more integrity and will worker harder for his customer than Steve! Thank you to the moon and back for giving me such an amazing experience!!!

Steven was an absolute pleasure to work with from day one through closing! He listened to what we wanted and needed out of a home. He did his best to show us homes that would qualify. We ended up going with a new construction and are so happy we did. Steven was with us through the entire process. He worked directly with the builder representative, the builder himself, our lender, and all other involved parties, so that we did not have to. He set up independent home inspections and accompanied us on all of our walk-through's at the various stages of the building process. His experience in the industry was clearly evident in the way he was able to problem solve the minor difficult situations that we encountered.
Aside from being an amazing professional, Steven is a wonderful, genuine person. He was a pleasure to work with, and we would highly recommend him to any and everybody.
Thank you Steven for getting us our dream home!!

With it not only being our first time buying a home, but also using the VA home loan, Steven helped us tremendously and made our transition into being home owners SEEMLESS! He goes above and beyond the call of the duties of his job scope and really makes his client feel as comfortable as possible when buying a home. When working with Steven, one can tell he puts everything he has into his passion. There was no pressure what so ever from Steven and he had outstanding encouragement and insight as well. We would definitely recommend Steven to anyone who buys a home or any kind of property because whether he knows the answer to what ever question you have about real estate, he gets that answer and makes your life much easier so you can focus on purchasing your new home!!! Thank you Steve!

We just closed on our dream home, and are literally trying to figure out how to spread the word about Steven Lorimer so others can experience the commitment, professionalism and personal investment that we got. As a recently retired military family looking to start our next life chapter with our two daughters, we decided to build a new home from 3 states away in a city we had not lived in. This could have been a nightmare. I now sit and type this in my beautiful new home (we closed 2 days ago!), and the reason it was such a positive experience is hands-down -- Steven Lormer! In Steven, we got just what we needed -- we didn't just get an agent, we got a partner, a seasoned advisor, a boots-on-the-ground loyal advocate, a disciplined negotiator/administrator on our behalf, and a trusted friend. Of all the realtors we've had in our multiple military moves, Steven is by far the one who we felt most consistently "had our backs." I can't tell you the comfort that brought us as we navigated the purchase and construction process from a distance. He was consistently just a text, FaceTime or phone call away, and always represented our interests and kept us informed on process and progress. He took the initiative to push information, provided pictures, asked questions we didn't know to ask, held people accountable on our behalf, and made sure all the steps in the process were meticulously attended to. And he always did it in a manner that was comforting and in-tune with our goals/interests. My wife and I literally said, "He makes us feel like we're his only client!" (but we sure aren't)! Bottom line, this guy is now family to us. Character matters. Expertise matters. Engagement, initiative, patience, professionalism, personality...these all matter. And Steven Lorimer delivers brilliantly on each one. if you are looking for the realtor who doesn't just want to close deals, but wants you to feel safe going through this important process, then you want Steven.
