As a people-centric leader Steve is fully committed to supporting the growth of the real estate agents and staff members around him.
Steve comes to Simon and Simon with a diverse knowledge base from spending time in various business environments. Steve started his professional career serving in the military. His active duty time was spent as a Naval Nuclear Engineer. The Navy instilled in Steve strong core values and a desire to keep growing professionally. He went on to work as a contracting officer representative for 5 years in corporate contract management for the U.S. Government. He oversaw the performance of contracts and was responsible for making sure they stayed compliant. His main responsibility was for 2 contracts; $86 mil and $30 mil, international contracts that covered 7 countries and throughout the U.S. Between active duty and civil service, Steve spent 12 years working for the government.
A highly motivated individual, Steve found time to get his bachelor’s degree from Regent University. He also spent 6 years in leadership development training focused on corporate level training. Steve learned techniques to help businesses thrive and grow. In the midst of doing all that, Steve got interested in real estate and has spent 10 years working with home renovations and investment properties. He and his talented wife Myra flipped a number of homes. He is passionate about bringing out the beauty and potential of old things; making the old new again. In this season, he and Myra also teamed up on a marketing business which they ran for 5 years.
Whatever he’s doing, whether selling real estate or leading others, Steve has a heart to serve people. “No matter what, I’ve always tried to pursue avenues that help others,” says Steve. When Steve saw the opportunity to come on board at Simon and Simon Enterprises, he was all in. He caught the vision of Brian Simon, owner and Principle Broker and he wanted to help carry out that mission. “Brian is passionate about his vision and helping people be successful and I wanted to come alongside him.”
Steve and Myra have recently grown their family through adoption. Their son Nathan has filled their lives with joy. Along with their rescue dog Leonard, these Hampton Roads natives have enjoyed welcoming the newest member of their family. In his free time Steve loves to travel. Thailand is one of his favorite locations. “It was such a beautiful country filled with some of the most loving and kind people,” Steve recalls. This family also enjoys lots of outdoor time hiking and kayaking.
