Prior to moving to Noosa, Steve spent many years in the corporate area in various management positions and eventually in his own business as sales director responsible for the sales and marketing of four offices from Melbourne to Townsville.
Arriving in Noosa 20 plus years ago, Steve and his wife Linda made a start in real estate by purchasing their own real estate business. This passion for real estate had developed over previous years with the purchase, renovation and sale of several of their own homes.
Ever since, Steve has spent most of his working life in sales including many years as national sales manager. He has acquired a diverse range of skills, including skilful negotiation and importantly the skill of talking/liaising with people.
Steve's vast local knowledge, his honesty and integrity bring important attributes to the Noosa real estate market-place. Aiming to provide excellence for buyers and sellers, Steve's professionalism is a natural fit with the Laguna Real Estate team.
We were looking for an agent with strong community ties, extensive local experience and industry longevity. Not only did we find one agent who matched our criteria, but were fortunate enough to find a duo team! The effort and energy that our agents Arn Smith and Steve Smith put into the ultra professional and first class marketing campaign was impressive. Even more impressive, we went to contract 17 days after the first showing, on a very satisfactory price, with a buyer from the agents’ database. All aspects of the listing were “as smooth as silk” and anxiety free. Highly recommend our agents and Laguna from start to finish.

I had the pleasure of first meeting Steve eighteen months ago when I was searching for a property in Noosa. From the outset I found Steve to be outstandingly professional in every aspect of his work. He quickly ascertained my requirements and was always patient and willing to go out of his way to assist with my sometimes onerous hunting for just the right property. Having secured my dream home, Steve continued to be a huge support during the period awaiting for settlement. I was grateful indeed for his empathy in what at times were frustrating conditions. Throughout this difficult time, Steve maintained a calmness that would have challenged many. He was agreeable to all my requests and accessible wherever and whenever possible. It must be said that his warm and extremely trustworthy personality was always welcomed. I would most definitely seek Steve's assistance should I ever decide to sell. I would also have no hesitation in recommending Steve to anyone I knew who was seeking to buy. I know Steve must be considered a huge asset to Laguna Real Estate. I am indebted to him.
