  • Represented Licari Foods to find a truck terminal with only a month timeframe after they bought Deli-Boy
  • Helped real estate investors grow from their first to 30+ units in two years, building million-dollar net worth

Stephen is a developer and investor himself, with a dozen units of residential and commercial spaces, which provides him unique insight as a real estate professional. Additionally, as part of the HUNT Commercial team, Stephen considers the marketing, the brokers, and the assistance at the company to be the best he’s ever worked with, and an invaluable asset in helping his clients achieve their real estate goals.

The scoop on Stephen: He ran the golf course his family owned in Liverpool, which was eventually sold to Amazon. Stephen is still an avid golfer – even though he has to pay now!
