Tell Us Your Story

Larry recently helped us sell our house, he was very professional, and provided a lot of guidance to us, he sold my house quickly and at top dollar, he really knows his job and we highly recommended to anyone.

He is definitely one of the best realtor in town. Thanks Larry.

Steven and his team are amazing!

This is my second purchase with Steven and throughout both, Steven has been very responsive, punctual, informative, and extremely professional. I've heard nightmare stories that other buyers go through and that has yet to be the case. All of Steven's references are too notch as well. It goes without saying that I will be using Steven and his team on all future real estate transactions.

Steven is EXCELLENT!

We initially contacted him in 2014 for a move from KY to FL and he helped us find a home to rent while we determined next steps (build vs. buy). He then assisted us when we contracted to build our home in Minneola. When the build process became difficult due to multiple builder issues, Steven took the lead with communication on our behalf. He helped us work through the issues and move forward with a very difficult process (a result of the builder issues noted). He was with us every step of the way and was a voice of reason to us. His knowledge and expertise are second to none and we appreciated his patience throughout. I highly recommend Steven to anyone in the Orlando area

In late fall of last year, my wife and I were interviewing multiple potential realtors as we began the search for our first home.

When we met with Steven, he stood out because of his history with our prospective lender, but moreover because he sat with us and put together an MLS search based on the criteria of prospective homes we were considering. While my wife and I continued to save for our down-payment and deciding on our realtor, Steven would send us a weekly updated MLS listing, and it's from this email that we found a property that we had not found ourselves, that we because very interested in. During the week between Christmas and New Years when the house was pulled off the market, Steven worked with the selling agent (who happened to work in his same office coincidentally), and got us a viewing. By New Years we had an agreement with the sellers and by Valentine's day we moved into our new home. We can't recognize Steven enough for his patience and willingness to work with us on our first home buying process, much less our unique request to partner with a lender that would perform manual underwriting, and moreover his diligence with communicating with us on a daily basis over the holidays, to make our dream a success. We would recommend Steven to anyone, and especially first time home buyers. We were spoiled to have him as our realtor.

Jeff P.

I am an experienced home buyer (9 previous purchases) and Steven was very capable and willing to find homes in the area of town that I was interested in.

Not having lived in this area of the state before, I relied heavily on Steven's recommendations for lenders, home inspectors and other ancillary services. Each of his recommendations were spot on and those businesses provided excellent services. I will enlist Steven's services for any future home purchases or sales and I do not hesitate to recommend him for any other home buyers.

John L.

They were a joy to work with and made the process of buying a home as easy as possible.

Jalisa Ortiz

Absolutely professional and exquisite service.

Larry took care of us over two days. The first day we saw what we wanted and some he suggested. He really listened to us during the first day and the second day showed it. The second day he switched things up and showed us what we would have wanted if we knew about them, and we found the perfect house for us. It checked all of our boxes, was move in ready, and he even helped us with an issue after closing. Highly recommended.


Thank You, Lori!

I want to say “thank you” for what you did in selling my condo. You are a really amazing and professional real estate agent. I live in Canada which is not convenient to contact the tenant, Condo manager, HOA office…And you did everything on your own. My condo had some issues which I did not know about. When the issues happened, you checked with inspectors, contacted the HOA office and my insurance company. Anyhow, you did what you could to settle all of the issues. You are the most experienced and professional agent that I have met. Meanwhile, you are a nice person. Definitely I will hire you again if I want to buy/ sell the property in the near future. For sure, I will refer you to my friends who are willing to buy property in Florida, USA. Thanks again and good luck to you.

We have worked with Brenda 2 times over the years.

The first time was a new home purchase in 2003 / 2004. Moving fro another state, Brenda spent quite a bit of time with us to somewhat familiarize us with the areas. In 2013, she again assisted us with the sale of the same home. Again, she went far above and beyond to help ensure that we were well prepared to sell and was able to complete the transaction for us. Each time we have been extremely satisfied with her extensive knowledge of the region / communities and homes / builders. More importantly, Brenda is a pleasure to work with! She has patience, compassion and understands and respects her clients needs. We always knew that we could contact her anytime with questions, even after moving in to the home. Brenda also has the knowledge and the resources to answer and assist with the financial / legal portion of the transaction. We highly regard Brenda as a well versed, highly skilled and caring realtor! Additionally, we consider her a friend, not just someone that shows homes. We strongly suggest that you contact Brenda for you selling / purchasing needs as once you speak and meet with her, you will feel the same way as we do!

Can't say enough good things about Steven Horner.

Always available and pre active in helping us find our home in Orlando. As we are new to this area, we relied on his suggestions and advice. Never once let us down. He was there from the beginning of our search through to the end of closing with a lot of excellent suggestions. Highly recommend.

Steve N.

Had dealt with company Re/Max in Past, so when approached this area looked under Re/Max and others and Paul immediately responded, understood what I was looking for ,.

he was prompt, courteous and on top of everything...super responsive! Would Highly recommend him and will absolutely use his services again for any future purchases in area. Highest recommendations without any reservation (and from me this is most unusual as I am a very picky, perfectionistic person).

Amy J

I am so happy to have found Steven during our home buying process!

Steven was able to help us purchase a new construction and help ease some of the stressful moments during the process. He was able to negotiate numerous times with the builder to help us get a few concessions/credits towards our home during some unexpected events (such as HOA increases, closing delays due to construction, etc.) Steven communicated effectively and professionally via email and phone with the builder, and made himself available to us everytime we needed to contact him. He provided support from the day we locked in our home site in Dec. 2018 up until the day we closed in Sept. 2019. I am very grateful for Steven's help, responsiveness, and knowledge throughout our first-home purchase! You won't be disappointed with him, I highly recommend Steven as a Real Estate Professional!

Ashley R

Steven has been amazing with so many aspects of our home purchases.

My husband and I are from Colorado and he has helped us with 3 investment properties to negotiate a great price and introduced us to a great inspector and mortgage team. He is also available 24/7 and has created videos within 12 hours to help us virtually walk the homes which his huge for this market that is turning houses so quickly. I feel like we were super blessed to find the best realtor to work with from the beginning.

Jeanie F

Garth, thank you for the time you invested in finding this property and also for recommending Marc.

Your professionalism and personal attention throughout the process are deeply appreciated. I really admire your understanding of your work and ability to identify the important items necessary to make this purchase a success. I am especially thankful because we were able to accomplish this transition so many miles away. I will gladly recommend your services to my friends or anyone who might need a home! Thank you so much, I am very grateful! Norma

Aida es increíblemente atenta, muy profesional.

Mauricio Perez De Marco

Ben at RE/MAX Prime Properties Real Estate hired my company to take photos for several of their property listings.

I have observed Ben and Bart interacting with their clients and they have both been great listeners and advisors to their client’s specific needs. On a business level between Florida Home Images and the Stern Realty Team, Ben and Bart have always provided great communication, professionalism, and they are always a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Stern Realty Team for any real estate transaction. Jen Helton, Photographer | Florida Home Images

Steven is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

We bought a house in Kissimmee with Steven's help. We were moving from Portland, OR to the Orlando area and had no idea where to start. I saw his stellar yelp reviews and messaged him through yelp to see if he would be willing to chat with us (we had lots of questions and just wanted to see if it was a good fit). He was so awesome and got back to us in record time. It was clear to us that he genuinely wanted to help people find the right home for them. We hired him immediately and since we were long distance, he took care of everything. We ended up going out there to look for houses and he was so good at getting us into the houses that we wanted to see all in a weekend. We had some hiccups with a couple of sellers throughout the process and he went above and beyond to help us. He was super fast in his responses, very professional, very detail-oriented, and always gave us his honest opinions and advice. He was always willing to do extra work to make sure we were covered in all aspects of the home-buying process. He even did the walk through for us the day of closing. I can't even fathom going with anyone else to purchase a home. By the end of our process, he felt like a member of the family. Hire him! You will be so happy you did!

Haley H.

We were referred to Steven by Churchill Mortgage, as he is a Dave Ramsey ELP.

We were not disappointed. We have purchased and sold many properties throughout the years, and Steven did a magnificent job making a relatively familiar process as pain-free as possible. His diligence and absolute professionalism were consistent and always appreciated-- and his persistence in tying up the remaining loose ends even after we closed the transaction was exemplary. The property seller in our transaction appeared to have been represented by a fixed fee, low cost/no service listing broker. The contrast in service between the seller's broker and Steven was remarkable-- at times Steven even stepped up and worked directly with the seller to ensure that our transaction closed on time and without hiccup (a 30 day escrow!). We also appreciate that Steven brought a host of other excellent professionals with him to our team, including a top-notch home inspector, and a perfectly pleasant and fastidious closing agent. We wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Steven to anyone looking for excellent representation in a real estate transaction!

Lance S.

Steven was great helping me through my first time home buying experience!

You can tell that he is very knowledgeable in his field of work and that was reassuring for me. He is there every step of the way during the process and continues to be available even after the process is completed. Now that's what I call awesome customer service!

Shawntta B.

Totally love the whole experience Ben Stern and Bart Barter provided.

Their insight to what was most important on our house to sell and what we were hoping to purchase was key to our overall satisfaction . They took the time with the home we sold to ensure everything was in order for its best overall appeal. That same keen insight to find us what we really wanted, then also in the area where we wanted; made the beginning to end, an awesome experience. Most impressive was their attention to detail all throughout in that nothing was taken for granted or ever assumed. Ben and Bart were the ultimate professionals that we now wholeheartedly call true friends.

Warren & Lori Lenfant

Steven is by far the best Realtor you could ask for!

From the initial viewing right to closing he was always there for us no matter how small the question. He would always respond in a timely manner and was there every step of the way guiding us and explaining the process and reports to us. He completely took the stress out of buying a home and we knew we were in good hands and that the closing would happen with everything in place. As we were new to the area he was always happy to give us recommendations but never forced them on us. We couldn't have asked for anyone better and will being telling all our family and friends about Steven and for sure use him in the future. Thank you Steven for all you did for us!!!!

Chantal C

If you are looking for Realtor Services Steven should be your 1st and only choice!

We were first time home buyers and to say we were intimidated at 1st was an understatement. Steven was always available and ready to answer our questions/concerns. We were searching in a red hot market and Steven was on top of getting us in quickly and moving on one we were interested in. He was honest and knowledgeable throughout the entire process which we greatly appreciated! When our favorite house came back on the market, Steven had our offer ready within the hour! It still amazes me how quickly he was able to get back to us and able to move on things! We love our new home and are grateful to have had such a dedicated person on our team for our 1st purchase. He is A++ and we highly recommend.

Nicole L.

I have to give a HUGE shoutout to The Aridas Team at Re/Max Prime Properties for being rockstar realtors — they worked tirelessly to help us get our dream house despite a multiple offer situation, handled everything swiftly, were available 24/7, and overall were our advocates and friends throughout the process!

My husband and I were first time home buyers and we cannot recommend them enough!! They were extremely kind, professional, and overall awesome. Larry was immediately answering our calls, emails, and text messages - regardless of if it was 7am or 11pm. Mike walked us through homes and helped us see things from a realtor's perspective. They helped us get our preferred earlier appointment on closing day and went to bat for us whenever there were bumps in the road. We are beyond grateful for the guidance of The Aridas Team and (though we cannot imagine leaving our "new to us" dream home) we will definitely be using them whenever we need a realtor in the future!

Elizabeth Chesebro

Roland was always professional and dedicated to our needs.

Not only did he find us our new home, as each of us had specific needs and wants. He was able to work with neighboring realtors to get our other home ( which had a specific market) sold. We have found a new friend in Roland and will definitely refer others.

Keith W.

They were very professional, went above and beyond and I couldn't have asked for anything more!

I will definitely be using them in the future!

Crystal Back

We are huge Dave Ramsey fans and contacted Steven through the Dave Ramsey referrals.

We worked with him for well over a year as we decided where to buy, how much to spend, etc. Steven was always patient with us and not once pushy. When we wanted to look at a property (and we looked at several) he treated us like his top priority every time. Neighborhood after neighborhood, house after house we finally found our dream home. We received an accepted offer within a few hours of it being listed. Had we not had Steven, a highly knowledgeable and professional Realtor, in our corner we might not of taken the right steps to ensure we got the property. Thank you Steven!!

Erin N.

Moving from Indiana to Orlando in our retirement years was a major investment in every way.

We knew no realtors in this area and we needed someone we could trust. So, we contacted a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider several years in advance to help steer us through the process. This is how we came to know Steven. Eventhough we had not yet met face to face, Steven was diligent in providing us information and data during this time. He continually followed through for us. Thus began a lasting relationship that continues today nearly two years after the purchase of our home. If you are looking for a realtor who is a "sage on the stage" pushing you in one direction or the other because they think they know what is best for you, then call someone else. But, if you would rather have a "guide on the side" that informs, advises, and lets you lead the process, Steven is your man. He will be there for you all the way. Steven does not just possess the qualities of a great realtor, he enbodies the characteristics of a great person. That is why today we call Steven a trusted friend.

Sherman Jones

I had the pleasure of working with Shirley as my realtor and I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with her attention to detail and commitment to finding me the perfect home.

Unlike other realtors, Shirley took the time to truly understand my needs and didn't offer locations that didn't fit those requirements. She went above and beyond to ensure that I found a home that ticked all the boxes. What stood out to me the most was how she asked us questions based on each house we were looking at, which allowed her to suggest an alternative that we were not aware we wanted. This attention to detail and her ability to gauge our interests allowed us to find the right home in just one outing with her. Shirley also stayed by our side throughout the entire process, making sure all our paperwork was in order and that we were getting exactly what was advertised in the listing. It's rare to find a realtor who genuinely cares more about finding the perfect home for their clients rather than making a quick commission. In fact, Shirley even took us to a cheaper house than one we had decided on, just to make sure we left no stone unturned. Her professionalism and attention to detail are qualities that are desperately needed in the real estate industry. Overall, I highly recommend Shirley as a realtor. Her commitment to finding the perfect home for her clients and her attention to detail truly sets her apart from the rest. Thank you, Shirley, for helping me find my dream home!

Walt Quinn

Steven helped us to find a property within our budget in a desirable location.

He was always prompt and knowledgeable with a hart of a teacher guiding us through the process of selecting the house we like. We appreciated Steven patients and professionalism.


Steven gave us the reassurance that we would have a positive outcome even when our prospects of success didn't seem very bright.

We had to find a house that met our specifications in a short time frame and in what seemed to be a tight seller's market. Steven was able to provide listings and calmly advise us on the best approach for making an offer. We found a house that exceeded our expectations, took Steven's advise on making the offer and not only got the house, but all of the furniture too. Steven was patient and calm even during our time of high anxiety. We highly recommend Steven to anyone who is looking for an agent who is kind, calm and really knows his profession.

Craig F.

We enjoyed working with Steven when we moved from Minnesota and needed to buy a home in the Orlando area.

Steven provided helpful insights about life in Florida and what to look for and beware of in Florida homes. He was patient and eager to help, always ready to answer questions as needed. He replied quickly to emails and texts as he guided us through home buying process. If you're looking for a realtor who is pleasant and knowledgeable and easy to work with, Steven is your man. (As a bonus, he's a foodie who can give you some great restaurant recommendations in the area.)

Jon B.

We were glad to have met her and when our first time looking fell through we didn't forget and used her a year later.

Work with her, because she will work with you. Attention to detail and she will not get tired of your annoying calls. :)


My wife and I relocated to central Florida from Buffalo NY not knowing many people here.

A friend introduced us to Lori and we connected with her immediately; she was warm, friendly, interested in what we truly wanted, and assured us we would find the ideal home. Lori took us to several locations in the greater Orlando area and once she showed us King's Ridge we knew we had found the location; after seeing a few homes we discovered 'the one' that both my wife and I felt 'like home.' Within a few short weeks we had the home we wanted. Lori is not only the consummate professional, she is a genuine advocate who works for her clients and endeavors to find the right property within the established budget. Her follow up is timely and she is not hesitant to express issues that could arise...a truly honest agent with integrity. Best of all, we truly enjoyed the experience we had with Lori...and we are privileged to consider her a friend.

Vince E. - Clermont, FL

Steven provided awesome realtor services.

As first time home buyers the process of buying a house can be a little intimidating. Steven was very patient and answered all of our questions to ensure we were properly educated on the properties we were interested in. We appreciate Steven's help in finding our new home. Thank you!!

James C.

Larry and Carmen helped us with our home purchase in Winter Garden.

We are so blessed with Aida.

Had a awesome experience to buy a house. Aida is the best agent that we had. So great full, detailed, always available for any questions, concerns or details. Easy to work with, always has a suggestion how to do or not to do. We are so lucky had an unfortunate and easy purchase and already looking to work with Aida in purchasing another house!

Anna Lakiza

Aida was fantastic helping us buying our home.

From answering all our question to resolving all the needs. Very attentive. Would recommend her services to anyone.

Stephanie B.

I initially contacted Steven via email through the Redfin website.

Little I knew that this was just the the beginning of not just a realtor-customer relationship, it was the beginning of a great friendship. Steven really knows how to guide customers through the entire process. He's quick to respond to questions, very professional, and always looking for my best interest during the negotiations. Better than any of those TV realtors, he's the real deal.

Jose I.

We had specific needs, a strict timeline, and were coming from out of state.

Aida listened to us, showed us thoughtful properties, and was committed to helping us find the right house for our family. Aida is a wonderful person and a great realtor. We highly recommend.

Mandi Brown

A complete all-around professional.

Great listener and really helps look at all options available when buying or selling. He remains to have a great bearing of the community and keeping the sales process as simple as possible. He keeps a positive spirit every time. As many times I can buy and sell a home, Roland will be my first call and top recommendation for anyone.

Zhay R.

She is the best out there !

! Aida did an amazing job helping us find our new home. We highly recommend Aida if you are planning on buying your home. She is amazing and gave my wife and I personalized attention and was always available for any views, questions or concerns. She is very knowledgeable of the Orlando and neighboring areas. She took the time to understand us, things that were important to us, things that we wanted for our new home and then showed us a series of houses until I found the perfect one for us. If the opportunity ever arose we would definitely work with Aida again!

Phattharawut Nongnut

My husband and I were facing the overwhelming challenge of purchasing our first home when we met Steven.

We are so thankful for all that he as done throughout the whole process! We went to see houses until we found the right first home for us. But he didn't stop there. He was a huge help with all the things that followed and all the questions we had between finding our home and closing on it. Steven was there through every step. He has become a friend who we know we can text or call whenever we have any home related questions. We definitely recommend him! Stop looking, you found your realtor!

Sarah Lynn P.

We come here on vacation and looked at houses in the area.

She took us to all builders and we managed to find the home that had everything we needed for our family to relocate from Maryland. Brenda made our home purchase easy. We are still in our home and still love everything about it.

Tasha Torres

"Blessed to have the opportunity to be a homeowner again!

Thank you to my Realtor Roland Barcenilla and Mortgage Officer Terri Hatfield - Dull for assisting and making it happen! If you are in the market of selling or buying I highly recommend them. The process was professional, smooth and efficient! Excited for the future and creating new memories to share with my family & friends!"

Lyle J.

Very patient and helpful.

Larry always took the time to further explain if we had any questions. He understood our perspective and point of view, while helping us understand the best way to go about different things. Grateful to have such a kind team walk us through this home-selling experience.

Victoria Borgela

Paul is just simply OUTSTANDING in every way!

!! He is very detail oriented and is extremely personable, attentive and encouraging. I'd use his services again in a New York second!!!! Hand's down the best agent I've ever worked with!

Dwayne Thomas MD

"I met Roland and his wife, Mary, both realtors, for first time at one of the open houses at Avalon townhouse area when I was looking for place to live in Orlando.

Since then Roland and Mary had been a great help for me and my family to find the right home for us to move from Ohio. Roland made close to 30-40 appointments for me to search houses in Oviedo, Avalon and Lake Nona areas. And he also went to the houses and did a face-time with us while we were in Ohio since we could not be in Orlando all the time. Roland had a very strong customer focus and I highly recommend him to my colleagues at work who are also looking for help moving from Ohio to Orlando. Overall, we have been very happy with Roland's professionalism and detail to attention. Thanks again!"

Fajar A.

She knows what she's talking about and if she doesn't she won't pretend to know and she will research and help you find out what you need to know.

2. She has the right connections. She knows the good and honest people that you will have to deal with eventually. She won't refer someone who she, herself doesn't trust. 3. She is very, very responsive. She will call you and if you call her she answers quickly. She knows her job and she does it well. 4. She is honest and hardworking. She won't force you into something that you're doubtful of. I was overly confident with what I bought and at the end of it all, me and my husband was very happy with our purchase.

Jasmine Jaucian

We had a great experience working with Steven.

He was very responsive, listened to our needs and provided multiple listings (26) over a three day period. He responded to our requests very promptly and was able to answer our questions. New to Florida, he helped guide us far than we hoped about the process of buying a home reducing the stress that often occurs. He knew the area very well and provided pros and cons to help us narrow our decision making to 3 alternatives. We were able to accomplish making a decision and close on our new home in 30 days. He follow up after closing several times to ensure we were satisfied. Good job Steven!

William W.

Steve was awesome for us.

This was first time buying a home. He basically held my hand through the entire process. If you want an easy process with someone who makes sure he takes care of his clients from beginning to end Steve is your agent. He is highly recommended Thanks Steve for all your help and our new home

Danny L.

Very dedicated, always willing to help and answer every inquiry, knows the area well and understands what one is looking for, always interested in our needs and willing to accommodate to ones schedule

Carolina Ortega

Shirley is hands down the best realtor I’ve ever worked with.

She’s very knowledgeable and professional. In addition she is also a great person. Highly recommend her.


Steve was amazing every step of the way for us.

He was knowledgeable and guided us, but was never pushy to just get a sale. We must have seen dozens of homes before we found the right one. But he excelled even more with the negotiation process, getting the best deal for us and representing our interests with great insight into the real estate world; all with great professionalism, honesty, and willing to go the extra mile. Will always go back to him and recommend him to anyone needing any real estate service.

Keith B.

Aida is an excellent professional, responsible, honest and with the necessary experience to handle the purchase and sale of properties.

I recommend it to you... Aida es una excelente profesional, responsable, honesta y con la experiencia necesaria para manejar la compra y ventas de propiedades. Se las recomiendo.

Fatima Pereira

Steve is a great realtor.

He was very knowledgeable, helpful, and most importantly very patient. With his easy-going and personable approach, Steve made the home-buying experience a very pleasant one. I would recommend Steve to anybody.

An Q

My wife and I used Steven to help us buy our home when we moved to the Orlando area.

We were not familiar with many areas and Steven used his knowledge to help us narrow down our search. He is always available and answered his phone anytime that I called for questions. When the sellers tried to pull some shenanigans, Steven helped me stay level headed and was there beside me every step of the way. Would definitely recommend!

Josh T.

We worked with Steve well over a year to find a future home to live in as snowbirds after we retire.

And we wanted to be near Disney. Steve worked tirelessly with us (24/7 to be exact - his emails came in at all times of the day and night!), showing us homes as per our specifications and price point. He is professional, knowledgeable, personable, confident, and patient. He walked us through the entire process from beginning to end. He communicated with our mortgage company and title company to make sure everything would fall into place for our closing. He is very familiar with the area where we purchased our home, so he gave us recommendations for shopping and dining. We highly recommend Steve as a Realtor!!!

Judy C.

When we first came to Orlando we were a little lost trying to find a place to live and call it "HOME".

Aida not only helped us find one, but did it with tremendous professionalism. Her useful insights, due diligence, noticeable interpersonal skills and wise counseling, helped us a lot. It also helped that she is bilingual and bi-cultural which gives her a better understanding of her client's needs. I never write a review, but this one is truly deserving I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Aida Urteaga to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of my future real estate transactions.

Roxana Ciudad Real

Larry and his team did a great job and sold the property at a good price very very quickly.

I interviewed five different real estate professionals but Larry was the only one with an astute understanding of the best attributes of the propertiy's unique location and a vision of what it could become when remodeled by a creative new owner. I recommend him highly and without reservation..

Ashley Brumbeloe

"If there was a choice for a ten star rating, we would give it to Roland and Mary without any hesitation!

!! They were awesome....responded to emails and phone calls at any time of day or night; provided solid guidance, research and resources every step of the way. They were knowledgeable, hardworking, familiar with the Orlando area and yet never tried to push us in any direction. I am a hands on person but I was able to sit back and put the reins in their hands and they CERTAINLY delivered. We never thought that we would get the FL home of our dreams while living in another state AND after having dealt with several other realtors over the last 4 or 5 years. They came through for us every step of the way. We cannot thank them enough!"

R H. Beltsville, MD

Steve and the RE/MAX office are most professional of real estate I have ever used they were able to sell our property and found our new forever home.

My family and I want to say thanks again.

Michael W.

Steven is an amazing realtor.

He is very patient, knowledgeable and very helpful. He is also very detailed oriented and I didn't feel like I had to stress over any paperwork discrepancies because he was on top of it all. He also followed up with me to see how the house was doing. Great person!

Halls of A.

This is our second time using Lori to sell and buy.

Her knowledge, guidance and expertise kept us on track from start to finish. Lori will go above and beyond for her clients. She has a passion for her job and amazing compassion for her clients.


The best agent i have ever used.

Honestly Steve was a God send. After speaking with several agents, Steven was the obvious choice. We looked at many houses over a two month period. As my wants changed , he tried to find a house for us. Two houses fell thru for different reasons. One owner changed to only wanting cash and the other refused to fix items within the house. I wanted a pool and indoor laundry. Four bedrooms with three bathrooms. I had specific financing requirements also. From the beginning until the end Steven was right there with me. If i ever buy another home in the area, the only choice for me is Steven.

Ricky P

Thanks for your upbeat attitude!

Thank you, Lori Lucente Nelson with Metro Brokers for your help on the purchase of our new home. Your upbeat attitude, professionalism and “can do” approach were such assets throughout the whole process of evaluating each prospective property and ultimately closing on our new house. We felt like you made us and our interests top priority. How refreshing!

Jill W. - Orlando, FL

Larry was the perfect agent in our process of having the house on sale.

He gave great advice about a few small things we could do to improve the house and was able to sell the house in a very short time. For me, I thought selling the house would be the most stressful part of the process, but Larry was incredible and we are very happy with the results. I highly recommend Aridas Team!

Melissa Gonzalez

Pleasure working with Larry.

Excellent results!

I would definitely recommend Paul Donovan to anyone that is interested in purchasing a property in Orlando.

As I live in Ireland I completely relied on Paul to find me exactly what I was looking for. He is professional and knowledgeable regarding all aspects of buying a home in Orlando. I was very pleased with the service and the property he found me.

Steven is an amazing realtor.

My wife and I reached out to him and let him know what our wish list was and the area we wanted to live in. We told him some homes we were interested in and he brought other great candidates -- he took us through all of them, but we just could not find something in our budget. My wife and I thought we would have to wait a few months until something else came in the market, but maybe a week or two went by and Steven found a new build that was almost completed -- it was not even listed on any of the big websites (Zillow, etc.). He negotiated our home at our budget and even got the closing costs to be COMPLETELY covered -- we were actually paid a large sum of money at closing when we got the home with NO money out of pocket. This man was on top of everything -- he was an amazing asset to this process. My wife and I felt confident and well informed. In the midst of the home buying process, my wife had our first baby and Steven sent us a card and gift card for our baby -- he didn't need to do that, but he is is a good man. He even gave us a custom made house warming gift that we absolutely love! If you want a great realtor who will do the hard work and help you get what you want, Steven is the man. He is on your side and will make sure you are well taken care of. We are absolutely going back to him in the future, assuming we stay in the greater Orlando area.

Aida was great.

Very hard worker, available, and honest. I would work with her again.

Working with Larry and his team was a see less experience.

He was available, encouraging, knowledgeable, and very nice to boot!

Jackie and Ken

Amazing Agent More than amazing agent!

Lori sold our house and found another (dream) one in less than a month. Very kind and professional, we truly recommended her.

Vania M. - Windermere, FL

“Ben was the best choice my husband and i could have made!

! He knew exactly what we wanted and what we would love! When we hit a bump in the road, Ben was always present, available, patient, calm, and intelligent. My husband and I were very assured throughout the entire process. While my husband and I were looking for a starter home, Ben found us our FOREVER new dream home!!! 1 month later i still can’t believe this home is actually mine. thanks Ben!!”

Crystal Lovejoy

Paul was able to negotiate a difficult sale in a very professional manner.

I will be using Paul for all of my future purchases and sales, his performance is outstanding.

Jim Van de Laer

Thanks to help from Steven our family is in our first home!

Steven was so easy to work with and when push came to shove he had our best interest in mind and gave great advice. Always available for any questions and was a breeze to work with. Highly recommend!

Jackie M.

Shirley went above and beyond to obtain all the information we needed to purchase our home as well as answering each and every question we had (believe me we had a million questions).

She truly is an agent who listens to what your needs & wants are and she did not stop looking until she found a property that was perfect for us.


Larry was absolutely incredible!

He was extremely timely with returning emails or texts and always available when I needed assistance. He helped explain things and really break them down to ensure I understood them. I will use Larry and the Aridas Team again in a heartbeat!

Katie McCloskey

Steven was my real estate agent when I searched for a vacation rental in the Kissimmee Florida area.

My wife had actually found him through an excellent Yelp review. I was not disappointed. Even though Steven sells over 100 properties a year, he was always responsive to my calls and emails. Best of all he was a very good and respectful listener and was able to match "what I was looking for from 3000 miles away" to what the local market actually had. After a while we were able to get into a real rhythm as I would find a property online that I was interested in and Steven would then do the investigation for me until we finally found the right property. He was there for me to manage the deal helping me through the negotiations, inspections and financing. When I buy or sell again in the area my first call will be Steven! Jim McConnell

James M.

Roland was a delight to work with.

He is professional, honest, and most of all patient. Coming from someone who's in sales myself, I know how hard it is, in a highly competitive field like real estate. However, Roland stood above the rest by being prepared and knowledgeable. He truly looked out for me as a client. Many questions I didn't know to ask, Roland would take the initiative, and asked many beneficial questions on my behalf, or at least made me aware situations to help make my decision accordingly. I have nothing but good things to say about him, and would highly recommend to anyone.

Brad B.

Steven was very responsive to all of our inquiries and needs.

When we explained our situation and our budget, he helped us narrow our search to properties that might be a good fit for us. During the purchasing process, he let us know what to expect and represented our concerns to the seller. He was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.

Steven N.

Very knowledgeable and explained everything I needed to know to buy my first home.

Very patient with me and even gave me insight to pros and cons of the various homes that I had not myself considered. Gave me good advice when it came time to making my initial offer and worked to ensure I stayed within budget. He even recommended me an excellent mortgage lender and helped make the process seamless. Responses were timely even on weekends and while I was out of the country. He helped ensure I could close on the home within the deadline we spoke about. I could honestly sing his praises all day!


Steve Horner and Larry Aridas are truly a superstar team.

They were able to sell my home within three days of listing and full asking price. They were more than patient with us as we looked at dozens of potential homes to purchase. Steve was always helpful and knowledgeable but never pushy. If you are looking for a realtor to buy or sell your home, you would be insane to go anywhere else.

Cory C.

Ben Stern was a pleasure to have as our Real Estate Agent in the selling of our home.

The house went under contract in less than a week. He stood by my Husband and I every step of the way. Overall he was proactive, professional and thorough. Great work Ben!

Carrie Crearer

My realtor Steven was great and knew exactly what he was doing.

He was professional, kind and patient. i would recommend him to anyone , who wants an experience and well educated realtor on the market

Domingo G.

My husband and I were facing the overwhelming challenge of purchasing our first home when we met Steven.

We are so thankful for all that he as done throughout the whole process! We went to see houses until we found the right first home for us. But he didn't stop there. He was a huge help with all the things that followed and all the questions we had between finding our home and closing on it. Steven was there through every step. He has become a friend who we know we can text or call whenever we have any home related questions. We definitely recommend him! Stop looking, you found your realtor!

Sarah C

Steven is by far the best Realtor you could ask for!

From the initial viewing right to closing he was always there for us no matter how small the question. He would always respond in a timely manner and was there every step of the way guiding us and explaining the process and reports to us. He completely took the stress out of buying a home and we knew we were in good hands and that the closing would happen with everything in place. As we were new to the area he was always happy to give us recommendations but never forced them on us. We couldn't have asked for anyone better and will being telling all our family and friends about Steven and for sure use him in the future. Thank you Steven for all you did for us!!!!

Chantal C.

Superior Knowledge, Superior Service !


Jean Head

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness The Stern Realty team is top notch.

We sold a beach front townhome with Ben and the gang and they made the process very user friendly. Any questions we had, they had answers. They had research for contingencies and they were able to address buyer concerns as well. I would recommend them to my family or friends without reserve. If you have the chance to engage Stern Realty for either side of a real estate transaction, you will not be disappointed.

Todd Siems

Aida Urteaga was our realtor on the recent purchase of our home in Oakland, FL.

We met her at an open house at a planned community we went to visit. We instantly hit it off. She found us the home of our dreams and she was always available for us, very professional and never pushy. By the time we closed on our home, she felt like family. We would recommend Aida to anyone looking for a home in the Winter Garden, FL area.

Carole Howard

Ben and Bart were awesome in the sale of my beach townhouse.

They guided me every step of the way. They worked tirelessly and never missed a beat Their photo/ video team were awesome as well. I am grateful to have found this group and would recommend them as well as work with them in the future.

Tammy Siems

Great feedback, communication, and coaching along the way to closing.

I highly recommend Larry and his team to sell your home.

Darrell Fryer

Steven is incredible.

We we moved to Central Florida we knew absolutely no one and nothing about the area. After getting in touch with Steven through Dave Ramsey's program, I explained that we weren't ready to buy but we just needed help with areas of town to find a rental property. Steven was one of four real estate agents who called me. He's the only person who didn't hang up the phone when I said I needed help. He stayed in contact with us for two years asking nothing in return except that when we were ready to buy, let him be our agent. He won us over before our process started but then we started looking at homes with him and word cannot express how much my wife and I appreciated his time, his recommendations, and his guidance. When it got to crunch time, he was working Saturday and Sunday to hammer out the contract. I honestly don't think we would have gotten under contract without Steven's tireless effort. His work didn't stop when we were under contract. He was involved every step of the way--something I had not experienced before. We closed in September. I cannot recommend Steven highly enough. If we ever move, he'll be my first call without hesitation.

David T.

I have used Paul for several of my real estate deals, knowledgeable and easy to reach.

Would recommend Paul to anybody who is looking to buy or sell any property in the Orlando area.

Anja Bal

Aida was wonderful to work with!

She made the whole experience so easy on me. I knew no matter what, she had my best interests at heart and was always looking out for me. She was always available to answer questions (and as a first time home buyer I had a lot) I would recommend her to everyone. Working with Aida really felt like a team.

Candice Howard

My husband and I just bought our first home.

We didn't know where or how to start or what the process would be like. We found Steven Horner via Dave Ramsey's ELP program. Steven took time to reach out to us; and when we were ready, he met with us to learn about us, what we wanted in a home, and what we needed as home buyers. He also took extra time to teach us what we could expect when buying a home at our meeting. Throughout the process, Steven was readily available day or night with advice we asked for and encouragement along the way. Everything truly does happen for a reason (just as Steven said), and we found a home that we love. Steven has knowledge and experience, but he also has a passion for keeping his clients' best interest in mind. You will not be disappointed with your home buying experience when you work with Steven and his team.

Alissa P.

Steven Horner excellent Realtor, very helpful and knowledgeable .

. closed on our new house this August 2018 and also sold our previous house too , the transition between both these houses was very smooth .... Thank You

Kaizer B.

Roland did an amazing job on searching our new home.

. One call and text away.. He help us until we finally got our new home.

Jojit C.

- A true "professional", I say this because some agents I have dealt with in the past have acted in manners which were terrible by offering shady advise, being pushy, etc.

- Very attentive to the client - Solid and sound guidance - Very knowledgeable - Flexible to work around your schedule - Not pushy I highly recommend to work with him if you need help within the area he works!

Viren G

Steven was a fantastic communicator from our first on-line exchange through to providing local information after the purchase had closed.

I was an out of state buyer, over a period of a few weeks communicating via email Steven was able to understand my needs and scheduled a great range of properties to view during a one day visit Florida. I selected a property that day, with Steven's help put together and offer and headed home, during my drive home from the airport Steve called me with the sellers counter offer, one call later the deal was done - before arrived home. Steven stayed on top of everything throughout the process and I closed using a local closer, never having to make another trip to Orlando throughout the process. It was great working with Steven and I would recommend him without any reservations at all.

Peter S.

Ben and Bart have been great agents from beginning to end.

They sold our condo in 3 days- and for more than we asked! Helped us find a new home that we . Just days from closing. Intelligent, clear- headed and helpful: Ben is the best! -Jill Lutton

"Roland did such an amazing job in showing our home.

He provided amazing service and was great every step of the process. He truly listens and had our best interest in mind. I definitely would recommend!!! Thank you!!!

Christine R.

I want to thank you Steven for everything!

! You have NO idea how awesome you have made this whole process for us. It has been such a frustrating and overwhelming experience as a first time buyer, but you took control and handled all the situations I had so well! We are truly satisfied with your services, and already recommended friends and families to you. You are great at what you do, and couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Thanks again!

Valerie P

We were first time home buyers and we were getting passed over by multiple realtors because of this issue.

My wife and myself were very discouraged about the whole home buying process to the point we were going to give up. I finally got fed up and saw a listing and thought to myself I will do everything myself, well I called the listing agent and they returned my phone call with Steven Horner. At this point mind you I was already frustrated with the process and was up front with Steven and asked him outright if he would take the time and show us houses and he agreed. Not only did he show us houses pretty much to our schedule but the one and only time he couldn't make it he had one of his partners show us a listing in case it was a house we really wanted to make a offer on. Steven did his job to the T, and educated us (he is very knowledgeable in realty). It was clear that he was going to take the time, and actually wanted to make a sale at the same time. We were not just another customer to him. He NEVER once made us to feel we were beneath him like a lot of realtors can come off. He even followed up with us once we did find the house we loved. We know we didn't make a mistake on our home purchase because he allowed us to take the time to look. Steven helped us set up everything from the home inspection to even getting documents all settled from the bank, he pretty much almost did the banking for my bank Navy Federal who dragged their feet, but Steven was very persistent in all aspects of getting us closed and in our first home.

Jeffrey C

"In for the long haul" should be the tag line on this guys business card.

I inquired about purchasing a home through Dave Ramseys website and Steven contacted me back in 2015. Well lets just say i have talked to many realtors since then and only one was willing to wait until my wife and I were financially ready in 2017! We saw many many houses with Steven and he was so patient with us as first time home buyers and pretty picky with alot of questions. He had his work cut out for him but he comes prepared and he stays connected through the whole process plus his communication with our lending specialist Michelle Palmer from Churchill Mortgage still has us amazed at the team work to take care of us. We are are thankful for his sincerity and dedication to teaching newbies or not so newbies about buying real Estate. Now that we have a home Steven stays in touch and is available if we have questions. I wouldn't hesitate to call him about selling my home or looking for another property.

Kemor K.

I highly recommend the Aridas team for all of your real estate needs in the greater Orlando area.

Larry went well above and beyond my expectations! I listed my Davenport home right as the COVID-19 situation began locally and we had an above-asking offer within 4 days! We closed right on time, in less than 4 weeks after it was listed. There’s a reason that the Aridas Team is on of Dave Ramsey’s Endorsed Local Provider list, which is where I was connected with them.

Stephen Alia

Let's start off by establishing that my wife and I were first time buyers, and were extremely critical of who we trusted to help us.

We also were moving from out-of-state to Orlando, and were still learning the areas of the city. We took Steven a list of properties we thought fit our needs/wants and from that he created a larger list that we were able to sort through and schedule properties visits. Steven took us to a "realtor pick" (we had full trust in realtor picks) that was a property that was going on the market the next day, and that ended up being the house we chose. So have fun; trust the realtor picks! If you are first time home buyer or are moving to the area from out-of-state and are looking for a trustworthy, honest realtor then look no further than Steven. He will teach and help you navigate the waterways of a purchase including negotiation and closing.

Devan B

Steven was an absolute pleasure to work with.

He is very punctual, honest and not pushy at all. I worked with him while looking for a long-distance rental property (I live in Hawaii). He was always easy to reach and quick to respond. He gave me honest feedback on properties and told me straight-up which ones were not suitable for what I was looking for. He didn't just try to sell me on everything we saw. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, hard-working agent.

Randall S.

Closing day - June 19- and we finally closed on my son’s new home.

A special heartfelt thank you to Lori Lucente-Nelson, our realtor. Lori was instrumental in helping us get this dream realized. From her immediate response to our first late night inquiry, the tireless all day Saturday that she took us from houses in three or four separate communities, from offer to contract and to closing she was absolutely supportive, professional, responsive and there for us every step of the way. Her knowledge of the area, the communities, the housing market, the comps and the entire procedure right up through and including closing was outstanding. She was immediately responsive to our every inquiry. I highly recommend her for any Real estate needs. Should I ever need the services of a realtor in the future, she is the only one I will contact.

Mary Jo, Kissimmee, FL

Very timely and kept me informed.


Steven was wonderful to work with!

I just closed on my first home about 2 weeks ago and it has been a blessing and a joy. He was professional, transparent, and always willing to answer any of my questions right away as I moved through the home buying process. I couldn't be happier with him, his work ethic, or the purchase.

Zach E

Steven's my dude.

He stuck with me through 2.5 years of my search for a house. When my preferences bounced from multi-family homes to investment properties to single-family homes and back again, Steven was right there with me. He's super patient, ridiculously accommodating, and a fantastic guide through the complicated world of real estate. Steven gave me a gift for my wedding and a phenomenal house-warming gift for the long-awaited closing day! Steven's the agent I'll call whenever I need one. He's the only agent I'll ever recommend.

Jeremy S.

Lori is amazing!

We were looking to move from Colorado down to Florida and I reached out to her about a house she had for sale. Unfortunately, that house was already sold but she offered to help us look at other homes when we came down for a few days. She listed to what we were looking for and setup many houses that fit our criteria to look at. She has a vast knowledge of the Orlando area and took us around to show us much of the location. Even though we hadn't thought about building a new house she showed us a couple of new home builders, one of which is 5 minutes from Disney World. We fell in love with the Encore at Ovations location but none of the lots they had released worked for us. She went to work and got the builder to release a lot that we are very happy with. She has been great to work with on this new home process and is willing to do whatever she can to help her clients. She is super responsive and works way late into the night. She never took more than a few minutes to respond to a text! I cannot say enough about Lori, she will help you find your new home and become a friend in the process.


After deciding to relocate from NY to Central Florida i was referred to Steven by an associate of mine who was at the time using Steven as their realtor.

Wow! This was like hitting a grand slam!! Steven couldn't of made the purchasing of our new home in Florida any easier! He was knowledgeable about the area, polite, informative, professional and a real pleasure to work with. He kept in contact with us throughout the whole process. When we flew to Florida to see some homes Steven knew exactly what we wanted and didn't waste our time showing us homes that were not in our search parameter. Steven also referred us to a mortgage company, insurance agent and home inspector which just made the purchase of our new home so much easier. I could go on and on about Steven as he is just that good! If your looking to buy or sell a home in Central Florida give Steven a call, you won't regret it!

Tom P.

Having had to sell nearly 200 homes so far across the country in the last few years, I can honestly say working with Larry and Carmen has been a breath of fresh air to say the least.

Very accommodating, very professional, extremely knowledgeable and cordial to boot. I have enjoyed working with them and plan on continuing to work with them on the next batch of homes.

Danny Lavergne

We have officially closed on our first home and we can't thank Steven enough!

As first time home buyers, Steven took the time to educate us and answer any and all questions we had. From start to finish the process was extremely smooth and easy. We were challenged with a deadline and I'm pleased to say we've closed with time to spare! We are so excited about our new home and look forward to working with Steven again!

Morgan S.

It was a pleasure working the Aridas team!

They were very attentive and made sure that we were taken care of every step of the way.

Seve & Suzanne Hewitt

10/10 recommended, helped me in the process of buying and selling and all the processes were easy with her, she was available at all times and days, very Informative with every step that takes place.

Definitely contacting her again if need be. Thank you Aida for everything!!

Gilvian Vazquez

Excellent Service from beginning to end, Aida helps us with the sale of our property and also help us in the search and buying process for our new home!

! She spent a full day driving us around the communities and areas we were interested in buying and after finding the right community she help us through the entire buying process making sure that everything was done the right way. She was always available for us to guide us and answer all the questions we had. I will strongly recommend using her services if you are in the process of buying a home and need somebody that you can trust and that will makes your buy or sale of a home a more pleasant experience!!!

Victor Rodriguez

We've closed on two home purchases now with Steven, and he's been excellent to work with both times.

He's very attentive, approachable, and willing to work within our schedule. We would absolutely go back to him in the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Orlando area.

Bryan Thiry

Best realtors we've worked with -- period.

Professional, thorough and fun to work with. Larry helped us find the house we both needed and wanted, talking us through the process of relocating from another state and keeping us on an even keel when the selling agent in our home state dropped the ball during the sale of our house. They actually listen to what you say, keep you informed at every step of the process and advocate on your behalf. Everything you want in a realty team!

Tina Riemer

Ben Stern and his team is absolutely fantastic.

Very organized, well informed and meticulous. He was very interested in helping us out and doing whatever was required. I feel like Ben listened and everything went absolutely smoothly. He’s a fun person to work with and it was an overall amazing experience.

Annetta Correia

She is very hardworking and willing to work with you until she gets you the house of your dreams!


Melissa Jeans

Ben was amazing!

He listened to my very specific requirements and came through in full on all. Very knowledgeable, professional and dedicated. The process was very smooth from start to finish. He was very helpful with every fine detail. Ben was very personable and a great guy. He was honestly more of a friend than a real estate agent. Exceptional!

Mark Correia

Lori is an excellent agent.

We knew nothing about the area and she took the time to show us around and give us plenty of info. She took great care to make sure we were staying within our budget and even negotiated a cheaper price for our new lot. You will not find a harder working agent than Lori.

Brianna, Winter Garden, FL

I recently purchased a townhouse with the help of Steven and he was absolutely wonderful to work with.

Steven helped at every step of the way from my initial search on until after the closing. I found him to be knowledgeable, responsive, and very professional. If you are considering purchasing residential real estate in the Central Florida area I would highly recommend working with Steven.

Bryan A.

As a Family planning to relocate from the Cold New England Weather to the Warm Winter Garden Florida Weather, we prayed that God gives us a Realtor that would be Truthful, Honest, Patient, Professional, Knowledgable and most of all Informed of the Area.

Roland and Mary matched exactly what our prayer was and after working tirelessly with us, within four days they managed to help us identify a home that matched our dream home. I highly recommend these two Super Realtors. Their level of professionalism is outstanding. God bless you guys.

Dedan C. Nashua, NH

I have never been happier with a realtor than I was with Ro + MARY Real Estate Service.

Roland and Mary were so efficient and professional in the sale of our house and helping find our forever home, that they made you feel as if you have known them your whole life. We didn’t have to worry about anything for Roland was always there every step of the way and made us feel as if we were his only clients. They kept us up to date throughout the entire process of selling and buying a home which made the move so much easier. Roland and Mary were able to put our house on the Market on a Friday and by that Sunday (3 Days) we had 5 offers and under contract to sell. The good thing about this team is they were so patient with us when trying to find our new home and that they never pressured us to look at something that we didn’t like just to earn a paycheck. After finding our new home they continued to be there for us every moment and even for a couple of weeks after the purchase to see if they could help us in any way. I recommend that if anyone is considering to either sell or buy a home in the Central Florida Area to definitely go with RO + MARY. Thanks again for all your hard work as I know we probably weren’t the easiest clients to work with.

Ryan N.

They are there for you in all your transactions and if you have a question about your transaction they will get you an answer.

Bhimsen Family

Steven is a very personable guy that worked very hard to find the right property for us.

We were very pleased with the variety of properties he found for us to look at. He worked tirelessly to please us, and we would definitely hire him again!

Gary V.

The Aridas Team are excellent.

Even during the pandemic, they continued to promote our home. Each week we received updates on number of showings and statistics on comments from viewers.


We had a very particular list for the property we were seeking & there weren't very many that were on that list.

Steven was very patient, listened & most importantly, delivered. We climbed through barns, walked through pastures & saw some wonderful properties we couldn't have uncovered on our own. We're now in our dream house, thankful for his continued efforts & complete professionalism. I'd recommend him to anyone, whether you know what you're after, or need some expert guidance. Thanks again for everything - Rebecca Tindol-Brown

Rebecca B

Thanks to Larry’s expertise and guidance in preparation for the sale, our home sold for over list price less than 24 hours after listing!

Devon Johnson

She Understood What I Wanted!

I met Lori at an open house that she had. We talked and I felt she really understood what I was looking for and would be the best person to sell my house. Lori helped me to find the house that I eventually bought and she also sold my house. She was patient and understanding throughout the process, which was stressful at times. We have become good friends because of this experience and I have great respect for Lori and her expertise.

Linda O. - Winter Garden, FL

We started communicating with Larry Aridas in February via phone & email about purchasing a home in the Orlando area.

We had planned a visit in April, but then Covid hit & we had to postpone our visit. We stayed in contact with them, compiling a wish list of over 50 homes. It became clear that we would be able to fly in to visit some of the homes on our wish list in mid-June. We then refined our list with the help of The Aridas Team down to 35 homes to visit while we were there. Larry blocked out a major portion of 3 days to take us to each of these homes & was nothing but courteous, professional, patient & helpful. When we narrowed our choices down to a final 3, Larry took us back to each for a more thorough visit. We selected one, Larry helped us write a contract, negotiate through some details & we were able get a contract signed while we returned to Colorado. Larry helped us through the inspection phase & further negotiations that occurred as a result of the inspection. We were able to keep our closing timeline of July 17th due to The Aridas Team's efforts. We recognize that we asked a lot of Larry & his team due to the # of homes we considered & actually visited. This process took 5 months to complete & we appreciate The Aridas Team's dedication to helping us make this happen. We would recommend anyone looking for Real Estate in the Orlando area to contact The Aridas Team. I am confident that you will be as happy as we are with their efforts. Alan & Linda Drake - Colorado & now happy home owners in Reunion, Florida

Alan and Linda Drake

I found the perfect home!

Lori was engaged from the start. From day one Lori had turned into an investigative researcher in my quest for a home. She had the ability to quickly identify what I was looking for and use her talents to generate a list of excellent homes within hours. Whenever we would attend a viewing her investigative instinct didn’t stop and she could quickly identify if the home was or was not exactly what I was looking for – even if I didn’t immediately see it for myself. Lori became an indispensable resource in my search for a home, and a good friend and mentor. With her help I was able to find the perfect home. Thank you Lori!

Greg R. - Orlando, FL

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Roland Barcenilla, for both selling our home and buying our new home.

After a few short weeks of listing our home, we received several offers. Throughout the negotiations and closing Roland was there to quickly handle any issues. When it came time to purchase our new home, Roland was very knowledgeable of the surrounding area. From the first day, Roland was very responsive and had great suggestions for homes based on what we were looking for. He found the perfect home for us! I would highly recommend Roland to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Katherine W.

Paul Donovan went above and beyond to make our home purchase a pleasant experience.

I would highly recommend him to anyone and would use his services again for future purchases


Ben & Bart made buying a house such a breeze!

Both of them are professional and experienced. Thanks to them, we were able to move into our new construction home in less than 3 months. My husband and I are so happy with our new house. Thanks to Ben and Bart my wife and I were able to obtain our first home they were great to us true professionals in the field.

Leo & Stephanie Balmaseda

5 stars is not a high enough review for Steven.

He works tirelessly to serve all of his clients with prompt response and a constant smile. My husband and I work for close to 6 months with Steven, looking at properties, putting in offers until we finally found the house of our dreams.

My wife and I had been looking for a home in the Orlando area for a couple of years before we met Steven through the Dave Ramsey program.

We can not sing his praises enough. Not only is Steven knowledgeable and understanding but he is extremely efficient, patient and a true gentleman. We are delighted with our new home and consider Steven to be a most valued new friend. We would and will recommend him to anyone who is in need of the help of an outstanding realty professional.

Tim H.

We chose the Aridas Team over several other realtors in the Orlando area, and we're very glad we did.

Our purchase transaction took several unpleasant turns, and Larry held his ground in getting the best outcome on our behalf, and in making sure we were treated well along the way. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Aridas Team for someone's real estate needs.

Steven Horner is the absolute Best!

! Our best friend in Florida referred us to him because of their great buying experience with him. He is very professional and punctual . He worked very hard for us. He was always available to show us homes and answer any questions we had. We lived in New York and he helped us every step of the way until we got the house we wanted in the school district and zip code we wanted. He is a great negotiator, a good listener and has the ability to make things happen quickly. His attention to detail is meticulous. Thank you Steven for making our dreams a reality!

Marylou M.

Shelley’s local neighborhood knowledge and knowledge of school districting is invaluable.

We moved from Massachusetts with three school aged children and had a lot of questions about schools and growth. Also coming from out of state we had very little knowledge about the different communities and it all seemed overwhelming at the start. Shelley listened to our needs and was able to point us in the direction of possible areas and communities that met our needs. In the end she helped us find and secure our dream home in our dream community at a price we could afford. We can’t thank her enough!

Steven was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process, from our first conversation to purchasing my home.

I was referred to Steven from a good friend of mine who also had an excellent experience and have been very happy with everything. This was my first time purchasing a home, so I wasn't sure exactly how everything worked or the general process of things, but Steven was completely honest, friendly and treated you like a friend. When we toured each of the properties, Steven was very knowledgeable of everything, including the neighborhood - when I had a few questions about the HOA and overall process. Once I was ready to apply for the mortgage, Steven was there for any questions I had as well which was great. When it came time to complete the closing, I received a few gifts for the new house including a custom-made sign which came out awesome. I'm looking forward to hanging it up in my new home soon. Overall, if you're looking for a highly professional, detailed and honest realtor, I would highly recommend giving Steven a call - you will not be disappointed.

Ben and his team did an amazing job in the selling and marketing of our former home.

From marketing to area research, he was a consummate professional throughout the selling and closing process. Our home was sold within four days of being placed on the market for sale. Ben was completely accessible and quick to respond to any questions or concerns during the sales of our home. Very professional and great to work with!!! GREAT WORK BEN! I HIGHLY recommend Ben at RE/MAX.

Rob Wilson

The Aridas Team is the most prepared and professional sales team I have ever worked with and will continue to work with into our future.

Dan Heter

Steven's fantastic ratings led me to contact him and ask him for help to relocate from Idaho to Florida.

I was not disappointed! He met my husband and I on a Saturday and was so patient and professional. He then set up a portal and continued to send me listings of homes that fit my criteria. What most impressed me was his positive attitude and that he was "at my service" if I had any questions. Steven responded to every email, text and phone call in record time and always provided thorough and meaningful responses. I asked him lots of "nit-picky" questions and he was always willing to research and find the answer. Our experience with Steven was top notch and we are super grateful for his expertise!

Andrea I.

So yes, I was that home buyer who randomly decided to sell my house and buy new construction which had to close by EOY in October.

My house was no where near ready to be put on the market and I had an incredibly tight timeline along with various challenges along the way with the other parties representation. Though it came down to literally the last day of the year, Steven made it happen. He came highly recommended from a friend and now I know why.


Steven is AMAZING!

! If you choose to work with him, you won't regret it!! Buying a home is a huge deal. it's a huge investment and also have to fit the family's lifestyle and budget. I was very nervous to go through this process as it's our first home but once I met Steven, it was a breeze. The communication was AMAZING !! Whether it was with me or my lender or both, he gets the job done. I didn't have to chase him down and there are realtors who doesn't seem to know their clients name. ( trust me, I met a few before Steven) . He answer his phone, if you miss him, he calls back quickly, very kind, honest and trusting. I'm grateful to have had Steven walk us through everything. It's important to have a realtor who's compassionate, well communicated, fast, and respected every bit of my dollar especially since I wasn't in the higher market homes. Steven was all of that and more. Thanks Steven!! We truly appreciate you. Thank you so much for your professionalism, compassion, quickness, being so thorough with explaining the steps, just going above and beyond. You really made this seem like a walk in the park! Thank for everything! We are loving our new home!

Pharah D.

Steven was an incredible agent for us - we had an uncertain time frame, and were pretty particular on what we were looking for.

He demonstrated incredible patience over the last year, and was very accommodating when there were only certain days we were able to look at potential properties. There was never any pressure - he was a great listener - and very patient. As we narrowed it down, he gathered all of the information we were looking for those properties and connected us with very helpful resources. In the end, there were a few unexpected hiccups with the closing on the sellers' side, and Steven stayed very focused and persistent, advocating for us, and in the end, made the transaction happen. We are very thankful to Steven for all of his incredible efforts on helping us purchase our new home!

Kent K.

Larry & The Aridas Team did a wonderful job assisting my partner & I in finding our first home.

Not only was Larry patient, honest, & helpful, but he was extremely genuine & truly wanted the best for us. We had lots of questions & viewed a plethora of options & Larry took his time with us. We ended up going with a new build that took an additional 6 months and he was there from start to finish guiding us throughout the process. Highly recommend this team & will seek him out for any future home purchases. Thank you for everything!

Valerie Bechara

I feel fortunate having worked with Steven on purchasing my first investment property.

He took me seriously the first time I called and within a few hours I had some potential properties to look at. Since I live out of state, Steven gladly went to view several properties for me and sent me detailed videos so I was able to walk them through as if I was actually there. He was extremely patient with me, answering my many questions and never once made me feel like I'm wasting his time. I was amazed how he negotiated with the sellers when things came up during the inspection and appraisal process which would not have crossed my mind. Steven is your guy if you need an agent in Central Florida!

Rachel P.

Going beyond the call of duty Lori is the best realtor that we have come in contact with.

She is a very patient person who looks and tries everything in her power that will help her client, stays up to do paper work for her clients, so they may obtain the best result in the process of purchasing a home. She is willing to go beyond the call of duty for the customer’s success. Thank you again Lori.

Gregory S. - Orlando, FL

Many thanks to Steve Horner, real estate agent extraordinaire!

Outstanding service, knowledge and perseverance . Steve listens and knows the market so there is no time wasted. We moved to Orlando from out of state and Steve did an outstanding job of preparing listings of the homes he knew we would be interested in seeing. Nothing was ever to much; we knew when we decided on our home it was the right one for us. You can't imagine what it means, especially when you are moving from out of town, to have Steve working for you and protecting your interests. From contract to settlement, Steve is a master negotiator and has all the best contacts who help get you into your new home with the assurance that all inspections and repairs are done right and are cost effective. Call Steve and you will know what a pleasure it is to know you're working with the best. Randi Cross Brash Sand Lake Point

Randi & Steve C

Fantastic experience.

We had very specific criteria for our new home and so it it took us a year to find what we wanted. Steven was so patient and easy going through the whole process. We looked at so many houses and never felt like it was an inconvenience or felt any pressure to make a decision. We thought we wanted one house, put an offer, changed our minds, he didn't flinch, "No Problem!". Had some hiccups with inspection issues and financing/closing dates on the house we eventually bought "No Problem!". We were so glad to have him help us navigate through all the various issues. Talked to friends and co-workers who had awful realtor experiences, not us! Highly reccomended. A+

We had a great experience with Roland and Mary.

We were looking to relocate from California to Florida and were introduced to this dynamic duo through a family friend. We went out a couple of times with Roland & Mary and through the process they got to know what we wanted. They provided sound advice and were very patient with us. On our last day of house hunting, Roland said that he had a "wild card" in his back pocket... and while he acknowledged that it was a tad over our price range and out of the area that we were looking for... he secretly knew that we would love it, and we did! Throughout our 45-day escrow period, Roland was very attentive to detail and was on top of every mini deadline that we had to hit. He immediately got the inspection going, introduced us to his go-to loan agents, and negotiated for the sellers to cover items that were uncovered during inspection. Overall it was smooth process and we are extremely grateful to have had Roland and his team on our side!

Ella F.

As first time homeowners, my wife and I were very nervous about having to move from Austin, TX to Clermont, FL in a very small window of time.

We only had one weekend to see some houses and Steven managed to get us into ELEVEN houses in one day. We were tired, but also delighted. After making an offer on a house, a bank that will remain nameless (Regions) started dragging their feet on submitting our final paperwork. Steven makes one phone call and all of a sudden everything is back on track. Steven made our home-buying experience painless and really went above and beyond to ease the worried minds of nervous homebuyers like us. Plus he donates a portion of every sale to help animals. What a guy! Thanks Steven for all you do.

Luke H.

Fantastic team!

Everything was seamless from start to finish. I highly recommend The Aridas Team.

Chris Coates

"Roland and Mary are one of the best Realtors I have ever worked with.

She works hard to get her clients the best deal possible. I would definitely recommend Mary to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Orlando area."

Paul B. Windermere, Orlando, FL

Excellent team!

Helped me through the ins-and-outs of buying a new construction home. They were so helpful, easy to work with, and always there for me. Could not have asked for a better experience!

Teri Dwinell

Larry did an outstanding job selling our house.

It had 2 offers on the1st day listed. Larry carried himself very professionally and was helpful in navigating the negotiations with the sellers. He also conducted the closing smoothly and efficiently. Could not have asked for a better selling experience.

Patricia and Michael VonFricken

Ben has been my real estate broker for last few months.

He is knowledgeable, honest, fun and extremely thorough. Ben is endlessly patient and generous with his time. He is just type of a person you need when looking for new home. I would recommend him highly!

Sam Vaziri

Steven Horner is the real estate agent for you!

My wife and I had a rather selective list regarding neighborhoods, and Steven had no problem setting up a custom search engine designed just for us. Even if things didn't work out for a particular home, Steven was always extremely helpful in finding the next home for us and was available whenever we had any questions. He is knowledgeable in all aspects of the home buying process and has quality recommendations for any area of expertise you may need. A+

Bryan P.

From the very first day, Larry has been super!

He was always available and made sure to find what we were looking for.

Rick Foster

Steven and his team are amazing!

This is my second purchase with Steven and throughout both, Steven has been very responsive, punctual, informative, and extremely professional. I've heard nightmare stories that other buyers go through and that has yet to be the case. All of Steven's references are too notch as well. It goes without saying that I will be using Steven and his team on all future real estate transactions.

Ron E

I want to thank you Steven for everything!

! You have NO idea how awesome you have made this whole process for us. It has been such a frustrating and overwhelming experience as a first time buyer, but you took control and handled all the situations I had so well! We are truly satisfied with your services, and already recommended friends and families to you. You are great at what you do, and couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Thanks again!

Valerie P.

So happy that I was introduced to the Aridas team.

Larry was accommodating and was always available for questions and info. This was my first buying experience and he reallly walked me through every step and made the whole process incredibly smooth. I will be using the Aridas team for all my future purchases in the Orlando area!

Daniel P.

Steven is absolutely incredible.

He provided us with the absolute best realty experience we have ever had. He was very patient with us, incredibly accommodating to our changing opinions of what home we wanted and what area we were interested in, and he was always available for our questions and concerns. Thanks to Steven and his help we are now living in our dream home in our dream neighborhood, and the entire process went better than we ever thought possible. Hopefully we never have to move again, but if we do the first phone call we will make is to Steven!

Aida helped me to buy our house back in 2016, she was super accommodating with our schedules, preferences, price ranges, never pushed us, always provided unbiased feedback, and continued to build our relationship even after.

Whenever I can buy another home, I will certainly do it with Aida!

Juliette Fresh

We would give Brenda our highest recommendation.

Brenda’s unique talent set was invaluable to us. She knows the Orlando real estate market inside out and everybody involved in it. She took the time to understand our needs; As a result, she was able to find the perfect home for us and sold our home in a very short time. During negotiations, she gave valuable advice that we would never have considered. She exceeded our expectations and her expertise and advice saved us a significant amount of money. Brenda is extremely hard working and a tenacious negotiator. We would describe her as fiercely loyal to her clients. She is also one of the most positive, upbeat people we have ever met, which makes working with her a true pleasure. Khan Family

Paul is the best real estate agent I've ever had and found us our dream home.

Chris Allen

We've closed on two home purchases now with Steven, and he's been excellent to work with both times.

He's very attentive, approachable, and willing to work within our schedule. We would absolutely go back to him in the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Orlando area

Bryan T.

Larry was just the best.

We have dealt with other realtors in the past that were pushy, annoying and not patient at all. Larry was understanding, hard worker, patient and over everything, he was just a great guy to work with. We will and we have been strongly recommending him.

Fernando and Christina

Aida is so caring and wonderful.

She will go above and beyond to help you find your dream home. So blessed to call her my realtor!

Alex Ballester

Lori is the ultimate agent.

Professional, extremely knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate. She was sensitive to my family’s needs and made things happen. From the preparing the house to show all the way through closing signature, Lori was right by my side, making it absolutely effortless for me. I hands down recommended Lori if you are looking to buy or sell your home.

Nicole H., Gotha, FL

Steven was always professional and on time, ready to take us to see houses multiple times if needed and he also was great about warning us to not waste our time when he knew a house wouldn't fit our needs.

As a mom with 4 kids I didn't have time to waste so I appreciated his advice. And not all Realtors will help you negotiate through a foreclosure because there's a lot of extra junk to deal with and extended times but Steven was great. We're so happy in our new home and I give him some credit for that.

Amanda D.

Brenda has assisted us with multiple home purchases and selling our own home.

She's quick, and stays on top of everything throughout the whole process. She's always available when you need her and will do whatever is needed to make the home search easy!

Danielle Kasch

Working with them made selling my house extremely stress free, Larry went above and beyond - a good ambassador for the Realty profession.

Jaqueline Johnson

Aida is patient, flexible (with time and days), readily available, on time, can be trusted, highly knowledgeable (with the entire process of buying a home), attentive to details, extremely professional and a thoughtful professional Real Estate Agent.

Considering this COVID-19 epidemic, Aida was ready and committed to help. I have been looking for a property for about three ½ years, and I have worked with many Real Estate Agents (about five). Aida inarguably stands out from all. She will advocate for you till the end and truly cares about her client. Even after closing, she is still available. All in all, Aida is a marvelous and stupendous Real Estate Agent.

Javier C.

I was so happy that I found Steven as my agent.

For my 1st time buyer experience, Steven was communicating with me at all times since the 1st day a found him until my new construction closing day. He help me throughout the whole purchase process. In addition, he clarified all my questions and concerns. I did not have any delays with my closing date. He is awesome, amazing and professional realtor. He did an amazing job.

Daren Wheeler

Paul is a true professional in the real estate industry.

We met him at an open house; he made a great first impression to both of us and he was very interested in not just selling us a house, but selling us our perfect dream home. And that he did. He was patient with us, sent us many listings and was always available to take us to go see houses ASAP. We will forever be grateful for Paul, and we also feel that we have gained a true friendship out of Paul. We will recommend him to any friends/family that we have looking to buy/sell property. Cheers Paul! Keep up the great work!

Todd Coy & Rachel Roque

Steven Horner is truly the best real estate broker we've ever worked with.

We needed to find a house in the Orlando area, but had no idea where to start so we Googled it. Steven's name popped up and we decided to give him a call. We hit it off right away. It was the best decision we could have made. We told him what we wanted and he began sending us matching listings that day & continued to constantly send us properties that matched our criteria as they became available. We marked the ones we wanted to see and he set them up. We flew from Texas to secure a house. We had one week, but it only took 2 days to find the perfect house for us because Steven did his homework & was so prepared. He showed us around and told us about different areas. His knowledge was invaluable and his service was impeccable. He was not only an excellent broker but a great person. We were so blessed and could not have gone through this process without him!

Joanie T.

Steven is truly an amazing realtor!

I am a first-time homeowner and he made the process effortless! I have worked with him for NINE months looking for the perfect home! Throughout the entire process, he has been extremely patient, reliable, and knowledgable. I could always contact him via text, email, and phone call with all my MANY questions. I have met quite a few realtors and none as professional as Steven! He was able to negotiate such a tremendous closing cost deal that helped SAVED me a ton of money! I am forever blessed to have worked with him and will ALWAYS refer for him to any and everyone!
