A lifelong resident of NWI, Steve joined his wife, Lisa Thompson, in 2013 to create the Lisa Thompson Group. Steve’s background in construction, including residential new home construction, helps him uniquely guide clients through the home buying and selling process. His strong work ethic, drive in negotiations, & charismatic personality, put clients at ease and drive results for them!
Steve started as The Team’s lead buyer specialist, leading over 100 buyer controlled sales to closing each year. Steve has now moved into the role as a listing specialist, while continuing to assist Buyers. After watching his wife run her business for many years before joining her, Steve knew the way to become a successful agent was to add value to his clients. To accomplish this he needed to know the market better than anyone else. Guiding a high volume of clients through the home buying process, he did just this and is regarded as a true expert in the NWI Realtor Community.
He focused on creating a network of contractors, lenders, surveyors, appraisers, and Title reps, to assist in overcoming any obstacle that may arise during a transaction.
Prior to becoming a Realtor, Steve was a bricklayer and ran projects such as the Modern Wing Addition at the Art Institute of Chicago and Rush University Medical Center. He competed in the SpecMix 500 National Bricklayer Competition several times, taking home the Craftsman Award the year he actually became a Realtor.
Steve’s main focus in life has always been his girls, Alexis and Tatum, who are now young adults. Alexis recently graduated from the University of Indianapolis and now lives in Ohio working in her field as an Athletic Trainer. Tatum attends Indiana University in Bloomington. ‘His girls’ are truly his best friends (along with Diesel, the Yorkie). Steve is an avid motor cross fan and rider. He enjoys nothing more than loading up his truck with his girls and heading off to the track, as Lisa is in the background yelling ‘BE CAREFUL. You are not a teenager anymore!’ Steve is definitely young at heart and in mind and spirit, which keeps him driven to always conquer more.
Steve and Lisa have acquired several properties in the Highland area throughout the past few years and have personally rehabbed the properties to make them exceptional homes for lucky buyers. Steve does most of the work himself, while Lisa picks out the finishes, which usually blows his budget. Steve will also be the general contractor for their personal ‘dream home,’ which has been a shared vision over years of design and redesign.
