Steve Markham grew up in the United States and Mexico. He joined Kuper Sotheby's International Realty to pursue a career in Real Estate after attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. and working for high profile companies such as The World Bank, The Nature Conservancy and USAA. Steve has a B.S. in International Economics and has been involved in multiple web marketing projects. This has equipped him with an excellent understanding of how to integrate his financial and negotiating expertise in selling or finding your next house, condo, or investment property.
Steve has an impressive career as a realtor. His first year he received the Rookie of the Year Award with over 7 million dollars in sales. In his second year he formed a team with Barbara Finch one of San Antonio's top 25 realtors for over 30 years. And in his third year he was named a vice president due to his multi-million dollar sales volume. Over 65% of his business comes from referrals from former clients.
Steve's professional background, cultural sensitivity and market awareness allow him to help both local and international clients with equal expertise and dedication. He is fluent in English, Spanish, French and Italian. Part of his approach and commitment is to help connect his clients to the communities and activities that interests them in San Antonio. His knowledge about this historic city comes in part from volunteering at The McNay Art Museum and other local non-profit organizations.
One of Steve's passions is dog rescue and he takes into consideration your non-human family member's needs when helping you find your next home. In addition to helping dogs, and the occasional cat, his interests also include horseback riding (hunter/jumper), scuba diving, skiing and finding the elusive perfect Oaxacan mole dishes in the San Antonio restaurant scene.

I come from a personal and professional international background so I have the expertise to market your house in San Antonio, Austin, the east/west coasts, Mexico...and the world.
I'ts an honor and a serious responsibility to help someone find their next home. I'm honored when someone allows me to help them in this very personal process. I particularly enjoy working with first-time home buyers. The price point is immaterial but the experience is wonderful.
Dogs and very very good mole. And finding a really nice tie or shoes at 75% off.
I cannot say enough for all of the hard work and kindness provided by Steve Markham and Kuper Southeby's Realty in San Antonio for my recent home purchase. When I was searching for a home, I had a limited amount of time and an unusual set of circumstances. I was living out of state, the closing was going to be complicated and I needed to work with a realtor who had meticulous attention to detail. I had purchased and sold several homes previously, arrived in Texas with my laptop and a long list of houses to see that I prepared before I met him. Steve was great in helping me with the sorting process as well as introducing properties otherwise inaccessible to me. At the end of the process, Steve was there with my 19 year old son who had Power of Attorney to close on the house for me. I'm now settled in the home with my son and we are thrilled to have twice the amount of property we thought we would own in a turn-key home, in a friendly neighborhood. I also want to add that my son and I are dog lovers and we were impressed by Steve's kindness and humanity when he agreed to participate in a spontaneous rescue. We saw 2 dogs in 100 degree heat, near heavy traffic, and within 10 minutes, we had them in the back of his (new with temporary plates on) Mercedes en route to a vet to get scanned for a microchip and returned to their owner. Working with professionals is great, but working with good, kind people who are professionals is priceless.

We strongly recommend Steve Markham as a real estate agent. We were first time buyers and Steve made the process practically stress free. He helped us make a final decision and stuck with us right through closing. He is a “people person” who makes the client comfortable and his main concern is customer satisfaction. He is muy amable.

My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have Steve as our agent. His warm personality and thoughtful approach put us at ease. He was very committed to understanding our top needs and wants in a home and developed a search strategy tailored for us since we were new to San Antonio. Getting into the competitive housing market to buy our first home in a new city was an intimidating prospect. Steve expertly navigated us through every step, helping us learn about the different neighborhoods, enabling us to find exactly what we were looking for, staying within our budget, and helping us to close with ease. With Steve, it was like we were visiting houses with a friend that just happened to really know his stuff about the San Antonio real estate market. He always had our best interest in mind, including suggesting other options when he thought we could find a better match. Once we found the house we wanted, Steve worked magic with helping prepare the offer to make it as compelling as possible. It worked too, as we successfully beat out several competitors. Even after we got the keys, Steve was dedicated to making sure we were safe and comfortable in our new home. Undoubtedly, we'd work with him for any future real estate needs.

Steve is knowledgeable, professional and fun to work with. He understood our needs and made us feel valued as clients. I was traveling quite a bit for work, selling house in Houston, and relocating from Houston to San Antonio and planning a wedding. My fiancé, at the time, and my now husband, was also very busy on some big projects. Steve was able to accommodate our limited time in seeing homes and made the process a pleasurable one. In working with him, we became friends. Of course, he and his husband were invited to our wedding! We were very pleased with the way our transaction was handled. My husband and I would recommend him to our friends and colleagues and would use him in the future.
