Cutler Real Estate asked Steve a few questions so you can get to know him better, and here are Steve's replies.

2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?

I've been involved in the real estate industry from a very young age as my family owned their brokerage, Merkle Realty, which my father Norman founded in 1964. I started filing paperwork, inputting listings and installing signs for my father. His dedication and professionalism showed me that Realtors play a satisfying role in helping people achieve the American Dream of Homeownership! I enjoy helping clients find their special place in a community.

3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?

Wadsworth, OH. It's a great area conveniently located within an easy commute to Akron or Cleveland. Great school system with new facilities, community owned utilities, a great mix of beautiful older and newer homes as well as a charming downtown area make Wadsworth a great place to live!

4. How do you spend your free time?

Boating with my family!

5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?

  1. My Bible
  2. Boat
  3. Road bike

Good listener helpful and patient.
