Steve Peterson

Steve is an experienced REALTOR®, serving the Cedar Rapids area since 1975.  In 1988 he became the Broker-Owner of RE/MAX Associates, aspiring to try a new approach to the real estate business.  This same enthusiasm and excitement about Real Estate carries over into all aspects of Steve's life.

He and his wife Joanne spend their free time sailing, visiting their children and grandchildren, and enjoying "Sailor" their Shih-Tzu.

Steve's upbeat attitude and experience as Broker give clients a benefit as to what they can expect, and if there are hiccups, how they can be maneuvered.

Judy Avenson
