Steven was a pleasure to work with! The entire process was way less stressful than we anticipated, and Steve's professionalism contributed to that a lot. Starting from the first contact via Zillow, all the way to closing day, Steve guided us through the different stages and was very helpful. We'd definitely recommend him!

The best!! So highly recommended! This is the second time we’ve used Steven for a purchase. He is very knowledgeable, honest and hard working! He knows the area very well, we couldn’t ask for a better experience.

Great experience working with Steven -- he's a real professional, possessing both throughout knowledge of the process and patience, topped with his very positive attitude. We'll definitely be recommending him to other buyers!

From conception, Steve was the consummate professional. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns regarding the sale of our home. We put total faith and confidence in him as our new and 2nd realtor. Since that day, he has not skipped a beat. The comfort of knowing that he stood by his word made the process go a little smoother in light of the delays he had no control of. He walked the walk and talked the talk. The result was the sale of our home as we had expected. He is an asset to the Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Company. We wish him well with his career.

Steve was our broker for a home purchase in 2018 and we could not have asked for a better broker. We appreciated the time and effort he took early on to get to know us and learn our preferences in order to match us with the perfect home. Throughout the process Steve was there every step of the way to answer any questions we had, and is prompt with his responses. He is extremely honest and we truly felt he was looking out for our best interests. Most importantly, Steve is overall just a very pleasant person to work with. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a broker.

You will not find a better real estate agent. Ever. Anywhere. Period. Especially if you are new to the area as we are/were, Steven is really great at introducing new folks to the Catskills, providing tips and tricks, wonderful referrals for attorneys, contractors, etc... We were first time home buyers too and he was totally cool and patient in answering all our questions, a few times over I'm sure! I highly recommend!

Steven was incredible in helping us find and purchase a home. Available, proactive, full of knowledge and really advocated on our behalf. Will work with him again!

Go with Steve. I had a property that was inexpensive compared to many of Steve’s other listings. Although it was an odd property Steve found a buyer on the very first day. When things got complicated Steve was always right there to give advice and shepherd me through the process. Highly recommmeded. Smart. Hard working. Diligent. Can I repeat myself? Go with Steve.

I write this from the house of my dreams. We are here because of Steve. He was recommended by our dearest friends, and right away we knew he was the guy for us. Prior to that point we had met with two other realtors and we held out hope we’d find our guy. We did! Mr Steve Cohen. I recommend him not only because of his professional expertise, his invaluable knowledge of the lay of the land, or the fact that when the time came he didn’t hesitate to go to bat for us as often as was necessary, but also because his warmth and his generosity are infectious. No question was too trivial, no hour of the day off-limits.

Buying a home is an intense and emotional process. It’s vital to have someone as amazing as Steve in your corner. There are many realtors out there but none as knowledgeable, as personable, or as down to earth as Steve. We got lucky. You will too.

We could not have asked for a better agent! From our first meeting, Steven understood what we wanted and helped us find our dream home. He was always a phone call away and was very knowledgeable. He was able to negotiate the perfect price and helped us get into our new home quickly!

Chrissy Marie 
Wawarsing, NY 


Steve is a very professional, very personable choice for an agent. From our initial meeting, it was very evident that Steve's agenda included attaining a complete understanding of our goals. During our very efficient and timely sale process, Steve's attention to our questions, concerns, and needs were always attended to. His response time rarely went past an hour, and he was sure to attain whatever we asked of him. For us a sellers, the most important aspect for us was of course, to make a sale. Steve produced a buyer within two weeks, and we closed on our house exact to the timeline we told Steve we needed. Thank you Steve!

Maureen Milasi

Steve sold our house in 3 days! We realize it was the current market that influenced the quick sale, but Steve understood how to handle the multiple bids and realize the best offer to our best advantage.
His knowledge and guidance enabled us to complete the sale with confidence.

Howard and Paula Kagan

Steve really knows the area and really knows real estate.  He sincerely listens to your dreams and goals, as well as practical concerns and considerations. Steve is always accessible and thoughtful, great at explaining things, and an expert at solving challenging issues. He has a terrific perspective on when to be a tough negotiator, and when to craft a creative solution. His experience and tenacity are incredible assets. Steve will find you what you want and get the deal done!

 When we were first in the market of buying a home upstate, we didn't really know where to begin. Luckily, we were referred to Steven Cohen by 2 of our good friends that had also been looking for property in the Catskill region. When we first met Steven, he was a breath of fresh air. Real, compassionate, listened to what we wanted, easy to get along with, and knew his stuff. After a few months of looking without much luck, we got an urgent call from Steven to literally "drop what we were doing and come see this home!" We listened, and drove the 2 hours on a Sunday to see what is now, our new home. Steven was spot on with delivering what we wanted, and it even happened to be in our budget. Although buying a home can be stressful as hell, Steven was able to keep up with our demands and fought for us every step of the way. He is truly a godsent when it comes to buying a home in Upstate New York. We closed on our beautiful home December 17th, 2014. We can't thank him and his team enough for going through this process with us and ultimately getting us what we wanted. Thank you Steven! We can't wait to build that garden in your honor!

Nancy and I would like to thank Steve again for the outstanding piece of work he did in the sale of our home. We do appreciate his honesty and frankness when he mapped out the various selling prices and the potential associated waiting times for a sale. As many agents do, he could have just told us what we wanted to hear in order to get the contract. He didn’t do that and we are grateful for that. We got the sale within his projected window at the price we agreed was achievable.

When we did get the binder, his negotiation skills got us the best price for the house with the best of all options.  There’s no doubt in our mind, given that the buyers spouse was in China, the extra photo’s he took and published on the listing made the decision making possible without an actual onsite look at the property. His photography was exceptional by the way; he really made the place look great bringing out all of its best features.

Thank you again and best wishes for future success,

 The right realtor makes all the difference, and there is nobody who is more the right realtor than Steve Cohen of Prudential Nutshell Realty.  He listened carefully to our needs and wants, was very patient, wasn't the least bit pushy except appropriately on our behalf, and in every interaction made abundantly clear that our happiness was his primary concern.  As a result, we found our dream home and we got it at a great price, but Steve didn't stop there.  He wanted to make sure we had all the resources we needed to make living in our home easy and perfectly enjoyable.  When we asked him for help, he went right to his rolodex and connected us to everything from contractors to lawn maintenance people, all of whom have been just like Steve -- friendly, efficient, get-it-done professionals.

We just purchased a weekend home in Accord, NY. We were not that familiar with the area,but knew we wanted to look in the areas of Ulster and Dutchess counties. We met Steven Asher Cohen by chance, when we asked for more information regarding an online listing from Prudential Nutshell Realty. Steven responded promptly, and was more interested in what we were looking for, rather than just focusing on his listings. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, and was very patient in showing us many different houses. He was so patient that he didn't even flinch when we asked to see one house four times! We are thrilled with the final result, and would highly recommend our broker, Steven Asher Cohen, and Prudential Nutshell Realty.

Steve is the perfect combination of knowledgeable, creative, determined - - and charming! You can rely on Steve to bring full game 100% of the time. He gives honest advice and works hard to find the right match, and see it through to a successful conclusion. Steve doesn’t let any challenges get him down, or get you down, or derail the process. He loves real estate, and he keeps an upbeat attitude throughout the process.  He is the perfect partner to help make successful real estate decisions.

Working with Steve was a great experience. He was knowledgeable, professional, helpful and most of all patient with us always going that extra mile. We would recommend Steve as your agent if you are selling your home.

Steve Cohen was a pleasure to work with.  He really listened to the description of what I wanted and paid close attention to how I responded to the properties he showed me.  I was commuting over 100 miles to see houses and he made very good use of my time.  His upbeat personality and sense of humor helped make the process fun.  I already have recommended Steve to my friends and will be happy to do it again.

Steve is the best! From our very first phone call and meeting, he understood what was important to me. His attention to my concerns was amazing -- he responded to my calls and e-mails so quickly that I felt like his most important client. I had lived in apartments my entire adult life and was feeling sort of overwhelmed looking at houses. Without making a big deal about it, with each house that we looked at together, Steve taught me about mechanical systems and construction, and I grew more and more confident as a buyer. His detailed knowledge of the communities I was interested in was really helpful. When I was ready to make an offer and negotiate a contract, Steve was truly my advocate. And he is incredibly fun, as well.

I had a fantastic experience with Steve, and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in the Hudson River Valley. Steve is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and works hard to find the home that fits your needs. He will keep you informed on the latest listings and will give you very honest assessments of the available properties - he is not looking to push you into a quick decision. He is also a great resource with any questions you may have about the region generally - not just home buying.

My husband and I couldn’t recommend Steve more highly. He’s incredibly knowledgeable of the area and the market and was super responsive throughout the entire process. He is honest and patient and will work hard to find exactly what you’re after and get you the best possible deal in the process.   With Steve at the helm, the process was smooth and somehow nearly stress-free; we always felt we were in good hands. You will feel like you are his only client. Not to mention he’s just a great guy to spend an afternoon looking at houses with. We look forward to staying in touch with our new friend and neighbor!

We used Steve as our agent on the buy-side when looking for a place in the Hudson River Valley. He firmly understood our search criteria and treated us extremely professionally. He was able to recommend good local attorneys, contractors, inspectors, etc., which made the whole process run smoothly as we were from out of state. There seem to always be glitches in real estate transactions and Steve helped us through those easily. He also negotiated an excellent price. Superb!

I have dealt with a great many brokers in the past both as an attorney and personally for purchasing and selling real property. I have always been surprised at how disappointing their service have been. When I was referred to Steven Cohen by friends of friends who purchased their home utilizing Steven's services I was wary but felt that the glowing recommendation from them at least warranted a try. Much to my surprise and delight, Steven worked aggressively and tirelessly to secure offers quickly and efficiently. Even after the offer which ultimate resulted in the sale he continued to work toward back up offers in case the offer on the table fell through. He did extras and was amazingly available and responsive. Steven's negotiating skills are terrific, His advice is on point and I felt like I found not only an extraordinary broker but a friend as well. Yesterday was my closing and because I could not attend, Steven went to make sure everything went well and that I would have someone there to represent my interests. He is without a doubt the best broker I have ever dealt with both professionally and personally. Thank you Steven.

Wow, I feel so fortunate to have had Steve as our realtor! We were out of state buyers and he helped us to feel comfortable and in control with our home search even though we were so far away. From the moment we started working with him, we knew he was the guy for us. He is incredibly friendly, genuine and honest. He knows the entire area like the back of his hand and knows all the right local people to contact for purchasing, owning and maintaining a home. We could immediately tell that he actually loves his job, and is very passionate about homes, from buying, selling to renovating. He knows his trade inside and out. Steve was there with us, step-by-step, through the whole process, it was our first home purchase so we were quite nervous and didn't know what to expect. He protected us from a crazy seller trying to con us and a lazy seller's agent not doing his job right or just not fast enough, and stood up for us on more than one occasion to make sure we weren't taken advantage of. For the entire year that it took to find a place, he did not once pressure us into anything. I can't imagine having bought a home with any other realtor, the thought terrifies me. One particular memory worth sharing and which in my opinion reflects his diligence and care: we found a house that we thought might be the one but being out of state we were unable to view the property. Steve drove an hour in torrential rain, through flooded streets to investigate the property which turned out to be less than what was advertised. However, he never complained and stayed cheerful and optimistic and only said that he was happy to help us find our perfect home. Fast-forward to the present, a month after our closing, and he still checks up to see how we are going with renovation plans and he is quick to offer advice and assistance. In Steven Cohen, my wife and I have found a valuable friend, a trustworthy realtor and thanks to his diligence and hard work, a good neighbor! Our new home happens to be only a few short minutes from his house! There are ‘realtors' and then there are Realtors. Steve Cohen falls into the latter of which there are very few.

Steve has been a great realtor for us. He knows the homes and local area very well, and quickly learned what we're looking for so that he can find properties that are likely to be good for us. Despite a long real estate hunt, he never pressures us to just buy something; he seems to really want us to find the property that will make us happy.

Steve is a formidable ally in the complex process of finding and buying a house. Not only does he have a true expert's knowledge of the local market - which is invaluable - he also truly works on your behalf. Therefore, not only do you get accurate information and advice, you also get a level of attention and integrity that is hard to find. It was a great experience working with him - and he made it enjoyable too. He is the first and only agent we would recommend - or call if we wanted to do it all again.

Steve helped me buy a piece of property I had wanted for a long time. The other side knew I wanted it, but ultimately we came to very favorable terms from my point of view. When the time came to close, they seemed at first like they were going to ignore some of the contractual requirements regarding the condition of delivery of the property. Steve pressed the other side's agent, and got them to comply without blowing the deal. He can be tough when he needs to be, but he also has great judgment about whether or not the situation calls for toughness (or if charm or compromise is more appropriate under the circumstances). Steve is also now helping me try to find a place for my mom to relocate to.?Steve really knows the area and really knows real estate. He sincerely listens to your dreams and goals, as well as practical concerns and considerations. Steve is always accessible and thoughtful, great at explaining things, and an expert at solving challenging issues. He has a terrific perspective on when to be a tough negotiator, and when to craft a creative solution. His experience and tenacity are incredible assets. Steve will find you what you want and get the deal done!
