Steven Barisonek

Broker Associate Oldwick office

Steve brings multi-faceted expertise in the financial and hospitality industries to the Oldwick Office.  Before joining Turpin, he was a director of international sales and trading for Guggenheim Securities on Wall Street, and he also worked in the sales division of an online restaurant equipment distributor in San Francisco.  These roles combine to give Steve an ideal foundation in residential sales since many of the same skills he developed--including client contact, problem-solving and open communication—also serve him well in the real estate business.

Knowledgeable in the financial aspects of home ownership, Steve can offer advice about mortgages and budgeting from his many years handling institutional investors.  His former position at BigTray.com in San Francisco allowed him to work closely with restaurant owners, hotels and chefs on the design of their kitchen layout as well as necessary equipment. This experience is helpful to his current clients who rely on his insights concerning their own homes.   

Working and living in the local community is an aspect of his sales associate job Steve truly appreciates, since he likes the idea of helping clients find the perfect home at the perfect price.  One of his greatest assets is his deep knowledge of the market area, from Summit and Chatham to Tewksbury and Clinton.  “I know the roads, I know the neighborhoods, I know the schools and I believe this benefits my clients,” Steve notes. 

Born and raised in Gladstone, Steve graduated from the Delbarton School in Morristown and Loyola University in Maryland.  Today he lives in Long Valley with his wife, Emily, their three children and a black lab named Watson.  In his free time, Steve enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, kayaking, fishing, golf and snowboarding. He stays connected with his high school classmates as a member of the Delbarton Alumni Association.

Friends and co-workers often describe Steve as straightforward, dedicated and loyal. He is known for his calm demeanor and a work style that is both dependable and reliable.  His decision to join Turpin was a personal one: Steve’s mother, Barbara Barisonek, manages the Chatham Office.  Steve has known some of the company’s agents for over two decades and has developed an excellent camaraderie through the years.  As someone who grew up discussing real estate topics at the dinner table (his father is a retired real estate attorney) he adds, “I feel in a way that I am coming to the family business.”

Steve welcomes your future call, visit or email to the Oldwick Office.  He looks forward to assisting you with all your real estate concerns.

Steve was extremely helpful in both selling our condo and finding us our home in a tough market. He was very proactive and really listened to what we wanted and needed. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking to buy or sell a property.

In addition to be being very knowledgeable and easy to work with, Steve was available whenever we needed him—including nights and weekends. For example, when a last-minute fire inspection was about to happen, he delivered a fire extinguisher in time for the inspection.

Steve is a consummate professional and is very knowledgeable in his field. He was a pleasure to work with and strongly represented our interests. He has an excellent understanding of the market and was very strong in suggesting modifications we needed to make. We also used Steve to purchase our new town-home, and he was also very helpful in guiding us through this process. Highly recommend Steve on both the buying and selling of real estate.

Steven Barisonek exceeded every expectation we could have wanted in a realtor. He worked with us over a year ago but the timing to purchase a new home just wasn't right. He was loyal and stuck with us the following year showing us some great properties until we found our dream home that had everything we were looking for in our price range. He was incredible during the negotiating process and was able to get a great price for the property. And eventhough there were some timing issues for closing during the new purchase, he worked tirelessly to ensure that we were able to maintain a strong solid deal on our dream home where we were able to reach a mutually beneficial and happy agreement with the sellers. We would definitely recommend Steven for anyone looking to purchase a new home.

Steve Barisonek was invaluable in our search for a new home. My wife and I were both very particular about what type of home we wanted and how much we wanted to spend. Steve listened to us and then delivered. Steve was patient (he showed us around 25-30 homes), kind (he took us out for an early dinner after a long day of house hunting) and generous (picked us up at our house and drove us around on many of the house hunting expeditions). Steve was very knowledgeable about the area, about overall pricing and about home stuff in general. He was also extremely helpful in the negotiating process. Knowing when to play hard ball and when not to. In the end his negotiating skills helped save us a ton of money. We were so happy with the service we received from Steve Barisonek and would 100% recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in New Jersey.

Our experience with Steve was nothing but positive. When we began our home search, my husband and I were somewhat at odds with what we were looking for in a new home and new town. Steve spent a huge amount of time determining what would make both of us happy. Since he grew up in Peapack and has lived in the areas we were looking, his expertise and knowledge of the surrounding areas was very helpful. He was incredibly patient as we "shopped around" for several months, getting the feel of different towns and growing more comfortable with our options. We always felt like his number one priority and were never made to feel bad about taking our time. He completely understood what we were looking for and kept his eyes out daily for any listings that he felt met those criteria. Steve was consistent and persistent about working with us to find something we both would love. He called me one afternoon and said "I think I found your house". It had just been listed and we were one of the first people to see it. The second we pulled into the driveway we knew it was the one. We immediately made an offer. This decisiveness coming from us was a testament to how well Steve understood what we wanted/needed in a home. We feel so lucky that he recognized that this home was "the one" for us because we know it would have been snatched up quickly by someone else had he not acted so quickly on our behalf. He was a firm and skilled negotiator during the purchasing process and we feel terrific about how everything went. We closed about a month ago and could not be happier with what we bought and how we got here. I would fully recommend Steve for anyone looking for real estate in NJ.

Steve's attention to detail, and quick response was a big help in showing me property in the market. Not being from here I relied on Steve's knowledge of the area, as he grew up here. It is always refreshing to do business with someone who shares the belief the best way to do business is by following the Golden Rule.
