PROFESSIONAL DESIGNATIONS                                                 
Steve believes that one of the keys to success, both for himself and his clients, is a continually updated education.  He takes many classes and seminars to increase his effectiveness and has earned three of the real estate industry's most prestigious designations: GRI (Graduate REALTOR Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), and CRS (Certified Residential Specialist).  Nationally recognized, these designations are earned through a rigorous course of study as well as demonstrated professional experience.  They are Steve's assurance to you that he provides quality service. 


A native of the area, Steve has lived in Wilmington all of his life. He has seen the area grow and change and knows it from both personal and professional experience. Steve graduated from P.S. duPont High School and attended college at the University of Delaware, where he earned a BS degree in Business Administration. Steve's wife, also a native of Wilmington, is an elementary school teacher in the Christina School District and both of their daughters are graduates of Ursuline Academy. One daughter, a graduate of Jefferson Medical College, completed her residency at the DuPont Hospital for Children, and is now Chief Pediatric Hospitalist at Christiana Hospital. His younger daughter graduated from the University of Delaware, and is a sales specialist at Apple Computer, Christiana Mall.  She has passed on considerable computer knowledge to Steve to help him manage his business.  Steve says, "my new iPhone has changed my life". 

Having gained so much from living and working in New Castle County, Steve is eager to give something back to the community. To that end, he is a past member of the Board of Directors and Treasurer of the Bayard Square Neighborhood Association. He is also a member of St. Anthony of Padua Church and an active member and treasurer of St. Anthony's choir. In addition, Steve is a Meals on Wheels volunteer and in 2007 he helped Habitat For Humanity build a home in Wilmington.

Steve's involvement in the education and activities of his daughters, along with his community activities have given him an acute awareness of the needs and wants of families in the area. He knows the schools, the neighborhoods, the services and the benefits available and is a valuable information resource both for those new to the area as well as to those who are simply changing neighborhoods.

When not serving his clients, you might find Steve at the New Jersey shore where he and his wife love to relax. He also enjoys working on projects around the house and spending time with family and friends.

"Steve Rybachak is an exemplary agent who demonstrated a great deal of skill, understanding, and patience. I interviewed 2 other agents before selecting him. Two factors demonstrated his superior suitability: 1) his willingness to discuss and understand my goals and purposes, as opposed to trying to randomly find a potential house; and 2) his mannerisms are diligent, logical, and serious."
-- W. A. Prosser, Jr.
"Steve Rybachak was excellent. If there is anyway that I could repay him for his courtesy, reliability, trustworthiness, and attentiveness, it would be to give him an excellent exceeding expectation review. I would never need to find another agent when I am ready to buy another home. Steve would definitely be the Realtor."
