Steven Caporale is the Founder and Managing Partner at Accel. He is an entrepreneur at heart. In his youth, his ambitions became evident when he learned happiness was found in starting and growing a business of any kind. Later, as a Hornbeck Scholar majoring in Real Estate and Construction Management at the University of Denver, he bought and owned five single-family investment properties before graduating. In the last decade, Steven has founded or co-founded multiple companies. These include three Top-10 ranked Idaho real estate brokerages, a business productivity app, and a full-service digital marketing agency. He had the privilege of being featured on an episode of HGTV’s House Hunters and has been a syndicated contributor to Forbes, Housing Wire, and INMAN News. He’s a brand ambassador for Leverage Global Partners and a member of the Forbes Real Estate Council. Steven holds a graduate certificate in Organizational Development.
For eleven years, Steven was employed in portfolio companies of a New York City-based equity firm. This included working for a FORTUNE 1000 company, Workflow Management, as a Director of Real Estate. Experiences from this period include traveling to dozens of worldwide locations managing real estate and marketing teams and having the chance to work with or meet a notable list of individuals. (Bill Gates, Herb Allen, Derek Jeter, Sean Penn, John Elway, Jennifer Aniston, Regis Philben, and Tim McGraw were favorites.) Through these experiences, Steven witnessed success at the highest levels. He learned that the same principles that make a great business apply to almost everything else in life.
Those who know Steven best describe him as “polite and kind, a quick learner, intelligent problem solver, and incredibly visionary”. As an entrepreneur, Steven believes that every adversity, every failure and heartache, carry with it the seed of a greater or equal benefit. In his words: “My life’s plan is to always be improving, mastering new skills, inspiring others to find their passions, and continually bring value where I can. Success is not by accident; it takes vision, timing, and extraordinary hard work.”
Today, Steven focuses on his A+ relationships, the majority of which are past and referred clients. He looks forward to his third decade on the front lines of entrepreneurship, investing, and real estate. Steven finds great satisfaction in strategic planning and helping other business owners grow and scale.

“Steven is incredible to work with. He is the broker's "broker". Wicked intelligent, yet humble. He's funny, a good listener, and truly works to understand what your needs are. And no matter how many hoops he has to jump through, he will find the best property for you in the end. He is insightful and knows how to manage pressure and multiple personalities. He's someone you come to trust entirely. A number of complications came up on the Seller's side that could have cost us the property; all the while Steven remained cool and level-headed....literally redirecting both sides of the transactions to a clear path where we ended up closing early. Something only a polished veteran could have pulled off. ” —David Lindahl
“Absolutely phenomenal! We'd had another agent earlier in the process who had to move out of state prompting us to switch to Steven based on a recommendation from my CEO....the difference was night and day! He was smart, fast-acting, and like a good friend from the first minute we met. He never tried to push us into buying something we did not love and many times pointed out things we should be concerned about. We can not recommend anyone higher!” —Kris & Morgan Russell
