Super experience having Stephanie working for us on our new home! In-depth knowledge of the community helped us get everything setup without any problems, and helped us out in many other ways besides the home purchase.

I was very impressed with Stephanie. This was the first time my wife and I had ever bought a home. Stephanie was very patient with all our questions and she guided us through the process. She was organized, detail-oriented, and was always working so hard on our behalf. We already have and will continue to recommend her to people we know looking for a realtor.

Prompt, efficient, diligent, and responsive. If this is what you are looking for in a realtor, then seek out Stephanie. She alerted me when she found a prospective purchase, sought out the information I needed, prepared a successful offer and helped us get through closing.
Stephanie made our first time home buying experience pleasant and exciting rather than scary and overwhelming. She's personable and easy to work with. Her communication and ability to get responses back to us quickly each time we had a question helped us to feel confident in her and in our purchase. She was quick with text, phone and email responses which was key for me as a buyer with lots of questions. We found the perfect house and will without a doubt use Stephanie for any future real estate needs we may have.
