Clients are saying:
"Stephanie was indispensable to us during both the purchase and sale of our homes. She is a true professional and made it her priority to understand our needs, concerns and make the process as easy for us as possible. She is very knowledgeable of the local market and always presented us with detailed information to help us make the best decisions. She was a great advocate for us and also very mindful of what a stressful process this can be for a family. We truly enjoyed working with her and highly recommend!"
"Stephanie is the personification of professionalism. She has the unique business quality of combining a warm personality while maintaining a level of attention to the task at hand. She has a superb knowledge of her market and presents products to prospects/clients that meet their stated needs. Of note is her attention to detail and follow-up. She stays on task from the beginning of a relationship through the successful close of the transaction. We would have no hesitation to refer prospects to her."
"Stephanie is wonderful to work with - Incredibly attentive, responsive, and organized. She truly cares about the process and understands what a big decision buying a home is for a family. She knows the market very well and is really helpful with understanding value in the marketplace. We really enjoyed going out with Stephanie and looking at homes. Her attention to every detail is incredibly reassuring as there are a lot of moving parts to keep track of. She kept everything we needed in order for us. We highly recommend Stephanie!"
"Stephanie was wonderful to work with. She knows the Lake Bluff, Lake Forest area extremely well and was a wealth of information for us not only in finding a house, but also in transitioning to the new location. Stephanie knows what a big decision buying a house can be and was always very sensitive to making sure we found exactly what would fit our needs as a family. She never had an agenda of her own or tried to push us in a particular direction to hurry the process along. During our process, my husband was working in Chicago while I was still in Virginia. Stephanie would work with my husband's busy schedule to show him houses and would also preview homes for me so that we could streamline our decision and only show my husband homes that would be appropriate for our family. I highly recommend using Stephanie and feel that not only have I gained a beautiful home, but I also gained a friend, neighbor and fellow school parent in the process."
"Very dedicated with a personal touch to make it a positive, successful experience for us and the buyers. Detailed, good communication and does personal showings, no lock box like others use. Pricing and market advice that was instrumental to our fast home sale."
