If you’re looking for a single-family home, a fixer, or a condo in San Francisco or the East Bay, I suggest talking to Stephanie!
Stephanie is a great realtor! She knows the housing markets on both sides of the bay really well, which was paramount in figuring out what I could afford and where I would land. She also understands the true costs of fixing fixer-uppers, (in part based on her own experience). So she took me into more remote, less urban areas and showed me the challenges of a fixer (as a single person with no car!), and she helped me understand what numbers were required beyond the down payment and closing costs. It was great to have that laid out for me, actually touring and seeing in real life made it more real than the numbers on paper.
Once we narrowed my search to a condo, Stephanie set me up with a great lender who, like her, is well-versed with condos on both sides of the bay. I was able to get pre-approved and know what parameters I was working with (whereas my earlier attempts at getting pre-approved by my credit union were unsuccessful).
Stephanie helped me craft appealing letters to sellers. For my new home, Stephanie got my offer to the seller’s agent first, and it mattered! I appreciated her understanding of the market, fast response times, and positive encouragement throughout. Her attention to detail helped me save $1500 on a clerical error too.

Stephanie is magic!
Stephanie is magic! Within a couple of meetings and a few open houses, she guided me towards clarity of understanding: What do I want? What can I afford? Which neighborhoods will work for me? She REALLY listened when we looked at houses and spent time talking through it all. When she found the right house...
