My husband and I are first time homeowners and used Ms. Stewart as our Realtor upon recommendation of a friend. We were very pleased with her level of knowledge and patience as we tried to find the perfect home for our budget and taste. My husband and I were both very comfortable asking her questions regarding each step of the process. At no time did we feel that our questions were stupid or a waste of her time. I would highly recommend her services to anyone trying to purchase a home in the bay area. Five stars.
