I have two passions. Real estate. And music. Put them together and you have an agent who knows homes, and knows how to make them sing. Here's why.

I got into real estate on the ground floor—literally. Thanks to over six years of hands-on experience training with a master/builder and electrician, I learned every aspect of construction—from foundation to finish. I know homes. Inside and out. And that's to your advantage.

Whether you want to ready your house for market, inspect a home prior to purchase, or make improvements once you've bought your home, I can make it happen—fast. I work closely with a talented team of professionals including two builder/contractors, a plumber, electrician, roofer, home inspector, structural pest inspector, structural engineer, architect, draftsman, interior designer, insurance agent, and a landscape architect.

In addition to my extensive background in construction, I also bring a keen aesthetic sense to the table. After all, I grew up surrounded by music. My mother is an operatic soprano and my father was a distinguished symphony conductor. I had a lucrative career in music as well, singing opera and playing chamber music around the world.

Music taught me to listen and to communicate at a deeper level. I'm a sharp negotiator; devoted to helping my clients realize the best possible outcomes.

For fun, I still continue to sing, compose music for piano and voice and perform in regional productions. I also surf, mountain bike, enjoy time with my two young sons, and seek out exciting places to dine with friends. I also enjoy relaxing in Las Vegas listening to live music.

Team reviews

Stefan helped us sell our home in Oakland. We had to get a certain price to make the move work financially. He was patient and diligent in tracking down the right buyers for our home, and ultimately helped us get a full price offer. He went to great lengths to find us a home stager and a painter that fit our budget. Stefan then worked with us to find us a home to buy that we love. His knowledge of construction is so useful. He was able to help us see the vision of what our new home could become once remodeled. I highly recommend Stefan to anyone looking to sell or buy. We will certainly be using him again in the future.

Found a tenant for a Multi Family home in Kentfield, CA.

We've used Stefan Schemerhorn for several real estate consultations, the most recent of which was an evaluation of a property we were interested in. He also helped us secure new tenants for our income property. He is consistently responsive, prompt, polite, thorough and intelligent. He’s creative yet down-to-earth in his problem-solving should any obstacle arise. He offers a rare blend of integrity, experience, and care.

Stefan’s background in actual home building lets him evaluate properties quickly and accurately. He has an instinct for being able to “read” a given property’s assets and liabilities, a talent for digesting options and laying them out in an organized way. It takes him little time to spot the not-so-obvious costs that may be involved when getting into different properties. No matter the outcomes, I end up more educated and empowered in real estate. I highly recommend Stefan Schemerhorn!
