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

I cannot speak highly enough about Stephan, as my agent I felt like he had my, "best interest " at heart and defiantly was my advocate. I had been looking for over a year and was a little bit weary of staring the buying process. From Start to finish he made things easy. Given his experience a homebuilder, he was a treasure trove of information giving potential houses that I was interested in buying a good looking over inside and out. He not only described potential problems but also notated the integrity within a potential property. Furthermore he was more than happy to revisit with me homes with me that piqued my interest. Just to make sure that I was interested in them or not interested in them. When I found my "dream house", which I knew it when I saw it. He helped me negotiate a deal that wound up winning me the house, as it was a multiple bidding situation. After I had closed on my home, he was very thorough in following since had bought the house as is and it needed some superficial maintenance work. He really wanted to make sure that I got competitive bids on things that needed attention in my house, from staining the decks and house to finding a responsible thorough plumber/ electrician to making sure that I had the best price on a sewer lateral replacement.

Sold a home in 2014 in Havenscourt, Oakland, CA 94605.

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.  More Less
