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!
Stefan put together a deal on a house for me that was so great, so quick, so professional and well...just so fantastic and amazing-it was wonderful! Working with Stefan was professional and impecable every step of the way. This is a guy who listens, gets things done at lightening speed and is an absolute pleasure all around. I cannot reccomend Stefan enough!
I have worked with Stefan on several occasions and he is the best of the best! HIs knowledge of the Marin County and surrounding markets is unparalleled, and he is so knowledgeable in construction and other building areas as well. Stefan makes himself available, responds quickly, provides clear answers, and always has his clients best interests in mind. Literally one of the best Realtors you will find as a Buyer or Seller!
Stephan worked with me, selling raw land that had been thru several other professionals without success. I only wish I had found him sooner. His passionate commitment to my needs exceeded every expectation.
I'm a mortgage broker working with Stefan for the first time and was extremely impressed by his up-to-the-moment communications, his attention to detail and time frames, his commitment to his clients and overall professionalism. It was a pleasure working with him- a breath of fresh air!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.375M in Inverness, CA.
We listed and sold our home in Inverness with Stefan, and purchased a new home with his help. I cannot recommend him highly enough! Stefan is enthusiastic, professional, available, patient, experienced, competent and lots of fun to work with. He will go the distance for you and beyond. If you need a realtor in the Bay Area, look no further, Stefan is outstanding!
I don't even know where to start with this review. Stefan takes real estate expertise and customer service to a whole new level. He has made it clear (and backed it up) that every client matters. When we first met him, we were CASUALLY looking at houses. I felt like we were wasting his time even asking him questions since we had no idea how long it'd be before we could actually buy. He never saw it that way. He's in it for the long haul. Here we are, about 18 months after meetings him, and we just got keys on our first house!
When we finally got serious about buying a couple months ago, Stefan really helped us pave the way for landing our house. First of all, he used to be a builder, which is AWESOME when checking out houses. He'll tell you all the pros and cons to the materials used, condition, etc. (if you want to hear that, which I definitely did!). He also does a great job of making himself available for a client. I don't know when he sleeps, but he seems to be everywhere at once! Whether it was checking out a house for us while we were out of town, having his contractor come give an estimate for work (before we even put an offer), going to the city permit office to find out just how serious they are about an ordinance, arranging for free disposal of some junk left in our new house, or, just yesterday, helping us strategize on some old drywall, he's made it clear he takes these relationships seriously.
We could NOT be happier with Stefan and his team. He also offered to connect us with his preferred mortgage broker, who was absolutely AMAZING to work with! He made it clear our needs and wants came first, and he did whatever it took to make them come true. That included keeping everything moving to get us closed in 18 days because we wanted to get in before some previously arranged time off!
If you're looking to buy in the area, you need to call Stefan.
