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.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Tiburon, CA.
Stefan was wonderful from the beginning of the transaction to the end. Went way beyond to help make my purchase as easy as possible and had great suggestions as to people to refinish a deck and parquet floor.
Would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Corte Madera, CA.
I live in South Florida and needed to sell a property that I owned in Marin County. From our first contact, which was via email, Stefan was the ultimate professional. Always responsive and helpful. He definitely goes the extra mile and provides assistance wherever needed. He even put me in contact with a company that does 1031 exchanges. I could not have sold this property as quickly-- within one week -- and as easily without Stefan.
Stefan is a real estate professional you can really trust. He is supportive, caring, attentive, responsive and extremely sensitive when is comes to a buyers needs, hopes and wishes. His work is not about “making a sale”. He helped me find the right house. His immense knowledge about the market and all its possibilities was unbelievably valuable.
He knows, sees and shares A LOT about building, construction, the condition of a house, the structure and the material. He creatively envisions the possibilities of a house and points out problems that might arise. He expertly helped evaluate future maintenance, repair and remodeling costs. When working with Stefan, you will really know what you are getting yourself into, once you buy a house. He has invaluable creative ideas about how to live in the house, redesign the house, and maybe remodel it.
I highly recommend working with Stefan for his talent, his intelligence, his creativity, his integrity, his expertise, his passion and his professional customer oriented approach. Most of all I recommend Stefan because it is a pleasure to work with him.
One more thing: Especially in case you are from Europe, like I am, or have any kind of “unusual needs”: Stefan is the best agent you can find. He is incredibly interested and flexible and capable of putting himself in other peoples shoes.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Adams Point, Oakland, CA.
Stefan was amazing. He has extensive knowledge of the process and has a builders background. This was tremendously helpful. He was able to zero in on the important stuff like foundation, structure and city laws.
Additionally he is well connected to other professionals needed in the process. Insurance, lenders etc. He helped us save money every step of the way.
I would highly recommend Stefan to anyone looking to buy a home.
