"We HIGHLY recommend Stephanie for all of your real estate needs. We were only beginning to talk about selling our home and finding a new home that better fit our needs when we met Stephanie. Stephanie talked to us about the current market conditions and why the time was ideal for making that change. She sold our home for over the asking price in one day! She then presented us with several options for our new home that were perfectly matched to the requirements that we gave her. Stephanie is knowledgeable, attentive and will guide you through the entire buying and selling process with ease. She started out as our realtor but we now consider her our friend! Stacey and Tom Burt"

"Stephanie Chapman is the best they come. My husband and I had a bad experience with our previous realtor that lead to a lot of stress when we were buying our first home. This time around we knew we wanted a change. So when we were ready to sell, we reached out to Stephanie and her team. From our very first meeting we knew that we had made the right choice! Stephanie made us feel comfortable, encouraged, and supported the whole way through. She staged our home beautifully and made sure we had plenty of potential buyers ready to view when we were ready to go to market. In just 48 hours we had 10 offers!! With Stephanie‘s help, we were able to feel confident in our selling choice and ended up accepting an offer that was higher than what we had anticipated!! There is no doubt that we will be using Stephanie for all of our future buying and selling needs!"

"This is the third time I have worked with Stephanie to lease a home and I will most definitely work with her the next time I lease or buy! She is so friendly and responsive, much more so than other agents I have worked with in the past. She makes you feel like you are her number one priority and a friend, and she also know how to get the job done. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"

"Having Stephanie as our agent made purchasing our first home a breeze. The home itself had its share of obstacles but Stephanie's responsiveness and diligence made it easy. She is a kind, professional agent who put our happiness at the top of her priority list. We had decided on a bit of a fixer upper and she managed our expectations by explaining the whole inspection process and suggested we dig a little deeper for peace of mind. Sure enough, she was right! We had found a few things that weren't noticeable on the initial walkthroughs and saved us thousands of dollars! We are so thankful for her efforts, expertise and newfound friendship."

"Stephanie not only knows her market, she goes above and beyond for her clients. She is patient and thoughtful and helped me find a new home during a hectic time in life. I am grateful for her help and guidance and definitely recommend her for all of your real estate needs."

"Stephanie is an incredible agent. She was prompt and extremely professional. Even with the fluctuation of the market, she was able to get me top dollar and a quick closing. Stephanie was very well prepared throughout the entire journey of selling my home. Her suggestion to stage my home was a vital part in getting a great/quick offer. She also made the experience very easy and seamless to where I did NOT have to stress over ANYTHING. She managed all the details by making appointments with vendors and meeting them at my home even when I couldn't be there. I HIGHLY recommend Stephanie Chapman to anyone looking for an agent!"

"Stephanie is one of the best realtors I know. She is professional, willing to work with you, and really goes out of her way to make sure the house is ready for a showing. In addition, she is always there when I have questions or concerns. Most of all, she always updates me with each buyer who showed up to let me know that there are showings happening. That is a sense of security, and responsibility on her part to make her clients feel at ease. – Ming Chiu (October 1, 2018)"

"Stephanie helped me with the sale of my home in Brea, CA. She prepared my home by doing a thorough walk-through and hiring a professional stager. She made my home a 100% priority for the entire week it was getting ready for the market. She showed up every day to make sure the vendors & stager were on track, and she even helped out with the staging process. When my home was ready, Stephanie hired a professional photographer to take photos, which turned out great. Everyone she hired was very courteous and professional. The day of Open House, Stephanie went out of her way with a nice presentation of flowers, gift bags, refreshments and she even baked cookies in my oven. My home was on the market for less than a week. The day after the first weekend of Open House we had an offer and SOLD for $50K over my list price! Stephanie’s escrow transaction coordinator was diligent and we closed right on time. Everything was seamless! I am extremely pleased with how professional Stephanie and her team of people were and her line of communication was over the top. Thank you Stephanie for getting my home sold FAST so that I could move into my dream home!"

"Stephanie is an amazing real estate agent. I called her to help find us a house to rent, she returned my call within minutes, and was able to show me several houses the very next day! She is very diligent, meticulous, and accommodating. When we are ready to buy a house, she will be the only person I call to help us!"

"I reached out to Stephanie when I needed to quickly find a home to rent. She immediately sent me listings that met my search criteria and offered to meet me at a home that same evening. She was so responsive to my requests! Stephanie quickly found a home that I loved and expertly negotiated with the listing realtor. After we had moved in, Stephanie followed up multiple times and even brought over a housewarming gift and card. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"

"Stephanie was great! She went well above and beyond my expectations for a realtor, and I've been through the process of selling a home too many times (I've moved a lot for work). Her biggest strengths are her communication skills and her planning. She listens very well and knows what it takes to get a house sold. We needed to get the house on the market quickly, but knew we had some work that needed to be done. She was able to help us find all the people to do the work we needed quickly, and it the work that was done was of the highest quality. She found us someone to stage our house which made our house look amazing. She also had a great marketing plan. We had a broker open house, prior to a full open house weekend. This worked great. I have a big family so keeping the house clean is a struggle. We only had to show our house for 4 days, and of those 4 days we went on a weekend trip for 3 of them. After we came back we had a full priced offer! Thanks Stephanie!"

"Greatly enjoyed working with Stephanie to find a rental after our relocation. Stephanie worked tirelessly to accommodate our requests, and took the time and effort to help us find the house that met our needs. She is meticulous in her work, and dedicated to serving her clients."
