Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate how well youve handled my home sale. You are not only the ultimate professional with a keen knowledge of market but you are also a delightful and caring person. I was very impressed watching you handle the many offers as they were presented by other realtors. It was obvious that you are a leader in your field and well respected by your peers. The sale went without the slightest problems. You were always there when I needed some information or needed help meeting inspectors of all sorts. Selling my home was emotionally difficult but you made the process so much easier for me.
Again, than you for all you have done.
When my husband and I were getting ready to put our house on the market, we interviewed a few agents and Stephanie Masten was one of them. We had seen her name on many for sale signs. After interviewing her, we knew she was the agent for us. She was very confident and knew what she was talking about. It was obvious that she was very experienced. Now that we have almost closed escrow, we are very pleased with the decision we made. Stephanie has been wonderful. She is always on top of things and knows what is going on every step of the way. She is a very hard worker and is very dedicated to her clients. She has done a great job for us. Overall, Stephanie is a great agent, she really takes good care of her clients and looks out for their best interest.

We were first time sellers and the prospect of selling was terrifying. After interviewing several agents and agonizing over whom to work with I feel I made the right choice to go with Stephanie Masten. Her years of experience and thorough understanding of our area were invaluable in preparing, marketing, and closing the sale of our home to our complete satisfaction.
She suggested ways to present our home in the best light and introduced us to the right people to get things done. She was proactive in contacting prospective buyers in addition to holding an open house. Because of her hard work and knowledge, our home sold in record time. Throughout the process from planning and prepping for the sale until escrow closed, she kept us informed and made sure that we understood each step. Above all, I valued the comfortable working relationship and open line of communication we had with her. It was very important to feel at ease when bringing up any concerns or problems we had. She was honest and I always felt that she had our best interest at heart. I would highly recommend her services.
If you are looking for a reliable agent you are certain to find that quality with Stephanie. I recently chose Stephanie for the sale of my home and it was the right choice. She directed me from the beginning with honest and safe pre-sale decisions. More than anything, Stephanies know how and enthusiasm about her work is very impressive. I virtually did very little during the prep for listing. Stephanie oversaw all the work (always asking me for my OK on any work to be done). This was a Godsend for me, as I had already moved and was a good distance away. The house listed the middle of January and the deal was made within two weeks. The transaction closed in
How did you do that? I listed my property with you the end of January. Open house was January 30th, tour of realtors was
Ive been in Real Estate since 1967 and Ive never seen or heard of anything like this. You jumped in making everything happen. Living three and a half hours away in Amador Country, your help in advising me as to what needed to be done to make my duplex saleable and then finding people to do the work necessary, made it all happen. We became a team and got everything done and I dont know how I can every thank you enough. You really made the impossible . . . possible.
Thank you. You made the whole process happen and working with you was a wonderful experience. I dont know what would have happened without you and all your help. You just raised the bar for all the other Realtors in
This letter is being written to express my sheer delight and total satisfaction in working with Ms. Stephanie Masten during the sale of our home.
From the beginning of our relationship, Ms. Masten proved herself to be professional, competent, easy to work with, and a genuinely nice person. She offered valuable advice and direction throughout the process and did not create any additional hardship or duress. Quite simply, Ms. Masten made the sale of our home a short, simple, and painless experience. She instilled in us confidence, as well as peace of mind, as a direct result of her adeptness in handling every aspect of the selling process. She continues to be a friend and a trusted resource in the real estate market.
I will certainly retain the services of Stephanie Masten in the future and will strongly recommend her to all of my friends and family.
I just wanted to drop you a note to express our gratitude with your assistance and recommendations for our quick sale at 1023 Shoreline Dr. Your suggestion to hire a stager was crucial in getting offers above the asking price. When we went looking for another home to relocate, we knew we could get sound advice from you on locations suitable to our two young daughters. Again, we are extremely pleased to live in Alden Crossings. You approached both sides of our transactions with such warm personal attention. At times we felt as though we were your only clients. Many agents seem to want a quick transaction to put the commission in their pocket. You made it a point to allow us to ponder over our decision until WE were comfortable making a move. There was never a feeling of pressure. Please pass this on to future clients as a letter of recommendation. We would only turn to you on any future real estate transactions.
There have only been two realtors I have been able to get along with over a period of 14 years. I may be somewhat difficult but there was a never a time when Stephanie was the least bit affected by me or any of my demands. She had, and has maintained to have the same delightful, respective, knowledgeable personality since I first called her. Today, If I leave her a message regarding the house or anything relating to it, she gets back to me within 12 hours with names, many phone numbers and helpful hints that she has accumulated through her years in the business. This is not her job. This is just Stephanie.
I was fortunate in finding her name on a town home in Harbortown because I have been given many, many names of realtors who were all highly recommended but who failed to find me what I was looking for. They were often pushy and wasted my time trying to sell me something I did not want. I told Stephanie what I was looking for and I did not hear from her until she had found it. I looked at one place with her and bought it. Furthermore, the selling party was somewhat troublesome but Stephanie stayed right on top of them and did everything she could do to make things come out in my favor. She is totally honest, knowledgeable, reliable, time conscious, a dedicated hard worker and I trust her completely. The next time I buy or sell a home, I would be comfortable allowing her to do everything totally unsupervised. She is that good. There are very few people in the world today who can even be trusted at all. I am delighted to have her as my realtor and to know her as a person.
I listed my townhouse in Harbortown with Stephanie, and it sold within 4 weeks of the initial listing. I have to say that I was completely satisfied with the representation that I received from Stephanie from the beginning to final closure of the sale. I have had many real estate transactions, both purchases and sales in the Bay area over the past 20 years, and this was the best service that I have received from a realtor.
First, the primary reason that I contacted Stephanie initially was that I wanted someone who was familiar with Harbortown to represent me; sine she lived there and I had received frequent mailings from her over the years, I felt that her knowledge of the uniqueness of the Harbortown community would be a big plus in representing the property to prospective buyers who may not be familiar with the differences that various complexes offer. That proved to be the case.
Stephanie provided many services that were above and beyond those that I expected from a realtor, and these services made the sale and completion of the transaction very smooth in every aspect. She gave me many helpful suggestions of things that I could do to make the house show better. The timing of my move made it necessary for me to vacate the townhouse before it sold, and Stephanie arranged for a designer to stage the property once it was vacated. She provided references for individuals to complete inspections and minor handyman repairs prior to the sale. She was always available and willing to serve as the contact person to see that those things were taken care of. After my move, I received regular phone calls and updates from Stephanie to keep me informed of things that she was doing to promote the house, and progress that was being made. When an offer did come in, she represented me in my absence in a strong and professional way that I believed helped secure a very good and fair sales price for the unit. She continued to provide excellent support throughout escrow and through the close of the sale. Because I had relocated to another town, this sale probably demanded a little more than most conventional sales, and I never once felt that Stephanie had any reluctance to provide that extra service.
As I said at the outset, this has been the best service that I have experienced from a realtor. Stephanie is a professional who loves what she is doing, takes pride in her work and who works hard. I give her the highest recommendation possible. Feel free to call for personal confirmation of this recommendation or if you have any questions.
