Stephanie Malave - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

My boyfriend, Jason, and I were in the market looking for our very first home last December.

We were renting in the Claremont area for over 6 months and we were ready to purchase a home. As first time home buyers we were oblivious of the housing market. We were unsure of what to ask or what to expect. We wanted to stay within the area yet find a brand new home within a reasonable price. Most newer developments were priced over our budget and other older homes were not within our "expectations" of what our first home should be. During our search Stephanie was able to guide us through the process. She took her time to really understand what we truly wanted. We were able to locate a brand new condo complex within the upland area. The condo had a holiday special that gave us the our brand new home within our budget. She walked us through every process and assured us of what to expect. She was able to negotiate the price down and thanks to her we were able to settle for a deal within our price range including our upgrades. We couldn't be happier. We closed escrow and received our keys this pass April. Stephanie continues to help us until this day with any new homebuyer advice. She truly made our experience such an amazing and unforgettable one. We couldn't thank her enough.

Hi my name is JC.

I needed to sell my mother’s house in Compton, CA within 45 days timeframe. I called Stephanie Malave on a referral from a mutual acquaintance. Stephanie immediately return my call. She was extremely professional and very friendly during the call. Stephanie understood my role as executer of my mother’s estate but insisted to meet my 91yrs old mother to get to know her and gain her trust. I told Stephanie what I thought the listing price should be. Stephanie listened and wrote down my suggested listing price. She told me she would provide me detailed marketing research on the neighborhood. She gave me a Market Activity Report for my zip code and neighborhood. She took the time to provide me a clear, simplified explanation of the report, i.e., comparable homes, median, average and estimated pricing. Stephanie armed me with confidence that my house and my finalized listing price would attract qualified prospective homebuyers. With that said, I received two offers, both above my listing price, on the first day of our open house. We sold my mother’s house for $10,000.00 above the listing price. Escrow closed in 31 days. That was 14 days before the 45 days escrow closure I requested. Stephanie was unbelievable throughout the process. She was reachable, responsive and treated everyone with the utmost respect. She will my first call for any future real estate transactions.

Stephanie was a pleasure to work with during the home buying process!

Being a first time home buyer, I had many questions when it came to the actual transaction and things to be aware of. She was very knowledgable and guided me through every step of the way. Furthermore, she worked hard to research the property prior to us signing a contract and gave her honest opinion on our decision. She didn't pressure us at any moment, only presented the facts to insure that we made an informed decision. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. She went above and beyond and kept us updated throughout the process. Responsive, respectful, and professional are just a few words that I would use to describe Stephanie. She's great and had MY best interest at heart!

I could not have asked for a better person to assist me with one of the biggest transitional periods of my life.

Purchasing your first home is not easy, but Stephanie definitely put me ease during each step. If at any point I had question or concern she was quick to respond. I highly recommended her to any person interested in buying a home.

Stephanie blew us away with her knowledge and commitment to us as her client.

From the second that we brought Stephanie on as our agent we knew we were in good hands. We were treated as family and given amazing feedback throughout the entire process. We recommend using Stephanie for any situation involving your home, or future home. You will not find a better agent than Stephanie.

Heather and Cary DeFelicis

Stephanie was 100% invested and committed to help us through out this process that could sometimes be lengthy and painful.

We were able to make informed decisions based on her feedback and research of the market. Stephanie was so patient in the search for the right house for us. Once she learned our preferences, she narrowed the search out to avoid wasting time looking at properties we wouldn’t be interested. Stephanie was there for us every step of the way always looking out for our best interests. We can’t thank her enough for her dedication and professionalism representing us and finally finding the perfect home for our family. From the bottom of our hearts, 1,000 times thank you Steph!
