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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Stephanie was a pleasure to work with and helped make the process go smoothly. She was readily available for all of our questions and needs. She helped ease a lot of the concerns regarding selling and buying a home. She would frequently check in on us to ensure this experience was memorable and as less stressful as possible. I could honestly say she was genuinely invested and provided the best experience i have ever had working with a realtor. I am thankful and loving my new home. Thank you!
I was relieved to have an agent that went above and beyond to help make sure the transition went as smoothly as possible. From assistance with staging to negotiating a deal that we were thoroughly pleased with, Stephanie Malave was always on top of things so I didn’t have to worry as much. She is extremely professional and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
