Stephan was great to work with throughout the process of buying our home. He was creative with helping us figure out how best to finance the home and was able to negotiate a very favorable price given his knowledge of the area and costs for repairs. His easy going nature and astute sense of what we were looking made it easy for us to work with him. Most of all, we appreciated his patience throughout our somewhat unconventional "fixer upper" search that lasted about year. The only thing keeping this a perfect 5-stars was spotty cellphone service but that's also the nature of being up in the Sierra's. We would recommend Stephan to anyone.
