Our Story

I want to know YOUR story and journey. Real Estate allows me to utilize the skills and qualities I’ve honed in the Marines, to serve the community I love.

CLIENT CENTRIC | This is your life, this is your deal. This should absolutely be all about you. Everything we do while working together, and every action I take while representing you and advising you, is centered on you and your specific situation.

RESPONSIVE | I know how nerve wrecking the real estate process can be, because I’ve experienced it myself. Therefore, the last thing I want to do is add more stress by not responding to your texts, calls, or email. My goals is to respond within six hours.

EXPERIENCED | Whether you are purchasing Apartment Buildings, Condominiums, Multifamily Homes, or Single Family Homes, you will benefit from my firsthand experience and knowledge.

“Working with Stefan on three real estate transactions has been refreshing. Besides being knowledgeable and an expert in Bay Area real estate, Stefan is patient, supportive and upbeat. He takes the time to listen and understand your needs…He patiently shared insights on neighborhoods, showed us homes in our comfort zone and helped us to structure our bids. Considering the tough sellers’ market, Stefan helped to make our experience rather enjoyable. Thank you Stefan!!” -- Buyer and Seller, Oakland
