Client Testimonials


We had a great experience working with Stephanie St. Mary. Stephanie was knowledgeable, super responsive, and gave great advice. During negotiations she was an effective advocate for our interests: tough when she needed to be, with a sound understanding of the market and process. Not least, she was a delight to work with. We would work with her again in a heartbeat. dftaylor5


Stephanie paved the way for a very smooth sale. She helped stage our home, marketed our home and proposed a very effective strategy for receiving and reviewing offers. Once we accepted an offer she was very organized and attentive in guiding us through the various steps to closing and moving out. All of this while we were in the midst of the Coronavirus! We highly recommend Stephanie. She’s very professional. nancyhafermann


We were happy in our previous home, but were hoping for a smaller home with a view. Stephanie really listened to what we wanted and kept us apprised of any new listings that might be interesting to us. We took a leap of faith in selling our home, so that we would be ready to move on the perfect place. Within a few months, Stephanie found us exactly what we were looking for. She helped us make the winning offer, despite multiple competing offers, and we are absolutely in love with our new home. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking to make a move! berejkam


Stephanie was a delight to work with on the recent sale of our home. Her knowledge about our neighborhood and community was outstanding and she strategically and carefully helped us determine the best listing price for our property. Her approach to our listing, showings and negotiations of offers  was incredibly professional and helped us achieve top dollar in our sale. We would recommend Stephanie to both buyers and sellers.  Stacy Bjarnason


The personal interest Stephanie took in getting the house sold was outstanding. Her help in organizing for the move and transition was greatly appreciated. She left no stones unturned in helping me to get the best possible price for my home. She listened to all my concerns and was very reassuring. She is efficient and highly motivated. Anyone who works with Stephanie has an opportunity to work with the best!  Adele Davis


I like Stephanie -  her understanding of the MI market and ability to make it easy on me as a seller. She had great resources available and a very practical approach to selling a home. I do believe she maximized the sales value of our home and would recommend her. G. B.


Stephanie’s work ethic is very elite. Excellent communications. Very helpful in selling my longtime home in Medina. Patricia Callahan


My purchase was a challenge but she rose to the occasion. After losing multiple houses due to bidding wars, or issues with inspections where we needed to walk away, she kept me from losing faith and I found the perfect house for my daughters and me. To quote her: "I want to find the right house for you." And she did. It wasn't easy, but we have a great house now and it's a perfect fit. When selling, Stephanie worked with me to stage and sell my existing house. We got more than 8 offers! Stephanie helped all the way through the closing on small issues and big, and even called the movers for me when the moving day was changed due to an appraiser who didn't show up. Top service all the way. You can't ask for more. Her honest approach to house potential and value is valuable and not a sales job - rare in the market these days. Jill Hendrick


Professional, knows the market, exceptional service and communications regarding how to prepare the house for listing, pricing for the current environment. Highly qualified and experienced working with demanding clients.   B.A Rasmussen


HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Stephanie St Maryhere on the island. She was born and raised on the island, still lives here and is raising her family here, and is second generation real estate agent on the island (her mother before her). She knows the island like no one else and knows so much about neighborhoods, quirks, individual properties, even the history and details about a home. In our case, she showed us several homes listened carefully to our reactions, and then said "I know the home for you!" Unfortunately, it wasn't for sale but she knew the home -- and talked the owners into selling it to us even though it wasn't listed! I can't imagine using anyone else! Pat Petersen


Stephanie St. Mary was exceptional in her professional guidance in our purchase of our new home, and the recent sale of our home of many years. Carl Platou

Stephanie was absolutely incredible. I wholly attribute my purchase in an extremely competitive market to her guidance and negotiation ability. I couldn’t have done it without her. This was my first purchase and Stephanie brought a wealth of knowledge about the home buying process that made me comfortable and assured about my decision. She helped me through the ups and downs of losing out on an offer and negotiating a purchase price. I couldn’t have asked for anything more in a real estate agent.          Eric Bauer


Stephanie was recommended to me to help me with my remodel. She was so helpful and personable that when it was time for my son to look for a condo I recommended her to him. Stephanie worked around his schedule and was very honest about the condos we looked at pointing out the positives and negatives on each one. Stephanie helped him each step of the way. She is hard working, honest and reliable. It has been a pleasure getting to know her. I would highly recommend her for both buying and selling.          Nicole Bauer


Stephanie offers an exceptional balance of professionalism and compassion to their work. She was able to pay incredible attention to important details from staging to contract negotiating and closing the deal. I would not hesitate to engage her again on any real estate transaction.   Amy Rudolph


We listed and sold our house via Stephanie. The process could not have gone better. Stephanie was integral with prepping the house for market with a great group of providers that were both professional, reasonable and prompt. She communicated details throughout the process that were helpful, and thorough. We always knew what the next steps were as well as received great summaries of where we had been. Could not find an area to recommend for improvement. Would highly recommend Stephanie for either side of a real estate transaction. J.M.


We have worked with Stephanie for the last 1 1/2 years through 2 purchases and one sale. She is great! Very responsive and seamless. She always gave honest opinions of the pros and cons of any home…and she is fun! P.P.


Ms. St. Mary was professional, knowledgeable, efficient, responsive, thoughtful, helpful, respectful, etc. etc. I couldn't have asked for more in an agent and sales representative and partner. I have already suggested her services to numerous potential clients!    Roberta Wyde

Although 23 house moves over a 45-year period, doesn’t make me an expert, the repetitive process of buying and selling homes, it affords me a comparative frame of reference for judging the competency of real estate agents. From my experiences, I can state without reservation that Stephanie is the most professional real estate agent I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has many fine qualities … market knowledge, sound judgment and expert counsel borne from numerous transactions, empathy, etc. … But the traits I most appreciated were her listening skills (a bit of a lost art in today’s world), along with responsive, timely, consistent digital communications. For me, it was fun to collaborate with Stephanie. She listened carefully to what I wanted to achieve with the sale of my home; we jointly agreed on a strategy for doing so, and she executed flawlessly at every step in the process. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Stephanie St. Mary. Larry Dustin


I have nothing but great things to say about the real estate services we received from Stephanie St. Mary. Without her unique knowledge of the Mercer Island market, we would not have had access to the home we ultimately purchased, as it had not yet come onto the market.  Not only did she assist us in negotiating a sale on our new home that we fell in love with, but also in selling the home that we had grown out of at a great price. She was highly knowledgeable and professional in her approach to marketing our old house and communicated effectively with the other agents interested in properties for sale in our area. She was spot-on in assessing the market and priced our home accordingly resulting in a fast sale and a good return. She was respectful of our time in scheduling the open house and showings and provided assistance in staging our old home to make it stand with maximum appeal. Buying and selling a home is a stressful event and Stephanie made it a smooth and streamlined process for which my husband and I are both very grateful. I would heartily recommend her without hesitation. Mary Stoll


Professional, responsive. Good listener and negotiator. Thomas Beckwith
