Stefan is driven by the belief that he has an obligation to each of his customers to help them make the best possible real estate decisions. He recognizes that his success is not measured by sales volume alone, but more importantly by successfully helping clients navigate one of the largest and most complex business transactions they will encounter. He stresses integrity and honest communication from the initial consultation through final closing and beyond.
Stefan has lived in Silicon Valley his entire life. With a BS degree in Business Finance from Santa Clara University and additional training in negotiation, contracts, and disclosures, he is considered by clients and colleagues alike as one of the leading real estate professionals in the Bay Area. As such, he is often consulted by the media regarding local real estate market trends. Stefan has been a Realtor since 1992 and has achieved many milestones during his career:
* He has been named a member of the Alain Pinel Realtors President's Roundtable, comprised of the top 5% of all Alain Pinel agents based upon sales production
* He is ranked by San Jose Magazine as one of the top 5% of all agents in Santa Clara County based on sales production
* He is a licensed real estate broker (a designation achieved by only approximately 15% of all agents), and as such has obtained superior experience and expertise, and is held to a higher standard of care
* He has been recognized by an independent business ranking firm for excellence in customer service with one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings ever recorded, based on direct input from past customers.
Although business success is important, Stefan's primary objective is to provide his clients with the highest quality real estate service available. "My approach to my work is simple," he says. "I treat people the way I would like to be treated in the same situation. I honestly care about the people I represent, and feel it is my job to get them the best deal possible and make sure their interests are protected. For me, the exciting part of the job isn't getting paid, it's knowing I did the very best for my client. That's why I treat each listing and sale as if it were my own personal transaction. "
Stefan's unwavering commitment to protecting his clients' interests is reflected in the majority of his business coming from repeat customers and recommendations from past clients.
