”Steffie represented us buying our home in Belvedere. The ease of the entire transaction was remarkable! With her extensive knowledge of the market, Steffie found the perfect home for us. With superb professionalism, she demonstrated her negotiating ability for several months. Her follow up and customer service are worth mentioning, as they are first on her mind and in her actions, including chicken soup for a cold! We were totally pleased with the experience and would totally refer Steffie to others."

"Steffie is my one and only Marin realtor and has been a pleasure to work with. She KNOWS Marin County, keeps close tabs on the market, is remarkably personable, and is more responsive than I imagined any realtor could be. I don't think I could ask for anything more in my realtor! Thank you"

“Steffie was a wonderful resource as we considered buying in Tiburon. She really knows the area well. Steffie was very good at showing us properties that fit our needs and budget. She is incredibly responsive, often anticipating our questions before we even asked! Unfortunately, we didn't end up relocating to Tiburon, so never had the opportunity to negotiate a deal. I'd highly recommend her.”

“Steffie Finkelstein is an experienced and knowledgeable real estate professional with the utmost integrity. She is responsive, always available with exceptional follow-up skills.

"Steffie provided guidance, thoughtful advice and a total understanding of our situation as we purchased a home in Nashville TN. I have known Steffie for a number of years; and so when we were buying in a new city, a new market, and a new development, it made perfect sense for us to call Steffie to refer us to a local realtor. Steffie contacted several local realtors and referred us to just the right agent. She asked all the right questions of the realtors to ensure there was a client-agent match. She also listened to their views of the market in relation to our needs. She found a great realtor for us and she made us feel very much at ease when we talked to the agent. In turn, they understood and listened to us because Steffie laid the groundwork for a successful business relationship. Should we buy/sell or move again, for us, there is no need to search for a realtor and someone who would truly represent our best interests. Simply put, we would call Steffie."

“Steffie is a great agent to have on your side. She is very easy to work with, knows the area very well, and has the skills and protocols to make a stressful transaction as smooth and easy as possible. Could not recommend her more highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Southern Marin!”

“My wife met Steffie at an open house, and suggested we meet with her to discuss having her represent us in purchasing a home. When we met, we were impressed with her warmth, and knowledge of the area. Immediately, we felt at ease and confident that we had found the perfect person to be our agent.
Before we hit the road, and started our search, she explained to us how important it was in this market to be prepared and ready to pull the trigger, should the right property come along. The day after we met, Steffie called me and told me that she had identified a property that she felt we should see. We made plans to see it the following day, and that evening we submitted an offer on the home. Steffie guided us in how to structure our offer, and what to include. According to the other agent, our offer was accepted based on Steffie’s relationship with the listing agent, and his confidence in her getting the deal done, coupled with a great introductory letter written by myself and my children.
Steffie constantly kept us updated on anything else having to do with the transaction. I commented to my children that I have never had such a positive and stress-free experience purchasing a property. Her thoughtful closing gift of gift cards to two of my favorite restaurants showed me the true pro she is. She made it happen for my family, and I look forward to working together again, and referring her to all my friends, colleagues, and family.”

Steffie is THE BEST!!! We were very suddenly in the market to buy a house in this crazy housing market that is Marin. Even with the competitive nature of the market, we were not only able to a buy a house that we absolutely LOVE, but we did it in only FIVE WEEKS!!! And we did not pay cash. We had a very tough loan. Because of many challenging issues with the house and personal circumstances, it was an extremely stressful process. But Steffie made it all better, kept it on track smoothly, and even kept us laughing. I feel completely confident that she really did have our best interest at heart. She made sure our offer was accepted AND we didn't offer too much, and even got us a huge credit back from the Seller!
She is extremely professional and detail oriented. She did not miss a beat. She kept us up to date on everything blow by blow, and was seemingly available at all hours of the day and night. I felt like she bent over backwards to serve us. And once the house was closed, she was still by our side making sure we had what we needed.
She connected us with to a great contractor, and other professionals whom we needed and they were all excellent.
We feel so blessed that we were given her name by a friend and know that our lives are forever changed because of it.
We are so very happy in our new home and are so grateful for her help, care and guidance. I would recommend her to my closest family and friends. I can't imagine a better agent. She has everything we could of asked for!!

After working with such a spectacular professional it's hard to know where to begin with my comments. Steffie is simply amazing!

*Listened to what was important to us and thoughtful about the use of our time.

* Has a high level of knowledge about the area and the process of buying/selling homes.

*Helped us understand potential pitfalls but left decisions to us.

*Big communicator, which is important to us. We always knew what was happening and going to happen.

*She did several different things to help us that most realtors wouldn't, i.e., help with research on the permits/plans of the house, help connect us to professionals for a wide variety of needs relating to the house, did small errands for us in connection with the home.

*Great negotiator! The negotiations went great and we got our home for under asking and got a further reduction which Steffie was instrumental in the strategy and execution of our approach.

*Calm in the heat of battle. When things got intense, she was the calming force, always staying focused on the important issues and not being distracted by drama and helped us stay focused too!

I can not say enough about Steffie's professional approach and she would be a critical addition to my real estate team and I would have any family member work with her knowing that they would be well taken care of.

Thanks again for all your hard work Steffie!
