Stephanie understands that buying or selling a home changes peoples’ lives. It places them in a new environment, introduces them to new friends and shapes their life experience. A person’s home becomes the vessel for their traditions and memories, and even an extension of their identity. To be a part of that personal journey is a great honor that she cares about deeply. She knows that each and every client and transaction is unique. She has built her career on careful listening and asking the right questions so that she can facilitate and engage her clients in a way that works for them and totally satisfies their objectives. Having worked with people from many backgrounds and age groups, Stephanie is well equipped to understand today’s buyers and sellers by helping them to articulate and achieve their real estate goals.
In her words, “Living in Northern California has been an amazing experience. For the past two decades I’ve lived in multiple cities from San Francisco to San Jose and along the peninsula, witnessing the incredible growth and development of the greater Bay Area. Everyday, I marvel at the beauty and buzz of this fascinating place and I feel so fortunate to call it Home. I’ve loved raising my young twin daughters here with my husband, Dan, and our wide circle of family and friends.”
Stephanie holds a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts), MBA (Master of Business Administration) and MIM (Master of International Management). She has traveled to 50 countries, including backpacking for 5 months in Europe and Africa. She is also a health and fitness enthusiast, a certified Personal Trainer and has completed six half marathons. She enjoys hiking the many scenic coastal and mountain trails around her home in Half Moon Bay.
" Want your home sold fast and for a good price? CHOOSE STEPHANIE SILLS, a highly skilled, hardworking, effective real estate agent! Thanks to Stephanie and her team, my home was prepared and marketed to generate strong interest even before the listing hit MLS! She executed a GREAT sales strategy and got results. We received THREE OFFERS within 30 days – during a softening market AND the slowest selling season of the year! Stephanie and her team were immensely helpful to me since I live outside of Half Moon Bay. Stephanie... ** orchestrated the entire process, including: cleaning, repairs, painting, staging, landscaping and inspections ** maintained regular and detailed communication with me Being able to rely on my agent to handle everything was crucial to me! Stephanie – not an underling... ** did all the market data analysis, marketing, open houses, and diligent follow up ** was always 100% on top of every detail ** took great care in listening, understanding my needs and keeping me updated. I’ve worked with many realtors, but have never experienced a realtor as exceptional as Stephanie Sills. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone buying or selling real estate on the Bay Area Coastside or Peninsula. Stephanie Sills is definitely a 5-STAR AGENT!" Alice W.
" BACKGROUND - Completely new to the area, had no contacts. Met and interacted with Stephanie as a selling agent. Converted her to be our buying agent. Experienced both selling & buying sides of Stephanie and can say, she's amazing.
WHY STEPHANIE'S AWESOME
- QUICK. Responsive around the clock.
- WELL-CONNECTED. Provided hyper-local knowledge, assets, contacts, network, knowledge, etc.
- CHARMING. Pleasant to work with through an intimidating and (sometimes unpleasant for first time homebuyers) process.
- EXPERIENCED. Anticipated our needs and fixed/solved problems for us we didn't even know we had before they hit us.
- SMART. Advised us well on strategy and negotiation tactics.
- OVER-ACHIEVER. Went above and beyond to accommodate our requests.
GO WITH STEPHANIE! Working with Stephanie is a no-brainer. She's best-in-class and offers superior service to many of the agents we interviewed or interacted with. Stephanie gave us the careful time and attention we deserve to find a home that will give us the best quality of life here as new residents. " TuHan P.
"I can say with full confidence that Stephanie will guide you through the complicated process of buying a home with care and consistent support, if you are considering choosing her as her agent. I can never thank her enough for being always there form me, and managing my and her schedules to insure timely submissions of all documents necessary to finalize the process. I mentioned to Stephanie that I felt like she treated me as a sister, whom she truly wanted to find the best fit in finding a home, and to insure as painless process as possible, knowing I am a single and full time employed mom. From our first meeting Stephanie made sure she learned about mine and my teenager's lifestyles and needs, and she worked tirelessly to show us properties on the Half Moon Bay Coastside and Peninsula that would fit our desires. In just 7 weeks we were able to identify and to purchase the perfect home for our family! I was very happy with her excellent market expertise, communication and service. She was completely on top of all the details. Without her holding my hand through the process, the experience would have been much more stressful. I am so grateful that my colleague referred me to Stephanie and that I contacted her! With 100% confidence, I will refer her to everyone I know who needs an outstanding real estate agent to help them buy or sell a home." Natalia W.
"Stephanie was a pleasure to work with. She is hard working but also easy to talk to and communicate with. It was always nice to see her and tour a potential property together. She understood that we were looking for a specific type of property and she paid careful attention to our needs. I would highly recommend her to friends and family in search of their dream home. " Susannah M.
"We'd essentially given up on being able to buy a home in Half Moon Bay. We just couldn't seem to catch a break - then Stephanie stepped in. She went "above and beyond" in every sense of the phrase. Anything she could do to give us a leg up on finding a home that could work for us she did - she gave us hope. More importantly she found us a home - and quickly too! From the initial search through contract and escrow Stephanie put in the work to make our dreams come true. She took care of our needs, got answers to our questions, and allowed our dream of home-ownership to become a reality. I'd recommend Stephanie to anyone seeking to find their home!" Matthew. A
"Stephanie is the real estate professional you want. You can trust her. She takes the time to learn what you're after, then applies her in depth knowledge of the Coastside to effectively advocate for you. She has the eye of an artist, she's light-hearted yet serious, she has the business acumen of a seasoned negotiator and loads of integrity. It's the perfect blend whether you're buying or selling. 6/5 stars!!" Ryan. A
