"Stephanie helped us to buy our first house on the main line after living in Philadelphia. As first time home buyers we needed a lot of guidance, and Stephanie was so patient and helpful and found us the perfect house after a few months of searching. We have often said how lucky we are to have ended up in such a great neighborhood, but Stephanie knew exactly what we wanted and as soon as the house came on the market she had us come see it. She is very professional, and her background as an attorney is certainly helpful for negotiating contracts. We would without hesitation recommend Stephanie to anyone." - Stephanie I.
"We enjoyed working with Stephanie MacDonald. Stephanie helped us purchase our first home and made the process very easy. She was amazingly responsive and accommodating to our schedules. For example, I emailed her at 8:00am asking if I could look at a few houses that day, and I sent her a list of eight houses that interested me. By 10:00am she had secured appointments to all of the houses and we had a great day touring the homes. She was always very responsive, even when she was on her family vacation, and provided assistance that went above and beyond, such as helping us find a preschool for our son. On the actual closing day, the seller had failed to complete a few minor projects on the house and Stephanie immediately went into action and arranged for everything to be resolved that day. We really appreciated her assistance throughout the search, negotiation, and closing process." - Ryan B.
"Stephanie was our realtor for both the purchase of our new home and sale of our previous one, both in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. I contacted her on a recommendation from a coworker and not once did she lead us astray. Stephanie was patient with us as buyers and was up for a fairly aggressive search schedule. We wound up seeing 18 homes over two back to back weekends. She encouraged us to see as much as we could and take as much time as we needed, and instilled the confidence in us that we would know it when we saw it. When it came time to make an offer and negotiate with the sellers, she was on our team all the way and it was clear she was looking out for our interests (instead of just passing information back and forth). Stephanie thinks strategically, ensuring that the sellers' agent cancelled a scheduled open house when we put our offer in. She works hard to see issues through, and is strict about keeping people to deadlines. As our agent as sellers, Stephanie provided clear guidance about steps to take to ensure we would receive maximum value for our home. It wound up being some work but in the end, she was right. The listing photos were beautiful, and we had six showings the first full day the property was listed and an offer in our email the next day. We continued to show the house during the response period, in hopes of securing another offer. Stephanie again helped us negotiate the offer, this time back upward to get as close to list price as we could. We were ultimately happy with the final sale price and the little amount of work we wound up having to do following the home inspection. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone, and will call on her again should the need arise." - Liz P
"Stephanie has helped me with 3 real estate transactions: purchase and then sale of a condo in Center City Philadelphia, and a purchase of a single family home in Havertown, PA. The purchase of the center city condo ended up being a difficult transaction where the sale nearly fell through. Stephanie's legal background was definitely beneficial in this situation. She helped navigate the issues with the seller and the seller's agent and made what was a very stressful situation work out for the best in the end. I have always felt that the advice she provided was unbiased and that she was working in my best interest. She was very helpful and easy to work with for all three transactions. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends who are looking for an agent." - Maureen T.
"Stephanie worked tirelessly to find us our new home. Her knowledge of the local market is comprehensive and she made sure that she knew exactly what type of property we were after. Once she knew our preferences...she was onto it and didn't stop until we had found "the one". Her realistic grasp of particular property values ensured that we didn't pay too much, which may well have happened without her as a reality check! Stephanie is professional and efficient and smoothly walked us through the process from beginning to end." - Catherine
