“We were looking to purchase a weekend home in the St. Louis area. We had a vague idea what we wanted in the home, but no real idea where to look or what we would get for our budget.
We looked at STL real estate firms and online found great reviews and values we liked at Garcia Properties. So, we emailed them, explained our vague plan, and asked for their best agent to handle our needs.
They proposed Stefan Kelly. Excellent choice. We hit it off immediately. After a quick call to learn what we were looking for, Stefan set off that day to find us several choices with the features we wanted. He understood the neighborhoods, steered us away from a property that looked nice in the online pictures, but from his experience inside it would not meet our needs, and quickly got us a bunch of candidates to look into. He communicated well with us--always professional, yet personal too. He made us feel important and fully considered our needs, wants, and budget to help us find our new home.
Since we are not in the area, Stefan went to the property we decided to put an offer in and did a video tour of the property from the street to the interior features. He commented on what he saw and took the time to focus on items especially important to us.
Upon finding one we wanted to pursue, Stefan took charge and helped make the offer, the negotiation, the inspection, and the closing process as painless and quick as it could be. One month later, we have the home we wanted and are ready to enjoy it.”
