An Absolute Asset

Stephanie is streets ahead of other Realtors because she combines good sales acumen and outstanding organizational skills with a sharp legal brain. I used her to sell my home after my divorce in a difficult housing market and she handled all parties with grace and dignity, even when under pressure. She’s an absolute asset and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Extensive legal background

Because of Stephanie’s experience with high end properties and because of her unique marketing approach, the home that we thought might sit on the market for months received multiple offers and sold quickly. We were especially thrilled to have chosen Stephanie as our realtor when we found ourselves in a multiple offer situation. It was extremely beneficial to us to have someone with strong real estate knowledge along with an extensive legal background working with us when it came to negotiating with the buyers. She’s honest, professional, thorough, and a complete pleasure to work with.

Very thorough

Stephanie was so knowledgeable and connected in the Marin real estate market, that we were able to purchase our home off-market in a very competitive environment. She was thorough and made sure every detail in the purchase transaction was taken care of to our satisfaction. We will definitely work with her again and refer her to our friends!

Savvy and knowledgeable

Stephanie Lamarre is a savvy and knowledgeable real estate agent, balanced by great sensitivity and an understanding of her client’s needs. As first time homebuyers, she was a godsend to my husband and me. We always felt confident that Stephanie had our best interest at heart, which helped establish a level of trust essential for us to move forward and make the big jump. She was always respectful of our wishes, not pushy like other agents we had dealt with. Yet she proved to be a firm representative many times over. We are very grateful that Stephanie came along when she did. I’m not sure we could have navigated the daunting process of buying a home without her guidance.

Stephanie was a key partner

In selling our home, Stephanie was a key partner. Her market knowledge allowed the house to be presented to those individuals and families that would be buyers. Her professionalism was demonstrated during the preparation for sale through the completeness of the final documentation. Without hesitation, we would recommend Stephanie.

We really felt total trust in Stephanie

It has been a great pleasure working with Stephanie! It was so wonderful to go through this process, which is naturally stressful, with Stephanie leading us. We really felt total trust in Stephanie and appreciate the level of detail, intelligence, and thoughtfulness she put into all aspects of selling our home, including putting us at ease. I’m sure there are tons of things she had to deal with ‘behind the scenes’ to make things run so seamlessly, and we appreciate everything Stephanie did for the sale of this house. We did feel it would likely turn out well, but the response was even bigger and more efficient than we had anticipated, and I credit all that to Stephanie and the wonderful resources she connected us with.

Great Communicator

Stephanie is outstanding in every way. She is a great communicator, which was very important since I was working from [out of town]. She was extremely thorough in identifying candidate homes, assessing market value/comps, and knew the southern Marin neighborhoods extremely well. And she is very bright and professional.... I could go on and on!

She was indefatigable

I can’t imagine anyone better than Stephanie Lamarre; she is amazing, superb, and exceptional. My husband and I have repeatedly referred our friends to her and every single one has found a home they love. She is not only exceedingly bright--graduated summa cum laude from Princeton, then Stanford Law School--but she is organized, efficient, market savvy, and technologically astute. (I have bought and sold in the Woodlands and Ross through her. In a nutshell, she was indefatigable).

Above the call of duty

Stephanie helped us find the perfect home for our family, then really went above the call of duty to ensure that our transaction went through smoothly. Her level of professionalism throughout the process was reassuring; we knew that she was taking care of all the details on our behalf. We are so happy we chose her as our realtor!

I would unequivocally recommend Stephanie

We retained Stephanie to handle the sale of my parents’ house when they passed away. She was very sensitive to the feelings of all of us as we prepared to sell the house that had been our family home for over 50 years, while at the same time providing dispassionate advice and recommendations inorder to help us get the best results we could. Her team of service providers was comprised of honest, helpful and proficient craftsmen, and we were delighted with the result of the sale. I would unequivocally recommend Stephanie to anyone who wants to deal with an experienced, compassionate professional.

Knowledge of the local real estate market, strategic thinking and creative marketing

Stephanie’s knowledge of the local real estate market, strategic thinking and creative marketing resulted in the sale of our home in two weeks at full asking price as well as successfully purchasing our new home in a multiple offer situation. I could not be more pleased with her performance. Stephanie is incredibly professional and very pleasant to work with.

Always readily available and very considerate to our schedule

Stephanie is a consummate professional. She gave us immense help getting our home ready to sell with all her wonderful contacts that included handymen, painters, gardeners and staging. She was always readily available and very considerate to our schedule regarding showings. Stephanie did an outstanding job with the closing of our house; she is very detail oriented and kept us informed every step of the way.

Delighted with exceptional service

We were delighted with the exceptional service that Stephanie provided us from the initial call to ascertain our interests through to closing on our home, only 2 months later. Stephanie helped us navigate a market with limited inventory and found a home that met our needs in a superb neighborhood. We have already recommended Stephanie to friends looking to buy in Marin and will continue to do so!

Her follow through was very impressive

Stephanie managed the business/communication/legal end of selling our house with great detail. We sold $415k over asking! On the buy side, she convinced the sellers to accept an offer contingent on the sale of our home. Her follow through was very impressive

Connected to the community

Stephanie Lamarre excels at both the emotional and practical sides of home buying. She was helpful and professional while we toured homes, and her connectedness to the community meant we saw homes that were not yet technically on the market. Stephanie’s attention to detail and legal background helped us immensely as we reviewed contracts and ensured we were able to stay on track during a short escrow. We don’t want to move again, but if we do, we will work with Stephanie again

Stephanie is an artist

Buying a house is an art. A delicate dance between market timing, available inventory, and personal tastes. We had this idea, similar to most, of this Hollywood-inspired house...Then we started looking and reality stepped in. Stephanie helped us navigate these realities and worked with us to really understand what we wanted- taking that Hollywood idea and driving it into a realistic vision. We spent months sifting through homes – and with each pass Stephanie honed our combined vision – gathering an amazingly detailed picture of what we truly wanted. And then, after months of ups and downs, we found something. Correction, Stephanie found something and she knew it was us. It wasn’t the Hollywood-inspired house, it was something even better. It was spectacular, unique, and grabbed us immediately. Stephanie is an artist – there really isn’t any other way to put it. She took our interests, tastes, requirements, combined them into a tangible picture and sifted through the market to find us a wonderful and in my eyes, perfect house.

Patient, thoughtful, and honest

Stephanie is such a pleasure to work with. I recommend her to anyone I know looking for a home in Marin County. Not only is she really smart and professional, but she is very knowledgeable about Marin and the specific towns, patient, thoughtful and honest. It took us awhile to settle on the town and the home that we wanted and she never made us feel rushed. We always felt like we were a priority for her. Still, she is in touch, checks in to see how we are doing, and generally a great resource for us - I ask her questions about our town and the school etc. I consider her to be a friend and we will for sure use her again.

The most talented and hardest working agent I have worked with

Stephanie is the most talented and hardest working agent I have worked with. She is strategic and aggressive. As our listing agent, she knew who are potential buyers were because she is so active with other homes. As our buying agent, she uncovered a seller before they listed because she is so active in the community.

I can't imagine anyone with a better knowledge of the Ross Valley than Stephanie

We loved working with Stephanie for our move to Marin. Not only is she responsive to all questions/concerns, but her knowledge of not just the housing market, but also the communities themselves, has been invaluable. Even once we completed the purchase, Stephanie and her team have continued to  help us plan for our move. I can't imagine anyone with a better knowledge of the Ross Valley than Stephanie and her team, and we always enjoy spending time with her.

No expense or effort was spared

I had twice previously attempted to sell my house in Kentfield with other realtors, and had an unsuccessful and frankly unhappy experience both times. Even in a red-hot market my house was a difficult one to sell, with several flaws that turned off quite large segments of potential buyers. There was no garage or carport, and the living room was small. No expense or effort was spared to get the house marketed initially to as broad a spectrum of potential buyers as possible, and Stephanie and her team provided feedback after each open house. When no offers were received we worked out a plan that produced three offers, one of which we accepted and the sale closed. Stephanie handled the documentation perfectly and there were no hiccups. I was very relieved to finally get my house sold, and I am sure it was due to the experience and attention to detail that Stephanie brought to the sale process. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone wanting to sell a property in Marin.

Stephanie is the complete package

Stephanie is the complete package -- smart, experienced, and a tough negotiator -- all of this made the process of selling my home and buying a new home as easy as possible. Her team helped stage my prior home, and then she lined up other top-notch resources to help with all of the inspections at my new home.  All of this effort helped to maximize the money in my pocket. I truly appreciate Stephanie's eye to every detail when reviewing all of the documents, the speed with which she responded to every call, and her grit and perspectives during both negotiations.  Her assistant Marcia is a gem and is also an experienced realtor. As a single working parent, it was extremely helpful to have a team working for me! They worked very hard on my behalf; I couldn't be happier with the entire process. I highly recommend Stephanie!

Smart, knowledgable, and responsible

Stephanie Lamarre is a genuinely great realtor. She is smart, knowledgeable, and responsible. Her long track record in Marin makes her read on the market very precise. Her success in the field, allows her to not feel pressured to make any deal. As a result she is able to help the buyer feel confident that they understand the process and that she will work hard to recognize the buyer's need and preferences. At every step of the process I felt great confidence in her ability. We looked at a number of houses. She understood what I wanted and helped me find the right house. When it was time to negotiate she was strong and helped get the right price. During inspections and closing, she was very detailed and brought the deal to a good close. I give her my highest recommendation.

Stephanie is extremely professional, organized, and hardworking

Stephanie did a fantastic job of assessing what our home of seventeen years needed in order to sell in today's market. Her expertise in helping us determine which upgrades were worth the cost and which ones to skip was invaluable, and our home sold quickly for top dollar. Stephanie is extremely professional, organized, and hardworking. She always made herself available to us no matter how busy her schedule, and we marveled at her ability to remain calm, cool, collected, and pleasant even during her busiest moments. She is very savvy about the Marin market, and her background as a lawyer served us well when it came to the paperwork involved in the closing process. She is truly a delight to work with and we can't recommend her highly enough!

Acts in the best interests of her clients

We worked with Stephanie on the sale of one home and the purchase of another -- both seamless transactions. Stephanie is easy to work with, ethical, knowledgeable, accessible, and professional. She is an advocate and partner, and acts in the best interests of her clients. Stephanie's legal  background is a definitive benefit.

Highly professional, diligent, hard working & easy to work with

Stephanie first helped us organize the preparations for the sale of our home, which resulted in a successful transaction. The marketing was multi-faceted and extensive. She also helped us in our search for our new home. We felt we were kept well-informed about homes soon to hit the market. Stephanie located a home that fit our criteria in an area we may not have considered, which we acquired in a quick & smooth transaction. She is highly professional, diligent, hard working and easy to work with. Her support team is excellent as well. We would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone!
