It takes a village!
Over my 27 years in real estate, I have worked with many service providers; some good, some not so good and some Excellent. These are the people I trust the most to help me help you.
Melinda Kirkwood, a Certified Transaction Coordinator & Owner of Superior Transactions. I’ve been working with Melinda for 11 of her 32 years in the business. She makes sure all paperwork is in the files, with all signatures, initials & dates, so our transactions close…on time…and our butts are covered.
Christina Smolskis, an Executive Title Rep. with Lawyers Title, a leading provider of title insurance, protecting buyers and their lenders against claims questioning legal ownership of properties. They pay all legal fees if a claim ever rises after the close of escrow. Christina has been part of my team for 5 of her 20 years in the business.
Donna Wilke, has been my Escrow Officer for 6 years out of her 25 years of experience. Unless I’m convinced otherwise, Honor Escrow has the best success for closing your escrow, on time. She handles residential and commercial real estate closings very well, especially the difficult ones, and is always available for me.
Colleen Rogers, is the Operating Principal for our company. For such a young gal, she has an Awesome head for business and I have been very fortunate to be a part of her family of companies and growth for nearly 12 years. She brings a wealth of helpful knowledge and tools, that she has amassed in her 19 year career.
Erik Messinger, is the Broker of Record for our company. He’s the guy whose license is on the line if something goes south in a transaction. That why he continually keeps us informed of new regulations, forms and scams to watch out for. Erik has been a part of our team for 10 of his 30 years in the industry.
John & Melissa Hammond, are the owners of Hammond Inspection Services. I have been calling on them to inform and protect my buyers by providing thorough inspections & delivering timely reports, for 8 of their 12 years in the business. They also conduct Mold Inspections which is very handy.
Mark Burkhardt, is the Team Leader (manager) of two of our offices. He has his hands full with nearly 550 agents needing his guidance, yet he always has time for me. Mark has been helping me help you for 5 of his 40 years in the business.
Scott Stephens, Licensed Realtor since 1994, and bringing you this information to protect you and your loved ones. I have never had a claim against my real estate license (check any license here https://www2.dre.ca.gov/PublicASP/pplinfo.asp), and I want to keep it that way. That’s why I only work with people who have the same impeccable work ethics.
Justina Brogan, has been my Marketing Director for 5 years. She has such a keen eye and attention to detail, and has developed a Fabulous array of marketing pieces to help me help sellers maximize profits.
Jeff Johnson has been my Inspection Repair Specialist for my entire 27-year career. Why? Because his 40 years of construction experience help buyers and sellers accomplish what they want without breaking the bank.
Renae Alanis & Huy Tran, of Excelerate Capital, with over 34 years and 10 years respectively, have more loan options to help my buyers and sellers than anyone I know. They’ve been going to bat for my clients (no matter what their financial situation is) for 3 years, and they’ll double check buyer qualifications for my sellers to bring our transactions to fruition.
I also have assembled a list of over 260 vendors that I and my fellow agents have worked with over the years that I am happy to share. This wealth of experience is yours when you call Scott Stephens to handle your real estate transactions.
