Selling the family home is never easy. It felt quite overwhelming. LeAnn and Stephanie came right in, accessed what needed to be done and arranged it all. In no time my home was on the market... and sold for more than expected ! Immediately we began looking for a new home. Again, there was LeAnn and Stephanie showing us every possible property. Within weeks we found our new dream home. Between the selling and the buying we felt completely taken care of and listened to. Between the two realtors there is a sense of knowledge and professionalism that comes with great experience. We are still basking in our good fortune in this difficult market.

Outside of those of us who make a living in the real estate industry, a property sale is a rare experience in our lives. For most us it's also almost certain to be an emotional one. Whether you're imagining what the baby's room will look like, dreaming of the home you'll build, or just hoping your bid on that perfect house will be accepted, a property deal is a process of not just head, but heart. That goes double when the sale follows the loss of a loved one. When my family and I began the process of selling my father's property in El Sereno, CA following his death, we knew little about how what we needed except for a lot of help. We found not only help but an ally, a real estate professional and a friend in Stephanie Miller. I began by asking several realtors for a comparative market analysis. I was immediately impressed by Ms. Miller's thorough, thoughtful analysis which was far and away the most reasonable and careful one done. We hired Ms. Miller based on her fantastic work and were soon even more glad we had. Suffice it to say, my dad left us with a mess, both figuratively and literally. The state of the property was atrocious and it is in a difficult part of town to market. Add to that the fact time and again we were made outrageously high, fly-by-night offers only to have them back away. Selling that property was a ... I'll admit it ... something of a nightmare. Yet Ms. Miller was an absolute rock. I can't even count how many times she calmed and patiently counseled difficult family members. She protected us from less-than-desirable prospective buyers. How much time she spent fixing legal issues and fighting for us, her clients, with other reactors I don't even know. She kept multiple family members informed and juggled it all with a go getter attitude, never once losing her belief and goal of getting it sold for seven months. Seven. Long. Months. I've been a professional journalist for a long time. I have met thousands of people in thousands of professions. I mean it with all my heart, soul and experience when I say I have GENUINELY never met a more dedicated, honest, real, hard working, loyal, knowledgeable, professional person than Stephanie Miller. When the property sold at last to a wonderful family who plans to raise their own family on the land I grew up in (which makes me nostalgic and happy) we all celebrated. It was a great feeling to not only have it done, but done right. You will likely only but or sell a piece of property a few times in life at most. If you want the best, brightest, most knowledgeable realtor in Southern California by your side in that process, choose Stephanie Miller every time.

My sister and I had a very complicated piece of property to sell. It was divided into different parcels with different tax rules, sale conditions, etc. On top of that, neither of us live in the LA area so we had to do the entire sale remotely. Stephanie handled everything for us. She listed the property, found us an escrow company and worked with them to solve the technical challenges of the sale, then she engaged literally hundreds of potential buyers until she got us the price we wanted. I recommend Stephanie fit for any type of real estate purchase or sale. She is tough, dedicated and willing to do the research when things get complicated

Stephanie handled the sale of my mother’s property in San Gabriel. She carefully guided her through each step of the selling process, helping navigate repairs, inspections, termite reports and marketing the property. I live in Minnesota, so it was difficult for me to help her with this process. I came out when the property went on the market and Stephanie carefully planned for the caravans, open house and showings so it did not impact my mother too much as she was in ill health. She even presented the 6 offers to us when my mother was in the hospital at Kaiser! I appreciate her kindness and compassion while also benefiting from her professionalism and negotiation skills. She was a true gem to my mother and my family! We were overwhelmed with the distance and she effectively made the whole process fairly painless. I would recommend her highly to anyone!
