It is so exciting to me to help First Time Home Buyers. I love to see the look on their face when we find houses that excite them and are exactly what they have been dreaming about.
I love to touch so many people's lives and help to make their dreams a reality. I work hard to negotiate the absolute best deal for my buyers and help to take a lot of the guess work out of the experience, which makes it a fun and exciting experience that they can tell their friends and family about.
I have a great team to assist my buyers, a wonderful mortgage person, Craig Nesbitt with Apex Lending. He has such a wonderful presence and knowlege. As a result, everyone that I have forwarded to him for financing options has just loved him and felt very comfortable with their new home purchase. He has hands down beat what the other lenders had offered the potential home buyer. Also, Anchor Title in Tampa takes all the guess work out of the closing. They are also very courteous and careful to explain all the details about the closing.
My services are FREE to Buyers. I also share my commission with my buyers -- the seller pays me and I share a percentage of that commission with my Buyer. The new home owner can use that money on anything they want. It is exciting also to see the look on their face when they see the amount and they tell me what they are going to spend it on. It also helps with referrals that I receive.
I also assist homeowners that need to sell quickly. I actually started out in real estate as a real estate investor. We assisted a lot of people since we started in pre-foreclosures since 2001. I now list the house, find the buyer and negotiate the deal with the banks in a shortsale. Shortsale is what is required when a homeowner owes more than the house is worth, when they are behind in payments. When this occurs, I submit the offer to the bank and negotiate with the Bank in order for them to accept less than what it is worth in order to sell the house quickly, in order to assist the homeowner in selling the house quickly so that they do not have a completed foreclosure on their credit. That is what the seller needs to avoid at all costs, as this is the worst thing that you can have on your credit. Although, I have sold houses to people that have had a completed foreclosure. It is not the end of the world, but when foreclosure can be avoided, it is the absolute best thing.
I work in four counties - Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando, and Pinellas Counties and would love to add you to my long list of happy home buyers and home sellers.

Stephanie LeFew Testimonials
Omar & Shantell Reid
We are now proud home owners thanks to the excellent display of professionalism displayed by our realtor Stephanie Lefew. My wife and I recall how thorough yet simple Stephanie was when she explained complex paper work including contracts and disclosures. During the house hunting process our family was blessed with an additional member- our son; our work hours and free time was almost near inflexible, but Stephanie adjusted her time to accommodate us and accompanied us to over 250miles and over 17 hours of distant, travel and tour time. Not to mention she was easily accessible by phone, text message and email- she kept us happy and in the loop. It was a pleasure to have done business with Stephanie; especially when she mediated for us when the mortgage company and the Title Company became negligent in maintaining and providing accurate information (she always knew what to say). The incentive program Stephanie offers allowed us to save on upgrades we made to our home leaving us with more cash in hand to buy furniture and pay for moving costs. Our overall experience with Stephanie was topnotch, and with confidence we would recommend her to any prospective home buyer who desires or appreciates exceptional service.
