Karen Aguilar Stephanie helped us sell our home and buy the perfect one for our growing family. She was very knowledgeable, prompt, friendly and communicated frequently via phone and text. She helped us through issues with the buyer and seller. She truly cares about you and not just the sale. That means a lot in our book and we would recommend her to anyone.
Ceridwyn Whitford Stephanie is a great person as well as a great realtor. She is fast and efficient. Responds quickly to any request. I have referred her to my friends and one of them sold their house immediately for more than they were asking.
Tina May I had the best experience ever looking for a new home. Making a big purchase can be very stressful when you are trying to stay in a price range. Stephanie was great at tailoring my search to my needs and wish list. She is very professional, flexible, and accommodated my schedule. My family is new to the area and had no knowledge of the area, therefore, we took the time to get to know the different areas.
Ozzie Huscusson I want this place!! No, I changed my mind. Lets look at others...Who can do this frustrating job? Finally, I came back to my little place that I call "The Farm"and purchased it. "The Farm" is a manufactured home on 2 acres, and it is heaven. Getting certain documents was a nightmare. the previous owners did not follow certain requirements and had not done registration and licensing. All was completed and all was finally accomplished. Then I get a letter from Pasco county with a 8,000 dollar lien on my farm. I called everywhere went to title office, tax office and to Stephanie!!!. This was the second time I had to get her involved as title company charged 660.00 for part of tabs that should have been included in sale and now this. She called and it got corrected. Over and ABOVE!!! She has guided me to title and tax offices long after sale had closed. Her love and dedication to her position, not job, is above all I have ever experienced. The Best....
Bonnie & Ray Schenone Stephanie was such a blessing to us ! We had only a few days to find a house before we went back to NC. She worked day and night with us to find the perfect home, and was very kind, patient, professional, and diligent. She continued to help us with what we could not do from NC right up to closing. She truly went above and beyond for us and cared about us.We highly recommend her, and now consider her a dear friend.
Tiffany Heil & Barb Heil Steph is one of the most thoughtful & caring human beings I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with. She made the entire home buying experience stress-free & fast. She's well-connected, knowledgable, & never hesitates to go the distance (literally)! What an awesome experience working with Stephanie. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable. We sped through the buying process effortlessly and with laughter. We will definitely go to her again.
Christine Sahyers Stephanie was a great realtor. She was patient and made my transaction stress free. I will definitely use Stephanie again for a future home purchase.
Dustin & Jess Rabbach Stephanie was very patient with us. We were completing a move from out of state and she had been assisting us with house searching for over 9 months. She let us see homes in many different areas before we finally found our ideal location.
Lauren Marie I just bought my first house yesterday after over a year and a half of searching! Stephanie walked me through the process from looking at different houses to signing the final documents. One of Stephanie’s biggest strengths is her dedication to her buyers. This woman will answer her phone ANY time you need her. Not only does she respond quickly, but she can show houses quickly and handles any issue for you. I can’t tell you how valuable that is when you are at work and don’t have the time or the sanity to deal with issues in the buying process. Even during the final walkthrough, she put blue tape all over the little blemishes I didn’t notice around my house so that they would get fixed. Stephanie told me the first day I met her that she was extremely confident that she was going to find me a place and she did. Overall, if you are looking for a realtor that is going to be reliable, quick, and a problem solver with a hint of humor, Stephanie is your girl.
Jennifer & Jeremy Seals My wife and I were blessed to meet Stephanie even before we knew what we wanted to do in terms of next steps in the selling of our old home and buying of our new. She met us late afternoon on Memorial day, a holiday which gave us an early indication of how dedicated she is. From the first discussion we had with her forward, she was always incredibly honest and such a pleasure to talk with. Over the course of the two months we worked with Stephanie, she sold our house the day it listed for over asking price, and put our minds at ease that our forever home was just around the corner. Thankfully we did find our dream home and hours after our showing we were under contract. Stephanie was with us the entire way all the way to the moment we closed, and even beyond with steady check-ins to ensure all was well. She is more than a partner in the selling and buying process, she becomes a part of the family.
John Kahne & Kathy My niece and nephew-in-laws sold and bought a home with Stephanie's assistance and they referred Stephanie to my wife and I. We were on the buying end since we had already sold our home out of state. Stephanie was great to work with and was a tireless worker on our behalf. Her knowledge of the buying process is outstanding and helped us a great deal as we had little knowledge of the inspections required and of local market conditions. Stephanie does a really nice job of helping just enough to be non-intrusive. She would let us know what decisions need to be made when, but did not steer us in any way. We used her website extensively prior to meeting with her in person. This was important to us because we were living out of state in a different time zone. The process of looking online, with Stephanie's useful filters, and finally traveling with Stephanie to look at the houses we narrowed down from the online search was very effective. We ended up up under contract during our several day visit to the Tampa area. I should note that Stephanie made herself very available to us while we were in Tampa for just a few days. In the end, we found our dream retirement home and cannot wait to be there full-time. We now consider Stephanie a friend first and our realtor second.
Christina Barnett I always recommend Stephanie if you ever need a good realtor! We used her for buying and selling. A total of 4 times and have never been disappointed. What does she do that other realtors don't? If you are selling a home, she puts out a lot of signs when doing an Open House. I was amazed on the amount of people she drew and we had so many offers that weekend! This realtor isn't afraid to work long hours, to give u great advice to be ready for open house, and answer all of your questions. She takes the pressure off and we couldn't be any happier. When buying a home, she will take u to whatever your heart desires. She is quick in responding to calls. And if you ever find yourself needing to sell or buy a property, this lady will not disappoint!!! So blessed that we have come across her because buying or selling is stressful and Stephanie will take that stress right off. Thank u thank u for all that you have done, because you have a talent to do this job!
Kathi Carlson Stephanie is the best realtor in Tampa! Professional yet warm, caring, and personable Works hard for her clients and never gets discouraged Best in town!

Doug Cloutier 5 stars !!! A++++++++++++
Kathy Brookins Recently, I sold my home in the Carrollwood area of Tampa Florida and Stephanie LeFew was my real estate agent. Upon meeting her I noticed her calm and sweet demeanor but when it came to selling my house I found out she is a "go getter" and hardworking. The day my house was listed on the internet through Coldwell Banker she was in my neighborhood passing out flyers advising the community about the open house she had planned for the next day. During the open house I had 3 offers and rest was smooth sailing due to Stephanie's professionalism. I closed within 30 days and would recommend her to anyone that is planning to sell their home. She is upfront with you and will tell you what' is a fair market list price.
Joe & Britney Muir " Hello all, My wife and I were first time home buyers and decided to reach out to Stephanie. From the very start she wanted to know about us and the background we came from to develop a good working relationship. Everytime we had a question she had the answer and was always lighting fast with a response. We only had 2 days available for house hunting and she was able to show us about 20-25 homes in about a 7 hour time frame. If you are a client of hers, you will definitely feel like her number one priority. When it came time to close out on the house we wanted, Stephanie was there for that portion as well and even gave us a little gift after it was all over. If you are looking for a realtor that has years of experience, great communication skills, knows the Tampa area, and a true professional that actually cares about you as a client, Stephanie LeFew is the right match for you. Can't recommend her enough, especially for first time home buyers "
