A TRI-VALLEY INSIDER WITH A HANDS-ON APPROACH TO REAL ESTATE
For award-winning agent Stephany Jenkins, working in real estate isn’t just a job—it’s her passion. She’s always known she wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a real estate agent, so she launched her career at age 25 and never looked back. Since then, the Santa Cruz native and Pleasanton resident has become a top agent in the Tri-Valley, moving nearly $30 million in volume and boasting a 98-percent client retention rate that leads to repeat business.
“I truly enjoy every part of real estate,” she says. “This doesn’t feel like a job. I love it so much that I have a hard time shutting it down. … It’s always interesting, always changing, and always a topic of conversation.”
KEEPING UP WITH THE CLIENTS
As a longtime Tri-Valley resident, Jenkins is a bonafide real estate expert in the region and leverages her wealth of first-hand knowledge to help her clients buy and sell homes here; her insider information enables them to make the right decision for their desired lifestyle.
For clients looking to purchase a home, Jenkins works closely with them to find the ideal property at the right price, including all of the neighborhood amenities that matter. To do this, she spends time learning about her clients’ needs and what they’re looking for—such as a great school district, a vibrant downtown scene, a quieter atmosphere, or close proximity to open spaces—and uses her familiarity with the region to show them homes in the best areas based on their preferences. Given the diversity of properties in the Tri-Valley, having this guidance is critical in finding the perfect home.
When it comes to helping clients sell their homes, her goal is to take the stress out of selling and to get them top dollar in the shortest amount of time. From start to close, Jenkins takes care of everything. She will create a marketing plan, stage homes, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing. She’s truly by her clients’ side through it all, offering suggestions and ensuring needs are being met.
No matter what Jenkins is assisting you with, you can rest assured that she has your best interests at heart. “I will work hard to accommodate whatever your needs are, whether it’s finding a place, selling a place, or moving up,” she says. “I’m not just there for the sale; I’m there to learn about you and your needs. It’s all about building the relationship. … My relationships with clients last long after the transaction as well—hopefully forever.”
Jenkins is driven not only by her passion for helping people, but also by her love for the Tri-Valley community. She enjoys visiting the local parks, going to the farmers market, spending time downtown, hiking the numerous trails, and getting to know her neighbors.
“I’m such a people person,” Jenkins says, “so I love that I get to meet new people constantly, and I love the sense of community that we have here. I have two kids in elementary school, and I can’t think of a better place that I’d want them to grow up. There’s always something to do, and if you want to get out of town, you have the beach an hour away, the mountains a couple of hours away, San Francisco less than an hour away—there are so many beautiful places to see, it’s just never-ending.”
IN BUSINESS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS
First and foremost, my business is centered around taking care of your needs. A licensed real estate agent since 2001 and with over 25 years of sales and marketing experience, I know just how to make that happen. As a mother of 2 and an active member of the Tri-Valley community with the Dublin Rotary and Pleasanton Mothers Club, I have a vested interest in helping members of Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore and the surrounding areas feel at home here!
My real estate specialties are in residential homes and new construction. Coupled with my professional experience and my personal drive to help our community members, I look forward to continuing to help my neighbors in the Tri-Valley whether they’re moving up, moving down or just moving around.
Since I have been active in the Pleasanton Mothers club for many years, I have been lucky enough to work with buyers who are just moving into the area. If you are not familiar with the area I would love to show you around and provide you with the highlights that would be important to you and your lifestyle! This area has so much to offer people at any age and stage of their lives.
If you are looking to sell your home, please allow me the opportunity to present my marketing plan with you and go over my professional services that are included when you list your home with me. My goal is to take the stress out of selling your home and to help you get top dollar in the shortest amount of time.
As an agent who’s an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
SELL A HOME
When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
CONSULT ON HOME SELLING TACTICS
Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.
