Kami and her team were the best! I would recommend her and her team to anyone! They kept us in the loop the whole time, worked around the clock to make sure the process went smooth! We loved Kami and Michael and are extremely glad we found them to help us during the buying of our new home!

- Travis Stombaugh

Kami and Michael were great to work with. They made sure I understood all of the steps, provided good advice on the options I looked at, and were quick to warn me off of places that didn’t seem like the perfect fit when I was starting to get a little antsy to get things moving. Michael was also very quick to set up appointments for showings when I was interested, and went by on his own to look at places and give feedback when I couldn’t get there immediately.

I would strongly recommend Kami and her team.

- Steven Whaley

I bought my investment property from overseas so Kami was my eyes, ears on the ground, providing the trustworthy advice and experience I needed for such a large and potentially risky undertaking – purchasing a home sight unseen. Portland is a busy, thriving real estate market, so Kami’s time is stretched thin, but based on her diligence before – and her assistance after the sale – along with her keen sense Portland market, she will be my go-to buyer’s agent in the future.

- Anonymous

Kami and team are so amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a more helpful and understanding team in this process. Finding a house is not easy in this market and Michael was so helpful and patient with us, not allowing us to get into something we weren’t happy with. Kami and Michael could have easily rushed us along to get paid sooner but they were so amazing and helpful and made sure we got exactly what we were looking for. I will recommend them to everyone who shows any interest in buying a house! Amazing!

- Melanie

When there is a seller’s market it is easy for some realtors to feel like they possess skills and expertise they in fact don’t. In our case, selling our house was far from a slamdunk and required persistence, negotiation, and a lot of local market knowledge to get the deal done. Stephen FitzMaurice and Jennifer Tangvald from his team were excellent in their follow up and follow through, constant reassurance, and persistence. I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking to sell a house in Portland Oregon.

- Henry Ferguson

The Stephen FitzMaurice Team recommended the prefect listing price for the condition of my house. Their knowledge of the market and pricing seemed to generate interest in realtors wanting to show my house. I counted 14 realtor business cards on the kitchen counter. I was pleasantly surprised to see offers coming in despite being so close to Thanksgiving and Christmas…

… I want to specifically recognize Jeremy Wilkerson of the Stephen FitzMaurice Team. Jeremy made the entire selling process easy and smooth. Jeremy gave me sound advise and all decisions were mine with no pressure. My only wish is that I could Jeremy Wilkerson and the entire Stephen FitzMaurice Team a higher rating than the Zillow 5 star limit.

- Steven

Kim Woodhouse was the best and I am so glad to have her help in selling my home! She was very knowledgeable and didn’t seem to mind one bit my numerous phone calls, texts and emails. Kim walked me through the process and I always felt she had everything under control which eased my mind greatly as I was also preoccupied in buying a house in another city. Kim comes highly recommended in my book! Thanks so much, Kim!

- Matthew

We worked with Jeremy Wilkerson and his team. They had progressive strategies to market our home and make sure it was at the top of search results! We ended up getting multiple offers and sold above list price. The professional approach was excellent!

- Kelly Roche

Today, the sale of our home closed and the new buyers are now happily calling it their home. I am thrilled for them and I am thrilled for us. If I could give more than five stars to the Stephen FitzMaurice Team, I would happily do so. Our realtor, Jeremy Wilkerson and his staff, deserve far more than five stars.

From the start, Jeremy had a detailed plan of the things we needed to do in preparation for selling our home. We followed his instructions and completed the preparations required. Once done, we simply stepped out of the way for him to do his job. He was professional, patient, and always readily accessible. He was also diligent in pursuing and tracking the progress of the sale and in keeping us informed on its status.

Our home would not have sold as quickly (sale sign up on Friday, sold at open house on Sunday) had he not given us wise tips and suggestions on how we could present our home so others could see its beauty and possibilities through our eyes. He invited us to contact him any time during the whole process with any questions or concerns. He meant it, too. He unfailingly responded to our phone calls, texts, emails, making himself available to us as we had questions and concerns.

We considered several realtors before choosing Jeremy. From the moment we met him, we just knew. We believed then, and are convinced now, that he was an answer to our prayers. Over the years we have bought/sold homes and, hands down, Jeremy has far surpassed the experiences we’ve had with most of them. If you are considering selling your home or buying one, please give these folks a call. You won’t regret it and will find you are telling your friends and loved ones about them. That’s exactly what we’re doing!

- Kay

We have used Stephen and his team twice now. Once buying a house and once selling a house. Both times have went amazing and smooth. He was easy to get ahold of and returns calls and/or emails very quickly no matter what day it was. His fees are less than most AND he does more than most realtors to sell your house. Advertising, professional photographer, home warranty, the list goes on. I highly recommend Stephen and his team to anyone buying or selling a house.

- Ben & Tina

Stephen and his entire team are extremely good at what they do and the results prove it! His knowledge of how best to buy or sell a home in the current market is exceptional. Stephen has done his homework and knows how to find the right buyers or sellers depending on your need. In my case, he knew exactly how to position my property for a quick sale at an excellent price. Even though my transaction was the sale of a house I’m sure his expertise at finding and negotiating the purchase of a new home is just as efficient and effective.

He has built a team that will communicate with you, guide you, inform you and make you feel surrounded by professionals every step of the way. I highly recommend Stephen Fitzmaurice and his team. They will serve you well and provide you with good results.

- Greg

Stephen listed our home and it was sold In a matter of days. It was like a well choreographed play with Stephen as director and each member of his team stepping in to do their part at just the right time.

- Dale & Bette

My experience was amazing with Kami and her team. From the first meeting we had she explains everything in details and as soon as they understood our requirement since we were new to Portland area, Sharlyn Anderson from her team found a list of suggested places and gave us date night suggestion to discover the areas we want to live in. After that we found the place we liked from the first round of showing and started the buying experience.

 

At this stage Kami used all her talent to get us the house with the best price we can have it for. She helps you to put the right offer and the right strategy to come back and counter offer. I highly recommend them to any person either new to the area or not. They are simply amazing!

- Tamer R

Their process for selling and purchasing a home is very well established. If I had a question at any point along the way, there was always a person I could contact who specialized in that area. In this crazy market of home buying, Katie and Kami were always available to jump on leads that had just come onto the market. Their diligence helped make my home purchase a reality.

- Mark

Kami was our agent when we bought our home in Sellwood. Over the course of more than a year she took great pains to understand exactly what we wanted in a home (size, location, walkability, etc.) on the inner eastside and to find homes that fit our profile. She helped us buy a wonderful home at an affordable price.

- Barbara Y.

Working with Stephen and Jennifer exceeded my expectations. I wanted to save as much money as possible so I searched for a real estate agent with a lower commission. I found Stephen’s website, watched his video and liked what I saw. Upon meeting I was given preliminary numbers which matched, and the final sale price was greatly above the listing price! I am VERY satisfied. Stephen cares more about selling your house than his fees. He delivered as promised. I would work with Stephen and Jennifer again in a heartbeat, and recommend their team to anyone.

- Ian

I had been in the hands of another agent for months and it was going poorly. Stephen and his team took on my (now stale) listing and had it sold in days, closed in weeks. Excellent marketing, communication, negotiation, and closing.

- M Engel

Kami and Katie were a great resource. They had excellent knowledge of the area and the market. I received a response to every question within 15 minutes. They were able to coordinate everything and allowed for a smooth transition even when I was out of the country.

- Thomas

We did not have the smoothest transition from TX to OR. Bumps all along our road. However, Kami and her team were there for us over each hurdle, and I was always assured that they were advocating and working for us, allowing us to handle all the other details of our move. I would highly recommend Kami and her team when purchasing or selling a home. Honest, hard-working, friendly, and ethical.

- Deb Mathis

I knew that Stephen Maurice came with some great credentials before I decided to hire him to sell our house. What I did not know was that he was going to sell our house with in 2 days with multiple offers at 16K over our original asking price. He said he was going to do just that and he did. We were extremely happy and and fortunate that we were able to have Stephen and his back up team (Jennifer, who was also fantastic) to sell our house. They took care of all the details from start to finish. We would not think of going with any body else.

- Tom & Johanna

Kami and her team (Sharlyn) were very responsive and professional. They helped us a lot to understand the “unusual” process of buying home in Portland where you have to offer more that the listing price. They helped us go through the process and learn.

- Arash

Turnkey operation in a nutshell. That’s how I can explain this whole transaction for us. From the get go we sat down and discussed how it all works. I had never sold a home before so it was all new to me. Stephen walked me through it all. He explained how his team all works on the different parts and provided me with lots of data and stats. Our house sold in 10 days and we got more than what we asked for. They are able to get your house on the internet and make it shine. Also, they only ask for 4.5% to boot for all you get! I’m sold!

- Doug & Sherry

My experience working with the Stephen FitzMaurice team was outstanding. They were professional (and kind when I needed a bit of reassurance in the midst of the process) and focused in on selling my home and keeping me in the loop. My experience with this team vastly out performed other realtors I have worked with. They were knowledgeable about the market in my area and confidently recommended a price for my home to let the market max it out. It did indeed! I was so impressed and would recommend this team to anyone selling their home.

- Susan B

This is a great team of people. Every step is covered, every call is answered and each step of the process is with your agent. I appreciate the hard work and great personalities. I definitely recommend them!

- Sue M

Stephen FitzMaurice is a very professional and friendly team. A pleasant surprise working with them. They were responsive to my requests and made sure to contact me daily. Their plan and estimates were very accurate and the house sold quickly. I would highly recommend them.

- Kimberly & Deandre

Ten offers in four days. What else can I say? They provided us with personalized attention, great communication and a very streamlined plan of action. I like all the tools Stephen’s team uses to get the job done.

- Esther

Stephen and Jennifer were wonderful to work with. They provided to me a step by step plan/agenda, and I knew what to expect throughout the process. I would recommend them to friends and family, and use them again as well.

- Anne H

From the initial contact through every aspect of the marketing and then the sales process, including negotiation, Steve and his crew were just great! He was diligent in keeping us in the loop, forthright in his advice, and showed great attention to detail (and there were many details!). I would without reservation, encourage anyone considering listing their property with a realtor to get in touch with “The Stephen Fitzmaurice Team.”

- Charles H

It’s easy to see why Stephen sells so many homes. Besides being a genuinely nice person, he is also a true professional. From expert analysis of current market conditions at our first meeting, right on through negotiations with multiple bidders and a successful close, we couldn’t have asked for any higher level of service than what we received from Stephen and his assistant Jennifer. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen and his team to anyone looking to sell property in the Portland area.

- Brandon

Stephen and his team did a great job getting my house sold. He came in with real data and suggestions for how to get the most value out of the home. If I would have only selected him when I tried to sell back in October of 2015 I would have gotten even more money for my house.

- Andrew

Stephen was awesome. He had my property listed in 3 days after my meeting with him and sold the property in 4 days above the listing price. He was very responsive to my requests and was always on the ball.

- Nancy R

We absolutely loved the personal experience we got and the team was always so responsive to our questions even when they should have been “off the clock”. I would recommend them to everyone!

- Dale

Great customer service . I was out of town for some of my transaction and things went very smoothly. A very professional company. Always would call right back if i had a question witch was greatly appreciated. I would definitely use Stephen for all my real estate needs. I highly recommend Stephen and his crew.

- Brent

First rate service for a bargain price. Very painless and easy for us as a seller. Our house sold within our hopeful timeline and above our target price. I would use Stephen and his team again in a heartbeat, and I highly recommend his services to others looking to sell their home. They definitely know how to sell a house.

- Michael

Look no further…This team is top notch. They are fast, friendly, thorough, profession, reasonable and competent. I couldn’t believe how easy it was for me as a seller to complete the sale of our home. I would recommend them to anyone. I had so many bids, I didn’t know which one to choose. Thank you so much for making our sale such a wonderful experience. If you are looking for an agent to get the job done for you, these are the folks to contact.

- Steve

Stephen’s office was a great support through the whole process of selling my home. Stephen is an absolute professional and well prepared with knowledge of the Portland home market. His team provided me with prompt communication and put me in contact with home professionals as I needed them to prepare my home for a speedy sale. The process of selling my home has been a positive experience. I’m happy I found Stephen. I would work with Stephen again, and certainly recommend his services to any individual looking for a sharp and honest seller’s agent. Go Stephen!

- Adela

I found Steven when googling Portland housing market. His articles demonstrated current knowledge of the market and flexible thinking. The Realtor I used when I last sold in 2007 didn’t realize the market was changing, and gave me poor advice.

A Realtor who sells an average of 2 houses a week is in great touch with the market.

Steven’s photographer took great photos for the listing. The interior photos looked better than real life. The attractive photos and directness of the text made for a great RMLS listing, which generates the interest to view the house.

I saved almost $5K on commissions, and don’t think a full fee Realtor would have sold it any quicker or for a higher price. I will use Steven again.

- Michael

Stephen and Jennifer were awesome to work with – they truly exceeded my expectations.

My house went on the market on a Wednesday and by Thursday morning, I had two offers. Their communication style and marketing talent really helped with this quick sale… I appreciate them very much and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting the best agent around!

- Sandi

We would highly recommend Stephen, and would use him if we ever need to buy or sell another house.

- Geneva & Loyed

This agent helped me locate and purchase a new townhouse while I was living in another state. I purchased the home solely on the information he provided such as his own videos of the property. I was a little nervous about doing this, but was quite happy with the results when I finally arrived in Portland to move into my newly purchased home. Additionally, this agent helped me find the best area and price for the size of home I needed and the type of area I prefer to live in. Naturally, compromises had to be made, but I believe the best options were found after exploring what was available. I heartily recommend this agent to anyone who knows what they want or need and wants an agent who will find the best options to meet their needs.

- Kevin F.

Never wrote reviews before but felt the need to say something about how awesome this guy is! First encounter with Stephen was when we called him to ask about a place we were interested in. We were first time buyers and quite new in Portland so basically we were clueless. We knew he was the agent for us. Though it took us 4 months and toured about 30+ houses to finally find our dream home, it was indeed a pleasant experience. He was so easy to work with and he’ll answer your every question even the silliest ones for that matter. It made us feel comfortable and less scared about the whole buying process. Amazingly, we were able to close in just 3 weeks. Together with his recommended lender, everything just went smoothly. We couldn’t be happier and we couldn’t have chosen a better agent than Stephen. He is simply the best!

- Karen Ortiz

Stephen FitzMaurice did a great job in the sale of my home which took months to accomplish, having to deal with a Mortgage Company that was near impossible to deal with. He persevered and got the job done in the form of a short sale. I would highly recommend him for anyone’s real estate needs!

- Richard Barker

We were out of state buyers, and emailed 3 top rated Realtors, including Stephen. He responded within 2 hours, the others took days or weeks. This signified the level of service he gave us. He answered every question, every concern, every problem we had quickly and completely. He was patient, calm, honest and respectful. He went out of his way to accommodate us. Even though we were hundreds of miles away, he made it easy to buy our house. Stephen is that rare person who is ethical, professional, and a great all around guy! Thanks again for everything – come by for a visit!

- Ken & Janet Brown

Stephen helped us sell and buy a new home and the process could not have gone any better. He was super responsive to any questions we had and was very easy to work with.

Stephen helped us price our house in the sweet spot and we got the offer within days of listing it. A few days after that we made an offer on our new house and Stephen was able to work the price down way lower than the appraised value of the house.

I would heartily recommend Stephen to anybody that is trying to sell, buy, or do both at the same time!

- John Silvia

It was a great experience working with Stephen on the short sale of my condo. He guided me through the entire process and was always responsive when I had questions. Stephen is very pleasant person to work with and was always considerate of my schedule. I highly recommend Stephen as an Agent.

- Noelle B.

When I decided to sell my home, my brother recommended Stephen as a good choice for a Realtor. Stephen met with me prepared with comps, marketing ideas and good instincts about pricing and the temperature of the market. We listed my house and I got an offer the next day. I’m happy to say with that offer my house sold with no issues in about a month. Stephen was always available for questions via e-mail or phone and was really clear when explaining all the steps along the way. I highly recommend him if you are looking to sell your house!

- Kristen

As buyers who were new to the area, my wife and I took an abnormally long amount of time (over a year) looking at different houses in different neighborhoods and trying to get a feel for which school district we wanted to be in and what kind of houses were available in those areas. Stephen was immensely patient with us; he must’ve showed us 30 houses in a variety of price ranges and neighborhoods during that year. He was always available via email and telephone, and we found him to be highly knowledgeable at every stop in the home-buying process. We would recommend his services to anyone looking for a new home.

- Ben and Lori

Stephen led the sale of my home with efficiency, good advice, deep knowledge of the Portland housing market, and just enough hand-holding to make a first-time seller such as myself comfortable every step along the way. The whole process was smooth, and I am very satisfied with the result. All of this, by the way, was accomplished with me living overseas, 8 time zones away. I’ve never actually met Stephen in person, but I’m looking forward to doing so when I get back to Portland, and I highly recommend him as a realtor.

- Kevin

Our experience with Mr. Fitzmaurice has been nothing short of flawless. Stephen has his art down to a science, and is one of the most efficient realtors I’ve had the privilege to have worked with. He is incredibly patient, thoughtful, kind, and accommodating, and knows how to get the job done.

After reviewing and discussing options for our property sale in N. Portland, we agreed upon a very fair listing price. Due to Stephen’s suite of online marketing and paid-for feature listings, we had over a dozen interested parties nearly immediately, and received a full price offer within 24 hours of listing. I was ready to gladly accept the offer, but Stephen advised to wait over the weekend to see if multiple bidders could be pitted against each other. This turned out to be great advice! By the end of the weekend, we had another offer at $6K over our asking price, which yielded a quick closing, no repairs, no concessions. The whole experience was smooth, easy, and very fruitful, and I would gladly refer and use Stephen again for all our Portland area real estate needs!

In addition to being a great real estate agent, he’s also an all around ‘good guy’, and a pleasure to work with. He has a very focused yet laid back attitude, and has the people skills to address all of the situations and stresses that pop up over the course of a property transaction.

Stephen’s team (Jennifer) was also incredibly responsive, professional, and patient. They made a great duo!

Thanks again for a great transaction, and looking forward to working with you again soon!

- Steven & Theresa

We had a home for sale in Portland, OR. As we all know, there are innumerable real estate brokers and agents for prospective buyers and sellers to choose from. I interviewed several including, Stephen FitzMaurice. A couple I interviewed, even offered a lower commission than Stephen.

But from lessons’ learned, paying less too often means getting less in return. But with Stephen FitzMaurice and his uber-capable executive assistant, Jennifer, I really lucked out.

As it sometimes just happens, the process of selling our house was not as direct as we would have hoped. But through the steady guidance of Stephen and Jennifer, based upon their years of experience, and their unwavering patience with an impatient home-owner (moi), as well as, their sage advice, we sold the house for $50,000 more than our original asking price! I am not making this up.

Obviously, that alone makes me very happy. But if I can impress upon anyone who is contemplating hiring Stephen and his team it is this: Throughout the process, Stephen and Jennifer gave me a sense of security that I was in the hands of two highly capable, caring individuals who were going to do whatever was necessary to take the burden off me, and get the house sold. I thank them for that.

I could not be more pleased and give them my highest recommendation.

- Steve

I loved the team approach. I worked with one team who focused on finding me a condo and another team who focused on selling my house. It was very effective. Everyone was always available to me with my numerous questions and kept me well informed. I would definitely use Stephen and his team again.

- Jenny

Stephen got competing offers for our house in just 1 week, the entire process went as stress free as I could imagine. I couldn’t make a stronger recommendation than to go with Stephen and his team.

- Andrew & Jamilyn

We had a wonderful experience working with Stephen. We followed his recommendations and sold within 4 days of listing at above listing price! We never believed it would happen so quickly or that we would attract so many great offers. We could not be happier with the outcome.

We initially weren’t certain of our selling timeline but Stephen listened and was respectful of our needs. He provided advice in the meantime. That was really helpful. We knew we were going to sell, just not when, so we followed his advice in clearing out the house and getting it into open house condition. When we were ready to sell, he provided updated market specs and recommendations. Again, we think the house sold so quickly at a great price because of Stephen’s recommendations. Thanks again Stephen!

- Duane

The best thing about Stephen is that he has used his experience to fine-tune a process that is efficient and lucrative for selling houses. He invests in the advertising/marketing aspects of the sale (e.g. visibility on all websites, professional photos, etc) which translates into a quick sale for possibly more than another realtor. I was extremely satisfied with this. We sold our house within 2 days for more that I would have expected. He also gave good advice on what we should focus on in home improvements before it went on the market. The only word of caution that I have is that he doesn’t ‘hold your hand’ as much as another dealer. He’s very responsive to any requests, but the personal touch is lighter than other realtors. For me, this was a perfect match (I didn’t want much of that) but if your personality type wants to be close to your realtor you may want to go with someone else.

- Richard

My wife & I were looking for an honest realtor that would offer us (the seller) a fair price and at the same time implement outstanding service in the selling our home. We found Stephen FitzMaurice. We knew that in our neighbor there was lots of competition with 10 homes for sale. Stephen told us that with the home priced fairly and proper promotion the home could sale within a month or two. I thought that might be a tall order. Knowing that Stephen was one of the preeminent agents in the area we decided to trust him.

Within 3 weeks we had a cash offer for the full asking price. The house was sold 11 days later.

We have a rental that we will be selling in the future and Stephen FitzMaurice will be our agent.

I can’t recommend Stephen highly enough.

- Lloyd

We hired Stephen to list our house and had a great experience working with him and his assistant Jennifer. We listed in a very hot market, the house was only active for three days before we received multiple offers and accepted one above asking. We really needed a 60 day rent back to give us enough time to find a new house. Jennifer was awesome and went back and forth between the two best offers to get us the highest price and the rent back period that we needed.

The only thing that was somewhat surprising for us was that once we received offers on our house we didn’t work with Stephen, we worked exclusively with Jennifer to get the deal closed. That turned out to be fine because Jennifer was awesome to work with; she is extremely good at her job and is very responsive and easy to work with. Although our interaction with Stephen was somewhat limited, he was always available for questions and was good about getting back to us quickly. I would definitely recommend using Stephen and Jennifer to list your home.

- Maureen

My husband and I highly recommend Stephen FitzMaurice for your real estate needs. His response to phone calls and emails was immediate. Jennifer was a pleasure to work with and did an outstanding job keeping us updated on what was happening at all times. Extremely professional, courteous, and efficient!

Thank you, Jennifer and Stephen! We are so happy to have our home sold.

- Fran

Stephen and Jennifer make an excellent team! Based on their expertise, we were able to price our home right and the offers streamed in, from day one. We will not hesitate to use their services in the future! Keep up the great service!

- Robert & Cindy
