Stephanie Souza-BreaultREALTOR® & Broker/Owner (Lic #01980090)
"Stephanie is absolutely amazing. Her knowledge of real estate in our area is beyond what I could have hoped for. She was always quick to respond to any question we had during the sell. Her dedication to getting our home sold was like no other. After we listed we had multiple offers within two days above asking. I highly recommend Stephanie Breault."

"Working with Stephanie was a wonderful experience! She is a Realtor that cares about her clients! Stephanie gave us a timeline and was on point beginning to end! A real pleasure to work with. We cannot wait to recommend Modern Nest Realty to all of our family and friends."
Frank and Patty Maldonado, Santa Maria, CA (Buyer) Fri, 17 Sep 2021 06:49:13 +1000
"I cannot praise Stephanie Souza-Breault enough. Less than twenty-four hours after reaching out to her, she came to our home, shared her historic perspective of the property, presented a marketing plan supported by recent comps, and summarized her sales history with us. After selected to represent us, she provided small recommendations to best show case the home and was prepared to put the property on the market in less than two weeks. The initial showing began on a week-end that we were out of town. We received four offers, all over asking price by Sunday evening when we returned. One showing was performed the next day by a potential buyer who had placed an offer remotely over the weekend. Monday evening (day four) we reviewed seven offers over asking price, made one counter offer to all and accepted the successful offer the following day. Stephanie's strongest attributes include knowledge of community, a strong marketing team, caring for her clients and most importantly an ability to navigate this crazy real estate market through close of escrow so the sellers can relax and concentrate on the next phase of their lives."
Wayne Mills, Santa Maria (Orcutt) California (Seller) Fri, 03 Sep 2021 07:27:56 +1000
"Being a first time buyer the process was intimidating. Working with Stephanie was enjoyable, painless, and easy! The attention and organization she provides to clients is what makes her so trustworthy. Anyone in search of real estate services, NEEDS Stephanie!"
Ale Ponce, Santa Maria (Buyer) Fri, 23 Jul 2021 00:23:16 +1000
"Stephanie is a wealth of knowledge and I felt that she listened to what I had wanted when looking for my home. It also helped that she came in highly recommended by a friend who got his own place with Stephanie’s help. Home buying was a journey and Stephanie helped explain on what to expect on each process.
If something needs to be turned in she lets me know. If I had a question, she answers it within reasonable time. One time I asked her a question at 10pm and long and behold, I got a response! Just amazing!
Stephanie knows the Santa Maria Valley and vicinity well. I love hearing her advice in regards to the home buying process. I love that she’s a realist and helps me prepare for the inevitable. I highly respect that.
This is my first time and if I have to go to a different realtor, for a different area, I’d have to look for someone with similar qualities. She’s simply excellent!"
Gener B., Santa Maria, CA (Buyer) Sat, 13 Mar 2021 17:12:47 +1000
"We really enjoyed working with Stephanie; she was very professional and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend Stephanie to our family and friends.
Thank you Stephanie for understanding us and helping us through this process. We wish you the very best."
Bill & Alicia - Santa Maria (Seller) Mon, 08 Mar 2021 11:27:34 +1000
"Stephanie was there every step of the process. We received timely updates via text, email and even personalized videos explaining what to expect next. Since we live hours away from the property we were selling we especially appreciated the DocuSign feature which allowed us to sign all the various documents remotely by email quickly and conveniently. We love Stephanie ❤️"
Michael and Virginia Bauer, La Quinta, Ca (Seller) Fri, 17 Jul 2020 10:13:50 +1000
"Stephanie did an outstanding job especially with a pandemic going on"
Lynda McIntyre Nipomo (Buyer) Thu, 28 May 2020 06:47:07 +1000
"Stephanie is professional and hardworking. She made the home buying experience really easy and a lot of fun! Stephanie always made sure we were comfortable with and understood every step of the home buying process and always made decisions that had our best interest at heart. We loved working with Stephanie and highly recommended her to anyone looking for a realtor!!!"
Josh and Hannah Morse - Orcutt (Buyer) Thu, 14 May 2020 09:11:50 +1000
"Stephanie is as good as it gets! Not only did she help us find our dream home, she sold ours in 4 days ... during the “shelter in place” order no less. Not one single open house!
Stephanie really takes the time to get to know you and your family and understand what your needs are. She takes the time to explain every part of the home buying/selling process and as your agent makes sure your being taken care of and protected in all senerios.
We really enjoyed working with Stephanie Souza-Breault and would highly recommended her to anyone in need of a realtor!"
Josh and Hannah Morse - Orcutt (Seller) Thu, 14 May 2020 08:38:33 +1000
"Stephanie represented us in the sale of our past home; then went above and beyond when it came to finding the right home to meet our changing needs. Stephanie is a true people person. She is very attentive and truly listens to her clients. This became obvious as she paid close attention to our comments while viewing homes. Her helpful practice of highlighting positive features and noting possible drawbacks further inspires confidence and trust.
There were very few listings available at our price point, and Stephanie made sure that we were aware of each new potential listing when any became available. Stephanie didn’t miss a beat when we asked to see some “fixer uppers.” The original intent was to find a turnkey property, but the inventory was lacking. We ultimately found a property in need of some updates in a fantastic neighborhood! Stephanie negotiated a very fair price, which left room in the budget for needed repairs and improvements.
Stephanie is adept at pivoting when things become difficult. We purchased this property right in the middle of the COVID19 crisis. Immediately our safety and wellbeing became her primary focus. She took maximum precautions to protect our health such as virtual meetings, digital document signing and providing protective equipment when in person contact was necessary. Stephanie’s professionalism and adaptability gave us the confidence to purchase a home in a hyper-stressful environment.
We’re all moved in and are feeling grateful to have found such a beautiful home (currently—a bit of a diamond in the rough) that perfectly suits our needs❤️
If you need a representative for any property transactions on the central coast —I highly recommend calling Stephanie Souza-Breault."
Chadley Landreth (Buyer) Mon, 04 May 2020 07:30:56 +1000
"Stephanie Souza-Breault is basically a ROCKSTAR when it comes to making real estate transactions happen! She really knows her stuff , knowledgeable and eagerly seeks any opportunities to learn new things. Stephanie is definitely the person to go to if you are looking to sell a property on the central coast. Not only is she very knowledgeable, personable, authentic and incredibly transparent— Stephanie was able to keep us calm and reassured while navigating two real estate transactions in the middle of pandemic for us.
Stephanie takes the time to really get to know her clients lifestyles and goals. We had many many hiccups along the way due to the COVID-19 crisis,
each causing a roller coaster of emotion and concern that we would not be able to sell our home after all.
We were very happy to be working with Stephanie prior to the national disaster. However Had we chosen any other agent, we may have backed out and waited. We have never had anyone work that hard on our behalf to make some thing that we had only dreamed about become a reality!!!
I cannot say enough about how much I would recommend working with Stephanie again in the future."
Chadley Landreth (Seller) Mon, 04 May 2020 06:02:38 +1000
"Stephanie was a pleasure to work with. She kept us informed every step of the way. This is the second house she has sold for us. As always she was right on top of all the details"
Cathy Ramey Santa Maria, ca (Seller) Tue, 07 Apr 2020 09:50:58 +1000
"Stephanie was very helpful in determining pricing, and strategies. Stephanie was also very helpful with issues such as needing to check and later get proper smoke/CO2 detectors installed, since I am out of town. It was a stressful time for us both, but we came through it just fine."
Ginny, Santa Maria, CA (Seller) Sat, 28 Mar 2020 03:03:40 +1000
"Stephanie made it easy to sell our home. We're picky and she was patient with us when we bought our last home. Buying and selling are much different, but Stephanie proved she was even better at helping us sell our home, than helping us find one! i highly recommend Stephanie if you're looking for a realtor you can trust. She makes you feel like she is fully invested in your transaction and your experience!"
Dan Mulvany, Paso Robles (Seller) Fri, 20 Dec 2019 12:11:33 +1000
"Stephanie was exceptional this was a difficult deal as we dealt with my mother in her advancing years. Stephanie handled the whole process extraordinarily well she communicated very well she market at the property very well she gave great advice I could not be happier with her as our agent."
Charles Hanson, Santa Maria ca (Seller) Thu, 28 Nov 2019 11:46:05 +1000
"Stephanie came highly recommended from our lender when we were first starting our home search. As a first time homebuyer, it was important to me to work with an agent I felt comfortable with while also educating me on the process of finding and buying a home. I couldn't have done it without Stephanie. From the moment we first met, Stephanie far exceeded my expectations. She was prepared and provided print outs and notes for every property we visited. She provided helpful insight and things to think about as a first time homebuyer. Though I know I wasn't, she made me feel like her only customer with how easily she made time for me. Every step of the process was made easy with her anticipating everything we needed to do. She is easy to work with, made a stressful life event fun and exciting, and held my hand every step of the way so I felt informed and engaged. We are extremely happy with the home we chose, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat."
Mendi Short, Orcutt (Buyer) Sat, 05 Oct 2019 05:00:17 +1000
"The best word to describe Stephanie is “competent.” I have had complete faith in her through my home selling and buying process because it’s evident she knows what she’s doing. She is responsive, organized, knowledgeable and communicates effectively. Every piece of the puzzle in this overwhelmingly stressful process has been expertly managed by Stephanie. I would never buy or sell a property without her... but more importantly I don’t think I could do it without her. I’d be lost without her scheduling, explanations, directions, reminders, feedback, tips, advice, referrals, and everything else she does.
Stephanie was great with giving me directions on what I need to do to sell my house fast. She brought staging items that photographed nicely and made the home appear more welcome to buyers. She goes the extra step with great photos and cute marketing materials
She is one of the most responsive people I’ve ever dealt with!!"

"Buying and selling a home is often a stress-filled time full of change. Not knowing what I should even look for in a real-estate agent, it was my greatest fortune to be steered toward Stephanie Souza-Breault by recommendation, and I would like to do the same for others. This is what I found her to be:
A warm and clear communicator
Always organized, punctual, and patient
An accomplished professional who exudes confidence
An outstanding listener who REALLY listens to what you are saying
Stephanie knew the property that was a perfect match for me before I even recognized it myself. She then worked with me to create the best offer out there so I could obtain it. She took the time to answer any questions I had and ensured that I understood each document that I had to sign. With Stephanie, you are working with someone who is also exceedingly compassionate, caring, and positive. I absolutely love my new home. If you are reading this, then I hope my greatest fortune will become yours as well through Stephanie."
Carole Nishimori, Santa Maria (Buyer) Fri, 19 Jul 2019 09:49:37 +1000
"Stephenie Souza-Breault was great! Very professional & quick to respond to any questions we had. She had a very well thought out plan & marketing materials. Her staging was impressive and it all came together so quickly; which we appreciate. Our house sold over ask & in 1 day. We could not be happier, she is the best!!"
Erica Fryburger, Atascadero (Seller) Wed, 10 Jul 2019 23:52:31 +1000
"Stephanie is an incredible agent! She went above and beyond any of our expectations.
She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, housing business, and general economics. She went out of her way to make sure that we found the perfect home. We are first time home-buyers, but felt like veterans with her help. She walked us through every step of the process and didn't hesitate to explain things to us multiple times if we didn't quite understand. She brought up a lot of topics about houses that I would have never thought of. I couldn't imagine having any realtor other than Stephanie (especially for our first home)!"
Aaron and Jen Gettemy 912 Queens Ct Santa Maria CA (Buyer) Tue, 04 Jun 2019 12:47:02 +1000
"Working with Stephanie was an incredible experience. Her knowledge of the Northern part of San Luis Obispo County and commitment to accommodating our coming into town to view properties was outstanding. Add her incredible communication skills and her ability to bring my husband, Son, daughter-in-law and me all together on the same page was an accomplishment in itself! We appreciated Stephanie’s direct and kind approach and would recommend her again and again!"
Kristen McKalson, Salinas,CA (Buyer) Mon, 03 Jun 2019 13:48:33 +1000
"Stephanie was wonderful to work with! She had a good plan and kept us on course when we wavered. She anticipated many of our questions and continually communicated with us. Her knowledge of the area was detailed and helpful. Both buying and selling homes can be very stressful, and her calm professionalism has been reassuring. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone."
Brad, Santa Maria (Seller) Tue, 12 Mar 2019 07:28:15 +1000
"Stephanie was just golden throughout my entire home search and purchase!
I would heartily recommend her to any of my friends entering the hunt for a home, and I will DEFINITELY seek her out for my own next purchase in the future!
BRAVO to Berkshire Hathaway for having such a knowledgeable and all around great agent on your team!"
Joe D, Santa Maria Ca (Buyer) Wed, 21 Nov 2018 18:40:54 +1000
"Stephanie was very knowledgeable and easy to work with, never adding any pressure.
Being from out of town sometimes the logistics of getting things accomplished appeared as if it would be difficult to complete but Stephanie would just take care of everything for me and make the buying process a breeze.
I have dealt with several real estate agents in the past and the Berkshire Hathaway agents have been the best. I never had to worry about following up on any matters. Everything was taken care of in a timely manner.
My home purchase has been completed and she is still helping me with my move. She doesn't just forget about you once the house has been purchased and closed.I would definitely recommend Stephanie for anyone looking to sell or buy a house"
Cheryl Frederiksen, Orcutt (Buyer) Wed, 21 Nov 2018 18:03:03 +1000
"Stephanie knows the real estate market and knows how to market your property in a very professional and effective way. It was a pleasant and worry free experience"

Jerry and Mary Souza (Seller) Wed, 01 Aug 2018 09:26:03 +1000
"We do not have the words to express how incredibly grateful we are to have worked with Stephanie as our realtor. From the moment we met, she went above and beyond to ensure that we would find our first home. She answered every text, phone call, email and silly question. We looked at A LOT of homes at all hours of the day, but Stephanie always showed up with a smile on her face! She was always honest about the good and the bad and was very good at helping us imagine ourselves in every home we saw. When the market slowed down, Stephanie encouraged us to look in a different area of town that we would never have thought of on our own. Funny enough, that's where we ended up buying our first home! Once escrow began, that's when Stephanie really showed us that we were truly working with the best realtor in town.
Our escrow was not quick or easy to say the least. She ensured that we understood every step of the process and communicated with us every single day so we knew what was going on. Stephanie was very diligent in guiding us from start to finish and fought for us at every roadblock that we hit along the way. She refused to take no for an answer and knew how to get things done. She has built incredible relationships with people in this business and always knew exactly who to reach out to when we needed help. We literally would not have closed escrow on this incredible home without her working hard every minute of every day down the home stretch. We cannot thank her enough for her hard work, dedication, passion and willingness to do whatever it takes. We have even reached out to her after escrow when a situation came up and she helped without hesitation. There is no one better than Stephanie Breault in real estate and we recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home here on the central coast. I know that we will never work with anyone else but her! Thank you Stephanie for helping our little family buy our first home!"

"Stephanie in my opinion went above and beyond! Was extremely please with how she handled the sale. In addition, when ever there was a roadblock to the transaction she was very proactive in resolving the situation."
Rod Davis, Joint Base MDL, New Jersey (Seller) Thu, 08 Feb 2018 09:29:12 +1000
"Stephanie is awesome! She guided us through every step of the home buying process. She was always ahead of the curve, so we rarely had to ask questions because she always had information covered. Stephanie has a great personality. Her attitude was always positive and she delivered the perfect balance of friendliness and business. Our overall experience with Stephanie was great. We had fun (even through some of our stressful moments!). We trusted Stephanie all the way!"

"Stehanie Souza-Breault was an outstanding agent to work with. She was consistent and kept us informed at all times. It was a trying escrow and Stephanie made sure that everything went as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent."
Cletus Ramey, Nipomo (Seller) Fri, 27 Oct 2017 06:48:46 +1000
"Our financing made us jump through hoops that made the closing process very stressful and uncertain, and Stephanie was assured and assuring throughout. She offered great advice and helped us at every twist and turn."
Brad Monsma, Orcutt, CA (Buyer) Thu, 31 Aug 2017 13:54:00 +1000
"Stephanie was so great to work with! She listened and truly understood what we wanted from our new home. We were a bit on the fence about selling, as we were attached to our old house, and she was patient and encouraging throughout the process. She was readily available and met us almost daily looking at new properties until we found the "right" one.
During the escrow process on BOTH homes, she was calming and reassuring. I give her the "PROY" Patient Realtor of the Year award, for dealing with my anxiety along the way.
I still can't believe she was able to help us get through this process during summer, so that we did not have disrupt our family with moving during the school year. She exceeded all of our expectations. I am stunned that we were able to get the house we wanted and obtained full asking price on our old home.
I have to say, I miss our 5:30 visits. We had fun along the way, which made the process so much more tolerable. Stephanie is funny, easy going and an ally to her clients in the stressful process of selling and buying a home."
Diana & Sal Peinado Santa Maria, CA (Buyer) Thu, 31 Aug 2017 02:53:49 +1000
"Stephanie was personal, cared about every detail and allowed us to text her anytime. She didn't wait a couple days to give counteroffers and she knew how to sell the property. She was excellent and sold our house to the first buyer on the first day! Extremely pleased. Also, she sold it for more than asking price without being in a bidding war. Loved her!"
Georgene and Tom Littlefair, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin (Seller) Thu, 24 Aug 2017 13:10:09 +1000
"I heard of Stephanie Souza-Breault through mutual friends about how knowledgeable & friendly she was so I immediately gave her a call. I am so glad I did. Right away I felt at ease & she answered any & all my questions I had. She lead me in the right direction as far as what I was looking for & was very patient with me while I was searching for the perfect home. She was always readily available despite her busy schedule & went out of her way to be there despite my busy schedule. If you're looking for a friendly, experienced, & honest agent, then definitely give Stephanie Souza-Breault a call. She's really one of the best out there."
Cindy Lariba, Orcutt (Buyer) Thu, 24 Aug 2017 11:47:35 +1000
"We were not 100% sure we wanted to sell. When we met with Stephanie. We had a specific location that we really wanted to move to in our town. Stephanie drew up a plan to sell our house and find us a home in the location we wanted. We gave her a chance and she delivered on all aspects. We got full ask price on selling our home. More than what I expected. Plus bought the house of our dreams. We could not have accomplished this with any other agent. Her knowledge of the local market and willingness to show us a house any day anytime was crucial us selling and buying a home. I would highly recommend Stephanie."
Sal - Santa Maria (Seller) Sat, 19 Aug 2017 06:35:48 +1000
"Stephanie is the perfect buyer's agent... she was amazing from start to finish. She communicated quickly and effectively with us from the very first contact. She was extremely organized and prepared, allowing us to view numerous homes in just two days so we could make a purchase during a very tight house hunting visit. She kept us focused on the factors that mattered most to us. Stephanie provided a lot of insight into the local area, helping us pick a home in a location that best meets our needs. Stephanie also possess a great deal of personal experience as a homeowner, property investor, and entrepreneur; she used this breadth and depth of experience to educate and advise us during our home search so we could weigh the pros and cons of each option.
Stephanie was very assertive with the seller's agent in order to close the deal in short order as time was of the essence on this purchase. Stephanie also expedited the home inspection, helping us schedule it while we were still in the local area on our house hunting trip, giving us peace of mind as we left the area that we had purchased a quality home. She was very assertive and engaged with the lender and the escrow company, keeping everyone on track throughout the process and allowing us to close in just 35 days. Stephanie's communication was exceptional at every step in the process. We always had a clear picture of what was happening and why.
We will absolutely work with Stephanie on any future home purchases and are already referring her to others!"
Stephen Schill & Heather Coburn-Schill, Stone Ridge, VA (Buyer) Sun, 06 Aug 2017 07:05:49 +1000
"From the very start of our realtor/client relationship, Stephanie Souza-Breault gave us her full commitment. Her knowledge, experience, personality, and willingness to work through the difficult situations, gave us confidence that she was the right choice for us. She was tenacious in getting answers from the right people involved in our sale, which turned out to be more complex than the typical sale. She answered all our texts and emails quickly. She made sure we were comfortable will all showing times and all other decisions regarding the sale. We couldn't have had a better experience with Stephanie Souza-Breault. She definitely went the extra mile for us!"
Kevin Brennan-Santa Maria (Seller) Mon, 10 Jul 2017 08:52:00 +1000
"There is so much Stephanie did for us that it is impossible to include everything in one testimonial. Initially, she spent an entire two days with us showing us around the local area, searching for houses in VIP comfort. She was super efficient in negotiating our offer with just the right terms to get it accepted the first time around and get us the best possible deal. Once the house was in escrow she diligently followed up with my lender when he started to disappear, and if it weren't for her constant following up, doing his job for him at times, we never would have closed on time. She is a consummate professional, incredibly knowledgeable about both the local area and real estate, and is a pleasure to work with! If we EVER need a Realtor again, or if anyone asks, she is the only name that will come to mind. Stephanie rocks!"
Olesya & Anthony in Santa Maria, CA (Buyer) Thu, 15 Jun 2017 01:36:22 +1000
"The integrity of your agent is essential. You need to trust your broker and feel they truly care about you. Stephanie is all of this and more. She ensured she understood our needs as well as kept us informed every step of the way. You can count on her to handle all of your concerns always remaining professional. Her diligence and work ethic are top notch. She worked with all parties involved and left us with a wonderful experience to remember. Whether you're buying or selling, she's the one for you. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Stephanie for all of your time, dedication and support during a very important moment of our lives. We are eternally great full."
Elizabeth Vega, Santa Maria (Buyer) Tue, 02 May 2017 16:55:14 +1000
"Stephanie Souza-Breault was on top of every step in the process of selling this home. She went above and beyond what is required of a Real Estate Agent. We know Stephanie personally so that gave us a comfort zone working with her.
Stephanie had to work with a difficult tenant and she kept her cool at all times and worked around their issues.
We have already recommended Stephanie to another family member and will continue to do that in the future.
Overall the sale of this property was a good experience"
Arlene Peterson (Seller) Tue, 17 Jan 2017 09:28:46 +1000
"From the moment we walked into the agency, we were immediately made to feel as if we were Stephanie's number one clients. We were given the highest standard in realty as demonstrated by her knowledge, incredible communication, and attention. Throughout the entire process we were made to feel safe because she did such a great job developing rapport and creating trust between us. Being first time home buyers, we were probably the people that realtors say, "it's those people" because we had no knowledge of what was actually entailed in buying a house and simply went in there saying, "we want a house." If Stephanie ever thought we were "those people", she did a great job of not leading on to that. Rather, we were instantly met and educated about what the entire home buying experience was going to look like in a very ethical, personable, and business like fashion. This was just day 1! From then on, the entire process seemed to move without hitch and we are sure that it was because of the dedication that Stephanie demonstrated. She answered any and all questions we had with great detail. We never felt as if we were working with a salesperson as we did with other realtors prior and this made the entire stressful process of being a first time home buyer a rather enjoyable one."
Francis and Norma Lagattuta, Santa Maria (Buyer) Fri, 13 Jan 2017 16:35:55 +1000
"The seller on the home was difficult to say the least. We found ourselves in many ridiculous situations with this guy. The sellers agent wasn't much help. It was a roller coaster of daily problems created by a cranky seller.
At times we were prepared to throw in the towel. Stephanie always had wise words of advice and encouragement. You could tell she was invested in us and our situation by the thought she put into her guidance through this process.
A lot of agents are just looking for the close, and you can tell by the amount of commitment they invest into the process.
Stephanie seems to be a person who puts people ahead of the result, worrying more about us achieving our goals ahead of her closing a sale. Genuine is a good word to describe her.
We had an A+ experience.
Thank you for everything Stephanie!"
Michael & Yvon Frazier, Santa Maria, CA (Buyer) Sat, 19 Nov 2016 03:29:29 +1000
"Great job. Negotiated items that we hadn't even thought of, but turned out to be stress relievers. Very dedicated and energetic. I used to think, and most cases I still do think that broker commissions are too high. In her case I felt we got a good value. She goes above and beyond what I have experienced in the past. She's a keeper."
Michael & Yvon Frazier, Santa Maria, CA. (Seller) Sat, 19 Nov 2016 03:16:02 +1000
"Stephanie has great working knowledge of the area, demonstrated immediate enthusiasm, and commitment to helping us achieve our goal!!
Stephanie demonstrated excellence through our process. Her communication skills and most importantly her ability to execute and deliver was most notable.
Competency is value that is hard to find, but anyone who works with Stephanie will discover that she is tremendously competent, " believe me..."
Thank you so much, Stephanie!!!!"
Edward Jellen, Stockton, CA (Seller) Thu, 10 Nov 2016 12:39:43 +1000
"Stephanie was GREAT!!! She was always available thru text, email or phone. She was patient, accommodating and understanding with our estate being handled through Probate Court and an Estate attorney. This being my first experience in selling a home, I cannot imagine any better agent. She was professional, responsive and detail oriented. I would endorse her 100% and consider myself very fortunate to have her close our deal. Please acknowledge her as one of your best and thank you!"

"I am (was) a first time home buyer and knew nothing about the process. I couldn't afford much and so my options were pretty limited. I was working with a previous agent before I was referred to Stephanie who I felt was not nearly as helpful and just kept pushing me to rent rather than work with me. My first conversation with Stephanie was over an hour long where she answered all of my questions plus additional information I would have never even thought to ask. At this point, we weren't even technically working together but she patiently helped me any way she could. Stephanie never rushed me or made me feel ridiculous when she had to tell me what the most basic things about home-buying were. She was so supportive throughout the whole process. Communication was consistent, professional, timely, and friendly. I cannot recommend Stephanie's help more to anyone looking to buy a home... especially if you're a first timer like me.
The process overall was much more complex than I thought it could be. It was difficult dealing with lenders, escrow, etc. However, having Stephanie's support made it so much better. I used the lender Stephanie recommended which was great because anytime I had an issue with them, Stephanie was able to solve it. There was so much communication between Stephanie, the lender, and myself that made it work out so well. The process (thankfully) was pretty seamless and I am sure it is only because of the work Stephanie put in to make it happen. Stephanie doesn't let anything slip through the cracks. She has great attention to detail and is thorough in her knowledge. But, more importantly, she is thorough in explaining everything to me. She was there anytime I had a question... I am almost certain the woman doesn't sleep!
If you are looking for a Realtor who is kind, courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, hard-working, efficient, and who will go the extra 10 miles for you then Stephanie is your gal! If I ever am looking to sell or buy in the future she is definitely going to be my first call!"

"I had worked with Stephanie Souza-Breault numerous years prior. Stephanie Souza-Breault has and still is a very highly reputable individual. We knew she had left the other profession and went into real estate but at time didn't have a need, but when we did she was the 1st and only one we would use...We did pull our home off mkt because we decided to keep and rent out, but we didn't stop there, a friend called me and asked for help and I knew exactly who to
send them to. So after speaking with this person I called Stephanie Souza-Breault gave her all information for her to contact person and they are ready to purchase a home.....and yes when we get ready to sell Stephanie will be and still is our real estate agent......................
Stephanie Souza-Breault had performed exceptionally for the task she was given at hand....When we realized that we didn't have to sell our house, she didn't drop us but continued to help guide us for what we possibly had to do next...It feels really great to be put into someone hands that really is out for your needs as the client and NOT the SALE...Even though we didn't sell this time, Stephanie Souza-Breault will remain OUR real estate agent even for those that we know and we have recommended her to several others already..........................She really is a Great Asset to any team she is on."

"When I contacted Stephanie Souza-Breault to assist in the sale of our home. She stepped right up to the plate. She came to our home and gave a list of important things we needed to do to get our home on the market. She kept us motivated, organized and on track. Our house was on the market before we new it. There is no way we could have done this without her. She is an absolute gem and I promise you won't find anyone like her. She has made this exciting and emotional transition in our life very smooth. I would recommend Stephanie to any one who is looking to buy or sale. She is a go getter, very knowledgeable and informative."

"Stephanie was great! She made our home buying experience easy and uncomplicated. I've worked with other brokers who only pretended to care about our well being through the process, but Stephanie is the real deal! i will use her again and i highly recommend her, whether you are a first time buyer or if you're old hat, and simply looking for a trustworthy realtor."
