“I’ve worked with the self-proclaimed ‘best of the best’ and ‘top-producing’ Los Angeles Realtors in the past. Hilary, by far, surpassed them all. She’s not a poser, she’s the real deal. She doesn’t look for the easy way out, but genuinely looks out for your best interests. She’s not afraid to tell you like it is.”
“Hilary Stevens was thorough when researching information that could be useful to us as first time buyers. She was ’on top of things’ making sure the process was going as smoothly as possible. She was responsive to our requests fulfilling them in a timely manner. We would use Hilary’s professionalism in the future.*”
*And they did use me again to sell their condo.
“Hilary Stevens is my idea of a Realtor who inspires confidence and delivers on the promise. Her accomplishments, which include an MBA from Columbia Business School and an undergraduate degree from Berkeley and awards from various organizations all go into the making of a savvy broker, one who knows the turf from its top layers to its deep economic bottom. What’s more, she is warmly personal in the most genuine way and works tirelessly to bring her clients every advantage.”
“I found Hilary Stevens to be informative, insightful and resourceful. The part I found to be most impressive about her style was that she afforded me an honest opinion on good and bad investments. Hilary puts her clients best interests first!
“Hilary was a joy to work with! Her intimate understanding of the joys and pitfalls of antique homes provided us with an education that wouldn’t have been possible with a ‘typical’ real estate agent, and her ability to really get what we were looking for landed us the prettiest farmhouse in Fairfield…we never would have found it without Hilary!”
“Hilary Stevens was a resourceful, levelheaded guide through the minefields of my recent condominium purchase. Her extensive Real Estate expertise and savvy negotiation skills were instrumental in my purchasing the perfect place despite a hot seller’s market where the name of the game was ‘move fast and bid right.’ She helped me do both so that I could recognize my goal of home ownership on my terms. I would most definitely use Hilary again for my Real Estate needs and I highly recommend her for yours.”
“I have dealt with many brokers over the years but I have not met another broker who is as loyal, dedicated, knowledgeable or savvy as Hilary. She didn’t just find me a house, she found me a home.”
I was very impressed with the work that Hilary Stevens provided for me. Century Hill represents a special demographic of clientele that Ms Stevens was able to work with very well. Ms Stevens’ work ethic is exceptional; her level of focus and dedication is constantly high. I felt very taken care of and looked out for by someone with intelligence and savvy.
“On April 9, 2013 the sale of my condominium in West Hollywood closed, for a price well above the list price, due in no small part to the stellar work of my real estate agent, Hilary Stevens. At the moment Los Angeles and particularly West Hollywood is by many counts a seller’s market and many may think that makes the job of your selling agent easy, or at the very least just a quick buck since buyer’s will be lining up at your door. The truth couldn’t be further from the reality, which is this: a good agent will maximize your returns through a complete process that employs their skills and experience.
In my case, my condo needed some renovations: new paint, cabinet hardware, lights and other details that would make it a truly turn-key property for the new owner. Hilary consulted with me on this and was there for me when it came to time to making decisions on what to do that would appeal to a new owner and maximize my returns.
Hilary also contributed greatly to staging the property with an eye towards both photography and the actual open houses. Hilary’s combination of experience and good taste made it possible for me to have a property listed that typically garnered remarks similar to this: “It’s just perfect.”
Hilary also showed her abilities by scheduling showings so that it appeared as though there was always traffic and interest in the property and kept it a ‘hot buy’ in the minds of prospective buyers and their agents. The result was ten offers within the first week of the listing, four of which were all cash. I was in escrow within just over a week of the listing with an offer well above listing price – and slightly over the top offer’s original generous offer.
Many agents would’ve then stopped and starting counting – not Hilary. She was there for me during inspection, appraisal and some of the usual hiccups that can accompany escrow.
This was a very important sale for me: I’d owned the property for 18 years and selling it was part of a major new chapter in life that finds me headed to Asia to follow my heart and work as an English teacher. Hilary demonstrated to me (sometimes daily) how much she cared about this sale having the best possible result.
Without reservation I recommend Hilary Stevens for any transaction involving your residential property – selling or buying. “
