Stacy StokesEarth Advantage Principal Broker
I love Portland! It’s such a smart and accessible city. After moving here in 1996 to begin law school, I soon decided that there was nowhere else I would rather live. Finding a fit here in all aspects of life has been easy. My number one love is spending time with my two kids, Jake (9 yr. old) and Hanna (12 yr. old), my dog, K2 who is a Havanese, and cat, Tiga. Beyond that, you can find me cycling, rock climbing, running, hiking, skiing, volunteering in the community or exploring new corners of the city and new restaurants with my friends. I am always excited to show visitors the unique and funky neighborhoods Portland has to offer. I am especially drawn to the various architecture and offerings of the close-in east side and west side neighborhoods. After 3 years as an attorney/public defender, I came to the realization that Real Estate was the place for me. It allows me to constantly share the love I have for Portland’s houses and communities as well as to use my talent for helping others.
Although, I’m a seasoned real estate broker, I believe that my background as an attorney has provided an invaluable platform off which to build my career. I have a firm understanding of what it means to put my client’s interests first, the art of negotiation and various contractual issues that arise in real estate transactions. Aside from these strengths, I realize that when buying a house it’s not just about finding the best structural fit but also finding the best lifestyle and neighborhood fit for you. I will listen to and truly understand your needs, find you the right home and close the deal to your satisfaction. Throughout the process, I will educate, advise and steadily guide you through what can often be an emotional and challenging time.
In the end, my goal is that you have many years of happiness and peace knowing you’re in the best home and best community for you.
What my clients have to say:
“Working with Stacy was absolutely the best decision we made when selling our house. She was there for us at the very start, giving us pointers on what small updates would help make our house more appealing, and helping us find the right price to list our very unique cottage that stood out as an anomaly in our neighborhood. She came over when we were cleaning and painting to lend a hand, and made trips to Ikea during a snow storm to grab decorations to spruce things up before we hit the market. But where Stacy’s talents really shined was on the negotiating end. In today’s crazy, complex market, we were faced right away with navigating multiple offers and out-of-town buyers. This being the first time we had sold a house, we would have been at a total loss without her guidance. She was candid and in touch at all times, lending us all her knowledge while still allowing us the room to make the big decisions on our own. We walked away confident that we got the best price possible for our house. Living Room’s B Corp status was icing on the cake. We would absolutely use Stacy again, and recommend her to our friends!” – Deann G.
“My fiancé and I knew getting into the Portland area housing market was going to be challenging given the competitive market and hearing other recent experiences from friends and colleagues. As first time home buyers I can’t (and don’t want to) imagine how different our experience might have been had we not had Stacy Stokes by our side throughout the process. She made us feel like we were her only clients by being unbelievably accessible and accommodating, honest and thoughtful when responding to our questions (there were lots) and links to houses we would send, and going above and beyond in so many ways. We originally connected with Stacy via a recommendation of a colleague and wholeheartedly would also recommend working with Stacy if you have the opportunity.” – James M.
“Stacy Stokes represented us when we bought our home in northeast Portland. We have bought and sold 9 houses, all facilitated by realtors. Stacy is by far an exemplar of real estate agents. She is very knowledgeable of the Portland real estate market and provided us with excellent advice in how to evaluate properties. Beyond her expertise, however, she did many “extras” that we had not encountered with previous realtors. She is well connected to people who can provide services to new homeowners—contractors, electricians, plumbers, landscapers, etc. and was able to facilitate a couple of quick appointments for bids on the costs of work needed for our new house. She even mowed the yard at our new vacant house between purchase and closing to keep the property maintained.
Stacy is patient, fair and honest, and kept our best interests front and center. Stacy is a clear, straightforward communicator who responds to emails and texts promptly and anticipates matters that we had not considered. We enthusiastically recommend Stacy Stokes as an outstanding, meticulous, friendly, easy to work with realtor.”
