I can't express enough the amount of professionalism and care that we received from Stella while searching for and purchasing our home. Stella Boak was knowledgeable and helpful from start to finish, making our home buying experience better than we could have ever imagined. If you want someone honest and respectful, Stella is the perfect Realtor.

Working with Stella was amazing! I was a first time home buyer and although I had friends providing me with good advise, Stella provided some good insight. She took the time to listen to me and offered ideas/concepts that I should consider before making any final decisions. I definitely had some things wrong : ) She had a great knowledge of the home buying process! She was very good about keeping me informed about what events would come and in which order.

I was on a very tight schedule to purchase a new home in connection with my relocation from Ohio to Michigan. Stella worked around my busy schedule to show as many homes as there was time to see. This included lunch hours, evenings and weekends. Stella was extremely diligent and timely in tracking down extra information to help evaluate potential purchases. Stella quickly learned what type of home I was looking for, and did not waste precious time showing homes that did not meet my requirements. And when we could not find our ?dream? house in off- season market, per our request Stella recommended us two best in area new homes contractors and helped us to found the perfect lot and home plan for us. She was next to us trough out entire process of negotiation and construction period, communicating our needs and concerns to the builder as well as in all inspections and final Closing. For all that time we work together she was never pushy, always available to contact through email or text message and was quick to respond. Stella is very pleasant person to work with. If you are looking for a knowledgeable REA with a keen understanding of the local market, I would highly recommend Stella. Less ... More

I worked with Stella for a few months to find the right house for me. She was very responsive and willing to be flexible to my schedule. She helped provide important feedback and recommendations about the houses we looked at. Stella was particularly helpful in dealing with the seller and seller's agent. Her work during the home inspection and contract negotiations provided me additional concessions from the seller. I would recommend her to any friend or relative.

Having bought and sold several houses, I've worked with a number of real estate agents and, as one would expect, had better experiences with some than others. My wife and I, new to the area, worked with Stella over an extended period to locate and purchase a home. We found Stella to be a really excellent resource, knowledgeable, patient and professional. The negotiations and the purchase were complex, involving a number of unusual aspects and Stella was.there to pull things together and keep the ball rolling. Very committed, very impressive, Stella will earn your recommendation, too. Less ... More

Bought and sold a house through Stella Boak last year and everything went very smoothly. Stella is very knowledgable about the whole process and keeps things moving along in a timely matter. She was always there and if you had any questions or issues she would work hard to address the issues or answer your questions. Would highly recommend Stella and would definitely have Stella handle any real estate needs I would have in the furture.

My partner and I are first time home buyers. Stella came highly recommended by a friend of ours to search for the perfect home. Stella is FABULOUS!! She is prompt, very sweet and I must say she will do everything in her power to take care of you ! We are still in the searching phases of buying our home, since we have just started, but if anyone is truly looking for an agent Stella is amazing! We are blessed to have her come into our lives.

Stella was awesome! My fiancé and I were first time home buyers so we had no idea how to go about buying a house. We contacted Stella and she got a search started for us. She did not pressure us at all while we were finding houses that we liked. Once we found a few houses, she was quick to get us more information and take us to look at the houses. She was helpful while seeing the houses as well. She pointed out both the positive and negative aspects that we may have overlooked. Once we found the house we liked, she was incredibly helpful telling us what to do next. She had names of multiple lenders for our mortgage. During negotiation, she was 100% on our side and worked hard to make the seller agreeable to our terms. Through this whole process she was never pushy, she was always available to contact through email or text message and was quick to respond. Stella made the entire process so easy and enjoyable. We would recommend Stella for sure! Less ... More

Stella is amazing! She was extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile as my husband and I searched for our first home. As first-time home buyers we had lots of questions and uncertainties. Stella made us feel comfortable in our search and enthusiastically helped us through the process.

My husband and I were new to home buying and didn't even know how to choose an agent. We read about Stella (after many others) and decided on her. Thank goodness we did. She was wonderful. Anytime, anywhere we needed her, she was there with a big smile. That was very important and also made us very relaxed and happy during the entire process. Do give her a chance. You will not be disappointed. :)

Our 22 year old son contacted Stella Boak to look at a house in East Lansing near Michigan State. I asked my son how did you find this realtor? He said, I read the reviews. My husband and I proceeded cautiously hoping the reviews were accurate. I asked my husband and son after they looked at the first house, what did you think of the realtor? They both said, she is a very nice person. With three different work schedules and limited time available to look at houses, Stella was very accommodating. She was knowledgeable of the area and addressed all our questions. Stella is a true professional. We were not as fortunate with our lending agent. We almost lost the house as our lending agent failed to get the job done. Stella's expertise and negotiation skills kept the process moving forward while we acquired another lender. In the meantime, Stella also arranged a one month rental for our son to go to school. Stella goes above and beyond to get the job done. We would strongly recommend Stella Boak to family and friends and would definitely go through Stella again. We were very happy Stella was our realtor! Less ... More

We just purchased our first home, and couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent than Stella. She was able to walk us through the entire process, She made herself available to fit our schedule, whether it was to look at a house or to just talk options or answer questions. Throughout our lengthy search for the right home she never hesitated to show us a listing we inquired about. When we finally found our home, she worked hard to make sure we understood the negotiation process and got the best deal possible. She remained available to us and continued to work hard for us, getting answers to our questions and helping us navigate the closing process. She was always prompt to respond to every email or phone call. I am so glad that we chose to contact Stella when we started looking for a house - she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Less ...

I worked with Stella as a buyer's agent. I found her to be an amazing resource and advocate for us. We had a complicated situation that she handled with ease and professionalism. She truly listened to what we were looking for and was invaluable in helping us sort through the available options and during the buying negotiations. I have already recommended her to 2 friends and will do again to anyone else needing an agent (either buyer or seller) in the greater Lansing area. If I were to ever need another agent locally, she would be the one for sure. Less ... More

I would highly recommend Stella to anyone wishing to sell and/or purchase a home. She is knowledgeable, honest and really fun to work with. I couldn't say a negative word about her. It was a true joy and huge learning experience to find our new home. People should consider themselves lucky to have such a caring agent.

Stella has done great job in helping us buy our house. She was very professional, nice and knowledgeable. She was never pushy, always available via phone or email. Unlike some other agents, she did not try to charge something called "buyer's fee!", which can cost hundreds. I'd recommend her to anyone....

I had a very nice experience with Stella Boak she was referred to me by a friend of mine. I told her what area I wanted to buy a house. She E-Mailed me houses that were For Sale. I found a house on the Second E-Mail that she gave me that was in my price range. She never pushed me go over my price range or out of my area. I would highly recommend her to anyone else to buy or sell their homes. I would come back to her if I needed to sell my home or buy another home.

Stella is very professional. She will get you all the information you need to make a decision and then leave the decision up to you. She does not pressure you at all and is always prompt to find out any information that you ask her for. Even when we decided not to sell or buy a house after going back and forth with the buyers and sellers she stood by our decision and did not make us feel like we had just wasted a lot of her time. I highly recommend her!

Stella is awesome. Hands down. I don't typically do reviews but couldn't resist. She looked out for us and helped our little family find our perfect and affordable first home. We were on our own for months searching and along the way we realized we needed help. So blessed and lucky we found Stella. We ran into issues with our financing and had NO IDEA what we were doing, lol. Can't thank her enough for her patience, guidance, and integrity along the way. She looked out for US! We were always a priority to her. And she was so great with our little baby. Stella truly is the perfect agent! She didn't take crap from the seller's agent and always had our family's best interests at heart. I would and do HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anybody needing help finding a new home. My wife and I plan on being here for only a few years and I know we will also look for her when we go to sell our home. I honeslty think we would still be looking if it wasn't for her (written comfortably from our new cozy living room)! :) Less ... More

In my opinion Stella worked so hard to get us exactly what we wanted I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell a house or buy a house. I took the time to look at many reviews for many agents ... Stella had outstanding reviews and she really lived up to those reviews. She answered every question and responded to every email and phone message we left for her right away. She never made us feel like we were too picky or to demanding even when we were. She gave us sound advice. I hope you choose her. Jerry Jones Less ... More

Stella Boak is a pleasant, considerate, kind, and friendly real estate professional. She helped us find our home in Saint Johns, and when it was time, to sell it so we could relocate for employment. Stella was gracious with her time and shared her knowledge of the area with us. She did everything we needed her to do to negotiate on our behalf during our purchase. Stella also went above and beyond during our short sale as we had already relocated and were not able to make it back for the sale closing. We would highly recommend Stella to anyone we know in purchasing or selling their home. Less ... More

We had worked with two other real estate professionals when we contacted Stella Boak. She made all the difference in the world for us. Her knowledge and experience was extremely helpful but even more important than that was the genuine caring she showed. She knew what was important to both me and my husband and worked hard to find us the perfect home. She followed us all the way through our purchase with excellent recommendations. We have recommended Stella to family and friends and our son's girlfriend just closed on her new home with Stella's help. I highly recommend Stella to anyone that is contemplating a real estate purchase. Less ... More

Stella offered me phenomenal service from before I even put the house on the market until my place sold. She helped me out during the most difficult time of my life. I had to quickly move to California for work (during the 2008 recession), leaving my large house behind. I was able to work with Stella remotely to make the sale happen. She went above and beyond for me. Any questions I had for her I would sometimes call or sometimes email. She would always respond with all of the right information and provide me with excellent choices. She even helped me coordinate inspections and appraisals, utilizing her extensive network of trusted professionals. I can honestly say and believe that if it wasn't for her, I really think I would have not been able to sell my house, but she made it happen for me. I would highly recommend Stella to anyone looking for someone who is professional, committed and extremely knowledgable and friendly! Thank you Stella!!! Less ... More

We moved from Ithaca, NY to Okemos in 2012 and we used Stella to help us find a home. We could not have been happier. She went well above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent. If we had any concerns at all, she researched the issue in detail like it was her own home that she was buying. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the area, her expertise in real estate, and her responsiveness. She was always a quick email or phone call away. We highly recommend her for anyone looking for a home in the East Lansing/Okemos area. Less ... More

Stella also assisted me when I purchased my home 7 years ago and I knew then that I would call her again if I ever needed a realtor. She is very personable, knowledgable in real estate, always taking time to address concerns and questions I had along the way. A true professional, I highly recommend Stella to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

I've had the pleasure of working with Stella Boak while searching for my first home. Not only did she care about what I was looking for, but she made sure everything was in my best interest. Every house we looked at fit the mold of what I was eventually looking for: my budget, area/neighborhood, & style of the house. She gave her honest opinion for the cons of each house and would even take me to similar houses in that same neighborhood just to compare values..which, if she had not done this last part, I most likely would not have found my current residence. She helped put me in touch with important contacts such as my inspector, loan officer, and even my homeowners insurance; all of which were pleasures to have done business with. Her knowledge of real estate is fascinating and she truly can find a residence that best suits you. Stella is a personable real estate agent and she goes out of her way to build a relationship with her client. Although I have never worked with another real estate agent, Stella has now given me good reason not too. She is a true professional and I look forward to doing business with her in the future.

Stella was the most professional and friendly agent we have ever worked with. Her continual loyalty and persistence to sell our home was amazing. She was always willing to go above and beyond her normal duties as our agent to see that all our needs were met during the selling process. We would highly recommend anyone to contract Stella as your selling/buying agent.
