Stella handled both the sale of our old house, as well as the purchase of our new house. In both transactions, we could not have asked for a better agent. Stella quickly responded to all questions, on any day or at any time. She had specific and knowledgeable advice in preparing and staging our house for sale. Similarly, she offered detailed and expert guidance (both positive and negative) in visiting potential new homes. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Stella's representation. She was kind and knowledgeable, but never pushy. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in this area. Less ... More

Stella was there for us during this process every step of the way. My husband and I were buying our first home. Stella was able to get us into every house that we wanted to see as soon as possible. She called/texted/emailed us back right away any time that we had a question or wanted to set up an appointment. Stella pointed out different quirks or positives about houses that we would not have noticed. When we thought we had found "the one" she was able to get us an appointment to see the house before any other appointment that the seller had booked. She wrote up our offer that night. I can simply say that Stella is the right choice. You work with Stella and only Stella. She listens to your needs and respects your timeline. She is not pushy and tells it like it is. I cannot recommend her more highly! Less ... More

Stella was fantastic to work with. This was our first home purchase; as such, we were totally unfamiliar with the process. Stella was always there to guide us through this new terrain. We had previously worked with another agent, and left because we felt we weren't getting the service we needed. Stella exceeded our expectations - I couldn't recommend her more highly!

Stella is an excellent resource and will be our go-to agent as long as we are in the area. It was obvious working with her that Stella knows the business inside and out and was irreplaceably helpful in the process of looking for and buying a home. What was even more impressive, and ultimately important to us, was Stella's charisma and affability. Contacting Stella with questions or concerns very easy whenever we needed; and her response time was fantastic, answering emails or texts within the hour, no matter the time of day or evening, weekends included. She was more than happy to cater to our schedules and meet us where and when worked best for us, every time. We couldn't be happier with the service we received and will absolutely be recommending Stella to friends and family in the area. Less ... More

Stella was a recommendation from a co-worker. I was a first time home buyer and the whole process seemed intimidating. She was able to walk me through the entire process and answer any questions I had. Any emails I sent were responded to in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend Stella if you are looking for an agent.

I wouldn't have wanted to go through this experience with anyone other than Stella. This is my first home, I'm 23 and female and considered myself behind the curve in terms of mortgages, negotiations, and homes in general. Stella was very knowledgeable, very understanding, and always available. She walked me through each step of the process before it happened so I knew what to expect and what to prepare for. I fell in love with an older home that came with its share of snags, both in the house itself and the process of buying it. Stella worked very hard to get everything figured out, and kept the stress of everything at a minimum for me. I think deciding on a house to buy is an emotional process. Stella is very approachable, easy to talk to, and knows her stuff! I would recommend her to any of my friends. Less ... More

My husband and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Stella! We just bought a house at the end of March in Okemos (though it's not listed in her recent sales). We got connected with Stella through my husband's co-worker who also recently bought a house and had Stella as his real-estate agent. She responded to our email within hours and was willing and able to meet with us on Weekends for showings since we were living in the Bloomfield area and couldn't make the drive during the week . She worked diligently since my husband and I were on a tight deadline to find a house because we needed to be out of our apartment by March 31 and we didn't decide to look into buying a house until the very end of January/Early February. She was honest and thorough and made sure my husband and I understood the paperwork before it was signed and also made sure that the bank/credit union fulfilled their end of the deal in a timely manner. Because of Stella we were able to close and move into our house before March 31st and not have to find somewhere temporary to live! We will definitely use Stella when selling or buying a house in the future. Less ... More

Stella was very friendly and fun to work with. She is also incredibly patient with me as I was looking for my first home. What I also like about her is her honesty as she would tell me if she did not think a property was a good deal instead of pressuring me into buying it. I have recommended her to several friends, and I think they have had positive experience with her as well.

I was living in Washington while trying to sell my house in Michigan, and many times Stella would go by my house to make sure everything was okay. She'd make sure everything was clean and up to par before every showing. It was so unexpected and so very much appreciated. I never had to worry about anything. She's responds to every e-mail, she will always keep you up-to-date on whatever is happening, and she'll let you know every time what any prospective buyers thought after a showing. I have and will again highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. Less ... More

I would recommend having Stella Boak as your real estate agent. Stella met promptly with me and responded quickly with the listing posted on the internet. It was detailed oriented along with pictures and comparisons with other property in the area. Stella continued to keep me informed of progress and each steps that I needed to take even though during this time , I had moved out of state. This service, care, and expertise continued throughout the entire process of selling the home.

Stella was the listing agent of the house I purchased. When I first contacted her to get details on the house she was prompt and very willing to work around my schedule to do a walkthrough. Throughout the entire process of purchasing the house she was right there to assist and kept me up to date on every detail. When the house needed to have repairs to a damaged sump pump pipe or radon gas had to be remitted Stella was right there to assist and provide support. As a home buyer I felt very comfortable and knew I had someone on my team to help me and that meant a lot to me. No sale or purchase ever goes perfect so it is great to know that you have an agent that has your back and will help you go thru each detail as it come up. I would recommend Stella to my friends or family when they are in the need to purchase or sell their house Less ... More

She worked hard to list and sell the house for in a market that was not a sellers market. Stella was not a pushy when it came to setting the price of the listing. She did recommendations and comparisons of other homes that had sold and were listed. We both very satisfied with our experience with Stella.

My experience with Stella was absolutely perfect! I was relocating out of the state. Since I would be in another state during the entire selling process, my top priority was someone who is reliable and responsive. I met with two agents before Stella, but was not impressed with their attitudes. I contacted Stella about a week before my move, and she was on vacation! However she replied to me within 24 hours. We met on a Saturday for a walk-through, and she completed a market analysis on Sunday. We signed the listing agreement the following Monday - the day of my move. I had no idea what will happen after and I was certainly preparing for the worse... Right after I was on my way, Stella put herself to work. My house received showing requests literally on the same day while she was still completing the listing infor into the system, and my house was not even ready yet! I hired couple contractors to work on the house a bit during the first week, and I relied on her for updates and checking the quality of the work. She even sent me pictures on the finished work! Things could not go better after that. My house received the first offer 10 days after signing the listing agreement. It's a solid offer however with a contingent which was not common. Stella made sure I had all the necessary infor to decide and also offered her opinion. I decided to go with it and we also made back-up plan. Make long story short, things went very smoothly as we planed, and my house was closed even a few days earlier than contracted! During the process, Stella kept me updated at each step, and all the infor /documents she sent to me were all well-prepared and ready to go. The whole process was absolutely perfect! However, please do not think Stella has magic power. The most important thing in selling a house is the "product" itself. I had a very good product and I also put into a lot of work to make sure it is in excellent shape to be appealing. But through Stella, you will get THE BEST PROFESSIONAL SERVICE in town!!! Less ...

When we started our search for a house in the Lansing area we were still living in Chicago, IL. We needed to close on a property in a short two month timeframe. To say we were stressed about the process doesn't even start to describe our mental state. So finding Stella was a pure miracle! She responded to our initial inquiry immediately, helped us set up 20+ showings, walked us through the Michigan real estate market and procedures, and ultimately helped us find the perfect home for us. She even walked our dog around if we had to bring him to a showing so we could concentrate on the property. If you are from out of state moving to mid-Michigan we highly recommend Stella. She'll be professional, responsive, friendly and fun to work with. Less ... More

We started off looking for an existing home, but we ended up finding a great builder and we did new construction. Stella showed us some existing homes, and she also walked us through the new construction process. She was valuable ! From beginning to end. She helped us negotiate some things with the builder. She did our walk through with us and held the builder to his word when we had a paint fiasco ( they accidentally painted the entire house turquoise !) I never doubted she was there looking out for US and no one else . She gave her honest opinion and expertise. We saved a lot of time by signing things electronically. She's simply amazing at what she does. Period. I would recommend her to anyone, buying, or selling ! Less ... More

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Helped me buy and sell homes
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

We recently listed our home with Stella. She was very helpful throughout the entire process and worked hard to sell our home quickly. We really appreciated that she was always available by phone or email to answer any questions that we had. She is very friendly, personable, and knowledgable. We highly recommend Stella to those looking to buy or sell a home.

I have sold two houses and bought two houses in the past three years. We used Stella for all the sales. She is very professional and would recommend her to anyone. Stella always kept us informed with everything going on. We will for sure use Stella as our realtor when we sell our house.

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 worked diligently throughout the entire process of my sale. She is consistently hardworking and detail oriented. 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.
