I put a lot of work into choosing an agent. I went to Open Houses with top agents in the area and interacted with them from the perspective of a potential buyer. I then narrowed my list down to 4 and did interviews at my home. I asked all four the same questions, listened to their pitch and proposed approach, and discussed costs related to staging, photography, virtual tours, etc. Stephanie's approach for sale was based on experience, data, gut and most importantly taking our needs into consideration. She doesn't have any ego and she is strongly confident without aggression or bullying. After our interviews with all 4 top agents, Stephanie's follow-up with us was perfect. She walks the line so beautifully with checking in but not being pushy and then also providing a bit more information. The other 3 agents' followup messages varied from "hurry up or you are going to miss out..." to radio silence. Given all of this, we choose Stephanie and we are very happy we did! She almost seemed too good to be true and we worried that she wouldn't live up to our expectations. I am happy to report that she exceeded them. Our elation isn't because we got a great price for our house (although that was also AWESOME), it is because she makes the whole process easy and without stress and we know from previous sales that it is not easy. She is very organized and a task master like no other. She builds relationships with everyone she works with and has a great rapport. Given her many years of experience she also has a very extensive rolodex, so if for example one photographer isn't available she has another awesome photographic to swap in to make a deadline. She is also a multi-tasker. It seemed to me that she became even more effective the busier she gets ;-). She has done her homework as well. She knew our neighbourhood better than us and any information we gave her we would hear her speaking to in future conversations as if she had known it for years. Her memory is amazing and the ability to pick up on a person's hesitations or potential areas of resistance and deal with them head on by providing information was fantastic and a key contributor to our sale. If you are looking for an agent who will maximize your sale potential, minimize the stress involved in selling your home, manage the schedule and tasks, prep for showings with agents, follow-up with agents, negotiate like a boss, keep you informed every step of the way and keep an amazing sense of humour throughout the entire process than Stephanie is the agent for you. Lastly, I should mention that we managed to sell our home during the Covid-19 pandemic. This was a very unique situation and Stephanie worked with us as partners to come up with our best course of action weighing pros and cons together and pivoting when necessary. Her professionalism and actions to ensure safety for us and all potential buyers was off the charts. Thank You Stephanie. We are singing your praises to everyone we know.

Stephanie was referred to me by my doctor, who I trust with my life, so I figured I'd trust her with my house too, and what a great decision! Stephanie inspired complete confidence from the beginning. There can be a lot of details and factors when selling a house (especially during Covid!) and Stephanie handled them all beautifully. She led the way for our house's final pre-listing transformation and knew just how to make it shine better than ever (without us having to spend a lot). Her experience, humour, calm, and decorating sense allowed our home to shine so much I found myself not wanting to leave. At the end, her negotiating skills were superb. Then, she referred me to associates in my new location up north who were also amazing! Very happy - I don't think things could have gone so well without her. She's a pro - trust her!

Stephanie was recommended by our trusted family doctor. She was not the first real estate agent we contacted. She came over, went through our house and gave us her vision of how we should market it, what it would look like and how we would get there. I could appreciate and see her vision in my mind and knew she was right. Stephanie provided us phone numbers for contractors and we set to work transforming our house to look its very best. We worked within our limits and the final presentation exceeded our expectations. The house looked fabulous and we knew then, we could ask for more than we initially imagined and we could get it. Stephanie was always friendly, reachable, helpful and easy to work with. Once the house was photographed and listed, the house attracted immediate attention and sold in one week. The process of decluttering, organizing contractors, painters, staging etc and dealing with a chaotic house for a few weeks paid off in spades. We could not be happier with the outcome. Stephanie did a stellar job. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

It has been a pleasure to work with Stephanie. As first time home buyers, counting on her knowledge and experience was key during our purchase process. She was always flexible, very patient listening to what we wanted and also helped us to expand our options. We highly recommend her services and will work with her on our future real estate needs!
By: Rob and Jenni - October 2019
What can we say about Stephanie other than she’s one hell of an agent Our sale came with a lot of unexpected turns. With over 60 visits before and during the open house, multiple offers on the table, and last minute offers being retracted, it was nothing short of a whirlwind of a sale. Through it all Stephanie was a constant source of knowledge and encouragement that all would work out...and it did! In less than 24 hours after taking offers out house was sold over asking. We’ve worked with Stephanie for many years and will continue to work with her and refer her to others.
By: Jeannette and Michael - September 2019
We have nothing but the highest praise for Stephanie Cluett-Eid. She has worked with us several times, always with the very best results! Most recently she sold our house in less than a week from our first sit-down to the sold sign! Wow! Stephanie knows her stuff. She is smart, practical, encouraging and expert. You couldn’t find a better agent to work with!
By: Courtney and Steve – November 2016
We bought our first home with Stephanie and she was super helpful and patient through everything. Even when we changed our minds about what we were looking for several times. She was also very willing to accommodate our irregular work schedules. 10/10 would work with her again.
By: Ray – May 2012
I have bought and sold many homes before, but I have never worked with an agent like Stephanie. In my professional career I spent many years as a corporate trainer so I feel confident in saying that what Stephanie has cannot be taught. What Steph has is an amazing attitude, a highly tuned instinct and a never give up attitude that bodes well with her extensive real-estate experience and knowledge. In a time where the financial future of my life rested in her hands, she came through for me and exceeded my every expectation. My search for a lasting agent relationship is over.
By: Heather Pringle – July 2014
Stephanie helped me buy my first home, back in 2007, and was our only choice for an agent when it was time to sell that same home in 2014. She is approachable and always has time for questions and concerns. Her suggestions in terms of upgrading the place helped me improve the condo at a minimum price – and ultimately, Stephanie sold it for a substantial profit and with a minimum of stress on our family. Steph, we will be back soon for the next home purchase!
By: James & Allyson Nowell – July 2014
After a bit of a rough start in the Toronto housing market where we had registered with another agent, Steph was recommended to us by a friend who Steph had helped find their home nearly 10 years ago. She was still in contact with them, arrangements were made and we signed up with her immediately. Wow – what a difference it made with her as our agent! We were first time buyers and with the Toronto real estate market going crazy this spring, we are so glad we had Steph representing us and on our side. Her experience in the market was invaluable and any questions were answered in minutes. She was so efficient and precise that at no point in the whole process did it ever feel like she had any other clients, even though we know she had others at the same time. Steph always had time and no matter how awkward we were (and we know we were), did she ever let up this efficiency and enthusiasm. She always made us feel like her sole clients, driving all over the city to help us find our perfect home. We looked and looked, offered and were outbid – when our heads were dropping she would be there to help us keep on looking to find a great home. Steph has a few tricks up her sleeve too, which help with buying a house. She is wonderfully straight forward and always advocating for you – something we were soon to learn is a massive benefit (and a lot of fun). Her advice was fantastic and her contacts were as good as she wa,s making the whole process of buying a property gliche free. Buying a house is a stressful experience but after our offer had been accepted, we actually missed the emails and regular contact with her. We would not hesitate in recommending her as a realtor and she will be the first person we call should it look like we need to ever move again. We love our new house and it is truly our new home thanks to Steph. Thank you Steph!

Working with Stephanie was a real treat! She was recommended to us by an agent in our home town and, interestingly enough, a young lady who I had befriended on our train ride to Toronto. What a small world! After my first visit I knew we had the right agent for the job. Stephanie proved to be very knowledgeable and thus was able to answer all our questions and offer up some good advice. The additional value she brought to the table was having a clear understanding of what we were looking for. She was definitely respectful of our time and as a result everything she showed us pretty much fit what we were looking for. After two visits to the GTA we narrowed down our choices and Stephanie made herself available on a moment’s notice when a unit came up for viewing. After walking through the space and sending us pictures we felt very comfortable making an offer based on her recommendations. Thanks Stephanie for all your efforts. We couldn’t be happier!

5 star***** My wife and I had a nightmare of an experience when buying our first home. Thank god we met Stephanie when buying our second home. We were extremely nervous and cautious about everything, but Stephanie was able to very professionally guide us through each step of the buying and selling process. With the amount of education and nurturing she brought with her, we managed to find THE perfect new home. We really can’t say enough good things about Stephanie, and can’t imagine having to go through this process without her. To anyone buying or selling: Call Stephanie today!
By: Gary & Carman - June 2015
Thank you for educating us through every step of the way while we searched for our next home. It was a long journey but your professionalism, patience and unwavering commitment to make yourselves available to accommodate our busy schedules definitely surpassed our expectations! Thank you Stephanie and Laura!
By: Rebecca Guerin – October 2015
I am a repeat client of Stephanie’s for good reason. She made the buying and selling of my homes easy and painless, guiding me every step of the way. During the sale of my last home, I received an offer of 20k below my asking price (well below what I had hoped for) Disappointed, I was about to accept defeat…but Steph just whispered “this isn’t over”. I sipped wine while she went to work. Yada yada yada…My final selling price was 10k OVER asking with that one and only buyer!
By: Mary Jo Vradis, fellow realtor with Royal Lepage Estate Realty Ltd – October 2015
It's official, SOLD 110% of the asking price. Thank you Stephanie Cluett-Eid for all your patience and hard work. Couldn’t have done it without you.
By: Flynn family – October 2016
Stephanie is an outstanding agent that helped us with the purchase our family home back in Toronto. We were quick to act and Stephanie guided us with market data and support. We fully trusted Stephanie and calmed our fears buying a new build. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stephanie. Working with Stephanie over the years both buying and selling is truly a pleasure. I don’t know how she does it all but never had any doubt.
By: Patrick and Silvia – February 2017
Stephanie has amazing, in-depth knowledge of the real estate market in Toronto and has helped us successfully navigate it. She’s helped with staging, recommended contractors, provided cleaning services, put us in touch with brokers, helped us avoid common pitfalls and has successfully negotiated on our behalf. She’s done it all! Would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone that’s in a need of a great realtor!
By: Benita – February 2017
Stephanie guided us through the whole process of selling and buying with infinite patience and invaluable advice. Her outstanding negotiating skills sold our house for our “magic” number and then some! She has an amazing team of resources around her, the staging process was very professional and smooth, our house looked beautiful and ultimately sold within 36 hours with multiple offers for a stellar price. Stephanie is an outstanding real estate agent! We highly recommend The Style4Living team.
By: Jill & Claude - 2015
We had the privilege of working with Stephanie during the sale and purchase of our most recent homes. We knew from the very beginning that we had made the right decision to work with Stephanie; she was conscientious, organized, and always kept our needs and priorities in mind. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Toronto housing market and provided us with all the information we needed to make informed decisions. While Stephanie is always professional, her charismatic personality made the experience of buying a home a fun one! She is instantly relatable, trustworthy, and easy to talk to. She has a reputation in the real estate business as a fair and honest realtor. We will be passing on Stephanie’s name to any friends and family in need of a realtor. She cannot come more highly recommended.
By: Liz & Kelly Wiltshire
We had a fantastic experience working with Stephanie. Our house was sold in less than a week & above asking price! Stephanie really impressed us with her staging skills & overall recommendations. Stephanie is an excellent communicator who kept us all on the same page & aware of each step in the selling process. I would strongly & without hesitation, recommend Stephanie to anyone who is looking to have a positive real estate experience!
By: Gina & Kevin March - 2017
We first met Stephanie in 2004 where she led us through our home purchase. I still remember her opening and closing doors in every room commenting on anything from smells to the age of the furnace. Every year on the anniversary of our closing date we'd receive an anniversary card and a spreadsheet showing the homes in our neighbourhood and their current values. Thirteen years later Stephanie's knowledge and professional approach to real estate guided us through the selling of that home. We thank Steph and her Style4living team for making this journey a smooth ride
By: Brian & Sandra
Brian and I would just like to write a few words to you about how pleased we have been with your services and helping us with the purchase of our new home. From day one you both responded back to our phone calls right away and answered all the questions that we had regardless of time of day. We felt very confident when working with you and knew that we were in good hands. You both are always available and made time for us when we needed support. We did not feel pressured or mislead when deciding on which property would best fit our families needs instead you aloud us to see the pros and cons and gave us time to make our decision. You both gave amazing advice when Brian and I had no clue on what we were doing. we are now confident home owners. We couldn't be happier with our purchase and we owe it to you ladies for helping us through it. Thank you once again.

During the fall season of 2017 I decided to search for another home to suit our changing needs and enlisted Stephanie and the style4living team to assist. That turned out to be my best decision. She showed me how to get the house ready for sale and even recommended a painter to assist me in the preparation ,and less than two weeks later we were on the market. Through many open houses and media posts she gave us wide exposure to the market which was great as she had already helped me to find a great property that I quickly purchased. She helped us kept abreast of the changing market conditions and we trusted her to navigate us through a very stressful time which resulted in a successful sale in time for us to make the move to our new home without any issues! From staging my property and advising me on all sorts of matters pertaining to the sale , Stephani e was extremely helpful and that is why I would highly recommend using the style4living team to get the results you are looking for.
By: Viola - 2018
After last spring's hectic market I had decided to sell my investment property to take advantage of strong prices. As my luck would have it we ran into a confusing time after the Foreign Buyers and new legislation has just been implemented throwing the market upside down. Thankfully I made the right decision in choosing Stephanie and the Style4Living team to represent me! People should trust a professional like Stephanie to navigate the changes and to do all the work on their behalf as her extensive knowledge of the market, multiple ways to market your property including social media and in my case Stephanie's relationship with Builders all aided in getting my home sold at a great price. Selling my home at this time was an emotional roller coaster and Stephanie had to sell the house 3 times due to various reasons involving the turmoil in the market and len ding institutions BUT she kept her cool and all went smoothly for me in the end and I was quite satisfied with the results thanks to Stephanie.
By: Scott Stedman - 2017
My past experiences with Stephanie have always been courteous and professional. Her over and beyond support and assistance, have enabled the buying or selling experience to be fluent and stress free. I can always count on Stephanie to look out for my best interest. Always a pleasure to work with.
By: Stavros & Patricia
Seamless process and a true professional. From advice on how to stage to the final moments at purchase we felt confident that our priorities were paramount. Stephanie ensured we bought and sold for fair value based on her in depth technical knowledge not only on the homes but the neighbourhoods. She was great at guiding us on both the buying and selling sides of the spectrum. She negotiated to the end and had no problem advising us of the time to just walk away. We sold two properties and purchased one in a span of 4 months with Stephanie. Stephanie has a great team of resources affiliated with her to assist in these stressful moments. Her entire team took care of all our needs and we felt we were just along for an exciting ride. Great job Stephanie. I would not want to be travelling through the real estate maze without you.

We used Stephanie to sell and purchase our new house. She is professional, experienced and efficient. She was able to accommodate our family at every turn. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a house Toronto.
By: Paul & Ciara - 2018
I have purchased 4 properties in my life, all with Stephanie. My wife and I had been looking for a house for the past two years before making a purchase this past March. With rising prices and limited supply there wasn’t much worth seeing. But Stephanie continuously looked out for options for us, helping us explore different areas in Toronto or providing advice on different properties we were interested in. Just when I thought I may have found a place that we should buy, Stephanie would be my voice of reason, reminding me of why it may not be the right choice and why I should keep looking. That’s what I love about working with Stephanie - she is more focused on her long term relationship with you as a buyer vs. other agents who may be interested in a quick sale. Making a decision to buy a house is a big one, and one that needs to be made quickly when buying in Toronto. Having someone like Stephanie there to help you make those life changing decisions quickly is invaluable. She is truly someone I would recommend.

Stephanie provided superior services as a real estate agent for our family. In every way Stephanie went the extra mile, be it hiring workers to help move furniture to her climate controlled storage facilities, providing cleaners to make the house sparkle, to staging the house beautifully, including beautiful fresh cut flowers (the cat really appreciated them!). All through the selling and buying process Stephanie was prompt in her replies and provided all the support one needs while going through such a stressful event. She was both efficient and professional at all times. Stephanie completed the necessary research to secure us a fair price both buying and selling our respective homes. We received the price we wanted (selling) and we were able to purchase a new home that fit both our needs and budget. Stephanie brought creative solutions to our family to help us find the perfect house in the perfect location! Stephanie is a true professional that goes above and beyond in all areas of real estate and I would highly recommend her!
