Stephanie Doherty
HomeSmart Connect
About Stephanie

Stephanie's moniker of "Your Fox Valley Connection" is quite familiar with Fox Valley residents. A resident of St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia, Stephanie has called the Fox Valley home since her teenage years. Her familiarity with the area enables her to acquire top dollar for her listing clients, and find "the perfect home" for her buyers. 80% percent of Stephanie's business comes from satisfied past clients. Why do they consistently refer Stephanie? "My clients recognize their high confidence level in me and know that I will do what it takes to close the transaction representing THEIR best interests. Once you have spent such a great deal of time with someone, the bond you develop is inevitable." My philosophy is to provide my clients the highest level of attention, honesty, communications and services which is exactly what I would expect if I was buying or selling a home. "Too many agents in our marketplace care more about market share and volume of sales. When you put people first the business automatically follows!"
