Stephanie Hofman

I am not simply a salesperson. As a Highland Park, IL Realtor I know that it is more important now than ever before to have a real estate agent on your side who will help you navigate a challenging marketplace. I aim to get my sellers the most amount of money for their home in the least amount of time and to help my buyers find their dream home at the best value possible.

The hallmarks of my business:
Attention to detail, genuine concern for my clients, unmatched levels of personal service and communication, sharp negotiating skills, thorough and timely market knowledge, and the desire to provide the best real estate experience possible are the characteristics that set me apart from every other agent out there.

I've been where you are...

In 2010, I sold my own home and purchased a new one, so I approach each seller and buyer with a level of empathy and honesty most other agents don’t have. I always have my clients’ best interest at heart, and will tell you what you NEED to know to get your house sold, not what you WANT to hear–it’s crucial to have the most clear and realistic understanding of the market possible. I don’t just talk the talk, I’ve walked the walk in this challenging market, so you can trust my advice.

An array of professional and academic experience that combine to make a great real estate broker!
I bring over 15 years experience in the fields of marketing, sales and client service, plus a passion for residential real estate and a client-centric approach to my business. As an advertising account executive and a pharmaceutical sales rep, I learned the importance of managing my clients' businesses and tailoring a marketing message to the right audience. I earned a Master's Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Northwestern University and learned how to put together a cohesive marketing plan and leverage all types of media, including social media and blogging.

Who are my clients?

I work with a vast array of clients: first-time homebuyers making that exciting first home purchase, seniors transitioning to the next phase of their lives, couples going through the stressful process of divorce and balancing both parties' wants and need, families re-locating from out of state and out of the country, sellers navigating the difficult process of a short sale, upsizing or downsizing, and more.  No one transaction is exactly like another, but the constant is that each transaction requires a skilled, compassionate and shrewd agent to provide the best results possible.
