From the day I met Stephanie I trusted she would put our needs and wants in mind. She was recommended from friends that had recently utilized her. She spent time making videos and explaining the details of the process along the way. We were moving from Vermont and had many extra stressors. She never pressured us and made me feel supported with all of our concerns. I felt as if she cared about our feelings and made us excited about our new home. She accommodated meeting with family to ensure it was a great place for us. Thank you Stephanie! We would recommend her all day and everyday. View More Info at

Energetic. Caring. Dedicated. All understatements. Stephanie truly cares about her clients and their needs. She takes the time to listen and then stops at nothing to try and get them what they want. My list was no small feat, but she found me the home of my dreams. The first two days I met Stephanie she spent 10 hours days with not just myself and children, but also my parents. Moving from overseas and looking at homes while keeping my husband virtually connected was a daunting task, but she took the time to answer questions from all of us. After seeing 50+ homes in under a week, I wasn't willing to settle and took the steps to secure an apartment and wait for my forever home. Just at that moment, Stephanie saw my dream home come on the market and we were the first to see and bid on it. I am now living in not only the house I wanted, but the community that met every checkmark on my current and retirement wish list.  View More Info at

Jim McKinnell recommends Stephanie Sanalila

Wanting to be near our grandchildren, we found ourselves in the position of looking for a home in a new city. First time in the real estate market in over 30 years, and in the middle of a pandemic, we found ourselves needing a realtor. We found the perfect guide in Stephanie Sanalila. She had endless patience, showing us scores of homes to look at. We finally decided to build. Not knowing the process of building a new home, Stephanie, over the course of a year, walked us through the process of using a builder, often being prophetic in foreseeing the trouble spots ahead.
Stephanie was there for us from the first greeting with cold drinks and chocolate treats, to supporting us and answering any questions at the closing. We highly recommend Stephanie, and at the end of this experience, we have a beautiful new home and wonderful friend.

Stephanie was a life saver! We had not met her, only talked to her over the phone since we were looking for a house out of state. She completely rescheduled her time to accommodate us for the one week we were going to be in town. She is professional and very knowledge of the St. Johns, St. Augustine area. Once we found the perfect house and we did, she made everything easy. We highly recommend her!! View More Info at

Stephanie is absolutely great! My family and I relocated from the New England to St. John’s. Stephanie was clearly the right choice for us as our buyer’s agent. It’s difficult to narrow down Stephanie‘s best qualities as a agent as there are many. She is very attentive to all details, available anytime and responsive however what is abundantly clear that she is the local expert and for us learning the area that was so helpful! That is Possibly her best quality! If you are moving to Jacksonville, St. Johns or the Saint Augustine area I would highly recommend using Stephanie as your buyers agent. I am sure she brings these same skills and is a amazing listing agent as well. Five stars all the way! View More Info at

Stephanie took charge of our new build from start to finish. We were able to travel in our RV all over the US during the build. Any small issues were immediately resolved by her.
4 years in; zero issues.

I’ve worked with Stephanie twice now and both times she’s gone above and beyond. I recommend working with her as she not only gets the job done but she’s also an expert negotiator and an expert at finding the right home. She’s very patient and willing to work with you to make sure you understand the process and she makes sure you get a full understanding of the current marker is doing in the area. I will absolutely work with her again if I ever get the chance. View More Info at

Jennifer Salinas recommends Stephanie Sanalila

Purchasing a home, especially a new build, is so stressful. Then add to that, doing it from out of state and it goes to another level. I was so lucky to have found Stephanie. She held my "hand" through it all. I depended on her and she came through every step of the way. Stephanie went above and beyond, doing more than I could have ever expected from an agent. She asked questions that I would never have thought of and checked on my new build townhome often so that I could feel more a part of the process and I always looked forward to her updates, including pictures and videos. Communication was so crucial and she stayed on top of everything. Even though we have since closed, she is still helping to guide me through the transition. I could not have asked for someone better to look out for the interests of my family.

Being that we were making our purchase from out of state, Stephanie became our eyes and ears during the purchase of our new home, in Florida. Stephanie made us feel comfortable throughout the process and truly went far above and beyond, for us. We will definitely ask Stephanie to assist us when we are ready to upgrade into our next Florida home. We would be nuts to go with anyone else. View More Info at

Ryan Ashley recommends Stephanie Sanalila

Stephanie helped us purchase a home over the length of a year because when my wife and I first entered the market it didn't feel quite "right."

She worked with at least one seller that didn't seem to like realtors and communicated with/coordinated with 10 to 15 sellers before we found the house we bought. And this was during the absolute crazy market that was the first half of 2021 in NE Florida. And halfway through the whole thing we had to find a new lender due to a poorly scheduled appraisal.

Then once we found our home to buy Stephanie sold our house in approximately three days. She got top quality photos, arranged an open house, spoke to 50 different parties between Saturday and Sunday and coordinated multiple back-and-forth issues with the buyers due to an insurance concern.

All told the process related to Stephanie was stress free. The overall process had it's ups and downs but Stephanie is an open communicator and an aggressive advocate for her clients. I hope to never move again but if I do I'll be calling Stephanie first.

Thanks! View More Info at

Leo Tarnawa recommends Stephanie Sanalila

My daughter-in-law recommended Stephanie to us when we were making a move to St Augustine. Stephanie knew St Augustine so well and was able to help us narrow down the areas we wanted to live in. She listened to all our needs and wants, and helped us navigate a very difficult buyers market. She helped us stay positive and patient when the houses we liked had dozens of offers, and was in constant communication with us to keep us up to speed. Once we found our house and the offer was accepted, she continued to work with us with inspectors and the title company to ensure a smooth closing. Stephanie went above and beyond to help make the home buying experience the best she could, and we are grateful for her professionalism and knowledge, her upbeat attitude and her kindness. We would recommend Stephanie to anyone looking to buy or sell here in St Augustine! View More Info at

Stephanie was by far the best Realtor I’ve had the pleasure of working with. My family and I will forever be grateful to her. She makes the home buying process not just easy but exciting. She did everything with our best interest and always made sure we had all the information possible on every house we visited. She was flexible with her time and knows a great deal of the area she works in. She is always ahead of every step that had to happen during escrow and because of her we closed early. It was actually a bitter sweet moment when we finally got keys to the house since we would no longer be working with her but In the end we made a friend. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. She an agent that’s out for your best interest and does her job exceptionally well. View More Info at

We used Stephanie Sanalila with NextHome First Coast to sell our beloved first home in St. Augustine, FL this spring. Stephanie is a self-motivated entrepreneur with a wealth of knowledge about the local housing market. She has an engaging personality and genuinely cares about her clients. She established a level of comfort and trust, which was of the upmost importance to us. Stephanie provided helpful information to assist with preparing our home for sale and when we saw the listing we were blown away! Her sharp professionalism and attention to detail is outstanding! After several showings and multiple offers, we were under contract in less than a week! Stephanie facilitated the sale of our home effortlessly, and the same is true regarding the purchase of our new home. She guided us every step of the way, always keeping our best interest as her top priority. Stephanie went above and beyond to ensure this entire process was a great experience for us, and she did not disappoint! We absolutely love our new forever home, and we are so grateful to have shared this journey with Stephanie and the NextHome First Coast team! View More Info at

Stephanie is amazing. She is very knowledgeable, dedicated and a great communicator. We saw a house on line and really wanted to see it. My daughter called Stephanie (she helped her last year sell 2 houses and buy a new construction). Stephanie was able to get us a quick showing. We were able to make an offer and have it accepted that weekend above other offers. She then helped us prepare our house to put on the market. It was listed and sold in less than 24 hours. We could not have done this without her. She made this process less stressful and we could not be any happier. View More Info at

Stephanie is more than amazing. She is super woman and the best of the best realtors around. Stephanie was so nice to walk me through the process of selling my first house and made it so easy for me. From day one she gave me all the information I would need and made it a great experience. The pictures of the house were amazing. And she sold my house in 1 day!

Stephanie was EXACTLY what we needed in a real estate agent. Professional, knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator. We enlisted the help of Stephanie to sell three of our homes and purchase a new construction home in our dream neighborhood. Stephanie sold our properties quickly and for top dollar. She negotiated on the purchase of our new construction home and did not hesitate to escalate issues throughout the build when needed. We are confident that our transactions would not have gone as smoothly if we didn’t have Stephanie by our side. She gave us confidence and encouragement as she guided us through the process of selling and buying. Thank you, Stephanie, for making our dream a reality!  View More Info at

Stephanie is by far one of the best Realtors I have ever worked with. She is incredibly helpful but also realistic and tries to put herself in your shoes.
