Testimonials

We hired Stacie Pineda as our realtor to help sell the home we’d lived in for the past 17 years.  From the start, we appreciated her eye for what changes could be made to help sell the home, her personal knowledge of the local real estate market, her desire to reach the greatest pool of prospective buyers, and her availability whenever we had a question or concern.  The home, despite some unexpected renovation delays and a listing during several less-than-ideal showing months, sold within the time frame Stacie had originally projected.  We would highly recommend Stacie Pineda as a realtor.  
-- Paul & Karen Dagher

Stacie did a great job for me. She is well-informed about the local market, and the ever-changing real estate law in NC. She kept me in the loop and provided great advice as we got to the final negotiations. She is a true professional, and I say this as someone retired from a career in real estate management. If I were ever to buy or sell in the high country again, I would call on her to represent me.
-- John Lawton L & M Diversified Investments, LLC

Stacie was more than we could have asked for with our first home purchase.  being in the area for only one month we really relied on Stacie's local knowledge to guide us to a great neighborhood in our price range. We would highly recommend Stacie to anyone looking to purchase here in Boone.  Her annual Christmas party for her clients and work colleagues was an added bonus!

Stacie does a wonderful job of helping buyers to look at a range of homes to find what best meets their need.  She truly cares about helping to find the home that best suits you, the buyer. As a seller, Stacie does a great job of giving direction regarding the market in your area. She is also very active in helping to connect the right market for your home. When I approached Stacie about selling a home with me the second time, she was able to connect me with an appropriate buyer before we even put the house on the market. I know that Stacie always had my best interests at heart as both a seller and a buyer. -- Cindy

Stacie Pineda is a fantastic real estate agent with the knowledge and experience you will appreciate.  Having both purchased and sold homes this year, we can attest to Stacie’s efficient, professional work as an advocate for you as a buyer or a seller.  We made an offer on our home in Boone just before a busy holiday season.  The month or so between our offer and the closing date included four bank holidays, vacations for both realtors involved, an out-of-the-country trip for my husband, illnesses, etc.  Despite all the possible delays, Stacie handled our purchase in the most competent and timely way, relieving any concern that came up with her calm, reassuring manner.  We closed as planned, thanks to Stacie’s hard work (much of which is  “behind the scenes”).  When it came to selling our former house, we didn’t think twice about asking Stacie to serve as our listing agent.  Again, Stacie proved to be the right person for the job.  Our closing took place less than three months after listing.  Stacie was able to help us navigate through all the details and issues that came up.  Nothing flusters her.  She proved herself to be the trustworthy, hard-working, and caring partner we needed in these two transactions.  In addition to her professionalism, Stacie is simply a wonderful person, and it’s always a pleasure to work with her.  We are so thankful for her!  If you need a realtor in Watauga County, my husband and I highly recommend Stacie Pineda without reservation. -- Don and Shannon Cox, Boone, NC

Great job on a recent sale in Seven Devils North Carolina! -- Bo

Let me preface this review with a little context:  
My wife and I are considered “millennials” and recently purchased our first home.  As a result, we walked into the whole home buying process a little intimidated, a little overwhelmed, and incredibly suspicious of everyone.  We had seen many of our friends blindly walk in to the process, buy homes they simply could not afford, and suffer serious consequences only a few years later.  We were determined to be as meticulous and conservative as possible. 
Stacie came highly recommended from co-workers and others in the community, so we decided to give her a call.  Her intuition was obvious from the start as she easily identified how conservative we planned on being and how informed we wanted to be throughout the process.  She was incredibly respectful of our financial values and never once tried to talk us into anything.  In addition, she held our hand through the whole process, making sure we understood everything.  She did this all while showing us respect and never once making us feel stupid, bothersome or ignorant.  Additionally, I never once doubted that Stacie had our interests above anyone else, including her very own.  All in all, it was a very dignified home-buying experience. -- Eric and Dejah Huxley

Working with Stacie was a great experience.  Whether it was digging up old well reports, late evening showings, or hunting down a storm door that was accidentally taken from our purchased home, Stacie always went above and beyond.  The thing we liked most was the sense that she wasn't interested in making a quick sale, but was interested in making sure we found the right home for us.  We felt like we had an advocate on our side.  She is also personable and friendly and that makes the whole process more pleasant.  We highly recommend Stacie for your buying and selling real estate needs. -- Mark and Chasity

Stacie found a house for us in one day! And she helped in every way after - from the offer to the closing. She made the process almost easy. She was very professional but gave advice like a friend when asked. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a home in the Boone area. -- Angie H.

We have used Stacie to both buy and sell and have been exceptionally happy that we did. She sold our home quickly and helped us buy a home that was just what we were looking for. Stacie is so knowledgable and efficient, she had answers for us before we even knew to ask them. She is incredibly trustworthy and works so hard on her client’s behalf. We are so grateful for her. -- Matt and Jamie

Stacie came highly recommended to me by friends and local acquaintances. She generously spent her time and resources helping me to get my home ready to market and stuck with me, providing guidance, throughout the process. I would highly recommend her. --Nancy Correa

“We would like to recommend Stacie Pineda to you for your real estate needs.  She helped us find the ideal house.  Among other qualities, Stacie was very patient with us and worked hard to get answers to our questions.  She not only knows the real estate market in the High Country, she personally knows other realtors, attorneys, contractors, and home owners which helped us gain a better understanding of the uniqueness of this market.  She walked us all the way through this process and helped us find a great house for a great price.  We would highly recommend Stacie to you for your real estate needs.”
--Bill and Tricia Pfister  Boone, NC

"From staging through closing, Stacie Pineda managed the sale of our condo with professionalism and courtesy.  She has extensive knowledge of the Boone real estate market.  We took her sound advice each step of the way and everything went smoothly.  We would highly recommend Stacie to anyone looking for a realtor in the Boone area.” -- Jean Domanico

"We worked with Stacie for 2 home sales and 1 home purchase in the Boone, NC area. Her knowledge, responsiveness and insight were incredible and we have recommended her as often as possible. Even through some unexpected twists and turns in our lives, Stacie never pressured us to make decisions and always gave honest opinions.” -- Chris Blaha

I contacted Stacie on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Her comps were well researched and she has a great "feel" for the real estate market in The High Country.  Stacie took the time to listen to our concerns and answered all of the questions we had regarding the sale of our home, from the initial listing process right through the closing date. She offered great advice while we were negotiating the sale price and was helpful through the inspection process as well. Having a Realtor who cares and you can trust is important, therefore, based on my personal experience with Stacie, I highly recommend her. You'll appreciate her attention to detail, her knowledge of the area and her overall professionalism. -- Andy Miller

It is hard to put into words how amazing Stacie is. We were pessimistic that we would ever find the perfect house for our family because of our unique situation. Stacie not only worked hard to find us the house of our dreams, she was also our cheerleader and advocate every step of the way. There is no way we could have made it through the process without her. We ended up buying a home that far surpassed our expectations, and we're so very grateful to Stacie for everything she did to make that happen. --Melissa

My Son-in-Law and I spent 3 days with Stacie recently to find he and my daughter a home. It was an excellent experience all the way through. Stacie is warm, caring, a good listener, and she clearly knows her profession well. She knows the area and its many diverse neighborhoods and clearly communicates the information a potential home buyer would want to know. Most importantly Stacie's attention to detail is impeccable. This, for us became very important through the inspection, loan, and escrow process. She went above and beyond her duties to help coordinate and track the many details involved in closing on a home. If you are looking for an agent...I strongly recommend Stacie Pineda! --Rob Hunter 

Stacie is a good business woman. She knows Real Estate and her job well. She makes solid suggestions based on her expertise. Considering the weak market, I think she did well in getting us the best closing price we could have hoped for. Thanks Stacie. -- Joanna

When my husband and I began looking to buy our first home, Stacie came to us highly recommended. As first time home buyers, we were limited in experience and know-how. Stacie walked us through each step of the process and patiently guided us toward the right house for us. We were pleased to find she has a great knowledge of the High Country and was able to find us not only the right house, but the right area for our needs. We would recommend Stacie to anyone who asks. The only downside to finding our home is that we will no longer see her on a daily basis! -- Richard and Taylor

Stacie stuck with us through a long house search when we first moved to Boone and again when we sold years later! I have and will continue to refer people to her whenever possible! She is real, up front but leaves the decisions up to you. Thanks, Stacie! -- Cindy

Stacie truly cares about her clients. We moved from the other side of the country & knew nothing about Watauga County. She was wonderful in describing the area as we had housing, schooling and work locations to consider. We LOVE our house and neighborhood. She really listened to all of our needs and found the perfect spot.  -- March 2015

Stacie was a joy to work with! She went above and beyond to provide incredible service. I was so grateful that Stacie understood what I was looking for and sought ways to make it happen. Her initiative and care make her an incredible resource to have in your corner. I have recommended Stacie to many friends and would absolutely continue to do so. -- April

We loved working with Stacie Pineda! She did a wonderful job finding us a home to buy! She listened to our needs, and offered guidance when needed. She was flexible with our work schedule. She did a lot of research on the home we bought that we did not expect her to do, which was really helpful. -- Scott

"I am a real estate attorney in the North Carolina high country, and have had the pleasure of working with Stacie Pineda for many years. Stacie is one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. She is very conscientious, communicative, and stays on top of all details for her clients' transactions. She knows the market very well, and finds her clients exceptional deals. She is also a pro at listing and marketing properties for sale. I have been so impressed with her that my wife and I have hired her to help us with buying and selling our own homes. Stacie has earned my highest recommendation." -- Jim Edsall

We are pleased to recommend Stacey Pineda of ReMax Realty, Boone,NC for the purposes of real estate agent representation in the sale of your home. Stacey helped us in the sale of our four bedroom home in Boone in late 2014. We were very impressed in her attention to detail, and follow through in promulgating the sale of the home in a difficult market. Her suggestions often avoided pitfalls and subsequent problems in finalizing a complex sale. She was upbeat but also availed us of her market knowledge and the realities of the market. This avoided unreasonable expectations and led to a successful sale where others had failed. We would use Stacey again in a heartbeat. -- Douglas and Lynne Smith

"We enjoyed working with Stacie to find our house in Boone and we had limited time to do so.  She is knowledgeable of the market, professional, and friendly.

Thank you, Stacie.  July 2014
 
Stacie was extremely helpful with all aspects of selling our home.  Her excellent advice enabled us to sell our home to the first family who looked at our house.  June 2014
 
I asked Ms.Stacie Pineda to sell my condo in Boone, where the hills are overbuilt with students' housing. Thanks to her integrity, to her determination, to her patience and to the advice she gave me, we were able to bring the sale to a satisfactory conclusion. In a very short time she became a trusted friend, and I would highly recommend her professional services to anyone wanting to buy or sell their property. She is very qualified, and alert to fit the needs of her clients with the current imperatives of the market, an essential element of success. From a grateful and satisfied customer, JH March 2014
 
We had been looking for a house for over nine months with no success. A friend recommended we give Stacie a try. After our initial meeting with Stacie we immediately knew she was the realtor for us.

"(My husband) and I want to thank you for the outstanding job you did for us when we came to you looking for property.  We were looking for a needle in a haystack and you found it! It is only because of your diligent efforts and hard work that we were able to purchase such a nice property.

Having been a Realtor for 24 years, I know what an outstanding job you did and we both appreciate it.  We will continue to refer our friends and my clients to you because we know you will work just as hard for them."

"Stacie-Thank you so much for your guidance in the purchase of our first home!  You were incredibly helpful and kind as we embarked on this venture!"  --Boone, NC

"Stacie was a pure delight to work with to find our new home. She listened very carefully to our "wish" list, then made our wishes a reality.

"Stacie is incredibly thorough and very knowledgeable about the market and the value of homes. She was extremely helpful in moving us in the right direction..."  --Boone, NC.

"We chose to list our log home with Stacie Pineda, of RE/MAX Realtors in Boone, North Carolina because she was highly recommended to us. Now we know why!"

"When listing a home, you trust your Realtor can expedite the sale. One way in which Stacie did that was by making a list of issues up front that could be potential problems during the home inspection causing a delay or ultimately derailing the house closing. Stacie also knows who best to contact in the area for repairs."

"Stacie's entire Realty office works with the seller and updates them whenever the home is shown, giving all feedback, good or bad."

"She is up-to-date in keeping with the present day housing market for the area thus knowing how best to price the property. Stacie is not afraid to meet with the seller as many times as is necessary to gain the facts. She is very candid and frank about every issue. "

"Stacie is definitely the best Realtor in the area and we would recommend her to anyone."

It was a honor to work with Stacie, both on selling my home and purchasing a new one. I found her to be an honorable and honest person, who truly had my best interests at heart. There were challenges in selling my home, but Stacie helped me to carefully navigate each difficult situation that arose. I truly think that I would not have been able to sell my home without her careful advice and support. She was realistic, patient and supportive at every step in the process. She was worth every penny and more and if I ever choose to sell again, she will be my first choice as a realtor. I continue to give her my highest recommendation to all my friends and colleagues.

Stacie Pineda represented my husband and I as we pursued selling our home. She was friendly, thorough, and very helpful through the process. Stacie made our home closing as simple and easy as possible. We would highly recommend using her to anyone!  - Sellers, Boone, NC

"Stacie went above and beyond the call of duty, working day and night and on weekends as well, as she managed the purchase of our property. Her attention to detail and consistent, ongoing communication was especially helpful to us as out-of-town buyers. We will definitely call on Stacie again and would highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home."  - Buyers-Winston Salem, NC

"As a former real estate attorney, and as someone who has bought and sold numerous properties, I've dealt with hundreds of real estate agents over the years. In my experience, they fall into two categories. The first consists of "order takers" who fill out a standard contract, then sit back and wait for events to unfold. The second category consists of the professionals who understand real estate inside out, and know how to ensure even the most complicated deals make it to closing. Stacie clearly falls into this second category. She's honest, ethical, and really knows her stuff. I recommend her highly to anyone buying or selling real estate in Watauga County." - J.K., Naples, FL

"Thank you so much for assisting us in the sale of our home in Boone! You have exceeded our expectations serving as our REALTOR, and it has been a pleasure working with you.

When we were in the process of selecting a realtor, our biggest concerns were finding someone who would actively market our home and keep us informed during the marketing process. You did a fantastic job on both, and we will gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a top notch realtor. - Best wishes in all that you do!"

"Stacie is a remarkable realtor. I had high expectations for her and she exceeded them all. Her knowledge of the high country market was invaluable. She was straight forward and honest, but also worked incredibly hard. I am quite sure that we wouldn't have sold our home without her. I highly recommend her." - Ashley

"Stacie stood by us for a year and a half of house hunting. As first time home buyers we heavily relied on her knowledge of the real estate market and she did not let us down. We found a house with the potential for everything on our wish list at an unbeatable price. Her negotiation skills are top notch and she will not lead you astray. We will continue to recommend Stacie to our friends and will most definitely use her for all our future real estate needs."

"When I was looking for a realtor to sell my home in Boone, I carefully read through the testimonials and checked the listings of several realtors. Stacie's stood out for several reasons - mostly because everything sounded professional without sacrificing friendliness. From my first contact -which was by telephone in Chapel Hill -and subsequent meeting in Boone, I was impressed with her confidence, knowledge, and sincere desire to help sell my home. Stacie understood my difficulties with managing a property long distance, and offered useful suggestions for small repairs/ cleaning that needed to be addressed. Though she believed in the worth of the house - as I did - she also recognized the current housing market's influence on selling prices, and readily offered guidance when asked. Her support throughout the process made for a worry-free transaction, because I knew that every detail was being managed by her. One specific example that stands out in my mind: Though the laws had recently changed, Stacie believed that I, as the seller, should be reimbursed for any remaining fuel left in my 3 propane tanks... so she measured them. After measuring 2 in the cold and rain, she called and let me know of the amount. I told her the 3rd was probably similar and an approximation was fine by me. Still - in the rain - Stacie went out and measured the 3rd tank...which was more than expected...thereby saving me extra money. Her attention to detail, knowledge or the housing market, and professional and friendly attributes all make for an outstanding realtor. I will have a condo to sell in Boone in one more year, and plan on contacting Stacie at that time. I strongly recommend her services. "

"Thank you for your expertise and calm persistent diligence during the process of selling our home. It was a difficult process but your knowledge of the process, and of the intangible dynamics such as how our house compared to others in the market was extremely helpful. I will recommend you highly to anyone I know in need of a realtor!"

"Stacie, you were so much fun to work with and have a great personality and sense of humor. We appreciate you taking time in your evenings and weekends to help us find the right house and make the purchase final. You were very accessible and easy to get a hold of and that made trying to purchase a house while in another state much easier! We also appreciated how honest you were with us during the whole process and really felt you had our best interest in mind. Thank you for helping us make the dream of our first house a reality!"

"I truly appreciate all your help during this process. It's obvious to me why you are successful in this industry. I wish you many continued successes."

"Stacie is a fantastic professional to work with. She seamlessly guided us through the purchase of our first home, and even when negotiations became more difficult, Stacie was quick to suggest creative solutions that avoided all conflict and resolved any concerns. Stacie is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the housing market and we highly recommend her for any first time home buyer." - Dan and Louise
