About Stacey Santos
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE. WHY DID YOU BECOME A REAL ESTATE AGENT?
My journey into real estate began in 2000 when I joined Fidelity National Title. I grew in experience as a loan processor for Flagstar Bank and then as an escrow coordinator before I eventually started running marketing meetings in Tracy, CA for other realtors. I did take some time away from the industry for awhile but was pulled back in after I decided to buy, sell and flip properties. It seemed like the natural progression was to obtain my real estate license and I haven’t looked back since! It helps that I have a loving, supportive family by my side as I tackle this next endeavor.
WHAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT FROM OTHERS AGENTS?
I understand and am knowledgeable about the entire process from start to finish. Not only do I offer exceptional customer service, but I maintain a high level of trust that ensures my clients privacy.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO REAL ESTATE, DOES ANYTHING FROM YOUR PREVIOUS JOB HELP YOU AS AN AGENT?
I have worked through various parts of the industry including Title & Escrow as a Sales Representative, Notary, Loan Processor, and Escrow Coordinator. In addition my prior experience running events lends a watchful eye to detail and design which home buyers appreciate.
DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN A SPECIFIC CITY OR CITIES?
As a resident Northern Californian, I have lived all over including Alameda County, Contra Costa County, and the Central Valley.
WHAT ARE THREE WORDS YOUR CLIENTS WOULD USE TO DESCRIBE YOU?
1. Knowledgeable — I understand the process and want you to be armed with as much information as you need to make the right decision.
2. Trustworthy — I will never compromise a client’s private details and maintain a high-level of integrity throughout the entire home buying process.
3. Transparent — I will always be honest throughout the process. If I do not have the answer, I will make sure that I get it from the right person for you.
WHAT MOST EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?
Seeing people’s faces light up as they make their dreams a reality and walk into their first home!
WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?
My sister Monique has been a huge inspiration to me with her unstoppable drive and commitment to growth! She has been investing in real estate since she was 22 years old and her portfolio is impressive.
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
After a long day you can catch me playing with my dog Maximo at the park! Long weekends call for cycling or a good game of golf! I’m also planning on joining in the volunteer efforts to raise money for the walks for autism and Alzheimer’s .
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO A 5-YEAR-OLD CHILD IF HE OR SHE ASKED YOU WHAT THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS?
Spend your days bringing joy to as many people as possible!
WHAT WAS THE HAPPIEST MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE?
I can not possibly pick just one moment of happiness! There are so many moments in my life that have been filled with happiness! Many people have touched my life and brought so much joy to it. I live my life to the fullest and with absolutely no regrets! I have found that a good balance between family and work is the recipe to my success.
