Read what others are saying about The Stefanie Pratt Team- Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group
My husband & I made the decision to leave our home town & move to Champaign/Urban even tho he still worked in our home area. The investment would be safer than where we had lived for most of our lives & we knew we would have a better retirement re-sale value for our home. As older people we did not want a home with maintenance or have to re-do as we are not able & the cost would be more to have this done. After looking in the area, we could not find anything we felt we would want to buy . Thankfully our realtor, Stefanie Pratt asked us to consider building in the Urbana area with easy access to interstate 74. We never thought about building, but pursued this with her expertise & help. Stefanie introduced us to a builder & we began the process. We are thrilled that we trusted & took Stefanie’s advice to consider this option. After a year of being in our home, we love our location & with the builder”s expertise & Stefanie’s, we are blessed to have a home that fits all our needs, everything is energy efficient, new & maintenance free.
I was a first time home buyer and was not knowledgeable at all to the home buying process or real estate market. I used a couple realtors before Stefanie Pratt and but did not receive personal attention nor answers to questions that I deemed were essential. Stefanie was very attentive to my needs of what I was looking for in a home and did not try to push me into anything I did not need. She was able to answer all questions of the housing market I was looking to buy and even was able to answer questions pertaining to my housing loan. I was very impressed with the follow-up with Stefanie and she was flexible with my work schedule. I used Stefanie again to sell my home (due to relocation) and I could not be any more amazed at how expeditious she was to list the home. Stefanie has made my relocation stress free because I am not in the state to handle matters of the home. I would definitely use Stefanie Pratt and Associates if I'm ever in the area again to buy a home.
Stefanie helped us purchase our home back in 2003 and helped us sell it when we were ready to move on years later.
When we first met her, we admired her devotion to her clients and her knowledgeable guidance through the confusing process as first time home buyers back then. She was great then, and that has not changed one bit. If anything she has sharpened those skills, and gone on to teach them to her other associates. It's easy to see why she has become a rock-star realtor in the area!
Fast forward to our experience in selling our home - which was MUCH more complicated than buying! We had already left the area when the house went up for sale, and had a number of things happen during the time we were not in it, and Stefanie had continuously gone above and beyond with helping us. Not being even closeby, we depended in Stefanie to be our eyes & ears for everything having to do with the property. I can't even begin to explain all she's done for us, so I'll have to simplify it with this: There were issues left from a previous tenant who had not treated the house kindly, and in addition to helping us get it back in shape to put on the market, she also kept a close eye on it during the brunt of our far-from-mild winter which led to a few other things. She let us know of anything that needed to be tended to right away. She was proactive, and always made sure we were in good hands, and she is a master negotiator. In general, Stefanie has fantastic working relationships with just about anyone in the business of taking care of homes. She knows the community inside and out, and advises with utmost honestly and integrity. She treats people fairly and she will always put her clients first. She clearly loves her job, and works excruciatingly hard at it.
Stefanie FAR exceeds the level of dedication, compassion, and professionalism one could ever ask, and does so because she truly cares, not about making a buck, but about the people who trust her as their realtor.
Our experience has been very promising with Stefanie Pratt. She helped us purchase our very first home together as well as in the process of a pending sale with our Condo. We feel that she has taken us step by step along the way of both purchase and Sale with ease and great communication between she and us. We TRUST her completely bringing us through to the end. Trust, Knowledge, Communication and Confidence are what we have experienced in Stefanie and with those qualities we feel very assured and at ease to have her as our Realtor.
Stefanie Pratt is an excellent real estate agent! She took the time to listen to our needs and she quickly set up showings which were very great matches for us. We recommend Stefanie Pratt to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in Central Illinois.

"Our experience with Stefanie was wonderful! She sat with me before listing our home and really explained the selling process. She did not pressure us to list but as soon as we decided to list with her she got right to work! We listed our house on a Thursday night, by Friday we had showing requests to show and by Sunday afternoon we had accepted an offer. She really is a wonderful and knowledgeable agent!"

"I had just gone through a bunch of stressful life changes in a short period of time. When I decided to buy a home, Stefanie knew I had a lot on my plate already, and made buying a home with her help a smooth and seamless process. She spent all day showing me many different homes, helped me narrow it down and when I chose the one, she got the offer in and a signed accepted contract within hours. No waiting and wondering and stressing. The whole process went smooth. I highly recommend Stefanie Pratt. She really cares about her clients and it shows in so many ways!"

We never had a doubt after a few years of sitting on some lots that Stefanie could move these for us. Well done! We sold the remaining 5 lots in a subdivision so we could move forward after having them listed through a few different agents over the years. She also sent a nice, personal note after which was very meaningful.
We didn't think we would get someone as good as Stefanie, she was amazing! We were relocating out of the area so lots to do and keep up with. She communicated in a timely manner, met to prepare us for the market and was on top of the entire process. We would recommend Stefanie to anyone that needs a Realtor.
