Stacy Stavinoha-IMG_6771Stacy Stavinoha

CT Realty Broker

Stacy and her husband sold their boat dealership in San Antonio after 17 years and began a worldwide search of where they wanted to live.  Key factors in their search were a smaller school for their daughter to attend, a good golf course, a real sense of community and, of course, great weather. They found it all at Comanche Trace, where Stacy now enjoys working in the community that she loves.

INTEGRITY, SERVICE BEFORE SELF, and EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO.   As a proud military veteran, these are three core values that I apply to my everyday life and the same manner in which I serve my clients.

My wife Sharrel and I left the Pacific Northwest for the great state of Texas in 2016 and have never looked back.  Although I'm not a native Texan, I always tell folks, "I got here as soon as I could!"  We consider ourselves very blessed to call the Texas Hill Country our home and enjoy exploring everything the area has to offer.

My background in real estate finance along with a network of some of the best professionals in the industry allow me to assist my clients with getting into the best possible position to purchase or build their next home.  I believe folks should go into every real estate transaction being prepared with their eyes wide open.

I pride myself on having savvy negotiating skills, great attention to detail, and knack for finding good value. Most of all, it is my goal to make the process of finding a home a fun and enjoyable experience.  I look forward to serving you.
