Real Estate Broker Stephanie was raised in Richardson, where her parents operated a family real estate business. Playing as a child, she would pretend to run the business and show houses. When the opportunity presented itself early in her adult life to enter the real estate world, it made sense.
After working a few years in commercial real estate she decided to get licensed and transition to residential real estate in 2007. Shortly after, we entered the worst real estate market experienced in the US. It was obvious to Stephanie that the business as usual model was not going to work the same way anymore.
While many real estate professionals left the business, Stephanie began listening to builders and developers discuss the science of building and learned tremendously about the construction of homes. She recognized when smarter design ideas are implemented and a more thoughtful process is utilized, the performance of the home improves and functions better.
The term is called a high performance home. Stephanie also noticed that when looking at a green home next to a non-green house, the naked eye wouldn’t necessarily see the difference. This is when Stephanie Stuer decided she would get her broker’s license and open the first real estate brokerage in north Texas to specialize in green and sustainable homes.
At that time, the only green homes you could find were close to a million dollars and up in Dallas. Things have improved much since then and the consumers have greatly caught on to their purchasing power and expect more in performance and features now.
Stephanie is a licensed real estate broker in Texas and has received her GREEN designation from the National Association of Realtors. Stephanie has also been featured on HGTV’s, My First Place and WFAA’s, Good Morning Texas.
