Stewart Realty deserves five stars! As an out of state client...Jeff spent so much of his time...assisting me during some unforeseen issues...and making sure I understood every detail...always in my best interest. I have already referred Jeff to a friend...and would continue to do so. He by far...exceeded his expertise! Posted By: Paula Mitchell, Parma, ID
I’ve purchased several homes over the years, but I’ve never worked with any realtor the caliber of Stewart Realty. They far exceed their goals of providing the best possible service, demonstrating flawless integrity and assuring that you get the results you desire. To that end, they make it their mission to meet your needs by asking pertinent questions, taking the time to listen well, and doing everything they can to make the process run smoothly. They provide a timeline of what to expect as you interact with the mortgage company, the escrow company and the home inspector, and gladly attend related meetings to support you. Furthermore, they are consistently kind, good natured, accessible, and helpful, which makes it all a very enjoyable experience. I can’t say enough good about Stewart Realty.

For 3 years Jeff kept me updated about homes and new developments close to our children and Grand kids. When a new subdivision opened within a few blocks of our son, Jeff was there to help us with building our new home. The builder was difficult to work with and Jeff always had our backs. It took 20 months from start to finish and Jeff was always there for us. We are grateful that he insisted that we have a 3rd party independent inspector to go over the property before we closed. This is our 4th new home. We had previous homes built while living out of the area or across the country and never had the problems with a builder that we had with the one in Meridian. Jeff did all the dirty work for us and in the end he personally installed the handicap hand railing in the bathroom. Not part of his job description. That is the kind of dedication he has to his clients. Thank you Jeff and staff. If you need someone that is in your corner during a moving process Jeff will be your White Knight in Shining Armour.

Thank you so much for helping us find our dream home. Your service was amazing, and very friendly. Made this whole process less stressful. Will recommend to friends and family! Thanks for everything! Posted by: Stephanie Joiner, Middleton, ID
We have never had a Realtor that was so good to work with. We have always been a little hesitant to use a Realtor but Jeff made it worth it. Jeff was very thorough, dependable, and always did what he said he would do. He earned our respect and trust. Jeff knows the market and knows houses. He went the extra mile in every situation to help us during the sale of our home. He kept us informed of every detail and offered helpful suggestions along the way. Because of his experience in appraising homes, we felt like he was more qualified than other Realtors to help us in a tough market. He went beyond our expectations and treated us so well. He is very professional in a humble, honest, and respectable way. We would recommend him to our closest friends. Posted By: Cynthia and David Smedley, Nampa, Idaho
Jeff and his team were phenomenal. We bought our house and sold our house with him and he was a total professional. He used techniques that benefited us and protected us through the entire process. We had some challenging situations and he had an answer to every problem and resolved every situation. He was with us every step of the way and was physically there with us every step of the way. He came to our closing and signings, he was there when we had contractors come, was there for the inspection, and was available to us whenever we needed him. It is really too bad that there is not an option for additional stars on his rating because he deserves them. He is honest, fair, and ethical. He follows through on things, and always exceeds expectations. He and his home inspector caught some things that could have cost us thousands of dollars to fix and helped us negotiate with the owners to get them fixed. We watched him take the high road many times when others may have done something less. We are totally impressed by him. The communication with us and other realtors was phenomenal. He knows the market better than anyone and made solid pricing recommendations when we bought and sold. He was exactly right. However, he never pushed us to do anything. We listed where we felt comfortable and he completely supported us and helped us to get top dollar for our house we sold. His thoughts on preparing our house to sell were excellent and his overall knowledge of the process is always right on! He researched things out and knew exactly where we should be. His feedback from anyone that walked through our home was extremely helpful as we tried to market it. We have worked with other realtors and can compare him to others. He was incredible and stands above anyone else we have worked with in the past. Really not even a comparison. He is patient, kind, and well respected! We will work with him on our next real estate deal. THANKS JEFF! Posted by: Matthew & Nicole Gamette, Meridian, ID
Responsive, thorough, knowledgeable, courteous are just some of the adjectives that describe our experience with Jeff in buying our home in Eagle, Idaho. Living in California and relocating to the Boise area, we needed a real estate agent that would look out for our best interest. Every phase from property locations to final closing, Jeff demonstrated his professionalism while guiding us every step of the way. We strongly recommend using Jeff’s services in finding your home in the Boise area. Posted by: Mike and Denise Willett, Eagle, ID
Neil and I would like to thank you for your invaluable assistance in the purchase of our property. Your knowledge and expertise of real estate in the Boise area enhanced our ability to locate exactly what we desired. We very much appreciate all of the time you invested, along with your patience and professional courtesy. Your performance as our advocate was a true blessing and comfort. Thank you so much Jeff for all your hard work. You are a light in the world and we are glad to know you. We will recommend your services to everyone. Posted by Neil & Sheri Partyka, Garden City, ID
As out of state investors, we had to know we were dealing with a realtor that was honest, knowledgeable, aggressive, dependable and willing to go the extra mile to help us be successful. Jeff has never disappointed us in any facet of our dealings with him. When we decided to invest in Idaho, the only thing we knew were broad market dynamics. We knew very little about the local real estate market. Jeff got us up to speed very quickly and he continues to be our local resource. We find his input to be accurate, well researched, and timely. Jeff has helped us find a significant number of investor properties that are meeting our every expectation in performance. Through his professional network, he has introduced us to a mortgage banker, insurance agent, property manager, inspector, and title company. All have been solid performers. Because Jeff has performed so well for us, we continue to use him as we build our real estate portfolio. We couldn't recommend him more highly. If you want an effective real estate professional, you can't do better than Jeff Stewart. Posted By: Clint & Lesley Arnoldus Salt Lake City, Utah
Having the experiences we had with our last Realtor/lender combo my wife and I made a commitment to choose more wisely for our next sale/purchase. This choice led us to Jeff Stewart. It appears now that after the complete process concluded we found a gold mine. Jeff's knowledge of real estate processes and nuances provided us with very sure footing in the sale of our house (in less than 10 weeks). My wife and I are pretty confident in our ability to command needs for ourselves, however without clearly understanding real estate law we'd be out on our own. Jeff constantly reassured us of the process from start to finish. Jeff also offered a "what he'd do in our shoes" type of advice and this allowed us to relax in a stressful situation. Jeff presents himself in a very professional manner and projects himself calmly and confidently. One thing Jeff did that really surprised me was accompany my wife and I to the final signing for our house. This may be normal for you, however it was the opposite experience in previous situations. I had to ask him if this was normal and in a calm way expressed this was a 'part of the full package' deal that he offered. This left my wife and I pleasantly surprised and it was a nice polishing-off of an already beautiful experience. Thanks Jeff! 5 Stars of course! Posted By: Gary Edgington, Melba, Idaho
Our first home-buying experience was great with Stewart Realty. Jeff encouraged us to take our time in finding the right fit for us. He wasn't interested in pushing us into the first house that came along, just to get a sale. He took time to talk to us about our needs and wants, and helped educate us about the process, since this was our first time going through it. We are very pleased with the house that we bought, and very pleased with our experience with Stewart Realty. We have already recommended him to some friends, and will continue to do so. Posted by: Ricky & Heather Bowman, Meridian – Idaho
When we first started looking for property in Idaho we weren't sure exactly where we wanted to be except somewhere near Boise. I found Jeff's site on the internet and contacted him and I 'm so glad we did. We were living in Washington and Jeff was so willing to listen to what we were looking for and send us listings that met our criteria. When it came time for us to travel to look at properties Jeff arranged everything so we were able to look at as many places within our time frame as possible. I think the first day we traveled over 200 miles. It took a couple of trips but with Jeff's patience and knowledge we looked at house's from Boise to Council and I think by the end of our search he needed an oil change with all the miles. We can't say enough good things about Jeff and his staff and would recommend to anyone looking for a house to contact him. Thanks Jeff for going that extra mile!

When my family and I decided to relocate from Midland, TX to Meridian, ID, we knew our greatest challenge would be finding a house that would fit our needs and wants for a growing family of 5. After emailing several real estate agencies, we chose Stewart Reality. We couldn't have made a better decision. Not only did Jeff know the area very well, he was able to provide us with insight and great information. His communication was prompt; we never felt like we were three states away. Thanks to his commitment to us, we have found our new home. We highly recommend Stewart Realty. Posted by: Curtis Hoagland, Meridian, Idaho
Selling your home can be difficult in the best of times. Selling your home as a short sale only compounds the difficulties. Having a great Realtor made all the difference. Jeff and Nicole walked us through the processes step by step with assistance, understanding and competence. Even dealing with the bank was tolerable because of the expertise of Stewart Realty LLC. I would highly recommend them any time you are buying or selling a home no matter the situation. I owe a great big Thank You to both Jeff and Nicole. Posted by: Brekk Macpherson, Meridian, Idaho
I recently sold my home in Meridian. After working with another realtor that just didn't work out, I found working with Jeff to be a blessing. He was nothing but helpful, kind, supportive and knowledgeable. Jeff and his office manager, Nicole was so wonderful during this stressful time. They were always available as resources and quickly responded to any questions or concerns. They both were a tremendous help during the process and worked very hard with the bank and the buyer's realtor to make this transition as smooth as possible. Unfortunately my house was sold as a short sale, but Jeff made the process much easier. He had answers to questions and if he did not know the answer, he quickly found it. He worked with the bank and did the necessary foot work to make sure that everything went smoothly. I can't recommend Jeff and his team more strongly. They were a bright spot during a tough time and without a doubt, I will call Jeff when I am ready to buy again. Thank you! Posted by: Sherri Macpherson, Meridian, Idaho
After living 60+ years in Missouri we decided to move to Meridian, Idaho. It was a big decision and we had many question regarding neighborhoods, houses, subdivisions, builders, to name just a few. Jeff Stewart was very highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed. He answered all our questions and offered many helpful suggestions. He always responded promptly and never complained even though we asked to tour many, many homes on our visits to Meridian. The house we decided to buy was a foreclosure. This added extra questions and details to the closing process. Jeff handled it all efficiently and arranged for us to close on the property even though we were 1500+ miles away in Missouri. We love our home and do not plan to move for many years but if we do we will definitely call on Jeff to help us find our next home. Posted By: Phil & Janie Magruder, Meridian, Idaho
My husband and I were looking for our retirement home in Idaho. We lived in California, and I was searching on the internet. I reached Jeff's website and he contacted me and stated would send me houses to look at within our price range, square feet, acres, etc. Looking through the listings he sent was so much easier. We were planning to fly down and look at these but we really did not want an agent since some as we know can be very aggressive. Jeff wasn't and he was so helpful and knowledgeable of all the areas we were looking at. Behold, we found our house and now we are just loving it. It turned out to not be a big stressor for us being out of state for the closing since he kept on top of the things that needed to be done and made sure they were done. I would recommend him to anyone! Great Job Jeff! Posted By: Jeri & Lupe Denogean, Caldwell, Idaho
My wife and I recently purchased our first home. A friend of ours introduced us to Jeff shortly after we had seriously begun looking for a house. At that point we had not selected a Realtor and were impressed at how much Jeff offered to help without demanding that we immediately sign a buyer agreement. We had looked at many homes on the internet, but found more value in visiting some of the listings with Jeff. As we continued searching, Jeff e-mailed us a listing of a short sale close to our area and called to see if we wanted to look at it. That evening we put an offer on the house and not long after we had purchased our first home. Jeff helped us save a lot of money, but even more he made the whole experience enjoyable. He organized everything with everyone, never pushed us into a decision, and even helped with some of the small repairs we wanted to make. Thanks Jeff, for everything! Posted By: Rich & Emily Fernandez, Meridian, Idaho
From day one we have loved working with Stewart Realty! We are first-time home-buyers and didn't know much about buying a new home. Jeff helped us every step of the way. He made buying a new home easy and understandable! We knew the housing market was on the rise and we wanted to not only find a house that was perfect for us but we wanted to get into a home FAST before housing prices went up. We started looking for homes in the middle of February and here we are in our home just one month later! Jeff was always so easy to get ahold of and always got back to us quickly if he wasn't currently available. Sometimes we would call him in the morning about a house and he would have us walking through it that afternoon! Jeff even referred us to an AMAZING lender that helped us with the loan process better and quicker than we would have even hoped. When it came time for us to buy our house, Jeff let us know everything we should do before closing. During our final walk-through of the house before closing, Jeff noticed some inconsistencies in the paint on the wall that only someone with experienced in wall-painting would notice. He pointed it out to us and made sure our seller had it fixed before we moved in. We probably never would have even noticed but Jeff wanted to make sure the house was COMPLETELY up to par before we bought it. Jeff came highly recommended to us and we are so glad we took the recommendation! We will pass forward the recommendation to anyone and everyone we know looking to buy or sell a home in the area. He will be the first call we make if ever we decide to sell our beautiful new home. Thanks Jeff! Posted by: Erica Walker, Meridian, Idaho
A good friend of ours told us about Jeff & his true greatness for the business, we found it all to be true with the exceptional service Jeff gave! Jeff has helped us buy several properties over the past years. unlike many realtors Jeff goes far beyond his normal duties as a realtor broker, most of all his integrity, honesty & business knowledge impressed us the most. It's hard to find a realtor who makes you feel as you are their "only" client. He is always there when you need him as well as very informative in the real estate market. In the past we have used many good realtors but when we were lucky enough to find Jeff we knew we hit the jackpot! He listens to his clients, their needs & is never pushy and there to accommodate "you" in every step of the process, always a pleasure to work with! We hope Jeff stays in the business for a good long time so our friends & family have the opportunity to work with him when they need a home, such as many already have. Thanks Jeff for making all our experiences great ones!! Looking forward to working with you for all our future real estate "needs", a true professional and always exceeding our expectations!!

My husband I have nothing but positive praise for the service Jeff has provided us over the past year. We began looking for a house in the Boise area via the internet a few years ago. Jeff kept us updated on what was available in the area and was always available to answer questions we had. Jeff was very patient, knowledgeable, and we especially appreciated his no-pressure approach. He was very supportive and wanted us to find exactly what we were looking for in a property. He is very committed to his clients and spent a lot of time with us and made us feel we had great priority in his daily schedule. He always followed through on every thing he said he would do. He was always accessible, thorough, and competent. He is well informed in all aspects of the business and has many great contacts that truly helped us purchase our house under a tight timeline. Thanks, Jeff. We truly love our new house! Posted By: Ron and Devra Milligan, Meridian, Idaho
I have bought many homes as a married woman with spouse to help in my adult life. This last year I found myself as a single parent trying to buy a home of my own. It was a very scary prospect. I got online and found Jeff quite by accident. I am very thankful that I did. He found me financing and a home I love. He was very patient and kind. He also found me a great home repair specialist that has helped me with improvements at a reasonable cost. I would recommend him to anyone thinking about purchasing a home. He was helpful, dedicated and even went to closing with me to help me to understand what I was signing. He checked on me thru out the process and even after closing called to see if I was still satisfied with his service. I am very thankful that I had him looking out for me. Posted By: Debby McClellan, Kuna, Idaho
I just wanted to let everyone know that if you are seriously looking for a honest and very caring for your needs kind of Realtor you have found him. Jeff is very knowledgeable in many areas when it comes to buying your home. Jeff is always there when you need him and will fit you in his busy schedule as he did many times for me. Thank you Jeff you are an awesome Realtor and I will call upon you again and will refer you to anyone interested in buying real estate. Thanks!!!!! Posted By: Tonya Modugno, Nampa, Idaho
Jeff at Stewart Realty was great to work with. I had a very limited budget and he helped me find a wonderful home in my price range. I have never before worked with a Realtor that was so thoughtful and persistent to find just the right home for me. I will be forever grateful and would recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate.

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Jeff answer an online inquiry when we began house hunting. He contacted us immediately and put together a list of houses that were in our price range. Our house hunting experience ended up spanning about six months because we tried a couple of short sales. Through it all he was on top of everything, very accommodating with our schedules, and very open about the properties we were seeing. He was quick to point out potential problems with the properties, and very honest with our questions. If he didn't know something, he told us. He never showed us something that was above our budget and never pressured us. I loved how personal our experience with Stewart Realty was. We have just moved into our first home and we love it! It was a long journey, but it was nice to have somebody so experienced that we could trust to make that journey with us. We recommend Jeff to all our friends, and if we ever need more property in the future, Jeff will be the first person we call. Posted by: Janese and Carlos Botelho, Meridian, Idaho
I want to take this opportunity, having just recently completed the process of closing and taking possession of the home we bought with Mr. Stewart's able assistance, to provide you with the benefit of my experiences with Jeff Stewart and his company, Stewart Realty LLC. I have bought and sold half a dozen homes over the course of twenty five years of homeownership (in every geographical region of the United States, with the exception the southwest) and I have dealt with a number of real estate agents, not all of whom left me with a feeling that I had received the very best customer service that could have been afforded me. Let me tell you about my experiences with Stewart Realty LLC.
Jeff actually started "working" for me and my family about a year ago (i.e., late summer of 2012), when it became clear to us that a permanent relocation to Boise, Idaho was imminent. I stumbled upon the Stewart Realty LLC website quite by chance, and found it immediately convenient for our purpose at that time, which was to "scope out" the areas of commercial and residential development in and about the Boise locale in the interest of establishing what familiarity we could, prior to our first visit (in the flesh) to the Treasure Valley (where Boise and its satellite communities are located). Honestly, I expected to be inundated with phone calls and electronic messages geared toward hurrying my wife and me into making a decision to purchase a home RIGHT NOW! To my surprise and great relief, that didn't happen. Instead, Mr. Stewart contacted me and sought only to find out what it was we needed and wanted from a Realtor at that time. He provided us with some straightforward information, unaccompanied by any of the high pressure real estate tactics we, consumers, have grown to expect and to dislike. To be specific, he set up a method of communicating information to us regarding the kinds of properties we were mostly interested in purchasing and in the areas and price ranges which we considered to be suitable) at that time. I was very impressed that Jeff never tried to persuade us to purchase a home in any particular area (or community or development, et al), but he did make every effort to assist us with detailed information based on the questions we had for him and not based on his own agenda for "what he wanted us to do". My wife and I never felt that Jeff was trying to talk us into doing or considering something we had not initially expressed interest in. For several months, he provided us with automated updates pertaining to the Boise area real estate market, including trend information, new listings (again, within our pre-determined parameter limits). From time to time, Jeff did inform us of the trends occurring in the Boise real estate market, and he did tell us that interest rates and home prices were steadily on the rise. He encouraged us to consider these facts, as they were indices of market conditions that were trending unfavorably from the perspective of the would-be home buyer. Given the potential magnitude of impact on our availability of choice (and other considerations), we regarded his urgency of communications related to the subject as timely and pertinent, and not as a means to apply pressure on us to come to our decision sooner, rather than later.
When we decided to rent an apartment upon arrival in Boise, Jeff contacted some people he knew and got us set up in an apartment complex close to the BSU campus and the Boise downtown area. This worked well for us, as we were able to establish a month-by-month rental situation with one of the nicer apartment complexes in the Parkcenter area. Jeff did not gain from the arrangement at all, other than to have secured our loyalty as his customers more solidly than had already been established.
Jeff had already been providing his assistance to us for about 8 or 9 months before we ever began the process of viewing homes with interest in purchasing a new residence of our own. Jeff's knowledge of contractor methodologies, construction materials, industry insider information (i.e., things that would be known to those who design and build new homes and major renovations) soon showed itself to be an enormous advantage to our favor, as he is well versed in the good and the bad, and the pros and cons of construction materials and techniques used in roofing, siding, plumbing, additions and renovations (et al). Jeff applied his knowledge time and again during our home search project, and was able to provide information about the properties we were investigating well beyond what might be expected from the typical real estate agent. Jeff made it very clear to us that his commitment to our customer satisfaction was of much greater concern to him that simply pocketing a commission the quickest and easiest way possible.
Jeff is a real estate industry professional who demonstrates tremendous personal integrity and strong, respectable character. He is both meticulous and honest, and doesn't hesitate to voice his thoughts, favorable or unfavorable, having to do with any aspect of a house and property under consideration for a possible offer to purchase. Today, with our real estate search over and our new home now our legal charge, we have no recommendations to feed back to Jeff regarding how he might improve his methods. We have never before been guided so carefully and with such great concern for our overall happiness and satisfaction as that which we enjoyed as clients of Jeff Stewart and his company, Stewart Realty, LLC. We endorse Mr. Stewart to you and encourage you to work with an agent who will show genuine concern for you and your family and your real estate needs. Jeff is the best of the best, as far as we are concerned.

My review gives five stars for Jeff as an excellent realtor. I have been in my house for two weeks now and can honestly say I have never been more thankful for his dedication and wisdom. I am a military member who was looking for a "starter home" that was mostly move-in ready. Jeff helped me find a number of homes I was interested in and didn't pressure me to buy a house that was out of my price range, nor did he encourage me to lower my standards. We found my house on my birthday, and it was a house that was listed much higher. He negotiated a very fair price so I could get into a house with 1000 more SQ. FT. than most homes in the same price range. The process (even with complications related to the seller) lasted just under one month! This man is trust worthy, and I would be proud to consider him both a friend and a mentor. To add to his courteous responses he also knew who to go to for the best insurance rates and quotes on local home repair, although the house was already very move-in ready. He was located a couple hours away and this didn't complicate the process at all. If I could, I would use, and may still use him in all future real estate transactions.

Jeff Stewart of Stewart Realty had our interests in mind from start to finish. His patience in the beginning of us deciding to sell our home was the main reason we started using his service and expertise. He was able to walk us through options and decisions that left no surprises. His estimate of our homes worth came out to the dollar compared with the official inspection later down the road. He kept in close contact with us through the entire process, updating us with the milestones we were meeting along the way. We appreciate having people on our side that are educated and experienced in their field to help guide us through such life changing events as selling a home. Posted By: Monica Schiess, Kuna, ID
My sister-in-law had asked Jeff to evaluate her house and mine as well since I wanted to sell mine. When I got his estimate of what the house was worth, I was extremely happy. As it turned out, the estimate was very close to what the house sold for. At all times he and Sheri, were ready and able to answer my questions. They were very considerate of my circumstances. I was not very experienced in selling a house and I had moved out of state to live with my daughter. So, I was nervous to say the least, since this was a big portion of my husband's estate. The weekly updates and the feedback comments made things a little easier. I would not hesitate to recommend Stewart Reality to anyone. They are knowledgeable, helpful, and considerate. Posted By: Judy Young, Valparaiso, IN
Stewart Realty would be our first call if we were to buy or sell real estate again in this area. They met all our needs in a timely manner and exceeded expectations repeatedly. Their commitment to their motto of Service-Integrity-Results is self evident. Beyond just the business aspects they where also very pleasant and genuine people to work with.

In today’s computer age it was nice to have a Realtor with an MLS link that we could access. We were able to explore the Treasure Valley market from the comfort of our home at any time of the day or night. We were able to eliminate areas and houses without having to waste anyone’s time. Once we found an area or home we were interested in we were able to add it to a watch list or schedule a home tour with Jeff. Once under contract Jeff kept us informed throughout the process and made sure we didn’t miss any important dates. I would recommend Stewart Realty to anyone who is in the market to purchase a new or existing home. Posted By: Dan & Karen Booth, Meridian, ID

My review may sound more like an advertisement, but that is how I feel about my experience with Jeff Stewart and Stewart Realty. From the very beginning, Jeff was professional, relational and non-confrontational. What I mean by non-confrontational is that Jeff was not pushy as some realtors can be. He clearly expressed his thoughts based upon his years of experience yet did not make us feel uncomfortable when he did express them. Jeff remained patient with us through a drawn out short sale process which, to our benefit, ended in our purchasing a different home. Jeff was always kind and courteous and respectful of our thoughts and wants, and he made my family feel like he was a part of it. I have already referred folks to him and will continue to do so. Thank you, Jeff, for making our home buying experience one to remember with smiles. Posted By: Chris Ellison, Middleton, ID
Today we closed on our new house and although we have a lot to do for this move, I had to take a minute to thank Jeff Stewart and his team for their efforts toward making this happen for us and for our organization. My wife and I run a nonprofit youth program that requires acreage. When we found Jeff, he was both encouraging and honest about the challenges we would have finding what we needed in our price range. His team was behind us from day one and both his guidance and experience helped us through many hurdles. This whole process has been so special to us that we are almost sad it is all over. We truly believe the people we worked with had a HUGE hand in making this possible for us and for our organization. We highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy Realtor who will represent you and your best interests. Posted By: Mike & Tanya Ambler, Nampa, ID
Jeff is a great Realtor! He provided us with lots of information on potential homes for weeks because we had some very specific needs and had to cull through a lot of properties. When we found the right house, we knew it right away. The process was fast and easy. We LOVED the e-sign capabilities. It worked very well with our busy schedules. We would use Jeff again, without a doubt, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good, honest, hardworking Realtor.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding performance in helping me find and purchase my new home. After many months of searching I had seen countless homes. When I finally found the house I decided I wanted to buy, you had made the process very smooth and quick for me. I was impressed with how well the offer went. You were able to not only put an acceptable offer on the house but was also able to include the beautiful refrigerator and blinds as well. You had kept me informed every step of the process and was able to work around my work schedule which was also very helpful. You were very supportive, helpful, always available, and was receptive to questions and concerns that I had. I felt positive that I was well represented in all transactions. Thank you for your knowledge and expertise. Posted By: Troy T. Prock, Nampa, ID
I recently worked with Jeff and Sheri in our move from North Carolina to Idaho. The professionalism and courtesy they both gave to me was top notch from start to finish! I highly recommend their services! With moving such a long distance and worrying about if things would get lost or delayed in paperwork and closing he kept us up to date on the process without delay. Looking back on what I know now it would have saved me a lot of worrying. Great people who treat their clients like they want to be treated. Posted By: Joshua Lemmons, Meridian, ID
Stewart Realty has been such a huge help to us. In 2011 they helped my husband and I find a house and buy it. They helped all along the way. Jeff was honest with us with every question we had, and really listened to what we wanted. He showed us houses that weren't at the highest of our budget but in the middle. He helped us find the best starter home for us that we could start a family, and in an area that we wanted and was close to family. Three and half years later (2015) Jeff came to the rescue again in helping us sell our home. Stewart Realty gave us information about everything we needed to do to get our house ready for a sell. They kept us in the loop through the entire process of the sell. And made closing very easy for us after we had moved out of state. We have recommended Stewart Realty to many of our friends and family. They are THE BEST!!!! Posted By: Spencer & Michele McIntyre, Marsing, ID
My husband and I were looking to make a move to the Boise area and while staying in a hotel we saw some information about Jeff, at Stewart Reality. We contacted Jeff and he asked us some questions about what we were looking for. He met with us the next day and not only showed us houses but also different areas that we might be interested in. He and his team were in contact with us providing information long distance and always answering any questions that we might have. With Jeff's expertise and knowledge we are happy to say we have made the move and are in our new home. We would highly recommend Stewart Reality. It was an absolute pleasure!

Our experience with Stewart Realty was exceptional! Jeff was quick to always respond to our emails, texts or phone calls. If he wasn't available Sheri would step up to the plate and make sure a communication was never missed. We felt like Jeff wasn't just about showing us homes but he took the time to look at the home, and make sure that all was in order. He is very knowledgeable in his field of work and always helped us feel informed and educated. Both Sheri and Jeff are very good to work with and they always greeted us with a smile. We were what you could consider "picky" clients and it took us a long time to finally find the home that felt right for us. Stewart Realty stuck with us til the end and never murmured a complaint about us being so picky. Jeff even helped us move out of our old home and into our new one. We will recommend everyone we know that is in need of selling or buying a home to Stewart Realty. We were well taken care of. Thank you! Posted By: Isaak and Jackie Stafford, Boise, ID
We worked with Sheri to purchase a house in Meridian in February/March 2015. She did an excellent job throughout the process. We found her via the Better Business Bureau and she called us back within 5 minutes of submitting an inquiry to Stewart Realty through their website. Even though she had only a few days’ notice before we arrived for our house hunting trip, she worked with us to get a list of houses we were interested in and had everything scheduled in the timeframe we needed. Even better, she adored our 6 month old son who came along, and her positive attitude in having a (sometimes fussy) baby with us reduced our stress level and helped us focus on the task at hand. She likewise showed great patience as I went through my very lengthy 2nd showing checklist for our final 3 candidates, and walked us through the offer/contract process in an organized and informative fashion. She gave us good insights during the negotiation process and gave us input into our decision making process in a respectful manner. Sheri is friendly, responsive, and flexible in her approach and is by the far the best real estate agent we've ever worked with. We were very satisfied with her service and will recommend her to others. Posted By: Kendall & Christine Smith, Meridian, ID
I can highly recommend Jeff Stewart as a professional that one should consider listing their home with. I listed my cousin's home with Jeff as she has ALS. He sold the home within less than 3 months and sold it for the price that satisfied us. He even negotiated more money with the buyers. I am from St. Louis and all transactions went smoothly. He also has a sensitivity about him that one feels as though he understands your situation which was greatly appreciated by myself. Thank you Jeff! Many kudos to you and your company!

Jeff Stewart and his staff were extremely helpful and VERY patient with me in my Eagle house seeking journey. We met over the internet around 2011 and over the next 4 years [of me looking at homes and actually flying up twice to meet with him], he was gracious in keeping me updated and responding to my emails in a prompt, personal and efficient manner. Letting someone decide without pressure is a wonderful asset for a real estate broker to possess in my opinion. That quality helped my wellbeing and decision to use only him to buy my house in Idaho; getting my job settled and selling my Laguna Beach home took time. I am grateful for his and Sheri’s help [and input] in all my dealings with contractors and the various utility companies --- not to mention him being at the house as needed when I was stuck in California due to my work schedule. I would recommend Jeff and his team any day. Thank you Jeff and Sheri for all you have done. Posted By: Kelli Humphrey, Eagle, ID
I highly recommend Jeff as your realtor! He first sold our house quick for more than we'd hoped, giving us great advice on how best to go about it. And then he found the perfect house for us to purchase too. Jeff was able to move quick so that we didn't have to move into an apartment in between either, which was great. He has great contacts to help make the whole process smooth and easy, like carpet cleaners and handyman services. The whole experience could not have gone better - thanks Jeff!

Jeff and Sheri helped us in finding a home for our daughter. We didn't hesitate a minute to utilize Stewart Realty's services again. It was as fast and easy as when Jeff helped us find our home just a few short years ago. Their professionalism, market knowledge and work environment tools were evident in the array of homes and location we were able to see online. By providing us this information we were able to scroll the homes and select those of interest to us, thus saving both of us time in a physical inspection of any properties of interest. We will never hesitate to use their services again or to recommend them to any of our friends. Posted By: Randy Miller, Nampa, ID
Jeff Stewart is not only an awesome realtor/broker, but he is also a wonderful neighbor. After my cousin passed away in March, 2016, my Aunt and I were faced with many challenges. One of those challenges was selling her (my cousin’s) home in Meridian. My husband and I knew that Jeff would be the person who would understand and be sensitive to the situation. His patience, professionalism, and empathy were remarkable while we were faced with so many decisions. Everything came together on May 25th for the house to go on the market. Jeff gave us ideas about any needed work to be done to the house or the yard and gave us referrals for a Handy Man, Carpet Cleaners, etc. Each step of the process was communicated by personal meetings, emails, texts, and/or phone calls from either Jeff or Sheri. Both, Sheri and Jeff, are to be commended for their responsibilities and communication with clients. July 8th we closed on the sale of the home! Definitely a blessing; as closing papers were signed that day! With Gratitude to Stewart Realty Staff- Jeff and Sheri. Posted by:Steve and Deb McCain & Kay Mattefs, Meridian, ID
My review of Sheri in a few words would be "unbelievably awesome". Sheri has held my hand for almost 3 years while I looked at property and prepared to sell my home and buy near Boise. Through your website she constantly sent me lists of homes meeting my search criteria. Sheri countless times traveled at her own expense to scout homes and photograph and video them for me, sometimes at considerable distance from her home and your office. Sheri's knowledge of her market is second to none. When I was ready to make an offer, I relied on her instincts and judgment completely. Step by step, she navigated me through the offer and contract process, ultimately ending in a great deal for me. Along the way, I discovered and made a great friend. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sheri and Stewart Realty to anyone considering buying in the Boise area. I know they would be in the same great hands that I was.

As first time home-buyers, my wife and I could not be happier that we found Stewart Realty. We are fairly picky, and we even completely changed the type of property we were looking for multiple times mid-way through the process. I’m sure that’s a little frustrating for a realtor. But through it all, Jeff was nothing but patient, helpful and very honest. He gave many helpful suggestions along the way (did I mention that we were first-time home-buyers? … we knew nothing about the process) and genuinely had our best interest at heart. We will be contacting Jeff again the next time we need to buy or sell real estate in the Meridian area. Posted by: Tyler McKinnon, Meridian, ID
