About Me

I'm Stephanie Callaghan and I LOVE real estate! It just took me a while (almost 20 years) to figure out that it should be not just my career, but my very own business. I studied Engineering and Business at Virginia Tech and graduated with Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Civil Engineering and a Master's degree in Business Administration. After college, I enjoyed a very successful career in IT consulting where I developed strong negotiation, customer service, analysis, and project management skills. I was good at my job, but I eventually realized I wasn't passionate about it. I have always had an interest in real estate (my mom and grandmother were both in the business) and as my four children were heading into middle school and high school, I decided it was time for a change. It was the best decision!

I honestly love what I do! I am excited every day to help my clients navigate one of the most significant financial decisions of their lives. My goal is to be your trusted Real Estate advisor. I am not a salesperson. Instead, I am your consultant, expert adviser, and guide. I am committed to making your home sale or purchase an enjoyable experience and getting you the best results possible. I promise to always listen, answer your questions, ease your concerns, and expertly handle the entire transaction. I will always be straightforward and accountable, act with integrity, and treat you with respect. When you choose me as your partner, you are not just getting a trusted, respected agent - you are getting a local expert who is passionate about serving our community and those that call it home.

I currently reside in Ashburn with my husband, four children, and dog. When I am not working, you can find me volunteering with our community and high school sports teams or watching one of my kids competing in soccer, swimming, basketball, football, or volleyball. Sometimes you might even find me competing on the soccer field myself!

ABOUT SWEET AIR HOMES
When I was deciding on a name for my business, I thought a lot about what home means to me and the feelings I associated with the different places I have lived. We moved around a lot when I was growing up, but when I was about 12 years old we moved to a new neighborhood called Sweet Air Manor. This was the first place we lived that truly had a neighborhood feel. There were a lot of kids around my age and we were always outside playing wiffle ball, soccer, basketball, and more. We swam, rode bikes, and hung out at a neighbor's half pipe. Some kids went to public school and some went to private school, but we shared a special friendship in the neighborhood.

Everyone has their own reasons and goals for home ownership, and my goal is the help my clients find that special place that gives them the warm and wonderful feelings that I get when I think about growing up in Sweet Air Manor.

Testimonials

“We were looking in Virginia, but then switched to Maryland. The realtor we were using was not licensed in Maryland and she recommended Stephanie. We couldn't have been happier with dealing with Stephanie. Other realtors that we dealt with would want to show us houses that did not meet what we said we were looking for. It's like they didn't take notes on what we wanted. However, Stephanie really listened to what we wanted and only showed us houses that met those specifications. We made an offer on a house that had multiple offers. Our bid was the one accepted because Stephanie worked with us to make our bid the most attractive. Stephanie suggested methods to decrease the time to closure, and other methods that would make our offer the best, while not increasing the cost of the house. These methods proved fruitful, since our bid was accepted and did NOT go above the asking price. Both my wife and I knew that Stephanie was on our side. That's a BIG deal. When we sold our house with another broker, it was clear that our previous broker was NOT on our side. In the bidding process, Stephanie recommended not going up as high as we thought we might need to and offered other things to the seller such as faster closing times (through her knowledge of loaning institutions), with a delayed move out date (which was not an issue for us). This proved to be something the seller wanted more than a few extra dollars. Stephanie lined up the inspector for us and he did a fine job. She also recommended the financial institution that could get a closing date in the time needed by the seller. Our credit union could not close as fast as needed. I think Stephanie's personality also helped, because I could tell that the seller liked dealing with Stephanie too. You want the seller to like dealing with the buyer's realtor. I remember telling Stephanie that my wife seemed like she had a new best friend when talking to Stephanie.”

“Once I met with Stephanie a few years ago it was clear she was the perfect fit for us. Very personable and professional experience from the beginning. She has been a phenomenal agent and advocate and the only one we trust with our teal estate needs. She has helped me with several properties, goes way beyond expectations, and always with great results. This last sale was so incredibly smooth. Stephanie helped us update, prepare, market, and price the home perfectly and we had a contract offer within 24 hours! I would wholeheartedly recommend Stephanie to friends and family (or anyone for that matter). She has my family’s complete trust and confidence in all regards. Gets results, and takes care of and protects her client’s interests. We are eternally grateful. ”

“Stephanie inspired total confidence from the first moment we met at a property she was showing. She truly listened and kept searching even as I was getting a little discouraged by the extreme competition and starting to think I would have to give up. Here comes Stephanie to the rescue because she found the little gem I had been searching for the past two years plus. ”

“Stephanie Callaghan was amazing! She guided me through every step of the process with compassion, integrity, and wisdom. She went above and beyond repeatedly to help me get my home ready to sell, to support me in moving out, and checking on me during the entire process. She made it seem easy and was there to answer any need, big or small. Her bespoke customer service was beyond anything I could have expected or have experienced. Especially during the pandemic, when there were already unique challenges, Stephanie ensured that the entire process was safe, simple, and successful. I didn’t select the office; I chose Stephanie. She could have worked anywhere and she would be the one I’d choose again. She is the only agent I will ever work with or recommend in the future.”

“Stephanie helped me to buy my first home. She was very patient, clear and thorough in explaining me the entire process and answered all of my questions at every step. She gives great advices and is very knowledgeable. She was very quick and responsive in arranging a lot of showings as soon I asked. I got a lot of help for her to narrow down on the kind of home I was looking for, in time.”

“Before we started working with Stephanie, we attempted to identify houses ourselves. Looking back I think that was a waste of our time and emotional grief. When we finally contacted Stephanie, and she helped guide us, everything seemed to be a little clearer, a little more realistic. That was very welcome in our search. Stephanie was always very accessible either for in person showing or online connectivity. We value that greatly. Also important to us is timeliness, we like to move fast, and be on time, and Steph was right there with us. ”
