After 30+ years of living in my home, I decided it was time to down-size.  As for anyone living in the same place for that length of time, it was a bittersweet decision because although it was exciting to think of a new “start”,  it was difficult to leave a house filled with so many memories .  Lisa Stover was the perfect realtor to assist with this transition.  She understood the emotions involved and was a wise council as to how to get things ready for listing.  She established a calendar of what to do when and checked in often to see how things were progressing.  When work was needed to spiff something up, she had contacts who were professional and did exceptional work.  She accurately priced the house, staged it perfectly and because of her expertise, the house sold in record time. She also helped me find a new home, never pushing me over my price point or desired location. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Lisa again, although I hope another move is not my near future. Once every 30 years is enough for me!

Lisa,

Well, what a July and August we all had!  After such a successful sale of our home in Walnut Ridge and the purchase of our new home in Brook Crossing Estates, I thought it was important to thank you and the Stover Team for making it all happen so quickly and professionally!  From the comprehensive market analysis of our home, to the aggressive sales plan, the suggestions, negotiations and the closing date preparations, you took the stress out of selling our old home and moving to our new location.  We always knew that selling our home was your priority, but helping and guiding us in finding the best possible match for our needs in a new home made our task so much easier.

In Naperville, we had many choices when it came to selecting a real estate agent for the selling and buying of our homes.  Lisa, we are so glad to have worked with you and your team!  During the process over the last few months, we grew to appreciate your competence as a realtor, your experience in working within this market and your patience in working with us!

Best wishes for your continued success,

– Tom and Marsha Siegel


I would like to acknowledge my satisfaction and express what a sincere pleasure it was to work with Lisa Stover for the sale of my home.  Lisa provided me with accurate and timely information and kept me informed of the details, both the good and the bad so I knew exactly where we were at from marketing, to price negotiations through the closing.   This was anything but an “easy” sale, Lisa worked hard and professionally, putting in long hours and creating a solution to satisfy my, the buyers and the lender’s needs.  When I felt like giving up, Lisa dedicated herself to find a way to keep me engaged and make this sale happen.  She has an optimistic approach to her work and I now believe, that approach and Lisa’s hard work is the only reason my house sold.  I would highly recommend Lisa Stover as a highly professional, diligent and knowledgeable real estate agent.

My house sold in 2 days for full asking price!! I loved working with Lisa Stover. Lisa was there through every step of the home listing process. I engaged her early as a resource while I was updating the home prior to listing.  Lisa took me through other listings in the neighborhood and helped me understand the benefits and pricing for home features.  Most importantly Lisa gave me feedback as to what buyers really want from a home.  I could not be happier with our home sale with Lisa.  I know it is because of the home condition, pricing and marketing that got my home sold so fast.  Lisa was excellent during the negotiations really listening and providing needed information.  I would work with Lisa & the Stover team again for any of my real estate needs.  I could not be happier with the results.

I knew I was in trouble when I had to sell my duplex and found that there were 21 units for sale within a quarter mile of me. The smartest thing I did, as it turns out, was pick Lisa Stover as my realtor and do everything she told me to do. My place got sold in about 4 months while the units around me lingered on the market. Lisa knows how to sell a house. I’m thankful she knew what I needed to work on and what I could let go, what I needed to spend money on and where I could save a whole lot. I give her my highest recommendation.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent representation in the sale of our Naperville home. From the 1st day we met to discuss offering our home for sale, you were honest and straightforward with your approach and “plan of action” to sell our home at a fair-to-market price with the highest possible selling price as the goal. During the nearly 6 months of our home on sale you continued to keep us informed on the overall market and how it related to our home, in the constantly changing mix. You kept us encouraged by reminding us that the right buyer would eventually appear and fall in love with our home and make us that fair offer to buy. And when we did receive that buyers’ offer, you handled all of the details necessary with professionalism right up to the closing of the sales transaction. We want to thank you again for a excellent job representing us in the sale of our home.

When we were looking to purchase a home in Naperville, we were not very familiar with the area and were not quite sure what we were looking for.  Lisa is very knowledgeable about the immediate area we were looking in as well as surrounding areas, and really helped to point us in the right direction.  We looked at many, many homes, and Lisa was very patient with us.  She helped to educate us on different communities, as well as the home buying process.  Thanks to Lisa, we found a wonderful home that we will be happy in for years to come.

Having the personal touch of a realtor  who took all your “perfect house” requirements seriously made our first time home-buying experience very pleasant. Lisa listened to us regarding what our likes and dislikes were and made each venture into a possible house worthwhile. I’ve heard horror stories of people wasting lots of time being dragged to houses that weren’t even close to what they desired by a realtor who obviously didn’t have a “clue” about the clients. Lisa Stover not only found great possibilities but our “perfect” home! She absolutely lit up with a great big smile as we approached the house and said “you’re going to love this one”. She was absolutely correct and it was the one we purchased. She was a constant help during the purchasing and closing process and even gave us excellent resources for various professionals. Lisa KNOWS real estate and adds her own genuine, creative touch to the whole process. Once again “Thanks Lisa ” for guiding us on the road to the “perfect  home!”

I had the distinct privilege of meeting and working with Lisa on more than one occasion for home purchases. Lisa is an incredibly personable, knowledgeable realtor with an uncanny ability to professionally, yet personally, assist and guide a prospective buyer to the correct, informed, and desired purchased. While she insists that her actions and duties are part of her job, she clearly goes above and beyond for the customer. I find Lisa to be a very committed and dedicated individual with the endurance to assist with the very demanding task of buying a new home. Lisa is a highly motivated individual with an innate ability to interact with her customers; a most admirable trait.

When acts of exemplary performance are witnessed, they should never go unrecognized!”

I am a plumber, and have done some work for Lisa Stover in the past. I was in a market for a house closer to my new business. I know a lot of realtors but I chose Lisa. I have seen houses in the past that other realtors could not sell, and Lisa did! Lisa has a flare for design and a feel for the customer. Lisa Stover was my person.  I could not have been happier. She was always there when I needed her, and very knowledgeable. Lisa addressed even the smallest detail and always kept in touch with me. If had to reach her, she was very accessible. End result.  The closing of my new house went like a breeze, which helped me to do other stuff, like running my business. Thank you Lisa!

I am so grateful I met Lisa Stover several years back.  I was immediately impressed by her knowledge about the market and also drawn to her genuineness (she is a very likable and a sincere person).   I was so impressed with Lisa, that I held on to her info for 2 years, until we were ready to move, knowing that SHE was the Realtor I wanted to work with!!!   Working with her was a true pleasure, at times I felt we were her only clients (even though I knew she had many other listings) ..she just gives you that kind of attention! Lisa not only marketed our home very well, but she took the time to get to know us well enough that she could make suggestions on listings (for the home we would be purchasing) that surprisingly were so in line with our taste.  Lisa was extremely easy and pleasant to work with and is not only EXTREMELY,  hardworking but is truly a class act.  I would recommend Lisa Stover to my closest friends and family!  I know if they pursued my recommendation they would be in the very best hands!

We had a great experience working with Lisa as our realtor.  We moved from out of state, so I was worried about how everything would fall into place, but Lisa was very helpful in working with us to make the move.  We appreciated how she was always available by email or phone and always got back to us right away.  We planned to come look at houses for only one weekend and she worked with us before hand in narrowing down our choices.  We did find a house in one weekend and she talked to an inspector and lawyer to help us move the process along quickly.  Lisa was knowledgeable about the houses we looked at and gave us good information to help us make our decision.

In the third decade of my law practice, I discovered Lisa Stover. I would soon find her to be the most impressive real estate agent I had ever worked with. My client, who was also a family member, was confined to a nursing home and had some very demanding ideas about who would represent her. She needed to sell her condominium in a particularly troubled development. During a down market, offers were confusing and often disappointing, but Lisa never lost her optimism. She frequently visited my Aunt to review contracts and discuss strategy. Lisa made herself available to meet with repairmen and inspectors at the property, sometimes researching needed specialty parts requiring replacement – and even supplying them. While I struggled in negotiations with the buyer’s lawyer, Lisa battled with the homeowner’s association, who initially refused to consent to the sale. Lisa constantly called me to ask what she could do to get this closing going. I’m convinced that the closing would not have happened without her persistence and dedication to our client. While many lawyers might have completed my part of the work involved, I’m not sure many agents would have gone the extra mile(s) Lisa did to get the job done. My Aunt was well served with Lisa’s extra attention and I have recommended her ever since.

Lisa Stover is a true real estate professional. We were on a really short timeline and Lisa asked us a series of questions to get a feel for what we were looking for in our next home. Lisa wouldn’t stop until we found the perfect home. Lisa kept saying to us “I don’t want to find you a home you can live with, my job is to find you the home you love. I have never found a Realtor I liked until I met Lisa. She follows through and anticipated our needs before we had to ask. Excellent service and to boot, a wonderful person who is fun to be with. Bill and Jennifer Gray.

Even though I have realtors in my family, I chose to work with Lisa Stover once again because of her phenomenal service. Lisa is a true professional and incredibly knowledgeable. She advises sellers on remaining competitive in the current market and helps buyers get the most for their money. Lisa makes sense of all the real estate laws and procedures, always looking out for her clients. I highly recommend Lisa Stover to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Lisa Stover.  We had the pleasure of working with Lisa to find our first home.  While it had the potential of being a stressful process, Lisa made it so enjoyable for us.  It was immediately apparent that her professionalism, knowledge, and sincerity were unmatched by others.  Lisa knew what we were looking for in our home. While we saw many houses, we can remember a specific evening with Lisa.  Yet again, it was a nice house, but it wasn’t “the one.” You will know it when you find it.  We will just keep looking.”  Her encouragement reassured us that we would find our perfect home.  With Lisa’s patience, we did find our home.  Throughout the process, she always made us feel like more than clients to her.  Lisa seemed to feel the joy and excitement along with us. We truly believe this is what made our home buying process the positive experience that it was.  We would highly recommend Lisa to anyone.

– Jim and Katie


I have worked with several realtors over the years and Lisa, by far, is the best. She is very knowledgeable on the comparable properties, which saved us plenty. She is also very responsive. If I needed to contact her, she would get right back to me. Most of all, she cares. We bought a condo which needed some remodeling and she wanted to come back and see the finished product. She cares about you long after the sale is complete. This is someone who wants to make a relationship not just a sale. I would definitely recommend Lisa Stover.

Lisa Stover and her crew were the perfect choice when my dad decided to sell his home (after 50 years) and move to assisted living. I knew we would need a lot of help since I live 250 miles from my father and Lisa made it easy for both of us. Lisa took the time to get to know both me and my dad and then she got to work! She skillfully handled the clean out, moving, set up my dad’s apartment and helped us get the house updated for a buyer in two weeks’ time. Lisa’s expertise as a Realtor impressed us as she worked diligently to market my dad’s house and kept us updated on all showings and feedback. When we found our buyer, Lisa followed through with her attention to details that helped us secure an early closing. I definitely recommend Lisa and her crew!

While we were hesitant to move my mother from Pennsylvania, Lisa and her staff made the transition so easy. With her vast experience, Lisa was able to organize the move, install, the furniture, and did a fabulous job of decorating my mother’s new residence. Many have remarked that Lisa’s display of pictures makes her room look like an art gallery. The movers, as well, were very accommodating and even offered to deliver extra furniture to a local storage unit. Lisa and her associates receive our highest recommendation.
