Facts about me (Stefanie):
- I work a lot, but I like it.
- I drink too much coffee.
- I’m from NY, but I spend a lot of time in Whistler, BC, Canada (I married a Canadian. We still like each other a lot).
- I’m fluent in French (spoken), but I don’t write it very well. I am happy to work with French speakers, as long as they can excuse my imperfect grammar and poor written French.
- Running is my other job. I run far. Hundreds of miles through the desert far. (I guess you could say I go the distance).
- Friday afternoon at 4pm is Wine-o-clock in my office. Everyone is welcome. (Yes, I felt it necessary to put that in bold type-face).
Here’s my background:
- Degree from McGill University.
- 14+ years of experience in client services and sales.
- Business Director: extensive experience in Business Management, Account Management, and Client Care in the real estate industry.
- Public speaker: Luxury Real Estate, RE/MAX of Western Canada, NextGENre, RE/MAX Sea to Sky Real Estate. What can I say? I like to talk a lot.
Whoever said “What other people think about you is none of your business,” never ran a business, so here are some thoughts from my favourite people. 🙂
"Stefanie is a remarkable woman and business professional. She is bright, savvy, poised, intelligent, a skilled strategist and a real go getter. She looks beyond the obvious and has an eye for detail. Bundle all of those things together along with her witty personality and it’s a home run all of the way around."
"I have been a real estate agent for more than 15 years and with RE/MAX most of those years. When Stefanie helped RE/MAX Sea to Sky Real Estate, the work place became a new environment. She introduced new systems and followed through by implementing training programs so agents would be comfortable using these systems. Stefanie has helped me personally many times, from a simple (to her) solution of being stumped with an aspect of social media to reorganizing an entire data base. She has helped me streamline my social platform from Twitter to Facebook to LinkedIn. I have seen other agents besides myself become much more confident and familiar with RE/MAX tools and other internet tools. I would not hesitate to hire Stefanie to put her host of Host Managment skills to work!"
"Stef was able to almost instantly target the weak points in my sales process and provide easy-to-follow solutions to avoid those pitfalls. Working with her has been inspirational, and the brainstorming that has come from our sessions was a fantastic and unexpected bonus! My business (and personal motivation) have skyrocketed since we’ve started working together and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any businesses or business person.

"Stefanie has been there a number of times, when I needed advice regarding my business. Many times one is confronted with all the different avenues regarding social media and Stephanie has helped point the way. Empathy, listening, tolerance and many of her traits. She is a great sounding board."
"Stefanie has been amazing in helping me at anytime with technology issues and has helped me set up systems with no questions asked. She has also gone out of her way to introduce myself and others into social media programs and beyond she is awesome."

She does a thorough job of understanding her clients and has no fear of thinking outside the box to bring new dimensions and perspectives to the task at hand. Having shared a stage with her, and watched her in action professionally and personally, I have no reservations about recommending her as an effective Team Leader to coordinate and guide your next strategic move.."
"Stefanie has been an amazing addition to the sales staff at ReMax Sea to Sky.Her cheery and positive personality is key in her motivational work in the offfice, but she also provides ongoing direct help in areas of social media as it applies to sales. Her regular First Tracks sales meetings in the office work because of her sincere, non confrontational approach. If office morale has improved in the office despite the economic challenges from outside, it is primarily through the efforts of Stefanie. She is truly a golden company resource."
"Stefanie of Host Management was instrumental in providing knowledge and direction to get Lighthouse’s online presence up and running. She has an amazing ability to ‘simplify’ the process, thus removing the overwhelm and providing her clients with effective strategy, comprehensive know-how and the a vast array of tools to organize and execute. Whether to set up sales strategies or provide customized team training, she comes with my highest recommendation."
"Stef has been exceptional in helping not only me but our entire office to keep up with technology and the social aspects of selling real estate in today”s marketplace. Always open and smiling with a logical and straightforward solution to any problems I may have. A real pleasure to work with."
"Stefanie has great energy and when combined with her knowledge she engages our realtors in a way that makes them all better salespeople. Her hands on approach with an accountability aspect encourages salespeople to reach and surpass their goals.å"
"I have been selling real estate for 40 years and have had a lot of help along the way in developing my business plan and direction. Since Stefanie Hostetter came to our company and assumed the roll of marketing manager my abilities and new positive attitude have soared. She has worked patiently with myself and other agents in our office to embrace current technology and marketing methods and given all of us a whole new excitement for what we do, cheers to you Stefanie and thanks from this “old veteran”, John McGregor Whistler, BC"
"I am a big admirer of Stefanie. From the moment we met, when she was graduating from McGill, I knew this gal was going places. My company had her fiancée’s condo for sale and Stefanie was amazing! Always obliging, courteous, sense of humour and responsible. I only discovered a couple of years later that she was also very creative, clever and engaging. At many Luxury Real Estate conferences that I attended, she was always available to help us understand the advantages of social networking and her presentations were excellent. Good for you Stefanie! Brian, Tim and I wish you all the best in this endeavour."
"Stefanie has been a shining light in her contributions to my business and our office generally. She is right on the ball with structured sales and marketing processes that help break down what can be complicated tasks into small manageable ones. She is also innovative and creative. Always thinking and open to new ideas to share. We are lucky that she is here working with us and enjoying the Whistler lifestyle."
"Stefanie is always available to assist with my marketing needs, has great ideas, but best of all LISTENS to my needs, and wants and ALWAYS comes up with a great solution!"
