Dear Candi:

Being a first time home seller can be a daunting experience, but in you and your staff’s caring hands we never felt alone in the process of selling our beautiful home in Medina. When little things needed attention you were always there to help us find a solution. In addition, your regular communications help keep our confidence up throughout the process.

Most importantly, you understood the true value of our Michael Sharrat designed home which led us to the right buyers who really could see that value and loved the house.

We can’t thank you enough for all of your guidance and care in making our home sale a very positive experience.

Respectfully Yours,

Jeff A. Martin | Vice President of EPIC® Marketing | CAROLLO ENGINEERS, INC.


Dear Candi,

Nancy and I are very pleased with outstanding effort that you and your team put into the successful sale of our home in Orono, MN.

As you are aware, we had our home listed for over two years with another realty firm that did not yield a single acceptable offer.  In a little over sixty days of listing with your team we had one acceptable offer with another one pending.

Beginning with your marketing plan along with all of the nuances we discussed of how to market and show the home, you executed and did what you committed to do at every step.

The transaction for the sale of our home was certainly complex with numerous ever evolving details, this was further complicated by the fact that we were out of the country, with a seven hour time difference and limited access to phone and email during all of the negotiations and critical points of discussion. However, you made it all work brilliantly.

After our experience with you over the past few months we fully understand how you have won the richly deserved accolades from your company, industry and peers – you are a true professional who excels in the real estate business.

Our thanks for helping us complete the sale of our home and making the experience as effortless as possible.

Best regards,

George and Nancy Danko | Orono



I wanted to write you a quick note to say Thanks!  The Stabeck Group is first rate and you, Scott and Sue were such a pleasure to work with.

Your knowledge of the Lake Minnetonka market helped us price our home to sell and maximize our value.  Other realtors we interviewed wanted us to low ball for a fast sell.  You helped us stage our home and brought in a great photographer - which is critical in today's world of internet marketing. 

All the above you would expect from a good realtor. But, you, Scott and Sue went over and beyond.  Even though we had relocated and were thousands of miles away, you took care of our home like it was your own.  Your follow-up and persistence with other agents was amazing.  You knew when to guide us on offering an agent incentive to get a deal done.  And even when we accepted a contingent offer, you never stopped marketing our home.  When we ended up in a second offer situation, you guys always looked after our best interests and advocated on our behalf. We were in excellent hands!

We've sold and bought many houses.  Candi, Scott and Sue you've been the best realtors we've ever had.  I would recommend the Stabeck Group in a heartbeat and I'm happy to provide a reference through email or phone.


Michael & Paula Drum | Lake MInnetonka


I cannot say enough good things about Candi Stabeck and her team!  My brothers and I lost our parents within one year of each other recently…and the selling of their Lake Minnetonka home (of 60 years) fell on our shoulders.  The difficulty was that none of us live anywhere near the property.  We are in the states of California, Tennessee and Hawaii. I felt quite reassured when I met Candi when my husband and I were at the lake to empty the house.  

My trust in Candi only grew from there as she negotiated the selling of our family home…including the many obstacles along the way.  Having that total trust in her abilities gave me much needed relief and peace of mind. They were timely and professional every step of the way.  Also…I could reach Candi at all times as she would promptly return my calls.

At one point I told her she was the “best realtor in the world”…and meant it!

John and Laurie Marsh | San Diego | Lake Minnetonka

Chris & Kathy Karsten | Chaska


“Scott was great for us and we were first time home buyers. He was professional, responsive, and always available to setup a showing of the various houses we looked at. He walked us through the sale process with ease and always had a good recommendation when we needed an inspector, mortgage person, and more. We’ll be back for our next purchase.”

Richard & Becca Busker

We would highly recommend The Stabeck Group for realty services: very impressed!"

They are highly recommended by us and would welcome any questions you may have about our year's of great experience with them.”

Michael & Carol Simacek | Wayzata & Plymouth


“We’ve worked with the Stabeck Group for the past 15 years selling and buying multiple homes in the west metro. They are wonderful people that we have gotten to know well.

Derek & Kelly Prchal | Eden Prairie & Orono


“As a professional Home Inspector, I have been performing Home Inspections in the twin cities for over 30 years. I have greatly appreciated working with Candi and Scott. They are true industry professionals that place their clients’ best interest as their number one concern. I would highly recommend their service to anyone buying or selling a home.”

Scot Cates | Cates Home Inspections


“We have had the pleasure of working with Scott Stabeck. We have been 30-year residents of Medina and have a large property that has required Scott to understand the many complex elements of the property. Scott has been exemplary in his ability to understand the property and to work with all parties who are involved. He has been invaluable to us!!”

Manny & Elizabeth Villafanna | Medina

Brooks Chandler | Mound | Canvasback Cargo Liners, owner & CEO


“The Stabeck Group is honest, hardworking and dedicated to their clients. We have bought and sold many homes through them. Our last home in Excelsior sold in less than 24 hours with two offers! Highly recommend their expertise!”

Mary Moberg | Chanhassen & Excelsior


“Candi Stabeck is probably the most amazing realtor we ever worked with. She not only was tenacious, supportive and became a good friend in the process--she 'gets' the Wayzata and Lake Minnetonka communities, because she lives in them. We lived in Wayzata for 10 years and when others couldn't sell our unique home--Candi did! But pause for a minute--we live in Edina now and who was there to make that happen for us?--Candi and Scott!”

Jacqueline B. | Wayzata & Edina


“I had Scott help me buy a house, 2 years later I needed to sell it and he was very helpful on every step of the process. If I wanted to learn more, he would happily teach me. He was always available when I had questions or concerns.”

John P. | Minnetrista

"Candi’s update recommendations were spot on and well worth doing. We felt like we were her #1 priority. Our house sold very quickly and for asking price. Candi will be our first choice in the future."

Bob & Lisa | Minnetonka

“Working with Scott, Candi and Sue was a pleasure. We mostly interacted with Scott who was thorough, responsive and hard working. He is always pleasant and upbeat which is helpful with the stress of selling a house. He was also honest and realistic which we really appreciated. The photographer the Stabeck Group used to take the pictures for our listing was excellent and the brochures and listing looked great. We don’t like the process of listing and selling a house, but Scott, Sue and Candi made it as easy as possible.”

Mark & Madeline | Wayzata


 “Just a note of thanks for hosting a public Open House and a Broker Open House on our Lyman property. This is why we enjoy working with you and Scott so much. We doubt there are any other realtors that work this hard for their clients. You’re the best!”

Gregg & Julie Getchell | Greenwood


“We worked with Scott Stabeck to buy our home and would highly recommend him without any hesitation. He is an excellent realtor and an amazing resource. Scott was patient, responsive, and took the time to understand our housing needs and preferences. He was also very understanding and agile when our needs and preferences shifted. During our search, he expertly utilized his extensive network to ensure we got the first look at new houses in a very competitive market. Scott used his knowledge of the west metro to represent us and negotiate on our behalf to get us the best price. If you're looking for a realtor, definitely reach out to Scott.”

Scott & Theresa Seys | Golden Valley


“I have had several real estate dealings with Scott and Candi through the past 20 years. They have always been so helpful and professional in every aspect!! They are always my first call for a top notch realty group. Thanks for all your help Stabecks.”

Mitzi Vanthournout | Mound & Chanhassen


“My husband and I had the privilege of working with Candi and Scott in a twofold transaction of selling and purchasing Lake Minnetonka property. Scott’s exemplary leadership was the key that allowed us to sell our lake place and secure another! At one point in the negotiation process, Scott motivated the seller’s agent to meet with us. This creative conversation allowed us to strategically define the terms of our purchase agreement. The steps defined at this juncture were completely “out of the box”! Scott’s determination coupled with a team effort approach secured our property! Without this concerted effort, we would not be living in this Lake Minnetonka property! Candi and Scott’s stellar representation is among the finest!”

J & N Huisinga | Mound & Minnetrista


“Candi and Scott have been delightful to work with. Scott drove us around for 2 years before we found the perfect house. He was patient, fun to work with and good at pointing out items (often negative) we could have overlooked. We also have our old house listed with them. Candi has been professional, resourceful in networking with brokers and attentive to our concerns. We highly recommend the Stabeck Team!”

Gregg & Julie Getchell | Greenwood


“We used Scott for our search when we relocated to the twin cities. We knew we wanted to be close to Lake Minnetonka and Scott's exceptional expertise and experience in the area was a valuable asset for us in our search. We landed a house we live in a neighborhood that just exceeded our expectations. His extensive contacts and diligent negotiating style ensures that closing was seamless. He negotiated a price that was 7% below appraisal value in addition to getting us $15k of electronics including the home theater. We will use Scott again if we decide to move and would highly recommend to anyone.”

Curtis & Jennifer Sullivan | Deephaven


“Scott did a great job selling my condo and helping me find my dream home. Super easy to work with and was always looking out for me and my interests, very straight forward and no nonsense.”

Josh Karsten | Chaska & Elk River


“Candi did an excellent job getting the house listed and prepared for showing. She always kept us informed every time the house was shown. Once offers came in she help negotiate a fair price and saw the transaction through to completion with expertise. I felt she took a personal interest in our success in selling the house. I highly recommend Candi to be considered for the listing broker on your property.”

Ron Thompson | Lake Minnetonka


“Scott Stabeck went above and beyond with both finding my new house and selling my previous one. He went as far as going to the city and the LMCD to find out if there was anything I needed to know about the property I was purchasing. The unmatched service is the true reason why they are the best realtors in the area. Candi, Scott and their team made the whole process easy and seamless.”

Neil Navickas | Minnetonka & Spring Park


“We had the perfect sales experience. Sold in one weekend; over the list price, no contingencies! Scott made a special trip out to the property on a Sunday to meet with a client, who ended up making the best offer. Scott returns phone calls promptly, and is very helpful throughout the whole process. Sue Rodelius worked with him, and she was also helpful and professional.”

Brian Cornell | Minnetonka


“The Stabecks are the most reputable, professional, and knowledgeable real estate agents we have ever worked with in our 30 plus years of real estate investing.”

Nelson & Susan Odt | Excelsior


“Candi & Scott are a great team! Scott was able to point out so many things in our home tours that I would have missed without him. His advice was so helpful in making a decision. I most appreciate is that I 100% TRUST them!! That means the world in the real estate industry.”

Gigi Jabbour | Minnetonka


“This was the second time listing/purchasing with Scott and Candi. We worked closely with Scott when we were getting our house on the market. He found a buyer for our home in the St Louis Park area before it was even on the market. He continued working hard with his team to find us our new home and found us the perfect house before it was also listed. This team goes above and beyond. Highly recommend both Candi and Scott!” 

A & A Cornell | St. Louis Park & Shorewood


“Scott and Candi provide a high level of customer service to all clients at all price points. I work with Scott on the purchase of my first home ($200K), sale of this home and the purchase of my second home in the mid $300's. The level of professionalism was top notch and i would recommend this team to anyone.”

Pat & Heidi Finn | Mound & Chanhassen


“We were very fortunate to find Scott as we started our search for a new home in the Twin Cities. Since we only had a single day for a house search tour, Scott did a tremendous amount of work in advance learning of our interests and narrowing the search. He quickly captured a strong sense of what/where we were looking and we found our dream home only 3 houses into our visit. Thanks to his experience, we negotiated the deal quickly and fairly. Scott and his team were exceptional through the close as well. Since we live out of state, he helped arrange appraisals, inspections, utility transfers and the closing. Through and through, Scott was awesome to work with and we would recommend him highly.”

Craig Samitt | Golden Valley


“Candi and Scott make a great team. We have bought 2 houses and sold two houses with them (one in 10 days!!) and recommend them highly, from starter houses, to executive homes to hobby farms, their experience runs the gamut. They know the Western Metro better than anyone and do whatever it takes to get you into your dream home. It was very clear to me that Scott and Candi do not just want to sell you any house, they want to find you the perfect house and get you the best deal possible. HIGHLY recommend The Stabeck Group!”

Derek & Kelly Prchal | Eden Prairie & Orono


“Scott was fantastic! As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and concerns, and throughout the process, I felt like Scott had my best interests in mind.”

Austin Seely | St. Louis Park


“When we decided to sell our Greenwood home last May, my husband and I met with four different real estate teams for market assessments. We picked the Stabeck Group. Working with Scott Stabeck and his client services manager Susan, we could not be happier with the process and the result.  Professional, responsive, friendly, and smart, Scott's a terrific guy, and Susan provided impressive support. We closed on the sale of our home four months after listing it, and Scott eased every bump along the way. My husband and I would definitely use the Stabeck Group again and highly recommend their services.” 

Steve & Carol Swanson | Greenwood


“We've used Scott Stabeck for multiple sales/ purchases in the past and have always been very pleased. He knows alot of people and that helps!”

Ken & Kristin Dowell | Excelsior, Chanhassen & Shorewood


“Candi takes special care of her clients. She responds quickly and with the appropriate action. I loved working with her and I wouldn't have had anyone else represent my home.”

Judy Welter | Minnetrista


“Scott was great! Kept me informed and went the extra mile in putting together a complicated closing.”

Mark & Connie Stanley | Shorewood


“Scott was very responsive throughout the entire house hunting process. His knowledge of the area and insight helped us to find the perfect neighborhood. He listened to what we wanted in a house and didn't steer us towards the more expensive houses. During the negotiation his experience helped us get the house for less than I thought we would be able to. I will be recommending Scott to anyone I know who needs an experienced Realtor to buy or sell a home!”

Nicholas & Beth Staab | Minnetonka


“Candi Stabeck and her team at Sotheby’s, including Sue and Scott, were amazing! We needed to sell a house quickly. They accelerated all processes including paperwork, staging and digital marketing so we could hit our target list date. Their expertise was instrumental in facilitating a bidding war that ended up netting us $35,000 over list price! Plus, the entire team was extremely responsive and supportive through closing day. Call Candi and team Stabeck. You’ll be happy you did!”  

Cindy Saunders | Minnetonka


“We couldn't have done it without your tireless effort and optimism!”

Luke & Whitney Jenney | Orono & Plymouth


“I wanted to let you know how much Jill and I appreciated all your time and never ending effort to sell our townhouse in Spring Park, MN.  As hard as it was to sell our summer home you made it as painless as possible.  We were very pleased with the end result. If we ever have a need to purchase or sell property in Minneapolis/St. Paul there is no question in our minds that we would be in contact with you.”

Dom & Jill DiChiria | Spring Park


“Thank you so much for your fantastic representation on both the buying & selling side. You are such a pro and have great instincts & experience.”

Donna Edelstein | Plymouth & Minneapolis


“John & I are so grateful for your efforts in listing our home for sale!  Our experience to date has far exceeded our expectations; you are a top-notch, classy trio and we are very fortunate to have you on our team! The pictures are spectacular!  We were moved to tears watching the photo tour.  Please pass along our sincere 'thank you' to the team of photographers; they are gifted artists!”

John & Suze Muchow | Deephaven


“Sue, first of all thank you so much for all your help. You have truly been outstanding and is a credit to the entire Stabeck group. Besides being such a pleasant person to work with Rory and I are very happy for all the efforts and guidance you have given us.”

Rory & Ane-Grethe Delaney | Orono


 “We'd like to thank you for selling our home.  On a scale of 1 - 10, our experience with you was an 11!  You truly are a "super agent." We have and will continue to recommend you to those we know in need of buying or selling.”

Dorian & Lindsay Thompson | Mound


"Thank you to the entire Stabeck Team for a job well done!  You helped us sell our Wayzata home of 25 years and helped us find our new town home in Medina - both closing on the same day!  In this difficult market we fully expected that we would have to move twice.  You all helped take the stress out of an otherwise overwhelming process. The extra steps you took attending our losing so we could move, your experience in negotiating both the sale and purchases, answering our hundreds of questions, going way beyond what we expected.  We think Sue lives at your office - she was always there and ready to help. You are all so pleasant and professional! Feel free to have anyone call on us for a reference."

Steve & Jeane Franta | Wayzata & Medina


“Thank you for all of your efforts in the sale of the home on Sinclair. You are helping us to enrich our lives. Congratulations on a transaction that was well earned.”

Kamal & Leslie Karam | Mound | Vice President, Benefit Investments, Travelers Insurance | Owner & Attorney, Karam Law


“Thank you so much for all your hard work in selling our home! I sure did love our home and hated to see it go but happy a nice new family has moved in.”

George Rand | Minnetonka


“We just wanted to thank you for everything you and your team did to help us sell our home. It was an emotional roller coaster for us all and you always remembered it wasn’t just a house, we were saying good bye to all the memories! We are very happy a family has moved in and the house is “alive” again. We felt it was such a beautiful ending receiving your gorgeous picture of our house. It is something we will always treasure!! Thank you SO much.”

Patti, Jodi, Terri & Georgia “the Rand sisters” | Minnetonka


“Nicholas and Beth by luck or whatever found the very best realtor we’ve ever worked with over the years. You guided them through the long list of homes with your vast and certain knowledge of builders, schools, areas, virtually everything from soup to nuts. Thank you, Scott, if you ever had more satisfied clients, I’d be surprised! Hopefully you know they will spread the word and if anyone needs to speak to them asking about you – just call ‘em! Thanks again for everything.”

Bob & Diana Staab | Minnetonka


“I needed to take a minute out of our unpacking to let you know what a great job you did for us. In every aspect of the sale of our home in Shorewood you showed competence, foresight, and flexibility. It seemed like every time I thought of something and called you or Sue about it, it had already been done or was in the process of getting done. In addition, you followed up and accomplished every task you said you would do without any reminders, which seems rare in this day and age. I really appreciate all you did to sell our house; you made it all very easy. I hope our paths cross again and many thanks.”

Bill & Susan Sipple | Shorewood


“I ran across an old email exchange and it reminded me of what wonderful service you gave Dick and I when we purchased our home. We have given your name to several people since then - telling them there is no better realtor than you. There isn't a day that goes by that we aren't happy to be here. The other day when Dick and I were both cooking in the kitchen and not running into one another, we again exclaimed on how much about the house pleases us. This is a daily occurrence - no kidding. We just love living here! It really is the perfect house for us. Thanks again for making it happen for us! You are the best.

Dick & Kathie Martin | Shorewood


“January 2010 I called the Stabeck Group to sell my home, although I loved my home, it was time to move forward, to a more affordable and less maintenance home. The media negative feedback made me a little nervous about putting my house on the market, but Scott Stabeck assured me that ‘I will sell your home.’ On February 18, 2010 my home was placed on the market, the closing was on September 15, 2010. Everyone tells me that I was lucky to sell my home in this economy, but it takes more than luck to sell a home. Thank you very much Candi and Scott Stabeck for a job well done. I'm in a happier place now!”

Glinda J. Edmondson | Shorewood | Delta Airlines


“Patience, Perseverance and Productivity are the characteristics that best describe Candi and Scott Stabeck. This terrific team has been our Real Estate experts for 8 years and has orchestrated the listing, sale and purchase of our homes. There has NEVER been a time when we didn’t feel as though we were the most important clients in their impressive group. No question was too mundane and every request was dealt with appropriately. As a rapidly growing group of “empty nesters’ we speak with absolutely certainty that The Stabeck Group is quite simply The Best.”

Idelle & Rolf Bjelland | Tonka Bay


“When Kim and I saw that our old home on Gray’s Bay has dropped to $649,900. We both said ‘Thank God we had Candi & Scott as our RealtorÒ.’ You are the best.”

Neal Manecke & Kim Walter | Crested Butte, Colorado & Minnetonka


“We bumped into Scott purely by chance while looking at a house that he was selling. However, over the phone, he had already taken down our requirements and by the time we came to see the house, he was ready with a list other houses that he thought may be of interest to us. We liked the fact that he was prepared and had short listed places that we ourselves would have shortlisted. Once we decided to use him as an agent, we never wasted any time since every house he showed us was in line with our requirements. The house we ended up buying had just come on the market when Scott brought it to our attention. Through the negotiation process, he was quick, responsive and diligent in pushing us and the other party to come to an agreement that was amicable to both. When we faced a hiccup during the close, he stayed on top of things until the deal got done that evening. Even after the close, he helped us make the transition to the new house by helping with utilities, handymen referrals etc. We would not hesitate to recommend Scott to anyone any day.”  

Raj Balachandran | Minnetonka | Vice President | U.S. Bank – Sr. Portfolio Manager | The Private Client Reserve, Minnetonka


“Thank you to all of you for your attention and encouragement throughout the process of selling our home. Your positive attitudes and expressions of experience provided the reassurance we needed to persevere in this difficult market.”

John & Sue Quest | Minnetonka Beach


“Over the years we have found Candi and Scott to be an invaluable resource through several real estate transactions. Their knowledge of the real-estate business and staff support has been unprecedented and has guided us through not only the financial aspects of these transactions but through the emotional ones as well. Their commitment to their clients is what has brought us back time and time again.”

Dr. Andrew & "Gingie" Doroschak | Minnetonka


“When we got married in 2005, we each owned a house and wanted to consolidate into one existing home that would be ‘ours.’ We asked The Stabeck Group to help us find a suitable property. Admittedly it was hard for us to decide between our wants and needs; we even thought we would build a house at one point. Both Candi and Scott stuck with us and were attentive throughout our on-again, off-again search. Finally, in 2010, we put it all together and purchased an existing home. The Stabeck Group sold one of our homes too. (They had also helped one of us buy and sell homes in 1999.) Candi carefully guided us through appropriate pricing to buy and sell, and we always felt she had our best interests in mind. Her diligence was particularly key during the final walk-through of the property we were about to purchase. The property wasn’t in optimal shape, and she was determined to ‘make it right.’ Within hours she had negotiated the installation of new carpet before our movers arrived the next day. We are forever grateful to everyone at The Stabeck Group – Candi, Scott and Sue – for their patience and personal service. We highly recommend them!”

Eric Bloedel & Monica Westerlund | Deephaven | President, Westerlund Communications Inc.


“Larry & I want to thank you for everything you both did to help us find a very special place to live on ‘the lake.’ We are so excited to move to the area and the neighborhood! Please stop anytime to say ‘Hi.’ Once again, thank you for everything you did to help make our dreams come true!”

Larry & Debbie Vorpahl | Minnetonka Beach | Group Vice President of Consumer Product Sales of Hormel Foods


“We highly recommend Candi and Scott Stabeck to anyone needing an experienced, dedicated team to effectively market their home. We made the decision to put our home on the market because we were retiring and wanted to move to a warmer climate.  We interviewed three top realtors in our market area and price range.  We chose Candi and Scott because their process was the right "partnership" for us in this difficult economy.   We worked together to ensure our home was properly staged and priced competitively.  They used a professional photographer to create high quality images of the home for presentation on the Internet and in printed marketing materials.  They also catered a luncheon in our home to ensure other realtors were personally familiar with our home. The results speak volumes.  We accepted an offer within three weeks of placing our house on the market and we’re quite satisfied with the price.  In fact, it was more than the other realtors suggested as our initial asking price. Again, we would and have since highly recommended Candi and Scott Stabeck.”

Steven & Beth Casotti | Deephaven


“You were great! We want to thank the entire team for the professional way you handled the listing and sale of our home. Starting with the advice you gave us on proper pricing and the exposure you gave the property with your marketing plan. Any questions or issues were taken care of immediately and that was very much appreciated – Sue was terrific in that area. The negotiations with the buyer relative to price and inspection issues were handled, we felt, with our best interest in mind which made for a smooth process. We couldn’t have been happier. Thank you very much.”

Jim & Ann Donicht | Deephaven


“The Stabeck Group delivers an unwavering level of professionalism, comfort, strength, and clarity throughout the home transition from beginning to end.”

Charles & Stacey Mehr | Chanhassen


“I've had the pleasure I working with Scott directly on the purchase of my house and also indirectly when Stacy bought her home. Scott made it a great experience not only with his market knowledge and willingness to go over and above, but also with his pressure free approach. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone in the market and will definitely use him again for my next purchase.”

Bob Wilcox | Orono


"After real estate investing for a number of years, I recently worked with Scott Stabeck because I wanted to invest in a property in the Lake Minnetonka area.  It was great to work with him and his team for a number of reasons. First, he knows everything about the area, he grew up in the area, spends time on the lake and nearby, and he loves it. Second, he is easy to talk to and work with; it was like working with a good friend. Lastly, and most importantly in terms of me recommending him to others, he does a lot of little extra things that other agents don't do. He and his mother didn't reach their level of success by luck or circumstance, they are flat out better than other agents out there. It's a higher level of service, and not enough agents out there know how to provide for their clients at that level. I am now a broker myself, but continue to recommend Scott for the Lake area, because he does it better than anyone else with whom I've worked."

“Candi & Scott were what we would call the "Ideal Agents" to work with.  Ideal because they made us feel like we were #1 on their list; were available; kept us informed and up-to-date; knew the market (our market) very well; have outstanding reputations in the marketplace; were thorough, specific kind, understanding, and real with us; and were ‘worthy of our trust.’ Of all the real estate agents in the Twin City Marketplace, Candi & Scott Stabeck rank #1 with us and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for Professional & Caring RealtorsÒ.”
