Bentwood Realty Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I am so glad I decided to use Stevie to sell my first home in Waco and to help me find my second in Austin.

She was always happy to help answer any of my questions... as a new home owner, I had a lot!! Her personal attention to detail and her commitment to drive back and forth from Waco to Austin on numerous occasions was much appreciated. Stevie was dedicated, not to selling us a house, but to helping my husband and me find the perfect new home for our growing family - even though we had a long wish list with conflicting priorities. Stevie's experience enabled her to give us everything we BOTH wanted in our new home. We could not be happier with our end decision that was made possible with Stevie's guidance. That said - I highly recommend Stevie to buy and/or sell your home. Speaking from personal experience, you will not be disappointed!

From day one of working with Cody Powell of Bentwood Realty, he was a Godsend and we felt like we were in great hands.

Cody was very professional and went above and beyond to help us get our house sold. Cody made us feel comfortable in every step of the process and showed us excellent client service! He helped us get the house ready for showings, advised us of showings, helping us through the negotiations process, and was there for us all the way through closing, He answered our calls and texts, no matter what time of day. We could not be happier to have worked with Cody and definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!

Jeanne Giangacomo

Poet has helped me navigate several transactions.

From the sale of a $400,000 home, the purchase of $50000-100000 rental properties or the purchase/sale of farm/ranch land, Poet is always on top of the process and has lots of contacts to pull your rear out of the fire if plumbing bursts on the day of closing

David Schleicher

There can be no better realtor in the Waco area than Stevie!

After retiring for the second time with plans to either move to Waco or Fort Worth to be nearer to our children, my husband and I looked at homes in both areas. Stevie helped us look at everything in the Waco area and enabled us to make a wise decision for us. Her knowledge of the market and her helpfulness and consideration of our time frame made our experience so pleasant. We found a wonderful new home in Fort Worth because of her enabling us to understand what we could and couldn't buy in Waco.

I honestly could not have bought a house without Poet.

She was amazing!! I attempted using another realtor prior to her, I was very discouraged and overwhelmed with the whole process, until Poet saved the day. She helped me through the entire process, Since meeting he I have purchased two homes with her and sold one in less that a month on market.

Laura Robles

Stevie helped us find a house that for our exact specifications that was never on the market.

As a native Wacoan, she knows the area well and has a great network of buyers and sellers. She responds quickly and is always available to talk about issues. I recommend her to anyone moving to Waco.

Stevie helped us find our dream home.

My husband and I were very particular on what we wanted and even considered building because we were so picky. Stevie was always professional and patient and made it her personal goal to find a home that would best suit our family. Our priority was settling in a place that our one year old twins would enjoy. A neighborhood that provides safety, nice amenities and a top education system. After viewing several houses Stevie brought us to "the one". It happened to be the plan we were looking to build but with nicer upgrades and a wonderful community for the boys. I recommend that you look to Stevie Sheffield if you want a realtor who truly dedicates herself to find the perfect home for you and your family.

Cristi P.

Thank you Stevie Pena Sheffield with Bentwood Realty for going above and beyond in helping us sell our family home.

Even though it was difficult to see it go, your help - from strategizing, to staging, to moving, and everything in between - brought amazing results in record time. Can't thank you enough!!! You're amazing!!!

Carla S.

Stevie helped us to find our home.

We were very specific in what we wanted and she never gave up on us finding that perfect home. She took us to as many properties as we wanted. She was also knowledgeable about the area, the schools, the comps in the area. She was very responsive to our needs and we enjoyed working with her so much so that we have recommended her to other family and friends.

Kristi R.

Stevie was wonderful.

She listened to exactly what we were looking for and helped us find it. Helped us negotiate a price below appraised value. And continues to be there for us when ever we have questions. I would recommend Stevie to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Nichole S.

Stevie has extensive experience as a realtor, and she used that experience to sell our house at a top price.

She guided us through a rigorous preparation process to ensure the house was "ready to sell". She also did a thorough comp analysis to determine the true market value of our house. With her extensive network, she got the word out regarding our "open house" just prior to placing the house in MLS. We had excellent traffic at our open house and received a full price offer two days later. Stevie's experience also helped in the negotiation with the buyer's realtor regarding the many details that come up during the process. Stevie was calm and firm in the negotiations and ensured a win-win for all parties. Stevie was on top of all of the details and made sure everything that needed to be addressed was done in a timely manner. We will definitely use her again to buy or sell our next home.

We relocated from Carmel, Indiana to Waco August of 2012.

There are many things that create stress when moving across country with two young girls, but Stevie made sure finding and buying a home was not one of them. She took time to take pictures, look at homes personally and give us honest assessments of what we were seeing online. She stuck with us and patiently addressed every concern until we found the right home. Then she helped us get the right deal. I couldn't recommend her enough.

Melie V.

I would highly recommend working with Poet Colliver.

She was always very responsive and eager to show me new listings. As a first time buyer, she helped guide me through the entire process and always stayed in constant contact. Thank you Poet for helping me find my first home!

Lacy Richardson

Poet was a joy to work with!

She took all measures to get us into the house we were looking for. We are unique clients wanting a very certain design aesthetic which was not on the market! She helped us get our home prior to it being listed

Melissa Arras

I personally used Joseph at Bentwood Realty as my Realtor.

And as a first time buyer I had lots of questions. Joseph made the house hunting and transaction go smooth. Highly recommend him and plan to use him for my future buys πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™‚

I met Stevie for the first time 4 years ago when we wanted to buy a condo for our daughter's use while she was attending graduate school at Baylor.

Stevie was very knowledgeable about the area, showed me different types of property as I was unfamiliar with Waco and Texas. We ended up buying a condo with Stevie's assistance. My daughter is finishing at Baylor and there was no question that we would list the Condo with Stevie. Stevie did an excellent job marketing the condo and it sold quickly. Stevie was on top of all the paperwork; even with an out-of-town seller and buyer it closed on the date it was supposed to. My daughter was also happy with Stevie's services and recommended her to a friend in the graduate program. Stevie also listed and sold that condo. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to do business with.
