Get to know Steffy Hristova

I am an Arizona Realtor specializing in East Valley (Tempe, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa) and Central Phoenix areas. I offer specialized real estate services across several categories: single family homes, condos and multiplexes, mixed use (live/work, residential + office/retail/restaurant).

I listen, understand and add insight to the decision-making of my clients.
I really enjoy finding out what is most important for my Buyer-clients, and guiding them through the many available options. With my Seller clients, I enjoy preparing the home for sale, presenting it in the best light to the largest audience, and achieving the best price.
My specialty is finding you a home close to where you work thus shortening your commute time - so that you can spend more time with your family, with your hobbies and passions, in your garden.
Sometimes the shortest commute is from the second floor to the first - these are the mixed use properties, also called live/work spaces.


In other cases, your home will be a short walk, or a short drive from your work. I have the tools to structure an efficient search for you. Through my access to various residential and commercial databases, I can help you find a home close to your work, or a commercial space, close to your home.

I have extensive knowledge of communities in Tempe, Downtown Phoenix, Chandler, Scottsdale, Mesa, and and will work tirelessly on your behalf to make your next home buying or home selling experience a pleasant and successful one.

Testimonials for Steffy Hristova

  • Guillermo U.

    My name is Guillermo Ulloa and I moved from the Bay Area, CA approximately 3 years ago. My Bay Area's Realtor Mark Shaw referred Steffy Hristova for my Real Estate needs. I contacted Mrs. Hristova and she connected me with a lender for a mortgage loan approval. Mrs. Steffy Hristova took her time to learn my wife's and my own likes and dislikes in reference of the house we were wishing to acquire. She showed us a few properties and finally we decided to look into a brand new house to buy; she contacted some builders with an excellent reputation and we found the house of our dream. With Steffy's assistance, the process of buying the house was an experience any house buyer would love to have. I definitely recommend Mrs. Steffy Hristova as the best Realtor in the entire Phoenix Area.

  • Mike Thomas

    Mike Thomas reviewed Steffy Hristova Arizona Realtor on Facebook — 5 star; January 16

    Steffy was our realtor for both a home sale and a new home purchase this past summer. Very happy with her professionalism, her attention to detail, her availability, and her guidance and suggestions throughout the process. Top notch, a good choice to represent you.

  • Gerald L.

    "I have worked with Steffy on more than 14 transactions (purchases and leases) in the course of the last 7 years. She is an honest, considerate and supportive person, capable to see and understand things from another person's perspective. She understands the economics of a projects, she knows Tempe's multi-family and single family market, and the nuances of what it makes a purchase to be a profitable investment. She has great range of skills, from understanding the big picture to meticulous management of all transaction details. I am happy to recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with multi-family or single family portfolio

  • Rev. Berg

    Steffy has assisted me to buy more than one investment property. She possesses all the great talents an investor need and the key is that she is willing and very available when needed. I would recommend her to anybody who would like to do the same.

  • Sarah Malzewski

    Steffy helped us find the home with the floor plan we had wanted for years. We found out the home was a short sale which I knew very little about. She was very patient in explaining it and very upfront and honest about how the process could go. It was an extremely long and drawn out process (7 months) with the uncertainty if we would even end up with the house. There were issues that came up she was even uncertain about but she went out of her way to find the answers and navigate the complexity of the sale. I would highly recommend Steffy if you're looking for an agent who will do whatever it takes to find the right home for you.

  • Ryan O Wright

    Steffy was very attentive in finding the right house I was looking for. She setup search criteria that would automatically notify me when there was a match. She helped me with the various steps of buying a house. She even recommended a lender which I was very satisfied with as well. She was very responsive in that she kept me up to date with everything that need to get done. Fortunately, my transaction went smoothly, however, Steffy would advise me on what to do if the need to negotiate was required. Steffy along with the lender accompanied during closing. My overall experience with Steffy was excellent!

  • Kevin K.

    Steffy was very knowledgeable and helpful in selling our condo. I really appreciated her professionalism and responsiveness. She always got back to me when I sent her emails or phone messages, usually within minutes. She kept us involved and informed on every step of the process. I really enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her as a realtor.

  • Renee Andre - Buyer

    When we choose to buy a house using our VA benefits, we choose to work with Steffy because she understood the process and was very patient with us. This was our first experience buying a home, but Steffy made the journey stress-free all the way! When we started looking for homes, we were all over the map- literally! From North Phoenix to Tempe, Steffy found homes for us that meet our criteria and was more than willing to drive us all over the valley for showings. As we debated which area to settle on, we had some specific needs for the home we would eventually buy, and we were set on a price-point we were not willing to negotiate. Steffy never pressured us to go over our chosen price-point, and always had plenty of listings to show us that met our family's needs. We have a busy schedule, and Steffy worked around that, and was even available for short notice appointments. She returned calls promptly, and carefully answered all our questions. We found Steffy to be a friendly and knowledgeable agent and we had confidence in her throughout the entire process. This personalized care is why the home buying process was actually enjoyable for us. In the end our family got a house that exceeded our expectations and fit our price point. We are very happy and would ( and will) recommend Steffy to anyone buying a home.

  • EnzaG

    Steffy was knowledgeable and respectful of our needs. It was truly amazing and surprising how quickly our home sold.

  • J.W. Nicklaus - Buyer

    For most of us buying a house is the largest purchase we will ever make so it's imperative to have a true buyer's advocate on your side when the moment arrives.
    Steffy knew I wasn't going to bring a pot of gold to the proceedings, she knew I was a minnow in an ocean of potential clients--not only did she work with me she helped me to avoid pitfalls along the way and made sure I remained engaged and aware of market conditions as I searched. Frankly, she never gave up on me even when I had on myself.
    Steffy is a genuine professional. Where other realtors had let me down Steffy took the time to understand my concerns and respected my fiscal boundaries. If you want to find yourself a realtor then you've got a lot of choices--but if you want a true buyer's advocate and someone who will not only work for but with you, then do yourself a favor and give Steffy Hristova a call.
