Stew Hizey

    Stew Hizey

    I grew up in a family business and learned about hard work at an early age. This experience gave me the tenacity and endurance to overcome obstacles and help others in need. My clients discover these strengths when buying or selling their property with me because I will leave no stone unturned.

    I am a lifelong resident of the Central Coast and feel truly blessed to live here. I attended local schools, bought my first home, and raised my children here. This experience gives me a unique perspective and familiarity with this beautifully diverse area.

    Why Sell with Me?
    1. I am local. A native of the Central Coast - I live, work and play here.
    2. I have the best buyers marketing system to bring you more buyers than anyone.
    3. I give you a FREE Pre-Listing Inspection of you property.
    4. I develop a Comparative Market Analysis to determine the best list price.

    6. I place your listing on social media, MLS sites, our C21Home website and about 100 more real estate related sites.
    7. I negotiate with buyers on your behave to get the highest and best offer.

    I have been in sales for 23 years, and I love what I do. I define success by helping people find the property that is the best for them and ensuring that the buying or selling process is handled with the utmost integrity. I enjoy challenges and exert the same amount of energy into finding the perfect starter home as I do a villa on the bluffs.

    I received awards every year during my five years in real estate--including the Quality Service Award. If I was not a Realtor, I would love to travel and write about my experiences. This would include food from around the world. I want to spend two weeks in Italy and gain 10 pounds tasting all the amazing food.

    My Client Testimonials

    Stew Hizey was amazing throughout. He was always available when we had questions and always made time for us. He made everything a great experience for us and we greatly appreciate all the work he put in for us. ~ Kevin Jost and Janelle Wertz
    Stew is Nipomo born and bred so he knows the area well. Friendly and easy to work with. ~ Philip Chiang , California
    Stew is absolute great! Stew has assisted me with six deals. He is very easy to work with and knowledge of the area and in his job. Ive had to work with other agents in this area before and there ways seems to be problems with getting the paperwork done properly. Never the case when Stew is involved. Always respectful always aware of the progress. Best agent in the area! ~ Abdul Kadir Nipomo
    It took us over two years to find the home we were looking for. Stew Hizey was always very patient with us and never gave up on us. He was always very friendly and helpful during the process. ~ Dana Stalker, Arroyo Grande
    We decided that Stew was our realtor after talking to him at an open house. His knowledge of the area, laid back demeanor, and that fact that he made us feel that he would help us find the right house no matter how long it took were the determining factors. He was very professional, personable, and whenever we saw a house we wanted to look at Stew quickly made arrangements that for our schedule. We highly recommend Stew Hizey as a realtor to everyone. ~ Justin & Hallee
    Stewart was very helpful during a time which was unprecedented. He went through many ups and downs with me during the sale of my home and I value his friendship as well as his professionalism. Robyn Antonucci ~ Robyn Antonucci / Ventura
    When I initially purchased my home in 2019, I reached out to Stew Hizey based on a postcard my friend in Nipomo received in the mail. Because of the high level of area expertise/knowledge and professionalism from that initial purchase, I knew he would be the only realtor I would consider for the sale of my home in 2020. Selling a home during the COVID pandemic with it's many restrictions could have been a daunting and difficult challenge. Stew Hizey, and the Century 21 Nipomo office, allowed the entire process to be safer, simpler and less interruptive than I had imagined it would be. Although I had already moved out of the area a few weeks prior to close of escrow, Stew guided me through the entire process easily. With all the details and anxiety involved with moving across country, knowing that Stew was managing the sale of my home gave me peace of mind to focus on relocating. He kept me updated on inspection results, changes to our timeframes, and arranged for me to finalize all documents remotely. I chose Stew as my agent, again, because he is the best on the Central Coast. Thank you Stew & Kim Hizey! ~ Sue Coron Odom, Santa Maria
    I have known Stew Hizey for over 40 years. He is knowledgable and experienced and a man of integrity. We knew Stew was someone we could trust to put our interests first and to guide us through our home purchase with knowledge and wisdom. He went above and beyond to make our purchase a smooth and easy experience. He was available and prompt. His friendly nature is always a pleasure. We highly recommend Stew Hizey for your next home purchase! ~ Julie Rogers
    Stew was honest putting our needs above his own. ~ Jennifer steele. Oceano,ca
    Stew was great, hes very knowledgeable, professional. Stew kept me posted, gave me daily updates, walked me through and answered all my questions, Stew was always available for any questions or concerns that I had And always had the answer. It was truly a pleasure working with Stew. ~ Tracy McCoy Nipomo
    We are so glad that Stew was our realtor! He was friendly, helpful, and approachable. He very patiently answered all of our questions and was always readily available. We really appreciated how hard he worked to help us find our first home. We would highly recommend Stew for all of your real estate needs! ~ Drew and Kaileigh Gaffney, Arroyo Grande, CA
    Stew stays connected and continually communicates until sale is recorded. ~ Abdul, Nipomo
    We especially appreciated Stew's willingness to help us in off-business hours as we had a very short time frame to work with. He was able to listen to us and quickly understand the types of properties that would be potentially suitable. Stew is not pushy, not arrogant, not harried. Once we settled on a particular house, Stew was on top of all of the details all the way through the escrow, which was especially important to us as we were out of the area for most of the escrow period. In other words, we liked his low-key style coupled with his effectiveness. ~ Dave Miller, Nipomo
    We met Stew Hizey when he told us he had a possible buyer for our property. It was a pleasure working with Stew because he is experienced and knowledgeable. We needed all of that in our transaction. Ours was a very problematic escrow transaction involving difficult circumstances, a difficult property, and difficult personalities. Stew Hizey always maintained a professional demeanor which had a calming effect on all the unexpected setbacks and nerves of all the parties involved. If it wasn't for Stew Hizey, this sale would never have happened. We wholeheartedly appreciate the enormous effort and skill Stew brought. We'll never forget the personal care he gave us everyday along the way. We'll always be thankful. Thank you, Stew. ~ Valerie and Len Beuth
    We met stew hizey at an open house. We stopped in just because we liked the house, we were not ready to purchase a house but we were a couple months away. He asked what was on our wish list of a house, and consistently send emails of what we wanted. Stew was not forward or pushy, which is nice, considering a lot of realtors we met were that way. He made us feel like we were important and not just after a commission. In nipomo the inventory is low but he assured us to be patient and the perfect home will come up for sale. We got into escrow of a house and the appraisal was far apart from the purchase price and stew did everything in his power to negotiate it down(the seller was being unreasonable and backed out of the deal 3 times) so it fell out of escrow. Once again he told us to be patient, and he was right we found our dream house! If not for stew hizey we probably would have settled for something we did not want, but he consistently told us to wait and we are so glad we did. If we ever purchase another house stew is our guy, and we would reccomend him to our friends and family. ~ Angela Vine Nipomo CA
    Stew worked above and beyond what we could have expected. He was always very positive and put our minds at ease ~ Bob and Becky Boggess. Santa Maria
    Stew Hizey was a tremendous resource when selling and purchasing our homes. I'm personally grateful for Stew's kindness, attention and direction during this experience. He's now a part of our family! Thank you Stew!! ~ Teresa, Santa Maria CA
    Stew Hizey is extremely capable and knowledgeable in the RE field. I used him to sell and purchase homes for me. I needed the transactions to happen simultaneously and he made them happen. He handled getting all the repairs on the house for the sale to happen. I feel this was going above and beyond. Thank you Stew. He was always available and never left me hanging. He is also just a real nice guy and I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again myself. ~ Mary H. Arroyo Grande, CA
    Stew Hizey did an excellent job selling our house. He provided lots of exposure for the house and we were able to sell and close quickly. I would recommend Stew to anyone looking to sell or buy property in the area. ~ DeLynne Taylor, Nipomo
    Stew Hizey was helpful, available and pleasant to work with. He was patient and didn't attempt to pressure us in making our decision which was very important to us. He helped make our home buying experience as stress free as possible. ~ Michelle Engle, Arroyo Grande
    We originally contacted Stew as he was the listing agent on a different home we were interested in. We appreciated that Stew requested what we were looking for in a property and diligently emailed us listings he thought would be of interest. This is where we learned of the listing for the home we purchased. Stew made the process very easy and was a real pleasure to work with. We will recommend Stew and Century 21 to friends and family. Thank you! Stew was great! ~ Linda Alexander, Visalia CA
    Stew Hizey preformed with excellence, professionalism and respect; throughout our long sales process. He made us feel comfortable, we felt assured that the end result would be in our interest. His knowledge of the neighborhood and the changing market was invaluable. ~ Dennis & Bo Prescott, 2406 Ridgemark Dr., Santa Maria, CA 93455
    Stew was the most professional and knowledgeable realtor that we have ever worked with. He almost immediately found the perfect home for us and quickly made an offer on it. The entire process was pleasant and quick thanks to Stew. We will recommend him to co-workers, friends, and family. Thanks again Stew! ~ Scott and Noelle Schultz,Grover Beach
    Stew is fast acting, which any seller wants. He is knowledgeable, patient and courteous, as he was with us when we originally put our house on the market for a week and then took it off. When we needed to move forward a couple of months later, Stew moved with rapid fire speed and sold our house, receiving competing offers within 5 days. The sale of our house was a complicated transaction due to a domino chain of houses having to be sold on the same day. Stew painstakingly checked out the various loan agreements on the chain and talked to the various brokers in order that we could have assurance it would all happen as planned and it was OK to accept the purchase offer. He also communicated with the broker for the house we were purchasing in a different area and coordinated every issue flawlessly. His attention to detail is wonderful. There were no hitches in a complicated situation. We recommend Stew highly as a realtor with integrity and great ability. ~ Maribel Wilkins
    Stew Hizey is AWESOMEEEEE! He went way beyond the guidelines are for agents and we know because I use to sell real estate and my husband who had the most dealings with Stew was a real estate appraiser and he is still a broker and is past president of the Board of Realtors in Mammoth Lakes as well as having owned his own office in the same city of Mammoth. So we know the business and Stew was outstanding. Not only did he handle the sale but he made wise suggestions and helped physically repair the house. Stew helped find and coordinate other things that needed to be down. Stew is a great, great guy and whoever is lucky enough to work with him is truly blessed. Stew handled all the ins and outs for us and made it so easy. Thank you Stew! Stew was communicating with us daily on normal real estate paper work but also with the various people we needed to handle the preparation of the house. He found us a great guy in Santa Maria, that was a super help and we are now using him to help us upgrade our house. Thanks again Stew. The few times we had to drop off paperwork they were very professional and polite in all our communications both in person and on the phone I am so grateful for all that Stew did to help us. We had just moved to San Luis Obispo in January and bought a house in March. Our move in date was April 28 and on April 21 my 94 yr old aunt died. It was chaos for me trying to move a second time in 4 months, plus dealing with my aunts death. I have been paying her bills, coordinating her care and I am her sole trustee so her death meant I had a mountain of work to deal with. Meeting Stew and having him step in and start working with us on all the things that needed to be done to sell her house was heaven sent. Thank you, Thank you! We more than others, know how much you went over and above because we have been in the real estate business for 40 years. You are a gem among stones! ~ Jan Nelson, San Luis Obispo
    Did a great job ~ Jerry Barr Surprise AZ
    Awesome local real estate agent. 5 stars - Bill Bookout via Facebook Review
