Homie Highlight: Garrett Stephenson

Title: Listing Agent

Garrett Stephenson is a listing agent in Boise, Idaho. As an agent, Garrett helps his clients sell their homes quickly, and for a great price. In the process, he saves them a lot of money.

Garrett’s Background

Garrett is originally from Takoma Park, Maryland. Before he got into real estate, he was a pitcher in the MLB. Over the course of his seven-year professional baseball career, he played for the Orioles, the Phillies, and the Cardinals. Garrett met his wife Stephanie while attending Rick’s College (now BYU-Idaho), and he has lived in Idaho ever since.

Garrett got into real estate in 2004, at the suggestion of his baseball colleagues.
For most of his real estate career, he was a self-taught builder and developer. He got himself some books, got a loan from the bank, and figured the business out as he worked. Garrett became a licensed agent in 2017.

When you ask Garrett about his time as a pro athlete, he’s very humble about it; in his mind, he’s much more than an athlete. Now, he’s much more than an agent as well. He goes above and beyond to help his clients at Homie. In his spare time, Garrett likes to golf, ski, and spend time with his wife and three sons.

Why Homie?

Garrett discovered Homie when he saw the teal billboards on his way home from a visit to Utah. They piqued his curiosity, so he did some research on the company. He liked what he found. As soon as he saw a job posting in Idaho, he jumped on it.

As a Homie agent, Garrett loves explaining the ins and outs of real estate to his clients. He also likes helping his clients by putting money back into their pockets. He likes to say that, “deals are never about me,” putting his clients at the forefront. He also enjoys the freedom of not working in an office all of the time.

For Garrett, the best thing about working at Homie is the people. According to him, everyone is down-to-earth and kind. He feels that they treat him well and are always willing to help. He fits right in.
