Stephanie Sunshine | Real Estate Realtor® / Agent


Stephanie Sunshine launched her career in private real estate acquisition and development in the Flathead Valley in the late 90s and earned her real estate license in 2003, joining the National Parks Realty team in 2011.   

Originally from the San Francisco Bay area, Stephanie is a graduate of the University of Arizona where she earned her B.A. in Anthropology. After graduating, Stephanie traveled the globe and lived extensively in New Zealand and Japan. Her adventurous spirit and love for the great outdoors eventually brought her to Whitefish, where she settled in 1993.

Stephanie possesses expert insight into the Flathead Valley lifestyle and local culture, specific neighborhoods, demographics, as well as a keen understanding of the construction quality of homes, both new and old. Having built and sold custom homes, Stephanie thoroughly understands permitting, construction, and legal processes and can help clients navigate these at both the local and state levels.

Stephanie’s role in your real estate sale or purchase does not revolve solely around sealing the deal. She is committed to providing her clients the necessary tools to make educated decisions: from understanding the vicissitudes of market trends, to identifying the property that best suits their needs and visions, to finding qualified contractors. Whether a buyer’s or seller’s agent, Stephanie is realistic and transparent, she works with integrity, compelling energy, wisdom, and superb negotiation skills. 

In her free time, Stephanie can be seen skiing, biking, kayaking, kite surfing, or hiking on the beautiful trails around Whitefish with her husband, John, and their two dogs. 

“I invite you to share your real estate goals. Together, we can make your dreams a reality.”

Super experience having Stephanie working for us on our new home! In-depth knowledge of the community helped us get everything setup without any problems, and helped us out in many other ways besides the home purchase.

I was very impressed with Stephanie. This was the first time my wife and I had ever bought a home. Stephanie was very patient with all our questions and she guided us through the process. She was organized, detail-oriented, and was always working so hard on our behalf. We already have and will continue to recommend her to people we know looking for a realtor.

Prompt, efficient, diligent, and responsive. If this is what you are looking for in a realtor, then seek out Stephanie. She alerted me when she found a prospective purchase, sought out the information I needed, prepared a successful offer and helped us get through closing.

~ dineybgood

Stephanie made our first time home buying experience pleasant and exciting rather than scary and overwhelming. She's personable and easy to work with. Her communication and ability to get responses back to us quickly each time we had a question helped us to feel confident in her and in our purchase. She was quick with text, phone and email responses which was key for me as a buyer with lots of questions. We found the perfect house and will without a doubt use Stephanie for any future real estate needs we may have.
