With years of experience working in real estate law, as well as her time working for the Commonwealth, Stephanie Everett understands how the Registry of Deeds can be a more valuable resource to current and aspiring homeowners.
Her grandparents, who lived in the segregated South, moved their family to Boston and worked hard to strive for homeownership. Stephanie was raised in a time when the wealth of owning a home became a legacy passed on from one generation to the next. But that kind of family security is in jeopardy because the resources to help homeowners keep and maintain that wealth have become harder to find and more complicated to understand.
This is where Stephanie sees the Registry of Deeds as being a resource to help.
She brings the most qualified experience and compelling vision for what the future of this office can do in service to the residents of Suffolk County, helping them preserve the wealth of home ownership and pass it on to the next generation.
Stephanie has spent her whole career fighting for fairness and equal opportunity; whether advocating for funding and programming of youth violence prevention, or women rights and job equality in non-profit organizations and state government. She managed the youth violence prevention programs at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council. She served as Deputy Chief of Staff for State Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz, specializing in public safety, jobs policy, and community development and small businesses. Stephanie was part of the team that passed strong foreclosure legislation, protecting tenants and improving communication with homeowners.
Stephanie has firsthand, personal experience with the impact properly managed government programs can have at opening doors and changing lives.
Stephanie was born and raised in Mattapan, where she currently resides with her husband and children. She was a participant in the METCO program and graduated from the Boston Public Schools. Stephanie holds a B.A. from Northeastern University and a law degree from Suffolk University.
