Stephen & Mattie Schlegel
Porches & Pastures was created out of a dream that Eric and Stephanie Fine had to provide a unique real estate experience for buyers and sellers.
Stephanie became a REALTOR® in 2007 and was instantly hooked on experiencing the special moment of home ownership with her clients over and over again! Eric is a real life “Okie from Muskogee” who grew up on a family farm. He obtained his real estate license in 2012 and began focusing on rural land. The couple lives on the north side of Lake Eufaula with their two, four-legged children, Chassi and Scooter!
"We believe in creating an experience for our clients that goes beyond a wish list of amenities and property features and focuses on a desired lifestyle. Whether you are buying or selling a primary residence, second home at the lake or rural land; we believe slowing down to focus on the type of lifestyle you crave delivers the very best outcome! This unique philosophy, combined with our experience and knowledge about the market, makes us a strong partner in all aspects of real estate."

Growing up on a family ranch instilled in me a love of land that ultimately led to developing my specialty as a REALTOR® in rural property. My grandfather was a dairy farmer West of Muskogee, Oklahoma until the late 80’s, before raising beef cattle. That ranch remains in the family today and continues to grow. Whether you are looking to buy or sell land for agricultural, hunting or personal use, I can be a resource to you! My background and expertise allow me to simplify the process, making it less stressful for both buyers and sellers. I am available during evenings and weekends. Feel free to call me on my cell: 918.680.2673 or email me with questions.

Whether you are purchasing your primary residence or dream vacation home, buying a home comes with a feeling of accomplishment and security! I feel so grateful to be experiencing this with my clients on a daily basis, since 2007. My unique approach to simplifying the process has earned me a solid sales record and certainty that I can take the stress and confusion out of buying and selling property. I love getting to know what motivates and inspires my clients to buy or sell. So often, it is the pursuit of a specific lifestyle toward making memories, relaxing and slowing down that drives purchasing; and acknowledging this makes the entire process more enjoyable and even fun!

Connecting with people on a personal level has always come naturally to me and I’ve gravitated toward professions that allow me to meet interesting people. I've spent many years as a hair stylist, helping people look and feel their very best. I’m especially excited to work with Porches & Pastures as connection and communication is central to the mission. I grew up in Blackwell, OK and have lived in Eufaula for the last 10 years. I often joke that our home is nothing short of a zoo with 2 dogs, 3 bunnies, a bearded dragon, a mini pig and a beta fish! When I’m not working with clients, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially my husband, Will and our three children, Blake, Shayleigh and Aceton. I also have a passion for retail therapy, attending my kids’ sporting events and crafting! Giving back to the community we call home is so important to me and I have a special place in my heart for the fire department and Santa’s Soldiers. I’d love to be your REALTOR®! Please feel free to call me on my cell: 918.618.2137 or email me.
Faithful and loyal to the core, I’m a woman of my word who loves a good boat ride, bonfire and volunteering with the Special Olympics! I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the Porches & Pastures Real Estate team. For the past several years, I have served in ministry alongside my husband and best friend, Nathan. I feel at home on the stage, leading worship and helping others reach their full potential. I’m always ready for an adventure and have become especially passionate about how I invest my time. Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and am a proud mother to our 4 year old son, Oakley. I’d love to help you buy or sell your home, so please feel free to give me a call at: 918.650.5303 or email me.

My love for this great country led me to a career in the United States Navy where I spent more than ten years. With two deployments to the Persian Gulf and one to Afghanistan, I am so grateful for the opportunity to put down roots in this community. I also spent fifteen years in concrete sales and loved getting to personally know my clients. Originally from Missouri, I’m a big fan of Kansas City Chiefs Football! I also love to hunt, fish and hike with my wife, Lacy. We have a daughter, Alyssa, two sons, Hunter and Jordan as well as two German Shepards, Buddy and Bailey. I’d love to work with you to buy or sell your property. Give me a call at: 816.810.7541 or email me.
You could say that a love for agriculture and education runs in my family; one of my four brothers and I both followed in our father’s footsteps into the field. I’ve been an Agriculture Education Instructor and FFA Advisor for 9 years and currently teach at Eufaula Public Schools, in addition to working as a REALTOR® with Porches & Pastures Real Estate. My spare time is often spent enjoying the great outdoors; I love to hunt and fish! I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching sports and am currently training for a half marathon. I am a member of Northfork Baptist Church where I enjoy volunteering with the youth ministry. I’ve lived in the Eufaula area for three years and am excited to join the P&P team. Being meticulous and detail-oriented serves me well in real estate and I value working with a company, committed to finding new ways to market for our clients and stay on the cutting edge of the real estate industry.

Calling Lake Eufaula “home” is a dream come true for a lake lover like myself! After a 20-year career in higher education, 10 more in real estate development and personal property sales and management in OKC and Stillwater, my wife and I are thrilled to return to lake life and the land we love.
Through the years, Lake Eufaula has served as the backdrop for so many of my treasured memories; including witnessing the dedication of the Eufaula Dam in 1964, learning to ski at Brooken Cove in the 70’s and countless camping and fishing trips.
My wife and I have settled near Eufaula's Standing Rock landmark and love that we are able to pass down our love of the lake to the next generations. Sharing the lake experience with our children and grandchildren is one of our great joys. If you’re ready to buy or sell real estate in Eastern Oklahoma, I’d love to work with you. Please feel free to call or text me at: 918.429.4327 or email me.
