Looking to get music mastered?
A final pair of ears is crucial
A lot of mixing engineers prefer having their work mastered by another person, even when they can do that job themselves. That's because the clarity and perspective that a mastering engineer has upon freshly listening to a mix can be a gamechanger in taking it to its full potential.
Subtle but Crucial
Mastering might seem like too subtle of a process, since it's not as obvious of a task as mixing. Truth is, great sounding mixes can often be completely unprepared for playing in real-world circumstances. Mastering's gentle changes can be the difference between a song getting lost in the middle of a playlist or allowing its sound to sparkle.

If you're wondering what Stem Mastering is, it basically entails sending the master engineer the mix in multiple tracks (stems) instead of a stereo file. I think Stem mastering can be a great option if you want to allow the mastering engineer some creative freedom. That can be an especially good decision if you mix your own material.
