Tim has taken care of the sale of my last three houses. His hard work with the incredible marketing he does and knowledge
of what it takes to sell a home if first rate. Tim is professional and goes the extra mile to get your house sold.
Without Tim, we wouldn’t have been able to buy exactly the home we wanted in our dream neighborhood. Tim utilized his local knowledge and market savvy to craft a competitive offer the first day our home went on the market. We were competing with multiple offers, but Tim was able to get a counter-offer in our hands within 24 hours. Tim helped us deal with multiple challenges throughout escrow, kept the deal from going off the rails more than once, all while helping us close in 30 days. I have complete confidence in Tim’s ability to successfully represent his clients, manage the challenges that inevitably arise every real estate transaction and, ultimately, close the deal that matters.
As a home buyer, seller and investor I’ve dealt with many agents over the years. Not one of them remotely compares with Tim Smith. The experience of selling two properties within 90 days turned out to be absolutely seamless. His detailed understanding of the Newport Beach Market allowed Tim to foresee increased market prices well in advance of other agents. I must admit that I had some trepidation when Tim suggested we list it for a price higher than the market average. Ultimately I trusted in his judgment and the net result was a sale at full list price. Not once but twice! Based on my experiences with Tim Smith I would be crazy to transact real estate with anyone other than The Smith Group.
Tim and his team are the best! They worked extremely hard to market my house and find the right buyers who were financially able to complete the transaction. Tim has a keen awareness of the market and suggested we lower the price to reflect the recent dip, which was followed with multiple offers. Their team provides regular feedback and updates on showings and marketing. They disclose everything, vet issues, and address the concerns of a buyer. Please, please, go with Tim and his team. You will get top dollars for your home, and find great confidence in their transparent and upfront delivery of services.
Tim Smith is great. He uses data to understand market pricing and industry trends. He is extremely helpful in guiding the seller through the entire sales cycle. Plus he is a cool guy. I am happy to recommend Tim and his group!
The Smith Group is your best choice. Tim and his team are outstanding, they know the real estate market, and they’re
number one in Orange County. You’ll be well taken care of and extremely happy with the results.”
I was very happy with my experience with Tim Smith and his team. They are the epitome of professionalism. From the introductory presentation, to getting the house ready to show, including photography, staging the entire house (inside-and-out), putting together impressive marketing materials— the entire team worked flawlessly to get everything ready. Their follow through was impeccable. They showed me how pleasant it can be to sell your home. We sold at the highest dollar per square-foot price for this track for the entire year. And sold within the first three month’s of our contract. I am very grateful to The Smith Group.
Tim Smith delivers on what he promises in his promotional materials. Never have I experienced a real estate professional with such follow-through. After listing the home for over 1 year with no results, Tim indicated that he prices homes at 98% of their ultimate sales price, and that he would be getting an offer in 90 days. He delivered on both. Tim’s involvement was comprehensive. He worked with outside parties to prepare the home in the best possible way to sale, including: staging, cost-effective painting, and uplifting photography. Additionally, when an offer came in, Tim negotiated and worked with the buyer representative on behalf of the seller to get the price within the listing promise.
As a professional real estate investor, we turn to the best when it comes time to sell one of our developments or redevelopments. We recently engaged Tim and his team to list a property for us. We look for market knowledge, confidence in list price, marketing capabilities and ability to negotiate and bring the sale to a smooth closing. The Smith Group has the best marketing platform I have seen, but more importantly, Tim masterfully negotiated with the Buyer’s agent and Buyer to get us the terms we were looking for— and the entire process was smoother than I was used to. The results: in escrow in 4 days, close of escrow in 11 days from offer, and a price much higher than his competitors wanted to list the house for. I wouldn’t hesitate a second when recommending Tim and his team to market your home for sale.
Tim Smith is an extremely professional and personable real estate broker. He is responsive and understands the marketplace. I enjoyed working with him and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. I highly recommend him!
Before choosing Tim Smith as my realtor I had interviewed several candidates. Upon receiving an impressive email recommendation about Tim from one of my trusted advisors, my decision was made. He followed through with exactly what he laid out in his unique selling proposal and was impeccably professional. Tim and his team were available for every part of the sale in a hands-on manner. His personal touch during negotiations was extremely helpful in soothing the stress that can easily accompany the selling process. The Smith Group knows the market, they get to know you, your needs and wants, and they make the deal happen. From beginning to end they did everything right!
If you need a realtor who knows his stuff, and works hard for you without being overly pushy, then Tim Smith is for you. Tim worked on selling my condo for 11 months. His knowledge of the properties currently available and sold, as well as the cost per sq. ft. of virtually every coastal comp’d property in the area, greatly aided selling potential clients. The Smith Group advertises frequently with stunning photography— a great benefit that keeps the property in front of the market. Tim has developed an art of being able to adapt to buyers questions and sell benefits. The Smith Group is professional and friendly, a hard combo to find these days.
