I would recommend Team Smith whole-heartedly. From the very beginning, David and Tracy were knowledgeable about the current market, reassuring about what buyers are and are not looking for, and supportive in every way. And they return phone calls, which is huge! Team Smith was responsive in every way, addressing our concerns, available when needed and reassuring about the things that concerned us. I don’t remember any problems, but I was impressed by the fact that David was very patient when we said we wanted to get the house in better shape to put on the market. Because this was a “labor of love” owner-built custom home, it was important to us to take care of certain “little things” that we wanted to refurbish, even if it wouldn’t have an impact on a buyer’s decision. Well, now that I think of it, there was one problem: the house sold so quickly that we didn’t have any more time to spend with David and Tracy!
I really can’t say enough about David Randal Smith and his team. I looked for a residence for over 6 months and switched search areas three times. David stuck with me and remained extremely responsive throughout the process. He almost immediately had a strong understanding of what I was looking for and continued to provide me with listings that fit my preferences and price range. He provided guidance and was always available to me and considering my schedule, that had to be difficult for him. If you’re looking for a real estate professional who actually answers the phone when you call, then he’s your guy. My best operative definition of professional integrity is: ‘Does what they say they’ll do, when they say they’ll do it.’ This pretty much encapsulates my experience with David.
It’s rare to receive such personalized service these days, particularly when we’re talking a Very Limited Budget, in a Very Expensive Area. But to also find a top-notch professional, who’s willing to follow-up with phone calls, one who’s obviously very well connected–and KNOWLEDGEABLE–is like finding a GOLDMINE. It’s obvious that she reallllly cares about her clients, and truly cares about finding The Right Property for them. After all, we’re ‘only’ talking about locating the ‘right’ home~~in the best location, for the fairest price. Someone who is kind and friendly and will go that Extra Mile to go after it for you. Let’s just sum it up this way, if you’re looking for a ’10’ on a scale of 1-10, Stacy is a SOLID 15.
The 5 stars I have awarded to Stacy Leonard were a reflection of the service she provided to myself and my partner. We had long dreamed of owning a property in the US and Stacy helped us achieve this dream. Her quick response to my emails and provision of market information encouraged us to fly out and view the list of properties compiled for us. Stacy visited the properties with us, helped us identify the ideal home and guided us through the offer and buying process. We couldn’t have done it without Stacy and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for properties in her chosen area.
5 star all the way! Tracy and Dave leased our home in two days for top dollar. They were available, efficient and helpful every step of the way. Their level of professionalism is unparalleled as you will see from the moment you ask for help. Not only did they take care of business but they were also reassuring as we handed over the keys to our home. Thanks to Tracy and Dave Smith we have a lovely couple acting as stewards to our beautiful house and garden.
David & Tracy are not only thoroughly knowledgeable on the local real estate market, but are very trustworthy and align themselves with their clients’ goals. They developed a customized marketing plan for our home, targeting a niche audience. I would recommend Team Smith without any reservation. Not only are they great at what they do, but have the highest integrity and are invested in the community.
We worked with David on purchasing a couple of properties. I can say with authority that David presented himself as a reliable, very knowledgeable professional. He always puts his best effort, spends extra time and tries his best to make a deal for his clients. I find him easily accessible any time, day or evening. I’d recommend him to everybody.
Stacy listened to us, and matched up homes exactly to what we were looking for. She had our interest in mind and did not show us homes (pushing an agenda) out of the price range we had in mind. She was honest, responsive!, and a real delight to have as an agent. We highly recommend Stacy and will use her again without hesitancy.
David Smith was incredible. My wife and I wanted a very specific house in the Hollywood hills. David Smith found a perfect location, perfect views, great house, in our price range, got us in early, advised us expertly how to navigate the seller, and our offer was accepted. David Smith made our dreams come true.
Tracy and David Smith are high character people and extremely trustworthy, working with their clients’ best interest in mind. They navigated me through the short sale of my home with great knowledge and attentiveness to my situation. They are quality people whom I would recommend highly.
This team was right on top of things from the beginning. They are adept at quickly getting to the heart of what you are looking for as a buyer, and seller and meeting your needs. I appreciate their energy and skills. I have no qualms about using them again or referring a friend!
We were looking for a fixer with great potential, Stacy found the perfect house the first day it was listed and successfully negotiated on our behalf despite multiple other offers. She is smart, knowledgeable, dedicated and really great to work with. We highly recommend her!
