What Buyers & Sellers Say About Us

Having bought and sold numerous homes, I must say Larry is the most professional, reliable, and personable Realtor I have had the pleasure to work with. We were out of state sellers and Larry was such a help and kept us updated throughout the whole process.

We looked for a local Realtor and found Larry last summer. We were so impressed with his professionalism that it was a no brainer when we decided it was time to sell our house.

Absolutely the best decision we made to sell our house was to call Kathy & Larry Smith. If we needed real estate services in Flowery Branch or vicinity again, we would choose the Smith's without a doubt!!!
Our experience to sell our house started off terribly bad with a lousy agent who wasn't interested in selling our property. After we finally fired her, we found the Smith's because they are a Certified Real Estate Agent (CRA). A friend who is an agent sent their name to us. We called 3 people, they were the only agent who responded to our message!
Larry was quick to respond to our message, he listened carefully to what our situation was and made an appointment for the very next day to come see our house. Larry is professional, polite, efficient and thorough. He explained the entire process to us calmly and with tons of details. Larry walked us through the process of the listing and explained how he and Kathy would market our house to get it sold... fast!
And they did, we listed and had offers just 5 days later. Although our first offer didn't work out (the buyer backed out), Larry was quick to advise us on how to adjust our listing to appeal to the next buyer.
Then, Larry helped us to negotiate the details and get the inspection and appraisal done- quickly and efficiently.
In the end, we got the price we were looking for and all with a smile and ease.
It's too bad we moved out of state and can't use the Smith's for our new home purchase. If we could, we have them come here!!! You are making a great choice if you select the Smith's for your real estate needs. Don't waste your valuable time and money going elsewhere.

My wife and I found Kathy and Larry Smith to be exceptionally professional in every aspect of their work on our behalf. Our home was on the market but 5 days - and no sign in our yard - when Larry obtained our first and, as it turned out, only offer. That's right; or home sold in just five (5) days. We have subsequently recommended Larry and Kathy to three other couples when we were asked how we managed to sell so quickly. Neither my wife or I would be hesitant in the least in recommending Larry and Kathy to anyone interested in selling their property.

Interviewed several agents during a tough time in the market, and they all told me I was in trouble. One even recommended that I try to lease my home, rather than sell it. Larry and Kathy took the time to do extra research and came away with better comparisons (and better news). We priced more aggressively, and had multiple competing offers in 20 days. Larry offered expert advice in negotiating, so that we sold for above the asking price. Larry was always responsive to my questions and concerns, and he helped navigate us through until closing. The experience could not have gone smoother--largely because of the professional and courteous service of Kathy and Larry Smith. I could not recommend them more highly. They sure helped me out.

Kathy and Larry were so incredible with helping get our house sold. We thought we would have to try a short sale, but with their up-to-date knowledge of the local market, we were able to sell it for well over what we owed. It was such a relief to work with such a great team.

Kathy and Larry are simply Awesome! My parents had to move out of state to be with family for health reasons before the home sold. They always were on top of things. Lines of communication, wide open. I never once worried about the sale of my parents home. They even went out and shut the water off to the house when weather went to pipe busting temps.-- always professional, call them!! You'll just love them!

The Smith Team was awesome. True experts in residential real estate. Great followup and once we got offers Larry was excellent at advising us & representing our interests as sellers. They know the rules & laws governing contracts, etc.... Would without a doubt use them again whether we were buying or selling.

My wife, Louise, and I met with Kathy Smith during our search for a different home. She was the listing agent on a property which we looked at but did not buy. Kathy then offered to assist us in finding a property that best suited our needs. WOW! Did she ever!
In two weeks time, we viewed several options and fell in love with one. Then Kathy went to work on our behalf to help us negotiate a reasonable and fair offer.
After securing our new home, we listed our existing home with Kathy. Once again, she diligently worked to market our home and within one week it was shown several times. Not a week went by without a showing, and within a month we had an offer. It was low and Kathy, once again, worked tirelessly to help us achieve a reasonable price for our home. But we were not done yet! Unfortunately, the appraiser for the buyer encountered difficulties in finding comparables on which to base his valuation. The appraisal came in lower than the agreed upon contract. Once again, Kathy went into action to negotiate a new price that both the buyer and seller could live with.
I can’t say enough positive things about the way Kathy conducted herself on both transactions. She is THE MOST professional real estate agent I have ever used! (This covers 40 years and over 20 real estate transactions).I highly recommend Kathy Smith to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate property.

I have bought and sold a couple homes with the help of Kathy and Larry. Both times my house sold quickly for a good amount. I would recommend them and plan on working with them again in the future.

Thanks to you, I am typing this letter in the comfort of my beautiful, Ringgold, Georgia, dream home.  After having been through three contracts, three inspections, two appraisals, in less than eight weeks in the sale of our Loganville home, I am very grateful for this moment.  Needless to say, it has been an exhausting journey! Thanks for hanging in there with us, I don't know what I would have done without your understanding, care, and support.  When negotiations got tough and tension was high, you were firm and professional always looking out for our best interest.  At times, I would tell Miguel that you would work your "Kathy Magic," and each time you did!  Thank you! One of the things that I really like about you is that you have always looked out for our best interest, whether you were our buyer's agent, like you were eighteen years ago, when you helped us purchase our Loganville home, or a seller's agent as you were recently when you sold that very home.  This is noteworthy, since ultimately realtors benefit most from the sale price of a home.  Every year when Miguel and I received your magnetic calendar, we would say, "If we ever sell our home, we want Kathy to sell our home."  We absolutely have not regretted it.  All three times in the eight weeks our home went on the market, it went into contract just hours after the first showing, because you had done the market research and knew exactly how to price the home to sell. It didn't take much to convince Miguel and I what the "right price" was, because you came with evidence from the market analysis you had done.  You also went above and beyond the call of duty to provide your research with the appraiser to make sure our home was appraised properly. Your hard work paid off selling our home in just eight weeks, at full market price, with no closing cost, and closing within the time frame that we needed to close on our new home in Ringgold.  We are so very grateful and can't thank you enough! The second thing that I really appreciated about you is how you communicated with us consistently, and effectively throughout the entire buying and selling process.  When you were our buyer's agent, you helped us build our home being the liaison between us and the builder.  Your attention to every detail guiding us through the process of building a home for the first time was amazing!  You did the same recently when you sold that very home for us eighteen years later.  Again, we couldn't have done it without you. Last, but of all the very most important is that we have always, since day one, felt that we could trust you.  In both the purchase and sale of our Loganville home, withstanding the test of eighteen years of time, not once did we doubt that you were looking out for us.  Yet, at the same time  you respected our opinions, even when they might have disagreed with yours.  Thank you for all that I said and so much more that I could have said about how awesome you have been to work "with!"  Miguel and I wish you the best. 

 God bless and thanks again,

We have used Larry and Kathy on all of our real estate transactions. They have a wealth of knowledge which saved us thousands of dollars on our most recent sale. They were professional and attentive to all our needs not only as our agent but was also very helpful with our mortgage loan questions.  I recommend Larry and Kathy to all my family and friends and will continue to use them on my future real estate purchases and or  sales.

I highly recommend Kathy & Larry Smith if you are planning to sell or buy a home. Our house was marketed by Kathy & Larry, and within two weeks we had an offer to buy. We settled within 18 days. The Smith's will market your house not just based on home values in your area, although this is a factor in todays real estate market, , but present your home based on features the home has to offer. For example, our house had a finished basement with an office area featuring built-in bookcases, file cabinets, and a computer desk. This was ideal for someone working out of the home. I can assure you Kathy & Larry work very hard to get the right buyer.

Anybody who is serious about buying or selling a home should definitely talk with Kathy.

Thank you for all you have done. You are a professional who we would highly recommend to others. Without your faith, steadfastness and vision we realize we would not have been in our new home as planned. We appreciate you. We love our new home.

Kathy and Larry Smith sold our home when the economy was awful and it seemed impossible to sell anything! They were extremely knowledgeable and professional, and their marketing strategy was aggressive. We didn’t know the Smiths before we put our house on the market, but they treated us with absolute integrity, always going the extra mile! When we had to move out of state suddenly, they watched over the house, and also supervised repairs! They communicated frequently, and we received lots of feedback about how our house was showing. They guided us through all legal processes and represented us at closing. They not only have our highest recommendation, but also our heart-felt thanks!

Larry was more helpful & seemed to have more info than we expected on the area we moved to. Couldn't have been a better experience for us, especially coming from another state.

We have known Kathy and Larry Smith for close to twenty years and during that time they have helped my family buy or sell their homes eight different times. They have been a pleasure to work with and have shown themselves to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. It is our pleasure to recommend them and we believe you will find their services extremely beneficial. Best wishes and may God Bless
