JKSeam sold a home in Seaside

I recently had the pleasure of William Smith; the Team Leader Broker at Carmel Luxury Group, broker the sale of my mother’s house in Seaside California. The sale was accomplished remotely, with William providing the coordination across all the many items involved in a sale. He handily coordinated the inspections, maintenance, cleaning, and staging required to make the house sale ready. He also coordinated hiring the Title Company to handle the necessary deed validation, sale price and seller/buyer coordination to allow the sale to go through efficiently and without undue delay so that the property was able to complete escrow and the sale to be completed on time as agreed to by the seller and buyer... William managed to make what could have been a very stressful and unpleasant experience a manageable and satisfying one. Should you need a competent, & very pleasant professional to sell your home or to assist you in buying one, then William Smith & his team is who you want in your corner.

Robert H. sold a home in Marina, CA

Well done. William guided us through the preparation of the house to bring us to presentation stage. Then William commenced the Marketing program. Which was massive and included electronic communication with 700 web sites. The Marketing was seamless and easy for us. Once the house was presentable, it took William less than 30 day to sell and close Escrow and money in my Bank Account.

Maria K. sold a home in Carmel, CA

This Five-Star review for excellence is an easy one for me and my family to award the William Smith Luxury Group. They did an excellent job from the first presentation with their hardcover book containing the Comparative Market Analysis and their Gold Listing Concierge Marketing Plan, to the last communication on the day we closed escrow. Communication is their strength. They provided us with a Listing Activity Report via email compiling ongoing data, listing and graphing every time there was a showing, a buyer review of the property, a marketing piece released, and whenever a listing milestone was reached. We were a family trust selling the home we grow up in. There were strong opinions about who to choose as our Realtor amongst the five family members and we all agreed on Williams team. We highly recommend William Smith and his team, the William Smith Luxury Group.

Training K. sold a home in Carmel

From the start, William Smith and his team were outstanding in their service. They were honest regarding market conditions and kept us informed at every step of the marketing process. William held regular meetings with us to discuss the sales plan. We were very impressed with the use of professional photographers and web pages to produce images to market the property. I have been a landlord and property owner for over 40 years. I once held a real estate license. I have never experienced or witnessed better service and commitment to the customer!
