SOLD in 4 Months!

We recently did an across state move and listed our home with Elizabeth Smith. Communication was key since we were no longer able to meet in person and we never felt clueless in the process. She made it easy and kept us updated frequently. Our home was sold in just 4 months and we couldn't be more thankful for her assistance! We highly recommend SGR!

Easy long distance buy!

We were moving from Asheville NC to Sanford NC and the home buying process could not have been easier. Elizabeth was very responsive and easy to work with. She was able to gain our trust early on and her knowledge of the market place was second to none. There is a reason she is #1 in Sanford!!! Thank you for all that you did for us Elizabeth!

My husband and I were so incredibly happy with our experience with Smith Group Realty! Elizabeth was so helpful and so knowledgeable throughout the process, it just made it so smooth and easy! I don't know what I would have done without her. Every time we changed our minds or thought of something different, she was right there coaching us through. She gave us the pros and cons of everything which I love, it showed me she was truly invested and looking out for us! I would recommend this company to anyone. We are so happy with our decision and where we are now because of them and Elizabeth!!

Thank you, Leslie!

Leslie just helped us close on our first home and we were thrilled to have worked with her. She was always readily available to answer questions, show homes, and give incredible advice. She also has an extensive network and can help you find just about anybody to do any job. We were referred by family and now Leslie is like family to us. We will definitely be referring her to anyone and everyone. We couldn't be happier with our experience. Thank you, Leslie!!

Great experience from beginning to end!

I first got involved with Smith Group Realty when I looked at a house they were listing. Nate was extremely professional and helpful on my tour of the house.I worked with Elizabeth to put an offer on the house, during closing the entire house purchasing process, and closing. Elizabeth was very helpful during every step of the way. As a first time home buyer, Elizabeth was so willing to answer all of my questions and she double and tripled checked after everything for me. I am extremely thankful to Elizabeth and the Smith Group Realty team for a great first time home buying experience! I highly recommend this wonderful group of people!

First Time Buyer

We had an awesome experience with Elizabeth as our Realtor. Being first time home buyers, we had many questions that we were able to have answered quickly and we were brought to a level of comfort as we went through the entire process of securing our home. Elizabeth was extremely helpful, available, and effective throughout the process. We gladly recommend her to everyone looking for a house in this area!

I've never had a realtor work so hard, and find the perfect place at the perfect price. Couldn't be happier!

Very User Friendly!

Elizabeth did a great job with the sale of our house. Incredibly easy to work with and very responsive. The entire process went wonderfully and the house sold like lightning!

Darin & Kim Beavers, first time home buyers

Smith Group Realty exceeded our expectations! As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions about what kind of house we wanted, where we wanted to live, what we could afford, etc.  Our Realtor, Elizabeth Smith, went above and beyond and helped us find our perfect home.  She did more than her fair share of research to show us homes that met all of our “must have” criteria. We also appreciated that she was honest when we went to see a home and knew it wasn’t the right one for us. She was the first person to point out a flaw or remind us of the things we said we wanted vs. making an impulse buy. In the end we decided that building our first home was the way to go. Elizabeth was at every meeting with us, reviewing all correspondence between us and the builder and she always had our best interest in mind. She made this process so easy and anyone would be lucky to partner with her when they are ready to find their perfect home. A big thanks to Elizabeth and Smith Group Realty!

Kim Pritt, seller

Working with Elizabeth Smith and Smith Group Realty on the sale of my home was a pleasure.  I put my home on the market and moved out of state the next day.  Selling a home long distance can be extremely stressful, but Elizabeth did everything she could to ensure the process went smoothly and that I was kept informed every step of the way.  She was very accessible and responsive whenever I had questions or just wanted to touch base with her.  Also, since I was over 800 miles away, she went the extra mile to check on my home periodically and do things that I wasn’t able to do.  She is a joy to work with and I highly recommend Smith Group Realty for anyone who wants personal, professional, and effective representation in the sale or purchase of a home.  You rock, Elizabeth!  Thank you so very much for all you did to help sell my home.

Chad Spivey, Investor

Working with you, Elizabeth, has been a great experience. Your knowledge and efficiency has made purchasing homes a positive experience. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Eric & Lisa Maynor, buyer

Thanks for the help in our new purchase.  We are really excited and appreciate all of your help.  I know most purchases do not go through the trouble we did dealing with a government foreclosure but the help you provided staying on those people while they were slow in the process was very valuable to my family.  Thanks and God bless.

Stewart & Anne Monti, home buyer

We moved from Portland, Oregon.  We had been referred to Elizabeth Smith with Smith Group Realty, and were satisfied at every turn.  She found out what we wanted and then found it for us.  A lot happens when one buys a house, especially in our situation, and Elizabeth was particularly good at keeping us informed and making sure everything got done.  It was one of the easiest home purchases I’ve ever made, and as an Air Force retiree I’ve seen many Realtors.  She is one of the best.

Taylor and Susan Uzzell, seller

Our contract with Smith Group Realty was signed on January 28, 2011.  The first showing was within one week; the house was under contract within 21 days.  The closing was April 6, 2011, which was less than 10 weeks from the original contract.  From our wonderfully short period of initial listing to the final closing, Elizabeth was a joy to work with.  We credit her comprehensive range of cutting-edge marketing skills along with her expertise in the field of real estate. And most importantly were her people skills, which came naturally to Elizabeth.  Her caring, personal involvement  for both the sellers and buyers made this a very pleasant transaction for everyone.

Matt Barrett, seller

We worked with Elizabeth during the Summer of 2010. I don’t know if that was the worst time to put your home on the market but it definitely wasn’t a good time. She not only got our home sold in about 4 months when the average for most homes during that period is over a year, but also worked above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and get a good price for our house.

Ryan & Jesse Davidson, first time home buyers

Elizabeth helped us buy our first home and the process could not have gone any better. She was very helpful from start to finish. Going in we had no idea what we were doing.  But she answered every question we had. She set up all the home inspections and appraisals. Also gave us numbers to everyone we needed to contact, including different home insurances and electric companies. We would recommend using Elizabeth in buying or selling a home to everyone. She was wonderful to work with and down to earth. Thank you so much Elizabeth we are so grateful to have your help. Without you we would not be enjoying our wonderful home.

Beth Willis Kittler, seller

I cannot begin to express my deep appreciation and gratitude for all that you did to help me through this  house-selling process.  Elizabeth, your very high level of expertise, knowledge and professionalism were why I wanted to work with you, but I was also continually grateful for your warmth and heartfelt friendliness during those moments when I got discouraged.  I am convinced that I got the best representation from initial listing to final closing because I was working with you.  Thank you for all your hard work in keeping me informed at each and every step of this process.

Steve Brewer, home buyer

We picked out a house we liked and in just a couple of hours, Elizabeth had us a contract with the owner.  Smith Group Realty was great!  They handled scheduling all the necessary inspections and appointments and kept us well informed along the way.  All we had to do was just show up at the closing.

Brent Smith, J. Brent Smith Construction

My company recently worked with Elizabeth Smith and found her to be a very conscientious and knowledgeable Realtor. She is an extremely hard worker and kept us informed of the many ways that she marketed our property and the progress that she made. We would recommend her realty company to any seller or buyer and we will definitely seek her professional help in the future.

Mark Edwards, seller

Smith Group Realty was great to work with. Elizabeth kept me very informed on every aspect of her marketing efforts for my home. I received monthly updates with copies of the advertisements they ran and emails informing me of potential buyer feedback. I would suggest anyone interested in buying or selling a home talk to Elizabeth, she’s very professional and wonderful to work with!


Lindsay Sutton, homeowner

Choosing Smith Group Realty was the best decision I could have made during the course of selling my home. Elizabeth was extremely organized throughout and made the selling process seamless and fun. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more professional real estate agent!

Sherrie Read, buyer

It was an absolute pleasure and great experience to be able to work with such a professional company as Smith Group Realty. Purchasing a home is usually a very stressful time and we are still amazed at how easy Smith Group Realty made it for us from writing the contract to closing. Thank you!

April & David Montgomery, seller

Elizabeth, Thank you so much for all the hard work and personal assistance you put into selling our house on Steele Street.  We were really pleased with your thorough and unique takes on marketing the property.  More importantly, we recognize how hard you worked at the end, with the appraisal, inspection and legal hoops that one always forgets comes after you have a contract-and that’s the really hard part.  We would definitely use you again.

Phil & Shaun Bethea, seller

The Smith Group Realty listed and sold our home in an efficient and professional manor.  They provided targeted market guidance and were proactive in selling our home in under 2 weeks.  We will use their services again and will continue to recommend the Smith Group.

John Crumpton, Lee County Manager

My wife Katherine and I had a great experience in working with Elizabeth.  Elizabeth was very flexible with her schedule and worked with us so that we could see houses when it was convenient for us. We worked with her for almost a year trying to find the perfect house so that when we could move we would be ready.  When the timing was right she helped us find a house that met and exceeded our expectations.  She also helped us work out a financial arrangement that would allow us to move into our new house while we still try to sell a house back where we moved from.  Elizabeth not only was a great Realtor but became a great friend during the process.  We highly recommend her to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home.

Aimee Petrarca, home buyer

My husband and I dreaded the business side of finding and buying a home.  That dread subsided when we found Elizabeth at Smith Group Realty.  Elizabeth was honest, personable, and equally professional.  Without any outdated sales tactics, Elizabeth took care of everything to get us into our dream home.  We feel like Sanford is fortunate to have Smith Group Realty raising the bar for our local real estate business.
