Great Experience!

This is the second house Elizabeth Smith has sold for us in the past three years, and we couldn’t be happier. She made both transactions smooth and worry-free, giving excellent advice and always professional and knowledgeable. Buying or selling a house is a huge task, and Elizabeth makes it easy.

Great Realty Company

It was such a pleasure working with Elizabeth and all her staff on the recent sale of our home in Sanford, NC. Our house sold in two days with multiple offers! The closing and other logistics were quick, easy and handled professionally by all of the staff at Smith Group Realty. If you are looking to sell or buy in the Sanford area I couldn't recommend a better realty company!

Smith Realty

Elizabeth Smith is a consummate real estate professional! She collaborated with us to promote a very positive profile of our home. Her recommendations for staging the property were "spot-on" with what today's home buyer is seeking. Once we had the house set, Elizabeth produced and presented a marketing plan that produced amazing results! Using superlative media skills, she stayed in close personal contact with us, prompting our immediate actions as necessary. Our property actually sold in four days!! We could not have been more satisfied!!! If you are in the market to sell your real property, then Elizabeth Smith and her team of professionals at Smith Group Realty deserve your second look!

Fantastic Realtor!

Elizabeth is a FANTASTIC Realtor, who we were lucky enough to work with on both the sale and purchase of our home this year. She was able to get us above asking price on the sale of our home, and helped negotiate the purchase of our dream home shortly after - both properties getting to close in under 30 days! She's quick to respond, helps explain everything thoroughly, and knows the Sandhills/Triangle area like the back of her hand. I would highly recommend her as an agent!

Thankful for the opportunity to work with Elizabeth on the sale of our house! She is very knowledgeable, conscientious, and reliable! Her expertise throughout the experience was valuable.

Home sale

Elizabeth was incredibly helpful and responsive during our entire home selling journey. She was very knowledgeable about every step in the process and was quick with answers to all of my many questions. She had our home under contract within days, and when that fell through due to no fault of hers, it was under contract again in just a few more days. We are so thankful to Elizabeth for all she did to help us with the sale of our home.

Home purchase

We absolutely loved working with Elizabeth! She was so responsive and happily answered each and every question we had. This was our 3rd home purchase and was, by far, the easiest and best experience we’ve had. Highly, highly recommend Elizabeth!

I worked with Elizabeth when selling my rental property. She provided excellent advice and was always there for any of my needs. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was handled quickly and to make the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend.

Easiest Process ever

My husband and I are first time home owners and the process was extremely easy, and fast! Elizabeth helped us understand so much and made the process that much easier. We couldn’t have found a better home for ourselves and our two girls! Thanks again Elizabeth!

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.
