What Dennis Smith's Clients Say....
Browse the many testimonials our clients send to us because of the way we provide service to them:
Home inspector Andy says: I have known Dennis Smith since October of 1997. Over these 14 years, I have inspected homes for many of his clients, perhaps a couple of hundred altogether.
I have never found Dennis to pursue the transaction at the expense of his client's interest. He and his partner Sunshine Smith are good communicators. By the time I get to the house to do the inspection, the clients have already been informed about the inspection process.
A few years ago I had a good friend who needed help getting his home ready for the market. Dennis very patiently worked with my friend and brought professionals to help complete the process of getting the house ready. It sold fairly quickly for a little over the asking price.
In general I consider Dennis Smith to be an accomplished Realtor.
I hired Dennis Smith to sell my 85 year old mother's mobile home as he was referred to have experience in working with seniors. The situation was complex because my mom was involved, her husband wanted a say, his son was involved in assisting with a contractor needed to make repairs, I had the overall responsibility and my significant other was assisting me. Dennis was great in communicating with us all. He is honest and trustworthy. There were just a few hic-ups and Dennis went the extra mile in resolving these. The mobile home sold at above the asking price which was an added bonus.
Dennis and Sunshine Smith were excellent in helping us to sell our home. They have years of experience and it shows. We found they were especially good at understanding the market, how to price our house, and negotiating with the buyer when it came to final issues to close the sale. We think Dennis is exceptionally honest. He was in touch with us daily. Our house sold in less than three weeks and we are delighted with the result.
I would highly recommend Dennis Smith as a real estate agent. I just completed a short sale of my house in Carlsbad, CA. After 2 years of unsuccessfully working with my bank to refinance my house, Dennis was able to sell my house is less than 2 months. His knowledge of the local market and overall short sale process proved invaluable. His team was knowledgeable, professional and extremely responsive throughout the entire process. They took the time to explained what to expect beforehand, laid out a clear timeline, and stayed close to ensure all required steps were completed successfully. From initial marketing to bank negotiations to final closing, Dennis and his team were top-notch.
Just this year I decided it was time to sell my home and downsize. Dennis came highly recommended and at no time was I disappointed in that recommendation. Dennis's extensive experience and knowledge of the local market were evident from the beginning. His contacts and marketing skills resulted in my home selling the first weekend it was on the market. Closing two escrows at the same time can be extremely stressful, but the support was phenomenal. Dennis has something that I think is hard to come by these days -- integrity.

We'll definitely refer you to our friends, knowing you'll listen to them as you listened to us, and help them with their home buying & selling. Thank you again for an excellent job!

My name's Troy and I recently bought my first house located here in Oceanside, CA with the help of Dennis and Sunshine. I was particularly picky about my dream house so they bared with my long term house hunt and helped me find the best choices. They filled me in on important local and strategic details that home buyers would overlook. I have heard painful stories about the home buying process but we must have gotten lucky. Once found the right house Dennis gave us guidance and before I knew it escrow was over! The complimentary moving truck was just icing on the cake. We have been loving the house ever since.
So helpful, professional, knowledgeable and more especially working with me as a 1st time buyer. I highly recommend him as your go to person for any real estate needs.
With Dennis I never had to worry or be concerned about anything. Everything was done down to the smallest detail and done beyond my expectations. His experience, knowledge, and performance put him on the top tier of realtors and I have had much experience buying and selling property. From the beginning, Dennis educated me regarding the nature of real estate in the area, and proceeded to identify over 30 properties that were relevant to my need. We quickly pared that down to a manageable number and visited all of them in a long, but productive day. He understood what was right for me and found it that day. He negotiated everything I wanted with excellent and effective professionalism. As far as I'm concerned, you would be unwise to look any further for a realtor. Hire him today! (Dennis notes: this was a 1031 exchange from a property in New York)
Dennis Smith was my agent for a recent investment home purchase. I am an out of town investor who required an experienced, honest and trustworthy real estate professional. Dennis delivered. During my short trip to North County, we evaluated several houses that fit my criteria and I submitted an offer. We reached agreement and the deal closed while I was out of town, which required that I rely on Dennis to take care of many of the details I could not personally take care of. In every instance, Dennis followed through on his word. I never once felt like he left a detail unattended to. In addition, he reminded and prompted me of upcoming actions I would need to take and explained the process thoroughly. If I were to buy another property in North County San Diego, I would use Dennis as my agent and will recommend him to friends and family.
I have known Dennis Smith for over 20 years. His listening skills and extensive knowledge of North County San Diego made him the perfect real estate professional to help me find, negotiate and purchase a home in Rancho Santa Fe. Although it was a complicated transaction everything went smoothly thanks to Dennis' people skills and attention to detail. Later, when it came time to sell the home the listing decision was easy, because Dennis Smith gets the job done! You will find Dennis Smith honorable, thorough and results-oriented. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.
Dennis and Sunshine Smith are the best real estate agents I have ever had the pleasure working with. Dennis has a lot of resources at his fingertips to get you the best price weather you are buying or selling. In my book they are top negotiators and the service is second to none. They keep you up to date every step of the way. They are not just agents. You will find that you will build a relationship with them and become friends. I have known Dennis and Sunshine for about 12 years now and I would never consider using anybody but then for any of my real estate needs.
I discovered Dennis Smith when I was looking for a place to retire in the Encinitas, California area. I had spent months checking out different areas online from afar. When I was ready, Dennis gave me an overview of different areas I hadn't seen and my options. With his assistance, I purchased a condo long distance with only two trips to the location. He is very knowledgeable about real estate, availability and the market trends. The purchase went very smooth as he is current with the technology needed to transfer and complete documents in an expeditious manner. I also noticed the thoughtful consideration he had both for his buyers and for those whose homes were being viewed.I was very pleased with his services and highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
