Jane & Dave Smith - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Jane and David are AWESOME!

They helped me both buy my house, and then when the time came, they helped me sell it. Both times I was very happy! Easy to work with, warm, calm, patient and super organized are just some of the words I would use to describe them. Jane always spent as much time as I needed to talk through the process and any questions. She had great ideas. From the moment I reached out to her when I was looking to buy...i was an immediate fit. I highly recommend Jane and David.

The tandem of Jane and Dave Smith was great for our family and the sale of our house in Pleasant Hill.

They did a great job of knowing the data and the houses we were competing against so that we could make the right business call. The sale and the close of the sale went great.

Dave Bock

Jane and Dave are hard to beat as partners in your real estate journey.

We worked with them for 11 months to find a new family home in Lamorinda. They ensured we were one of the first to view homes we were interested in, they helped uncover less obvious structural home issues, and they used their extensive network to help us remain competitive in a crazy property market. They also acted as coaches to us to better refine what’s important to us, and ultimately helped us close on the best home we’d seen. They were outstanding partners and we could not recommend them more highly.

Jane was fantastic!

!! As first-time buyers she navigated us through the foreclosure process, minimized the stress during a multiple-bid situation and was especially responsive. I have recommended her to family and will use her again next year when we upgrade homes. Thanks Jane!!

Brad

Jane made my real estate transaction so easy.

I would recommend her to any of my clients, friends, relatives and co-workers. She is honest, hardworking, professional and easy to work with.

We have known Jane for over 10 years, and she helped us sell two other homes prior to the home we just sold with her help and the help of her husband Dave Smith.

We completely remodeled our home in Walnut Creek prior to listing it and both Jane and Dave were available and very helpful in consulting with us on various upgrade decisions along the way. When it came time to list, they helped us in any way they could and met with contractors for some final items before we staged our home since we relocated to Southern California. During the listing and escrow period, they looked after our home, even added water in our pool when needed, so it looked its very best for showings. They also went above and beyond meeting with various people at the home during the listing and the escrow period. Our home sold above list in one week and we were very happy with the whole process. We wholeheartedly recommend them. They are real estate professionals you can count on to do the best they can for you.

Debbie & Steve Derby

I have known Jane and Dave since 2010 and can't speak highly enough about them.

They helped me buy my first home in 2016 and maintained a great relationship with me over the last 5 years. When it came time for my wife and I to upgrade at the end of last year they were the first people I called. Not only did they help us find our new home, they were extremely helpful in preparing us to sell our condo for over ask. Loved working with them!

Had a few sensitive issues with the sale of my home.

Consulted with Jane and others as to how to handle my difficult problem (foundation issue). Her suggestions were far and the way the best. Very helpful. Will use Jane for any future purchases or sales.

Ed

Jane and Dave were the sellers' agents for our property.

They sold our Lafayette home in record time - from the time we contacted them to close was under 2 months (during Covid). They worked hard to have our house staged, inspected, and repairs made so that the buyers had a ready to move into home. Throughout the process we had many questions, and they are always available to step us through. Selling and moving can be really stressful, but Jane and Dave did their best to take care of all the details, and have an impressive list of contractors to take care of anything that might come up. They really care about their clients as well as the whole Lafayette community and neighborhood. We always felt like we were in good hands.

Douglas Soltesz

I can not say enough positive things about Jane and Dave Smith.

Renee Kerns

I have worked with Jane many times both personally and professionally and found her to be an excellent resource.

She is a patient and consummate professional that goes the extra mile when it comes to accommodating a client's needs. Her expertise in staging truly sets her apart from her peers.

Austin

So easy to work with.

Incredibly informative about the Walnut Creek area. Fun, friendly and such hard workers...always available for my questions

Ruth Joslen

Jane sold my home in Orinda for me in 2012.

My home had been a rental for a couple of years prior to the sale. She knew exactly what needed to be done to my home to get the most money at sale time. She had excellent professionals she called upon for painting, landscaping and cleaning. She also staged the home. All in all the results were amazing. My home had multiple offers within a week of being on the market and sold with few if any problems. Jane knows what she is doing, anticipates issues before they come up. Did I say how great her staging skills are????

Cindy

Dave and Jane were very professional from start to finish.

They were there with us every step of the way. Very nice and friendly. Sold our home in record time. Jane is a perfectionist. Both Dave and Jane went above and beyond helping us with packing. We can't thank them enough. We highly Jane and Dave Smith.

Barbara E. Crouch

Jane is the perfect Realtor!

She understands what her clients need and she is EXTREMELY patient. Jane has a large network of professionals to help with all of the other things that come along with buying a house; everything from financing to surveying. I have used her to buy two homes and wouldn't consider using anyone else in the future.

Amy

Jane was my real estate agent when after my husband's death I sold my house.

She was knowledgeable, creative and, most importantly, caring. With her help I was able to navigate the bewildering steps necessary for a successful house sale. Her suggestions were spot on and she was always available for any questions or concerns I had. Because of all her hard work my house sold within days of being on the market. I wouldn't consider hiring any other real estate professional.

Virginia

Great great hard working people.

I really have enjoyed working with both of you . Was so lucky to have you guys not only as realtors but also as great friends . Love, Raghad

Raghad Alkhateb

We are so grateful for all of the hard work Jane & Dave have done to not only help us sell our home, but to help us along in our next step into our new home as well.

Jane & Dave make a great complementary real estate team. They navigated us through the pre-sale work - decluttering, staging, documents, web design, right through the open house. Even with the rigid constraints of the pandemic and work-at-home schedules an offer came quickly. Behind the scenes Jane & Dave continued to work through details to see us through the final close. We are endlessly grateful to have Jane & Dave as our agents and couldn't be happier with the way everything worked out.

John & Tamera Lopez

I've been in the real estate business since 1977.

I have represented hundreds of buyers and sellers over the years. I retired a few years ago. With my wife's retirement in February we decided to move to the retirement community of Sun City, Lincoln Hills. We, of course, needed to sell our Pleasant Hill home. I had never had an agent before but decided that the move from Pleasant Hill to the Sacramento area had enough challenges without adding all the complexities of brokering my own home. So we decided to use Jane and David, who had represented both our kids in the past. Okay, that's the back story and here's the recommendation. If you want a trusted advisor who knows the business, who has all the right recommendations of contractors to put your house in perfect selling condition, who has expert negotiation skills, and who is a real estate agent who will answer the hard questions you have honestly and competently, then Jane and David should be your first choice. Jane and David sold our home with multiple offers, ( I think 10). Due to their marketing efforts, our home bid up over $100,000. They brought us an all cash, non contingent offer and it closed in 12 days. The whole thing was effortless for my wife and I. We moved out and gave them a vacant, well lived-in home which they transformed into a very desirable, ready to sell home in about 2 weeks and found us a great buyer willing to close with basically no questions and definitely with no hassles, with a closing about 2 weeks after we put the house on the market. I highly recommend Jane and David Smith if you need to buy or sell a home!

Steve Holderfield

Jane Smith helped us sell our home in Lafayette with great success.

She is soooo easy to work with and excellent at handling prickly people and situations.PREPARATIONS She really went above and beyond to put the house in it's best condition for sale: Jane planned the staging; she had lot's of good ideas he gave good advice on the best work to complete vs those the new owner should consider; she arranged terrific contractors; she got elbow-deep in the implementation. Jane even brought in several items from her inventory of decorative supplies.SALE Jane presented the home to all of the right audiences and in the correct sequence. She was a strong, expert partner through negotiations.ADMINISTRATION Jane's a good planner and kept the project on schedule despite significant challenges.We would love to engage Jane again should the opportunity arise.

Ken

Jane helped us sell our house in Pacheco, Ca in April 2014 and we couldn't be happier with her as our agent.

We interviewed 4 different agents and she came out on top. She help staged our house at a minimal cost (used a lot of the furniture we had) and made our house look like a dream. She was very aggressive with the contractors and deadlines while maintaining a good working relationship with all parties in hand. I would have to say we were probably one of the more difficult sales due to the buyer and buyer agent we had to work with but she keep us calm and kept the pressure on to ensure a successful transaction.Would I recommend Jane to sell your house in the contra costa county? Absolutely, without a doubt she knew exactly what to price our house and market it to get the most value from our investment.Thank you Jane! I only wish I bought and sold houses with you every year!

Nick

Jane sold my home in 9 days.

She was with me the entire process of selling my home of 23 years and purchasing my new home in Danville.

Joanne

Jane is a special person, hard to find somebody like her in life, the pleasure was truly mine.

Don't have the words to describe what she did for my Mom and I, can't thank her enough! The world would be perfect if it were to be populated with more Janes! A great human being! Thanks again.

Francisco

Jane and Dave Smith are the best realtors we could possibly imagine for selling a home.

They spent weeks helping us prepare to move. They are so down to earth and commonsensical about everything, and they don't shy away from getting their hands dirty. They put their own skin in the game for us, and knew exactly what to do at each step along the way. They are the experts, and we couldn't have sold our house so successfully without them.

Ed and Joann Wrinkle

Jane is a realtor who truly works in the best interest of the client and is not afraid to get her hands dirty or do physical work to further that cause.

She truly does go beyond the call of duty as a realtor.

Dan

Jane smith offers great services as a real estate agent.

The first day we met she came to me as a friend and someone who will help me sell my home. She sold my condominium quite quickly during the market fall down. She was always on top of every decision that had to be made. She is very helpful and friendly. I can't say enough. If I move back up north I will definitely call her back.

Monica

I had a very pleasant and supportive experience with Jane working through a difficult real estate transaction.

Jane was diligent and persistent in dealing with difficult and often uncooperative parties to the transaction.Based on this experience, I highly recommend Jane due to her competence, persistence, and pleasant professional manner.
