Five-star reviews from clients of Sandy Smith
“Our home was listed privately and we had given up on trying to sell through a real estate agent. You convinced us to give your office a try to see the difference. And did we ever. You sold our home! But not only that, it was the exposure. Everyone knew our home was for sale. Wanda and I want to thank you personally for going the ‘extra mile’ which is what it took to find a buyer and get the money we needed out of the sale.”
“We have had a great deal of experience working with other real estate agents … and rank you among the top of the agents we have hired. We would recommend you without hesitation to others considering you to sell their home. You have an excellent sense of market pricing and are a fantastic negotiator, keeping yourself cool throughout the process. We can’t thank you enough for your work on our behalf."

Top 5 reasons for hiring a Cranbrook real estate
agent for selling your home
Selling your home? It’s a big step, but with an experienced Realtor® working for you, you will likely end up with a better deal. Here are the top five reasons you benefit from hiring a professional real estate agent to help you sell your Cranbrook real estate:
Correct pricing is key to selling your property in a reasonable time. An experienced Realtor® can do a detailed market analysis to find the right price for selling your home.
Nowadays, buyers are doing a lot of their search for properties with their fingers and not their feet. Your property must be described well online. An experienced agent can help you use the enticing words and phrases to sell your home and, most importantly, list your home through MLS (Multiple Listing Service).
Selling a home involves a great deal of complex paperwork, which you don’t want to get wrong. An experienced agent is already a pro at filling out this paperwork with much less headache for you.
Can you show your home professionally? A professional Realtor® has the time, seven days a week, to show your home to potential buyers with an unbiased attitude.
Over the years, sales of FSBO homes (For Sale By Owner) have been decreasing. Why? There are many reasons but one of them is that a professional agent will often get you a higher price for your home.
What is the market value of my home in the Cranbrook
and Kimberley real estate market?
The market value is an opinion of what a property would sell for in a competitive market based on the features and benefits of that property. It factors in the overall real estate market in the area (such as supply and demand) and what similar properties have sold for in the same condition.
The market value of your home is not the same as the city’s assessment on your home. That’s simply your home’s tax value.
Arriving at the correct market value of your home is crucial to selling your home in a timely manner. That’s where you need the experience of a professional Realtor®, someone who knows your real estate market like the back of her hand.
What is a Comparative Market Analysis or a CMA? Is a CMA free?
A Comparative Market Analysis will tell you the value of your home. Sandy Smith offers free home evaluations (called CMAs) to determine your home’s market value. Using relevant home sales data, Sandy will look at recently sold homes in your neighborhood to arrive at an estimate for an asking price for your home.
You can trust Sandy to provide you with professional advice to arrive at the right asking price. Call her today for your free home evaluation: 250-421-0835

Should I hire a Realtor® or sell my house on my own (For Sale By Owner)?
The For Sale By Owner (FSBO) market share is about seven per cent and it keeps dropping year after year. The fact is there are pros and cons of selling your home any method, and each home sale has unique characteristics that may make one method or another more appropriate.
Here are some factors to consider
when selling your home:
Homeowners often cannot see the flaws in the house they’ve lived in for so long. Sandy Smith can walk through your home and point out what should be fixed to attract buyers.
To sell your home, you want it exposed to as many potential buyers as possible. Some Realtors® are hesitant to show FSBO homes. Real estate agents prefer to deal with a professional on the other side of the sale, and they want to get their agreed-upon commission for bringing in a buyer. Some agents have been burned in FSBO transactions and therefore your FSBO home may be shunned by agents who have relationships with potential buyers.
Experienced Realtors® like Sandy Smith have a great deal of experience in pricing homes whereas homeowners might be too emotionally attached to their home and therefore might overprice their home.
Sandy Smith has a very wide net of contacts to announce any of her new listings. The more people who know about your home for sale, the sooner it will sell.
Real estate agents like Sandy can weed out unqualified buyers or just plain nosey neighbours. But they also have the time to show your home as real estate is a full-time job. Busy homeowners might not be able to leave work to show their home.
Moreover, most potential buyers are uncomfortable when the owners are present during a home showing.
Selling a home involves negotiations, and real estate agents are experienced to not show the eagerness or desperation that a homeowner might show. Sandy Smith can give the homeowner advice on how and when to counter an offer to keep the negotiations moving forward.
In general, homeowners who hire Realtors® can end up with a better deal and less stress with an experienced professional by their side.
