"I recently had the pleasure of William Smith; the Team Leader Broker at Coldwell Banker Realty of Carmel California broker the sale of my mother’s house in Seaside California. The sale was accomplished remotely, with William providing the coordination across all the many items involved in a sale. He handily coordinated the inspections, maintenance, cleaning, and staging required to make the house sale ready. He also coordinated hiring the Title Company to handle the necessary deed validation, sale price and seller/buyer coordination to allow the sale to go through efficiently and without undue delay so that the property was able to complete escrow and the sale to be completed on time as agreed to by the seller and buyer. To say the least, William managed to make what could have been a very stressful and unpleasant experience a manageable and satisfying one. Should you need a competent, and very pleasant professional to sell your home or to assist you in buying one, then William Smith and his team is who you want in your corner. "

Well done. William guided us through the preparation of the house to bring us to presentation stage. Then William commenced the Marketing program. Which was massive and included electronic communication with 1,700 web sites. The Marketing was seamless and easy for us. Once the house was presentable, it took William less than 30 day to sell and close Escrow and money in my Bank Account.

From the start, William Smith and his team were outstanding in their service. They were honest regarding market conditions and kept us informed at every step of the marketing process.

Extremely Satisfied Client of Tamara Hadley
"Tamara is an incredibly intelligent, strategic, proactive and mindful real estate agent and ally, and highly recommended for anyone who values excellence in real estate. I discovered Tamara through a random Google search in 2021 when trying to identify an agent in Monterey to assist with finding a new home. From the first interaction, I felt as if I was in capable and caring hands. Tamara demonstrated a superior knowledgeable of CA real estate law, the Monterey market (and beyond), home construction, and strategies for leveraging my offers. She had an amazing knowledge of any and every property we collectively identified, and she was proactive in conducting preliminary search and tours to ensure properties met my criteria. Tamara always took my needs seriously and gave my search 150%! Her communication was always clear, timely and error-free. Not all agents can or will operate that way. While this very unusual and competitive real market has posed challenges in finding my new home, Tamara has remained an ally in helping make my dream come true. She embodies a level of professionalism and integrity you just don’t find in real estate or many other industries anymore. Whether you are a buyer or seller, you Cannot go wrong with hiring Tamara. She goes the extra mile!"

Satisfied Neighbor
Mr. Smith was the agent for the recent sale of the home next to us in Carmel By-The-Sea. He was very helpful in negotiating a solution we had with the previous owner for several months. His timely intervention led to our being able to take care of a potential safety hazard without needing to involve our new neighbors as they first assumed ownership. Mr. Smith intervened quickly and effectively -- what more can one ask for!

Happy Seller from Pacific Grove and Happy Buyer in Florida
Hey William, this is Lisa. You know William, I'm going to send you some pictures of where I am standing in my house, because I have truly landed in paradise. This is the house of anybody’s dreams. It truly is. And William, I have to tell you, you're the one who got me here. I know you're going no… but you got me here because you're the one who sold my house in Pacific Grove. You are the one who got so much money that I bought my new house … somehow I have my dream house in Nicaragua… (Actually in Florida, but it feels like the beauty of Nicaragua). I mean to tell you that this house is amazing! So I'm going to send you some photographs from my lanai where I can have a glass of wine, some cheese, and crackers and sit with my friends or just play with my pets. So, love you and thank you William, bye…

We referred our clients to the William Smith Luxury Group and are very pleased with the excellent customer service that our referral clients were given. Their property in Carmel Valley had been on the market with other listing agents and did not sell. William’s follow through and attention to detail was excellent. This was not an easy property to work on. They had to navigate on some rough waters. The clients had challenging showing requirements, but that did not hold William’s team back and they never gave up. William kept me informed as to their marketing progress. We will continue to send more people to William’s team. We send thanks for their team effort, work, and follow through.

William helped us sell our home of 15 years in Carmel Valley and buy one in Carmel. He was upbeat and helpful on both ends of the deal! Selling a home you love can be daunting but William seemed to understand. He and his associates at Coldwell Banker made it a positive experience... even providing moving van ideas and some decorating ideas (thanks to his lovely wife). Every conundrum I baked up in my mind, William was able to answer. When it came to deciding a new place to buy, he took time with us. experimenting with three different scenarios until lighting on the one we love! Thank you for making this an emotionally and financially rewarding experience.

Very quick and smooth transaction. He was able to connect with fellow realtors early in the process thus had showings lined up at the onset of the process - Had offers that exceeded expectations on the table from day one on the market. William has extensive knowledge of the real estate process; he was able to answer any questions that we had along the way as well as provide guidance throughout the process. Highly recommend.

Our father, who lived in another part of the state, passed away recently and we needed to take care of his estate which included selling his house. As we had to travel to take care of things while continuing to work full time, the process seemed a daunting task. Not the least of which was getting the house ready to put on the market. We contacted and interviewed several real estate brokers who knew the area and we chose William and his team based on several factors: knowledge, plan, ease and teamwork. The stress we were going through was not easy but William and his team made things very easy for us. The house sold right away and we got a great price. I can't thank him enough and highly recommend him if you need a great broker.

It's a pleasure having William as a realtor. He's hard-working, effective and honest. His broad experience enables him to negotiate solutions that are acceptable to everyone: buyer, seller, bank, title company, etc. Over years, he has built up trusting relationships with a broad array of capable and reasonably priced contractors/subcontractors to handle everything from plumbing, painting, lawn care, carpentry, electrical work and staging, to help facilitate the sale. He also, of course, knows his market well. I already miss our regular conversations updating me on deal status, about which he was quite conscientious. I highly recommend his services.

William Smith’s 5 star review

In today’s world, we live in a consumer society- buying/selling, always better, always more, never enough- little chance to take root, grow build and contribute to a community.

After 20 years of helping to build sustainable community in the developing Eastern European countries, I returned home to continue my journey in the ‘village’ that once nurtured me.

It was WILLIAM SMITH who, in 2011, listening to my story and hearing my hopes and my dreams, helped me to find “L’Hermitage’ (my home in beautiful, sunny Carmel Valley!) which has become a place of nurturing, healing and peace for myself and others, enabling me to share in the nourishing of my community.

Now, 9 years later, when age and the vagaries of government have drastically reduced my finances, it was WILLIAM SMITH I turned to, feeling that selling the Hermitage was the only solution.

“Wow, the view and the property are fantastic- I can sell it for a million dollars tomorrow!” cried William. “But, I’d like to help you find a way to remain in your home without relinquishing its value in the future. Yes, we live in a consumer society and my job is the purchase and sale of real estate. But we, you and I and all of us belong to a larger’ village’.”

“Just as we’ve done for the past 30 years, it is our gift and our blessing to continue the job of building a sustainable community for our children, grandchildren and village elders… ”

This is our WILLIAM SMITH - Realtor extraordinaire-
planting one family at a time,
nurturing it,
enabling it to grow,
to dream, to love, to serve,
to belong in our community!

With deep felt joy and thanksgiving,

William Smith is the most honest realtor...and he takes care of his clients with respect and patience. He has great insight into the value of a home, instead of arbitrarily inflating the value, as some famous realtors do, in our area. Once your home is priced correctly, with a fair price, he will sell it quickly. And he is a great negotiator when you wish to buy a home. I recommend him highly!
