Penny Smith has been our adovcate throughout the sale of our home, and has real estate expertise that she used to insure our home sale made it to completion.

First, I was impressed that Penny knew several aerial photographers. She contacted one who took awesome stills and video of our home. The photos were clear and made it easy for a potential buyer to want to come and tour our home.

Penny guided us through 4 different potential sales, each of which requlired working with a different realtor and buyer. The difficulties she dealt with include low ball offers, questions about the sale of furniture in our home, understanding that some buyers only make one offer and will not counter-offer, and price selection in order to generate market interest.

Penny understands at what price a home should be listed, and when to adjust the price in order to encourage showings. In fact, after changing the price upon her encouragement, we had 2 more showings.

One quality that sets Penny apart from all other realtors is her advocacy. From the beginning it is clear she represented us as homeowners and only us. When I explained frustrations about an offer, she listened patiently and offered understanding. She explained the components of the real estate contract, and she took action to advocate our position with the other side which ultimately resulted in a very good compromise on closing costs and home warranty costs. This is just one example out of many which shows Penny knows what buyers want, and works with the buyers' agent to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients.

Besides being accessible at all times, Penny used docusign to make the authentication of documents fast and easy.

There are many stresses associated with selling a home and moving. Penny's understanding of this process, her wise advocacy, and her pleasant nature have earned our highest recommendation.

Penny is not only a friend but has been my realtor on a few buying and selling of homes. She was so correct in what she advised me to pay attention to in readying our house for listing, as I was concerned over every little issue. She was right. Being as it had been a while since I sold my last house, she kept me updated on all the new processes and procedures. The home sold very quickly with multiple offers. She was able to decipher the legal terminology in the different contracts offered in order for us to choose the best one. It worked! Penny has been in the business for over 30 years, therefore knowing the best route to take when selling and buying!

Penny Smith was our real estate agent for the recent sale of our home in Westerville. As a result of Penny's efforts we were able to get an agreed upon offer for our home within just six days of our listing being activated for a very agreeable amount. Penny was also very timely as a go between in all of our interactions with the buyers. As a result we were able to complete the closing process quickly.

Penny worked closely with us to coordinate the sale of our home with the completion of our newly built home resulting in a smooth transition requiring only one move. This happened despite a volatile building schedule with our new home that required changes in the schedule for selling our home in Westerville.

All in all, my wife and I were very happy to work with Penny and would recommend her to others as a good person to work with on their home sale.

As a first time home buyer, I had many questions, fears and concerns. Penny Smith could not have been a better realtor for us to answer every question, calm all fears and take care of any concerns.

She is honest and forthright without making you feel pressured. Her calm and kind demeanor truly makes you feel comfortable and confident in your decision.

I would/will highly recommend Penny to anyone looking to buy their next home.
