Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

I have found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first.

•For the Buyer - it is important to me that I understand exactly what you are looking for and never wasting your valuable time. For example, if you wish to purchase a 'fixer,' I will find the property that fits your level of expertise such as a simple cosmetic project or, perhaps, a dramatic renovation.  No matter the type of property (foreclosures, short sales, vineyard estates, coastal real estate, income real estate, investment real estate, condominiums, and more), I will keep an eye to the costs and viability of the investment. I monitor foreclosures, short sales, and other excellent investments: notifying clients as soon as a great deal hits the market.

•For the Seller – you will receive: a comprehensive comparable market analysis; a customized market plan including extensive internet advertising as well as local and regional advertising; and consistent, direct broker contact updates on your listing and real estate market conditions. For short sales, our office has a team in place to process your short sale professionally and efficiently

•Concierge services - to address your needs from our first contact and thereon. My services do not end at escrow and I will continue to be available to you for questions and issues. I maintain a list of resources and vendors to enhance your real estate investment.

I have been a real estate agent for more than 25 years with experience in listing and sale of income, commercial, land, and residential property. I have managed income properties as well. Presently, I am both a real estate broker and City College of San Francisco real estate instructor. In the past, I initiated and developed two successful businesses, a real estate office and a San Francisco art gallery. The gallery received national and international recognition – featured in numerous notable publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Esquire, the San Francisco Examiner/Chronicle, and the Oakland Tribune as well as on television and radio both here and abroad.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Santa Rosa, CA.
We found Ronda through her ad on Zillow and chose her due to all the great reviews she had received. We had been working with another agent for about 6 months without ever putting an offer in, as none of the homes we saw matched our stated preferences. Within a week of working with Ronda, we put our first offer in, and four more offers to soon follow, and we had our very first home purchase within 2 months! Ronda listened to us to find out exactly what we wanted, the type of area, and what level of "fixer" we could handle. She found us a cute bungalow in a great neighborhood with lots of built-in equity, and kept us in the loop every step of the way. Ronda did not hold our hand through the first-time home buying experience, instead she put her arm firmly around us and deftly guided us along the way. In addition to being an experienced real estate broker, Ronda is a super nice person as well: a joy to work with!  MoreLess

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $600K in Santa Rosa, CA.
Ronda Smith is a great agent, and we highly recommended. We worked with Ronda from 2008 till we finally found our first home in 2010 (which we're still in). She is an upbeat, kind, knowledgeable professional. Additionally, she's a real estate instructor, so she knows all the ins and outs of the real estate industry thoroughly. She's probably the best real estate agent in the county. As the other person said Ronda is "ABOVE & BEYOND" any other real estate agent out there.  MoreLess

Bought a home in 2004.
Ronda worked very diligently and professionally in finding this house for us. She spent many hours researching potential houses that fit our needs and found us the perfect house. Much to my surprise, the entire process of buying a house (our first) proceeded without a hitch, thanks mainly to Ronda.
