Fred is the best, don't buy or sell a property without him! He and his group go above and beyond in making the process easy. I have used Fred to buy and sell multiple properties and have had great results each time.

Despite restrictions upon my wife and I's scheduled visit to Birmingham, Fred Smith was extremely helpful in assisting us "soup to nuts" (i.e. from finding the house through the closing). He was attentive in addressing our needs and listened to all of our home purchase goals during the process. As new residents to Greater Birmingham, we could not have been more lucky and satisfied than working with the Fred Smith Group.

We were so happy with Fred. He was our 3rd realtor in trying to sell our house. He followed through with every marketing strategy he promised (previous 2 had not) and sold our house! When we go to buy our next house, we will definitely use Fred!

Fred and his team recently spent a few months with my family to help us purchase a new home. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Fred and his entire group. They did a wonderful job of communicating with each other as team members and with us, and they were always willing to rearrange their schedules to meet with us on the spur of the moment or for a last minute showing. Each team member is professional, efficient, and knowledgeable about the Birmingham real estate and market. With each showing, they were able to point out ideas us determine why each particular house might or might not be a good fit for our family. The Fred Smith Group has good working relationships with other realtors in town. They were able to recommend people and businesses necessary to assist us in the closing process and helped make sure home insurance, home warranty, etc were all in the place in a timely manner. Throughout this process, we have come to know Fred and each of his team members as friends in addition to our professional relationship.

We have already begun to highly recommended The Fred Smith Group to our family and friends and will continue to do so in the future.

Fred helped us sell our old home and buy our current one. You won't find a more knowledgable agent in this town. His staff provides support and helps you through paperwork and all the details. Fred is the only agent I recommend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Birmingham, AL.
We met Fred 12 years before this listing when he showed us a house and thought the world of his knowledge of homes in the area. Fred was really great throughout the entire process. He did a great job making a solid recommendation for the right listing price based upon market knowledge and comparibles. Fred had a great web presence and drove potential buyers to our home with his staging and listing skills. He brought the right buyers to the table who love their new home and we were able to sell it at a fair price that was right at our goal. Furthermore, Fred did a great job through some pretty tough moments with sage advice and/or valuable answers.

Fred was amazing. Great working with him. He helped my wife and I find our first home. He showed us a lot of great homes and helped us work through the long process of buying a bank foreclosed house. I would strongly recommend him for his market knowledge and responsiveness. Thank you Fred!

We have worked with Fred for many years, and on several transactions, both buying and selling, and he and his team are among the best in the business. He's a Birmingham native who knows the area, as a broker with several associate agents working with him, he has the experience and resources to get every job done, and he offers the assurance of a win for everyone involved in negotiations, setting both sides at ease but ultimately keeping his client's needs as primary. You can't do better in the Birmingham area!
