Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Piedmont, OK.
I had an unique home that took all his expertise to help sell the house and property. He worked hard to make the experience work. Darrell was easy to get on the phone and kept iin touch by text and email. He was always willing to return phone calls and we were able to work together very well.
When my wife and i decided to sell our first home we met with several potential selling agents, but ultimately decided on Darrell Smith as he appeared to us to be the most knowledgeable and low pressure agent we met. Within two days of hiring Darrell, our house was listed on all the .com sites, a for sale sign w/ info tube was in our front yard and Darrell sent an email to approximately 300 realtors to let them know our house was on the market. We told Darrell how much we owed and what we expected to sell the house for and he advised us on how to set a price for our house that would compensate for potential offers where a buyer would expect closing costs to be paid by the sellers. Within the first week, Darrell arranged 4 showings of our house and by the end of the third week we had on offer in hand that was only a few thousand short of full price. We were ready to accept the initial offer, but Darrel shrewdly advised us to counter back to full price and pay 3% to closing, which the buyers accepted. Without Darrell, I am confident we would have sold our house for less than it was ultimately worth. When my wife and I were ready to reenter the real estate market as buyers, we called Darrell again. He has vast knowledge of the OKC and surrounding market (Edmond, Moore, Yukon). He patiently took us to view approximately 35 houses before we found ‘the one’. At every showing, Darrell came w/ comps, a sales and tax history as well as school information. We were never rushed at any viewing and Darrell never once appeared put out or annoyed after consecutive weeks of us not finding the house we wanted. Once we did find the home for us, Darrell again advised us on how to make an offer in a fashion that would return a counter offer we were willing to accept. Again, I am fully confident that Darrell’s advice saved us thousands on the purchase price of our new home. Darrell is a genuinely nice man who works with the interest of his clients as his first priority. He will be honest and up front with you every step of the way. I would recommend Darrell to friends or family without hesitation.
Darrell spent a great deal of time with me and my wife as we looked for our first home. He took us on tours of numerous houses, almost a dozen, and helped us find just the right one at a location midway between our two places of employment. He met us at our convenience and was truly a fine advocate for us through the negotiations. He helped us land at a really good price, and continued to be a resource to us after we signed on the dotted line. I have already recommended him to friends, as has my wife.
My dealings with other realtors have never been as easy as with Darrell. He not only found the right home for me, he gave me options that no one else offered. Darrell made the whole process so easy. Walked me thru every step. I am not only using him for future purchases, I am recommending him to family as well. He has kept in contact and even given my family a housewarming gift. Nice touch. Thanks Darrell.
Darrell has been such a great realtor! He has listed my home and is currently helping me find a new one. He is extremely knowledgeable on everything that goes into buying and selling a home. He is honest and always has my best interest at heart. I have LOTS of questions and he is so patient with me and quick to give a response that I can understand. I cannot imagine working with anyone else!
