Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in San Marcos, CA.
Dennis Smith was my agent for a recent investment home purchase. I am an out of town investor who required an experienced, honest and trustworthy real estate professional. Dennis delivered. During my short trip to North County, we evaluated several houses that fit my criteria and I submitted an offer. We reached agreement and the deal closed while I was out of town, which required that I rely on Dennis to take care of many of the details I could not personally take care of. In every instance, Dennis followed through on his word. I never once felt like he left a detail unattended to. In addition, he reminded and prompted me of upcoming actions I would need to take and explained the process thoroughly. If I were to buy another property in North County San Diego, I would use Dennis as my agent and will recommend him to friends and family.
Sold a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $2.825M in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.
I have known Dennis Smith for over 20 years. His listening skills and extensive knowledge of North County San Diego made him the perfect real estate professional to help me find, negotiate and purchase a home in Rancho Santa Fe. Although it was a complicated transaction everything went smoothly thanks to Dennis' people skills and attention to detail. Later, when it came time to sell the home the listing decision was easy, because Dennis Smith gets the job done! You will find Dennis Smith honorable, thorough and results-oriented. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.
Bought a Condo home in 2004 for approximately $275K in Oceanside, CA.
In the past 8 years my husband and I have purchased 3 homes in Oceanside, California with the help of Dennis Smith, California Licensed Realtor. We highly recommend him and have been very satisfied in the quality of his service.
Obviously, turning to Dennis Smith for help with 3 home purchases meant we must have liked something about his professionalism. The first word that comes to mind in describing Dennis’s style is patient. He spent a lot of time with us researching properties and showing them to us. He is honest and knowledgeable. He would narrow the scope of the listings he would send us through the Internet based on our preferences and would come prepared when we met to view the listings we were interested in. If we had any concerns he would go the extra mile and check things out for us. His priority was always in our interests and took his ethical responsibilities seriously.
We have now known Dennis for over 8 years and are so grateful for his assistance we plan to continue our relationship with him and have him represent us as our selling agent when that time comes.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2009 for approximately $375K in Encinitas, CA.
Dennis and Sunshine Smith are the best real estate agents I have ever had the pleasure working with. Dennis has a lot of resources at his finger tips to get you the best price weather you are buying or selling. In my book they are top negotiators and the service is second to none. They keep you up to date every step of the way. They are not just agents. You will find that you will build a relationship with then and become friends. I have known Dennis and Sunshine for about 12 years now and I would never consider using anybody but then for any of my real estate needs.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Oceanside, CA.
My wife and I live in Encinitas, a small coastal city in San Diego County. In December of 2010 we decided to investigate the possibility of purchasing a second home as a rental property investment. Although we own almost outright the home we live in, we had not been in the market as a buyer for some time, and were totally unfamiliar with the difficulties in dealing with short sales, bank owned properties and foreclosures, which have been dominating the market in recent years. We could see that to travel through this mine field of detail and come out with a property that would give us a good investment and a bottom line monthly profit was going to be very difficult. We needed someone with experience and expertise who could be our pilot in this new endeavor; someone with a solid reputation and full knowledge of the local and general real estate market. Luckily we knew Dennis and Sunshine Smith at RE/MAX By The Sea, who have been doing real estate in the North San Diego County area for 18 years. From beginning to end they were a trustworthy and dependable source of guidance and support without which we never would have succeeded. To say that their customer service was outstanding is an understatement. They gave us such a high degree of attention that we truly felt part of amazingly solid team. From their clearly superior skill in effectively communicating and negotiating with other real estate professionals to best serve our interests, to their personal loyalty and honesty, we were impressed beyond words. We ended up successful with an offer on a short sale property, and went through all the complicated intricacies involved with the transaction. Dennis and Sunshine held our hand every step of the way. We can't thank them enough for steering us so thoughtfully through a process that at times was stressful, but in which we learned so much about this new venture we were entering. We now own a great rental property in Oceanside CA, which is giving us a positive cash flow. Now that we look back, we can honestly say that bringing in Dennis and Sunshine was one of the best decisions we've made. But above all else, what we appreciate the most, is the atmosphere of friendship that was always so evident, one that we will always cherish.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Otay Ranch, Chula Vista, CA.
Dennis was fantastic. This was a military move for us from another
state so we were unfamiliar with the neighborhoods here in San Diego.
Being out of state also meant we could not view potential homes in
person. Dennis went to each house we liked that was in our price range
and took videos and pictures for us to view from our home in
Washington. We found our perfect home in Otay Ranch this way. Dennis
is truly an amazing agent and we will use him again when we move. He
even followed up with us 3 months later to make sure everything was
still going well.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $225K in Fallbrook, CA.
We were first time homebuyers with little to no knowledge of what it takes to get a home bought but we were walked through the process very informatively and effectively. Sandiegohome4 responded to every question and call wthin 12 hours and all with expertise and information to assist us with all the worries we had.
I would highly recommend Dennis Smith as a real estate agent. I just completed a short sale of my house in Carlsbad, CA. After 2 yrs of unsuccessfully working with my bank to refinance my house, Dennis was able to sell my house is less than 2 months. His knowledge of the local market and overall short sale process proved invaluable. His team was knowledgeable, professional and extremely responsive throughout the entire process. They took the time to explained what to expect beforehand, laid out a clear timeline, and stayed close to ensure all required steps were completed successfully. From initial marketing to bank negotiations to final closing, Dennis and his team were top-notch.
