After working for a couple years with ERA United Home Realty, I decided that I wanted to try something different than other agents. I saw that the Real Estate Industry was changing due to new technology and Realtor's weren't reflecting this in the commissions that they were charging people. After examining my work and the time it takes to sell a home, I decided to open my own company and list homes for the flat fee of $1,000. Unlike other flat fee firms however, my clients would receive full realty services for this fee.



My competitors will say that I can't provide you with the same services that they can, but that's simply not true and only an argument for you to pay them more money to sell your home when we are, in reality, going to give you the same service. I will give you the service that you deserve for an incredible low price b/c I'm more efficient at what I do. I know how to utilize the Internet, which is our best tool to sell your home. The days of homes being advertised in magazines, open houses and newspapers are over. The Internet is obviously the place people are searching for home. How else would you be reading this?



So, if you are thinking of selling your home, save money by listing your home with Smart Choice Realty. I promise you will be happy that you did. ;)

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Cary, NC.

Smart Choice Realty is definitely worth your business. Samara (the owner and sellers agent) was very good at explaining the process. She gave me great suggestions for staging my home and when the time came, took amazing pictures. I had great traffic to the house and it SOLD IN 7 DAYS!!! Comparable homes in the neighborhood sit on the market for months. I feel that Smart Choice made the difference. Jaymi (the buyers agent) was enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with. She walked us through the pros and cons of every house we looked at and always got back to us when we had questions. We were able to find the house of our dreams in a great neighborhood. She is a skilled negotiator and got us extra furniture and helped us beat out 2 other couples for the home. Behind the scenes, Jessica, is an amazing organizer and communicator. She makes sure everything is turned in on time and is always there to answer questions. I cannot recommend this company enough. They are worth every penny and more!  More Less

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Cary, NC.

Top-notch company. Smart Choice delivered everything a full-priced realtor delivers, but they delivered it better. Their sign was huge and attracted a LOT of drive-by attention. We were initially concerned that other realtors would shun showing our home because it wasn't listed with a standard 5%-6% fee company. NOT SO! We had lots of traffic and multiple buyers even entered into a bidding war, selling our home above asking price in less than 3 weeks. I cannot say enough about SmartChoice Realty or their staff. They were, by far, the easiest realty company we've ever dealt with - a professional operation. Five stars all the way.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Apex, NC.

We could not have found a more patient and accommodating duo than Samara and Jaymi. They work hard to help you find your new home and Jessica works as hard to get you into it. This team guided us through a time-consuming search, down the paper trail of securing a contract to the final closing. Thank you ladies!  More Less
