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!

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.

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!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Cary, NC.

Samara and Jessica were very efficient, professional, and dependable. They were both available when we needed them and they both worked with us diligently to help achieve our goals both with selling our house and buying a new one. Samara is a great negotiator and is very persistent. I would definitely 100% recommend Smart Choice Realty if you plan to sell and buy a house!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Chapel Hill, NC.

I cannot say enough good things about this company. We have bought and sold by owner 6 times and have never had an MLS service that has done so much for us. The pictures advertising our home were very professional and brought our buyers from out of state in 2 weeks. Smart Choice assisted in the negotiations and closing and everything in between. All of this for no extra charge! The communication was excellent even on weekends and Holidays. We saved over $16,000 in closing costs!! What a great experience in what is potentially a very stressful time.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Northwest Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

I was riding around looking for townhouses when I saw Samara's sign and gave her a call. We were lucky I did because we were extremely satisfied with her and believe we could not have chosen better. She worked constantly with us on looking for just what we wanted. When we found the right property she was very helpful through the entire closing process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Northwest Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

Samara and Jessica just helped me by a townhouse. They were totally professional and helped me through out the process. I don't know why anyone would go anywhere else to buy or sell a property.

Bought a home in 2012.

My wife and I really lucked out when Jessica Hunt met us to show a Smart Choice listing. We were just beginning our house search and had not settled on an agent as yet. Our relationship with Jessica grew from that first meeting and it was soon clear that Jessica was very professional, knowledgeable, and always had our best interests at heart. She never tried to push us in any direction or selection, but listened to our requirements and desires and did everything she could to meet them. At times the process was arduous but with Jessica helping us each step of the way it went smoothly. In short, we ended up with a great house in a great location. I can't imagine going through this with anyone but Jessica.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $50K in Fuquay Varina, NC.

My Wife and I bought our very first home this past Jan 2012. Jessica Hunt was our realtor, and not only did we get the house of our dreams, but we also got it at an OUTSTANDING price thanks to her amazing Negotiation skills! Jessica was very caring and understanding to all of our needs. We can be very needy people and Jessica did not miss a beat. She was very attentive and Just A joy to wok with. She explained the entire process in such a way that it made it soo much easier for us to really understand everything. SShe listened to every detail to the T. and it reflected because all the houses we saw were houses that we could see ourdelf living in. All my family and friends were sooo impressed on how smooth everything went. We started looking at houses every other week-end except on holidays of course, Nov.2011 and by Jan2012 we closed on our dream house. We are truly glad to have chosen Smart Choice realty and Jessica Hunt as our Realtor. It was simply the right choice. I recomend her to Everyone. She is Simply Amazing.
