This is what our clients have to say about our services.
I have been an investor in rental properties for 13 years now. I recently sold my four-plex building with Smoger Realty. Smoger Realty knows the rental property/investment properties very well (market valuation, lease rates, tenant leases, construction costs, etc). I felt very confident from the beginning of the process to the closing table. The entire transaction was handled with extreme professionalism and skilled competence. I highly recommend Smoger Realty to any investor looking to buy or sell real estate investment properties. I look forward to my next transaction with Smoger Realty.
Yahoo! ... My house has closed officially... 32 days from when it was placed on the market to $$ in the bank - awesome job from Smoger Realty.. Thank you Lia Wilson and Ilene J. Smoger for all the advice & guidance in getting the house ready, sifting through contracts and spearheading negotiations... Class act!
When it came time for my wife and I to buy our first home, it would be one of the most important decisions of our lives. We also assumed it be just as stressful. Luckily, we knew Ilene Smoger from being our landlord for the previous 2 years and based on that relationship it was an easy decision to work with her as our real-estate agent. Ilene really paid attention to our wants and needs in a home and was able to focus on those to show us the best available options and never wasted our time with things she knew would not work for us. One of the best things about working with her was the ease of communication in that she always responded quickly to our requests or questions. Being new homeowners, we didn't always have a keen eye for what to watch out for in a prospective home, so Ilene was never afraid to offer her expertise and a few opinions to steer us in the right direction. Although there were the understandable bumps in the road, Smoger Realty made the home-buying process as stress-free and fun as possible.
When we decided to relocate from Houston to Fort Worth we knew we were going to need a strong realtor to help us get through the process. We were switching jobs, locations, and pregnant with our second child all at the same time. Lia Wilson was the best realtor to help us get everything we needed accomplished. She was so helpful, professional, and timely in everything we needed or asked her to do. We knew that if we had any questions along the way that she would answer them quickly and make sure we understood everything that was going on. She listened to all of our desires for our new home and found us the perfect one for our growing family. We feel blessed to have been able to work with Lia and have her help us find our new home!
After happily renting from Ilene for over 3 years, my husband and I finally had the means to buy our own home. When we notified Ilene, she offered her services as our real estate agent and since my husband and I did not have any other connections, we took her up on her offer. Best decision ever! Ilene was always available to show us a property or answer our questions about a particular area. She set up a very user-friendly portal for us, where we had access to new listings/updates immediately (even before some third parties, like Redfin or Zillow). We had no idea what to "watch out for" in a new home, but Ilene did. She was able to point out everything from the model of the water heater and if it was a decent one to the cost of the upgrades in the house to fun facts about the particular neighborhood. She is a wealth of knowledge, and it made us feel so much more comfortable having her look at almost every house with us. In addition to having her real estate license, she is also a lawyer, so she made sure all the paperwork was perfect (we had to go through several offers to finally land our dream home in such a hot market) and thoroughly explained any of the confusing parts to us. We WOULD NOT have gotten the house we did without Ilene's help. We are so grateful for Smoger Realty!
We were referred to Ilene and Lia through a friend, and it was the best thing to happen to us. Once we found a home, Ilene and Lia went above and beyond to get us in there. The history of the home was complicated to say the least. Unpaid labor, an uncooperative title company, an unresolved lawsuit, and an ex wife who still owned half of the home from the previous sale were just a few of the things that Ilene and Lia were able to take care of. I don't believe anyone else could have gotten us through this process. They worked diligently to get us into our first home, and we couldn't be more grateful.
