Testimonials

Where do I begin? Stephanie’s professionalism, attention to detail, awareness of the market and exceptional execution from beginning to end is something you dream of in a real estate agent —and with Stephanie you get all of that plus an effervescent personality with a fantastic attitude! I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience with Stephanie was. From the moment I met her, I felt comfortable handing her the keys, and she was ever so gracious to handle everything since I was traveling extensively from the time my property was listed right up until it sold. Stephanie was totally in tune with the market and was able to clearly convey the points I needed to consider so I’d feel confident about every aspect of the process. From the offers I received to the agreed upon sale price, Stephanie made what can be a tedious and trying process into such a pleasant experience that my assistant and I missed her tremendously after the property sale was completed. Obviously for me, a 5 star rating still seems underrated, so let me sum it up by saying that Stephanie is the exceptional choice for those who want the best of the best. – Helga


We had a great experience working with Stephanie. She made buying our home an enjoyable and easy experience. Quick to respond and will do anything to help, we highly recommend Stephanie! – The Shah Family


Stephanie helped us with our real estate needs. It was our first time buying a home and she was super patient and attentive. We had a small budget and a lot of restrictions financially and she was able to work around all of that and find us a home we absolutely love! She also got us a great deal!!! We came in BELOW the budget we gave her! Steph really put our needs first and she advocated for us as though she was advocating for herself or her family (she made us feel like a part of her family!) she sacrificed a lot of weekends to work around our schedule. And she always checks up on us to make sure we’re doing good. If we have any questions about our home or home insurance, she’s always been super responsive in getting back to us with any info we may need which is not something most agents would do! If and when we decide to sell our home and find a bigger home, Steph is ABSOLUTELY the only person we will work with to do so!! I can say so many great things about her! She is amazing and we were really fortunate to have found her when we did. – Sunny


Stephanie is a consummate professional who found me the house I wanted. It wasn’t easy and we looked at so many places until we found the one that would be home. The escrow process was extremely challenging however she kept me calm and walked me though the entire process and dealt with every issue that came our way. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone looking to find the House of their dreams! – Greg


Stephanie Smith was, hands down, the best real estate agent I have ever worked with (I am 55 and this was the fourth home I purchased). She is extremely knowledgeable about real estate…from soup to nuts. From finding a home (she was motivated to get a home that met our needs and not by commission which is what I find drives 95% of agents) to closing. She strongly and expertly negotiated everything on my behalf. Throughout my search, purchase and close, Stephanie was EXTREMELY responsive!!! My emails and phone calls were returned within minutes. A true professional. The end result was my dream house and an incredible deal. I very strongly recommend Stephanie. She “gets it”. – Mary


I believe that Stephanie has set a new bar for all realtors. We have bought and sold many homes and I can say with confidence that the level of service that Stephanie provided was unparalleled. Our home was listed for lease through another agent for almost 6 months with very little activity. We gave Stephanie the listing and she found us a tenant in a matter of weeks (at a higher listing price). She went about and beyond to help us in every way, from staging, photography, to promotion. Thank you again Stephanie and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with you and your amazing team. – Darren


Stephanie helped us with the sale of an estate home. From the beginning we knew Stephanie was listening carefully to our needs and following our wishes. She was available to us at all times and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Stephanie went above and beyond to assist us. She was appropriately aggressive in getting us multiple offers in a short period of time. We were thrilled to accept an offer above asking. It was a pleasure working with a realtor who was so supportive and provided excellent counsel. We know we made the right decision in choosing Stephanie as our realtor! – Mary


Stephanie Smith and her partner Gina Dickerson recently helped me to sell my beautiful estate home in Westlake Village, CA. From inception to closing, they catered to all of my needs and did so with class. All showings and open house occurrences were well planned and beautifully orchestrated. They spared absolutely no expense on their marketing plan and advertising materials. Ever mindful of my privacy and the contents of the home, all showings were conducted with our best interest in mind. Escrow documents were delivered and executed with simple e-signatures and all paperwork was meticulously prepared. Even after closing, these dedicated ladies took the time to assist with my move and offered insight of future housing opportunities. Simply stated, you will night find a better team in the greater Los Angeles area to meet your luxury real estate needs. – Colin


Stephanie worked diligently with me to purchase 3 separate properties, all from difficult sellers, and handled numerous difficult situations. She was always professional and prompt in communication with me and all the other parties, including the sellers, escrow, banks and all others involved in the transaction. Very happy with Stephanie and recommend highly, will work with her again on the next property. – Brendon


Stephanie sold our home in Bell Canyon Ca in 20 days over asking. Stephanie is a realtor all others should aspire to be. On time every time educated us thru the entire processes negotiated us a great deal. I highly recommend Stephanie Smith with Coldwell Banker our Realtor for life. – Nick


I recently moved to the Malibu area and Stephanie came highly recommended by a colleague. I was not disappointed. Her knowledge of the area and persistence in finding my perfect home could not be matched. She worked tirelessly to find what seemed like an impossible list of must-haves. She didn’t make me settle, but continued to help me find the perfect fit for me. Stephanie helped me navigate the California closing process and with her help it was much easier than expected. I would definitely recommend Stephanie as a buying agent. Based on my experience with this purchase, I would definitely consider her in representing my home should I ever decided to sell. – Bob


I worked with Stephanie to represent my home and I was not disappointed. She was very professional and provided excellent customer service. She went above and beyond my expectations based on my experience with other agents. She provided me with information up front so that there were no surprises throughout the process. She helped stage my home so that it would look its best for a quick sale. She negotiated on my behalf like she owned my home, which was a nice change from what I’ve dealt with on other homes. I would highly recommend Stephanie and you will not be disappointed if you have her represent you. – Leo


It was our pleasure to work with Stephanie in finding our home! Her expertise, professionalism and can-do attitude resulted in a very pleasurable experience. She is quite capable and her tenacious but pleasant approach to searching for the home we were looking for in a very competitive market were excellent. Stephanie was able to translate our ambiguous home preferences into reality! She not only found our home in a very short time but she took time to monitor the progress with the escrow and closing process quickly overcoming each obstacle encountered with persistence professionalism. Due to her strong negotiation skills we were able to get the home we wanted within the budget parameters we provided. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a home in this tough real estate market. – Jenny


Stephanie worked diligently with her all throughout the process of selling my home for the price I wanted. I would highly recommend her as an agent, and would love to work with her in any future transactions. Thank you!!! – Don


I very very very highly, without any reservation, recommend Stephanie Smith to be your real estate broker. Stephanie sold my high end Malibu property when the other “top brokers” could not. And not by chance. Stephanie worked arduously, persistently, professionally, in faultlessly representing my interests as though she were family. I trusted her because she is trustworthy and understood from the start the fiduciary responsibility I entrusted her with. She will, I am certain, earn this trust with everyone she represents. And that is the most important thing one can demand from their broker. She understands this at her core. Stephanie is proactive and won’t just sit waiting for a buyer to contact her. She seeks out your buyer thru relentless research and contacts. Stephanie is a lovely, warm, intelligent, and highly competent woman. A joy to be with during the process of selling your home. – Donald


Stephanie Smith is an expert real estate sales person. She knows the Malibu area, especially the Deer Creek Area better than anyone. I had my home listed for 4 years with hardly any showings. Then I found Stephanie, or she found me and she did several showings right away and sold my difficult to sell home in only a few weeks. She whisked us thru escrow only as a professional could. Normally I can find something negative in every event but as far as Stephanie Smith goes, she is one good real estate sales person. Her broker is also a true professional who can solve difficult problems in a single phone call. Stephanie is the GREATEST! – Lloyd


Stephanie’s resourcefulness, persistence and perseverance with overcoming difficult negotiation obstacles and succeeding with complex and sophisticated real estate transactions is outstanding! Her communicative skills and ability to listen and convert a buyer’s home vision into a reality is superb. Stephanie’s effervescent and pleasing personality is the “icing on the cake” for anyone looking for a well-informed, well-connected and fair minded real estate agent. It was indeed a sincere pleasure working with Stephanie and her team with selling our home. We are extremely grateful for her attention to detail and her unselfish willingness to walk us through this highly complex real estate market. It is our pleasure to recommend her and look forward to working with her again for our future real estate needs. – Bill


Stephanie is not only a joy to work with, but also great at what she does. She is part of that 1% of real estate agents who truly know the business. It was a pleasure and productive working with her. – Greg


Stephanie worked tirelessly with me to close a house under difficult circumstances, I was very appreciative for her hard work and vigilance in assisting me with this purchase, I would highly recommend Stephanie. – Brendan


Stephanie is helping us research homes in the Malibu area while we we’re living out of state. She has been very professional and helpful in guiding us in the area. She listens to our needs and keeps us current with the various options on a daily basis so that no opportunity would be missed. She has given us a tremendous amount of her time to show properties to us while we visited to accommodate our travel schedule. She had everything all lined up so we had the opportunity to see as many homes as we could while we were there. We entrust her to review and negotiate any paperwork so that we just need to sign on the dotted line. She is helping make our transition as easy as possible and has found us some great potential homes. – TJ
