Get to know Kristin D. Smith
I came into real estate in April of 2007. I had been working in the new construction field as an office manager for a local, family-run company that has been in business for nearly 20 years. As their OM, I answered phones, created cost breakdowns, scheduled inspections, and did some of the accounting tasks that a business like that requires. I also have over 10 years of experience in the Direct Sales market, and have found that all the skills that I learned in that endeavor has only enhanced my experience in real estate. I enjoy working with buyers and sellers that are looking to move in the Linn County Oregon area.

I feel that our current market conditions have actually helped me in my business. Since I have never been a part of a "good" market, I have had to work extra hard to learn the right things to do. I am pleased with my production so far (though I am always aspiring to do better) and am encouraged & excited about my potential when the market turns around again. I work my professional business full time and consider it my career. I'm constantly going to trainings to further my knowledge and capabilities, and then putting what I learned into action, as opposed to taking in knowledge and then continuing to do things that haven't worked in the past. I am known in my brokerage as one who "thinks outside the box" and will take a new idea & "run" with it.
I have a great team of resources that I am in constant contact with, including multiple mortgage lenders/brokers, a stager, inspectors and other industry professionals. In addition to networking with the other brokers in our firm, I also network heavily with many of the local real estate companies in Albany, and am well respected by my peers.

I especially like to work with sellers that want their home sold quickly. Unfortunately, in the current market, there is no room for "playing around". The homes that are priced the best, are the ones being sold quickly. I recently had a buyer comment to me, "Everyone keeps saying that it's a bad market, but all the properties that I find and like, are already sold!" So if getting your home sold is the result you want, give me a call. I'd love to share with you my techniques to getting a home sold!
Additionally, I enjoy working with buyers that are ready to move within the next 30-60 days. I have a specific path that I will take you on as a buyer that will help you to have the best possibility of having your offer accepted right away. Call today: 541-497-6510, to schedule your appointment. For customers who are just beginning to think that they may want to buy, I have another program to help you prepare for the fantastic opportunity of home ownership. Whether you're a first time homebuyer or already have owned a home, I have valuable information for you. Drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll begin your journey to a new home.
I'm excited to get to know YOU!
