Testimonials for Kathy Smiley
"Kathy handled every detail of the lengthy and tedious process of the short sale with graciousness and aplomb. She showed keen attention to detail, a dedication to thoroughness, as well as strong commitmet to customer satisfaction. And all of this with a lovely sense of humor to boot! I would definately recommend and use Kathy's service again!"
Kathy is a true Real Estate professional, from beginning to finish. She expertly helped me with the pre-sale preparations to sell my home, arranged for fabulous photos, print & internet marketing, then built a sense of excitement and anticipation with the broker & buying community. We had multiple offers the first week, and because of her savvy negotiating skills, we ended up with $16,000 over our list price."
"Kathy helped us find a condo for my Mom and it is perfect. She looks after every detail and seems to work 24/7. She knows the community around Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village because she is "of" the community and serves it in many ways through volunteer work and helping local businesses. Kathy is the most professional realtor I have ever encountered. And she is cheerful and delightful to be with!"
“Kathy represented me on my most recent home purchase in Newbury Park, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with her service. She communicated with me every day, she followed up on every detail, she recommended a host of reliable and honest service providers, and made the whole experience run smoothly. I can’t recommend her enough!”

“When faced with the difficult decision to short sale our home, there was only one agent I would even consider with the task. Kathy proved to my wife and I that she is skilled, informed, precise, efficient, and most of all, she really cared about our feelings during the entire process. We are happily relocated now, and although short selling our family home was hard, Kathy’s caring attitude and attention to every detail made the process not only bearable, but even pleasant!”

"Thanks to Kathy, we successfully got full price for my late Mom’s home. Kathy held open houses, showed the home many times, scheduled repairs and servicing. Her marketing was top notch and the service we received exceeded our expectations.”
"Kathy listed our home in Westlake Village and helped us find and secure our replacement home in the Trails. She did an outstanding job of juggling both transactions. Her attention to detail and timely attention were exactly what we needed to get through what was a difficult process. Thank you, Kathy!”
"Kathy helped me sell one home and buy another. Both went through very quickly and at fair value. She provided a lot of helpful guidance through the whole process, including references to contractors for a few fix-ups. We discussed many options, including pros and cons of renting out the old home. I was impressed with her knowledge of the whole process and the area. I really enjoyed working with Kathy, trust her advice, and would work only with her in the future."
