Testimonials

“My husband and I have tried to sell our home "For Sale By Owner" for over a year. We retired and wanted to downsize to our condo at Bordeaux Village. We renovated our condo from top to bottom to make it just what we wanted. After a year, and no results, we took our home off the market. We did not enlist a realtor as we had many friends and family members who were in the industry....I wasn't going to choose. BUT.... we prayed and made the decision to stay in our wonderful neighborhood with terrific neighbors and space for our grandchildren. We're selling the condo! We decided, NO MORE DITHERING ABOUT!!! HIRE THE BEST!!! And we did! We hired Maggie and Dave Smith of ReMax. Maggie was our compass who guided us through the process . After only 4 days on the MLS, we had a buyer!!!! I got to keep my home and my neighbors! Thank you Maggie for your professional advice, your calm guidance and continually keeping us updated on where we were in the process. You went above and beyond. AND BEYOND! AND BEYOND! Thank you so very much. Anyone wanting to sell their Feather Sound property, just go with the BEST the first time. Maggie and Dave Smith.” - Lisa and Lonnie

 

"Maggie, thank you and Dave so much for your hard word and excellent marketing job. I know this sale has been a long time coming, but it was really easy once we got it listed. We appreciate your help, professionalism, and friendship & look forward to a celebratory dinner downtown sometime soon!"  - Mo and Donna

 

“I have worked with Dave & Maggie a few times over the years and have always been impressed with their level of professionalism, knowledge and integrity.  However, my most recent home purchase proved just how absolutely incredible these two are.  Due to a personal tragedy, I was purchasing a home on my own for the first time ever; which was scary and overwhelming for me. Maggie helped me through the entire process and literally handled everything as if she were buying the home for herself.  She thought of things that I wouldn't have, protected me from things that could have turned out badly and in the end I wound up with a fabulous house without being stressed out that I was missing something or doing something that would come back to haunt me later. Maggie and Dave are top notch realtors, but more importantly, they are top notch human beings.” - LeAnn

 

“Maggie was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had talked to a couple other realtors in the area with no success before someone told me about Dave & Maggie. I’m so happy I found them! As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and concerns and Maggie was there to answer every single one of them. She and her team went above and beyond, not just efficiently handling all the logistics, but also guiding me step-by-step through the home buying process and providing extra tips along the way. Maggie treated me the same as if I were a million dollar sale and that is something that's hard to find in an agent. I knew I was in safe hands and I can’t imagine having gone through this process without her. Thanks so much Maggie!” - Samantha

 

“We purchased a town home from a client of Dave's without a real estate agent of our own. Dave seemingly worked tirelessly for us as well as for his client to make sure the transaction went smoothly. He willingly gave of his time and resources to make sure any discrepancies in the home inspection that we wanted fixed were taken care of. He constantly kept us informed as to the progress of repairs and made himself available to us whenever we needed to visit the property. A delight to work with, he definitely went above and beyond his normal responsibilities to us during this entire process. A true professional! I know we have said it many times, but once again Dave, thank you so much for everything you did for us during this process.” - Buddy and Susan



“Dave and Maggie are the ultimate professionals in the real estate business.They service you with understanding and compassion to your needs, friendliness and sincere interest in your buying or selling a home. I would never think of using anyone else and would recommend them as your realtors.” - Gene and Nancy

 

“Couldn't have been happier with the service. Both Dave and Maggie are wonderful to work with and our purchase went smooth as silk. We highly recommend their service and would use them again in a heartbeat.” - Trish and Danny

 

“We now live in our dream home because of Maggie and Dave Smith.  We are very thankful to have met them and appreciate everything they did for our family.  We worked with Maggie and Dave for around five months, looking at A LOT of homes.  They were extremely knowledgeable and professional.  Never once were they sales oriented.  They were really more like personal consultants who walk you through every step of the transaction.


Our transaction was fairly complicated for a variety of factors.  Maggie and Dave came up with a solution to get the deal done - one which we did not think was possible.  Because they do a lot of transactions in the area, they were able to draw on a network of professionals in a relatively quick fashion to ensure we closed quickly (e.g. Home inspectors, mortgage brokers, etc.)

Having been involved in 12+ residential real estate transactions, we can assure you, you will not find better agents than Dave and Maggie Smith.”  - Mike and Candis

 

“I was recently in the market to purchase a new home. I contacted Dave Smith, who was the listing agent on one of the properties I was looking at. Within five minutes of our introduction, I knew that I wanted him to be both my selling and buying agent. Dave and Maggie are as professional as it gets. I was, quite frankly, amazed at their knowledge of real estate matters. Every question I had was answered immediately and thoroughly. What impressed me most was their responsiveness and attention to detail. Every time I texted Dave with an issue, he responded right away and the issue was quickly resolved. From inspectors to home repair professionals they know everyone in the business and everyone says the same thing - they are excellent. They sold my house in less than 72 hours and I could not have been more pleased with the terms. With them, it was a stress-free process. If you are looking for a real estate professional, look no further than Dave and Maggie. You will not be disappointed.” - Donny

 

“Good Morning Maggie, thanks for the notification that closing has been completed. We very much appreciate your attention and prompt communication throughout the process of selling this property. I know it is a small transaction for you, but you treated my mom great-you truly represented your profession and your business well. We are so appreciative.” - Dennis

 

“Maggie Smith is a consummate professional. This is my second sales transaction with Maggie. Our last property was a more difficult property that we tried to sell by owner for the first 6 months. We needed more traffic and Maggie assured me she would get it sold -- and she did. Dave & Maggie don't just list your home and wait for another agent/broker to come along with a buyer. They really know the MARKETING side of the business and really SELL for you. That's what made it happen.”  - Mark

 

“We were fortunate to work with Maggie Smith.  With her, we had contact with Dave Smith and Carole Crisp. The team delivered, and we have purchased a lovely home, that Maggie knew would be perfectly suited to us. In addition to the expertise that we ranked above, the team had patience and concern.  We would not hesitate to work with Dave & Maggie Smith again.  Also, we would feel quite comfortable referring buyers and sellers to Dave, Maggie and Carole.  A fine team that works hard to have their clients feel supported, significant and special.”  - Donna

 

“I highly recommend using Dave and Maggie Smith. Dave was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and really had my back through the entire buying process. He was extremely experienced, patient, and responsive to any questions or concerns I had. From start to finish, even after closing with referrals to great home improvement resources. He is a rare find in terms of experience, ethics and follow-through compared to other realtors I had previously spoken with!”  - Julie

 

“Just sold our townhome through Dave and Maggie. They both did a great job! We got good advice on our listing price, advertised our specific unit, handled our potential buyers very well, and followed up through to closing. I could not of asked for better people to represent us as agents.” - Paul

 

“Dave and Maggie sold a house for us in Clearwater in 2001 Helped me purchase a Condo in Clearwater in 2001 Sold that Condo for me (in 3 days in a down condo market) in 2011 Helped me purchase a Home in Oldsmar in 2011 They are the best.....EVER. Period.”  - Al

 

"Dave and Maggie are an excellent team, and go-to realtors in Feather Sound. They represented the seller when we purchased our first home in Feather Sound, and then we engaged them to represent us when we sold that home and purchased another Feather Sound home. They were patient with our needs and wants, and regularly kept us informed.  They let us know when we were being reasonable, and when we weren't.  We happily recommend Dave and Maggie, and would certainly use them should we decide to sell or buy property again in the future."

 

“We had a great experience with Dave & Maggie Smith. We started our search focusing on the Feather Sound neighborhood. Frankly, no one knows the area better than Dave & Maggie. They constantly had our best interest in mind. From the various searches to closing, Dave was always available to address our questions. We would work with Dave & Maggie in the future.” - Ashley and Jonathan

 

“Highly recommend Dave and Maggie Smith. Genuinely nice people, very professional, timely, knowledgeable and patient! We have used them for two real estate transactions in the past three years and very satisfied.” - Jim and Jean

 

“Dave and Maggie understood our needs and were very helpful in advising us on what was required to be able to sell our condo at a favorable price. Their service team is excellent in handling the closing documents and working with the buyer's inexperienced, novice agent.” - KFK

 

“Being first-time home buyers, my husband and I weren’t familiar with the home buying process but Dave made it so easy.  He was very patient with us and really took the time to explain everything and help us find the perfect new home.  We really felt like we were in good hands throughout the entire process!  I would absolutely work with Dave and Maggie again in the future!!”  - Lindsay and Bob

 

Maggie Smith could not have been nicer, nor more professional.  Her initiative put the buyer and owner together.  The sale went very smoothly and expeditiously from that point on.  Many thanks to Maggie for all of her efforts.  She exemplifies why using a qualified Realtor is always the best investment one can have!” - Ronald

 

“Dave and Maggie are honest, open and easy to work with.  We highly recommend them and often wish they could be our realtors in Virginia as we seek to sell our “summer” home and move in to our forever home that they helped us acquire.  This process would not have been as easy as it was without the help of Dave and Maggie Smith.”  - Fran and Ivan

 

“To say that Dave and Maggie go “above and beyond” is an understatement.  During the inspection of the home we sold, a bee hive was discovered in the attic.  Not only did Maggie call around to find the best person to handle the problem, but she spent an entire day at our house while the bee keeper and his assistant removed approximately 50,000 bees from our attic!  Every hour or so she would call with an update and she sent us incredible videos of the proceedings.  We know of few Realtors who would go to so much trouble for a client.”

 

“Between May and September of 2014, we bought a new house and sold an old one, both through Dave and Maggie Smith.  The process of buying and selling can be so fraught with landmines but Dave and Maggie made the process as easy as possible especially since we were out of state during most of the time. They hosted several open houses, followed up with all that visited, marketed the house and arranged for a colleague to handle any issues while they took a much needed and long deserved anniversary vacation.”

 

“Dave and Maggie, thank you for your very professional and even keeled handling of our sale, buyers, and contracting through closing. We appreciate your role and your attention to detail and you are to be congratulated for the number one ranking in Feather Sound- we see why!  - Bill and Linda

 

“Just wanted to take a moment to officially, and sincerely, thank you for the long list of characteristics that you possess that made us so lucky to call you that very first day. Your knowledge always, always, always made us feel secure with decisions to make offers, and when you famously said to us, "Run, don't walk away from this property" we didn't hesitate for even a second - we skedaddled.  We've always found that amazing.  We could trust anything or anyone that you recommended.   You never failed to find the time, show up with a brave smile, and then put us at ease which reminded us yet again how utterly fortunate we were to have you on our side.” - Mark and Glynis

 

“We wanted to thank you again for everything!  Selling our old home and moving into our new home the same day was stressful but knowing that we had two experienced and reliable Realtors that treated us more like a 'family friend' than just a client made everything so much easier.  We really appreciate that you were always there for us to patiently help with any questions.  We will be sure to refer you to anyone who mentions they are wanting to sell or purchase.”  - PB

 

“Thank you so much for guiding us through the 1st home buying experience!.  We can’t even express how grateful we are for all of your efforts.  My entire family smiles when we mention your names.  You’re the best and thank you!”

 

“Dave and Maggie assisted my father and I and my step-sisters in the sale of my father’s property.  They were so very attentive to our every need and wish in every way personally and professionally.  They helped me when I left Wisconsin and moved down with my dad for two months during the sale of the property and guided us through every issue that came about during the process with an almost uncanny immediate response to any need or question we had.  From helping us find handymen, donation centers, local references for shopping and even driving instructions to pick up all my father’s medical records before we left, they were spot on.  I wish when it comes time to sell my property in Wisconsin I could have a clone of the two of them because we all never would have made it through this emotionally difficult time without their guidance, advice and personal assistance.  It is important to me that you know they are the most professional, knowledgeable agents I personally have ever dealt with.  I have had many moves, most of which were cross country, and never had such a positive experience with a Realtor.”

 

“Dave and Maggie genuinely represent their customers' interests.  They took the time to get to know me, and my needs, and then helped me shop for a home with a focus and attention that far exceeded my expectations. I am grateful to the Smith's for their patience, and support.  If you're a serious home buyer, put the Smiths on your side.”  - Walter

 

“It was such a pleasure working with both of you!  Thank you for all your help and assistance selling our St. Pete home and then selling us our new home in Safety Harbor.  You will be highly recommended to everyone we come across that needs your services!!”  - Mike & Laura

 

“Dave and Maggie, I just needed to reach out and share with you the positive influence you have had on Jake.  Every transaction he is involved in with you he reiterates how professional you are and how impressed he is with your level of Integrity as it relates to the good of your clients.  It is not always the case.  I Thank You for the Positive Influence you have shared, taught and demonstrated in your career path as he is developing his.” - Ron

 

“Dave and Maggie are the best. They helped me when I first moved to Florida and during several potential moves within the state. Your first call should be to Dave and Maggie!” - Jon

 

“We utilized Dave and Maggie's services to sell our home in Feather Sound, this past year, during the worst real estate crisis that the Tampa Bay area ever experienced.  We had already known their reputation, but many of our neighbors and friends recommended that we contact Dave and Maggie as our first (and probably only) call. After meeting with them, we saw no reason to contact anyone else.  They are very personable, and you immediately get the feeling that you are working with friends. Working with an outstanding husband and wife team of their caliber, is a huge benefit, as they seem to relate to all types of buyers and sellers.  Even more evident, is the level of professionalism that they bring to their customers.  Plus, they are well-connected with the myriad of service providers that a seller (or buyer) needs to move through the process, smoothly. They handle EVERY detail thoroughly and professionally, treating each with priority emphasis. Their clients know that a situation has been or will be handled, with nothing left to chance.  VERY reassuring.  After working with them, I can assure you that they have earned their reputation as being among the best real estate professionals in the area, and the recognized experts for their Feather Sound home base.  Our situation seemed complex at the time, but to Dave and Maggie, it was all in a (long) day's work.”  - Mike

 

“Dave and Maggie do a great job of handling all the details of a home sale. Come highly recommended.” - Will

 

“Working with Dave and Maggie Smith is always a pleasure.  They have repeatedly proved themselves to be a clear-headed, analytical thinkers who can identify good opportunities and plan strategies for all of their clientele, be it buyers and sellers.  Their knowledge of the housing market in our area is extremely impressive and they are very sensitive to the need of their clients by navigating every step of the process with their keen knowledge, precise skill, dedicated acumen, and excellent expertise.  There are many Realtors who are great completing the deal, there are not many who actually care after the deal is done.”  - Mike

 

“Dave and Maggie handled the purchase of my house and helped several of my friends in selling and buying. Great to work with, professional, sincere, just a pleasant experience. Highly recommend them for real estate sale.”

 

“Thanks to Dave and Maggie we found a great house in the neighborhood We desired at a very reasonable price!”  - Claudia & Mike

 

“I'm very pleased to recommend Dave & Maggie Smith for all your Real Estate requirements for Feather Sound and surrounding areas.  Firstly, Dave and Maggie are a team, and a very formidable one!  They listen intently to their clients’ needs and aspirations and truly customize their response and proposals to meet your specific requirements.  Once engaged, Dave and Maggie work at a very high tempo and energy level to service your needs.  They deal quickly with any objections or obstacles that come up and have a very close network of staff and service providers for inspections and surveys etc.  Their customer care goes beyond the sale and I recall Dave calling in to provide fans and lunch as we were decorating our property prior to moving in. Dave & Maggie score highly on customer satisfaction and $$ sold metrics, and are frequently recognized with Industry Awards. I have no hesitation in referring friends and family to Dave & Maggie Smith and they come with my highest recommendation.”  - John & Linda

 

“I have known Dave and Maggie Smith both personally and professionally for more than 20 years. They are conscientious, considerate and extremely knowledgeable about Pinellas County real estate. I would highly recommend them in a New York minute.”  - Ava & John

 

“I had needed a Realtor to sell my Florida townhome (I was already living in another state). Dave and Maggie had come recommended to me and the entire process was handled both professionally and easily -- I was even in the midst of traveling at time of closing and they helped make sure I was kept in the loop and able to close on time.  It was about as "painless" as it could have been given the distance and not being able to meet face to face.  I would certainly recommend them in the future!”  - Clay
