Beautiful 5 BR, 3.5 BA Ocean View in Carlsbad

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

"I used the Ana Smith team (Ana, Victoria and Xander) for both buying and selling a home and would highly recommend them. They did a great job of marketing the property, including holding many open houses, following up on all of the leads, and making recommendations on how to present my home to its best advantage. The closing was as smooth as possible because of their diligent follow up and attention to all of the details.

The Team brings experience, expertise, diligence, integrity and caring to every client."

PROFESSIONAL AND CARING 

"I have known Ana Smith for over 16 years. I worked with her when I was a Title Insurance Rep. We did a lot of business together. I enjoyed working with her because she is very professional and caring with her clients and also with everyone she works with. I retired from Title Insurance and needed to sell my home and buy a Condo. Out of all the Realtors I know I picked Ana to represent me. She was great to work with and took quick action to get my home sold and help me buy a condo. I appreciate all that she did and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great Realtor. "

- Bobbie Belser


Very forward Thinking and Positive

Ana Accepted the Challenge

"The real estate and banking environment feels like nothing less than a "war zone" in recent years. A war zone in which the banks seem to have most of the ammo. It is, therefore, essential to have a secret weapon on your side. I was very fortunate to have Ana Smith as my secret weapon.

I am licensed for real estate sales in both California and Nevada but do not actively use my licenses for residential selling purposes and found myself in the unenviable position of an "upside down" house in both San Diego and Riverside County.

Thru gross mismanagement and delays by the previous agent on the San Diego house, I found myself with little time left and no "cease fire" in sight. Ana accepted the challenge. She fought valiantly and tirelessly for seven long months. Extensions, denials, negotiators endlessly reassigned, delays, and more delays by the banks. She never gave up on me and in the end we stood proudly victorious with a successful shortsale. I know we were both proud of what we'd accomplished. My only regret was in thinking that the Riverside County house was being handled as competently by another agent. Had I used Ana, I sincerely believe it would not have been lost to foreclosure.

She is professional, knowledgable, and classy even under fire. I could not have asked for a better comrade."
