" I would strongly recommend Sam Smith and his team at Beach Cities Real Estate. I was moving from California and needed a good realtor to handle the sale of my property. I decided to give Sam a try. The first thing that impressed me was Sam's professionalism, knowledge of the market and his wide range of marketing ideas. I new I was in good hands as soon as I saw Sam in action and saw how he had advertised my property. Because the market was slowing Sam suggested that maybe renting my unit was the best idea. Again Sam and his team especially Joseph Horsley, took control of the situation and with in a week I had a tenant. They are very concerned with their clients needs and they have done a great job of checking credit, references, and making sure my unit is rented with no down time. Sam is a cut above and I appreciate his professionalism and concern for me as his client. "

" I first used Sam's services to sell my home when the housing market was good. I noticed that he was able to get things done quickly and correctly, so when my fiance was ready to sell his home, I recommended that he call Sam at Beach Cities Realty. Unfortunately by this time, the market was terrible. Due to Sam's great marketing skills, we received a higher price than we originally expected and when there were problems with the buyer's closing, Sam went the extra mile to get the job done. He is now representing us as we buy a home in a very confusing market. Once again, I've noticed that his people skills are amazing, his creativity is remarkable, and his follow-through is flawless. He has proven to me that his experience and expertise allows him to excel as a realtor in all situations. "

" I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your representation in the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. With the real estate market cool down in Orange County Tom and I were somewhat skeptical that we would be able sell the Capo Bach cottage we had outgrown and find another property. After meeting with Jim for the first time I felt very confident that you would deliver. Right from the start your sincerity, enthusiasm and professionalism stood out form the many agents I had previously interviewed. I would not be disappointed. The marketing materials you created hit just the right note, capturing the unique charm of Capo Beach and showcasing our home in its absolute best light. The results of your efforts speak for themselves. An enormous number of prospective buyers and agents saw our home. Despite the market downturn, you located a buyer in another state and at the end of the transaction we walked away with full asking price, well ahead of the time you estimated our home would be on the market It was our first home and we had poured an enormous amount of time and energy into renovating it. Selling it was a very emotional experience and it was important to me that the buyer loved it the way we did. The positive rapport you facilitated through closing our deal with the buyer allowed all of us to walk away feeling like we had great experience. With incredible patience and good humor for my often unruly toddlers, you showed me home after home in a completely pressure free manner. You succeeded in locating us a new home with all the attributes we had dreamed of but thought near impossible in our price range. Your diplomacy and negotiating skills resulted in a reduced price without alienating the listing agent, who would be our future neighbor.We love our quiet hill top location, our enormous backyard, (so hard to find in San Clemente!) and the privacy of our cul de sac. Because of your capability, total integrity and unfailingly warm and friendly demeanor throughout what can be a very stressful process, I would highly recommend you to any prospective seller. You may use me as a reference any time. Best, Dorothy Newman (San Clemente, CA) "

" On the recommendation of a friend, I listed my home with Sam Smith and Beach Cities Realty. The results were great. Sam is a pleasure to deal with, an efficient professional with excellent judgment and solid advice. Now I recommend Sam Smith to my family and friends. Sam Smith is easily the best realtor I've ever used. He is polished, professional and skilled. Sam�s tips on selling my home were keen and effective. I will gladly use Sam again for my next purchase or sale. In my book, Sam is first, and nobody's second. Realtors usually give me a big pain in the neck. Not so with Sam Smith. Sam is sharp on the markets and gives advice worth heeding. My house sold quickly for a good price. A close friend recommended Sam and Beach Cities Realty, and it turned out quite a favor. . I have bought and sold homes in Orange County for over 20 years, using various realtors. Having used Sam Smith and Beach Cities Realty to sell my last home, I'll never use anyone else. Sam's judgment was perfect for my situation. Excellent advice! "
