Paul from Lynnwood
Jeff was incredibly helpful when searching for our home. He was knowledgeable and consulted us regarding our options. He was very timely in finding homes, showing them, and contacting us and the home owners. The negotiations were very easy for us and we ended up with a home that is nicer than we ever would have imagined and at a lower price than we had hoped for. It was a fantastic experience working with him and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

We highly recommend Jeff after he navigated a complicated short sale purchase of a condo for us with excellent results. He was very helpful in explaining the complexity of the short sale process as well as managing the process through to a successful closing in under 90 days. We will continue to use Jeff for future investment properties as we expand our portfolio of rentals.

Jeff has been a blessing to our lives. Selling a home in this market is tough under the best of circumstances. We were amazed at how Jeff kept his composure and demonstrated a true desire to help us while juggling the showing and selling of our home against multiple obstacles. He went above and beyond by connecting the Home Owners Association with a consultant who helped them through the FHA paperwork so we could attract additional buyers. Being a first time seller, Jefff clearly described each step of the process, breaking it down in terms that were easy to understand. If he is so flexible and willing to go the extra miles for us, we can only imagine what he will do fo you! When the time comes for us to purchase our next home, we know that he will be our Broker! We recommend him as a true asset to achieving your goals of home ownership or selling your home.

The service and personal attention I received from Jeff Smith at Windermere was highly exceptional! He is truly a high-caliber real estate agent. His knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the community helped me in my search for the perfect condo to lease. After patiently going through listings and scheduling viewings for me, when I finally made my selection he made sure to negotiate the best offer for the leasing terms! Ultimately I am left with a wonderful place to call home and the satisfaction that I received the best deal. Regardless of whether you are buying, selling, or leasing I would highly recommend Jeff to help you in your real estate endeavors. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide me through this process.

I have worked with Jeff on multiple transactions the last couple of years, in addition to the one on this review, and I continue to admire and appreciate his knowledge, integrity, and attention to detail. I have also appreciated his kindness and understanding as I navigated the bumpy emotional waters of purchasing and selling property.

Jeff Smith won my undying gratitude in 2013 when he went far, far beyond the call of duty in the sale of my home.
The brief version of my story is that I went to Uganda in 2012 to complete the adoption of my son and unexpectedly got stuck there in the worst bureaucratic red tape from hell. When it became clear that I would need to be there for several years, I determined that I had to sell my beloved home here in Seattle. I enlisted Jeff for the task, and he oversaw every detail with getting my house in prime condition, staged and on the market. It sold within a week at a price that was pleasing to me. Then Jeff surprised me by coordinating and funding a BBQ and Packing Party with my friends since I was still in Uganda. They packed up my whole house and readied it for the movers. To top it off, Jeff gave me a sizable gift as his way of supporting my fledgling family during our painful and stressful time.
I am happy to say that we are finally back in Seattle, 4 years after my departure. When we are ready to buy a house again, you know who I'll be turning to: Jeff Smith--my agent and my friend.

Our close friends in Seattle highly recommended Jeff when we were looking for a real estate professional to help us find a house in the city. We spent a very pleasant afternoon looking at places with him in August 2014 and a few weeks later he found us the house that was everything we wanted. We bought the house site unseen: Jeff made it easy with frequent phone calls and dozens of short videos that showed us every nook and cranny. Since then we’ve had an on-going relationship with him that is as much personal as it is professional. We couldn’t imagine a more attentive and pleasant person to work with.

Outstanding professional service. Sold one property quicker than ever expected and at a price beyond belief. Purchased another with his quick and efficient service. A great broker!

Jeff helped us through what appeared to me to be a flawless land purchase process. He provided the services and information we needed when we needed them. I felt confident throughout the experience because of Jeff's expertise. I would highly recommend him for your next real estate transaction.
Paul and Cole in Seattle
There are hundreds - maybe thousands - of real estate brokers in the Seattle area who have an excellent understanding of the legal and technical aspects of handling a transaction. Jeff is certainly one of them. But there are relatively few brokers who ALSO have an equally deep understanding of human emotions. This is where Jeff really stands apart from the crowd. His background as a pastor means that he spent decades helping counsel people through emotionally turbulent moments in their lives - and he brings those people skills to the table when negotiating on his clients' behalf. In late 2014 Jeff helped us buy a house on acreage in the country - truly a dream come true for us to get out of the city where we could have a big garden, chickens, etc. It was an emotional purchase for us - and it turned out to be an even more emotional deal for the seller, for a lot of reasons. Complicated issues arose following the inspection, particularly involving the septic system. It almost killed the deal. I genuinely believe that it was Jeff's calm and compassionate handling of the emotions on both sides that kept the deal together, and got us the dream house in the country. I'm sure there are plenty of other agents who would've understood the legal issues - but Jeff uniquely understood, and successfully navigated, the equally complex human emotions involved. I believe it made the difference for us, and that's why I would recommend him without reservations.
Nancy in Montlake
I had the privilege of working with Jeff Smith when looking to sell my home in the Montlake area. His professionalism and attention to detail was much more than expected and his expertise in marketing (including staging, publicizing, and videotaping) certainly increased my ultimate sales price. I greatly appreciated his support on both ends and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him; in fact, if I return to Seattle, I’ll contact him first thing for future transactions. He’s the hardest working Realtor I’ve ever met.
Lila and Joe in Seattle
Jeff helped us sell our wonderful home that we loved and enjoyed for over 37 years. He was understanding, helpful, effective and perhaps most importantly compassionate in dealing with us when we were going through this necessary yet emotional transaction. Plus, if you happen to have an apple tree in your back yard, he bakes a marvelous apple pie!!! He was a delight to work with!
Tucker in Seattle
Jeff and I have worked together for a few years now. I knew Jeff was a special agent to work with very early on in our relationship. He added a level of caring and passion that I had not seen in anyone else then and now! The level of loyalty Jeff has brought to my search for the perfect home has been beyond compare. We have spent a lot of time working to find the right place for me at the right time in my life with great success. I am happy to call Jeff a friend, and my only source for all things related to real estate for as long as he is in the business and that’s after three different transactions!
John in Leavenworth
A fantastic representative for me as both a seller and buyer. Jeff went well above and beyond the duty to get the very best for me as a client. I highly recommend Jeff for your real estate needs. He'll be mine when I'm ready for the next one.
