As a retired residential real estate agent, my expectations ran high. Lisa exceeded all of those expectations in two transactions, one representing us as a seller, and one as a buyer. If you are coming from a major metro, it is important to realize that the Resort Communities in Truckee are a different sort of 'animal'. Lisa is 'tuned in' to the up-coming listings, HOA peculiarities, and quirks associated with the various developments. She managed problematic title company issues, contractors, and always seemed to be the 'soothsayer' of advice in a 2020 market that defied predictability.
Lisa is an extraordinarily talented real estate professional. Her intimate knowledge of the market, customers, buying and selling dynamics and her ability to get a deal done make her one of the best in the business. Lisa works with a broad network of professionals within her office and her extended network e.g. trades people, loan, title, appraisers, inspectors etc. She is the glue and catalyst that makes transactions sail through with happy parties all around. A tall task that she handles expertly and with ease. I would unequivocally recommend Lisa Smith without reservation.
We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process of selling our second home in the mountains. Her knowledge of and commitment to the Tahoe Truckee community, Northstar, and Indian Hills in particular was invaluable. Because our primary residence is not in the Tahoe area, we were not available to take care of the myriad of details that need attending to when one sells a home. This was not a problem because Lisa was there to help us every step of the way. With an understanding of what the market is looking for and an impeccable design sense, she did the staging necessary to show off our condominium in the best possible light. Thanks to Lisa's excellent marketing and photography our second home sold quickly. During escrow Lisa and the Carr Long team were always available to answer questions and help with the volumes of paper work. And when it came time to close, Lisa was again there to deal with the utility and management companies. All of these tasks were accomplished with competence, humility, integrity and grace. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. We would be very happy to give Lisa our highest recommendation for anyone wanting to sell their property. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Lisa or being anything but happy choosing to work with her.
Lisa was amazing from start to finish! She was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We had an electrical issue that arose that needed a coordinated effort between the HOA, electrician and electric company and Lisa handled everything seamlessly. And, the icing on the cake, was that she was able to sell our condo at the highest price for a 2 bed 1.5 bath Gold Bend unit in years! I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Lisa helped us prepare our condo for sale and staged it. Her detailed knowledge of the area enabled her to describe the neighborhood, its remarkable quiet and proximity to wonderful trails, and its convenience for skiing. Lisa is familiar with the values of comparable properties, having sold a number of them recently. She proposed an appropriate asking price. She carried out the transaction most efficiently, keeping us informed of the various steps, and smoothing out the details of the process. We are delighted to have selected Lisa as our agent and we recommend her enthusiastically.
