More about Jane Smith
DEVELOPING CLIENTS FOR LIFE
INTEGRITY, CONNECTIONS & COMMUNICATION
I started working in real estate about 30 years ago and have steadily built my business focusing on my clients needs and serving them in an exceptional way. I love helping my clients in any way that I can with their real estate transitions. My business comes from repeat and past clients as well as referrals. My clients are happy about the work that I do for them and they have confidence in me to serve their friends and loved ones the same way. I work closely with my husband Garry to provide my clients with exceptional service. We work seamlessly together and our clients have always responded positively to having two professionals working towards their best interest.
Communicating openly and honestly with my clients is the cornerstone of my business. My clients have a solid understanding about current market trends and what they can expect, which enables them to make the best decisions within the given circumstances.
“When I entered into my contract with Jane Smith, she clearly and honestly informed me about the current complexities of the housing market. All of the suggestions made by Jane from the purchase of my home warranty, staging my home, price adjustments and negotiations were absolutely essential to the sale of my home.” ~Antoinette - Repeat Client
“Jane Smith has handled several real estate transactions for us; I can’t imagine selling/buying anything in the Portland areas without Jane. Her advice and information was always ‘right on’ - I have bought and sold many homes throughout the US, so I think I am more than qualified to say that she is the very best in her field.” ~Concetta - Repeat Client
ACHIEVING CLIENTS' GOALS
The reason that I like real estate is because it is fresh and new every day. No two clients are alike, and I look forward to the challenge of achieving their goals.
“Jane has been my sales associate through 3 homes. I would never think of going with anyone else. She takes the extra effort to ensure she knows my goals with the sale of my home and my desires for purchasing a new home. Jane also took the time and effort to use her exceptional skills in making sure I had the right mortgage, insurance, etc. Jane is an extraordinary sales associate and a credit to Coldwell Banker.” ~Janet - Repeat Client
LOCAL EXPERTISE X 2
Garry and I are local in the sense that we grew up and went to school in the area. We are deeply rooted in Greater Portland and sell in the place that we live. I tell clients that I know the area without a GPS…that usually gets a good laugh. But on a more serious note, I know what is going on in local hot spots all over Greater Portland and I closely follow market trends. Garry and I want to have fun serving our clients and we want them to be relaxed while we really focus on the details.
“Jane and Garry are a superb team. Always quickly responded to all questions by email or phone. Held our hand at every event or turn. Couldn’t have sold out house so quickly without them. The best is hard to find, but we did it!” ~David & Linda - Personal Referral
HOME STAGING & RELOCATION
There is a process that my clients experience when selling their home with me. Understanding my clients’ needs and goals is most important. I help them gain an understanding of pricing their home just right so that it is ready to go public and achieve their home sale goals. I also use staging techniques to present the home to the market in the most attractive way to buyers.
“Jane Smith was absolutely invaluable in selling the house in Portland, Maine that my sister and I inherited when out mother passed away this year. Because my sister and I live out of town, we had to rely heavily on Jane to be the local contact for absolutely everything. She is so dedicated to her profession; I felt comfortable from the beginning with Jane handling the entire process. She called or emailed me constantly and always reassured me that the perfect buyer would come along, and that is exactly what happened! Happy ending!” ~Brenda Vendela - Personal Referral
I have a good understanding of what relocating a family is all about. There are time constraints and communication is very important for the local and trailing spouse. Both individuals need to be reassured that this complicated process will work out. I manage most of the details in this type of transition, and I am able to give my clients access to additional resources that will help them complete their relocation.
“Jane Smith was always available and was very flexible when seeing homes with my husband and me. She was personable, yet very honest with us and would go above and beyond to research the values and need of homes we looked at. She was also available to help us with issues once we went under contract such as helping us find respectable and honest people to deal with during the inspections, repair men/women. As first time homeowners, Jane was exactly what we needed and were looking for in a Realtor.” ~Scott & Jillian - Personal Referral
