I hadn't purchased a home in nearly 30 years. I found out quickly that the market was so good that houses were selling same day they were listed and even above asking price. So I searched the web and hired a well known realtor with incredible credentials. After less than 10 days I ended up having to give up on this realtor. I missed out on 3 houses I was very interested in due to very slow or no response from the realtor.
I went back to the web and stumbled upon a local realtor, Smythe Realty. After my first experience with the other well know realtor needless to say my expectations were not high. I first called and talked to Tanya Smythe who informed me that her son Austin would call me. I received a call from Austin in less than 5 mins (Hmmm good start already).
Austin went through several questions to find out what I was looking for so that I did not waste my time. We talked about the market and how fast houses were selling and I had little time to aquire a home. I explained my experience with the prior realtor. Austin assured me this experience would be different. Austin was right, what a difference. Austin emailed me a list of houses in about 45 mins. I had questions on one of them and he answered right away. I looked at several houses in the time I worked with Austin and he was always available and ready to look over the house with me, give me advice and also give his honest opinon from his experiences. I NEVER had to wait to look at a home or miss out on a home due to slow response or Austin being busy.
Then came the day I found my home. Austin knew this house would not stay on the market but a day or two. We made the deal that day and right after they accepted my offer there were 2 back-up offers on it. But thanks to Austin's dedication and hard work I got it!! I moved in my home the first of June.
There are a lot of larger realtors, with fancy slogans and colored jackets and all. But I found out that the biggest realty company is not always better. Especially when you put them against Smythe Realty. And just so you know, they do not forget about you after the sale. Nearly 4 months after the purchase I reached out to Austin this morning with a question and he got me an answer immediately.
If you are reading this because you are looking for a realtor I hope you give these fine people a chance. I cannot imagine using anyone else. We like to complain when service or product is not up to par. I wanted to let you know that here is a way to avoid that. Thanks Austin, for everything you did for me! I will continue to refer you to anyone I know needing to sell or purchase a home.
I have known Ms. Tanya Smythe since 2009 having purchased a large property (38 acres and 8,000 square foot home with 5 acre lake) she listed at 5306 STATE ROAD 144. During the purchase process she worked very closely with my Buyer’s agent and we effected a purchase efficiently and at a very reasonable price.
Subsequent to living on the property, my spouse passed away almost 4 years later and decided immediately to sell the property for many reasons. I decided to list the property very shortly thereafter assuming it would take 1-2 years to sell because of its list price. However, fortunately with Tanya’s excellent abilities I was able to sell and close within 6 months. The sale was complex, but Tanya’s expertise and selling savy was crucial to making it happen as it involved me purchasing multiple properties which were subsequently immediately sold in addition to dividing the land amongst a family situation.
Tanya is very professional and can make a sale happen in the most challenging of situations. I actually had interviewed two other realtors when placing my 5306 SR 144 on the market, but was most comfortable with Tanya’s expertise, experience and abilities. Tanya has worked a long time in the profession on the South side and as a consequence has a network of high end sellers and buyers. Many of the properties she handles are high end though she also works in the median price range also. What is most crucial is her unique ability to make sales happen through innovative approaches. She is one of the best in keeping homeowners informed and tracks the market carefully during the listing period. I can only say that she is certainly the best on the south side of Indianapolis. When I first met her she was working for a subsidiary realty company of Duke Homes. I always thought she had the fortitude and capability to go on her own and eventually did so. She has been extremely successful in operating her own company and has expanded accordingly because of the activity she obtains as both a listing and buyer’s agent.
Candy’s sales and negotiation experience were instrumental in helping us sell our home on Grandview Lake. She truly understands how to market your property and this was evidenced by listing and selling our home with only 8 days on the market. Most importantly, she worked very hard for us even prior to listing the property and was genuinely interested in helping us versus just collecting a fee. We highly recommend Candy McClean for your real estate needs!
Tanya Smythe was a joy to work with. Very professional and knowledgeable with buying and selling homes. Very responsive with questions and answers to guide us through the process. We recommend her highly!
Austin's expertise in the real estate market was very helpful when selling my home. Austin is a Dave Ramsey endorsed local provider. The customer service provided by him was far superior to another company I had previously worked with. Austin priced the house correctly and sold it in a timely manner. I would highly recommend his series, which I give 5 stars!
