Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Elizabethtown, PA.
John Smith and his master team in the office Michele, Jenn, and Dodie were of great help during the sale of our home. We listed our home with John and within 36 hours we had multiple offers on the table. John guided us and we couldn't have been happier! John and his team made us feel comfortable and at ease. They went above and beyond every step of the way. From the day we listed with him till the day we closed and even after. We would highly recommend you using this entire team to sell or purchase your next home. Thank you!

For anyone buying or selling in the Elizabethtown area, John Smith Reality is your ONLY choice. John's experience and local knowledge of the market are resources you need on your team. John also adds the personal touch and devotes his personal time to satisfy his customers. I have used John Smith Reality multiple times and always have received excellent and professional service. John met our timeline and negotiates a fair settlement. Recommend John Smith Reality over the nationwide chains for that local perspective.
John and his team were very professional, friendly and went above and beyond to make both the purchase of our new home and the sale of my home go as smoothly as possible. John even gave us a house warming gift at our settlement and that was so nice and very much appreciated. In all my years of buying and selling property, none compare with the John Smith team. I hope we don't need your services again as we LOVE our new home and do not plan on every moving!!
I liked working with John and his team. They were honest and personable. There was a discrepancy in the closing cost and John was able to fight for my position and get the problem resolved saving me $1200. I would use their service again!
Our home was difficult to sell owing to its unusual location and position on the lot. It was a long process with many disappointments along the way, but John was always a great encouragement and kept difficult situations light. He worked hard to sell our home and went above and beyond to help us purchase our dream home. We developed a close relationship with John and consider him a dear friend as well as an excellent agent. After closing we were happy to have sold our home but equally sad to see John go! If we ever need to sell our home again (which we don't plan to do), we wouldn't choose anyone else.
My husband and I have worked with John for several real estate transactions over the past few years. Not only is he extremely personable, responsive, and knowledgeable in the intricacies of real estate, but what really sets him apart is his incredible networking and his knowledge of construction materials and systems. It's only due to his extensive networking that we have been able to find two dream properties and he worked exhaustively through all possible avenues to find exactly what we wanted. As we went through our search, he was able to explain what types of components were used to build homes, what we should look for as we considered construction, and what creative options we had for building versus renovation. He also was able to connect us with the appropriate mortgage company, surveyors, township tax contacts.. all which were needed to complete a complicated transaction. All of this, and he is also a genuinely kind and friendly person who you enjoy going through the process with. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
John and his team are wonderful. Having used John previously we would not use anyone else. John is our go to guy. He priced our home fairly and it sold in two days. John and the "team" are very professional, knowledgeable, and returned all calls and e-mails in a timely fashion. You can trust John for results.

John Smith helped us get the best price for our home, sell it quickly, and find a new home that's perfect for us. John and his team are professional, thorough, and responsive. They have a solid understanding of the regional housing market and are deeply connected to the community. We were totally satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.
We went with another local agent, who like John, sells a lot in our area. What we did not realize then, that we realize now, is there is a difference in the types of houses agents sell. Just because an agent sells a lot of houses, does not mean they can necessarily sell yours. Our first agent sells a lot of entry level homes in our area, which fly off the shelf whoever is selling them in most cases. She seemed out of her league in a mid to upper level home as ours was. John on the other hand sells lot of houses at all levels. We gave the 1st agent the standard 6 months, and she had lots of showings, and people said how wonderful our house was, but not one solid offer. Then we turned to John, who with hindsight being 20/20 we should have gone with from the beginning. John came out, got to know us, seemed very personable, gave us some very helpful tips, and within 5 weeks we had a solid offer. John and his team were with us every step of the way. As busy as John is he does not always respond immediately, but when he can't his staff does. Claire always let us know they got our message, and she always made sure either John or herself got back to us in a timely fashion. In my opinion John is a caring, generous pillar of our community, and he has assembled a great team who will get your house sold. From entry level homes, to high end homes, John and his team know how to target the right buyers, and they help you through the entire process.
John also got us into our new home. John was able to help us get what we feel will be the perfect home for us. Again, he listened to our wants, and we feel like he took the time to get to know us a little. I cannot say enough positive things about John, and his team.
I listed my home with John Smith late in 2016 after interviewing three realtors. The house sold in about three months. The first offer fell through due to sellers' lack of funds but we had a back-up offer that went through quickly. Generally, I spoke to John when there was an offer and his staffers otherwise.
Pleasant, knowledgeable and on top of things. John, Claire and Michele and the rest of the staff were great to work with. John made an accurate estimate of the property's value and made recommendations on how to prepare the home for showings.
Every member of the John Smith Realty Team is friendly and professional. They answered my email questions promptly and gave me helpful advice over the phone. Buying a home can be stressful, but with the John Smith Team buying my new home was stress free.
John was great in helping me find the home that I wanted. John was kind, knowledgeable, and willing to help me no matter what time of day. I would definitely recommend John to family and friends in their search for a new home!
Very professional team all around. House was listed less than a week and multiple offers came in. Everyone I dealt with was very knowledgeable and had answers to all of my questions. Communication was excellent from day 1 through the closing. A++ effort from the entire John Smith team and I would definitely list with them again! Thanks everyone for all of your help and for making the sale of my house a painless experience and a huge success!
