Tell us about your experience with Carol Smith, ABR, GRI, SRES

  • Carol listed and sold my home

      Carol Smith did a great job in helping us sell our house. She was able to do in 2 months what our previous realtor could not do in 6 months. She put together a good package that highlighted the best of the house. Carol was knowledgeable and professional. She kept us informed throughout the selling/closing process. We are very thankful that Carol was our realtor. Rusty Woods

    • Carol made selling our house a breeze. We sold at above what I thought we could in 3 days. She did all the paperwork and even helped me close from another state. She will go the extra mile for you.

    • I recently moved to Frankfort from Idaho. I received Carol's name and number from a realtor in Idaho. He was looking for someone in the area with excellent credentials and experience. I met Carol once and then the rest of our time was handled over email and phone until we met again on closing day when I arrived in Frankfort. She was completely professional and helpful as we ran into a couple snags along the way. She handled everything with professionalism and totally had my interest in heart during the transactions. I would and do recommend Carol if your are looking to buy or sell a home. By the way, I love my new home and the city of Frankfort! Thank you Carol!

    • Carol has been the most helpful, most patient realtor we could have had the pleasure of working with. She listened to what we wanted, and showed us every house in which we were interested. Once we found the house we wanted, she helped us from making the offer through the inspection process and all the way through closing. She was available throughout the process to answer all our questions. Carol was everything we wanted in a realtor. We'd highly recommend her.

    • We highly recommend Carol Smith for any real estate representation. She is very efficient; detail oriented and did not talk but left us to walk through property uninterrupted. When we asked a question, she answered. If she doesnt know, shell do her research and quickly respond by email, text, or phone call. She is very professional in handling any problem that arises and was most willing to meet contractors and service people when we were not available. We just bought a home long distance with multiple seller issues, contingencies, and closing documents. Carol stayed on top of everything; never dropped the ball and was never rattled. We are so pleased to have engaged her services in relocating to central Kentucky.

      - David and McGehee Marsh

    • Highly likely to recommendBought a Single Family home in 2015 in Frankfort, KY.Local knowledge:5/5Process expertise:5/5Responsiveness:5/5Negotiation skills:5/5Used Carol to purchase a home after a move from Lexington. After we found the house I wanted, she secured utility records to make sure there were no surprises waiting and produced comps from recent sales to help formulate an offer. Wound up paying much less than I'd even hoped for. I'm very happy in my new home and thrilled at what I ended up paying for it. I would use her again as my agent if I ever needed to move again (but I'm planning on staying put for a good long while).
