Clark Smith

  • Clark helped me buy a home

      Clark did a great job in helping me hind my home. He was very accommodating and worked with my busy schedule. I purchased a short-sale and he was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the process and walked me through to ensure there were no issues. I consistently recommend him to my friends, family, and coworkers and will definitely use his services again should I need them.

    • Truly deserving of the NOVA Realtor of the Year!! After working with multiple agents, my wife and I were looking for someone who would show us homes, not just show us the listings they were trying to sell. After meeting with Clark once, it was clear he would be different. Although we were very picky, Clark focused on our "must have" items and never had us settle for less. Clark navigated us through new construction, foreclosures, short sales, and traditional. Despite some disappointments, Clark kept us positive throughout the process. In the end, Clark was able to get us a home that we could not be happier with. We look forward to raising our family in a home we would have never been able to get without Clark.

    • Clark is very personable and knowledgeable. He is the best realtor that I have ever worked with. I have recommended his services to my friends and will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs an excellent realtor.

    • Clark Smith was recommended to me from multiple friends who have used him in the past both to buy and sell. Working with Clark was incredibly easy. He found me a great Townhouse, in the area I wanted, and for a great price. I had very specific requirements especially for trees behind my unit and Clark found great options for me to look at. Once we found the place, the entire process from putting in the offer, home inspection, all the way through closing was seamless. I absolutely cannot recommend him enough. He is a great guy to work with, listens to his customers, is very detailed orientated to make sure nothing gets missed, and will stay engaged with you every step of the way

      - Bryan F
    • Clark is an exceptional professional to work with and he goes far and beyond the call of duty. He is not just a realtor to me but he is my trusted advisor, negotiator and friend. I relocated to Virginia from NY almost two years ago and was given six days to find a place to live and move to a state I was unfamiliar with and knew no one. Clark worked diligently in the one day we had to find me a place to live. It was important to Clark that I would be happy with my new home and the location. In fact, he did such a great job at ensuring my transition was successful that I decided that Virginia is where I wanted to stay and enlisted Clarks help again to purchase my first home. As a first time home buyer, there are so many things that I did not know but Clark knew me. Clarks knowledge of his clients as people and the area made my home buying experience the best decision I have ever made. I built my home but really Clark and I built my home. When I decided on the home I wanted I had forgotten my checkbook. Clark wrote a check for me from his personal bank account to hold the property. While decisions were being made, contracts were being signed and my home was being built Clark knew when I wanted him to speak on my behalf, he knew that there were questions that I did not know to ask and asked them for me while teaching me along the way. He was at every meeting and walk through that I asked him to attend with me. He was copied on countless emails that he didn't need to be on just to make sure I felt comfortable and that the smallest detail was not overlooked. Clark sat next to me at my closing and waited with me when my loan had a nationwide system glitch. I never felt uneasy, unsure or questioned my decisions. Prior to my home being up to code/livable the appraisal came in over the purchase price. I can not express in words the gratitude that I feel towards Clark and the time he invested in me to ensure my happiness with my home

      - Marie Caliny
    • Clark is literally the best of the best when it comes to Realtors! He is an expert in all aspects of the home buying process and will walk you through, step by step. He treats EVERY client like they are his only client (which must be impossible at times). He went ABOVE and BEYOND to help me with my not-so-easy transaction. He answered every question, returned every missed phone call and never left me guessing with ANY aspect of the process. All this, AND he is just a good guy. What can I say, call Clark

      - Nickie
    • Clark was very patient and helpful in our search for the perfect home! He was knowledgeable about the area and home builders, among other things. Clark made himself available for the many tours we needed before we found what we wanted!

      - Lindsay Cochran
    • Clark has been my real estate agent for 12 years over several purchases. He's attentive, great strategist, and knows the area/builders/agents extremely well.

      - Ryan & KC
    • Clark was always available to talk to us or answer our questions. He helped to make the process go very smoothly with very little stress. He had good advice and was very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend Clark.

      - Josie Shaak
    • Clark assisted us with the sell of a condo and purchase of a townhouse. He had our condo listed and sold in less than 2 days, and negotiated a solid contract with a price higher than our asking price. Since the townhouse we were purchasing was new we did not think we needed a real estate agent, but quickly learned we were wrong. Clark has expertise in new construction and without his review of the contract we would have been overcharged for the house. He also attended the walk thru and caught items that we would have missed. Clark is the most professional agent I have worked with

      - Pat
    • Clark helped us buy our first townhome. He is a true professional and market expert. We met him at an open house where he was acting as a listing agent. After a great conversation about the current market and areas that we should consider, we decided that he was the perfect agent for us. Clark made some great suggestions on neighborhoods and when viewing homes, he pointed out things that we never even thought of. He really has an interest in finding you the right home and will advise you on what to look for in terms of quality. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of neighborhoods, builders, and building materials Clark was so great that we even used his services for the rental of our condo. We will definitely call Clark when it is time to move again.

      - Mac
    • Clark is AWESOME. Clark stays within the price range and limitations we had discussed. Not once did I arrive at a house outside my financial requirements. He is very responsive with all my questions even when they were not "real estate specific". This is the second time I have purchased a home with Clark as my realtor. He is always been professional and polite. Clark did work very hard to help me find a this home that we just purchased. I even had my Father-inlaw look at selling his house with Clark. Clark did a market analysis and discussed everything with him. They looked at some of the competing houses to fully understand what the market is doing in his neighborhood. My Father-inlaw decided to not sell (with a recommendation not to sell from Clark). Any realtor that is willing to take the time to do that with you and your family is great. My Father-inlaw will eventually sell. He does plan to use Clark's services when he finally does sell.I cannot recommend Clark enough. He is fantastic. Call him and save yourself the pain of a realtor that is only "part time". Clark does this FULL TIME and the quality of his service shows!

      - Damon Samuelson
    • I can honestly say Clark get 5 stars in every criteria. Clark was super friendly and responsive to all my phone calls, emails, questions, and concerns. He was willing to accommodate to my schedule and did not pressure me. In fact, he insured I fully thought my decisions over. Almost everywhere we looked there were people coming up and saying hello to him. He also knew a lot of local business owners and steered me in the right direction in the community. During negotiations, Clark's expertise shined when there was a flooring problem with the home I had made an offer on. The flooring problem came happened after my offer and was not discovered until the day of closing on the final walk through. I was about to not go to the final walk through. Clark convinced me to take a final walk through right before closing. This is when I discovered the floor problem. During closing, Clark stood up for me. While we did not close on that day, it was only a couple days later and I received compensation for the floor that I do not feel I would have with another Real Estate Professional. Clark has my utmost respect and I continue to highly recommend him. Clark's expertise and professionalism further shine when everyone I have spoke to about him returns with the same feelings after their encounter! People do not get better than Clark

      - Brock
    • Clark demonstrates an unparalleled level of knowledge of the local real estate market as well as an unrivaled level of responsiveness. He upholds the highest level of professionalism, listens and is extremely responsive to needs and wishes expressed. Above and beyond all of these points, he is an absolute pleasure to work with - if you are in need of the best to help with your house hunt or home sale - look no further - this is the guy!

      - Joe Nestor
    • Clark as helps us more than once, he assited with a short sale home, a rental, and then to purchase our new home. he know the area like the back of his hand, and is always willing to help. he knows so much about the industy that there is no way he will not be able to sell that home or get you into a new home.

      - Dennis Gonzalez
    • Clark Smith was a fantastic real estate agent to work with as a first time home buyer. He was extremely timely in putting in an offer and negotiating a deal. I had many questions as it was my first home, and Clark sat down with me to go over the entire process and answer all questions I had. I could not be happier with my new condo and the smooth process I had to get it.

      - Maddy Hartman
    • From start to finish The Gold Group was perfect! Best choice I could have made for the biggest purchase of my life. I fully recommend The Gold Group for any of your real estate needs. They made the complicated nature of this type of purchase a breeze!

      - Matt Upperman
    • Clark is extremely personable, very easy going, and his knowledge of the market is like no other. As a first time home buyer, I've heard my fair share of nightmares, but my house buying process was a breeze and I attribute the majority of that to Clark. He was always on call and always willing to do what it would take to make sure we were happy. If and when we sell our house and buy a new house, we will be using Clark in order to assist us with both!

      - Kasey & Winter
    • I was lucky enough to have selected Clark as my Real Estate Agent when I was in search for my next house. His knowledge of the industry and the current market are top notch. As a sales professional myself, customer service is something I hold in high regard. Clark did a fantastic job of always making himself available to view house's that I would drop on him at the last minute and answer random phone calls with questions (I had many). In closing, I really enjoyed my buying experience with Clark. When I need to sell my house, I will without a doubt call him. I highly recommend using Clark on your next purchase/sale.

      - Tony Holdaway
    • I would highly recommend Clark. He helped me buy my first home, and as a first time homebuyer the process can be scary and quite overwhelming. Clark was always a phone call or text away and was sincerely happy to help me think through any of my concerns or answer any of my questions. His wife Tracy was very helpful as a resource during the process as well. They make a great team. A friend of mine who used Clark to purchase his home referred me to him. Clark is genuine and truly cares about his clients. Due to those characteristics Clark embodies, both that friend I have continued maintaining contact with Clark even after the purchase was complete.

      - Colleen Luczko
    • Clark helped my husband and I purchase a new home earlier this year, as well as helped us to rent a condo we own. He is wonderful to work with! He made the purchase process so easy for us. He was always responsive, really cared about finding the best home for us and was great with getting our bid accepted and the inspection, closing, etc. Would highly recommend him!

      - Mona
    • I couldn't have asked for a better realtor than Clark. I've had previous experiences with other realtors that weren't so great, so I know the difference! He was honest, understanding, and very helpful on both the buying and selling ends. He was extremely dedicated to selling our home, and we sold it in little more than a week, largely due to his negotiation skills. He also made sure we understood everything as it was happening and was responsive to my and my husband's many questions! We appreciated the personal attention. All in all, I would definitely use him again and would recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for a great realtor.

      - Christine
    • I recently had the pleasure of purchasing my first home through Clark. Clark is a great realtor, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sale real estate, especially for fellow first time home buyers like myself. Clark really made the whole process of finding, looking at, and finally purchasing my house, all the more easier. His knowledge of the area is vast, as he has been practicing real estate here in northern Virginia, for around 30 years. Furthermore, Clark seems to have a builders' knowledge in how a house is to be constructed from the ground up, so that it's almost like having a house inspector as well as a realtor. In addition to his experience and knowledge, Clark is very accessible and always gets back to you really fast with any question or concerns that you might have. Clark is also very patient and allows you to take your time and to not rush you. And Clark is a very good negotiator. He will always do his utmost to look out for his client's interests and help them get the best price possible. With Clark's help, I was able to find exactly the house that I was looking for at the price-level that I felt comfortable at. Again, I thoroughly recommend Clark Smith, and I would definitely use him again.

      - Gray
    • Clark was excellent in helping us find and acquire our home. My wife and I met him at one of his open houses and we knew immediately he would move mountains for us if it meant getting us our home. His experience and depth of knowledge shined right away as he showed us through a many houses for sale. He was able to identify the make, model, type of construction very easily by simply looking at the walls, flooring, appliance, cabinets and etc. Truly a master of his craft.

      - Julie Chen
    • Clark and Tracy are priceless when it comes to both buying and selling homes. They walked us through the entire process and made sure there were no surprises. Clark sets realistic expectations and delivers. There were no decisions we had to make without feeling comfortable.

      - Joanne
    • Clark was very helpful in the purchase of our Condo. He was very responsive. If I left a message he would get back to me within a very short time. He answered all of our questions and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely use him again.

      - Amanda
    • Clark was fantastic to work with. He came highly recommended by a family friend and he was wonderful to deal with for an out of state home purchase. Clark showed us over 40 homes, and the first home that he chose for us to look at was the home we now live in. We have recommended him to several other people for relocation packages.

      - Lindsay
    • Nicest guy you'll ever meet. Genuinely cares about your well-being and will be completely open and honest throughout the process. Incredibly hard-working.

      - Michael
    • Clark was able to provide great service while trying to sell my house. He was able to educate me and guide me through the various stages of the selling. If I had any questions or concerns, he was able to help get answers as soon as possible. Would highly recommend using him again for any further dealing with realty.

      - Michael Palmer
    • He's always there for you (the whole process of home buying is very intense especially if you are a first time home buyer; he is a realtor that you can totally trust and rely on 100%.).

      - Sasha
    • Clark was exceptional. Clark made us feel comfortable in every step. If there was an issue, Clark went in head first to handle it. He is calm, cool, very personable, warm, and friendly. Everywhere we went, he was called out by name "Hi Clark!". He has an excellent reputation, and he sure proved to be a true professional.

      - Ron & Jennifer Arthur
    • Buying a home or condo can be, if your anything like me, absolutely terrifying. Having to make big decisions on your own can is intimidating especially if this is the first time you've bought a home.Clark Smith was the third realtor that I met with before beginning my search, and from the moment we met and started talking I realized something. I DONT HAVE TO DO THIS ON MY OWN. I knew absolutely nothing about buying or owning a condo or house. Clark asked lots of questions and really helped me decide what was important to me and how we could check off as many of those boxes with the property I would eventually buy. By E-mail - Phone - Text, Clark was always available to me and willing to communicate how ever I wanted. That created a completely unique experience and was a key factor in the seller ultimately excepting my offer on the house over other offers.We looked, and as we looked I asked a lot, I mean A LOT of questions. What I thought I wanted when I set out on this journey began to change and so did the type of property's I looked at. Clark never made me feel like I had wasted his time, in fact his excitement grew as did mine because he knew that ultimately I would much more happy and it that was his number one priority. It's was that very energy that he brought to the table that kept me going to find my dream home.Now hears the kicker. About two weeks before closing a huge tree fell on the detached garage and, no joke, nearly destroyed it! That's about the fastest way to turn a home buying experience into a complete (four letter choice word) nightmare. Now this is why I will make this one simple statement. Clark Smith is the best Realtor in Northern Virginia. He explained the entire process, prepared contract addendum's to protect my interest so that the house was exactly as I wanted it and prevent any chance of loosing the house all while keeping the seller and his agent on our side. He even arranged from him and I too meet the sellers agent at the property so we could talk about my expectations for the repairs and to put my nerves at ease that everything would be ok. Clark's positive and enthusiasts energy along with his "kill em with kindness" attitude kept everyone involved on the up and up. Meet with Clark and see for yourself. I'm so glad I did :-))

      - Richard Riffe
    • Clark is simply excellent. The market in Arlington is truly something to contend with, but Clark helped to guide us through the process, and was helpful and lovely the entire time. He quickly "got" what we were looking for (sometimes even before we did!) and was great at both weeding out houses that weren't the right one, thus saving us time and energy, and helping us find "the one." In fact - when he found our house, Clark was nervous because we were out of town and he knew we would love the house. And he was right. He then patiently walked us through the entire offer, counter, inspection, and closing stages without a glitch. We can't thank Clark enough for making a very difficult and stressful process a pleasant and successful one. And to top it off, he is just a great guy.

      - Meredith & Tom Kramlik
    • Clark gives real estate agents a good name. In the past few years, he sold our condo with lightening speed and at an excellent price. He made the selling process--from taking pictures for the sale to all phases of the final settlement--easy and smooth. Clark was also responsible for finding exactly the townhouse we wanted and for which we were suited. He listened to and remembered our priorities, which as you know not all agents do, and did all the research, saving us so much time and anxiety. Purchasing went just as smoothly as selling. My husband and I have completely relied on his advice, which has always served us well. We intend always to entrust our real estate needs to him.

      - Linda
    • There was never a question that I would choose Clark to market and sell my home. He had represented my son in two prior home purchases, and it was clear he went above and beyond in each instance. The sale of my home of 20 years was more emotional than I thought it would be, and Clark was most understanding, literally helping me organize my to-do list and recommending trusted professionals to assist in getting my home ready to go on the market. There were a number of offers made, and it was Clark's knowledge and expertise that led me to accept the offer that I did, bringing me to where I wanted to be in the end. He was always there for my questions, followed-up all inquiries from other agents, and worked incessantly on my behalf. I couldn't imagine a better advocate than Clark in any real estate transaction, either on behalf of a seller or buyer!

      - Bob
    • We used Clark for the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one. He was fantastic! He was an invaluable resource, has an extensive knowledge, and made the whole process easy. We couldn't be happier and have already recommended Clark to several friends.

      - Grant & Kate
    • Clark Smith has been an excellent Realtor and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase a new home. He was always very responsive and worked hard to take care of everything. Something that I also appreciate about Clark is that he takes care of the little things too - he goes the extra mile to make sure that you (the client) are happy.

      - Megan Minter
    • Clark did a wonderful job helping us sell our condo. He was called in after our original agent had a family situation. Clark came up to speed quickly and was very responsive and complete. He anticipated problems so they did not become problems. He was quick to answer the phone and reply to texts and emails. His experience really showed and it helped us sell quickly for full price with no problems at closing.

      - Prestin
    • Clark is an A+ pro! He knew what we were looking for and helped us find it! He knows the area like the back of his hand, responded to every email or phone call with prompt, useful and knowledgeable information! I will, and have, recommend him to everyone I know!

      - Jason
    • AMAZING! Clark was fantastic. My husband and I just bought a home and thanks to Clark, got the deal of a lifetime. He helped us through the short sale process and did everything he needed to do at every step along the way. He took us to look at the home the second it hit the market, even though it was a terribly snowy day. He said that no one would be out and we could get our contract in before anyone else. He was right! The process was a roller coaster ride that lasted about 2 months. He helped us and encouraged us to have a back up plan incase the deal did not go through. He allowed us to make offers that we were comfortable with and gently guided us along the way. He was incredibly easy to talk to and responded to texts and calls immediately. He would even talk with me on the phone in depth about offers, counter-offers and everything in between. We are so pleased and it is all thanks to Clark. I was so afraid to work with a realtor because I have heard horror stories, but Clark is the way to go. He even offered to hold our baby while were were looking at homes! And to top it all off, he gave us a gift of money toward our closing costs from his own commission. Thank you Clark!!! Lauren, Ryan, and Baby JR

      - Laren & Ryan
    • I can't say enough about how great Clark was during the sale of our house. I've known Clark a few years and have recommended him to my friends and co-workers and have received phenomenal feedback on his support. Naturally, when it was time for us to sell, we went with Clark. He made it as easy as it could be, his suggestions, market knowledge and business knowledge was spot on. His marketing of the house was perfect and he eaisly handled all of our requests and changes. In the end, he sold the house in a week, negotiated a rent back, worked all the details, and was able to get us a sales price above our asking price. It couldn't have turned out better.

      - Mike
    • Clark was great! His knowledge of the area properties and amenities was unsurpassed. He was patient with us as first time home buyers, and made sure we were not only comfortable with the process but also that any unanswered questions we had were answered. I unconditionally recommend Clark as a Realtor

      - Michelle
    • Clark helped me buy my first home. My overall experience was very pleasant. His greatest strength is that he is patient, knows his area and will never push you. His expert advise always helped me, exactly what you need from your agent. I would not hesitate a bit to recommend Clark to anyone.

      - Sunny Goy
    • Clark is a terrific Real Estate Professional !! He has "up to the minute knowledge and a very comprehensive understanding of the market and it's nuances. Often, various properties within a block or two will have different value drivers and Clark knows why. He has been quick and efficient on his processing of transactions; listings, updates, sales & purchases. He negotiates well and tries to offer optional approaches to issues. We have come to value Clark as a friend as well as a Real Estate Professional.One of the Best ..............

      - Don & Donna
    • Clark assisted me with a condo purchase in Old Town this year and is a fabulous realtor. He not only helped with the offer process, but also provided excellent guidance on hardwood floors, insurance, mortgage providers, and tons of other support. He was also very patient with my indecisiveness. I am quite certain there is no other realtor around who is such a trusted source in all aspects of the home buying process!

      - Karen
    • I was referred by a friend who had just purchased a home before me. Clark was very professional. As I was looking in VA coming from MD, I was not familiar with the areas and he was very knowledgable. Clark was helpful in filtering out specifically what I was looking for. He was very attentitive and responded to emails and phone calls. Once I found what I wanted, he was great about explaining all the documentation and answering all my questions. My house was a short sale that required additional work. He was always a step ahead making sure everything was complete, even to go as far as helping the selling realtor who was unfamiliar in selling short sale homes. If I move again I well definitly list my home with Clark as well as refer him to friends and family.

      - Kevin
    • Clark is by far the best realtor in Northern Virginia. Clark is the awesome, never pushy and always patient. He worked with us to find the perfect home for our family, it took us close to 2 years to bite the bullet! Not because he wasn't finding great properties, but because we were quite particular about what we were looking for in our home. Clark took the time to listen to us and quickly ascertained our style and showed us great properties along the way. He also helped us navigate the offer process like the seasoned professional that he is. We loved that he's been doing this long enough to know how to negotiate and place strong offers on our behalf. He also helped us with listing a rental property and we find an awesome tenant with his listing. We would and have recommended him time and time again.

      - Michael
    • Clark helped us avoid pitfalls in a tricky real estate market that enabled us to purchase our dream home. He's well respected in the real estate community and his connections with other agents and service providers is very helpful in smoothing out the process.

      - Eric K
    • I cannot say enough about Clark as a real estate agent but also as a person. He is a joy to work with and he knows his job extremely well. Because of Clarks hard work and endless patience we didn't have to settle for a "starter home". As first time home buyers we got everything we wanted in a price we could afford. Amazingly, we had to put in 7 offers and it took 8 months before our offer was finally accepted, and each time Clark had to redo all the paperwork, but he didn't discourage us once. He stuck with us and we found ourselves toasting our new house with Clark after the sellers finally accepted. We truly believe we wouldn't have our house if it wasn't for him. He went above and beyond anything we expected. He truly deserves his real estate of year award!

      - Jessie & Meagan
    • Clark has helped us in a variety of ways over the past 7 years and has always been very responsive to any issues, questions or concerns we may have. Living 600 miles from this home, Clark and his team are very responsive to renters needs or my needs to have a professional come to the house for repairs.

      - Beth & Matt
    • Clark Smith was wonderful to work with from the begining! We got his name from my sister and her husabnd who also used him to find their home! Even though we were looking for something much less expensive than what my sister and brother inlaw purchased we still recieved the same care and attention he had given my sister! Clark was with us every step of the way. When we finally found our "dream" house, He helped us with a very slow loan person that we had chosen to go with. He was very patient and nudged the loan officer when he needed a little pushing! He also worked with the other agent to make sure we got the house even after our contract deadline was missed! I can't say enough GREAT things about Clark! He will be the only agent we work with from now on!
