    • Sheila was wonderful to work with. She staged our home to perfection and we sold our home sooner then expected. I would highly recommend her.

      - Dee MiIlar
    • I could not have asked for a better realtor! Lacey Beauvais is amazing. I purchased 2 houses and without Lacey's help and advise it wouldn't have happened.

    • Shelia was great to work with. We were so indecisive and we took forever to find our home. We were afraid she would drop us. Will look to her when we sell or buy again. Thanks!!!!!

      - Alesha & Kevin Powers
    • Sheila and her staff were very professional, knowledgeable and patient with us during the home buying process. We would definitely use her again and recommend her to family and friends.

      - Sarah Wilson
    • This is our second experience with Sheila and her team and they did not disappoint! You definitely get the feeling that Sheila is working for you. Could not recommend her more.

      - Bruce Sanders
    • Shelia and team were very knowledgeable. They helped us stage and ready our house for sale. When it hit the market it went fast and with a favorable outcome. All around great experience.

      - Jeremy Battershell
    • As a first time home buyer I was overwhelmed and quite honestly frightened about the very idea of buying a house, however, those feelings quickly diminished and eventually disappeared altogether while working with Sheila. I had several friends buy homes within the previous few years, they all used Sheila and all HIGHLY recommended her! She held my hand and walked me through the entire process from start to close. In fact, she was there for me even after the close any time I needed advice. She is very patient, understanding, and caring when it comes to her clients. She helped me find the PERFECT house for myself- I couldn't be happier. I wouldn't even consider buying another property without Sheila at my side!

    • We sold our home from out of state and Sheila and co. were very helpful with all the things you take for granted while living in town. She was very accommodating in helping get inspections set up, repair work completed and checked on, along with many other things. I would highly recommend Shelia if you're selling your home!

      - Steve Walteschied
    • I am a former realtor and couldn't have been more happy with Sheila. I short saled my home, and as those of us that have been through the process, know it can be very difficult. Sheila always did what she said she would keeping you informed even though there was nothing new. When the banks arent responding and figuring out what theyare going to do, taking their pretty little time while we sit around stressed out everyday, was simply put at ease because of Sheilas prompt phone calls, knowledge, and amazing attitude!! Do yourself a favor and hire her! Her whole crew is amazing!

      - P S
    • Sheila was wonderful at helping us narrow down and choose a place that would be perfect for our family. She spent time driving us around throughout the area so we could get a feel for the area. She and and everyone she recommended we work with were professional and made our home purchase as smooth as possible.

      - Yanette Traver
    • Lacey who works on Sheila Smith's Team represented us on the sale and the purchase of our new home. She did an outstanding job! Very professional, knowledgable, available and reliable. Also, a shout out to their Transaction Coordinator Jen who was always responsive to us and on top of things in every step of the closing process. We would highly recommend them and the Sheila Smith Team to anyone needing an agent to sale or purchase a home. Thanks again ladies!

      - The Taylors
    • Theres a moment right before I decided to contact a realtor where I wondered- could I just do this on my own? With websites like Zillow, We can take virtual tours of houses, coordinate visits and ultimately choose a house without the help of a licensed agent. How hard is it to negotiate? Im writing this review while sitting in the living room of my beautiful home here in Boise, which would not have been possible without the consulting of Lacey Beauvais, a realtor for Sheila Smith Real Estate. As I reflect on my initial inclination of taking on the role of being my own realtor, Im a bit embarrassed about how much I misunderstood the role of a realtor and I have an immense amount of gratitude to have worked with someone who had my best interests in mind and made every accommodation to ensure the process was enjoyable. Its difficult to describe all of the ways a great realtor can make purchasing a home enjoyable. They connect with you and understand your preferences and corks. In an attempt to be more concrete, here are my top three reasons I would recommend Lacey Beauvais and Shelia Smith Real Estate. Maximize Your Time: House hunting is not for the faint of heart. There was a point where wed visit listings and be crushed because the pictures and descriptions online looked amazing but the actual residences were underwhelming. Lacey cataloged our interests and helped find the intersection of aesthetic, price and location. House hunting takes time and effort. They ensure that the majority of your time is spent in houses that interest you.Keep Perspective: Im sure most people go about buying their home with a clear(ish) picture of what they want and resolution that they would never settle. So did we. Lets be real- the sky is not the limit. We had a limited budget, desired location and preferred style. Its difficult to keep all three in the front of mind. When you get decision fatigue, Shelia Smith Real Estate will ensure that you dont go soft of the qualities that matter most. They arent trying to get you into a house. They are trying to get you into your house. Win Your Refrigerator: This is an inside joke but it highlights the importance of choosing a great realtor. When its time to negotiate price and whether or not the sellers will leave their refrigerator, you need someone who will go to bat for you. Once we found the perfect house and entered the final negotiations, Lacey insisted that we only pay a set amount and not a dollar more and stand firm on the few extras that would save us resources. One item being a new fridge. The sellers were steadfast on keeping the fridge but Lacey never backed down. Sheila Smith Real Estate cares for their clients and works in their best interest. It seems silly now to think that I could have ended up in my current house without their support. Without an ounce of hesitation Id recommend anyone to work with Sheila Smith Real Estate. Best, Obliged Homeowners

    • I worked with Sheila and Lacey in summer/Fall of 2014 for my second house purchase. I was extremely impressed with Sheila's team in helping me find my dream house. After owning my starter home for 4 years, I knew exactly what I wanted. Sheila and her team understood my requirements and showed me houses that I was very impressed with. The whole process for stress free and on top of it, fun. Sheila's expert advice has now made me generate passive income from my rental property as well. I am thoroughly impressed with the amount of knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm she bring into this process. Thanks Sheila and looking forward to working with you in the future as well.

    • Sheila Smith was recommended to me as the realtor for me to use for services I needed out of state. After selling 2 properties through her, I can honestly say that she exceeded all my expectations. I never felt as if she was "pushing" me, on the contrary, I felt she always had my back as the seller. She focused on my satisfaction with all transactions. When I had a question, she immediately had the answer. She and her team are really great and honest to work with and made the out-of-state transactions very easy for me. I can honestly recommend Sheila. - Anita GorinoWonderful realtor, responded to all our requests and questions in a timely fashion, very knowledgeable about the process and the area. We both bought and sold a house with Sheila. We had an offer on our house in 12 days, she helped stage it and gave great advise about what improvements to make.

      - Rich & Elizabeth Summer
    • I was planning a move to Boise area without having family, friends or a job to help with the process. While I had an idea of the type of house I wanted and at what price, I did not know the areas in which to focus my search nor did I have a realtor. I had saved several home listings that looked promising. Sheila Smith's name came up often in online references. Having settled upon three agents to interview by phone, the process began. Sheila was willing to take on the challenge of an out-of-state, long-distance home search. She was quick to review the listings I had pulled and understand my core requirements. She had experience with other out of area clients and had the local expertise to quickly match a client to several possible neighborhoods and, she offered to dedicate her time during a three day visit to maximize my search effort. Overtime we found several homes that meant the overall requirements. In addition to her constant support and searching, Sheila has built in outstanding office support team that make showings in the contract follow-up paperwork process smoother and efficient. She is an effective negotiator and keeps her focus on trying to reach an agreement. After going under contract, and her knowledge and experience truly comes to light. The inspection process repeatedly uncovered several major issues that a lesser experienced agent might have not recognized as a significant and expensive to correct. She also had a capable support team of contractors and trades who helped distinguished the depth of the problems and give high-level estimates of repair costs on short notice. She was not reluctant to advise stopping the contract process when the issues warranted. I felt that my best interest were being kept front and center. Sheila has developed relationships with local agents that allow her to quickly and accurately read a sales situation and find the best opportunities for her clients eliminate listings that show low promise. In my case the elements of relationship and timing was critical piece of the transaction. My experience is the basis for my recommendation of Sheila Smith.

    • Lacey was great! Always timely and responsive. Made time to work around my needs and schedule. I would definitely recommend Lacey and the Sheila Smith group to others. As a first time home buyer they made everything extremely easy for me.

      - Benjamin Dalton
    • We recently bought a house in Boise through Sheila Smith Real Estate. Our Realtor was Lacey Beauvais. She was amazing, knowledgeable, and friendly. Everyone we dealt with at Sheila Smith Real Estate was professional and friendly as well as helpful and knew their stuff! We had one bid fall through on a house we loved, and Lacey pulled a listing out of the pile of houses we had originally rejected. She suggested we look at this house based on our tastes and it turned out to be the one! We have absolutely no complaints about working with Lacey and Sheila Smith Real Estate and would highly, highly recommend them for anyone looking to purchase a house anywhere in the Boise area. Overall our experience as first time home buyers was phenomenal.

      - Kate Willie
    • Sheila and her team are an absolute dream to work with! She handled the sale of our home flawlessly and our home was a bit of a challenge. On top of that, we had already moved out of state. I felt confident that every aspect of our listing and sale was being taken care of. Sheila and her team went above and beyond our expectations by far. Professional, compassionate and reliable, I would highly highly recommend her and plan on being her client again if we ever can get back to the Boise area! Thank you Sheila and Jenn!!

      - Kimberly Walterscheid
    • My family and I moved from out of state to Boise and knew absolutely no one in town. We lucked into finding Sheila online and now can't imagine what would have happened had we found someone else! She was just fantastic; we were on a very tight timeline but Sheila stepped up to the challenge. She showed us not just houses but neighborhoods during the one day we had to look at houses; by doing so, she helped us understand more about schools, neighborhood personalities, etc. She was also exceptionally prompt in returning phone calls, answering emails, following up with paperwork, etc. -- and, most importantly, in answering our questions as time-crunched, first-time home buyers. We absolutely *love* our house and realize we wouldn't have had such an easy transition were it not for Sheila. I really feel like she worked to help us find a house that fit our family vs. trying to sell us something we didn't want or need. On top of it, she helped with all those non-official questions, like ... what day cares are good near our house, whom to hire for lawn care, where the heck should we get pizza from until our dishes arrive with the moving truck, etc. I honestly can't imagine how we could have had a better experience! Sheila's more like a really great person who rocks as a realtor vs. a really great realtor who you may not want to know otherwise. We can't recommend her highly enough! :)

    • I have just bought my dream home and I am very grateful to Sheila Smith and her team for making it happen. I signed the papers and provided the finance, and Sheila did everything else. Sheila's use of Docusign allows you to sign documents at home and shows her desire to stay abreast of new developments in her field. This will be the third real estate transaction that we have completed in the 9 years I have known her. I hope others have had smooth sailing in their real estate dealings; but, while mine have finished successfully, there have been snags to be dealt with. Sheila knows the process and how to maneuver it. More than once a financial institution has wanted to play footsie with the rules. Sheila knew exactly what they were doing and made them toe the line. One financial institution was being difficult by not approving buyers. Sheila contacted an investor she knew who paid cash. Approve that! I am a retired professional with a good education, but reading the sales contracts, title and insurance documents gives me brain collapse. Sheila can read, understand and explain why you should or should not be concerned. Doing this, her eagle eye caught a problem with a title. She got it corrected, so it wouldnt cause trouble down the line. If she needs an interpretation or more information, she has a team of experts who come into play. I could go on about Sheila's qualities, but I think you will understand why she inspires my complete confidence. Thank you Sheila.

      - Dennis McGaha
    • Sheila was a true professional right from the moment I called her to ask her to discuss selling my home. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sheila, her staff and the web site. Sheila did her homework in regards to my home, the area and the current market. Communication about every step of the process in addition to my needs as the seller were top notch. Within 10 days of being on the market wigh Sheila my home was SOLD. I would recommended Sheila and her team to anyone.

      - Matt Metcalf
    • Sheila and her team exceeded our expectations. It felt as though we were shopping for a house with a friend rather than a realtor. They made the home buying process fun, which was no small feat considering we were expecting our first baby at the time. Our little girl arrived shortly before we closed, and Lacey showed up to closing with a pink basket of clothes, blankets and hair bows. It was so thoughtful and sweet and indicative of the level of service you'll get with Sheila Smith Real Estate.

      - Ana Straver
    • Sheila was an amazing realtor for us! She just helped us buy a place in the North End and it is clear that she really has so much knowledge about the North End and surrounding areas. We were very picky and had a hard time agreeing on a place but she did not give up, offered so many other services along the way to support us and in the end, found us a house that was exactly what we both were looking for!

      - Lauren Symmonds
    • Sheila is simply the best. She knows this area so well and can give you the scoop on any location. Not only was she patient with us being so picky, but she would meet us several times on the weekend or if a house just popped up in the market. Her team handles all documents and issues with professionalism and we have already recommended her to friends and family. She's also freaking hilarious and fun to be around so it's never dull!

      - Kole SUmmer
    • She was so awesome her and her team responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had...was very thorough in whatever they talked about...and gave their honest opinion...example...when we went to look at a house..Lacey pointed out that the foundation was in horrible condition..

      - Priscilla Rayburn
    • Sheila and her team were amazing to work with! They helped us navigate my first home sale ever and on top of that it was a short sale and we moved out of state when we put the house on the market. We put all our trust in her and went with all her recommendations. This took the stress off us (between a new job and our move we had enough on our plates!). The results speak for themselves. The banks knew to contact Sheila and her team and avoided bothering me for the most part. Our home sold and everything worked out great. We are so happy and pleased with Sheila and her team. Thank you!

      - Andrew Cibor
    • Sheila and her staff were amazing and my home sold in four days. Their staging, with my own furniture, made all the difference. I have recommended her and will continue to do so.

      - Linda Blaimires
    • We had a very good experience with Lacey. She was quick to respond and always available. She had good knowledge of the process and was very helpful in providing us with the information we needed to make our decision. I would definitely recommend her.

      - K Surthi
    • Sheila represented us in a very professional manner. Her knowledge of real estate was impressive. She had excellent negotiation skills and is a "fireball" in every aspect.

      - Jacayln Ramsey
    • Sheila listened to what we wanted and needed as a family. So when house hunting, she picked out things about the house that did not meet our needs so we wouldn't buy the wrong house. She noticed little things that we did not and we appreciated her opinion. We never felt pressured to buy a house but rather encouraged to hunt for the right one. We would work with her again.

      - Rachael & James Lyons
    • I listed my house in November. Sheila and her staff all worked very hard to keep me informed regarding the status of the listing. I closed the deal in May, and would certainly use this agency again.I've bought/sold many houses. She if the best, most honest agent I've ever worked with.

      - Deb Paige
    • Sheila and crew really went above and beyond our expectations to help us find a new place! There were a few hiccups closing and they helped us the entire way through.

      - Joesph Barton
    • Sheila is an amazing realtor! She listens intently to what you are looking for in a home; she works tirelessly, and communicates with you often. The unexpected challenges that arise during the home buying process do not deter her. All of these traits combined with her business savvy, attention to detail, and great sense of humor make her a joy to work with. I am a fan of hers for life!

      - Trina Dykas
    • Sheila was our realtor for both the purchase of a new house and the sale of our old. She priced the old house perfectly. Our buyer's realtor was , to put it nicely, very detail oriented. This raised a number of issues, not the least of which was an attempt to have us fix a sewer leak that was non existent and on city property. Sheila handled this without confrontation and with eventual good outcome. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor that really knows how to navigate through the sometimes challenging Boise real estate market

      - Wes Arlien
    • Lacy is very easy to work with. She always responded quickly. Listen to my needs. Works more for the client than her own personal gain. She is a realtor with a "heart!"

      - Peacherwb
    • We really liked the web site. It provided in depth data to each listing many other sites did not provide.The mapping is a little weak, so we typically used another mapping service to get overhead views.Lacey spent a week driving us around the Boise/Meridian/Nampa area so we could familiar with the metro area. (we were from another state.) We looked at lots of houses, but at the time nothing fit. Lacey was very patient, with us, and was not pushy and did not pressure us to make a decision. This was our 4th house to own and we had a pretty specific list of requirements. Finally we moved to the Boise area, and found a house within a week. We are very happy with this realtor and the service that was provided.

      - Mike Miller
    • Working with Sheila and her team was great from start to finish. She had good recommendations as to what to do before listing our house, which we followed. The house was vacant, so they staged it with furniture she provided and it looked fabulous. I couldn't believe what a difference it made. The photos she had taken for the internet really captured how nice the house was, and we had two offers almost immediately. We sold the house in West Boise quickly, and the closing process went smoothly. I highly recommend her and will use her services again if we are ever again in the market.

      - Sue Maynard
    • Sheila Smith answered all our questions and requests in a very timely manner. She went above and beyond the call of duty. Her associate was unable to meet with us one day and Sheila stepped up to the plate andshowed us several houses and answered all our questions. She did some research to help us find a good agent where we were living so that we could list and sell our house...she recommended an excellent agent who sold our house in one day.

      - Bill & Becky Rowland
    • Sheila Smith is an outstanding realtor! She comes highly recommended, and after working with her I certainly understand why she receives such high ratings. She is bright, pleasant, and personable. She also is industrious and diligent and has a strong work ethic. She gives sound advice. She works beautifully with clients and other realtors. We are glad that we listed this property with Sheila and delighted that she generated a sale. I am pleased to wholeheartedly recommend Sheila Smith!

      - D Parkins
    • Sheila Smith is wonderful! She has helped me sell a family home, buy and sell a small patio home and helped my son & his wife buy and sell two homes. Sheila knows the greater Boise area inside and out and is able to truly listen to your needs and find you the perfect home. Her staff are also a big asset - they keep the paperwork in order and keep you apprised of where the process stands, make appointments, and make sure you're doing what needs to be done to complete the sale/purchase. Bottom line - if you want a great realtor in the Boise Area - you can do no better than Sheila Smith!

    • Lacey Beauvais is an extremely awesome realtor! She helped me assist a family member with selling her home and finding the right fit for a new home to purchase. Lacey was a skilled communicator making sure everyone was kept in the information loop. Her professionalism was top notch and her patience is amazing. I feel so blessed that we had an opportunity to work with such an awesome realtor that helped us with absolutely every step of the process. Thank you for the outstanding service Lacey!

      - Previous Buyer
    • We had the pleasure of being assisted by Anna Hatfield and Sheila Smith in the purchase of our home. We can't thank both of these professionals enough for all of their help, support and persistence! AWESOME!

      - Bosie Boom
    • A lot of people say that they will "go the extra mile," but Lacey Beauvais literally walked a quarter-mile through hip-deep snowdrifts to show me homes during the record snowfalls this past winter. As a real estate investor, I work with many realtors, and Lacey is definitely one of the best, she helped me buy two great rental properties here with very good value. She certainly knows her market, is easy to work with, and the entire team worked together to make these very smooth, efficient transactions.

      - Salwash
    • Lacey staged our home so beautifully I almost wanted to move back in :) Of course we did sell it, and it was only on the market for two days. It was such an easy process and anytime I emailed or texted Lacey, she always quickly responded. We already referred her to other friends who are now listing their home. We will for sure refer others selling or buying to Lacey. When we buy again we will come to you! Thank you for everything,

      - Kimberly Lister
    • Lacey found me a great house being auctioned to purchase and restore. She gave me amazing ideas appropriate for the circumstances of my purchase. I then worked with both Lacey and Sheila to conduct due diligence. Their referrals were awesome. They helped me with everything from comps to closing. As someone extremely picky with whom I work, I think they are a great team!

    • Sheila and her agency were excellent handling the sale of my home. I didn't expect it to be so easy... finding buyers, negotiating, the paper work, but Sheila was outstanding in her willingness and ability to handle the sale. And her system of constant communication with me, almost daily, was efficient and timely. Thanks Sheila and your office, for making it so easy

    • Sheila, Lacey and Jenn make a great team! I'd use them again in the future, and be sure to recommend them. We had a special house in mind and took time looking for that special one. Lacey made sure to get us into all the homes and give us the scoop on the neighborhood and surrounding areas. Great team, great knowledge, trusted the process the whole time knowing they were looking out for us on our big purchase.

      - Samantha Strasser
    • Our house sold in less than 15 days on the market! The Sheila Smith team was on top of things every step of the way.
