Jeremy Smith
HomeSmith Realty
About Jeremy

As a native Texan, I'd love to show you the lay of the land. Buying and selling your home can be one of the biggest events in your life, and I feel honored to help families find a home, not just a place to live. I want to guide you through the process in a way that takes the stress out of it and lets you stop and smell the roses. "I want it to be fun!" for you and your family. From a family with 7 realtors, I suppose I was learning lots about real estate even before I was in the biz. Licensed in 2003, my family has also relocated many times since then, so I definitely know what it's like to be on both sides of the closing table. When you're looking for the right realtor, you want someone with competency and professionalism, but you also want someone who is truly listening and attentive to your needs. I want to EARN your trust, and will work overtime to help find the home that is the perfect fit for your family.

HomeLight ranks Mike as one of the top 1% of agents in Austin for successfully selling homes and as one of the top agents who are able to successfully complete transactions.

With the proper data and market information, you can make an informed decision that you can feel good about and have better chances of making the right investment. You will never get a sales pitch from us at Atlas Realty. With me you can count on courteous service, prompt return of calls and emails, and a dedication to making sure my clients understand the process. I will listen to your goals and needs and try to find a way to make it happen. I look forward to an opportunity to earn your business. Have a great day! Mike has closed over 1250 transactions since 2000 and represents buyers and sellers at about a 50/50 ratio. With well over 300 5+ online reviews there are very few individual agents that even come close (Google Mike Minns to see more information).

What does a top real estate agent do?

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in The Hills?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in The Hills?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in The Hills, TX.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in The Hills?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
