I've worked with Smart Choice Reality twice in the past year and everything went perfect. Samara our listing agent met me each time at the property to do a walk through. She would make a few suggestions that would help get the most out of the sale and was I thankful!! My average offer was almost 10% over asking price. Plus, why spend 5-6% to list and sell a house when Smart Choice can do it at a fraction of the cost.

Smart Choice realty is the only way to sell your house. Don’t let another realtor company rob you of thousands given the tradition total 6% commission. This new business model is the way to do it. With Smart Choice’s low commission , in the end, the commission is only 3.5%.Bottom line….go with Smart Choice realty if you want to keep more of your money. Don’t lose it all in commission.

I heard about Smart Choice Realty through a good friend of mine, who spoke highly of one of the realtors, Claudia Roberts. When I met with her I had no idea that I could get from my home, what she said, or not even near it. Ms. Roberts always answered my calls, she was always professional and when I did get an offer, I would tell her my thoughts and with her professionalism she would tell me hers. Needless to say I am 100% satisfied with all of my choices we made together. I would definitely use them again if I need to.

My family has used this real estate broker for several transactions including listing and buying. We had many good experiences on both sides of the table including expediency and flexibility. I only took off the one star because our first real estate transaction was near the start of the business and there were some miscommunications that made the experience more stressful BUT I also realize that the onus of selling and buying a home belongs primarily to the home owner/buyer and no one else. Realtors and financial institutions are merely tools that have had to shoulder more accountability since consumers have forgotten or simply are ignorant of their homework and do not realize that they have full agency in the process.

Last spring it became I realized that I should retire earlier than I planned. We decided to sell our home and move from Raleigh. I have known Samara Pressley for years and she was the first person I contacted. She came to my home and made recommendations how to get it ready to sell. We had lived in our home 32 years and welcomed her advice. Our home sold the second day on the market. Before closing, we were hit with several obstacles we had not anticipated. Samara stood by us and practically held our hands through the process. Samara is professional, communicative, thorough and will not back down to unreasonable expectations from the sellers. I would not recommend anybody other than Smart Choice Realty!

Smart Choice Reality was recommended to us by a friend and it was the best recommendation we've ever received! Samara and team sold my home in under a week and we were lucky enough to get above asking price due to multiple offers. I feel they understand the market well enough to advise their sellers on upgrades, pricing and expectation. 100% honest and so easy to work with. Communication was never a problem, always there for you when you have questions and very forthcoming with guidance throughout the selling and buying process. Our buying experience was equally impressive and they found my family the perfect house, in the perfect place and we were able to get it for below list price! Again, everyone is super knowledgeable and helpful. Smart Choice will take care of you, highly recommended!
