Listed and sold a home
If you want to sell your home for a fair price and within a reasonable amount of time, call Courtney. From our first meeting with her, we received valuable advice for preparing our property for listing and a good overview of what to expect. The pictures she had taken of our property were gorgeous and were critical to attracting the strong attention our home received. Courtney is smart, knows the local market, and provides excellent service.

Courtney handled the seasonal rental of my property for the past two years. She and her associates are very professional in every way. She has very thorough knowledge of the local real estate market.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I called Courtney to inquire about hiring her as my agent after reading many favorable reviews of her service on zillow. She was immediately very abrupt on the phone, as if I was bothering her. I asked her a few questions about Palm Beach Co real estate (I am an out of state buyer). She seemed annoyed. After a few minutes, she said "Is this enough? Do you want to move forward or can I move on to someone else?". She clearly knows at least a minimal amount about local real estate (she didn't spend enough time with me to know more than that). But I have never dealt with such a lack of professionalism. Perhaps I caught her on a bad day, but inexcusable. Less ... More
Response fromCourtney Smitheman
I remember this very clearly. The call came in just after 9am, about 20 mins before a scheduled listing appt. I had one foot out the door, but turned back to take the call. I ALWAYS TAKE TIME TO SPEAK WITH NEW CLIENTS! I was told this was an interview & asked how to balance purchasing a 2nd home in PBG that could be used as a vacation rental. Easy to answer since our office manages hundreds of rentals. Our landlords entrust us to provide the best guidance to maximize ROI. We provide construction & cleaning services, rent collection, pay tourist tax, online advertising, etc. Calculator in hand, I did an overview of seasonal vs off seasonal rates, annual carrying cost, how to positive cash flow in the RIGHT neighborhood. I had been taking notes during our call. I explained that I had another appt & asked enough info was provided to move forward. This call was a job interview. I asked if I got the job! I didn't but wished her luck in her search. Still do. Less ... More

We knew little about the Jupiter market. We requested to see a variety of property types. We viewed many properties in one afternoon. Courtney listened to our comments ans suggested a property that was perfect. We purchased the propert she suggested . This was accomplished in one day of viewing. Her guidance through the process made it simple and was quick.

great group of professional rental individuals who are knowledgeable and have great listings.Their realtor Maria Rosado created a listing with great photos and got me a tenant within weeks. The rent amount for the property was $5,500 per month and I was very pleased that she and her associates brought a qualified tenant and prepared the contract. I was very happy with the whole arrangement. Their advice and experience is appreciated.

Courtney was the agent I selected to help me buy a townhouse. We were very specific on what we were looking for and what we wanted to pay AND we had a very small geographic area in mind. Once Courtney understood us, we were only looking at properties that matched. Ultimately, we put an offer on a townhouse sight unseen based solely on Courtney's advice. That trust was extended when we asked Courtney to help find us a great tenant for the property. That great tenant moved in 3 weeks after close. Less ... More

I had a GREAT experience with Courtney! She is super professional and really knows her stuff. I was a first time home buyer and I don't know what I would have done without her. She really looked out for me and had my best interest in mind. She held my hand throughout the entire process and made everything very easy for me. She is incredibly hard working and does a great job taking care of her customers. I have been in my new house for 3 months now and I absolutley love it. BEST REALITOR IN THIS AREA HANDS DOWN!

We have used Courtney for handling our rental unit and buying another investment property. She exceeded our expectations in both dealings. With the rental, she found the perfect match for us. We live out of town and never had to worry about the property. Courtney and her team took care of everything from day one. They very were professional and knowledgable. We have been looking for another investment property. Again, Courtney has gone above and beyond!! I would never hesitate to recommend Courtney and her associates. Less ... More

It has been a pleasure to work with Courtney and her staff at Crane Reed. As soon as you begin to speak with Courtney, you can tell she knows her trade. She is very knowledgeable , she responds immediately to your questions. If you have a question about a property , she will go to the property , take multiple pictures, send them to you and give you her honest opinion about the property. She does not try to pressure you in any way and does not get rattled during the process. I highly recommend Courtney and her staff at Crane Reed. Less ... More

Courtney Smitheman was the most responsive real estate agent I have ever worked with. We bought a bank owned property in 2010 in Tequesta while living in Denver. Courtney was invaluable making this happen. She went above and beyond, helping arrange for us to meet lawyers and contractors. We could not have been more pleased with her assistance. Courtney was totally professional in every way and I am enthusiastic in recommending her. She is a delightful person to deal with and is of very high moral character. In buying or selling I would go to her first and foremost. Less ... More

Courtney was extremely helpful with the purchase of our South Florida home located in Jupiter Florida. She was nice enough to put up with my wife's demands throughout the whole process. Helped us with getting the home at the price that we wanted, worked with the seller, the banks and all of the mortgage people to make our dream a reality. I would highly recommend this lady to help with anyone's needs.. She gets a 10 * in our book.. thanks Courtney for all your help..

Our relationship with Courtney began a little over a month ago and we immediately recognized her skill as a real estate professional, especially with regard to her knowledge of the area, pleasant personality and apparent desire to help us find our new home. I can predict when we move in she will have served us and Crane Reed with complete professionalism and satisfaction.

Our experiences with Courtney, have been nothing but positive in all regards. She has shown complete professionalism, in conjunction with a pleasant attitude and personality. Courtney gets the job done and goes above and beyond what the average realtor has done for us in the past. We'll certainly call upon Courtney again when the need arises, and continue to recommend her to anyone who's looking for a true "expert" in the field.
