DL | Dallas-Lakewood


Wow!  Thanks again Alan for your help, this time with the home buying process.  You sold my home in just 4 days and for top dollar a few years back but now it was time to find another home.  Your Buyer program was so stress free.  It was easy, you didn’t badger me to buy something you let me have my process.

You knew my situation this time around was unique but you patiently walked me through step by step.  Recommending the right people for legal, financial or title questions.  Your communication was excellent.  As you said, you didn’t want to bother me just to be there when the time was right for me.  What you said is what you did.

And when things did get a little stressful you calmly broke it down into simple steps.

Your home finding technology was amazing.  Delivering me up-to-date information on homes so when I was ready we were able to find my home quickly.

What’s amazing is it was easier to buy a home with you than to get cable TV or phone service!

I love my home and appreciate you.

I’m not a 1st time buyer so I was really impressed with Alan’s level of service which was outstanding and I felt like a true VIP! Unlike my other agents he didn’t just promise me great service he guaranteed it in writing and told me I could fire him during the process if I wasn’t happy.

His home search program provided daily email alerts when a home matching my criteria was for sale. I was able to select the homes that I wanted to see.

Alan’s communication was great. He kept me informed on what was happening throughout the process without being too overwhelming. I felt that my home buying needs were his priority. The process went smoothly even with a couple of bumps along the way that Alan got resolved quickly and to my satisfaction. I closed on-time and within my budget which makes me happy.
I would definitely recommend Alan to help you buy a home or sell. Thanks Alan you rock!

East Dallas RealtorAlan was awesome to work with. As 1st time buyers we were a little worried about the whole process, but Alan promised us a “worry free” process and backed it up with written performance guarantees

He didn’t just make empty promises Alan guaranteed his promises in writing and delivered on them! Alan, we love our new home!

Oak Lawn Real Estate Agent

Even though I was referred to Alan by my sister and brother-in-law I was a little frightened about committing to one Realtor®.

What if he wasn’t the right one? Well, Alan was perfect for me.

Instead of just making promises Alan guarantees his promises in writing! Thanks again Alan for the perfect home.

Real Estate Agent Lakewood

Great System!!!   Alan had helped us with our 1st home 7 years ago.  We needed more space so we called him to help us sell our home.   The Alan brings a lot of tools to the table.

His system had many options and his state of the art system worked. Tired of the typical marketing done by most real estate agents, Alan is not afraid to do something different which is what we were looking for.  Thanks, Alan!

After receiving a contract on our home in just 33 days we had to quickly find another home.  Alan took down our exact home buying criteria and put it into his proprietary system. Like clockwork we received daily email updates of the homes that matched our exact criteria.

We saved time with his program because we didn’t receive hundreds of homes that we weren’t interested in and worse risk missing out on the perfect home.  This allowed us to drive by each home that we had an interest in and then we contacted Alan to see inside the ones we really liked.

Not only did we find our perfect home but Alan’s expertise helped us save more than $29,000.

Debbie S. | Owner of Make My Life Simplified | Dallas- M Streets

Working with Alan was incredible! During this difficult real estate market we contacted Alan to market our home.

He was direct about the market conditions and although we didn’t want to hear what he had to say he showed us the evidence of what was happening in our neighborhood.

We listed with Alan and had a contract in just 5 days for 98.4% of our list price.

T. Paromo | Dallas – Oak Cliff

Awesome!  As a single person I was overwhelmed with the thought of buying my first home, but I was tired of throwing my money away on rent.   I am so glad that I contacted Alan about buying a home.

He’s not the typical real estate agent; he educated me on the process of buying a home.  His mortgage expert found me a loan program that saved me $1000’s of dollars on my down payment and closing costs.  Now I’m building equity in my home – not my landlord’s.

Mr. & Mrs. Craig A. | Seattle

Christmas Bonus!  Everyone says not to sell your home during the holidays, but we had made the decision to sell.  Alan sat down with us and showed us what was happening in the market and specifically with our neighborhood.

We decided to market our home with Alan during the Christmas season.  With the right price and Alan’s tips for bringing top dollar we had a contract in 19 days and sold our home for 98.7% of the asking price.

A. Profit | Dallas-Lake Highlands on

Alan was wonderful to work with. His knowledge of the Lakewood, Lake Highlands area is extensive! We spent almost a year working with Alan trying to find the right home for our family (complicated by selling our San Antonio home). His expertise is not only in location but he also has insight into the quality of home materials and how all of it correlates with asking price.

Alan knows his market and knows how to help you negotiate offers, he will honestly advise you on what would be the best move. He also respected our budget. Our closing was complicated, and Alan was beside us the entire time. He was always available, even when on vacation, which I tried to avoid, but even during those times I would get a quick email response or phone call. Since the market is so hot here right now time is essential.

Alan was great when one day we said we wanted to see a just listed home that afternoon, he rearranged his schedule to show it to us within a couple of hours and we had an offer in the next day. If you are looking for an honest, personable and knowledgeable realtor I would recommend Alan without hesitation. In addition Alan knows some great local spots and has great recommendations for all kinds of services from local companies in the area. Would work with him again any day!

Jennifer Coldiron | Dallas-Old East Dallas on

As first time homebuyers, my husband and I truly appreciated Alan’s extensive East Dallas real estate and new build knowledge. Rain or shine, he was there by our side every step of the way getting to understand what we were really looking for, setting up home showings around our busy schedule, helping us navigate the buying and negotiating process and getting us into our dream home on our original timeline.

Thanks to Alan, buying our first house was a breeze and we feel confident in our

M. Crane | Dallas-Lake Highlands on

Alan helped our family home sell. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and about the entire process. He makes himself available and is easy to work with. We highly recommend Alan.

Gitesh Patel | Dallas-Lake Highlands on

Alan was great to work with. He not only helped us find a new home, he also helped us with the transaction of selling our home. He helped us determine what was a good fit for us and what was needed to update a home to our liking. Would definitely recommend!

Terry Lovell | Dallas-Lakewood on

I couldn’t recommend Alan Smith more highly. My wife and I were looking for a home, primarily in the Hollywood Heights/ Lakewood area, for more than a year. This was no fault of Alan’s. We were just particular in that we wanted a mid-century style, and that is very in demand right now. He had a great knowledge of the area, because he lives in Lakewood, and was always available. He set up a search portal that alerted us when any homes matching our criteria hit the market. This was an invaluable tool, as many of these homes were sold within a few days. Also, since it is a very hot market right now, we submitted a few offers on homes that we did not get. Darn bidding wars! But Alan was very patient with us, and he kept saying that he never had a client that regretted the ones that got away after finally finding their perfect home.

That held true for us as well. We couldn’t be happier with the home we finally purchased, and couldn’t have done it without Alan’s help. He helped to make the closing painless, and even provided us with a list of contractors, plumbers, painters, and electricians that he has compiled, and we were very happy with the work they did on our new home. We have used other realtors in the past, but this was by far our best experience. We don’t anticipate moving any time soon, but if the need arises, our first call will be to Alan Smith

Mike M. | Dallas-Casa Linda on

Alan helped my wife and I buy our Casa Linda Neighborhood home. Alan looked at many houses with a friend of ours while we were still living in Atlanta. Our specifications were a ranch with a two car garage and no alley in the White Rock area.

We flew in one weekend and looked at about 5 houses and made an offer that same weekend.. Alan told us what sort of offer to make.. I believe we would not have gotten the house if we had not taken Alan’s advice because there are so many offers on houses.

Alan recommended a good home inspector and a good loan company.. Everything went smoothly although getting a loan is always nerve wracking for me. I have no hesitation when recommending Alan. Thanks

Ann C. | Dallas-Lake Highlands on

Alan gave good support in helping me prepare my property. He replied promptly to all questions. He gave good advice on timing, pricing, and marketing. He was truthful and realistic. He treats each case individually. I recommend him.

D. Komuves | Richardson on

Alan made the selling and buying process very easy. I was sad to sell my home and Alan really helped to keep things in perspective so I made the best business decision vs an emotional one. Long after the sale and purchase of our home we continue to call on Alan for questions and he is always willing to help. We wouldn’t use anyone else for our real estate transactions.

T. Cunningham | Dallas

Alan-(my home guardian angel) Thank you for every call, showing, email & text since February.  I appreciate all of your guidance & assistance throughout this entire process. I’ve learned so much from you over the past couple of months and appreciate all the time you spent with my house search!  I’ll send pictures once I move in!! 

Justin and Meghan | Dallas-Lake Highlands

We were busy 1st time buyers who had been referred to Alan by some of our friends.  Even with a trusted referral there were naturally some reservations because we didn’t know Alan.

Alan put those to rest after our 1st meeting.  He began patiently explaining the process and his strategic buying plan.

He listened to our biggest concerns: not knowing how the process worked, finding the right home and the market hype over home prices and how quickly things were selling.

We learned that with Alan’s 25+years of experience and following his strategic buying plan that we could get the best property at the best price.

After agreeing to work with Alan the next step was financing.  He put us in touch with one of his mortgage professionals, Jeremy Radcliffe, who helped us through that meticulous process.  We closed on-time and without any problems or surprises.

Alan took notes of what features we were looking for and set us up in his Home Search Portal.  Wow, what amazing technology providing instant access and updates!  Compared to other websites we had been using the Portal was the best.  Its layout made seeing the info we wanted easy and we found it to be the most accurate and fastest in matching the available homes with our criteria.

He was there each step, answering our questions and preparing us for the next step.  We never felt rushed or pressured to buy a specific property and Alan’s local knowledge of East Dallas neighborhoods was a bonus. He also discussed the market hype we were concerned about by showing us actual market data which told a more realistic story.

Even in this hot market Alan helped us negotiate over $19,000 off our purchase price and closing costs.  He explained how offering the seller a leaseback could strengthen our offer.  We love our home!

If you are looking for an experienced REALTOR with a strategic plan to guide you through your homebuying process you need to contact Alan.

Thanks Alan for an exceptional experience!

Collis and Sarah | Dallas-M Streets

Alan helped us purchase our M Street home almost 3 years ago to the day.  We had an excellent buying experience with him so we wanted to talk with him about selling our beautiful home.  We are busy 1st-time parents so we had a lot on our mind and not sure what to do.

We had some concerns as I’m sure everyone does.  My wife was how to make our home “show ready” and allow showings around our newborn baby.  Mine was to avoid being an “overly greedy” seller yet still get top dollar.  As a former real estate agent and investor I knew that overpricing a home was the “kiss of death”.  I’ve seen a home stay on the market days or weeks longer than average and get stale.  Then after all that time, it would sell for much less than if it had been priced right from the beginning or worse not sell and expire off the market.

I was skeptical when Alan told us what he thought our home’s selling range was. Even in this hot market, it was $1000’s higher than we had expected.  But he discussed the general market trends and then specifically what was happening in our neighborhood.  He showed us the market data with photos of the homes currently on the market and those that had sold.

He outlined his Strategic Selling Plan.  He discussed the typical passive marketing most agents do and how he uses proactive marketing to help boost our home’s exposure.

Then he made specific recommendations about getting our home “show ready” that included a stager and repairs.  He explained how this would help our home sell faster and for top market value.  We followed his advice and completed the checklist he gave us.

We were so pleased we chose Alan and listened to his professional advice.

What stood out to us was not only Alan’s Strategic Selling Plan but that his network identified a potential buyer before our house ever went on the market.  Amazingly when that contract fell through on Thursday Alan didn’t sit back and wait he had another contract in hand by Saturday morning.

I have to say with my background I knew what to expect but it was my wife’s 1st time to sell.   Alan knew how to make us comfortable individually yet as a couple.

His experience and market knowledge are outstanding.

We give Alan 5 stars plus and would strongly recommend him when it comes time to buy or sell your home.
