Philip R. Smith

My experience with Philip was nothing short of exceptional. Not only is Philip extremely knowledgeable about real estate in Orange County, and, in particular, Laguna Beach, but he also uses this knowledge to leverage it to the advantage of his clients. Furthermore, he is conscientious, caring, patient, diligent, and extremely helpful in all things. I've worked with numerous agents in the past with either buying or selling other homes, and Philip is one of the best! Since selling my home, Philip and I have maintained contact and I hope to remain in touch with him in the future. In short, I would highly recommend him as an ethical and very cool agent who will see things through with you to the end, with great results. Much thanks to him!

Our experience with Phillip was incredible, from start to finish. Throughout the entire process, he was dedicated to helping us find our perfect first home. He was in constant communication with us, so we always felt on top of things and in the know. Philip has a natural intuition when it comes to real estate, and it really showed throughout our process. We were warned by so many people about how awful escrow can be, but we didn't have that experience at all. Our escrow was easy and seamless, no doubt due to Phillip's hard work and professionalism. We are so grateful to have had this experience and that Phillip was the one to take us through it. We can't believe we are homeowners!! Thank you so much, Phillip!!!!

Philip is a true professional. He was extremely supportive through the entire real estate transaction. He was always very responsive in communication to resolve issues as they arose. This is the type of individual one would hope for as a representative. We look forward to working with him again.

Philip was always very professional in every aspect of the sale of our home. He was also very knowledgeable with the market place and meeting any and all challenges that arose during the entire process of listing, selling and closing.

My wife and I were introduced to Phillip by a mutual connection in Denver, where we were moving from. We could not have asked for a better introduction. Moving across the country, to an area we are not familiar with can be a daunting task. Phillip was patient and took the time to really listen to us and understand the type of home and community our family was looking for. We were in town for 72 hours and Phillip lined up 20 houses for us to look at. We left that trip with an offer in place on our favorite home. Being 1,000 miles away during the escrow period we were 100% dependent on Phillip to be our eyes, ears and to negotiate with the seller on our behalf. During this time Phillip went out of his way to communicate with us, answer all of our questions and generally be there for us no matter what we needed. We had a smooth, easy closing and now our family is moving into our new home, all thanks to Phillip. He became a friend during the process which is perhaps the best outcome possible from a blind referral. I would highly recommend Phillip to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Southern California.

Philip Smith helped us successfully sell AND purchase our homes. He was patient, very flexible, and super quick to respond to our questions, even though as relatively uninformed sellers/ buyers we had a lot to ask. He’s a personable, competent and confident guy and I felt comfortable with him immediately. Philip marketed the home we put a lot of hard work and money into just perfectly. So well that it sold in just a week! The transaction went smoothly and communicated really well each step of the process. He negotiated the Escrow period and even got us a couple of extra weeks in our home to make the transition to our new home seamless. As for the purchase of our dream home, we were prepared for a long search, but unexpectedly came across our new home after viewing just a few others. Philip gave great advice as far as our offer went- he was very knowledgeable about what would make our offer stand out and with tough sellers, he really pushed for our needs/wants. He helped us view the place several times, get it pre-inspected, get our mortgage details in order, put the offer together...all over the Christmas holiday. This was our first home buying experience, and Philip made it as anxiety- free as possible. I can’t recommend him and the rest of his team enough!

Philip helped my wife and our young family buy our first home in Laguna Beach. His calm personality kept things cool during stressful times in the escrow process. He would also call us every morning to check in and see if we had any questions for the day while the inspections, loans, appraisals were happening. I truly felt he had our back the whole time. He loves the real estate business and it shows!
