Let me begin by saying that Bridget is as wonderful a person as she is an incredibly skilled agent. We purchased our first home in Traverse City this past fall with Bridget as our buyer’s agent. She did an excellent job shepherding us through the process, not just for showings and placing an offer but also for securing our loan which we had not done before. Her endless patience, calm and kind demeanor set us at ease, even in a crazy housing market. Bridget listened carefully to our needs, sending us listings that were right up our alley. In a few instances, she was able to set us up for showings right when homes hit the market. When it came time to commit, she helped us put together a very strong offer and continued to help save us money throughout the negotiation. Bridget is a great communicator and always followed up with listing agents and other parties in a timely manner. We felt con…

Bridget is a great communicator and always followed up with listing agents and other parties in a timely manner. We felt confident having her act as our voice in these conversations. At times it felt like she knew what we were thinking before we even had to say it! I cannot stress enough how valuable it is to have an agent who understands you, and Bridget is that person. We would not at all hesitate to recommend her to friends, acquaintances, or strangers alike.

Buyer

From the moment I contacted her, Bridget focused on the particulars of my situation and my needs as a buyer. She asked the right questions, not just of me, but of the resource people she knew to get me the information I needed to make my purchase decision. She provided thorough and recent comps so I could make a fair and reasonable offer on the house I selected. And once the purchase process was underway, she kept on top of things, moving the process along and keeping me informed each step of the way. Bridget has a calm demeanor and positive attitude, keeping the stress level low during a stress-inducing situation. This is the 6th time I've been through the home buying process in my life, and without a doubt, Bridget is one of the best Realtors® I've dealt with. She is professional, knowledgeable, and will be a strong advocate for any client. I would engage her to buy the 7th home in a h…

I really can’t say enough great things about Carly! She was professional and very knowledgeable about the area. She also had some really great negotiating strategies. This was a tough market to be a buyer, but Carly got us exactly what we wanted. She was timely with communication during the search and followed up often throughout the process. I really appreciated how much she went above and beyond for us and even though we know we’re not her only clients, she definitely made us feel like we were a priority. She’s truly everything you want in a Realtor® and one of the kindest people we’ve met in this city so far! We will always recommend her to anyone that asks and will definitely be using her if/when we sell in the future.

Buyer

There are Realtors® and then there is Carly, and she is above and beyond the rest. Do you have a question? She’ll answer it. Do you need to gauge the market? She knows it. Do you have any concerns? She’ll solve them. Buying a house can be intimidating, but Carly will walk you through step by step every small detail you need to know while also providing insights on how to negotiate, what is reasonable for the asking price, and what the market trends are. We always got a response and she was always available for a meeting or walkthrough. Truly made the home buying experience so easy and should definitely be the model on how to conduct these types of business proceedings. I wouldn’t use another real estate agent, period.

Shawn Schmidt Smith was a breeze to work within a very short turn-around time. We saw the house on a Saturday; we made an offer on the following Monday, which was accepted on Wednesday; and she lined up an inspection for that same week. And we closed ten days after making the offer. It could not have been easier. There were no unforeseen situations. Shawn is very friendly, a consummate professional, broadly knowledgeable, etc. She has lived in the area for many years. She pointed out good and not-so-good aspects of the houses we viewed and which we probably wouldn't have thought about. I would recommend Shawn to anyone interested in finding or selling a house in Traverse City and the wider region.

Shawn is absolutely The Best In The Business. I have been in Banking for 35 years, I know a large number of Agents. Shawn is the best. I literally just entrusted her to sell my mother's home. Fantastic job, great marketing, we received a great price and it closed smoothly. Shawn had her finger on the pulse of the transaction the entire time. Shawn comes from a very well-respected Real Estate Family with deep roots in Northern Michigan. That's market knowledge, history, and experience that most don't have. A real estate transaction is typically the biggest transaction of our lives. Why not hire the Best?
