Shawn, working with you proved to be one of our best decisions in the entire relocation process. Your knowledge & experience along with your passion for getting our house sold exceeded all of our expectations. You represented our home to buyers much like we would have wanted but with more professionalism & articulation. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for everything. You and your team are simply awesome. Steve and Theresa Benedict (summer 2013)
Working with Shawn to sell our home was the best choice we could have made. She was always available, had great ideas, followed up on every showing with advice & led us through every step of the process with ease; she is a dedicated, determined & diligent agent. We couldn't be happier witah her service & were able to sell our home & purchase our dream home in less time than we expected. Dr. Dan Madion and his wife Kara, sellers & buyers from Traverse City (June, 2010)
Shawn, I've ben watching your growth in our business & you are clearly becoming a player. It's great to see the next generation of Schmidts continue to grace the real estate industry. Keep focused, work hard, and always keep the clients' best interest ahead of your own. Mike Street, long time and well respected Traverse area real estate broker (summer 2010)
My trick was finally retaining a realtor who understands that market, price points, & the internet. Shawn Smith of Coldwell Banker Schmidt is a cut above the rest.. she had 6 or 7 closings in the past few weeks. She told us we could sell our home at our asking price if we wished to wait 14 months, and had empirical data to back it up. If we wished to sell by year end she told us what to ask. We sold in 3 weeks at 95% of that number to a couple from California who never stepped in the house. The internet is where it happens these days. She is a difference maker, knowledgable and professional. Obviously, I highly recommend her. Steve and Joan, Sellers from the peninsula in Traverse City. (December, 2009)
Many thanks to Shawn for her hard work and knowledge in helping us sell our home. Her research of comparable houses and the current market lead us to a price that was spot on. Within two weeks we had not only one but two competing offers which allowed us to get our full asking price. Shawn also made closing quick and convenient allowing us to go on vacation with the monies in the bank and no worries. Not all realtors are nearly as good as Shawn and I would highly recommend her for either a sale or a purchase. Her professionalism and smile are the best!!! Thanks again. Kevin and Cheryl Steen, Sellers from Traverse City (Spring 2012)
I spent a year and a half, unsuccessfully trying to find a home with the services of two different brokers. I always felt more like a burden than a client because of my modest budget. I met Shawn by chance at an open house, and briefly explained my frustrations to her. And while the house wasn't a fit in my search for a home, Shawn definitely was! I am thrilled to have met her and could not be happier with the help and attention that she wholeheartedly provides. Shannon (Buyer), from Traverse City (summer, 2009)
Our experience selling our home with Shawn was fantastic. In this time of uncertainly in the real estate world, we found Shawn to be knowledgable in answering all of our questions, as well as creative, professional and diligent in putting an otherwise difficult deal together. Sarah & Andrew Shotwell (Sellers), February, 2009.
Shawn Smith makes buying or selling a home in the Grand Traverse region simple.

Andrew & Kate (Sellers) from downtown Traverse City, January 2009.
