Welcome to the great world of Real Estate at Smith & Associates Real Estate
Today’s real estate process is complex and requires expertise. We approach our business differently from the typical salesperson who merely pressures clients when buying or selling homes. Kirsten Ravid and Jim McConnell help you make good decisions through education and guidance. Yes – we assist people in buying and selling homes but we see it more as helping people move forward in their lives. We do this by fulfilling the role of being our customer’s “Trusted Advisor” and our purpose is to help our customers make Good Decisions that are best for them.
We offer resources on this web site for both buyers and sellers.
