Get to Know Shirley Smith

I want to be the one to take you on your real estate journey. I believe that buying and selling real estate is a unique part of your life. No two buyers are the same and no two sellers are the same. I can help you navigate the real estate market in San Diego regardless of what your current situation is. As a previous psychotherapist, I understand how the human brain works. I use this to my advantage to better understand my buyers and sellers. Watch my video to learn a bit more about me and my approach to real estate.

Meet Shirley Smith

As a native Californian, I purchased my first property when I was 19 years old. Having a knack for remodeling, I continued to purchase and project manage several renovations in the USA and Australia, where I lived for many years.

My former career as a psychotherapist, executive coach and best-selling author of five books, provided me with solid negotiation skills, as well as the ability to really listen. I know how to ask the right questions to draw out what people truly need and desire in a home or investment property and accentuate the key features to focus on in selling a property for maximum profit.

Kind Words From Happy Clients

Megan L.


“Shirley is such a fabulous realtor! I am beyond blessed that I had her by my side investing in my first home. I have always wanted to live by the beach and Shirley helped make my dreams come true. She made the home buying process extremely easy by always looking out for my best interests. She always answered my calls and texts when I had questions. Shirley is extremely approachable, intelligent, enthusiastic, and so very kind. I highly recommend giving Shirley a call if you are buying a new home or selling.”

Richard & Mary M.


“Shirley is simply amazing! We were first time home buyers and had little information about the whole buying process. She helped us in every way possible and everything went smoothly! Thank you again, Shirley, for the time and effort you spent with us. Most of all, for making our first experience as easy as it was! Meeting you was a blessing indeed!“

Lou & Elinor M.

Sellers & Buyers

"If you want to sell your property and get a good price, call Shirley Smith. She is generous, determined and a good communicator, giving us frequent briefings about developments. You can count on Shirley to deliver!"

Catherine R.


"My husband and I worked with Shirley to purchase a home in Imperial Beach and really can't say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Shirley made it as painless and straight forward as possible. We highly recommend her."

J.C. & Tong


"Shirley did a fantastic job helping us with our first home purchase! She was very responsive and always available to answer any questions and provide much needed guidance. We bought a new construction home from a big builder and Shirley seemed to know exactly how to deal with the seller, negotiate and get what we wanted. From finding comparables, through negotiations of price and upgrades, scheduling closing, dealing with escrow and up to closing, her responses and initiatives were always prompt, thorough and accurate. Her energetic demeanor really inspired confidence, both in our purchase and that we chose the right agent. I hope we're in our new home for a long time, but if we were to move, I couldn't hesitate to work with Shirley again or give her anything but the highest recommendation."
