“We happily recommend Shirley Smith to our La Jolla Friends and neighbors. We found our dream retirement home in Idaho and didn’t know how we could buy it without selling our La Jolla home first. Our long-time friend, Jim Worley, introduced us to Shirley Smith who took control of the sale of our La Jolla home.
She quickly arranged for minimalist styling, professional photography, and she created our very own property website with an interactive 3-D tour! It was Amazing! Shirley’s expertise in pricing advice and negotiation skills were spot on. The results speak for themselves. The house sold in seven (7) days. Her personal attention, professionalism, and communication of what buyers expect in our price range were keys in getting our home sold so quickly.
Her commitment to quality and timeliness in action really paid off. With the expert marketing of our La Jolla home from Shirley Smith we would whole-heartedly recommend Shirley to our friends, neighbors, family and colleagues.“
“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.”
“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!“
"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!"
"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."
"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."
“It’s has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with Shirley Smith on various Real Estate deals. She is enthusiastic, professional and trustworthy. Her attention to detail and careful planning has been instrumental in making hard decisions in a competitive market. She is always on task, on time and really goes the extra mile to ensure that all needs, wants and desires are aligned. Shirley is a hard worker and her commitment to excellence is top notch. Two things that I find unique about Shirley is that she is particularly skilled at listening and has a knack for negotiations. I trust her. She doesn’t make promises she can’t keep and always over delivers. She truly goes above and beyond!"
“I have been a client of Shirley Smith for over 10 years. She is outstanding at connecting with people, understanding their needs and facilitating communication. Shirley is very results focused and action orientated. She has an impeccable sense of design and has always been known for her astute mind for property and real estate, purchasing and renovating many properties over the years that I have known her. Shirley coached me through the buying of three properties and most recently in purchasing a property in 2015 that had potential to add a bathroom, knock down a wall and create a dining area. This has added over $400,000 to the property value. I have no hesitation in recommending Shirley Smith as a person with high levels of integrity, professionalism, communication and authenticity."

Her outstanding communication skills enable her to connect and understand her client’s needs and goals. Her advice and guidance over the past 20 years has been instrumental in the growth of my law firm."
"I have been a San Diego real estate and mortgage broker since the mid 1980's and I know what it takes for an individual to achieve the desired result in listing and selling real estate. I have had the pleasure of knowing Shirley Smith as a friend and business associate since 1982. Her friendly optimism, keen intelligence, responsible and honest character can always be depended upon. As a former counselor and coach, Shirley has exceptional communication skills that are a requisite for success in transacting in today's real estate business. Other aspects of Shirley's essence are her endless degree of energy and enthusiastic persistence, which are attributes that will lead to favorable outcomes in dealing real estate."
