How Kevin Smith Helped Lorrie by Being Accessible and Considerate

 "We got the house that I wanted and he was really helpful because I live a couple hours away. He would meet people at the house to let them in and make sure it got cleaned as well. Kevin also closed on a house for my dad who is older and was very helpful with him and anything he needed. He is always available by phone or text too!"

Whether you're planning on listing your home or you just want to make improvements in order to better enjoy your home, hiring a trustworthy contractor is crucial. How exactly do you do that?

  • Get references. You’re going to want to get references from other people who have worked with the contractor you’re considering hiring. You can ask for testimonials from the company or you can go online and check out their reviews.
  • Talk to an agent. Agents, like myself, have lists of contractors we’ve worked with in the past that have done a great job.
  • Check with your state’s board. Before making a hire, ensure the contractor is licensed, bonded, and up to standards.
  • Ask for pictures. These will give you an idea of the quality of product they’re using and the quality of their work.
  • Discuss time-frames. Make sure the contractor you’re interested in is capable of completing the project in a timely manner.
  • Ask about payment. You never want to be paying more than a third or fifty percent of the total bill.

If you do the above things, you should have no problem finding a great contractor for your home renovation project. If you have questions about this topic, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to hear from you!

How Kevin Smith Helped Tommy by Being Friendly and Quick

"We told him what we were hoping to get out of our purchase and he came up with a pretty good list. It only took us one day of looking at properties for us to put an offer down on a house. He has a friendly personality and we really got to know him on a personal and friendship-type basis rather than a business-client basis."

How Kevin Smith Helped Peter by Being Professional and Outgoing

"Kevin helped us sell the house for exactly what it was worth. He was very professional and very good about helping us price it. Every time we had a garage sale he would bring over signs and place them around the neighborhood. He did that at least half a dozen times."
