Testimonials “I had done my research before listing my home of 45 years, and my choice was Joan Smothers and Smothers Realty Group, one of the best decisions I ever made. Your open and honest answers to all my questions, plus our working together to determine listing date and price, resulted in the sale of my home in one day. An added plus was the friendliness you bring to a client.”
