“I’m very glad I chose Jeb Smith as my realtor to sell my townhouse. It took little more than a month for it to be sold. I relied on his services very much because I live about 250 miles away from the site, which made me highly dependent on his efforts. Not once did I have to travel to the house for anything. >From the outset, I was very confident the house would get a lot of attention, because his presentation was very impressive and professional. He’s more than willing to do the work to get it done, and I mean all of the work. Example: He worked with my former tenant for what was necessary to be done, and he made all of the arrangements for potential buyers. Once the house was sold, he took care of all the issues and repairs that were needed after the inspection report. I strongly recommend Jeb Smith to anyone who needs to sell their house” – Tom D. – 03/06/2019
“Jeb helped us start to finish on the purchase of a new home and the sale of our old home. Both closed on time with fantastic results and assistance from Jeb every step of the way. He is genuine, conscientious, and ultimately very effective. I would recommend Jeb to anyone who seeks to purchase or sell a home.” – Ty K. – 12/15/2018
“The Southern California housing market can be very tricky, even for the most astute business person. When the time came to sell our property, we looked for a realtor that was not only professional and knowledgeable, but was also willing to aggressively protect and represent our interests as sellers. We searched for quite some time but weren’t able to find the perfect fit. At that point, a colleague of mine suggested we reach out to Jeb Smith. I’m glad we did! He handled the whole process from A-Z. All I’s were dotted and T’s were crossed. The transaction was the smoothest real estate transaction we have ever been part of. We all know every real estate transaction has its own unique challenges. Jeb was able to evolve his approach based on each problem and get escrow closed on time. P.S. He is also the guy you want on our side as a buyer. ” – Josh C – 09/13/2018
“from the first time Jeb and I spoke as him being my agent I felt as my best interest was at heart from Jeb. As Soon as I located a property that I was interested in Jeb went to work for me and my family and once the process started I was in constant contact throughout the whole process. And it was perfect less than 30 day escrow and we closed I would recommend Jeb Smith to anyone if you want a smooth transition to a home purchase Jeb is your man” – Stacy Downey – 02/13/2018
“I am so happy that I’ve found Jeb to sell my land. He is an impressive agent. He sold my land that I thought couldn’t sell. I hired another agent to sell this land and it wasn’t even close to the level of service Jeb provided. It was night and day He was very knowledgeable of the area. I am out of the country and he was very helpful with his local knowledge. He is prompt in replying to you and his responsiveness is excellent. Jeb has excellent negotiating skills and he is a highly motivated individual. He got me a deal that was higher than what I’ve hope for. He is honest and not pushy, couldn’t be any happier and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Will definitely use you again in the future if I were to buy/sell in the area” – Scott Ly – 02/13/2018
I can’t say enough about our experience with Jeb Smith. Jeb was professional and personable from day one. He is dependable and kept us informed of every step of the process, respectfully approaching us with every option possible when decisions were needing to be made. He had complete respect and compassion about our situation selling our family home, going above and beyond for us many times. Our family highly recommends him – Kelly Dunbar – 12/06/2017
We have worked with Jeb for many years. Our entire family appreciate his loyalty , honesty and hard work any time we have needed to buy, sell or rent real estate. I would recommend and have recommended Jeb to anyone who wants a realtor that is Honest, sincere and gets the job done. 5 Stars from the Panosyan’s and Guldjian’s! Thanks for always caring Jeb. – The Panosyan’s – 11/30/2017
We met Jeb a few years ago before we were really ready to buy and knew he’d be a great choice when we were serious about buying a home. He walked us through the entire process and painted a clear picture on what we could expect in the area we wanted to purchase a home. He was a great negotiator and had his expert methods to get us into a home we wanted at a price we were happy with, even in this tough market. With his help, we were able to get into our home much faster than we thought possible. We highly recommend him! – Joshua & Victoria Parra – 09/06/2017
Jeb was a pleasure to work with. Very patient and knowledgeable throughout our extended search and after our purchase. He went above and beyond helping us post-sale with a Home Warranty issue which he was able to represent on our behalf. We will definitely recommend him to anyone searching for a home in Orange County or Long Beach area. – Peter & Yehchee Chalmers
Purchasing a home out of state seemed daunting. I found Jeb by looking at his wonderful web sight that showed floor plans in the community that I was interested in. He was by my side all the way. Always prompt in answering any question I had. Most of the time he anticipated the questions. My Grand daughter lives in the neighborhood that I wanted to live in and he fit her schedule into his so they could look at some available properties. After visiting just two places she said she liked Jeb and trusted his opinion to find me just the right fit even if she wasn’t available. He found the place and walked me through all aspects of the purchase. Afterward he followed me along, even helping me hook up the gas and electricity etc. Thanks so much Jeb – Joan Thorn – 12/07/2016
Jeb was amazing throughout the process of preparing for the sale of my condo until the day we closed escrow. He knew my needs, did his best to facilitate meeting those needs as I relocated out of state, and he answered all of my questions along the way. Jeb helped me sell my home quickly for a very fair price. I appreciate the support and guidance he gave me until the very end. – Debbie Wiggins – 10/09/16
Jeb is absolutely amazing! He immediately jumped into this house hunting process with us and was so easy to work with. He was candid with us, figured out very quickly what we were looking for, clearly had a lot of experience with the various neighborhoods we looked in, and was happy to answer any and all questions we had (which were plenty- especially with us being first time home buyers!). He loved hearing our feedback on a house and used that to get a better understanding of us and what we wanted to find. His attention to detail was also great (noticed quirks about a house, if things would need to be replaced, could tell what was an add on, or could tell if something was recently worked on…). And if there was something he didn’t know or we wanted more information about, he knew who to follow up with or had great contacts to get an answer for us quickly. He’s been working with an inspector for quite some time, so that’s who we trusted and used for our home inspection. That proved to be another great choice- he was thorough, answered our questions, noticed everything, and provided us with a very professional printout of everything we discussed (including pictures) immediately after the inspection. One result of that was a chimney issue. Jeb had he previously used and took care of contacting, setting up an appointment (for the next day!), and was available to be there for the inspection so we didn’t have to be. Bottom line- Jeb was the best we could’ve asked for. He was always responsive, pleasant to be around, helpful, and full of knowledge. He’s also so thoughtful and brought us pizza for lunch on our moving day! Even though we know he had other clients, he always had time for us and we truly felt like the priority.
“Working with Jeb was great! He was very knowledgeable of all the neighborhoods that we wanted to look in (mostly western Orange County). He quickly got a good idea of our needs and helped us find a great house that fit those needs. He also helped us to stay focused on the importance of the location/neighborhood over cosmetic things like paint and floors which can be changed. I hope we don’t have to move again for a long time, but if we do I’d definitely work with Jeb again!”
Britney & Ryan Hill – 10/25/16
Jeb was referred to me through a mutual friend and from our initial talks through the closing date, Jeb was extremely professional, informative and responsive. He was always there to take calls, answer questions and provide support when I needed it. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. – Justin Flagg – 09/14/2016
Jeb Smith is a very good real estate agent. He is very professional, honest and will do anything include go out of his way to help you. He handled the sale of my old house and the purchase of my new home and was very professional through the process. I would highly refer him to anyone. – Debbie Bogucci – 09/14/2016
My wife and I were referred to Jeb by close friends of ours. We had met with several other agents, but after or first meeting with Jeb, we knew there was no one else we wanted to work with. He was by far the most professional and well prepared agent we met with. After working with Jeb to sell our condo and then purchase our new home, we know we made the right choice. His knowledge of the local markets made it possible for us to sell our home quickly and then purchase a great new home in a wonderful neighborhood. Through every step of the process, Jeb’s professionalism and expertise made us feel comfortable and confident. He was prompt and courteous and a pleasure to work with. We really can’t say enough good things about our experience with Jeb and absolutely recommend him for your real estate needs! – The McInnis Family – 09/13/2016
Jeb helped me buy and sell my house. He is extremely professional, prompt, courteous, and available! He was very efficient and one of the most honest people I’ve worked with. If I ever move again I will definitely use him. Jamie Elston – 08/30/2016
Jeb went above and beyond to make the home buying process much easier. He answered all of my questions and concerns, and if he couldn’t, he found an answer immediately. He was available pretty much 24/7 and even helped us unpack boxes (in his loafers). If you’re looking for a hard-nosed and very personable realtor, Jeb will get you want you want! Thank you so much buddy! David Hoffer – 08/04/2016
Very professional. When something needed to get done, Jeb began the process right away and go it done. Highly recommended, A+, great experience. He found multiple properties for us and showed us many in person. We ended up finding our perfect little starter condo in the perfect location. Thank you so much for everything Jeb! Lucas Main – 08/01/2016
When it came time to sell my home of 38 years, I was at a loss as to how to proceed. Fortunately, a friend referred Jeb Smith to me. Having never sold a home before, this referral was worth its weight in gold! Jeb was patient, knowledgeable about the market in my area, and made the entire process far easier….and more profitable than I ever imagined. Should anyone be in need of real estate or property management services, it would be without reservation that I would refer Jeb Smith…..a true Real Estate Professional! Nancy McFaul – 04/15/2016
We certainly hit the jackpot with Jeb. We were relocating from the East Coast so I was doing a lot of online research. I had found Jeb’s website which I was using to learn more about the different communities in Huntington Beach. That is when Jeb contacted us. After just a 5 minute conversation we knew we wanted Jeb to be our realtor. His professionalism, no pressure style, market knowledge and communication skills were top notch! When it was time to start looking we had less than one week to find a house and he made sure to maximize our time. He listened to what we wanted and thanks to his “out of the box” thinking, found us exactly what we were looking for. Jeb went above and beyond to find us the perfect house that had not even been listed. We could not be happier with the entire experience. Jeb was always quick to respond when contacted, including after hours and on the weekends. Throughout the entire home buying process we always felt at ease with Jeb. There was never any pressure to make a decision. We felt like we were working with a friend, not just a realtor. Cannot recommend him highly enough!! Peter & Cindy Bresnee – 02/22/2016
Jeb went above and beyond our expectations. He quickly responded to all our questions during the process. We are completely satisfied and now have qualified tenants in our condo. Thank you!!! The Ramirez Family – 01/14/2016
Jeb was very helpful in our search for the perfect home for our family. He was patience and understanding of all our needs. Definitely recommended for any real estate needs! Scott & Ivana – 12/22/2015
I found Jeb to be an absolute pleasure to work with. He was incredibly responsive, quick to reply when the call went to voice mail, and seemed to be able to preempt any questions I had. Being from overseas he took the time to explain and guide me through the rental process making it a whole lot better (and easier) than I was expecting. Scott Anderson – 12/15/2015
My experience with Jeb has been most valuable. When I’ve had tenant/landlord questions via emails or verbally, he has been very prompt with excellent advice and knowledge. Characteristics I look for in an agent/broker are trustworthiness, honesty, helpfulness, responsiveness, and knowledge in their field. These are high standards and I believe Jeb Smith sustains these characteristics. I’m grateful I have him as my broker/ agent and I feel he’s a real asset to the real estate industry. Jannet Juarez – 12/09/2015
Jeb was referred to me by a family member and Im very glad he did. Jeb was very helpful in the home buying process from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Jeb to my family, friends or any one who is looking to buy or sell a house. Jacob Castell – 10/31/2015
Jeb was awesome! He was very knowledgeable of the market and very patient with us. We probably saw close to 40 properties before we finally found our home. He was always quick to get back to us with any questions we had and he touched base with us on a daily basis. He also made it very easy to contact him with multiple ways of communication. He was available through phone calls, text messages, emails, and even social media. I felt that Jeb was truly looking out for our best interest. There were properties that we seen that he actually suggested we’re not right for our family. I appreciated that, because I could tell that he truly cared about his clients and not just a paycheck. I highly recommend Jeb Smith. Amy & Jared Ostermann – 07/07/2015
My 1st experience in buying a home was a huge success. This success could not have happened without Jeb. He was there for me every step of the way. Whether it was sending me links online, seeking out homes in person, or setting up property visits, Jeb was there to walk me through the steps. His knowledge of the area and market made the difference in finding the desired property. I highly recommend Jeb to anyone who is looking to buy/sell a property as he will go the extra mile for you throughout the process. Jordan Marquette – 06/18/2015
Jeb Smith is the man to go to if you want to buy or sell a home! He helped me buy my condo and was very supportive and professional throughout the entire process. As a first-time buyer, I was inexperienced and lacking knowledge of the nuts and bolts of the home-buying process, but Jeb was very efficient in communicating the steps to me and easing my worries along the way. He also referred me to Josh Lewis, another professional who’s a mortgage consultant. Simultaneously working with both of these experts made the process smooth. Not only are they trustworthy, but also honest and real about the facts. I appreciated their patience with me and positive working attitude. I’m turning to Jeb the next time I buy or sell a home! 🙂 Shana Koh – 06/15/2015
My husband and I just bought our retirement dream home in Huntington Beach thanks to Jeb. He knew exactly what we were looking for and In just a couple days he got them to accept our offer and at a great price. I believe it’s because he is honest, he listened, and of course he is easy on the eyes. He knows the area, stayed in touch the whole process. Any questions we had he got us an answer right away. I honestly can’t imagine using any other real estate agent.- Bob & Meleney Schiavone – 06/08/2015
Words cannot describe how lucky and thankful we were to work with Jeb Smith . I would highly recommend him to everyone. We are first time buyers and were guided the whole way through this process with such care and professionalism. I agree with everyone else who has given Jeb Smith five stars. He gives 100%. He is all about integrity and excellence. Extremely detailed and patient and on top of all this, I really can’t imagine getting any better service than this. – Randy & Jennifer Bowers – 05/26/2015
Jeb Smith was a pleasure to work with in purchasing our first home. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept the process really smooth. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner and checked in with us multiple times throughout the closing process. Jeb did an outstanding job of explaining the home-buying process to us and made us both feel calm, cool, and collected about what could have otherwise been a very confusing and stressful closing process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in the Orange County, California area. We were very happy with his services. When we are ready to purchase our second home, we have every intention to ask Jeb to be our realtor again. Thanks, Jeb! 🙂 Aja & Jonathan Watson – 05/22/2015
Jeb has been a great help for us while looking for and buying our condo! He always was responsive to all our questions and was on top of showing us all the properties we were considering in our search. Monica Ritter – 05/19/2015
Jeb is on top of it. He’s prompt and responsive. When I asked him to contact the seller for information about the house. He was able to give me the answers. Our purchase has some difficulties due to the vacate of the current tenant, Jeb was able to help us communicate with the tenant and we work out a plan to have the house empty. Thus, I could get my bank approval for a loan. I texted him early in the morning 7-8am and late at night 8-9pm. He always give me a prompt answer. I could rely on him to solve lots of unexpected problems. He’s also able to comprise my busy schedule, which is a plus. Also, he has solid understanding of the local real estate market. When I asked him about the rent of the property, he said $1,300-&1,400, which was then turned out to be within the range that the appraiser gave me. Highly recommend him. Kim Ngo – 04/02/2015
Jeb, was very good. He was honest and on time. Which is very important to me for someone’s character. I would recommend him to a friend, will use him in the future when we want to buy a home. Brian Russell – 12/21/2014
I couldn’t be happier with the level of service that Jeb Smith and Coastal Realty Group provided to me with the sale of my home in Villa Warner. He priced my home above a recent appraisal that I had completed as he said the comps would support it and not only did they support the value, he was able to get me an offer with in the first few weeks. Jeb was very knowledgeable and helped guide me through the process as a first time seller. He was also very easy to get a hold of when I had questions. I would highly recommend Jeb Smith to anyone looking to Sell their home. Terry Anderson – 10/31/2014
Jeb Smith was a pleasure to work with. Worked very hard before and after our purchase to make sure that everything was just right with our new home. He helped us find professionals in the local area to assist us with doing some home improvements after we closed escrow. Gary Shimmin – 10/31/2014
Jeb was very professional and even though we pulled offers a couple of times that would have been accepted, he never lost his patience nor pushed us to make a purchase that we ultimately would not have been happy with in the long run. Our search process took about six months and Jeb was with us from beginning to end. If you have any questions and he does not have an immediate response he will always be sure to follow up. Highly recommend his services. Daniel Miles – 08/28/2014
Our home buying experience with Jeb as our realtor could not have been better. We would highly recommend him to anyone because of his responsiveness, willingness and ability to accommodate our busy work schedule with evening and weekend viewings, and his extensive market knowledge. As first-time home buyers, we appreciated that Jeb happily walked us step by step through the offer process and ensured that we were always making informed decisions that we felt comfortable with. His research and advice on offer pricing was spot-on, and his negotiation skills ensured that we were taken care of. Even in this difficult market, his expertise made the process seemingly simple. We can’t thank Jeb enough for helping us find our first home. Travis & Kara Flynn- 07/17/2014
Jeb was a pleasured to work with. He was always prompt and attentive to our needs in selling our home. After it was listed, Jeb kept us informed on all the activity on the home and living outside of the US this was very helpful to us. Once an offer was made and we accepted Jeb was very helpful with guiding us through the escrow process. We are very pleased with the his work and his service and would recommend Jeb to anyone interested in selling or buying a home. Eric & Erika Young- 06/24/2014
Jeb Smith is a great agent that just helped us close on a SFR in Orange County. I actually met Jeb when he represented a seller on an investment property I purchased and was so impressed with his work, that I have hired him twice for my own transactions since that time. He did it again with the most recent transaction. I highly recommend him. C. Guldjian – 06/23/2014
Jeb sold our property really fast, he was really professional and attentive. if you are looking for an agent that will take care of you? Jeb is the Agent!! he guided us on every detail and questions. when the time comes for us to buy we again without a question we will call Jeb with Coastal Realty Group. THANK YOU Jeb again for everything! You Rock!! Arturo Pedroza – 05/07/2014
Jeb is a Real State Professional that is very courteous, and knowledgeable about the business. He provided helpful feedback on our situation, which we appreciated. We count on him when is the time to purchase our next house. – Anthony Lopes – 04/21/2014
Jeb is the completed package, he knows his business very well, very professional, always on time for the showing, quick response, overall I am very satisfied, I highly recommend Him. Irene Garcia – 02/26/2014
Jeb Smith is a true professional! He is very easy to communicate with, and isn’t afraid to take on a challenge. My wife and I recently found a wonderful home to relocate our family to and, thanks to Jeb, we couldn’t be happier in our new place. He made himself available at anytime of the day, or sometimes nights, to show us properties and ensure we had the very best fit for our family. At first we were looking to buy, but couldn’t find anything to line up with $$’s and location, so Jeb, even though he would be losing his commission, selflessly talked us into waiting and renting for another year, or so, to see what was available next in the future. That type of honesty and trustworthiness is not common in people, let alone a realtor, and we have not been happier to recommend him to anyone!
The Lane’s – 01/27/2014
Fierce negotiator, I 100% recommend Mr. Smith. He made things easy and always gave weekly updates something I’ve come to see a lot of agents lack. I always knew what was going on with my property while it was in escrow. Valentine Ike – 01/04/2014
I was very impressed with the knowledge of Mr. Smith about the property. Mr. Smith was always on time for every appointment we had, and he answered every question we had about the property and the community. I will highly recommend Mr. Smith to anyone. Randy Bowers – 01/03/2014
Jeb was referred to me by a friend, and he really did an great job short selling my property in big bear lake, Jeb walked me through the process, timeline and expectations, listed the property and was able to manage between the buyers and the bank while keeping me informed the whole time, when the bank rejected the first offer, Jeb and team explained to me what happened and quickly found another buyer and readjusted our offer to the bank which was accepted. Jeb was always thorough, responsive, communicated often, and always delivered on what he said. I highly recommend Jeb Eiad Abunimeh – 11/21/2013
Jeb Smith is a superior agent who is efficient, honest, and knowledgeable. As a first-time homebuyer with minimal understanding of real estate transactions, Jeb was patient with me and explained each step along the way to owning my first home.
Prior to working with Jeb I worked with other agents, and there is no comparison. Jeb is highly competent and professional. Unlike my previous agents, he answered my questions promptly and was reliable and consistent as well. Furthermore, he kept my real estate transaction alive and moving forward despite the inherent challenges of the escrow process and the inconsistencies of others.
Because of Jeb’s expertise, I am now living in my dream home. I unequivocally recommend him and Coastal Realty Group. Michelle Barker – 11/06/2013
From first meeting, Jeb Smith was professional, confident, knowledgeable, and articulate. He was always available to answer any questions, to research market values, and assist with anything and everything needed to close the deal! From start to finish, Jeb was excellent, as well as, personable and intelligent. We will not hesitate to refer him to friends and family ! He is top-notch. Felix & Frances Paz – 11/06/2013
Working with Jeb was an amazing experience from beginning to end. His knowledge, preparation, and professionalism were extremely impressive. He was excellent in the marketing of our property. Jeb took the time and invested the money to showcase our home and because of that we were able to get our full asking price after just 1 day on the market.
Jeb helped us with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. His approach and experience on the selling side was equally matched on the buying side. Most importantly, Jeb’s market knowledge and negotiation skills on both sides of the transactions helped us achieve our end goal and we couldn’t be happier. Lance and Kristi Whitewolf – 10/11/2013
Jeb Smith did a great job helping me find a place to live. He made the whole experience very easy. He was always available to answer any questions I had and he was never hard to get a hold of. I would definitely recommend Jeb to my friends and family. Matthew Fournier – 07/31/2013
Jeb from the start was detailed oriented, organized, and professional! I was interested in selling my condo and he knew exactly what to do, how to accomplish it, and he did. He is very knowledgeable and knew exactly how much to list my property for. We went ahead and listed it, he held 2 great open houses, and it sold within a few weeks!! I was very impressed that he got the job done so quickly! He is a “go getter”! He will negotiate for you with your best interest at heart. He is very honest and reliable. We had absolutely no hassles and everything went smoothly! I never thought this process could be so easy but Jeb makes it easy for you.
If you are looking for an honest agent who is knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and smart then Jeb Smith is your agent. Give him a try…you won’t be disappointed. I am a very happy and impressed client. I will not think twice about seeking out his services again in the future. – Jackie Nguyen – 07/31/2013
Jeb Smith helped me with the purchase of my 1st home. The whole process was very easy and went smoothly all because Jeb was always on top of things and was always available at anytime to answer questions and to get things done. I would highly recommend Jeb. .He is prompt and knowledgeable – every bit of 5 stars – The Riaz’s – 05/30/2013
As a prospective first-time owner, we were nervous about ending up with an agent that was more concerned about closing a transaction than helping us find the dream home. We are thrilled that we found Jeb, who only had our best interests in mind (not “salesy” at all) and did a terrific job throughout our home-buying process. Jeb is extremely professional, responsive to (our endless) inquiries, adept at negotiating, and went far beyond the traditional agent duties, helping us with various items even after the sale closed.
We will highly recommend Jeb to family & friends looking to buy or sell a home.
The Ayer’s – 05/21/2013
Jeb Smith is an agent that is very knowledgeable about every facet of the home buying process. Whether you are a first-time buyer or experienced home owner you will appreciate the thorough approach he takes. He is responsive to your needs, will show you as many listings as you desire, and will follow-up with your requests/questions in a timely fashion. He is a true professional that believes in empowering his clients by providing insight, information, and experience. It was a pleasure working with Jeb and there is no doubt that we will look to him for our future real estate needs. -The Newton’s – 02/11/2013
Jeb Smith is one of the most professional realtors we had the pleasure in working with. He was very prompt to answer all our questions & requests. He was specially helpful , as well as caring to our feelings & needs in a very complicated & difficult selling & moving process of our home. My family has worked with him in several different property sales & purchases which has always had great & immediate results. We will continue to work with Jeb for all Our real estate needs & will continue to refer him to our extended family & friends. – The Panosyan’s – 02/04/2013
Jeb and his team did an amazing job. It was an extremely challenging assignment on a short sale. The property was unique as an un-permitted duplex in an area with huge variations in values. Jeb worked with the banks to get the proper value that would ensure the property would be sold, which was no easy task considering the range of values the appraisers came back with. We avoided several foreclosure dates thanks to the great negotiating and strategies Jeb was able to provided. Ultimately Jeb was able to find a buyer who closed quickly with no out of pocket costs to me. The first and the second mortgage both signed off and I was even able to get some money to assist with relocation. I would highly recommend Jeb to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional and responsive Realtor who will look out for your best interest. Bryan Fournier – 08/30/2012
Jeb did a fantastic job helping us purchase a short sale. Always answered calls, emails, and closed a short sale under 45 days in a professional manner. Would recommend Jeb for all real estate transactions. Thank you Jeb!!! – Harry Guldjian – 06/05/2012
My Wife and I were first introduced to Jeb through this website in January 2012, when I inquired about a particular property that had been relisted for sale. He suggested that we meet at the property that night and would show us around. At the property he was able to gauge what types of homes we were interested and what might best suit our family. Within a few days Jeb was able to present properties for us and meet us at our convenience, not his. By the end of the second week, we made an offer on a home and he was there to coach us with the offer amount, giving his unbiased but educated opinion. There were items and concessions that I wanted in the processes and he was able to explain to me the best route to take on these.
The property we purchased was a short sale, and it turned out to be quite a challenging experience for Jeb and my family. We had issues with the sellers not having their paperwork done correctly, issues with the short sale lender not being flexible on a close date and worst of all, issue with my lender in more areas than I wish to discuss.
In this process, with escrow rapidly approaching, I was completely frustated with my lender and their ability to deliver on promises made. Jeb was there and saw that I was frustrated. He took the initiative and contacted the lender getting hourly updates to try to save a purchase that was quickly slipping away. On the very last day when the offer was set to expire, our lender finally got our paperwork to escrow… however it was too late to fund and record in time to meet the short sale bank’s requirement, causing the deal to expire.
Jeb advised us to go ahead and sign all the escrow documents in hopes the bank would reconsider and accept funding a day late. After a stressful weekend, Jeb called us Monday morning saying that the bank will allow our purchase and to go ahead and fund our downpayment. At that point, I had a sense of relief, or so I thought! The following morning, when my lender finally funded the loan we were still missing an item… the transfer tax, which Jeb was able to resolve.
I can honestly say without any hesitation that my family hit the jackpot with Jeb Smith. I would recommend him to anybody interested in purchasing a home. He will represent you in the best possible way and is incredibly responsive to all questions, regardless how dumb they may seem. Had I known that Jeb also had his own mortgage company prior to my pre-appoval, I can guarantee you that I would have gone with hims as well.

Working with Shawna was a pleasure. She was professional, informed, flexible and available. She really took the time to listen and provide us with honest and thoughtful feedback. most of all she treated us like individuals not just a referral to be managed. -03/26/2012
It was truly a pleasure to work with Jeb & Coastal Realty to find and purchase my home. Jeb’s professionalism, attentiveness and knowledge of the market make him the ideal realtor to work with. Jeb worked hard to schedule all of the showings that I requested in a timely manner that met my schedule. Jeb catered his service to my needs & “must have” visions for my dream home. He provided good advice without ever being pushy. I would highly recommend Jeb & Coastal Realty to any friends & family currently in the market to buy. – Erica Lundblad – 03/15/2012

Coastal Realty Group made the process of selling a house for the first time simple and stress- free. Our questions and concerns were addressed promptly and knowledgeably. We were purchasing a house simultaneously and needed to abide by certain, very precise time frames. This initially had made us very nervous, but our agent made sure that both transactions ran smoothly and closed on time. We were very pleased with our experience and would not hesitate to use them again. – Teresa Machado – 09/19/2011
Jeb did a super job of closing my difficult sale. He was always on top of everything and kept me well informed. I specially appreciated his quick responses. I have referred him to others and would continue to do so.

the agent Robert and Jeb were responsive , clear , organize , a good help for a first time buyer that know very little about the area – Toufic Assoum – 09/15/2011
I worked with Jeb on the Short Sale of my home. He was very knowledgeable in the process and handled all the paperwork and phone calls for me. It resulted in a normally stressful situation to be as stress free as it could be. I recommend Jeb Smith and his office for your Real Estate needs. – Neil Powers – 09/15/2011
I couldn’t be happier with the effort that Jeb put forth in representing us. His professionalism was far beyond what I’ve dealt with in the past. Jeb was a breath of fresh air in a market where comissions are dificult to find and agents can seem overly aggressive. He was truly concerned that we receive the outcome that best favored us regardless of how it affected him personally. It was nice to see someone who truly put their own interest behind those of their client. We ended up keeping our home but intend to have Jeb handle all our future real estate needs. Hope this helps anyone looking for an honest and hardworking guy. – Gabe Baltodano – 09/12/2011
We worked with Jeb and Robert on the purchase of our first home, and my wife and I were very pleased with the results. The search process was lengthy as we were rather picky and looking at the top of our price range, but they continued to offer an exceptional level of assistance through it all.
In the end, Robert was a key factor in helping us secure a great house for our young family and they guided us through the financing process with only minor bumps and bruises. 😉
I also recommended that my mom use Robert and Jeb just recently, and they did an even more impressive job selling her home and getting a good deal on her new one. – James Worth – 09/07/2011
Very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Jeb Smith to anybody looking to buy or sell.

Shawna is very helpful, really knows her stuff and I had a great experience with her as my agent. I would highly recommend her to anyone. – Penny Toth – 01/12/2011
After going through a number of Realtors, I was finally able to find a Realtor that worked for me and not just themselves. After doing my own market research and knowing my price range, and seeing where the market pricing was going, I knew what I wanted and how much I wanted to pay for it. This Realtor, Shawna Ramirez helped me make this happen. Her experience and due dilgence and follow up were exceptional. There was no such offer that she said was unreasonable, she is realistic, pro-active, and believes in not only helping you find a home, but the home you can realistically afford and want to live in. She spent a lot of time and hours dedicated to my search. I highly recommend her. Have recommended her, and have heard nothing but praise from people I have recommended to her!
