Highly likely to recommend | 5.0 Report a problem 09/07/2021 - kkmjourney Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Loveland, CO. Local knowledge Process expertise Responsiveness Negotiation skills Over the last ten years, I and other members of my family have used Lloyd for the sale and/or purchase of five homes. That alone should show you how highly I value his service. Lloyd is very responsive and is always available when you need him (even at odd hours). He’s assertive in representing his clients. He clearly explains the myriad of documents and deadlines and never misses a beat. This ensures a smooth and pleasant experience. He and Abby are both so easy to work with. Using them for your real estate transactions is the right choice.
Lloyd is a professional that knows the market and will guide you through the steps to be successful buying or selling. Follow his expertise and you will get results. His staff is also friendly and professional. They keep you informed through each step and are usually a step ahead. I have worked with Lloyd buying and selling a home.
Highly recommend Lloyd! This is the second time we have utilized Lloyd in crazy market conditions. Always professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. Nothing missed and always on top of the details for his clients.
I strongly recommend him, he was very kind and professional through all the process, and he always had time to answer some questions that I might have.
What can I say about Lloyd's expertise and professionalism that no one else has said before? Well, in this red-hot real estate market, I was able to sell my condo and buy a new place in just two weeks (from one closing to the other)! Perhaps my case was not typical, but I credit Lloyd with helping me sell my condo quickly and at a great price. He staged the condo, advertised it widely, and we ended up getting a fantastic offer. But the best was yet to come. In this market, selling is the easy part--buying a new place is a different story. Lloyd managed what was a very stressful process with professionalism, empathy, and aplomb. We made an offer, it was accepted, and now we have a new place thanks to Lloyd!
Lloyd is FANTASTIC!! I wish I could give MORE STARS! My family and I just moved to CO from another state which at face value sounds daunting. Lloyd made this process of buying a home painless. He was super responsive, informative, and his market analysis details were incredible. Lloyd put our interests first and fought for us. Oh, and I cannot forget Lloyd's assistant Abby! She was AMAZING! She helped coordinate all the paperwork and answered all our questions!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LLOYD AND HIS TEAM!!
My husband and I have purchased a handful of homes in our lifetimes and Lloyd, by far, has been the best. He was extremely attentive to our wants and needs. He ensured we looked at appropriate homes in the market. Once we find the home(s) that would work for us, Lloyd was a master negotiator.
The thought of buying a house for most is terrifying, I felt the same until I started to work with Lloyd. Before looking at actual properties he suggested that we complete an educational presentation that he created so I could get up to speed with the processes and "lingo" After that my confidence level increased so much that I could probably be a Realtor, haha Just kidding, I will leave that up to the Pro. His knowledge of the market and processes is unmatched and his communication during this process is comforting and next level!
Lloyd Smith made the process of selling my longtime home and finding my new home remarkably smooth. Lloyd was sure that I was never caught off guard by anything. From prior to listing through closing I received clear and precise service. He is responsive, provided quality referrals when needed, anticipated my needs, and goes the distance to see that you are taken care of. Lloyd and his Assistant Abigail are knowledgeable, patient, professional, and pleasant.
Lloyd knows what is needed to make a sale. He predicts the market and executes as promised. We sold and closed our property in Fort Collins, Colorado within a month. AAA+
Lloyd will fight for you. He will recommend the lender with the best rate, he will go above and beyond to insure you find the right home for you, and he will meticulously walk you through every step of the process so you have total peace of mind.
Lloyd goes above and beyond in his quest to help potential home buyers/sellers find their perfect new place/buyer, all while making it as simple and understandable as possible for his clients. He is incredibly thorough and detail oriented. You will never be disappointed, forgotten, misguided or put on the “back burner” by Lloyd J Smith. Highly recommend!!
Lloyd’s presentation of my townhouse for sale was flawless. After two days of being listed we had a contract for our desired price. Lloyd and his team made the process smooth and stress-free. This is one of a few real estate transactions with Lloyd over the past few years and each experience has been consistently professional with excellent results.
Lloyd is professional, thorough, and knows how to get the job done. I worked with him to buy my home and to sell it five years later. He is responsive, effective, listens, and will go the extra mile to help buy or sell. I sold my home in 24 hours for over asking because I followed Lloyd's suggestions. I highly recommend him as a realtor!
My daughter bought a house with Lloyd's help and was able to get a very good deal. Lloyd helped her in so many ways and was the voice of reality and knowledge. She referred Lloyd to us and what a good experience we had. We have bought several properties and Lloyd by far was one of the best realtors we have ever used. He was patient and extremely detailed. We worked together through the negotiation process once we decided on the property. He worked right with us the whole way. Even after the purchase he helped with valuable information. Do yourself a favor and choose Lloyd. You won"t be disappointed.
Lloyd is extremely experienced and does not let one detail slip through the cracks. He and Abby are extremely professional and pleasant to work with.
Lloyd was very helpful in our search for a forever home in Fort Collins. From the resources he offers, his knowledge of the industry, and impeccable response time- he really makes a complicated process simple. We've used 5 realtors and Lloyd Smith was the best, by far!
Lloyd is one of the best agents I have worked with in the home-buying process. He is very responsive, detail-oriented, and ensures you know every step of the process. He is always available to answer questions and works to strategize the best deal for you. I cannot recommend him enough, especially if you are interested in having detailed information along the way. Lloyd and his assistant Abby are very meticulous and ensure the process goes smoothly.
I cannot recommend Lloyd Smith enough. If you had asked me, when my wife and I decided to buy our first house, whether or not I would be nervous I would have told you, absolutely. However, after working with Lloyd for the last few months, when the closing day arrived, I was completely comfortable with the purchase. Lloyd truly provides unparalleled service and transparency each step of the way. I will certainly be using Lloyd in the future.
Lloyd is very knowledgeable and efficient. He was so helpful and truly a pleasure to work with! Any questions that I had were immediately answered. You will not regret choosing Lloyd to help you with your home search.
Just closed on a property with Lloyd last week. Fantastic experience. Lloyd was thorough and accessible through the whole process, returned phone calls promptly and answered all of our questions. He was very patient when explaining the processes involved in our home purchase and in going though what forms were involved at each process, what to expect and what options might be available at each stage. His office staff were all excellent, efficient, polite friendly and helpful. Would heartily recommend Lloyd and his Staff and will work with him again when the situations arise.
This was the eighth home we have bought in five states. We have had several realtors in the past and I can tell you, Lloyd Smith is far and away the best. His personal touch made this a very enjoyable experience. The communication, responsiveness, and integrity we experienced with Lloyd is unmatched. We will use Lloyd for our next home buying experience and I highly recommend him to anybody in need of a realtor.
Lloyd was wonderful, his professional excellence and methodical knowledge was extremely helpful. You’ll have a hard time finding an expert that is so willing to accommodate your schedule and go the extra mile. He worked with us through his own vacation and promptly worked out every issue/concern to help get what we wanted.
I have worked with Lloyd to purchase two homes. He is fantastic. If there was a house I wanted to see he would always find time to meet me. In Fort Collins houses fly off the market so the quick response is a huge advantage. He has always been fair and honest which is important in a realtor. I would highly recommend Lloyd!
After helping us to sell our house (for considerably more than we had planned) earlier this year, Lloyd helped us buy our new house (for considerably less than we had planned). Lloyd and his team (Hi Abby!) are consummate professionals who know the market inside and out, and how to get the deal you want, when you want it. We will be purchasing some commercial property, and his market analysis will ensure we get exactly what we're looking for at the price we want
Lloyd, Sarah and Abby are remarkable! Sarah Brown reached out to me immediately after asking her a question. My husband and I then went into meet her and see a presentation. She was professional and likable! We never felt pressure from her or Lloyd. Their team helped us make the best decision about our buying options. Lloyd is VERY knowledgeable! We always felt valued as their clients and that we were their top priority! Even after closing, they went to bat for us in helping get our front landscape finished. They’ve a client for life and I would recommend their team to anyone! My only regret is that I didn’t get this review out sooner..I was the slacker!
This is my second home I have sold through Lloyd and his attention to detail is top notch. After his stager gave us a list of recommended small touchups and cleanups ideas (which we did everything she suggested) she came in and staged the main floor and it looked amazing! The day before we listed another home exactly like ours, square footage, rooms, you name it, came on the market $2000 under what we were going to list for I was kinda bummed. Lloyd was confident with the work that we put into the house to clean it up and stage it we should stay at our original price we discussed. The house sold in two days for $1000 over asking while the other house was still on the market! PS. I have also purchased 3 homes with Lloyd and he has worked his tail off to get us exactly what we need/wanted. I can't stand push realtors who try extra hard to convince you "this is the house you need" when it's clear I don't like the house. I never experienced that with Lloyd. 10 out of 10 in my book!
Lloyd brings an unbeatable combination of knowledge and skill to his clients. He was our agent when we bought a property 6 years ago, and when it was time to sell there was no question we would use him again. He is totally on top of all aspects at all time, and we got top dollar for our sale. There's a reason he is one of the top agents in all of Colorado!
Pleasure dealing with Lloyd and his team, left me alone until I needed him and he shot into action when I needed him. Lloyd crossed every T and dotted every I. Will use him again when I buy anther property in Fort Collins. Thanks Abby, Sarah and Lloyd for helping me move back to my home state.
Lloyd and his team, Sarah and Abby, were a delight to work with in our purchase of our new home in the Northern Colorado area. From beginning to end they were very informative and quick to respond to any question my wife or I had. They went to bat for us on several occasions when we received push back from our sellers or the mortgage company. Would definitely recommend using their services for any of your purchasing needs.
I highly recommend Lloyd J Smith and his team if you’re looking to buy a new home. I worked with Sarah Brown for the majority of the time with Lloyd and Abby’s help. She was very knowledgeable of the industry, and quick to answer when I had any questions. I actually went into the home buying process thinking we wouldn’t find anything we loved in our price range, and we ended up finding a condo in the first week of working with them. Sarah set up our showing the very next day, and then set up a meeting with the builders, as it was new construction, the following day to go over all the details and to ask them any questions we had. As a first time home buyer, Sarah and Lloyd took off the stress we had in making such a big decision, and we felt confident in the process. Abby, Lloyd’s assistant, was also great as she was constantly reminding us of any upcoming deadlines, and went out of her way to help us with anything we needed. Thankful we got to work with such a great team.
We purchased the house a few months ago using Lloyd as our realtor. We moved from out of state so knew no one, we feel incredibly fortunate to have found him. He was so incredibly prompt and thorough in every aspect of the purchase and closing. He made us feel like we were his only customers. How great is that! You can rest assured that your home sale or purchase is in very capable hands when dealing with Lloyd!
Lloyd helped us buy our house three years ago, and when we were looking to move onward and upward, he helped us sell it. We had an estimate in our head, and Lloyd confirmed it, and then after we spent time improving the property ended up selling the property for considerably over what we were asking for. We had some desires, including a quick closing, that we got as well. We were happy with every aspect of the sales process!
We used Lloyd when we moved to Colorado over 4 years ago. Than again to sell our home when we moved back to Wisconsin. Lloyd is very efficient in his profession. He has a very effective plan to sell or buy your home. We put our home on the market on a Friday and by that Sunday we where signing papers and had multiple offers. I cannot guarantee this will happen to you, but if possible Lloyd will get it done. I would recommend Lloyd to anyone buying or selling their home.
One of the first things he told us when we met him was that he goal was to over-deliver his already high standards. I confess that at first I thought this was an exaggerated boast, but he has consistently hit the mark. we both purchased and sold our home with him as well as two other homes bought and sold by my mother, to whom I recommend his services. He is conscientious, competent and forward leaning. Beyond his effectiveness at his core functions, he is also extremely amiable, thoughtful and serviceable, always willing to go the extra mile and problem solve if and when the unexpected happens. His steady hand had a great calming effect on what can often be a stressful process. I could not recommend him highly enough.
I’ve now bought two houses and sold one with Lloyd as my agent. I can not recommend him enough. His attention to detail and wealth of knowledge was so helpful in making us feel comfortable throughout the process and achieving the best the market had to offer.
This is my third closing with Lloyd over the past few years. Each closing has gone smoothly due to Lloyd's diligence and professional savvy. I intend to work with Lloyd with all future property transactions in Fort Collins area and recommended him to all my friends.
My husband and I decided we wanted to purchase our first home. We both had our doubts on being able to find something that would fit our family and price range. Lloyd immediately put us at ease and did ALL of the work. We told him what we needed and how much we had, and he found the perfect first home for us. The entire experience from start to to finish has been nothing short of excellent.
This sale is the fourth opportunity I have had to be Lloyd's client. My impression of Lloyd is that he is leaps and bounds beyond being just highly professional. He is ethical, responsible, knowledgeable, and a true leader. With each experience, he has done everything to set us up for success and the proof is in the positive outcomes we've had each and every time. It is a privilege to work with Lloyd and I would recommend him and his team to everyone who needs to buy or sell a home.
This review for Lloyd is a bit late in coming from us but it certainly isn't lacking in praise for Lloyd and the team. From our initial meeting and presentation to signing the paperwork at closing Lloyd and his assistant, Abby, were very professional, quick to be on top of everything, and even took some curveballs from my fiancé and I when our hearts got set on a particular home. Would recommend Lloyd to anyone looking to buy a home.
We worked with Lloyd and Mandy for our move to Windsor from Chicago. They know the neighborhoods and market very well and were extremely helpful as we explored the different areas and found our new home. Both were very helpful in negotiating and managing the purchase through the close. We would highly recommend Lloyd Smith and Mandy Smith.
From start to finish, Lloyd did exactly as he promised. He provided exceptional, over-the-top service and sold our home in one day. And, he did so when other homes in our neighborhood remained on the market for weeks. He gets my highest recommendation.
We know Lloyd for over 3 yrs. now and find him to be an honest and responsive individual in real estate market. He is easy to work with and always available. We are so happy that he was instrumental in buying and selling a beautiful home for us here in Fort Collins. Highly recommended.
As the buyer’s agent, Lloyd really thought and acted on our behalf. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional in the business. He responded very quickly for any questions we asked, check and explained the details, reminded us every deadlines, so the closing process went smoothly. We are very happy with the help from Lloyd to our purchase of a wonderful home!
While looking for a condo for my daughter, Lloyd was able to show us the correct number and style of units so that we were able to make an offer in just 2 days. We were able to close on the property in just over3 weeks. Excellent knowledge, service, and dependability on Lloyd’s part made this sale a breeze. Thank you Lloyd. Eric and Maureen Hall
We worked with Mandy Smith and Lloyd Smith during our home purchase process. They were great to work with and gave good advice. Abby Fischer was on top of the process after our offer was accepted. I'd highly recommend them.
We had a 45 day deadline to ID a 1031 exchange property. With professional expertise, Lloyd & his assistants helped us meet this deadline. Yes we can recommend him for Real Estate needs. Chuck & Esther
My husband and I are so pleased with Lloyd and our home buying experience. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the process as easy as possible. We absolutely recommend him for anything you might need!
Lloyd was extremely knowledgeable and helpful during our home search. He got us our first home and it couldn’t have been smoother! We fully recommend Lloyd and plan to use him in the future if we move on to a new place.
Lloyd's integrity and knowledge combine to make him an ideal agent. He and his amazing team are responsive and helpful. They never made me feel I had dumb questions! Lloyd is so well prepared that he sold my townhome in TWO DAYS. You can expect amazing things from Lloyd and his team and they will deliver.
I am a first time home buyer and Mandy, Lloyd and Abby (their amazing assistant) were all absolutely wonderful. They helped make the process smooth and as stress free as possible. Mandy sat us down before we started officially working with her to explain the home buying process and understand what we wanted in our dream home. That meeting really set us up to succeed. Mandy was always an advocate for us and could not thank her enough for how she looked out for our best interest at all times. Mandy helped with working with the builders and was very responsive by phone, text and emails. Abby was incredible, checking in and ensuring we were ahead of our deadlines. If we are ever back in the market for a house and/or selling we will definitely be return customers. Would recommend to absolutely everyone!
I believe Lloyd has an excellent knowledge of all aspects of his business. Those that standout during my sale included home values, staging, and negotiations. One other thing that impressed me was he verified the numbers before closing and found a mistake in my favor. Just proves to me he's doing everything he can for his clients.
Out of 5 stars, Lloyd is an 8 star realtor! He & his team have impeccable attention to detail and have great communication about those details. Lloyd helped us buy a new home. Then, when we were ready, sold the previous one quickly. He is honest, trustworthy and available when you have a question. We will always recommend Lloyd. He's a first class realtor!
Lloyd and Mandy did an outstanding job helping me find and close on my ideal home at a price that was just right. I was very glad to have them represent me and my interests and I'm grateful we worked together.
We bought a house and sold a house with Lloyd. Excellent experience. Life saver while selling a house while being located outside of the country. Thank you Lloyd.
Working with this team over the last month has been a great experience. I appreciate the attention to detail and commitment to prompt and concise communication. The demonstrated professionalism is an example to all in your industry. Thank you!
Lloyd was our agent in purchasing our first home in Colorado and we couldn't have been more pleased. He is very knowledgeable about the area and developments and I especially liked when he gave me background information about a particular builder that we had been considering for a new build purchase, but after speaking with him, we decided against that idea.
We have worked with Lloyd on more than one occasion. His attention to detail and overall knowledge of the market has always helped us get the best deal possible.
Lloyd was very responsive to all inquiries and made himself available at all times. When it came time to purchase, Lloyd, got us a fair price below asking price.
I have worked with a number of real estate agents in the past and Lloyd is by far the best. He is very organized, patient, and extremely ethical in representing his clients. . I truly enjoyed him.
From your first interaction with Lloyd, he gives you a confidence in his experience in this industry, competence with market trends and sincerity to tell you his honest opinion so you can make informed and effective decisions. If you are looking for someone who only tells you the things you want to hear, look elsewhere. If you are or want to be an informed buyer or seller, who expects a high degree of competence and professionalism, Lloyd Smith is your man. He and his assistant were on point and responsive to you needs and timeline. He's not pushy, but is realistic. I can't say enough about how he provided the perfect balance of presence without pressure. Please don't sign a contract with a realtor without giving Lloyd a call. He spent a couple hours of his time at his office with us, showing us how he would help us reach our goals. There was never a pushy sales pitch... and doesn't need to be. His approach and results speak for themselves. Nothing to lose if you don't select him as you realtor, but you are definitely cheating yourself to not at least speak with him about buying or listing your property. If and when the time comes, we will be calling him back. Thanks Lloyd, you rock!
Lloyd was a huge asset in helping my Husband and I find the right home for our family within the price range we had set. Lloyd wanted to make sure every detail was went over, made sure we understood every step of the way of what was expected of us. When we looked at homes, he pointed out the things that were concerning to him as well as what was workable he never left anything to chance. We couldn't of done this without him and his amazing staff! Lloyd and his staff also helped some of our very close friends buy their first home as well, Which is how we came to meet Lloyd. If anyone is looking for the best, it's lloyd! He will take care of you in the process of buying a home or your first home!
We have worked with a number of real estate agents in the past and Lloyd is by far the best. He is very organized, patient, and extremely ethical in representing his clients. He never pressured us to make a quick sale and did everything within his power to help us find the right home.
If you’re even thinking about buying or selling a house there, seek out Lloyd Smith! You will never regret it. Accept no substitutes! On a scale of 1 to 10, he’s a 100. Late in a vacation visit to Fort Collins, my wife and I decided we loved the city so much we might want to move there ought to meet with a realtor. Angie's List led us to choose Lloyd Smith, one of the best choices we've ever made about anything. Even though we met late in the afternoon of our last day, Lloyd spent a great deal of time describing the market and finding out exactly what we wanted and could afford. Confident that we were in capable hands, we returned to Oklahoma and began the arduous process of finding and buying a home "long-distance." At every step of the way, Lloyd was working tirelessly with and for us: providing vital information and advice about houses of interest; doing video walkthroughs and arranging spur-of-the-moment showings; shaping an offer that was so effective it was accepted without negotiation; interacting with the seller's agent; meticulously guiding and advising us through the maze of steps that follow having an offer accepted; arranging pre-approval and mortgage financing; and doing a host of kindnesses and favors far beyond the call of duty. In addition to being careful, smart, computer savvy, thoroughly professional in every way, and highly knowledgeable about real estate, Lloyd is a considerate, honest, patient person who works extremely hard, is unfailingly responsive to questions, adheres to the highest ethical standards, and will always have your back. And he’s a joy to spend time with. We are convinced that had it not been for Lloyd being our realtor, we would not now own a house in Fort Collins, let alone one that is exactly what we wanted in the location we wanted and in the price range we can afford. We’re lucky he was our realtor and has become our friend. Don’t even bother interviewing other realtors; sign with Lloyd. Nobody does it better!
Lloyd's knowledge, integrity, and expertise made the process of selling our home much easier. The marketing of our home was beautiful and professional and definitely helped us to sell quickly and at top dollar.
WOW!!! Is the perfect word! Lloyd was so thoughtful and accommodating. Unless our house could sell its self I don't think we could have had a better experience!
We purchased a home recently through Lloyd, and are preparing a home that will list with him on the selling side. We can't say enough about how pleased we are. The builder was a tough nugget to deal with. Lloyd knew just what to say, when to say it, and how to say it, to get things done and be sure we had a list fulfilled prior to closing. He answers calls immediately, and phones right back if you hit voicemail. Lloyd attends to every detail, catches errors in documentation generated by others, knows local codes and specs, and gets things done, or corrected, quickly. He's "our guy" going forward! Thanks Lloyd!!
This is the third time I have had the pleasure to call Lloyd my agent--buy, sell, buy--and excellence is the word that comes to mind. Lloyd is bright, professional, knowledgeable, and organized. I was especially privileged to work with Lloyd this time around because he had specialized knowledge and connections that made a potentially complicated process flow easily with no complications. If this experience is not enough to describe my positive experience, Lloyd has a top notch team behind him that held my hand throughout the entire process with care and diligence.
New to the state of Colorado, we cannot emphasize enough how impressed we were with the service Lloyd provided. We interviewed three different agents prior to beginning our search. All were excellent in their own right, but the factor that tipped the scale in Lloyd's favor was his expertise in contracts and negotiations. His availability, knowledge of the market, and patience working with us while we narrowed down what we wanted were exceptional and his negotiation skills in this hot market helped us land the perfect home and neighborhood. We would highly, highly recommend Lloyd to anyone.
Lloyd is simply the best. He helped me buy a condo in what is now a tough seller's market in Fort Collins. His experience and knowledge of the market is invaluable when making an offer. It took a few tries for me to buy a condo in a highly-competitive market, but Lloyd's expertise made all the difference!
As first time home buyers, Lloyd was a knowledgable counselor whose experience and ability to navigate the offer process proved invaluable. We are extremely grateful for his time, insight, ethical practices, and willingness to go the extra mile for his clients.
LLoyd did an amazing job in a very tough and competitive market. It was his negotiating that won the contract over a very similar bid from another agent. He was always honest and looking out for my best interest. Couldn't have been happier and will recommend him to anyone looking for a home.
Lloyd has been our buyers agent for the past three years. We weren't entirely sure what we wanted, and he was excellent at helping us narrow our focus, present only homes that met our criteria, and eventually found our perfect home. Everyone who buys in Fort Collins, however, knows that this is only the first step in actually managing to buy a house. After we found our house, he gave us invaluable advice for how to create an offer that would appeal to sellers in the crazy-bonkers real estate market that is Fort Collins right now. There were, I believe, six other offers for the property we chose, and we won, even though we didn't necessarily have the highest monetary offer. Basically, he can help you find a house, and help you close on a house. He's extremely detail-oriented, and during the closing process (which just happened today) he ensured that everyone was being accurate and keeping to all of the terms of the contract, protecting us all along the way. It was an outstanding experience, and we ended up with the house of our dreams. If we end up looking at rental property, we will absolutely be using Lloyd in the future...that's a no-brainer decision.
Lloyd was recommended to us and we could not be happier with the service and advice he provided. Lloyd listened to what we wanted and then guided us expertly through the process. He was very responsive to any questions and available whenever we needed him. I would highly recommend Lloyd to anyone and would not hesitate to use again.
After meeting Lloyd and seeing what kind of service and education he would provide, I was comfortable returning home (1200 miles away from Ft. Collins) and letting him continue to lead the search for my new home. Despite the market's volatility, he pursued my goal as if it were his own. I highly recommend Lloyd Smith to anyone in the buying/selling market as he is talented, knowledgeable, and principled.
Lloyd was so professional and knowledgeable through this whole process. He helped my son purchase his first home. He is very personable. I felt like we were working with a friend.
Lloyd was fantastic. He walked us though every step of the way and gave us honest and important insight. In Fort Collins the market is tough and having an experienced real estate professional can make all the difference. I highly recommend Lloyd!
We worked with Lloyd to sell our home as we are building a new home in the area. Lloyd explained his approach, did the initial market analysis with no obligation and did not pressure us to sign a listing agreement. In fact, we were up front about considering keeping the home as a rental and Lloyd was careful to advise us to not sign until we were sure we wanted sell yet did a great job of helping us understand the price we could expect to get if we did sell. Due to initial construction delays we did not sign the listing agreement for several months and while Lloyd followed up from time to time he did not apply pressure - he understands how the construction process works and is keenly tuned into the market and the time frame it would likely take to sell and close on our specific home. Once we signed the agreement Lloyd sprang into action and before we knew it we were staged and on the market. We followed Lloyd's recommendations to a "T" as we prepared to show and it worked - we accepted an offer within a couple days of listing, well above asking price (and I do not feel the asking price was low - in fact it was quite a bit higher than a solid comp two doors away just 6 months earlier) with competing and back-up offers. Lloyd did an excellent job of negotiating when the buyer asked for some minor concessions to accommodate their situation and made sure we did not leave money on the table. Lloyd is professional, efficient, on top of all the details and exceeded our expectations when it came to the final results. From listing to closing was exactly 3 weeks (!) thanks to a very well-qualified buyer and Lloyd's diligence in making sure everything was in order before we accepted and keeping everything in order as closing approached. Thanks, Lloyd!
Lloyd is simply the best. He's sharp, meticulous, and knows the market really well. He staged our house for the sale and it ended up selling well over the asking price. I cannot recommend him enough.
Our selling experience with Lloyd was very positive. He is very professional, hard working, and honest, and knows how to achieve results quickly. He gave us good advice regarding the asking price, and provided a professional stager and professional photographer, at no cost to us. Both he and the stager gave us a long list of improvements to implement in order to give the home a broader appeal. The end result was that our house had two offers for above the asking price the day after it was listed (due to his negotiation skills, and the fact that we followed his recommendations in improving the appearance of the property). We highly recommend Lloyd if you want to put your house on the market.
We just closed on our first house and couldn't be happier with Lloyd and his team. They truly go above and beyond to make the house-buying experience as easy and stressless as possible. Lloyd met with us for the first time at Coldwell and had a Powerpoint presentation prepared for our meeting. He is thorough and knows his stuff! We went over all our wants and needs and discussed what was reasonable and what was necessary. He does an excellent job of listening and, in turn, preparing your personalized website for house hunting. He was always on time to all appointments and available to us for any questions or concerns at almost all times. If he was not available, one of his team members was; which is HUGE for a first time home buyer with lots of questions and concerns all the time. He was great at letting us work through our thought processes before adding in his opinion which I felt was a very important trait. He was extremely well organized and knowledgeable about what kind of investment we were making and what was best for us in the long-run. His team was also extremely knowledgeable and prompt in answering any questions or concerns we had when it came to the financial paperwork and such. Even when we hit a brick wall on the day of closing and the selling realtor was rude, non-helpful, and created a very hostile and unprofessional environment, Lloyd was there, ready to step up to plate and do what needed to get done. In every aspect of searching for and buying a house, Lloyd exceeded all of our expectations. I would recommend him to any and everyone! We will certainly go back to Lloyd should we ever decide to buy again or sell.
Lloyd was wonderful to work with. We live out of state and Lloyd definitely went above and beyond his duties as realtor! We appreciated having him as our realtor! Lloyd helped us find the proper contractors for painting, flooring, and yard work. Some smaller projects he even did himself! Our house sold same day it went on market! He is a very pleasant person and truly aims to help and sell your house! He was very helpful with any negotiations that needed done.
As out of town buyers in a fast-moving market, we needed to see five properties an evening and make offers promptly. Lloyd set up showings of relevant homes on our on demanding schedule, and helped us write competitive offers, sometimes near midnight. After we bought a house, Lloyd provided useful recommendations for local services like sprinkler maintenance. I would recommend Lloyd for his expertise about the Fort Collins market, knowledge of real estate contracts and work ethic.
This was our first home purchase. We had no idea how the process went. After our first meeting with Lloyd we were immensely more well-informed. He spent three hours explaining the whole thing to us. We left that meeting with a very warm and fuzzy feeling. After that the good times just kept coming. Lloyd is a straight shooter, and he knows everything. His contracting experience is a huge asset when assessing the condition of a house. His negotiating tactics are especially sharp. We were in a very competitive situation, and he made all the right calls and won the bid. It went down exactly as he predicted. We won by $350. I plan to buy another 4 or 5 rental properties, and I won't even consider working with anyone else. I trust Lloyd implicitly. Added bonus: when you work with Lloyd, you also get Shanna Keller, an excellent loan officer.
We found Lloyd by chance and were glad we did. There was never a moment where we wondered who Lloyd worked for, he was out guy and earned out business and recommendation. If you are looking for someone who will work hard to make sure you are taken care of, Think of things you may not have, and to be sure that you get the best value Lloyd is your guy.
Lloyd got us into a magnificent home quickly and for 10k less than I was expecting. I have already recommended him to multiple friends and will continue to do so at every opportunity.
Lloyd takes his commitment as your real estate agent very seriously. He exemplifies professionalism and really does go 'above and beyond'. At the time of our home search, the real estate market for buyers was challenging, as houses would sell almost immediately. Every call I made to Lloyd , was answered , and he would succeed to make an appointment to view any house as soon as possible, usually within an hour or two. Lloyd's superior knowledge allowed him to point out certain positive and negative issues when we toured a home for sale. When we came to negotiations , Lloyd was a master, resolving issues to the satisfaction of both seller and buyer. I could go on and on, but in summary, Lloyd will be there for YOU, from beginning to end !
Lloyd helped me to purchase my first home in early 2015. He was highly professional and easy to work with throughout the entire process. The housing market in Fort Collins was incredibly hot and seller-friendly, so it is important to have an agent who is ready to help at a moment's notice, whether it's to show a home that just hit the market, write an offer, or discuss strategy. Lloyd was constantly available by phone, text, and email to ensure we didn't miss any potential opportunities. He brings years of experience in real estate to the table, and provides a great deal of insight and negotiation skills which are invaluable to securing a home in a market like this. I'd recommend Lloyd to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in Colorado!
Lloyd was very knowledgable and helpful through out our experience. He helped us get in our home very fast and with no games. If/when I find a new home, he will definitely be my realtor.
Lloyd was very professional, and helpful in the selling of my house. He made the difficult decision of selling my house after the passing of my wife, and moving across country to be with my kids and grandkids , a Quick, painless, and profitable event . He was more than just a businessman , he was a Real and caring friend .
As a first time home buyer and new to this area, Lloyd was great to work with. He helped me walk through the process from start to finish. He helped me understand everything and made sure I was comfortable at every turn.
Our experience with Lloyd was very enjoyable. We were new to the area and Lloyd did a great job explaining the Colorado process of purchasing as well as issues to look for in the home itself. He was very thorough in explaining every step. I felt like he was genuinely looking out for our best interest. I was also impressed with his responsiveness and patience as we looked at houses.
Lloyd was our realtor when we purchased our home in 2011. He worked very hard to help us find the home that fit our needs. Lloyd did a wonderful job helping us find our home. In 2014, we used Lloyd to list our home. He was able to sell our home very quick for full price. Please consider Lloyd. I know you will not be disappointed.
I had an excellent experience with Lloyd in buying my new home. Coming out of the recession, it has been an unusual real estate market. Local demand is very high. None the less I was presented with a good variety of properties to meet my needs. I threw Lloyd a curve on one prospective property but he didn't miss a beat, understood my perspective and we quickly moved onto other options. Lloyd is just a great person to get to know, if you have real estate needs all the better.
Lloyd Smith is the consummate professional. He worked with us as we relocated from New York until we found the perfect Colorado home. During this time he was enthusiastic and patient and never wavered in his commitment to us to find the right home. His expertise in contracts is impressive.
Lloyd Smith was our Buyer’s Agent when relocating from San Diego, CA to Fort Collins, CO. We selected Lloyd Smith having poured over the many on-line reviews of agents in North Colorado/ Fort Collins and conducting an on the telephone interview. Lloyd Smith was outstanding as he represented us in the purchase of our new home. Lloyd Smith’s exemplary realtor traits include being punctual at all appointments; looking out for our best interest when asked regarding a particular house and/ or neighborhood; always in communication either by text, e-mail, and/ or telephone conversation when we had a question or to remind us of an upcoming important event during the purchasing process; aiding us in our search for the right home without having to spend hours driving around from house to house; and just a genuinely honest gentleman with a touch of class. Lloyd Smith is our recommendation to our friends and family for those who are looking to relocate to the Fort Collins area.
Lloyd was excellent to work with! I've already recommended him to people I know. After walking away from closing on our house, my husband and I turned to each other and said "Wow, did we get lucky!". Not only was he knowledgeable, flexible with his schedule, and enthusiastic about helping us find the right house, but he connected us with other excellent resources to get our loan and do some work on the house and fought fiercely for us any time it was required. He patiently stuck with us over several months as we looked for the right place. We never felt pressured to hurry up and buy something. He made sure we knew anything he knew about the houses, gave honest opinions always, and made sure we were making a smart purchase. In the end, we purchased our first house, which is absolutely beautiful and well within our price range. Thank you, Lloyd! We appreciated every bit of work you did for us.
Lloyd is a great real estate agent. He had all the bases covered when he helped us find our Dream House. Lloyd also helped up secure a wonderful finance person so we could get a good mortgage rate for our home purchase. My experience with Lloyd was all good. He was outstanding from our first meeting to the closing. He helped navigate the red hot housing market, and made sure all the details were taken care of so we could concentrate on finding the perfect house. Our experience with Lloyd showed him to be 100% committed to being the best real estate agent west of the Mississippi River. I have recommended him to Friends, Family and Coworkers and will continue to do so in the Future.
When you need the job done right and it's not something you can do yourself you hire a professional. But you just don't hire anyone you hire the right one, the one with a strong record of success, the one who gets results. It took Lloyd less than a week to sell my property and for full listing price! It was a great experience and if ever I need to buy or sell a property again he will be my go to choice.
Lloyd is very knowledgeable and responsive. He quickly address your concerns and looks for solutions to any problems that may arise. He reponds quickly to phone calls and emails. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
My husband and I recently moved to Colorado from Pennsylvania with the hope of buying our dream home. We were looking for a very specific type of rural property in the Colorado market. Luckily, we had Lloyd Smith to help us find the perfect home! Lloyd worked with us for almost a year before we found the home that was right for us! The process was not easy, but Lloyd made the home buying experience so pleasant. He always had OUR best interest in mind and treated us like family. The personal attention we received was truly amazing!!! No one can compare to Lloyd Smith!!!!
Lloyd was personable, knowledgable, organized, and generous with his time. My husband and I looked at houses and lots from Bellevue, CO down to Lyons and then over to Estes Park. Lloyd was great in handling the offer process and helping to determine a price. We ended up purchasing two items: a lot to build on and acreage in the mountains for a hunting/camping retreat.
My wife and I needed an agent to represent us as Buyers in our relocation from Missouri to Colorado. Lloyd was excellent and we never regretted selecting him. We interviewed three “5 star” rated agents active in the FTC/Loveland area. While all were obviously capable, Lloyd stood out as the most prepared, responsive and understanding of our requirements. Our active search continued for more than 5 months. Notwithstanding numerous trips for our home search, we could not find the style home we wanted in the existing home stock. Lloyd assisted us in purchasing both the land for our new home in Loveland, and also a mountain retreat property. Lloyd was invaluable in getting to see difficult to find rural and “0” numbered properties. Lloyd was very helpful in assessing market value and developing offer and counter offer strategies. Lloyd exercises excellent judgment, is hard working, ethical and generous of his time, knowledge and experience. I recommend him without reservation.
Working with Loyd Smith, was an awesome experience. He made the whole process go smoothly and also recommended a very good lender. Extremely professional, I already recommended him to my family and friends. If you're looking for someone that will take care of you and walk you through the whole experience, then you will enjoy Loyd as your realtor.
We met LLoyd through an internet search of good local realtors. He responded within a few hours of our request, and from that point on, he guided us through all the procedures necessary to locate and buy our home with ease. First, he met with us to determine our desires in terms of pricing and locations. He explained all his methods and got us into an internet program where we could look at all the upcoming homes in our price range and with the amenities we wanted. Within a couple of months we found our home, closed on it and are now enjoying living in it. He has great knowledge of the whole process, and is a great person to spend time with.
I found it very comforting to have LLoyd as our Realtor. He made me feel confident that we would find the right home for our big move to Colorado. The MY SITE feature he provided was most helpful in making our selection.
Lloyd was friendly and professional and made the whole home buying process go very smoothly. He gave valuable input and made us feel we were his only clients. Without Lloyd, we would have never have found the house we are in and with all the features we were looking for in a house. I recommend you call him to have him help you. What are you waiting for? Call him now!!
Having purchased several houses and selling several homes in the past 35 years, I would put LLoyd Smith at the top of all the agents I had the pleasure of working with. He got the job done in minimum time, met all my needs and expectations in a very timely manner and followed up with me at every phase of the purchase. Great Job.
Having only purchased a house once before in my life, I was initially intimidated about the prospect of selling my first house and buying a new one. However, working with Lloyd changed that completely. His expert skills and well-rounded knowledge of virtually every facet of both selling my old house and buying a new one made the process as smooth as could be. He also has access to many resources that helped tremendously! Need some siding work? He can refer you to a very capable guy. Need to get your house staged? He’ll help out with that too. Need a piano moved…… you get the idea! Working with Lloyd is one stop shopping. You can’t go wrong with him! He had the expertise, skills, contacts, and worked closely with us the entire time so we always knew what we needed to do, and when. His expert skill helped us close early on our new house, and we even sold our old house for 10K over asking price! I highly recommend Lloyd to anyone considering buying or selling a house. You won’t be disappointed!
This was my first experience to purchase a home and I am so glad that Lloyd was my realtor. He was so knowledgeable and very passionate about helping anybody finding a home of their dream. He is honest and sincere. He is an amazing negotiator, too. He managed the seller to agree to fix something that the seller once said no. I had a lot of questions throughout the process and every time when I contacted him, he got right back to me with his answers. Lloyd went out of his way to ensure that I understood everything that I sign. I have learned a lot of negotiation tactic from him and as a result, I now own my dream home. Buying a home can be scary, time consuming, and physically and emotionally exhausting, but Lloyd made this experience much less stressful and very memorable one for me. Lloyd will be my life-long realtor and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor who can help you find your dream home.
Lloyd was fantastic! He helped me sell my 2 bedroom condo. We received a full price offer before the condo was officially listed! Lloyd understands the importance of appealing to the buyers taste and has a stager come in to provide assistance. Sandy has great advice and will ensure your home is ready to be sold. This was my first home sale and Lloyd made sure I understood every step of the process and took time to answer all my questions.
Lloyd is the very best agent we have ever dealt with. I would and will highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in an honest and extremely helpful agent. I don't think he could be better - he goes more than the extra mile to help!
Lloyd Smith was fantastic. He took action from the second that he showed up to our home. He gave us great direction along with his great alliance Sandy, who helped us stage our home to appeal to prospective buyers. Lloyd was on top of every detail the entire time our house was on the market, and within about two months we were under contract. He researched the area to price our home just right, and we received our asking price on only our second offer. I highly recommend Lloyd to anyone who desires a true expert that really earns his commission.
Lloyd Smith was the right realtor for us when it came to finding our home. He went above and beyond showing us over thirty homes out of his normal area. He was very patient in finding us the right home for our needs. Lloyd was a great advocate for us when it came to negotiating, and he even went to bat for us when our lender (not one of Lloyd's recommended lenders) tried to change our mortgage terms. I would definitely recommend Lloyd Smith to anyone in the market for a new home.
Lloyd Smith was an absolute joy to work with. He is quick to respond to all forms of communication, including last minute, late in the day emails. We could always expect that he would arrive for a house tour at the time determined, and always notified us if he would be even a few minutes off due to extenuating circumstances. Lloyd is well informed on the home buying process and was able to relate that information to us in a way we could understand and not be intimated by. While it took us some time to finally find the right house, Lloyd was always enthusiastic to help us. We are so thankful that we had a great realtor and have already shared his information with others. Thank you for the wonderful experience, we are sincerely grateful.
To whom it may concern: Lloyd did what he said, when he said he would do it. He was completely knowledgeable concerning the business and the law. He was available when I needed his help. He was completely honest with me. He is an excellent negotiator. I was most comfortable that my interests were well cared for in his hands. I am in the midst of another purchase and he is handling this for me as well. I highly recommend him without reservation. Oscar William Cooper Jr.
After reading all the excellent testimonials about Lloyd on Zillow, we decided to call him from California to meet him in Colorado. After meeting him in person, there was no doubt that we had the right agent. With his straight forward and honest answers combined with his easy going temperment and patience, our search for a house became a learning process, which helped us understand today's market and eventually led us to decide what factors to consider more than others. Thanks to his excellent knowledge and expert advice,we have a home now. Don't hesitate to call him if you need excellent service for your real estate needs.
If you want a Realtor you can trust, someone who will be a step ahead of the process and who will treat you like you are his only customer, call Lloyd Smith! He knows his business and will treat you with priority and respect! He was absolutely awesome!!
Lloyd was responsive and knowledgeable through the whole process. He laid out his and our expectations in a clear and concise manner from beginning to end. His knowledge goes beyond the real estate market and made him an Ace in our pocket when we needed him most. We will use him again. Thanks, Nick & Diana
Dedication, professionalism and attention to detail are the three attributes to describe Lloyd's service as your agent. His ability to resource and strong network of professionals guide you seamlessly through the entire buy/sell process (from stager to new home closing.) Lloyd's dedication to customers makes you feel like an only client, yet his experience shines through. His background in construction and contract negotiation are unique skills you wont find in other agents. If you choose another agent, hope Lloyd is not on the other side of the closing table, because Lloyd's clients probably got the better deal.
We sold our home more quickly (two days!!!) and for more than we expected thanks in part to Lloyd's expertise and commitment. We received great pre-listing assistance from him, and once under contract he was sure to walk us through each scenario every step of the way. Additionally, he helped us find a new dream home for a great price! He also caught two of our service providers' errors (lender and home insurance) that saved us a ton of money. I would recommend Lloyd to any of my friends and family.
I recently bought my first home with Lloyd. I once was a realtor myself and his level of professionalism really amazed me. I would recommend Lloyd to anyone looking for an outstanding realtor. I will definitely utilize his expertise when it comes time to sell or make another purchase!
As first time homebuyers my husband and I were completely clueless! Lloyd thoroughly answered every question we had (and questions of which we would have never thought). He has great skill and knowledge in real estate. The time from which we started the home buying process to the time we found our home was very brief, and that was GREATLY due to Lloyd. Integrity is crucial in a real estate agent and you can definitely count on Lloyd's integrity! I would highly recommend him. Amber Bullock
We just bought our first home and being the fact that it was our first home I was afraid of the whole process and trying to figure it all out, but Lloyd made the buying process simple and was a huge help along the way.
I have spent my career in marketing and sales and as a result I have met a lot of realtors. Lloyd is one of the few who really stood out. He really knows his craft and takes an active role to help you sell your house. Rather than just list my house he helped me come up with a strategic plan. On his advice, I put a little work into the house, we staged it, he marketed it all while I was out of state. The result: we had multiple offers in the first 2 days and it sold(meaning under contract which later closed on time) on day 3 for the full asking price! We even had back up offers. I would recommend Lloyd to anyone in Northern Colorado. He is not just a friendly face he is a skilled strategic partner. Scott, Fort Collins, CO
Simply THE BEST.I picked Lloyd off Zillow as a potential agent to sell my house.Since the interview to selling my house it has been smooth ride.Sandy interior decorator (miracle worker :) turn my house into place I could not recognize .Lloyd used his marketing skills to hit the marked in a perfect way.Bottom line I sold my house for $550K which was 20K more than my asking price 1 hr after we put for sale sign in my front yard !!!.If you can beat that good luck if you wish for something like that give Lloyd/Sandy a call and I promise you won't be disappointed.I know this review may sound to good to be truth or real but this is my honest evaluation of this team.
Anyone I come in contact with that is thinking about selling a home I always recommend Lloyd. My husband and I had tried to sell our home on a couple of occasions and were not successful. We decided to wait until the economy picked back up and just as we noticed it starting to turn we got in contact with Lloyd. He is very professional and knowledgeable and we knew he would be able to sell our home. The stager and professional photographer were definitely a huge plus. We had our home under contract within 6 HOURS of the home being listed!
This was the first time that we have worked with Lloyd. We met him by happenstance when we decided to purchase a condominium for our son who will be attending CSU in the fall. With his expertise, knowledge, and contacts we accomplished that goal much sooner than we originally anticipated. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish!
Lloyd Smith is by far the best real estate agent I’ve worked with. When Lloyd promised “over the top” service, he really meant it. I was extremely impressed with his overall knowledge and attention to detail. Lloyd helped us get top dollar for our home by doing a detailed market analysis and bringing in a great stager and photographer at his expense. Our house was under contract in only a couple of weeks! When buying our new home, Lloyd’s experience and negotiating skills really came in handy. We were able to close in a very short time so that we could go from one home straight to the other. He saved us a lot of money on the final purchase price as well! Throughout the entire process, Lloyd kept all parties well informed. I felt confident that Lloyd was on top of things the entire time.
I would highly recommend Lloyd Smith as your realtor. When selling our home, he hired a professional stager and photographer to get the maximum market value for our property. His excellent communication, proactivity and attention to details made for an "over the top" sales experience. When purchasing our new home, Lloyd made every effort to keep us informed of all the new listings. From the initial offer until the final closing, Lloyd's negotiating skills were a huge benefit.
Lloyd did an excellent job helping us prepare our house for showing by hiring a stager. (Who was also excellent). He also hired a professional photographer to photograph our home for brochures and an online video. In todays real estate market, it is critical that a home can be found and viewed online. Lloyd marketed our home on YouTube, Craigslist, Zillow and Trulia. It was a pleasure working with Lloyd.
Lloyd's attention to detail is in every part of the transaction is a great thing to have on your side. His work behind the scenes makes him a great realtor to have on your side. Thank you Lloyd for your hard work on such a smooth transaction.
If you want an average run of the mill Realtor don't use Lloyd. If you want a realtor who is outstanding, an incredible negotiator and a crazy hard worker, Lloyds your man.This is my second home purchase with Lloyd here in Fort Collins and he has sold one for me as well (in record time). My wife and I are looking forward to our next purchase with Lloyd. He's a stand up guy who knows his stuff. This is my 8th home purchase and I have dealt with some real turkeys in Real estate world but Lloyd has always been great to work with. Hope this helps anyone looking to buy or sell. Cheers. Dave Russell
Lloyd Smith is the best of the best! He sold our mountain home property within six months in a challenging market and with unforeseen obstacles. Even with wildfires and resulting mudslides closing the roads, he was a committed partner! Lloyd is ethical, honest, and very knowledgeable in his field. His thoroughness and attention to detail at the beginning and throughout the process made a huge difference for both us and the buyer. Lloyd is without a doubt, the best agent we have ever worked with as either a buyer or seller. I should also mention that we had several interested parties and received above asking price for our home. Lloyd was not only our listing agent, but he was committed to be our selling agent! Lloyd surrounds himself with other professionals in the industry that support him from prior to listing through closing. This made escrow and closing very smooth. Because of his ability to organize and plan, he seems to be one step ahead of what anyone might need be it a buyer with a question or during escrow. Lloyd not only understands his business, but truly understands what it means to be in the service industry. Without a doubt, my husband and I would highly recommend Lloyd Smith! I do not think you will find anyone more knowledgeable or committed to you.
Lloyd goes above and beyond for his clients. He's available when you need him, always punctual, and communicates regularly so you know what is going on. He's knowledgeable and honest, answers all your questions, and won't try pushing you into a house you don't want. I can't imagine going through my first home-buying process with any other real estate agent and I'm very fortunate to have found Lloyd. There is not enough praise I can give him for his services. You will surely not be disappointed.
Lloyd did a wonderful job of helping us to buy a home! He was thorough and knowledge about the entire process. He did an awesome job for us, which was a difficult situation at times, but Lloyd keep the process moving forward for us to become home owners. Thank you so much!
We sold our house by owner. We had the opportunity to work with Lloyd as he represented the buyer in the purchase of our home. He was very professional and ensured that both sides of the deal were taken care of. He communicated often and was responsive to our questions and needs. We appreciated his hard work and positive attitude in every aspect of the sale.
Lloyd put in a lot of man hours doing research in helping us find the home to fit our needs. I would and have recommended him to friends,
We were so lucky to find Lloyd. Honest and straight forward, he went out of his way to make buying our first home as stress free and easy as possible. He not only helped us to find the perfect house to meet our needs but expertly walked us through every step of the purchasing process. His skills and experience were invaluable to us and he was such a joy to work with. Whether buying or selling, it is hard to imagine anyone better qualified to help you with your housing needs. My husband, dog and I give him four thumbs (and four paws) up. Thank you Lloyd! - The Frys
It has been an absolute joy to work with Lloyd! This was my first time buying a home, and he took his time to go through everything with me to ensure I understood and felt comfortable with the process. I never had to worry about dates or something not being taken care of in a timely manner, as Lloyd was always ten steps ahead of the process. His knowledge, kindness, organizational skills, and overall expertise put me at ease and made the home buying process stress free - well, as stress free as home buying can be. Not only did I find a great agent, I found a new friend.
We had the best experience using Lloyd as our realtor when purchasing a condo in Fort Collins. We were looking for housing for our daughter who attends CSU. In today's real estate market, buying made more sense then renting. I inquired about a property on Realtor.com that he had listed. He got back to me right away. The condo I inquired about had already been made an offer on, but Lloyd was able to help us with another condo that was actually a HUD property and one that worked out better for us. We closed within 45 days. His knowledge in all aspects of real estate is amazing, especially working with a HUD property, which requires a lot of attention to government rules when writing the contract. He also recommended a mortgage broker who made the loan process very easy. She was great! We would highly recommend Lloyd for any real estate transaction. We live in Denver and he handled all issues and even met a plumber for an estimate regarding the property in Fort Collins for us. Our daughter is thrilled with her new condo and we have Lloyd to thank.
My neighbor recommended Lloyd to me. He previously worked with Lloyd before and speaks highly about Lloyd's knowledge and expertise in the real estates industry. So I decided to contact Lloyd to see what he could do to help me find the ideal home. When I first met Lloyd, I had a two hours meeting with him regarding what kind of property that I was interested in. During that two hours, not only Lloyd was able to identify what I was looking for, but also he was able to pick up what my general concerns on housing. For example, since I travel a lot for work and most of the times are out of the state, Lloyd was able to identify that I want a place that I didn't have to do a lot of work on or regular maintenances. During the two hours meeting, Lloyd was able to set up the criteria's I described and put them into a software he uses. Usually I am pretty suspicious about those search engines software. However, this software he uses really changed my mind. The properties that software showed me were about 90-95% accurate to what I was looking for. And the most important part is all those properties are new listings or with the most currently updated status. This feature really saves me a lot of time searching around on different sites. I was able to pick out one property and looked at this after 1 week. And I ended up purchasing this property. Throughout the whole process prior to closing, Lloyd kept me fully informed on every single step. I was very impressed with the digit-sign feature he uses when I was traveling. This feature saves the time and effort for me to meet him somewhere to sign some of the paperwork. I was travelling between Canada and the U.S. during most of the closing process. Lloyd also worked with a very experienced mortgage broker. That broker also made this purchase went flawlessly. Overall, I was very very impressed with the professional service and expertise in the real estate industry. I will use Lloyd in the future again for my real estate purchases. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property.
I had friends sell (and then purchase) properties with Lloyd and both of them had buyers right away. I was skeptical, since I had listed previously with another realtor in town that has been around a long time, and it didn't sell. Lloyd was very up front and honest. He hired a professional staging person who went through the apartment with me and told me what needed to be changed. Lloyd was very generous with his time and even his money to get the condo ready for listing. The staging person brought in furniture, a photographer took pictures, and Lloyd purchased a new domain name with the address of the property to list it. I had an offer for more than the asking price in about 12 hours after it was listed. I would highly recommend Lloyd to anyone. He definitely exceeded my expectations.
From the first day that you decide to sell your home, when the excitement is so high that you burn dinner and the entire house is permeated with the smell of burnt offerings, to the last few hours before closing when the upstairs toilet becomes impossibly clogged, selling a home and moving can be an invitation to stress. Lloyd sold our house in three days decreasing our stress time considerably. If you decide to sell your house, do not call us. CALL LLOYD!
When working with an agent the best quality is constancy and honesty. From the first time we met him he was honest and up front on all aspects of our working relationship. He used a unique market analysis to paint us a picture of what we could expect when selling our home. He then walked us through his process for selling a home. We followed his process, and were able to sell our home with in days of putting it on the market. When any problem came up during negotiation, he worked hard to fix them. When it came time to find a new place, his negotiation talents shined. Lloyd didn’t disappear when all the negotiations were complete, he kept in constant contact with us. I would personally recommend Lloyd to anyone who wants to sell their home fast for a fair market value. I also recommend following his process because it gives you the best possible chance to sell your home.
It's hard to fully explain how amazing Lloyd is at his job. From the initial contact through to completing our transaction here in Fort Collins, Lloyd's level of service was always one step ahead of our expectations. He is an excellent communicator, and quickly showed himself as a trustworthy and honest agent. What else? He's friendly and personable.
I highly recommend Lloyd as a realtor. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and never once pressuring to make a deal. We contacted Lloyd from London, UK, before we relocated to Fort Collins. He was the only agent who took our query seriously, even though it took us months before we actually arrived to Colorado. We looked at dozens of condos in a span of a couple weeks only, to settle on a perfect home. He was tireless to set up viewings and offer us suggestions on vendors, pricing, neighbourhoods and other useful information. When it came to negotiating a deal, we got our first choice, and closed in a matter or 2 weeks.
Hard-working, ethical, detail-oriented, and demonstrated true concern for our finding the perfect property.
I dreaded selling my condo in this market but Lloyd did an excellent job of helping me to understand the finer points of the process and he made it as painless as possible. Most importantly from a seller's perspective, we priced my home competitively and we were under contract in a week with a full price offer! I attribute this to Lloyd's excellent marketing and presentation. He brought in a professional stager for a preliminary consultation and then a follow-up and he was tremendously helpful as I prepared my home for sale. His marketing is absolutely top-notch as well! He built a website to advertise my property (not an MLS listing -- a unique website), stocked it with excellent photos done by a professional photographer, and his printed materials were absolutely top-notch. My listing appeared at the top of all of the major real estate sites and we had many visitors at the one open house that we did (we were under contract so quickly that we never did a second!). I appreciate attention to detail and I'm not happy simply accepting somebody else's advice without understanding *why* they're giving that advice. Lloyd did an excellent job of explaining the finer points of the selling process, it's regulations, requirements, negotiating points, etc which gave me the knowledge to judge his recommendations for myself. It takes time and patience to educate a seller such as myself and Lloyd did an outstanding job! Really, Lloyd excelled in all aspects of the selling process, and I enthusiastically recommend him!
As a beginning investor, his skill as a negotiator has saved me several thousand dollars, which pleases me greatly. But what pleases me most is his sense of fairness to all his buyers and sellers. He is an asset to the real estate business. My many relatives are highly impressed with his ability to do the right thing, so you won't ever be disappointed with Lloyd Smith. Do it right and with a clear conscience. I think that I shall never see, a Salesman quite as good as he. A man who never really rests A man who always does his best, A man who treats us all so grand, who always gives a helping hand, and we can highly recommend. Sincerely, Carol Sadusky
Lloyd has become a good friend because of his professional work in helping us find just the right home. His integrity is very important to him which is apparent in everything he does, and his friendly nature made it easy to work with him. He was always accommodating and willing to go out of his way to make sure we found what we were looking for. He is not a high pressure salesman, but works hard to put his clients first in order to meet their needs. We highly recommend him.
Lloyd was very friendly, paid attention to detail, showed us more than 35 homes cheerfully, answered all of our questions patiently, explained each stage in the process of buying a home to us since we were first time buyers, and is definitely an outstanding agent who I would recommend to others.
It had been quite a while since we purchased a home, so we were a little nervous when we began that process again. But I have say, Lloyd made the whole home buying process a great experience. He not only made it easier for us, but he also made it enjoyable. He gave great attention to every detail and was very professional in every aspect. From finding the homes that fit our criteria, to setting up showings that fit our schedule, from the negotiation process, all the way to the closing, Lloyd walked us through each step and answered all our questions along the way (and we had a lot of them). He put many hours into helping us and was always available (even when we called last minute). In the end, Lloyd found the perfect home for our family! If you are looking for a real estate agent... I would recommend without hesitation Lloyd Smith.
The main thing I loved about working with Lloyd is he worked for me and not a quick buck. Right off the bat he lined up a professional stager who gave a thorough list of things that would improve the look and feel of the home. He had great photos taken of the property (by great I mean he hired someone instead of taking photos himself with his cell phone to save a buck). We were under contract in less than a week and Lloyd helped us find another home the following weekend. Through the whole process he was very helpful and thorough. Can't wait to buy another home with Lloyd!
