The Smith Team, led by leading real estate broker and new development expert, Patrick W. Smith, specialize in the offering of luxury property for sale, the representation of discerning buyers in the purchase of condominium, cooperative and townhouse residences and new development sales and project marketing, on behalf of real estate developers.
Regarding our work with buyers, we carefully listen to each buyer and develop a set of criteria that is approved by the buyer. The approved criteria become the basis for identifying properties, both on and off market. Patrick then provides the buyer with a comprehensive analysis and opinion of value for each property the buyer expresses interest in. If the client authorizes an offer, Patrick personally manages all negotiations and the client is provided real-time updates and daily reports throughout the search and purchase process. We take great pride in our craft, in providing our buyers with undivided loyalty, and in exceeding every buyer’s expectations.
Regarding our work with sellers, similar to our approach with buyers, we listen to the seller to understand their point of view, parameters and experiences in the market. We carefully evaluate the Subject Property and we thoroughly analyze sales activity in the building and in the neighborhood, prior to providing a price recommendation. Every seller receives a customized and strategic marketing and advertising program, consisting of extensive collateral material, social media, digital media, online advertising, print advertising and public relations. We work with the best interiors and architectural photographers, videographers, graphic designers and stagers. We hold regular open houses, promote the listings in our prominent storefront locations and at broker events. Our proven system insures that our clients achieve the highest possible price.
Regarding our work with real estate developers, The Smith Team is the premier new development sales and marketing team in Long Island City. Patrick is immersed in all aspects of The Smith Team’s new development assignments, working closely with our developer clients, from site acquisition through the sale of the final home.
