REVIEWS

Jean had sourced the buyer and was acting as a dual-agent, but we never felt that out interests were misrepresented, and despite some aggressive asks from the buyer, we were able to execute an efficient transaction working through Jean and her team. Integrity and communication were central to the success of our sale, and I would not hesitate to hire any members of the team again.

Excellent feedback after all showings both from prospective buyers and showing brokers. Expert staging advice and provider of furnishings including bedding, towels and bedspreads. Insightful recommendations on landscaping, and new furniture for outdoor areas. Diligently provided market knowledge. Communicated daily to keep us up to the minute on showing follow ups and recommended adjustments to strategy to position house and on pricing adjustments. Obtained a higher price that our listing price. Incredible!

Jean was such a pleasure to work with. She listed and carefully staged the house that we fell in love in. It was very impressive what she did with the listing - digging out the history of the house, framing surveys, local maps and pictures of the house in different years for display, packing away all the stuff accumulated by the sellers over near 5 decades. She presented to us this 150 year old house with all its charm but non of the cluster. We immediately asked her to act as our buyers agent as well upon seeing the house - just for the convenience of the transaction. Jean turned out to be a surprisingly great buyers' agent as well. She didn't simply rush us towards signing the contract and getting the deal done. Instead she urged us to do all the due diligence of critical inspection work, cautioned us on typical things to look out for with houses in the area and gave many other useful tips about the neighborhood. On top of that, she even invited us to her dinner party and introduced us to other people who newly moved into the neighborhood - all after the housing transaction was done. Jean is such a great person to work with and with such in-depth knowledge of the area. You would not regret to have her as your agent. You'd be especially glad you have her on your side when you need to figure out how the property tax grievance works in this weird Westchester bureaucracy, or how the never-heard-of and yet quintessential papers required for closing could be obtained - such as a "predate CO". If you need to Google what that is, you know you need a local expert like Jean.

Great experience, we loved working with Jean. We were looking to get things done fast and closed just two months after our house went on the market. She held open houses for three straight weeks and got it done.

Jean Cameron Smith is a consummate professional who brings an impressive set of skills to real estate. What particularly stands out in our experience with Jean is that she brings her total person to managing the transaction and in so doing is able to resolve difficulties before they occur. Her integrity and that of her team as well as their warmth and humanity make what might be a tense and difficult interaction a civilized one where everybody feels good. We need more Jeans in this world!

Jean was a wonderful agent who helped us purchase our new home. She helped throughout the entire process making it go as smooth as possible. Her knowledge of the area made it easy to answer our questions. She even knew about all the interesting history. Jean truly helped us make Croton our new home. Jean took my partner on a tour of Croton to help show her places we'd be interested in. Overall great experience and would recommend Jean wholeheartedly.

Jean went above and beyond in assisting in the sale of our home. We resided in a unique, picturesque property, which also required a particular type of buyer who would take advantage of all the property had to offer. Jean was more than up to the task of finding just the right person who would appreciate the history and special qualities of the property. Starting with pre-listing prep, she and Heather assisted in staging our home to its best advantage. The marketing materials, from photos to video, to advertising were all superb. She has a real affection for our local area and is an expert at not only selling homes but also conveying the beauty, history and uniqueness of the location. Jean brings to the table so many qualities that are essential for a real estate professional. Always quick to respond, she has the patience of a saint and is an even keel whenever the waters get a bit choppy. From pre-listing to past the closing she was there every step of the way. We would highly recommend her and her team to both sellers and buyers.

We bought a house in Westchester County (NY) with Jean - it was absolutely perfect for us. Jean was patient and wonderful. 6 months later, we learned that we had to relocate across the country. Jean had a buyer lined up within a day. She helped find a price that worked for both us and the buyer. She is extremely well connected, friendly, knowledgeable - I can't say enough good things. We are currently in the process of selling a house in another state, and we called Jean for advice. Merely because she is a good person, she gave us tons of incredible suggestions, going the extra mile to make our lives easy. If you are buying or selling, I can't recommend Jean enough.

Jean is an amazing agent, she is thoughtful, talented and experienced. We have used Jean to both buy and sell homes for us. I trust her immensely, and wouldn’t dream of using anyone else. In fact we tried another agent at one point and it only proved to us what we already knew. If you are thinking of buying or selling, Jean and her team can’t be beat.

Prior to listing our home for sale, my wife and I interviewed potential real estate brokers to determine which one would most likely help us to attain our objectives (which, among other things, included our strong desire to sell the home promptly without having to take any price reductions and to effectively establish an appropriate (i.e., not overstated) listing price). We are so happy we chose Jean Cameron-Smith to be our real estate broker. Before we met with Jean for the first time, she had done her homework and had extensive knowledge of our home and neighborhood. We quickly determined we could effectively work with Jean and she was always responsive to our needs. Before we listed the home for sale, Jean identified an experienced interior decorator who assisted us in understanding what was required to promptly sell our home (e.g., eliminating items that potential buyers would construe as clutter) and what features needed to be highlighted. Jean also provided guidance concerning a landscaping project she recommended be completed before listing our property for sale. Working effectively with Jean, we followed her guidance prior to listing our home and the result was that we received multiple offers within five days of listing the home for sale and sold the home at a price which exceeded our expectations. In summary, my wife and I believe Jean Cameron-Smith is a consummate real estate professional, who works hard to meet the needs and objectives of her clients, adds real value given her experience and knowledge of local markets and builds a strong rapport with her clients. We would certainly select Jean Cameron-Smith to be our real estate agent if the opportunity presented itself in the future.

Jean is such a pleasure to work with. She understands what you're looking for and partners with you to find your dream property. She was super proactive with finding our home and we couldn't have asked for more in a realtor. She's not afraid to take you outside your comfort zone, and will always have your back throughout the entire home buying experience.

I work in commercial real estate and I regularly work with brokers/realtors. What initially attracted me to Jean and her team was the fact that her track record details the listings and the sales price of her past transactions. Such transparency is very rare, and her honest and thorough assessment of value was (mostly) welcome. Too often realtors over-promise to win clients, which leads to a very high listing price that has a disproportionately negative impact on the final sales price-Jean will not let you fall into that trap.

I can't express enough how great Jean was throughout our home buying experience. When my husband and I made the decision to move from the city to Northern Westchester we had no idea where to start so we saw a couple of places but hadn't connected with a broker yet. The day we met Jean I knew the process was going to improve. She showed us several homes for weeks, always answered our questions and helped us narrow down the town we felt was right for us. A month after we began our search we completely changed our goal, to find a cute home near a town center versus several acres outside the town and she was happy to switch up the search with us. Leaving the city can be daunting but she helped us from start to finish, all the way through closing. She is a breath of fresh air and I truly enjoyed our experience with her, I couldn't recommend her enough.

Jean is a consummate real estate professional. She is considerate and personable, and treats her clients like friends (directly - not through and associate). Not only does she understand the market and real estate but she also understands the characteristics of different homes and construction as well as operating expenses. After starting a home search 2 years ago, the search got unexpectedly delayed for 18 months. Jean stayed in contact during the delay and kept me informed with market conditions and available properties. Jean immediately engaged when the search renewed and, even with evolving requirements, helped find and close on a new home that met the requirements and exceeded my expectations.

We found Jean by a friend's recommendation, and she was terrific- absolutely accommodating, and worked within our parameters. From the first showing all the way past our closing she has been helpful beyond anything we could have imagined...even taking my wife to look at carpet samples several times. Her knowledge of the local real estate market and the area's amenities is thorough, and she directed us to secondary sources that were also immensely helpful. We recommend her highly.

Jean was an exceptional realtor in providing me with attention in selling my home. It was an unusual property and she did her homework in listing at a price that was beneficial to me as the seller and reasonable to a buyer. Plus she provided terrific personal service in staging the house and preparing it for market. The house was listed contracted and closed in 4 months. She was supportive and answered any questions I had for the sale.

Jean was my 4th agent in 5years. I tried selling with other reputable Real Estate agencies during a bad market. I was at my wits end when I met Jean. A friend recommended her and I was impressed with how quickly she responded with her Sales package. I was interviewing other agents meanwhile, they all kept rescheduling for one reason or another. She's the only one who heard my urgency. I worked with her in getting my house in shape and she started showing ASAP!. Without a sign located in front of my lawn btw, she sold my home in 2 1/2 months! She sold the History, the atmosphere, the spirit of Ossining and the Hudson Valley. She sold the Fragrance surrounding my home, my neighbors and community! And of course she sold a great house. It was a great experience even with all the hiccups! I recommend you get your house inspected before selling! Jean was a trooper through all of the inspections even tempered, while my feathers were ruffled! She stood strong and had my back! Love Jean and would recommend her in a heart beat!
