Chris Smith reviews

Client Reviews

Chris has helped me sell several homes and it has always been an excellent experience. I was living out-of-state during the whole process and Chris was very accommodating and took care of the entire process. He even acted as my power of attorney and closed on my behalf and signed as my representative. I would certainly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Zac Ziemanski
Chris is a wonderful Realtor. He was the seller's agent when we bought our Uptown home and we were so impressed with the way he "sold" the home to us that we used him when it was time to move on year's later. I will not hesitate to use him again if/when we move back to NOLA.
Chris Dyba
Chris takes care of everything from start to finish. I have used him twice so far, once to rent my property (which he did in ten days) and the second time to sell the property (which we closed in just over a month). I cannot say enough great things about Chris and his assistant Jerry. They really make a point of understanding your side and fighting tooth and nail to get you the deal you deserve. New Orleans is a tricky market, but Chris has managed to maneuver through it effortlessly and in a way that provides great results for his clients.
Marisa Escudero
My mother recommended Chris to me after she interviewed many agents. Chris met me at my home to list my property. The next day I went to his office where we sat down and looked over the many listing in the area to decide on the asking price. Chris and his staff were very pleasant and always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I am very pleased to say that on 10/3/13 this property was SOLD. I have 2 other properties listed with Chris and I am confident that there will be 2 additional closings soon.
Ernest Morris
Thanks so much for everything! I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and professionalism in getting my home sold. I know there were a few twists and turns, but you did a great job and really made this a pleasant experience. I look forward to working with you again sometime in the future and couldn’t be more pleased!
Joe Barrois
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris on a number of real estate transactions; from the sale of a commercial building, to the sale of a vacant lot, as well as apartment rentals. I can attest to his high degree of hard work, attention to detail, and result-driven orientation that he demonstrates for his clients. He is passionate about his work and relentless in the pursuit of meeting his clients’ needs. He is a top-tier real estate professional and I highly recommend him without hesitation. Thanks Chris for all of your effort and expertise!
Angela Freeman
Thank you for helping us find the perfect house to start our family, it was great working with you and we really appreciate the way you conducted yourself while doing business with us, I look forward to the upcoming weeks ahead and the moving process.
Chris Breaux
Chris is the best Realtor in New Orleans. Working with anyone else would be a disadvantage. He is very knowledgeable, very responsive, dedicated to getting the job done, and always actively working to accomplish your goals. Chris has expertise unmatched in New Orleans, from his experience, he gets deals done and is able to adapt immediately if the situation changes.
Aaron Hurwitz
Chris is strictly business; wham, bam, quickest, least paperwork, least negotiation and fastest escrow I ever closed.
B Thomason
I highly recommend Chris Smith and his dynamic “Trio”. Chris is a “get it done” guy, and when he tells you he is going to sell your house in a day…he means it! We had multiple offers on our house within hours of Chris listing it- and he helped guide us through the right decision. His team, Tama and Jerry help keep the process rolling along and in end makes for a smooth transaction.
Scott MacDonald
Chris is the BEST. He sold my home in a matter of hours. I have owned many homes all across the country, he has it all as a Realtor. His work for you is a complete package and an enjoyable experience. I have not worked with anyone who has his ideas and dedication. Make Chris your first and only choice.
Sally Marold
Chris did a great job for us. Very helpful in navigating the process. We knew what we wanted and we needed someone who knew what they were doing to help us get it. I highly recommend Chris. He also helped us sell our old house for a great price.
Carey Loshbaugh
I will recommend Chris to any friend or family member who is looking to buy or sell in New Orleans. He told me exactly how to make my New Orleans double sell and had an offer for me the day it went on the market. He was always available and straight forward about every part of the process. If you are reading this and considering him as your agent. CALL HIM=) You won’t find anyone better.
Bill Harris
Chris, Thank you so much for helping us find the house of our dreams!  You made our dreams a reality. Thanks for the beautiful Hurricane Glass and candle – it looks great on top of our mantle.  Thanks again for all your hard work!
Presley & Phillip Mariano
Chris impressed us immediately with his confidence, professionalism and expertise. He worked with us throughout the process. We especially appreciated his patience and his promptness in responding to our questions and concerns. He took care of the big issues and the small details and our home had a great offer before it ever went on the market. Closing went off without a hitch! Don’t worry about the market, the neighborhood, the condition of your property – worry about putting your future in the right hands. Choose Chris and you won’t be disappointed!
Susan & Ronald Cram
Chris was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to our next opportunity to work together. Chris is very knowledgeable and honest. He is also a great negotiator- we got an amazing deal on our sale, I could not have been happier! Give him a call- you will love working with him.
Tyler Robinson
Chris Smith will be my agent for every house I sell in New Orleans. He is the best agent I have ever worked with. Very professional!!!
Lee MacAlester
Hands down, Chris Smith is one of the most effective real estate agents in the greater New Orleans region. Not only was he fully engaged and highly responsive as my agent, he also worked incessantly to ensure the best deal would be accomplished in a short period of time. Chris Smith is simply and earnestly the very best in the real estate profession!
L. Blanca
Chris, We love our home! Many thanks for all of your help during the whole buying process. We’d love to have you by sometime to check out the changes and enjoy some holiday cheer. Happy Holidays from Kristen and me.
Matthew and Kristen Austin
Chris was responsive and readily available whenever we needed him through out the purchase. Together with his team, he ensured that the process proceeded smoothly. I would definitely enlist his help in future real estate transactions.
Justin & Jessica
What could have been a very tricky closing was made infinitely easier through the help of Chris Smith. He was knowledgeable & problem-solving about every issue that came up, and his level of professionalism was second to none. This will be my agent for every house I sell.
Jourdan Generes
Chris was knowledgeable and present every step of the way, even after the closing. You want him on your side!
V.J. Schwartz
First time selling a house and Chris and his team have set the bar high. We are 100% satisfied and will use him to purchase our next home.  Chris knows real estate.
H. Bazley
Chris Smith & his team were great and made the process of selling our home from 1200 miles away a breeze! It took a little while, but all we needed was ONE offer and he was able to close it.
Derek & Lauren
Chris did an amazing job and sold our home in Uptown New Orleans very quickly. Both he and his team were professional, punctual and extremely reliable. Our home provided some unusual situations, but every time I was apprehensive or concerned, Chris was very reassuring. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home. He is knowledgeable about real estate and a great negotiator. When multiple offers were on the table, he helped to steer us in right direction, and made a great deal. Thanks Chris!
James M.
We have worked with several other real estate agents and Chris Smith is the best one by far. He is professional and yet personable. Chris gave us great advice on how to make our home look more attractive for first impressions both through photos online (which were taken by a professional photographer by the way) and for those coming to see it for the first time. He was there to help us through the whole process and he ended up selling our house in ONE DAY! We would, will, and have recommended him to anyone who asks!

Rob Johnson
Best real estate agent in New Orleans hands down. Always responsive, prompt, knows the market, etc.
A. Duncan
We have been working with Chris Smith, both in the private residential & commercial sector. Chris, is very passionate both, as a buyer and seller’s agent. He will represent you well.. Chris is always ”in your corner”. When we think real estate…we think of Chris Smith.
Al Parra

Lauren Gilwee
Chris is very passionate about his profession and has great knowledge of the greater New Orleans area. My wife and I relocated from the Dallas area and Chris took extra time to help us find the right home for us. Chris was always just a phone call away and ready to answer any questions we had and very willing to handle anything we needed. We look forward to working with Chris again.
Martin Cantu
Mr. Smith, Just writing to thank you again. I am so impressed by your work ethic and ability. Of course I will always recommend you to anyone I know looking to purchase or sell real estate in Louisiana.
Clayton Neveu
There is NO BETTER agent on the planet! Chris is more than just a salesperson, he’s a Sales Professional. I would ONLY recommend him as the person you need to sell or buy your resident. I have used him before and could not have been more pleased and would only use him in the future. If there was a painting entitled “Real Estate Broker” I am certain his face would be on it!! AAAA+++++++++++
Mike Jones
Buying and holding at an opportune time, I have listed 4 unique and challenging properties with Chris that I thought would sit on the market for quite some time. With the latest property, as with all others, I received a call from Chris 3 days after discussing the sales with him, to let me know that he would be sending the offer letter over for approval within the hour. Chris is a true professional, self-driven, and very knowledgeable.  Chris offers a turn-key service to ensure the clients goals are met. Never worked with anyone better…
Gary Hess
He was wonderful and very knowledgeable. As an out of town seller Chris handled many things for me. I am very appreciative.
Michele Varrone
At age 66 I have bought and sold numerous properties. Without a doubt I have found Chris to be the most competent and positive Realtor I have ever done business with. He has great energy and did a wonderful job of walking me through the purchase of my house in New Orleans. I look forward to doing more business with him.
Chris was amazing to work with. He helped me and my family quickly find the best house for our needs, 7 months ago. Chris guided us through the home buying process, often providing us with reliable contacts for other services such as mortgage brokers, home inspectors, contractors and more. Chris always quickly answered the phone, responded to text and email, and called with the latest information. He made himself available to meet with us before work, at lunch, and after work. Chris’s knowledge of the market, other agents, and the purchasing process was evident and helped us make grate decisions. I look forward to using Chris’s services when I sell my current residence and purchase investment property.
Eric & Gaylynn
Chris has done an excellent job in selling my properties with a competent and professional skill set that sets him apart from other agents in the business. His depth of market knowledge is necessary in today’s competitive environment, and allows me to make informed decisions and calculate my investment strategies on his advice. I enjoy working with Chris and have no problem recommending anyone to consider him as your agent.
Vince Hayward
I have worked with Chris Smith for 10 years now. He has always been consistent in his professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done. I am truly grateful to work with him.
Gretchen Gott
I both bought and sold my investment property through Chris. He is an exceptional and dedicated agent whose marketing strategy helps move his listings with great speed. My property spent 48 hours on the market before it was under contract. He is there to answer any questions every step of the way and ensure a smooth process from contract to closing. I highly recommend Chris for any real estate needs.
Max Sold
From the date we signed the contract to close was 32 days. The property was professionally photographed and the online presentation was very impressive. Chris was very attentive and flexible in his communication. We spoke on the phone, as well as traded e-mails and text messages. My wife and I were honestly in disbelief when Chris informed us that we had a serious buyer within 3 weeks of listing. Within 2 weeks of this notification we have closed and deposited the proceeds from the sale. Very impressive in all respects and I would highly recommend Chris to represent family or friends with a real estate transaction.
M. Boyd
We worked with Chris to find a home in the Uptown New Orleans area.  We were impressed with Chris’ professionalism and very much appreciate his “above and beyond” personal attention, which included help in connecting us to his extensive local network of quality services both before and after closing.  Chris’ responsiveness to our requests, and that of his referrals; (inspectors, contractors, bankers and other service providers), was remarkable and we would not hesitate to encourage friends or colleagues to consider Chris representing them in the New Orleans real estate market.
David & Susan
Chris listens to what the buyer wants in a house and has wonderful recommendations. He knows the NO market and the city extremely well. He’s very personable, always available, and easy to work with. He made our purchase happen very quickly. His extensive contacts with other Realtors and bankers are a real plus. I highly recommend Chris!!
Pam Duncan
Chris Smith, is an exceptional real estate agent. He is full service all the way through every transaction. He is great to work with and has a great need to satisfy his clients through superb skill, marketing, and attention to detail. He sold two of our houses, and helped us make great purchases on two new homes as well. We highly recommend him to all of our friends who are buying or selling.
Tama Distler
Chris Smith is a consummate professional, and he delivers on his word. He is very knowledgeable and persistent. We give Chris our highest recommendation.
S.D. Jones
Absolutely down to business with a very charming style. He gets the job done right! What a pleasant experience.
Chris is a professional, hard-working Realtor, and knows how to read people better than anybody else I have seen. I could not have sold my condo without his expertise. I couldn’t recommend a better Realtor than Chris.
Lisa J. Swenson
Chris helped my wife and me sell and buy this past year. He made what is normally a painful experience a walk in the park. We would never use anyone other than Chris in the future.
Garrett McHugh
We were very impressed with Chris’s work selling our home of 32 years. He was totally involved and remained active throughout the sale of our home. We were successful only because of his tenacious salesmanship and the resources he brought to the table.  We strongly recommended Chris Smith!
Dr. & Mrs. Weiner
Chris has that rare ability you find in a hard working Realtor. I was impressed with his work before I met him and now even more, after having him list and sell my home in just days. I will always recommend Chris as a Realtor.
Father Ellis
I have known Chris for several years, personally and professionally. He is excellent at communication and follow-through as a real estate agent. He is always accessible by cell, text or email. Again, he has incredible follow-through and always gets the deal closed. Chris is totally honest and is always straight forward. Not only have I purchased my own home with him, but also multi-family and single family income properties, and most recently, my office condo. I would highly recommend him.
Tim Fields
Chris was OUTSTANDING throughout the process; my house was under contract within 2 weeks of going on the market which is a testament to his strategic and aggressive marketing effort. More importantly, Chris was top-notch throughout the necessary steps to get to closing. He was responsive, available at all times and went above and beyond to get my house sold. His depth of experience and excellent communication skills make him an excellent choice, either as a buyer or a seller. I enthusiastically recommend Chris.
Travis Goff
Not only did Chris find me a house that far surpassed my expectations, but he made the process easy and pleasurable. As a nervous first-time buyer I didn’t know what I wanted and certainly had no idea how to go about getting it. Chris guided me through the process from start to finish – he proactively suggested properties, was incredibly knowledgeable about neighborhoods, and knew how to keep the process moving. Chris is incredibly detail oriented which made every stage easy. He was never pushy and, the entire time, I knew 100% that he wanted me to be happy and confident in my purchase. At the end of the day, it’s clear that Chris has earned his reputation as the best in the business.
Craig Riesburg
I can’t recommend Chris Smith highly enough. He helped us through the buying process from the beginning of when we started to raise money, and was an invaluable resource throughout. Informative, available, knowledgeable, accommodating, honest, funny, you name it. He set us up with great contacts, helped us get the most out of our inspection, all that great stuff that put our minds at ease going through our first home purchase. Made everything ten times easier. Thanks Chris!
Curtis Laub
Chris and his associates worked tirelessly to help us find the right vacation/second home in the New Orleans Warehouse District / CBD. We are very particular buyers, one might say demanding, and Chris patiently showed us thirty (30) some properties. Despite the fact we were almost ready to give up at one point, Chris never did. Chris really focused in on what we were looking for and we ultimately found the perfect property to suit our needs and Chris was there with us right through the sale closing. Through the process of finding our fabulous condo it was clearly evident that Chris knows the New Orleans market extraordinarily well and we would heartily recommend him to anybody looking for housing in the New Orleans area.
Diane Petit & David Bjerknes
We want to thank you for everything! I don’t think we could have made a better decision on a Realtor, you were the perfect fit for us and we really appreciate all of the time and effort you put forth to find us our perfect house. You were an absolute pleasure to work with and made it so easy for us to ask questions (I know we had a ton)! We know you’re not into that whole social media thing but we will definitely make sure to recommend you whenever we come across anyone looking to buy/sell a house; and since we found you though Google searching we will also make sure to recommend you on all of those sites we originally found you on plus a few others! Also our house gift is gorgeous! We love it and think it will look great on our mantle! We are sad that we wont get to see you every week but look forward to the future when you can guide us through the process of selling our home! Thanks again for everything!
Eric & Gaylynn
We placed a tremendous amount of trust and responsibility in you and you delivered without any issues what so ever.  In short, you were GREAT at what you did to sell our home and ensured that everything went exceptionally smooth from beginning to end.  We are very grateful to you for what you have done to help us.  This property as you know was our “home” for 25 years and we could not have hoped for a smoother transaction than what we had. All of our sincerest gratitude!!
Dr. J. B. Briggs
I just wanted to say “Thank You” again for all of your help selling our house.  Things went so smoothly and I can’t get over how quickly we were able to sell the house.
Heather & Todd Royer
Chris Smith has acted as my agent in multiple purchases, sales, and rentals. He has a true understanding of the market and is a tenacious advocate for his clients. I’ve referred him to numerous friends and associates and they have been extremely delighted with their experiences and outcomes.
Dan Swope
Chris is the type of agent/partner who helps you to determine what it is that you are really looking for in a purchase. He is masterful at finding the hidden gems, and giving honest and credible feedback. He is patient, considerate and is genuinely involved in your decision … there with me through every step …..a delight to work with!
Dayna English
He’s very professional and always available for questions or help to either buy or sell a home. Very knowledgeable about the market and properties in the city. He made sure our house was sold quickly and got us into our new home just as quickly. I have no trouble recommending him to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Chris works tirelessly for his clients and always has their best interests at heart. He is there for you 24 /7. Chris sold our home, helped us find a rental, and then helped us buy a home one year later. Should there come a time when we would sell our current home, we will undoubtedly call on him again.  In addition to his professionalism, knowledge and skills, he will make you smile!
Kim Hynes
As a first time home buyer, I could not have dreamed of working with a better agent than Chris Smith. New to the process, he took the time to explain every step to me, answer every email, and take me to every house that I wanted to see…until we found the one!  I would recommend him to any future buyers, and definitely plan to use him when I decide to sell my house.
Melissa Young
Chris Smith is the real deal. I have dealt with Chris on two separate occasions in dealing with real estate in Uptown New Orleans and there is not a better agent in the industry. One of the main things we loved about Chris was his ability to recognize and acknowledge the neighborhoods of our target area. Anything from value of property, security and safety of neighborhoods, proximity to schools, and the general history of Uptown New Orleans and its neighborhoods…Chris knows it all. He was always prompt to our appointments and always came to the table with our best interests as his first priority. He was straight-forward and was never afraid to tell you what he liked and didn’t like about a potential buy. The guy knows everyone there is to know in the industry. Whether it be fellow agents, to respectable lenders, to trust-worthy contractors, Chris genuinely looks out for his clients. I have recommended Chris to several of my closest friends and they have come back with the same opinion.  I will be using Chris Smith as my future agent for as long as I reside in New Orleans.
Lawrence Crockett
We were referred to Chris by our mortgage broker after another real estate agent had recommended that we “wait a few years” before selling. Chris came to our house and immediately gave us hope that we could sell the house. He gave us meaningful advice on how best to stage the house for showing. When you hire Chris as your agent, you also get the benefit of someone with a very keen eye for interior design. Chris was also instrumental in recommending improvements– specifically, that those were most likely to increase the house’s potential to sell (He also put us in touch with some excellent contractors.). As first-time home sellers, we were very fortunate to have Chris’ advice. He was very hands-on and kept in touch with us, calling us immediately after each showing to let us know how it went. Chris’ instinct on pricing the house was right on; we received numerous showings, and (in a rough market for sellers) we ended up selling the house for close to what he had told us we were likely to receive. Chris also helped us purchase our new home. The process ran very smoothly, and he gave us good advice on the offer and items to address in inspection. Chris’ good working relationship with the seller’s agent was also a huge plus, in my estimation. I highly recommend Chris to both buyers and sellers.
Tomas Watson
Thanks so much for everything! I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and professionalism in getting my home sold. I know there were a few twists and turns, but you did a great job and really made this a pleasant experience. I look forward to working with you again sometime in the future and couldn’t be more pleased!
Joe Barrois
Chris, We so appreciate all of your kindness & patience through the entire sale process & closing of our home.  It was a true JOY working with you and getting to know you personally.  We sincerely LOVE our new home and have you to thank for it!
Bianca, Dr. Turner Lewis III & Huntley
In February I finally made the decision to buy a house, and thank god I found Chris.  I was at work telling a co-worker about the woes of trying to find a competent agent and so my co-worker gave me Chris’ name.  So I contacted Chris at 8:30 P.M. via his website, not really thinking he would respond so quickly or at all, and well I was so wrong.  Chris called me promptly at 8:30 A.M. the next morning and was just a ray of sunshine the minute I started talking to him, which got me excited about actually looking at houses.  I was VERY fortunate to have Chris because as a single woman and first-time home buyer, I needed someone with Chris’ expertise to guide me through the process.  This sale was EXTREMELY fast… just about 30 days from start to finish.  We had some road blocks, but with Chris as my guide I had no worries from his end!  I was not expecting the level of responsiveness I received from Chris.  He was ALWAYS available and made sure tasks were done right away.  I even broke down at one point at the early hour of 6:30 A.M. and Chris calmed me down.  He never had a negative word to say, in fact he would always say “Don’t worry, it will all work out.”  and it did all work out!  Chris is truly amazing at his profession.  He is one of the busiest people I have ever met, but he makes his clients feel as though they are the only client that he has… and that was absolutely wonderful for someone who has never owned a home and is buying a home all by themselves.  I will forever refer people to Chris.. the bottom line is… he is AMAZING!
Emily Neltnor
I was referred to Chris by another agent to sale my home at 3012 – 14 Laurel St. My previous experience with other agents was less than desired.  From the first moment that he took on my listing, he “made things happen” for me.  My home on Laurel Street was I am sure one of his tougher and more challenging homes to sell; but he rose to the challenge and was successful where others had not been able to do so.  I am convinced that since he was able to sell my home on Laurel Street, he can certainly sell anyone else’s property.  I did not by any stretch, give him “an easy sale”  Thank you Chris for always looking out for my best interest  from beginning to end!  I am extremely thankful to you for having helped me to sell my property.
Bob Slade
THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your hard work and help throughout the home buying process.  You were absolutely wonderful to work with and you have made the entire process a piece of cake.  We are grateful to have chosen you as our Realtor and the experience of working with you was first class.  We look forward to a long standing friendship and working relationship with you!
Dr. Dennis Peacock & Brandon Cheramie
Half a dozen times a day when I’m in town ( as I am now) and often when I’m not, I think,  “I’ve got to thank Chris for contributing so much to our lives by helping us get this house.”  But if I leave a message on your phone you’ll think “Eh, he’s drunk dialing.”  And if I text you, you’ll think, “Gawd, now he’s drunk texting!”  But it ain’t so.  I’m sober as a judge and I really do think of you often with affection and great gratitude.  What an amazing place this is.  How lucky we are to be here. And what a wonderful person you are.
Bernard Lechowick
Your representation and assistance with our condo purchase was incomparably top notch.  I am a veteran of many real estate deals, both residential and commercial, and I have to say that you made this one an absolute delight.  Even with the inevitable hiccups, you maintained your cool professional demeanor, and offered us help above and beyond what most agents could.  Not only do you know the New Orleans market very well, you offer community resources that will make our project much smoother than anticipated.   When Andrea and I are ready to make additional purchases, you will be our #1 choice.  Thanks again.
Mike Skehan
We  recently moved back to New Orleans after more than a decade away.  One of the first decisions we made was to hire Chris Smith as our Realtor.  This decision proved to be the best one we could have made!  Chris is a tireless worker who provides his clients with quality experience, the utmost professionalism and most importantly he utilizes his strong relationships in the community to deliver positive results.  He understands that purchasing a home is a huge life-changing decision and he did everything in his power to help and make it a smooth one.  Not for a moment did we feel like he was pushy or uncaring and based on our past experiences – Chris was definitely a breath of fresh air.  He can give you the best NOLA experience – and always with a touch of Lagniappe!! We very much look forward to working with Chris again in the future – and whole heartily recommend him to anyone who is lucky enough to hire him!
Gaby & Amir Barnetzer
The reason I enjoy working with Chris Smith is that of all the Realtors I have worked with (and there have been around a dozen in my lifetime), he is the most businesslike, reliable and straightforward.  I know when he says that he is going to do something it is going to happen, on time and as expected.  Communication is prompt, paperwork detail is complete and accurate, and follow through on the deliverables is timely – all in all, a rare combination in real estate, or in any business for that matter.  He does a great job!
Harvey Wier
I just wanted to send a note to say thanks again for helping me find the Orange Street condo.  I am finally getting settled and I love it so far.  The area is great and the condo is just what I was looking for. I will keep you in mind if I ever need any real estate assistance in the future for myself or anyone I know.  You provided very professional services and watched out for things that a first home buyer should keep in mind.
Patrick Hollon
When I showed the house to my wife, I knew it was exactly what we had been praying for.  With our first child on the way, it was imperative that we find a house we love, that would allow us to grow and not be a burden financially or worry us with repair and contracting stress.  Chris responded to our email within twenty four hours and then called to confirm our appointment to view the home.  When we walked through, and this may sound corny, but I could see myself playing with my son, studying, clowning with my wife, etc.  Chris guided us through every part of the process.  He told us what to expect, what to say, and even gave us tips on how to pay off your mortgage early.  His integrity and sincerity was evident every step of the way.  As a first time homeowner, it is important to be able to feel comfortable with your Realtor.  In the short weeks that we were allowed to work with Chris, he created a professional confidence with his style and ethics that increased with every appointment.  When we buy again, and we will, we will work with Chris Smith.  We have referred him to several people at church, work and with our personal friends. Thank you Chris.
Mr. & Mrs. Robert McGriff
Chris is Amazing!  Let me explain why I’m the perfect one to brag about Chris.  Almost a year ago, I listed my house with a very pleasant couple; however, I was out of town (living in Texas) and couldn’t be there to manage everything.  Obviously, neither could my “agents”.  Once I returned to NOLA, I hired another one.  She was nice enough too.  She let people run through the house, exploring everything, without watching them at all.  I came home on two separate occasions and the air conditioner had been taken apart, literally.  When I asked what had happened, she had “no idea.”  So, I had go to sleep with no A/C in the middle of August and pay for someone to come out and fix it!  Finally after wasting my time with two other useless agents, I used the one agent that I should have listed with in the first place, Chris Smith.  By this time, I had moved to Baton Rouge.  But it didn’t matter, because Chris took care of everything.  In less than two months, Chris had not only found a suitable buyer, but we closed on it.  So if you are ever hesitant as to whom to choose, don’t be.  Chris is a completely different type of agent.  He’s proactive, engaging and trustworthy.  He gets results.  Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way.  But three is a charm, and Chris most definitely was for me.  If you’re planning on putting your house up on the market, or you’re looking to purchase a new home, only trust a professional,  ONLY TRUST CHRIS SMITH.

Through an advertisement that I saw about Chris Smith in the New Orleans Times Picayune, I contacted Chris to meet with me regarding the sale of my home.  I immediately felt comfortable with Chris and felt certain that he would be the best person for the job.  ALL of my hopes and expectations were a reality, Chris sold my home within a very short time and was able to get FULL PRICE for my property.  He was ALWAYS AVAILABLE whenever I called.  And I did call often, as it had been quite a while since I had bought or sold any property.  Chris was always patient and answered all of my questions and concerns.  I would highly recommend Chris Smith to anyone that has any real estate needs in New Orleans.  He has a genuine passion for what he does and always puts his clients needs first!

Considering all the horror stories we had heard about the misery of buying your first home, we were prepared for the absolute worst.  Fortunately, a friend introduced us to Chris Smith.  One of the things that impressed us most is that after listening to our wants, needs, desired location and preferred price range, Chris demonstrated his unrivaled ability to find us the home that best fit our ideal within the limits we imposed.   The homes he showed us proved just how intuitively he understood what was really important to us in buying a home for our growing family.  Despite our fears, the entire closing process was truly painless due to Chris’s insight, dedication and professionalism.  It was only afterwards that we learned, from a third party, how much work behind the scenes Chris had done to bring the transaction to closing once we made the decision to buy.  We would never consider using anyone else to shepherd us through a property sale, whether buying or selling.
Devin & Jennifer Morris
I listed my home on Laurel Street with Chris Smith and he sold it in only five days.  Over the past several years, I had come to know about Chris from seeing so many of his other listings and advertisements all over town.  His slogan of  “Dedicated Service and Consistent Results” is absolutely accurate.  The services that I received from him were first class and the REAL RESULTS speak for themselves.  I could not have sold my home and gotten the price that I received without him.  I am sincerely a grateful and happy client of Chris Smith.
Jim Addison
My wife and I relocated to Nevada and were faced with the overwhelming challenge of selling our home in New Orleans.  There is absolutely no way that we could have done this without Chris Smith’s expertise, professionalism and dedication.  Within less than two weeks we had our home under contract and within the dates specified in our purchase agreement we had a closed sale.  We are without a doubt, a believer in Chris Smith and his ability to make the sale happen.  Chris saw through to every single detail and aspect of our sale.  He is simply put, the VERY BEST at what he does.  For New Orleans Real Estate, he really is the best in the business!
Mr. & Mrs. Jason Schwehm
Chris Smith is a true professional.   We met with two other agents when we were ready to sell and our choice was easy.  We chose Chris who exceeded our expectations on many levels; his salesmanship, his fortitude, and his professionalism.  He sold our house in record-breaking time.  In addition, Chris assisted us in finding tenants for our other property.  Chris is extremely reliable, very accessible, and you can count on him to follow-up on every task.  We strongly recommend Chris Smith for your real estate needs.
Jonathan & Jennifer Schwehm
Chris Smith has assisted me in selling my home and purchasing a home.  Through both of these transactions, Chris was always accessible, timely and prompt, and very professional.  He was extremely reliable and knowledgeable and I really appreciated his honesty.  I would recommend anyone looking to rent, sell, or purchase a home to hire Chris Smith, he really helped me.
Janene Baham
Chris Smith devoted an extraordinary amount of time and energy to helping me find the perfect home after Hurricane Katrina destroyed my Lakeview home. I would recommend his services to anyone in the New Orleans area.
Susan Chiravella
A friend of mine referred me to Chris Smith to list my property for sale.  Chris listed my property for sale and within only six hours he brought me a FULL PRICE offer and the property closed within three weeks.  I have since used Chris for ALL of my real estate needs and would not consider using anyone else!!  He is truly the BEST at what he does.
Richie Lewis
I would highly recommend Chris Smith, he is a wonderful real estate agent.  He really cares about his clients and strives to complete the deal whether you are selling or buying.  Chris is great to work with and wants his clients to be satisfied.  He sold our house, then sold my son and daughter-in-law a house!  We want to keep him in our family!
Margie Breeden
Chris was instrumental in my family’s relocation to New Orleans.  Simply put, we couldn’t have done it without him.  His attention to detail made all the difference.
Mike Smith
Chris Smith is our Realtor for life. He sold our first house within a week after it had been sitting on the market for a year with another agent. He sold a second house for us despite the adversities of Hurricane Katrina.  He has found two properties for us that have been the perfect fit. Chris is a highly motivated agent who excels as a closer.  He also excels at follow up after a contract is accepted. We highly recommend Chris.
Mag and Ken Bickford
I have bought and sold several homes over the past thirty years, but my experience with Chris Smith has been unique.  His excellent marketing skills and his open, friendly, and courteous manners led to the quick sale of my Uptown home.  Further, he was able to easily identify which available homes in the Garden District would be appropriate for my current needs and he assisted me through the process of negotiations, inspection, and closing with professionalism and careful attention to every detail of the transaction.  Needless to say, I would retain Chris as my Real Estate Agent for any further purchase or sale of property in New Orleans.
Lisa Brener
Chris was very patient with me, and coached me throughout the entire home buying process. I am a young professional who was very unaware of the real-estate market (home ownership costs, investment strategies, etc.), but thanks to Chris and his team, I was able to get the home that I wanted! He and his team were very accommodating; they were organized during the closing process, and had a strong network of banking and insurance professionals that made my life much easier. On several occasions, he showed me properties on very short notice. I strongly recommend working with Chris, and would definitely consider doing so again.
Ben Pejsach
My husband and I just recently sold our home, and we highly recommend Chris Smith. He is very professional, prompt, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with and be around. He will take the time to meet with you and review several listings and comps in the area to help you make the best decision about pricing and selling your home. We also like the fact that Chris does not use a lock box and is at every appointment and showing. He really sells your home, and his personal attention is A+
Eva Dyba
Chris really knows his stuff. Midway through my loan approval he caught something underwriting missed. They had listed the home as a condo when actually is was a townhouse. I couldn't believe how much trouble he saved us. We most likely would have gone past our 40 day mark with Escrow if not for him. He went above and beyond the call of duty by not only showing me a beautiful home, but helping me find a lender, and finally saving the entire deal. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone looking for a home in the area!
Melissa M.
Chris was the selling agent on my first real estate purchase in 2006. Since then, I have used him for all of my subsequent sales and purchases. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and extremely straight forward. I wouldn't list or purchase with any other Realtor.
Jenny Pelc
Chris helped us find our home in Uptown New Orleans and is the pinnacle of professionalism. He was communicative, organized, prompt and knowledgeable about the Orleans Parish market. He accommodated every request, took every phone call and answered every question seemingly at any time of day. He even took my call while he was vacationing at the beach on a Sunday. And if he doesn't have the answer right away he will go out of his way to get it for you immediately. Our experience with him is still paying dividends as he has not steered us wrong on any recommendation to date. Look no further for the best Real Estate professional in Nola.
Stacey & Allen Espinosa
I have had a fantastic and enlightened experience working with Chris. My property is an unusual one and he has done a stellar job. He has kept me well informed. As I am not well versed in real estate transactions, Chris has made all permanent details of the sales process understandable without overwhelming me. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who is interested in selling their property, he has presented only serious prospective buyers while entertain all interested parties. Chris is truly dedicated to his clients as well as his profession in general.
Jay Poggi
I have been a real estate broker in San Diego since 1975. Chris is the best of the best. His knowledge and work ethic are second to none. I have been relying on him to sell individually, a portfolio of houses left over after a failed investment program (brought down by the mortgage meltdown). Very professional, in depth understanding of the local market, combined with the highest integrity makes Chris a winner. I'm just sorry we can't clone him.
Jim Stewart
Chris is extremely knowledgeable of the market. He did an extensive review of the market prior to our meeting to property advise us as to where we should price our home. In addition, he hires very professional personnel to assist. Though we believe our home was beautiful, his photographer's photographs made us say "WOW". Chris's knowledge of the psychological aspects of the sales process is truly remarkable and the skills he possesses, we feel, were directly responsible for selling our home within 48 hours of listing. Chris is available, knowledgeable and professional. This is the third time we've used Chris and will most definitely use him again.
Eric Deroche
Chris Smith is a top-notch Realtor and consummate professional. He is very knowledgeable, hard-working, and relentless in his pursuit of meeting his clients' needs. Chris is extremely responsive and dedicated to his clients, demonstrates a passion for his work, and is results-driven. Immediately upon meeting Chris we were impressed with his confidence, professionalism, and expertise. We highly recommend Chris Smith without hesitation.
Jennifer & Chris Borrillo
Mr. Smith was very knowledgeable and gave us confidence in that the house would be sold in a timely fashion. Our contacts during the process left us feeling we contacted someone "right for the job."
William Moser
You couldn't ask for a better Realtor in the New Orleans area. Chris is very knowledgeable and has a work ethic that is great. He will not stop until you are satisfied. I personally recommend his services to anyone attempting to buy or sell a home. He will get the job done!
Walt Wilson
Katelyn and I want to thank you for all of your hard work with us. You are an outstanding Realtor and we will be recommending you to everyone we know that's in the area. Thank you so much for the home warranty also! We will definitely be able to use that. That was very nice of you to get for us. We are starting to get settled in the new house but will be a long process. We couldn't be happier with this house. This is perfect for us and all the neighbors seem very friendly that we have met so far. Again, thank you for everything you have done for us. Take care and we will be calling you down the road for the next sell. However, I think we will be staying here for a long time.
Matt and Katelyn Prejean
Chris did a great job helping my family sell one house and buy another. He's always responsive to phone calls and helpful to someone whose not an expert in realty. I would highly recommend Chris Smith.
Benjamin Epstein
From start to finish, it took Chris less than three weeks to rent my condo in the lower garden district. He was courteous, professional, honest with setting my expectations, watched out for my best interests, thorough and available in his communications, and just an overall fantastic guy. I honestly can't say enough good things about him. From the free professional photos, to the beautiful description, he really takes on your property like it were his own. He saw the beauty that I saw in my condo and made sure to let the world of renters out there know about it! Did I mention this all took less than THREE weeks in the dead of New Orleans summer (i.e. the worst season to try and rent out your place??) I'm honestly very surprised with the negative reviews. Both he and his assistant were available and friendly!
Marisa E.
We had a fab experience with Chris! We did everything remotely since we live in NJ, and everything went smoothly and sold in days with a quick closing, no issues.
Bob and Bridget Hobart
Chris provides all the expertise and detail needed without "hovering" over his clients. His advice is always well thought out, reasoned and conforms to the needs of the client. He will be our "go to" realtor for any future sales or purchases.
Michael & Shannon Pfeiffer
5 Stars is not enough how exceptional Chris Smith conducted himself during my home buying process. Prior to meeting Chris Smith, the entire process was cumbersome and a mess. With the help of Chris I was able to sell my home with a return on investment that exceeded my original figures. This happened because from Day 1 Chris looked out for my best interest unlike other Realtors. He was extremely helpful in answering any questions I threw at him and left me with a sense of security knowing I trusted the right agent to get the job done. Thumbs up to Chris Smith!
Tye R.
I recently moved to the area and worked with Chris to find a home. I had worked with him over the phone a couple weeks prior to meeting with him to discuss what I was looking for and to narrow down the search. When I flew down for a few days he wasted no time and showed me homes within my budget and specifications. He always answered my calls and was great company for the house hunting. I put him in a time crunch to show me a home in those days that fit but would also close soon so I could move down. He not only found me the perfect place but connected me with the right loan officer to close quickly. I personally had a great experience with him and I'd suggest calling him and finding out for yourself!
Dennis N.
Working with Mr. Chris Smith and his associates was a seamless and rewarding experience. Our questions were answered quickly and thoroughly. Mr. Smith is an outstanding expert in the real estate field who offered his guidance generously throughout our sale and closing. We would recommend Mr. Smith with enthusiasm.
Insely Art Gallery
I have been an investor and own a marketing company but in all my years as a professional I have never worked with anyone more thoughtful and thorough! The property I bought was less than a $100k but throughout the process I was treated like a million dollar client. I can not recommend Chris Smith more highly!!!
Lisa Lloyd
Putting my home on the market remotely from another city was not ideal, but Chris's knowledge of the New Orleans market and his ability to take care of the day to day duties of managing a property made it as seamless and effortless as possible for me. He not only brought clients onto property at their convenience, but aided in cleaning and maintenance that enabled closing to occur with ease. I recommend Chris for any property in the greater New Orleans area.
Matt Eskind
Chris Smith has helped me through two home purchases and one home sale, and I wouldn't use another realtor in New Orleans. The two home purchases went fairly smooth, and Chris helped us negotiate a terrific deal through some of the minor bumps in the road. The sale of our condo was less smooth, but without Chris, wouldn't have happened at all. Our condo was for sale for less than 3 days after listing before we received a full ask offer, but through inspection and lender issues, we hit a few snags. Chris' office staff suggested a different lender and expedited the process with them and we were able to close just days after our original closing date, when we thought for sure the entire deal would fall through!
Andy Wellbaum
Chris and his team are the best in the business! First time we met Chris was our listing appointment. He walked us step by step on the process to sell our home. After a few cosmetic changes to our home he brought us an offer 25 thousand over asking price. Our home was under contract 30 hours after being listed on the market! Words can't describe how awesome our experience was working with Chris! We will use him on any other real estate needs in the future. Not only was he my broker but now a close friend.
Brian and Celeste Pittman
We were very impressed with Chris Smith as our Realtor. My husband and I had only been married six months and this was our first major purchase together, we had a lot of questions and concerns and Chris was very patient with us as he answered all our questions and kept us up to date the entire process. Throughout the negotiations he was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!
J. LaFrance
Chris is a knowledgeable professional with years of local experience. He makes the process seamless and stress free. His communications are clear and timely. You can have confidence you are getting the best price for your home with the combination of his skills and integrity.
Sakari Morrison
Chris and his team are amazing ! He is dedicated to client service for renters, owners, and buyers. I highly recommend Chris Smith. Chris works tirelessly to ensure that my uptown condo in the Carrollton/University area is in top shape for renters. He suggests needed maintenance, cleaning, and painting projects, and arranges all of the services before new tenants move in !! Because of Chris, my condo has been in perfect shape for each new tenant on move-in day (4 so far over the years). He is always responsive to questions and requests. Chris always goes the extra mile to ensure the tenants are happy with their rental. As a rental-owner, I am so pleased to use Chris as my representative. He helps identify contractors, repair services, and gives excellent real estate advice. He has consistently found great tenants for my condo; it has never been unoccupied. The process is well coordinated and seamless. Bravo! As a buyer, I could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Chris Smith. He has extensive knowledge of the NOLA real estate market, including listings and trends. He asked questions to understand exactly what I was looking for, my price range, my intended use, and the types of neighborhoods that were of interest. He ensured that all of the properties I saw were in my price range and not out of my realistic reach. He spent countless hours sending listings to me that met my parameters, and time with me visiting all of the properties he had identified as potential purchases. Chris helped me find the perfect condo in one week!
