Sonya Smithing and Blake Smithing - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Working with Blake and Sonya was the best experience we’ve had with realtors.

Not only did Blake find homes to show us in our price range with our wish list requirements, he was very open to showing us houses we located on internet sites as well. Blake was upfront and honest about properties we viewed, pointing out what he knew would be concerns for us. Anytime we had questions or concerns Blake and Sonya quickly responded with answers and resolutions. Our home purchase was smooth and easy thanks to the Smithing Group and we were able to close on time. Even after the sale, we were able to call on Blake for help when an HVAC technician we had called out to clean our furnace and vents said we needed a new furnace. Blake contacted our original home inspector who had someone come out and verify the furnace was fine and working correctly. They even tested for CO emissions to be sure all was safe. Blake continues to check in with us to be sure all is going well with the home we bought. Working with them is like working with family, you couldn’t ask for a more professional team.

The Smithing Group is the absolute best!

Not only did they help us find a perfect home, but we had a lot of fun doing it. We had specific needs: Close to the college campus, strict price range, etc. They helped us find all of these things. They knew which areas of the city were safer and also helped us find somewhere that was accessible to public transportation. They always responded to us in a matter of hours, often minutes!They are very punctual and helped us with all of the paperwork, making everything very clear. The Smithing group is professional, honest, and just overall great people. We will definitely be using them in the future!

The Smithing group was excellent even when the construction of hour home went well beyond the promised dates, they went to bat for us and made sure we were taken care and compensated, will most definitely refer them to anyone looking to buy a home.

Steven M.

Could not have imagined an easier person to work with.

Was always willing to take my call and answer any questions that I had. We were looking for something smaller that would not be a permanent fix and within hours they had multiple places for us to choose from. They found exactly what I was looking for.

Tanner H.

We fortunately hooked up with Sonya 14 years ago as our buying agent when we moved to Ogden with my base transfer to Hill AFB.

She was as pleasant and professional as humanly possible at that time and kept in touch with us on an ongoing basis. When we suddenly up and decided to leave the state, there was no doubt who we would ask to be our selling agent. There is NOTHING bad we can say about her. We feel we’ve made a dear friend in Sonya and will miss not being nearby.

Ken and Cheryl R.

Blake and Sonya are amazing!

Our house was under contract within 3 days- I was worried we wouldn’t find a place but Blake found and got us into our dream home. They were always going above and beyond and were there every step of the way.

Kylee F.

Sonya and Blake worked together to quickly sell my fathers home after he passed away and helped make a difficult time a bit easier.

The best people out there in real estate!

They work hard to make sure you get everything you need and are looking for in a house as well as in selling a house. Very helpful and great to work with. Always professional and available.

Braden Mitchel

My wife and I worked with Blake and Sonya to help us purchase our first home.

Unfortunately our process took us quite a bit longer than most. Blake and Sonya couldn’t have been more patient and helpful. We looked at our first home in Sept. of 2014 and didn’t end up purchasing until July 2015. We never heard them complain and anytime we found a house or needed additional help or advice, they were also there, prompt and ready. Poor Blake probably showed us 20+ homes before we found the perfect one. When it came to negotiating, he helped us get below our targeted budget and overall, we couldnt have asked for better agents to represent us. In future purchases, we will be going right back to the Smithing Group for our new homes. Fa’afetai Lava!

Spud and Wendy T.

The Smithing Group was perfect in identifying what homes would suit our needs with their knowledge of the area.

Sonya really listened and put forth exceptional effort in every step of the process. We had a couple challenges in the process along the way and I was forced to complete the process remotely, rather than face to face, but with their professionalism and follow-through we were able to buy the home of our dreams. We would highly recommend them to friends definitely as the right team for the job!

Ken and Lilian J.

Working with the smithing group was phenomanol, Sonya was always very willing and eager to help us in any way she could!

She wasn’t pushy and was very understanding to our wants and needs! I recommend them to everyone I know!!!! I actually cried the day that we got our keys because I was going to miss her!

Hayley B.

It is difficult to imagine working with a more helpful, knowledgeable, or professional team of realtors – Blake and Sonya are as good as it gets.

They were constantly available to answer any questions or resolve any concerns during the process of selling our home. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you choose to work with anyone other than the Smithing Group.

Jason Hirschi

When we decided to sell our home, many family members and friends warned us that realtors would just take a huge commission and do nothing to earn it.

This is NOT true of Sonya and Blake Smithing! They are what everyone SHOULD have in a realtor: they are knowledgeable, helpful, not pushy at all, respond quickly to all texts, calls and e-mails, and best of all, they are kind and professional. Every interaction we had with them was perfect, from beginning to end. After they sold our home, we were so pleased with how they handled everything that we had them help us find our new home. We recommend Sonya and Blake to everyone we know — they are the real deal! We can’t say enough about how positive this experience was for us. They were nothing short of AMAZING!!!!!

Kalen S.

Sonya, and now her son, have helped me on several property purchases.

I have worked with her from 2001 to 2015. Masterful, expert, incredibly kind, attentive, VERY RESPONSIVE. I don’t have the vocabulary to express how wonderful these two people are. Sonya understands how to interact with you to meet your particular wants/needs/style. You are different than someone else, and Sonya tailors her response to meet your needs, not demanding the other way around. I cannot recommend her enough.

Eric and Kathy H.

It was so easy working with this real estate group.

They were very flexible and accommodating! I never felt rushed or pressured into anything. This was our first time buying a home and Blake made sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently. We got a great house in our budget. It had everything we were looking for and more. He showed us some really great options to choose from and we are so excited about our new home. This was such a fun experience and I will definitely be recommending him to anyone that asks. Thanks, Blake for the wonderful service and experience!

Gregg F.

When I first started looking at houses to buy I didn’t even know where to begin, or what to look for.

So I got in contact with Blake and Sonya smithing. From day one they sat me down and explained everything in detail about the process and what I needed to do. They asked me questions and answered any that I had. They were very informative and knew what they were talking about. They were very confident and kept my needs and wants above all else. Both Blake and Sonya have extensive knowledge about the housing market and made sure that nothing was missed or looked over. They answered all of my many calls, or returned my call shortly after. I would definitely recommend the smithing group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Blake and Sonya were awesome.

They were up late with us on weekends trying to seal the deal for us. They made the selling and buying process smooth and seamless. Thanks so much!!!

Chris Abbott

Blake told us what to do to get our house prepared for our showing, and he brought us a full price offer the first day it showed!

Blake and Sonya negotiated with our buyers to let us stay for 2 weeks after closing, so that we didn’t have to move twice, which gave the sellers of our new house time to get their move in order as well. I definitely recommend working with The Smithing Group. It was a fantastic experience for my family.

Dennis Bowden

We were tough customers.

Our search area spanned farther than most. Our realtors Blake and Sonya understood that we were trying to find the perfect house for our family and provided service above and beyond. We had a budget to stay within and wanted to make the most of our investment. By pulling comparables and weighing out the value of square footage and the quality of the homes they were able to provide us comfort in knowing when there was a good deal. Their experience negotiating also provided us with the ability to move in sooner than expected, to have some repair issues remedied, and have the seller provide more value in the sale by assisting with closing costs and providing us with appliances of concern due to the cost such as front loading washer and dryer to remain with the house due to a washroom built for it’s accommodation. I would highly recommend the Smithing Group.

John and Shevon C.

My experience working with Sonya and Blake was great!

They were very patient knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. They answered every single one of our questions and went above and beyond to make this search easy and enjoyable which allowed us to find our dream house! Even now that we’re all moved in settled in they still check up on us, that is something we truly appreciate. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Alba R.

Sonya Smithing and her son Blake recently sold my property in Clinton.

My house had been on the market a while and we had not been able to move it. They took over on a short timeline (I was about to give up and try to rent it out) and they had my home marketed, shown and offers received immediately and it was closed in a matter of weeks. They were VERY responsive to any inquiries I made and were very knowledgable about the entire process. I am very grateful I met them and will not hesitate to come to them again when I need real estate help.

Mark L.

We worked with Blake and Sonya to sell our home early this year.

This is the first home my wife and I have sold. Blake was very responsive and patient to our questions. Blake helped us through the process and helped with the difficult decisions that you make when selling a home. We enjoyed the service they provided and are thankful for the experience and expertise they brought. Have already recommend Blake and Sonya to a couple of friends looking to move.

Jedd Cherry

Both Sonya and Blake were a joy to work with from the very beginning.

They became our friends while maintaining a very professional relationship. They where always able to answer any of our question and satisfy any concerns we had throughout the process of purchasing our home. We would not hesitate to highly recommend them to any of our family or friends.

Jeff and Susan C.

Sonya and Blake are everything you could want in your realtor.

They are very professional and personable. We were very grateful for how quick they were at getting back to us on any questions or concerns that we had throughout the looking and buying process. They worked their tails off to help us find our dream home and we couldn’t have been happier. They treated us like family and looked out for our well being above all throughout the entire experience. i know that they have a lot of clients, but they always made us feel like we were their only one or most important. They were so helpful to us, I can’t imagine how difficult it would have been without them. I highly recommend them, they will go above and beyond for you, as they did for us.

Taylor Puffer

We decided to list our home for sale by owner to save some money.

After a few weeks on the market and no showings, we decided to list with the Smithings after having a positive experience with them in the past. They sold our house in just a couple of days for way more than our original asking price. In the long run, the Smithing group got us way more money for our home. They understand true market value and are very pleasant to work with. We would recommend them to anyone!

Rory and Lori S.

Blake was incredibly helpful throughout our home buying process.

He was easy to get a hold of and was very good at communicating with us. He was knowledgeable of the properties and areas we were looking at. He was very patient with us while we decided on what home to buy and gave great suggestions. He listened well to our needs. I would highly suggest Smithing group to anyone. They were great!!

Breanna L.

I worked with Blake at Smithing Group and it was an amazing customer service experience.

My wife and I just bought our first home, and felt like the process was seamless and the least bit scary thanks to Blake! Blake was very professional and accommodating when it came to time schedules and looking at homes. He answered every question I could conceive within a matter of minutes of texting or calling (even if I called him at 7 at night!). He knew and understood the process so well, and had such great connections with lending partners and home warranty people that we had all the paper work and prerequisites completed an entire week before our closing deadlines, while saving us a bunch of money! I would recommend the Smithing Group for any of your real estate needs!

Jake Vanderhoof

Blake and Sonya were referred to me a few months ago.

I could overload this review with numerous accolades but suffice it to say, I’ll narrow it down to three attributes they embody as real estate agents- trustworthiness, intelligent and mindful. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication. The two of you make complicated real estate transactions seem simple, yet educational. Best of State vote in my book! Keep up the great work… Thanks again!!

Jeff Jerman

We would recommend the Smithing Group to anyone and everyone!

They were wonderful to work with and worked hard to meet our needs. We were able to get into a home a lot faster than we thought when working with them. They helped us find a great home in a wonderful area that is absolutely perfect for us!
