Actual Client Testimonials
"Troy Smith listed our home and made the process from beginning to end so quick and easy. Troy got to work right away and was very confident in the listing process. He is a man of integrity and professionalism. Our home went under contract and sold in the first weekend of the open house! He was available to us night or day, at any time to answer any questions and always made us feel comfortable and assured every step of the way. We developed a friendship with Troy and he is a great guy and someone you can truly trust with selling your home. He works hard for you and to get the job done. There would be no one else we would have listed our home with. Thank you for selling our home so quickly so we could begin our retirement in Arizona!"

Wonderful person, incredible agent
We met Troy at an open house for which he was a listing agent. His kindness and respectful nature stood out immediately as well as his knowledge of the current housing market. We decided to work with Troy that day and have been grateful for his help in finding us a home. He scheduled viewings immediately, drove with us to different areas of San Diego (Fallbrook to Escondido to Ramona in one day!) and was kind and friendly with our children. He took the time to understand our needs with empathy, was very responsive and touched base with me daily. Once we put in an offer, he was with us throughout the inspection, assessment and escrow. I'm sure we will be friends for many years to come as he sincerely shared in our joy of purchasing our first home. Thank you Troy!

Troy sold my home the first day it listed!
Troy had a terrific strategy to sell my home stress free and quickly. He explained how we should proceed and he delivered as promised. He was a joy to do business with, always upbeat and friendly. On the first day of listing and holding an open house we had multiple offers to choose from. He helped me pick the most solid one so I could close escrow within the timeframe I needed and move into my new place. He made selling my home a very happy experience.

In addition to being well experienced and very affable TROY is extremely hard-working. His ability to see the buyers vision and remember details that are important to the client is unparalleled. Our search had slowed down a bit with the market boom when troy called us about a house that had everything we were looking for and was priced extremely well. I think he remembered our “hit” list better than we did. He stayed with us throughout the entire process and afterwards. His attention to detail is impeccable. Day or night -and even when out of town!- he was available to answer questions and make sure all the details were taken care of. You just don’t find this kind of dedication anymore. If there were seven stars to give he would get them. Thanks for making our dream a reality Troy.

Troy was an excellent agent who helped us sell a house within a month when we tried to sell with another agent for over half a year with no success. In the beginning, I had low hopes of whether the house could be sold at all because of the prior agent, but when Troy stepped in, he changed the game completely. He won over our trust immediately with a detailed plan, great communication skills, and thorough knowledge of the market to make the sale happen.
Troy went above and beyond when he tried to prepare the house for the market. Since I live quite far away from where the listed house is, many times he helped us work on the property that is outside the scope of his work. When in escrow, there were several items that needed to be fixed, Troy was on top of all the requests and had us not worry about any of these contingencies. We are truly grateful for his help.
Troy also has great experience with the market and knows how to list a property to attract buyers. He has a great marketing team and presented the house in a high-end manner, even when we did not do any staging. His selling strategies attracted more buyers than I ever expected and secured few offers. We were thrilled to learn that we could sell the property with a price above our expectation.
Troy is very easy to work with. He maintained excellent communication throughout the whole sales process with texts and phone calls. He informed me every step of the way how things are going, and how he is handling them so that I am not worried about a single thing. He is also very personal and kind, I could almost say we became friends in the end.
I would recommend Troy to anyone who wants to sell or purchase properties. Top notch agents like Troy can help you eliminate worries, walk you through the complex sales process and reach your goals.

Troy has a very easy going manner that makes looking for a home less stressful. He knows the ins and out of the real estate market. He also worked as a developer so he has an extensive network of people in the construction trade that could assist with issues in selling or buying real estate. He has found our dream home and we are very pleased that we are listing our current house with him.
Review submitted by Dr Patrick Gonzales (seller/buyer) on 27 May 2021
Troy’s knowledge and experience will put money in your pocket, Troy Smith recently sold my 1.3 million dollar house. His experience made the sale easy, even with a difficult buyer, and a buyers agent who was lacking in experience and valuable knowledge of how the sales processed worked. Troy made the sale work by educating both the buyer and buyers agent. This not only made the sale successful but taught me the difference between a great agent and a poor agent.
"Troy is an excellent Realtor! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an absolute area expert to work with. He sold my luxury property in De Luz of Temecula for nearly $1.3 million. The buyer became very difficult at times to work with during the transaction, due to their agents lacking knowledge but Troy's leadership and teamwork where essential in getting the deal closed which I'm extremely grateful for. His knowledge and commitment are exceptional. He also helped me to purchase another property near by which was outstanding as well!"

Troy did a super job... took it upon himself to fix some issues with the property so the sale could move forward.

"Troy was very responsive and took time to explain everything to us. He put in a ton of time to find the properties we were looking for. He even got to know us so well that he found properties that perfectly fit what we wanted and set up viewings for us before we even noticed them. He really went above and beyond what we expected from our realtor."

My husbands and my experience when looking for a home was amazing thank you to Troy. We are first time home buyers and he made the process easy and answered all of our questions.

"We just recently closed on our forever home and it wouldn't have been possible without Troy Smith's expertise and experience. We were blown away at his responsiveness and willingness to go above and beyond to get us into our home. Troy and his team were just amazing!"
"Troy has worked with my family for over a decade and always produces first class results. He literally will go the extra mile for you, as when he hiked a mile on a dirt road to search for a parcel he was showing me. I ended up buying that parcel! Troy also has a real can-do attitude and spirit, which has helped my seals go through. Troy will make it happen."

"Troy helped us to get the house my wife and I both appreciate in spite of COVID19 crisis and many hurdles that came with it. He even referred an excellent direct lender who helped with the loan package in an impossibly brief time period, thus meeting the escrow deadline. Troy’s excellent knowledge and expertise were evident from the beginning to the closing of the escrow. Furthermore, as an agent representing both the seller and the buyer, he displayed deft negotiation skills which made the transaction possible."

Troy was amazing from start to finish and beyond. He always gave me amazing advice and insight to all the properties and was super accessible and always proactive at showing me properties and listings. He understood exactly what I was looking for and was extremely detailed. During walkthroughs on properties, Troy was very meticulous pointing things out that I should note good and bad. Giving me comfort in knowing I not only had an amazing realtor but someone who wasn't just trying to get me to buy a house but someone who wanted me to get a house I would be happy with. I would recommend Troy to everyone and anyone. An amazing guy you will be very happy with him and his level of service and dedication.
"On the first day Troy visited my home, he said, "If you follow my plan, I believe I can beak the current record for the neighborhood selling your home." I was skeptical because I have a one of the smaller homes in the neighborhood, however, I listened as he advised me on improvements that would make the biggest impact on the value of my home. He provided me with reputable contacts that resulted in quality product, service and very reasonable prices. Troy was with me every step of the way, checking in every few days and dropping by at least once a week to help me in any way he could. For the photo shoot, he gave me suggestions for staging each room that maximized the space and used camera angles that captured the openness of the floor plan. His marketing is extremely impressive and we really enjoyed watching our TV commercial. Troy's strategy and listing price not only covered our renovation investment by far, but by the time we sold, it was only one day on the market! We exceeded the last very similar sold home by $25,000 more! We were amazed because even those last sold in our neighborhood were very high prices! He did as he said he would and smashed the current record with our home! Troy has been extremely professional throughout the entire process. I strongly suggest if anyone is considering selling their home, that they contact Troy Smith!"

"I highly recommend Troy Smith as a real estate agent. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He makes the home buying process go very smoothly. He had my best interest in mind and was very easy to get a hold of. I will use him again on my next home. Thanks Troy! keep up the good work!"

"I can’t say enough good things about Troy. I have used Troy for a past purchase and sale. When I needed to move back to the Temecula area, I called Troy immediately. I told Troy the laundry lists of wants that my Fiancée wanted. Corner lot, view on a large lot, 2 story, 3 car garage, room for an RV on the side, 4 bedrooms, office, large open floor plan and the kicker it had to be brand new construction. About 72 hours later I was viewing the perfect home with Troy, not only did he meet all the wants he exceeded what we asked for. Troy listened to every detail and delivered exactly what we wanted. On top of all of that he negotiated a much better price than expected!! We closed on the house once construction was completed. I can’t thank Troy enough for finding our dream home. Thank you Troy for you dedication to our family."

"We recently had the pleasure of working with Troy. He was able to help us throughout the whole process of setting appts looking at different homes and giving insight on the potential of what you can do with the home. He went above and beyond when we thought we had to go back on the hunt again, and in the end he was able to secure a property for us that we loved. Troy has exceeded our expectations and is very knowledgeable in all areas from the beginning to the end of the sale, his vast experience in other areas help you make a more informed decision, I would highly recommend him to friends and family."

"Troy made the buying process easy. He was willing to accommodate our schedule to ensure we were able to look at properties. He had a great team of resources for us to use and he was easy to get a hold of. Through the whole process he kept us informed and we felt like he had our best interests in mind every step of the way. We would recommend Troy to our friends and family knowing he would take care of their buying and selling needs."

“Troy was excellent right from the start! He is very kind and simply a joy to work with. He was very attentive to our needs and wants and always put our goals first during the entire process with the highest level of honesty and integrity the whole way. He paid very close attention to every detail and was very knowledgeable about the current market, guiding us through a virtually perfect home sale transaction. He was even willing to put in extra effort when needed to ensure important deadlines were met and lock in an on time escrow close. We would highly recommend Troy!!”
Jason Criqui (seller)
"Troy was very helpful through the whole process of selling our house. He gave us great advice and worked with us to meet our goals. He gave us great information and did his research to best support our decisions. He was easy to get a hold of and available to answer our questions. Now we will be working with him to buy the next property!"
"Troy has been a great agent to work with. He was very reliable and did a great job. He was there to guide us every step of the way through the process of selling my mother's home. He is a very nice man and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent. "
Thank you again for all of your help with this. It has been a pleasure working with you. Have a great day!

Troy was great! We used him when we bought an sold our house. He was quick to reply to questions/concerns, as he was very attentive. I would not hesitate to use him again!
Tyler stonge (seller/buyer)
I worked with a local Teal Estate Agent for two-years, looked at 100s of houses, with no luck. A friend recommended Troy Smith. I called Troy to discuss my dream house and my must haves in my house. Within a week Troy showed me the perfect house! It had everything I was looking for in a fantastic neighborhood. There were many offers and Troy skillfully guided me in developing my competitive and successful offer. I was amazed how fast and spot on Troy was in finding time my perfect home. I highly recommend Troy with no reservations! What makes Troy different from other Realtors? He listens, he knows the areas and he has the expert experience to offer excellent professional advise & guidance through the entire process.
I don't believe in giving recommendations on internet as so many are lies. However, in the case of Troy Anthony Smith , He was very conscientious and listen to are requirements, location, price range, home size and layout. He never tried to oversell and followed through with the owner to insure all issues were addressed prior to closing. If you want a real estate professional, then look no further!
Troy is an excellent realtor. He is very knowledgeable in the Riverside county, especially in the Temecula, DeLuz area where we were interested in. He took the time weekly to show us houses and actively searched for houses that he thought would fit our needs. He was always available to answer our questions
I met Troy during an open house. He began talking to my wife and I getting to know us and what we were looking for. It wasn't a "getting to know" type where he was trying to sell us anything quickly. He genuinely wanted to find us a home like a personal family member was look out for us. He would search high and low for us always keeping us updated when a good home would come up in the area we wanted to live. Finally that day came and Troy negotiated very well, looking into every detail, in order to make sure we were getting a fair deal on the home. It was a complete pleasure and wonderful experience for us a first time home buyers. he works hard for us until the keys were in our hand.
Troy is skilled and knowledgeable in the real estate, he always has the pulse of the market in his hand! We had a property that was very difficult because it had to be a cash offer. Troy found a buyer! Randy Robison (seller/buyer)
Excellent and highly recommend. Got to know him by a recommendation from one of my professional colleagues living in Temecula CA, Punctual and well planned to show houses. Next time he needs to show to convince us to get a house in Murrieta/Temecula area that still is an option for us. Thanks, Troy.
Dr. Woo (buyer)
I met Troy in 2015 after requesting to see a property I found on Zillow. Originally, I was looking for a property in De Luz and Temecula area and we looked at a number of properties but I could never pull the trigger. Three years later we found a beautiful property in Fallbrook, CA through Troy. He had never given up on us, always provides extreme Customer Care and has the highest attention to detail on every aspect of the buying process. Troy is extremely knowledgeable not only in real estate but also in property development. He is professional, knowledgeable, punctual, a great communicator, and a great negotiator. Any buyer, seller, or investor would be lucky to have him as their representative. I had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Troy
Lance W (buyer)
We chose Troy to sell a home and buy a home. He went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. He was so efficient and professional. He found a perfect home for my family and I in yucaipa and we couldn’t be happier! He will always be my first choice for a Realtor.
“Before working with Troy, I had been looking at homes for over a year with another Realtor. With my hectic schedule it was important to find a Realtor who was hard working and able to work around my schedule. Troy was a perfect fit, he was extremely knowledgeable and professional. In a very short time he was able to put me in an amazing home. I had a deadline and Troy made it happen, he also was extremely helpful through all the paper work. It is my first home and I could have asked for a better experience. I will be recommending him to friends and family as well as working with him in the future when I'm ready buy again.”
It is our pleasure to recommend Troy Smith as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.
Troy had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best school districts. He did not waste our time with homes that were not in line with our needs.
He knows the surrounding areas of Northern San Diego like the back of his hand.
We found Troy to be a highly attentive agent. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality.
We are pleased to recommend Troy Smith to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Tom and Susan (buyer)
Troy's breath of knowledge extended far beyond real estate; he provided me sound advice as a former property developer with a strong background in construction and design. He presented himself as prepared and well researched at all times. I was very impressed that Troy truly wanted to help me find the perfect property for me. He had the skills and drive to find me my dream home.
I am thankful that Troy Smith is now my “go to” realtor, and friend. Way to go Troy Smith!
Troy did great for me when I was finding a home. He did not waste any of my time when bringing me to homes that did not fit my needs. He did not "try" to get me in a home I did not want. If I seemed I was not interested we would go to the next place. I am always tight on time and troy did a great time of not wasting any of my time. He got me in a home I wanted and closed very quickly. I will use him on my next purchase.
Luke W (buyer)
Whether you are buying or selling a home, you can trust Troy Smith to represent you as a realtor because he has your best interests in mind. Troy takes a personal interest in what you are trying to accomplish and will see to it that your goal is met, whether that is finding the home of your dreams or selling your home for a maximum profit. Troy's negotiating and networking skills are second to none, which is not easy to find in a realtor these days. Troy has helped me both purchase and sell a home in the past, and I will not hesitate to call him in the future should I need to complete another real estate transaction.
Ryan T (seller/buyer)
Troy Smith does more than just help us through real estate transactions, he helps us see opportunities and even challenges we may have missed. I’ve worked with other agents, but I’ve never felt like I’ve had an agent who was my advocate, who was willing to put in the time and energy to make sure my experience was positive and exceeded expectations. I’ve recommended Troy Smith several times and expect to do so for many years to come.
- Gordon T (seller/buyer)
You never truly know what’s going on with the real estate market until you’re in it. With Troy’s leadership and FULL TIME commitment, we were able to posture ourselves to take advantage of a turbulent and competitive market. Through his skill, patience, and coaching we were able to find the right house and create the right transaction that was best for us and the sellers. I wouldn’t recommend anyone other than Troy.
- Thanks again. David Massey (buyer)
Troy Smith was our realtor in late 2012 and early 2013. I had just returned from a deployment as a U.S. Marine and wanted to buy a house. He was able to walk me through all the steps to buy a house and gave me access to all the listings in a very friendly website. When I found a house I liked, he arranged the meeting and talked directly with the listing agent. There were three other offers, including a cash offer, to compete with. We didn’t appear to have a shot at the purchase but after many offers and counter offers, we were able to get the house for the listing price.
In addition, when my mortgage company wasn’t able to meet the constricted timelines set forth by the seller, he put me in contact with another lender and closed the escrow in about a month.
I would recommend Troy due to his attention to detail, persistence, and negotiating skills. He is very easy to work with.
1st Sgt. Brian Porter, USMC (seller/buyer)
Great! Really Great!! Very Helpful!!
We live out of state, and did out work through power of attorney and the internet. Very Painless.
Great advice and lots of patience.
- Kathy (seller)
Outstanding performance and highest integrity, most recommended to all!
Sold my home in less than 2 weeks for top dollar, always keeping my best interest in mind. Always there when I needed him and his overall knowledge and experience helped me get the most $$ for my new move!!
- Sean Hayner
I have been actively referring my Probate and Trust Administration clients to Troy Smith for several years now who need assistance with selling the estate real estate. I can truly say that he has always been attentive to our clients’ needs and wants, as well as very receptive to the fact that these are people dealing with a death in the family (most times) and are not always cooperative during the process. With that said, Troy always keeps his cool and maintains his professionalism no matter the emotion involved on the clients’ part. I would definitely say that “Troy exceeds the clients expectations” in almost every instance and that is the reason he is the first we turn to when there is real property to be sold.
- Riki Rivera, Best Best & Krieger
Mr. Troy Smith represented me as my Real-estate Agent during the summer of 2012 and did an outstanding job keeping me in front of all issues and very informed on all of the new home purchase requirements. Troy is an extremely easy person to work with and I would recommend him to anyone who is in the process of procuring a new residence. Terrific Agent!!
- Bruce Chase
We are very happy to have you as our agent to purchase our first million dollar house. As new comer in town, we loved the city and want to live in our dream house. You have presented the unique analysis model and helped us to get correct evaluation of the house value. After we identify the right property, you have provided clear guidance on each step until we lock the deal. Your years experience and solid professional skills are definitely the key for our successful purchase.
We could not remember how many times calling you at 9:00 pm for questions and discussions. Please accept our apology. Not every realtor can have such dedication to the customers. We know your next customer can enjoy the same dedications we had.

We first met Troy when we visited an open house for sale. From our first contact with Troy, not only did we find him professional and knowledgeable, but we felt as if we were amongst friends. He made a first impression of being honest, fair, and to the point. We visited this same property several times and were always greeted by Troy with the same friendly honest professionalism, and ultimately ended up buying this 1.1 million dollar home. We thought so much of Troy that we insisted on his representing us as our agent to buy the same house he was listing. We had been working with another agent but it was clear Troy had a much firmer grasp on the market and our needs, in addition to his built-in rapport with the seller, than did our former agent. Troy also advised us about selling our then current house. His market analysis and his calculation of the optimal selling price was exact. That house sold in 3 days. We would highly recommend Troy Smith to anyone buying or selling a high end property. Sincerely,
- Anthony and Jennifer Domenico
It was a great pleasure to work with Troy Smith. We originally had another Realtor that we were working with who didn’t make us feel comfortable or didn’t listen to our wants and needs, it also didn’t seem like they were in it to help us. Then I found Troy Smith from the time we first spoke to the last process of our close of escrow, he always made sure to put our needs first and always made us feel comfortable. He was also very patient we never felt like he was rushing us into anything or trying to talk us into something we didn’t really want. Anytime we had a question we could call him and he would always be ready to help… He gave us good advice and straight forward answers which I myself liked. Troy was always on top of things, we never had to wonder or wait to see what was going on with the property we were buying. If we ever decide to purchase another home in the future Troy would be the guy that we would go to he made the whole stressful process of buying a home less stressful which is hard to do…
