We live in Chilliwack, BC and used Karyn Scott and the David Smith Homes Group as our realtor in our search for a condo on Burnaby Mountain at SFU. Karyn was fantastic and found us the perfect condo within our tight timeline. She is extremely professional, detail oriented and knowledgeable. I would definitely use Karyn again for our real estate needs.

David and Karyn are absolutely amazing! We saw 36 homes with them before purchasing in the height of the crazy market. On the 34th home David said to us I don't think this is the right home for you guys. It shows their patience and how much they understood us and our needs. They helped us find the perfect home for our family and I was always impressed with their knowledge of the market and the area. They noticed little details that could be good or bad in each home and the offers we presented in multiple offer situations were always competitive. We cannot say enough good things about them. It was a pleasure working with them!

Karen, has now helped us purchase 2 and sell 1 homes in the last 3 years, once when we moved to BC from Ontario and now again moving within BC. Karen & David as a team where fantastic as we sold our place and we had a last minute hiccup. They took care of everything allowing us to focus on packing. If you're looking for an agent in the lower mainland this is the team for you.

What can I say? Is Karyn the best Realtor(R) I've worked with, YES! Is the team professional and do they think of the smallest details to make your place look it's very best, YES! What are they good at: let me name the ways: communicating, advertising, punctuality, preparedness, attention to detail, able to suggest alternatives, provide amazing ideas, fight for the client, obtain further advice if the situation requires it, prepared with accurate information on the market, the community, the neighbourhood. I could go on but that wouldn't give you the opportunity to get to see all the small things they do as well. Does this team know the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland's market, absolutely. Not sure why you're even looking anywhere else for such a professional team!

Our journey with David and his team began around 3 months ago and it’s one of the greatest journeys I ever had. he showed us that his job is more finding us our dream home that will fit our needs. Every time we viewed a property David would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. David also led us to get to a price we were comfortable with. In the end we found the property that was perfect for us and even we got a walk through with the previous owner to show us around and teach us how to use Everything! Thank you David and his team! It’s been a pleasure working with you.

David and Karyn are beyond amazing. We could not have felt more supported throughout our first home buying process. They both spent so much time answering our questions and making every effort to understand our needs. Karyn became intimately acquainted with all the features we needed and wanted in a home, and was able to help us ultimately find the perfect fit. When we decided to place our bid in a highly competitive situation, David talked us through every step and advocated for us in generous and unexpected ways. And when we won against all odds, it was their victory as well. They literally laughed and cried with us. We cannot recommend this realtor team highly enough. You will never regret having them on your side!

Can’t say enough good things about the realtor team at David Smith homes. We were recommended to David Smith by a close friend who had recently bought their first home like we were setting out to do. David sat down with us got an idea of what we were looking for and explained what to expect and answered the typical first time home buyer questions and things we hadn’t even thought of yet. When it came time to put in an offer Karyn worked hard to get us the information we needed on the property. In our situation it definitely paid off to have a realtor who was experienced as we were buying a new build from an investor in which case the GST could be charged a second time (surprise cost yikes) luckily we were aware of this and were able to navigate through it.

We are so grateful for David and Karyn's help in buying a new home and selling our townhouse. It was a very difficult market, and they did a great job in providing us with all the information we needed to be realistic about the homes we were looking at, and make a competitive offer that was accepted. Given the market and stories about families making offers time after time without success, we were so grateful to be successful on our second offer, and we attribute that to the excellent information and preparation from our fantastic realtors! At the same time, the sale of our townhouse was a rollercoaster, but David and Karyn did a lot of work behind the scenes, and secured an offer that was higher than we expected. We are so grateful for their support and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor.

It’s been a pleasure to work with David! He walked alongside us in our journey to buying our home and over the past 18 months, their support, encouragement and professional advice have been outstanding. David was fun to work with, fun to visit potential homes with and when it came to putting in our offer, he worked incredibly hard to get us the right house, at the best price on a timescale that’s works for us. I guess we’ve found our long term realtor team for sure!

David, Karyn and the team were absolutely terrific to deal with, in my search for the ideal condo for my daughter. Having not been in the real estate market in a long time, there were many changes and challenges to navigate. David put us at ease with his great insights, advice and professionalism through every step of the way. David and his team were extremely responsive to all communications, provided me with honest and detailed advice and information that I needed to make good decisions in a very challenging market. I really felt he had our family's best interests in mind and his team worked hard to help me understand the process and what to look for. We did indeed look at a number of houses in different locations and David even took time out of his own schedule to be there in person for viewings. He really understood what I was looking for and was very motivated to find the right fit for my needs. I have no hesitation in recommending David and his team for any of your real estate needs. 5 stars from me!

I met David at an open house in 2018. I was interested in his knowledge of the market and the real estate industry. David is also straightforward to talk to. My wife and I checked out his videos and marketing online and were impressed. We decided to use David to list our Langley condo and were amazed. David Smith and Karyn Scott worked closely with us as they made our listing shine online. We appreciated how responsive they were to any messages and requests, not to mention their depth of knowledge, experience and savvy. Not only did we get a highly desirable outcome on the sale, but the entire experience was excellent. They are also very down-to-earth people to work with and embody their mantra of People Over Property, Always. We highly recommend David Smith Homes Group to anyone looking to buy or sell.

David was our realtor for our first home purchase. After setting up and coming to many, many, many open houses and showings, he helped us secure our new home in South Surrey. David is exceptionally knowledgeable about the lower mainland market, and made us very comfortable that we were in good hands. Can't recommend him and his team (looking at you Karyn!) enough!

We first met David Smith three years ago when we sought to purchase our first condo. In a season of rising prices and multiple offer sales, we were hesitant. David helped us find the perfect home, which we bought for under asking in a desirable neighborhood. When we reached out to David again a few years later, he walked us through the selling process and was patient with us as we casually started looking for a bigger space. For more than a year, David sent us Snapstats as we analyzed the market with him, researching and waiting for the right time to sell. Then, on a whim this past March, we viewed a presale development and fell in love. David was right there when we needed him, and again helped us buy our new townhouse under asking price. In September, David took care to artfully market and sell our condo in multiple offers over asking. In three years, we’ve bought two homes under asking and sold our condo for over asking in multiple offers and David has been there every step of the way. David is more than a Realtor to us, he’s a friend, confidante, the guy you feel like you’ve known forever when you’ve only just met. We truly felt valued and appreciated, and that he had our best interest in mind. David is honest, trustworthy, authentic, and kind. Hiring David was the most important and best decision we made, and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I can't recommend David and his team enough. David handled our recent sale in Langley, and subsequent purchase in Maple Ridge. David epitomizes everything a realtor should be: organized, friendly, responsive, empathetic, understanding, and patient (VERY patient!). David and Karyn guided us through uncharted waters and we came out the other side in a better position than we had hoped for. People over property, always isn't just a catch phrase - it truly is their mantra and it's inspiring to see David run his business so true to his convictions. Thanks, David and Karyn for your incredible service through our home-buying journey.

David and Karyn practice what they preach..People over property, always! We are so grateful for their wisdom, patience and professionalism throughout this process. They went above and beyond to ensure our questions were answered. David and Karyn have a way of making you feel like you are their top priority, even if you are selling a smaller property, like we were. We wholeheartedly recommend these realtors for buying/selling in Langley and surrounding areas. They were also just so fun to work with and their meme game is strong.

If you're trying to decide on who to trust with one of the larger decisions in your life, then allow me to encourage you to stop searching, and contact David, Karyn and the Team at the David Smith Homes Group. These two are not only incredible human beings, but are also gifted realtors who really do stand by their motto: People over property. Always. Not only are the pair of them organized, systematic, patient, gracious, and always professional, they also work as a well-oiled machine. We'd ask David a question, and Karyn would get back to us with an answer within the hour, and vice versa. The two of them worked for us tirelessly in a market that was impossible. They helped us understand the process of purchasing a home as first-time home buyers in ways that weren't overwhelming, frustrating, or anxiety producing. Our questions were welcomed and encouraged, and at every step of the way, any concerns we had were addressed immediately. Karyn and David, Jenna and I are truly so grateful and thankful for your influence, your care, your kindness, and your professionalism, and we're so grateful for your help in getting us into our first home. We wish the two of you all the best, and are excited for where the future will take us.

Buying our first home was exciting but definitely brought it's share of fears and questions especially in the fast moving market of Langley and Surrey. Having David (and his team) as our realtor made everything clear and comfortable. Their slogan of people over property is not just a phrase. They are quick to respond and equipped us with the knowledge we needed to make a decision but never pressured to make one that might not be the right fit for us. We went up against 7 other offers and came out on top thanks to the great guidance and calming support of David and his team. Could not recommend enough!

After helping my family during a challenging stage of my grandparents life David helped me for a 2nd time in the last year, guiding me throw the purchase of my own new townhouse in Langley during a difficult stage of my own life. During a crazy hot market David always had time for me, educated me on the assignment process, what risks/obstacles I needed to be aware of, was honest and upfront with me even when the news wasn't great and to top it all off even managed to negotiate the purchase for under market value. Highly recommend realtor David Smith and his team.

We started working with David and Devin almost a year ago (we decided to time our listing for the Spring market) on the sale of our home, in Langley, we've been in for 14 years. From the start, David was a consummate professional with a down to earth and genuinely helpful approach. He educated us on the process of buying and selling and gave us lots of time and space to make decisions we felt were best for us. We had a roller coaster ride, due to covid-19, on the sale side but, in the end, we couldn't have been happier with the result. The buy side was no easier, with such a hot market in the price range and areas we were looking. David took the time to really understand what we were looking for and, when we found a property we were interested in, he worked day and night, seven days a week, to help us secure the deal. It was an all-around great experience working with David and Devin (and Lindsay and Ty when they were called upon). Great fun to work with yet serious and super diligent at the right times. We highly recommend this realtor team. Thank you David, Devin, Lindsay and Ty!

We could not have dreamed up a better real estate experience than we received from David Smith. His knowledge of the Langley market and his professional guidance helped us buy a new home and sell our home with precision timing. David's relentless work ethic found us a home on the exact street we wanted for our family that was not even listed at the time. He then guided us through a process to secure the home, under market price with protection in place to allow us time to sell our home. The work David and his team then put in over two weeks to market, list and sell our home for $75,000 over out list price was remarkable. We could not have asked for a better realtor. His guidance and friendship through this process proved to us that he truly values people over property.
