"My husband and I have worked with Steve Smith for over 5 years. He has helped us sell and purchase two homes in Torrance. In each instance Steve has been professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. Steve and his wife, Antoinette, were responsive to our questions and needs. Steve has a vast knowledge of home improvement and can assess many issues that the average buyer would miss. He has also guided us in preparing a home for sale and we received multiple offers at over asking price.

When our adult children started looking to buy homes, of course we referred them to Steve. Steve was extremely helpful in the negotiation process and able to help our kids close the deal – even in today’s challenging seller’s market.

If you are looking for the best realtor in the South Bay – we recommend Steve Smith!

"I have known Steve Smith since he sold our home to us in 1998. Subsequently he has been the real estate professional of choice for friend and others in my family. After my mother passed away we needed to prepare and sell our her home and I contacted Steve for his advice and guidance. I had previously sold my home as a for sale by owner and was considering doing so again. But with age, sometimes comes wisdom, and I decided to contact Steve to give me his evaluation of our situation. Do we sell ‘as is’ with minimal work done, how much and what improvements to make?

Steve handles any real estate situation but he proved extremely adept in the area of improving homes prior to sale. He had excellent tradesmen come to work quickly at very reasonable prices. Steve knew what areas to improve and in the most popular choices with cost efficiency. In essence he took on the task of general contractor in addition to real estate agent and was a joy to work with.

My decision to contact Steve Smith, rather than pursuing the improvements and sale myself netted us approximately $200,000 more on the sale of the south Torrance home. And he made the process as smooth and easy as we could ever hope for. If anyone has any concerns or questions they are welcome to contact me as a reference on our experience with Steve.

"We have purchased two homes and sold one with the help and guidance of Steve Smith. He made us feel that our satisfaction was more important than the transaction. We greatly benefited from his decades of experience in real estate. His attention to the details (and there are so very many in buying and selling of a home) and his ability to truly listen to our budget and needs and wishes are the most valuable aspects to having Steve on your side. He is the only person we would turn to for our real estate needs. Thanks Steve! We love our new home! "

"Steve made our experience as first time home buyers as painless as possible. He was always responsive and extremely knowledgeable about the entire process. He is honest and always put our minds at ease with any little thing that came up. We look forward to working with him again! "

"Steve is the best of the best. We have both bought and sold houses with him. Our latest house was the most expensive in our neighborhood at the time, and we were out of the country during the entire staging and sales process. He handled every single thing for us in terms of staging, repairs, cleaning, upgrades, inspections, and more. He is exceptional at attention to detail and does not miss anything. He is fabulous at negotiating, whether representing the buyer or seller. We would recommend him to anyone and we hope to use him again in the future. "

"This was my first home purchase. My husband had used Steve in the past and said he would not use any other realtor. For a first time homebuyer I was nervous. But Steve knew exactly how to negotiate with a seller who was selling for sale by owner. Steve completely had our best interests in mind and was able to get us the price we wanted. We knew the minute the front door opened that this was the house for us. Steve was calm throughout the entire process and of course I was a nervous wreck never having been through the process. Steve assured us everything was going to work out and it sure did. We are now the new owners of this absolutely gorgeous house with a view and a pool. We will forever be grateful to Steve and his wife Antoinette for making our dream come true possible. Steve also recommended the absolute best wood floor restoration person, the best gardener and pool service people. We love our new house so much. Thank you Steve and Antoinette Smith! "

"Steve Smith is the best realtor we’ve ever worked with. We have bought and sold 6 homes and have worked with 11 realtors. Steve Smith is the most knowledgeable, most conscientious, and most dedicated realtor ever. There’s never any doubt that he has his clients’ interest as his top priority. If you want to buy or sell a property in or around the South Bay, Steve is your best choice. He knows the market; he knows the best strategy; and he knows all the legal and regulatory details. We bought our house in Torrance, CA with Steve in 2000 and we sold the house with him in 2017. Within a week of listing, we had 6 competitive offers. We settled on the best-possible offer above our asking price, which was higher than we ever could have hoped for. We successfully closed the sale sooner than we hoped for, too. We were already out-of-state at the time, so Steve handled all the issues to ensure a smooth and prompt closing. He kept us informed all along the way and was immediately responsive to all our queries. "

★★★★★
"From day one, we knew we made the best decision of our lives. Steve walked us thru the entire process of selling our home. He made the best recommendations to improve our property to get it ready for sale. He even set up the appointments for the different contractors we used for the improvements. Steve was always available to talk to. He was never too busy to keep us updated on a daily basis. Our property was small, but he treated it like a multimillion dollar property! He is genuinely kind and caring. He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. 200% satisfied! 200 Stars!"
