I want to be your Scottsdale realtor. Michael Smitty Smith. Beat Zillow with our detailed home search www.scottsdalearizona.realestate Much more detailed. Real estate has been a massive part of Michael’s life, giving him a competitive advantage over most real estate agents. Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, to a real estate mother, Michael was exposed to the art of buying and selling properties at a very young age. At just 22 years, Michael purchased his first investment property. By the age of 40, Michael has successfully completed over 40 personal transactions. His exposure has helped him gain an extensive skill set ranging from knowledge of local marketing trends, analytical skills, and negotiation skills. What's the first thing you will notice when you meet me? I am short. Yep, I am only 5'4". How did that work to my advantage? I have always had to work harder to be competitive in sports, experiencing rejection and finding a workaround to reach my goals. I always found business was one place that size didn't matter. I am not a suit and tie guy anymore. I did the corporate America thing as a regional sales manager for Heil Environmental. Now, I can be seen wearing golf attire, construction boots, and a nice pair of jeans. I am now more focused on living a quality of life in Scottsdale. I have done a lot of personal improvement including Tony Robbins Life Mastery. It taught me about investing in myself and working on my life. PS: I wear a lot of golf hats after having some skin cancer. My real estate business has always been referral based and I like working with people who like working with me. I am not looking to work with everybody, just those who are a good fit for both of us. Someone who comes from a family with strong values, a hard work ethic, and a desire to succeed, I like to look at a transaction as my own and dig deep to find out how we can get the best terms, pricing, and results. I feel the ups and downs of buying and renovating my own properties have helped me learn a lot about marketing, contract negotiation, inspections, and most factors involved in the home process. I work with all types of people from first-time homebuyers looking for advice and guidance, downsizers looking for a new lifestyle, to successful business owners, doctors, and executives who want an expert to help them while they focus on their area of expertise. I have served on the board of 4 homes owners associations and learned a lot about living in an HOA. Nothing beats experience. I am just here applying for a job.
