Kolby was incredibly helpful from our first contact to even after we closed on our new home. My wife and I didn’t know whether we were going to build or buy our next home so when it was explained that we were new to the idea about improving land, Kolby responded by admitting he was not an expert but he knew people who were and would be willing to connect us with whomever would be helpful in that process. We took him up on that offer and ultimately decided against building after an extensive round of land searching and talking to experts.
Our search for a home was rather sporadic and Kolby kept with us every step of the way. We would bring him a list of homes culled from many sources and he would coordinate showings in a multitude of different locations. Our built home search spanned about six months with many weeks of silence from my wife and I as we searched and discussed between ourselves our options of perspective properties, but when we did contact Kolby, he was as eager and willing to do whatever we were most comfortable with.
His professional attitude and personal approach never faltered during our difficult negotiations as our purchase agreement was reached about a week before the Covid-19 pandemic hit and our sellers vacationed in Europe. In the ensuing chaos, Kolby navigated the technicalities of not only our purchase of a home but stepped in to help facilitate the sale of my own house, a quasi “for sale by owner” venture.
All questions I had were answered. All scenarios considered. All contingencies covered. My personal satisfaction: complete. I am more than satisfied with Kolby’s performance. There is one more house to be sold and I am looking forward to working with him, again
Amazing and helpful, always a person I'd trust to sell any property
Kolby was fantastic to work with. We were uncertain of what to expect from the changing market and he guided us through the process. The listing was very professional, all communication was timely and he made the process very easy. Most importantly Kolby took the time to understand who we were and what we needed, and laid out a strategy to meet our goals. If you’re in need of a realtor, you’ve found the right guy!
Kolby helped us so much finding our (hopefully) forever home that met all our criteria. Very communicative through the entire process, able to answer all of our questions, and worked hard for us!
Listing our home in the rapidly evolving real estate market of late Summer 2022 near downtown Indy was challenging, yet Kolby was confident in his evaluation of our home and determined to ensure our needs were met. We'd relocated out of state by the time the home was listed, and we had full trust in Kolby's oversight re: staging, lawn care, open houses, etc. Our neighbors commented often about how well kept the property was, and reviews from buyer's agents and prospective buyers was exceptional. Ultimately, we had an incredibly positive experience with Kolby and would fully advocate for him to others. The entire process was smooth, well thought out, and with few surprises along the way!
Fantastic experience. Answered all of my questions timely. Great availability. Easy to work with. Answered all of my questions. Would highly recommend his services.
Hands down, Kolby is the best! Very knowledgeable, hardworking, and great at finding the home of your dreams. I would highly recommend!
Kolby came highly recommended and after working with him, it's easy to see why. The whole homebuying process, even in this crazy competitive market, was incredibly easy with him. He was quick to communicate, willing to work around our schedule, incredibly knowledgable, and honest about what homes would and wouldn't be a good fit for what my spouse and I were looking for. When we found the home we wanted, he moved quickly and wrote an offer on our behalf that beat out 12 others. If you want a realtor who knows his stuff and will give you the best competitive edge, whether buying or selling, there's nobody better than Kolby!
We used Kolby to sell our house and buy one. We aren't first time home buyers and probably not in his typical age demographic but Kolby was awesome! He gave us great advice on selling and was super helpful in searching for a new home. He was great at communicating and staying in touch. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner. His service and support was impeccable! We highly recommend his services!
Kolby is the best! He and his team made selling my parents house so quick and easy. Kolby got the house under contract after just one day of listing. I think it surprised both of us how quickly the offers were coming in. He was thorough, professional and easy to work with.
Kolby was great, and very responsive. He made himself available at all times and answered all of our questions. The buying process was so simple and streamlined because of his attention to detail and organization skills. Thanks, Kolby!
Kolby is amazing! He took the time to get to know our family and what we wanted and needed in a home. We were trying to talk ourselves into a specific house and Kolby helped us see that wasn't the right house for us. We found our perfect home shortly after! Kolby's relationship with our loan officer helped ensure everything went smoothly and as quickly as possible. We had few questions about the process because Kolby worked so hard to educate us before we got to each step, and any question we had he was quick to give us the answer. We loved how communicative and responsive he is and couldn't be happier with our choice of agent and house!
Kolby was an incredible realtor for my family as first time home buyers. He took us through the process step by step, helped us understand the market and how to navigate it to get exactly what we wanted. He took the time to figure out exactly what we were looking for and was actually the one who took us to the house we ended up buying when we had skipped it originally. Kolby is an amazing realtor that gives you service like you’re buying a million dollar house with him, even as just a first time homebuyer. He is also super helpful with other aspects of the home buying process, he put us in contact with a great mortgage company and even steered me toward a better homeowners insurance company to get a better rate.
Anything we say here just seems insufficient as to how much we loved working with Kolby. We were given Kolby's name by a family member, and from the very first conversation we had he was 100% up to speed on what/when/how/where we wanted to buy. His attention to detail is unmatched and literally nothing gets past him. As first time home buyers, we had MANY questions and Kolby anticipated every single one of them. We never felt like he was contacting us too much and we also never felt like we couldn\'t get ahold of him. He connected us with the best mortgage guy in the business and help us through the loan process where ever he could. After we had our pre-approval he showed us many homes and always showed up with a great attitude and willing to take as much time as we needed. When we finally found the home we couldn't live without, Kolby got super creative and wrote the most competitive offer imaginable and we ended up beating out TWENTY-THREE other above asking price offers. To put it very simply, if Kolby had not been our realtor, we would NOT have gotten this house. Once we had our accepted offer, he guided us through the inspections, appraisals, walk-throughs, etc. and he had names/companies whenever we needed them but never pushed them onto us. At closing, the selling agent made it a point to let us know that Kolby had been so great to work with and that the offer he wrote stood out because of the little things Kolby added in. We don't anticipate moving again any time soon, but we will be shouting Kolby's names from the rooftops for anyone who might be in need of a realtor. If you're reading this, I promise you, you've found the best one.
Buying a first home can be scary, but Kolby made buying our first home easier then we thought! Kolby took the time to meet with us frequently, kept us informed during the process, and always looked out for our best interest. Kolby got to know us on a personal level and was able to find us a better home than we could have imagined!
Overall my husband Kyle Parliament and I had a very positive experience with Kolby Smethers as our agent. He made sure to always answer our questions, was very honest about the housing market and how difficult finding a house would be during the short window of time we gave him but was also very positive we could find something we would love. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. Always felt like we were a priority to him and I very much appreciated that. It was such an ease to work with him. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for an agent as well as working with him again if I and my husband were ever in the market for another home.
Stress-free, fun and simple are not words one thinks of when buying a house, especially when you are a first time home buyer. That being said, these are the words that came to mind when reflecting on buying a house with Kolby as our realtor. Kolby doesn’t just try to sell you a house, instead he commits himself 100% to not only find you the right house, but to educate you about the process along the way. He was there for us during the ups, downs, and everything in between. Even after we closed on our first home Kolby constantly checks in to make sure everything is still going okay, and to see all of the updates we have done.
First off I have to say I'm beyond grateful for the hard work and dedication from Kolby. As a first time home buyer I knew nothing about nothing and felt pretty blind to it all. Working with Kolby and his team was not only easy but made me more confident in buying a home. We struggled at first looking at homes but had a great time laughing through the struggles. After finally finding one in an area that was perfect for us , there was no pictures but Kolby didn\'t let that stop us. Jokingly walking into Men and Black headquarters with no listing photos, turned out to be my forever home. This team was so professional and so quick with approvals and paperwork. I would recommend Kolby for all your home buying or home selling needs. Thank you again for this opportunity and finding our forever home! You’re the best!
Kolby was really a pleasure to work with. He was easy going. Down to earth. He was so quick with getting us walk throughs with houses no matter what time of day. Which was definitely key to getting us a house in this quick moving market. We chose a house within a few weeks and stuck to our guns and he was by our side every step of the way answering any questions he could. He also hooked us up with the best lender, Will Reno! Oh and Kolby really personalized our experience our realtor/buyer relationship by sending us cards and even gave us gifts at closing. He really did listen to us when we talked about what we wanted for our house and I really appreciated that. Another thing I really liked about this experience was that I could communicate with my team how I prefer which is through email and text. It made my life so much easier. I’m thoroughly impressed with how easy they all made our house buying experience. I will be recommending Kolby and his crew to anyone I come across that wants to buy a house that’s for sure!!
Kolby really went above and beyond to help us sell our old house. He demystified the selling process and was always available to answer questions. He provides outstanding customer service and really cares about his clients. We would recommend Kolby to anyone buying or selling a house!
Our experience with Kolby Smethers was nothing short of amazing! My husband and I truly weren’t even in the market for a new home, but through a number of casual conversations and Kolby knowing the right questions to ask and what to look for, we have found our dream home! And just as soon as he helped us find that, he was helping us get our home ready to list. Offer accepted in 8 days! Throughout our buying and selling process Kolby continually checked in on us, offered assistance, guided us through next steps, etc. Kolby, we cannot thank you enough. You truly have done an outstanding job!
We cannot begin to tell you how wonderful Kolby was from beginning to end on the search for our new home. We looked for well over a year. He always stayed positive and very focused on what we wanted and needed to make the move back home from KY to IN. We cannot begin to tell you how fortunate we are to have not only the BEST son, but also the best realtor in the family as well. He was very professional and always always had our needs and wants at the top of his list. During the time we were waiting for our new forever home to be renovated, Kolby and Jeanne opened their home to us to stay with them. It took 4 months until completion. During this time I saw our son do the most amazing things for not only us but for other clients to get them ready to sell or move or whatever they needed. Kolby not only goes above and beyond what a realtor would or should do for his clients, in our eyes, he blows them all away with his dedication and loyalty to make sure any client gets exactly what they need and want in a new home . To say the least, we couldn’t be more happy or proud of “Kolby” our son the realtor! He won’t disappoint, promise!
If you want an anxiety free, relaxing, and professional approach, I would absolutely recommend Kolby Smethers! I will never forget my first conversation with Kolby about buying a home. It started with me saying something I had always believed to be true: "We will probably never be able to buy a home". Kolby quickly put that belief to rest, and helped my wife and I realize that with a little bit of work and patience on our part we could make that happen. A few months later we had put and offer in and closed on our first home. Through it all, Kolby was professional, supportive, calming, and made the process fun and easy. We are so grateful for how hard he worked for us and cannot recommend him high enough to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. If you're in the market, talk to Kolby!
Amazing communication and 100% satisfied with Kolby’s assistance with helping me buy my first home. Would highly recommend this realty agent to any first home buyer he will explain everything to the T. Thanks Kolby for everything you are truly a dream come true.
Kolby was stellar! He made this process extremely easy for us! From looking on the Tucker app at listings to actually going to a few houses, it was a painless process from start to finish. We fell in love with the first house we looked at and Kolby made sure that that was the house we were going to purchase! He made sure to let us know what we were getting into and if he didn’t know something, he made sure to find out and let us know or told us who we could talk to to make sure we knew what was up. 1,000% would do this process again with him and would definitely recommend him to any potential home buyers!
Is there a 10-star rating?? There isn\'t enough space here to rave about Kolby Smethers! He stands heads and shoulders above his peers. From our first phone conversation, through the sometimes harrowing travels of this crazy time in real estate in Central Indiana, and right through the closing, Kolby deftly guided us to purchasing the house of our dreams. Throughout it all he has been an absolute champ, far and above exceeding our expectations. He was always quickly responsive to our myriad questions, action and goal-oriented, compassionate and personable. Most importantly, perhaps, is that he actually listened to our thoughts, feedback, requests and concerns. If there is a class on being an outstanding realtor, Kolby Smethers should teach it! Thank you, Kolby!
Kolby’s attention to detail and patience not only help us find our first home, but made us life time clients of his. He was always available for questions and to show us houses. He was a very honest guide in each house and really helped us narrow down the perfect one for for us.
I am so pleased that Kolby is my REALTOR! He’s been professional and personable throughout every communication and transaction. Kolby listened to my wishes and worked hard to find just what I wanted! I’m excited to be moving into my condo this week! He was persistent in looking for a condo in the area that I requested with the amenities I wanted.
He’s been so helpful (and calming when I need it) and kept me updated and current in all communications and transactions.
I’m glad he’s now my realtor for selling my house and I HIGHLY recommend Kolby!
Beyond happy on how everything worked out. Kolby was able to get us with the right people to set us up with buying the new home. Provided plentiful information and takes pride in his work. He also set us up with all the correct people to sell my other home. It was such a relief to have a fella like Kolby to represent us. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Through Kolby's efforts, we sold our house in hours. He had a fantastic photographer who did an amazing job. He assisted us through a very difficult time during our search for a new home. He continues to be a huge asset recommending professional services for our new home. He has gone out of his way to make our move as easy as possible.
We would recommend Kolby and F.C. Tucker.
