Hillary Smith

REALTOR®

Hillary works on The Smith Team with Jeremy Smith and Clayton Issleib

Hillary finds joy in the opportunity to guide first-time home-buyers as well as streamline the process for more seasoned buyers. A degree in Interior Design and work experience in residential design has helped her hone a set of skills that lend expertise to her clients. She has helped sellers stage and prepare their homes for their optimal selling experience. Her keen attention to detail not only aids buyers in resale purchases but also has proven very helpful in guiding new-build clients in their selection of materials and finishes for their home.

Having grown up in Central Texas, Hillary knows what makes this area so special. With so many people moving to Greater Austin, Hillary loves to use her local knowledge to guide families to the perfect area of town. Carefully taking into account their necessities and desires, Hillary has the patience and tenacity to get her clients to the closing table with a smile.

After graduating from Baylor University, where she met Jeremy, they relocated to Asia for a number of years, ran a business in Washington DC, and finally moved back to Texas to start their family. Having relocated many times herself, she understands the trials and excitement that come with it and aims to serve her clients with empathy and professionalism to make the transition as smooth as possible.

On the homefront, Hillary and Jeremy love spending time with their two adorable and spunky children and laid-back dog. When she’s not chasing children or showing homes, Hillary loves being in nature, studying trees and birds, eating queso at Torchy’s, and speaking just enough Mandarin to get herself in trouble.

Hillary Smith is a treasure! We sold two houses and bought a new one in less than 90 days, and we could not have done it without Hillary. She is an excellent Realtor, very professional and one of a kind!

Working with Hillary has been great! The selling process was pretty painless and much better than the selling process we had a few years ago when using another Realtor. Hillary has been great in communicating, explaining the process, and making great recommendations on what we needed to do to get our house ready to sell. We are happy to have her assist us in completing the buying process of our new home that is being built now. She has already come to multiple meetings with us and the builder and has been very helpful.

Hillary was great to work with. She responded to us very quickly the first time we sent an inquiry, and she also sent us a package of information which helped us decide about having a look at Austin homes. Hillary did an exceptional job by taking us to all the areas of Austin as we were visiting for the first time. She was also well prepared for the homes that we were interested in. Hillary went beyond her job and gave us information about countertop granite, native birds, plants, and trees. She understood what we were looking for and delivered the best in a very little time. Hillary planned everything very well and showed us a lot of homes, including new construction and resales and this. We spent only two days with her, but we found our home sooner than expected. She is professional, and I am glad we could work with her.

Hillary and her team did an amazing job for us making this the smoothest buying process we’ve ever been through. Hillary’s service was exactly as mentioned; exemplary and personalized. We’ve already referred Hillary to some friends who are thinking about buying!

Hillary Smith has been absolutely wonderful and we enjoyed working with her. We are actually sold two houses and bought one house with her. Hillary is great and extremely professional. We don't want to deal with anyone else but Hillary. She's an asset to Realty Austin.

We had a wonderful experience with Hillary. She definitely exceeded our expectations in what we expected from an agent. Overall Hillary was extremely professional at all times, very knowledgeable about the current market and trends, supportive during this stressful time, used cutting edge technology, was honest and trustworthy, and a great negotiator while being kind at the same time. We couldn’t have been more happy with her as our agent. As a result of Hillary's experience, her knowledge, and negotiation skills, we received multiple offers above our listing price. We will recommend Hillary to all of our friends in Austin, and wished we could have taken her along with us to North Carolina to assist us in buying a new home here in Asheville. We wish Hillary and Realty Austin all the best.

My experience with Hillary Smith for this most recent transaction was beyond exemplary. I reached out to Hillary to help me with the purchase of my son’s home because of my previous experience with her when buying a home in Cedar Park. Hillary helped my husband and me when we relocated to the Cedar Park area last year. Her efforts with helping us secure and close on that home went so well, and I wanted to have Hillary work with me on this new acquisition. My husband passed away at the end of 2018, and I wanted someone that I felt good about helping me with my first home purchase without him. Hillary made this effort as smooth as could be hoped for.

Hillary is a smart, thoughtful and knowledgeable professional that listens carefully to what the customer wants, does her research to produce a property that fits the needs of the customer, and then efficiently relays information back and forth to bring the property to the closing table successfully. I have worked with many professionals, and have had some of my best work experiences with Hillary. I will be calling on her for any future acquisitions as long as she remains in the business. I can highly recommend her services. She provides the customer and your company with exemplary, personalized services, that exceeded my expectations, and made this first home purchase for my son a very pleasant experience.

We all know how hard it is to find the right home out of the weeds of information and advertisements, but Hillary made it so easy with pinpoint selections that weed out the wrong one and presented me with many homes that are truly a match to what I want, the only hardest part was making up my mind. The home buying experience I had with Hillary it wasn't just fun, it was practically magical. Thank you, Hillary!

Hillary was our Realtor, and she was exceptional! Hillary made the home buying process easy and a delight. She is a top-notch Realtor, provides top-class service, and first-rate! I highly recommend Hillary!

If you are looking to buy a home or land, then you need Hillary Smith on your side. She stood by us and helped us through our two-month ordeal of buying our property and even got dirty in the process when my car got stuck in mud the day of our closing. She definitely went above and beyond to help us and talk us through our unique experience. I will recommend her time and time again. She's awesome.

Last summer we purchased a home for the second time in our marriage and experienced our very first home sale. The home sale/purchase dance is always interesting and sometimes stressful, but Hillary Smith of HomeSmith Realty proved to be an invaluable asset. In helping to find our new home, Hillary was extremely patient. She listened to us to get an accurate picture of what type of house we needed. She is so observant and knowledgeable, and she could even help guide us in some criterion that we didn't think of on our own. Her input proved to be accurate of our needs and wants. Once we found a great new home match, she helped in all areas to close on the new house. No space was left as an unknown, from financing, timing, inspection reports, even utilities for the new home.

With the new home purchased, Hillary was already prepared to guide us through the sale of our existing home. She helped us with staging ideas and recommended a few easy, but useful upgrades and repairs to make our house shine. She carefully analyzed similar home sales in our area and came up with a recommended listing price. The listing crafted by Hillary and Jeremy, which included a glowing writeup describing our home and professional photos, was terrific and set our property well above the competition. The result was thrilling; in a very competitive market, we got an offer (which led to a contract and final sale) in less than 24 hours. Our home sale and the purchase was successful in all areas, but as a wonderful bonus, we gained a friend in Hillary. She was super relaxed and supportive throughout the entire process. Thanks, Hillary!

After 13 years in the same house, we started the process of looking for a home to fit our needs. Hillary was the first person I thought of to help us, and she exceeded every expectation I had of a Realtor. She is both professional and personable. We received excellent and prompt customer service in all the details of finding and buying a new home and selling our existing home. The finding/buying/selling venture all at once can be very overwhelming, but Hillary made it a delightful experience. Knowing Hillary was there to handle critical details and communication gave us such peace of mind. My husband and I absolutely love our new home; choosing Hillary and Jeremy was one of the best decisions we made!

I worked with Hillary to shop for and eventually perfect second home in Texas as my fiancé, and I prepare to relocate from Washington, DC. She is the ultimate professional, timely in communication, empathetic, and precisely the kind of coach you want to walk you through this complicated process. In purchasing our D.C. home years ago, we had such a stressful experience that left us wanting to walk away several times. Working with Hillary, however, was a breath of fresh air. I would recommend her to friends and family due to her trustworthiness and excellent recommendations for local lenders, too. She helped me negotiate a below-asking price in a competitive market of Round Rock, just north of Austin.

If you are looking to purchase a home, I can not possibly recommend anyone more highly than Hillary and Jeremy! Here are just a few reasons Hillary made my home buying experience as smooth as possible; she listens to what you want and doesn't bog down the process by trying to over-sell. If you're going to work with someone that is not sales-y and legitimately has your best interest at heart, Hillary is the way to go! I never once had to wait more than a few minutes to have a question answered. Whether it was on the weekend/morning/night, Hillary was available and ALWAYS had the answer we were looking for within minutes. Being a first time home buyer, this was huge. I never felt left in the dark or clueless throughout the process because Hillary would proactively provide answers to questions that I didn't even know I had yet. I don't even know what kind of situation I'd be in right now if she hadn't been there to assist my fiance and me throughout the process. Hillary is a good person! She never stopped being a professional, but she made the process fun, and I felt right at home joking and laughing along with her from the first time we met. It's so nice to be able to work with someone who is professional, but can also a process as daunting as purchasing a home feel easy and fun. In summary, if you're looking to buy a house, you'd be doing yourself a massive disservice by not working with Hillary and Jeremy Smith!

I am an out state home buyer, and Hillary did a few things for me. She helped me understand the Austin real estate market and pointed me to value and properties that would appreciate over time. While looking at homes, Hillary made sure I had extra time to drive through neighborhoods. Often, Hillary would suggest a longer route or additional driving to make sure I had the 'feel' for a neighborhood. She was also punctual and professional and fully briefed on the property and real estate pricing in each local area I looked. Hillary insisted I take the time to buy the right home (there was never a hard sell). Hillary also acted as my eyes and feet on the ground offering to tour and video properties as they were listed so that I had an immediate perspective about a property. She was patient and worked with my home buying needs (price, lifestyle, etc.). I would highly recommend hiring Hillary as your real estate agent. Mainly, if you are not from Austin, she goes the extra mile to make sure you can make a qualified decision about buying a home.

Hillary helped us with three transactions, and I highly recommend Hillary and Jeremy Smith for any buying and selling needs. Hillary is warm, friendly, professional, and motivated. We walked away 100% satisfied and would recommend (and hire again) in a heartbeat. I should further mention, she secured our DREAM home for us when there were multiple, hugely competitive offers on the table. And she SOLD two properties for us in record time for over asking. Excellent in every way!

Hillary and her team are professionals and helped us every step of the way which resulted in a quick sale and closing of our property. Thank you for all of your help.

After searching for two years, we finally switched Realtors to Hillary Smith. With her assistance, we found our dream home and closed in less than six weeks. Hillary and her team walked us through each step of the process and checked in regularly to be sure we understood everything. She focused on learning what we wanted and searching for homes reflecting our choices, all within our budget. Hillary worked flawlessly with our mortgage broker and house inspector to be sure we got the best deal. An added bonus is Hillary's friendly and positive attitude giving us great confidence. My husband and I highly recommend Hillary Smith to all our friends!

Donna Harp

Hillary's knowledge and expertise in the local real estate market make her the ideal Realtor. She assisted us with all the fine details which ultimately led to a successful sale. I would highly recommend Hillary to others.

If you are in the Austin area and need a Realtor, look no further than Hillary Smith. I wish I could give her more than five stars. Hillary was prompt in communication (this is crucial in the home buying process, and she is on top of it). She had great listening skills and listened to our criteria and presented many options that fit our needs. Hillary is friendly and provides professional service. It was fun looking at houses with Hillary, and she has an exceptional eye for detail and is extremely knowledgeable. Thanks to Hillary we are fully satisfied with our new home.

Becca Beck

Service at it's finest. Under normal circumstances, relocation can be a daunting task. Hillary and her team took multiple weekends, showing us numerous houses to help us find the perfect home. She took the time to get to know us not only as a client but as a family. Taking into consideration my wife, children (and my needs), we were able to narrow down so many options and look at the important things to us. Should we need to find another home again, we will gladly enjoy working with her still. Always professional and extremely personable, she took the pain and fear out of moving for us.

Hillary was fantastic to work with, making the entire process of finding and buying a home from a distance as smooth and stress-free as possible. Trying to find the right house when you don't know the area is difficult. Hillary helped us find the best neighborhoods for our needs and then hone in on the homes we'd be most likely to enjoy. She is knowledgeable, supportive, and fun to work with, and she took the time to make sure we always had the information we needed. I highly recommend her.

Hillary is a great person to work with; she's awesome at her job, is completely trustworthy and enjoyable. She spent over six months working with us to find the right home. We first engaged her while we were still living in London, but knew that our move to Austin was imminent. She was easy to work with remotely, and when we finally arrived in Austin, she proved to be just as great as we had expected. Her schedule is flexible to fit yours, and she's attentive and quick to respond and set up viewings. We highly recommend her!

I am so glad I answered my phone when Hillary contacted me regarding my interest in a property! She has been great to work with through the many aspects of finding a home. Hillary is also a great consult for design (another area of her expertise), and Hillary always tries to attend meetings with the builder to make sure that my experience in building/buying this home goes well! She is a reliable partner in the entire process, and her knowledge and expertise has made this so easy for me. I trust and value her!

Hillary was great to work with! She was very professional yet easy to talk to. Hillary helped make the process of house shopping to house buying much easier than I expected it to be. She was very accommodating with our questions, needs and wants. Her responses to our questions and inquiries were always on time. Thank you for helping us find our own piece of Austin!

Hillary was awesome! I was looking for someone that was patient and also made the process fun. When I found something that I wanted to look at, she was making appointments to get us in quickly (especially important with the market right now). She tried to make sure that I was comfortable throughout the process and got my questions answered by the seller and seller's Realtor. She was knowledgeable about the areas in North Austin and even had good advice regarding soil, foundation and home resales in the area. I was especially thankful one night as she spent over 30 minutes going over the home inspection report with me to make sure I had a good idea of the costs associated so that I could make the appropriate requests for improvement. The closing was seamless! I would highly recommend her. Even months after the closing, she emails to see how things are going!

Hillary did a great job. She explained everything, returned my calls and kept me updated throughout the whole process. She was with me during signing all the paperwork and explained the areas that I did not understand. She also made contact with me after all the papers were signed and I was in my new place. Hillary wanted to make sure I had everything and if I had any questions. She is a professional, and I would recommend Hillary to my family and friends.

After a lengthy divorce, a long drive from California and despite a round of illnesses due to the new Texas heat Hillary Smith was my angel. Once I arrived here I was forced to stay in a Motel 6, but Hillary sat down with me, listened to what I wanted, and what I wished for in my retirement and then delivered. After looking at four houses in one day about a week after I arrived, I picked a house that had all I had asked for and a number of the things I wished for. Hillary then helped negotiate a lower price that could accommodate my limited retirement income. I was able to use shortened escrow time to visit family, reacquaint with old college friends, and purchase some new furniture for the new house. Having bought 2 condos and two houses earlier in my life, I was not looking forward to the experience again, but Hillary made it, quick, painless, and even fun. Hillary was easy to contact, and though it wasn't necessary to spend a lot of time together over the few weeks before I moved in, she kept me appraised of so many things I didn’t have to do from inspections to minor repairs. While I don't anticipate ever having to purchase another house, should the need arise my first and I hope the last call would be to Hillary Smith.
