A winning team The Realtors of The Michelle Smith Team join forces to work their magic
By sandy turner
ichelle Smith, Realtor with Reece and Nichols, firmly believes in the old adage of two eyes are better than one. By developing The Michelle Smith Team the goal of providing superior services to homebuyers and sellers has been met and exceeded through four pairs of expert eyes. Michelle, along with Karen Cragg, Janice Cunha and Lisa Lewis have enhanced their role as Realtors to benefit their clients in the areas of marketing, transaction coordination, feedback and follow-up as they truly embrace the team concept. Wanting to service every need for their clients, the team also offers cleaning services and staging for those wanting to sell their homes. “We are confident in each other’s abilities and in return the client can be assured that no matter who is handling their request or concern, it will be done in a timely manner and by a professional,” Smith said. “The team concept not only benefits our clients, but it provides us with the peace of mind that it’s business as usual if we are away from the office.” As a team, they promptly return inquiries from prospective buyers or their agents while potential problems are avoided during the closing process because one of them is always available. “Each person on the team offer their professional expertise in a specific area,” she said. “The diversity we bring to the table offers clients the opportunity to buy or sell a home in an environment that promotes less stress and we make sure to have some fun along the way.” The team of four, generating positive energy while staying focused on the ever-changing marketplace, has committed to give their clients ultimate customer service. “We are real estate,” Cragg said who’s been a Realtor for the past 13 years. “After working as an individual agent, I’m very excited what the team has to offer, not only to me but for our clients.” Cragg, with a background in finance and banking offers expert advice on short sales and foreclosures. “There isn’t any kind of transaction that The Michelle Smith Team can’t handle successfully,” she said. Recently joining the team, Janice Cunha has been a Realtor for seven years and offers the team an extensive background in customer service and relations. “I truly enjoy working with first time homebuyers,” she said. “There are so many different programs available that can enable people to purchase their first home. We are here to help, guide, coach and mentor to help make those dreams of owning your own home come true.”
The Michelle Smith Team welcomes Janice Cunha, a specialist working with first time homebuyers. For the past six years, Lisa Lewis has successfully built her real estate career through her passion for assisting homebuyers and sellers. Lisa, who is also an EMT, brings another level of customer service to the team. “We are connected to the community and to our clients,” Smith said. “Not only in person but through Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. Whether we’re marketing a house to be sold or looking for the perfect home, we have the tools to do it right.” Smith, a native of New York, has been a Re-
altor for the past 13 years, coming to the real estate industry after having served the public as a policewoman in Lee’s Summit. “From new construction to resale, foreclosures to short sales, the Michelle Smith Team can accommodate,” she said. “We will work around your schedule and availability, and that’s the advantage of being able to hire four Realtors, for the price of one.” For more information call any of the members of The Michelle Smith Team at 229-6391 or 655-6615.
