About Tina Smith
This is why you should work with Tina.
Tina Smith is a Residential & Commercial Realtor, ranging from multimillion-dollar Estate properties to first-home purchases to office and multi-residential apartment buildings. Being a California Native, one of Tina's greatest assets is her comprehensive knowledge of all the best neighborhoods and their offerings, from the San Fernando Valley to the Westside.
Tina has been a Realtor since 2003 and currently resides in Toluca Lake with her husband David and several rescue animals, where they purchased a home and became actively involved with the community in 2006. Her love of the area was due to many factors, but primarily the beauty of the older classic architecture from the 1920s that is becoming more challenging to find in the San Fernando Valley.
Tina's hands-on approach, determination, strong work ethic, accessibility and exceptional communication, problem-solving and negotiation skills together have made her a top producer in her field, consistently ranking within the top 10 agents in her office since 2009. Additionally, in 2012, Tina received the prestigious title of Estate Director, for selling multiple properties over $3,000,000 within a three-year period, being the only female in her office to receive this honor.
Tina's schooling was all in the local area—Walter Reed Jr. High, North Hollywood High, and she graduated from Woodbury University in Burbank with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1996. Tina's local ties to the area have proven to be one of the key components to her success, as she has amazing business contacts and a sizable sphere of contacts that she has built throughout the years and stayed in close contact with.
Tina's patience, knowledge and expertise in her field has amassed an overwhelming base of devoted clients as well as a substantial referral network upon which she has built her business, particularly in the entertainment industry. She effortlessly guides her clients through the escrow process with finesse and the understanding that buying or selling a home is usually a person's largest lifetime investment. While this can be a serious and stressful time for buyers and sellers, Tina's clients have often commented on how fun process was due to how relaxed she made them feel with her down-to-earth personality and great sense of humor.
Tina also physically and monetarily helps various charities, specifically cancer research and animal-related charities and rescues. At the close of every transaction, Tina rescues at least one animal through S.T.A.R.T. which is pulled from a California shelter and transported to a safe haven in Oregon, where it resides until a permanent loving home is found. Saving a life that cannot save its own is her passion!
