We recently sold our home in Thousand Oaks with the expert assistance of Ruthie and Mark Smith. I cannot recommend them highly enough! They were extremely knowledgeable, hard-working, and had excellent communication skills. Ruthie consistently went above and beyond to make the process of selling a home as stress-free as possible, which I deeply appreciated since we had recently had our third child and needed to pack up and move soon after he was born. She was very proactive, reaching out to us frequently and did a wonderful job of launching a public media campaign, obtaining beautiful photos of the home including a 3D tour, hosting a successful open house, and making sure everything moved forward in a timely fashion. She and her team were truly a pleasure to work with. Look no further if you need a realtor in the Thousand Oaks area! Within a few days of listing our home, we had multiple offers and sold our house soon afterward.

Mark and Ruth are among the few real estate professionals in whom I would put my full confidence and trust. They are both competent and caring and will go the extra mile to make sure that their clients are taken care of and happy. I have used them twice before and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is looking for honest, competent help from a realtor.

Our first home purchase was made possible because of Marks knowledge and understanding of how the home mortgagee business works. In 1981 we bought a home that we wanted but thought it would never be ours. We live there happily for twelve years. Our family grew and we have stayed with Mark and Ruthie Smith through the years. I recently bought my first investment property and would have not trusted that transaction to anyone but Mark and Ruthie. They are honest, passionate and caring.

Okay, where do I start? Mark and Ruthie are seriously the BEST team. Mark helped us buy our very first home four years ago, and he kept in touch with us afterwards, and would check in just to say hi! Now that we have a family and are looking for more space, he helped us sell our current condo and buy a gorgeous home in a killer neighborhood. Not once did I wonder "Where is Mark? Why hasn't he returned my call?" His professionalism, attention to detail and dedication to his clients is beyond wonderful. Let me just stress that this escrow was certainly a challenge, but Mark and Ruthie were there to navigate through the craziness. We are so grateful to both of them for being so wonderful. Mark is not only one of the kindest people you will ever meet, but he can be very assertive and get things done. I could always trust that he would be honest with us, and wasn't just out to make a sale. There was one house that we were on the fence about and he was so kind and told us that he could tell we didn't love it, and that we should wait for "the one." The very next day, we found our place. How many realtors would do that?! Amazing. We love him so much and he will be our first call when we decide to move next!

Mark was awesome throughout my entire purchase experience.He was attentive and responsive and I would highly recommend him.He knows the area well and made sure to get the answers I needed even if that meant doing some research to help me feel comfortable.

Mark and Ruthie are integrity-based real estate experts who are focused on getting you what is best for you and your family. Their expertise and broad-based skills help you prepare, sell and buy a home. With full transparency, I felt empowered to make the best decisions to translate my "wish list" to goals and, finally, reality for my family. I highly recommend joining with this powerful team.

I could not have imagined having more reliable and helpful professionals representing me. They made this process as painless as possible and were by my side every step of the way, even when it was outside of normal realtor duties. The absolute best and a blessing helping my family relocate from overseas!!!!! I strongly recommend Mark and Ruthie to anyone who wants A+ quality.

- Jenn Jackson

I would recommend Mark to anyone wanting a friendly, knowledgeable, conscientious broker. He was on top of all current real estate available meeting my needs. He knew the area I wanted and alerted me to a home the same day it was placed on the market. I was the 2nd client to view the home, made an offer and was accepted that day. I am a very happy first time home owner!

- Radar

Mark was extremely professional and responsive. He provided listings regularly, followed up daily, and was always available. He was assertive with sellers and offered great suggestions for finding a home in our desired neighborhood. In a very hot market, we were able to find our dream home in just 2 weeks. We could not have done it without Mark. I would recommend Mark to anyone looking for a home.

- Anne Barronton

We love Mark Smith!!! He's a very professional realtor and we would definitely call him a good friend. He always return our calls and helped find the right house for us. He works with us to make our dreams of becoming a first time homeowners come true. Thank you so much for everything Mark D. Smith. We highly recommend Mark D. Smith for everyone.

The best way to describe Mark Smith is dedication, loyalty, conviction. Mark listed a property for me two years ago. I have realist-ed the same property with Mark last week with the market changing and more adaptable to my needs. Mark is the Realtor that we all dream about where he goes the extra mile and more. When you say 110% with Mark you get 210%. Always upbeat and thinking out of the box to get the most money out of your listing or the best competitive price if you are a buyer. Mark has been a Realtor in this community for over 35 years. If you meet with him or talk with him and the phone you will understand how impressive and motivated he is with his clients. Sounds cliche but you will be sold on the first phone call.

Mark has extensive knowledge of the Conejo Valley real estate market. He took the time to show us multiple homes over several months in 2007 as we relocated from another area of Ventura county. We would recommend Mark to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.

Mark help us to purchase a house in Woodlands in 2012. We would always schedule appointments and pick us up from our house to visit home. Explain and did comparing of the houses we were interested in buying. Advance us on how much to bid for the house too. Every professional in dealing with email or telephone calls. Always responding to my questions as a first time buyer. When we were ready to bid on the house he would come to our house and discuss with us. Never forcing any issues on us. He took us around for at least 3 months before we finally decided on the house to buy. He was patient with us. He let us take our time in deciding. We were very please with his service.

Mark is a wonderful agent who has honesty and integrity. He takes time to learn the likes and dislikes of his customers and will work with you to find the right place for you. I've bought and sold a couple properties with Mark and wouldn't hesitate to go to him again.

- James Lim

Simply put Mr. Smith deserves 5 out of 5 stars. I refer friends and co-workers to Mark because he is honest, VERY knowledgeable, a top producer for Troop for over 20 years + kind and patient. I only write reviews about people I actually believe in. I had a difficult sale of my Ventura property and Mark made it happen, and found a great home for me in Thousand Oaks. Since then he has successfully assisted several of my friends/co-workers. Thanks Mark!

It is with pleasure and gratitude that we recommend Mark Smith who recently listed and sold our home. We owned a unique property, making it very challenging to find the right buyer. Mark's exceptional grasp of the real estate market, his attention to detail, and his kind understanding did much to make the difficult process much easier. Mark worked closely and patiently with us, and his calm reassurance and expert advice led to a successful negotiation with our buyer and a most satisfying result for us as sellers. We appreciated that, through every step of the way, Mark was looking out for our best interests. We highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs.

Mark is the best! He sold our condo and helped us find a great home that we are very happy in. He is very honest and hard working, and helped put any of our anxieties at ease with his kindness & patience. We definitely recommend working with him!

- Lauren Scott

I have used Mark many times over the past 35 years to purchase and sell real estate. His integrity is unparalleled and he is very conscientious and respectful. I highly recommend Mark whether you need to buy real estate or you need to sell real estate.

Mark was incredibly helpful and professional throughout our entire transaction. He found creative solutions to our problems and challenges - we were thoroughly impressed. It was also obvious to us that he is a very ethical person and that was displayed in the way he communicated with us and the buyers. It was also very helpful, the amount of leg work he did, because we were out-of-state sellers. Highly recommended by us! Give him a call!
