Testimonials (25)

Paul and Penny, I didn't find a way to indicate the stars, but I would certainly give you both 5 of them. You folks have always made yourselves available to answer any questions and kept us up to date on what was happening.....and in a most timely fashion. With all the delays and frustrations we have experienced, you have moved through them in a positive manner which kept our spirits from flagging. My whole family and I thank you for your professionalism and your warm friendship. May your season be peaceful and filled with joy. Cordette Cordette Grimsey
Penny and Paul Smyth were exceedingly helpful and knowledgeable about selling our house and considerate of our needs. We could not ask for a better selling experience. Laurie E Sulger
Paul and Penny Smyth were exceptional to work with. They went above and beyond and helped me navigate a very challenging experience of selling a home that was inherited. I am forever grateful for all they did and couldn’t have asked for better representation. Anthony, Theodore, Matthew, Timothy Powaleny
Words cannot convey my gratitude for the work done by Paul and Penny Smyth in the marketing and selling of my late father's house and property . Their knowledge of the real estate market and ability to promote sales were beyond my expectations and their years of experience, along with familiarity of the town and community were always readily apparent. We will eagerly recommend them to friends interested in purchasing or selling property in that area of the state. Estate of David L Downs
Penny and Paul are masters of their craft, would highly reccomend. Theodore E Powaleny
Great folks cannot get any better. The company is lucky to have them. Charles F Dimmock Jr with Gary Alligood as POA
Paul and Penny Smyth were great agents who offered a mixture of talent that complimented each other and made our experience a good one. Michelle K Horan
Paul and Penny Smyth exceeded all my expectations as realtors for the sale of my home, which was off market. So they were not involved in the marketing. But they were so very helpful in the process of preparing the house for the buyers' walkthrough. I had lived in there for over 50 years and had an incredible amount of "stuff." They were understanding and very actively helped me in in the process of discarding, packing, and moving things to my new home. Their help went far beyond what anyone could have expected. They were like friends: loading and driving a borrowed pickup truck to make donations, moving countless boxes to my new residence, after helping pack them and then unload them. These realtors are generous, kind, and absolutely trustworthy. They totally deserve the accolades they have received on your website. I would suggest gold rather than silver! Janis L Solomon, Trustee
We were extremely satisfied with the marketing strategy and quick sale of our home. This is the second home Paul and Penny Smyth have sold for us. We could not be happier and will continue to rely on their expertise in the future when buying or selling a home. PSK Coastal LLC
Our 5th home purchase - and the smoothest transaction yet - all thanks to Paul Garry D and Mara I Johnson
Great realtor! I highly recommend him. Jane Downs

Paul and Penny Smyth were very understanding and responsive to our concerns and worked very hard during the process of selling our house. They were by far the best real estate agents we have worked with over many years and several houses. A big thank you to Paul and Penny and congratulations on such excellence and success! Owen N and Lynne M Charles
Realtors were very knowledgeable about the area and that helped educate the potential buyers. Paul was responsive and communicated with us well. Kim Estate of William B. Paradis, Kim Blanchard, Kristian Paradis
We have successfully engaged Paul and Penny Smyth in either the sale or purchase of our homes five times. Obviously, repeat customers are a very good indicator of overall satisfaction and our last home sale was no exception. Accordingly, we would highly recommend them to potential customer. Peter J and Kathleen D Bergeron
We have been working with Paul Smythe for over 20 years on 2 properties in Stonington. He was able to find the perfect buyer for a very unique home. The stars aligned and the perfect buyers have purchased the property and it is a perfect fit for them. Roger W. and Cheryl L Preston
I could not be happier with the passion and commitment shown by Penny and Paul. I truly was at ease knowing they were there for me and my questions. At no time at all we’re they not answering my questions. I would recommend them and the company to family and or friends. Can’t thank them enough Angela Harley
Frankly, it is difficult, indeed, to list all the reasons for recommending Wm Pitt Sotheby's, in particular Paul Smyth and his partner Penny Smyth. The combined efforts of these professionals were reassuring to us as we were led through the daunting tasks of selling our home during this horrific Pandemic. I don't believe we would have attempted this endeavor were it not for this particular team, in all honesty! The combined expertise, grace and commitment to our goal is commendable. Each of them were always and reliably available to assist us throughout the process of selling and then purchasing our new home. The care and consideration for our well being and safety during this entire process was what made it possible to put our home on the market.. It really is difficult to put into words the amount of support these two have generously offered us. We are grateful, to put it mildly. James R Nestor and Eleanor McClelland
MILLION DOLLAR SEVICE Professional, knowledgeable, and just countless extras to make your home stand out. They were very down to earth and easy to communicate and work with. Attentive to your schedule and routines and what you place value in, they are very intuitive to meet what your desires are. I would without any hesitation highly recommend Smyth Realty Team to represent you whether you are buying or selling. Charles J and Kelly M Kohlhofer
My agents were very helpful and supportive. Judith Elen Shosie, Revocable Trust
We worked with Paul and Penny Smyth: outstanding in every way. We have worked with many realtors over the years, and they are the best. Can’t recommend them highly enough Richard L and Gail L Rosseau
Paul and PENNY Smyth went above and beyond to help me both sell my townhouse and locate a new place. They replied quickly to questions and concerns. Even my neighbors commented on how personable they were and careful re: Pandemic protocols. Anne Simpkinson
My husband and myself definitely recommend Paul Smyth as an excellent realtor. His knowledge and research into the local competition was excellent. He was a master of the process involved in selling a house. These two factors resulted in his selling our house within a week of putting it on the market. He was immediately responsive to the needs of both the buyer and ourselves. His advice and assistance in negotiating the price of the house were right on. He was invaluable in coordinating, executing, and handling the inspections needed to bring the property up to code. He did so at a time when we were unable to handle these things ourselves. We are indebted to him for all the help and support he extended to us in this regard. annehaddad1
My agent Paul Smyth was well informed and very helpful from start to finish. He went above and beyond my expectations of a real estate agent. Two thumbs up. Peter M. Smyth
We sold a high end home for full price in 90 days in a slow market. Paul and Penny provided a level of service that went far beyond what we had any right to expect. I was first amazed when Penny came over for two full days to help me stage the house for professional photography (my back was injured at the time). Paul was present for EVERY showing, and he could recite details on each and every feature of the house. After the sale, Paul guided us every step of the way. I was especially impressed that he took on the burden of coordinating with external contractors for some code-required work prior to the sale. I cannot praise Paul and Penny highly enough. They provide a level of service and expertise that soars way above expectations. Our close friends referred them. As I type this, two close friends have their homes listed with Paul, and they're having the same excellent sales experience. I just wish Paul was licensed in NC, so he could help me sell my next home when that day comes. scott stephenson mailbox
