During the Housing Bubble in 2005, buying and selling homes was easy. It did not require any special skills to put together a deal and the number of Realtors in Arizona hit record highs. After the bubble burst and home prices plummeted, many of these realtors left the business and many home buyers and sellers found themselves in trouble. In 2008, I decided to leave the Service Industry where I was owner and manager, and apply my skills to helping people in with Real Estate.
Being a single parent who had just lost both parents to Cancer I had empathy for people in duress. Working with my parents estate I felt I could help other people that were going through similar experiences. 5 years later, I am proud to say that I was not only successful in helping people with their Real Estate, but I can count theses clients among my closest friends. It is my sincere interest in their needs that has become the foundation of these friendships.
On January 14, 2000 HomeSmart Real Estate announced its Grand Opening to the Phoenix marketplace with only two Agents. A reputation for advanced technologies soon followed. As a result, HomeSmart rapidly developed into one of Arizona's fastest growing Real Estate brokerages. With a commitment to its Agents and Clients, HomeSmart grew to over 1700 Agents, and Franchises in Arizona and California by 2007 and in 2010 now has over 3700 agents.
Today, HomeSmart is the largest independently owned brokerage in the Southwestern United States and climbing!
HomeSmart's success can be attributed to Owner and President, Matt Widdows. In the early 1990's Matt created a computer company that utilized innovative technologies to develop an accounts management program for the medical industry. After selling that company, Matt obtained his real estate license and began working in the industry.
Matt recognized the opportunity to bring his technological expertise into real estate and the idea of HomeSmart was born. He created a company built around technology so that Agents could have cutting edge tools, a professional meeting and working enviroment, and efficiencies that would give them more time to focus on their Clients and their business.
HomeSmart continues to be a leader in the Real Estate industry by implementing technologies that empower its Agents to provide the most effective services available to Clients. I am proud to be affiliated with this industry leader.
It's a Smart Move...with HomeSmart!
