Client Reviews

"Bonnie went above and beyond for my family. Her services were exceptional and included special attention, a stager, an excellent photographer, contacts for all repairs, etc. Our house had an excellent offer within 12 hours of going live because of the hard work she put in on the front end. Then, for buying, she listened to what we wanted and didn't give up on finding us the perfect new home! Highly recommend!"

"Bonnie Howington Smith grew up in a distinguished real estate family where the tradition of excellence in service was a standard. Bonnie inherited her grandmother and real estate mogul Ray Howington's eye for detail and heart for putting the client's needs first!"

"We recently used Bonnie to sell our home in Forsyth County. She was beyond great to work with. Her professionalism and attention to detail made our entire process extremely smooth. Bonnie always made sure to respond when we contacted her and would often check in just to make sure everything was going well. She not only looked out for our interests but worked so well with the buyer's agent that our selling process was seamless. We would highly recommend her and also choose her first should we sell again in the future."

"Bonnie made the very stressful and confusing process of buying a home (while working full-time with kids at home during COVID-19 AND moving from a different state!) fast, simple and hassle-free! Because of Bonnie’s vast and deep knowledge of the massive Metro Atlanta area, we were able to find the perfect home after just eight hours of looking. Moreover, and because of Bonnie’s keen negotiation skills, we were able to offer, contract and close on our new home in less than one month. Finally, and thanks to Bonnie’s incredible network of home improvement professionals, we were able to receive multiple bids and outstanding references – enabling us to hire a contractor, subs, painters and a designer who began renovating our new home just three days after closing. Bonnie, not an assistant or a receptionist, personally put in the hours and drove the entire process – from researching and shopping to negotiating, closing, renovating and move-in – to ensure our family had a truly flawless experience. We cannot recommend Bonnie more highly than we do; we will definitely encourage all of our family members, friends and colleagues to enlist Bonnie’s help with buying or selling their Metro Atlanta homes."

"We knew of Bonnie through our daughter, who had recently worked with Bonnie to buy a larger home and then sell her previous home. So we started 'just looking ...', liking the area near our daughter's new home but having a long list of 'must have's' before we would buy/sell. Her patience and perseverance led us to our new home, which is perfect. And was she patient! Bonnie is nothing short of amazing. She exceeded all expectations, both in helping us find the perfect new home and selling our previous home. We recommend Bonnie to help find or sell your home. The level of service she provides is outstanding."

Mary Ann and Mark Austin

"Bonnie is a phenomenal REALTOR®, a real force of nature when it comes to selling your home! She's a bundle of energy and action and didn't stop until our house was sold in only 12 days. She's assertive with homeowners and sales tactics alike, and even when we didn't agree with her initially, she convinced us her way was the best way and she was right every time. I challenge anyone who wants to sell their home in record time to find a better REALTOR® than Bonnie. I would hire Bonnie in a heartbeat to either buy or sell a home, she's just that great."

Lesley Badowski

"By far the best agent we ever had. Buying a new home, especially in a new area is a daunting process. Bonnie guided us through every step of the way and went to bat for us even after the closing. If you want to find the perfect house in the best neighborhood for you and your family, have Bonnie on your side."

Jonathan Rockett

"Of all the REALTORS® in the Greater Atlanta area, we feel like we found the very best in Bonnie. She helped us buy our house in Duluth for a bargain-basement price and sell it for a 30% higher price only two years later. Every step of the process, she went above and beyond her job description to help us secure the best deal in the shortest amount of time. Her superb level of expertise, responsiveness, and positivity made the experience as stress-free as it could have possibly been. My husband and I can't recommend her services more highly."

Ashley Rabinovitch

"It’s a pleasure to offer my unreserved recommendation for Bonnie H. Smith. I’ve known Bonnie now for just over a year, having worked with her to sell our current home and to find our new property. Bonnie has always demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism and competence in real-estate and has successfully guided us through the difficult and stressful process of selling and buying our new property. After meeting with Bonnie to discuss our goals she quickly developed a strategy to help us achieve our objectives. Not only did she help us develop a strategy for selling our home but she also had an amazing network of contractors and contacts to help us execute our strategy in the most cost-effective manner. Bonnie is an extremely effective communicator and has an awesome personality and demeanor that sets her apart from others in her field. My wife and I will continue to stay in touch with her for years to come."

"Bonnie Howington Smith grew up in a distinguished real estate family where the tradition of excellence in service was a standard. Bonnie inherited her grandmother, real estate mogul, Ray Howington’s eye for detail and heart for putting the client’s needs first!"

Valerie Levin

"As a first time home buyer who knew very little about the entire home buying process, I could not have asked for a better REALTOR® to go through the process with than Bonnie. She guided me through the entire process, and helped me to take into consideration factors I would have never thought to even think about on my own. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the home buying process and homes in general. She was a great help in helping me to recommend different lenders and what to look for in each. Bonnie goes above and beyond for her clients to make herself available and to assist in any way possible. I highly recommend Bonnie for anyone looking for their next home!"

Hanien Husain

“We relocated from Indiana after living there all of our lives. Bonnie immediately gave us a level of comfort with the entire process. She was excellent when it came to researching options in our price range and we had plenty of options. We had one weekend to look and make an offer and we were completely prepared. She kept us up-to-date on all of the processes to follow with inspection, surveying, repairs, negotiations, etc. There was never a time we didn’t have access to her to have our questions answered and put our minds at ease. She also helped negotiate an earlier closing time than originally schedules due to complicated travel and work schedules on our end. She was awesome and we would highly recommend her!”

Christy and Jonathan Sandmaier

"Absolutely the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Bonnie went above and beyond to prepare us for listing our house, and her marketing of our unique property was exceptional. From the staging to the video, it was all incredibly professional and impressive. Bonnie was always available to answer questions and calm our nerves. Her patience was a godsend! May I also add that she sold our house in less than two weeks?!? My husband and I highly recommend her."

Gretchen and Skip Hinshaw

"We had been looking for a year or so, casually. When she spotted the perfect house for us she urged us to see it- We put in a contingent offer that was accepted and she worked tirelessly to get our current home on the market in one week."

Johanna Morgan

"Bonnie Smith was an angel to me during the process of selling my home. After being in my house for 25 years, the thought of doing this by myself was overwhelming! Bonnie was able to walk me through the process from beginning to end! She brought in a multitude of tradesmen from painters and carpet cleaners, to a handyman, designer and stager. My house never looked so good. The marketing strategy was top notch and I was able to receive multiple offers within the first 10 days on the market. I can't say enough about Bonnie's professionalism and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the best realty experience out there!"

Christine Terrell

"Bonnie is AMAZING! She is experienced and knowledgeable as well as friendly and easy to like. She is the best agent I have worked with after many personal and commercial real estate closings. She is organized, attentive and VERY fast to respond. Her knowledge and experience make her invaluable when looking for or selling your property. I would HIGHLY recommend her as a REALTOR® to anyone. You will not be disappointed."

Jennifer and Chad King

"Bonnie is a very good listener and knows exactly what you are looking for. She took the time to eliminate properties she knew we wouldn't like. She also went above and beyond to make sure we got the best deal possible."

Soulaima Dennawi and Hani El Shawa

“Bonnie Smith went above and beyond for us! She handled the purchase of our new home as well as the sale of our old home. I would actually go through the whole thing all over again if I knew Bonnie was going to handle it all. From staging to painters and repairmen, she had all the resources we needed to sell our house in TWO days and get a full price offer, as well as an offer well above the sales price. She did it all with a smile on her face and always had our best interest at heart. There is no one I would trust more than Bonnie when buying or selling a home!”

Alden and Travis Reding

“Bonnie Smith did an excellent job in helping my fiancé and I find our home where we would like to start our family. We had specific ideas in mind in what we were looking for, and Bonnie helped us find it. She did a wonderful job in finding us as many houses as she could in our price range in the area we were looking for. As we looked at more and more houses, she paid close attention to what we liked about each house and filtered our searches accordingly. She brought a great deal of experience to the table and was able to help make some of the tough decisions and help us keep raw emotions out of the decision. Bonnie felt like a close friend trying to help a close friend out while going through a big decision of our lives. I was very blessed to have had someone like Bonnie help us!.”

David Schrader

“As first-time homebuyers, my fiancé and I needed someone who could play a central role in guiding us through the whole home-buying process and Bonnie was able to fulfill that role. She understood exactly what we were looking for after touring a few homes together and she honed in on the best options for us moving forward. Once we found the home we wanted to buy, she moved quickly and we were closing within weeks of putting in our offer. Bonnie was understanding, reassuring and dedicated. I would recommend her to anyone in the market to buy a house.”

Lindsey Gall

“Are you looking for the perfect real estate agent? Well, you’re in luck because you just found the one! Nothing was scarier than the prospect of buying my first home. Bonnie was able to take all that fear away and truly made the process fun and enjoyable. During the first few minutes of our first meeting, I quickly recognized that Bonnie was incredibly knowledgeable, personable and most importantly, an all-around marvelous person. It was quick to love thy real estate agent. After Bonnie took the time to fully understand my wish list and budget considerations she then carefully walked me through the entire home-buying process. She then set-up an online account that allowed me to preview all the homes that she felt matched my requirements. This account was updated for me DAILY. Any time I had a question about a listing I could always email/text Bonnie and confidently know I would receive a quick and timely reply. Because of my job, my schedule is different every week and I thought this would significantly restrict when I would be able to schedule showings. I was wrong. Bonnie was able to meet with me and show me through every home that I inquired to see around MY schedule. At the beginning of every walk-through, Bonnie would provide a full paper report on the property and go through all considerations that she found during her research. It amazed me how much homework Bonnie would do on each property prior to our walk-throughs. For anyone questioning whether they need a real estate agent I promise their expertise is worthwhile. There were so many nuances and problems that I never would have noticed, in the many properties we looked at, that Bonnie immediately recognized. Bonnie is also not afraid to strongly advise against a property that she didn’t feel would be a wise investment. Even when she knew such news wasn’t what I wanted to hear. I definitely needed some tough love at one point. I’m sure there are plenty of agents that would have taken advantage of my ignorance, allowed me to close, and pocketed their commission. But Bonnie was determined to find me the perfect home and didn’t mind how long or how much work it would take to make that happen. We looked at A LOT of properties. Don’t let Bonnie’s sweet demeanor fool you. She is a beast of a negotiator and once we found the right home she worked hard to get me a great deal and closing terms. We were under a time crunch and Bonnie was able to get all required documents and signatures completed in under an hour. Did I mention this was on a Saturday? The day before closing the home suffered from extensive damage encompassing both floors. You’ll have to have Bonnie tell you the story. The next few days and weeks are when Bonnie really went above and beyond. A new contract, that was beyond complicated, had to be negotiated and what amounted to a near-full remodel had to be supervised. Not only are you only working with Bonnie, but you have access to her whole team. As you can imagine, other persons of expertise, i.e. lawyers, etc., were all integral in bringing a new contract together. Once we finally made it to closing, Bonnie was there before me going through the entire contract one last time to ensure nothing was missed. Bonnie was not afraid to interject at different times during closing to have the closing attorney verify and explain certain aspects that weren’t clear. After closing, Bonnie still keeps in touch and made sure that our move went off without a hitch. There is no mistaking how much Bonnie cares about her clients. I apologize for the melodrama, but I now sincerely view Bonnie more as a friend than someone who was my real estate agent. I couldn’t be more thankful that I chose Bonnie to help me buy my first home. You won’t find an agent with a harder work ethic and expertise in the home-buying process. You have my word that you’ll be just as thankful that you chose Bonnie to represent you and your family in buying your new home!"

Paul Watterson Jr

“Bonnie Smith is an honest, hard-working REALTOR® who responds quickly and addresses your real estate questions or concerns in a timely manner. She is always professional with a great sense of humor. We have enjoyed working with her and appreciate her marketing expertise while selling our townhouse and purchasing our new home. Thanks, Bonnie, for all you do for your clients.”
