Your Real Estate Knowledge Center

About The Knowledge Center

Although I consider myself to be subject matter expert as a generalist in residential real estate, I’m not a niche expert in all fields within the industry.  I want to give you access to what I consider some of the best writing on the various topics in the industry in one organized place.

So I search for and collate the best content I can find and add my bits of introducing commentary. I believe that this does you, the real estate consumer, the best service possible when it comes to an agent providing you with well written and concise information.

Click the Knowledge Center Menu item at the top of the page, read, enjoy and let me know what you think!

Praise For Jim

"Jim Smoak is a great guy! He made sure we understood the process and kept everything running smoothly in a timely manner."

- Terrence Smith

"Jim Smoak was my Realtor and I could not have signed up for better. Jim went above and beyond where most Realtors would go. He had my best interest in mind at all times. I would recommend Mr. Smoak to anyone."

– Karen Reed

"I am so happy I found Jim to help us navigate through purchasing our first home. He gave us lots of advice and aspects to consider that I wouldn't have known without his help. He was extremely patient with helping us find the perfect home that fit every item on our checklist and answered our many many questions with lots of details and helped ease our every concern. As soon as we found THE one he switched gears and became our project manager, helping us stay on track with our mortgage closing and even reminding us of the little things along the way. Our experience with Jim was nothing short of amazing and I would recommend him to everyone I know and will be a return client in the future!"

– Amanda Urban

"Jim did an excellent job serving my real estate needs. He was sharp and thorough and always made sure to keep me in the loop on anything that was going on. He did a great job of providing a lengthy list of potential homes that met my requirements and managed to make my home buying experience quick and easy. I highly recommend Jim because he goes above and beyond and because he takes pride in his work."
