John & Kathy Murtha
- Thank you Smiley & Marlene for getting our house sold in under 30 days in this tough buyers market.  We definitely made the right choice in realtors by selecting you two - you went the extra mile to accomplish the perfect end result.  Your thoroughness was greatly appreciated!  It was our pleasure getting to

know you and Marlene.

Bryan & Brooke Eggimann - We were extremely pleased with the services provided by Smiley & Marlene to sell our home in a suppressed market.  They aggressively showed our home & kept us informed, which made us feel connected & involved.  They were always available to do what ever it takes to make it happen.  Our listing with them was stress free & very professional - catching the attention of many realtors, who almost daily brought buyers

through our home.  We cannot thank them enough for getting the job done on time.  If we had it to do over again we would definitely choose them - they were a pleasure to work with.

Diana Joyce - Dear Smiley & Marlene, I sincerely thank you both for working so hard on my behalf to sell my house.  You have worked harder & put more effort into selling this house than any other agent I have ever had work for me before.  I have sold several homes in the past & never received so much help from anyone.  In my absence you made all the arrangements for what needed to be done - organizing of service professionals to repair & stage the home.  I can honestly say that this is the first time that I don’t mind paying an agent a commission because of your diligence & the excellent service I received in return.

Michael Allende - Keller Williams® Realtor from Homestead, Orlando - My Orlando client asked me to refer her to a top to Brandon realtor to sell her Tampa property.  My online research listed Smiley in the top 10Further analysis placed Smiley on my top 3 short list.  My in depth research of these top 3 showed Smiley to be a top producer who gives great personal & professional service - his understanding of the current Real Estate market sets him apart - plus he gets good results in a tough buyers market.  So I referred my Orlando client to Smiley who didn’t let me down - he sold her home in 7 days in this tough buyers market.  Good job partner!!!

Brian Mest - The new home you found me is such an amazing deal - it's the precious diamond that your persistent searching uncovered.  I thank you for all of your assistance - you have gone above and beyond.  I can't stop talking about this house and am still in awe - the price / location / design / extra's - it is all great and then some.  How can I ever thank you?

Shawn & Janet Doucet - I would definitely recommend Smiley to anyone looking for the right home and the perfect deal.  We looked for a house on our own for over 2 years through web-sites and other contacts, but when we enlisted the help of Smiley, we were able to narrow down the search and find our perfect home fairly quickly.  He was always available to show us homes within our busy schedule and he really broke down the numbers to help us understand the bottom line.  He really followed through on his commitment to help us find our wonderful new home at the right price and he supported us through the process to closing.  He is the ‘Number Crunching King’ and an excellent example of how persistence pays off.

Teresa Rojek, Master Home Stager - As a Home Stager, I have worked with several different and competent professional realtors.  In this market, I have assisted realtors whose client’s properties have languished on the market for months - I help their client’s improve the property’s condition and subsequently the properties have sold.  As such, I have occasion to work with and observe several realtors, to see how they market the property and the advice they offer their client’s regarding the condition of the property. 

I have come to appreciate Smiley Papenfus of Keller Williams as a superlative realtor - he is very proficient in his trade.  From my observation, Smiley’s multi-faceted approach always gets good results - his staged listings sell in good time, not in multiple-months as I’ve seen with others. 

Smiley is a superior internet marketer and as he calls himself the “number crunching king”.  Smiley does his research and absolutely, positively KNOWS what the market will bear on any given property - as such, he can confidently offer his clients the very best guidance as they make these crucial decisions in the marketing of their property. 

Finally, Smiley addresses condition first and foremost with all his clients – his properties are well prepared BEFORE they hit the market which sells them in good time – a true testament to Smiley’s proficiency as a professional. 

At one time I was a licensed realtor and as a result have a very high standard for those in the trade.  I can, with confidence, offer the high praise for Smiley’s abilities.  I have recommended him to family, neighbors & friends and will continue to do so without hesitation.
