Tell Us Your Story

We worked with Blake and Sonya to sell our home early this year.

This is the first home my wife and I have sold. Blake was very responsive and patient to our questions. Blake helped us through the process and helped with the difficult decisions that you make when selling a home. We enjoyed the service they provided and are thankful for the experience and expertise they brought. Have already recommend Blake and Sonya to a couple of friends looking to move.

Jedd Cherry

I was previously working with an agent that made me feel as if I was on his schedule and I was lucky to have his representation.

He was never available to answer my calls and was very difficult to deal with when I wanted to tour homes. I work in the service industry and as a result am a stickler for customer care. Needless to say… I fired him! After firing my previous agent, I had a family friend refer me to Brooke. She has been an absolute joy to deal with and has gone above and beyond to help me find my dream home. She has been unbelievably attentive and has guided me through this confusing process and has kept (as my husband would put it) neurotic self at ease! We are getting ready to sign the closing paperwork tomorrow and I can honestly say that without Brooke’s help I know this would not have been possible! Thank you so much, I am forever grateful!

Zillow User Jessica Hatch

Cade Erickson was a true pro!

His energy knowledge and dedication to the sale of my home was outstanding. He and his team insured that I was educated and got the best possible deal for my home!

Zillow User user24880569

Blake and Sonya are amazing!

Our house was under contract within 3 days- I was worried we wouldn’t find a place but Blake found and got us into our dream home. They were always going above and beyond and were there every step of the way.

Kylee F.

Cade was a hands on but also gave me space.

He helped me work with the seller to get what I wanted. He was a lot of fun and has a great personality. I never felt any pressure to buy if I did not want the home.

Zillow User zuser20140913194828666

Rob was outstanding to work with!

He was an aggressive negotiator (which I thoroughly appreciated on my limited budget!) One of the qualities I appreciated most about Rob as an agent was his punctuality; whenever I posed a question or concern, Rob’s response was always very timely and accurate (even when I had questions regarding the mortgage side of the transaction, Rob was the one I knew I could count on to uncover the answers). I will absolutely recommend Rob to anyone and everyone I ever come across in need of an outstanding, honest, and fun to work with realtor! I plan to utilize his services for any and all future real estate endeavors. He is EXCEPTIONAL!


Sonya, and now her son, have helped me on several property purchases.

I have worked with her from 2001 to 2015. Masterful, expert, incredibly kind, attentive, VERY RESPONSIVE. I don’t have the vocabulary to express how wonderful these two people are. Sonya understands how to interact with you to meet your particular wants/needs/style. You are different than someone else, and Sonya tailors her response to meet your needs, not demanding the other way around. I cannot recommend her enough.

Eric and Kathy H.

We decided to list our home for sale by owner to save some money.

After a few weeks on the market and no showings, we decided to list with the Smithings after having a positive experience with them in the past. They sold our house in just a couple of days for way more than our original asking price. In the long run, the Smithing group got us way more money for our home. They understand true market value and are very pleasant to work with. We would recommend them to anyone!

Rory and Lori S.

Rob listed a property for me in Roy Utah to sell at the beginning of Feb 2015.

During the listing period of the process the viewings on the property were constant and always well coordinated to meet my daily schedule. After employing a thorough and well discussed negotiation strategy the property was under contract by the end of the month. From inception to closing Rob was in constant communication with me and was quick to respond to any and all challenges throughout the process. Rob is a well rounded professional that is customer service oriented; if you have a property you are considering listing I highly recommend you contact Rob Andre.


I'm so impressed by them and appreciated their expertise so much.

This selling and switching houses in between 3 of us in the neighborhood could have been a mess without Jaci and her team keeping everything "within the lines" and recorded properly. Some friends questioned why we used a realtor since we were all friends. My answer every time was that I wanted all of us to remain friends! Jaci and her team kept us doing the right sale and right purchase in the right order. Without them, we'd have made a mess of it all!!

Nancy Hartog

Rob was phenomenal to work with!

My husband I were picky with what we wanted in our house and Rob was able to deliver exactly what we wanted and more. Thanks Rob!!

Danielle Johnson

Rob was awesome to work with.

He understood my personal schedule and conflicts of dates and worked with that to sell my home. We had a pretty big list of demands to fill for buying a new home and Rob had no problem showing us ALOT of houses and doing so without gripe. When we found our dream home he helped us get through the process and we got everything we hoped for. Thanks Rob!

Chad Yamane

He will make you feel like you have always been friends.

He always keeps you updated on how things are going with the house and he works with your schedule. There is no one better at selling homes!

Zillow User DaveGlen

When we decided to sell our home, many family members and friends warned us that realtors would just take a huge commission and do nothing to earn it.

This is NOT true of Sonya and Blake Smithing! They are what everyone SHOULD have in a realtor: they are knowledgeable, helpful, not pushy at all, respond quickly to all texts, calls and e-mails, and best of all, they are kind and professional. Every interaction we had with them was perfect, from beginning to end. After they sold our home, we were so pleased with how they handled everything that we had them help us find our new home. We recommend Sonya and Blake to everyone we know — they are the real deal! We can’t say enough about how positive this experience was for us. They were nothing short of AMAZING!!!!!

Jennifer Hooton

Cade did an amazing job while negotiating and got us top dollar for our neighborhood.

We would recommend him to anyone.

Zillow User KendraFountain

Rob Andre is an exceptional realtor!

He was our second realtor, our first wasn’t knowledgeable as he is. Rob asked all the right questions to make sure we purchased the right house. When we finally found the right house he informed us daily where we were in the transaction.

Very personable! Love this guy!

Doug Durham

I was with another company when working with Kelly at RE/MAX Community I’ve worked with Kelly for years and observed her working with and for her clients.

In Kelly, her clients really get what they’re paying for, as the client’s interests are always her only priority. Kelly has an infectuous personality and is a delight to be with. You could not ask for a more a more capable professional. She is truly a Realtor Extraordinaire there at RE/Max Community, which is by the way, an exceptional collection of real estate professionals.

Lyle Harbertson

Rob is a awesome agent very knowledgeable and is a stand up guy.

He sold my home quickly just as he said he would, and found my boys and I a new home which fits us perfectly. Rob truly cares about his clients and I would definitely recommend to family and friends .

Shaion Allen

Rob Andre has to be the best realtor that I know.

He listens to what you want and how much you can spend and finds you what you want. He takes care of all problems that come up so you do not have to. He is the most honest, sweetest, fun realtor to deal with. He is always available and knowledgeable about what he is doing. I would fully recommend him to anyone I know. I know that in the future we will be using him again to sell and/or buy another home. He made our first time buying a house very easy and pain free. Thank you again Rob for everything that you did for us we could not be any happier with what we got we love it here.

Amber Muchmore Aycock

Very knowledgeable and would recomend him to anyone.

Knew the area and gave us some helpful information on what to look for and what to avoid.

He is a true professional. He had our house sold; and found our new home within 2 weeks. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends or family to Rob.

Ryan Ingram

Rob was very proactive in finding us a home.

As soon as we contacted him and told him what we were looking for, he quickly found us some homes to see. He was timely and available when returning our calls and emails. He was readily available when we had questions and was very friendly and professional when we spoke with and interacted with him. Rob treated us with respect and we felt very comfortable with him. He spent quite a bit of time with us, and we felt like he truly cared about finding the right place for us. I would highly recommend Rob to other families who are looking to purchase a home.


Rob was superb and my husband and I felt very lucky to have had him as our agent!

! He was friendly and down to earth, but also professional. Even though we weren’t sure if we wanted to buy at the time, Rob spent a huge amount of time in our initial meeting getting to know us and determining our needs. Rob really listened to us and could also read the signs and signals we were giving while looking at houses. During the whole process, he was very quick to respond and was constantly in touch with us. His knowledge of the business, the area and the process made us feel extremely comfortable to work with him right from the start. My husband and I just can’t say enough about Rob and highly recommend him!!


Rob is very knowledgeable and a stand up guy sold my home quickly and found my boys and I a new home, would Definitely recommend to family and friends


Here is my honest review of Cade Erickson: 100% absolute professional realtor.

He is honest and is committed to getting you into the home you desire; no gimmicks and no cheesy sales pitches.

Zillow User okbarnes family

He is easy to work with and is very professional and knowledgeable in the industry.

Zillow User debtree

Kelly is the best there is.

She can find what you want or sale what you have. She’s honest, Good to work with, and cute.

Leanne Hatch Mason

I worked with Blake at Smithing Group and it was an amazing customer service experience.

My wife and I just bought our first home, and felt like the process was seamless and the least bit scary thanks to Blake! Blake was very professional and accommodating when it came to time schedules and looking at homes. He answered every question I could conceive within a matter of minutes of texting or calling (even if I called him at 7 at night!). He knew and understood the process so well, and had such great connections with lending partners and home warranty people that we had all the paper work and prerequisites completed an entire week before our closing deadlines, while saving us a bunch of money! I would recommend the Smithing Group for any of your real estate needs!

Jake Vanderhoof

Rob is awesome!

He helped us sell and buy. He was very professional and knowledgeable with both. He was always available, got back to us quick with answers. Very friendly, makes looking for houses fun even if it’s not at that moment!:) and above all else for me, he was not overbearing or at all the ‘typical realtor’. I wasn’t going to work with a realtor and then we met rob and he was great! He gave me a whole new outlook on realtors and that makes him the best in my book!

Lisa Kellerstrass Szumita

Cade was thorough and informative every step of the way.

He was willing to answer every question and gave sound advice at all times. All paperwork was accurate and updated in a timely manner.

Zillow User dmacdonald25

Sonya and Blake are everything you could want in your realtor.

They are very professional and personable. We were very grateful for how quick they were at getting back to us on any questions or concerns that we had throughout the looking and buying process. They worked their tails off to help us find our dream home and we couldn’t have been happier. They treated us like family and looked out for our well being above all throughout the entire experience. i know that they have a lot of clients, but they always made us feel like we were their only one or most important. They were so helpful to us, I can’t imagine how difficult it would have been without them. I highly recommend them, they will go above and beyond for you, as they did for us.

Taylor Puffer

Cade has been absolutely extraordinary!

He is professional and prompt.

Zillow User user10281263

Could not have imagined an easier person to work with.

Was always willing to take my call and answer any questions that I had. We were looking for something smaller that would not be a permanent fix and within hours they had multiple places for us to choose from. They found exactly what I was looking for.

Tanner H.

After dealing with various rude and persistent real estate professionals, I was lucky enough to find Brooke.

Brooke was an absolute joy to work with. As a young, first time home buyer, I had many concerns. Brooke always took the time to explain everything in detail, answer my endless questions, and never made me feel stupid or belittled. She was available at any time of day, went out of her way to make sure I felt like I was being well represented, and frequently met with me after “business hours” to get the job done. I feel extremely lucky to have been represented by Brooke. She is extremely knowledgable, friendly to a fault, and has many valuable connections. Any individual who is looking to buy the right home will find the perfect representative in Brooke.

Zillow User zuser20140309201632335

Cade is very knowlegable, professional and deligent in following through with what he says he will do, on numerous ocassions Cade went way above the call of his duties to help me out.

Cade is by far the best realtor we have used.

We have worked with him on both buying and selling properties and have been extremely pleased with the results in both scenarios.

Zillow User starbellysneech1

We have recommended Cade to family and friends who are considering selling or purchasing a home as our confidence in his ability to understand our need and work to meet our expectations is outstanding.

Zillow User user0708984

We highly recommend Rob Andre!

He is an excellent realtor and went above and beyond to help us with our needs. Rob was very patient with us, and was referred to us by my brother, who described Rob as really good at what he does and “not pushy.” We decided to give Rob a try and we were not disappointed. He stuck with us as we looked at houses, got outbid on houses, changed the areas that we wanted to look in, etc. We ended up buying a house from an older couple that was doing a “for sale by owner.” This couple ended up needing a lot of help in being able to figure out what documents to sign, how the closing costs work, etc. Rob went above and beyond in helping them, even though he wasn’t their realtor. He did this because he is a nice person and wanted to make sure things went smoothly for us. We can’t thank Rob enough for his patience, hard work and the attitude that he would do anything within his power for us. We really felt like we had the best Realtor out there!!! Thank you Rob again for everything!

Cindy Lee Carpenter

We would recommend the Smithing Group to anyone and everyone!

Jared and Elyse E.

I have had Cade as an agent for 5 years.

He helped me sell, build and buy, and he searched for two years for the right house for me.

Zillow User Vicki

I have known Kelly for about 20 years and I’ve always admired her for her ability to light up the room when she walks in.

Working with Kelly at REMAX has been an awesome experience, her motivation is inspiring. Anyone that knows Kelly knows her lust for life, her family and career. She sets high goals for herself and follows though everyday in everyway. It’s an honor to work with Kelly and an honor to have her for a friend.

KC Caselli,Realtor, RE/MAX Community

He and his team will make sure that every process throughout buying or selling a home is properly handled and not detail goes unnoticed.

Danielle Marie3710

The Smithing Group is the absolute best!

Not only did they help us find a perfect home, but we had a lot of fun doing it. We had specific needs: Close to the college campus, strict price range, etc. They helped us find all of these things. They knew which areas of the city were safer and also helped us find somewhere that was accessible to public transportation. They always responded to us in a matter of hours, often minutes!They are very punctual and helped us with all of the paperwork, making everything very clear. The Smithing group is professional, honest, and just overall great people. We will definitely be using them in the future!

Ryan H.

Rob is a man of integrity that really cares when it comes to his job helping people.

He worked hard to help my wife and I sell our home so we could relocate within a short amount of time. Rob provided honest feedback as it related to pricing of our home, which helped us sell in only a couple of months. Rob also helped us reach out to honest and reliable agents in Arizona. My wife and I would highly recommend Rob to anyone with real estate needs if you want positive experience.


I have worked with Kelly Waters on several occasions.

Kalen S.

The Smithing Group was perfect in identifying what homes would suit our needs with their knowledge of the area.

Sonya really listened and put forth exceptional effort in every step of the process. We had a couple challenges in the process along the way and I was forced to complete the process remotely, rather than face to face, but with their professionalism and follow-through we were able to buy the home of our dreams. We would highly recommend them to friends definitely as the right team for the job!

Rob is the greatest realtor for our families needs in finding a home.

He was honest, prompt, fun and encouraging. He knew his stuff and worked hard to move the process along without delay. He will always be successful because of his hard work ethic and devotion. Plus he is really handsome and easy to like, just ask my 6 year old who loved when we told her that we were meeting Rob at a house to look at.

Kelly was amazing to work with when we bought our first home!

The most impressive quality about Kelly is her patience and her determination to find each person the RIGHT home. We were very picky and indecisive when we were looking for our first home, but that did not phase Kelly. She helped us find the PERFECT fit for us and gave us a lot of tips that helped us decide. She knows her stuff and is a great friend to all of the people she works with!

McKenzie Keene

Cade has so much energy and enthusiasm, and he will get you what you want.

Zillow User TonyanCraig2

Blake and Sonya were referred to me a few months ago.

I could overload this review with numerous accolades but suffice it to say, I’ll narrow it down to three attributes they embody as real estate agents- trustworthiness, intelligent and mindful. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication. The two of you make complicated real estate transactions seem simple, yet educational. Best of State vote in my book! Keep up the great work… Thanks again!!

Jeff Jerman

He not only did what was expected of him as your real estate agent, but made sure you got what you really wanted.

Zillow User wgettings

Kelly is a wonderful person, who really puts herself out to help you achieve your goal.

She takes note of what your needs are in regard to a home, and goes to it. Often she finds a home that is far superior to what you wanted, and in the same price range that you asked for. She is a delight to work with.” Top qualities: Expert, Good Value

Alexandra Phesie, hired Kelly as a Real Estate Agent

Cade knew all of the rules in question (county ordinances and water rights), and negotiated a great deal for everyone.

I would recommend Cade without reservation. He works really hard for his clients.

Zillow User LarryCorreia

Rob is awesome!

Very easy to work with. He always kept in close contact with us and he knew exactly what we wanted. He obviously had the knowledge and experience that a good agent needs and was able to suggest and counsel us in various situations because we had very limited knowledge on buying a house. Would recommend him to anyone!


I would recommend Rob to anyone looking for a realtor.

Zillow User user9968140

We would highly recommend Rob Andre.

He was our agent when we sold our first home and did a phenomenal job, so we hired him once again to sell our second home. He is knowledgeable, patient, very proactive, great with communication, and best of all, he gets the job done. We knew we could truly rely on him and trust him to get our home sold, and he did it in a timely manner once again. We couldn’t have picked a better agent!

Tracy Coates

Rob did an amazing job of selling my Mom’s house and he did it before it was even listed!

He was always really personable and all around great to work with. Thanks Rob!

Taura Scheer

My husband and I were very impressed with Kelly’s professionalism and knowledge of the housing market in Utah.

It’s not very often you come across someone who loves their job and loves helping their clients find exactly what they want and for a good deal. We looked at many houses before deciding on our home. Kelly never once made us feel like we were taking too long to make a decision. Kelly’s knowledge and expertise in the real estate market helped us to feel completely confident in our decision. She made us feel like we were her only clients even though she had many she was working with. I would highly recommend any of my family, friends and acquaintances to Kelly’s services. If you want someone who will listen to your wants and needs and help you find your new HOME, give her a call. You won’t be disappointed!!

Kelly was an excellent agent and friend to work with.

What impressed me the most was that she was very personable and did everything in her power to help us find the right home for our family. Every house we looked at she was attentive to all details, the pros and cons, and anything that would present future benefits or problems. We never had to worry about what we needed to do next or what was going on because she always kept us updated. I loved working with Kelly and would recommend her to anyone. She’s purley the best at what she does and the best part of that is that you can tell she truely loves her job and the people that she works with:) Thanks Kelly!”

Couldn’t be more pleased or satisfied.

Zillow User user6084788

Kade is personable and professional in every way.

He answered our questions and explained the process. He is cheerful and optimistic. His knowledge of the house selling process was invaluable.

Zillow User christydorrity

Working with Blake and Sonya was the best experience we’ve had with realtors.

Not only did Blake find homes to show us in our price range with our wish list requirements, he was very open to showing us houses we located on internet sites as well. Blake was upfront and honest about properties we viewed, pointing out what he knew would be concerns for us. Anytime we had questions or concerns Blake and Sonya quickly responded with answers and resolutions. Our home purchase was smooth and easy thanks to the Smithing Group and we were able to close on time. Even after the sale, we were able to call on Blake for help when an HVAC technician we had called out to clean our furnace and vents said we needed a new furnace. Blake contacted our original home inspector who had someone come out and verify the furnace was fine and working correctly. They even tested for CO emissions to be sure all was safe. Blake continues to check in with us to be sure all is going well with the home we bought. Working with them is like working with family, you couldn’t ask for a more professional team.

Ray and Barb S.

Kelly is a take-charge person.

She has always been extraordinarily helpful. I highly respect her for her willingness to help anythime she can. I have called on Kelly for help and I have relied on her expertise and knowledge.

Sylvia Schulter

It was so easy working with this real estate group.

They were very flexible and accommodating! I never felt rushed or pressured into anything. This was our first time buying a home and Blake made sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently. We got a great house in our budget. It had everything we were looking for and more. He showed us some really great options to choose from and we are so excited about our new home. This was such a fun experience and I will definitely be recommending him to anyone that asks. Thanks, Blake for the wonderful service and experience!

Samiuela Moala

Rob was great to work with!

We appreciated that he was very quick to respond to us and when working with other agents to secure the purchase of our new home. Rob had a solid understanding of the market and value potential of the homes we were looking at which was very beneficial for us as we were looking for a house we could remodel. Rob was not only knowledgeable and helpful in finding us a home, but a lot of fun to work with. We never felt pressured or hurried, but rather we knew he was part of our team and had the same goal to find us that perfect home. We enjoyed looking at homes with him and have really enjoyed getting to know him on a personal level. Its great to know we not only have an awesome realtor, but a good friend!

brianne mcmullin

As first time home sellers we were nervous about the unknowns, but Cade’s knowledge of the market and selling process put us at ease and gave us the reassurance needed to feel comfortable at each stage of the sell.

Rob was so terrific to work with!

He sold our mom’s house for asking price in less than a month. He was always quick to return phone calls, kept me updated the entire time, and made me feel like he truly cared. Rob really knows what he’s doing. I highly recommend his services!!

Melanie Owen Jackson

Rob helped us sell our townhome and we got everything we asked for and more!

We met with several agents before we chose one and he made the choice easy. If you are looking for an agent who will do everything and more to get you what you need, look no further. Rob Andre is the best!

Kelsey Steed Lemmon

Rob was very quick and helpful to respond to us.

He is honest and straight forward. He let us choose the right house for us. I would recommend Rob to anyone.

Sonya Smithing and her son Blake recently sold my property in Clinton.

My house had been on the market a while and we had not been able to move it. They took over on a short timeline (I was about to give up and try to rent it out) and they had my home marketed, shown and offers received immediately and it was closed in a matter of weeks. They were VERY responsive to any inquiries I made and were very knowledgable about the entire process. I am very grateful I met them and will not hesitate to come to them again when I need real estate help.

Mark L.

Rob was instrumental in help us understand and start the journey of selling our first home.

He was quick to respond and help us with all our questions and got things going right away. He had insights that helped us make critical decisions and gave us confidence we would succeed. In the end we decided to rent instead of sell. He helped us find a property management service that we could have faith in. He went the extra mile in everything even though in the end he didn’t get the commission.


He was always responsive, knew the market, and was hands down my favorite realtor.

My wife and I are so grateful for Kelly and all of her help!

We purchased a short sale home and she made what was known to be a stressful and drug out process, completely painless! She is amazing and we would recommend her to anyone!!!

TJ Berry

We tried other agents before working with Cade and felt pushed around.

Cade is honest and fair. We will continue working with Cade in the future for selling and buying our house.

Zillow User ballred222

The information Cade gave us in preparing our home for listing was invaluable.

I firmly believe that it was because we followed his advice that we were able to sale the home so quickly.

Jeff and Lisa Williams, hired Kelly as a Real Estate Agent

Kelly really looked after our best interests and kept us informed all along the way.

She had a personal touch and spent the time to explain and coach us in the areas of buying and selling our home – where we felt lost. Kelly kept up on all the information regarding our homes market value and played a key roll in our negotiations with other agents and in the end our homes buyer. She does fantastic work and made the experience painless, educational and fun.

Vicki Erickson

The Smithing Group gave fantastic service – I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Cade was able to sell our home in one months time and was also able to get us our full asking price.

Zillow User stacykya

We fortunately hooked up with Sonya 14 years ago as our buying agent when we moved to Ogden with my base transfer to Hill AFB.

She was as pleasant and professional as humanly possible at that time and kept in touch with us on an ongoing basis. When we suddenly up and decided to leave the state, there was no doubt who we would ask to be our selling agent. There is NOTHING bad we can say about her. We feel we’ve made a dear friend in Sonya and will miss not being nearby.

Ken and Cheryl R.

We were able to get, and keep, our offer accepted on our home thanks to the tenacity and responsiveness of Blake and Sonja.

They went above and beyond to do anything we asked, and then some, to make sure our needs were met. I will definitely be working with them again and would recommend them to anyone.

Jacob L.

Kelly was hired by my son to find his first home.

She is very professional and worked diligently in locating properties for my son to look at. Over the course of several months she was able to find the perfect home for my son that worked for him in location and price. Kelly was always on time for appointments and is an expert in her job. I would recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a home. Jody Top qualities: Great Results, Expert

As a realtor, Cade is truly worth his weight in platinum and we don’t know how we would have done it without him and his team.

Zillow User successfuldolly

We found Rob purely by chance…and we are so glad we did!

We really wanted to find a home in a very specific area and when one posted for sale in just the right spot, Rob made time in his busy schedule to take us to look (twice I might add) the day we found it. We had an appointment set to go look at homes the following week but Rob didn’t complain when I desperately wanted to see this house that very day. We ended up buying that home without looking at any others (it was just that perfect for us) and Rob didn’t give us a hard time about that decision. He was always open to what we wanted and always listened when we told him what we were looking for or if we had any concerns. He put us in touch with an amazing lender (shout out to Jessica Goodliffe at Veritas Funding) and everything went so smoothly. He was great at negotiating the purchase contract and some repairs that needed to be done by the seller. He was always willing to accommodate our busy schedules and was always available when we needed him. Rob was really great to work with and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I will use him again (though I don’t plan on moving anytime soon. We love our new home!!!!) Thanks Rob!

Amanda Gray

Not having ever sold a house, Rob Andre came highly recommended from friends and relatives.

After contacting him that very afternoon he had our house listed. It sold in three weeks and all the worries about closing wasn’t as we anticipated. Everything went smoothly, Rob and the real estate personnel where very nice and professional. Rob is really on the ball. Not a problem recommending him to anybody. Did us a real good job!

Gene Vigil

Rob is the best, most professional real estate agent I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve dealt with a lot of real estate agents while in the military.

I was told by one Realtor my house in Roy was worth so much because other houses that size we selling for that. I didn’t like that idea as we upgraded everything and did a lot of improvements making the house much better than the average house. We went to Rob and explained to him what we would like for the the house. We told him what the other Realtor said it was worth and why–Rob’s comment was –that is old school way for selling a house. He looked the house and yard over and agreed the house was well worth what we were asking, because of the upgrades and large yard. Rob listed the house for several thousand dollars more than the other Realtor was going to list it for. Rob is so good the house actually sold for more than the asking price. At one time we had 3 different buyers wanting the house, the house was sold within one week and the transition went off flawlessly.

Paul Peterson

Kelly was an excellent agent and friend to work with.

What impressed me the most was that she was very personable and did everything in her power to help us find the right home for our family. Every house we looked at she was attentive to all details, the pros and cons, and anything that would present future benefits or problems. We never had to worry about what we needed to do next or what was going on because she always kept us updated. I loved working with Kelly and would recommend her to anyone. She’s purley the best at what she does and the best part of that is that you can tell she truely loves her job and the people that she works with:) Thanks Kelly!”

Leslie Bybee hired Kelly as a Real Estate Agent, and hired Kelly more than once

She’s is one that keeps her agreements. I’ve always known Kelly to be trustworthy, a good communicator, compassionate, successful, and savvy at whatever she wants to do. Kelly Waters gets my highest recommendation

My name is Larry and I met Rob at a local gym where we frequent.

It was a shot in the dark but the timing was right and it must have been fate. I got lucky meeting Rob because he was relentless at meeting my needs and it wasn’t easy considering I work out of town most of the year. I was in Canada during much of the progress in getting my house within the time he was given. But he met it, and not only that but I couldn’t even imagine a better deal if I made myself. One of the best scores of my life. sometimes you win sometimes you lose. But thanks to Rob, this was a BIG win. Thank you Rob, we will continue to do business for many many years to come.

Kelly is fully a professional in her line of work.

Patient and responsible and at the same time, down to earth with her clients. The time that we spent with her looking for our house, she was looking and working with us for the perfect house, she never pushed us to buy something just because she wanted a sale. I will recommend Kelly to my friends and family and if I ever had to call on a realtor, it would definitely be Kelly Waters.

They were quick to follow up and communicated efficiently. The Smithing group acts very professional yet assesses each individual’s needs. They make an effort to connect personally with each client.

I met Rob quite by accident, and I am so glad I did.

My husband and I are first time home buyers and we had NO idea what we were doing! I called Rob about a listing on ksl that ended up already being under contract, and he offered to help. He was very patient with us, and explained things perfectly. I’m sure we had some silly questions (we really were clueless) but Rob never made us feel dumb. He was quick to respond at any hour and was great to work with our schedule. Rob scheduled and showed us several different houses, some more than once, before we found our home. He really listened to the things that were important to us in a home and took them into consideration. Rob made my life so much easier as we were searching for a place. I will refer my friends and family to Rob in a heartbeat- he is very good at what he does!

Rob is a true professional, in every way.

He set straight forward goals and expectations. He had a impressive amount of knowledge in the market, and gave us valuable insight, pointers and guidance. At the end of the day results matter! Rob did something in 2 weeks that others couldn’t do in a year. He targeted qualified buyers and we had our offer within 2 weeks of listening with Rob. Rob Andre and his team got results! They treated me and my family with the upmost respect. I will recommend them to everyone and I look forward to working with them in the future.


My experience working with Sonya and Blake was great!

They were very patient knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. They answered every single one of our questions and went above and beyond to make this search easy and enjoyable which allowed us to find our dream house! Even now that we’re all moved in settled in they still check up on us, that is something we truly appreciate. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Through it all, Cade has built on my first impressions from that initial phone call.

Along with forthrightness and knowledge Cade gets things done. There is never a delay in doing what he says he’ll do. His follow-up and follow-through is exemplary. Most important, Cade is credible along with having completely integrity.

Zillow User ruwoodbury

Rob was the best anyone could ask for in our real estate needs.

He is a man of integrity, is professional and honest. He worked his butt off for us during the sale of 2 homes and the purchase of one. During this time, he worked with several other realtors to make the sale and purchases of several homes, at the same time, work for everyone. He was a great negotiator and stood firm on what we wanted and needed during the sale and purchase process. We will and would highly recommend Rob to anyone with real estate needs. In the future, we will use Rob again to help us. Hopefully, he will still be in the real estate business. He is a great person and friend.

Jeremy T. Gochis

Rob is a fabulous agent, he is extremely attentive and on the ball.

He was proactive, once we got our house listed he recommended we go in and get pre-qualified just so we were aware off what we could financially afford. Keep in mind we had our house for sale for 3 years with 3 different agents before Rob came along.We listed with him and within 6 months our house was sold !!! When we initially talked to him he said to be patient with him, but he was confident that he could get our house sold and once he did he found the most beautiful home we could ever imagine we went from a little cracker box starter home to a gorgeous family home with room to grow. We had a baby a few months before our house sold and Rob always greeted her the same as he greeted us it was like talking to a friend that you can depend on. I will definitely be recommending him to any family or friends.


was with another company when working with Kelly at RE/MAX Community Kelly Waters is a great real estate agent who I have had the opportunity to work with over the past couple of years.

She is highly motivated and has an extremely professional work ethic along with a personal touch that makes each and everyone of her clients feel as if they are her only clients as well as a part of her extended family. She has no problem going above and beyond what is required to get the job done. It is without any hesitation that I would recommend her to anyone seeking help from a real estate professional.

Don Patton, Realtor, Associate Broker, RE/MAX Community

Meeting Kelly was purely by chance, my wife and I were visiting the Ogden area trying to decide if I should apply for a new job and make the move from Indiana to Utah.

We met while eating lunch at a local restaurant and knew at that time if we were going to move that we found our realtor. Once I applied for the job we let Kelly know and she went to work, daily we would get reports and pictures to look at, she would even tour the houses with us on the phone so that we could get a feeling of what the area was like and if the pictures on the internet told the real story(note I didn’t have the job yet). This went on for a few months before I was able to return to Utah to interview for the job and look at a few houses in person. Well I got the job and we made some offers on the houses I saw that didn’t work out and were left with no house and no more time to return to Utah before our second child was born and I had to relocate, we had to trust her judgment and the pictures from the listing. It worked out perfectly, the first time we saw our new house was on the day of the closing and it was great. Kelly is a wonderful realtor and now a good friend, I couldn’t imagine doing this again with anyone else

Greg Kuebrich, hired Kelly as a Real Estate Agent

Rob is a very personable and knowledgeable real estate agent.

He is very fun to work with and honest in his work. Because of his local knowledge and contacts, we were able to sell our home quickly and get into a bank owned home with very little problems at all. Rob has a flexible schedule and could show us houses when they came available. We would recommend Rob for a real estate agent in buying and selling a home.


Best Agent out their hands down, was so understanding and helpful about everything, he help us sell our house and find a new one, very highly recommended!


managed Kelly indirectly at RE/MAX Community What a ball of good energy!

Proactive and focused, Kelly aims to “get the job done”, and she will thrive to make “it” the most enjoyable experience she can create for you. Kelly’s uplifting personality is refreshing and most necessary, especially in our the world of constant negotiation.

Cade is just what you want in a realtor: highly knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy and patient.

Zillow User maryblr9

We were tough customers.

Our search area spanned farther than most. Our realtors Blake and Sonya understood that we were trying to find the perfect house for our family and provided service above and beyond. We had a budget to stay within and wanted to make the most of our investment. By pulling comparables and weighing out the value of square footage and the quality of the homes they were able to provide us comfort in knowing when there was a good deal. Their experience negotiating also provided us with the ability to move in sooner than expected, to have some repair issues remedied, and have the seller provide more value in the sale by assisting with closing costs and providing us with appliances of concern due to the cost such as front loading washer and dryer to remain with the house due to a washroom built for it’s accommodation. I would highly recommend the Smithing Group.

John and Shevon C.

Cade has been amazing to work with – he is a straight shooter who knows the market and has the community connections needed to sell your home fast.


Zillow User jenmac6277

The Smithing group sold our home in less than 24 hours for a full price offer.

They were great to work with. Their process expertise and negotiation skills are top notch. I would recommend them to everyone.

Devin and Arin A.

It is difficult to imagine working with a more helpful, knowledgeable, or professional team of realtors – Blake and Sonya are as good as it gets.

They were constantly available to answer any questions or resolve any concerns during the process of selling our home. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you choose to work with anyone other than the Smithing Group.

Jason Hirschi

Both Sonya and Blake were a joy to work with from the very beginning.

They became our friends while maintaining a very professional relationship. They where always able to answer any of our question and satisfy any concerns we had throughout the process of purchasing our home. We would not hesitate to highly recommend them to any of our family or friends.

He was able to get us a much higher offer than I was hoping for, and he worked extremely hard to mitigate the fallout from a major mistake I made right before closing.

I was expecting my mom’s house to be on the market for months, but Rob had it sold for asking price in under a month. He was so easy to work with and always returned calls within a few minutes. It was such a smooth experience, I’d recommend him to anyone!


Rob was so wonderful to work with.

Not only was he experienced and educated in his field, he was outgoing and personable and quickly became our friend! He helped us to find exactly what we were looking for in a house. We could not be more pleased with our experience. Rob made us feel like we were his top priority. He was always quick to respond to our emails and questions and made us feel valued. We have and will continue to recommend Rob Andre to our family and friends!! Thank you, Rob!


My wife and I worked with Blake and Sonya to help us purchase our first home.

Unfortunately our process took us quite a bit longer than most. Blake and Sonya couldn’t have been more patient and helpful. We looked at our first home in Sept. of 2014 and didn’t end up purchasing until July 2015. We never heard them complain and anytime we found a house or needed additional help or advice, they were also there, prompt and ready. Poor Blake probably showed us 20+ homes before we found the perfect one. When it came to negotiating, he helped us get below our targeted budget and overall, we couldnt have asked for better agents to represent us. In future purchases, we will be going right back to the Smithing Group for our new homes. Fa’afetai Lava!

Spud and Wendy T.

Blake was very responsive and helpful with all aspects during the process of purchasing our home.

As first time home buyers we little knowledge and many questions. Blake was very patient and helped us resolve any doubts or concerns we had. We were very please with the service he provided to us.

We had an excellent experience working w/ Rob Andre!

We highly recommend him to anyone that needs a Realtor. Rob is very knowledgeable of the housing market, the current rates and trends, which homes would be hard to resell, etc. We really felt like Rob had our best interests at heart. He worked hard to make sure that we got a good deal on the home we purchased. He would also research other houses in the areas that we were looking in to make sure that we were getting a fair price when we made our offer. Rob was very patient with us as we changed our mind a few times on the areas we were looking at, the type of floor plan we wanted, etc. All in all, we had an excellent experience with Rob and would not hesitate to use him again and recommend him to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

Rob is the best real estate agent!

He really cares about his clients. In our experience working with Rob he really payed attention to what each of us liked or didn’t like and showed us houses that exceeded our expectations for our price range.

My dad sold his house and bought a house through Rob and was impressed with his work as well!! I have and will always recommend Rob!

! Brooke Waters is the 3rd agent I’ve had the pleasure of working with and is a keeper!! I will never use anyone else!! 1st was buying my home, great experience, the 2nd was my first attempt at selling my home after living in it for a little over 4 years; that was a disappointing experience, and then Brooke Waters came to the RESCUE!! It’s true what they say, THIRD TIME’S A CHARM!! Brooke Waters is phenomenal at communicating, explaining the process in detail and in terms that I understand. She’s extremely professional, timely, sweet and funny. The whole process was very transparent, I was always kept in the loop and updated. She gave me raw honest feedback on what I needed to do to sell my home, and to get my home ready to be photographed, listed and shown. Things you wouldn’t even think about, ones that just slip your mind. Then she came over with all her glamourous staging props, (almost like what you’d hire an interior decorator to do, but not too crazy), just enough to give the space some flare for the pictures and the showings. It’s crucial to helping your buyers imagine themselves in your home. And that they don’t get distracted by a bunch of personal items or clutter. I think finding a good or a great agent is easy, and the easier part is being the representing agent of the buyer, but it takes SKILLS, and GUSTO, EXTREMELY HARD WORK, DEDICATION and DETERMINATION to be the representing agent(BROOKE) of the SELLER(ME). Cause lord knows, not every agent can SELL a house being the representing agent of that property. It takes a special kind of skill set, which Brooke Waters possesses. My situation was tricky and unique as well. She was able to accommodate my needs. I had already packed everything in my house, moved it out of state, and had nothing. She offered me a blow up bed and a blanket to use for the couple of weeks I was stuck in my home and waiting for the house to close. After everything was complete, she was still there for me, to take my calls, texts and email questions I had about buying my new home out of state. I’ve already referred several people to her, and will continue to do so. If I ever move back to Utah, without a doubt, she with be my ONE and ONLY agent for all my BUYING and SELLING needs. I wish I could’ve brought her with me so she could’ve sold me my new home here in Texas!! Buying and selling a home are amongst THE BIGGEST decisions and LIFE ALTERING changes you will ever make and experience. Don’t make the mistake of settling for just anyone. Brooke Waters is your “one stop shop” and the answer to all of your needs.

Zillow User user5637220

When I first started looking at houses to buy I didn’t even know where to begin, or what to look for.

So I got in contact with Blake and Sonya smithing. From day one they sat me down and explained everything in detail about the process and what I needed to do. They asked me questions and answered any that I had. They were very informative and knew what they were talking about. They were very confident and kept my needs and wants above all else. Both Blake and Sonya have extensive knowledge about the housing market and made sure that nothing was missed or looked over. They answered all of my many calls, or returned my call shortly after. I would definitely recommend the smithing group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Sonya and Blake worked together to quickly sell my fathers home after he passed away and helped make a difficult time a bit easier.

They were always professional and were so easy to work with!

We loved working with Rob on the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one.

We had never sold a home before and had no clue what to do or expect. Rob made it really easy for us and got us a ton of showings. He was also very patient with us as we were pretty picky about finding a new house. I’m sure he is a busy guy, because he is great at what he does, but he never made us feel rushed and we always felt like a priority. We sold our house in 3 weeks and found one to purchase in that time. We were able to close on both houses on the same day. It could not have worked out better! Thanks Rob!

Stephanie Weir

Rob was absolutely great to work with.

He was very professional and knowledgeable which gave us piece of mind as we sold our first home. I would highly recommend his services if you are looking for a passionate, professional, knowledgeable and caring agent. I will continue to use his services for future real estate needs. Thank you Rob for all your help!!

Rob helped me find and close on a home in a couple months when I had been looking for nearly a year.

Very helpful, great communication, and always willing to work for my best interest. Great agent on my behalf!

Working with the smithing group was phenomanol, Sonya was always very willing and eager to help us in any way she could!

She wasn’t pushy and was very understanding to our wants and needs! I recommend them to everyone I know!!!! I actually cried the day that we got our keys because I was going to miss her!

Rob Andre was a great sales agent.

He kept us well informed and on track during the entire home purchase process. He went the extra mile in making sure we had all the information about the house in a timely and professional manner. He made an extra effort to make the time for all house purchasing processing during a very busy time in his personal life. He is a great salesman and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Kelly is very aware of what is going on in her field so that I have a reality of what is best for me and not just a sales benefit for Kelly.

She is honest, cares a great deal for my needs over her own monetary gain. These qualities make her a great sales agent and friend. Very honored to know and work with her.” Top qualities: Personable, Expert.

David Speters, hired Kelly as a Real Estate Agent

Rob was actually working with my Son to find him a home and I was living out of state trying to deal with my Son’s and I lender that was there in Utah.

I was having issues with not understanding the process with our lender and Rob stepped in to help me out. Rob could have very easily stepped aside once my Son placed an offer on the house Rob had listed. Instead, he gave me his number and went way above and BEYOND his duty to answer any questions I may have had. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone. His number 1 priority is his customer or in this case the mother of his customer. Ha Rob is very patient, caring, proactive, and his main concern is to make sure we were satisfied. I WILL definitely contact him again when I am ready to buy my own home back in Utah. So Blessed to have had Rob as our Realtor and now as a friend.

Pat Glover

Rob is such an honest and trustworthy agent.

He takes his time with you and makes sure you feel comfortable and secure with his knowledge and experience. Rob is a good listener and knows the right questions to find out what your needs are. He won’t hesitate to answer any question you have and is a great communicator. Rob is very friendly and is able to maintain a good sense of humor under trying circumstance. I would defiantly recommend Rob to any buyer or seller.


If you want someone who will give it to you straight, bring the best Real Estate knowledge to the table and strategically position your house to sell, look no further!

The two most impressive things about Kelly is her knowledge of the housing market as she heard what we were looking for and quickly found several options that were exactly what we wanted.

The other thing is the patience and professionalism she displays. She helped us work thru all the details and clearly explained each step along the way and made the home buying experience easy and less stressful for us. She is also extremely fun to work with

Justin Perrenoud

The Smithing group was excellent even when the construction of hour home went well beyond the promised dates, they went to bat for us and made sure we were taken care and compensated, will most definitely refer them to anyone looking to buy a home.

Steven M.

He stayed on top of everything through all the home inspections and negotiations and always kept us informed.

If you want to sell your home, GIVE CADE A CALL

Blake and Sonya are two of the most reputable agents around.

I was very pleased with the work they did in helping to sell my home. I would highly recommend these two to anyone interested in buying or selling!

Ben Olson

The best people out there in real estate!

They work hard to make sure you get everything you need and are looking for in a house as well as in selling a house. Very helpful and great to work with. Always professional and available.

Kelly has provided my business with nothing but top quality service.

Her ability to pull together the information, deliver it well before deadline and be spot on with the facts has saved our company millions. Kelly is the consummate professional. If you need a job handled from start to finish by someone who you can trust to get results, then look no further. I can give no higher recommendation for dealings in Real Estate than Kelly Waters

Eric Roman, hired Kelly as a Real Estate , and hired Kelly more than once

Kelly is incredibly dedicated to her profession.

She has helped us find a property and also helped us sell one. She was so patient in helping us find just the home we wanted and was willing to negotiate a great deal for us. Not to mention the great advice all along the way with pricing, staging, deadlines, etc. We had no idea what we were doing and she was there every step of the way. I will never use another agent, Kelly Waters is the best out there!

Jenn Bazzano

We have worked with a couple realtors in the past couple of years.

Though we did not click with any of them like we did Rob. We began this process 2 years ago, and after searching for a few houses and working with our first realtor. We decided we were not ready to buy and waited. A year and a half went by, we began looking again. Rob was the first realtor we had met, he was representing a house that we first picked to see. He was polite, answered any questions we had (we had a ton, first time buying a house) and just great to talk to. I had done some research, and it had said make sure to pick a realtor you feel comfortable with. We wanted to be positive he was the correct choice for such a big commitment. Me and my fiance went and met with 2 other realtors. However neither made us as happy or feel as confident. After experiencing these 2 others, we knew Rob was the guy to lead us through this process. He will guide you and give his honest opinion on any house you might see. At the same time, he is not pushy and always lets you have the final say. He is a hardworking agent, that will do anything he can for his clients. I would strongly recommend this agent to anyone. The home buying process can be crazy, however I can say without any doubts. That I had fun and found the perfect house, and the only reason why….. is because of Rob Andre. Thank you Rob. For everything.

Eric Van Briggs

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Rob Andre as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for or selling a home.

We were searching for a somewhat modern home large enough for 7 of our 8 kids and guests. Our needs included great schools, spacious play areas (inside & out), entertainment space, and at least 7 bedrooms. Rob had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific “must haves” as well as our budgetary limits. He made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale matching our requirements. He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range &/or not in line with our needs. Rob is highly attentive and a personable agent. He returned all phone calls and emails promptly on the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Growing up in this area of Utah, Rob relied not only on market & development knowledge but on his personal experiences and knowledge – making us feel even more comfortable in his suggestions and guidance. We are pleased to recommend Rob to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down one of the best in the area in our opinion and if we ever need to move again he will be our first choice in real estate agents.

Tiffany Hammond

Blake told us what to do to get our house prepared for our showing, and he brought us a full price offer the first day it showed!

Blake and Sonya negotiated with our buyers to let us stay for 2 weeks after closing, so that we didn’t have to move twice, which gave the sellers of our new house time to get their move in order as well. I definitely recommend working with The Smithing Group. It was a fantastic experience for my family.

Dennis Bowden

I’d recommend Cade to anyone whether it’s buying or selling.

If we ever have any future need for a realtor, it will certainly be Cade we go to. Thanks Cade

Zillow User dtay1215

Because Cade Erickson is such a knowledgeable realtor and so friendly and great to work with, I kept his number in my phone for 7 years because I knew the day was coming when I would be buying and selling again.

Zillow User joyce lareau

I thank you and Kelly so much for dedication, hard work, persistence, and professionalism.

I wouldn’t have had it any other way. You two will always be my go-to for any real estate needs. I trust you 1000%, and my trust isn’t gained easily. I have referred several people to you, family, friends, and even customers, and I will continue to do so. Anyone would be so lucky to work with you on one of THE BIGGEST decisions of their life!! Much mahalos & cheers to new beginnings!!

Kristen Correa

Kelly is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with.

In Kelly, her clients really get what they’re paying for, as the client’s interests are always her only priority. Kelly has an infectious personality and is a delight to be with. You could not ask for a more a more capable professional.

Ryan & Kendra Mortensen

We highly recommend Blake and Sonya.

They helped us buy a home and sold our home. We had a lot of questions and were a bit nervous. They answered all our questions and were quick to respond to us and were very patient with us. They are very friendly and it is obvious they care about their clients. We are very thankful for all their help!

Cade was very good to work with throughout the building process.

His representation of the builder, DRM, as well as his communication with us was smooth. We are very happy with the end result.

Zillow User JarumStone

His knowledge and negotiation skills made it an easy process.

It sold very quickly and we would recommend him to others. Great to work with and understands how to show a home.

Zillow User ericmshort

My wife and I were first time buyers and started looking at homes a while back before we met Rob.

We didn’t know what we were doing and we tried to do it ourselves because we didn’t want to have to pay for a realtor or for someone else to have to pay. It was very hard and so confusing. My wife called to see a house and Rob showed it to us. He was very nice and very knowledgeable, respectful and patient in answering our questions. We were especially impressed with his knowledge about the housing market and how he has been studying it. He seemed to really understand it. After that we realized that we were doing it the hard way and we stuck with Rob because of how much he seemed to know and understand. Also, Rob had the warmest personality out of all the other agents that tried to help us. We will for sure keep in contact with him and use him in the future. I highly recommend him.
