After buying and selling homes for my family, my move into real estate sales was a natural. It's a profession that combined my strong negotiating and innovative skills. These skills were developed during my extensive career in marketing and retail management, and fit in perfectly with my knowledge of real estate and love for helping people achieve their goals.

    My successful career in real estate began in New York City over 18 years ago and lasted until I moved to Los Angeles. This lengthy and fruitful experience taught me that buying a home is probably the biggest financial commitment you'll ever make. It's an investment that creates a sense of stability and identity for you and your family...afterall, owning a home is still the American dream and I look forward to helping you achieve it.

    My Client Testimonials

    · Long Tram First-Time Buyer We loved our experience with Hildi. She helped us purchase our first home and close escrow in 22 days! Hildi was very knowledgeable and responsive. She consistently followed up with us during our search and till the close of escrow. Although we are first-time home buyers, we felt very well informed from start to finish. She broadened our search and introduced us to new neighborhoods that fit our criteria. She was aggressive and got us what we wanted, but was never pushy and made us feel uncomfortable. She was complimented many times by the listing agent and sellers about how clean and organized our offer letter were. Hildi has a great personality and made the entire process very enjoyable. We will definitely recommend Hildi to all our friends & family.
    Erwin Von Excellent, she really cares about her clients.
    Robert Lisauskas Hildi is an excellent realtor. Her experience, responsiveness, and talent made buying a home in CA an enjoyable experience. Extremely knowledgeable of the market, she knows the best contacts for inspections, financing, etc. I will contact Hildi again the next time I need to buy/sell and will recommend her to friends.
    anonymous Hildi was great, without her we would never have been able to buy this house!
    Stephen Yannow Hildi was the most professional real estate agent that I have ever dealt with and we have 2 other homes. She provided excellent guidance and exceeded our expectations in all respects. I would highly recommend her. Stephen Yanow
    · Bart Noyes Hildi made a difficult journey fun with her humor and wit and she was always there with a word of advice when we needed one. Her human touch complemented your website wonderfully. We thought she was great and that she delivered a very professional service which helped us get our dream house.
    · Helena Curtis She was a joy to work with. We always felt like we were her only and most important clients.
    Anonymous 2:00AM as i located properties of interest, hildi took the ball and ran with it. many times it didnt work out due to competition, counterparty. once we found the property eventually purchased, she led me through each step of the way (i am a first time buyer).
    Annette Levy Hildi was great to work with. She guided us into the right neighborhood for our family and always had our best interest at heart. She was very responsive and attentive throughout the entire process - from our initial (non-serious) searching through closing & move-in. She still follows up to make sure we are happy. And we couldn't be happier with the end result. :)
    Bud Byrnes Relocator Hildi, is fabulous realtor and helped me buy the house I wanted!
    Courtney Svajian First-Time Buyer Hildi was wonderful to work with. We instantly found our dream home and she helped us through the three-month ordeal of dealing with a bank-owned foreclosure. She found us a fantastic mortgage broker and called me regularly to provide updates and keep me in the loop. I would absolutely recommend Hildi to any first time home buyer looking for guidance and an agent they can count on!
    Scott Ness We can't put into words how wonderful it was to have Hildi Smith as our agent; the patience and professionalism that she showed while trying to fill our numerous needs and requests will forever be appreciated. Hildi has great knowledge of the LA market and the savy required of a great Realtor. It is our feeling that through this process she has become much more than our agent for life, she is also someone that we will always consider a great friend.
