“Ryan is one of the best! Perfectly professional. Caring in every way. Connected and knows all the right people to help with every detail. He's dedicated and won't give up until he gets the job done. He has a heart as big as Tennessee pride! He promised me that we would find the perfect home and he wouldn't rest until we did. We worked with Ryan and Kim-two of the most wonderful people ever in my heart. I don't think of them as just realtors...I consider them my friends and extended family. Blessed to have found them when we were searching for a home. We could not be happier with our home, the people that got us here and made our dreams possible."

“From the start to the end, Ryan worked with me and my wife to guide us through the process. He had a person for every situation that came up, and his team kept us informed throughout the process. Thanks for all you did for us.”

“Our family survived a big move, but I don’t think we would have made it through the process without Ryan! The first time we met Ryan was 2 to 3 years ago to purchase a vacant lot beside our home. At that time, he made the process so easy and smooth. So, when we decided to list our house back in February, we knew exactly who to call. We immediately called him to set up a meeting to see what to do to get our house listed. Everything had to line up perfectly for this to happen! We had to list our house that we were living in and list the lot that we had previously purchased. However, the catch was that we would not let the lot go unless the house was sold also! Well, it all happened just like it needed to. Ryan provided much-needed guidance throughout the complete process. Not only that, but anytime we requested to see a home that was listed he always did his best to make it happen and always adapted to our crazy schedules. Even though selling a home can be so stressful, Ryan made it easy and was always there to help. Our family enjoyed the times of laughing our way through the process with Ryan and getting to know him. If we should ever need to move again Ryan will be our go-to!”

“Ryan is amazing! We had several realtors prior to him, and it got so bad we had to put house hunting on hold. Ryan made the process so easy and stress-free. He is super responsive and surpassed all our expectations. He will go the extra mile and then another. He continues to help us with issues, despite that we closed our house months ago! Hands down you need Ryan Smith as your realtor.”

“Well, what can we say about Mr. Ryan Smith, Realtor?! First off, Ryan found us a beautiful place here in Tennessee. It took a while to find the "one", but he stuck it out with us. Ryan kept us in the loop for every property that listed that had what we were looking for. He went above and beyond since we were over 700 miles away. And to buy a house with that much distance is a tough call, but we made it work. And Ryan really worked for us. And he made the long-distance home buying experience viable. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy a home in East Tennessee.”

“What can I say other than Ryan is AMAZING! We had been looking for a new house for a few months on our own. Every time I would find a house that I liked, it would already be gone by the time I had a chance to look at it in person. When I found Ryan at Coldwell Banker Wallace, I knew immediately he would find us the perfect house by how determined he sounded over the phone. He did not disappoint! He got us showings super-fast, he responds to text or email quickly and at any time of day, he’s VERY organized, and he will FIGHT FOR YOU! I didn’t have to worry about anything except showing up and signing the papers! Everyone needs to contact him if you want a quick efficient realtor and someone who has your best interest in mind! We love our new home and couldn’t be more thankful to Ryan!”

“Ryan Smith was hands down the best realtor we could have gone with. Not only does he keep you laughing but he always went above and beyond for us. He was always willing to work with our crazy work schedules and he was super knowledgeable about everything from what certain repairs could possibly cost to what the inspectors looked at. I've been told that buying a house is always stressful, but I didn't have that problem with Ryan. We would definitely use him for any of our house buying and selling needs in the future.”

“We live out of state and Ryan recently helped us buy a 2nd home in the Knoxville area where our daughter will stay while attending UT. We came there for a week and looked at some houses with Ryan. We didn’t find anything, so we had to keep looking from out of state. So, for a couple of months, we would send him houses and he would send us houses. Ryan knew what kind of place we were looking for because he listened to us and really paid attention to the needs and concerns we had. He did an excellent job of representing us and protecting us while house hunting for/with us remotely. Plus, when good houses got listed, they sold within 2 days, so we had that added pressure. With all that in mind, Ryan stuck with it and patiently look at several houses for us. We eventually found one and made an offer. There were other offers, but somehow, Ryan got them to accept our offer. It was a nerve-racking offering and signing contracts on a house we never saw in person. But we trusted Ryan, and he came through. The house we bought is as close to perfect as we could hope for. It is an excellent house, exactly what we were looking for. I will gladly work with Ryan again buying or selling. Professionally and personally, Ryan is excellent.”

" Ryan was the most helpful real estate agent we have worked with. He always replied to my myriad of questions in a timely and cheerful manner. He is good at organization which helped us keep up with all the different timelines and steps to buying and selling in this crazy housing market. When we had unforeseen issues come up, Ryan would have a solution before he presented us with the problem. But most of all, I liked Ryan. He was a fun person to take this journey with and we are better people for knowing him."

"Ryan was great through the entire process of selling our home. I would highly recommend him. He was very thorough and informative. We greatly appreciate him!"
• Tosha Reno •
"I cannot speak highly enough of Ryan. I had a contract with a previous realtor that could not do what Ryan did, and didn't put in a quarter of the effort that Ryan did. He was very thorough he consistently communicated with you and kept you updated, and made sure everything was done right the first time. He listed, showed, and sold my house in under two weeks. He will be the only realtor I use and recommend. Thanks again Ryan, for doing what you do best."
