Hattiesburg Mississippi Real Estate Company
About DeLois Smith
The DeLois Smith All Star Team, REALTORS is committed to developing our client relationships, our systems, and ourselves in an ethical and profitable manner for long-term benefits.
We will provide the best service possible for every client we represent. We will never enter into a client relationship where we know what is expected of us cannot be done in good faith. We will never enter into an agreement with a seller who is unrealistic in regard to appropriate pricing.
When contracted to sell a home, we will make recommendations to increase the property value and to reduce the marketing time, even if it means sharing information that may be unpleasant. We acknowledge that we may periodically lose business because we are truthful with our clients due to our mutual goals.
We will never lose sight that our honesty, loyalty, understanding, accountability, and creativity are what set us apart from the real estate masses. Our services are always made available to the public. We will always use a well-trained team to assist us in the complex house selling process. We will prioritize our time so that we only work with people who are either buying or selling real estate. We will always treat all parties honestly and fairly, and we will always offer our properties without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, ancestry, national origin, handicap, or family status.
We share this with you because we believe it is important for you to know how we feel about the real estate industry and marketing your home.
