I had an excellent experience with Smart Settlements! Karen was incredibly attentive and responsive throughout the entire process. She made sure to keep my buyer and team in the loop at all times, and her clarity in answering questions made the process seamless. As if that wasn't enough, Franklyn made the closing not just efficient, but also fun and exciting. His knowledge, professionalism, and sense of humor really made a difference. I will definitely be recommending Smart Settlements to my clients!

Everyone that assisted my husband and I provided the best closing experience ever. We are first time homebuyers and assisted with fast and efficient pre closing documents. A shout out to Karen Gunn who prepared the pre-closing paperwork and to Errol Williamson who helped us sign the documents in person on closing day, he did so with humor and lightheartedness while also being informing us in detail on everything we were signing. Thanks to all the team at Smart Settlements

Smart Settlements is always SO flexible. Whenever something doesn't go according to plan. Smart Settlements pivots very well. They go with the flow of the lenders, the sellers, and the buyers to schedule, reschedule, adjust, and modify any documents necessary for a smooth closing. Then the closing is SUPER quick. I've been at closings that take 2 hours for my buyers...not SMART. They're informative and patient. They'll answer any question my buyers have, but they're efficient. Closing typically takes no more than 1 hour. This place is phenomenal!!

You and the rest of the SMART team have shown nothing but grace and professionalism throughout this process (especially Franklin, during closing!). It was really great working with such a cohesive team - I always felt like my questions got prompt and thorough answers, and I appreciated being able to use the Qualia platform to view and complete documentation. I'll absolutely be using SMART for any future DMV-area home purchases to come :)

Karolina was great in processing the closing on my home. Smart Settlements' uses innovative technology on their website and mobile app make submitting documents to/from the closing processor, realtor, and lender very easy. I liked being able to deposit my check for earnest money through the app. The closing process went very efficient and smooth with good communication throughout the entire process.

Awesome Settlement Company that I’ve personally used to closed several transactions with. Evelyn and her staff are very professional and provide top level service that is second to none.

This was an easy process. We were able to make adjustments to the schedule and communication was made easy through the portal. There was additional information about settlement and steps before & after, which helped a 1st time homebuyer like me and my wife. We closed on time!

Very professional and very friendly staff. The communication was great, and I loved the platform they use to keep track of all the correspondence and timeline of the transaction. I will definitely use them again and I highly recommend this company

Working with Evelyn was a great experience! It was our first time with Smart Settlements and we had a bit of an issue with the house that arose right before closing. Evelyn was very helpful and worked hard to get the property through closing. Her guidance was critical to the process. We are so thankful she was there to make everything happen. We would wholeheartedly recommend her and her team...you want someone great in your corner in case something goes off the track. Thank you!! :)

What a positive experience working with Smart! They are incredibly professional and efficient. Would most definitely recommend them for your closings. They also host classes for agents which are very helpful as well!

North Beach, MD

Very glad we chose Smart Settlements to help us close on our first home! Closing on a house can be a stressful process with the deadlines, document requests, and negotiating - but Smart was incredibly responsive and quick to provide us with updates along the way. Their online file sharing system was incredibly user friendly and made it easy to view important documents throughout the process. Our processor, Karolina, was very proactive in keeping us informed, and made us feel comfortable that we were being taken care of. The highlight of the experience was the fact that we were able to close at our new house! This made the closing that much more memorable for my wife and I. Our closing agent, Matt, was very informative in explaining the documents that we were signing on closing day. We have no reservations about using Smart, and are very happy that we chose them to help us throughout the settlement process! We will definitely be using them again in the future when it comes time to buy another house!
