HomeSmart International

HomeSmart is my Brokerage of choice  for a simple, yet profound reason:  HomeSmart is built on the principle that you, my client, are best served when my resources are spent on improving my services to you rather than on high brokerage fees.

It is really that simple!


The Internet, Real Estate, Eileen and HomeSmart

Today, well over 80% of buyers turn to the web when they are ready to buy or sell a home.

Long before calling an agent, buyers and sellers browse listings, research home values, and "interview" agents online.  As a Top Producer, I know the importance of my online presence. You, my clients, reach out to me because you appreciate my websites and respond to the personality I project online.

Before we speak, my job is to stand out to you as the Real Estate Professional who offers you the best of everything - Flagstaff's easiest, most complete real estate website, market knowledge, impeccable ethics, availability, and the expertise to negotiate contracts.

 The groundbreaking philosophy and structure of HomeSmart Fine Homes and Land fully supports this new role of the Real Estate Agent.  HomeSmart Fine Homes and Land provides state of the art technology and very simply, allows me to invest in improving the cutting edge services I offer you, rather than in my brokerage. 


Here is information on HomeSmart International from our Website.

On January 14, 2000 HomeSmart Real Estate announced its Grand Opening to the Phoenix marketplace with only two Agents. A reputation for advanced technologies soon followed. As a result, HomeSmart rapidly developed into one of the nations fastest growing Real Estate brokerages. With a commitment to its Agents and Clients, HomeSmart has now grown to over 4,000 agents, with offices throughout Arizona and Southern California. It is the largest real estate brokerage in the Southwest and ranked among the top 10 largest real estate brokerages in the nation.

HomeSmart was founded by its' President and CEO, Matt Widdows. It has always been privately held by Matt and his wife Colleen, and remains a family business to this day.

Much of HomeSmart's success can be attributed to the combined real estate and technology background of its' founder. In the early 1990's Matt created a technology company that focused primarily on accounts receivable systems for the medical industry. During that time Matt was licensed as a real estate agent and after selling that company in 1994, he focused his efforts full time in the real estate industry.

In early 1999, he recognized the opportunity to bring his technological expertise into real estate and the idea of HomeSmart was born. Matt created a company built around technology that provided Agents with cutting edge tools, a professional meeting and working environment, and efficiencies that would give them more time to focus on their Clients and their business.

HomeSmart's technology has allowed it to provide a consistent high level of customer service to its' agents and clients, and prides itself on successfully blending technology with a personal touch, something that is often lost.

Today, HomeSmart continues to be a leader in the Real Estate industry by implementing technologies that empower its Agents to provide outstanding customer service to their Clients. HomeSmart agents are professional practitioners that lead their industry and are known for excellence. HomeSmart has now franchised its' proprietary systems and plans continued growth throughout the United States, with franchises currently in Southern California and Arizona.
