After a successful 25-year career as a teacher and assistant principal, I began my real estate career in 2017. I have a Master of Arts in Educational Administration and possess a unique skill set that has allowed me to establish a reputation as a well-respected and trusted agent. College brought me to San Diego over 30 years ago. I have lived in Carlsbad for 20 years, so have intimate knowledge of the area and a strong desire to make my home, your home. I am passionate about the client experience and have a personal philosophy to make "clients for life." My business is built on positive relationships, dedication, and communication. I am here to serve you!
We recently purchased a home in the San Diego area remotely due to children's school schedules and military orders. Kacey was our local representative and helped us through the challenging process and timelines, flawlessly. Kacey was a master at managing the very challenging closing timeline we faced in April at the height of the market "madness". From the very start, she proved to us to be dedicated to finding our perfect "forever" home and did not shy away from helping us with our unique needs as a military family that was really beyond her scope of duties as a Realtor®.— Gabe & Heidi, Military
Kacey stuck by us every step of the way, helping us navigate this constantly changing market. Kacey pushed us to focus on our wants, goals, and future. She has been like family to us throughout this process and we look forward to having her continue to celebrate many more milestones with us in our home!— Beth, Educator
Kacey made the process so easy for us and made us feel comfortable asking any questions that we had. She worked hand-in- hand with our lender and went over all of the legal documents with a fine tooth comb. She worked diligently to make sure that we got the best deal and were making good financial decisions. Not only was she professional and committed, but she was so fun to work with. Anyone who works with Kacey will end up with a lifelong— Lexie, Educator
Kacey was an incredible Realtor® to work with! She was so hard working and available by phone, text, or to meet in person whenever we needed her. She drove all the way out to East County countless times to show us homes. We were first-time home buyers and Kacey made the process so easy for us and made us feel comfortable asking any questions that we had. We told her our goal was to buy a home by the end of summer and she made it happen in just 4 short months! We were very particular about what we were looking for in a home including price, size, location, good schools, etc. and she listened to our requests and worked hard to help us meet all of those goals. She worked hand-in-hand with our lender and went over all of the legal documents with a fine tooth comb. She worked diligently to make sure that we got the best deal possible and were making good financial decisions. Not only was she professional and committed, but she was so fun to work with. Anyone who works with Kacey will end up with a lifelong friend. We were so happy working with Kacey and Berkshire Hathaway and would recommend her and her team to anyone and everyone! We are so in love with our new home and neighborhood and are eternally grateful!— Buyer
My husband and I were so thankful to have been able to buy our first home in January of 2022. After 4 long years of showings, tours and rising costs we were nervous it wouldn’t happen. Kacey stuck by us every step of the way, helping us to navigate this constantly changing market. We were hesitant as the world was changing, inventory was low, and prices were soaring. Kacey pushed us to focus on our wants, goals and future. We were determined to purchase in a certain neighborhood where houses for sale were few and far between. Miraculously, 3 houses came up for sale and Kacey jumped on the opportunity. We put solid bids on all 3, placing us in the top running of all. Her clean and well-written offers helped us to land what we have found to be our perfect first home. Kacey gave us the nudge and encouragement to go for it and we are so thankful she did! We locked in when interest rates were low and have already seen a dramatic increase in our home value. We couldn’t be more thankful to her for sticking with us and making our dream a reality! She has been like family to us throughout this process and we look forward to having her continue to celebrate many more milestones with us in our home!— Bethany & Rich R.
I would love to recommend to you our realtor, Kacey Smith! We recently purchased a home in the San Diego area remotely due to children’s school schedules and military orders. Kacey was our local representative and helped us through the challenging process and timelines, flawlessly. From the very start, she proved to us to be dedicated to finding our perfect “forever” home and did not shy away from helping us with our unique needs as a military family that were really beyond her scope of duties as a realtor. We met Kacey through a referral from Cathedral Catholic High School and she has become a close friend through our home buying experience. Kacey worked tirelessly to help us get an offer accepted on a wonderful home in the perfect location for us. Kacey was a master at managing the very challenging closing timeline we faced in April at the height of the market “madness”. She did this while balancing her own significant life events and I was completely impressed with her work ethic and fitting our house hunting needs into her own personal priorities.— Dr. Gabriel & CDR Heidi G.
Kacey did an outstanding job with the property we recently purchased. She was there every step of the way and kept us informed at all times. She was very helpful with coordinating inspections and other services that needed to be done prior to closing. We had many questions and she was always positive and helpful with her responses, which made the process very easy on us. We highly recommend Kacey Smith to anyone looking to sell or buy property. She’s a knowledgeable, skilled Realtor®, and a pleasure to work with!— Buyer
I trusted Kacey with representing us through several home renovation projects before we moved in. Kacey was willing to keep an eye on and care for our home as if it were her own, after closing and before we arrived in San Diego. I leaned on Kacey for recommendations for local vendors who would help us get settled and make our house a home. She streamlined the process and found quality contractors with availability exactly when we needed them.— Buyer
We met Kacey in 2018 and worked with her for over one year until she found our first home. She contacted us Saturday, we toured it Sunday and submitted Monday. Has a great understanding of what we were looking for and delivered our dream home. We can't thank Kacey enough for her time and effort while making the process smooth. We will be upgrading in the future and she already knows what we want! Highly recommend.— Buyer & Seller
Kacey was fantastic from start to finish and frankly made the process easy especially so as it was during the COVID pandemic. We initially had a buyer back out with a few days to go in escrow. She had a game plan and other offers for us to consider immediately. One of Kacey's strengths is communicating and at no point were we in the dark about what was going on. Very happy with her and the job she did.— Seller
Kacey did a great job In helping us buy our home. We had made a house contingency offer from another state and it proved to be difficult because of closing date issues and dual house inspection problems. Kacey stayed on top of our changing situation and her optimism and diligence persevered. We definitely recommend her to anyone desiring a very professional and enthusiastic agent.— Nancy S.
Kacey was very helpful throughout the entire process of buying my first home. She was great about responding to my questions and provided me and my family with all the information and support that we needed in this process. I highly recommend working with Kacey if you are looking to buy a home.— Juan A.
Kacey made the experience of finding our home, both efficient and fun. She responded to our needs quickly and kept us alerted to any new houses that fit our preferences. She was also kind, funny, and incredibly friendly!— Catie M.
Kacey is extremely helpful and provides excellent customer service. She’s responsive to our needs and requests and we feel great having her represent us in our real estate transactions.— Deborah F.
Kacey is a true professional. She is well-connected in this housing market and I would easily choose her again to represent us in a future home purchase endeavor.— Buyer
