Past Client Testimonials

I was struggling to find the perfect condo for my dad in Halifax. I met Todd and immediately felt at ease about this daunting task bestowed upon me and that he was going to find the right place for my dad. Within a few short months we closed on a condo and my dad loved his new home. Several years later my wife and I were looking to upgrade to a new home. We called Todd, of course, and within a few months we closed on our forever home. Todd not only understands the real estate market in Nova Scotia but he has an engineering and construction background that is very handy and important when looking for a forever home or investment property. He was able to point out issues and other potential problems and give us an idea on cost to fix. We also found that he is very professional and a straight shooter. Todd has numerous contacts in everything you need as a home buyer from mortgage brokers to home inspectors. He ensured we got the best deal and looked at the right places. As I write this review Todd is helping us sell our adjacent lot. We will always call Todd and I highly recommend his services.


As first-time home buyers my partner and I were trying to find a home that fit everything that we were looking for and still be within our budget. Todd Not only was patient but very informative on every home that we viewed, was honest, and extremely knowledgeable when it came to homes that needed repairs or small projects done. His knowledge in home construction is top-notch and and put my partner and I both at ease knowing that we could trust what he was telling us. I couldn’t recommend a better real estate agent for first-time first-time home buyers or someone who is looking for an honest real estate agent who is not out just looking for a quick sale but honestly someone who is just looking for the best needs for his clients.


Agent Todd was a referral to us from my Todd’s co-worker Pat who had great success in buying two investment properties from Agent Todd. Agent Todd picked Todd up at the airport one day on a stop-over and showed him a couple homes.That was something certainly unexpected that he would go this far out of his way to service a client.

Well, it didn’t stop there. Over the next several months while we prepared to sell our home in Bowmanville, ON to move to the East Coast, we were kept updated on new homes that could be of interest so that on our house hunting trip we were well informed before we arrived.

We had only intentions to downsize to a modest house, but nothing suitable was found from the criteria we set out for Agent Todd. After discussing our ideas on saving and investing in a home for our retiring in 10 years, we were surprised when he suggested a more valuable home to purchase. At first we wondered if it was for his benefit, but we soon discovered it was “all about us”! Agent Todd had no concerns on his commission. In fact I bet he would have made more by selling us a modest home, as we would not have been happy there and likely resold in less than a year only to go to a much more expensive home.

Agent Todd explained that the home we eventually purchased was in one of the first phases of a new development destined to grow. He asked us which was more important: merely adding enough equity over 10 years to retire comfortably…or increasing the value of the home in less time to shave 2-3 years off the 10 years before retirement. By listening to his genuine concern for us, we are so happy we did. And the home he found us is incredible.

Agent Todd…or CallToddSmith is more than a person looking or his next transaction. We wish him all the best in his new venture in the Toronto area and for any of our friends out there…look him up when it comes time for you to sell. We are so happy that he is also working in our new area too for when we retire. We’ll be sure to call him again!

Thanks Todd from the Evans family! And thanks Pat for referring him to us.

I’ve purchased 2 homes and sold 1 through Todd. I found his construction and basement foundation background very helpfully to point out things I would have never thought of. Always available to help with questions and made buying and selling easy.

James Briggs

Todd has been our agent on two real estate purchases in our family. He is professional, organized, and highly knowledgeable about real estate. He works hard on behalf of his clients. We also really appreciated his engineering knowledge on the structural integrity of homes and basements, and the wide span of relationships that he maintains to provide referrals to proven. trusted vendors, brokers, and service people. We felt very lucky to have him as our agent!

Great service and extremely patient answering my many many questions. Todd walked me through the process of selling my home then tirelessly worked to find a new home suitable for me and my family. Todd’s background in the trades added value to the already fantastic service received. He made recommendations and pointed things out that I would not have noticed.
After the sale was complete I had questions and he was prompt to respond.
Thank you so much for everything!
