About Lee Smith

Buyer Success Team · Realtor Associate
Lee Smith

Lee is an accomplished executive with a career in sales, marketing, client services and consulting in the retail, technology and home entertainment industries prior to entering the residential real estate business as a Buyers Agent with the Sue Adler Team.

Lee’s approach to Real Estate strongly emphasizes the discovery process, identifying the true needs of his clients. He applies that process and a dedication to providing the absolute best service to finding clients the right home. Lee’s selling philosophy involves providing buyers with the best available information to make the right choice for them, supporting that choice with great market knowledge and relying on his strong negotiating skills to get his clients the best possible deal.

After 12 years living in NYC, briefly in Brooklyn and then the West Village, Lee moved to Maplewood 21 years ago as his family began to outgrow their 4th-floor walkup. He commuted into the city for several years before starting his own businesses here in New Jersey. His insight into the communities and neighborhoods along the Midtown Direct line comes from working in these towns with homeowners, interior designers and builders when he was the owner of a home theater installation business with showrooms initially in Millburn, and later in Chatham.

As an avid cyclist, Lee’s intimate knowledge of the Midtown Direct towns comes from having passed through nearly every neighborhood at 12 – 16 miles per hour on a bike!

Lee helped us with our first home purchase. He was honest, friendly, professional and knowledgeable and willing to accommodate our schedules even if it meant showings first thing Sunday morning or after work during the week. He was willing to go the extra mile - whether it was to get us into see house we wanted to see or meeting a contractor to get an estimate on short notice. Lee was very attentive to our wish list and worked with us over a year-long house hunt that consisted of multiple bidding wars, one house where the seller backed out and ultimately culminated in the perfect house. We would recommend Lee to friends, family and anyone looking for a house.Read Less

I had expressed interest in a few Maplewood NJ houses online before being contacted by Lee Smith, Buyer Specialist of The Sue Adler Team - in one quick phone call he was able to gain a quick appreciation for my situation and was immediately able to start sending through relevant properties. As a first time buyer and not being from the US, Lee explained the entire process in detail and drove me around the Maplewood neighborhoods providing a quick and enjoyable history lesson. I found his honesty about the properties, prices and market conditions refreshing and took his advise on everything from making an offer that was realistic (not too low, but not too high either!), attorney, surveyors and mortgage firm. I was lucky enough to have an offer accepted on a house I saw on the first day and Lee and his team guided me through the whole process which otherwise would have been daunting and may not have resulted in me finding what I hope will be my home for years. I would highly recommend Lee and the Sue Adler Team and have already done so with some colleagues and friends already!Read Less
