Rachel Smith

Agent with RE/MAX Results | Sales Director

Being in Real Estate makes me feel rewarded every day because I get to help clients and solve problems. Real Estate has allowed me to focus on What I Can and Love to Do!... Planning, Analyzing, Marketing, Strategizing, Seeing and Interpreting Trends, Negotiating, Sourcing, Creating Contingency Plans, Financial Planning, Costing and Pricing! I am passionate about using these skills to benefit my clients during one of the most important decisions they will ever make.

Rachel grew up on a farm in a small town in Illinois and knows how hard her parents worked to support the family. That hard work ethic has stuck with her throughout her life. She graduated from the University of Kansas with a Business degree and went on to spend 16 years in corporate retail in executive-level positions at Target Corp and Gander Mountain. She felt unfulfilled in corporate life and made the switch to real estate. Since joining our team she quickly became one of our top producing agents selling over 60+ homes annually. Her passion for helping her clients achieve their goals also applies to agents on our team. She has a leadership role within the company as Sales Director coaching, mentoring, and ensuring agents on our team are set up for success within their real estate careers.

Rachel is married to her husband Jason. They have two amazing children — Lottie, born in 2011, and Riley, born in 2013. Outside of work she loves spending time traveling with her family, reading a good book, learning how to garden, and going to Hot Yoga.

My first job was… Making Pizzas at Casey’s!

When I’m not working, you’ll find me… At a yoga class or hanging out with my family.

The best “unknown” restaurant I’ve been to is… Primo Plates and Pours in Long Lake.

My favorite food is… Homemade pasta and Bolognese that my husband makes!

Favorite vacation spot… Cabo.

Client Reviews

Our agent Rachel Smith was the absolute best. She went above and beyond to get this to happen. I would highly recommend her and this company. We’ve bought and sold many homes and I have to say this has been the best experience yet. Thank you so much Rachel. Connie Plourde The above review was for our new home that we purchased. This is a new review on the sale of our previous home. Rachel Smith was our realtor. Again she really went above and beyond to get our home sold. We are elderly and have had some health issues. Rachel stepped up to the plate and took care of everything. From the painting and carpeting to the smallest detail. We never could have done this without all her personal help. I would recommend her for all of your real estate needs.

Connie Plourde

We LOVED working with Rachel through the whole buying and selling process. She is so knowledgeable about the housing market and we always felt very confident in her representing us. You can tell she enjoys her job and she's also very personable and authentic, which is so important when you're making one of the biggest decisions of your life. We would hands down recommend her and the Kerby & Cristina group to anyone looking to make a move. Thanks, Rachel, for all you do!

Chelsea Fadden

I found a great real estate agent. Her name is Rachel. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful during my home buying experience. As I was moving from another state to the Minneapolis Area my questions were many during the buying process and Rachel answered them all. Rachel also did a great follow up after my purchase in asking if I had any questions or other concerns. Would I recommend Rachel as your agent if you are buying or selling? Absolutely.

Sam Lowsie

Rachel and her team did an outstanding job supporting us on the sale of our house. We truly cannot say enough good things about her. From the very beginning, she was very flexible and resourceful as we started the discussions on the process of selling our house. Due to a number of circumstances beyond our control, we had to put our house on the market later than we had originally intended, selling it long after we had moved out of Minnesota. Because of the COVID pandemic, we were not able to return to Minneapolis to get the house ready for sale ourselves, as we had originally planned. Rachel went above and beyond, supporting us at every turn, in spite of us not being able to be there in person. She had the knowledge and the team to get our house market ready with great curbside appeal. She provided us with her valuable expertise and insights, providing trusted guidance throughout the entire process of getting our house ready for sale and putting it on the market. We received many compliments about our house and received an offer well above what we were expecting, thanks to her and her team’s hard efforts. We would, and we absolutely do, recommend Rachel to anyone considering a change in housing in the Twin Cities area!

Rachel was a top notch agent. She kept me informed thoughout process, was so knowledgeable with each phase, and definitely had my best interest in mind when negotiating . She was always reachable, and explained thoroughly what was happening and what was next, I will without a doubt use her again for any transactions I may need in the future.
