Our "Cometeers" > Layne Smith
If you're looking for someone to represent you who is organized, on time and has outstanding communication skills, Layne Smith is the Realtor® for you!
Over 96% of the homes sold or for rent are initially found on the internet. Layne's appreciation for technology and social media will give you the best possible online presence if you are buying, selling or need property management. Matching people with properties is Layne's specialty.
After graduating from Western Washington University in 2001 with a degree in Communication Sciences Layne decided to make the Central Coast her home. Having lived in several communities in San Luis Obispo county, she has unique knowledge of the area. This, combined with her background of serving customers for 16 years, enables her to really listen to her clients and find the exact property they are looking for!
In her spare time, Layne is active in the San Luis Obispo Women's Soccer League, loves to travel and likes to improve on her extensive knowledge of beer.
Matching People with Properties
Realtors® can be stuffy and misleading, but Layne is not! She is smart, straightforward and has a great sense of humor. The greatest payoff for us is having a house we love and enjoying the process! Layne is interested in making her customers happy, not just making a sale. She really took into consideration who we are and what we were looking for. In finding a new house for my family, it was important to find the right "fit" and Layne understood what that meant to us. She was able to help us navigate the world of real estate smoothly and painlessly.

Friendly, patient, and tenacious. I worked with Comet for over a year looking for just the right home. They showed me just about everything in town and were happy to do it. We eventually found exactly what we were looking for. Thanks Tim, Hayley and Layne. Customer for life.

After working with Comet Realty, we would never use anyone else to buy a home. We have worked with real estate agents before, but often found that they were unable to deliver on initial promises or expectations. In comparison, working with Layne and Hayley at Comet Realty was straightforward and very pleasant. Layne told us exactly what to expect from the start and what we needed to consider in this active market. Layne worked tirelessly with other real estate agents and our lender to ensure the contact negotiation and inspections were completed efficiently and effectively, and she was always willing to do additional research to address questions related to our specific property and requirements. Layne seemed to have an intuitive grasp of what would work best for us and our lifestyle, and alerted us to potential properties or considerations that we were unaware of. She always conducted herself ethically towards us, as well as the other agents and sellers. Layne remained calm and professional even when last minute inspection and lending issues arose and always found mutually beneficial solutions to any challenges. Not matter what the issue or question, Layne and Hayley dealt with it in a timely and professional manner. Layne is very personable, patient and honest and it was a pleasure working with her. She is up to date with real estate regulations, market conditions and technologies, all of which made our home buying process easy and successful. Even after we closed on our home, Layne continued to assist us in the transfer process due to circumstances that caused us to be out of state during the home changeover. She has watered our garden, arranged for services to be connected, and even checked in on our property until we can return! Throughout the entire process we felt cared for as individuals and, most importantly, I could trust Layne and Hayley to follow through on their promises. If we had not used Comet Realty, it is likely we would not have successfully purchased our current home. They ensured the process was efficient and that any unforeseen circumstances were addressed in a timely and effective manner. We cannot recommend Layne, Hayley and the Comet Realty team highly enough for anyone who wants individualised, competent, and caring home buying or selling services. Thank you Layne, Hayley and Comet Realty!

Comet Realty did a very fine job representing us in the purchase of a condominium in SLO in early 2014. They were very conscientious, and the transaction proceeded smoothly. Layne is also managing the property since we bought it.

Comet Realty rocks! I've bought three investment properties with them and Layne manages them all. They make my life so much easier.

Layne at Comet Realty placed us in a great rental house. We can't thank her and Comet Realty enough for going above and beyond our expectations and on such short notice.
