About Kevin W. Smith

The success my business is sustained by the relationships I create. My team specializes in the marketing, purchase, and/or “1031 exchange" of distinctive residential, commercial, vacation rentals, business sales and investment properties along the Greater area & coast of San Diego, Orange County, and communities of Southern California.

IRS 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange is an area I pride myself on in my ability to execute wealth-building strategies for my clients. The power of a 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange is the ability to meet investment objectives without losing equity to taxation. I collaborate with a variety of professional partners and experts to provide you with tax avoidance strategies that many investors may be unaware of.

Strategic Real Estate Transactions - The greatest asset is the collective expertise and experience of my professional network.

Whether selling, buying, or refinancing your residence, vacation or income property, my connection in my network of professionals will help add value to your real estate transactions. I collaborate with experts across many fields to formulate an investment strategy to maximize your overall goals for you and your family.

First Team Real Estate is the largest independent brokerage firm in California and is ranked #11 among the largest privately held firms in the nation. Headquartered in Orange County, First Team was founded in 1976 by President and CEO Cameron Merage with just five agents in one office.
