About Us

DJ Smith Property is a boutique real estate office, operating since April 2011. In the real estate industry, you often hear the phrase “Numbers game”. Some agencies tend to treat you or your property as “Just one of sellers / landlords” or “Just one of listings / rental properties”. Our agency does not play in this “Numbers Game” as we focus on the “Quality Game”.

We acknowledge that selling properties or managing properties is associated with tremendous responsibility and we commit ourselves to provide the highest-quality service to all our clients including sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants.   

DJ Smith Property provides the service not only to local clients but also to international clients. DJ Smith Property has a strong connection with the Japanese community in both Cairns and Japan, led by the principal, Miho Kumagae. DJ Smith Property has bridged business between Australia and Japan, and our clients are receiving this unique benefit.

Testimonials

I truly appreciate Miho and Darcy who assisted me to purchase a lovely unit in Cairns. As a buyer’s agent, they bid at auction on behalf of me. Though I was in Japan on the auction day, they communicated with me very closely all through the auction and understood what I wanted, and then succeeded to buy the unit for me.

It was a few years ago when I met Miho first time in Cairns. I was dreaming to own a property in Cairns, where I liked its layback life style and the location which is close to Asia including Japan. She showed me some units in a professional manner, but I couldn’t make a decision at the time.

The unit I have just purchased was in the complex Miho had shown me originally back then. She remembered my taste and gave me the proper information at the right time. Besides Miho’s caring customer service, Darcy’s powerful negotiation skill is DJ Smith Property’s strength. I believe their perfect teamwork is the reason why I have obtained this unit at favourable price. Now the unit is rented by DJ Smith Property and I am very comfortable to let them manage my unit. If you think to buy a property in Cairns, why don’t you ask DJ Smith Property?

Dear Darcy and Miho

Thank you for making the bumps along our life’s path a little less rocky.

You smooth over the rough edges of our day with your support and care.

There are no words to express our gratitude for all you’ve done.

Thank you so much.

I have been living in Australia for 20 years. During this period of time, I have moved several times and even sold a house 3 times. In my those experiences, the agent who sold my property most smoothly and successfully was Miho and Darcy. Since the property market was down, I was not confident to sell my property, but I wished to sell it because we had to leave Cairns. Miho and Darcy came to our place straight away for a chat and advised me to do an open house. Darcy took photos of the house with very nice camera and made up the beautiful advertisement. Their work was all very professional.

To my nice surprise, a lady who had come to view the property put the offer even before we did an open house. I was very impressed to see how Miho and Darcy cared about me and the buyer. Thankfully, the house was sold smoothly and successfully.

When we buy or sell a house, there tend to be some issues in the process from negotiation of the price and conditions to the settlement, which is really stressful. Through these processes, Miho and Darcy were very reliable as a liaison between a seller and a buyer. They also introduced us to somebody who looks after us to find a new house in Brisbane.

Both Miho and Darcy are experienced agent with trust and credit, and they are easy to talk with. I strongly recommend DJ Smith Property.

We would like to take this opportuinity to thank DJ SMITH PROPERTY for selling our first home.

Darcy’s respectful manner, his professionalism and capacity to listen and respond to our needs and interests are the qualities we admire most.

We believed in his integrity and developed a high level of trust; qualities that are not always present in the cut and thrust of buying and selling property.

After two not so great experiences with other local real estate agents & approx 4 mths out there in a quiet market DJ SMITH PROPERTY took on our property & had it sold smoothly & successfully within 2 weeks. A 100% fantastic end result.

The marketing process & all costs were clearly explained and also well managed.

The photographic presentation for use on the internet was superb, yet consistent with the reality of our home which was important for a prospective buyer. Every positive aspect of the property was highlighted, both in the pictures and in the description used in the marketing process.

Communication from Darcy & Miho was also excellent; professional, courteous and clear. Throughout the selling process from the negotiation of the contract price to settlement, we were kept informed at all significant stages.

Darcy’s optomistic approach allowed everyone to be able to focus by staying positive in getting the property sold, even dog minding our staffy in his car during open house inspections!.

We highly recommend Darcy for less stress in achieving great results.

It was 23 years ago when I purchased a villa in Sheraton Mirage.

Over the years the furniture of the villa had deteriorated and asked Miho to organize the replacement of the furniture and repair some damages. She understood what I wanted very well and looked after all the processes of the job by communicating with Mirage in very professional manner. I put the villa on the market afterwards. Thanks to Miho’s efforts, there was no problem in the building inspection with the sale.

Miho surprised me by receiving the offer with full asking price on the same day of the first newspaper advertisement!! I was expecting it would take 6 months at least, maybe 1 year to get my villa sold. I was amazed it sold so quickly. I appreciate DJ Smith property’s prompt and professional job.
