About Agi Vermes Smith
A degree from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business combined with 30 year’s experience in marketing and sales has made Agi stand out in her field. With her extensive background as a marketing consultant for publicly traded companies, Agi has the experience and tools to be thoughtful in the strategy development for her clients. Having obtained her license over 30 years ago, she has always believed in the great value and opportunity real estate presents.
Starting her career in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhoods of Brentwood Park and Beverly Hills, Agi specialized in high-end estate homes. Agi’s vision as a Luxury Lifestyle Ambassador has always been to offer Top-Tier service to all her clients. Her passion for creativity and marketing stems from her love of cooking - evidenced by the culinary degree she holds from the Institute of Culinary Arts. Her favorite style choices reminisce that of the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard and, of course, everything Wine Country. Agi has entrenched herself in Wine Country by volunteering for a multitude of charitable events- most notably, working as a volunteer coordinator for the world-class Napa Valley Wine Auction.
I just wanted to take a minute to say how happy we were to work with Agi and her entire team on the sale of our Napa home. We have known Agi for 11 years, as she was the realtor who helped us find and purchase that home in 2006, and now helped us with the sale.
We can't praise Agi enough. She saw in our unique home the same special features that we saw. We spoke with two other realtors when we thought we might be selling our home and they seemed to lack creativity or vision, and appeared only interested in an easy sale for themselves. Agi knew how special our home was with the amazing unobstructed vineyard views, and she listened to us on our thoughts. Instead of going with the comps, she set her own bar with pricing our property that we felt was truly worth of asking — and then she brought us two strong offers on the first day. We accepted an all cash offer well above our asking price on the first listing day. She made that happen!
As you well know, Agi has such a positive outlook and creative energy, and is a professional through and through — so we felt she was the right representative for us. Agi has a marketing vision and a real talent with making our home stand out beyond those others out in the marketplace — taking the marketing process several steps above and beyond what other realtors were willing to do; she was well organized and the transaction went very smoothly.
We hope to call Napa our full-time home one day in the future, and when that time comes, we will be contacting Agi — you are so fortunate to have her as part of your team!
Our sincere thanks and warmest regards,
Catherine A. Hofmann

Agi was the selling agent for a home I purchased in the beautiful Napa Valley. Agi had the home in immaculate condition for showing, highlighting all of the positive aspects of the property. She was professional, knowledgeable and personable. She followed up on every detail and made the entire experience very pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend Agi to anyone selling or buying a home.

Agi is your Go-To realtor for properties in the Napa Valley. Agi is a true professional and we trust her implicitly! She helped us not only with finding and purchasing our wonderful Napa home in 2006, but again when we were ready to sell it after 11 wonderful years there. Agi truly has a gift of creativity in the marketing her properties; she made our house not only stand out, but made the buyer really feel they were living the Napa lifestyle in that home. She placed a value on our beloved home (with an amazing unobstructed backyard vineyard and mountain view) that was higher than the immediate surrounding comps. While other realtors we spoke with just saw and priced the home in a tract neighborhood; the house was truly unique and offered the full Wine Country experience and Agi saw that difference - she looked beyond the immediate comps and priced it comparable to homes beyond our area that offered the similar view. With Agi's marketing expertise, and her relationships in the Napa Valley, she brought us two very solid offers before our listing even hit the MLS. Without even going forward with her scheduled open house, it sold on the first day she listed it for an above asking price; that response speaks volumes for what she does for her clients. We are so appreciative to Agi and her staff for making our transaction go through so quickly and smoothly. Finally, I want to say that we hope to make Napa our home again one day in the future, and when that time comes, we will be contacting Agi for her help to make that dream come true for us again.

Agi made my first time home purchase experience extremely smooth and efficient. She took the time to walk me through the whole process with great patience and a smile. I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely work with her again for future purchases and sales!
We have now worked with Agi on 5 different Real estate transactions. I think that says it all!
Agi is awesome! She is sincere, informed and committed. She is very knowledgeable and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!
