We help you turn data into information, and information into knowledge!

rolandHello! My name is Roland Smets. At the tender age of 12, I told my parents that I did not want to stay in Europe and that one day I would move to the United States. As all parents do, they just said “Sure you will”. I loved all sports and studied Physical Education at the University of Gent, but realized that to make a career and leave Europe, I needed a more “applicable” degree and went on to complete a 2nd degree in Information Technology.

After a few detours through South Africa, Scandinavia, Greece, just to name but a few, I was lucky enough to settle in Orange County and instantly knew this was where I would lay my roots. Fast forward a number of years, and voila, I have been in the United States for almost 20 years.

After making my way across to the United States as a Technology Executive, I got bitten by the Real Estate Bug in a big way. I specialize in using online technology and tools that help buyers and sellers make the best possible choices at every step of the home buying or selling journey. My goal is to empower my clients by providing them with meaningful data so they can be prepared to make the best decisions.

I don’t chase deals – I want to help, and believe that when I do the right thing by providing relevant data, great customer service and a human touch to the process – the deals will follow. I help people by transforming a complex and confusing process into a straightforward and satisfying process.

After having been a resident of Coto de Caza for 15 years, I decided to move closer to the beach and have been living in San Juan Capistrano for 4 years.

I would love to get to know you a little better, so give me a call or send me an Email or Text so we can set up a “coffee meeting” and discuss real estate, sports, business, technology or just reminisce about the beautiful part of the world we get to enjoy here every day.

Have a great day and I hope that our paths will cross one day!
