A licensed agent since 1993, Rebecca Smeraldo’s knowledge of the Valley and its real estate is unmatched. A passionate and enthusiastic professional who always puts her clients’ best interests first, Rebecca brings integrity, enthusiasm and expert negotiating skills to The Agency.
Specializing in Arizona’s South East Valley, particularly Ocotillo, Arcadia and Old Town Scottsdale, Rebecca serves as an indispensable guide, helping her clients navigate the most important transactions of their lives with patience and drive. After owning her own successful business in the Valley for 25 years, Rebecca has extensive knowledge of the logistics of the community and well-honed negotiating skills that have proven invaluable in real estate.
Rebecca joins The Agency from Keller Williams East Valley, where she sold 33 homes in just eight months in 2018. She got her start in real estate hostessing for Saddleback home builders in Scottsdale before working as a sales agent for Jackson Properties New Homes, where she learned the ins and outs of on-sight construction from the ground up. She went on to sell numerous homes at Finley Farms in Gilbert before joining her late husband in opening a popular wholesale bakery with strong roots in the local community.
Originally from Long Island, Rebecca comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, and was instilled with business savvy from a young age, taking over the family business, “Becky’s Bagels,” in Babylon, New York in 1986. Her ambition, excellent communication skills and thorough follow-through have earned her a place among the city’s most distinguished agents.
An avid philanthropist, Rebecca supports Kwamie Lassiter Foundation, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, and St. Jude Foundation, in addition to volunteering for charitable sporting events throughout the community. She enjoys watching professional, college and high school baseball and basketball in the Valley, day trips to Prescott, Payson, and Crown King, wine tasting in Jerome and Cottonwood, going to the beach in San Diego, traveling, and socializing with friends and family—especially if karaoke is involved.
