About Smooth Closing
Smooth Closing is a real estate company based out of Austin, TX! We started buying houses in 2007, and have purchased over 160 houses since 2014. We use that experience to help make the process as easy as possible for the Seller and tackle any situations that arise, ensuring a Smooth Closing. We buy properties from all different types of homeowners in all situations, whether it’s someone behind on their payments, landlords with occupied rental properties who are tired of the business, or folks who just want to sell their house without any of the hassles of a retail sale.
While we are Austin based, we have purchased houses in 12 counties (so far) in Texas, including San Antonio, Houston, Corpus Christi, and the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex! We also buy houses in Ohio, Arizona, Florida, and Nevada to name a few. If you are a homeowner anywhere in the country, we would love to help!
We also buy them in very unique situations, like a residential home that was being used as a winery, or from a homeowner who insisted that we never meet and that I could not view the home in-person prior to purchasing it, or even buying a package of 18 duplexes on a single street without a homeowner’s inspection on any of them (these are real experiences we’ve have had).
Like many others, I wasn’t born in Austin but I got here as fast as I could! After growing up in Ohio, I moved to this beautiful city after college, and have been here ever since. I met my future wife (7th generation Austinite!) shortly after moving here, and I’m happy to say I’ll live here for the rest of my life. To me, the most striking part of Austin is still the greenery, something you don’t see in most other cities. Even after 14 years of living here, I still enjoy looking at all of the trees while driving West on 290 and 360. There aren’t many places where the saying “not a cloud in the sky” can be interpreted literally at times, and I’m still amazed every time it happens here.
Meet The Team
At his core, he is a problem solver with an endlessly positive attitude. Most people only buy or sell a home a few times in their life, and the process can be very confusing at first. After hundreds of real estate transactions, he knows exactly what to do and how to do it. He loves trying to find ways to help homeowners, whether it’s buying a property they no longer want, or personally helping them move after a 50-year homestead. There is nothing more satisfying than fixing a problem that was previously considered unfixable. Even if he’s not the best option for you in your situation, he will let you know and still do anything he can to help you achieve your goal.
Zaman’s love for community led to his passion in real estate, but that isn’t where his story began. Rather, he graduated with a degree in civil engineering and worked in construction management. During his years in construction, he saw first-hand the importance of being trustworthy and trusting the people around him, and he brings these qualities and experiences to real estate. In life and business, he takes a people-first approach. He knows that behind every seller and buyer, there is a human being with a story and believes in building a meaningful connection to understand their needs and goals. With his good old “get ‘er done” attitude, Zaman dedicates himself to helping you.
Outside of real estate, you’ll find Zaman looking for a new restaurant to try or spending time with friends and family. Along with his University Professor, he also works on bringing together like-minded young professionals to support each other on their journeys.
Chris has 5 years of experience in client outreach. He loves assisting his clients and expanding his real estate knowledge whenever possible. When he’s not immersed in real estate, he’s modifying cars or battling friends on the chess board.
