Bringing Families And The Beach Together
Get to know Karen Smith
The beach has been my part time home since I was a little bitty girl and has been my full time home for over 29 years. Quite honestly I got tired of seeing the beach in my rear view mirror and made the move. In trying to write my own bio I find it near to impossible so instead I will tell you why I love being a Realtor on our precious beach.
When I was a little girl my grandfather and my dad were contractors and later we had a Real Estate company right on Rucker Blvd. I was not a natural born Realtor and when my dad suggested that I become a licensed Realtor I stomped to a class at the college very grudgingly. Curt (that is what we called him) asked me to get my license so I could do more than work on just our family owned stuff. I think I said something sweet like “over my dead body” Well I am very much alive and I am really loving what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else.
I have a motto that I really strive to live by and you will see it on everything that I write and it is….”The only people we have to get even with are those that have helped us.” My list is long and I hope yours is too. I used to wonder if I could make a difference by being a Realtor or maybe I needed to be someone in a field that was more giving. I have found that I can make a difference and this can be my mission just like any other. So I want to end with a heartfelt thank you to all my customers, my Realtor friends and my precious people I work with that make this such a fun and exciting career.
