The Smith Story

Started in 1969 by Mary Dupree Smith, Smith & Associates has grown from a single office with 15 employees to more than 300 associates and 40 staff spread among 6 offices throughout the Tampa Bay area. With annual sales of $1.3 billion and over 2,600 transactions a year, Smith has the highest per-agent productivity in Tampa Bay and real estate expertise unmatched in the marketplace.

Smith has also been a leader in adoption of digital marketing and technology, growing its local heart while expanding its global reach via affiliations with Luxury Portfolio International®, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and London-based Mayfair International Realty. The company has a diverse portfolio of individual clients as well as the industry’s top developers, affording Smith exclusive representation of more than $2 billion in new developments throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Celebrating its 50th year in business, Smith owes its longevity to its associates, who take a personal interest in every client while embracing their communities via philanthropic outreach and giving back. Smith agents’ love for and involvement in their communities provide both market knowledge and a competitive edge in the real estate process, even in an age when technology plays an important role.
