About

 

Hello and a genuine warm welcome to you.  

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me.   

        From my home town in Birmingham, Alabama, I moved to New Orleans in early April of 2002 for a job transfer in Construction Equipment Sales and Management.  This was an industry that I had worked in previously for over seven years and had truly excelled.   With a construction equipment sales and management background, it seemed to be a natural transition for me into the world of real estate.     

         Upon moving into the city, right away I was taken with the uniquely historic and truly charming architecture of the city.  The many different and varying neighborhoods, the wonderfully friendly and kind spirit of the people of the city and all of the opportunity that I saw for growth within the city, personally and professionally.   

Within six months of settling into the city, I enrolled in night classes to work towards earning my Real Estate educational requirements, so that I could then take the real estate licensing exam.   In early 2003, I acquired my real estate license and went to work as a Full Time Realtor.   After making my rounds and interviewing with all of the other real estate firms throughout the city, I wisely chose to work with the local real estate firm Gardner Realtors;  as I readily recognized Gardner Realtors as the local authority of all things real estate.  I have worked full time at Gardner Realtors for 15 years and have 100% truly loved working with the Gardner Realtors family and real estate firm.   I often share with both clients and colleagues that one of the secrets to my success and my clients success is the never-ending support, the cutting edge technology provided and the worldwide visibility that our clients property listings receive through Gardner Realtors.   

For me and my entire team, which is comprised of four other full time Realtors, we all have a tremendous sense of pride in our profession and genuine respect and commitment for the responsibilities and obligations that we have to our clients.   Our role as a Realtor is to expertly guide and navigate the home buying and home selling process with our clients.   This is a role and responsibility that often takes on many different hats; from that of being at times a counselor, to helping guide one with the financing, navigating the home inspection process and appraisal challenges and many other issues that will inevitably present themselves as one progresses through buying and/or selling a home.   I truly understand how overwhelming the whole process can be.   My role for our clients is to personally be involved in every single aspect of their real estate transaction.    With over fifteen years of professional real estate experience, with the last ten plus years as The Top Realtor in the metropolitan area and with the greatest number of closed transactions consistently, year over year, the vast experience that I and my entire team bring to the table legitimately benefits our clients from beginning to end.    

There is no situation in a real estate transaction that I have not already seen and successfully worked through.  With over 1,500+  successful transactions under my belt, I have the tried and tested experience, with over a decade and a half of trusted market knowledge and the authentic know how to help accomplish my clients goal, no matter how large or small.   

What motivates me to get up each day, is the mission that I have signed on for with my clients.   I often will share with others that  "the house" is really a symbol for solving some need in a person's life.   Our life's work as a Realtor is to effect a positive change in other's lives through navigating the home buying or selling process.   I genuinely love what I do each and every day and would welcome the opportunity to share with you how myself and my entire team will successfully accomplish your real estate needs as well.   

Please do not hesitate to call on me at anytime. 

Thank you again graciously for taking the time to read this and learn more about me.

 

All of my very best,

Chris M. Smith, Realtor for Life

Chris Smith is the only realtor you should consider hiring, it's that simple. There isn't enough space to detail the excellent experience my husband and I had with Chris when we recently sold our home but, I'll give a few examples. Prior to hiring Chris, we had a very bad experience with another realtor (fired her) and were more than a little gun-shy - think PTSD. From the outset, Chris sensed this and put us at ease with his positive - but honest - attitude, respect for our opinions and his expertise of the real estate market and market trends. Upon signing with him, Chris told me, "I've got this." Well he meant it! Within a week of listing the property it sold and we went to Act of Sale a month later (the property was on the market for 5 months and there were 3 failed contracts with the other realtor). Chris is the hardest working person I've ever met and makes himself available to his clients 24/7. He calls/texts back immediately. If Chris cannot speak for some reason (if he's in a meeting, etc.), he will text back immediately and tell you when he can. Perhaps most important of all, we felt Chris represented us - in this case the sellers - first and foremost. We felt he had our backs and was concerned with getting the best deal for us, his clients. We never felt he was worried about his commission. We trusted Chris and his advice unconditionally. In the future, Chris will be the only realtor we will use and I've been singing his praises to everyone I know. It's rare to happen upon a business, vendor or service-provider that gives such excellent service but, Chris is that rare bird. I suggest that you run - don't walk - to him! You won't be disappointed. -Shauna Grissett May 23, 2019

Chris Smith will go the extra mile every time to ensure that your real estate transaction is satisfactory and successful. He was such a rockstar for the sale of my house!!! There was no detail that he did not fully oversee and vet to ensure total satisfaction and ease for me during an unstable time while trying to relocate and sell my house. I highly recommend him to every one!!! -Anthony "Jack" Bartlett May 7, 2019
