Tony Smith is a second generation North Carolina Realtor with over 30 years in the real estate industry. Tony holds the designations ABR, CRS and GRI. He is the original Platinum R for North Carolina and a member of the RPAC Hall of Fame.
Active in both his local and state associations, Tony has held a wide range of offices from President of the Charlotte Regional Realtor Association to Region 8 Regional VP for NCAR. Tony was elected by his peers to the office of 2015 President of the North Carolina Association of Realtors. In addition to his service to his local and state associations, Tony has also been chair of the Housing Opportunity Foundation and a member of the NAR MLS task force. Tony was named Charlotte Regional Realtor Association Realtor of the Year in 2004. Additionally, he is a NC Real Estate Commission approved instructor for the 4 hour CE Elective course, Keys to Selling HUD Homes in North Carolina and a licensed NC General Contractor.
Throughout his youth, Tony’s family moved frequently, crisscrossing the southeastern United States, finally settling in Charlotte in 1975. Though he is not a native Charlottean, Charlotte quickly became home. He married his wife Nancy in July of 2001, on top of Herbert Glacier in Juneau, Alaska. His time for hobbies is limited, but he enjoys spending time with his two grandchildren, and, any chance he gets, on the South Carolina coast with his toes in the sand and a drink in his hand.
While Tony has had a great deal of success listing and selling real estate throughout many different phases of the economy, he considers his true mission in the real estate profession advocacy for the American dream of home ownership. Tirelessly working with state, local and national groups to further the cause of home ownership, he is intensely passionate about and dedicated to the homeowner. Tony expresses his commitment best in his own words: “There’s more to real estate than just buying and selling. Nothing is more important than homeownership private property rights; advocating for that is more than what I do—it’s who I am.”
