About Julie Smith

My Client-First Philosophy: There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a TIftarea real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.


This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Tifton, Chula, Omega, Ty Ty, Irwinville, and more areas, please contact me.


Not only am I committed to knowing everything I can about the Tiftarea real estate market, I am actively involved in my community as well.  The best way we can be involved is to serve through volunteering for various organization and programs.
