Cara Smith

As the saying goes, I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could. For the past 15 years, I have been proud to call San Antonio my home and love the friendliness I have found here. Drawn to Texas for the quality of life, boundless opportunities, and overall affordability this city provides, my husband and I relocated from Southern California as newlyweds in 2006. We were thrilled to buy our first home in San Antonio shortly after our move. My 10-year-old son keeps me on my toes with interests in taekwondo, violin, and a foray into learning to speak Mandarin. While spending time with my family, I enjoy working in our yard, home decorating, and design.

Before serving as a REALTOR®, I spent 25 years working in the financial services industry. My experience spans investment advisory, mortgage servicing, project management, and regulatory banking compliance. These fields required attention to detail, large-scale planning, and perhaps most importantly, an ability to listen and bring people together to reach a common goal – a crucial component to any real estate transaction. Additionally, I am an active investor in the San Antonio real estate market dating back to 2009, so I understand the process of searching for just the right home to meet your criteria.

Home is a special place where priceless memories are made, and that place is made even more special by YOU, the people who live there. Whether you are buying, selling, leasing, or investing, it would be my honor to serve as your REALTOR®.

My husband and I had interviewed a few realtors and with all, we had expressed our concerns about the sale of our house. The difference with Cara and the others was that before she left our home, she stated she was going to do her homework and brainstorm some possible solutions. And that she did. Cara emailed us a few options with each indicating good possible outcomes...all before we contracted her services. After that, there was no question who we wanted to represent us.  Cara recommended helpful tips in the staging of our home and with the changing of the housing market, she guided us with what we were comfortable on the sale price. We reviewed the pictures and the description of our listing before going live and my husband and I were very impressed and pleased with the final product.  Our open house was a success and we were fortunate to have multiple offers! Cara's outline of the pros and cons of each offer was beneficial in choosing the best home buying candidates and we were able to go under contract in less than a week!!  Cara Smith is a go-getter and her work ethic is top-notch. Our family was very fortunate to have met and work with Cara.

Cara was a Godsend to us! We were in the market to sell our house and she walked us through every step of the way. She even offered to help clean sections of our house! She answered all my questions and was always available to me. We got a GREAT deal when selling our house and I would highly recommend Cara for anyone that is selling their house!  'Wooo!!’  We came out on top, thank you Cara!

Cara has assisted us in purchasing a lot and building a house (currently under construction). She has been extremely helpful and efficient in reviewing numerous documents and details as we progress through the process. Cara has been a step ahead of us throughout the project and her expertise and knowledge of the San Antonio area has been a tremendous assistance to us. Cara is a valuable asset in a real estate transaction!

Cara fully anticipated our needs, always arriving with a creative, optimistic, and effective approach to both the expected and unexpected challenges that come with selling a home. I've worked with a number of realtors over the years, but Cara stands out because of her kindness, energy and solution-oriented approach. She went the extra mile for us, and kept in contact through every step of the process. No question was too small for her to answer. Cara sells homes from start to finish - literally. Even after we were gone, Cara worked with movers, inspectors and repairmen to make sure that the house was clear, secure, and in tip-top shape for the new owners. If you're looking to sell your home, look no further than Cara Smith. She's got you covered.

We're beyond grateful we found her.  She was extremely helpful and actually cared.

” ~ Andrew Marconi

Cara was incredible!  She worked day in and day out to help me find a new place to live.  I let Cara know that I needed to find a new place quickly, and she really worked so hard and drove all over the place to help me find the perfect home that met all of my requirements.  I could not be more grateful for the help she provided to me, as I would not have been able to do this without her!  She didn’t treat me like just another client, she treated me like a friend, and that more than anything was such a nice feeling to really know she was on my team and wanted what was best for me as a person instead of pressuring me to just accept the first place we found. I appreciate Cara’s hard work and I would recommend her to anyone I know as an incredible resource for finding a new place to live!
