REALTOR® MAGAZINE HONORS SCOTTIE SMITH, II WITH PRESTIGIOUS “30 UNDER 30” AWARD
DALLAS, TX – March 29, 2016 -- REALTOR® Magazine's "30 under 30" for 2016 was recently
announced honoring 30 of the country’s premier professionals in the real estate industry. This
year Dallas’ own, Scottie Smith II of Scottie Smith II & Associates was chosen out of nearly 400
applicants and will be featured in the May/June issue of REALTOR® Magazine.
As a native of Houston, Scottie learned how to make an impact early as the middle child among
his ten siblings, and that influence can be seen in the trajectory of his business. Scottie started
his agency with just one agent and since then the business has grown over 200% year after
year with more agents joining now one of the fastest growing independent real estate
brokerages in Texas.
Scottie’s mantra is: “I'm driven to empower the underdog with a goal of shattering the glass
ceiling between the haves and the have not’s.”
You don’t have to be a client of Scottie’s to get his insight on what it takes to be a homeowner
either. He recently authored “ From Decision to Close,” a book of practical fundamentals and
insight that gives people an honest and concise roadmap to homeownership. Scottie is making
sure people who are seeking to become licensed real estate agents get great knowledge and
training with the Lone Star Real Estate Academy, which he founded in late 2015. He has also
taken the charge to assist the underserved entrepreneurial community by creating the HUB
Space, a non-profit incubator to support minority-owned startups.
"It's beyond an incredible experience to be named one of REALTOR® Magazine's 30 under 30.
Many of the past winners are people I look up to as inspiration, and now I'm honored to be
among the ranks. At Scottie Smith II & Associates we strive to meet people where they are and
take them where they want to be. I know what it's like to truly want something but feel like it's
out of reach. Be it fear, financial hardship, or naïveté - these are the challenges I commit to
championing on behalf of our clients”, Scottie said.
Scottie Smith II & Associates is always looking for new agents to help people own one of the
biggest investments of their life, their home. Scottie and his agents know that the road to
homeownership can be challenging, and may not feel like an option for some. They want to
change this narrative and make clients’ experience one they will remember in a positive way.
"My goal is simple...To help People. My commitment to help is fueled by my passion to make a difference in the lives of my clients". Scottie Smith, a native of Houston,Texas, has an extensi....
