Inherent to the process of conducting successful business is the flexibility to adapt to inevitable change. Our company continues to adjust to this ever expanding and complex real estate marketplace, while still holding on to the fundamental principles that have made Oliver Smith Realty withstand the test of time. In 1939, our founder, Oliver A. Smith, Jr., had the gift of understanding the intrinsic value of real estate and possessed the vision to realize its future importance in a defined market. “It’s the promise of vision, tempered with the wisdom of experience”, aptly summarized our founders view of our company’s important mission.
I have proudly served at the helm of our company now for more than 30 years. Our firm has literally reshaped the way commercial real estate is regarded in East Tennessee; bringing Knoxville its first two regional malls, setting the trend for upscale commercial development and retaining a solid reputation for sound solutions by offering fully integrated services. Today, Oliver Smith Realty continues this tradition of being an integral part of this area’s growth. We continually endeavor to create a desirable synergy between the community and the projects at hand. By providing this broad spectrum of professional offerings, we have become a single point of contact for our clients’ real estate needs.
There is no substitute for extensive experience or depth of understanding. Through indispensable disciplines and a highly trained organization of real estate professionals, we continue to dedicate ourselves to providing real estate solutions to help mold our region’s landscape. With a strong entrepreneurial base, we strive to bring a powerful and unique perspective to each of our clients. We are thankful to those individuals and companies who have entrusted their interests to our company throughout 80 years. Under the new corporate title of Oliver Smith Realty and Development Company, Inc., we commit to continue as a leader in commercial real estate and development in our home of East Tennessee.
