Once calling Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and St. Louis home, Kathy Smith previously lived along the shores of Lake Norman for over a decade and calls the Ballantyne office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Carolinas Realty home.
Whether you are looking to buy or sell, Kathy is the Realtor to know in this city. With a successful 19 year real estate career, she has sold on both sides of the North Carolina and South Carolina border. Maintaining high levels of success with her sales levels, she has earned awards and acclaim such as the "Circle of Excellence," "President's Club" and annual inclusion into the "Honor Society" with Berkshire Hathaway. Kathy is currently ranked in the top 16% nationally.
"Yeah, I love the recognition from my peers, but the real reward for me is when I wake up each day, knowing I have the ability to help someone make their dreams come true just by going to work." Kathy pauses, misty-eyed. "For me, that emotional paycheck is the best part of this job. That's why I love what I do."
A vibrant member of the community, Kathy currently serves on the Leadership Team for Carolina Voices' Mainstage Choir and on the Board of Directors for the Charlotte Pride Band. As Kathy lost her Mother in 2021, she has created a "Band Mom" Legacy fund in her honor. This 501(c)(3) organization will supply musical instruments to children whose families could not afford otherwise to get them one. "It's all about everyone helping out however they can," Kathy says. "The small efforts from each of us will make a huge impact in the overall community."
