Agent Spotlight: Claire Carter Smithson

I had the chance to sit down with Claire and talk about real estate and living in the central Arkansas area. We are so lucky to have Claire as part of our Homeward Realty team. Check out our convo:

Homeward: How did you get started in real estate?

Claire: I originally looked into real estate because I am a nosy. Loved all the HGTV shows and going to open houses! But then, I realized how fulfilling it would be to help families make that enormous next step in their lives and be a part of dreams coming true! I’m hooked and I don’t think I could ever do anything else.

Homeward: What areas do you cover in real estate?

Claire: I do mostly residential sales, but have done a few vacant land sales as well.

Homeward: Favorite place to eat in Central Arkansas?

Claire: My two favorite places are The Patio Cafe and Patti Cakes Bakery. Blue Sail Coffee is my favorite coffee (their Lavender Latte in on POINT!) There are of course several places that land in the second favorite category! Wunderhaus, Cross Creek, Stoby’s, Andy’s….

Homeward: Favorite things about Arkansas? (things to do, places to visit, etc.)

Claire: Being outside!! I am a summer person all the way. This State of ours is amazing during the summer. From hiking to camping to waterfall hunting.. you just can’t go wrong.

Homeward: Hobbies, when not working real estate?

Claire: I have three fur babies that I adore. And the cutest little fixer upper house that my husband and I love to work on!

Homeward: What makes living in Central Arkansas so appealing?

Claire: We have everything!

Homeward: What do you feel is the most important room in the house?

Claire: The most important room in our house to me, would be my office. It’s my very own little paradise. I have two walls of windows, lots of house plants, a massive desk and two white boards. It’s amazing what your mind can come up with when you have a dedicated space that holds everything you need for all kinds of planning and problem solving.

Homeward: Favorite vacation spot?

Claire: St. George Island, Florida. Sigh.

Homeward: Why Homeward Realty?

Claire: The people in this company are just as wonderful as the business itself. It’s a very rare thing to be able to surround yourself with people and business practices that truly care about the people we interact with.

Homeward: What is the most satisfying aspect of being a realtor?

Claire: I love being able to help families make such a big step. It creates a bond.

Homeward: What advice do you have for first time homebuyers?

Claire: Ask all the questions!! I know it’s scary and there are a lot of unknowns. That’s what I am here for! To pave the way and make sure everything is taken care of.

Homeward: Advice for sellers?

Claire: Start packing! For a buyer, it’s easier to envision a house as your own, without all the personal keepsakes and family photos of the current family.

Homeward: What do you want future clients to know about you?

Claire: That I really am in this business to help people. I am lucky enough to be in a profession that gets to help people make one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives. Whether this goes smoothly or not, can depend on the Realtor. There are always things that are unforeseen, but having a good representative can really help.
