With a background in investing and property management and a head for numbers, Yolanda Smith is a natural Realtor with an unmatched passion for getting her clients what they want. "She's the over-achiever you want on your team," clients say, and there are several reasons for that.
As the former wife of an NBA star (#1, first-round draft pick), Yolanda spent many years creating and recreating a home for her husband and their three children. Buying and selling property in 10 states over 16 years, she understands the realtor's client's perspective better than anyone. Over the years, she became a key "go-to" resource for many of the other NBA associates - a network she remains close to as a current member of Behind the Bench (NBA Wives Association).
A San Jose State graduate, Yolanda completed her higher education with an MBA (Accounting emphasis) from University of Phoenix. She is also a Member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing; Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS); Volunteer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a participant in the Valley's Big Brother Big Sister Program; Member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc, and a host of other local and national charitable organizations.
She considers it a compliment that her large network of friends and colleagues often remark, "Call Yolanda, she'll make it happen." This passion and talent for connecting people to what they desire formed the basis for her career in real estate.
Buyers and Sellers in the Scottsdale and Phoenix areas have come to trust her real estate knowledge, strong negotiation skills and marketing expertise.
Her promise to clients is to become a lifetime resource for them. "It's not over just because the documents are signed," says Yolanda. "My clients are encouraged to utilize my skills and connections anytime. Particular people want a referral resource who's equally particular – that's me."
