A Personal Message From Ted Smith

Ted Smith’s Bio from West Austin Marketplace on YouTube.


Ted Smith Edward (Ted) Smith has been buying and selling his own properties for 35 years. A former assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin and a technical communication consultant and trainer in Austin for 28 years, Ted recently returned to Texas after an 8-year stint in Washington, DC, where he started his formal real estate career as a REALTOR in 2011. Ted has worked with many first-time buyers, as well as with sellers and buyers moving up, downsizing, moving into and moving out of Washington, DC. (And he still maintains an extensive referral network in DC for anyone considering a move there.)

After living in a walkable city for 8 years, Ted’s passion in real estate is walkable neighborhoods – communities centered on a school, a grocery store and other shops, restaurants, and recreational amenities all within a 15-minute walk. You can see more of these Austin neighborhoods and more information about walkability on Ted’s Facebook business page, WalkableAustin, US.

It is a common proverb in Texas that “people like to do business with people they like,” and that encapsulates Ted’s philosophy about his real estate practice. Whether it’s entertaining new clients or repeat clients as friends over home-cooked dinners, or celebrating Thanksgiving with his Holiday Pie Party, or participating in community fundraisers for causes dear to him and his clients, Ted’s emphasis is on the relationship before the transaction. As he says, “I want to be your REALTOR for life!”
