More About Me

Smith & Associates' Top Agent for 2013

Originally from the Midwest, Traci moved to Florida to attend the University of South Florida and fell in love with Tampa. In 1986, Traci joined the real estate arm of Beneficial Corporation, working hand-in-hand with the development team of Harbour Island, a beautiful master-planned gated community in the heart of the city. Beneficial enabled Traci to groom her sales and marketing skills and gain experience in all phases of development while garnering strong intellectual capacity on the legal, financial, construction and environmental aspects of real estate. In 2000, with a successful Harbour Island buildout under her belt, Traci expanded to general real estate sales, helping both buyers and sellers throughout Tampa, with special expertise in luxury homes in south Tampa.

Traci has experienced and thrived in difficult markets, having worked through the late 1980's and early 90's when our country was facing a credit crisis as a result of the savings and loan debacle. During that time Traci developed an excellent foundation and skill set to guide her through the market's many cycles. In down markets, her quest to seek innovative marketing techniques combined with 26 years experience in the Tampa market, are the key elements to Traci's proven success

Indeed, Traci's integrity, experience and commitment has attracted a loyal and trusting client base. Today, Traci is a broker-associate with Smith and Associates Real Estate and is consistently one of the top producers in the Tampa Bay area. She has built a strong team of associates around her who share her commitment to providing a concierge level of service to all her clients.

In her spare time, Traci and her family - husband Steve, daughters Aubrey, 18 and Sydney, 14, and their dogs Oreo and Scotty - thoroughly enjoy all that Tampa has to offer, especially boating, and the girls' school activities.
