For Courtney Smith, real estate is about connection first. Sincerity and empathy are two personal characteristics he is expressly motivated by, and he works hard to maintain that positive reputation. When Courtney first meets a new client, he takes the time to consider their individual perspective. What is driving their decision to enter the real estate market, what are their goals, and what needs to happen to best meet those goals? Courtney trusts that the right and desirable result is within reach, especially when supported by the best-in-industry Compass network and team. His faith in the process, the people, and the outcome is genuine, and will give you the confidence that you’ve picked the right partner.
Each day is an opportunity in a real estate market like Northeast Florida. Whether your priority is waterfront, urban, or wide open spaces, there’s something for you. It is a market that stays consistently strong, pulling new full-time and seasonal residents from all corners of the country. For Courtney, every part of the process is exciting. Clients take precedence, but also important are relationships with other agents and industry representatives.
Originally from Springfield, Illinois, Courtney currently lives in St. Johns with his wife and his two children. He keeps up an active, work-hard-play-hard lifestyle, coaching his kids’ soccer teams, and taking advantage of trips to the beach, time spent outdoors, and weekend getaways. Always acting with integrity, Courtney is proud to be a positive figure for his children, and a reliable trusted partner for his real estate clients.
We had a fantastic experience with the Welch Team and our Agent Courtney Smith. For it is was very important to have a very experienced team at our site, as we just moved to the US from abroad and this was our first real estate purchase here. Courtney was super responsive and helped us with all our questions (some of them were not even close to being real estate related) and helped us within a few weeks to find the right home dormouse family... After we made an offer and the back office started to join, the experience kept this high level. Everybody we interacted with was super professional, reliable and delivered on point! They really helped us as inexperienced buyers to get trough this, partly complicated, process safe and sound. Thanks, guys! It was a pleasure and we will surely get back to you guys for future projects!
Recently purchased my home with Courtney Smith as my real estate agent and had an absolutely tremendous experience with all of the Welch Team staff. Kylene was very very helpful as well and stayed on top of all the small details that I would have missed. Highly recommend this crew!
