“I specialize in whatever my client wants,” says AC Lawrence real estate agent Tempestt Smith. And if that means honesty and a high degree of customer service you can count on her to deliver both. With a diverse background in law, and wedding and event planning, she knows just how to blend the business of real estate with its emotional counterpart. Light-hearted, yet professional to the core, Tempestt steadfastly gets the job done to every client’s delight.
Dedicated, persistent and empathetic, Tempestt knows what it takes to be a good agent. From first meeting to lease signing, she perseveres until the perfect home is found. She fully understands that finding the home of your dreams is one of life’s most fulfilling endeavors. With that knowledge in hand, this is one agent who balances the seriousness of apartment hunting with an experience that puts a smile on everyone’s face.
Tempestt got her start in New York and has resided in a half dozen states since that time. Today she’s back home having attended Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn and graduating from Saint John’s University in Queens with a degree in marketing.
