Smith & Associates Real Estate wins Inman Golden I Club


Tampa, Florida, October 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Smith & Associates Real Estate is pleased to announce its inaugural 2021 Inman Golden I Club Award. The award is the highest honor in luxury real estate and is presented to the best luxury agents and brokers in the country. Often awarded to brokerages located in major cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco or New York, Smith is the only brokerage in Tampa Bay to have ever been recognized for this prestigious award.

The Stephen Gay Group won the award for “Best Luxury Property Sales and Marketing Campaign 2021”. Stephen Gay represented Derek and Hanna Jeter in the sale of their waterfront estate on the Davis Islands. The home set a record for the highest residential sale in the Tampa Bay area when it closed for $ 22.5 million.

“We knew we needed a comprehensive marketing and public relations strategy that would respect our clients’ need for privacy while reaching the right luxury buyer for a home of this magnitude,” Gay said. “We have decades of experience representing buyers, sellers and investors who make informed decisions on epic properties.”

Smith & Associates is the luxury leader in Tampa Bay with over 25% market share (BrokerMetrics® from Stellar MLS data, 1M + YTD).

“We are thrilled to achieve national recognition for the work we do in Tampa Bay and proud to be part of this impressive group of winners,” said Bob Glaser, President and CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate.
