Donna O. Smith



Vice Chair
Broker Involvement Council

The value I bring is my years of experience and involvement. I started my real estate career in a culture that disallowed young adults, especially married couples, to join the association and MLS. Several years of working as a real estate agent before being allowed to join the REALTOR® family gives me a clear view of the REALTOR® value. Since then, I have served the organization on a consistent basis at the local, state, and national level, including as a president, regional vice president, and chair of national committees. My years as a practitioner give me insights about our general membership. My 20 years as a broker in charge give me full view of the other side. My 43 agents keep me in tune with the real world of real estate and with their daily struggles and needs. I am extremely passionate about the industry and the value we bring to consumers. I intend to address the many challenges we face with vim and vigor as we work to protect home ownership. Problem solving and inspiring others are my specialties. There is no better joy than the sweet feeling of accomplishment.
