F Ron Smithagent
After 25 years and over $1.3 billion in real estate sales, I collaborated with four talented associates and founded Partners Trust Real Estate Brokerage and Acquisitions in 2009. In just five years, Partners Trust has sold over US $5 billion in real estate with 200 associates in eight offices. One of the key elements to the immediate success of Partners Trust is the company’s ability to network directly with the best realtors in their markets. I am a proud co-founder and President of Leverage Global Partners, which aligns the most prestigious independent real estate brokerage firms from around the world. I credit my long-term success to my local expertise and strong community connections. I introduce my clients to both a home that fits their needs, and a neighborhood and community lifestyle that matches their interests. As an expert in new construction and advisor to my clients in everything from home staging to color palettes and landscaping, I have successfully represented over US $1.3 billion in transactions. I live in Brentwood on LA’s Westside with Tracy, my wife of 26 years. I am enormously proud of our sons, Evan and Brandon. I enjoy travel, fitness, good coffee and live music. I am an active supporter of numerous charitable organizations, including LA Family Housing and Concern Foundation for cancer research. I am proud to be a member of the Executive Committee of USC’s Lusk Center for Real Estate.
