About Jason Smith
Jason Smith is an entrepreneur, Realtor, investor, DOER, husband, father, and racing enthusiast. His journey to real estate success is interesting and inspiring.
Born and Raised in Evans Mills, NY he was raised in a blue-collar family. This is where Jason inherited his work ethic and “not afraid to get his hands dirty” life skills. It is also where he met his wife Sarah and began raising his 4 children: Ryland, Maverick, Everest, and Scarlett. Jason is an alumnus of Indian River Central School and NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, NC. Smith's passions are simple—bringing value to everything he touches and having fun while doing so.
Out of college, unsure what direction he wanted to go, Jason worked highway construction for the next 4-5 years. It is here that he reaffirmed the meaning of hard work and true grit! This experience and family cultivated many of the qualities Jason possesses today!
Jason started his Real Estate career in 2011 with a passion to do things differently than the status quo. He wanted to create mind-share and bring the most value he could to the real estate transaction. He directed his boundless energy to mastering the art of marketing and leveraging technology to assume the role of an industry leader. He reached and maintained his position “on the pole so to speak” ahead of the competition. He learned early on that harnessing and mastering the power of social media was central to his success. Others followed, but he remained in front by always innovating! The results thus far speak for themselves:

Competitive, compassionate, energetic, charismatic, inspiring, generous, and empathetic: These are just a handful of the things Jason strives to be.
Jason’s real estate success led to the birth of Jason Smith Real Estate in 2016. With a passion to redefine the local real estate market, Jason consistently raises the bar and is often viewed as the forerunner of modern-day real estate in the Greater Watertown area. Through systems, technology, amazing people in his world, and a little grit—Jason has become the areas number one Team!
In 2018 after many nights of speculation Jason and his wife Sarah would start a new Journey. With Sarah’s 10 plus years of being a mortgage loan originator they both made a life-changing decision to partner up and work side by side within the brokerage. Two opposite personalities with polar-opposite strengths. Jason refers to himself as the one who drives the bus, and Sarah is the one that makes him stop and change the oil and rotate the tires.
With COVID-19 challenging us with uncertainty, 2020 brought many new changes to us all—Jason and Sarah included. The cases were on the rise and NY started shutting down. Being deemed non-essential our family and company were left wondering what the future would bring. Many emotions would run through their minds, family being on the top of the list. For the first time in their careers, they would be forced to STOP and analyze. They had no control. Most people would panic, but for some reason, Jason was eerily calm. With family being of top concern Jason and Sarah discussed relocating to Florida, which leads us to today.
A new chapter begins, and the REALTY SMITHS are born. With their 20 plus years of combined experience developing processes, systems, unique marketing, and HARD WORK Jason and Sarah decided to re-brand and create an expansion market in the Bradenton/Sarasota Florida market. With huge, scary, audacious goals Jason and Sarah (along with their amazing staff, referral partners and our NY State of mind) will be bringing it to the SUNSHINE state and will now be servicing both the frigid cold of Northern NY and the beautiful sunsets of the Florida Gulf Coast! If you're looking for an expert-level, all-in, 100% Real Estate agent, then I know a guy, Mr. Smith of REALTY SMITHS of EXP REALTY.
About Sarah Smith
Sarah Smith is a wife, mother of four, Top-Producing Realtor and Entrepreneur. Born in Deland, Florida and raised in Rochester, NY, Sarah is a native Floridian but blessed to call both New York and Florida home.
Sarah started her career in Real Estate in 2006, just a few short years before the mortgage crisis. During that period she was recruited into the mortgage industry because of her proven ethics, honesty and positive energy. Sarah spent her time in the mortgage focusing on the under-served, finding mortgage solutions for people that were being ignored by the other banks. It was here she found her passion for being solution-oriented and working to help all people achieve the dream of home-ownership. To this day her customer-centric, genuine, and caring attitude guides her while representing everyone. During this time she also met and fell in love with her future husband, Jason Smith. Their shared passion for real estate and each other created a synergy that works seamlessly to this day. They found they had opposite strengths so when they combined themselves into one team, nothing was lacking. Sarah remained in the mortgage industry and Jason as a Realtor. They were able to create a new transaction management paradigm that accelerated and refined the process for all customers. Shortly thereafter, they went from a power couple to a family of 6 with Ryland, Maverick, Everest and Scarlett being added to the team. After months and months of speculation of whether they could enrich the team outside of the home as well, Sarah and Jason then decided in 2018 to join forces as husband and wife and theoretical business partners. Sarah’s almost ten-year background in the finance industry has helped lead the way to execute a “true” other half scenario in Jason’s vision that he had for the Real Estate company, Jason Smith Real Estate. It’s often said that Jason drives the bus and Sarah makes him stop, rotate the tires and change the oil. She took the bull by the horns and in 2019, even with it being a partial year, she sped up their buyer department growth and they helped more families than they thought possible. In 2020 Sarah was a Top Producer for their local board her first full year alongside her husband, teammate and true other half and mentor—while also taking care of their four children ages 6 and under.
