Carmel, IN — January 24, 2009 — Kristie Smith signed on for a fifth year as Radio Disney’s key real estate sponsor in Central Indiana. With her energetic voice, positivity about the real estate market and infectious jingle that keep kids singing, Kristie Smith has become a household name—and real estate superstar.
Each day Kristie runs into someone who says, “You’re not THE Kristie Smith, are you?” It’s become a joke with Kristie’s family and with her real estate team in the ERA offices. But Kristie’s fame is serious business with young kids (especially the girls). Kristie keeps a Sharpie pen with her at all times—always ready for the next autograph requested, and she keeps Disney gifts in her office for youngsters who visit her Carmel office.
“I am so grateful for all the business and growth that our Indy Homes Real Estate Team has experienced over the past few years. We have not been impacted at all by the perceptions of the real estate market,” says Smith.
Kristie and her team have big plans in 2009! She wants to continue to grow the team’s business as she has each year for the past seven years. Kristie desires to get involved more in the community this year through groups like Lacy Leadership, The Tocqueville Society and MIBOR. She plans to increase her philanthropy and charitable giving by 50 percent. And, of course, she will continue to support her favorite local station, Radio Disney.
