Teresa Smith is originally from Dallas, TX and graduated from University of Arkansas. She and her family moved to Flowery Branch in 2000 after visiting family in the area and falling in love with the charm of Flowery Branch, GA. Their cousins had recently moved from Texas to Flowery Branch and were building log cabin rentals on the lake near Aqualand Marina. After working together for several years, all of the Smiths started a boat rental business that consisted of 5 rental boats. Teresa decided that selling property on Lake Lanier would change other people’s lives the way her family’s lives had been changed PLUS she could show homes by boat when one of the rental boats were available. Fast forward to 2018 and her love for Lake Lanier and helping others move on or off of the lake hasn’t changed a bit.
Teresa has three grown sons with families who regularly come to the lake to boat, tube, wake board and paddle board. All of their friends still love to come out too and having a house full of people at the lake is as fun as it was when they were all much younger!
