glowing personality

I interviewed several agents before deciding on Teresa. Her knowledge of Lake Lanier properties, impressive sales record, glowing personality and professional team outclassed all others! She took charge right from the beginning with the design and implementation of a marketing and sales plan. THE END RESULT… WE SOLD OUR HOUSE IN ONE DAY WITH A FULL-PRICE OFFER! During the escrow process Teresa handled every detail like a tactical wizard. Teresa and her team made it happen for us and I know that they can make it happen for you. She made the whole process painless and reassuring… Thank You Teresa!!!

Award-winning Team

Teresa Smith and team are proud of their 2014 award from Keller Williams. As the #1 Team for the North Gwinnett area, they pride themselves on quality service and always finding their clients a whole new lifestyle, not just a home.




I have known and worked with Teresa Smith for many years. She has served as our Realtor for some of our Lake Lanier properties and I also work with her in my capacity as a Real Estate Appraiser.
Teresa has the unique ability to solve problems in a calm, professional and very successful way. She takes her business seriously and works toward the successful conclusion of every transaction she is involved with. Teresa is a good listener so if problems do arise she can solve them so that all parties are satisfied with the end result.
I highly recommend Teresa Smith whenever someone asks me for a good Realtor in this area. She also has a great deal of experience with Lake Lanier properties. I have enjoyed working with Teresa over these many years and I hope to continue that relationship in the years to come.”



Trust Teresa

We have used Teresa and her team to buy 3 houses and we are in the process of buying our 4th. She is easy to work with and realistic about pricing, condition, etc. Teresa has a team and contacts for just about anything you may need in the process of buying or selling. Trust Teresa to get you what you want in real estate.”



Excellent Knowledge

My wife and I had a very positive experience with Teresa. We wanted a house on Lake Lanier, and she demonstrated excellent knowledge about the area and the nuances of lakefront real estate.
After one day of looking at a variety of homes, Teresa understood exactly what we wanted. Soon afterward, she found the perfect home for us that had just been placed on the market. She provided expert guidance through every step of the process, including: negotiation, offer, closing, setting up utilities and recommending people for decks, docks, boats, fencing, general contracting, etc.
Teresa was always quick to answer the phone or respond to texts or emails, including after the sale was complete. She’s the complete package and I highly recommend her.”



Realtor for the Whole Family

I had looked at properties on the lake by myself for months. It wasn’t until I got Teresa’s help that I was able to find just the perfect lakefront home for me and my family. Her deep knowledge of lake properties was invaluable. She was always a professional and thorough. Later when my son wanted a condo in Auburn, I contacted Teresa to see if she could help. Through her network she connected me with a great real estate agent in Auburn who was able to help us find just the right condo. I would highly recommend Teresa Smith for any real estate needs.

For Buyers and Sellers

We recently sold our home and bought a new one and Teresa was our Realtor for both. She is extremely knowledgeable, personable, hard working and resourceful. Teresa spent a lot of time making calls which expedited the loan process, essentially doing other peoples’ jobs. She consistently went the extra mile. Teresa treated our transaction as if it were her own and that’s how all realtors should conduct their business.

Exceeded Expectations

Teresa, you exceeded our expectations of what a Realtor can do. Whatever the task that was required to expedite closing you took care of it. Whether it was water testing or county documents, you got it done. You always had a cheerful attitude and would say, “I’ve got it covered.” It seemed at times that you were available almost 24-hours a day. We thank you for the time you spent helping us located and purchase our property.
