For Courtney Smith, real estate is about connection first. Sincerity and empathy are two personal characteristics he is expressly motivated by, and he works hard to maintain that positive reputation. When Courtney first meets a new client, he takes the time to consider their individual perspective. What is driving their decision to enter the real estate market, what are their goals, and what needs to happen to best meet those goals? Courtney trusts that the right and desirable result is within reach, especially when supported by the best-in-industry Compass network and team. His faith in the process, the people, and the outcome is genuine, and will give you the confidence that you’ve picked the right partner.
Each day is an opportunity in a real estate market like Northeast Florida. Whether your priority is waterfront, urban, or wide open spaces, there’s something for you. It is a market that stays consistently strong, pulling new full-time and seasonal residents from all corners of the country. For Courtney, every part of the process is exciting. Clients take precedence, but also important are relationships with other agents and industry representatives.
Originally from Springfield, Illinois, Courtney currently lives in St. Johns with his wife and his two children. He keeps up an active, work-hard-play-hard lifestyle, coaching his kids’ soccer teams, and taking advantage of trips to the beach, time spent outdoors, and weekend getaways. Always acting with integrity, Courtney is proud to be a positive figure for his children, and a reliable trusted partner for his real estate clients.
We had a fantastic experience with the Welch Team and our Agent Courtney Smith. For it is was very important to have a very experienced team at our site, as we just moved to the US from abroad and this was our first real estate purchase here. Courtney was super responsive and helped us with all our questions (some of them were not even close to being real estate related) and helped us within a few weeks to find the right home dormouse family... After we made an offer and the back office started to join, the experience kept this high level. Everybody we interacted with was super professional, reliable and delivered on point! They really helped us as inexperienced buyers to get trough this, partly complicated, process safe and sound. Thanks, guys! It was a pleasure and we will surely get back to you guys for future projects!
Recently purchased my home with Courtney Smith as my real estate agent and had an absolutely tremendous experience with all of the Welch Team staff. Kylene was very very helpful as well and stayed on top of all the small details that I would have missed. Highly recommend this crew!
The team went over and beyond with assisting me in my first home purchase. Courtney is absolutely phenomenal, and Meghan was by my side to ensure I was prepared at all times. After the experience I had with this dynamic duo, they successfully made this house buying experience, the best experience of my life! Thanks guys!
We definitely picked the right team. Courtney & Meghan are amazing! Our buyer process was very short, partly because we were completely prepared for a purchase and also because Courtney was able to get us in to see the property first and write up and deliver our contract immediately. His responsiveness was spectacular and made all the difference in this difficult sellers market. Meghan handled all the communication process like a pro! We highly recommend the Welch Team.
Courtney was my realtor and he did a great job assisting my wife and I with finding a commercial property for our new business. He was very patient and very responsive to our needs. He made this process much smoother and I highly recommend him. Thanks for all of your help!
Courtney was excellent in getting our property sold. After dealing with multiple other realtors in attempts to sell an old property, Courtney was a breath of fresh air. He was able to generate a nonstop pool of leads and offers. In the end we sold the property at an acceptable price. Kathy and the rest of the Welch team provided great support of the transaction ensuring that everyone knew what needed to get done and when to proceed with the sale. She kept us informed all the way to the end. Would definitely use the Welch team again for my property sales needs.
Courtney Smith and Meghan Roderick did an amazing job for us. We were very pleased with their professionalism. Because of them buying our dream home worked out perfectly:)
I had a great agent in Courtney Smith with Keller Williams. It took a while to find a place in this crazy market but, Courtney hung in there with us and never gave up. He was wonderful to work with and helped a lot in getting a house that we love. His attention to detail helped us find our forever home.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Courtney Smith and Kate Lukomskaya when buying a house. Welch Team was extremely responsive and fast. All throughout the negotiations and closing Courtney and Kate were there quickly handling any issues. Welch Team also connected me with a good mortgage broker and insurance company. Kate went above and beyond by also providing a lot of helpful information about the neighborhood.
"The team is excellent but I would love to bring the attention especially to Ashley Dowdall. Through 3 transactions within 4 months Ashley demonstrated to my husband and myself she's confident in her knowledge and experience while working through the storms we encountered. Ashley is a asset to your team and we recognize and appreciated early with the first transaction (sale of Hiddenview). Lori Mieczkowski our listing agent is the best and held our hands thru 2 sales. Courtney smith is awesome and we thank him for his patience with us while we search for the best home for us. Again thank you so much Welch Team."
