At the REB Awards 2021, Kate Smith, business owner of Harcourts Smith, in Semaphore, South Australia, was named the Sales Agent of the Year – Metropolitan. The awards annually recognise the outstanding contribution of professionals and businesses working within the industry, including agents, networks, innovators, leaders and property managers.

“Doing what you love and being acknowledged on a national platform is an absolute honor and just makes all the long days and challenges worth it,” said Ms Smith after winning the award.

“I have to give a big thanks to my team, Samantha, Teagan and Ricki, and also my husband for giving me the support to do what I need to.”

Noting that the past year has been challenging for everyone, she shared her key for thriving personally and succeeding in the marketplace during those times.

“I took on an adapt or die mentality,” said Ms Smith. “So, just trying to keep ahead of the curve and changed at all times and doing the things you don’t always feel like doing when you know you should!”

It is no coincidence that Ms Smith was the top listing agent in Australia, in 2020, which also gained her recognition on the REB Top 100 Agents ranking.

The team at Harcourts Smith has grown its number of listings and sales month on month.

“We are so incredibly lucky to be in a market that has risen and grown above all these challenges,” said Ms Smith. “We have such an amazing quality of life and I think that was showcased to the whole nation during COVID-19, and now the demand from interstate is part of that feeding into the market.”
