Real estate + Entrepreneurship are in my blood, and so is Alberta ! I was born and raised in the Peace Country, and took my B.Admin Degree from GPRC. I was then very fortunate to live, work and go to school in Lethbridge for several years, attending the University of Lethbridge, and receiving a B. MGMT. Prior to my 10+ years in Real Estate, I’ve also lived in Calgary for nearly a decade, working in finance and accounting, and enjoying all that the city has to offer. Whether it’s Southern or Northern Alberta, I am at home. There is just something about the passion, hard work, grit and fun-loving nature of Albertans that I love. I am third generation REALTOR, and married to a REALTOR, I live it and breathe it!
In my career in Real Estate I have realized many dreams, and had a lot of fun along the way. Some highlights of my career have been representing the industry leading Harker Homes, founding GP3D Marketing, being nominated from the GP Chamber of Commerce for both ‘Small Business of the Year’ (2016), and Grassroots Realty Group ‘New Business of the Year’ (2018), Being recognized nationally as the TOP 50 REALTORS IN CANADA UNDER AGE 35, 2017-2020, speaking at business conferences in both Grande Prairie and Red Deer, Making the REP Top 100 Realtors in Canada (2017, 2020, 2021) and most importantly founding Grassroots Realty in 2017. in 2020 Grassroots Realty was named by Macleans Magazine as one of the top 50 fastest growing start-ups in Canada.
Grassroots Realty is our opportunity to change the real estate marketing game. With unlimited creativity, passion and local business contacts we deliver better results for out clients. Our office is like nothing Alberta has ever seen, more closely mimicking a Silicon Valley type work space. Technology and outside the box thinking are going to allow us to keep our saws sharp and our clients happy. As a broker I want to get to know every agent personally and give them the tools they need to succeed. As a REALTOR, I go above and beyond for my clients, and use Alberta’s most advanced marketing system with every listing to ensure a quick and stress-free sale.
I am passionate about real estate, interior design, marketing, architecture, the mountains, travel, cooking and fitness. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my Beautiful Wife, Sukhu Smith (Also a REALTOR!), our Beautiful Boy Maksym, and our 2 dogs, as well as giving back to my community as much as possible .
I love helping people realize their dreams, whether other REALTORS , first-time home buyers or sellers. Find out why I am recognized as one of the top REALTORS for my age in Canada www.yurismith.com.
