Chris Smith joined Inman News in June 2011 as chief evangelist. When you meet Chris there is one word that often comes to mind: passion. His love of technology and social media and his desire to help real estate agents of all levels succeed with today’s tech savvy consumers led him to create the Tech Savvy Agent website.
Chris’ background includes working for the largest Internet lead generation mortgage company in the country and then spending time working with an international Search Engine Optimization firm whose clients included Facebook and Pepsi.
Previously, Chris worked as an Internet marketing and social media consultant for Move, Inc., a publicly traded company that owns and operates Realtor.com, and Top Producer Systems. The combination of his technology/social media knowledge and the industry insight provided by Move has made Chris a sought after speaker and coach who is known as an innovator within the real estate industry. Chris is married to Anna Smith and they have two young children, Lucas and Maya.
