Smith & Associates Real Estate is excited to welcome Leigh Fortuna as Vice President of Real Estate. Most recently, serving as a Sales Manager at Compass Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fortuna brings almost twenty years of experience in real estate sales and management spanning back to her career start as a Realtor in the Coconut Grove area of Miami. Fortuna is an award-winning real estate agent with leadership experience in the luxury real estate industry and a track record of successfully managing real estate teams.
“As national companies continue rolling back operations for better profitability, Smith & Associates is looking ahead by building opportunities that will lead the company and sales team to be the best in the market. We are excited to welcome such a highly regarded leader to our team,” says Bob Glaser, President & CEO, Smith & Associates Real Estate.
Fortuna will be responsible for all aspects of branch management while also serving as a mentor and coach who enjoys developing individual growth and talent. She is known for building a positive culture and thrives in community outreach efforts.
“Returning to an independent brokerage that is as family oriented as Smith, feels like coming home. I began my career at a firm like this and am so looking forward to returning to a company that is so tight-knit and embedded in the community, says Fortuna. In Leigh’s spare time, she is an avid gardener and a member of the Safety Harbor Garden Club.
Smith & Associates Real Estate is a company that enjoys record-breaking sales but is also driven to measure success in more ways than just profit. Their commitment to the community shines through on the corporate level with the Smith & Associates Real Estate Foundation and with each team member’s commitment to meaningful organizations.
