Having spent a decade in film development, Betsy Smith became known for her ability to find the right talent for the right project. She now applies these matchmaking skills to real estate, guiding her clients through Los Angeles’s fast-paced market place to find their perfect property. Whether helping first time Buyers and Sellers, or seasoned investors, she is a consummate advisor and advocate.
Tapped by Melissa Alt, a founding partner of Teles Properties and top producer throughout her career, Betsy turned her artistic eye toward real estate. Together they make a formidable team characterized by commitment, enthusiasm, and professional skill. Teles’s recent merger with Douglas Elliman, the # 1 Company on the eastern seaboard, and their affiliation with the international firm Knight Frank, has created a bi-coastal and international powerhouse.
Arriving in Los Angeles after college, Betsy’s interest in architecture continued to grow through exploring the diverse neighborhoods characterizing LA. Throughout her career in film, Betsy worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from big budget studio franchises to low budget indie films. During this time, she honed her negotiation skills, as well as developing a deep understanding for the importance of collaboration and listening to her clients.
