Meet Wayne Smith
Passion. This is the best word I can describe how I feel about the Real Estate Business.
I first decided to become a Realtor at the age of 13 when my first mentor lived across the street. His name was Steve Waters and he was an ex-pro baseball player that sold Real Estate. He was always going places, invited to many social events, helping people, and making a decent living for both him and his family. It wasn’t until March 1st, 1986, that I decided to become a Realtor. I walked into a Realty World, talked to the Broker and was instantly impressed with how friendly Chuck Johnson was, so I started work immediately.
Wow!!! Did I get lucky because an old-timer named Mike Ferry was giving a free presentation on a six-week workshop to which I went immediately. I went and was very happy I did, simply because he brought memories of when I was a child.
As a child, I door knocked nearly all year for several reasons. During Baseball, Basketball, and Football we had to sell candy to pay for our uniforms, so I door knocked. When I had two paper routes, I door knocked in order to keep my routes. During the strawberry season I would pick strawberries in the fields near my home and go door to door selling them. On weekends I would go door to door to both wash cars, and mow lawns.
Going door to door I have found is the number one activity you can do to obtain good quality business. You can mail out high-quality, good-looking marketing brochures and you’ll find that they still will not hire you to sell their home. Just one knock on the door, you meet face to face and within a couple of minutes, the person about to hire you is looking at you, face to face. Just get out there and make it happen.
After working for Realty World for almost a year, I went to Re/Max for 22 consecutive years. First in Yorba Linda, and then with a great friend of mine Ron Holborn in Fullerton. After 5 highly productive years with Ron at Re/Max in Fullerton, I finally followed my love for the Ocean and moved to Newport Beach where I’ve been since 1993.
My Constitution for life is simple:
It is absolutely phenomenal living here. We have incredible weather, all the Ocean sports you can imagine with surfing, sailing, scuba diving, swimming, etc. We also are blessed with a vast array of entertainment ranging from Surf contest, Elaborate Boat Shows, Jazz Concerts, Fashion Island hosting Concerts in the Courtyard in the Summertime, and one of the world largest Christmas Trees at Christmas, the Coronado Del Mar Christmas Walk, the Susan Komen Walk, the Taste of Newport Beach, and talk about the fine Restaurants on the water with Sunset Views, etc.
Currently, I am single, I have a beautiful daughter Taylor, and just absolutely love life. I love going places and exploring new things constantly like sporting events, music of all kinds, and particularly love going to events where I can learn new from. I also have a passion for travel, having traveled quite extensively. I probably love going to new lands, cultures and have a strong appreciation for the county I live in.
