Building Dreams: Smeak Real Estate helps homebuyers find the perfect fit

Selling real estate isn’t just a profession for Dave and Kathleen Smeak, it’s a family passion. More than 30 years ago, the Smeaks started their realty business out of a small storefront in downtown Williamston, just the two of them. Since then, Smeak Real Estate has grown to a team of seven, including their daughter, Jessica.

“Back in 1992, when we started selling real estate in the Greater Lansing area, listings were primarily shared through printed catalogs and word of mouth, and virtual tours were nonexistent,” said Dave Smeak. “Today, digital platforms and social media have revolutionized the way we market properties with just a few clicks.”

However, the essence of connecting buyers with their dream homes remains the same for the Smeaks.

“Growing up, I saw how my parents ran their business and how much they enjoyed helping people,” said Jessica Smeak. “One thing my dad taught me was that if you’re more concerned about the person rather than making the sale, you’ll always be successful. That is something that I’ve always held on to.”

That philosophy is also the basis of their motto: “Smeak Real Estate is a good foundation for every home sold.”
