"His dedication to service has been showcased through his previous role as a Texas State Representative and his firm's commitment to charitable causes, including raising more than $2 million for the American Cancer Society. Richard certainly deserves accolades for his success over four decades in real estate, but more importantly for being the person and leader that he is."
"I attribute the success I have had to faith, family and friends," said Smith. "My wife and three daughters played a significant role with their unwavering support in good times and bad. None of this would have been possible if it weren't for my friends, loyal employees and agents. Coldwell Banker is America's premier real estate brand and the value of being affiliated with them for almost 30 years is immeasurable."
