Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Katie Smithson joins Bridge Interactive (Zillow)

All good things must come to an end.

Katie joined W+R Studios back in January of 2013 and quickly became indispensable to me.  She was a fast learner and began to take over different parts of the business.  She got my sense of humor, told me when I was wrong (many times), and did many parts of the job better than I did.  And to see her become a mother earlier this year filled me with more joy than I thought possible.

I’m extremely proud of what she has accomplished at W+R and the industry, where she has been part of the RESO Board of Directors and the CMLS Board of Directors along with getting CMLX1 certified.  While it’s hard for me to imagine not working with her every week, I am excited to see her continue to grow on this next adventure…..ish.

Thank you Katie. #shakeandbake

  1. Congrats to you Katie. You are a wonderful person and great asset to our industry.

    Sorry for you Greg as you are losing a rock star….but as you said, excited to see Katie roll into her new role at Bridge (Zillow).

    Go get-um Katie…..

  2. Congrats Katie!!! I’m going to miss our dinners with our usual bottle of “Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon”. But Congratulations and all the best. Hope to see you again soon.

  3. Thank you Scott and John! Looking forward to seeing you both in the new year…and John, I’m sure we can arrange for dinner and Silver Oak soon 🙂

    @Greg – I don’t even know where to begin. You have been my biggest cheerleader and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of you and Dan Woolley. You have taught me so much and I will forever be grateful for my years working with you. I’m going to miss working with you, too, but I’m only a phone/Zoom/FaceTime call away.

    Thank you for everything #shakeandbake

  4. Props to you Greg for giving Katie a path to growth as professional in this space! She is a ROCKSTAR and I expect her stock to remain high since she has the advantage of youth and talent. Congrats Katie – excited to see what kind of magic you create next!
