Our network of trustworthy local professionals can assist you with a wide range of property-related services that extend beyond the scope of a traditional estate agency.  

Managing Director

Tom Smith

At 35, Tom has been immersed in the local property market throughout the Midlands for over 10 years. Formerly he was a Senior Partner at one of the faster growing and reputed independent estate agencies in Leicestershire. Raised locally and into an entrepreneurial family, Tom was schooled at Ratcliffe College, and his grandfathers were the Managing Director at Raleigh Cycles in Nottingham and Foreman at Rolls Royce in Mountsorrel. His father formerly owned and operated Simpkin & James Wines in Leicester, but it was his mother, an international hair stylist from Barrow upon Soar (Jane Gilks) to whom he attributes his drive and determination to succeed. “My mother instilled the values of hard work, manners and what it takes to succeed from an early age. My parents' efforts to involve our family in competitive sports helped too. I am immensely proud of my career and achievements to date, which include completing transactions on some of the region's highest value properties. Whilst my achievements are dear to me, ultimate satisfaction comes from helping local people to achieve their property goals. I cannot wait to continue helping clients new and old navigate the property market for years to come.” Tom has a passion for all things property, cricket, and rugby, and is still chasing his dream of racing cars on a professional stage; for now, he will have to make do with club racing!


Lucinda Smith

For Lucinda, marketing is everything. She was at her previous company for nine and a half years, where she gained a traditional set of training, excellent experience, and a good grounding in estate agency. In her role there as Marketing Director, she was integral to the company’s overall presentation, synonymous with its growth. Lucinda has lived throughout Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire her entire life. She was schooled at Our Lady’s Convent School in Loughborough and has a Business and Marketing Management degree from Oxford Brookes University. “I am extremely excited about the launch of Smiths. I have huge respect for Tom, his knowledge, and his understanding of the market. I believe we align in our work ethic, are driven to be the very best at what we do and take great joy and satisfaction in helping clients achieve their property goals. We aim to build upon the core values of estate agency with creativity and innovation, helping clients with all their property queries or concerns, and encompassing many related services under one roof.”
