Paul Smith

Broker: Twelve Rivers Realty (512)228-8074
Paul has been helping people buy and sell homes in the Austin area since 2006. He started his career in real estate with Goodwin Partners, closing over $6 million in transactions in his first year. In 2011, he established Twelve Rivers Realty with his friend, Kevin Bown. In the 14 years Paul has been in the business, he's closed over $290 million transactions while positioning himself as an effective and fair Realtor. A Trusted Leader in Austin Real Estate and new-home sales, Paul has a broad client base that spans from first-time home buyers to residential developers. On top of his successful career, Paul still finds time to do charity work regularly. When COVID-19 reached the U.S., he created a charity live-stream series that raised over $75,000 for local charities in 12 weeks and helped donate 15,000 masks and PPE to front-line workers. Additionally, he works with LifeWorks, Central Texas Food Bank, St. Jude's Foundation and many more. Paul was born and raised in New England. At 19, he made a four-year pit stop at Fort Hood before finally rooting in Austin. The Army instilled in him many of the core values that he lives (and works) by today, like: honesty, integrity and an unparalleled work ethic. Paul says, “Austin is an amazing city that offers something for everyone, and Austin Real Estate is just as diverse. Austin has introduced me to my beautiful wife, Denise, provided me with an amazing place to live, and given me the opportunity to turn my passion into a career. I hope to help you fall in love with Austin as much as I have.” So, whether you’re looking to buy or sell a home in the Austin area, Paul is happy to show you the best that living in Austin has to offer.
