Shona Smith of Only Realty Excellence

Category News

Today we say Hello! and salute Shona Smith, of Only Realty Excellence, a lovely lady with a huge, kind heart. Shona had a career as an administrator in one of SA's leading financial institutions before becoming a stay-at-home mum. Then 3 years ago she had an epiphany, "I'm going to start my own business" she said. And set out to find one.

After researching various options, she chose Real Estate as she had bought and sold her own properties as she'd moved through the country with the Bank. Having decided on the industry she set out to find an ideal partner. Shona will tell you that she evaluated several of the well-known Real Estate Franchises but chose Only Realty as she believed they offered an "X factor". A sense of family! Shona has a huge heart and is an avid believer in giving back to the community. Over the last 12 months she has;

  • Paid a year's school fees for a disadvantaged pupil,
  • Handed out 24 food hampers to those less fortunate,
  • Donated food, equipment, bedding and toys to the SPCA,
  • Donated toys and food to Boy's Town for the children's Christmas
  • Shona's business has grown from strength to strength over the last 3 years, having won the following accolades;
  • Outstanding Performance: Growth - 2018
  • Service Excellence - 2018
  • 2nd most mortgages referred via Ooba - 2019
  • Person who most represents the brand: Brand Ambassador - 2019
