Introducing the Smith Legacy Team

We are very saddened to announce the passing of our beloved husband & father, Mark David Smith on April 18th 2017, following a brief battle with cancer.

Having served the Real Estate needs of the Conejo Valley since the age of 19, Mark wanted to ensure that his clientele, which included many friends and acquaintances, would be well taken care of in the same manner that he himself provided.

The best option that presented itself was the formation of the Smith Legacy Team, combining the experience and talents of Mark’s wife, Ruthie and their daughter Lauren.

As many long time clients and friends are well aware, Mark & Ruthie met in 1979, and a few weeks later, Mark (a new Realtor at the time) found out that Ruthie worked in escrow. It soon became clear that they were truly a match! What started with sparks flourished into a 37-year
partnership based on faith, love, values and respect.

With Real Estate being in Lauren’s blood, she obtained her license in 2010, and has been a major force in bringing 21st century technology to the foreground. Together, Ruthie & Lauren have the unique capacity of providing both experience combined with the latest in social media
marketing. In today’s market it is paramount to present a strong online presence to the public. In addition to complimentary home staging action plans, we use the very latest technology and highest quality imaging available, including 3D virtual tours and aerial photography.

We share Mark’s core belief of providing value oriented service to our clients. Most of our business comes from referral and we aim to uphold Mark’s vision and standards as we carry forward his legacy.

Warm Regards,

Ruthie Smith & Lauren Scott
