About Us

Remington Pierce — General Manager

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Remington started at Smart City after graduating from Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!). Remington was an agent in the Austin market for nearly 2 years before moving to launch the new market in Nashville, Tennessee. As a mentor for this new team, she discovered a passion for helping her teammates succeed. Remington returned to Austin to grow from Sales Development Leader to Market Leader over Austin and San Antonio and now lives in Denver to oversee Atlanta, Denver, and Chicago as General Manager.

Sara Glenn — Sales Manager

A native of Austin, TX, Sara’s always had a passion for people. She kissed her day job goodbye in the fall of 2016 to join Smart City. After training under Smart City Founder & CEO, Cassie Brown, Sara dominated as a powerhouse agent in Austin for four and a half years. She was welcomed as a Sales Development Leader within her market in 2021, training and empowering agents. As of June 2022, Sara has taken yet another leap at Smart City and accepted her new role as Atlanta Sales Manager! When she’s out of the office, you can catch her traveling the world, indulging in anything with sugar, or hitting the trails with the pups and her partner.

Kade Manuel — Sales Manager

Kade’s journey spans continents — he was born in Germany, migrated to Michigan, traveled down to Arkansas, and landed briefly in Texas where he worked as an agent at Smart City Fort Worth. After eight months as an agent, Kade was presented with the opportunity to move to Atlanta, GA to become a Sales Manager. With a passion for helping others find success, he was excited to take the opportunity to help lead and grow the Atlanta market.

Aaron Smith — Property Success Manager

A proud interracial extrovert, Aaron appreciates an aesthetic Instagram photo, cleanliness, and a good time. When he’s not working as a Property Success Manager fostering relationships with property management teams in Atlanta, you can find him walking the BeltLine with his Golden Retriever sidekick Murphy and listening to his favorite podcasts. His favorite foods include mozzarella sticks and caesar salad (with extra croutons).

Our Story

Smart City started in 2013 as a small apartment locating service in Dallas, Texas. In the early days, our founder and CEO Cassie Brown just wanted to help her friends find great places to live, but her innate drive to offer an amazing client experience quickly set Smart City apart from the competition. Since then, Smart City has taken big strides to disrupt the real estate industry by choosing what’s right over what’s profitable. We are growing rapidly, with services available in major metro areas across three states. And, as always, our goal is to always put you—our customer—first.

Our Purpose

When Smart City was first founded, our goal was “to become the most trusted, most referred, and most utilized resource among renters in Texas.” We’ve broadened our scope considerably as our business has grown, but those basic ideals still remain. In short, Smart City is here to find you a space where you can be yourself.

Finding You a Space in Atlanta Where You Can Be Yourself

For us, apartment hunting in Atlanta isn’t just a job. It’s a passion. Some might say we’re obsessed with it. That’s why we strive to do more than simply provide you with a list of available rentals. We want to build a connection and get to know you so we can be sure you land in an apartment that’s perfect in the neighborhood that’s perfect for you.

We’re Smart City – Atlanta, and we’re here to find you a space where you can be yourself.

There’s a ton of locators in the Dallas area, but if we ever move again Smart City is the only one I’d consider. They make the process so easy, especially because you can communicate via text with your agent. Best of all the process is so quick.

From finding the apartments that fit what I was looking for to scheduling the tours, [my agent] made everything stress-free for me. I highly recommend Smart City!

I worked with Smart City again and they did not fail. Amazing service, loving and caring agents…I have a really, really busy lifestyle and Smart City really helped me not to be worried and stressed about finding a nice home with my needs. I love Smart City and I promise that no one will regret using them.
