About Us

Brittney Gillespie – Dallas Market Leader

After working as a high school English teacher for 7 years, Brittney made the career jump to real estate in 2015 and was brought on as Smart City’s 11th agent ever — for wow factor context, we now have a headcount of over 100 on our Dallas team alone! Since then, Brittney has worn many hats at Smart City, from crushing it as an agent for over 2 years, dabbling in recruiting, and mentoring in sales management. In August of 2021, Brittney was promoted to her current role as Dallas Market Leader.

“Smart City attracts the literal best people on the planet. I have met some of my best friends through this company and been able to learn from and grow with some of the coolest leaders of all time.”

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 Dallas Where You Can Be Yourself

For many, apartment hunting in Dallas can be a chore. But for us, it’s a passion. Some might say we’re obsessed with it. While other apartment locating services might be content to simply provide you with a list of available rentals, we prefer to go above and beyond. We want to build a connection with you and find out your wants, your needs, your “gotta haves,” and your wildest dreams so we can find the Dallas apartment, condo, or rental home that you’re going to love.

We’re Smart City – Dallas, 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.
