About Us

Emily Wright – Denver Market Leader

After graduating from University of Central Arkansas, Emily Wright started her career with Smart City. As an Apartment Locator in the Dallas office, she demonstrated her passion for the company through mentoring, hosting workshops, and finding incredible deals for the marketing team. Just weeks after she was promoted to Sales Manager in Dallas, she was brought to Denver to lead a brand-new team here. “As a Market Leader, my goal in the beginning was to create a phenomenal and inclusive culture that delivers an over-achieving client experience. We’ve done that and are continuing to invest and improve our month-over-month growth while spreading our brand awareness to everyone in Denver, CO!”

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 Denver Where You Can Be Yourself

Not to brag, but we’re kind of the experts when it comes to apartment hunting in Denver. Other apartment locating services might be satisfied with simply providing a list of available units, but for us, “good enough” simply isn’t good enough. That’s why we make it our personal mission to learn about your wants, your needs, your “gotta haves,” and your wildest dreams so we can put you in an apartment that’s absolutely perfect for you.

We’re Smart City – Denver, 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.
