About Us

Joe Britz – Houston Market Leader

A part of the Smart City squad since 2018, Joe Britz demonstrated the kind of hard work and dedication that took him from being a Dallas Sales Agent to Sales Manager in less than a year. Most recently, Joe packed up and moved down south to accept an even bigger promotion as the Houston Market Leader!

“As Market Leader, I aim to build a highly inclusive and people-oriented culture that delivers the very best client experience to everyone who reaches out for our help. We’re actively trying to better ourselves and our service, so I’m really proud to lead the Houston team during the next phase of Smart City’s growth story.”

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 Houston Where You Can Be Yourself

For us, apartment hunting is more than just a job. It’s a passion! Rather than simply provide you with a list of available rentals in the Houston area, we will take the time to learn all about your wants and needs. And then we’ll make it our personal mission to find you the perfect apartment, condo, or other rental property—one that’s not just “good enough,” but a home that’s absolutely perfect for you.

We’re Smart City – Houston, 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.
