About Us


As natives of North Carolina, Catherine and I have always felt at home here in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  We recently returned to Boone to establish our own property management company and we are excited to bring our expertise to the High Country.  Prior to starting C.S. Smith Management, Catherine and I spent five years managing large estates on St. John in the US Virgin Islands.
