I have a servant's heart and enjoy helping people and strive to live by the Golden Rule. I enjoy building relationships with my clients and in helping them, act in a consulting role, having an honest and direct approach. In order to better serve my clients, I believe in self development and actively pursue training and educational opportunities.

    My clients are the heartbeat of my business, therefore it is imperative that I provide unparalleled service, going the extra mile to ensure that not only do I earn a lifetime client, but that my clients are also secure in endorsing my services to other friends and family.

    Many years of experience in property management, corporate sales and marketing and small business ownership, have been essential stepping stones leading to my career as a Realtor.

    I was born and raised in Tyler, and for the last 10 years, my family and I have called the Lindale/Mineola area, our home. We claim both towns because we love what each of them have to offer! When I'm not helping my clients, you'll find me riding horses, working alongside my husband on our home and land, or just enjoying the East Texas outdoors!

    You are the heartbeat of my business!

    My Client Testimonials

    Dana Smith did a great job when it came to working on our time. Being a family that has to work during the day and only has times after 5:00 PM and on the weekend she was always available. She answered every question that I had and answered it truthfully and to the best of her knowledge. I would recommend Dana to anyone that is in need, and in the future, if we have to do this again would be very happy to have her on my side helping me. She helped with the purchase of our new home along with helping me sell my lot out at hideaway. Very happy with Dana and could go on and on on the service she had provide me and my family.

    Dana was kind, helpful, and prompt in all communication. I relied on her help and advice on many fronts regarding the sale of a Hide-a-way property I inherited. I felt like I could really trust her to take care of things at the house that needed to be done since I live out of state, and I was very grateful for her help and advice.

    Thanks for handling the sale of our estate Dana. We were thoroughly pleased with the experience. Jim Fleming Garland, TX
    From start to finish, Dana Smith did an outstanding job! She listed our home and had multiple offers in a day. She patiently showed us several houses until we made our selection and stayed by our side throughout our purchase. She was always available for questions and was reachable anytime of day. She has a very honest and straight forward approach and we will stick with her for all of our real estate needs from now on. She is a joy to work with! John & Lisa Parltow Hideaway, TX
    Dana was a pleasure to work with. We were very picky and took a long time to make a decision (1 year) she stuck with us and was pleasant and always willing to take us to properties even on very short notices. She was awesome and very helpful. Robin Gilbert
    Dana was always available to help and answer any questions we had. She did a great job. Lisa Hunt
    Dana Smith is outstanding. My family grew to think of her as a friend. Our standoffish 14-year-old daughter even lamented the fact that we might not be seeing as much of her as we finally selected and purchased our home, after Dana had helped us search many times at Hideaway. She is the consummate professional, and represents I-20 in an exemplary fashion. Dana was very patient showing us houses several times, and even suggested my disinclined wife view the home we ultimately purchased. She also gave us a very thoughtful and personalized housewarming gift that will be important to our family for years to come. Jennifer and Brandon Borden, Hideaway, Texas
    We enjoyed dealing with Dana very much and felt like she looked out for our needs and best interest throughout the process. We would seek her services for any future real estate needs. Tommy Phillips, Forney, TX
    We recently used the services of the I-20 Team Real Estate to purchase a property. Our realtor, Dana Smith, was excellent. While searching for a property she kept us aware of new listings as they came on the market. When it came time to do a contract she negotiated well on our behalf. She stayed in contact with the listing agent and the title company. Dana was always professional as well as being prompt and great to work with. If you need the services of a realtor, I unequivocally recommend Dana Smith. Ken Volkert, Seguin
