As a Real Estate Advisor, I believe that the real estate experience, whether buying, selling, or building, should be a pleasant and enjoyable one.
A native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Tessia Smith-Wine has always had a passion, purpose and plan aimed towards entrepreneurship. This is something she lived and learned first-hand at the early age of four years old.
Tessia watched her grandmother pave the way, being the first of her kind to own and operate two restaurants in Winston-Salem at the same time. Tessia jumped right in by flipping a milk crate over, hopping on, and standing beside her grandmother. She began building customer service skills, taking orders, learning the value of being an attentive listener and ensuring the customers' needs were met in a timely manner. It is those experiences that lit a fire within her and she vowed that one day she would do the same, and be her own boss. Thus, Tessia, the entrepreneur was born!
While studying her major in Criminology with a minor in Psychology Forsyth Technical Community College, Tessia perfected her knowledge base and developed her interpersonal skills all the while knowing that God had a bigger plan and had to follow her heart.
Tessia’s portfolio speaks volumes as she has managed retirement funds and pension plans for employees of a multimillion-dollar corporation. She continued on to a robust professional life and curated an extensive background in several industries including insurance and healthcare as well over many decades, requiring her to be a critical thinker and problem solver. It was imperative to be several steps ahead, much like in real estate. It’s in those areas where she thrives by meeting the needs of her clients with a spirit of excellence which fills her cup; this is a win-win for her clients!
She does not stop at meeting the needs of her clients. Tessia also partners with non-profit organizations to volunteer and will always continue to give back to her community as this gives her great pleasure and feeds her soul.
Tessia’s rich history has made her a natural fit to real estate where she carries her drive, discipline and passion for others, helping each client and customer find their place in the world to call home.
Tessia is also a wife and mother and ardent lover of domestic and international travel, cooking, entertaining, self care & self development, and building others (and homes). Lastly, having been blessed with the luxury of gathering such diverse, wonderful and rich experiences, wisdom and knowledge from so many mentors in different walks of life; Tessia is READY and can not wait to work with you so you have a place to call home!
