Lanell Smith, a long-time resident of Annapolis, spent the majority of her career as a Naval officer and strives every day to earn the trust and dedication of her clients and exceed their expectations.
Lanell brings to real estate not only her impressive former experience in the Navy but also her relevant BFA in Interior Design from the Design Institute of San Diego. As a proud member of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers), she is skilled at not only recognizing a home's unique beauty, but also helping clients visualize its potential. Inspired by her experience as a real estate investor and her love for the historic beauty of Annapolis architecture, she is dedicated to guiding clients through the home buying process with a keen eye and an honest and knowledgeable approach.
Born in Tokyo, Japan and still an enthusiastic lover of travel who has spent time in over 12 countries around the world, Lanell brings her love of diversity, culture and military life to her Annapolis real estate career. Her focused determination and grit enable her to consistently service her clients to the highest standards.
Her love for everything the Annapolis area has to offer, from its beautiful 18th century architecture to its miles of gorgeous shorelines and impressive US Naval Academy campus makes Lanell the perfect insider for anyone looking to make "America's Sailing Capital" their home.
She is proud to say that her top priority will always be the clients she services whether they are fellow military families, families searching for their dream home or real estate investors seeking to invest in this lively, contemporary capital city on Chesapeake Bay.
As a self-proclaimed sports fan, you might catch Lanell enjoying one of the many Navy games in town or court-side proudly cheering on her daughter at a Lehigh University volleyball game. Another favorite pastime is strolling through DTA with a cup of coffee in hand enjoying the charm of City Dock and all that the waterfront has to offer with her four-legged best friends, Oliver and Harley.
Outside of her professional goals, Lanell is passionate about causes that support veterans. She and her husband (USNA '97 graduate & Navy veteran) are very proud to be members of the Midshipman Sponsorship program which supports naval academy students by providing them necessary friendship, understanding and encouragement.
