Brad oversees the overall strategy and direction of the company. With more than 30 years of experience in the global real estate industry, he has leveraged a keen ability to identify market opportunities with a broad understanding of market fundamentals to craft creative solutions to unique challenges. His expertise in marking trends in the real estate and capital markets has made Brad a sought-after resource for investors and operators and has led to his personal involvement in transactions totaling several billion dollars. Brad has consistently leveraged creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation to collaborate across all disciplines of the commercial property business for the value enhancement of real estate.

In 1998, Brad founded Resource Real Estate Partners, building it into the unmatched leader in providing innovative and profitable solutions for the value enhancement of real estate throughout the Southeast. In 2004, Mr. Smith acquired Technology Park/Atlanta from Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company. With a rich history of developing large scale master-planned business parks, TPA was a perfect complement to the principal investment and service business of Resource. In 2012, Brad sold the service business of both companies to CBRE, the largest commercial real estate services company in the world. Prior to 1999, Brad was a principal in the firm Brannen Goddard.
