What does it mean to Redefine Our Community Through Giving and Growth?

Before Society Real Estate first opened, many on our team were already very involved with charities in the Triangle.  However, we knew that we wanted to grow that spirit of giving back with our Real Estate company.  It was important to find a way to combine our expertise in Real Estate and our passion for helping others in our area.  The result?  We decided to partner with four handpicked, housing related charities across the Triangle.  Each charity chosen embodies the very specific mission to be part of the solution to combat homelessness in the Triangle.

Society Real Estate’s charity strategy is threefold:

  • A percentage of every commission we earn is earmarked to go into our charity fund. Every quarter that fund is evenly disbursed to each of our charity partners.
  • Our team will participate in volunteer days, assist with special events, fundraisers, and joint marketing through social media, printed advertising, etc.
  • To draw additional attention to these wonderful organizations by hosting an Awareness Social on a quarterly basis.

We are very excited to announce that we’ve partnered with A Lotta Love, CASA, The Green Chair Project, and The Raleigh/Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness.  After meeting with each of these organizations, it’s clear that they all have a deep love for what they do every day and we’re thrilled to help further their causes.

In a fast-paced real estate market, it’s important to stand out amongst your competitors.  As a team, we feel we’re brought together by this opportunity to give back.  Our agents work together towards the common goal of not only helping their clients get the most out of their buying or selling experience, but also maximizing the contribution they can give back into their community.

Society Real Estate, LLC – How it all began…

Both my wife Michelle Congleton Smith and myself have been in the Real Estate industry for the better part of our working lives. When we finally decided to figure out how to work with each other and combine our efforts we had to decide what that would look like? We contemplated every option out there including joining another firm together, setting up a team under another firm, becoming a husband and wife team, etc. Nothing seemed to fit exactly what we wanted. Both of us have a strong passion for charity and giving back to our community where we can. Considering our passion for giving back with our love of Real Estate ultimately led us to the decision to set up our independent firm with a strong focus on giving back to our community; primarily through housing related charities. We needed a name for our new firm that would portray our sense of giving back and our desire to grow and benefit our community, and Michelle came up with Society. When we looked up the definition of Society right away we knew we made the right decision.


  • companionship or association with one’s fellows
  • a voluntary association of individuals for common ends; especially: an organized group working together or periodically meeting because of common interests, beliefs, or profession

From there Society Real Estate started to take on a life of its own. And, soon our little team of two very quickly and organically grew into a team of six. We now have an amazing firm that is made complete by the outstanding brokers/friends that have decided to join us in our adventure. We look forward to years and years of success and the ability to help others with all their Real Estate needs. Welcome to Society Real Estate, where we choose to redefine our community through giving and growth.
