Licensed Real Estate Salesperson


Courtney Smelter is an established, highly sought-after real estate representative who has successfully negotiated millions of dollars in sales and rental deals for clients across Manhattan and Brooklyn. She is known for her professionalism, compassion, and strong negotiating skills. Her exceptional level of service is consistent whether she's working with a first-time home buyer, a renter, an investor, a developer, or a townhouse seller. The core of Courtney's business has been achieved through her high volume of referrals and repeat business—a testament to her dedication and talent for exceeding customer expectations. She is also a member of The Abby Palanca Team, which has done over $230M in sales and has been ranked in the WSJ Top Small Teams category since 2019. Courtney has a decade of industry experience and has represented clients with budgets across all price points. She had one of the highest weekly sales in Manhattan in 2021, closing a deal worth close to $20M. Courtney has gone through the process of buying and selling an apartment firsthand, and she uses that knowledge to give her clients unique insights and perspectives they might not otherwise receive. She loves working with people from different backgrounds and showing them her favorite parts of every neighborhood. In New York City, it's not just the home you live in, but the coffee shop you go to, the local dry cleaners, your favorite restaurant, and so much more. Courtney was raised in Atlanta and attended the University of Tennessee. After living abroad in London and owning an apartment in Manhattan, she now resides in Brooklyn Heights. Before becoming an agent, she worked in ad sales with the HGTV and DIY TV networks. She was trusted with managing high-end clients and negotiating budgets. The skills she developed there carry over to her real estate career today. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, hiking in the Hudson Valley, traveling, and supporting local restaurants with friends. Courtney believes New York living extends well beyond the walls of her home, and her clients benefit from her broad interests and experience.
