F. Ron Smith

Founding Partner

F. Ron Smith is co-founder of the LA boutique real estate powerhouse Partners Trust. Through his leadership style and visionary marketing tactics, the company, sold in 2018 to Pacific Union and acquired by Compass, grossed more than $10B in sales in a handful of years. Consistently a top producer since beginning his career in real estate thirty-three years ago, F. Ron has been involved in more than $6.5 Billion in residential real estate transactions to date. He credits his long-term success as a local real estate expert with fostering and maintaining strong community connections, and the satisfaction that comes from introducing clients to a home that fits their needs, as well as a neighborhood and community lifestyle that matches their interests. F. Ron is a trusted advisor in the all-things-real estate, from construction to home staging, color palettes, and landscaping, F. Ron has an innate sense of how to get a property ready for sale, maximizing a home’s ability to achieve the highest sales price possible.

A decade ago, F. Ron joined forces with David Berg to form Smith and Berg Partners. With a shared command over the LA market and a serious sense of humor, David and F. Ron, with their group of extraordinary SBP team players, represent business leaders, celebrities, and residential developers, as well as individual buyers and sellers. Smith and Berg have brokered some of the most notable real estate deals on the Westside. Their properties are consistently featured in the Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and The Hollywood Reporter, among many others, and they are a sought-out resource for all media outlets.

F. Ron’s expertise in new construction aligns with his passion and affinity for architecture and design. A long-time Westside resident, F. Ron lives in Brentwood with Tracy, his wife of 34 years, and is enormously proud of their two sons, Evan and Brandon. F. Ron is a world travel enthusiast who enjoys fitness, golf, barbecuing in the backyard, good wine, great coffee, live music, and USC football at the LA Memorial Coliseum. David and F. Ron are active and generous supporters of numerous charitable organizations, including Children’s Burn Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Jewish Federation, Phase One, and Concern Foundation for cancer research, as well as the scholarship programs at USC. When it’s not a client interaction or the closing of a deal, you can bet that F. Ron is either discovering a vintage sipping tequila to share with the team or enjoying a top-notch espresso drink. His dedicated “research” has concluded that an almond milk capp from local coffee shop Caffe Luxxe is one of the best brews around.

 

Client Testimonial
"10 STARS!!! We had an enormous pleasure and honor to be represented by the Smith and Berg Team, both as sellers and as buyers for different properties. We cannot imagine a better agency – everything from start to finish was executed professionally, in total coordination, always on time, and with top quality. The team expertly navigated the complex process of both selling and buying, and we continually felt that they had their client's interests as their top priority. With the ultra competitive housing market on the Westside, the whole process could have been quite stressful – instead, with the expert guidance of the Smith and Berg Team, we completed our housing journey in record time and with a fantastic outcome. I endorse the agency most enthusiastically."
