Octavius “O” Smiley-Humphries

Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, “O” as he is affectionately called, relocated to North Carolina in 2015. For the first two years in NC, Octavius was a stay-at-home dad. This time taught him two things:

1. Patience…. A whole lot of patience!!!

2. That life is best lived when it is driven by passion.

The ladder idea is the force that prompted Octavius to get back into real estate. You see, O became a licensed real estate agent in Atlanta during the most exciting time in real estate… 2006! If you are too young to remember that time period, that was just about the time the real estate “bubble” was ready to burst. By 2009, Octavius was out of a job in the one profession that he truly loved.

It was not easy returning to real estate, but Octavius found it important to prove to his son that while you may fall and get bumped and bruised, you can always get back up. Now, Octavius is a top producing Realtor® in the Triangle area of Raleigh, NC. Working with clients is not enough for this avid UGA Bulldogs fan, lover of food, and self-proclaimed shopaholic. Octavius serves as the Vice President of the greater Triangle chapter of NAGLREP (National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals), as a board member of The United Way of Chatham County, and as a parent rep for his son’s school’s PTSA.

“My goal is to partner with each and every person I have the opportunity to represent. Each client is unique, and each transaction is unique. That is why I provide an authentic and tailored experience for my clients!”
