Beacon Street Realty, the sales and marketing division of Beacon Street Development Company, welcomes Smith Andrews as its new director of Business Development.

As a locally owned real estate company, Beacon Street has developed neighborhood residencies within the Triangle and beyond for more than a decade, and now strategically expands its team as it begins its latest ground-up project, The Wade.

Andrews brings extensive expertise from his tenure with Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company, where he advised individuals on wealth, financial, retirement and estate planning along with investment strategies.

“Smith understands what it means to really serve people,” says Beacon Street President Jim Wiley. “We are confident Smith embodies the heart of our company. His skills along with shared values, a prodigious work ethic and passion to help realize customers’ dreams and find solutions that best suites their needs, make him the perfect addition to our team. We are confident he will help our clients find the best options within our residencies for their life stages, lifestyles and future.”

A Raleigh native, Andrews has a deep understanding of the community, its history, and desirability, which will be key to building its future.

“It is a privilege to come alongside Beacon Street in its incredible work of place making,” Andrews said. “Beacon Street really has a great core, and it’s all about connecting people with what they value most in life—family, community, design, relaxation, and history—in a home fits them best. That’s something I can get behind. I cannot wait to use the skills I’ve gained in financial advising to help people enjoy they places we’re building.”

Passionate about creating healthy communities for all, Andrews serves on the boards of two prominent non-profit organizations, The Raleigh Rescue Mission and Finding Purpose, a local men’s ministry.

Andrews and his wife, Julianne, were both born and raised in Raleigh and have a passion for living and working in the Triangle area. Together, they are the proud parents of their son Smith (Jr.), Kathryn Grace and 11-year-old black lab Bogue. Smith and his family share a love for the outdoors and can frequently be found along the North Carolina coast or on a family farm in Eastern N.C.

Coastal Charm in Little Washington

When David and Julie Howdy sold their waterfront home at Swan Point, they had country living in mind — 13 acres of land they’d purchased north of Washington, privacy, another dream home to be built. They never got it.

Lucky for them, they caught wind of the new development early on and reserved a unit in the recently completed Fairview Row. Read More...

With everything finalized at the end of last year, Beacon Street Development’s Fairview Row was an immediate sell out.
