Darcy Smith –  Auctioneer & Buyer’s agent

Born in Melbourne, Darcy moved to Cairns on a permanent basis in 2005. Coming from a carpentry/building background of 20 years, he then made the transition to becoming  a sales agent in the year 2008. Immediately showing a flare for real estate, Darcy then went on to establish DJ Smith Property as a part business owner in 2011.

Darcy has not only used his creative skills to develop DJ Smith Property into a popular real estate brand, in quick time, but has also used workman like, dogged determination in becoming a top line confident salesman, capable of performing tough negotiations for great results. Darcy has then become an auctioneer and is a great advocate for selling property by way of auction.

Darcy has stepped down from selling property as a real estate agent and will now be focused on auctioning and providing a buyers agent service for clients looking for professional advice and a strategic edge in buying property in the Cairns market. This service will be available in 2018.
