Emily Smart Lemire, Founding Broker
Lydia Smart Fields, Lead Broker
Sister duo Emily Smart LeMire and Lydia Smart Fields have found success in their family team, the Smart LeMire Group, by providing the hands-on attention of a small business and the resources of a large, well-established one. Smart LeMire, the founding broker at Smart LeMire Group, and Smart Fields, the lead broker, each have 15 years of experience. Together, they serve customers of all types, including first-time buyers, investors, downsizers and more. Smart LeMire and Smart Fields primarily sell single-family homes and condominiums, specializing in the Chicago and greater North Shore markets.
Fueled by a love of design and architecture, Smart LeMire found her way into the real estate industry during college with the goal of building a brand. With an interest in interiors and decor, Smart Fields followed her sister into the industry soon after. Now with several years of experience in real estate, Smart LeMire and Smart Fields take the concept of a family-run business to the next level. Working with their father, Smart LeMire and Smart Fields strive to make their clients feel like family, too. “The most instrumental trait to our success is making each client feel as if we are working with only them,” they say. “They need to feel they are a priority at all times and can communicate with all team members at any time.”
Smart LeMire and Smart Fields focus on making each experience positive for their clients, leveraging all their strengths in order to do so — whether it’s their personal experiences living on the North Shore and in Chicago or their ability to envision the potential for each property they come across.
The team’s hard work has earned them several accolades. Smart LeMire has been a Chicago Association of Realtors top producer for several years running, as well as a Five Star Professional. She was also named one of Crain’s Chicago Business’ most influential real estate brokers.
