More about Coya and Ryan Smith:

Coya has been in the real estate business for over twenty years. She started her real estate career at Coldwell Banker serving local sellers and buyers. During her first year with Coldwell Banker, Coya was awarded “Rookie of the Year” and has gone on to win many more awards, including Top Agent in the region. In order to give clients a more personal experience, Coya founded Smith Partners and Associates Real Estate. She continues to serve her clients by offering her vast experience and real estate knowledge.

Coya joined Coldwell Banker in the summer of 1987, when located on the corner of Burlington and Brainard. After spending many years and moving to the new location where Coldwell Banker is today, Coya won yearly awards as top in sales, volume and specialized in relocation, luxury marketing and home sales in LaGrange, Western Spring, Indianhead Park, Westchester, Oak Brook and surrounding areas.

In 1996, Coya joined RE/MAX Properties to give her clients maximum exposure, joining a brand name that led the market share, as well as had National Brand awareness with more experienced agents. This allowed Coya to have unlimited growth which she excelled at; having been named top 20% of RE/MAX Agents in Chicagoland and suburbs, as well as RE/MAX “Platinum” club yearly and RE/MAX “Hall of Fame.”

In 2008, Coya and Ryan expanded out to open a full service Real Estate company with an office TEAM to give clients individual team service, launching Smith Partners & Associates, Inc. As business has grown, so has the technology bursting into the market with mobile capabilities, social media, 3D virtual, drone photography and paperless transactions — and the Smith team has chosen, too, to grow with this ever growing market.
