Brian Smith


Brian Smith, an Accredited Land Consultant, Certified International Property Specialist, Broker/Associate, Ranch and Country Property Division, of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate - 45 years of farm and ranch real estate.

Brian is as passionate about country and ranch real estate as he is knowledgeable. He holds degrees in Earth Sciences and in Business Administration from the University of North Texas. He has been selling Ranch and Country Properties for over 45 years and is very well versed with knowledge of soils, grasses, pond construction and stocking rates, the creation of wildlife/waterfowl habitat and an understanding of minerals having worked as a drilling fluid engineer for Halliburton.  Other related experiences include being a breeder of race-bred quarter horses. He also has received the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) and Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designations in 1990 from the National Association of Realtors after years of study. Brian is known to give back to his industry and share his interests with others.

The Smith’s 730-acre ranch won the Lone Star Land Steward Award in 2011. This award is given by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Association for wildlife habitat enhancement of which Brian oversees at their ranch, “Trinity Bluff Wildlife Ranch” under a Level III Managed Lands Deer Program (MLDP). The Smith’s also share their love of the outdoors with school children, grades 1-7 and their teachers, through the L.A.N.D.S. courses (Learning Across New Dimensions in Science) in cooperation with the Texas Wildlife Association. Ranch and country properties have the ability to excite the senses, “The sights, the sounds, the wildlife in their natural habitat are all exhilarating.” What Brian loves the most about this category of real estate is seeing that excitement of the senses come to life by helping buyers and sellers realize what they can do to improve their land and how to optimize their resources.

In 1992, Brian was President of the State of Texas’ Realtor’s Land Institute.  He currently is serving on the National Association of REALTORS Land Use Committee (protecting private property rights), and was 2014-2015 NAR Presidential Liaison to Argentina. Brian has served as an expert witness for court cases involving mineral rights.  At the Texas Association of REALTORS, Brian has also worked with a task force to re-write the mineral reservation addendum. Additionally, his wife Leslie Rouda Smith, served as the 2012 Chairman of the Texas Association of REALTORS and recently as the 2022 President of the National Association of REALTORS.
