About HomeSmart Realty Group
Judy Orr started her real estate career in 1983 with a local Century 21 franchise in Illinois. Although she stayed with the company for 22 years, she always felt something was missing.
Judy then joined a local, independent company and was with them for around 9 years. They moved out of Judy's main area so she had a decision to make. Judy's husband Jimmy Herter got licensed in 2011 and they were a husband-and-wife team.
During their search for another local brokerage, they received an e-mail notifying them that HomeSmart Realty Group was opening in their main town in IL.
That's all they needed to hear - they were struggling to find a place they wanted to hang their licenses with and once they found out HomeSmart was opening in their main area, they jumped on board. They were told that their prior independent brokerage was based on HomeSmart's business model. So they had known about HomeSmart for 9 years before joining them.
When Judy and Jimmy moved to Arizona full-time they stuck with HomeSmart. Jimmy did not get licensed in Arizona but he is Judy's transaction coordinator, driver, and all-around helper.

Below is the HomeSmart timeline - it came out a little wonky since I couldn't do any kind of screenshot using my variety of tools, so this is a copy and paste. It still shows the history from 2000 to 2021.
