Brian D. Smith
Brian, known by his close friends and associates as Smitty or Smitdog, grew up in Southeast Arkansas as an avid hunter chasing ducks and deer any and everywhere he could get permission. He began turkey hunting in 2000 and has grown to love it. Brian’s passion is chasing the wild turkey followed by bow hunting the whitetail deer in a close second place and then duck hunting. His love for buying and selling farms and recreational properties for himself has fueled his passion to do it for others. “I understand the ins and outs of buying and selling outdoor recreational and investment property through traditional real estate companies, this is the very reason I have chosen to partner with Mossy Oak Properties. Mossy Oak Properties truly understands this unique market. You would not call a plumber for an electrical problem, same applies to outdoor recreational land, hire the experts.” Brian is dedicated to his faith, family, friends, employees, associates, clients and customers.

We met by happen stance through Daryl Trailer, founder of Hunting Sports Plus. I began looking at the possiblity of opening an office in the Hunting Sports Plus building and needing a broker to run the office and Daryl suggested Rayburn as an option. I spoke with Rayburn by phone and we immediately felt a connection and the the Lord had directed our paths. After finding out how qualified he was to lead our company I offered him the position of President of MOPH. We were very fortunate he accepted my offer. I describe him as a man of faith, integrity and trust that leads by example. Brian Smith, CEO/Founder of MOPH
