Meet Lamar Smith. Lamar is founder and president of the Lamar Smith Group. Over the past 20 years, he has built a reputation on vision, integrity, and respect for the natural beauty of Coastal Georgia.From land development to commercial building to residential construction, his goal has always been to enrich communities - to create places that aesthetically and functionally make the community a better place to live.
After observing the effects of the new economy, Lamar knew he could and should 'redefine the affordable home.' He believes families deserve a quality home that will accommodate their lifestyle and offer plenty of space for a growing family - at a price that the average family can afford. That spirit created Lamar Smith Homes.
Over the years, he has studied responsible land development strategies and New Urbanism to maximize green space and decrease unplanned urban sprawl. Lamar grew up in Reidsville, Georgia, and graduated from the University of Georgia. His family includes his wife, Edie, and two sons, Taylor and Steven. His spiritual and family life is an integral part of his professional life.
His dedication to family and community include serving on the Coastal Area YMCA Board, fund-raising for The Boy Scouts, supporting the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Pinewood Christian Academy, in addition to assisting many organizations that benefit children and help a community grow. His hobbies and enjoyment span piloting his plane and wing shooting to traveling with his family.
