Business has changed in the decades since Barry Smith started his real estate and auctioneering company in 1974. One thing that never changed was that Smith was at the helm. Until now.
At the start of the year, H. Barry Smith Realtors and Auctioneers got new owners, as longtime associate Jimmy Willard and his nephew, Shawn Willard, assumed ownership from Barry Smith.
It was an easy decision for Smith, 66, because as his business developed, the working hand of a Willard was always a constant.
