Giovanna Richard


Originally from Portland, Maine, I am no stranger to coastal charm and hospitality. Having a passion for architecture and interior design, the draw to the South was a no-brainer for me. I moved to Charleston in 2015 to pursue an education in Business Administration where I instantly fell in love with the charm of the city. Throughout my time as an undergraduate at the College of Charleston, my zeal for real estate became concrete as I had the opportunities to work and study under some of the best luxury brokerages in Charleston.

A large part of my experience in luxury real estate is in building client relations. As a person who values relationships, both personally and professionally, I’ve found that communication and empathy are the cornerstones of a working relationship. And what I truly love about Charleston is the ability to constantly network and build strong relationships. As one of the fastest growing cities in the world, there’s nothing more important than being involved in our community.

Outside of utilizing my time finding the perfect homes for my clients, I am either traveling to new places for inspiration and to experience new cultures or arriving home to enjoy Charleston as best I can- which isn’t too difficult to do! With our beautiful beaches, marshes, restaurants, and recreational community, there is always an opportunity to find peace & fun (that’d be getting on the water & enjoying oysters downtown for me!) here in Charleston.

Now that you have more insight on me, I’d love to learn more about you! Feel free to reach out to chat about selling your property and or finding you your dream home- let’s make it happen!

    Get to know Giovanna Richard

    • What I did before Real Estate:

      Before Real Estate I was a waitress at Leon’s Oyster Shop. Waiting tables has tremendously contributed to my work ethic and hustle while giving me the opportunity to connect with Charleston’s community over tasty seafood!

    • My Real Estate Specialty:

      I specialize in clients relocating to the Charleston area and helping them determine which part of town best suits their needs. I also have an eye for design and always willing to help my sellers reorganize/decorate their home for the market.

    • What my clients say about me/why my clients choose to work with me:

      My clients say that my positive attitude constantly brightens their day and they appreciate how reliable and hardworking I am. Many of my clients have become some of closest friends!

    • What I love about Smith Spencer Real Estate:

      What I love most about Smith Spencer is the women empowerment culture and the focus everyone has on curating the best possible buying and selling experience for our clients. This is a team of extremely knowledgeable, intelligent, and charismatic women who will do the absolute most for their clients in order to make their dreams reality; it is not solely about selling the most homes, but creating the best relationships. I deeply value relationships and immediately felt connected to Smith Spencer.

    • What I love about Charleston:

      I could write a novel! Charleston is the most picturesque city that offers so much charm, coastline, and genuine people. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so much beauty. I think what I love most is the variety of activities that are all relatively close together. You can run the Ravenel Bridge in the morning, spend the day on Folly Beach, and make it back downtown for dinner. I love how interconnected our towns and communities are within the greater Charleston area.
