Established in 2006, the Stallings & Smith Group was an independent real estate company working to create a new model for residential development in a challenging market. In 2009, the Group was absorbed into Russell & Jeffcoat in a mutually beneficial arrangement that provided the Group with the powerful presence of Russell & Jeffcoat in the Greater Columbia Market in return for the Group's acquired expertise. In the following months, Stallings & Smith began Rockbridge Village, a gated community of new construction in Forest Acres adjacent to Rockbridge Club and Spring Lake, and more recently, Tryst Point, a Lake Murray waterfront property comprised of nine lots. The principals of the Group are Tommy Stallings, a top producer and decorated veteran of Columbia real estate, and Walt Smith, who contributes his experience in contract negotiation, drafting, and real estate learned over a twenty-four year practice of law. Both are active in their community and dedicated to ethically and aggressively representing their real estate clients.
