I am a lifelong resident of Garrett County, growing up on the shores of Deep Creek Lake. My family has had many successful businesses here in Garrett County since the 40’s. I have been blessed to learn from the best. From my grandparents Gus & Alice Heise, Uncle & Aunt Helmuth & Evelyn Heise to my parents Carroll & Doris Smith. Being a hard worker is in my blood. Garrett County, Deep Creek Lake is my life and home! Garrett County has been a wonderful place to be raised, and to raise my family here and generations to come!

I have been married to Kimberly Owston-Smith for 26 years. Kim and I have three daughters, Abbigayle, Kassandra and MacKenzie. My family enjoys all seasons of Garrett County. Whether we are on the slopes or on the shores of Deep Creek Lake, family is what is most important. We are so blessed to call this our home!

Let me help you make everlasting memories with your loved ones and friends. 

Over the years I have volunteered for numerous organizations, I have been a member of the Wisp Ski Patrol for 27 years. I have been a Junior Golf Coach at the Oakland Golf Club, which was a great way to spend time with my 3 daughters and other children during the summer.

I have been a soccer coach for the Mt. Top Soccer League for over 9 years until my youngest daughter advanced to high school soccer at which time I followed her and became a coach and then head coach for the Southern Lady Rams. 

I am a member at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Oakland and St. Peter’s Lake Center. Garrett County has so much to offer, so let me show you and your family why our family loves Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County.”
