Vanessa Smith

Vanessa Smith is passionate about helping her clients find their dream home- in particular, first-time home buyers making the first big investment of their lives. She understands the process of looking for a new home requires attention to details, flexibility and a commitment to see the process through to the end. She provides honest and friendly service with your affordability needs at the forefront.


Ms.Smith brings to Niche Realty/ArtHouse Chicago her knowledge of buying and renovating her own house in Hermosa. She understands the need for flexible, specialized spaces for her client’s creative work - she turned the dark basement unit of her home into a beautiful garden studio and library. Vanessa is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and worked for different art galleries early in her career where she curated and installed exhibitions. As a part of Chicago's early burgeoning alternative spaces scene, she ran an art gallery in a Pilsen attic for two years.
