Frank ‘Sandy’ Smith

SandyAside from it being his name on the letterhead, there are a multitude of reasons Sandy remains at the helm. Every day, the clients of Frank Smith Insurance & Real Estate benefit from his 50+ years of experience in the business. His 30 year association with the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC) is only one of his many achievements, certifications and awards, which are too numerous to name here. Sandy also believes strongly in giving back to his community. He serves on the NLC Board, the Citizen’s Union Board, and the Swansea Zoning Board. Sandy is also a retired Rotarian, a member of the Chamber of Commerce, and belongs to the Cedar Cove Club. When not at the office, which isn’t often, his passions are boating, spending time with his wife, Julie, and enjoying time with friends and family.
