Professional Summary

Paula Clair Smith, CCIM, joined Colliers as a Director of Commercial Services in February 2016 and was promoted to Managing Director by the end of 2017. As a longtime Pinellas County resident, Paula conveys a wealth of knowledge of the local commercial real estate market.  Her experience in office, industrial and redevelopment spans 20 years, making her extremely valuable to Colliers and her clients.


Paula has been involved in the Tampa Bay commercial real estate market since leaving a marketing career in 1998. She works with  a variety of local investors and business  owners along with very special non-profits  such as the St. Petersburg Free Clinic and  the Tampa Bay SPCA.

Her notable accomplishments include  participating in the All Children’s Hospital  expansion throughout the Tampa Bay area for the past 17 years, and continues building alongside Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital as a tenant and buyer representative. The Hunter Douglas Corporation relied on Paula’s mastery in the  disposition of their 131,500 square foot  facility.

Most recently Paula worked at Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT before transferring her skills to the Colliers International platform. She remains active in identifying and contracting on medical office buildings, industrial/manufacturing facilities, the leasing of multi-tenant complexes and assembling blocks of St. Petersburg’s downtown for redevelopment. Paula has worked in conjunction with most municipalities in Pinellas County and contributes much of her success to those relationships. As Director at Colliers, Paula was responsible for nearly $17M in sales and leases transacted in 2017 and over $16M in 2018.  In recognition for her achievements, she received the #3 Top Producer Investment Award/National Division from FGCAR for 2018.


Paula holds a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Miami University and earned her CCIM
