Charles Curry

Head of Marketing

Charles Curry oversees marketing for Smart Agents & Authorify. He has been shaping real estate marketing strategies since 2008, when he first started building real estate lead-generation campaigns for his brothers. By 2012, other agents were asking for Charles’s marketing secrets, so he crafted his first "Listing Funnel.” Charles’s funnel taught agents the exact steps he used to guide clients on a journey from lead to appointment to listing to the closed deal.

After testing the original Listing Funnel with 100 agents in markets all over the USA & Canada, the results were undeniable. Demand for Charles’s insights continued to increase and by 2015, he launched Listing Funnels tailored to different niches, including Expired, Inherited, Divorces, Vacant Homes, and FSBOs.

Now Charles manages Lead-to-Listing Generation for 6,317 Realtors across the USA & Canada. He regularly shares his strategies with the Smart Agents community through the Smart Agents social media channels, Smart Agents Magazine, member workshops, and coaching.
