Our Founder

When The Real Deal published a feature that exposed systemic racial profiling against Black sellers at a prominent New York real estate brokerage, Shalinthia (Sha) Miles-Smith became the target of workplace microaggressions, discrimination and industry blacklisting.


Shalinthia Miles Smith Company (SMS Company) is a fully insured, NYS/NYC MWBE consulting firm founded as a direct response to the racial inequities and economic disparities awakened at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
