The Smart Team


Pam Smartt, REALTOR®


I have lived in the New Braunfels/San Antonio area for over fifty years. With a strong faith and supportive family, I am dedicated to giving back to my community, both personally & professionally. Outside of real estate, I devote much of my time to activities supporting education and the schools in our area. I have been involved with the New Braunfels ISD Education Foundation since 2009 and currently serve on the NBISD DEIC Committee.

I currently serve on the Four Rivers Association of Realtors (FRAR) Scholarship Committee and am the committee liaison for Women’s Council of Realtors Hill Country Chapter’s Strategic Partners. I have previously served on the FRAR Board of Directors, the FRAR Governmental Affairs Committee, the FRAR Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee and the Keller Williams Heritage Associate Leadership Council. I am blessed to have been a multi-million dollar producer since 2005 and have been recognized as a top producer by the San Antonio Business Journal. I have been honored to receive the following awards: FRAR Realtor of the Year, Herald-Zeitung Readers Choice as Realtor of the Year, San Antonio Platinum Top 50, WCR Hill Country Chapter’ Entrepreneur of the Year and FRAR Comal County Positive Impact award.

I bring experience in residential, farm and ranch, and commercial real estate. I am thankful each day for the opportunity to serve others in a profession that allows me to meet amazing people and to help make their dreams of home ownership come true.


Amy Nelson, Director of Transactions/Operations


I am originally from the small town of Groveton, TX, located in the heart of Deep East Texas. I moved to the area in 2010 and worked in the Oil and Gas industry for about 6 years before deciding I needed a change of pace. I began taking my Real Estate courses and found my home with The Smartt Team. 

I joined the Team in April of 2016 and worked as the Transaction Coordinator while obtaining my real estate license in 2017. Being in that position for over 6 years I learned so much about real estate and how The Smartt Team strives to serve our clients. In July of 2022 I accepted the position as Team Leader and COO of the Team. I work closely everyday with our agents to help them grow and achieve their goals. We are dedicated to providing the best service that makes you feel like family.

When I’m not working with the Team I’m enjoying time with my husband, daughters and grandsons. We love to travel to the Colorado mountains and hit the Texas coast to go fishing.


Paula Durocher, REALTOR®


I have been in Real Estate for 13 years now. I got into Real Estate to help individuals and families reach their goals and dreams of buying and selling their homes. The Real Estate process can be very overwhelming, and I pride myself on helping clients understand the process every step of the way.

My husband and I will be married 25 years in March of this year. We have two children, and we live in Schertz, a small town located between San Antonio and New Braunfels. My children are the pride and joys of my life! My son is a Senior at Texas State University. His major is Wildlife Biology. When not at school you can find him fishing and Bouldering.  My daughter is a junior at Texas A&M University.  She is majoring in Animal Science with the goal of becoming a large animal Veterinarian. She is currently working at an animal research veterinary hospital on campus and also working at a local equestrian center.

I graduated from Southwest Texas State University and taught elementary school for 15 years in San Antonio before going into Real Estate. I joined Pam Smartt in 2010 and together we formed The Smartt Team, Your Smartt Texas Realtors. Having grown up in this area I can be a trusted resource for answers about our community. I have always been involved within my community and still am today. I have previously served on the Board of Directors for Four Rivers Association of Realtors ® in 2018 and 2019. I have been on the Scholarship Committee since becoming a Realtor® in 2010 and have previously served as the Co-Chair of this committee for our association. I am active in The Chamber, The Women’s Council of Realtors ®, where I served as the 2017 President, and the 2016 President Elect. I am also active in TREPAC.  Currently I am the Membership chair for Women’s Council of Realtors ® Hill Country Network and I am an Ambassador for The Chamber (Schertz, Cibolo, Selma). I am a 2020 graduate of the Texas Realtor® Leadership Program. This past year I received the Ambassador of the Year for The Chamber as well as the Member of the Year for Women’s Council, Hill Country Network. In 2011, I received the New Braunfels Board of Realtors ® Rookie of the Year award. And in December of 2015, I received the Women’s Council of Realtors Entrepreneur of the Year.

I look forward to a great 2024 and to helping you with all your Real Estate needs.


Patti McDaniel, REALTOR®


I have lived in the New Braunfels/Schertz and San Antonio area for over 50 years and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I have been a licensed real estate agent for over 7 years and absolutely love what I am doing. I was in apartment management  for 21 years prior to this, so it was not a huge transition from apartments to real estate. I really enjoy helping friends, family and clients that become friends buying and selling real estate. It is one of the biggest investments a person will make and I feel privileged to help. 

Being active in the community that I live and work in is very important to me. I am a member of the New Braunfels and Seguin Chamber of Commerce and I was a Commissioner of the Landmark Historical Committee in New Braunfels. I have been a member of the Women’s Council of Realtors Hill Country Network for the past 6 years and have been on the board for 4 years. I was involved in the New Braunfels High School FFA and a member of the Comal County Junior Livestock Association. 

My husband and I have been married for 33 years. We have two sons that went to school here in New Braunfels and both live here now as adults. As of August 2022, I am a first time Gigi! Life is good and I would love to help you with any of your real estate needs.
