Tammy Smith, Business Banking Officer and Business Center Leader in Cary, North Carolina, started her banking career in Charlotte.
In 2008, she left the industry to become a stay-at-home mom. Some 15 years later when her youngest son graduated high school, she re-entered the workforce and moved to the Raleigh/Cary area.
She joined HomeTrust in 2022 and takes pride in forming relationships with business owners to help them meet their financial goals. She is active in the Women Business Owners Network of the Triangle, Dress for Success, and Communities in Schools, and she is particularly passionate about supporting women-owned businesses as a result of her own experiences building a professional and family life.
Her expertise includes small business lending, SBA loans, retail-equity lines of credit, commercial loans for owner-occupied real estate, and loans for working capital or capital expenditures. She has handled $2MM in refinancing for a learning academy in the Durham area; a roughly $2MM SBA loan for the purchase of a gas station in Monroe, North Carolina; and $565,000 in financing for a woman-owned champagne bar in Cary.
Tammy is an Ambassador for the Cary Chamber of Commerce and holds a National Mortgage License and a Life Insurance License.
She lives in Holly Springs outside of Raleigh and loves spending time with her husband of more than 35 years, three children, five grandchildren, and Yorkie-poo. All of her immediate family members live within 15 minutes of her house.
