In May 2018, Amber Smith opened her agency as the youngest, African-American female State Farm Agent in Greensboro, N.C. In the first six months of opening, she obtained her Mortgage License and began serving as the only Mortgage Licensed State Farm agent in Greensboro. As a former Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty, Amber says it was important for her to continue to help others achieve their dreams of homeownership.

Besides being a business owner, Amber is also a wife and mother. She was raised in Greensboro and attended North East High School. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a concentration in Human Resources.

Currently, Amber serves on the Financial Committee at her local Church, New Goshen United Methodist Church. In addition, she is a Vacation Bible School Teacher and the Chair of the Status and Role of Women Committee, which promotes women’s empowerment. She is also a member of the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc., an organization that promotes the interest of African-American business and professional women and helps young people seeking to enter business professions.

As a young entrepreneur, Amber has been blessed to accomplish many things, beginning with her tenure at UNCG. During her final year, she interned with Sherwin Williams and immediately following graduation, she was promoted to Assistant Store Manager. Following this, she went on to participate in the intensive Business Sales Leadership Development Program with AT&T. This program was key in developing her as a young leader in sales.

Amber’s passion is to use her platform to help people in many ways; such as, buying homes, saving money for college, preparing for life mishaps, and most importantly educating our community on ways to properly prepare and insure their families. One of her favorite initiatives is our “Quotes for Good” Campaign where the agency donates money to a specific charity for each quote received. It’s her way of constantly giving back and serving the community in two ways: by providing monetary resources for local charities and by providing quotes that educate customers on the insurance and financial service products available at State Farm.
