Korey Smith, Resident Technology Expert

Meet development associate Korey Smith, who is responsible for implementing The Jasper’s resident technology experience.  

Korey joined The Beach Company in 2018 after working as an analyst in New York Related at its Hudson Yards development, a mixed-use real estate project described as the cultural center of Manhattan’s New West Side.  

Korey’s background in implementing current technology equips him to lead the smart integrative services, which will make The Jasper experience innovative and adaptive. Korey is confident residents will not find technology like this anywhere else in Charleston. 

Along with leading The Jasper’s technology services, Korey is a liaison between property management and development. Korey emphasizes a consumer-first focus in his role to create a cohesive technology and customer service experience through Smart Home devices, Smart Access solutions, and Smart Community features.  

Korey said, “We consider our residents as stakeholders within our building. We want to serve them efficiently through technology and day-to-day interactions.” 

Korey also ensures data and wireless connections perform effectively, negotiates contracts, manages furniture and art design and installation, implements new technologies, and finds ways to provide residents with white-glove service.  

“The Jasper is a legacy project for everybody working on it,” Korey said. “It’s something that you’ll be able to look back on for the rest of your life and say you had a hand in making The Jasper what it is today.” 

Korey described how community events will become a meaningful part of the resident lifestyle at The Jasper. Wine tastings, rooftop yoga classes, flower arrangement lessons, and other exclusive events will welcome residents to engage with their community. 

Residents will also have easy access to the surrounding area, indulging in the best that King Street and Broad Street have to offer. Korey said the community will be a neighborhood and home to parks, waterfront shopping, culinary experiences, and on-the-water activities. 

Korey lives only a bike ride away from The Jasper, in the heart of downtown Charleston. He loves exploring the city’s restaurants, outdoor activities, and dynamic community. In his free-time, Korey enjoys riding his bike, playing golf and tennis, boating off the Ashley River, and going for strolls with his terrier Hootie, named after the South Carolina band Hootie & The Blowfish.  

Korey said it did not take long for him and his wife, Lindsay, to find sense of home in a city known for hospitality and friendliness.  

“I think Charleston is gaining momentum on the international scene,” Korey said. “I don’t see that slowing down anytime soon. It afforded us a better quality lifestyle where the living is easy.”
