Yeadon Smith

Live Oak Capital

Yeadon was born in Texas, but his family moved home to Summerville, SC when he was eight years old. He was homeschooled from 3rd grade all the way through highschool, then moved out west to El Paso TX to work at an orphanage in Mexico for a year doing ministry work. When he moved home to Summerville 11 years later, it was with his wife and two children to consider a call to full time pastoral ministry.

He discerned that he was not called to the pastorate, and launched a career in real estate. At the same time he started his real estate career, the family of four grew to a family of six! Yeadon was one of the top producing real estate agents in his market while he was active in the residential transaction side of real estate. But the transactional nature of the business was burning him out. Yeadon partnered with his cousin, Jennings to build a property management company in 2018. From there, he quickly saw the potential of apartment investing and multifamily syndication.

In 2019 he found his first apartment deal and syndicated it with his partner, Jennings. After the first deal, the possibilities exploded. He focused on operations and efficiency and grew assets under management from $1mil to $30mil over the next 18 months.
