The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Brenda McCarter Smith as a 2016-2017 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in real estate and business. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I’m pleased to welcome Brenda into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”

Self-motivated, results oriented and driven to succeed, Brenda McCarter Smith is a seasoned professional who has constantly set her goals to keep pace with her highest aspirations for personal excellence. Throughout her career, she has exhibited exemplary teamwork, expertise, integrity and dedication.

When it was known the 1982 World’s Fair would be coming to Knoxville, TN, there was talk of a room shortage in the area. As a result, Mrs. Smith’s father decided to build Hidden Mountain after purchasing a few lots in a development. In October of 1981, Hidden Mountain Chalet and Log Cabin Rentals, located just off a gravel road, opened with seven units. Within a few months, there were 25 units and four new partners. Eventually, Mrs. Smith and her husband became the sole owners. Eventually, hardships and financial problems resulted in their decision to sell the units individually. This gave them a net to fall back on and they were able to take their profits and create more properties, while still owning Hidden Mountain.

Hidden Mountain made a turn for the better and now has over 300 units, accommodating guests from all over the world! Mrs. Smith decorated each cabin and they are the very finest accommodations in the Smokies. As seen on the company’s website, “we want our guests to have the best possible vacation and we will do our part to make it happen.”

The unwavering dedication demonstrated by Mrs. Smith fully utilizes the aspirations for success that have earned her this recognition from the National Association of Professional Women, honoring her as an inspiration and a leader in her industry.
